In my ibm access my wireless networking is greyed out


When the icon is greyed out ... it usually mean it is NOT available / active (usable). In your case, it's likely your Notebook is not connected to the wireless. Try to "Connect" to the wireless first . If the wireless network is "protected", it may require a password before allowing you to access it.

Wireless Network Security II


We browse the internet and have far fetching concerns of how secure our connection is, especially when its wireless. Here are a few pointers:

The security concerns with wireless network centre around :

Unauthorized access

Eavesdropping

The authentication component (pre-shared keys) of schemes such as WPA and WEP, as well as MAC address filtering, address the issue of restricting access to the wireless network to only authorized devices.

Encryption address the issue of protecting against eavesdropping on the wireless network traffic.

If you turn off WPA (or similar scheme), you are turning off an access control method as well as an encryption method. The wireless network traffic can then be easily eavesdropped on, and the MAC addresses and IP addresses of participating machines can be determined. These can then be spoofed, and the wireless network joined.

Turn back on WPA/WPA2.
Other way to prevent unauthorized network access are
1. Password-protect your wireless connection. Turn on WEP (wired equivalency privacy) or WPA (Wi-Fi protected access) on all of your devices, including your router, your media center. You may also set up a security key for your wireless network.
2. Place the wireless access point away from windows and near the center of your house to decrease the signal strength outside of the intended coverage area.
3. Keep all software current (including your Web browser) with automatic updates. Use firewall, antivirus, antispam, and antispyware software from a source that you trust and watch out for fake alerts for security software.

THE WIRELESS CONNECTIVITY SIGNAL STRENGTH IS VERY POOR


I don't know the make of the wireless access point that you are using. First I would unplug the wireless access point, unplug the computer, remove battery, plug in the wireless access point, it will do a self test, when it completes plug in the laptop. You may have interference in your area? Is your wireless access point secured with a passcode? You can also change channels from defaults. I am not sure why you would reformat a machine due to wireless connectivity? You could re-set the wireless access point to defaults by pressing and holding for 30 seconds the reset will return the device to defaults, of course you would have to reconfigure the SSID and security core.

Can't access wireless card


Why not? Is the wireless card inside the laptop? Have you turned the wireless switch on? The wireless switch is located on the side or in the front of the laptop.

Wi fi is on but still can't connect to the internet


Not only does Wi-Fi have to be on, but it has to be connected to a wireless access point (sometimes called a wireless router), and the wireless access point has to be properly connected to the internet.If the wireless access point/router has empty ports on it, plug your computer into one of those ports, and see if you can connect to ther internet then. If you can, the problem is somewhere between the wireless access point/router and the computer. Could be the transmitter part of the wireless router, could be the wireless network adapter on your computer, or could be the driver that runs the wireless adapter on the computer. If you cannot access the internet when you plug into the wireless ap/router, then you need to go one step "upstream." This would likely be the cable modem or DSL modem. Plug directly into that with your computer, and reboot both the modem and the computer (just unplug the power from the modem and then plug it back in to reboot the modem). If you can connect to the internet then, the problem is the wireless router/ap. If you cannot connect to the internet then, contact your ISP.

Still can't access the web


There will be no dial tone for wireless access as you do not use a dial up modem. Rather you should be seeing a signal strength indicator, usually in the lower right hand corner of your desktop. If you have purchased wireless access from your ISP you should have a wireless access point that the USB wireless adapter will receive the signal from. Follow your ISP's instructions for setting up wireless access. If your provider is Sierra Wireless here is a link to their support page. Click Here

Here is a link to the NetGear support page for the USB adapter. Click Here
