GF has a Acer 5920, got it just after start of uni in october. She keeps having problems connecting to the network, It either :
* Connects and will not let you browse the internet or connect to msn or anything.
* Connects with Limited or no Connectivity and will not fix its self.
Ive tried deleting and readding them. Restarting the laptop and so on.
Cant seem to find a way to fix this. its driving her mad and inturn driving me mad .............
Quote from the other forum.....
she turned it on and it was connected, but it wouldnt log into msn or go on the net. In Network Connections area(sorry dont know vista) it said it was connected to the network but not to the net (had a red cross between the network and the internet logos).
I got her to ping around and it wouldnt ping outside the network, i got her to ping an internal IP and it came back blank so we used this IP as a static IP, set it up and still nothing......... Asked her to set it back to "automatic" and as she did everything came alive again...........
Very confused by this............ anyone got a decent diagnosise program that i could put on her puter while its got net and run when net aint working? something she could maybe understand a bit as im 70 miles away..........
edit: flushed, released and renewed, still nothing.......... trying evertything i can think of here
