Hi guys

i just bought a new computer and am unable to connect to the internet through the WLAN
originally i had probs with the network card but we got a new one and it can see the network fine and connect to it but shows local only.

i moved the computer and hardwired it to the router and it can connect fine so it seems to me as it is some setting with the wireless or vista 64bit.

there is another computer in the house running vista 32 bit that has no problems at all connecting to the network

as well as another laptop that was sitting in the room where this computer used to be that connects fine as well.

the router is an alcatel speedtouch pro
and the access point is a belkin
and the network card is linksys

the wireless network card was able to connect to the WLAN at the shop that we bought it at after they installed the 64 bit drivers

i am reasembly novice when it comes to networking.
however i do know my way around a computer well

what it does is connect to the network and identifies for a while and then seems to connect fine but only allows local access

please can someone give me some things to try to get this working

any help is greatly appreciated.
thankyou

(sorry if i was a bit all over the place)

this is the network connection details

Hey Dguest and welcome to GTG :)

When you try to connect via wireless, can you please do the following:
  • Select Start
  • In the Start Search field type cmd -- right-click on the cmd program and choose Run as administrator
  • In the new command prompt window, type ipconfig /all > C:\ipconfig.txt
  • Navigate to your C: drive and open the text file ipconfig.txt -- please copy/paste the contents of this file into your next response.
To be honest, I would say the most likely reason for you not being able to connect is a misconfiguration with your wireless settings.

Do you have Encryption/security enabled on your router (i.e. WEP, WPA, WPA2, etc)? If so, please try disabling it and then attempt to connect with your new machine via wireless; can you?

Also, ensure you do not have MAC Address Filtering enabled on your router, as this could be blocking your machine. MAC Address Filtering offers negligible protection, and can often cause a lot of headaches.

To check both of these things, you will need to log into your router's web interface. Do you know how to do this? If not, please post the exact make and model of your Belkin router.

Thanks,
- Dan

there is no encryption on the router and it does have mac address filtering but the mac address has been allowed

mac addresses have not been a problem on any of the other computers that connect to this AP

mac addresses have not been a problem on any of the other computers that connect to this AP

Unfortunately, MAC filtering offers negligible protection; you really should have some form of encryption setup on your wireless network. However, for troubleshooting purposes, can you please disable both MAC filtering and encryption; once we get all of your machines connecting, we can worry about protection.

Your ipconfig indicates that your wireless isn't even communicating with your router. Please do the following:
  • Select Start
  • In the Start Search field type ncpa.cpl and press the Enter key on your keyboard.
  • In the new window, right-click on your Wireless Connection (you may also do this on your Local Area connection afterwards, if you like) and select Properties.
  • In the This connection uses the following items section, remove the tick beside (i.e. disable) Internet Protocol Version 6 (TCP/IPv6) and then press OK.
Please follow the instructions in this MS Article to disable the DHCP BROADCAST flag. Once you have completed the above two, try connecting to your Wireless network again; can you? If not, please post the exact steps you take to try to connect.

Finally, please post the specifics of your wireless drivers by doing the following:
  • Select Start
  • In the Start Search field type cmd -- right-click on the cmd program and choose Run as administrator
  • In the new command prompt window, type netsh wlan show all > C:\results.txt
  • Navigate to your C: drive and open the text file results.txt -- please copy/paste the contents of this file into your next response.
Thanks,

ok so i went and disabled the mac address filtering
and followed the rest of the steps

well currently the exact steps i take to connect are nothing because it auto tries to connect on startup

but when i do all i have to do is right click on the networking icon in the tray and select connect to a network.
then i double click on WLAN.
it disconnects first and then i do it again to connect.

Strange; your adapter seems to think it has a connection. Can you please do the following:
  • Select Start
  • In the Start Search field type cmd -- right-click on the cmd program and choose Run as administrator
  • In the new command prompt window, please type the following commands (*Note: each ping will take approximately 10 seconds to complete; wait for the command prompt to return before you type the next one. Also, the single '>' and double '>>' are intentional; please type the commands exactly as they appear):
    • ipconfig /all > C:\results.txt
    • ping localhost >> C:\results.txt
    • ping google.com >> C:\results.txt
    • ping 209.85.171.100 >> C:\results.txt
  • Once the above commands have completed, navigate to your C: drive and open the text file results.txt -- please copy/paste the contents of this file into your next response.
Also, what is the name (SSID) of the network you are trying to connect to?

One thing that leaps out at me -- can you please make sure that you have SSID broadcasting enabled on your router.

Thanks,
- Dan

The SSID is WLAN of the network we are trying to connect to.

i believe SSID broadcasting is on but i couldnt find a setting somewhere on the router at all for it so i cant say for sure but that fact that i can see the name of the connection come up would say to me that it is on

In this MS Article, please perform the steps listed in Part 1: Disable IEEE 802.1X Authentication. Once you have done that, please do the following:
  • Select Start
  • Type cmd in the Start Search field
  • Right-click on the cmd program and select Run as administrator
  • In the new command prompt window, type netsh int ip reset reset.log
  • Once the above command completes, type netsh winsock reset catalog
  • Restart your computer.
Once your computer reboots:
  • Select Start
  • In the Start Search field type network and then select Network and Sharing Center
  • In the left-hand pane, select Manage Wireless Networks
  • You'll now see a list of Wireless Networks -- select the network that you're experiencing issues with and then press the Remove button.
  • Restart your computer.
Once your computer boots back up, scan for Available Wireless Networks, select your router and attempt to connect.
*NOTE: if you have security setup, you will need to enter your WEP/WPA encryption key/passphrase.

If, after doing these steps, you still can't connect via wireless, then I'm going to need you to enable tracing.
  • Select Start
  • In the Start Search field type cmd -- right-click on the cmd program and choose Run as administrator
  • In the new command prompt window, type netsh wlan set tra persistent
  • Restart your computer and then attempt to connect to your wireless; once it fails, please navigate to the following directory: %WINDIR%\tracing\wireless where %WINDIR% is the directory that you installed Windows (i.e. C:\Windows -- although you can manually enter %WINDIR%\tracing\wireless into your explorer's address bar).
  • In this folder, you should see three files: OneX, Wlan and Msmsec. Please Attach these three files to your next response, as they are quite lengthy; do not simply post them.
  • Once you have attached these files, repeat steps 1 and 2, and in the Command prompt window, type netsh wlan set tra no
Thanks,
