Re: laptop says I have no wireless connection
You need to reset your router. It should be a reset button on the back of the router. Get a stick pin and press and hold for 30 seconds. Then after 1 minute. Unplug your cable/dsl modem and router. Plug the cable modem back in first and after 1 minute plug your router back in. Reinstall the software for your router and you should be able to connect wireless with no problem.

If you have a wireless router and it is connected to the DSLor cable modem then -
To connect to your wireless router, the router needsits wireless settings to be configured with the SSID, encryption key etc., alsothe wireless cards in all the laptops/computers needs to be configured withthese router's wireless settings. Then the laptops/desktop computers cancommunicate with your wireless router and access the Internet via the DSL or cable modem.
1.Connect modem to the one separate port of the router on which you would see Internet, Wan or Lan.
2. Connect one of the Four port of the router to the laptop or desktop.
3.Insert the disk that came with the router into the laptop drive and install it.
4. Turn on the wireless services on the laptop by hitting the wireless button the laptop.
5. Now, connect to the available wireless networks.
ok once your internet is resolved you shouldnt need to have any computer hard wired to the router but it should go like this cable from your wall to the modem, then cable from modem to the router, after that you can go wireless all the way just make sure that its all secure and encrypted dont want the next door neighbor stealin your internet
You need a router or a wireless router to do that. If your cable modem is wireless you can set directly via wireless network a connection with your laptop (the laptop also need a wireless card (if dont have any built in))
The connection must be done in this way
ISP ----->> Cable Modem ---->> Wireless Router o Router ----->> Computer ( 1, 2, or more)
occassionally, the wireless router needs to be turned off and on. The are some issues with regards to the stabitlity of these entry level wireless routers. What I do is put a timer at the outlet to reset it every morning. cheers!
I want to help you out. I have some questions to ask you first:
1. What brand and model are your wireless router and laptop?
2. Does the laptop have a built-in wireless card or you installed one?
3. If it's has its built-in wireless card, check the wireless switch of the laptop. ICheck if it is on or off (some laptops sometimes has an on/off switch)
4. Check if the wireless light on your router is on (it's sometimes refered to "WLAN")
5. How many wired & wireless computers do you have and their operating system?
Your physical connections are correct. BTW, can you also specify what port from the modem is going to the router? Some routers have 1 port named "Internet or WAN" and 4 ports for "Ethernet." Check if the modem is connected to the "Internet or WAN" port.
As you ave the modem in bridge mode and also it works ine with wired connection just follow the instruction below for wireless
1.Login in to the router - > wireless settings
2.Configure your wireless using SSID and WEP and save settings
3.Laptop : Using windows wireless client configure the client using the same SSID ,WEP as configured in the router(view available wireless network in wireless properties)
(by default OEM wirelesss client takes over the wireless configuration in branded pc.to disable it and use windows wireless client..control panel ->administrative tools -> services -> enabl2 wireless zero configuration)
14.after all configuration shut the desktop,laptop,router,mdm and pwr them in seq..first modem and then router and then your desktop or laptop
