Vista or XP? XP is the easiest. Click on the Wireless icon in the lower right. click on advance settings>wireless networks and remove all the preferred networks or just the one you wanted to sign in to in that box. VIOLA! start again.
VISTA a little harder. right click on the wireless icon. click networks and settings. in the left side bar click manage networks. Find your network device and right click properties. Security tab to change the password settings.

Put in wrong password on the phone too many times, now i cant log in to my google acct on it either, its just stuck at the same spot


What Brand and Type of phone ??..
Phone password or google account password ??..
Im thinking iphone ?
Although a passcode limits your iPhone to authorized use only, protecting your vital personal information, if you forget it, you can't use your phone until you enter the correct code or revert your phone to the default factory status.
Apple provides ways to resolve a forgotten passcode problem and improve the iPhone's security.

Wrong Passcode

When you enable iPhone passcode security, the phone requires you to enter the code to display the home screen.
By default, when this protection feature is enabled, you'll be prompted to enter the passcode to turn on or restart the iPhone, wake it or unlock the screen.
When you enter the wrong passcode, the "Wrong Passcode try again" message appears onscreen.
If you enter the incorrect code too many times, the iPhone will lock automatically and display the "iPhone is disabled, try again in 1 minute" message.
This disabling security feature is designed to protect it from unauthorized tampering.
If you keep entering the incorrect code, the iPhone will be disabled for a longer time.

Restoring iPhone
If you don't remember your passcode, unfortunately, there is no way to retrieve it.
Apple says that the only way to solve passcode problems is to restore the iPhone with iTunes.
Before restoring the phone, downloading and installing the latest version of iTunes will improve connection and decrease the chances of errors.
Unfortunately, restoring the iPhone erases saved content and clears custom settings, so create a backup copy of your files with iTunes before proceeding.
From there, you can restore your iPhone by clicking the "Restore" button on the device's "Summary" tab in iTunes.
When the process completes, you can change the passcode settings.



Changing Passcode Settings
iPhone allows you to not only create a new passcode, but specify the amount of time it should take before the screen locks after inactivity.
You can also specify whether you want to use a simple four-digit passcode or a longer one that can include letters and numbers.
Tapping the "Settings" icon on the home screen will bring up the phone's settings.
From there, tapping "General" and then tapping "Passcode Lock" will bring up the "Passcode Lock" customization screen.
Select the settings you want to use to protect your iPhone. The changes will take effect immediately or when the iPhone turns off.

Tips

After restoring your iPhone, create a passcode you'll remember easily.
While creating a longer passcode can increase the security on your phone, you can forget it easily if you don't write it down and store it in a safe place.
gmail password reset
Open the Web browser on your phone and navigate to gmail.com.
Tap "Can't access your account" located under the "Sign in" button.
Select "I forgot my password" and then click "Reset your password here."
Type your email into the "Email" text box and then type the random captcha into the captcha text box.
An email with your new Gmail password will be sent to your alternate Gmail address.
Follow the directions in the email to reset your password.
Type the new Gmail password into the loin screen on your Droid to unlock the account.

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 can i setup a wireless connection on my laptop


Hi,

Depending on the model etc of your laptop, some have built in wireless adapters others don't so you need to buy a wireless adapter card so that you are able to connect to the internet.

Also you will need a network which has wireless built in if at home for you to connect to the internet, through the wireless adapter on your laptop.

Hope this helps, let me know if you need more information.

Thanks

Cant connect to the internet with my wifi


If your computer finds a wireless connection in your house, and still won't connect, you probably need to enter the WPA or WEP codes to get through.

Check with your modem or router instructions for finding this code.

If you're just trying to connect on the fly, chances are most wireless points are secured, so if you don't have their access codes, you won't be able to connect.

And, of course, check to make sure your wireless function is even working. I had a laptop that said the port was fine, and I couldn't get it to connect. The wireless antenna inside the computer was bad, and too expensive to fix - so you'll need a wireless PCMCIA network card.

I have aspire 9301awsm cant go wireless what am i doing wrong im not very good with computers just starting to learn


hmm a very open problem, could be here for days without detail :)

the most basic and common problems are:
(try these starting from the top)
* The firewall is incorrectly set, causing the firewall to reject the wireless infomation sent to the computer, reconfigure/reinstall a firewall

*you are too far away from the router if it keeps disconnecting, try moving closer.

*make sure the connection settings are set to automatic, right cick the wireless icon on the startbar, select status, select properties, scroll to internet protocol, then select properties. all the settings on this screen should be set to:
"Obtain ______________ Automatically"

* if the laptop name claims to have came with wireless built in, try checking the uniqe specification to that specific laptop, as my Acer Travelmate 2300 claims to have wireless built in, but i do not have it.

If none of these work id be happy to create another list :)
