Wireless internet connection

Everytime I need to restart...or start up my laptop...the internet connects for a moment and then I lose the connection. It says its not connected to a network and when I try to connect to a network...it says there are none available. I get my wireless internet through my fathers d-link. However...the odd time..if I'm quick enough sign into msn or something online, and I play music from my music file, it will stay connected. I also lose my connection and have to start all over again if my laptop hibernates. I end up haveing to play music on repeat with the mute on to avoid losing my connection.

Netgear wifi router


1) does it lock up completely or will it work hard lined when wifi fails?
2) do all devices wireless fail or just a single device?
3) do you lose connection to the wireless completely or keep the connection but lose access to the internet? (confusing but very different to me)

in the end you could narrow down the problem but if you have already reset to factory defaults and set back up again and again then it may be time to retire that old router.

How to connect to always automatically connect to your SSID


Ever turn on your computer and try to connect to the internet? Ever see all the many SSIDs in your neighborhood listed in your wireless radar or your "Windows Wireless Connection". Then you'd scroll down to double click on your SSID so that you can connect to the internet. Imagine doing this everytime you have to connect to the internet. Wouldn't that be annoying?

The Objective
The objective of this Tip/How-To is to have you turn on your computer and connect to the internet automatically via your SSID (Wireless Network Name). Hence, you wouldn't need to manually find your SSID everytime you need to connect to the internet.

Pre-requisites or Must haves for this Tip to work
  1. A computer with a wireless adapter
  2. A wireless router
  3. An active internet service
  4. This tip is designed for Windows XP. I will post one up for Windows Vista and Windows 7.
  5. This tip is designed to work with Wireless Networks (SSID) that do not have any passwords or encryption.

Active Tip Dictionary (throughout this TIP)
SSID
is the technical term for your broadcasted network name. This is basically what you will see listed in your WIRELESS NETWORK CONNECTIONS manager.


To make your computer connect automatically to the internet via your SSID, we will need to manually tell your computer to connect to your SSID and then we will need to save this setting so that your computer will automatically connect to your SSID everytime you turn on your computer.

Let's Begin.
Start your computer by turning it on.

Click on your Start Button.

Move your mouse over to Control Panel and then left click on it.

Double click on the Network Connections icon.

Double click on Wireless Connection. Now in the picture above you see Wireless Connection 3 but on your screen you should see Wireless Connection.

Now click on Properties.

Click on the Wireless Networks Tab.

Now scroll up and down under Preferred networks until you find your Wireless Network Name (SSID). For me, it's called linksys therefore I will select linksys.

Now click on Properties.

Now click on the Connection tab.

Under Automatic connection, click to check "Connect when this network is in range". This will tell your computer to connect automatically to your Wireless Network Name (SSID).

Click OK to save this setting.

Click OK again to get out of the Properties window.

Click OK again to get out of the Wireless Connections window.

Then click Close to close out of the Wireless Connections window.

And there you have it, you have setup to automatically connect to your Wireless Network (SSID) everytime you turn on your computer.

Now restart your computer and give it a few seconds, and voila, you are automatically connecting to your Wireless Network (SSID). Now you can surf the internet. You can set this on all your computers at home that have a wireless card.

Remember to give me a good rating and vote for me. If you require further tips and tricks, feel free to contact me through the contact box. I will post up your tip.

Cannot get wireless service


Power on the laptop computer and wait for the operating system to boot.


Right-click the wireless Internet icon in the lower right corner of the desktop.

This brings up a new pull-down menu.


Select "View Available Wireless Networks."

This brings up a selection of different possible Internet connections that are in range of the computer.


Select the wireless Internet connection you want to use.

If a password is required, you need to type it in now.


Wait for the laptop to connect to the Internet.

In a moment the computer is going to state it has successfully connected to the Internet.


click Start, Run type in cmd and click Ok to bring up a command prompt.

Type ipconfig /all and press enter and see if it gives you an IP address similar to 192.168.1.100.


Check your wireless connection properties under My Network Places.

Right click the wireless connection icon and choose properties.


From there make sure Internet Protocol {TCP/IP} is listed, highlight it and click properties. Make sure Obtain an IP address automatically is checked and Obtain DNS server address automatically is checked.


if still no joy


Let's first try to start the wireless service i.e. WLAN AutoConfig service manually. To do this, login to the computer as an administrator.
1. Click Start, type services.msc and hit enter.


2. Locate WLAN AutoConfig service, double click on it to open its properties window.


3. Under General tab, change the Startup type to Automatic and click Start button.


4. Click Apply and then ok.

hope this helps

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!

My computer experience errors, suddenly hangs up, freezes whenever i do video calls..


This may not be with the computer, it could be with your internet provider. If you have a bad or unstable internet connection, then a minor glitch or quick loss of connectivity will cause you to lose the call, even if the glitch is almost unnoticeable. If connected wirelessly, then try a cable and hardwire directly to the net, a wireless glitch could do the same.

Vista/router/wireless connection


Make sure that all the wireless cards are set in the properties to obtain an ip address automatically, dissable the wired lan adpter connections as this can confuse the router. Restart all the pc's and then right click on the wireless pc icon in your task bar and then click view wireless networks and make sure that you are connected to your network and that the internet is available, known as local & internet in Vista. open up internet explorer, go to tools, internet options and delete browsing history cookies and temp files and then refresh the page as the proxy server will need to refresh.
