WNR2000v2 N300 Wireless Router

Using laptop1 (Windows 7) I have wireless connection to the internet and everything works great. Laptop2 (Windows XP) shows that I have a valid connection to my network also, yet I cannot connect to the internet. Any suggestions?

On XP, long yahoo.com, 4.2.2.2

If 4.2.2.2 comes back, then try using public DNS on network properties on XP of with ISP DNS oe 4.2.2.1/4.2.2.2

Thanks for the help.

I find that when I ping 4.2.2.2 on the XP I get no response yet the XP network properties shows that I am connected. I have no idea what this contradiction means or what to do about it. Any thoughts?

If 4.2.2.2 still fails , check any third party firewall settings

Re: WNR2000v2 N300 Wireless Router

I have succeeded in going from bad to worse. I started out by not being able to connect to my wireless network from my Toshiba Satellite Laptop (Windows XP). My network and others were visible on Wireless Network Connections. Still I could not connect to the internet. I got no response when I pinged on 4.2.2.2. So it appears that I am not in contact with my router. I tried various suggested fixes. The awful result is that now, no wireless networks are found in range. Can someone suggest a bridge that I can jump off? Alternatively, any suggestions that even a dullard can implement? The Wireless Network Connection Properties shows that I am using a Atheros AR5005G Wireless Network. There is a CONFIGURE button alongside but I have not clicked on it for fear that I would make matters even worse.

make sure you did not turn off the wifi button which are usually on edge of laptops so easily turn off the wifi with small sliding switches.

Thank you, Thank you, Thank you. You can't imagine how stupid I feel. But you did save me from jumping. Thanks again. I'm up and running.
