Virus, what fun. I do know how to get the windows Wireless Manager working again if it is displaying "Windows cannot configure wireless settings" Do as follows: Open the Wireless Manager> Click Change advanced settings> click the tab labled Wiless Netoworks and make sure the box in the top left hand corner is ticked. Then the Wireless manager should be working. If the virus is still causing you greif, download and install AVG Free 8.0. It's a free virus protection software that works a charm.
Thats just my advice.

Have you download any software recently? Often times, this can alter things with your network, (irritating, yes I know), something like a new security program...... Try disabling the security and then try enabling it...... Hope this helps :)

My laptop won't connect via wireless, and can't even find the network. It used to work fine until a few days ago. I have a netgear DG834G router


You will need to check the wireless settings of the router
is there any computer connected to the router ?
If yes then you can open the router set up page on that computer.
Router set up page is the page where you can check all the wireless settings of the router.

No wireless connection with my laptop


hi thanks for using fixya!

First of all, make sure that you have your internet connection from your provider.

Try to restart your pc or laptop, disconnect the cable from your router and pc, then install them back again, try to do a reset. Make sure that your router is turned on and working properly. Did you change any setting beforehand?

If you need further assistance, let me know!

Please rate me! thanks!

How can i check if my belkin router is connected to the computer properly.my sons laptop is no longer getting the internet from the computer and router downstairs it was perfect a few days ago


Try rebooting the router and the laptop. Go onto the laptop after rebooted and try a repair on the wireless network. Typically the wireless icon will be in the lower right hand corner on the task bar. If you right click on it, you should see a repair option. Another thing to check is an actual on/off switch for the wireless on the laptop itself. Most laptops have a switch or button to turn wireless on and off. If that doesn't work then you can try going to command prompt and typing in ipconfig /flushdns. There are more options if none of that works - write back if its still an issue! Thanks.

first off your downloading unknows software from the worst place just because its says its this and that could be miss leading you to downlaod a virus the virus did its damage just because you removed it! it did not remove the damaged cause by the virus only the virus itself the guide books wnt help because they did not tell you to download from emule so it all on you to find a repairshop that ccould correct and fix the protocal stack witch may be damaged but many factor can be the problem the other way is to back up your data and do a system restore and restore to a day the computer worked fine that should solve the problem! good luck

If your laptop is not "on range" this problably respond to:

1) Interference problem or bad signal.
2) Bad hardware devices (cards, routers etc)

Check your wireless router (turn it off in a while and see what happen)
Check your wireless card adaptor in your computer (My PC >> right click Properties >> Hardware >> Device Manager >> Network)

Let me know how it is going!

Have a great day!
