DOESN'T DETECT WIFI


The wireless feature on a Gateway computer allows you to connect to a network without the hassle of cables. This allows you to browse the Internet conveniently wherever you are. Gateway computers rely on Windows operating systems, which come with a built-in feature to manage your wireless connection. This feature makes turning off your wireless connection an easy process if, for a moment, you prefer to connect to the Internet using a wired connection.

Click the Windows "Start" menu and click the "Control Panel." Click Network and Internet Connections > Network Connection, if you are using a Windows XP Gateway computer. You should see your wireless connection. For Windows Vista and 7 Gateway computers, click "Network and Sharing Center" from the Control Panel and click "Manage Wireless Connections." You should see your wireless connection. Right-click your wireless connection and click "Disable" to turn it off. Close "Network Connections" when you are done.

Hi,


It seems you're setting up a wireless network thru your router. The basic steps in setting-up a wireless connection applies to all brands of routers. Most softwares provided by manufacturers, both computers and routers, cause problems with Windows due to incompatibility issues. As of the moment, we need to use the Wireless Zero Configuration or the Windows Wireless Manager that comes with all versions of Windows.


Click the link below for proper cable connections in setting up your wireless network. This also provides somewhat a checklist on what you need for wireless connectivity.

http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/using/networking/setup/wireless.mspx


Then, configure your wireless connection. The following links provides the step by step instructions for each version of Windows:

Windows XP. http://www.microsoft.com/resources/documentation/windows/xp/all/proddocs/en-us/wlan_client_configure.mspx?mfr=true

Windows Vista. http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows-vista/Setting-up-a-wireless-network

Windows 7. http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows7/Setting-up-a-wireless-network

Windows cannot connect to the wireless network


I would remove old cache wireless network connections. Example is when you once connect to a free wireless access at Library or Coffee Shop. Windows save all of these profiles and this will cause problems connecting. Then use Microsoft Wireless Troubleshooting resource:

How do you connect WIndows Vista to Windows 7 through ADHOC?


Wireless Adapter is a device that will receive the wireless signals and will make your computer wireless adapter. without the wireless adapter you can not use the computer to connect to the wireless network. Now a days all the laptops and desktops are equipped with the built in wireless adapters.
First check whether you have a wireless adapter on your computer ?

WIN VISTA/ Windows 7
Click START ==> Control Panel ==> In the right hand side at the top you will see " Classic View "
Switch to classic view ==> you will see Device Manager ==> Under Network Adapters you will find your wireless adapter listed . Right clink on the wireless adapter ==> properties => Check whether it says the Device is working properly or not ? If it says working properly then that's great !

If you do not see wireless adapter in the Device manager , then either you do not have the adapter or the wireless adapter is not working .If you see "yellow exclamation mark" on the wireless adapter, that means the drivers are not installed for the adapter or not working. Reinstall the drivers.
Once your adapter is working properly , try to connect to the wireless network.

If you are installing the external wireless adapter to the computer and if you are using Windows 2000 or Windows 98 , ME, then you will have to connect to the wireless network using the utility of that adapter.
If you are using Win XP then you can use windows to connect to the wireless network or you can use other utility.
In case of Win VISTA, you will use windows to connect to the wireless network.

I have a Compaq PC with Windows XP and the flat I've moved into has wireless broadband - how do I connect to it?


You can use a wireless network to share Internet access, files, printers, and more. Or you can use it to surf the Web while you're sitting on your couch or in your yard. Plus, it's easier to install than you think.
There are 4 steps to creating a wireless network:
1.
Choose your wireless equipment
2.
Connect your wireless router
3.
Configure your wireless router
4.
Connect your computers
For Windows XP users, Windows XP Service Pack 2 is not required for wireless networking, but it does make things much easier. Service Pack 2 also helps protect you against hackers, worms, and other Internet intruders.

Connect your computers
If your computer does not have wireless network support built in, plug your network adapter into your USB port, and place the antenna on top of your computer (in the case of a desktop computer), or insert the network adapter into an empty PC card slot (in the case of a laptop). Windows XP will automatically detect the new adapter, and may prompt you to insert the CD that came with your adapter. The on-screen instructions will guide you through the configuration process.
Note: The steps below only apply if you're using Windows XP Service Pack 2. If you're running Windows XP and you don't have Service Pack 2 yet, plug your computer into your wireless router and download and install Windows XP Service Pack 2.
Windows XP should show an icon with a notification that says it has found a wireless network.
wireless_connected.gifFollow these steps to connect your computer to your wireless network:
1.
Right-click the wireless network icon in the lower-right corner of your screen, and then click View Available Wireless Networks. If you run into any problems, consult the documentation that came with your network adapter. Don't be afraid to call their tech support.
2.
The Wireless Network Connection window should appear and you should see your wireless network listed with the network name you chose. If you don't see your network, click Refresh network list in the upper-left corner. Click your network, and then click Connect in the lower-right corner.
wireless_chooseconnection.gif 3.
Windows XP prompts you to enter a key. Type the encryption key that you wrote down earlier in both the Network key and Confirm network key boxes, and then click Connect.
4.
Windows XP will show its progress as it connects to your network. After you're connected, you can now close the Wireless Network Connection window. You're done.
Note: If the Wireless Network Connection window continues to show Acquiring Network Address, you may have mistyped the encryption key.

Laptop Wireless Connection Problem


I have previous experience with this wireless connections. I'm not familiar with AT T GSM device. In my experience I found that the manager can play up, but you can switch to windows manager depending on what windows you have. In Windows XP go to your control panel. Click on network connections, then select the wireless network connection. On the screen a window with the network connections should appear. Then on the left hand side down the bottom it will have Change advanced settings, and click on that. Then another screen appears with Wireless Network Connection Properties. Click on Tab Wireless Networks. On that page click on "Use Windows to Configure my wireless network". Once done, click okay or apply if appears. Restart computer and see if windows picks up you wireless connection provided you have WIFI on your laptop! Try that, let me know if you need more help!
