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,

To enable Internet Connection Sharing on a network connection

You must be logged on to your computer with an owner account in order to complete this procedure.
Open Network Connections. (Click Start, click Control Panel, and then double–click Network Connections.)

Click the dial–up, local area network, PPPoE, or VPN connection you want to share, and then, under Network Tasks, click Change settings of this connection.

On the Advanced tab, select the Allow other network users to connect through this computer's Internet connection check box.
If you want this connection to dial automatically when another computer on your home or small office network attempts to access external resources, select the Establish a dial–up connection whenever a computer on my network attempts to access the Internet check box.

If you want other network users to enable or disable the shared Internet connection, select the Allow other network users to control or disable the shared Internet connection check box.

Under Internet Connection Sharing, in Home networking connection, select any adapter that connects the computer sharing its Internet connection to the other computers on your network. The Home networking connection is only present when two or more network adapters are installed on the computer.

Open Internet Explorer. Click Start, point to All Programs, and then click Internet Explorer.)

Even though it does not show the connection on your monitor, the connection may still be working. Did you post this problem from the same computer? If yes, then you are fine.

I AM UNABLE TO ACCESS INTERNET THRU MY HYBRID APPLE MAC DESK TOP-


Go into network set up a shared Internet connection using ICS (Internet Connection Sharing) You can use Internet Connection Sharing (ICS) to share an Internet connection among two or more computers on a network. First, you need one computer, called the host computer, that is connected to the Internet and that has a separate connection to the other computers on your network. You enable ICS on the Internet connection. The other computers on your network then connect to the host computer, and from there to the Internet through the host computer's shared Internet connection.
If your computer is connected to a network, network policy settings might prevent you from completing these steps.
On the host computer (the computer whose Internet connection you plan to share):
  1. ?id=microsoft.windows.resources.shellexecutetopiciconClick to open Network Connections.
  2. Right-click the connection that you want to share, and then click Properties.getcontent.aspx?assetid=18abb370-ac1e-4b6b-b663-e028a75bf05b&documentset=en-us&renderkey=signed1 If you are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.
  3. Click the Sharing tab, and then select the Allow other network users to connect through this computer’s Internet connection check box.

Hi there,

This normally means that you wireless network has found a network to connect to but it cannot assign anetwork adress because the network you have connect to is security enabled. U need to find our the password or get the network administrator to give you asscess to that particular network. Or you look at another network to connect to.

Hello,

If it says "Working Offline" in the corner. You just need to un-check that feature.

To do this, open Internet explorer and either click File in the top left corner or Tools in the upper right. Then click the option "Work Offline" so that it it not checked.

After that, verify that you have the browser set to use a LAN connection by clicking Tools > Internet Options > Connections and then choose "Never Dial a Connection" then choose OK. Then you will need to close and reopen the browser.

That should allow you surf web pages again.

Thanks

You need to contact your Internet provider for that one. You can try the following first though.

Unplug both you Router and your Internet box for a couple of minutes. Then plug them back up to see if that helps. Also try to plug a computer directly to the Internet connection without the router in line and see if that works. This is the process that your Internet company will have you go through. If you do not have a connection without your router; tell them what you have do so you can skip those steps with them. They might have an outage in your area or your Internet box could be bad.

Is your wired network working? Both should be out at the same time. If the wired connection is working; you have problems with your wireless connection only. If you do not get it solved; let me know what you have tried.

I can't fix this for you, but if I helped you get it fixed, please rate it as a fixya not a helpful rating. These ratings let me be allowed to help you and others in the future.

Wont sign on to internet


Is the computer recognizing the connection to the network?  Does the home network use DHCP?  How do you have the network setup?  Does this connection work with a different computer?  Try pinging any other computer on the network, and try pinging a website.
