You can start by rebooting both devices, Remove battery from both. Plug in the wireless access point first, wait for the self-test, plug in laptop boot normally. That said, We will need more info. What are you connecting to? Is it secured? Need password? Interference? Distance? Are you able to connect with a ethernet cable? Is there malware on the machine? Virus? etc, etc.,.......etc.

the bars only show your connection to an access point, like a router. Probably you should reset that device (router) and then try reconnecting... Or try connecting the computer up to the router with a cable and see if it works.

Wireless Connectivity problem


You can check the wireless adapter is working properly in device manager: control panel>hardware and sound, under devices and printers, choose 'device manager'. Expand the network adapters menu and find the wifi adapter. Right click on this and click properties. You can see if the device is working properly under the general tab. You can also try updating the driver; from the drivers tab, choose update driver and then choose to search automatically for updated software.
Also, try clearing browsing history and cookies: Go to start>control panel>network and internet, under the internet options heading, choose 'delete browsing history and cookies' restart the browser.

Try rebooting both the modem and the router. It could be that the modem didn't pick up it's ip number when the internet went down. Then try pluggint you computer directly into the modem first to make sure it is setup and working properly. Then plug in the router (to the modem) and the PC plugged in directly to the router and check.

Once you have it connecting at that point then check the wireless settings on both the router and the pc. Then enable the wireless on the pc, unplug the LAN and switch to wireless network on the pc and see if it won't work.

If it works plugged in on the LAN but then not on the wireless then either your configuration isn't correct (ie wrong gateway ip number...gateway should be the same ip number as the router...ie 192.168.***.***) or perhaps the wireless part of the router died. It is possible for the wireless to die and the LAN (hard wired connection) to still work.

Hi!
There are many possible reasons why you can't connect to the internet and answering these questions might help narrow down your problem.
  1. Are you trying to connect to the internet wirelessly or with a wire?
  2. If you are connecting wirelessly, are you connected to any wireless network or did you enter the encryption key correctly?
  3. If you can't detect any wireless network then check if the wireless function of your laptop is enabled or not. That can be found as a slide switch at the side of your g550.
  4. What operating system are you using? Windows Vista, XP?
I hope you will find this helpful.
Thanks!

Unable to connect to the my wireless Internet


Try "rebooting" your internet. If it's fed through a router, disconnect the power to the router, as well as all of the connections, then reconnect them. Re-connect the power last.
Also, try moving closer to the source of your wireless internet. Sometimes the Dsi won't pick up on the signal because it has a weaker wireless receiver than a computer or most devices that will connect.
