Customer Question
Have an old Gateway M320...
Have an old Gateway M320. Used to work fine, but now does not access internet. Runs through a Verizon Router. About a month ago the router failed and was replaced. All other devices connected to router work fine, but Laptop does not. A review of connected networks and WiFi's shows the nework on the laptop screen, but cannot connect to internet. Check function of Fn/F2 keys and get correct results, but turning it on and off does not help. There were no hardware changes in the laptop. Could I have a driver failure? How do I get a replacement drive? I would have to have sent to my PC and then transferred using a flash drive intermediate step.

Can you plug a network cable from laptop to the router instead of using WiFi?

Ask Your Own Networking Question
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
Did that with no change in operation. You cannot connect to my laptop because it does not connect to internet. You will have to tell me what to do and look for via my PC and I will do it.
Network Technician: Cody, Senior Systems Administrator replied 2 years ago

Go to start menu --> run --> type in cmd --> ok --> in black window type in ipconfig

what do you have here?

lists one ethernet adapter and two tunnel adapters specificationas. At top say "media disconnected", which is true. It shows IP addresses as 192.168.1.6 which I believe is correct.
Network Technician: Cody, Senior Systems Administrator replied 2 years ago

what's is the subnetmask and gateway?

Ask Your Own Networking Question
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
I read more about the ethernet adapter and it says"Wireless Network Connection 2", which I believe is correct. It also says Default Gateway 192.168.1.1, which I know is the router.
Network Technician: Cody, Senior Systems Administrator replied 2 years ago
