Connected, not Connected. What?

#1
Hello,

Novice here. I am having a hair-raising problem. My computer is a Compaq Presario and I connect to the internet through a Netgear router with a wireless adapter. It was working fine for a few weeks all of a sudden the wireless adapter says the is connected but IE and FF says there is no internet connection. I have reset the compter countless of times tried installing different drivers, all to no avail. My system restore is not working so that is out. I cannot afford another computer right now or I would have been burned this Compaq and the people who built it. :x

Thanks for everyone's patience,

Jovonneb

Try flushing the dns cache and repairing the connection:

Code:
ipconfig /flushdns
ipconfig /renew
You may also need to renew the dhcp client on your router by releasing and renewing the public IP address at the router's IP address from your browser.

Hello kairozamorro,

Huh? I still am a novice.
I think I understand you. I will enter the commands, but the second part about dhcp and renewing the router's IP address, I am lost. please advise.

Thankey,
