Having problems with your ASUS PC Laptops ?

I can only access some sites when im wireless. plug in the cable, good as gold. any ideas


Answers :

I'd bet a dollar that someone has configured some sort of security in the router. It might be passing you a nameserver address that simply won't resolve "bad" sites or it might be filtering.\015\012
\015\012You could open a cmd window and type:\015\012
\015\012ipconfig /all\015\012
\015\012Now scroll back and see what DNS servers are listed for IPV4.\015\012
\015\012If they are trying to limit your access by using a DNS service that edits your access, that is easy to fix, reconfigure to use google's DNS at 8.8.8.8 and secondary 8.8.4.4. Simple to remember.\015\012
\015\012Another possibility is that you have different networks when you connect via wire and via wi-fi and you have told your system to apply different security levels (restricted or not restricted) based on whether you are using a wired connection.\015\012
\015\012Anyway, two things to check on. \015\012
\015\012Also, when you can't access a site wirelessly, try pinging it.\015\012
\015\012Say you can't access this site\015\012
\015\012open a cmd window and type\015\012
\015\012ping www.fixya.com\015\012
\015\012
\015\012You should see:\015\012
\015\012\015\012C:\\Windows\\system32>ping www.fixya.com\015\012
\015\012Pinging www.fixya.com [66.70.119.204] with 32 bytes of data:\015\012Reply from 66.70.119.204: bytes=32 time=95ms TTL=113\015\012Reply from 66.70.119.204: bytes=32 time=95ms TTL=113\015\012Reply from 66.70.119.204: bytes=32 time=95ms TTL=113\015\012Reply from 66.70.119.204: bytes=32 time=94ms TTL=113\015\012
\015\012Ping statistics for 66.70.119.204:\015\012 Packets: Sent = 4, Received = 4, Lost = 0 (0% loss),\015\012Approximate round trip times in milli-seconds:\015\012 Minimum = 94ms, Maximum = 95ms, Average = 94ms\015\012
\015\012C:\\Windows\\system32>\015\012
\015\012If you don't - like if it comes back to a different address or it says, "address not found", then you have a DNS issue.\015\012
\015\012There might be an issue with packet length but it should affect you no matter how you are connected to the router.
These are just some ideas that came to mind.
\015\012
\015\012Depending on what means you are using to go wireless, you may have an inconsistant connection which for big sites may not let you connect.
\015\012
\015\012The wireless network you are using may - just a thought - have a firewall only allowing certain websites to be accessed; especially if it's not your own.
\015\012
\015\012Your NIC if it's installed internally in your computer may need replaced; it's either not making a full connection or it's not operating the way it should.
\015\012
\015\012If it's a network card or usb, check the software to see if it's properly installed. If the side USB port isn't fast enough, try it in the back of the laptop - these connections are much faster.
\015\012
\015\012Distance is everything when it comes to wireless connection. If you're in a hot spot and it doesnt work it's definately your card/NIC/USB. If you are outside of a 15-20 ft range of the router, it may not have a strong enough connection even though your signal bars may be at max.
\015\012
\015\012Good luck and please rate my solution accordingly.
