Network Nightmares

By Richtea88 ·
I seem to be able to access my router, and in the router settings page the internet status is connected, and my signal strength is excellent. I have tried all the common fixes, such as making sure my internet settings are set to automatically detect settings, and tried resetting my router, and winsock. I can get access to the internet with an Ethernet cable no problem. I've even tried un-installing and re-installing my network card and drivers. I've had absolutely no luck sorting this problem. Here is what I get when run CMD ipconfig/all on my computer

One issue...

by TobiF In reply to Network Nightmares

I suggest disabling IP V6 for your wireless connection.

Thanks, but no luck.

by Richtea88 In reply to One issue...

I think its a DNS problem, as I can access certain pages by typing in an ip address. tried changing my DNS servers to googles public server, and other ones to no avail.

Couple of things noted

by robo_dev In reply to Network Nightmares

I noted that your DHCP Lease duration is 18 years (!). I would expect this may cause some sort of problem, as the normal DHCP lease time is something like 12 hours, and sometimes wlan connections get all confused with respect to DHCP.

Also, being able to set a lease time that ludicrously long makes me question that your router is entirely well, as it could have some sort of firmware bug.

If your problem is, in fact, DNS, then the next question is how your router gets to the Internet. If, for example, your router is connected to another router, DNS requests may be forwarded too slowly, or there may be similar issues.

Thanks for your input

But my mums lease is even more ridiculous, and the internet works fine for her laptop and anyone else who uses our router. I'm losing hope =(
