Look for a switch on the laptop that says wireless lan. If there is none open the start menu>contro panel>system>Hardware tab>device manager and look for a wireless network card. If it has a yellow exclamation you need to update the drivers. if the device is not in the list have the computer search for new hardware. Then you will have to install the drivers. I need to know what the hardware is before i can find drivers for you.

Cant connect Verizon Wireless Router


Hi! Try to restart your router. If it doesn't work, try to restart your computer. If it still doesn't work, make sure that you don't have a power on/off for wireless on your laptop. If you have that button, turn it on/off and wait to see for a reaction from the laptop. If nothing happens, try to check the laptop's conectivity to other wireless devices. I hope this will work! Have a nice day!

Wireless card on packard bell laptop not working


I believe your problem is the network key, you changed it most likely. And you are now locked out of the network. The "key" in your computer must match the "key" in the access point (wireless router). WEP is a security protocol that runs on the wireless link. The 169 number tells me your wireless adapter can not create a link between it and the wireless router. So you are not connected. You'll need to get the "key" from the wireless router. Try entering 192.168.0.1 (that a guess on my part as to the number, generally this is the gateway address) as a web address on your desktop and look at the security settings in the wireless router.


Or else, restart the router and try to connect it again.. Anyone of this should work

Can ping but cant connect to the internet


you may have to go to your routers ip address and see if you cant configure it to work or maybe your router can only support a certain number of wireless devices.

Problem with Toshiba wireless conection


Hi,

If you have your router set-up with security enabled, you should try to re-set the router and then go back onto the routers "control panel" and re-setup the security. You can find out the correct way to reset the router and the correct address to enter into the browser to access the routers control panel by going to the router makers website and checking under Support

Cannot maintain wireless connection


Try manually add the network. If the problems continue, I would turn the laptop in for repair/replacement (if it under warranty).
