My Dell laptop has excellent signal to my wireless router but I can't acess the Internet. The proxy server is unchecked, the detection is set up for automatic. I suspect it has to do with the firewalls so I ve I've set those up to factory default but still no acess. Are there settings that I should check. Maybe the http,https,FTP ports

can you go to start, run, and type ip config.

Then right click and choose mark and select everything with the mouse and ctrl c for copy and paste it here.

Also, go into the router and see if dhcp is turned on.

I get an error message "windows cannot find 'ip'. Make sure you typed the name correctly, and then try again. To search for a file, click the start button, and then click search

can you get an ip through ethernet? If so, try going to start, run, devmgmt.msc and right click your wireless card and uninstall, then reboot with the ethernet plugged in and go back in device manager and right click and choose scan for new hardware and your wireless card should get the newest driver. Maybe that will help, keep us posted.

I don't see anything that says wireless card. Is that the same as network adapters?

I tried that; I was able to scan and the computer installed the wireless however I can no longer connect to my network. I get a message saying it may not be in range.

ok, if you go to control panel and network connections and double click the wireless connection and go to details what does it say? Here is what I am talking about:

look at ipv4 address, does it have a number like mine or is it 169.x.x.x?

Also, why don't you try a hard reset of your router with the small hole in the back and a paper clip. Make sure to back up wireless settings first.

Sorry but I don't see where are the details. I think u may be right in that I should reset the router. Will I have to rebuilt the SSID?

You've got to either redo everything manually or sometimes on the panel that has firmware and reboot and password there is a setting to save everything to a file on your hard drive.

Then you reset and go back to that panel and hit load and load the file and all your settings will be back.
