    What make and model is your wireless router?

    What make and model is your wireless card, is it built-in on your laptop or is it a PCMCIA card or a USB wireless device?

    Have you loaded the wireless card drivers?

    Can you see this wireless device in Control Panel - Network Connections?

    What wireless configuration have you setup in your wireless router (MAC address filtering, encryption, channel, SSID, etc.)?

    What configuration have you setup on your wireless card and does it match the wireless router configuration?

Be sure you use same security protocol on your PC than in your WLAN:
WEP or WPA or WPA2 protocol
Passphrase (PSK ) or Password
Use same Key.Passphrase on your notebook as in your Access point.
Check if your Access point/router has access list enabled: either you disable it in your AP either you add your PC MAC address to the list.

Invalid url

Hi ganibanto,

I see that you are getting an Invalid URL on your system.

Have you tried resetting your IP address? you can reset IP address only if you have a wired internet connection meaning if you are using an ethernet cable to connect to the internet.

If you are using wireless, then you will have to mayber reconfigure the wireless settings on your system possibly uninstalling then reinstalling the wireless drivers of your woreless card or maybe you can just delete the wireless network you have on the system then recreated the wireless conenction again by detecting the Router from your Computer and re-entering the details of your wireless network like wireless network security and the SSID info.

I hope this helps.

Have a nice day,

I can't connect wireless how i can do it

First turn the wireless. There must be wireless button or switch in your computer. And there must be led indicator of woreless. And after your comuter will say that wireless networks were found. Select one of them and connect.

If you mean the encription key, which technically is not a password, you may get it acessing to the router page with Internet Explorer. You will need your router's IP and a wired connection.

hope it helps
