    can we have some detail on your connection

    make and model of the router and modem if seperate
    how many PC do you have connected
    what windows version do you have

    then lets see from your setup



    ------------------------------------------------------------------------
    {run Xirrus Wi-Fi Inspector} Download and install
    If you cannot access the internet with this PC, then you will need to copy the program across to the faulty PC

    http://www.xirrus.com/library/wifitools.php
    Direct link to the program is here http://www.xirrus.com/library/wifi_download_redirect.php
    Then run and install the program
    if you get an error - You need NET Framework installed for the WiFi Inspector to function.

    Run the program

    post a screen shot of the program running - if there are a lot of networks showing can you click on "networks" top lefthand area - so we can see all the network information, and also post which network "Adapter Name" (1st column) is yours on the list

    To post a screen shot of the active window, hold the Alt key and press the PrtScn key. Open the Windows PAINT application and Paste the screen shot. You can then use PAINT to trim to suit, and save it as a JPG format file.
    To upload it to the forum, open the full reply window and use the Manage Attachments button to upload it here.

    Note:
    For a reliable (or robust as the Xirrus user guide says) wireless connection you need a signal of about -70 dBm or better.
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------

    ------------------------------------------------------------------------
    {Device Manager}
    Post back the results in device manager
    If you cannot access the internet with this PC, then you will need to copy the program across to the faulty PC
    Start > control Panel {Vista set to classic view}> system > {Vista, device manager on left hand side} {XP hardware Tab, device manager button} >
    windows 7
    start > control panel> System and Security> Device Manager

    network adaptors, click on the + > post back the devices listed there
    are there any ! ? or X


    post a screen shot of the device manager - network adapters

    To post a screen shot of the active window, hold the Alt key and press the PrtScn key. Open the Windows PAINT application and Paste the screen shot. You can then use PAINT to trim to suit, and save it as a JPG format file.
    To upload it to the forum, open the full reply window and use the Manage Attachments button to upload it here
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------


    ------------------------------------------------------------------------
    {ipconfig /all}
    If you cannot access the internet with this PC, then you will need to paste the results into something like notepad and then copy onto a machine that can access the internet and post results here

    We would like to see the results from ipconfig /all post back the results in a reply here

    Hold the Windows key and press R, then type CMD then press Enter to open a command prompt box (A new dialogue box - black with white font, will appear on screen ):

    In the command prompt window that opens, type the following command:

    Note that there is a space before the /ALL, but there is NOT a space after the / in the following command.

    ipconfig /all > network.txt & network.txt

    It will export the results to notepad and then automatically open notepad.

    Now all you need to do is copy and paste those results to a reply here
    to do that:
    From the notepad menu - choose Edit - Select all
    all the text will be highlighted
    Next
    From the notepad menu - choose Edit - Copy
    Now go back to the forum - reply and then right click in the reply box and paste

    I'm posting a solution, in case it helps anyone else out.

    I have a Vista.


    1. I went to "Network and Sharing Center".
    2. Then, clicked "Manage network connections".
    3. On the connection I want to use, I right-clicked then chose "Properties".
    4. A pop-up appeared.
    5. Under "This connection uses the following items", I unchecked everything except:
      • Client for Microsoft Networks (remains checked)
      • Internet Protocol Version 4 (remains checked)
    6. Then, pressed OK, and the Internet started working.
    The next step, is for me to check each item in the connection Properties, until the connection stops working again. That way I will know which item is corrupted.

    NOTE: The above instructions are a simplified version of what I tried. Because I was trying everything under the sun at the same time. It's hard to know if any of it helped. Here is what else I did:

    • I ran "msconfig", chose "Selective startup", unchecked "Load startup items", under the Services tab chose "Hide all Microsoft services", disabled the rest. (After the network connection was working, I did undo these options, so the system would be back to normal.)
    • Restarted in "Safe mode with networking".
    • Unchecked all the items in the network connection properties, and pressed OK. Then, went back and turned on just the two items mentioned above (Client for MS Networks, and IPv4).
    • Something I even tried earlier was turned off the computer, unplugged it, and held the power button down for 1 minutes (because someone said this would drain any extra charge that could be causing a problem)...oh, and I sacrificed a chicken while I was at it (not really). I also tried holding power while the power adapter was plugged in because I couldn't understand how the computer would discharge unless the extra charge had somewhere to go.
