Can't connect to Wireless?
Check your Device Manager to make sure your Wireless card is working properly. Right click My Computer, choose Properties>Hardware>Device Manager.Click the + sign next to Network Adapters. Is the name of your wireless NIC showing? If so, it should NOT have a yellow question mark or exclamation point next to it. If so, it probably needs to have drivers installed or updated. Also, right click the device and if it gives you the option Enable, click that.
Now let's check to make sure the signal is out there.Go to Start>Control Panel>Network Connections. Under LAN or High-Speed Internet, do you see Wireless Network Connection? If so, is there a red X or does it say Connected? If it doesn't say Connected, right click the Wireless Network Connection icon and choose View Available Wireless Networks. Do you see you network name there? If it doesnt'say Connected, highlight it by clicking it once and choose Connect at the bottom right.
If you haven't set up your wireless connection yet, this is the place to do so. Look on the left side under Network Tasks.Click Set up a wireless network for a home or small office. Click Next after the screen opens, name your network (SSID) and assign the security you want.
For your wireless router, are all the lights correctly lit? Your user manual will let you know what those should be. Have you gone into the properties of your router and set it up? This requires typing an IP address into the address bar of your web browser (typically Internet Explorer). Your manual will also tell you what the address, administrator account and password will be.
If all this fails, we'll dig deeper. These are the usual things to check and most often the problem will be solved.

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initially, connect the modem direct to one of your computers to determine if you can access the Internet. If yes, then the modem, the Internet subscription/account and the computer settings are OK. Perform an "ipconfig /all" (less the quotes) inside a command prompt. Note down the IP addresses. Without powering OFF, install/insert the router into the network/system, power it on and check again after the router has initialized itself. If Internet connection is gone, then chances are that the modem and the router both operates a DHCP feature/function. Should this be the case, then disable the DHCP feature/function of the modem and make the WAN IP address of the router to comply with those prescribed by the modem. The numbers listed earlier could be used.

Check and perform preliminary visual or necessary inspection. Pls post back result(s). Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.

    Alternately, or better yet initially, goto Control Panel, Internet Options, Connections tab, remove all entries in the "Dial-up and Virtual Private Network settings (if they would no longer be needed). this is to ensure that the laptop would seek Internet connection through the networking (whether wireless or wired).

You will need to boot them in order of connection. First unplug both the modem and router. Then plug in the Comcast modem and wait for 1 minute till it logs in. Next plug in your wireless router and wait for it to finish its login process. Now turn on your computer/laptop and wait for it to connect. If still no internet, right click the computer icon in the system bar and choose repair. Hope that helped.

Dell inspiron m5030 netgear router


Limited connectivity
If you get a 'Limited connectivity" on you wireless connection on your laptop, it means that the wireless card on your laptop probably did not get an IP address from the wireless router.
To fix this problem, right click on the wireless icon on the Task bar and then click Repair.
This will force the wireless router to issue a IP address to the wireless card on the laptop.

How to find my pass work for wifi


If you are using AT&T as your internet service provider the password might be on the side or bottom of the Modem/Router of theirs. Look for something called Network Key or Network Password/Passphrase.

If it's a wireless router you purchased and installed then you will need a network cable to go from the router into the pc. If you have a desktop it might already have the network cable going from the router to the desktop then use the desktop. You'll need to get into the router's configuration. To do that you'll have to open up internet explorer then type the router's ip address into the browsers address area where you would normally type www. Normally the router's ip address will be something like 192.168.1.1 Once you are into the router the configuration interface will come up. It will ask you for the userid and password. Most times people leave these set as the default that came with it. Once you're in, go to the wireless and wireless security tabs and there you'll see your SSID (the network you connect to) and the Password.

If you don't know the router's ip address, userid or password, you can go to www.google.com and type in the manufacturer's name and support. For example if you have a Netgear Router type "Netgear Support" . On their site for your model number they will have a manual that you find find the info you need. In addition to the 192.168.1.1 type of ip address, Netgear also had something like Netgear.routerlogin

You can also just google "Netgear router ip address" put your router model in between Netgear and router to scale down the search.

You can also do the same thing to find the default userid and password. Just google "Netgear Router userid or Password".

