I have recently purchased a new laptop with Vista OS on it. I have tried to connect to wireless network in my office and via hotspots at airports, but I receive a message that I cannot connect and that 'wireless' is not activated. Does Vista have some special security that is difficult to work around?

First of all make sure your system and your iPhone connected to same wifi network. Try to disable and enable network adaptor of your PC using Device Manager, also disable and enable wi-fi connection after doing that Make sure you have enabled Wireless sync in your iPhone then restart the itunes.. Wait few seconds it will surely find out your iPhone.
You have to ocnnect your iphone to internet first , Follow below step to connect to internet
When you use any Internet enabled application, iPhone does the following in order until connected:
Connects over the last Wi-Fi network you used that's available.
If no Wi-Fi networks you've used are available, shows a list of Wi-Fi networks in range. Tap a network and, if necessary, enter the password to join. Networks that require a password show next to them.
If no Wi-Fi networks are available or you choose not to join any, iPhone connects over the cellular data network.
Note: You can be on a call and use Wi-Fi or 3G1 at the same time. Other cellular data networks are unavailable while you're on a call.
Wi-Fi is often faster than cellular data networks. Wi-Fi networks cover limited areas. iPhone can join AirPort and other Wi-Fi networks at home, at work, or at Wi-Fi hot spots around the world. When iPhone is connected to a Wi-Fi network, the Wi-Fi icon in the status bar at the top of the screen shows connection strength. The more bars you see, the stronger the connection.
To see all the Wi-Fi networks in range, from the Home screen choose Settings > Wi-Fi. Tap a network to join it.
Many Wi-Fi networks can be used free of charge, and some require a fee. To join a Wi-Fi network at a hot spot where charges apply, in most cases you can open Safari to see a webpage that allows you to sign up for service.
For information about configuring Wi-Fi settings, see the "Wi-Fi" section of the iPhone User's Guide. Note: iOS devices sold in China may use the term Wireless LAN (WLAN) instead of Wi-Fi. Not all China iPhone models support WLAN; see this article for more information.
Cellular data networks
Cellular data networks allow Internet connectivity over the cellular network. Check your carrier's network coverage in your area for availability.
You can tell iPhone is connected to the Internet over a cellular data network if you see , or in the status bar at the top of the screen.
If you're outside your carrier's network, you may be able to use a cellular data network from another carrier. Roaming charges may apply. Note: If not on 3G, while iPhone is actively transferring data over the cellular data network-downloading a webpage, for example-you may not be able to receive calls. Incoming calls may go to voicemail.
I hope , after this , you will be able to connect to Internet....
Go to System Preferences from the Apple icon menu (top left)
under the Internet & Wireless section there is a Network icon (glass ball looking thing) click on that.
green dot next to ethernet (or wireless whatever one you use) means you are connected.
yellow dot means ready but not connected.
red dot means not connected.
If you have a red dot next to the connection that you use, check your router or modem. You might have to call you ISP if the problems keep happening.
here is a step by step guide. If you still have problems or need further assistance please let me know and i will assist you further.
Your PSP will detect any wireless wireless network within its range as long as the wireless
adapter is switched on. The switch for this is on the left end of the PSP, near the analogue
thumbstick. If the switch is in the down position, the wireless network adapter is off; push the
switch into the up position and it'll turn it on. If you're not going to be using wireless
networking it's a good idea to keep it turned off as it'll make your batteries last longer.
When you turn on your PSP's wireless adapter it'll look for any wireless networks nearby. If
there's another PSP within range it'll automatically set up what's called an 'ad-hoc' network
between the two. This will enable you to play multiplayer games between the two PSPs with one
hosting the game and the other joining it. When you want to join an existing wireless network,
such as when you want to browse the internet, you'll be using an 'infrastructure' wireless
To connect to a wireless network, go to the home screen of your PSP and look under Settings. If
you scroll all the way to the bottom you'll find Network Settings, so enter this and on the next
screen you'll be asked to choose between Ad-Hoc and Infrastructure, so pick the latter by
selecting it and pressing X. Press O to return to the previous screen. You'll need to set up a
Connection. You can save the settings for 10 different Connections and you can choose between the
Connections you've set up whenever you need to use the Infrastructure network mode.
Pick New Connection and press X. You can give the new Connection a name by pressing X and using
the text-entry screen. Give it a descriptive name like 'Home Network' or 'University Network' so
you know when and where you can use it. When you've entered the name for your new Connection
you'll be asked whether you want to scan for WLAN settings or to enter them manually; select the
Scan option and press right on the directional-pad. Your PSP will then scan the area for any
available networks and collect the settings needed.
A list of available networks (called Access Points) will be displayed, giving its name (called an
SSID), whether it's encrypted or not and the signal strength. If there is more than one network,
use the D-pad to scroll down to the one you want to join and press X. You'll be asked to confirm
the settings so press right on the D-pad to scroll through each. When you get to the security
settings, choose the appropriate setting from the list, which is WEP in most cases, and press
right on the D-pad again. If you need to enter the WEP key, speak to whoever runs the wireless
network and they'll provide it for you. Press X and enter the WEP using the text-entry screen.
Once you've done that you can check the settings you've entered on the final screen and save
them. Now you'll be able to connect to the wireless network. If you return to the main home
screen you can now update your PSP's software by going to Settings and selecting Network Update.
Alternatively you can go to the Network section on the far right of the home screen to browse the
internet using the PSP's in-built internet browser. Or you can fire up that multi-player game
you've been itching to try out and get going!
Now you're online, if you need further assistance or get an error code please let me know and i
will be glad to assist you further. Thanks-Midwest-tek
go to roxio web page and download the drivers for your cd rom operating in xp thats the problem. you still have the vista drivers in your registry. i would clean your registry before installing the drivers also so you wont have conflict,
hmmm.. we only have two computers at my work connected to a router. the designjet has a network card going straight to it. i connect to the router wireless and it reads vista. my boss connects to the design jet thru the router as well with a network card rj cable with xp pro. as for our printer it can be connected via router and does work fine but my boss has it directely connected to his computer and i share it off of his system. then we also have a zerox machine connected via router as well. maybe your router is going out? try a new one or a better one and see if that fixes it. it maybe defected or time for a new one.......
if it was working before then maybe its the router.
Welcome to FixYa! Vista is not access friendly but you will able to see your connection status by clicking on the network connection icon on the taskbar where you will see "Connected to: " and if you click on that a network map will appear. You will see a red "X" between your wireless access point icon and your Internet icon if the access status is "Local only". Clicking on the Internet icon will retry that connection. Make sure that your ip address is not 169.xxx.xx.x as that is Windows little way of saying it can't connect.
If you choose the Diagnose option it will do a release/renew operation automatically. With Vista you must "elevate" access by right clicking on the Command prompt executable and choose "Run as administator" if you wish to do that ipconfig manually.
Also when you are in the firewall configuration select the wireless connection>settings and make sure all of the permissions boxes are checked (ICMP, etc.)
With the adaptor advanced settings make sure your adaptor has the wireless mode (a, b, g, n) at the correct mode.
Have you tried logging on to the router via the Run bar? That is the most informative way to see your router config. Please repost if you need help with that. I also am a network professional certified since 1978 so I know that Vista defies using many tools we took for granted for so many years and often makes me feel frustrated. Maybe Windows 7 will be better as I only run Vista to help others like yourself, though at least you can understand what I am talking about:) Good luck, Steve Medley
