    wireless not working

  • MopedFred Feb 16, 2009

    I tried everything and my computer still does not recognize my wireless connection. Could my antenna be toggled "off"? The light that normally shows my wireless is not coming on?? My son's computer works fine with our wireless system so I know it's not the router.

    I tried to repair the wireless connection with no luck.

    Is there a step by step approach that I can follow?

    Please HELP.

Yes, There could be alot of things that are causing your Operating System to not obtain signal from your Wireless Router....I would first of all try troubleshooting this by;;
1st - Unplug your High-Speed Internet Modem and Wireless Router for 30 seconds apprx.
2nd - Restart your Computer.
3rd - Once your computer is logged in and at desktop, Plug-In your High-Speed Modem then wait until all lights appear that show your Modem is online then plug-in your Wireless Router then wait about 30 seconds then try to connect to your Wireless Connection.
If these do not work make sure that, you do not have your Wireless Router. I would also recommend that a way to create and obtain a signal strength that the computer can reach please go to the following website This should assist you with making a stronger signal strength.

I have just got in broadband but my xbox aint picking up my wireless signal upstairs,ive got the wireless adapter for the xbox,its picking up a few neighbours network connections,surely my xbox should be...

It is possible that the Xbox will be unable to pick up the wireless signal being transmitted by your gateway because the signal is too weak.

The connection speed of your internet has nothing to do with the strength of the signal. The best way to test this would be to try to connect to your wireless internet on a laptop while sitting near the xbox. If you cannot, you will know that the signal isn't powerful enough to reach that location.

There are three common options to amplifying your signal if necessary.

1) Purchase a High-gain antenna for your wireless gateway
2) Purchase a wireless repeater
3) Purchase a new router/gateway with a longer range capability. A "Wireless N" enabled router would be optimal for this application.

Activating wireless

Check the Device Manager to see if the Wireless card is working and enabled. If not reinstall the wireless card driver.
If this doesn't work, you may have a faulty wireless card.
If the wireless card is not built-in remove it and insert it into another computer to test the wireless card.
