Solved: Connect via ethernet but not wireless
Hi i hope somebody can help, about a month back my internet was running really inconsistent (one minute running fine the next really slow), then the other day it just wouldn't connect, message read : "Internet Explorer cannot Display the WebPage" when i click Diagnose Connection Problems, it says DNS may be down. Also MSN Messanger wont connect either and the errors from the Diagnosis from that were the DNS, and Key Ports. The only way i can connect is via the ethernet cable, any idea what is the problem? Im sure it is some thing very simple but my computer skills are minimul. Thankyou for taking time to read this and hopefully help.

No reason for huge fonts, we can read the standard sized ones just fine.

Please supply the following info, exact make and models of the equipment please.

Name of your ISP (Internet Service Provider).
Make and exact model of the broadband modem.
Make and exact model and hardware version of the router (if a separate unit).
Make and exact model and hardware version of any other network equipment, like a repeater, a booster, hi-gain antenna, etc.
Model numbers can usually be obtained from the label on the device.
Connection type, wired or wireless.
If wireless, encryption used, (none, WEP, WPA, or WPA2)
Version and patch level of Windows on all affected machines, i.e. XP (Home or Pro), SP1-SP2-SP3, Vista (Home, Business, Ultimate), etc.
The Internet Browser in use, IE, Firefox, Opera, etc.




Please give an exact description of your problem symptoms, including the exact text of any error messages.


  • Have you tried to do a system restore to before the problem occurred?
  • If you're using a wireless connection, have you tried a direct connection with a cable to see if that changes the symptoms?
  • For wireless issues, have you disabled all encryption on the router to see if you can connect that way?
  • For wireless laptops, have you made SURE the wireless switch is on?
  • For wired connection issues, have you booted in Safe Mode with Networking to see if that changes the symptoms?
  • Have you connected directly to the broadband modem to see if this is a router or modem/ISP issue?
  • If there are other computers on the same network, are they experiencing the same issue, or do they function normally?




On any affected computer, I'd also like to see this:

Hold the Windows key and press R, then type CMD (COMMAND for W98/WME) to open a command prompt:

Type the following commands on separate lines, following each one with the Enter key:

PING 74.125.45.100

PING yahoo.com

NBTSTAT -n

IPCONFIG /ALL


Right click in the command window and choose Select All, then hit Enter.
Paste the results in a message here.

If you are on a machine with no network connection, use a floppy, USB disk, or a CD-RW disk to transfer a text file with the information to allow pasting it here.

First step would be to enable DHCP on the wireless connection.


Configure DHCP for Windows Vista & Windows 7
  1. Click on the Start menu, and select Control Panel.
  2. Click on Network and Internet. (Skip this step if you do not see this Control Panel item.)
  3. Click on Network and Sharing Center.
  4. Click on Manage network connections.
  5. Right click on Connection you wish to change and choose Properties. If Windows say it needs your permission to continue, click Continue.
  6. Select Internet Protocol Version 4(TCP/IPv4) and click Properties.
  7. Select Obtain an IP address automatically.
  8. Select Obtain DNS server address automatically.
  9. Click OK to close the TCP/IP Properties window.
  10. Click OK to close the Local Area Connection Properties window.
  11. Click Close to close the Network Connections window.
  12. Click Close to close the Control Panel window.
  13. Restart your computer.
