    hi i have a thomson router and a toshiba laptop. i have installed the router
    and it says i am connected with full signal strength, but when i try to open
    an internet explorer page it says it cannot display the page. i have gone
    into internet options and have gone into connection doctor but it says there
    is no problem with the connection. i then tried to reinstall the router and
    it said to check static DNS entry. can anyone please help? thanks, julie.

  2. Hi Julie --

    Find out the IP addresses of your ISPs DNS servers, then go to the
    connection properties for your wireless connection on your computer, and
    add the DNS server IP addresses to the connection.

    Also ensure that your router is not acting as a DNS server, and use the
    command prompt command "ipconfig /all" to verify that your computer is
    receiving an IP address from your router. (So keep DHCP enabled but disable
    DNS.)
