    It is possible to check if your computer is having internet connectivity or not. For this, the first and most simple option is to open any one of the internet browser and try to visit a website. If you are not able to see a website then you need to proceed to the next step. Now on the windows computer you need to go to the start menu and then to the control panel. In the control panel you will find an option called Network and Sharing Center. There on the left pane there will be an option called change adapter settings. Inside adapter setting you will find the various adapters and the status if it is connected or disconnected. Right click on the one which shows connected and click on status. In the new window you need to click on details. In the windows that pops up you will find the iPV 4 gateway. That would be your address of the router.

    In windows 7, the notification area networking icon will show an error indicator if there is no internet access and the error icon goes away once there is a successful connection to the internet . sometimes, if the WiFi connection requires an in-browsing authentication step, like on many guest networks in hotels or universities,then the follow pop-up bubble appears, saying as much.

    If you are running windows 7 in your PC, just open Network and Sharing Center. It will show whether the network from which you are currently connected has Internet Access or not.
    Alternate option is that, just Beside Time in the Taskbar, there is an icon that shows Network, check whether it is written Internet Access or not. If yes, then you can access Internet.

    Re: How to check if windows computer is having internet connectivity or not?

    First check weather you have the network adapter drivers or not. Go run and type devmgmt.msc. Now you will find the window of Device manager. under that check the network adapter weather it is normal or indicated with yellow color question mark. if it is indicated with yellow color question mark then you dont have your network drivers. if it is in normal condition then follow the below steps

    1. Go to run
    2. type cmd to open the command prompt
    3. type ipconfig to know your ip address
    4. Then type ping www.google.com

    if this command shows like reply from <some ip> ....etc then your internet connection is working fine.

    if it shows request timed out then it is confirmed that your internet is not working.

    for diagnosing your internet connection follow this steps

    if your internet service provider allocates ip dynamically then verify the ip that we got in step 3 and given by your isp are same or not.

    if your internet service provider allocates ip statically check the ip you have given is correct or not and make sure that your DNS servers are correct.

    Re: How to check if windows computer is having internet connectivity or not?

    Ping test is the most simplest method to check connectivity to the internet.
    To do it:
    Open command prompt by typing cmd in Run menu.
    After opening it you'll get a screen with a blinking cursor. Type ping google.com
    If it generated the message all packets transmitted successfully and zero packets dropped then your connection is good and you have internet access.

    To find the IP of your router type the command ipconfig /all in the same command prompt window. The default gateway is the IP address of your router.

    Re: How to check if windows computer is having internet connectivity or not?

    To check weather your computer is connected to internet or not follow this procedure :-

    Open Control panel from Start menu .

    After Opening Control panel click on the Networks and Internet option.

    After clicking that option the Networks and Internet page gets opened.

    In that page click on the View network status and tasks option which is below the Network and sharing center .

    After clicking on that option you will find 3 option on the left side of the page as :-

    Control Panel Home,

    Change Adapter Settings,

    change advanced sharing settings.


    Select the Change Adapter Settings option from that options.

    when you click on that option you will be redirect to a page where the internet connection system Icon will be shown.

    If the blue light is shifting from one screen to another then it mean`s that your system is connected to Internet .

    Another option is to right click on that system icon and view the Status option .

    When you view the Status option if the a window gets opened and there is a change in sending and receiving bytes then your system is connected to Internet.

    Some times when you open that page where the internet connection system Icon will be shown , the System Icon will be brured or a cross mark will be shown on that system Icon that mean that your system is not connect to any internet connection.

    Re: How to check if windows computer is having internet connectivity or not?

    In Windows 7, at the extreme left in the bottom of the screen there is a notification area network . If the notification area networking icon shows an error indicator if there is no internet access , and the error icon goes away once there is a successful connection to the internet . Show wen you are connected to the network then the notification area will be with no error indication .

    hi,

    its simple to check weather the internet connection is active in your system or not.

    firstly open any browser and search for any website,if the website connects.......then your system is able to connect to internet.

    and another tip to see that internet connection is active in your pc or not...is to just check that,right side bottom of your screen you will see an local area network symbol......

    its just like two pcs blinking together....when this process is happening then you are connected to internet.

    thats it,

    all the best.

    Re: How to check if windows computer is having internet connectivity or not?

    • Make sure that all wires are connected (for example, make sure your modem is connected to a working phone jack or cable connection, either directly or through a router).
    • Reset your modem and router. Remove the power cord from the modem and/or router, wait at least 10 seconds, and then plug the modem and/or router back in.
    • Check your router. Because of the new networking features in Windows Vista, some older network routers are not fully compatible with Windows Vista and can cause problems.

      By default, most router manufacturers use 192.168.0.1 or 192.168.1.1 as the default LAN IP address. This is the address you would enter into your browser's address bar to access the router configuration page.

Right click on the one which shows connected and click on status. In the new window you need to click on details. In the windows that pops up you will find the iPV 4 gateway. That would be your address of the router.
