    Is your laptop plugged into a AC Adapter? Some laptops disable the internal network card when they are unplugged in order to save on power consumption.

Why wont my pc stay online

It is probably a problem with your wireless internet adapter. This could also be a result of your modem failing or your internet provider having an overload on their servers. Try restarting both your computer and modem.

Im trying to set up a wireless modem, but i dont no how to r wat the switch looks like to turn on the wireless

usually there is not a switch to turn wifi on a modem you need a wireless device to try to access its wireless network
you need to plug a wired computer into your modem and type in default ip address 192.168.x.x they are slightly different for each brand EI: linksys Dlink telus:
so go into your router settings and you should have a wifi tab somewere in there you can set your SSID (what your wifi will be called) for something you will remember and maybe disable security untill you get your wifi device connected then add what ever security you like
when you try to access your wifi network witha wifi device you wifi light will come on your modem

Can't connect to internet on my IBM T40 think

You need to supply some more information, are you trying to connect wired or wirelessly? For either first see if your network adapters are installed. Right click on "my computer" either on desktop or start menu. Then choose properties then hardware then device manager this is slightly different depending on your operating system but you need to get into the "device manager" Google it if you cant find it. i.e "how to get into the device manager in windows vista" Once in look for the "network adapters" tab drop down the + sign and see if they are both listed and there are no "!" going thru them, if there are then you need to download drivers, if not and they are installed properly then to connect "wireless" you should see a series of bars by the clock on the right side of the taskbar some computers have a switch to turn the adapter on or off some have a key combination such as fn+f2 or f5 etc., there will be a wireless icon on the key to identify it. If on then when you left click on the bars you can choose veiw available networks, choose yours and highlight it and choose connect, if it is a secure network you will need your network key or passphrase. Wired: just plug it in to the ethernet port and it will try and connect to the network. If you are getting a limited or no connectivity icon you must reset your modem and router in this order. Disconnect (power) to your modem and router if cable unscrew coax cable also. all lights out screw cable back in, then power on your modem..WAIT for all lights to come on solid (with dsl the dsl light should be on and solid not blinking) once your modem is up then plug in your router wait for all lights to come on. Thsi should put your computer online. If not, open internet explorer then go to tools / internet options / lan settings make sure that proxy server is NOT checked. If it is uncheck it and choose "automatically detect settings" above it. Most likely if it was checked you have some rogue phony antispyware on there and your computer needs to be scanned for issues. one last thing you can always right click on the intenet icon by the clock and choose "repair" wired or wireless it will reset the adapter and correct the problem. I think I covered everything not knowing your OS

My acer 5520 will not allow me to access the internet via wifi?

1)Turn ON the wireless feature on your laptop. It will be a combination of function keys.
2)Remove preferred networks
3)Assign DNS server address manually in Wireless Network Connections Properties
4)Try to scan for wireless networks in range now with/without security
5)Try Internet explorer, else mozilla firefox, else google chrome.
It will surely go online wireless

D-link range booster installed on main PC, still

Check your wiring:

Cable-modem (or DSL-modem) <---> WAN-port on Router

LAN-port on router <--> network-port on your desktop computer

Follow the instructions that came with the router,
to access the built-in web-server "inside" the router.
Run the "Wireless Networking Setup Wizard" to configure your wireless network.

Now, try to access your newly-defined network from your laptop.

No internet access with wireless


First of all check the DSL cable must be in WAN port of the linksys router. if it is done then do the following.

Actually DSL modem and Linksys router are conflicting with their IP class. Means DSL and Linksys routers are using the same IP class of or

You must change one's IP class because both are routers and if they having same class they cant communicate. Unplug the WAN cable of the linksys. open browser and put ip or any one which works for u in the address bar. Username and password hopefully be admin admin or just admin and password blank field.
when you access the linksys router configuration page then come to LAN configuration. If there IP is then change it to and if it is then change it to Save configuration and reboot your laptop and plug dsl cable to linksys WAN port.
Hope now this will work.

Wireless signal intermittent

First make sure you have the latest update for your bios and wireless device, your os is probably non preload so clean any access connections utility provided by ibm, rather than using the ibm thinkvantage access connection make sure to use the windows own utility to control the wireless device

Adding laptop to home system through Belkin59G .

Good Day!

I believe you are trying to connect wirelessly using your laptop to your wireless router(Belkin 59G). Try to hook it up first on your computer and check if you can go online.

If yes, then that's the time you go to the router's set up page and check the wireless security of the router so that you can connect wirelessly.

If not, then you have to reconfigure the router and the modem. If your internet service provider is cable you can just turn off the router then the modem and waitfor 5 seconds. Turn on the modem, wait for the lights to turn on then the router. After that, check if the computer will be able to go online when connected directly to the router.
