Please make sure that the wireless antenna switch is on. Then enable the wireless feature using the hot key combination for your laptop (if available but need not be done since you were able to detect networks earlier). If you are using Vista, please click on Start-Connect to to see if your laptop is now able to detect networks.
If laptop is not able to detect any networks, please uninstall the wireless network adapter by going to Start - Control Panel - Classic View - Device Manager - Network Adapters - select the one for the  Wireless Network Adapter - properties - driver tab - uninstall - ok. Then please restart your laptop. Click on Start - Connect to  and see if your laptop is now able to detect networks.
If laptop is still not able to detect wireless networks, please click on Start - All Programs - Accessories - System Tools - System Restore then choose a restore point (date) which is a possible time when your laptop was able to detect wireless networks. Laptop will restart automatically and notify you if the restoration is completed. Try Start - Connect to. Hope it works this time. Thank you.

It is possible to have LAN card configured and connect to the modem with a cable, and have a separate wireless card configured for connection to a Wi-Fi hotspot. I can run both a wireless and a LAN cable (one at a time) on a single computer and have no problems.
The Verizon installation has changed your wireless card configuration.
It is very difficult for me to advise and explain in great detail what to do.
Check the Wi-Fi hotspot provider for the configuration you need to connect to a Wi-Fi, these are located at sites such as McDonalds and Starbucks and reconfigure your wireless card accordingly.

Our new kindle paper white will not connect to our wifi


The Kindle Paperwhite automatically scans for Wi-Fi networks that are in range of your device. If one networks are found, the device will connect automatically. If a password is required, a screen appears asking you to input that information. Generally, the process is quick and easy.
Occasionally, however, you may need to connect to the Wi-Fi network manually. Follow these steps:
  1. Tap Menu?Settings.
  2. If the network to which you want to connect appears in the list, tap that network.You're finished!
  3. If the network to which you want to connect doesn't appear in the list:
    1. Tap Other.A dialog box named Enter Wi-Fi Network appears, along with the on-screen keyboard.
    2. Using the onscreen keyboard, enter the network name and, if applicable, the password.
    3. Tap the Advanced button.
    4. Work through the series of screens, entering information related to the network, including connection type, IP address, and security type.
      Advance through the screens by using the up and down arrows.
      If necessary, contact the person who set up the network for assistance with filling in this information.
    5. When all the necessary information has been entered, tap the Connect button to join the network.
If your Kindle Paperwhite is connected to your home network but can't connect to Amazon, you may need to reestablish the connection. Tap Menu?Settings?Wi-Fi Networks, and then tap the network that has a check mark to its left. When the Forget Network? dialog box appears, tap Forget. You'll have to reselect the network and enter the password (if one is required).
If you're having trouble connecting to your home network, unplug the Wi-Fi router, wait at least 60 seconds, and then plug it in and wait for the network to restart.
If this does not work....follow this link and do a factory reset.

Connecting ur Nokia N95 to internet through WIFI [No Wireless Router]


Tutorial for connecting ur Nokia N95 to internet through WIFI [No Wireless Router]
Hello mates,

Finally after 4 hours of searching and trying I was able to hook my Nokia N95 to my laptop without router and browse internet on my mobile.

I tried using my laptop’s Wi-Fi Card as router or connection point between my pc and my phone.

This connection is known as “ad-hoc” connection. Ad hoc wireless networks work more like walkie-talkies, because the computers communicate directly with each other. By enabling Internet Connection Sharing on one of the computers, you can share Internet access.

To see the difference between ad-hoc and router check the picture

With router

With ad-hoc
http://img408.imageshack.us/my.php?i...9484580ds9.gif


Now lets see what do we need:

1. We need a Wi-Fi card on the computer
2. Internet connection that doesn’t use your Wi-Fi card (example Like mine: Cable-modem connected to my laptop through LAN).

Now Let’s Setup our Wi-Fi card as router:

1. Click Start, and then click Control Panel.

2. Click Network and Internet Connections.

3. Right-click your wireless network connection, and then click Properties.

4. In the Wireless Network Connection Properties dialog box, click the Wireless Networks tab.

5. Next, click the Advanced tab at the top of the window. Select Computer to computer (ad hoc) networks only and clear the Automatically connect to non-preferred networks box if it is selected. This setting, along with removing preferred networks, ensures connection to the ad hoc network only.

