I need help!!! I have my modem and router connected -- wireless -- for each of my 2 laptops. Both reflect "Excellent" strength in connections, however when I click on internet explorer....it states that I can't get on. It's driving me crazy!!!! One of the laptops connects fine, the other won't connect at all. Please help :thumbsup:

Well we do have another topic about this same problem... Do you have all the correct drivers? Do you have all the correct services enabled? Are you getting a valid network ip when you connect to the router? Do you have it set to assign automatically? Are you getting DNS ips? What kind of waves are you using..i.e. 802.11b/g/n?

Are you using a firewall?
Have you checked TCP/IP properties of the network adapter. It should include DNS servers and DHCP server which likely is your router. DNS servers might be your ISP's or the router.

If you post ipconfig /all information it might be helpful to see what's going on.
Start, Run, type cmd and press Enter
On the cmd windows type:
ipconfig /all
copy what is listed and paste here.

In case you don't know how to copy out of the cmd window: on the title bar, right click, the Edit, then Select all, then right click the title bar again, Edit and Copy.

What exactly does it say when you see "DNS error and something about http and https" - it sounds like it can't get out to the DNS server to lookup an address, and so it can't do the normal web transmissions using http, https protocols.

First off, on the connection click status, go to the second tab, click on details and make sure that there are ips set in the DNS 1: and DNS 2: areas (assuming windows xp btw)... if not then go back to the first tab, click properties, in the little box, go down to tcp/ip protocols, click properties, make sure everything (including the advanced section) is set to automatic, then re-connect... If that doesn't fix the problem, then log into your router (192.168.1.1) (this all is also assuming you do have a proper network ip address), and make sure the DNS ips are set for the router... Also if you want you can use other DNS servers outside what is being supported by your ISP, you can find a good DNS and use their ip in your tcp/ip protocols settings... Also you can just put your routers ip in there as well (192.68.1.1)
