Re: Wireless icon shows No Internet NOW MY IP CHANGED ON ONE PC
Thank you. The only thing I've got in my favor is that even though it may say "no access" I still have access. I went to the lenovo drivers site but couldn't find any wireless drivers for my wireless adapter. (I have Broadcom which isn't listed).
I have some software called ReadyComm 5 - which has something to do with connecting to the internet. I don't use it. I think I'll remove it.
I have been using sleep on two ethernet connected computers for a few years and never had this networking problem. The wired computer I mentioned in the post above this one where the Actiontec changed the IP - yesterday showed Local internet connection and Internet connection. Today it shows as Network, Local Only, which is what it should be.
The laptop always went into sleep and hybernate without any of these networking problems either. I'm not knowledgeable with any of this, but I have to conclude it's the actiontec router.
I just hope I continue to be able to access the internet and my computers are not being compromised.
So have you tried another wifi router? At a friend's house, school, starbucks? See if it happens there?
If it doesn't, then yes may be the ActionTec, a quick stop at a Verizon FiOS store will get you a new one, or over the phone for a shipment.
