Wireless Internet using Vista Operating System

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?

    What does 'activated' mean - I have the switch on and the symbol for wireless is lit up on the keyboard - is there something else?

I have recently purchased the wire/wireless


What is the Operating system on the laptop ?
If it is XP then in the bottom right hand corner you will find Wireless network connection ( looks like 1 computer monitor). Use that icon to connect to the wireless network.
If it is windows Vista, then in the bottom right hand corner you will find 2 computer monitor icon. Use that icon to connect to the wireless network.
If it is Windows 98/ME/2000 then use the adapter utility to connect to the wireless network.
For MAC you will see the AIRPORT icon at the top.

Check the wireless settings of the router first . Make sure that yopu have all the wireless settings of the router. If you are not sure about the settings, then open the router set up and check the settings.

The OS on the computer is vista.
I think you will need to change the advanced wireless settings on the wireless router.
you can try changing the following settings on the wireless router.
Beakon Interval = 75
RTS threshold = 2307
Fragmentation threshold - 2306
Reduce the MTU 1400.
change the wireless channel.

You can also add the network manually on the vista computer.
open network and sharing center ==> manage network connections
If you see your network listed then highlight the network and click remove at the top.
Now click ADD option at the top.
Then select the option add network manually.
enter the wireless network name and security settings of the wireless network and then try to connect.
to change the wireless settings you will need to open the set up interface of the router.

I have an Acer Aspire 3100. I can not connect to the internet.


Try visiting the Windows Update page.

Usually when I have problems like this after a few updates the problem disappears.

Is the wireless network password protected?

Wireless Home network will not stay connected to internet


So you have a DSL modem connected to a router connected to a wireless router connected to both your computers? Sounds like you need to just get a wireless modem and throw all the routers away.

I recently bought an Amilio Laptop made by fujitsu Siemens I have tried two different wireless routers and cannot get the laptop to connect with either. It does have wireless built in. What am I doing...


Hi,

It might be that the Operating System is preventing connection to the router because:
  • the network is unsecured. look for the "Connect Anyway button";
  • the Amilo's WiFi is set to a manually configured IP address, pls try "Obtain an IP address automatically" in the Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) Properties of the Wireless Network Connection of the Control Panel/Network Connections;
  • it maybe that your Amilo has its own WiFi configuration and if so, you should disable the OS to manage your wireless connection.
Incidentally, you could try downloading a third party Wireless network detection software that is to verify that the Amilo's wireless card is working and that it can sense the Wireless router. An example would be NetStumbler.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back exact model number of the Amilo laptop, how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

Wireless connection


os is operating system ( xp vista etc). DHCP is dynamic host configuration protocol. For a wirelless connection to work you need first to authendicate on a wirelless networks ( if that is a secure network), Then depending on the network you are connected to you must optain an IP adreess a default gateway address and a DNS address. All this are listed after you type the ipconfig/all command.
Can you connect to the internet by using a cable connection to your modem?
PS:For ipconfig/all command do not type the "".

Laptop connection to Internet


In the simplest terms buy a longer ethernet cable or multiple ethernet cables and route them to several preferred areas.

However believing you probably would like to connect wirelessly

If your laptop has a built-in network card and originally came with Vista you may need to configure the network adapter and/or the router appropriately. There are often user guides for the both the adapter and router that will assist.

If your laptop has an built-in wireless adapter and you upgraded to Vista you should check the manufacturers website using support or drivers links to see if they have Vista software/drivers to support your built-in wireless adapter. IF not you may want to consider the purchase of a compatible add-on wireless adapter as noted below. And perform the appropriate configuration(s) as noted above.

Likewise if your laptop does not have a wireless adapter you may wish to consider purchasing an adapter. Care must be taken that the adapter is compatible with your computer, your operating system (Vista) and your wireless router (apparently WBR-1310).
