I am trying to connect to a Net Gear router wirelessly. I have added the network and password to my preferred networks list. The signal strength says very strong, but when I try to connect it says that it could not connect and that the network may be out of range and to refresh the network list and try again. I did this and the same message continued to come up. I tried repairing the connection, but this didn't work either. Everyone else can connect with their laptops with no problem and I have had no trouble connecting to any other wireless networks. What do I do?

Please pot the results of an ipconfig /all for both a wired and wireless adapter.

That IPCONFIG shows a good wireless connection to the router.


Try these simple tests.

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:

IPCONFIG

PING <computer_IP_address>

PING <default_gateway_address>

PING 206.190.60.37

PING yahoo.com


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

<computer_IP_address> - The IP Address of your computer, obtained from the IPCONFIG command above.

<default_gateway_address> - The IP address of the Default Gateway, 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.

You have an Internet connection and can successfully ping Internet sites by IP address and URL.

Looks like it's working to me.
