My desktop under Vista Home Premium does not connect to the internet.

I have an Acer Aspire X 1200 desktop equipped with a NVIDIA NForce network controller. About 1 week ago I was browsing the internet, Norton anti-virus popped up and told me to renew my subscription. Now, I've never had Norton on my computer and when you click Remind Me later, my internet crashed. Now the whenever I plug my ethernet cable in the box, it connects to my router Motorola 5BS101 surfboard, but it does not connect to the Internet. I am running Windows Vista Home Premium. I tried to run malware programs remover, thinking it was a malware, nothing done. I tried to run to remove virus and nothing. I tried to change the IP address to my my laptop was broadcasting, because the internet runs on it, but no results. When using the command prompt to find out what the problem is, it says the active IP routing: routing WINS unactivated: No. looking at the stats of network adapters, it says active DHCP: No. address IPv6 local link: fe80::15f9:58e2:c2d8:66e7 10%
Autoconfiguration IPv4: Also using ipconfig / renew, said the message DHCP is not enabled.

Are you sure you never had a Norton trial subscription on your computer?

Norton will do strange things.

Try to use the Norton removal tool.

The computer you are using now if you have an Internet connection with the other > download / save > copy to Flash Drive > transfer / install it and launch it on the other computer.

See you soon.

    The zero configuration utility works very well. But it is a desktop computer and on cable. All other wired and wireless PC in the office is working well, then it's definitely this PC. He came out of nowhere, I install a network printer on the PC but that's all.

    Your messages are a bit terse, but if I understand correctly

    • You have a router connected to the Internet and multiple computers connected to the router, some Ethernet cable and others by wireless.
    • All but one of these computers can reach successfully from the Internet via the router.
    • A computer that can't browse the Internet is connected to the router via an Ethernet cable.
    • You disconnected the cable between the router and the desktop problem and connected it to a Windows 7 laptop and the laptop connected to the Internet via the router.
    • You haven't seen any error message (except, perhaps, a message on "Limited or no connectivity").
    • You have installed Windows XP Service Pack 3 (or at least Service Pack 2)

    Assuming that all the foregoing is an accurate summary of the situation, I suggest that you do the following:

    Open a command prompt window (start > run > cmd > OK)
    Type the following lines and press ENTER after each line

    Netsh reset winsock catalog
    netsh int ip reset c:\resetlog.txt

    Close the command prompt window and restart the computer.

  • Homer in Windows Server does not connect to the internet.

    I installed Windows Home Server on a self-built media server. Everything on the hardware is working properly. The server software is installed. The ethernet line is connected to my Linksys router. The power light is on decision-making on the case ethernet connection. The power led is on the router where the ethernet is connected. So, in my view, that the issue is not material.
    1. the server does not connect to the internet.
    2. my computer does not recognize the server when I install the Windows Home Server Connector software.
    3. the wizard of Linksys on my computer does not recognize the server as a "new device".

    I feel like I'm missing a driver, maybe a driver of ethernet controller, but do not know how to diagnose the problem.  I downloaded the Windows tool that identified the problems I listed, but solutions are not feasible.

    I have a HP G60 Notebook PC with Windows Vista Home Premium, it is about 4 years old. I recently got a new Cisco Linksys E1500 wireless router, which is connected to my home computer. My laptop shows that it is connected to the home network, but it does not connect to the internet. Other laptops in the House are able to connect to the network and to the internet. Mine seems to be the only one not working do not. Why it is not working? What should I do about it?

It did not work! I have also connected my laptop directly on the modem and it does not always connect to the internet. I tried to reset the network card. My IP settings are set to automatic.

    My internet connection was not a problem before last week (when I got a new router). What is the problem with my computer? Help, please!


    If you have an Atheros wireless adapter in your PC and you have not updated the driver, I recommend that you install it.

    Wireless adapters Atheros with former pilots, dislikes the new Linksys routers.

    If you have an Atheros wireless card, and your wireless driver is more than 2 years, I am very confident that this will solve your connection problem.

  • Atheros AR9285 in CQ61-410US wireless network card does not connect to the Internet after the update of the adapter driver

    I have a Compaq Presario CQ61-410US (WA974UA) which is equipped with an Atheros AR9285 B/G/N wireless network adapter.   The laptop Internet access was fast and stable when using a Wi - Fi N.   Its pilot AR9285 was the initial version of the factory.  But because there were so many subsequent driver updates, I've updated the display driver version from the support page (sp48755.exe).  However, after updating the driver, I immediately lost Internet access.   The laptop is running Windows 7 Home Premium with Service Pack 1 and 64-bit.

    Any advice would be appreciated.


    I'm glad that you were able to restore your internet connection.

    I'd go with the latest driver HP vice one from another source.

