If you have wireless capabilities on your laptop, then turn it on and right click the internet icon in your system tray (it should be crossed out to show that you have no connection), click on connect to network and it will show you all networks available. If your wireless router is up and running then this should show your network. Click on your network then click on connect. It will ask you for the password or the wpa key which will be the password that you generated for your network when you set up your wireless router. Type your password in then click ok, then you should be on the net. If your laptop does not have wireless capabilities then buy a wireless adapter and plug it into your usb port download the software that came with the wireless adapter then follow the same instructions above to access your wireless connection.

I hope this helps

How can I connect my notebook to another pc without installing LAN??


A Local Area Connection, or LAN, is generally a small home or office network used to link all the devices in the area. With the advent of wireless technologies, LAN networks are no longer limited to the amount of cords you own. Laptops can connect to wireless LAN easily with their built in wireless adapters. Connecting two laptops together over wireless LAN is also easy, but requires a few special steps to give the laptops access to each other.

1Connect both laptops to the wireless network you wish to use. Once connected, click the "Start" button and navigate to the "Network" menu.

2.Click the "Network and Sharing Center" link. Press the "View Computers and Devices" button. A list of devices currently on the network is displayed.

3.Check the list for the names of both laptops. If both laptops are displayed in the list of devices connected to the network, the devices are connected wirelessly to a LAN network.

Cant get wireless router to work on laptop


First, try to connect your laptop hardwired to the router, if it works fine, its just the wireless configuration. Make sure you are using the correct wireless network key to connect to your wireless network. Go to the Control Panel > Network Connections > Right-click Wireless Network Connection > Properties > Wireless Networks Tab and delete all the names listed under Preferred Networks box. Click Ok. Right-click on Wireless Network Connection again > View Available Wireless Network > Choose your own network and click Connect. If it asks you to type the network key, type in your WEP or Wireless Network Key and press connect. That should do it.

Can't connect to netwoork


Just configure the wireless settings your laptop. Go to Network Connections > Right-click on Wireless Network > Properties. Go to Wireless Network tab and look for Preferred Networks. Just remove all of them and click OK.

Now, On the Network Connections, right-click on Wireless Network Connection > View Available Wireless Networks. Connect to your own wireless network and enter your wireless network key if it tells you to type it. That should fix your wireless connection. Now if your wireless network is not showing, you need to change the wireless channel of your router by accessing the router's setup page using your wired computer.

Unable to connect my wifi laptop to my existing wireless b/band


Your wife's laptop is setup to connect to another wireless network. It must be set up now for the wireless network that you are trying to connect to. This means that your wife's laptop is trying to connect to the wireless network somewhere else. You need to let the laptop look for available wireless networks. It should be able to see your wireless network. It will then require you to enter the password that you have set in your Zyxel. If you don't know the password, call Zyxel.
