Accessing the internet - wireless
Hi,
Sony Vaio with Vista is connected wirelessly
to a HOME network.
It can access all other computers.
Any one of them can access the Interment.
This one does not.

At work, this computer CAN access the Internet
(while wirelessly connected to the COMPANY network)

Seems to be a "setting" issue?
Any advise?

Re: Accessing the internet - wireless
Hi
It might be configured at work in a special way thta is not compatible with
Home Network.
Ask the IT guys at work on how to connected to a Home Network.

Re: Accessing the internet - wireless
why are you using these specific DNS servers?. and you shouldn't be
getting/using an attbi.com DNS suffix.

see http://dns.comcast.net/dns-ip-addresses2.php for some DNS servers.

Re: Accessing the internet - wireless
Thanks Barb,

I'm not sure how to answer your question.
I didn't set, intentionally , any of them.
Is it not Comcast setting?

(Comcast bought the local cable operation from ATT,
thus the ne1.client2.attbi.com, I think)

Said that - please look at my original problem,
repeated, below:

Sony Vaio with Vista is connected wirelessly to a HOME network.
(Exception - AboutTime, a pronrams to "set" the clock, does access the
Internet)
It can access all other computers.
Any one of them can access the Interment.
This one does not.

At work, this computer CAN access the Internet
(while wirelessly connected to the COMPANY network)

Seems to be a "setting" issue?
Any advise?

Re: Accessing the internet - wireless
what exact cable modem and router do you have? is it a combination device? if
that ipconfig /all that you posted was from your home while in the state of "no
Internet connectivity" I'd say that you have a DNS issue. Your time program
probably uses an IP address to access the Internet.

If you could set the DNS addresses statically in the machine you are having
issues with, we'd know this for certain.

If Comcast is handing out those DNS addresses, that is a problem. And if so, it
is probably something I can do something about.

I'd like to see an ipconfig /all from one of the computers that CAN access the
Internet..

Re: Accessing the internet - wireless
Hi
You indicated that at work you can connect.
That means that your Wireless is basically OK.
Many work places have special setting for Wireless. Sometimes their settings
are not compatible with home networks.
If you play around with it might Not connect any more at work.
If you do not provide info about what kind of connection it is at work,
rather than Helping you we can end up hindering your system.

Re: Accessing the internet - wireless
Thanks, Barb,

The Acer Notebook I have (Windows 7) can access all other
computer at home AND the Internet.

Running ipconfig /all on the Acer:

Windows IP Configuration
Host Name . . . . . . . . . . . . : UziNotebook
Primary Dns Suffix . . . . . . . :
Node Type . . . . . . . . . . . . : Hybrid
IP Routing Enabled. . . . . . . . : No
WINS Proxy Enabled. . . . . . . . : No
DNS Suffix Search List. . . . . . : ne1.client2.attbi.com

Wireless LAN adapter Wireless Network Connection:
Connection-specific DNS Suffix . : ne1.client2.attbi.com
Description . . . . . . . . . . . : Broadcom 802.11g Network Adapter
Physical Address. . . . . . . . . : 00-26-5C-AB-37-DB
DHCP Enabled. . . . . . . . . . . : Yes
Autoconfiguration Enabled . . . . : Yes
Link-local IPv6 Address . . . . . :
fe80::d560:e529:37e8:c69c%12(Preferred)
IPv4 Address. . . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.1.105(Preferred)
Subnet Mask . . . . . . . . . . . : 255.255.255.0
Lease Obtained. . . . . . . . . . : Thursday, February 25, 2010 7:57:06
AM
Lease Expires . . . . . . . . . . : Saturday, February 27, 2010 7:57:06
AM
Default Gateway . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.1.1
DHCP Server . . . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.1.1
DHCPv6 IAID . . . . . . . . . . . : 301999708
DHCPv6 Client DUID. . . . . . . . :
00-01-00-01-12-22-51-86-00-26-22-20-38-DC
DNS Servers . . . . . . . . . . . : 68.87.71.230
68.87.73.246
NetBIOS over Tcpip. . . . . . . . : Enabled

Etc. Etc.

I can see that the "Connection-specific DNS Suffix . :"
line on the VAIO was empty while the same line
on the Acer Notebook has: ne1.client2.attbi.com

How (exactly) can I "set" the VAIO Laptop with
this DNS (I'm not sure if I'm on the right track...)

Much appreciated,
Uzi,

Re: Accessing the internet - wireless
Please advise what cable modem and router you have?

I'd like you to reset tcp/ip as the next step to see if you get different DNS
servers. To do this:

1. Select“Start”, click "All programs", then click "Accessories".

2. Right-click "Command Prompt", and click "Run as administrator". If you are
prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or
provide confirmation.

3. Please enter the following commands, and hit enter after each



netsh int ip reset

inconfig /flushdns

4. Reboot your computer. See if you can access the Internet. If not, check
ipconfig /all again and provide the DNS servers.

your connection specific suffix SHOULD BE something like hsd1.ma.comcast.net and
not attbi..
