Turn on wifi


If you are trying to connect a desktop wirelessly ?
Your desktop may already enjoy a wired broadband Internet connection, but a Wi-Fi connection will afford you greater latitude in Internet use. Wires will not be necessary, so you can establish your PC in any room or area of your home or office and still stay connected to the Internet. Fortunately, you only need a wireless router, broadband modem, and ethernet cable to make this Wi-Fi connection. Disconnect your modem from the wall socket it's plugged into. Connect the ethernet cable to the back of the modem. There is a clearly marked ethernet port here. This port will appear to be an overd telephone jack. Connect the other end of the ethernet cable to the ethernet port on the back of the wireless router. This port will look exactly the same as the one on the rear of the modem. Plug the broadband modem back up to the wall socket and wait for it to power on, initialize and detect its new connection to the wireless router. Locate the manual that shipped with your wireless router. Find the URL, or web address, that is contained within the pages of this manual. This special web address is used to set up your router's network and security permissions. Also, be sure to locate the default password provided within the pages of the manual. Enter the URL into your web browser and allow the page to load. When prompted, enter the password that you found within the instruction manual. Begin setting up your new wireless network. You will be asked for an "SSID," which is just a moniker for your new network. This will be the name seen when the network is listed in an available network list. Choose whatever name you like. Select a password for your new network. While encrypting your network is optional, it is highly recommended. Along with the password, choose "WPA" security encryption. "WEP" will also be an option but it is an older security protocol that is technologically inferior to WPA. Click "Apply" to save your changes. Click on the wireless icon on the right-hand side of the bottom toolbar on your PC's desktop. Select your network's SSID from the drop-down list. Enter the password you chose for your network. You will now be connected to WiFi Internet on your PC desktop and free to browse the Web. Hope this helps.

Why can't my dell inspiron 530s desktop install


With a wireless connection, your PC can connect wirelessly to a network printer. In addition, you can set up your PC in a location where no phone line or cable connection exists. Outfitting your desktop to a wireless Internet connection is very easy. Just follow these simple steps and you'll be surfing the net wirelessly in a matter of minutes.
Find out if wireless Internet reception exists where your computer is located. If you're located very close to a W-iFi hotspot, like a coffee shop, you may be able to use this network to get wireless Internet for desktop PCs. Also, some apartment complexes and college dorms have free wireless Internet. Your neighbors may have wireless Internet too, which you can ask them if you can use. Buy a wireless network adapter for your desktop. You can obtain an adapter from most electronic stores. Be sure to get a wireless adapter with the proper strength, which depends on how far you are from the wireless hotspot. The easiest adapters to install are those that just plug into an available USB port. Set up your wireless Internet for your desktop PC according to the instructions that came with the wireless adapter. The usual procedure is to plug the wireless adapter into an available USB port. Windows will install the appropriate driver. After your PC recognizes the wireless adapter, select the "Connections" icon in the taskbar (represented by vertical bars). A list of available connections will appear. Select the desired connection. If you are prompted for a password, enter the appropriate password. Click "Connect." You are subsequently connected to a wireless network. Launch your browser and enjoy surfing the Internet wirelessly. If you are the owner of the wireless network, secure your wireless network with a password. To do so, navigate to the "Start" menu and select the "Control Panel." Then select "Network and Internet" and "Network and Sharing Center." Click "Change adapter settings" in the left pane. Double-click the icon of the appropriate wireless connection. The Wireless Network Connection status window appears. Click the "Wireless Properties" button. Select the "Security" tab and select an encryption type from the drop-down selection. Enter a password in the Network security key field. Make sure that the password matches the router settings. Press "OK" when done. Get a wireless internet router for your Internet connection if there is no wireless Internet already in your area. You can buy these online, or at electronic stores. You'll need to set up your router using the accompanying instructions and your own Internet service provider. This is best in a home with multiple computers. Hope this helps

HOW TO SET UP WIRELESS NETWORK TO MY HP6545B


Do you have a wireless router to connect to? You hp probably has the wireless adapter already installed. All you need to do is turn the wireless switch on (located on the side or in front of the laptop) then connect to the wireless router's SSID that is yours or the one you want to connect to. If it is password secured, then you will need to supply the password or network key.

Laptop Cannot Find Home Wireless Network


Try logging into the router with your desktop hard-wired and find the 25-digit passcode and use that to log on to the wireless network with the laptop. If not, then check if connection is good by hard-wiring the router to the laptop. Let me know what happens or if you have solved the problem.

Compaq presario sr2020nx ethernet adapter issue


Since youre setting up a DSL connection choose Set up broadband connection > PPPoE. You will need the username and password you were given to this account (contact customer service at your ISP for this info). Enter the info and have it remember the password. Click connect. Once Vista finds the connection, it will ask you to choose a network type (Home, Work, or Public). Select the type and enjoy. If the connection fails, recheck your username and password entries.

If I understand this correctly, Your work's IT people setup your router and you need the Security Password to access?

You should ask your work's IT people for the password.
If you are asking how to break that security key, I'm am not sure you will find that info here.

When you try to connect via wireless, does it ask for your wep key? Also try and running wireless network connection utility in setting up wireless networks, I'm sure you have already done this, but, it doesn't hurt to try it again and see if there is anything you may have overlooked.

Wireless Connectivity lost


Greetings Roxie
Are you using XP or Vista?

The default ip address for a Netgear 192.168.0.1 - the default user is 'admin' and the default password is 'password'. Is it possible for you to run an ethernet cable from your PC to the router or from your laptop to the router so we can address its configuration?

Once you have connected the cable, wait about 30 seconds and then open Internet Explorer. In the address bar type 192.168.0.1

At this point the login to the router should come up. If it doesn't report back and let me know. If it does - log in using the default info I listed above. Verify that your connection type is DHCP. From there go to the wireless settings page. Make sure that wireless is enabled and make note of the name (SSID) of your network. Also take note of what channel you are broadcasting on. By default it is probably 6 but you should probably change it to 11. You can also enable or disable the security encryption from this page but lets disable encryption if it is not already disabled.

Once you have verified these items are present and enabled, save the routers configuration. Disconnect your laptop from the router. Unplug the power to the router. Unplug the power to the modem. Make sure all of the lights on the modem go out. Stand tall and sing our national anthem (wait about a minute) and then plug the modem back in. Once the online light has gone solid green plug the power back into the router.

Now go to your laptop and observe the little computer icon in the lower right by the clock. Does it indicate that there are networks available? If so - double click on it to see the available networks. Make sure you are connecting to YOUR network (the SSID we took note of earlier). If it says connected - you should be OK. If it says anything else let me know what it is. Good luck!
