The wireless light comes on but it doesn't pick up anything, I always use the same spot and it always has a connection for me to use. I'm not sure what to do anymore does anyone have any ideas on what I should do?

Turn off the printer and open the printer back door. Use a spot light and give look inside properly. Make sure there no paper. Some time small part of the paper creates the problem. So you can do one thing after open the back door, top side etc make the printer upside down etc. So if anything inside that's will come out. After cleaning again connect it with PC and turn on. Now give a look. If you face same problem then Un-install the printer driver and software from the PC. Then restart the PC and Printer both. Now connect the Printer with PC via USB and install again the driver & software. Then try to print and let me know the result.
Your obviously having a network configuration issue. Go into Network icon, set up a network connection, make sure you have Wi-Fi and that your laptop is picking up the signal then manually set up or scan for the wifi access point, your laptop should pick up the access point and a name should appear for that wifi spot. Once that is done then you can rename your access point with your name or HOME whatever you like, its hard to explain through here.
Make sure that your wireless adapter is enabled and your wireless radio is turned on (sometimes on a laptop there is a small switch that can accident ly be turned off). Also ensure that your wireless router is on and functioning (I am assuming you are trying to access a home network and not a wireless hot spot somewhere).
If you have another wireless device try that to see if you are picking up anything.
you can, but it depends on the wireless standard that the hot spot is using. if the wireless network that you are connecting to only uses a standard, you will not be able to connect. newer wirless routers uses a/b/g and draft n standard for their wireless.
Sometimes the wireless card will pick up any signal it finds, like your neighbors..go into control panel and network connections and take a look if there are other signals being picked up. If so there will be more than one connection showing. Click on your connection and that should set it to automatically always connect to yours and not someone else's...if the wirelss card was not functioning then you would not get any signal at all...finally try starting your laptop next to your router and see if that works better, there may be some interference in the house not allowing you to get a strong signal..good luck. Please rate this solution.
Signal strength is varies depend on your position,
Hardware type, wireless provider line-of-sight (how
many obstacles that blocking the signal), and other
Make sure you connect to the same wireless spot.
Or at least go to places with wireless spots and compare
If you never have a strong signal from at least 5 different spots
(make sure you check it's the top 5 best spots you find,
ask others who connect to the spot also to make sure)
then you go to your repair shop and ask them why.
But, if you at least have 1 strong signal then
your spot just having a weak transmission.
Most routers especially the smaller ones do not have anything that resembles good ventilation.If you touch the router and its anything more than luke warn then its pretty clear that your router is overheating and unless you take a few steps could be at risk of being damaged beyond repair. My suggestion is to make sure its standing in a position where minimal router surface touches anything else.Also keep it away from your monitor, pc, desktop and anything else that produces heat. If it keeps randomly shutting off i would even recommend a small fan or a replacement. that said I am assuming its not your service provider.
