My computer says it is connected to the network, however, it cannot see any of the other computers or connect to the internet. I am trying to set it up a wireless connection. I had to set the IP address, subnet mask (, and default gateway ( all manually. I also had to set the DNS server manually. I copied these address from my laptop which is connected via LAN. I got the numbers after using the ipconfig /all comand. does anyone have any ideas on how to get my computer connected to the network?
