Hi, 1. check your physical connection. modem should be connected to the internet port of the router. wired pc to any lan ports (ports1-4) 2. make sure that the distance of the wireless router and wireless pc is not very far 3. if you know the wireless configuration of your router proceed with number 4, if not see my note below. 4. right click the wireless icon on the pc, choose 'view available wireless network' or connect to a network. 5. check if your SSID is showing. If it is showing and it says secured, click on it and enter your encryption (either WPA or WEP or WPA2). 6. if SSID is not showing, go to the router configuration page and change your channel. play around with your channel until your non working pc sees the SSID. note(checking router configuration): on the wired pc, open internet explorer browser, type http://192.168.0.1 (default username is admin & password is password or 1234) Note: if you changed your ip address or password on the router, use that.

Re: can't connect online
I recently had an issue with the same router, I got rid of it, and bought another brand.
Also if you have a cordless phone transmitting on the same frequency as your router, the phone will overpower the router and you won't pick up a signal from the router, but usually only if the phone is breing used.
a 6ya Technician can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

On your desktop, go to control panel and then to network and internet setting's. Now click on network devices and see if your printer show's up. If not, unplug printer for one minute then plug back in and power on, If it is detected in the network devices, then it should work. Being that it is no longer working for either the desktop or ipad, then it is most likely the printer itself and should now be available to both once it is detected in network devices . Once it is detected, left click on the printer icon and then right click on "connect".
USB: Ensures that the USB connection from your computer to the HP product is working correctly.
Ensures that the network connection between your computer and your
network is working correctly. If the tool detects a network connectivity
problem, you will be prompted to run the HP Network Diagnostic Utility
for better results.
: Automatically restarts the print spooler, which sends print jobs from the computer to the product, if it has been stopped.
: Checks if the product has been paused or set to offline, and then sets the status back to online if necessary.
: Checks for problems in Device Manager that would prevent printing.
: Checks for and clears pending print jobs in the print queue (a log of print jobs waiting to print).

Make sure that your computer is able to go online directly through the modem. If your computer is able to go online through the modem, that means the modem is working fine. You will need to connect the computer to the router and the modem to the router. open the set up page of the router and change the settings of the router according to the ISP.

Are we talking of going online, or booting the computer?
Anyway, likely causes include attempts to connect to online services (e.g., to check upgrades, send statistics and what have you), being stalled due to no DNS yet or due to a lagging DNS.
You can investigate such situations with tools like BootVis or SysInternals TCPView and SysInternals Process Explorer. Be aware, though, that such diagnostics require a good deal of field experience to be used to the full.
An easier even if maybe not as complete way to diagnose slowdowns could be a network tuning utility, e.g., Network Mechanic or TCP SpeedUp. This will only diagnose network bottlenecks, though; "stalled update requests" will not be detected.
hi.. so you are not able to see the networks at all,1st make sure that we are detecting the wireless network and that the drivers are installed in the computer follow these steps.. click on start,control panel,network and internet connection and then network connection. 2)under network connection you will see a conneciton that says wireless network connection. 3)right click and click on view wireless networks,once you are in this box if it says windows cannot configure then perform step number 5 and if you can see the network perform steps no 4. 4)you will probably see the network of you school,click on the netwokr name and you will see a tab that says connect,click on connect and if the network in your school is secured then it will tell you to put in the password which you can get by speaking with the network administrator..once connected it will tell you that you are connected and then try going online.. 5)if no networks are detected and says windows cannot configure,click on start,all progams,dell wireless and then click on dell wireless wlan card utility, 6)In this card utility you will see a that says general and under that tab you will see a box which will shows you the available networks then click on the network and then either you will have a connected button or cofigure button now depending upon the network it will either tell you to put the password or the network key once you do that the wireless should get connected and you should be able to go online now...
hope this steps will resolve the issue...Best of luck... let me know incase if you see a different screen..
I have seen this kind of strange behavior when the adapter is bad. No network detection, or connect but no webpages would ever come up, weird problems. All cleared up by replacing the adapter with an identical one, so it was not because of any settings or software issues. A new adapter is probably needed.
