Able to connect to network but no internet connection
I have a Dlink DIR-655 router which is currently connected and set up to my network. I worked perfectly for a few months but then my internet all of a sudden stop working. So I called costomer service and the tech. told me to go to Tools>Internet Options>Connections>LAN Settings> Advanced, he then told me to change the HTTP and Port to his new settings. This magicly fixed my intenet connection on my desktop (XP) but when I tried to use the wireless on my laptops (Vista and Mac OS) nothing happend. The status on both laptops say "Connected" but the internet doesn't work. I have been researching this for quite some time now but haven't found a solution. Any help would be GREATLY APPRECIATED! Thank you- Drakb

Try these tests from the working machine and one of the non-working ones.



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

In the command prompt window that opens, type type the following commands one at a time, followed by the Enter key:

NOTE: For the items below in red surrounded with < >, see comments below for the actual information content, they are value substitutions from the previous IPCONFIG command output! Do NOT type <computer_IP_address> into the command, that won't work. Also, the < and > in the text is to identify the parameters, they are also NOT used in the actual commands.

Do NOT include the <> either, they're just to identify the values for substitution.


IPCONFIG /ALL

PING <computer_IP_address>

PING <default_gateway_address>

PING <dns_servers>

PING 74.125.45.100

PING yahoo.com


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

<computer_IP_address> - The IP Address of your computer, obtained from the IPCONFIG command above. (For Vista/Win7, the IPv4 Address)

<default_gateway_address> - The IP address of the Default Gateway, obtained from the IPCONFIG command above.

<dns_servers> - The IP address of the first (or only) address for DNS Servers, obtained from the IPCONFIG command above.


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.

Are you going to post the pings for this one, and the IPCONFIG /ALL and pings from the other machine?

Read John's post # 2 several times. If there is something there that's imperfect or that you don't understand please tell us exactly what that is. John has spent a heck of a lot of time and effort on that post and I think that he is running out of ideas of how to improve it.

Ok, I know how to IPCONFIG/ALL, and i know how to ping. Where there is PING <computer_IP_adress>
PING <default_gateway_adress>
PING <dns_servers>
What do i do there? Would I do this for the default_gatway_adress?

Ok, that show you can ping your router. Now try these two:

PING 74.125.45.100

PING yahoo.com

They will help determine if there is a problem between your router and the modem, or on the WAN side of your modem.

I put this in large print so you couldn't miss it, if I could flash it, I would.

You have internet access and DNS is working. Do you still have any issue?

You can make it flash in Firefox using the <blink> tag. Too bad IE never supported it.
