I have a desktop computer connected to a router and modem and a laptop that connects wirelessly to this network. I have another desktop that I want to put in the living room and connect wirelessly. Right now it is in the same room as my other computers. I have installed a dlink wireless adapter, installed the newest available driver from dlink web site. Device manager shows everything to be fine, driver installed and adapter is working properly. But cannot connect to the internet and load web pages. Below I have included information from ipconfig for all three computers hoping this will help.

This one is for my desktop computer that is directly connected to the router and modem:

Can anyone tell from this why I cannot connect and to the internet? On that last one I entered the numbers for the default gateway myself because there were no numbers there when I opened the file and those numbers are the same that I saw on the other desktop and the laptop for the default gateway.

1. Have you tried different browsers?
2. Open firewall and make sure networks are set for "trusted" and not "public".
Or even test by disabling firewalls (windows and others) to see if it will connect.
3. Wireless, and so your network security key may need correction.
4. Make sure your IP & DNS are set for "Auto": Click: Internet Options, Lan Settings = "auto". Click" Adapter settings, right click & click properties, click tcp/ip, click obtain iP "automatically", click obtain DNS "automatically". Win7 had two tcp/ip drivers, so do both.
5. Call your internet provider support number and they will walk you through these same steps and others.
