Keeps loosing wifi signal


Try resetting your wireless router. Power cycle it through.

Symptoms:
lost Internet access on all devices
unable to go online
no Internet connection on router
router Internet LED symbol is amber
To powercycle your home network:
Turn off the router by unplugging it. If you have a modem and router in one device, turn it off then proceed to step 3.
Turn off the DSL or cable modem for three minutes.
Note: Some modems are equipped with a backup battery. If your modem have one, please remove the backup battery to completely turn off your modem. For common cable modems equipped with backup batteries, please see Performing a full reset of cable modem with battery backup
Turn off all computers attached to your network.
Turn on the DSL or cable modem first and let it boot. Let it complete its connection to your ISP before proceeding to the next step. One of the indications that the modem have completed its connection is by seeing a green light on the modem. If you have a modem and router in one device, proceed to step 6 after it connects to your ISP.
Once the modem completes the connection to your ISP, plug in the router. Let it complete its power on test before proceeding to the next step.
Restart your computers.

Turn on the wireless switch ON in the laptop if it has one. Check to make sure the wireless adapter appears in the Device Manager. Then check the wireless network connections on you computer - it should pick-up all surrounding wireless SSID's. Locate yours and enter the security keys for your modem when prompted. Make sure it is the correct number to get a connection. Also, check your modem settings from one of the desktop computers - there should be a web page for it by using your Internet browser, to verify that its' wireless transmitter is on.

My Aspire 4315 constantly loses it's wireless connection. It will connect with full connectivity, but drop it after a few minutes. It's the only laptop in my office that I have this issue. What steps...


There are a number of things that can cause this. The most common as as follows.


1) Either your computer or wireless modem is being effected by mains interference. Make sure that all power cables are clear of your modem and computer, except those essential to run the units.


2) Your computer is picking up another local wireless modem signal on the same channel. Try changing channels.


3) Your modem drivers need updating. Visit the manufacturer's website and download the latest driver.


4) Your computer is too far away from your wireless modem.


There are numerous other reasons, but it is worth trying the obvious first. The most common of all is mains or power cable interference.

The firewall is blocking the connection. Turn off all computers. Turn off router and modem. In this order, turn them all back on. First modem, wait one minute. Next router, wait one minute. Last, all computers. You should have connection now.

On a Dell Latitude - no internet connection


The fact that the lights are on and that you get wireless signal means that the computer is making a connection with the router, but the router is not making a connection to the internet.
Try a sequenced power-cycle. Turn off the computer (completely off, not hibernating or sleeping), then turn off your modem (if you have one) and finally turn off your router.
Wait 5 minutes and turn it on in the backwards order. First the router, then the modem and finally the computer. If it's still not working, contact your ISP's tech support, there's probably an outage in the area or another problem with your internet service,

My Wireless internet card don't work


i think you are a little confused, your laptop may have a wireless card internally, but you need a wireless broadband or cable router for the wireless adapter to pick up a signal.

A fax modem cannot be wireless and cannot be broadband as you cannot fax using a broadband connection.


Assuming you have a broadband connection you will need a wireless modem/ router or roter connected to a broadband modem, not a standard 56k dialup modem as they aren't wireless or broadband.
