If you have setup a security on the router so that a password is needed to access you will need to enter it. If you don't remember, then there should be a small reset hole on the router. Put in a small pin or pencil and hold it in for a few seconds and release. all the lights will proboably come on then do it's reboot cycle. Be sure to read and understand the steps you go through during setup. One of the questions will deal with encryption. Just leave it blank or do not put incryption. The chance of someone using your connection via your router are slim and none. Also by having no encryption will give you a slightly quicker connection speed too.

Just bought acer Z5700 but i have to plug the cable into the router. i thought this product was wi fi what am i doing wrong ?


You probably never enabled the wireless card ..Go to network folder and start the wireless connection ..In there select to connect wireless and teh card will enable the wireless and will show available networks after ..
Also check in the device manager to see if the wireless card is proper installed ..if it is not ..just download and install the drivers from support site ..or install them from the recovery partition or from the disk if you have one .
to get into device manager .click right on computer icon ..select properties than device manager ..In there look for wifi card ..click right on it and select enable ..If it is in yellow it means it has no driver ..and try to click right on it and select update driver ..
Also see that it may have a button for the wireless to be enabled on it ..Im not sure but it may be something similar to laptops..just a button needed to be pressed in order to enable the wireless card without any other intervention ..If the card is enabled it will appear in the tray from task bar (right area ) where all active programs appear ..Right click on it ...and select to show networks ..and select yours and connect ..

Does not connect 2 internet


Are you getting any error messages? Is your computer plugged directly into a modem, or is it connected directly to a router. Is the computer connecting to the internet using a wireless network card? If connected directly to the modem, shut off the modem, wait a few seconds and restart; also reboot your computer. If that does not work, go into device manager If you're running windows xp - it can be found by going into control panel - system - device manager and see if your network card is listed without any x's or other markings which indicate a problem with the device. If your network card is indicated with no markings, and it is not working, try downloading and reinstalling the drivers for your system's network connection device (you can get that from your system's support page). If your plugged into a router, or if your connecting to the internet via wifi, try shutting off and restarting the router. Reboot your computer and see if that works. If not, you might need to download and install a firmware upgrade for the router. This is relatively simple, and the instructions and appropriate download file can be found at your router manufacturer's support page. Try these and see which works. Good luck!

Emachine won't connect to the internet. Ethernet cable, router and modem all work just fine. problem is with computer. Check network adapters in device manager and no problem noted there. Why won't it...


first try to check if your wireless can actually detect a network, if it can try to remove ALLthe network that you have on your wireless network and try to add your network again, if still doest work try to uninstall and re install your wireless driver, if it still doesnt work try to restart your router, if still doesnt work try to do system restore to the point where your wireless was workin fine, lastly if still doesnt work try to contact your ISP for some configuration.

NIC internet connection problem


I would start by looking in device manager for any devices with a bang on them (a bang is a question mark or exclamation point). It's possible that your wireless adapter does not have drivers loaded for it. Usually, before a reinstall you want to back up all your drivers, because this will happen. I can recommend a program called Driver Magician Lite available for download here:
http://download.cnet.com/Driver-Magician-Lite/3000-2242_4-10521270.html?tag=mncol

But since you don't have this luxury, you now want to look for devices in your system that have driver problems, specifically your network adapter(s). Can you connect with an ethernet cable?

Assuming you find the wireless adapter (or unknown device) in Device Manager, you can try these things:
1. try installing a device driver; connect to the internet using a cable for now
2. update the current driver; connect to the internet using a cable
3. remove the device and let Windows "find it" again and reinstall the driver to fix a corrupted driver file

Hi.

This method will hard reset the wireless drivers back to default settings.
What i want you to do is right click "computer" select "manage" and then "device manager", a list will populate, then click on the + sign next to "network adapters" and right click on the wireless adapter and "un-install" the device, reboot the PC and wait for windows to detect the wireless card and install the drivers for it, this will appear in the system tray (bottom right hand side) when its done try to connect again.


Good luck

Hello! I very much doubt that Memory will cause the problem you have. Are you using a secure network? if so you may have to pair it again with the p.c. try this! hover over the internet icon on the taskbar (2 computor monitors) it should show wireless networks available, if not right click on it then click set up network or search for available networks, if this fails uninstall the wireless router in the device manager and reload after re booting.
Hope this helps!

Got a hp laptop with wireless on it the wireless has just stopet working i have to use a usb adapter so that i can go on the internet.can you tell me how to get my wirelss back.thank you.


does the non working wireless card still show up in the device manager?
if so does it show up as installed or with error?

if not is it enabled in the bios?

Also i have seen people accidently turn off the internal wireless card by pressing the little button on the laptop without realizing it or on some laptops the internal card can be turned on and off with function key combination..

On some models when you turn off the internal wireless card with the litttle switch the card will still show up in the device manager as installed and look ok but will not find any networks at all...
and right clicking on the icon and selecting enable radio does nothing untill you phisically turn it on with the little switch

there should be some sort of light or indicator somewhere on the laptop that lights up when the wireless is on..

what model HP laptop do you have?
