When I switch my laptop on and click onto Internet Explorer it then takes 20 mins before I can open my emails my home page is Sky and I am on Wireless


Without a good technician on site to diagnose the problem, there could be a 1000 things wrong, First verify all cables and power sources, laptop connectivity as well (test it on an other wireless network, friend, office, etc..), shut down all devices (router, modem, etc.) than power up all devices, if still not working, than try plugging your laptop directly to the router with an ethernet cable in one of the ethernt ports of the router, this will tell you if there is a problem with the wireless or not, if you have the same problem connected with a wire, than you can verify your (Internet Service Provider) ISP's connectivity by plugging the laptop directly to the ISP's modem with the ethernet cable, (MAKE SURE YOUR ANTI-VIRUS IS UP TO DATE) as you won't have any firewall to protect you, if the problem still persist than call your ISP for support... if the speed is OK at that point, than you should reset the router to factory default and re-configure the router, if you still have a slow connectivity after that than you should replace the router, (assuming all cables ant power sources are good, the laptop's configuration as well)... now you know why a good technician is 65$/hour

Cheers!

Check if the Wireless computer is connected correctly to the Wireless Router, and if yes then try to access google.com and check if you have that Web page opened or not, if not thenn check the Wireless IP address of the Laptop and make sure it should be in the same range of the router, or else the Wireless computer will not connect to Internet.

Generally all laptops with wireless built in have a shutoff button for the wifi connection. While you need the internet turn the wifi off. When you need to print, turn the wifi on, print then turn it off. It is not the best solution, but it should be a short term work-around. The other option is to attach the printer to your laptop with a cable (usb or otherwise). Turn the wifi off. Add more info to your request if this does not solve your problem,

If it solves the problem, leave feedback please.

Connecting Laptop wireless and Desktop wired to the router


Do you need to see the desktop or just share folders from each other? If the latter then you need to do the following:

Use Windows Explorer and select a folder you want to share. Right click and select sharing and security.

On the sharing tab click on Share this folder. Enter a share name ( I like to enter the PC name _folder name; Rick1_Downloads)

Click on Permissions. If your ok with everyone using the PC's and Laptops having access then highlight Everyone and click on Full Control.

Do this on each PC and Laptop.

That should be it or darned near close.

Trying to connect between cable pc xp edition and new dell vista laptop


the SSID is only the name which your connection is called.
If you have security enabled, you will need to type in the passkey when asked.

First go to internet explorer open it and go to tools>connections tab, then tick 'never dial a connection' and close I. Explorer.

go to control panel>network connections>right click on your wireless connection icon, then go to the TCP/IP line, highlight it, click properties, then select 'Obtain IP address automatically.

Select Ok, then close window, go to internet explorer, then open it up and you may need to click refresh a few times ,but should connect
