Gateway sx2865-ur11p can't find networks


Double check the laptops wireless switch. They often have a feature that allows you to completely disable/enable the wireless aspects of a laptop. Windows will not tell you it is disabled always and just tell you it can't detect any signals.

DOESN'T DETECT WIFI


The wireless feature on a Gateway computer allows you to connect to a network without the hassle of cables. This allows you to browse the Internet conveniently wherever you are. Gateway computers rely on Windows operating systems, which come with a built-in feature to manage your wireless connection. This feature makes turning off your wireless connection an easy process if, for a moment, you prefer to connect to the Internet using a wired connection.

Click the Windows "Start" menu and click the "Control Panel." Click Network and Internet Connections > Network Connection, if you are using a Windows XP Gateway computer. You should see your wireless connection. For Windows Vista and 7 Gateway computers, click "Network and Sharing Center" from the Control Panel and click "Manage Wireless Connections." You should see your wireless connection. Right-click your wireless connection and click "Disable" to turn it off. Close "Network Connections" when you are done.

Is there anything changed on the wireless router? You may need to contact the one who is in charge of the router. Or, you can check the network connection settings and figure out whether you are connected to another wireless network now. Sometimes it is automatically detected by your computer that one wireless network is not available and another one in the list is working so it will switch over.

I assume you might have degragged the drive because of some irratic behavior not affecting your wireless card. Is your laptop detecting any other wireless networks? Restoring your system should have taken care of that, but when did you install the router, recently? And if you're not detecting the router, do you know for sure that the wireless part of the router is working? Also, there is a wireless card on/off switch on many laptops- make sure it didn't get moved to the off position. Since you defragged your system, this makes me think maybe some other problem is going on, but without more information, there's not much I can guess about. If you have a neighbor or friend with a laptop, see if they're getting your modem's signal, then go from there. Good luck, crazy problem.

I have a HP Compaq NC6000 laptop. Cannot get the 2200 BG wireless card to detect a wireless network even though one is available. It says it is installed and working properly. Any suggestions?


These are very flaky wireless adapters make sure you have the hp 2200 bg wireless drivers setup correctly.

They will appear as working correctly in device manager but do have connectivity problems.

Also make sure that wireless zero config service is started.

Another method would be to connect and setup through Intel proset utility

We need to know how we can do the conection to wireless network. We are only conected by ethernet cable but we need to be conected wireless. We have two laptops at hope.


your laptop must have wireless adapters and you should be using a wireless router or a wireless access point. if you're already using those devices, your laptops should automatically detect the wireless signal (look for the wireless icon, ususally it's located at the bottom right hand corner of your screen if you are using windows but if you're using mac, you need to enable the airport) and you just need to connect to it (note: you should enter the correct wireless password/network key if it's enabled on your wireless router).

hope this'll help you but if you have other concern, just give the exact model of the wireless router/modem/access poitn that you are using and the wireless adapters installed on the laptops

ciao!

I bought an Acer notebook (Aspire 9920) back in December. My ISP manual says that the 'Wireless Network Key' should be on the base of the notebook on a coloured label. This doesn't appear to be the case....


A wireless network key is used to join to a wireless network. Wireless networks are created by routers and/or access points. In order to obtain the key so you can log onto the network, you must have access to the router's settings or be given the key by someone who can access the router. To access the router, you type in it's IP address into your internet browser. If it is password protected, you will need that as well. Once in the router settings, you can set many configuration options, including the wireless network password or passphrase and encryption type.

Again, if you are joining to a wireless network, the KEY is determined by the router, not the laptop. This is how multiple wireless devices are allowed onto the same network: they all use the same key.
