Sony vaio incompatible with samsung mobile wireless adapter


You need to install the driver for your internet so that you can connect to the internet. It would be great if you contact your internet service provider to help you set up your wireless connection.

You can use RadarSync to keep all drivers updated.

My internet keeps connecting and disconnecting whenever I try and get online?


Thank you for posting your question here.

I suggest that you go to safe mode with networking to test your internet connection there. Safe mode is the basic operating system interface of your computer thus disabling any advance softwares which might be affecting your connection now.

To go to safe mode, do the following:

Restart your computer and keep tapping F8 until you see the options to go to "Safe Mode with Networking".

Highlight safe mode with networking by using your arrow keys. Press enter.

Once you are in safe mode, try connecting to your internet and observe if the problem is gone. If internet is good, then there's an update or software change that affected your connection.

You can fix that by doing a system restore. Think about the date when you had no problem with your internet. and do the system restore.

Start > Programs > Accessories > system tools > system restore

Select the date when you had no issue yet and let it restart. Check.

Another possible reason is an outdated network adapter driver. This happens when there are changes in the software. You can update it manually which takes time maybe 15 minutes or more or you can install Radarsync and let it update all the outdated drivers in your computer. You won't have to do anything at all. All driver updates will be taken care of.

Another possible issue is your internet service. If all of the above possible problems are covered with no fix at all, then you better contact your Internet service provider.

I hope this helps!

If you have any questions, please drop me a line and I'll get back to you as soon as I can.

I cant open my internet explorer..

first you must have an ISP Internet Service provider contract which will provide you with a modem and leads you can choose either a dial up,usb,or an ethernet connection to connect to the internet or if you have a laptop you can choose a wireless usb modem which can work on a desktop aswell once you recieve the modem just insert the disk provided and follow the prompts to set up your new internet connection
during the setup process you will be asked for a password I suggest you make a log of all pass words used outside of your computer incase of memory lapses
or if this is what you mean
you might have put in the wrong password or user id check to make sure you have put these in correctly first make sure the caps lock is on/off what ever applies to your user and password id that you provided to your ISP
make sure your routers settings are correct ie:password user name,firewall settings to allow your internet to connect also test the lead/s whether usb or ethernet you might check your modem first to make sure that you are getting a connection
last resort ring your ISP internet sevice provider get them to check your modem for internet access online

hope this helps

I have a Dell Inspiron 6000 w/ window xp. I show my wireless connection on the signal is excellent but when i click internet explorer its says its connect to internet - i dont have working offline clicked...

Try connecting to another wireless connection... if it connects to another connection and you get to the internet, then it is something with your wireless router or modem. Your PC can "see" a wireless connection, so it is NOT PC hardware.

It sounds like you can connect to the router, but cannot go through the router to get to the internet. Probably a simple issue with your modem or router. Try power cycling the modem, and power cycling the router. Then restart your PC and try connecting again.

If all that fails, try installing Mozilla Firefox and see if that will get out to the internet. It may be a problem with Internet Explorer.

Ubuntu 8.10 - acer aspire one 150-Ab wireles not working

Ahhh, Ubuntu. You may need to go online and find wireless drivers that will work with your wireless card.

On an unrelated note, OpenSolaris has an option on it to download all of the compatible drivers for your computer when you first hardwire it to an internet connection, so if you keep having trouble with ubuntu, you could always try switching over to that.

Trying to set up wireless laptop. Instructions tell me to input

The wireless connection device on a computer is used to connect to a wireless router that is connected to the Internet via an Internet Service Provider (ISP) and or to your home or the network where you work. You can also use it connect to a wireless hot spot (like an Internet cafe) for Internet access.

Your computer will need a wireless device either a built-in wireless card, or a PCMCIA wireless card that plugs into your computer's PCMCIA slot or a USB wireless device.

If you want to connect into the Internet wirelessly in your home, you need a wireles router that is connected to a cable modem or a DSL modem and to a ISP.

The wireless router needs to be configured (change the default settings) the SSID and encryption (WEP or WAP, WAP is a stronger encryption method) etc.
The wireless card needs to be configured with the same settings as the wireless router so it can communicate with the wireless router.

For configuration information refer to the wireless router and wireless card/device manuals.
Whilst the settings of these devices are similar between the various manufacturers, the methods they use to configure varies and you need to be precise in giving make and model of the devices, your Windows system and computer to assist us to give you detailed advice.
