My lenovo keeps on disconnecting for the internet


Troubleshooting your wireless connection via your Lenovo computer is not a task that requires familiarity with wireless networks or a vast level of computer troubleshooting knowledge.


You can repair Lenovo wireless problems ranging from browser setting errors to hardware connection issues and the only item you will need on hand is the owner's manual that was shipped with your router.


You will not require any additional devices or tools and should not have to resort to the expensive aid of a technician.


Launch the web browser you normally operate and check the "Work Offline" settings.

Click on the top toolbar where it says "File" and scroll down to where it says "Work Offline."


Ensure this selection is not checked, otherwise it will impede the operation of your wireless connection.

Click on this option to uncheck it.


Look over the connection made between your modem and wireless router.

Both devices have an Ethernet port on the rear.


It looks like an oversized telephone cord port. If these ports are not occupied by an Ethernet cable, connect one end of the cable to each device.

This connection cannot be loose.


Check your records for the password to your Lenovo wireless setup if you have a secured connection.

(A secured connection is recommended).

If you cannot find your password in your records, you will need to reset it.


Find the manual that shipped with your router and extract two important pieces of information. The first is the special web address the manufacturer provided for you to set up your router's settings; the second is the default password for your router.


Enter the web address from the manual into the web browser and click "Enter."

When prompted, input the default password from the wireless router.


Choose a new password for your wireless connection now that you have access to the settings.

Additionally, ensure the kind of wireless security you are using is "WPA." "WEP" is another available option, but it is an older encryption type and is technically inferior.


Click on the wireless network icon on the right side of the bottom toolbar in Windows on your Lenovo computer.

A list of wireless networks within range of your Lenovo computer will appear.


Click on the name of your wireless network and input your new password when prompted.

Look to the bottom right of your Windows desktop.


You should get a notification stating that you have successfully joined the network.


Hope this helps

I cannot enable my wireless adapter.


go to start, control panel, network and internet, then double click your network adaptor (your wifi router) click properties, write down your I.P address given to you on screen. then open internet explorer, and type that I.P address into the search bar and press enter. you should now have access to the main router settings. it could be your routers wifi setting is turned off. just go through the menu and look for it, the menu depends on the router so i cant say which menu to go to, but its normally under advanced tab. dont change anything else unless your sure you know what your doing!!

Unable to connect to internet despite connection confirmed


Improve the FixYa experience for everyone by voting.

I'm going to provide you with some generic approaches in an attempt to solve your problem.

First: Microsoft will perform a complete systems check for you in three clicks with their FixIt app. CLICK HERE and Microsoft will fix (repair) any Windows related problems that might be causing your problem.


Second: It is important to connect the modem to the router before you configure the modem in order to verify communication between them. If the cabling is incorrect, the rest of the process fails.

As a rule, external modems are built with a female data communications equipment (DCE) DB-25 port for connection to a controlling device such as a PC or a router

Connecting the modem using the network cable to the wrong port of the router (other than the WAN port) is easy to identify. You can easily troubleshoot the problem. In some cases, you may correctly setup the wireless router connection but you use the wrong cable type in connecting the modem to the router. Cross type UTP cable must be used in connecting the Ethernet port of the modem to the WAN port of the router. But this is not always true. Today, many types of wireless routers (and any LAN Switches) embedded their Ethernet ports (either WAN or LAN ports) with Auto-sensing type port (auto-MDIX LAN). It means that you can use either cross-type or straight-through-type network cable for the Ethernet port connections. The system will detect the cable type and automatically adjust the ports signal accordingly.

Just purchased a , HP xb3000 Notebook Expansion Base cant get the component output to work with my TV, how can I get it to work to expand my monitor? thanks


Hi orlandobusa1,

If assuming your connection is via VGA cable, because that's the only way I can see for you to get external video, connection should be a VGA cable from the docking station to the TV. Once you have cables plugged in, all you need to do is to set external display from your video card control panel.

Most computers have a video card control panel, please follow instructions below for the settings:

1. Right click on your desktop and choose graphics control panel
2. Once windows is open, look for multiple display settings, and there you will see if the TV is detected or not
3. then you should see a setting there, to either, extended or clone your display.

Solution provided are basic for setting up external display, however, my solution would not be applicable if the cables or ports used are different.

Hope this works!

Thank you for using Fixya,

My Name is Pam I have a model# WRK54G Router I want to hook it up to my lap top I don't have : Wireless-G Notebook adapter Two Set-up CD-Rom I do have Symantec Norton Internet Security...


Pam;
If your laptop does not have a built in wireless adapter, you cannot use the router wireless. There are ports on the back of the router that you can connect your router to the laptop. The image below shows ports numbered 1-4. These are for the cable to your computer. The other port needs to be connected to the modem from your Internet service provider.

You will need a length of RJ45 Cat 5 cable from a local Best Buy or computer store. This may be difficult since you live in a more rural area. The cable can be purchase online from Frys.com. Measure the distance you want to use the laptop from the router and buy the length cable you need.

Buying a wireless notebook adapter will allow you to connect to the router without this cable, but the costs are higher. If you decide to buy one, get a USB modelmoz-screenshot-1.png.

it will be easier to use and choose. The router will also have to be setup to allow the connection to be made wirelessly. This can be found in the manual online at linksys.com.

My laptop cannot hookup to the enternet with my dlink wireless card


To connect to your wireless router, it needs the router’s wireless settings configured and also needs the wireless cards in all the laptops and or computers to be configured with the router’s wireless settings. Then the laptops and desktop computers can communicate with your wireless router.

To set-up and secure the wireless router from unauthorized access, follow these steps: -
1. Connect the wireless router to your computer with a LAN cable.
2. Start your browser and enter the router's configuration URL IP address.
3. Enter the router setup, login and password
4. Change the admin password
5. Go to the wireless settings and change the default SSID and turn off SSID broadcast.
6. Setup encryption key the strongest is WPA2 (if not then WPA).
7. For further security measures - turn on MAC address filtering and enter the MAC address of the wireless cards on the computer/s you want to connect to this wireless router.
8. Record the settings you have made and keep it in a safe place and Save the settings.
9. Configure the wireless cards on the computer/s with the SSID and encryption settings of the router.
10. Remove the LAN cable between the router and the computer then the computers should be able to connect to the router wirelessly.
To access the Internet you need to connect the DSL or cable modem to the WAN (Internet) port on the wireless router.

Connect ethernet cable


It sounds like you are setting up your new laptop to connect to your cable modem. If that is correct, your laptop should only have one ethernet port. The other port should be for the modem, but it does look very similar to the ethernet port. I would highly suggest getting an inexpensive router to place between your laptop and your cable modem. The routers come with detailed instructions on how to connect it to the cable modem and the computer. This will provide 2 things for you. The first is ease of connection, and the second is protection from all of the bad stuff on the Internet.

Speed touch 576 - lost CD. Download online possible?


You can download the software for your router here: http://info.aol.co.uk/help/broadband/router_drivers_install.html

There is also a guide there for installing the software right underneath it!

When you run through the setup , it will actually help you setup all of the security , such as the WEP...so that should clear up that problem for you.

If it does not , you can also login to the router to change this information by doing this:
  1. Open up your web browser (Internet Explorer/Firefox)
  2. Enter the address 192.168.1.254 in the address bar
  3. You will be prompted for a username - "Administrator"; leave the password blank
  4. You will now be on the home screen of the router, click the link for "Configuration"
Both ways will enable you to change the routers encryption so that you know the password.....best of luck!
