Hello,

If someone could please help with my wireless internet issue. I got a new router and cannot connect wirelessly to it with this laptop. My wife's laptop works fine, and this laptop works fine with a patch cable, but not wirelessly. I also know the wireless card in this works, as it connects fine in the public library.

When I try connecting, the wireless says it's connected, but with limited/no connectivity, while the strength is excellent. I checked the packets sent/received, and it only received to packets. I tried to repair the connection, but it got stuck when it tried to renew the IP address. I looked at some forums which said to make sure the IP address was set to automatic, which mine is. I also tried disabling the firewall and my virus program (Avast), and it still wouldn't connect.

Any idea what to do?

Thanks!

Open a command prompt, Windows Key + R, type cmd and then type the following without the quotes and paste all the results back here, "ipconfig /all".

I've got it all fixed now. That ipconfig didn't work, but I changed my security type from WPA to WEP and that did the trick. Now you know if someone else asks!

Thanks for the advice.
