    Connected to WiFi but no Internet access

    It shows that I'm connected to the wifi, but there is no internet access.
    Next, I connected an ethernet cable, and there was internet access.

    What could be the issue?
    Thanks!

    That probably means you haven't really connected to wifi. Check that you have the correct wifi password.
    You can check the connection by running a command on your machine when connected by cable and by wifi - you can paste the result here if you want us to confirm it is OK.
    Commands
    Start > Run > cmd
    ipconfig /all

    The commands will show you the IP address you r computer is using. The IP address is like a "postal address" that you use to send and receive data on the internet.

    cheers, Paul

    I do have the correct password, because I'm able to connect via my phone and another laptop.

    You have a manually configured wireless and it is very different to the wired.
    Wireless IP: 192.168.1.98
    Wired IP: 192.168.0.5
    To fix this you need to change the wireless config to use DHCP, not manual, unless you have a very specific set up with multiple networks and routers.

    cheers, Paul

    Paul, this is an XP forum so the steps for Windows XP might be a little different. OP (Fatima) hasn't said what version of Windows was being used.
    In Windows XP, go to Control Panel > Network Connections > Wireless Network Connection, right-click on Wireless Network Connection and choose Properties, select "Internet Protocol (TCP/IP)" [not TCP/IP v6] and click on the Properties button to access the TCP/IP v4 properties dialog box.

    Note to OP (Fatima): I noticed that the Intel 3945abg wireless adapter was mentioned. I also use that Intel 3945abg WLAN adapter but under Win7. In that case be sure to install the latest XP drivers for the 3945abg adapter from this Intel page. Best to get the Wireless_15.3.1_Dx32.exe package if using 32bit version of Windows XP. Run that EXE file to install or update the 3945abg drivers to v13.4.0.139.

    Can you run this command and then post the output - it will tell us how your IP address is configured?
    Start > Run > cmd
    ipconfig /all

    To copy the output, right click on the title of the Command Prompt box and select Edit > Select All.
    Right click again and select Edit > Copy.
    Now you can paste here.

    cheers, Paul
