Most desktop computers are not by default wifi capable (barring a few models that include an internal USB wifi adapter in the case.) If you have added wifi to the unit by installing an internal PCI-Card Wifi adapter or plugged in a USB Wifi adapter into one of your USB ports then that capability will be added. As far as a Keyboard command to activate the Wifi, that is usually dependent on the Computer and/or the brand and model of the adapter installed. What brand of Computer and model are you having problems with? If the Wifi was added after it was purchased, what brand and model of adapter are you using?

Can this PC be converted to wireless? If so how? House has wireless thru AT&T. The original ethernet connect portal died. Already jerrymandered a second portal and that has now also gone dead.

The only way for making it wireless is buying a wireless network card/adapter that can be installed in your Desktop. You should look for a PCI/PCI Express Wireless Network Adapter.

The wireles isn't working on my dell 531s desktop. it suddenly quit working. the rest of the computers in the house still function on wireless so i know it is not the wireless this a hardware...

Could be more of a software corruption problem.

Try removing the software for your wireless device in control panel,add remove programs.

Then reboot and reinstall software as directed.

One computer will not connect to the internet

Possible the network card on the computer. Open the control panel on the not working vista pc. Make sure you are in classic view and select device manager. Check to see if there are any yellow exclamation marks, or question marks on the icon beside your network adapters: ethernet adapter or pci controller, this would indicate conflict on the computer. You will either need to reinstall that specific adapter for a disk or usb stick, or contact your pc vendor to repair it.

If the icon beside has a small white circle with a block arrow on it, this adapter has been disabled. Right click on it and select enable to start the connection again.

If this is no help try temporaly disabling your firewall it could be blocking your router connections.

Accidently made my belkin router secured to just one computer

When there is another computer in your house and have also wireless lan connection.
Automatically can detect your Belkin Wireless Router with Name of it. But they are going to enter a passcode so that they can access the internet. And knows you have the passcode access to the router.
That's very easy because wireless lan obtain & detected network available on the area.
Hope this idea can help to you.
If i am helpful please rate me.
Thank you.

Cant connect to the internet with my wifi

If your computer finds a wireless connection in your house, and still won't connect, you probably need to enter the WPA or WEP codes to get through.

Check with your modem or router instructions for finding this code.

If you're just trying to connect on the fly, chances are most wireless points are secured, so if you don't have their access codes, you won't be able to connect.

And, of course, check to make sure your wireless function is even working. I had a laptop that said the port was fine, and I couldn't get it to connect. The wireless antenna inside the computer was bad, and too expensive to fix - so you'll need a wireless PCMCIA network card.

Wireless networking hardware not functioning properly.

Check on Device Manager if it is working properly

Right-click My Computer-Properties-Hardware-Device Manager
Click on the plus sign beside Network Adapter and double-click your wireless card.
Check on the device status if it says it's working properly.
Try to disable-enable the adapter by right-clicking on it under the device manager window.
If it has a question mark, it is most likely driver issues so contact your wireless card manufacturer or PC manufacturer if the wireless card is built in.
