Connected to wireless but can't access the internet

Hey there!
I'm connected on friend internet but I have problem to access to the internet.
I've done only this( ipconfig /all; ping 8.8.8.8 ), so you can take a look at it,
here are results:

Btw skip this Host name: UNKNOWN-PC that's how I gave a PC name.


p.s. I've never had problems with connecting to the internet ever, except friend one.
Also, I'm using Avira.

Welcome to Seven Forums,

Sometimes refreshing your wireless connections helps. This is done my removing all the wireless profiles stored in your computer then try connecting to that particular SSID (wireless network) type in the correct security key.

Thanks for reply.
I did what you said, I removed every on my list, as well the one that I'm trying to connect on, but still nothing changed.

Is the router subnet mask really 255.255.0.0?

"normal" subnet mask is 255.255.255.0

try that and post back - thanks

Yes, I've checked again, and it's 255.255.0.0
How do I change it or what I actually need to do first ?

What router is it and who configured it? I guess I'll also ask - what ISP are you using?
If your ISP tech configured it, it's probably the way it's meant to be. I'm just used to seeing 255.255.255.0

I guess it's (TP-LINK 150MBPS WIRELESS N ROUTER - TL-WR740N). I'm using wireless adapter (TP-LINK 150MBPS HIGH GAIN WIRELESS USB ADAPTER TL-WN722NC) to connect on it.
So far I know, ISP haven't configured anything to the router.
p.s. I've been looking around network and sharing center, and found there as you can see on the picture:
Local Area Connection

Wireless Network Connection 2

But I've no idea to which one I should change properly.

Ok, good.
Those are adapters on your machine. I'm not sure what the mini-port is, I'd have to research that.

When I asked about the router - I was referring to your friend's Internet connection. You said you were connecting to that. So, your PC has hardware for ethernet (Realtek - local area network) and wireless (TP-Link- wireless connection 2).

Both devices on your machine are setup to automatically get information from the router (your friend's internet connection). Since you're connecting wireless, I'll concentrate on that - we can ignore the local area connection.

What do you see when you go to
Control Panel\Network and Internet\Manage Wireless Networks

Before I go on any further,
- can your friend connect wireless?
- can your friend supply the router configuration to you?
- have you tried to connect through the local area network (Ethernet cable)

It looks as though Wireless 2 is connected and the ping lost 0 packets. Have you tried anything else, like going to a web page?
edit: the Time To Live (TTL) does expire though.

thanks

Yes ofcourse, I've tried to open any page in a browser, it's loading blank page and then error (like I'm not connected to the internet..).
I can't connect via ethernet cable to his router if u mean that, because it's like 20 meters distance between his and my house.
However, let me tell you what's really intersting with this network.
When I reset adapter or disconnect, and again connect to the same network, for 30s there isn't
white triangle with yellow exclamation mark on it, it shows good/excellent signal and as well in properties shows for IPv4: Internet, but when I try to open page, it's just loading and an error comes out.
