No wireless


If there is no wireless and there is a wireless network card built into the PC then, the following will be issue

1. The card has been switched off by the switch either on the case or keyboard, consult the manual for the actual location and switch back on

2. There is an issue with the wireless drivers reinstall them from the install disks, you may have to make these from included progam if you have not done so already.

3 The card has been disabled in BIOS go to BIOS and re-enable

4. The card component of the main board had become faulty go and buy a replacement USB wireless card.

Wireless not working

Hi, Sometimes the wireless startup can become disabled. Try this to see if you can force your wireless connection to startup:

Type: "services.msc" (without quotes)
Click: Wireless Zero Configuration
Click: "Start" (without quotes)

Also, make sure that you have the most recent driver for your network adapter. Go to the manufacturer's website to check.

Good Luck!

We have an Advent 7088 laptop and want to connect it to wireless router. We thought a wireless facility was already installed in the 7088 but when we try the wireless on/off button nothing happens. What...

Try this: I found it after doing some searching on the web.

Wireless card stops working after upgrading to Windows Vista
After upgrading to Windows Vista everything works fine apart the Marvell Wireless card, when you press the button nothing happens.
There seems to be three different ways of solving this problem (there is a fourth - don't install Vista) and I've listed them below, hopefully at least one should work for you.
The first solution is to press the wireless button while Windows Vista is loading, you have to be quick though as it only works if you press the button between the loading scrolling lines logo (after the post screen) and before the windows logo appears.
The second is to go into Device Manager, select the Marvell Wireless card and then go to Properties>Advanced>Default Adhoc Mode. Here change the Default Adhoc mode to B or G. When you confirm the change the wireless connection should become active, if it doesn't then press the wireless button and try changing the setting again.
The third method is to create a desktop shortcut to the wireless adapter. Go to [Network and Sharing Centre]>[Manage Network Connections] and then right click the wirless connection and choose Create Shortcut. You can then switch on the wireless at any time, just point at the shortcut then right click and chose Disable. Once its disabled right click on the shortcut again and choose Enable. It should then connect within 20-30 seconds.

Wireless keyboard and mouse freeze and become completely inoperab

Its probably a compatibility issue with the hardware. The best is to use cabled mouse and keyboard.

Someone is getting into my computer using my wireless system. How can I block my wireless so no one can use my internet? How can I secure it?

they way you do it depends on the wireless access point (router) you have in your home. look for the router manual as you will need this information to get into the specific configuration.

in esence you need to the following:

1. go to your router configuration page. (check your router manual for details on how to this)
2. set an administrator password for your router so only you get access to the configuration page.
3. change the default name for your access point or even better hide it. (set it so it's not broadcasted by the router)
4. setup wireless security (depending on your router your options are wep, wap and wpa2.. set it to wpa2 if possible) this is how your connections its encripted so it's evesdropping becomes difficult or not worthy if someone were to try hard. (now days almost everything is possible with the right tools).
5. make a note of you ssid (name for your access point) and your passphrase.
6. configure your wireless systems to access the access point (router) using the new ssid and the passphrase you configured.

post your name and model of your router and I'll help you getting the manual you need.

How do my window XP laptop become completely wireless? Do I unconnect the blue cord from my computer?

You can only become wireless if you have a wireless card installed/ if you do you don't need to hardwire it

Broadcom will only work if your laptop actually has a wireless receiver built in to it. If it does not, you need to purchase a new card for the slot. Some laptops ship with a default instruction book for all its laptops, but not all laptops have built in wireless receiver. If you are sure it does, look for a wirelss on off switch on your laptop, usually at the front or either side of the laptop shell.

When using the Belkin G router the network connection becomes lost and can not get on the internet. My computer has Vista on it and Belkin says that the router is compatible with the program.

This is possibly caused by your firewall or the wireless security (wpa/wep) on the router if you have set it up.
First of all, if you can connect to the internet via a cabled connection the problem is going to be with the way you've set the router up.
If you've setup wireless security on the router, have you also set it up for your wireless adaptor?.
I suggest you try to connect to the internet via cable to start with, if this works try to connect wirelessly with your firewall off.
If all else fails start from the beginning again.
