Why won't it connect to my computer?


As long as you have service and the jetpack is turned on it is transmitting a wifi signal. On the bottom right hand side of your computer screen is an internet icon--look where your time display is and this icon is just before the time. Click this internet icon and it should recognize the Jetpack signal. If it does, it will say "connections are available" right click on that and it will show available connections including the jetpack. Right click on the identified jetpack signal and then click on "connect" and enter the security key and now you should have full internet access. If, when you click on the internet icon, it does not say "connections available", then click on "troubleshoot" and let the device tell you what the issue is preventing connection.

What is wifi


Hi,
Wireless local area network is a local area network that uses high frequency radio signals to transmit and receive data over distances of a few hundred feet, uses ethernet protocol.

In simple word allow you to surf internet without any internet cable connection, Wi-Fi enabled device such as a personal computer, video game console, smartphone or digital audio player can connect to the Internet when within range of a wireless network connected to the Internet. The coverage of one or more (interconnected) access points called hotspots, can comprise an area as small as a few rooms or as large as many square miles. Coverage in the larger area may depend on a group of access points with overlapping coverage.

In addition to private use in homes and offices, Wi-Fi can provide public access at Wi-Fi hotspots provided either free-of-charge or to subscribers to various commercial services. Organizations and businesses - such as those running airports, hotels and restaurants - often provide free-use hotspots to attract or assist clients. Enthusiasts or authorities who wish to provide services or even to promote business in selected areas sometimes provide free Wi-Fi access.

No internet signal, but full service.


You don't indicate your configuration or model, but assuming that you have a high speed modem (like cable or DSL) what usually works is:

Shut down your computer, unplug the cable modem and the router from power (remove the connection from the adaptor on back, no need to go to the wall unless that is more accessible) . Connect all three - computer to router, router to modem. Make sure that the ethernet cable between the router and the modem is in the router uplink port and that the computer is plugged into one of the four ports that look alike. Wait 30 seconds - plug in the modem. Wait another 30 seconds, plug in the router, wait another 30 seconds and boot the computer.

If this doesn't work, repost with what did happen. If you have a different configuration than I assumed, please post a clarification giving your actual configuration including model numbers.

What is a local Area connection? My laptop doesn't work, but my desktop does?


Local area connection is the wired network interface card on the computer. On a laptop you'll see the port on the side or back. If you have a internet cable conencted to the port you'll be able to access internet on a wired conenction. Most likely you are conencted wirelessly on the laptop so it shows the local area connection disconnected.

Have just bought a computer second hand and have just got internet running with 100% signal but cannot connect because we cannot find local area connection to access files


As dragoness1 says, you don't need a LAN to connect. Right click wireless icon in system tray (bottom right of screen), select "show available Wireless networks". Select one and click connect. If they're not from your own Internet service, they may be protected by a password.

Finding a local area connection


Is this a wireless connection?
If yes than most of the times the problem is that the signal is weak, try to put your Router/AP to a better place and see if you can connect, netstumbler can give you a hand in this, not sure if it's working under vista or not, but under xp it's perfect. My experience ist that what you need to have at least is 15 For SNR for your Router from the place where you are trying to connect. If it goes under 10 it will drop you down.
Better SNR means stronger signal and that's all that matters with a simple wireless connection.

No internet connection on web browser


The problem may be in the router itself, prehaps a faulty product. But I am more inclined to think it is the outdated copy of windows 2000 which you use. In my view 2000 was second to Windows ME in terms of faults, errors, recoginizing hardware, and what have you. I would take the router back to walmart and test with a new one, but if that does not help, then it may be time for you to upgrade. Have you tried getting the ps3 online even without the computer having an active connection? Give that a shot and if for some reason the ps3 grabs the signal then it is time to give in for sure man. And watch the router when you try to connect the ps3 to see if it even attempts to grab the wireless connection, the wireless light will start blinking rapidly if it does.
