Wireless Lan USB 2.0 Adaptor Problem returned.

I have installed this on an XP PC Tower and it finds and connects (after a password for WEP) and shows connected and excellent signal strength.

The problem is when asked to find Google or any other link it fails with a message unable to find server.

The problem has returned

I have DNS (server) error 12007 with no HTTP HTTPS or FTP connection.

I used the ipconfig/all again but this did not work this time.

I have tried (on pc advisor advice) to winsock reset catalog and made connection but I was not sure which worked.

Now neither work and although I still have good wireless connection at 54 mbps I cannot get an internet connection.

Running IPCONFIG /ALL doesn't *fix* anything, it just provides details of all network adapters installed in the PC.

However, run it again, right click in the Command Prompt window, "Select All" and press Enter to copy the details to the clipboard. Paste the details into a forum reply here.

If you are unable to paste the details directly from the computer, because it cannot get online, paste them instead into a blank "Notepad" file, transfer the file to a working PC and copy/paste the details from there.

What kind of info do you need? I have ip info assigned by DCHP of IP address/subnet etc.

The gateway,server dhcp and the server dns are the same.
the message seems to indicate the 192.168.1.etc has failed.

>>> What kind of info do you need?

I don't know - it's really of a matter of looking at the IPCONFIG /ALL details to see if there's anything in there that doesn't look quite right and taking it from there.

There are other things you can try such as running:

IPCONFIG /FLUSHDNS

and then:

IPCONFIG /REGISTERDNS

You could also allocate fixed DNS addresses manually, using either your ISP's DNS Servers or the "OpenDNS" servers:

208.67.222.222
208.67.220.220

I will see about a "Notepad" and paste later. It is strange the a laptop is running OK on the same router but the remote PC will not "surf" at all.

It is also strange that it has connected normally quite a lot of times but if it is not used for a few days it seems to forget how.

I connected on 14th and updated a/virus, closed down and next time 1 hour later on had lost connection.

Has my info shown up the problem?

  peter99co 19:09 19 Feb 10

Still unable to connect!

  rizlo29 19:20 19 Feb 10

You using bt? That's same dns, gateway as mine. Mine is working fine.

Can you try an open dns? see if that works. Like I say, I'm using same dns and mines fine.
