I'm having trouble with my internet. My laptop would show that I'm connected to the internet, yet when I try to use a browser, I cant connect to a web page.
I'm using a Linksys router (BEFW11S54v4) and a Inspiron 1150 with a Wireless 1350(b/g)WLAN miniPCI Card. I'm pretty sure everything is hooked up correctly and everything but the laptop works correctly on its own. I've talked to Dell's support for a hour and they blamed Linksys and after another hour with Linksys, they of course, blamed Dell. After talking to everyone, I'm sure that the configuration is good since I can actually connect. Its not my internet connection because the wired desktop can connect just fine and I can also connect at Border's hotspot - but like I mentioned eariler, I can't pull up a webpage.
I've pinged the router and recieved an answer, but I can't seem to ping anything else. Is there anything I can do to fix this. Oh and dumb it down a bit for me, I won't be offended :)
Thanks in advance.
a) How about a wired connection to the router from Inspiron 1150?
b) Any other computers connected to the router that work fine to internet?
7. Once you’ve done this you should find your self on the Filters tab. Scroll down to the bottom and look for “MTU”. Enable the option and input the optimum value you got earlier. So for our example this would be 1480. After that value has been inputted click Apply then Continue and you’re done.
Check if you are able to go online after this.
Oh, I tried connecting it straight into the modem. I only get little to no connectivy.
