Windows 7: Wireless issues.

20 Mar 2011   #1

Wireless issues.

Under the wireless icon, it showed a signal strength of 5/5 bars.

But when I tried to access the internet, Firefox gave this response - Couldnt find the server of XXX website. Tried both chrome and IE and with similar results =/

Any help will be appreciated

The signal strength only shows the connection between router and PC.
If the router is offline, so are you.
Enter the router menu and try to find an option that shows your IP address and further says whether it's a static or dynamic one.

One way to test this issue is to do a simple ping. This will at least verify that you can get a connection out.

Open up command prompt (you can type command prompt in the search bar in the start menu)

Once opened type
Code:
ping google.com
If you get a reply you should be good. (Sample Output)
Code:
C:\Users\Ryan>ping google.com
Pinging google.com [74.125.127.99] with 32 bytes of data:

Ping statistics for 74.125.127.99:
    Packets: Sent = 4, Received = 4, Lost = 0 (0% loss),
Approximate round trip times in milli-seconds:
    Minimum = 425ms, Maximum = 437ms, Average = 430ms
However if you get Request Time-Outs, or Destination Host Unreachable then we have an issue.

Hope this helps,
Ryan

Since we're already in the command line...
If the ping wasn't successful, please type
ipconfig /all
and paste the results here.

Right now the connection is fine, but it will go from bad to worse at random. I don't know if it is of any help now, but here it is -

Thanks a lot.
Please be so kind and provide another ipconfig /all when the connection does not work, as well as trying the ping mentioned above.
Cheers mate.

Hi,

Microsoft ISATAP is a IPv6 related component. The driver for ISTAP can be reinstalled via Device Manager - Action – Add legacy hardware.


However, if the problem persists after reinstalling the driver, you may need to refer to the following KB article:


(KB932520) On a Windows Vista-based computer, the Microsoft ISATAP adapter appears with a yellow exclamation mark next to it in Device Manager, and you also receive an error message
http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;EN-US;932520


Hope it helps!

You may also want to try

Wireless Network - Remove

You can then completely re-connect as if it was a brand new access point

Where is the legacy hardware supposed to be installed ? The Artheros wireless network adaptor ?
