Is there a firewall on the new laptop? If so, disable it, try again, then if you can make a connection enable it again.

How do i set a Static IP for Laptop to connect D-link router

How is IE trying to connect to the Internet and make sure that it is not set to work offline.

You may find it is trying to use dial up this needs setting to local LAN.

How do i set a Static IP for Laptop to connect D-link router


Unless there's a specific reason why you want to assign a specific IP address you're better off letting the router assign one for you. If you set a static address you need to be certain that that address isn't already being used.

To set an IP Address, on your laptop/PC click on 'Start' (bottom left of screen), then right-click on 'My Network Places'. This should bring up a window called 'Network Connections'. Right-click on the Local area connection, then highlight 'Internet Protocol (TCP/IP)' (in the box headed 'this connection uses the following items:'). Click on the 'Properties' button. You can then select to obtain an IP Address automatically or enter a specific IP address. If you make a change it's best to reboot your laptop/PC as this will force the router to refresh its connection to the laptop/PC. If things aren't working then reboot the router as well, to refresh everything.

BTW I should have said LAN (Local Area Network), Not local LAN

to determine whether its a prob with your connection or the browser, you could try pinging the website, you are trying to obtain.
To do this go to start search type cmd press enter in dos box type ping [url]www.hotukdeals.com[/url]
If you receive a reply its most likely i E 7 settings or firewall config.
If you receive NO reply, then its a problem with the connection.
Try this and let us know.

Spot on. In fact that should have been one of the first steps. :thumbsup:

You can also just hit windows button and R then enter cmd in the box and hit return, takes you to the dos box a bit quicker :thumbsup:

I'd try an ipconfig /all first just to see what state the network cards are in.

What model router is it?
Did the lappy come with Norton 360 installed?

Do the ipconfig as Johnmcl7 mentioned first (getting an address from the router and not 169.x.x.x)
(make a note of the default gateway)
Then ping the gateway and a website like pcnutta mentions

If you have an internal ip address but still no internet try this:

If the router has SPI enabled try turning it off and rebooting it.
Wait for the wireless signal to connect & then open IE7 & go to Tools, Connections, Internet Settings, Click on LAN settings, and select automatically detect settings and remove any other selections (Proxy or script), click on ok.
Next select the security tab, select internet and select default level and click on apply (do this to the other icons too) then click on ok.
Close IE7 and re-open it and try a website.

This might be of some use too, but you will need to cable up to the router:

Lol :lazy: :giggle:

Few things:-

Check you actually have a WiFi link first, by checking what IP address you have and the one that the Router has assigned to it by typing in the router IP address into MSIE its default is 192.168.1.1

Is it encrypted, WEP Key?

Firewall Off?

DHCP set-up for WLAN?

for starters.
