Preferred Solution: Bsnl wifi not connecting to internet

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I have purchased one lumia 535 recently and desperately trying to use the wifi connection to connect to internet. My phone connects to my bsnl modem typeII very easily. But after that how can I connect to my broadband connection by providing my user id and password? Please help.

Answer:Lumia 535 connects to my bsnl modem through wifi. Now how to connect to broadband from it?

Your phone does not need your broadband username and password, they are only used by your modem to connect to your isp as without these it won't be able to authenticate. Meaning simply it woudn't be able to connect to the internet at all.
From your post it sounds like your phone already connects via WiFi.
So therefore you don't need to anything else just open you internet explorer and surf or use the search button. Alternatively you can download the many browsers from the store such as UC Browser, Opera Mini (Beta) etc (I am presuming you have already signed into your Microsoft Account?).

I use to have a d-link router. It burnt up so I bought a Netgear. It was simple to install. All my computer, IPad etc connected to the internet, but my lap top that has vista will not. It found the wifi and conneced to it, but when I go to log on the internet it tell me that there is NO network and will not connect. So how do I get it to connect.

Answer:WiFi not connecting to internet

If it says that it's connected, then it probably already is. There may be something wrong with your laptop. Have you tried connecting your vista laptop to the router using a cable? Have you tried pinging websites?

Then after one night, as i tried to connect to my internet via wifi, windows suddenly changed my wifi network name from "c8daed" to "c8daed 2" and loses internet connection. I tried the reconnecting thing and deleting and scanning again and managed to bring back the "c8daed"(without the #2) and regain my internet connection. but after a few seconds, my PC started to crash and gave me the legendary BSOD. Please help me for this really bugs me alot. thanks! By the way i have attached the file that the forum requires me to give information about the BSOD

I run with Windows XP Home SP2.This is on a loptop with a wireless card and connect to the internet via a 3Com Wireless Router.The router?s security is MAC address filtering and WPA-PSK encryption. Its WPA mode is WPAWPA2 Mixed Mode. The encryption technique is AUTO for WPA,AES for WPA2.I have a separate desktop computer and have just purchased a ZyDAS usb wifi dongle. I have loaded the software drivers which came with the dongle.When I put the dongle into a USB port and click on the ZyDAS utility, the dongle is seeing my router and next doors.I have established the MAC address of the desktop computer. I know the SSID of the laptop??router. I have my pre-shared key encryption code.But where do I go from here to enable the desktop to connect to the internet and thereafter talk to the laptop. I appreciate that this is probably two steps. (1) talk to the router and (2) a local area network to get the two computers to talk to each other.Your advice on the way forward would be appreciated. If you need any further information please just ask.Barmoor

Answer:Connecting second computer to internet via wifi

First you need to put the SSID and Key into the Wireless Computer Software, You should have loaded Software for the Dongle. That loads a icon in the system tray near clock. Double click on it to bring up the program and enter the above. When you have got it to connect come back for the other help you asked for

I use Windows XP on both my desktop and my laptop. I recently installed a DSL broadband internet connection on my desktop and have connected my desktop to the DSL modem via a Linksys Wireless Router. The internet on the desktop works perfectly.

I am having trouble accessing the internet after my laptop logs into the wireless network that I have set up (it shows the signal strength as excellent).

I am able to ping the router but not the internet. I wonder if there are any settings in Windows that I need to switch on to be able to access the internet. I will be grateful for any help on this matter.

Thank you!

I recently bought a new laptop with built-in WiFi. This laptop is used about 99% of the time at a remote location so the only available internet connection (without going to satellite) is through dial-up. Is there some kind of WiFi product I can connect to the standard phone line, then use the laptop's built-in WiFi to connect to the internet. I realize I would be limited to the extremely slow dial-up connection but at least I wouldn't have to connect the phone wire to the laptop. Thanks for any suggestions.

PLEASE HELP! I'm at my wits end with all this...

I have an HP Pavillion dv6 w/ith Windows 7. My internet was working this morning, my laptop died, recharged it and turned it back on, and internet was not working anymore. WiFi and connection through Ethernet was not working. It's not my router/modem since I can connect to the internet (WiFi and Ethernet) with my phone and another laptop. I did a power cycle anyways, but nothing. I also tried connecting to another WiFi that is within my range and same result (I can usually connect to it as my back up and can with other devices as well). I am getting a "Limited access" with everything I do.

