How can i connect an enternet? my phone is Samsung star wifi . or GT-S5263


Mobile devices simply do not have the ability to connect to Ethernet directly. You would need to connect the Ethernet/Internet to a wireless router and connect the phone to the router via WiFi.

I could not connect wi-fi connection in my laptop. i tied to format it.... but i could not do that...... please help me to connect my wi-fi connection


(1)Make sure that your AP router WiFi device is configured properly and the LEDs showing the signals with light are on.

(2)Try to bring other laptops in the range it will tell you if the signals are being emitted and are being caught by other laptops.

(3)If all of the above are true than this might be your problem that you have to turn the Wifi button on on your laptop.If you take a look at your keyboard you will find that there are some extra buttons on top you have to figure out the one that turns on the Wifi receiver.

Good Luck!

How to make vista act as router? without using any outside router !! the inbuilt wifi syatem should act as router..


Yes well IF you use two network cards, a WiFi Adapter & an Ethernet Adapter, you can do this, now with a WiFi adapter, as you say, What you do is connect to the internet on the PC, and "Share" the internet connection via the WiFi. You set up the WiFi as either an "Access Point" or a an "Ad Hoc" network, if you want to communicate with the "Other" PC's, and have then communicate with you, as well as access the Internet. So setup is simple, using the manufacturers DVD install the WiFi. card, then, Set it up as you wish, the PC's that connect should be in the same Workgroup, have sharing enabled and be passworded too then as said connect to the Internet and the "Other" pc's will be able to "Burrow" out through you Internet, through the ADSL Modem attached to the "Main" PC. Usually via the Ethernet port. You still need to set up an SSID and use a WAP/WEP key for security. on the WiFi card.

Ubuntu WiFi


Your problem description is too brief, but try the following:

- Check if your wifi is turned on (there should be a button on your laptop)
- Check if your external wifi (usb stick, or whatever you have) is installed properly
- Check your IP address, if its in the same IP-range as your router's
- Check your gateway IP
- If you have access reset your router

It should work so far by now, if not:

- Switch to roaming mode
- Try to connect your laptop through an ethernet cable, if it works find out those settings (IP, gateway etc.) and use them with your wifi thing.

If this doesn't help, there is either a problem with your router or the network must be secured.
