Windows 7 - Connected to Wireless Network, But No Internet Access
Hi,

I have an HP Pavilion dv6-2088d laptop. I can connect wirelessly to my home network and others (eg Starbucks, friends, etc) however when I try connect to my parents BT Home Hub, I can connect to the network but it shows no internet access.

Can anyone help?

Thanks in advance

Please attach a screen shot of the Networks page of the Xirrus Wi-Fi Inspector and show ...

Start, Run, CMD, OK to open a command prompt:
(For Vista or 7 type CMD in the Search box after Start)

Type the following command:

IPCONFIG /ALL

[Note that there is no space between the slash and ALL.]

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

If necessary use a text file and removable media to copy the results to a computer with internet access.

Hi Terrynet,
I am connected to a different network at the moment and I have internet access. Do you want me to run the command while connected to the network that I dont have internet access?

The network i am trying to access is BT Infinity and I have heard that it might have something to do with BT Fon and BT Openzone, that these could be interferring with the network.

Just a thought

Disable encryption and MAC Address filtering on the router and try to connect. If successful you can probably re-enable encryption and reconnect.

A major reason for requesting the Xirrus Inspector output is to look for possible wireless interference.

Ok, I'll run Xirrus.

How do I disable MAC Address filtering and encryption?

Login to the router, navigate to the wireless section and set the encryption (or security) mode to 'none' or 'off' or similar. Finding MAC Address filtering (or Access Control) can be more of a challenge to find the right section. The user manual on CD or manufacturer's web site should have specifics.

Can you change your "real" network to use channel 11 (or higher) while leaving those other two on channel 6? If so, that may solve your problem.
