aspire 5051awxmi it will not connect to the internet every thing is set up and i have a very good signal to the router and when i click repair it says it is unable to find a ip address started this at 9:15 this morning and am still at it after being on the phone to ntl(my service provider) netgear,belkin,acer (who make the lap top and even ebuyer where i bought it on top of that someone advertised in my local paper. found this site in a magazine and read the problems from vodkagirl mine are the same except with a new laptop.thought i'd try a wider audience.

a few things to try

One is can you post an ipconfig /all of a working PC and your new laptop - post in seperat answers and mark which is which - so we know, just in case

next download and copy - using a CD or if the laptop works connected by cable this program

ipconfig /all
TWO Methods to do that - some people have problems with ONE----

ONE ---------------------------------
start
run
cmd
ipconfig /all

rightclick in the box
select all
enter
control key + C key - to copy
then reply here and
control key + V to paste

TWO -----------------------------------------------

Start, Run, CMD to open a DOS window and type:

IPCONFIG /ALL >C:\RESULT.TXT

Open C:\RESULT.TXT with Notepad and copy/paste the entire results here.

-------------------

is the router set up for a secure connection - if so it may be worth removing and see if the laptop will connect - maybe a problem with secruity

some laptops have a switch for the wireless on the machine - it is turned on i assume

---------------------
also

start>
control panel>
system>
hardware tab>
device manager button>

network adapters
click on the + sign

post backs whats there

also any ! X or ?

glad it all worked - the switches for wireless {some real switches others are special keys or combination of keys ) are a real gotcha - also often they seem to detect the wireless connection but not let you connect which is confusing for everyone

anyway

:up:
