    I have the same problem and have contacted HP several times to find out where the wireless switch is located or how to access it through the fn keys. HP stubbornly refuses to tell me this information unless I renew my warranty. Given the information, the fix can be made. I had the same problem with a Dell and with ATT Tech Support was able to resolve the problem, but they couldn't resolve the same problem with my Presario because apparently you need to access the wireless switch.

Just had a new wireless card fitted and I am trying to connect to my router


I recently purchased a new wireless card for my desktop, it was a Linksys 54g with speedbooster but after the switch the networks I was connecting to (Free wireless from my apartments) will no longer connect. The old card that I had was just an offbrand card which used the microsoft zero connection tool to configure, this new card attemps to use the software included and ive tried to switch between the two different connection configuration tools both can detect the routers but when trying to connect it does not even get to the aquiring access key stage. the router is not passworded so I guess I was just wondering can this new card not connect to the router maybe due to brands? possibly the router is belkin or something of that sort and this linksys card cannot connect? I had before gotten it to connect at the very good 54kbps or whatever the number is but it would not let me access internet and then said limited/no connectivity. I also tried to change the settings on my wireless card and set them to 802.11b only, 54g auto, 54g LRS or Performance but all had the same result, I switched the default channel to match that of the router as well still nothing.

Acer aspire one 8.9 wireless wont work


First make sure the wireless card driver in the computer is installed and the wireless is enabled and working.
To connect to your wireless router, it needs the router’s wireless settings configured and also needs the wireless cards in all the laptops and or computers to be configured with the router’s wireless settings. Then the laptops and desktop computers can communicate with your wireless router.

To set-up and secure the wireless router from unauthorized access, follow these steps: -
1. Connect the wireless router to your computer with a LAN cable.
2. Start your browser and enter the router's configuration URL IP address.
3. Enter the router setup, login and password
4. Change the admin password
5. Go to the wireless settings and change the default SSID and turn off SSID broadcast.
6. Setup encryption key the strongest is WPA2 (if not then WPA).
7. For further security measures - turn on MAC address filtering and enter the MAC address of the wireless cards on the computer/s you want to connect to this wireless router.
8. Record the settings you have made and keep it in a safe place and Save the settings.
9. Configure the wireless cards on the computer/s with the SSID and encryption settings of the router.
10. Remove the LAN cable between the router and the computer then the computers should be able to connect to the router wirelessly.
To access the Internet you need to connect the DSL or cable modem to the WAN (Internet) port on the wireless router.

Belkin N router reads everything but the computer.


If your router was working before, and suddenly stopped working, then you probably need to reset it.
Unplug the router from power, also unplug all network cables from it.
Wait about 30 seconds.
Plug power back in, followed by network cables.
Wait some more seconds while the router restarts.
Only the Power light and the Status light should be solid.
All others in use must be blinking, which means they are in use.

Try connecting to the internet with cable first, then try wireless.

It should work.

Wireless switched off wont connect


On the side edge or on the front edge of the laptop there should be a wireless switch or a clear button, when you activate it the wireless light should light up amber/orange.

Sometimes my laptop does not conncet to the internet service home


Is wireless turned on? There is a slider switch on your laptop that turns wireless on and off. If it's on you should see a little blue light, if it's off it's amber-colored.

Next, make sure you're wireless security settings match those on the router.

Do you have a wireless adapter program on your laptop or are you using the windows wireless setup (if you R-click on the wireless icon in your system tray -down by the clock- and you select, "Connect to a Network" you should see available wireless networks. If there is a message that says Windows cannot manage your wireless connection, then you're using a 3rd party wireless manager. You need to find out what it is and if it's running it needs to be configured to work with your router.)

Multiport w200 wireless goes to blue_screen with belkin G+ router


http://www.fixya.com/support/t612983-blue_screen_hp_wlan_multiport_w200 seems to have the solution.

It says:

Rollback the W200 driver to version 1.00C. Subsequent drivers are incompatible with XP SP2.

Unfortunately, WPA support came in version 1.00E, so W200 + XpSp2 = no WPA support. :(



I removed my wirelss drivers and compaq wireless client software, then installed the older driver from http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareDownloadIndex?softwareitem=hb-13082-1&lc=en&cc=fr&dlc=en&os=228&product=235687&lang=en which is sp23031. This seems to have worked. s.gif
