    Thanks Gromley

    Have tried what you suggested but still get pending and the icon at the bottom with the little cross on it. The first dialogue box I get says connection then the name of my SSID, then status setting uo interface, this then changes to pending and as I type this (on another computer) it is still pending. Any further advice?

    Many thanks

If you have you network up and running and connected, then on taskbar on the right at the bottom of the screen...... you should have a wireless connection icon like one computer icon, right click on this choose .....view available networks and then make sure yours is choosen.....then click connect the first time you may have to put your ssid or pass phrase in again.....once that done it should say aquiring network address or connected.
i hope this helped if not let me know.

How to connect to always automatically connect to your SSID

Ever turn on your computer and try to connect to the internet? Ever see all the many SSIDs in your neighborhood listed in your wireless radar or your "Windows Wireless Connection". Then you'd scroll down to double click on your SSID so that you can connect to the internet. Imagine doing this everytime you have to connect to the internet. Wouldn't that be annoying?

The Objective
The objective of this Tip/How-To is to have you turn on your computer and connect to the internet automatically via your SSID (Wireless Network Name). Hence, you wouldn't need to manually find your SSID everytime you need to connect to the internet.


Pre-requisites or Must haves for this Tip to work
  1. A computer with a wireless adapter
  2. A wireless router
  3. An active internet service
  4. This tip is designed for Windows XP. I will post one up for Windows Vista and Windows 7.
  5. This tip is designed to work with Wireless Networks (SSID) that do not have any passwords or encryption.

Active Tip Dictionary (throughout this TIP)
is the technical term for your broadcasted network name. This is basically what you will see listed in your WIRELESS NETWORK CONNECTIONS manager.

To make your computer connect automatically to the internet via your SSID, we will need to manually tell your computer to connect to your SSID and then we will need to save this setting so that your computer will automatically connect to your SSID everytime you turn on your computer.

Let's Begin.
Start your computer by turning it on.

Click on your Start Button.

Move your mouse over to Control Panel and then left click on it.

Double click on the Network Connections icon.

Double click on Wireless Connection. Now in the picture above you see Wireless Connection 3 but on your screen you should see Wireless Connection.


Now click on Properties.

Click on the Wireless Networks Tab.

Now scroll up and down under Preferred networks until you find your Wireless Network Name (SSID). For me, it's called linksys therefore I will select linksys.

Now click on Properties.

Now click on the Connection tab.

Under Automatic connection, click to check "Connect when this network is in range". This will tell your computer to connect automatically to your Wireless Network Name (SSID).

Click OK to save this setting.

Click OK again to get out of the Properties window.

Click OK again to get out of the Wireless Connections window.

Then click Close to close out of the Wireless Connections window.

And there you have it, you have setup to automatically connect to your Wireless Network (SSID) everytime you turn on your computer.

Now restart your computer and give it a few seconds, and voila, you are automatically connecting to your Wireless Network (SSID). Now you can surf the internet. You can set this on all your computers at home that have a wireless card.

Remember to give me a good rating and vote for me. If you require further tips and tricks, feel free to contact me through the contact box. I will post up your tip.

I have a 4420 falcon and it works only when the usb cable is connected to te computer in other words, the internet doesn't function when i disconnect it from the stand that has the cable connected to it....

I presume the PC you connect to has an internet connection. If so this is normal behaviour. When you connect to a PC via a USB cable and ActiveSync the connection is given an IP address via the host PC. If under the ActiveSync settings you are allowing the connected device to use the host PC's internet connection then the 4420 has access to the internet. simpuls.

To get a connection to the internet you would require a different connection, i.e. wireless.

You would also need a wireless access point or wireless router. Set the SSID and encryption on the wireless device and match it on the 4420.

Hope this helps.

If you need any more help then please do not hesitate to contact us:-

Netgear WGR814v2 does not see my ASUS 1005HA-P netbook, but the netbook sees the the Netgear wireless network but cannot connect .

To connect into your own Netgear router, you need to configure the wireless card with your router's wireless configuration settings, eg.the SSID and encryption settings. Check your router manual on how to configure the router or go to the Netgear WEB site to download this info.
To configure the Netgear router for wireless you need to connect a LAN cable from the laptop to the router and run your browser with the configuration IP address. for Netgear type the URL address ;-
the login = admin PW = password
Then configure the SSID and encryption, record this info so you can configure the wireless card with the same settings.

You can also connect to the Internet by using a LAN cable and plug it into the Netgear router without a wireless connection.

Wireless Adaptor Issue

First make sure that your wireless router is set to broadcast (or if you prefer not to broadcast) your SSID (your wireless network name) or that your laptop wireless network connection properties is set-up to "Connect even if this network is not broadcasting".

To check this go to:

Click Start> Connect to>Show all connections>
Right click your Wireless Connection and select properties>
On the Properties box select "Wireless Network" tab >
Go to "Preferred networks" then highlight your SSID (network name)
Click "properties" button check "connect even if this network is not broadcasting". (while youre here check that your "Wireless network key" confgurations are correct).

Make sure that you are also set-up to "Obtain an IP Address automatically " and "Obtain DNS server address automatically"

To check:

Click Start> Connect to>Show all connections>
Right click your Wireless Connection and select properties>
Select "General" and under the heading "This connection uses the following items">
Highlight "Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) then click "Properties" button

Linksys wireless card with ASUS WL520g Router - encryption error

you have changed the network key, but why update the username and password as it should always be the same which is the one supplied to you to connect to your service providers connection, assuming you mean the security key, go to your pc and search for your network again, as it will be trying to connect to a non existant unsecured router. When it searches and finds the networks in your area, choose yours click connect and the enter password window should pop up to be entered. Go to your browser and clear old temp files and cookies in tools, internet options, restart pc and you should assuming you have put the correct settings in be online.

Can't connect to internet

The issue could be with the wifi connection that your wifi adapter is connected to. If your running a windows based system, go to the system tray and right click on your wifi connection symbol (SSID) and see which network your connected to. Every LAN has its own unique name of their Local area network (LAN), if its not displaying your LAN SSID name but a different SSID name then thats the problem. If thats the case, then once again right click on the wifi connection symbol in the system tray and change the wifi connection to your SSID for "view available connection". Your wifi adapter could be picking up a wifi connection in your area and you do not have access to their LAN.
