WLAN Errors

When we search for access points we are able to see “Open” networks. But when we try to connect to Internet we often get errors.

1. No Gateway Error : This is the most common one. There are many reasons for this. One of them being poor signal strength. But the main reason is the “poorly” configured router . If the router doesn’t provide DHCP, we’ll surely get this error. We have to manually configure the IP address, gateway, DNS, proxy (if any) to establish a proper connection to the Internet. Another reason, being there is NO internet connection in the network (it may be a corporate LAN).

2.Cannot find WLAN network: If you get this error when you try to establish a connection with an access point having a good signal strength, you can assume it is a MAC filtered network. No need to waste time around it !
