I'm confused? Where are you trying to connect? The laptop has a Network adapter problem? You didn't supply your Laptops, Make, Model, your OS?

    The Wireless Adapter is enabled? The disk that come with the device sometimes don't work due to Software/firmware issues. Connect a Ethernet cable and Use the On-Line setup , Take a look on page 10 of this user manual:http://www.atel.com.pl/doc/UM_TL-WR740N....

I am using powerline ethernet adapters from my pc to ps3 was working fine for 12 months uddenly ps3 will no longer connect to internet, however using wifi it will,having moved adapter to ...


A power surge during a storm can damage the powerline adapters, in a heartbeat. This is a very strong possibility and you may need to replace the adapter(s). If it fried one, it can fry them both. Was any other electroonics connected to the power outlets in the home damaged? If so, then you may be out of luck, and need to replace them both.

Can't configure the network with ethernet cable


Hey, you're almost there. The connection between the no-wireless PC over ethernet to the DAP-1360 Repeater is fine. The reason it can't connect to your LAN or the internet, however, is that the repeater isn't actually repeating your Ofir network, it is instead creating it's own, completely isolated wireless network (Ofir_EXT).


The D-Link setup and documentation is confusing, and doesn't have proper instructions for the repeater setup.


Rerun the setup wizard, setup as a repeater, then select manual configuration method.


Now, enter the wireless network name of your the network you want to extend (in this case, Ofir). Then enter the same security and password etc. for Ofir in the following fields, just like you were connecting to Ofir from a smartphone or laptop.
Once that is finished, you should be up and running. If things worked, you should NOT see any new wireless network. There should be Ofir and just Ofir. Wireless repeaters work invisibly, you'll still connect to the same network like you always did, but now it will have much improved range thanks to the DAP-1360. The computer entherneted to it should be networked on the wireless LAN and have internet access after this as well.



Good luck, I hope my instructions were clear. Wifi networking is easy, it's understanding all the manufacturers less-than-intuitive software that makes it hard.

My samsung smart tv won't connect to my network


You need to setup all you computer network to home network not public network because in order to connect you need to have a password which you need for every system in your home. Consider which computer is your main system. Then go to control panel and select networking icon and select network status. Now click on where it says Public Network or even Home Network and re choose home network and right down the code password. Then click ok and you are set. Go to your TV and choose to setup network, then choose to detect network automatically and choose your network. Then type in your password and you are set. Try it now and you should be able to view your photos, videos and so on. Good luck and let me know you you go!!

I cannot connect to the WIFI at work, but I can connect to my WIFI network at home, and other public networks. The wireless network at work is pushed by a D-Link 8200AP with a WAP security, just like it is...


Your laptop cannot connect to your work's wireless network because the security settings (ir WAP) in the D-Link is different to the security setting in your Netgear.
The wireless card in your laptop will need the settings changed to suit the D-Link's wireless settings ie the SSID and WAP.
You will need to change the wireless card settings in your laptop back to the Netgear's wireless settings to connect to your wireless network at home.
Some wireless cards allow you to set up different profiles for different wireless networks which allow you to switch wireless networks easily by just selecting the profile for the network you want to connect to.

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)

My netbook will not go online I have tried my home wi fi and 2 diffrent public wifi


Hi,
try to do the below troubleshooting :
1) Boot up your netbook. 2) Login to windows. wait until windows finish loading. 3) Make suer your WiFi is enable. Search for the button of keyboard shortcut like 'fn' + 'f2' (wifi symbol). 4) Search for wifi network nearby. 5) connect to one of them. 6) Usually, public enable wifi is using a DHCP setup. Go to you wifi adapter setup page and make sure it's already on DHCP mode. 7) You should be able to connect to the wifi network (public DHCP enable) by now. 8) If you still can't connect to the wifi, means its not a public DHCP enable network or you got a wifi adapter problem.
Good luck ;)

Re-installation of drivers is recommended for detection of network adapter, if you dont have updated drivers, then download from ACER web site.

Wireless adapter has suddenly stopped working.


First unplug your adapter and boot your computer. It wouldn;t hurt to reboot it once as well. This should clear out any settings. When it has fully booted up only then insert the adapter into a different usb port. If it recognizes it and works it can indicate a usb problem.

If it finds it but doesn't connect a adapter problem. You can uninstall it and reinstall the drivers and it might work. If not replace. If it does nothing then its died on you and your adapter needs to be replaced.

Most adapters and home network units (wifi routers etc) only last for 1-2 years before they act up or die on you. Very annoying and can be expensive. I have a stack of wifi routers where the wifi isn;t reliable but the rest works. And a drawer full of various wifi adapter that are detected but not connected and a few just plain dead ones. All of them seem to fail at about the same time after purchase.

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.