I ran troubleshooter and it said that that "There might be a problem with the driver for the Wireless Network Connection adapter." My network adapters are Ralink RT5390 802.11b/g WiFi adapter and Realtek PCIe GBE Family Controller for Local Area Connection. Neither of them have a yellow triangle with a "!". I even updated these drivers with the latest versions from the manufacturer websites. Nothing. Restarted my computer. Nothing. Enabled/disabled the connection. Nothing. I then uninstalled each driver, restarted my computer, let them re-install, and still nothing.

In Wireless Network Connection Properties, "Internet Protocol Version 6 (TCP/IPv6)" and "Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IPv4)" are both checked and they both are set to "Obtain an IP address automatically"... Read more

I am using a D-link DSL-G604T wireless ADSL2+ modem/router for my internet connection, and just a cheap network adapter i bought from ebay. I have installed the network adapter and it is detecting a connection with the router, the only problem i have is that i cant figure out how to connect to the internet.
Before i got the network adapter and the router/modem, i was using a D-link DSL-502T to connect to the internet which worked fine.
My question is; how do i connect to the net threw my wireless router/modem?

Also, one other question, when i try connectiong threw ethernet my comp locks up and i have to switch it of at the switch, this happens every time i plug the ethernet lead in, anyone know why?

Answer:Connecting to the internet threw wifi

Most modem/router combos work out of the box. I would recommend resetting the device (check with the manual to see how/google) and starting over. It if is locking up your computer it could be a number of things; probably an issue with your computer. Also, can you get it to work with any other computers?

Hey guys, need your help. I own a Compaq Presario CQ62-230E1. Am using windows 7 4bit .Last September the motherboard crashed and I had to take it to be replaced. When it was repaired, I took went and collected it. At first I noticed that when I connected the Ethernet cable to the laptop there was no internet connection. Whenever I ran diagnostics it told me same issue, local are network doesn?t have a valid ip configuration. I tried connecting via wifi and it was working properly the only problem was that the modem had to be close to the laptop, like literally a few centimeters away. Recently as of one week ago it totally stopped picking up wifi from the ISP modem no matter how close it is returning the error wireless access; problem with adapter. The irony is when I try to connect the laptop to the internet via my phone whether it is tethering or hotspot it connects to the internet. My friend who is a computer expert thought it was a software issue but we downloaded and installed all the necessary drivers. We even went as far as to format local disk C just to be sure and ensure all the junk is chucked. He guesses that the problem is hardware suggesting that when they replaced the motherboard they must have interfered with the wifi /Ethernet boad. Any help will be highly appreciated. Alvaro

Answer:My compaq Presario is not connecting to the internet via wifi or LAN

Hello Alvaro . welcome to the Forums, I am of mind to agree with your friend. They have from what it appears installed a faulty card or damaged it in the process of repairing the motherboard.

Hi. I'm using a Gateway NV54 laptop and the wifi isn't connecting to the home network or internet. The wifi worked before the install, but not after. I have another laptop and the wifi works fine for it.

Recently did a clean install of Windows 7 Home Premium SP1, 64-bit. Installed all drivers. Current wireless driver is Intel Wireless LAN Driver (since the laptop uses Intel Pentium processor).

When I click my home network in the list of connections it asks for the security key. I put in the key and immediately it says "windows was unable to connect to this network." Tried this multiple times. I can connect with ethernet but not wireless.

Tried pressing Xfinity router wireless button to pick up the laptop but it didn't work. Tried logging into Xfinity router from the other computer and manually put the laptop's computer name and mac address into router, restarted router, still can't connect.

i am having a problem with a new netgear AC1200 WIFI router Model R6120 and was hoping to get some help. I had a Linksys cicso WRT110 router that went bad last week. I went to Wal-Mart and bought the netgear AC1200. I hooked it up to a dell e6400 latitude running windows 7 pro and I cannot get it to connect to the internet using a DSL modem.

I can see the router when you click on the icon in the lower right corner that displays the wireless connections. I opened the network and sharing center and selected the "set up a new connection or network" and set up a home connection. I am not sure if I did this correctly.
when you open a IE browser to connect to the internet, the netgear routerlogin screen displays. it states that I did not have a connection to the internet and the netgear genie asked if it should create the connection. I responded yes and the genie started doing the work and then displayed something about a PPPoE connection and asked for my signon and password. I did not remember so I called the DSL provider and they gave it to me. I enter these credentials and the genie responded that the credentials were invalid. I contacted the netgear support and that guy was not much help. he tried some things and when it came to entering the username and password for the PPPoE connection and we received the invalid message, he said that it might be a bad router an that I should take it back and get a new one.

