    I have my desktop connected to the same router and it is connecting. I checked the Device manager and it has no yellow or red markings. I have "pinged" several sites (Yahoo, Google, and Bellsouthnet) and the tests were successful. The modem also is clear but when running a test with the Bellsout Fast Access DSL Help Center software that came with my modem, it shows no modem detected. I'm lost!

    What does "re install city" mean?

  • houseofglass Oct 26, 2008

    It was in a Clarification Request posted by WeListen2You. It is at the bottom of my post listed above. How are you going to get into my laptop if it won't connect to the net?

    Yes I am. Thank you. Do I need to go back in and reinstall my wireless connection?

Hi,

You may try checking the network driver of your computer.

1. click start --- right click "My computer / Computer".

2. click Manager then look for device manager.

3. under device manager on the left column. Look for your network adapter if it has a yellow question mark or a red x mark.

Red X - disabled.(right click then select enable)
yellow mark - driver is not installed/corrutped (you need to install the driver online or from the cd that came with the computer)

4. Restart

Now, if the issue still the same. Try a different computer and check if you can connect to the internet. If the issue still the same. Call you Internet service provider to check on the connection.

Keep me posted.

Thanks.

    That's not a problem. Restart your computer. When your computer is restarting and you see the logo. keep on tapping (pressing it on/off) F8 until you see the message "boot advance option". select the option.. safe mode with networking. When you are already in safe mode.. you will see a prompt message. just click yes. then try to check the internet.

    when you are connected, login to this website.

Can't get wireless to work on laptop


You may use the System restore utility on windows by going to all programs then Accessories... Open system Tools and then System Restore. You may resotre your system to an earlier time, time when you are still able to connect to your router wirelessly.

There something blocking my computer for connecting to my wireless internet. my mother boyfriend try to add dial up to my laptop i dont know why but now vits locked up and will not connect to the internet


Assuming you have XP first do a system restore (start/accessories/system tools/system restore) restore it to a date when your connection last worked correctly.
If that dont work go into control panel open internet options click connections remove any connections and click never dial a connection.

Run a system restore. You may need to go back two or three restore points before it fixes the problem, but the restore should do the trick. Try this, let me know, and if the problem persists, then we'll try a different approach.
