Have a wireless network with Linksys router. Always able to connect to internet until today. It shows that I am connected to the network with excellent signal strength, but still won't connect to internet. Other computers in house with wireless adaptors connect fine. The only ie connection I can get is via ethernet cable to same router. What am I overlooking?
Thanks for responding quickly! I tried cold boot, powering down, and repair connection. None worked. When I try repair connection I get message: "the following steps of the repair operation failed: renewing IP address."
Signal strength is still excellent. All other computers in house still connect to wireless network and internet with no problem. This one works only through ethernet connection.
I disabled Tiny Personal Firewall rebooted and got an internet connection. Never had this problem before. It didn't interfere with my wired ethnet connection. It solves the one problem, but won't I be unprotected? Any suggestions?
ahh...I was going to suggest a possible firewall problem as I've run into that, but forgot to mention it (oops).
You should still be able to run the prog. it sounds like there is just some setting that is off. I would start it up and look through the settings to see if you can find what is causing the problem. I haven't used that one, but most firewalls have an internet lock that can be activated that stops all internet activity. Possibly that got activated accidentally? Just poke around in the settings and compare them to your other systems that are working.
