I have a Sony VAIO VGN-FS920 with built in wireless adapter. It worked fine until a month ago. It can still detects all wireless networks and does indicates that it is connected, but I just cannot access internet. Can anyone help me shine a light on this? When I run the VAIO diagnostic it indicates something to effect of Gateway not setup.

Where do I find "ipconfig/all"?

The verbage is the gateway to this computer is empty. Confirm the access point is setup correctly.

Hmm... It is empty, ain't it?

Try Ultimateslacker2's instructions again but type "ipconfig /all" and post results.

Your IP looks like you are the default gateway.

Go to Start /Control Panel /(classic view) network connections. Right click on the wireless connection and choose Properties. Highlight Internet protocol TCP/IP and choose properties. Make sure automatically obtain addres and automatically obtain dns are marked.

What is your setup, do you have a wired router and a seperate wireless access point? If so from the first attachment you need to setup your access point to be on the same IP address range of 192.168.1.xxx. If you have a single wireless/wired router then it looks like you could be hooking up to someone elses network.
