    Hi, I'm using HP Pavilion dv6000 Entertainment PC (Laptop) with Windows Vista O/S. Recently my Ethernet connction in the PC damaged due to a lightning (device manager in the pc says Netwaork card is working properly and request to plug-in the Ethernet cable. But it doesn't work). So I decided to use a wireless router (ADSL) to connect to the Internet.

    My PC says it has connected to a wireless nwetwork, but cannot establish a link with the Internet. I'm using a U.S.Robotics (Model 9108 A) wireless G router. I've got it correctly configured using another desktop PC of one of my friends and Internet can be accessed without ant problem through the Ethernet port on that PC.

    The only option left with me to use wireless facility on the said router, as the only Ethernet Port is damaged in my laptop. Need your help on this.

    Thank you,

    First Name:
    its possible the wireless has also been damaged

    post an ipconfig /all also device manager see below fo rhow

    it may be secruity - take of the wireless secruity , cordless phones can stop this working correctly on certain channels

    Ipconfig on Vista
    Vista does not handle permissions the same as XP.
    Locate the command prompt short cut in your start menu. Right click it, choose run as administrator, then try the ipconfig.

    If you want to always have the command prompt run with elevation
    Right-click the command prompt icon, choose Properties
    Select the Shortcut tab
    Click on Advanced
    Check Run as administrator

    ipconfig /all

    TWO Methods to do that - some people have problems with ONE----

    ONE ---------------------------------
    ipconfig /all

    rightclick in the box
    select all
    control key + C key - to copy
    then reply here and
    control key + V to paste

    TWO -----------------------------------------------

    Start, Run, CMD to open a DOS window and type:


    Open C:\RESULT.TXT with Notepad and copy/paste the entire results here.

    Device manager
    control panel>
    hardware tab>
    device manager button>

    click on the + sign
