My seiki tv detects wifi but won't connect. even after i enter the password. how do i fix this?


One reason I can think of for your problem is this: your TV detects several other protected WiFi networks (probably from your neighbors) in addition to your own, and it is likely that you entered the password for your network when trying to connect to another network. To check if this is the case and if you don't know your network's name (actually this is called the network's SSID), do the following: turn off your modem/router, then check what WiFi networks are detected by your TV. Write down the names of those networks. Turn your modem/router back on and see what networks are now detected by your TV. The new one on the list is your WiFI network's SSID. Make sure that you connect your TV to that new network.

Connect brother mfc-j430w printer


CLICK HERE for the support page on the brother website, for that model printer. If the WiFi network you see in the printer network setup, shows a lock, you merely need to continue the network setup and enter the WiFi password (passphrase), for it to connect. You do need the correct password to succeed. Also you can only use one network connection type, at a time. Either WiFi or network cable, not both. Dosconnect any usb cables to be sure.

Can not get to wifi


Wi-Fi technology enables wireless Internet and network access through public and private hot spots.


These hot spots are widely located in homes, restaurants, bookstores, coffee shops and other businesses, so you can keep connected wherever you may travel.


To connect to Wi-Fi, you must have an enabled wireless adapter on your computer.


Most modern laptops and many desktops have this adapter built into the system, but many lack such capabilities.


However, a wireless adapter is easily installed via USB, which allows you to connect to available networks through Windows 7.


Enable your wireless adapter. Most laptops have a hot key labeled with a radio antenna.

Hold the "Fn" key and press this key to toggle wireless on or off.


Desktops likely have a physical antenna on the back of your computer that is typically always on. If you don't see such a hot key or antenna, you need to acquire a USB wireless adapter.


Attach the USB wireless adapter to an available USB port on your computer.

Windows 7 will automatically install the necessary drivers for most adapters.


If it does not, insert the CD that came with the USB wireless adapter into your drive and choose to install their drivers.


Restart your computer if you do not see a wireless icon in your Windows 7 notification area.

Click the wireless icon in the Windows 7 notification area and click the network name to which you want to connect.


If this is your home network, the correct network will likely be the one with the strongest signal.


Click "Connect" and enter the wireless security passphrase, if required.

Only secured networks will ask for a passphrase, but some public networks will require browser authentication instead.


Open your browser and navigate to any website.

If the hot spot requires browser authentication, your website request is redirected to an information page.


Follow the instructions on this page to get Wi-Fi.

This may entail clicking "Accept," entering a given password or entering a cell phone number.


After authentication, attempt your website again to verify accessibility.


Hope this helps

My husband was given an old Dell laptop and it has a Lynksys Wireless Adapter card in the side, model WPC54G, and I am unable to connect it to my netgear router?


Does the laptop detect the WiFi of the netgear router ? If not, plug a PC to the router and access the interface to ensure that the SSID is not hidden.

If the WiFi is detected, the problem might be with the security key used. Again, in the interface, note down the security key, in the wireless section of the router. Then, when attempting to connect to the WiFi, enter the security key as noted (Capital letters if any, etc).

You might also try to configure the WiFi connection manually, without using the wizard.

Another issue might be conflicting software. If a software is installed by the manufacturer of the WiFi component, it may conflict with Windows' WiFi manager. You will have to indicate to either Windows or the software to NOT manage network connections, then use the other (i.e. if you tell Windows not to manage wireless networks, you will have to use the manufacturer's software)

I have an excellent connection to city wifi but no web page.


Windows WiFi Fix,
Windows Zero Wireless Configuration is one of the best programs to run a WiFi in Windows XP or Vista. Most of the other software packages that come with the different adapters have been poor at best in keeping a connection through Windows. Here is the best guide to get you back up and connected.
Windows XP:
Click Start
Right click on My Computer
When a window pops up click on properties
Click on the Hardware tab
Click Device Manager
Click the [+] next to Network Adapters
Find your wireless card and right click on it.
Click Disable
Windows may warn you that disabling the device may make it stop functioning.
Continue disabling the device.
Wait 30 seconds or so.
Right click on your wireless again and click Enable.
Exit the device manager.
Reconnect to your router.
You should now be able to connect to the internet.

Windows Vista:

Click Start Logo
Right Click Computer
Click Device Manager
Windows will ask you about opening Device Manager Click Continue
Click the [+] next to Network Adapters
Find your wireless card and right click on it.
Click Disable
Windows may warn you that disabling the device may make it stop functioning.
Continue disabling the device.
Wait 30 seconds or so.
Right click on your wireless again and click Enable.
Exit the device manager.
Reconnect to your router.
You should now be able to connect to the internet.

I am borrowing my girlfriend's laptop with this card. It works on her home network, but whenever I attempt to connect to any other network, it doesn't work. It detects the wifi networks, but it never...


You can only connect to networks that are not locked. If they are locked you will get a request to enter a username and pass. There is no way around this with out hacking (illegal). You may also be to far if you are unable to connect.

Thanks, Frank Z.

My computer freezes when connecting WIFI adapter


Does this happen if you try connecting it into all USB ports? Try another USB port. Do you know if your USB ports are 2.0?

Can't connect to internet


The issue could be with the wifi connection that your wifi adapter is connected to. If your running a windows based system, go to the system tray and right click on your wifi connection symbol (SSID) and see which network your connected to. Every LAN has its own unique name of their Local area network (LAN), if its not displaying your LAN SSID name but a different SSID name then thats the problem. If thats the case, then once again right click on the wifi connection symbol in the system tray and change the wifi connection to your SSID for "view available connection". Your wifi adapter could be picking up a wifi connection in your area and you do not have access to their LAN.
