You need a PCMCIA wireless card in the laptop to connect to your ACCESS POINT to communicate with the Internet and your "home" networked computers.

How to connect my Acer Extensa 367T wirelessly


You can use your USB port to install a wireless "stick" i call it or it should have a built in wireless modem. Take it to you to Best Buy or Staples and they will have what you need especially if you already have wireless service coming into your home. God Bless and Best of Luck!!

Can't connect to the internet through wireless on my daughter's acer laptop


Your daughter's wireless card in her laptop needs to be configured with the router's wireless settings eg. the SSID and encryption key
The encryption key in your wireless router, without this key the wireless router won't allow the laptop to connect to this wireless router.
The WEP, WPA, WPA2 encryption key is in your router's wireless settings. Log into your router and got to the wireless settings, you will need to get the SSID and the encryption key. Then go to your laptop's wireless card and configure it with the router's SSID and encryption key, so it will then connect to the wireless router and the Internet.

I have an HP Pavilion dv4. The wireless connection disables when the computer is bumped or moved. Also, the computer will freeze up and shut down when it is bumped. I read a forum that said to go into...


Sounds that the wireless adapter daughter board is either loose or failing. First, we need to make sure it is making good contact with the laptop's motherboard. In order to do this, we have to do the following:
1. Turn off the laptop & remove the battery.
2. Look at the compartments in the bottom of the laptop. You should be able to see 2 or 3 areas with small rectangular plates covering them. These plates usually have one or 2 screws holding them in place.
3. Check which one of those plates is the one which covers the wireless adapter daughter board. When you find it unscrew its screws & remove it.
4. Below the plate, there will be a small daughter board screwed to the laptop's motherboard, with 2 thin wires attached to it (usually one black wire & the other is a white wire). Gently, remove both wires using a small flat screw driver to pull them out gently. Don't forget to note down which wire connects to which connection point.
5. Unscrew the wireless adapter daughter board & remove it from its slot.
6. Clean both the slot & the daughter board's terminal connectors using a dry electric contact cleaner. You can purchase it at an electronics store.
7. Leave the slot & the daughter board for a while to dry.
8. Re-place the daughter board back in the slot & screw it to the motherboard.
9. Reconnect the 2 wires.
10. Screw back the covering plate.
11. Put back the battery & turn on the laptop. Check if the problem was fixed.

If this did not fix the problem, you will need to repeat the steps to remove the wireless adapter daughter board & replace it with a new one.

I have installed Belkin N router onto my computer, however my laptop is not pickin the signal up and I cannot connect to the internet on the laptop just the computer


If you do not have an 'N' compatible wireless adapter in your laptop, make sure you set the Belkin to 'B/G' compatability mode. Also, the type of security if an older laptop is probably limmited to WPA-PSK, and you would need to set that up in the router as well. Extremely old laptop wireless adapters may be limmited to WEP, which is an old an unreliable security encryption.

My daughter has an old Dell Inspiron and it works great with a Belkon router but when they got the netgear wireless router she gets a blue screen. What do I do?


Need to check for driver compatibility for the Netgear router . Contact Netgear for backwards compatibility or purchase a router that will be compatible with your PC.

Ok, my previous question was answered about hp pavilion zx5000


Hi,

You need to check whether it has compatibility with that router or not?

if yes, you need to make sure the operating system would meet all requirements...

Note - I am assuming that you have an inbuilt modem for wireless connectivity.

Check with vendor or router company if have any issues before you purchase.

Thanks for using "Fixya".
