Router Problem: Page cannot be displayed

by leahcats / March 14, 2007 1:57 AM PDT

O/S: Windows XP

I have a wireless connection with a Cable modem and an Aopen router Model

# AOI 906.

I have been able to connect to the internet in the past with my router.

I have a Desktop and a laptop computer.

When I go to my IE explorer on my laptop I get "page cannot be displayed"
This started happening recently for some reason.

The internet works fine on my desktop.

On my laptop, I am connected to the wireless network ok as it says:

wireless connection (default)
Signal Strength : Excellent
Status: Connected

I have ran spybot and adaware, and an antivirus check..no probs found.

I have tried unplugging the modem and router, and restarted my laptop

numerous amounts of times. No luck

I have tried to ipconfig /release
and ipconfig /renew. No luck.

I have tried an WINSOCK Fix for XP:

(http://www.spychecker.com/program/winsockxpfix.html)No luck.

I am receiving an IP address so my ISP is not the problem.

On my laptop Ipconfig says:
IP Address: 192.168.2.101
Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.0
Default Gateway: 192.168.2.1

when I ping www.google.com or www.yahoo.com I get the following

message:
Ping request could not find host www.google.com. Please check the name

and try again.

When I ping the IP address I get the following message:
Pinging 192.168.2.101 with 32 bytes of data

Packets sent = 4 received =4 Lost= 0

P.s On my laptop, I am able to connect to the internet using another

connection source which is my Blackberry with Verizon as a modem. I am able to surf the internet that way, so I know it isn't a problem with my computer.

I would really like to resolve this problem so I can access the internet wirelessly through my router.

Please help!

Thanks

Leah

I too am having a similar problem with my setup, but my hardwired desktop is having the problem and the wireless laptop is running flawlessly, i ran through the same diagnostics as you did and did some research and found that a program called windll.exe may be the problem, but i removed it from startup and registry to no avail. I know the connection is good and my hardware is good that just leaves the software, most likely a virus of some sort, I am going to try a program called pagecannotbedisplayed.exe, it is supposed to return the registry to working order and restore the winsock portion of windows, i too did it manually but I'll try almost anything at this point.
Good Luck
