wifi
Most new laptops are equipped with all the components necessary to go online wirelessly to account for the increasing popularity of Wi-Fi Internet.

If you find that you are not able to connect to any wireless networks on a laptop, take a few basic troubleshooting steps on your own before having the laptop serviced.

In all likelihood, you will be able to restore your laptop's wireless functionality and be browsing Wi-Fi Internet in no time.

Enable the wireless card by pressing the radio button, typically located near the top of the keyboard.

Press the radio button until a light illuminates indicating that your wireless card has been enabled and is ready to go online wirelessly.

Test your connectivity once again; if there is still no wireless access, it is time to check for a possible issue with your wireless card.


Navigate to the computer's device manager by opening the "Start" menu and either clicking "Device Manager" from the "Control Panel" window or right-clicking "My Computer," clicking "Properties," and choosing "Device Manager" from the "Hardware" tab, depending on what version of operating system you use.


Look for the wireless card in the Device Manager by clicking the "+" next to "Network Adapters." If you see any item labeled "Wireless Card" or "Wireless Controller," check to see if it has a "?," "X," "!" placed over the name; if it does, you will need to update the software drivers for the wireless card. Contact the manufacturer of the computer for assistance.

Attempt to connect a wireless network other than your home network. Make sure you connect to a wireless network that you are legally allowed to use, such as a free public Wi-Fi hotspot, and that you are not illegally connecting to someone else's wireless network.

If you can connect to other Wi-Fi networks, the problem is likely isolated to your home network and you will need to troubleshoot that.

If you are still can't connect to any Wi-Fi networks after following the steps above, you may need to have the laptop serviced or have its wireless card replaced.

Afer i reformat my lenevo 3000 g430 i can't connect anymore to a wifi connection


Hi Welcome to FixYa!
Have you already installed the drivers for your computer? If not yet, it could be the reason why you are not able to use your wifi. Follow these steps so that you could know what to do next:
1)check the device manager in Windows: A)if you are using Windows 7 or Vista: -click on Start, then on the searchbox, kindly search for Device Manager and open it. You should have something like this: mondimondz_1.png
B)if you are using Windows XP: click on start>run>type devmgmt.msc and it will open the device manager Window.
2)If you will find a category that says Other Devices, kindly look for a item that says "Network Controller" if you find it, it means that the Wifi adapter on the comptuer is not yet installed. All you need to do is insert the drivers disc CD if one came with the computer when you bought it. If not, you could try connecting the laptop to the modem directly using a cable and download the driver from Lenovo's support website: www.support.lenovo.com

3)If you still cannot connect with a direct connection, the Ethernet adapter could have been not yet installed also. You could also check it on the Device Manager window and look for Ethernet Controller under Other Devices. or check the category Network Adapters and see if the Ethernet Adapter is installed.
4)if the drivers are already installed, you can try contacting your Internet Provider or call Lenovo's Technical Support Team.
hope this would be a big help!

Hi. i have an ibm t40 running wit winxp sp2. i can't connect to internet with my ethernet card. i have an error that shows "intel pro 100 network connection" is either damaged or absent. But i know that it...


It's possible you have a damaged network adapter. Depending on if it's built in or an add on will determine how to proceed.

If it's an add on take it out of the computer and remove all the software and drivers. Go to Device manager and make sure it's out of there too. Now reinstall the software and drivers then reinstall the network adapter.

If your adapter is built in you need to start by disabling the adapter on the mother board. This is done in the BIOS/CMOS setup. Enter your BIOS setup as your computer is booting up, if your unfamiliar with this be very careful changing the wrong setting can have dire consequences. After disabling the adapter follow the previous instructions for removing and reinstalling the software and drivers. After this is done reactivate your network adapter, your computer should reconize and reinstall the adapter.

This should have you up and running unless the adapter is damaged.

How do you connect to the internet with the compaqnx9005? Do I have to buy a network card? Paul


Any "modern" notebook computer will have both an Ethernet adapter and a wireless adapter built-in, especially one labelled as a "business" model.

