Connected to Wireless router but not to ie

November 21, 2011 at 09:38:50
Specs: Windows XP
My computer seems to show that it is connected to the wireless router but cannot connect to internet explorer. My other computers have no problem connecting so i know that the router is working. The Sony Vaio is a laptop that has never had this problem before. I've tried typing in the ip address and it returns the same window "unable to display page. No websites will work. This seemed to happen when I downloaded Mozilla Firefox recently to download larger files. I performed a reset of ie and it hasn't woeked since then. Can anyone please help?

Seems like there is a DNS issue.

if you got I.E installed try this:

>Tools > nternet Options > Connection > LAN Settings >
check the box saying something "Automatically detect settings"

Also you can go into NETWORK PLACE, select the relevant wireless adapter
right click it and then click REPAIR.

Once done that, just restart Laptop ...
seems like you are getting an address

Hi Bucki - Thanks for your reply. I have tried both of these attempts without success. I tried to ping my ip address from another computer in the house and it came back saying it "timed out". Not sure what to do. . .

the error "timed out" can be caused because many firewalls do block these type of requests to avoid network scanners/hackers etc.

use the command ipconfi /all as described by wandere
and let us knwo about the result
