Hi louanne,

If your modem/router was provided by your internet service provider (ISP) you may check the configuration with them. Your modem/router wireless capabilities can be disabled by accessing the device. You should be able to get the IP address, default gateway and the username and the administrator password. Your computer should be hardwire to the modem to get the ip address or the default gateway.

regards,

jeff

Enable wireless capability


Certain models of Acer desktop computers are designed with wireless capabilities.
These capabilities can be added to an Acer desktop system that does not connect wirelessly with either an internal or external wireless card, depending on the computer's configuration.
When the wireless connection is not working properly, you can troubleshoot the issue yourself.
The troubleshooting process eliminates the problems that may be preventing the Acer desktop computer from connecting wirelessly.

Check to see if any other computers at the same location are able to connect wirelessly.
The issue may reside with the wireless router or access point.
Power cycling the router or access point may resolve this issue.
Verify that the wireless adapter is enabled.
Click the "Start" button, then "Control Panel."
Click "Network and Sharing Center," then "Change Adapter Settings."
If the wireless adapter is disabled, right-click on it and select "Enable."
Connect to the proper wireless network.
The Acer may be attempting to the connect to the wrong wireless network, or it may have lost its connection to the correct network.
Click the wireless network icon in the task bar.
Click the proper wireless network, then click "Connect."
Enter the network password (or WEP key) if prompted.

I have suddenly lost the wireless connectionon my dv4 notebook. it tells me no network connection is detected. I have tried turning off the modem and router, waiting a bit and then turning it back on but...


Loosing wireless network in HP is very common. They often loose network when they are overheated. The point that is to be noted when it looses the wireless network is, it automatically disables the wireless network adapter. When you right click and select enable, it wont work. You need to restart your system in order to enable it. I myself faced same problem.
But when i updated the WiFi driver from HP support and driver site, the problem disappeared.

hope this will help....cheers:)

Compaq SR1720NZ to wireless?


i believe the simplest way to do this is to buy a external USB wireless adaptor for your computer. thats saying that your dsl modem has a wireless signal being broadcasted already . if you dont have wireless built into your DSL or Cable modem, you will also need a wireless capable router to send it to your computer...
keep in mind that the wireless external network adapter could easily be used with ANY computer to connect wirelessly, so it's not limmitted to just your current hardware.

Wireless adapter


Go for an external USB wireless adapter, and the speed may vary depending on barriers and the distance from the router, the max. distance is about 30 ft from the router.
Tell me if anything else you want to know abt the wireless connection?

I have a new laptop that i am trying to connect to a wireless connection. I have a speedtouch modem which has a dsl line


Your modem must first have wireless capability. If not, you need to buy a wireless router which you need to connect to the modem. Once you've done that, you can actually call the manufacturer of the router so they can walk you through setting up the wireless connection.

D-link router DI524 using next G external wireless modem


You can purchase a usb wireless dongle and attach to the PC. From then onwards you can set up a wireless network without connecting the usb cable for the router. The dongle will enable wireless capabilities on the pc. The only thing left is to have all devices running in the same workgroup.
