    My so has a virgin notepad and everytime i try to connect to the internet via WIFI or a dongle it states cnnot load web etc........
    When a diagnostics is done it states there are conflicting IP adresses, any thoughts lads.
    I have tried virgin helpline but keep getting someone who sounds like an australian dutchman who to be honest is no help at all.

    click start - run...

    a small box will appear, in it type 'cmd' without quotes..

    a black box with blue header will appear, in this type (underscore is a space ) ipconfig_/all

    a load of guff will appear.

    right click on the the blue bar at the top of the black window, right click select properties...


    In the options tab, put a tick in 'quick edit mode'

    next box will ask if you want it to be for this time or all....select all...

    Maximaise the black box best you can so you can see all the text. starting at the bottom right, left click and drag so all the text is highlighted..

    when its highlighted, leave the mouse alone and press CTRL and the 'C' key at the same time.

    you can then either post in here, or pm me. in the main text body of either the post or pm, get the cursor active in the left clicking where you would normally type, and then press the keys CTRL and V together, this will paste the contents of your network/ip stuff you discovered into a message.

    It's probably something to do with what is called DHCP....this is a function of your broadband routers that assigns IP sub address to PC's it see's on your local network.

    Another quick easy test is to eliminate any wireless, and plug the lappie straight into the router with an ethernet cable.

      Slight err on my part, as you can't get on the net with the virgin lappie, you won't be able to post info fro the IP config search.

      try this:

      open the windows control panel, and open up network connections.

      in there find 'wireless network connection' right click on it and select properties.

      in the white window of the box that opens click 'internet prtotocol ( TCP/IP) so it goes blue, press the properies button below it.

      ensure that both 'obtain an IP address, and obtain DNS servers automatically' are checked/ticked.

          Nver used vista, but according to the interweb:

          To immediately open the connection list, you can just type ncpa.cpl into the Start menu search box:

                              I don't have one of these, but maybe:

                              ensure sim contacts in dongle & sim card are clean.

                              try a different unlocked dongle.

                              google your dongle model number, see if there are any software or frimware updates, and see what problems other people are having.



                              are you using this in the same location, every day?
