I can not conect to my network.wifi is connected.


Getting connected to wifi is one thing; the network is another. I assume you are running Windows of some sort or another. First question is - can you access the Internet? If so, you ARE on the network, but you may not be in the WORKGROUP or HOMEGROUP that the other machines in your network are associated with. Windows XP and earlier machines used a default workgroup title of MSHOME; later versions of Windows defaulted to WORKGROUP. Unless you change them all the same, the devices will not be able to see each other on the network. You also have to enable file and printer sharing if you want to be able to access files from other machines on your network. If you can supply a little more info on what you want to do and what OS versions you are running, we can help more.

My friend gave me a windows embedded ce 6.0 netbook, how do I log in onto my wifi?


Select Connections from the tabs across the bottom. Select WiFi. Find your own wifi from the list of available networks (SSIDs) and select and hold it. Then select Connect. In the next screen, make sure The Internet is selected and click Next. On the Configure Network Authentication screen, make sure Authentication is set to Open and Data Encryption is Disabled and click Next. On the next screen, click Finish. This will bring you back to the Configure Wireless Networks screen. Wait a few moments while your phone connects. Once complete, the status will display as Connected. Click ok from the top right section of the screen then close the Settings window with the x in the top-right section of the screen. Once you've joined a WiFi network manually, your smartphone automatically joins it whenever the network is in range. If more than one previously used network is in range, your pc joins the one last used.

I dont know how to open my wifi application. ive already check all the files that are being installed on my laptop but i never see any wifi. please help me..


I'm guessing this is a windows machine with either windows xp or windows 7 on it. Your wifi connections if you have one can either be found on the taskbar next to the clock. Or in your control panel in your network connections.

Why wont my acer netbook allow me to enter the network centre or to connect to virgin internet either wired or wireless. i'm running linux lite not windows


go to the command line and type ifconfig

find the network adapter you are trying to connect with likely eth0 or eth1 if ethernet or wlan0 for wifi

then type

dhclient wlan0 (or whatever adapter you're using.)

if this doesn't give you an ip address, the virgin internet access point may not play nice with linux.

Wifi connection problem


Windows WiFi Fix,

Windows Zero Wireless Configuration is one of the best programs to run a WiFi in Windows XP or Vista. Most of the other software packages that come with the different adapters have been poor at best in keeping a connection through Windows. Here is the best guide to get you back up and connected.

Windows XP:


Click Start
Right click on My Computer
When a window pops up click on properties
Click on the Hardware tab
Click Device Manager
Click the [+] next to Network Adapters
Find your wireless card and right click on it.
Click Disable
Windows may warn you that disabling the device may make it stop functioning.
Continue disabling the device.
Wait 30 seconds or so.
Right click on your wireless again and click Enable.
Exit the device manager.
Reconnect to your router.
You should now be able to connect to the internet.

Windows Vista:

Click Start Logo
Right Click Computer
Click Device Manager
Windows will ask you about opening Device Manager Click Continue
Click the [+] next to Network Adapters
Find your wireless card and right click on it.
Click Disable
Windows may warn you that disabling the device may make it stop functioning.
Continue disabling the device.
Wait 30 seconds or so.
Right click on your wireless again and click Enable.
Exit the device manager.
Reconnect to your router.
You should now be able to connect to the internet.
