The WEP key is configured in the router's wireless settings.
Go the the router's wireless setting to get this key.

SOURCE: trying to connect to wifi

The WiFi software that is embeded into the OS does not work very well. Fortunately digitalgadget.com has a download that somewhat fixes this problem fairly well. The new download is not totally goof proof, but you can work with it.

Go to: http://www.digitalgadgets.com/netbooks/update.html and download the indicated update. You can copy it to a thumb drive and connect the thumb drive to your Sylvania , find it under My Computer and then copy it to your
desktop and run it from there.

SOURCE: My netbook is connected and the signal strength is

The signal strength is of the LAN modem. Only when the internet connection is provided to the LAN modem, you will be able to access internet on your notebook.

SOURCE: dns error eventhough wifi connection

wifi connection indicates the local connectivity with your modem or router, it has nothing much to do with the router as long as you have a stable ip and a good hardware communication between your lap and the router. DNS represent the server at far which takes care of the DNS zone, to which you connect to get the packets while the lap communicates with another system. Check if the same error is shown if you try another DNS machine. Also ping and see if the DNS ip responds... Good luck.

Yes in that case it is your router. You need to adjust your setting, could be a web filtering, client filtering, or even time limit filtering that has been turn on. Check your router settings.

I have a Dragon Touch tablet. won't connect to wifi after WEP is entered and accepted/saved.


Are you still using WEP security? Most devices today no longer use WEP as it is inadequate for serious security. Most devices today are using WPA2 security. If you are no using the proper security you will get an authentication error even if the password is correct.

My touch hd could not connect to my home wifi although the connection is visible/detectied.


Even though it is visible and detected the signal strength may not be strong enough to establish a connection. Various factors affect connecting a device to the internet with a WiFi connection, including overall signal strength (G Routers are the weakest), distance from the wireless router to the console and obstacles such as walls and ceilings that interfere with the signal. If you're using a G router and you have your device is too far away or, has obstacles in the way, it will not connect. You should use an N-Router if there is a significant distance between the console and/or there are obstacles. Try connecting right next to the router and see what happens. Also, make sure you are putting in your router's WEP key in correctly.

My Ipod touch is not connecting to a wifi which has been working up until 2 nights ago, it still says it has medium signal strength, but if i open the itunes store or any other sort of internet connection,...


Have you had a software upgrade? I had exactly the same problem with a brand new 3rd gen iTouch and it turned out to be a problem with the itouch and the wifi encryption. Mine showed it was connected to the network but wouldn't access anything (invalid argument etc). I tried everything but no joy. Eventually I fixed it by changing the router's encryption from WEP to WPA2-PSK. Fixed it like magic. Where there had been no router or DNA data before, they were suddenly filled in. The key was different but was still on the bottom of the router. I had to re-enter the key on my wireless laptop2_bing.gif but that was a small price.

You can get into the router set-up page through your web browser. I found a guide on You Tube.

Good luck!

Wi-fi connection does not work


go to settings and wifi...look for your network and tap on it.
Join your network and if it is secure it is asking for the WEP key which is on the label of the router.
Enter that kep and it should join.
if it is truely an unsecure wifi you should be able to get right on by joining it.

You may be seeing full signal but it may be your neighbors or next door

Good Luck
