I have a DELL laptop which comes with both a wirless and ethernet adpater. Yesterday, after browsing I shut it down and when I rebooted it refused to connect to the internet using wireless. (The wireless router seems to be working fine since I have another computer which connects to the internet without any problem). The first thing I did was to ping my router:
ping 192.168.1.1 and the dreaded request timed out message appeared. I realized I am not even connected to the local network and as usual the windows troubleshoot gave me this message -
The connection between your access point, router, or cable modem and the internet is broken. Then back to squareone I decided to give resetting my wireless card a try:
netsh winsock reset netsh int ip reset resetlog.txt
and rebooted the laptop. But to no avail- The wirless connection still refused to work. So then I connected the ethernet cable and tried to see if that would work -But it didnt. It still could not ping my network. So what exactly should I do next to get the internet working on the computer.
The adapter properties are
obtain an ip address automatically. When i type in ipconfig it shows me that the computer has an ip address of 192.168.1.102 assigned to it.
