Check the bios of the laptop to make sure the network card is enabled (at the BIOS hardware level)
check the FN + (F#) switch to activate the network adapter. for example, IBM\Lenovo is FN + F5 to activate the bluetooth and network adapter cards. In many cases, these settings are separate from the driver and software settings on the computer itself.

Look at this thread here. Although in this example someone bridged the wireless connection, all you have to do is follow netizen's advice and fix your Local Area Connection.

If you have any more questions or the description is not clear to you, just come back here and leave a comment. We take it from there - I'm happy to help.

I am trying to connect wireless network, but unable to connect my wireless, showing my signal is very good of that wireless connections but it's connection with other non secure wireless network. But when...


what i had to do was connect my ethernet cord to the computer with the wireless adapter. disconnect the adapter. go to belkin and download the updated driver and software for the adapter. DO NOT use the software that comes with the adapter as it is outdated by the time you buy it. make sure you remove all traces of the adapter and previous software and restart your comp before downloading and installing the new, or there will be file conflict issues. also, make sure your router configurations are correct. make your own ssid, use wep and hex key. when you make a 10 digit password it will be transformed into a 10 digit hex key. make sure you write it down and correctly enter it when using your adapter to connect to your network. if at all possible, try to avoid a belkin wireless adapter. they are cheap for a reason. i dumped mine, bought a netgear, went through the exact steps i described above, and all has been great. occasionally it will disconnect, but windows repairs it. if everything is not set up right, it will not repair the connection. it took me 5 12 hour days of research, trial and error, etc., but i got it all down and squared away. fgb_73@yahoo.com if you need further assistance.

A network cable is unplugged


OK, in order to solve this problem, I will need more information:

1) What is your operating system (i.e. Windows XP? Windows Vista?)

2) Is this a laptop or a desktop computer?

3) If it is a laptop, is there a switch on the case that turns on and off the wireless ability? Check your user manual - it might be as simple as turning on the wireless switch.

4) If it is a desktop, what kind of wireless adapter did you install?

I'll be able to help more when I get this information. In the meantime, here are a few things you can do:

First of all, you need to delete all of the duplicate connections from Network Connections. They won't really hurt, but they're not helping either. To delete them, just right-click on them one at a time and choose "delete."

Next, you need to understand what the message "a network cable is unplugged" refers to: this has nothing to do with wireless. If there is no actual hard-wire cable connected to your computer, the port (that's the opening that you plug a network cable into) will tell Windows that it is empty. This results in the message "a network cable is unplugged." You can ignore it, or - if you plan to use this computer with a wireless connection only - you can right-click on the connection in Network Connections and choose "disable." This stops the message from appearing, and can be reversed (enable) at any time.

I look forward to hearing from you.
