Thread: Wireless Connection active but no internet

  1. Wireless Connection active but no internet

    I have a puzzling problem with my HP7010 Laptop on which I'm running XP
    Service Pack 2.

    My network connections are telling me I'm connected to the internet when
    I connect through it's Broadcom 802.11B/G card that is built in. But I
    cannot access the internet through IE or any of my programs. I also
    cannot access my local home network. I have the same problem when I
    connect it by cable directly to my router. My 2 other computers are
    having no difficulty accessing the router via wireless connections or cable.

    To further make matters strange, my laptop is accessing the internet to
    download windows updates and the error reporting function of windows
    also seems to be accessing the internet successfully. (Although, when it
    opens IE to give report - IE is still not working.) This selective
    internet access really has me baffled.

    I've tried running optimization programs, checking for viruses and
    trojans, checking my connection settings, taking unnecessary programs
    out of my startup, and a few WinSock fixes and have not had any luck.

    Any ideas as to what could be my problem and how to fix it would be
    greatly appreciated. I am considering reinstalling windows, but want to
    save that as the very last desperate resort.

    Thanks!

    Above is text which I had to manually copy from my HP laptop. Looks OK
    to me.

    Let me know what you think - thanks!

    can you ping the other computers or access them by their IP?
    can you log into your router using it's IP ?

    are you sure the wireless security is set up correctly on the
    problem computer? (try re-doing it).

  5. Re: Wireless Connection active but no internet

    I can't ping other computers now or access my router. I'm pretty sure my
    wireless security settings are fine. As I've mentioned before, it is
    successfully showing a good strong connection whether I connect it
    wirelessly or wired. It also is able to download windows updates on it's
    own and install them and report errors to Microsoft.

    It has me completely baffled!

    What do you think? Is my XP networking corrupted somehow? Could this be
    a trojan or some kind of malware causing the issue?

    Thanks!

  7. Re: Wireless Connection active but no internet

    I am no expert, someone correct me if I'm wrong.
    Referring to your Ipconfig it seems to me that your DNS Servers info is
    incorrect. I think it should be an address provided by your provider and not
    the address of your Default Gateway.

  8. Re: Wireless Connection active but no internet

    I asked if you could access using IP numbers. what is the error
    message when you enter http://ip#_for your router ?

    the link I provided has a winsock fix application that you can
    download and run after running anti virus scans and malware scans.

  9. Re: Wireless Connection active but no internet

    Hi
    I would start first with the wired connection making sure that it is working
    correctly, and then if still needed deal with the Wireless.
    Follow this process may be you wood find the problematic spot,
