My wireless connection does not work. I have a modem and a Belkin wireless router. They work because I used another laptop to verify. When we hooked up the internet, the cable technician told me I had to disable something on this laptop. Since then, I can't get a wireless connection. I have my antenna on and the connection is not disabled. I even tried at several different locations with free wi-fi service (Panera Bread, Starbucks, Heine Bros. Coffee) and I get nothing. Can you help?:(

Re: No Wireless Connection
Let’s check the Wi-Fi card on your PC. Go to "Device Manager" and look if any yellow or red alerts are being displayed under the Network Adaptors. If not, make sure the Wi-Fi card shows up under Network Adaptors. To access the "Device Manager" go to the 'Control Panel", "Administrative Tools", "Computer Management" and select "Device Manager" located in the left side column. If there is an alert, double click on that device to determine the problem, i.e.… device not configured, cannot start this device, etc… Your responses are intended to improve the level of service provided.

Did your ISP Boingo supply you with a DSL or cable modem with a built-in wireless router? If only a DSL or cable modem is supplied and you wish to connect to the Internet by wireless then you need to connect a wireless router to this DSL or cable modem.
You can connect to the Internet using a LAN cable from your laptop to the DSL or cable modem. If your laptop as a built-in wireless card you can to the Internet via the wireless router. If you laptop does not have a built-in wireless card then you can install a PCMCIA wireless card into the card slot of your laptop to the Internet via a wireless connection.
How do you connect your wireless router to your netbook..?
you must have an internet connection with your service provider or isp(internet service provider),...
connect it with your wireless router modem, or modem to wireless router to your wifi laptop,.
make sure power of your modem and wireless router is on there was an ac power cord it needs to be plug...
next in to your laptop install the wifi driver,... to know that it is intalled go to my computer(windows xp/?)right click then properties go to harware tab then device driver look for yellow ? and intall driver if necessary that your wireless connection driver is not install...
if done and install go to start menu then connect to --> show all connection--> wireless connection and done it will connect... sometimes theres a security u need to type wep key,, etc etc..
Check the Device Manager to see if the Wireless LAN device is working and enabled. If not reinstall the Wireless LAN driver.
If the Wireless LAN is OK and enabled then sometimes when you bootup the Wireless LAN card doesn't get an IP address from the wireless router. This usually has a red X on the wireless connection icon and sometime you get an error message "Limited or no connection".
To get the router to issue the wireless LAN card with a new IP address, righr click on the Wireless icon and click on Repair.
You can also power down the router wait 15secs and power up the router again then reboot the computer.
If it still doesn't work you could have a faulty wireless card, see it your friendly computer shop can test it for you.
You need an external WIRELESS ROUTER or MODEM ( provided by AT&T ). After this AT&T router configuration you needs to do configuration at your laptop using CONNECTION SETUP wizard for Wireless Networks & Devices.
Then you can set IP addresses & then you will be connected to it. I hope above steps will help you.
I believe you are trying to connect wirelessly using your laptop to your wireless router(Belkin 59G). Try to hook it up first on your computer and check if you can go online.
If yes, then that's the time you go to the router's set up page and check the wireless security of the router so that you can connect wirelessly.
If not, then you have to reconfigure the router and the modem. If your internet service provider is cable you can just turn off the router then the modem and waitfor 5 seconds. Turn on the modem, wait for the lights to turn on then the router. After that, check if the computer will be able to go online when connected directly to the router.
First, you have to turn on the wireless switch - beside the volume scroll, you will know it because of the wireless icon.
Second, in the task bar, click on the local area connection icon ==> wireless network connection ==>enable
if you do not know the local area connection icon, try to pass your mouse over icons in the task bar, and read the labels.
