I did tried to update an old modem about a week ago and ever since I cannot connect to the internet. I have two laptops and works fine. I have a wireless set up.

I just tried plugging in the Ethernet connection to the laptop to no avail. Still no connection.

Info:

HP Compaq nc6230
Wireless setup

I tried connecting to other unsecured wireless networks in the area and still was not able to access the internet.

Please help.

Thank you.

Thanks. Will do this and post it.

Also, an update.

Now after tweaking some more I got both laptops online but only via someone elses unsecured wireless network in the area. And, now neither laptop can get online with my wireless modem.

I did this. But I still can't get online.

Then I restarted the computer and did another ipconfig /all

The results came out the same. Still shows disabled for NetBIOS over Tcpip.

Rechecked the settings and is still checked enable NetBIOS Over TCP/IP

What else can I try?

Let's get some information about the environment and do a few tests.



Please supply the following info, exact make and models of the equipment please.

Name of your ISP (Internet Service Provider).
Make and exact model of the broadband modem.
Make and exact model and hardware version of the router (if a separate unit).
Make and exact model and hardware version of any other network equipment, like a repeater, a booster, hi-gain antenna, etc.
Model numbers can usually be obtained from the label on the device.
Connection type, wired or wireless.
If wireless, encryption used, (none, WEP, WPA, or WPA2)
Version and patch level of Windows on all affected machines, i.e. XP (Home or Pro), SP1-SP2-SP3, Vista (Home, Business, Ultimate), etc.
The Internet Browser in use, IE, Firefox, Opera, etc.




Please give an exact description of your problem symptoms, including the exact text of any error messages.



  • Have you tried to do a system restore to before the problem occurred?
  • If you're using a wireless connection, have you tried a direct connection with a cable to see if that changes the symptoms?
  • For wireless issues, have you disabled all encryption on the router to see if you can connect that way?
  • For wireless laptops, have you made SURE the wireless switch is on?
  • For wired connection issues, have you booted in Safe Mode with Networking to see if that changes the symptoms?
  • Have you connected directly to the broadband modem to see if this is a router or modem/ISP issue?
  • If there are other computers on the same network, are they experiencing the same issue, or do they function normally?




On any affected computer, I'd also like to see this:

Hold the Windows key and press R, then type CMD (COMMAND for W98/WME) to open a command prompt:

Type the following commands on separate lines, following each one with the Enter key:

PING 74.125.45.100

PING yahoo.com

NBTSTAT -n

IPCONFIG /ALL


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

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.
