Connect to the internet by connecting a Ethernet Cable to the Laptop and the Wireless Access Point/router. Open the Device Manager, Network Adapters, Click on the wireless adapter, is it enabled? yes or no? Yes, update driver. reboot laptop. Is your Wireless Access Point securied? unplug the wireless access point , wait for 30 seconds or so, plug in, wait for selftest, reboot laptop. You didn't supply the Laptop Make, Model or the OS you are using?
I've had similar problems with wireless cards refusing to turn their light blue until the driver was updated via windows update. Obviously I had to do this using a wired connection. Try connectiing with a wired connection and udating until windows update tell you everything is up to date then restart your laptop and wait for about 5 minutes before you press the on/off button on your wireless. You can also try removing the wireless card (physically I mean) rebooting, shutting down and replacing the card then rebooting again. If you know anybody that has the same kind of laptop ask if you can try their wireless card to see if it's a fault with that. Sorry I can't help more.
I would start my first rebooting the main modem. Once that is up, reboot the wireless router. Once that is uo, reboot the laptop. Try to connect.
If that does not work, eliminate the wireless router and connect the laptop directly to the modem via Ethernet cable and reboot the computer again and see if it works. If it does, then it is something with the wireless router. If it doesn't, i would contact the provider so they can verify that they can see your modem on their network. If they cannot, they will advise you further (hardware/cabling issue). This is all assuming that nothing has been changed on any settings of the laptop, router or modem.
first of all you need to check with your internet provider to see what modem you can use. a wirless 802.11g card (the farthest range) if your provider has a wirless modem i would get it from them. and a wirless modem/router. i use bellsouth wirless dsl and bought the equipment from them. if you have a wirless modem/ router already then you just need the card and configure it.
Did you make any hardware or software changes? You don't say.
Try seeing if your wireless radio is turned on. Most laptops have some kind of switch or Fn key combination that will turn off the wireless networking radio to save power. You might have inadvertently shut it off.
On the other hand, if it's a software thing and it only happened today, try using System Restore in Accessories --> System Tools and go back a day or two. If it's a software issue, that may resolve it.
well first i can suggest trying to reinstall the drivers for the ethernet controller and the wireless card you are using. if that does not solve the problem, then are you subscribed to internet through cable, which is what your router connects to?
