Problems connectingto internetvia tenda wireless router

  mcmorlandhunter 05 Jan 12

I have a PC and 2 laptops connected to the router. The PC (by wire) and a laptop (wireless) can connect to the internet but the other laptop cannot. It can connect to the router and get good signal strength. I have tried deleting the connection and joining again with no joy.I have also cleared the DNS cache. Any ideas?

As a starting point check the TCP/IP connections - you do not say which operating system you are using. You need to right click on your connection and go to properties - there you should make sure that IP address is obtained automatically - for Windows 7 see this article.. For XP and Vista see this article

I would make sure that only the ipV4 is checked.

Thanks for that difarn. The IP address is already set to abtain automatically. I am using windows 7. Any ideas as to what to try next?

Assume you checked the ipv4?

Next thing to check is that you have an up to date network adaptor driver on your laptop. Go to Device Manager and right-click on your network adaptor where you will be given the option to update.

If no joy with this you could try a cmd prompt - open cmd and then type in ipconfig /release

ipconfig /renew

ipconfig /flushdns

press enter after each command.

If still no joy

It may be necessary to re-set the TCP/IP stack:-

Click on Start button. Type Cmd in the Start Search text box. Type netsh int ip reset in the Command Prompt shell, and then press the Enter key.
Restart the computer.
