I have a acer 6930 that keeps losing wireless connection when everything else in the house is still working

Configure Windows to manage your wireless network by right-clicking the wireless network icon and select view avalable networks... then click change advance settings... then click the wireless tab... If you don't see a wireless tab, then close it and click start then run and type service.msc and press ok. doublde-click the wireless zero configuration and set it to automatic then click start to start the service. then do the first few instructions until you see the wireless tab. Bullet-mark the "Let windows manage wireless network" then click apply or ok.

Try to reconnect to your wireless network and you should be able to maintain your connections wirelessly.

Hey can anyone help me, my Compaq nc6000 won't connect to wireless networks it says something about a smart card.

Access the router by means of an ethernet cable and log into the router. Go into the wireless setting of the router and select WPA-AES as the security protocol and select a password. Then go into your wireless settings on the notebook and do the same.

I keep tuning on my wireless internet on my dell lattitude d600 and my wireless internet wont come on it doesnt show anything wen i press fn and f2

check the error message when you try to search for your network. If it says it cannot find network in range and wireless zero configuration utility is turned off than click on start go to run and type : services.msc, click ok, on right hand side scroll the window to the bottom and you'll see wireless zero configuration >> double click on it >> change the start up type to automatic and click apply then change service to started and click on ok.

Afterwards check if you see your network name or else

click on start >> go to control panel >> double click on network and internet connections >> right click on wireless network connection >> click on properties and go to wireless tab >> check the box at the top that says use windows utility >> click on ok and than right click on wireless network connection and click view available wireless networks. It will show you your network name. click and connect to your network

try it!

Ok Ok I found the blue Fn key located next to teh

Couple of things to check here is, one did you try and right click on the interenet connection(where it shows the connection.) then click on network and sharing center. look for the wireless network. may have to choose manage networks. Secondly if this fails you will want to check the device manager and go down to networks and double click and see if the wireless driver is working.