Tryuing to conect a computer to my internet


LOL, how did you forget the security key? OK, lets pray for a little luck here. On some wireless routers and some modems that contain wireless capability the security key will be either on the side or bottom of them on a label. It is called the Network Security Key or Network Password. This is especially true if you have AT&T as your provider. If you have a wireless router that you purchased from a store such as Netgear, Dlink, Belkin, etc. then you will need to use a Network Cable to plug the wireless router into the computer ( it may already be plugged up if you have a desktop computer). On the computer with the network cable coming from the router plugged into it you will open up internet explorer and in the address bar you will type in the ip address of the router. For example the ip address for netgear might be 192.168.1.1 so you would put that in address bar where you normally type www to get to webpages. If you have access to a computer that is already connected to the internet just get on it and go to www.google.com and in the search type for example "netgear wireless router ip address". you'll find the ip address, or you can go to your router manufacturer's site to find the ip address. You 'll also need the userid and password to get into the router, so make sure you google that or get it from the manufacturer's site. Most times the router might be set to the default user id and password. Let's hope that's the case otherwise you'll need to get it from whoever set up your router. Once you're in the router, go to the wireless settings and look for the password. It might be under wireless security or it might just be under wireless. That's all there is to it.

I know it seems like a lot, but it's quite simple. The only thing that might throw you off is if whoever set up your wireless also changed the default userid and password to get into the router. Don't fret you can get around it by clicking the little button on the back of the router with an ink pen and hold it for about 30 seconds. This will reset the router to the factory settings including the password. You'll have to go back into it and turn on the wireless and set a password if you want one to secure it. Also if your internet connection is a PPOE Connection which is what phone companies use such as AT&T then you will have to put in your Network or Internet Userid and Password. Most folks don't know that because they think the only userid and password they have is their email userid and password from the phone company. NOT TRUE.... You'll need the Internet Password or you'll never reach the internet. In fact you might spend time talking on the phone to a customer service rep to get it all set back up. And they won't help you with the router because the don't deal with anything that's not their product. So in short HIT THE RESET ON THE BACK OF THE ROUTER AS A VERY LAST RESORT.

There are many router related settings on NETGEAR wireless router and if these are not configured properly, then issues such as router not connecting to Internet might come up. All NETGEAR wireless router users facing router not connecting to Internet are suggested to verify the router related settings such as access points and reconfigure them if required.

My laptop was wiped clean by IT. It no longer recognizes my netgear router WNR2200 password ADCD292B IP address 75.205.121.194 Serial # 1SL5077200018


Hi jayw452, contact your local helpdesk it could be that the wireless profile for your connection at your netgear router needs to be reconfigured.
Also don't post passwords for wireless connections on the Internet, you may be compromising the network connection by giving all of that information.
Hope that helps.

I have a Dell desktop and a Dell Laptop Inspiron E1705 both run Windows XP Home. My internet connection is Comcast cable. The Desktop runs of the comcast modem and for the laptop I have a comcast router...


Dell laptop will have a dell wireless application that will be controlling the wireless adaptor.
You can open that from Start - Programs (or all programs) - Dell - Dell wireless utility (or in some case intel proset utility). open that and you can use it to connect to your wireless network or you can disable it and allow windows to manage the wireless adapter.

If you have any issues in doing the same please reply to this post.

Wireless connection problem


When you say "IP and DNS settings are correct", can you define what "correct" is? IP and DNS settings change depending on the wireless network they're using, so one setting will not work for all networks. The most "correct" setting you can have is probably DHCP - which is called "Obtain IP address automatically" and the same for DNS. If your laptop has any statically assigned IP information, make a note of what they are, and then change it to DHCP and see if you have better luck. If you have statically assigned IP information, it will allow you to connect to the wireless network, but not provide internet access because your IP scheme and DNS settings are wrong. It sounds like the scenario you're describing.

You may try Mac Cloning if you have Cable Internet connection. If you have DSL Internet connection, then set the router to PPPoE or change its LAN IP or local IP address to a different one; 192.168.2.1, to avoid IP address conflict with the DSL modem.

Hook up wireless interenet


Did you by any chance give you router the mac address on the wireless card? Do you have the comcast version of a netgear wireless router? Any wireless router will do also. Does not have to be netgear or from comcast. You can get online by the network cable right?. Where else are you trying to connect to wirelessly?
