Lost Wireless Internet Connection

Hello,

This problem just started last week on my daughter's laptop. When she unplugs her laptop, she loses her wireless internet connection. I checked the antennae, and the lights are on (orange and green). I also tried the repair connection option by right-clicking on the wireless icon at the bottom of the screen, but no luck. In fact, when I right-click to open the icon it says there are no wireless connections in the area.

I have the exact same laptop, I purchased them together. I haven't had a single problem with the wireless internet.

The operating system is XP. I don't have the laptop in front of me, as I'm at work and the laptop is at home. I was looking for suggestions I could try when I get home.

Thanks in advance for your help!

Samsung NC10 will not connect to any network


If WLAN and Wireless cards are enabled, then you may have to unplug your router for 10 seconds to reset it. They tend to build up a static charge. Unplug wireless router for 10 seconds, plug back in and you should be fine in a minute or two with full connectivity

Router causing internet connection to fail intermittently


Hello,
There are a few things can make your wireless router to lose your connection. I like to start with the most simple things first. First clear Out any clutter on your browser. If your are using Internet explorer, go to tools click delete browsing history. When the box appears, clear out the first 3 things. History, Cookies, and temporary Internet files. Firefox, you click on tools, clear private internet files.
After than do a disk cleanup.
In start menu, go to all programs, accessories,system tools and select disk clean up. After this unplug Cable modem's electric cord, unplug the power to your wireless router, leave it unplugged for a couple of minutes, Then plug in your modem,router and restart your pc in that order. If that doesn't work you can always change you network name and WEP key, Hope this helps, also I was assuming you are using a PC and not Mac.

Internet connection


Well, unfortunately, the only people who can help you with this are either your network providers (most likely) or your router manufacturer, as the system settings are specific to the network and/or router ..

Firstly try the Off Line option, sometimes this can be ticked. Or go into the Netword Card settings and try to force the speed to auto config, this will enable different speed connections
