Windows 7: Default Gateway Broken Windows 7

I am using a wireless network. I'm currently looking for somebody with a wire to connect it to the router. I did however change my DNS server as directed. On the network causing me problems, the change of the DNS server did not affect my poor internet connection at all and still was able to use the internet for a few minutes before the "default gateway broken" troubleshoot came up. However I forgot to change it back when I was using my school's network and was not able to connect to the internet at all. Hope this makes result makes some sense.

Please post your results when you get a cable. Also if you can could you possibly temporarily connect another device to the router and test your internet on that device? Possibly a friend or relatives laptop?

This can greatly help me if you could

Just a guess; The fixed DNS servers are blocked by your school's firewall, for whatever reason, therefore not related to your other issue.

Found a cable and I'm currently plugged into the router on my laptop via LAC and the internet is working perfectly without any problems. Used my roommates laptop as well with the cable and worked perfectly with no problem as well.

This may be a hardware problem then in which case you may have to purchase a replacement wireless card for your laptop or a new router

Are you able to test wireless internet connectivity with your roommates laptop? This can help test if this is an issue with your router or your specific laptop

Also just a question, when connecting to the schools network do you connect using wired or wireless?

Many Thanks,
Josh

Hi Josh,

Sorry but I have been out of the country and haven't been using my laptop, which still doesn't connect to the internet. I connect to my schools internet with wireless. If it is a router/modem/wireless card problem, do have products you would suggest?

Have you tested another person machine via wireless on your router?

Also, what is the make/model of your router and laptop as you may need to update the software on them to see if that resolves the incompatibility.

Since you can connect to your schools network fine I do not think that this is a hardware issue
