I am running win xp with sp2 on both computers. Have set up a wireless connection. have done a ping test and both computers r communicating. the pc connects to the net ok. the laptop is a strong signal (excellent) but wont find the home page. When you click on I.e. it checks proxy settings ,finds the google home page and then said this page cant be displayed. I am at my witts end. Can you experts help please?
No im only running the Microsoft firewall. I have found if i go into i.e. and click on properties it says Protocol Unknown Type Not available Address res://c:\windows\system 32. URL \shdoclc.dll\dnserror htm#http:click here
Im sure this is the problem but dont know how to clearout the ie properties box so it can reasign the info. Hope this helps
Can you get the Google site up if you click here if so, in Network Connection, right click on the LAN icon and select properties. Under the General tab select Internet Protocol and click Properties, do you have "Obtain an IP address automatically selected".
Or try in IE go to tools, Internet Options, Connections, LAN Settings, click on Use a proxy server
i suspect the laptop has lost your isp settings, call up your config page (if your wifi card uses browser) and check that you are properly logged in, i use d-link with no problems, please advise the brand of your gear
Thanks for that but have a look at his last post timed at 00.40 this morning. He seems to have a Belkin Wireless router now. We also seem to have two threads - one marked resolved and it isn`t know, and this one which has moved on to another problem altogether.
Alltime - Strongly suggest you mark both threads as resolved. Start a new one with your current situation and give us all the info about your current setup. Then we can look at the problem analytically and everyone will know where we are up to.
