Hi

Make it sure that your wireless switch on your laptop is on. If the switch is on but you still can't connect to the wireless network, check if the wireless driver is installed, you may check it in device manager.

1. right click on My Computer

2. click on Manage

3. then look for device manager. If you see a question or an exclamation mark under network adapter indicating your wireless driver is not installed or you may have on other devices. If this is the case,you will need to reisntall the driver.


Keep me posted.

Thanks

I just bought a belkin wireless router. I don't have a home computer or phone. How do I set the up. I also have a "Book" w/info in it. My only computer is a Toshiba mini right now


Do you have a modem??if you have one, try to call your internet provider so that you can register the router that you just bought so that the modem will recognize the router and give internet connection without you configuring anything. After that you can just connect to the wireless network and baam, you'll have wireless internet in no time.

I have a DSL502T ADSL Router,and have bought a new emachines computer. I can not connect to the internet. The computer has a wireless connection loaded but I want to connect by dailup Please could you help...


You are a bit confused with the various components required for Internet connections.
If you have a dial-up connection with an Internet Service Provider, all you do is connect your computer's modem port to the phone line and dial the phone number of your Internet Service provider.
If you are connected to the Internet Servise Provider by ADSL and have a combined ADSL router and modem then you connect the phone line to this router/modem. If the ADSL modem is separate component then the phone line is connected to the ADSL modem and this modem is connected to the router with a LAN cable and the computer is connected to the router with another LAN cable. If the route is wireless and the computer has a wireless card then you don't need a LAN cable between the router and the computer.
If you are connected to the Internet by ADSL, to secure your Internet connection and configure your computer so it can connect to the Internet, please follow my instruction - click on this link :-

Hi, to connect your computer to the wireless network of the router you need to have a wireless adapter. The bluetooth adapter will not work in this case as the router does not communicate with the bluetooth signals.

Purchase a wireless adapter like NETGEAR WG111

Rate it, if it helps.

I have the acer 8.9 inch with a built intnet wireless care. The one that connectst to the internet throutht the air waves Just as if it needs no router or modem, but i cannot connect. What do i do


It does need a Router and Modem. Every computer does. Even if you bought the new Verizon mini pc, it needs the towers signal since that is the router. Wireless just means that you don't have to drag a wire from the computer to the router. You need a wireless router that will attach to the modem for this to work. Otherwise the signal from the computer just goes into the air into nowhere. If you go to stores that have "hot spots" or "wifi" and use your computer, that just means that they have a router that you're signal is hooking up to.

I don't see why not..
are you trying to hook up both computers to your linksys router?
if you have 3 computers now...
