You need to enable dhcp on the wireless adapter of your laptop:

Goto network and sharing centre, change adapter settings, right click on wireless adapter, select properties, scroll down to internet protocol version 4, click on properties, select "obtain an ip address automatically" and also select "obtain dns server address automatically". Chain back out. and reboot.

That shows a big improvement - try going back to the adapter properties, select "use the following dns server addresses" and enter the value 192.168.0.1 into the space provided.

Open a command prompt and try the following two commands:

ping yahoo.com

ping 98.138.253.109

and tell us if each is successful

I never used command prompt before, so I don't know if I did it right. I put in ping yahoo.com, then after I put ping 98.138.253.109. Well it didn't change anything.

you should have got replies from each of the ping commands - either successful or unsuccessful. Each of the two ping commands need to be entered separately, pressing enter after each one.

Well that proves your wifi is connecting to the internet and that your DNS server is functioning correctly. What browser are you using? Have you tried more than one?
 


#13
I have tried other ones and nothing. Under network and sharing center says access type: no internet access

You might have to reset your modem. If not sure call the company or IP provider and have them walk you through. Had that problem last week and after entering my info manually, I still had to call and get it reset. I hope that helps. It worked for me.
