Cannot Access Internet, but Wireless card connected, can see IP address
Posted on 2004-09-21
I am using a Windows XP Home laptop, with a built-in wireless card Broadcom 802.11b/g WLAN. I'm trying connect to the internet using my university's wireless networks, which require a client to manage the network connections, called AEGIS Client. The problem is that everything seems to work fine, as the client is authenticated properly, I am reading a strong "excellent" signal, and I am getting the proper IP address when doing ipconfig /all, but I cannot access anything on the internet. While another colleague can using the same processes, and I was also able to just a couple days ago.
I renewed IP many times, also restarted the computer many times. I used the winsocksxp fix software also, and checked all the network settings to ensure that nothing has changed, and everything seems to be normal, DHCP, automatic config, etc. I also restored the system using XP restoration tool, to a checkpoint when I know it has worked properly (less than 2 days ago)
The only change that I have made to the laptop since the last time everything worked is that I brought it home and connected to my home's new Roadrunner modem. The last time I checked, I was able to connect to roadrunner using LAN ethernet connection directly to the modem, however I did pop in the installation CD to check my connection as it seemed to be temporarily causing problems, but I was able to end up getting the internet at home. When I brought it back to school this morning, I can no longer get into the internet using wireless. I haven't gone home yet so don't know if it still works with Roadrunner
I have also tried disabling the LAN while using wireless. I'm beginning to think the installation CD did something evil, but I could not see any visible changes anywhere, I only used it to test my connection and made sure the connection was fine... I am running out of options, help!!
PS: SP2 installed 3 weeks ago, didn't seem to be affecting anything...
PPS: I'm recently getting this error that occurs randomly: Framework Service has encountered a problem and need to close . .. frameworkservice.exe application error ,etc wanna debug?? this seems to start only yesterday or today, seems to be in conjunction with my problem.
