Your problem description is too brief, but try the following:

- Check if your wifi is turned on (there should be a button on your laptop)
- Check if your external wifi (usb stick, or whatever you have) is installed properly
- Check your IP address, if its in the same IP-range as your router's
- Check your gateway IP
- If you have access reset your router

It should work so far by now, if not:

- Switch to roaming mode
- Try to connect your laptop through an ethernet cable, if it works find out those settings (IP, gateway etc.) and use them with your wifi thing.

If this doesn't help, there is either a problem with your router or the network must be secured.

How can i get my wifi working on 21005 easynote


Chances are unless you can find a compatible driver for your wireless card under Ubuntu it won't work.You may be able to install an external wireless card under Ubuntu and have wireless.You could have a faulty wireless card too but if it was working before you installed Ubuntu the driver is the problem

I purchased this tablet a couple of months ago specifically to take camping with me... However I have been at 2 campgrounds with wifi and am not able to connect ... we had a laptop with us and that...


Do you see the networks on you tablet? Ask at the campground where the wifi antennas are and go close. Somewhere in the settings for wifi you should be able to activate wifi if it isnt and then select wifi connection. They might have a login.
Good Luck.
Sorry im not that good with Android.

I can't get a wifi connection on linux ubuntu 10.10


Ubuntu 10.10 for some reason made WIFI stop working you need to connect to the moden or router with a network cable and let ubuntu update itself. Best thing would be to update to ubuntu 11.04 which is the latest version.
Best to you!

How to install a wifi connections in my laptop so that i can use the free wifi spot


Laptops & desktops which do not have built-in WiFi can have a USB WiFi adapter fitted. This will give you access to unsecured wireless networks and free wifi hotspots.

How to connect to the internet using wifi on omnia i900 .Settings ISP ETC..?


Simple. Go to settings and scan for the WiFi APN in Connections. Then while accessing the internet when it asks you for the APN, select the WiFi name. It will ask you for the WEP key if it is secure network. Give that WEP key and you are on. If it is an unsecured network (I doubt very much if it is unsecured) then it will just connect you. Any phone any model, the procedure is the same only the location of the APN may change.

I have installed uninstalled my laptop to the netgear wireless. It won't connect to the secured wireless but only to tthe unsecured It then says TCP?IP disabled for this connection


Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initially, which is the Netgear, the WiFI / AP router or the wireless networking card of the laptop?

Offhand, that there are at least two (2) networks that could be detected by the laptop indicates that the WiFi is both receiving and transmitting (it works and therefore the issue is settings & configurations). Which of the networks is yours; the secured or unsecured?

Alternately, determine the SSID of your WiFi network and the PASSKEY used or the security system used (if one is used in your system/network). Additionally, are you using the Netgear Smart Wizard Wireless Assistant or the Windows built-in Wireless Network Connection?

For the secured system, use the PASSKEY determined as per above; for the unsecured, it may be employing MAC filter, try manually inputting the IP Address, Subnet Mask and Default Gateway.

Postback result(s) / updates.

Good luck and thank you for asking FixYa.

Smart phone


You have to have a SIM, any company, with or without GPRS. The phone will search the WiFi network and ask you if you want to browse the net. You select yes and then it will as you the WEP key (security password). Enter that and you are over the air. If it is an unsecured network (you have to be lucky for that) then it will not ask for WEP key and connect you straight away. I was in New York for two months and carrying my Nokia E61i. No international roaming, too expensive, no local SIm, only my Indian SIM. And I was thru always on the internet. I would stand under a tall building and search for WiFI network. And mostly I would locate an unsecured hotspot. And I was thru.

M300 toshiba connecting to locally, not connect to internet


Dear Shifsa,

Considering the fact that you are trying to connect to a wifi connection which of course is unsecured,
here are some workarounds..

1. Uninstall the wireless card driver.
Go to device manager > click on the + sign beside network adapters > right click on the wireless adapter and select uninstall. Restart the computer it should get reinstalled automatically.

2. try disabling or uninstalling the antivirus or internet security software. you can later on again download the a free software from www.hippo.com

Hope this helps.
Regards,
Anup
