Windows XP will assign you the 'network key'. To find this stage, open control panel, then internet options, then choose the 'Wireless Network Setup Wizard". At some point, you will be asked to choose whether to let windows xp or netgear control your wireless setup, I'd personally choose Windows XP as it's usually easier to setup and troubleshoot.
Make sure you follow the wizard's instructions entirely and be sure to write down your 'Key' as this is the only time you'll ever be shown it. Good luck!

Reset the wireless lan >>>>>>>> right click on "my computer" choose the properties tab and then "device manager" click on the + icon next to network controllers, highlight the wireless controller, right click and unistall it, then restart the PC (at this time you may have to reset the modem by disconnecting it for 30 seconds) when the PC restarts it will pick up the device and install the drivers for you.
This should sort out the problem

kind regards

    When you finished reinstalling the network adapters, if it asks for a network key have a look behind or underneath the router for the default network key

No enternet access


Check the wireless router and high-speed modem.

If the two are not powered on, or if the Ethernet cable connected the two is not completely inserted into both connection ports, you are unable to access the Internet on the Acer Aspire One laptop computer.


Activate the wireless Internet connection on the laptop computer.

Right-click the wireless icon on the desktop, then choose "Enable" from the pop-up menu.


Without activating the wireless receiver on the Acer Aspire One, the laptop is unable to detect any wireless network.


Select the appropriate network you wish to connect to.


Your computer may be attempting to connect to a different Internet connection, preventing you from access the network you desire.


Right-click the wireless icon, select "Search for available wireless networks," then choose the network you want to access.


Restart the computer.


The system may have booted and failed to detect the wireless receiver.

Restarting the computer corrects this issue.


hope this helps

Unable to connect to internet despite connection confirmed


Improve the FixYa experience for everyone by voting.

I'm going to provide you with some generic approaches in an attempt to solve your problem.

First: Microsoft will perform a complete systems check for you in three clicks with their FixIt app. CLICK HERE and Microsoft will fix (repair) any Windows related problems that might be causing your problem.


Second: It is important to connect the modem to the router before you configure the modem in order to verify communication between them. If the cabling is incorrect, the rest of the process fails.

As a rule, external modems are built with a female data communications equipment (DCE) DB-25 port for connection to a controlling device such as a PC or a router

Connecting the modem using the network cable to the wrong port of the router (other than the WAN port) is easy to identify. You can easily troubleshoot the problem. In some cases, you may correctly setup the wireless router connection but you use the wrong cable type in connecting the modem to the router. Cross type UTP cable must be used in connecting the Ethernet port of the modem to the WAN port of the router. But this is not always true. Today, many types of wireless routers (and any LAN Switches) embedded their Ethernet ports (either WAN or LAN ports) with Auto-sensing type port (auto-MDIX LAN). It means that you can use either cross-type or straight-through-type network cable for the Ethernet port connections. The system will detect the cable type and automatically adjust the ports signal accordingly.

My Toshiba r15-s822 isn't connecting to a wireless network and the router I already installed the router to my pc even connected an internet cable to it but Internet Explorer wont open it keeps...


Try connecting to the Internet through the ethernet port (via a cable). If Internet Explorer loads the target page then you have a configuration problem with WI-Fi access : The wireless security settings are not allowing the computer to access the Internet.
If Internet Explorer does not connect with the cable then the problem resides with Internet Explorer. Try to reset the defaults. To confirm that download FireFox and use it. Besides you need two browsers just in case one acts up.

Need to configure for wirless setupnew dsl line from one isp to another need to set up router for wireless connection


If you are setting up a new router for DSL connection, i presume that you already know the login credentials to access your router's admin interface. By default, depending on your router's model, you can access and configure it at http://192.168.1.1 or http://192.168.0.1 using a web browser and make sure that computer you are using is connected to the router through an ethernet cable.

Default login credentials:
user name: admin
password: admin (or try also leaving it blank)

When you are at the web interface, go to a link known as SETUP and there you can setup your connection. If your DSL provides you a user name and password, then you can also enter them there. Then save your settings.

To allow internet broadcasting using wifi, go to a link known as "WIRELESS" and setup encryption there using WAP, WPA2, or WEP or any other recommended encryption protocol. Through this, you can prevent other users near your place to use your internet connection without informing you.

I bought acer one mini laptop if i have to connect wirless internet what i have to do do give me the step by step instruction how wirless internet works faisalhasib@hotmail.com


How you connect depends on where you are connecting to.
If you want to connect to your existing internet at you house you will need to purchase a wireless router and connect your dsl or cable modem to your router. You will then have a wireless connection in your home.
If you are talking about connecting to a public wifi connection (like at Starbucks) you will have to be within range to get a signal. If you are at your friends house and they have an existing wireless connection that is secured you will need the access key.

Once you are ready to connect you will need to decide how you want to manage your wireless connection. Usually your wireless cards include software to manage your connection. If you do not have the software or you do not like the software Windows can manage your connection for you. To enable this service you will need to open control panel and then open administrative tools open services and scroll all the way to the bottom and click on wireless zero configeration change startup type to automatic. This shoulbe the only time you have to manually configure this service.
After you choose which program to use for your wireless connection open it and you will see available wireless connections click connect on your desired connection and you should be on.

Wirless connection wont connect to network.


On the WLAN world, exist a encryption key for connection. You will be able to see the "antenna", but until you enter the key you will not be able to access the network or the internet. First, disable the wireless security and try. Once you have verified the connection to internet then you add security. Use WEP.

Tiscali wirless connection issue


Sounds like the router may need a firmware update as the DHCP service is failing to run correctly.

You can however just use a static ip address.
First of all find out the network address in use.
eg. 192.168.0.1 - 192.168.1.1 - 192.168.2.1
to find out, - start menu - run - cmd - ok - ipconfig

1. Log on to the client computer as Administrator or as Owner. 2. Click Start, and then click Control Panel. 3. Click Network and Internet Connections. 4. Click Network Connections. 5. Right-click Wireless Network Connection, and then click Properties. 6. Click the General tab, click Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) in the This connection uses the following items list, and then click Properties. 7. In the Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) Properties dialog box, click Obtain an IP address automatically (if it is not already selected), and then click OK.

Note You can also assign a unique static IP address in the range of 192.168.0.2 to 192.168.0.254. For example, you can assign the following static IP address, subnet mask, and default gateway:

IP Address 192.168.0.2
Subnet mask 255.255.255.0
Default gateway 192.168.0.1

Wirless and modem systems both are different, there is no connection between them.
