Question by : Wireless Internet Says I am Connected But I am Not (I posted as much info as I could inside)?
Please don’t tell me to “Check it with a phone” I don’t have a phone that has internet, I just have an old flip one also unless the wireless card is inside the laptop, I don’t have one.
I am getting extremely frustrated.
When I type in ipconfig on the laptop I get
“An internal error occured: The Request is not supported.”
When I tred resetting and restarting my router it did nothing. I went hear to try and fix it.
It still tells me that I have an excellent connection to linksys, however it will not let me browse or do
anything releated to the internet.
Router Name: WRT54G
System: Windows XP Professtional
The Desktop internet works just fine so I do not know why my laptop keeps telling me that it is connected to the internet when its not.
PLEASE do not tell me just to click repair connection, It beeps and tells me I need to be connected to the internet to do that.
When I click on Wirless Network Connection Status I get this
Status: Connected (Even though I’m not)
Signal Strength: Full Bars/ Excellent
Uh, for this its hard to explain but I’m gonna try my best.
Sent has a grey line going to two grey computers, every once in a while one of the computers will turn blue.
to the right of the computers is another grey line going to received.
Next to the computers in an antenna with waves going off it.
Below that is another grey line pointing down to nothing.
Then it says Packets: 927
When I go to Wireless Network Connections
(Even though its not)
Then it has a big gold star next to connected.
