My uncles laptop is connecting fine to the wireless network and is being assigned a IP address but webpages will not load in IE/Firefox. I cannot ping thru cmd, and MSN messenger is not working...

He's using a Linksys wireless D Notebook adapter. The router is also a linksys so I doubt there is a compatibility issue.

(it's currently connecting to the same network I'm posting from so the network isn't the problem)

Help?

Start, Run, CMD, OK to open a command prompt:

Type the following command:

IPCONFIG /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.

Disable ICS (maybe on dial-up? or ethernet?) . Then set the wireless connection's TCP/IP properties to 'obtain IP address' and 'obtain DNS auto.'

I changed it to obtain those two automatically - but couldn't find the ICS thing...

Also, the laptop is connecting to the network and then disconnecting from it after a few minutes, after that I can't usually reconnect until I restart.

Could be that both the Linksys and Windows XP's WZC utilities are running and conflicting. Whichever you are using make sure the other one is not running. If still having disconnect problems, try the other utility.

Make sure you have the latest wireless adapter driver.

(From a JohnWill post)

TCP/IP stack repair options for use with Windows XP with SP2.

Start, Run, CMD, OK to open a command prompt.

Reset WINSOCK entries to installation defaults: netsh winsock reset catalog

Reset TCP/IP stack to installation defaults. netsh int ip reset reset.log

Reboot the machine.
