All laptops have inbuilt wireless network cards. You would need to have a wireless access point which has internet connectivity at your home or office. If available, you need to search for the wireless network and get connected. Some networks are secured so you would have to contact the administrator for the key.
Hi, Actually it is an office with 2 different networks. Currently there are two wireless routers (router A connect to network A; and router B connect to network B), then router A with a server set for internet access. The two network somehow link together already, but all nodes in both networks can't see each other(cant share files thru "My Network Place"). All nodes equipe with Windows XP. It’s help u. Good luck! And Thanks.
It should say Local Area Network and Wireless network (if your card is installed properly). Right click the Wireless Network and make sure it is enabled. Then click "View Available Wireless Networks" and choose your network.
If you are trying to setup a secure wireless network, that may be a completely different issue.
First, make sure that the drivers are properly installed and that there is no "splats" or exclamation marks in device manager for your wifi device.
If the drivers are properly installed, you should have an extra "network" icon in your system tray (by your clock). If so, you should be able to right-click on it and view network connections. It will pull up a window where both your LAN (wired) and wifi connections are. If you see your wifi listed, right-click on it and you should be able to enable it, thereby activating your light and your wireless.
If you don't have any of the above ....you need to re-download the drivers for your wifi and reinstall. That should fix you up :)
HELLO. TELL ME THE COMPUTER YOU HAVE ON THE SAME WIRELESS NETWORK.! AS YOUR NEW LAP TOP.!!! IS IT A HOME TOWER.? OR DESK TOP.? OR A NOTHER LAP TOP.? AND TELL ME WHO IS THE ROUTER MADE BUY.? WHO IS THE SERVICE THAT IT CONECT'S TO.? TELL THESE THING OK.?AND WE WILL GO FROM THERE. OK.!!!
A few suggestions and questions to try to isolate the source of the problem:
1. Are you going through a wireless Access Point connected to a wired router, or are you just using a wireless router? Please post the exact makes/models of your wireless devices.
2. When the Internet access dies, can you at least ping the IP of the router and/or Access Point, or the IPs of any of the other computers on the internal network?
3. Check your system log files to see if Windows is recording any error messages related to the connection drops in those logs:
Open the Event Viewer utility in your Administrative Tools control panel.
In the Event Viewer, look through the System and
Application logs for entries flagged as "Warning" or "Error";
double-clicking on any of those entries will open a "details" window with more information about the error/warning. If you find any entries that seem to relate to network errors, post the full and exact contents given in the detail windows.
4. To determine if the problem lies specifically with your wireless connection or with your network software in general, connect the laptop to the router via an Ethernet cable and see if you still experience the problem.
