Hi evrybody
I have 3 Computers(desktop) connected wireless , 1 of them working with vista and the others with XP. There is a problem with 1 of the computers with XP, when I go to Network Connection from Control Panel I see 2 things
1- Wireless Network Connection and the statues is Connected with excellent signal.
2- Local Area Connection it is also connected but with error (A network cable is unplugged).

And the problem is : With this environment The wireless connected with an excellent signal strength to my network of 3 computers via wireless but still one of them will not open up any web pages, always (Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage), also I tried to disable the Local Area Connection but same thing.

Notes : If I connect wired in this computer every thing is ok and I can get to web pages.

This the wireless adapter I use (Aztech 802.11b/g usb 2.0 Adaptor)

Hi marmora. I hope I can help. :)

First, let's gets the facts strightened out to avoid confusion. Please tell me if I'm wrong or if you don't know.
You have 3 computers connected wirelessly to a router. Wirelessly, 2 of them can connect to the Internet/open web pages. One of them can't. If you connect the problem computer to the router (I'm assuming this is where you connected it) using a cable, it can open web pages.

Did you connect the problem computer using a cable to the router or to the modem?

If you connect the problem computer using a cable with the other computers still connected wirelessly, do all 3 have Internet connection?

Do all 3 computers use the same wireless adapter?

Ah ok. So you have a built in modem in your router.
Let's gather more information so we can troubleshoot better.

Please tell me the model of your router.

Please do the following:
1. On the problem computer, go to Start->Run. A box will appear. Type in "cmd" then click OK. A window with black background will appear.
2. In there, type ipconfig /all. Press Enter.
3. Right click on the background and click Mark. Highlight everything that came out and post that in your next reply.
4. Do the same for the working computer. Use the one with Win XP. :)

Please be sure to label which ipconfig output belongs to which computer. Thanks :)

Are the computers in your house? Or are they somewhere else like school or office?
Maybe you don't have the proper proxy settings. In my school for example, I need to configure a proxy setting whenever I connect to the network there. Otherwise, I cant connect to the Internet.

Try flushing out the DNS information from your computers..

Go to command prompt and type "ipconfig /flushdns"

Or your internet options are set to use a proxy.. Try checking them and turning them off
