Connected PC but no internet

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
OK, basically I'm at my in laws. One laptop works and connects fine to the router and internet. The other is able to get a dynamic address from the router on both the wireless and cable connection and pings the router fine. The problem is that the 2nd PC is not able to connect to the router itself or to the internet.

It worked fine before and no setting have been changed on the router. I've tried both lines, enable, disable, disabling the firewall, repair, and one or two other things and I'm running out of ideas. Any help is appreciated.

Edit: I can even ping the non-working PC from the working one.

Edit: For the record I can't ping the working PC from the non-working one.

Is it possible that NAT isn't configured, allowing only a single PC to use the inside global IP from the service provider at a time? If you shut the other machine down and reboot the router can you reach the internet?

I don't think that is the case because while I was working on this they managed to hook my PS3 up and they are now watching Netflix so I'm guessing its something local to the laptop.

I'm confused. You say it can ping the router successfully, however can't connect? By connect do you mean access the routers http configuration page?

Yes. I type in 192.168.1.1 and I get nothing. Works fine on the other laptop.

Are you sure that the router uses that address?

Type ipconfig into the command line and see what it says for default gateway. It may be using 192.168.1.1 but could use something different, just want to make sure.

Yeah it is right. I'm logged in to the router config page on this PC right now.

Delete any saved network profiles from Windows and then try reconnecting to the network.

If that doesn't work, try resetting the TCPIP stack and WINSOCK catalog.

Windows XP: CMD prompt, run commands "netsh i i r r" & "netsh w r c"

Windows Vista/7: Run CMD prompt as Administrator "netsh i i r r" & "netsh winsock reset catalog"

Reboot PC, try reconnecting to wireless network.

Make sure that the Wireless network connection also is set to Automatically Obtain IP/DNS address, rather than set to manually specify.

Also, check and make sure that "Use a proxy server" has not mistakenly been enabled in Internet Options.
