Unable to connect to the internet without Ethernet cable.

I have a new router, but can't seem to connect to the internet without Ethernet cable. Trouble Shooter diagnostic tells me that "Windows cannot communicate with the device or resource (primary DNS server). I am at a total loss!


Not sure, but this post can help (as seems to be the same or a related problem) - http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/windows_7-networking/cant-communicate-with-primary-dns-server/9043f785-2f4e-4cc1-adf5-6ba5ca413749?page=1&tm=1388597381623

Good reading and see if it helps.

  • Unable to connect to the internet using Ethernet

    I have a Mac mini as I try to connect via Ethernet cable to a modem Comcast Arris TG862. I was connected via Wifi without problem (with the exception of the slower speeds). I know that the Ethernet ports on the back of the modem seem to work, since I can listen to my TV, etc. In settings > network Ethernet shows as green and connected and gives me an IP address, but as soon as I turn off Wifi no web page doesn't load.
    What I am doing wrong? I thought that it would just connect. On the Ethernet port lights, which I think means data transfer. Otherwise, I need to tell Firefox or Chrome to turn to the Ethernet connection?
    Thank you!

    The default configuration is to have the WiFi over Ethernet in the Service order.

    The order must be set such that the (desired) primary service is at the top of the list and the backup service is below.

    If you look at the order of service when it is connected to the network, the higher is the provision of access Internet one (or at least, he thinks Yes).

    To set the order, click on the menu of the machine and choose the order of Service. Move Ethernet to the top of the list. This should make it primary unless he loses the connection.

    However, it must move up Ethernet and provide a connection when you have turned off the WiFi. When you disable WiFi on the Mac, the Ethernet connection move to the top of the list and show a green connection?

  • Tecra A8 - unable to connect to the Internet via a cable


    I can't connect my laptop to the Internet via cable. The laptop does not recognize when I put the cable. Recognize only the wireless connection.

    Can someone tell me, what is the right software that I need to install in order to have cable internet?


    Normally you n t need a software to connect to Internet or router. You should only check the TCP/IP settings. This means that if you have a router that supports DHCP default settings should be allowed, otherwise, you will need to set static IP addresses. It s based on your router configuration.

    What OS do you have right now?
    Is the OS installed Toshiba now or another OS?

    You can also try to update the network driver which can be downloaded from the Toshiba page.

  • HP ENVY laptop model m7-j020 d: unable to connect to the Internet

    I have a HP ENVY 8.1 Windows running.  No problem until a few days ago, when I couldn't connect to the internet (no e-mail link or a browser).

    Wireless and ethernet connections seem to work. I can connect to the internet via another PC, smart phones, etc.

    E-mail started acting erractically. I tried to restart the computer, and then he started to install updates.  Not sure if she did because it does not connect to the internet.

    Based on the suggestions of another post, I tried: flushing the DNS, reset the battery TCO/IP and resetting the catalog.

    Restart the PC without installation updates has not improved the situation.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

  • Unable to connect to the internet update version

    I've updated to the latest version 35, but since then, the browser seems unable to connect to the internet. I thought it was my firewall that was blocking the program. I did what was suggested to work around this problem, that is, to remove my firewall and then add it again. But it does not solve the problem. There is nothing wrong with my internet, how am I be able to connect to internet by using IE or Chrome. And I was able to connect to the internet in the previous version of Firefox. Unfortunately, the new updated version is not allow me to. Have no solution?

    It is possible that your security (firewall, antivirus) software blocks or limit Firefox or the process of plugin-container without you inform, possibly after the detection of changes (update) for the Firefox program.

    Delete all rules for Firefox and the plugin-container in the permissions list in the firewall and leave your firewall again ask permission to get full unlimited access to the internet for Firefox and the plugin-container and the update process.

  • E3200 unable to connect to the Internet

    I bought a new E3200 to replace my old Linksys router.  It finds my computers and set up a network, but unable to connect to the internet via my Comcast cable modem.  I read on this forum to the questions of the Mac address, but it has located the Mac address.  Internet IP address is all zeros, and releasing and renewing the IP address does nothing.  Help!

    Connect to the computer with the Ethernet cable. Check if you are able to access the Internet.

    Open the command again.

    And do the ipconfig/all.

    Note the physical address in the Ethernet connection to the LAN card.

    Connect the Modem to the Internet Port of the router and also connect to the computer with the Ethernet cable to the Ethernet port on the router.

    Press and hold the reset for 30 seconds button.

    Cycle power to the modem and the router.

    Open the Linksys router configuration page.

    Go to the Mac address Clone and activate it.

    Enter the physical address that you noted.

    Do not click the Clone my PC MAC, Save the Settings.

    Cycle power to the modem and the router. See if you are able to access the Internet.
