I have a Gateway notebook and you turn wireless on by pushing fn and f2 at which point a light comes on indicating that wireless is enabled. All of a sudden it does not work. I can push buttons until my fingers fall off but light does not come on and wireless networks can not be detected. Anyone know what this is?

There are dozens of possibilities. We need details. Desktop or laptop? Has it ever worked? Make and model of wireless router? *What* doesn't work - what happens? Be exact. "Something like" is no information at all when it comes to computers.

Wireless adapter not working


Network Key (WEP, WPA, WPA2 Encryption key)To connectyour computer to a wireless router, you click the Refresh networklist, then Choose your wireless network and then click Connectto your secured Wireless Network, it will asks for a Network Keybefore allowing you to connect into your wireless network. This NetworkKey is either the WEP, or WPA or WPA2 Encryption key that is used toconfigure the Wireless Router. The Passphrase is an alternate way tosetup the Encryption key.
When you are requested for a Network Key, you can just enter the Passphrasethat was used to configure the Encryption key in the wireless router.http://www.fixya.com/support/r5270415-network_password_network_addressFor information on securing your wireless network,configuring the wireless router and configuring the wireless card in thelaptop/computer, please click on this link and follow my instructions :-http://www.fixya.com/support/r3559128-wireless_router_security

Will it work with wireless broadband


Most desktop's don't have wireless adapters built in..so yes.

I recommend a PCI wifi adapter if you're far from the router...otherwise a simple usb wireless adapter is usually good enough to get the job done.

Internet setup


few things you can try:
1. check to make sure you're getting an IP address.
2. try reloading the wireless card driver.
3. is you wireless static or dynamic? If dynamic, try configuring it with static setting.
4. If this don't work, try the wireless card on a different slot.
5. if don't work, try on a different PC to see if wireless card is working or not.
It's possible you have a bad wireless card.
good luck!!

TOSHIBA EQUIUM WIRELESS PROBLEM


You might deleted your driver to wireless connection or you perhaps upgraded Service Pack to higher version. If your wireless connection will work on lower SP then that device won't work or vice versa.
Another thing, try to check connections. Click menu and look for connections and try to enable wireless connections.

Thanks

I have a 2006 compact computer and the button of the wireless is not working can i use a wireless card


Hi aneleyesc26 -
You can always use a wireless card instead of using the integrated wireless that is built into the computer. That could be a good solution for you as a workaround to get wireless working again if you choose not to fix the wireless button problem.

Hope that helps

Did you see the wireless signal or your network status in the computer with the wireless adaptor?
If yes, select your wireless network and connect your device.

If no, check the status of your wireless card first
My PC >> Properties >> Hardware >> Device Manager >> Network

If the wireless is marked ( ! ) Install the right driver for your wireless card

If ok, try to set up your wireless connection with windows wireless utility instead of HP utility.
(if necesary uninstall HP utility)

If the firewall can't be fixed this issue is related to your antivirus that it is blocking the setting.

Let me know how it is going...

I have a acer travelmate 3000 laptop and cant get my wireless to work, if i plug in a new wirless usb stick it works fine but i wont the internal wireless to work, does this mean my internal wireless card...


Odds are pretty good the wireless is not enabled.

If you look at page three item three of the manual, it shows the button/indicator on the front of the system to enable wireless.

CANT GET WIRELESS MOUSE TO WORK


Try changing with a new set of batteries. also try to reset the connection of the wireless mouse and keyboard. you can locate a connect button on both the reciever and wireless keyboard. press both of them together and release them. this would reset the connection. try doing the same for reciever and wireless mouse connect buttons. this should work. also check for any possible alignment issues.
