still having a problem using wireless to go online.

i thought it was my BT home hub v1.5 but managed to find a version 2 (coool) at the boot fair still wrapped.

gleefully plugging it in i ran the software ,the PC sees the hub (good signal hoorah) the software sees the broadband connection (cool) and checks my phone number to make sure its me but after its told me alls well and have a nice day it wont connect to here! or anywhere!!!

web browser page tells me everything looks ok but check the firewall etc ,done that switched it off! nothing! even bt help chunders to a halt because it cant connect.plug in ethernet and alls well!

I can see the hub in wireless networks with a good signal and its connected ,why cant i play online???.

second attempt at installing told me to make windows control the connections ,did that and it seemed happy and continued the install.

 

looking at the wireless conection details windows cant see a problem with it but the details have blanks after the "default gateway" and "WINS server"? the ethernet connection has the "default gateway" filled in but not the WINS one :wacko:

Try manually configuring the IP address and default gateway on the wireless connection - give it the same default gateway and subnet mask as your wired connection, but change the last number in the IP address to anything else between 2 and 255.

another strange thing which maybe a reason ,i also have a wireless printer if i connect to it (not found how to do it auto yet) it disconnects the hub :wacko:

i thought wireless solved all these connection problems :rolleyes:

On the printer thing, it seems to me that you want the printer to connect to the HomeHub as just another client on the network, not the PC to connect directly to the printer. You want your PC to be on one wireless network, and your printer to also be on the same network, whereas I think you have the printer running its own network which your PC is connecting to separately to the wireless network run by your homehub. This could be causing addressing problems.

 

If you open a command prompt (start/run.../ and type cmd) and type

 

ipconfig > c:\dump.txt

 

and then show us the contents of dump.txt, it might be obvious what's wrong.

It should do - odd. Try putting it in manually- use 192.168.1.254. (Do properties on the connection, internet protocol properties, and fill it in there).

Hmm, that's not good.

 

OK, let's just see whether there is any connectivity at all. Try disconnecting the ethernet cable and at a command prompt typing

 

ping 209.85.229.99