    The only time wherever I go outside HP for wireless network drivers is if you have an Intel wireless card.

    My recommendation is to use the free MS Security Essentials antivirus/antispyware, which never interfere with how "things important works" on your PC, such as network connections.

    Your router with a hardware firewall and a software firewall Windows. I don't see the importance of adding other firewalls.

    Unless you have a lot of albums secret info on your PC that pirates would like to get my hands on, these fully functional security roadblocks are adequate for most of us.

  • Airport utility: green points on the AirPort Extreme & Internet; Mini Mac does not connect to the internet.

    Airport utility shows green points on the AirPort Extreme and the Internet, but my my Mac mini does not connect to the internet. IPhones and 2 portable Windows connect very well, and see all the devices on the home network. The problem occurred after that PSI has swapped an ancient for a Comtrend CT5072T DSL modem. I tried to stop and things start back up as if the installation of the internet for the first time. No joy.

    The airport connects using DHCP in Bridge Mode

    The router address is

    Address IPv4 is

    DNS server is the same as the router, but grayed out

    Mac Mini IPv4 Address is

    IPv6 automatically configures

    Also updated the firmware of the airport; no change.

    ISP guy was friendly but puzzled. He started at the top floor level Tech, so I do not know when I hear back.

    Any ideas to fix?

    Thank you.

    Network preferences may be damaged.

    Open the Finder. In the Finder menu bar, click go > go to folder

    Type or copy paste the following text:

    / Library/Preferences/SystemConfiguration

    Click OK, and then move all files in the SystemConfiguration folder to the trash.

    Restart your Mac. See if that makes a difference.

    Your Mac will generate a new SystemConfiguration folder for you.

    Then open AirPort Utility located in HD > Applications > Utilitiies

    Make sure that both Internet and Extreme are green.

  • Satellite L350 does not connect to the internet, network adapter yellow exclamation

    Trying to help my Nan with his laptop...
    Model is Satellite L350-170

    Does not connect to internet, even using the Ethernet cable. Network cards have yellow exclamation marks on it and seems he needs an updated driver. How the hell can I download and update if it does not connect to the internet. And then, what update is necessary, because I searched on here and there is no update driver for network card?

    She had various internet help from its supplier and a visit at home but still no joy. Internet works fine on other devices. Any advice greatly appreciated.

    All the drivers can be downloaded from the Toshiba UE driver page.
    Choose your model of laptop in the form of download and the system that is pre-installed on you unit.
    Then, you will get the list of drivers.

    If you are not able to connect to the internet due to lack of driver LAN/WLan, then you another computer for download.

    You asked how to remove the network card?
    Usually, you need to access the Device Manager (in Control Panel) then we need to expand the area to network adapters and you will find the LAN and WLan card.
    Click the single LED adapter, and then press or click on uninstall button driver

  • HP HPE 180 t does not connect to the Internet at startup

    Hoping someone can help, I had 1 cat and 3 service calls to HP with no luck.  It's a whole new HPE 180 t, 12 GB of RAM, HD 10 000 rpm option, GTX 260 card, etc.  It has Intel 82567V-2 Gigabit controller.  I use a Linksys WRT400N router and a new cable modem of Motorola SB6120.

    On the day of arrival only, HP had problems to connect to internet at startup or wakeup.  No doubt connects 1 on each tent 5-6.  I tried everything - reset the cable modem, router, release and renew the IP address, download the new drivers from Intel, etc.

    Very frustrating - and the thing is, I know that the network is working, because my old Dell 8400 is sitting here and it connects every time. It is connected to the same router, as does my laptop Dell 1545, no connection problems at all.

    HP support was not able to help.  So I have a brand new computer that does not connect to the internet 95% of the time.  Any ideas would be appreciated... THX.

    OK sports fans, keep your fingers crossed.  Come back from Wal-Mart, where I bought a router Netgear WGR614v10 to yestertech on sale for $34.98.  Came home, installed and everything works!  HP connects instantly connects Dell computer Dell laptop connects, works of modem cable Motorola...

    Tried everything on, off tension, different combinations of reboots, etc., in order to give it the toture test and hit the wood, everything works fine.

    Then, the last Linksys WRT400N router apparenly, which isn't on the list of recommended routers Comcast, will not work with this computer.  Now that I did a few Google searches on this subject, I find others who say the same thing.  I called an old friend of mine who is a type of network with the Federales and he said, what Comcast told him specifically NOT to use the router WRT400N Comcast internet service.  So go figure...

    I hope that this case is closed, and thanks for the help and suggestions of everyone and stick with me on this.  I hope that this thread will help others.  The largest that I can give to others is to ensure that you ask your ISP first to see if they have a list of recommended hardware!  Ciao...
