    I have recently set up a home network using a Netgear DG834G router and my Dell Inspirion 510m wireless laptop refuses to connect to the Internet via IE6 whether connected to the router wirelessly or wired. This laptop is used in the office where it works just fine through a proxy server on the wired LAN. When used at home I either switch off the proxy server or use a different profile which does not have a proxy server, but so far no joy.

    I have had various bits of advice and it would appear that the settings are right but I would be happy to receive any suggestions as I am desperate to solve this problem - it was the reason I purchased a wireless notebook & router.

    Just guessing here but if I go and change from having the router to not having it I have to renew my IP address.

    I have windows 98 and go to run and type in Winipcfg. Then click on reless all. Now click on renew all.
    This is something your have to do each time you change you setup from using your PC with a router and then without one and the other way around.

    Not sure what operating system is on the Dell Inspirion 510m but it looks pretty new. If it has XP or Windows2000, the WINIPCFG is not part of the operating system.

    To find your IP address, open a cmd prompt
    Then run IPCONFIG /ALL

    See if the IP information (IP address, subnet mask, gateway and DNS addresses) are correct for the location.

    Start-->Run type cmd hit enter. Then try the ipconfig command. I think you are just typing it in the "Run" box.

    Also, after you have run the ipconfig, run a Route Print as well. If the route to the proxy box is persistent, it could cause an issue.

    Make sure you are getting assigned IP information that is correct for the location.

    At the same cmd prompt try pinging several locations:

    1. Ping the router's IP address (e.g. ping 192.168.0.1)
    2. Ping an external site by IP address (e.g. ping 199.181.164.1). If this doesn't work you are not going get much farther.
    3. Ping an external web site by name (e.g. ping www.yahoo.com)

    You were right. The values now appear to be correct (same as desktop except IP Address one digit greater).

    But still no Internet ..................?

    How do you run Route Print (excuse my ignorance)?
