    This solution didn't fix my problem. After step 6, when I click wireless, my game goes to WLAN Settings ( scan, enter manually, and automatic.) When I click scan, it says The access point was not detected. This is as far as I can get. Please help.

    When i click automatic, the screen says"press and hold the AOSS button" of the access point until the AOSS indicator starts blinking. Where is the AOSS button?

Wireless connection or hardwired ethernet ?

Which ISP are you contracted to give them a call let them know of your problems or go to another ISP and phone company
Wi-Fi Internet is a popular and convenient way of accessing web pages and other online applications. A wireless router broadcasts an Internet signal, which enables a computer with a wireless capability to access online applications and sites. Problems with wireless connections require a different approach to troubleshooting than traditional, wired Internet connections. If you find that the wireless connection on your laptop frequently drops out, take a few troubleshooting steps to narrow down the issue and restore your laptop's full functionality.

Reset your network by unplugging the power cords of your Internet modem and wireless router. Wait 30 seconds before replugging the power cords. Restarting your computer will allow the devices to run through their full boot cycle. Test your connectivity after rebooting to verify whether it remains more consistent after the reset. Test your wireless Internet consistency on another Wi-Fi connection that you're legally allowed to use, such as a free public Wi-Fi hotspot. If the connection stays consistent when you're away from home, the problem is likely localized to your home wireless network. If the connection drops no matter which wireless network you are connected to, the problem is more likely with your laptop's wireless card or internal wireless device. Connect the Ethernet cable directly from one of the numbered Ethernet ports on the wireless router to one of the Ethernet ports on your computer. This is a useful way of testing whether the Internet connection is dropping altogether or if your laptop is merely losing its wireless signal strength. If the connection stays more consistent this way, contact the manufacturer of the router or of your computer's wireless card to troubleshoot the device. Plug the Ethernet cable directly from your Internet modem to one of your computer's Ethernet ports. Bypassing the router is useful for further narrowing down the source of your issue. If the connection stays more consistent this way, your router is likely the source of the problem and you should contact the manufacturer of the router for assistance. If the connection continues to drop, contact your Internet service provider to address a possible issue with your modem. wireless network card Go to the Start menu and open the Control Panel. In the Control Panel, open the Device Manager. Locate Network Adapters in the Device Manager list. Click on the plus sign next to Network Adapters to expand a list of all networking devices on your computer. Your wireless card should be listed, and most likely a LAN adapter as well. Alternately, you can open the Network and Sharing Center in the Control Panel, and then click on "Manage Network Connections." Find your wireless connection in the list and right-click it, then select "Status." Under the Status menu, click "Details." This will produce a list of information about your Internet connection, including your wireless card.
Test a Wireless Network Card b> laptop or desktop computer that has no built-in wireless capability needs a wireless network card installed in order for the computer to detect and connect to wireless connections. Before you can establish wireless connection, however, you need to make sure that that your wireless network card is working properly.

Ensure that the wireless network card is properly installed in the computer. A wireless network card can come as a PC/PCMCIA card that only needs to be inserted into a PC card slot in your computer, or it may be a wireless PCI card that needs to be installed inside the computer. Wireless PC/PCMCIA cards are usually used for laptops while wireless PCI cards are installed in desktop computers. Install the driver of the wireless network card. Note that if the driver is not installed, the wireless network card will not be able to communicate with the computer. Insert the installation CD into the optical drive, wait for the computer to recognize the installer and follow the on-screen instructions. Finish the installation procedure and then reboot the computer. If you do not have the installation CD, download the installer/driver from the manufacturer's website. Check if the computer can detect wireless networks and Internet connections. Access the "System Tray" at the bottom-right corner of your screen and double-click the "wireless icon." Browse through the list of available wireless networks and then connect to any one of them. If there is no "wireless icon" in your system tray, the wireless card may not be properly installed to the computer or the device may be malfunctioning. If you cannot connect to a wireless connection, ensure that you entered the correct network password (if connecting to a secured network).

Dell Optiplex 745 desktop will not connect to internet


Most desktops need to be connected with a wire to your network because most desktop computers do not come with a wireless NIC (network interface card). If you are not sure if yours has one you can get your service tag off of your computer and type it in the Dell website (link below) under drivers and downloads and look at the original configuration for your system. If you have a Wireless NIC card in your desktop it should connect just like your laptop computers did. If not you may have a defective wireless card.

Wired nor wireless connections for my ps3 wont work


if you setup your wireless in adhoc mode like useing the pc wirless it wont work because ps3 doesnt see adhoc wireless.

and for the ethernet connection is the pc setup right. you have to enable internet sharing on the accuall interface that has internet..
If local area connection 1 is connected to internet and local area connection 2 is plugged into ps3 then under local area connection 1 settings you have to set share this connection and in the drop down menu select local area connection 2. other than that you need to buy a router.

Sierra Wireless AirCard 595U And PS3


I understand that you want to connect the PS3 using the Wireless card and NETGEAR card. Please note that the setup you have will not work for internet access. You can not configure the Air card to work with NETGEAR router. you need to have wih a broadband connection available for this router to connect to internet.

Once you have the router configured with Internet access then you may either connect the PS3 wired or wireless to the router, like you connect a desktop or laptop to the router.

Sierra aircard 875u connect to Playstation 3


Actually, screw sending me the message. It would probably help more people if I just posted it in the forums.
I have a Verizon Wireless Mobile Broadband card plugged into my laptop because no one in my house has a desktop and we never bothered around with WiFi. I assume this aircard you speak of is similar to mine.
First, connect to the internet with your card. For me there's an application I have to run where I basically just open the app and click Connect. If you have XP (which I really hope you do because I haven't tried this on any other OS) open your Network Connections menu. This can either be done by opening the "Start" menu, highlighting "Connect to" and clicking "Show all connections", or by opening the Control Panel from the Start menu and selecting "Network Connections".
In the Network Connections menu, find your current connection. It'll be the one that says "Connected" in gray letters under the title. I don't know if they all are, but for some reason mine was under the Dial-Up category on the list. Next, on the same menu, look for the "LAN or High-Speed Internet" category. You should have a setting there called "Local Area Connection". I have two. You want the one that doesn't say anything about WWAN or Wireless. It should say something about your ethernet card if you leave the mouse cursor hovering over it.
Now that you've identified both settings, right click the first one you found (the one that says "Connected") and click "Properties". Once that menu opens, click the "Advanced" tab. Check the box under "Internet Connection Sharing" that says "Allow other network users to connect through this computer's internet connection." In the "Home Network Connection" box, type the name of the second connection you found in the previous step (the one that uses your ethernet card). On some computers, instead of allowing you to type anything, that box will drop down and show a list of all your connections. Either way, you know which to pick. Click "OK", and fire up your PS3.
Now, at this point I plugged one end of an ethernet cord in my PS3 and the other into my laptop. Your computer might say something to let you know it has established a Local Area Connection. Log in to any Playstation Network registered profile on your PS3 and open Network Settings under the Settings tab. Go to "Internet Connections Settings". I was able to click "Easy" and my PS3 did all the work from there.

Sprint aircard 595U to belkin router model no# F5D7230-4


Try connecting the sprint card to your router's internet port. You will need a usb-to-ethernet adaptor, along with a networking patch cable, to connect the sprint card to the router.

Then either connect to the router with your two computers using cables, or wireless. If using wireless, you will need wireless adaptors for each of your computers, preferrably Belkin brand to ensure compatibity.
