Hey Guys,

Ive pulled my old pc notebook out and it wont connect to the internet. At first it would connect to the wireless router showing all green bars but with 'limited or no connectivity). I manually entered a static ip and it then was able to connect with excellent connectivity, but the internet wouldnt work when i tried to load a webpage.

Ive been searching the forums and trying to figure it out but im reaching dead ends.

Can someone please help me out!!

Thanks.

Did you enter DNS servers as well as the IP address?

just an update:

i went into the TCP/IP properties and manually entered in the ip, DNS, and default gateway and it got me a 'very good' signal strength, vs a 'limited to none' - but the browser still cant load any web pages....
