The easiest way in Vista is to go to control panel>network and sharing centre and see if network discovery is ticked green.

If not on top left of window is connect to a network, then see if your wireless connection is listed, if so click connect, if not at the bottom of the window, click set up a connection or network and follow the wizard.

Assuming you have a wireless router set up correctly and you have your wireless adapter switched on of course!

My daughter just got a hp mini110 and im trying to figure out how to put the kaspersky into the computer when it dosent have a cd thing! do i have to connect it to my hp laptop?


If you are not having CD drive then don't worry you can install kasper sky without it.
First copy the setup of your anti virus to a pen drive and then connect it to your laptop.
Then install kasper sky from the pen drive which you have already connected. Now you are done .

Thanks.
Have a great day.

Wireless adapter keeps conflicting with other wireless networks in my area, it will connect to my network then disconnects and tries connecting to another.


If you have a wireless hub it allows you to use both computers online at the same time frirstly. Also if you have a cordless phone it can also interfer and disconnect you.

Sounds like the drivers are conflicting with windows, need to start again at the beginning. Now you will need to reinstall you wireless sky connection, you will need to reload the cd. If you are using windows vista you will need to run the setup file as an administrator. With Vista you need to allow everything through the Administrator in order to load successfully all drivers.
Open your My Computer or Computer and right click on your CD ROM and click on Explore. Then find a setup file and right click on it and click on run as Administrator. When it runs it will ask you to except and allow your installation. Follow on screen instructions and restart computer. Try connecting and see if problem still exists. Please post me if still no success!

Broadcom will only work if your laptop actually has a wireless receiver built in to it. If it does not, you need to purchase a new card for the slot. Some laptops ship with a default instruction book for all its laptops, but not all laptops have built in wireless receiver. If you are sure it does, look for a wirelss on off switch on your laptop, usually at the front or either side of the laptop shell.

You need to go into your router settings via a web browser, possibly http://192.168.0.1 or http://192.168.1.1 your manual will confirm which address is correct.
If you have forgotten your passphrase you will need to set another one and then change all the computers which connect to it so they all have the same passphrase.
