Most laptops have a small switch or a function key option to disable the wireless radio. Try looking around the edges of the laptop for the switch usually next to the wireless antenna symbol.

I have an old Victorian house with an apartment in the back above the barn/garage. I am trying to get wireless internet connections to all sections of the house but my current router (3 years old) is not...


Hello.

Yes. As you mentioned, you have a Victorian house, with very thick walls. I'd suggest drawing a diagram showing the rooms and floors that need access.

First, if possible, I would place your router in a centralized location, if all 5 people need similar strength access.

Then what you need are multiple repeaters to go with your router. Place them strategically, so that the wireless access signal can bounce off of them and go around walls, instead of through walls and floors.

Hope this helps.

If you're Bell sympatico is a wireless modem/router and your laptop has built in wireless on it you just need to connect to the wireless signal of the Bell sympatico then that should be the time you can access internet with the laptop, But if your Bell sympatico is only a plain DSL modem you need to get a wireless router that will share the internet to your laptop and desktop so you can roam in your house with your laptop here is a sample of wireless router Linksys WRT54G.

Hope that helps........

How come my sony vaio vgc-rb52 desktop goes on but i get no signal


if you are referring to the signal strength of your wireless internet, first try to turn off both devices your laptop and your wireless modem or router. Now if you have a portable usb broadband connection and the signal is showing weak or no signal at all call your internet provider so they can check if they have any server issues.

Hi there.
You hit the nail right on the head!! desktops don't come wireless enabled so you will need a wireless card installed into it.
I recommend a wireless PCI card as a Dongle are not that good and can be easily broken.

Good luck and thanks for using FixYa!!

Can't get internet connection to my lap top.ps i have a desk top.


Is your laptop wireless adapter correctly configured? It may be set to only recieve certain types of signals (802.11b, when you may beed 802.11g etc), so check if the configuration of the laptop matches the configuration of the router.

To test if the laptop can get internet at all, try to get to a wired internet line (your wireless router may have some Ethernet ports on the back; laptops usually have Ethernet connectivity), just incase your laptop is set to block all internet signals coming in.

Hope this helps!

Yes, adding a repeater closer to the laptop will repeat or boost the signal so you get a better signal. You can also try replacing the standard antennas with better ones.
