SOURCE: Wireless router problems

your computer is only connected to the signal coming from the router that's why it's saying connected but it seems that your router is not properly configured to provide internet access since your dns server is the same as your default gaetway. it could be that the your router is not in sync with the modem.
- if it's working before, tyr to power cycle everything by turning all the devices off then turn on the modem first, wait for all the lights on the modem to turn on then power on the router and the computer.

- if the router is for initial setup, kindly provide me you ISP, brand and model of the modem and how you connect the modem to the router and tell me if how you access the internet directly from the modem.

Finally I found the reset button - on this model it was not on the rear panel but on the bottom covered with label and without any sign. Then I was able to reconfigure the system.

You need to setup security on the laptop/access point. Apparently it has been setup in the router.

Are you getting the ip address by DHCP? If everything is working on the router side, open the command prompt and try to ping , for example, www.google.com, if you do not get a response, then you are not getting out to the internet through the modem. Also, try resetting the modem. Some companies modems, such as Comcast, require you to resert the modem by unplugging the modem for 10-15 seconds, then powering it back on. This registers the MAC address for the new device. If this doesn't work, you may need to call the company and tell them what you need to do.

Changing TCP/IP settings Win 7 TCP/IP defines how your computer communicates with other computers.
To make it easier to manage TCP/IP settings, we recommend using automated Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP). DHCP automatically assigns Internet Protocol (IP) addresses to the computers on your network, if your network supports it. If you use DHCP, then you don't have to change your TCP/IP settings if you move your computer to another location, and DHCP doesn't require you to manually configure TCP/IP settings, such as Domain Name System (DNS) and Windows Internet Name Service (WINS). To enable DHCP or change other TCP/IP settings, follow these steps:
  1. Open Network Connections by clicking the Start button 4f6cbd09-148c-4dd8-b1f2-48f232a2fd33_818.jpg, and then clicking Control Panel. In the search box, typeadapter, and then, under Network and Sharing Center, click View network connections.
  2. Right-click the connection that you want to change, and then click Properties. 18abb370-ac1e-4b6b-b663-e028a75bf05b_48.jpg If you're prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.
  3. Click the Networking tab. Under This connection uses the following items, click either Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IPv4) or Internet Protocol Version 6 (TCP/IPv6), and then click Properties. 25e7e385-9327-4f7d-aab0-afa5aaf952ba_49.jpgThe Network Connection Properties dialog box
  4. To specify IPv4 IP address settings, do one of the following:
    • To get IP settings automatically using DHCP, click Obtain an IP address automatically, and then click OK.
    • To specify an IP address, click Use the following IP address, and then, in the IP address, Subnet mask, and Default gateway boxes, type the IP address settings.
  5. To specify IPv6 IP address settings, do one of the following:
    • To get IP settings automatically using DHCP, click Obtain an IPv6 address automatically, and then click OK.
    • To specify an IP address, click Use the following IPv6 address, and then, in the IPv6 address, Subnet prefix length, and Default gateway boxes, type the IP address settings.
  6. To specify DNS server address settings, do one of the following:
    • To get a DNS server address automatically using DHCP, click Obtain DNS server address automatically, and then click OK.
    • To specify a DNS server address, click Use the following DNS server addresses, and then, in the Preferred DNS server and Alternate DNS server boxes, type the addresses of the primary and secondary DNS servers.

    Keep losing connectivity


    This is usually caused by the setup of the TCP/IP properties, most people do not have static IP addressing, so open the Wireless Connetion Properties window, find the Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) and select it then select the properties button to bring up another window showing the properties for this, select the "Obtain an IP address automatically" and "Obtain DNS server address automatically", OK out of these dialogs and that should take care of it.

    I full signal strength from my rounter but wont connect


    Hi there,

    This could be due to wrong DNS settings or IP Address. You will need to go in to your network connections by doing the following: "Start, "Control Panel", "Network Connections" and then right click on your wireless connection and select "Properties", then when the new window opens scroll down to something called Internet Protocol (TCP/IP)
    58eb063.jpg
    Open this by clicking "Properties" then adjust the settings as follows:
    64ff617.jpg
    - Obtain an IP address automatically
    - Obtain DNS server address automatically

    Then configure your router to assign the IP Address and DNS Settings automatically and your internet should work.
