Hi guys,

Apologies in advance, complicated situation here as I am on a german laptop in the UK...
I just got a new internet provider and tried to set up our wireless connection on 2 laptops. Works fine on one of them, only works via ethernet on the other one. When not connected via an ethernet, it says that the connection is established but I still cannot browse.

After doing research for some hours, we decided to use static IPs, which solved the initial problem of having no/limited connectivity (a little error message kept on popping up, telling us that we have perfect connection, strong signal, but no connectivitiy). So using static IPs solved this problem, one laptop works perfectly fine now, the other can only connect via ethernet.

My firewall is disabled for the purpose of trying to fix this.

Laptop: Aspire 1355LC
Operating system: Windows XP, Services Pack 2
My wireless network card: Netgear WG511v2 54 54 Mps
Router: BT Voyager 2110 Wireless ADSL Router
Internet Provider: madasafish

ip config:

I appreciate any help I can get as I seriously have no idea what I am doing at all.

Thanks a lot!!

Your network settings look OK.
Open internet explorer,click file at the top of the page
and make sure there is not a check mark next to "work offline"
If there is,click it to remove the check mark.

Assigning a static IP to get rid of the "no/limited connectivity" is an excellent way to mask whatever problem you are having. Now to determine whether you are communicating with the router you need to do the additional step of pinging it.

Your network settings look OK if they are correct and if you do not intend to resolve web names when using the wireless. For that you need, of course, to assign a DNS server.

If you want to get this working, change both the wireless and ethernet back to dynamic, disable encryption on the router, try to connect again via both ethernet and wireless and post another ipconfig /all please.

Thanks so much for your help guys!!

@Leroys1000
Work offline is not ticked, so that can't be it.

@TerryNet
I changed wireless and ethernet back to dynamic, disabled encryption on router and it works perfectly fine now on both laptops, wireless and with ethernet. I switched my firewall back on - working perfectly well. Hoewver I am without any security settings now, is that corect? Not a very nice situation..

Here's my ipconfig all:

Try these simple tests.

Hold the Windows key and press R, then type CMD 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 216.109.112.135

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.

Now you should be able to re-enable encryption and reconnect. Use WPA-PSK (or WPA2) if possible. If you have to use WEP use a HEX key, not an ascii passcode.

Hi again,

Problem solved. Put wireless security back on (WPA key, MAC filtering), everything is working perfectly on both laptops.

Could someone maybe explain what was wrong with the settings before? Curious!

THANKS SO MUCH!!!(y)

Well, DHCP being disabled is my top suspect. :) Maybe it was the phase of the moon? :D