Click Start
Click Control Panel
Click Classic View
Click System
Click Hardware
Click Device Manager
Click the '+' in front of Network Adapters
to show the installed adapters.

Take an Ethernet cable, and connect one end to the Ethernet slot in your computer, and the other end to a cable-modem or a DSL-modem, and you'll have an Internet connection, through the Internet Service Provider of your choice (Comcast, Roadrunner, Verizon, et cetera).

Or, connect "wirelessly" at the local Starbucks.

Wireless modem connects but with limited access. web browsers wont open


Go to control panel > System> Hardware > Device Manager > scroll to your wireless network adapter and select it. Right click on it and select uninstall. Make sure though not to uninstall the device drivers. Now reboot the machine and let windows find the hardware and attempt to install the drivers. It will ask you (if it is connected to the internet by cable) if it can search windows update for an updated driver...answer yes and let windows do its thing. When it is done, you should be able to connect back to the internet via wireless. You just have to sign back on to your network with the security number.

You mean you need the ethernet drivers or windows does't reconize the hardware?

If it is the drivers you can download here:

About laptop ethernet...


First figure out whether your hardware is ok and driver is installed properly. In Windows XP, click Start , right-click My Computer , and select Properties .
  1. In Windows 98 and Me, right-click My Computer , and select Properties .
  2. In Windows XP, click the Hardware tab, and then the Device Manager button. In Windows 98 and Me, click the Device Manager tab.
  3. If the Network adapters category is present with a (+) sign , then skip to Step 6. If Network Adapters has a (-) sign , continue to Step 5. Disregard adapters that do not reference an Ethernet Adapter .
  4. If a network adapter is not listed inside, do one of the following items based on the condition of the networking hardware:
    • Networking hardware is not installed. Install a new network card (desktop computer) or a new network PCMCIA card (notebook computer) per the card manufacturers' suggestions. This does not apply to on-board networking hardware.
    • The network card is not seated fully into its socket. For Desktops, remove the side-case, reseat the network card, and replace side case. For notebook computers, remove and reseat the network PCMCIA card. This does not apply to on-board networking hardware.
    • If the computer is older, it may need to have jumpers on the network card set to an IRQ and address range that is not already being used by another device. Remove the side-case, set the jumpers on the card, and replace the side case. Replacing the older network card with a newer Plug and Play network card is probably a better option.
    • For desktop PCs with on-board networking hardware, reset the BIOS:
      1. Restart the PC.
      2. Press F1 repeatedly when the first screens appear.
      3. Press F5 and Enter to reset the BIOS to default settings.
      4. Press F10 and Enter to save the settings and exit BIOS setup .
      5. Restart the PC.
      6. Check Device Manager again for the presence of the Networks adapters category. If the network adapter name is still missing, the on-board network adapter may be damaged. The motherboard should be replaced, or a PCI network adapter should be installed.
  5. If the network adapter is listed, but has a yellow exclamation mark over its icon c00060708.jpg , do one of the following:
    • Software drivers and supportive files may be missing or corrupted. Remove the device from Device Manager and reinstall the software by restarting the computer. See Step 5: Reinstalling network adapter software drivers .
    • If the computer is older, it may need to have jumpers on the network card set to an IRQ and address range that is not already being used by another device. Remove the side-case, set the jumpers on the card, and replace the side case. Replacing the older network card with a newer Plug and Play card is probably a better option.
  6. If the network adapter listed has a green adapter icon c00060709.jpg , the networking adapter is probably functioning correctly. If the PC still cannot connect to the Internet, make sure to complete the following steps before continuing:
    • The cable or DSL hardware may have stopped responding. Reset the cable or DSL hardware using the manufacturer suggestions.
    • There still may be a connection problem. Recheck the cable connections and replace any cables that have been pinched or that you suspect are bad.
    • The Internet Service may be down at your provider. Most Service Providers have a telephone support number. Call the ISP support number. If an outage is occurring, an automated response about system wide service outages will probably play. In this case wait until the service comes back.
    If the network adapter icon is listed without problems, and the connections, service, and modem are working properly, then refresh the networking drivers.
Thanks
