    pc’s. i have wireless adapters on all the connect to the
    internet through a netgear router. prety basic stuff.
    everything is configured and the internet works on all of
    them except one. ive done all i can think of, checked
    tsp/ip, checked hardware, drivers, the whole nine. verizon
    tech support informed me that i did all i could do and it
    seems to be a pc issue. i restored and re-installed the
    drivers. my question is this, what is there left to do before
    reformatting??????/

    the new one didnt work. th old one worked on another
    computer. please i need some help. im just not sure how
    effective reformatting will be.

      Can the problematic PC ping your gateway (wireless router)? Does the output of ipconfig appear as the other PC’s that function?

        Have a fairly new dell with a wireless USB adapter. Stopped working about 8 days ago. Can actually open IE and view the router. The router is also provided by Verizon. Hard wired computer works fine. Tried typing IP address of yahoo in address bar and site not found. Anxiously waiting on solution.

          ipconfig

          First things first, I would probably try a reboot of your wireless router. If that does not fix it…

          In a command window type ‘ipconfig /all’. You should see something like:

          Ethernet adapter Local Area Connection:

          IP Address . : 192.168.0.50
          Subnet Mask . : 255.255.255.0
          Default Gateway . : 192.168.0.1
          DHCP Server . : 192.168.0.1
          DNS Servers . . : 192.168.0.1

          From the command window, type ‘ping 192.168.0.1’ (or address of your gateway).
          If you see ‘request timed out’. You do not have basic connectivity to your gateway.
          If you get a reply, type ‘nslookup http://www.yahoo.com’. You should see a resolution to IP address. If not, you have DNS issues that will need investigated.
          If you can resolve yahoo, try ‘ping http://www.yahoo.com’. If you can ping your gateway, and resolve yahoo, but cannot ping yahoo, you most likely have a gateway (wireless router) issue.
          If you can ping yahoo, but not browse to it, you most likely have a PC/ browser issue.

      Tried this?

      at the command prompt, type “ipconfig /release” (include the space after ipconfig) and then type “ipconfig /renew.”

      I have seen times that the IP is not renewed even after a reboot.

      If that doesn’t do it, disconnect the adapters and connect them again. If there is a utility used other than the one built into Windows, click “Site Survey”, look for the router name and click connect.

          have you tried swapping the wireless adapter of a working system with the non working system?

          Check this

          In reply to yup

          Check your firewall settings. It should not be the case if the one built into XP is all that you have, but some third party ones might block it.

      well you’ve tried everything else

      by churdoo ·

      In reply to PLEASE HELP INTERNET GONE WILD

      and it doesn’t really sound like the symptoms that I’ve come across of hosed WINSOCK — well it has similarities anyway, and you seem to have tried everything else so it’s worth a shot.