I have configured other devices with static IPs. Gateway and subnet mask is also correct. I am also using different IPs of the same subnet.

I experience the following problem with a new one week old Lenovo X220 built with Intel Advanced-N 6205: After 3-5 hours it disconnects from a wifi router and would not be able to connect to it until I reboot the router. It happened the first time on Friday, I was connected to our Verizon FIOS router and after 5 hours I lost connection and won't be able to connect for 2 hours trying every possible thing until I rebooted  the router, what I didn't have to do with countless number of other laptops/cell phones. Now X220 loses wifi connection every 3 hours and won't be able to connect until the router is restarted. All other devices in a house work perfectly fine, my roommates probably already hate me for rebooting the router. Router: Actiontec M1424WR (Verizon FIOS) Other devices which were and still are able maintain connections with this router for many hours w/o similar problem:- my old Dell Latitude E6400- my Samsung Captivate cell phoneand bunch of other HP laptops, macbooks etc. What I tried and what did not help:- rebooting X220- turning X20 off/on- installing the latest drivers for Intel 6205 card for the Intel website- installing/uninstalling Intel Wifi tools and Access Connections- restoring from a backup (not a complete factory setting restore)- setting DNS/IPs manually for IPv4 and turning off IPv6 I tried to collect some logging with netsh tracing and it only tells that the driver disconnects during acquisition.Some clue I dis...

Answer:Wifi issue with X220 (intel wifi card); It stops connecting to a router after 3 hours

When it is reproducible in Win 7, went to Ubuntu Live CD and everything works there.So the problem is either inside:- router- Win 7 Intel 6205 drivers including shipped and the latest one  I don't think it is that low level though as I thought, as in Win 7 it tries to reconnect each time disconnecting during "Identifying Network" stage, and setting IP, gateway and DNS manually do not help.  UPDATE: I was able to update Verizon FIOS router to the latest firmware and switched it from WEP to WPA just in case.

Hello! My Windows 10 installation can't auto-connect to wifi after turning on, If it does, it says "No Internet" every time. Is there a way to fix this?


Answer:"No Internet" When auto-connecting to WiFi Windows 10

1. Is your Wifi enabled?
See the Action Centre, (e.g. windows key + a).
Make sure the Airplane Mode tile is dull (off) and the Wifi tile is on (bright) and says 'available'.

2. Can any other device connect to the same router?

3. Note Wifi Sense can cause people problems:
4. Have you tried the troubleshooter? Rt click tray icon, troubleshoot.

5. Please post a screenshot like this:

(Note: I've recently done an in-place upgrade repair install, and this loses the Wifi key, so needs setting up again- which is why it's shown disconnected)

caf connected to the caf wifi and also using the Internet.

or turn off and then turn back on,
or remove the power plug,

Hi Friends!
Please help.
I am having this strange problem since 15 days now.
Let me explain you in detail,

I have XP PC. It was working fine. Then I had some viruses etc so I formatted it and installed the XP back again.

Now, when I connect to the internet the PC hangs/stops responding at all.
(not until i connect the LAN cable, but when I click the connection logo to start connection, it hangs)

The strange thing is, if i dont start internet connection the PC works fine.
If i connect to internet using same router and cable in my laptop it also works fine.
But when i connect the router to my Old PC it hangs.

I have the router changed by the service provider,
I formatted the PC twice and installed new drivers.
I tried to update all the drivers.
Nothing helps.

When I uninstall and reinstall the LAN driver it sometimes connects for 20-30 minutes but then again starts hanging. then it hangs just on connection start.

Please help me. I am very confused. I showed it to some local computer service center, they tried the same thing - formatting and reinstalling XP from their CD but didnt work.

Anybody has any idea what this problem is?

Thank You.

 I am using EVDO (bsnl wireless connection)  and my Operating system is windows Xp with service pack 2,the problem i am facing is my internet connection breaks every 10minutes.but the device is working properly in another systems with out any problem for hours

Answer:EVDO (bsnl wirless connection) break ups frequently in xp

Hi,For your question, I'll assume you are using the EVDO USB modem.Open the software provided with the modem. The one which has a red coloured icon in the notification area - if you are connected.Double click on that icon. Or you can always open it from Start>All Programmes.Go to Settings>Options>Standby/Hibernate.Click the radio button "Prevent Standby/Hibernate". By default, standby/hibernate is enabled.I guess it solves your problem. If not, contact customer care.If your downloads break in between, I'd suggest you use a download manager. Also, don't use Internet Explorer. Its very slow & the least secure Internet Browser.I'd recommend you use Google Chrome, its the fastest (can only be installed live, connected), or Mozilla Firefox, or Opera.Use Internet Explorer only for those websites which are not compatible & won't open properly with the above mentioned browsers.

