Samsung R60 plus - not connecting to wireless network
I'm trying to find our new bt hub with my computer but it keeps saying it can see I have a wirelss connection but it's unable to connect. I'm unable to see any wireless networks on my computer although I have used it previously. I've tried to load the disc but it still won't pick anything up any suggestions on how I can resolve this please.

Have you tried going to device manager in the control panel find your wireless adapter driver and click on update driver? hopefully this will then find a driver update if not you could try the manufacturers web site for the latest driver.
I don't know the make. model, of laptop or your OS? Open network connections, is it enabled? Is there a Network Icon in the Tray Notification Area? You really do not need a Disk to connect. Just plug in the ethernet and boot the machine.The computer should ID the connection, if it enabled and working properly. If not open Device Manager , Network Adapters and enable the ethernet adapter.For further assistance respond to post.
NEW LAPTOP? Noticed a lot of post for same Laptop as same time.
If try to use wireless - you need to set-up wireless part of router and wireless part of laptop (Wireless Software).
Setup your network same it is on the PC.
Use Network setup wizard, if not know how in system manager, in the control panel.
Network Name is same on both, MYHOUSE is good.
The only thing different should be NAME, like SYS02,
PC would be SYS01, and IPaddress ( first 3 sections same as PC - Last section is indivual system - example follows:
PC = 192.168.1.40 then LT = 192.168.1.41
Suggest you hard wire laptop to router to verify network connection then work on wireless connection setup after you get connected thru hard line.
click on start >> go to control panel >> double click on network and internet connections >> right click on wireless network connection >> click on properties and go to wireless tab >> check the box at the top that says use windows utility >> click on ok and than right click on wireless network connection and click view available wireless networks. It will show you your network name. click and connect to your network.
Have a look around the edges of your lapto pto try and find a wireless switch, if its not there then it may be on your keyboard usually you have to press FN then another key to enable it. if its not this them it could be turned off in the BIOS or you may have a corrupt driver. Cant direct you to the exact location of the switch it will be there just have a real good search around and on the keyboard . Hope this helps
have you installewd the drivers for the modem ? if you have go to desktop and click settings got to network settings open this up it should show any connected networks if not click new connection then go throught the proceedure you can try the first internet connection if not try the advanced option for the wireless.. make sure you installed the wireless drivers as well a it wont work without these.. Good Luck A
BT is right, the fault is at your end, because you can connect to the Internet with an ethernet cable. You have lost your wireless connection with the wireless hub. This could be low signal strength (especially if the wireless access point is in one part of the house and your laptop is in another room) OR Your laptop wireless card has lost its wireless access configuration. Check your laptop wireless configuration, check your signal strength, check your SSID, check your security (WEP or WAP), Have you got MAC address filtering. Go to control panel, click on network connections, right click on Wireless Network, Click on repair (might fix your connection problem), Else right click on Status (should give you indication of how your wireless is functioning or not functioning). Check your TCP/IP settings is set for "Obtain an IP address automatically" Without more information it is difficult to identify exactly what is wrong with your connection.
