    Are you saying that your laptop can detect a 100% WiFi signal but you cannot connect?

    Well it could be that the signal your are detecting is encrypted. you will need administrative privileges to join your laptop within that WiFi's domain.

If the Wireless connection you're attempting to access is your own, you will need to take some steps to discover your wireless connection's authentication password. If however the wireless connection you're attempting to connect to is not your own, don't continue reading unless the person who owns the wireless connection has given you permission to connect to their network.

Anyways, the easy way to discovering your router's wireless connection password would be to check the router's manuals for the default wireless encryption password. If the password listed doesn't work when you attempt to connect to the wireless connection, or if you don't have a manual, try the hard way...

The hard way requires you to directly connect to your router via a CAT5 (Ethernet) cable. Afterward follow these instructions for gaining access to your router's control panel:

Go to Start>Programs>Accessories>Command Prompt. From here type in: ipconfig
PressENTER to execute the command. A list should be returned listing some IPAddresses. Look for the one associated with, "Default Gatewaty."

Here is a picture.

Afterward open your Internet Browser (Internet Explorer, Firefox, etc...) and type the IP Address associated with the default gatewayinto the address field of the browser. DO NOT add www. or .com.Afterward press ENTER or click GO as if you wanted to visit a website.

Here is a picture.

Onceyou're at the control panel you will probably be asked to log in. Ifyou do not know your login details you can always try the default. Tofind these you can either search your router's user manual or head tothe online search engines entering your router's manufacturer's name,the router's model #, and the words, "default password" into the samesearch request to bring up the default login credentials. For example:

Linksys WRT54G default password

Here is a picture.

If you still can't manage to log in to your router's control panel you will have to contact the technical support department of your router's manufacturer asking them for assistance in resetting the login user ID and password of the router.

Once you manage to log in to your router's control panel, locate the area of your router dealing with the wireless settings of your router. Once you locate that region make sure the authentication type is WPA-PSK and that the encryption type is TKIP. If those options are not available, just use the WPA authentication/encryption type. Afterward locate the region that lists your router's authentication password. Once you locate it write it down or follow instruction to locate it.

Once you have your wireless password written down attempt to connect to the wireless connection using the password you just wrote down. If it works, hooray! If not, try altering the, "Wireless Mode." While, "Auto" is convenient, not all wireless adapters can work with it. Change between the modes attempting to connect to the wireless connection every time you switch it to a new mode.

If for some reason it will still not connect, consider contacting the person who made your router for assistance in connecting to the wireless connection.

Analogue video senders used to send audio and video to other TVs in the home. 3. Microwave ovens emit interference in the 2.4GHz band. 4. Wireless speakers and console controllers can cause interference with the wireless router. 5. Bluetooth devices, newer Bluetooth devices can jump to different frequencies if there is a connection problem. 6. Power cables located near the wireless router can cause dropouts and speed reduction. 7. Fish tanks will cause massive Wi-Fi shadow on the other side of the tank from the wireless router. 8. Depending upon the location of large mirrors will reflect wireless signal away your computer. 9.

My 65" samsung turns off when i connect my laptop


Hi Spence,
Is the TV set to "VGA"? If the TV does not detect a signal, it won't stay on, only go to a sleep mode. Make sure the cable is securely connected to the TV as well. You may go to the settings and check the power saver settings, but I don't think this has anything to do with it, I only offer it as another avenue to pursue.
Best luck
Joe
