    I have a few laptops in my house and everyones laptop has no problem connecting to the internet, except mine. Only way I can connect to the internet is from using an ethernet cable. I've had this problem once before, but I think someone paid to fix it. Does anyone know the solution to this problem? I'd greatly appreciate any help.

    Thanks, Corey.

    can we see the following
    ipconfig /all when connected by ethernet and thne again when disconnected and connected by wireless
    also an xirrus screen shot

    ------------------------------------------------------------------------
    {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 here
    -> Start
    -> (XP - enter the following in the RUN box)
    cmd /k ipconfig /all
    -> (Vista or Windows 7 - enter the following in the Search box)
    cmd /k ipconfig /all

    A black box will appear on the screen -
    rightclick in the box
    select all
    enter
    control key + C key - to copy

    then reply here and
    control key + V to paste
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------

    ------------------------------------------------------------------------
    {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.

    you need to enable DHCP on the wireless connection so that it automatically assigns an IP and DNS server

    Setup to Automatically get IP and DNS

    FOR XP
    To setup PC on XP to use DHCP
    follow these instructions - if wireless - choose the wireless connection

    Setup to Automatically get IP and DNS - FOR vista

    FOR windows 7

    Looking at the xirrus screen shot - you should also change the wireless channel , I would suggest 6 to avoid interference from those other networks on channel 11

    but first see if the change to obtain IP automatically has helped on the wireless connection
