Did you do a backup of your system when you bought your laptop? If you did you can use the disk/s to restore your computer to factory default. If not antother thing you can try is looking in control panel to see if the wireless is still displaying. If not go to add hardware and see if it picks it up again. Or you can try going to control panel, system, device manager, and see if there is an exclamation mark next to wirless, this indicates a problem, right click it and go to properties, then go to update driver. If this doesn't work, but the exclamation mark is there try right clicking and go to uninstall. Reboot the computer and it should pick it up again as new hardware and install it again. Hope this helps

Whilst starting lap top it stopped halfway through and left blackscreen with only cursor


You may have to restore your machine to Factory Settings. If you have files that you do not want to lose, you could try this... Pull the hard drive out, and use a "USB Hard Drive Adapter" to connect the hard drive to a friend's computer, and save all the personal files (documents, pictures, etc.) you can to a folder on the friend's computer or an external hard drive.
Then, you could try to do a Factory Restore on the computer, and if that works, copy your personal files back to your newly restored computer. See... http://community.sony.com/t5/VAIO-Software-Other-Operating/Restore-computer-to-factory-settings/td-p/27535

I have a new lap top which is recognising the wireless network and then asking for a network security key. How do I find this?


The network security key is essentially a password that was setup to control access to your network. Presumably, when you set it up you gave it a password that you could remember, but not so obvious that people could easily guess. If you've forgotten or lost the password, you can reset the router by using a paperclip and holding the reset button for about 10-15 seconds. Once you reset the router, it will be restored to its original factory defaults and you can then setup again your wireless networking.

Hey, my name is Wesley Murphy and I'm having trouble with our Netgear g54 wireless router. We just got a lap-top and we're trying to get wireless set up on it. We do have internet, that isn't the problem....


  1. Log in to your NETGEAR router by browsing to http://www.routerlogin.net or http://www.routerlogin.com. Enter the username (admin) and password. By default, the password is password or 1234 unless it has already been changed.
  2. From the left-hand navigation menu of the Router Manager, select Set Up > Wireless Settings.

3. From the center screen, select your encryption type from under the Security Options heading.

    • If the wireless network passphrase is visible, review it and use it to log devices onto your network.
    • If it is not visible, you can change your wireless passphrase; however, changing the passphrase will cause you to lose your wireless connection. Connect your computer to the router with an Ethernet cable before entering a new passphrase into the text box and clicking Apply.
If you cannot log into your router:

Unfortunately, there is no way to recover a lost or forgotten password from a router or access point; you will need to reset the device to factory defaults. However, once the device is reset to factory defaults, you can use the default username ("admin") and password (either "password" or "1234" depending on your router) to reconfigure your router settings.


you might have put in the wrong password or user id check to make sure you have put these in correctly first make sure the caps lock is on/off what ever applies to your user and password id that you provided to your ISP
also
make sure your routers settings are correct ie:password user name,firewall settings to allow your internet to connect also test the lead/s whether usb or ethernet you might check your modem first to make sure that you are getting a connection

Unfortunately, there is no way to recover a lost or forgotten password from a router or access point; you will need to reset the device to factory defaults. However, once the device is reset to factory defaults, you can use the default username ("admin") and password (either "password" or "1234" depending on your router) to reconfigure your router settings.

or

if there is a small hole in the front or back of the router push a hair pin in to reset to factory settings

hope this helps

last resort ring your ISP internet sevice provider get them to check your modem for internet access online

hope this helps


NOTE: Restoring factory defaults on a device will erase any customizations you have made. You will lose any configurations saved to the device!

My default IP ADRESS is192.168.1.1, and am trying to change my router password for wireless connection


If you ever lose your settings or if your settings are changed and the router is not functioning properly, you can come to this area to restore your saved settings from the backup file you created. Click Browse to locate the backup settings file you previously created. When you have located it, click Restore and the settings saved within this file will be applied to the router. If you did not create a backup file, you may need to restore the factory default settings.
device3.gif Factory Settings If you ever want to erase all personal settings of your router, come to this area and click Reload to restore the factory default settings. All the current settings will be lost. If you change the router's configuration and it stops functioning properly you can reload the factory settings to fix it.
device3.gif The other method to restore the factory default settings is to press in and hold the RESET button on the Wireless MAXg Router for between five and ten seconds. You will lose all of your personal settings if you restore the factory default settings. You might need to do this if you are unable to access the Web User Interface or have forgotten your password.

My son went onto my lap top and changed my secure network password for my wireless internet. how do i reset this so i can connect onto the wireless internet with my lap top?


on the back there should be a reset button. It is small and recessed so you will need to use the tip of a paperclip or something similar to press it. Hold this button for 10 seconds with the power to the device ON to restore it to factory defaults. Passwords and such will be located in the user manual which may be available for download from the manufacturer's website.

Unable to access secured wireless network


Sometime the wireless setup page on the router will show you the password. If it doesn't you will have to reset the router. If you have a DSL connection make sure you know the username and password for the DSL account before you reset the router. On the back of most routers there is a little hole with a button inside. Use a paperclip to push in the button and hold it down for 10 secs. This will restore the router to factory settings, so you will have to go back and configure all of your setting on the router. I can give you more details on how to do this if you will reply with the router make and model.
