Hello,

I'm having some issues connecting wirelessly with my netbook. I am able to get an IP address and the signal shows strong however, when I open a browser it will not connect. I've tried several browsers, and different configurations to no avail. I am able to connect with an ethernet cable. All the drivers are updated and I've also tried uninstalling the wireless card and re-installing it but that doesn't work either. I also have multiple devices connected to my network so I don't think that my network could be at fault but I'm running out of options here. I don't know if this will help but I ran a NETSH DIAG GUI on the wireless card and here are the results:

It's able to ping 192.168.1.9 but not 192.168.1.1? I'm kind of a noob when it comes to this IP stuff but I believe the 192.168.1.9 is the netbook itself. Why is it able to ping somethings and not others? Any help with this issue is GREATLY appreciated.

Thank you

what OS?

what router?

can you post your network info? IP, gateway, DNS server.

have you tried to set the network card to G-only mode?
