I have a Dell Latitude D620 and I was Downloading something at a hotel on a unsecure network and it stop downloading. Now it won't get on the net with IE. It is a download CPU so I don't have email setup. I tire relosding the driver with no luck. I reloaded Windows XP and on it because I couldn't think og anything else. It still won't get back on net. The Wifi will connect to network but it will not get on net.

Any suggestions? It usually works when I reload windows. Thanks for help.

Can you do the following:

Start then run type in cmd hit enter.

In the big black box that comes up type in:

ipconfig /all >> c:\ipconfig.txt

Copy the file to a flash drive and paste the contents in your next post.

Default Gateway . . . . . . . . . : 172.17.1.1

Is that the IP of the router?

So you have access to 2 computers?

Can you verify the default gateway on both?

I think they blocking my mac address on the laptop I am refering to becuase I went to a friend house and it works fine and get on internet. They must of had a script of something on the network that blocked it. I guess I have to change mac address to get back on.

Yeah I am in a hotel, I am sure the night manager wouldn't know how to do it. I think there is a script on the system that limits the downloads. I have been here before so I assume Thanks for the help though. I will let you know if I find any other answers.

Did you try a different browser? Once in awhile the hotspot page doesn't show up. You know about the slide button on the left side of that laptop too, right?

I know about the switch on the side. I fugured it out. It is the system blocking the mac address. I guess I have stayed here so many times I must of hit my max on the script. I got a mac changer from download.com and that fixed it. The error box pops up every few seconds but it does get on the web. It is fixed but is limping a lil bit. I will have to monkey witht eh changer some. thanks for all the help.
