    Hi trav998,

    Perhaps try re-posting this in the 'routers' section, under your router name and model number. Also, please let us know your operating system, and if you have tried anything to fix the problem so far.
    Hope this helps you to get an answer.

If you turned on security on your router you should check the follow:
1. did you hide your SSID? if so, you can either turn it back on, or manually add it to your favorite networks.
2. did you use WPA encryption? if so- does your wireless card support it?
3. does your router broadcast with G while your card can only work with B or A?

Be sure your Wireless card is activated on your PC.
Check manufacturer instruction on How Physical activate it: HP Compaq 6710 has a touch switch on top of the keyboard. Lenovo T62 has a slide switch on front side
Some other Think pad use FN + F5
If you do not see any network be sure WLAN is on than check your WLAN card for wireless characteristics (Control Panel/Network characteristics/Wlan interface properties in General tab identify your device (connect using) May be you have to configure according to your environment

How do i connect to internet


You have a wired ethernet card (not wireless). You need to plug the ethernet cable into the card. An ethernet cable, also known as an RJ45 cable because its ends are RJ45, looks like a fat phone plug. Phone cords have 6 copper conductors while an RJ45 has 8. You plug one end into your ISP's hardware, which is probably a cable modem or a DSL modem. Plug the other end into the back of your computer. When you plug in the second end, both computer and modem should get a green light to show the cable is connected. If you don't get green lights, try another cable. These cables sell online for $2 to $10 based on length and run from 1 foot to 300 feet. Make sure your control_panel => network => adapter settings are set to "obtain IP address".

I hope that gets you further. Its a very vague and early stage you are at.

How do I turn on my wireless connection


If your computer will not connect to a wireless Internet signal, one of the first things to check is whether your computer's wireless switch is turned on.
Many laptop computers have a switch located on the exterior of the computer that controls its ability to connect to wireless networks.
This switch can be accidentally turned off, preventing users from connecting to the Internet.

Determine if your computer's wireless connectivity has been disabled by viewing the network icon in the lower toolbar on your computer's desktop.
When there is a disruption in your computer's Internet connection, the icon will have a red X through it. For further information, go to the computer's Network and Sharing Center where you can troubleshoot connectivity issues and view available wireless networks.
If the computer isn't recognizing any wireless connections (and you're sure that there are wireless signals in your area), the likely problem is that the wireless switch is turned off.
Locate the wireless switch on your computer.
It may be located on either side of the laptop or along the back or front.
If you aren't sure whether your computer has a wireless switch, check the user guide that came with the unit.
Determine whether the switch is currently in the "On" or "Off" position.
The switch will be clearly labeled.
Push the switch in the direction of the "On" position to ensure that it is turned on.
If the switch was already turned on, see if there is a keyboard combination that will activate your laptop's wireless capability.
The key combination for your laptop will depend on your computer's manufacturer, but will generally involve a combination of the Function, Control or Alt and the F1 to F12 keys.
Check your user manual for your computer's key combination.

How to go to wifi


Wi-Fi technology enables wireless Internet and network access through public and private hot spots. These hot spots are widely located in homes, restaurants, bookstores, coffee shops and other businesses, so you can keep connected wherever you may travel. To connect to Wi-Fi, you must have an enabled wireless adapter on your computer. Most modern laptops and many desktops have this adapter built into the system, but many lack such capabilities. However, a wireless adapter is easily installed via USB, which allows you to connect to available networks through Windows 7.
Enable your wireless adapter. Most laptops have a hot key labeled with a radio antenna. Hold the "Fn" key and press this key to toggle wireless on or off. Desktops likely have a physical antenna on the back of your computer that is typically always on. If you don't see such a hot key or antenna, you need to acquire a USB wireless adapter. Attach the USB wireless adapter to an available USB port on your computer. Windows 7 will automatically install the necessary drivers for most adapters. If it does not, insert the CD that came with the USB wireless adapter into your drive and choose to install their drivers. Restart your computer if you do not see a wireless icon in your Windows 7 notification area. Click the wireless icon in the Windows 7 notification area and click the network name to which you want to connect. If this is your home network, the correct network will likely be the one with the strongest signal. Click "Connect" and enter the wireless security passphrase, if required. Only secured networks will ask for a passphrase, but some public networks will require browser authentication instead. Open your browser and navigate to any website. If the hot spot requires browser authentication, your website request is redirected to an information page. Follow the instructions on this page to get Wi-Fi. This may entail clicking "Accept," entering a given password or entering a cell phone number. After authentication, attempt your website again to verify accessibility. Hope this helps

You can connect your computer to Internet if you have a Wi-Fi card in the computer. You need to connect the modem ethernet cable to the netopia wireless router and then connect to internet through wireless connection. First task is to configure wireless network connectivity on your netopia router connecting the 1st ethernet port to your pc lan card port, you will need the netopia instruction manual for this. The wireless configuration will be through a browser window(like internet explorer/mozilla firefox). This may take roughly 20 -30 minutes.

Can not connect to the internet


check your firewall setting.
check if your connection is working or not, by connecting to other pc if possible.
check if dns etc config for your internet is ok, for this you must call you ISP and check if there are no issues with you connection.
showing connecting cant mean actually connected, it wont work unless confuguration setting are good.

Can't Connect to the internet.


Hi!
1. I think your connection is temporarily blocked by university. (Have you used P2P clients like bittorrent, Vuze. Usu. Uni block ur account because of excessive data usage). Call them and make sure they didnt clock ur access.
2. Mosttimes installation of new antivirus, firewall mess up your connection. so then you have to uninstall and then reinstall your firewall again.
3. Can you please go to one of your friends place and try to log in using non Uni/ school network. If it works it again prove your account is suspended.
4. Go to HP website using other computer. under hp customer support you can find latest Wireless and Lan drivers for your laptop. Then download it and install it to your computer. Then It will sove your problem.
If non of these dint work please let me know.
I will try my best to help!
