Most new laptops are equipped with all the components necessary to go online wirelessly to account for the increasing popularity of Wi-Fi Internet.

If you find that you are not able to connect to any wireless networks on a laptop, take a few basic troubleshooting steps on your own before having the laptop serviced.

In all likelihood, you will be able to restore your laptop's wireless functionality and be browsing Wi-Fi Internet in no time.

Enable the wireless card by pressing the radio button, typically located near the top of the keyboard.

Press the radio button until a light illuminates indicating that your wireless card has been enabled and is ready to go online wirelessly.

Test your connectivity once again; if there is still no wireless access, it is time to check for a possible issue with your wireless card.

Navigate to the computer's device manager by opening the "Start" menu and either clicking "Device Manager" from the "Control Panel" window or right-clicking "My Computer," clicking "Properties," and choosing "Device Manager" from the "Hardware" tab, depending on what version of operating system you use.

Look for the wireless card in the Device Manager by clicking the "+" next to "Network Adapters." If you see any item labeled "Wireless Card" or "Wireless Controller," check to see if it has a "?," "X," "!" placed over the name; if it does, you will need to update the software drivers for the wireless card. Contact the manufacturer of the computer for assistance.

Attempt to connect a wireless network other than your home network. Make sure you connect to a wireless network that you are legally allowed to use, such as a free public Wi-Fi hotspot, and that you are not illegally connecting to someone else's wireless network.

If you can connect to other Wi-Fi networks, the problem is likely isolated to your home network and you will need to troubleshoot that.

If you are still can't connect to any Wi-Fi networks after following the steps above, you may need to have the laptop serviced or have its wireless card replaced.

If you get a 'Limited connectivity" on you wirelessconnection on your laptop, it means that the wireless card on your laptopprobably did not get an IP address from the wireless router.
To fix this problem, right click on the wireless icon on the Task bar and thenclick Repair.

Hello rennlugent, there can be "severals things" that may have cause the Computer to lose the "connection."

  • There may have been a 'change' in the Computer [Configuration Settings], without your 'knowledge'?
  • You may have 'Lost' the {Network File Sharing}, which 'Links' all the Computers to (1) one "Network?"
  • The Computer is at a "Different Local?"
  • It may be a "temporary glitch," do to weather change?
  • The "Signal" may be or was 'weak at the time?"
Installing "New" Programs, or 'any' kind of Software; can 'change "Systems Configurations"

I 'suggest' you check in (2) two areas:
The first is;
  • Click on the "Wireless Network Connection."
  • You may have {Two} on the "Taskbar" _809.jpg
  • See: if you are in "Network Discovery / Sharing [Mode].
  • Go to the "Network" shortcut, from the "Start Menu."
  • Check to make 'sure' you are "Sharing the Network Files."
  • The one from this {picture on the right}, is the "Connection [Status] Icon."
  • The {smaller, on the left, is the "Network Troubleshooting Icon"
  • Check (both); one for your Connection Status?
  • Click, on the other for "Fixing the Network Connection."
!Important: Check to make 'sure' the Connection isn't {Disabled}?

If this information helped? Return and give a "Helpful Rating," please!
Thanks, paul7of9

My latitude won't find a wireless connection. Always says that the cable is unplugged. How can I fix this? I just want to be able to connect using wifi and not DSL or a modem. Thanks.

There will always be a cable unplugged if you are using a wireless internet connection, that will refer to your hard wire connection.

First, you want to make sure there is a wireless access point nearby (i.e., a router in your home, or a WiFi hotspot). If you don't have one of those nearby, your computer cannot magically connect to the Internet. You can right click the wireless icon in the lower right-hand corner of your screen, and click "View Available Wireless Networks." This is assuming you are letting Windows manage your wireless connection, otherwise it should be something similar. If you do not see any wireless networks after refreshing, make sure the wireless on your notebook is turned on, and not disabled by a switch or button. Finally, if you still don't see any wireless connections, test to see if any wireless networks are available with another notebook if available, to rule out any problem with the notebook itself.

Keep losing connection

hi there, since no one in your network is experiencing the problem, possible cause would be the wireless adapter of your laptop. try to reinstall your wireless network card driver and observe if you will be getting the same issue. if same issue occured, then you have to call your manufacturer for replacement of the wireless card

Dell pc will not work with linksys router

HI Boston
I believe the wireless card that you have in your laptop is a dell wireless card.

Here are the instructions on how to get your wireless working
Start-All programs-dell wireless-dell wireless wlan card utility-open the window and on the uncheck let this tool manage your wireless.
Please make sure that Enable radio is checked otherwise no wireless networks will be detected by the computer.
Once that is done go to start control panel in the left hand side make sure classic view is what is there. Go to network connection and you would see wireless network connection. Right click and click on view available wireless networks.
click on refresh network list if any of the networks are not seen.
Still no go try to enable the radio of your wireless card by pressing fn+F2 and then try.

if your getting limited or connectivity right click on wireless network connection go to properties, select on the top the tab wireless networks and remove your network from the preferred networks click on ok.

now get back to view available networks and try to connect to your wireless network.

make sure if there is a security on ur network you are aware of the ntework key and its case senstiive as well. otherwise ask linksys to give it to u.

if your wireless says connected check the ip address and post it here . for finding ip address start-run-cmd-click on ok

in the command window type ipconfig and post the ip address here.

alternatively also try updating the wirless card from the site
thank you do post your results and feedbacks if any

System: Compaq presario 2100 Intel. Disassembled the computer to fix the battery/power jack that is connected to the motherboard. My pcmcia/CISCO wireless card is not working since I fixed the computer,...

You can try using Compaq Diagnostics for Windows 95/98 for your model, there is no PCMCIA driver available on HP website for this computer.

If this is not a software problem, then it is probably a bad soldering joint that lost contact on one or more of the PCMCIA motherboard contacts.
