    Hi All,

    Im trying to figure this out for couple of days, but im not able to find any solutions. I'm trying to connect my laptop to internet using DSL Router DNA-A211-I, im able to connect to the wifi network, but i stil get No Internet Access message displayed on the pop up window on the right bottom corner.

    Im using Windows 7 on both the machines.Im not to able to share the connection. I ve tried several solutions on many forums but nothing seems to be the right solution for my machine..


    >I dont mind sharing the connection from desktop(host).Or its OK if i can get access only to my laptop leaving desktop paralyzed.


    What should i do to get my laptop connected to Internet?

    1.

    a.Configure your modem in PPPoE.

    b. Enable DHCP in your modem.

    c. On the TCP/IP properties of your connection (wireless), set " Obtain IP address automatically ".


    2. Remove encryption and check.

    3. Configure static IP to both PC and check.

    4. Try Connectify - Turn your Windows 7 laptop into a Wi-Fi Hotspot

    5. If nothing works, post the ipconfig/all for both desktop and laptop.

    Are you in bridge/dialer mode ? Do you connect by clicking " Connect " in a dialer ? Or just by switching ON your modem ?

    Post ipconfig/all for both machines.

    Yes, use Connectify. Or configure one machine as server and share internet through a hub.

    Hi dilip,
    Connectify??
    I tried activating ICS on my PC but im stil not able to access my wifi laptop..
    do i ve to chng the IP on both the machines in order to get conected??

    By doin so will it affect when i go to office n connect my machine internal network??

    and if i configure my machine..i'l defintly get these questions..

    1. Does it mean dat the PC(server) has to be always on in order to share the connection?
    2. can i make any machine as server (laptop wifi connected) n share internet frm that!??
    3. If i make my laptop as server n turn it off, wil thr be any prob reconnecting frm othr machines?

    Ok,i installed connectify on my PC..

    Now im not able to connect when i dial..error 651..and the connectify s/w doesn't detect any wifi devices! :confused: what am i doin wrong!:rolleyes:
    Even after i exit the program, n try to connect, i stil get d same error..

    But im able to connect to internet on my laptop frm the dialer..
