Cannot connect internet(wireless)

 

What happens when you try to connet via Ethernet cable?

 

Troubleshooting always starts with the simplest configuration.

Re: Satellite A205-S5000 Cannot connect internet

You say that you can browse the web when connected with a cable and you can ping google.com when connected with wireless, but you cannot browse with the wireless connection? Have I got it right?

 

That's really hard for me to imagine!

 

Is this something new? Did it ever work properly?

 

Any other symptoms?

You didn't answer this part...

Do you have other Vista machines connected to this router via wireless?

 

I suspect the router (even though it handles other machines properly). It wouldn't hurt to cycle power on the router.

It was a able to connect wireless to a hotspot.

Issue might be something with the wireless router.

Desktop PC connected to the router using ethernet cable.

This is the only wireless laptop connected.

What's the make and model of the router?

 

Does the desktop run Vista?

 

Many older routers do not handle Vista properly. Some of the more recent ones even need firmware upgrades.
