A couple things:
1) Get the latest software from the web and use that.
2)Try to find a way in the software to make a profile to save the settings, or make your home location default.
Weak, but worth a try. Good luck. Jidza

Can't make a wireless connection.


what's the error? if your getting the error Connected with limited connectivity try checking your network key in the router and the wireless settings on your computer if they are correct or just removed your security key, if your getting an error no networks in range or no network available check the router settings if the wireless signal is turned on the router, if you get an error windows could not connect to wireless networks try uninstalling and reinstalling the wireless card driver on your system and set the the router to defaults then try connecting with out changing any settings in the router to see if it will connect, if it connects, then there was/were settings in the router and possibly in the wireless settings in your laptop that was causing the computer and the router to have communication issues, also check for possible applications such as network magic that could cause a wireless signal to degrade or not allow connections at all if such application exists on your system uninstall it Microsoft or windows has its own wireless configuration software built into handle wireless connections in XP it is wireless zero configuration in vista and in win7 WLAN which can be set in network and sharing connection in the control panel window.....

You will need to check the wireless settings of the router.
Is there any computer online using the router.
check the IP address on that computer.
If yes then you can open the router set up page on that computer.
router set up page is the page where you can check all the router settings.

Wi-fi throufh dlink router has worked fine in past on my laptop. Recently the operating system was replaced and it will not connect- message is 'wireless network connection doesn't have a valid IP...


Operating System? Sounds like you might need to reinstall your router. the valid ip configeration issue probably happened because once a router hooks up to the internet it has a set ip address but since the operating system changed your's and your friends computer don't recignize it. If reinstalling the router doesn't work then you should try asking whoever changed the operating system.

Hi,

You may want to double-check if the wireless adapter on your laptop is enabled. If it is enabled, try to view the available wireless networks on your wireless connection and select the name of your wireless network. You may also want to check your wireless router if there is a wireless security enabled. It is important that you know the wireless settings on your wireless router to make sure that the wireless adapater settings on your laptop match the settings on the wireless router.

Macbook 13.3" won't log in to wireless


You need to check your network card software your problem may lay there. I've seen this problem many times in the passed. I will install a wireless network card or software on someones computer and two days later it will not connect everything looks fine. No matter what I do it will not connect. Remove net software for the card or on board wireless reinstall and boom it works fine.
routers may need reset or configured off the internet or the start up cd. I take this a wireless router hooked to internet gateway. don't know not enough information you may need to tell me a little more. first try install of net-card software then set you working router to unsecure no pass word need see if you connect then change it to you wpa password protected.

Wireless connection problem whenever I switch on my laptop


you need to isolate first which of the devices is giving you the problem.
- check first the connection from your modem by connecting a computer directly to it. check if you'll loose the connection from the modem. if so, you need to check with your internet provider if they're having maintenance from time to time since that could be the reason why the router is not providing the connection to your laptop automatically and you need to restart it to sync with the modem first.
- if you have a proper/stable connection directly from the modem, next thing to check is the connection from the router. check if your wired computers are getting the same problem. if so, you may need to check for loose/faulty cables or you may need to upgrade the firmware of your router. if the wired computers are not getting the same problem, it's time to check the wireless settings of the router.
* access the router's page by typing http://192.168.0.1 on your web browser's address bar (default username is "admin" while the default password is "password")
* go to the wireless settings page and check if the wireless name (ssid) is not the default. if it's still using the default ssid, customized it to prevent interference from other dlink network near your area
- if you have check the modem and the router, it's now time to check the wireless adapter, make sure that it is connected to your own network. if you are using it's software utility, make sure that you have created a profile using the same ssid as of your router. you can also update the driver of your wireless card if you have checked the above mentioned and you're still having the same problem
you can also try to use another wireless computer and check if it'll experience the same problem to properly isolate the if it's the router or the wireless adapter problem. you can also try to install the wireless card to another computer and check if you'll have a stable conection. if so, there could be a software (like a firewall or an antivirus software) that is giving you the problem.

hope this'll help you and just ask me if you have other concern.

ciao!