Not only am I a WiFi newbie, I'm also a Windows 7 newbie as well. I learned to use computers on Mac/Apple computers. This just adds to my dilemma and confusion.

OK, here's where I'm at right now.

I have an HP laptop (windows 7 x 64 bit) that I've been trying to get to connect to several local WiFi hotspots. I've only been successful at connecting one time. This was at a local BestBuy store and the internet speed was next to non-existent. The sales person stated it was most likely because alot of their in-store demo-products were also connected to the same WiFi and it created a drag on the internet speed.

In an effort to connect to other free WiFi hotspots in my vicinity I built a "Long Range WiFi Antenna." It works like gangbusters regardless of which direction I aim it. And many of the hotspots I'm able to pick up are nationally known Free-WiFi-Hotspots.

The problem is that no matter how strong of a signal I'm receiving, I can't connect to the internet via any of these hotspots. I'll get a message on my laptop telling me that it can't connect to the chosen hotspot.

There has to be something that I'm missing here. My Mac computers will work but, I can't figure out what I'm doing wrong with my windows based laptop.

Answer:Help connecting to wifi

Hey Ryan. Is this a laptop or desktop. If it's a desktop, it likely doesn't have a wireless adapter that will allow connection to you wireless network. If it's a laptop, right click on My Computer,Properties,select Device Manager tab, then look for Network Adapters and click once on the + and see if you see any wireless adapter listed and if it is enabled. You can enable/disable a wireless adapter by right clicking and toggling between enable/disable. In either case, it probably needs quite a bit of work to get it up to date, and assuming everything else seems ok, I myself would start from scratch and reformat the drive and reinstall XP (assuming you have an XP disk for it) since any maintenance programs are just as old. If you're not sure about this, tell us the make and model number of this pc.

I have two wifi APs (let's say AP-1 and AP-2) and I sometimes have to switch from one to the other. The AP-1 is my main AP so it is always set with "Connect Automatically" for boot up. But, a lot of the time it does not connect to either AP on boot.

When I need to use AP-2, I select AP-1 and click "Disconnect."

I select AP-2 and Click "Connect" leaving "Connect Automatically" un-checked.

After using AP-2, I again select it and click "Disconnect."

Then select AP-1 and make sure the "Connect automatically" is checked, then Connect.

At the next reboot, about 40% of the times it connects to AP-1 but the rest of the time it connects to neither even though "Connect Automatically" is still checked..

Anyone have some thoughts on how to force this so that it always connects to AP-1 on booting up?

Well, you or somebody else at your house is going to have to supply a bit more information about the WiFi set-up being used.

I'd be very grateful for some help please.
I have a Netgear WiFi router which was set up on my desktop PC which I'm not currently using. I am using a laptop and my brother is using his PC. I've just installed the trial version of "Who is on my WiFi" because I'm having a few niggles. e.g. my laptop won't connect eventhough I'm almost sitting on top of the WiFi box (not a problem I have elsewhere with the laptop so I'm assuming it's ok). Speed when connected has also deteriorated recently. Also today there was a message on my laptop about another computer using the same I.P. address - which I've never seen before.
A scan using "Who is on my WiFi" is showing three connections. I can identify my laptop and my brother's PC but I don't know what the third one is.
Would this be the Netgear box itself or do I have someone else using my service.
If the answer is that I do have someone else using my service how do I stop them?
Many thanks

Answer:WiFi and who's connecting to it

Change your routers password - I presume you have it password protected? That will stop anyone else connecting to it.

Hi everyone

Newbie so please be gentle I hope this is in the correct forum, please advise if not.

I am running Windows XP SP2 on a Packard Bell DC5100 MiniTower and have recently purchased a USB Wifi Dongle to use with my Sky Broadband router (which is located in another room unfortunately).

When I plug the USB Device in, the icon in the system tray (bottom right hand corner of the screen) says that I am connected and have an excellent connection (as it would look on a laptop for instance when connected). However, when I then try and launch internet explorer I get the usual "this page cannot be found" screen and no amount of troubleshooting seems to work.

Over the years I have had several modems/devices installed and I fear I may have wiped some or all of the internet settngs when removing these previously. The device works, I think its just that my PC (or indeed I) cannot work out how to find/use it to connect to the internet.