6. Click the Wireless Networks tab again. Under Preferred Networks, click Add,

7. In the Wireless Network Properties dialog box, specify a Network name (SSID). I chose (My Nokia N95).
[img=http://img111.imageshack.us/img111/487/37714878od7.th.gif]
8. Unclear the box “ the key is provided for me automatically”.
[img=http://img87.imageshack.us/img87/9949/86872283hs2.th.gif]
9. Type your Network key password and confirm it in the second Network key conformation box( your password has to be 5 characters or 13 characters ), Press Ok.
[img=http://img503.imageshack.us/img503/9176/10is2.th.gif]
10. After configuring the network name (SSID) in the Wireless Network Properties dialog box, the new ad hoc network will be displayed with a PC Card icon to designate that this is a computer-to-computer network. Press also Ok.
[img=http://img111.imageshack.us/img111/4931/101mu2.th.gif]
11. Right-click the Wireless Network icon in the lower right corner of your screen, and then click View Available Wireless Networks..
[img=http://img503.imageshack.us/img503/7017/12yf6.th.gif]
12 . The Wireless Network Connection window appears and displays your wireless network listed with the SSID you chose( My Nokia N95). If you don't see your network, click Refresh Network List in the upper left corner. Do not click Connect in the lower right corner.
[img=http://img87.imageshack.us/img87/6600/13wm3.th.gif]

Now we have to share the internet:

14. Click Start, and then click Control Panel.
[img=http://img111.imageshack.us/img111/6918/14ta5.th.gif]
15. Click Network and Internet Connections.
[img=http://img503.imageshack.us/img503/5887/15xb5.th.gif]
16. Since I have a cable modem and it connected to my laptop through LAN so must share its connection with My Wi-FI card. Right-click the Local Area Connection and press properties.
[img=http://img503.imageshack.us/img503/4872/16ck2.th.gif]
17. Now you are in Local Area Connection Properties choose tab Advanced.
[img=http://img111.imageshack.us/img111/2746/17ih3.th.gif]
18 . select the Allow other network users to connect through this computer's Internet connection check box.
[img=http://img87.imageshack.us/img87/8369/18ve0.th.gif]

Now On Your Nokia N95 Phone (I have v20 Firmware) :

19 . Go to Menu>Tool> click on WLAN Wiz. Your Network name should appear ( in the example its “My Nokia N95”).
[img=http://img87.imageshack.us/img87/6633/screenshot0004vw7.th.jpg]
20. Select Option > Start Brwosing.
[img=http://img503.imageshack.us/img503/1807/screenshot0005wj4.th.jpg]
21. Now it should ask you for the Network key password you entered in step 9 and Press OK.
[img=http://img503.imageshack.us/img503/9264/screenshot0007yk6.th.jpg]
22. Now it opened the web so I chose Nokia Nseies web site ans start browse it.
[img=http://img87.imageshack.us/img87/4574/screenshot0010oq1.th.jpg]
23. While it connecting to” My Nokia N95” you should see that your phone Network status will appear Connected on your computer.
[img=http://img503.imageshack.us/img503/6197/19aw8.th.gif]

24. Wait for 30 Second and it will Open.
[img=http://img87.imageshack.us/img87/2649/screenshot0011qg4.th.jpg]


Note Important : you should turn you firewall off because it will block the connection and after you succeed connecting N95 to internet try configure your firewall so it will allow internet accesing.

How do get wi-fy on my tablet?


It's a good idea to access Wi-Fi whenever possible to avoid data charges. After you've activated the Android tablet's Wi-Fi radio, you can connect to an available wireless network. Obey these steps:
  1. Open the Settings app.
  2. Choose Wi-Fi.On some Samsung tablets, you find the Wi-Fi item on the Connections tab. Choose Wi-Fi to view a list of available Wi-Fi networks on the right side of the screen. Otherwise, the list shows up full screen.
    433273.image0.jpg
  3. Choose a wireless network from the list.When no wireless networks are listed, you're sort of out of luck regarding Wi-Fi access from your current location.
  4. If prompted, type the network password.
    Touch the Show Password check box so that you can see what you're typing; some of those network passwords can be long.
  5. Touch the Connect button.
    The network is connected immediately. If not, try the password again.
When the tablet is connected to a wireless network, you see the Wi-Fi Connected status icon. This icon indicates that the tablet's Wi-Fi is on, connected, and communicating with a Wi-Fi network.
Some wireless networks don't broadcast their names, which adds security but also makes connecting more difficult. In those cases, touch the Add icon. This icon might also be labeled Add Wi-Fi or Manually Connect. To make the connection, type the network name, or SSID, and choose the type of security.
You also need the password, if one is used. You can obtain this information from the girl with the pink hair who sold you coffee or from whoever is in charge of the wireless network at your location.
  • Not every wireless network has a password. Still:
  • Be careful when connecting to a non-password-protected network. It's possible that the Bad Guys can monitor such a network, stealing passwords and other information.
  • Some public networks are open to anyone, but you have to use the web browser app to find a login web page that lets you access the network: Simply browse to any page on the Internet, and the login web page shows up.
  • The Android tablet automatically remembers every Wi-Fi network it has ever been connected to and automatically reconnects upon finding the same network again.
  • To disconnect from a Wi-Fi network, simply turn off Wi-Fi.
  • Use Wi-Fi whenever you plan to remain in one location for a while. Unlike a mobile data network, a Wi-Fi network's broadcast signal has a limited range. If you wander too far away, your tablet loses the signal and is disconnected.
