I have a PC and connected to my laptop with a TP-Link router. I have excellent internet link with my PC however after connecting my laptop through this router, although I can see at the bootom right corner of my laptop the strong signals from the router yet I cannot access the internet. When I try to access the internet using IE or Foxfire, I get a message that the server cannot be found. My moden is Sagem provided by Talktalk. Any suggestions as to why I cannot access the internet despite the strong signals recieved by muy laptop? Regards
While in the " advanced " tab , and having ticked " allow other users to connect etc. " also tick " allow other network users to control etc. " then go to settings and select which services you wish the connections to use , try ticking ...DHCP 67+68 , SMTP and POP3 , and anything else you might wish to use .
I have done as advised above , still no success. More details guys and I very much appreciate all your efforts. In the router traffic statisics the no of bytes sent = 19935 but recd 0 at the time of writing this update. I tried to repair the Wirless networkand the reponse is - Windows couldnot finish repairing the problem...Disabling the wireless network adaptor. Any further assitance is highly appreciated. Ahoy
Sorry , didn't realise it was a wireless network router , in that case turn Internet Connection Sharing off , it won't help at all . What wireless networking security have you set , WEP or WPA ? Are you seeing the available connections for your laptop by double clicking on the icon on the task bar , if so , and you select your own network , are you entering the correct security code ? Does it stay stuck on " acquiring network address " What happens if you go to ...run , type cmd in the run bar , then ipconfig/all ...what appears on the screen ?