I apologise for the slightly sketchy details but I am doing this at work and from memory. Is there a way I can reinstall all my windows modem drivers for example (or get to a default state) without doing a system wipe? Or would it just be a case of having to find some specific drivers?

The issue seems to be a generic one (i.e. not related to the brand of USB device) hence why I haven't included details. However, if anyone could shed any light on this it would be greatly appreciated.

why do you say this

It maybe a firewall blocking - or wireless security issue but lets start here
would you do the following

{ipconfig /all}
If you cannot access the internet with this PC, then you will need to paste the results into something like notepad and then copy onto a machine that can access the internet and post results here
We would like to see the results from ipconfig /all post back the results here

After re-installing Win 8.1 the WiFi must be switched on after every shut down.
I have tried almost everything, without success.
I am also wary of registry cleaners, had to many funny things after using it in the past.
Any thoughts would be welcome.

Hi. I have an Inspiron 5348 and was wondering if I could connect it to wifi instead of using an ethernet cable as I was thinking of moving some furniture around.
When I go into network settings I see a Dell Wireless 1707 option. I enabled that but can't connect. Just keeps saying "identifying" but doesn't do anyhting. I unplugged my ethernet cable at that time before enabling the Dell wifi. My router is a Netgear router if that matters to how it connects.
So I'm not sure if it can be done and if so does it connect with my netgear router or do I need other pieces of hardware?

Answer:Connecting desktop to wifi?

The wireless network card was an option at point of sale. You can click the link below to download the drivers for the card to see if there is one installed and needs the drivers.

I need some help here. . .

Basic Info:

Laptop: Toshiba Satellite A20, WIFI, Win XP, 2.53GHz AMD processor, 480MB RAM
Modem/Router: 2Wire 2700HG-B

I just got DSL (after years of Dial-up patience). I got the modem/wireless router combination. The two are in one. The modem is a 2Wire 2700HG-B. I believe that I have the modem/router set up properly. It is receiving DSL just fine and the LAN-based connection with my laptop works wonderfully.

The problem, I believe, is with my laptop. When I look at the available wireless connections, the network provided through my router shows up. It is called "2WIRE665" and the signal is 5 bars (excellent). However, I am unable to connect to it. It says in the "Wireless Network Connection" box that for this network, the laptop is set up to connect automatically. However, it is not connecting.

When I go to the command prompt and type in IPCONFIG /ALL, I get the following:

Hi guys,
I have my friend's HP ProBook 4530s running W7Pro which he was having probs with cuz didn't have an antivirus running, so I installed ZoneAlarm, and found some issues that were taken care off, but after running its own HP Update software it said that needed to update the Atheros drivers, it did, but after that no more wireless since, only LAN.
Have tried to rollback and reinstall with no luck, might it be some hidden software or virus jamming it, etc... prompt help is much needed since laptop needed for work, thanks! ;-}#

Answer:Probs connecting to WiFi

Is your Windows 7 32bit or 64bit. Right click the wireless adapter in Device Manager. Select Properties and under the Details tab select Hardware IDs. Copy the first line into your next post. I think this is a Atheros 5007 but I want to confirm it.

I'm using win8 release preview. It shows available WiFi networks to me but when i try to connect it shows cannot connect.
I have tried reinstalling WiFi drivers in win 7 compatibility mode, after this step it connects to network for 2 min or so and then disconnects and doesn't allow me to connect again. This happens every time I reinstall my drivers.
what should I do? please help


Answer:wifi network available but not connecting....

Bumping to say that I bought Windows 8 and it created this problem for me, where the release preview did not. Strange.

I can see my wireless network but not connect. I ran through all of the built in diagnostic tools to no avail. Device Manager said my drivers were up to date. My other devices can connect to wifi fine so I know the problem isn't with my router. Please help!

Hello y'all,
I have the Linksys WRT54G, vers.6 encoded with the most recent firmware update by Linksys. Since that update, I have had some inconsistency keeping online with my all the computers in my home network. Is this caused by my habit of having hardwired desktops (2 of them) on all the time while simultaneously using my WiFi connection for my laptop? Should one or more items be shut down? The update was originally made as a result of my rather weak WiFi connection (it didn't help that).
Thank you.

Answer:Connecting with WiFi and Hardwire

You should be able to freely use the wired and wireless connections on a wireless broadband router. If that causes problems, something is broken.

With the firmware update, did you reset to factory defaults and reconfigure? If not, try that first.

If you did reset to defaults and reconfigure, contact Linksys and find the download for the older firmware and see if that fixes the issue. Obviously, you should reset to defaults and reconfigure for any firmware change.
