Turn on your computer and locate the Wi-Fi icon. This could be located on the upper row on a laptop it will have the radiation look ((())) Make sure its pressed on. There should be an option to "automatically connect" when it detects the network. Look for a checkbox. create the menu tab on your homepage right click in the top toolbar you should see a number of toolbar options select the menu tab which will add File Edit View Favorites Tools and Help
click on the tools at the bottom of the drop down list will be internet options in the connections tab tick in the box never dial a connection below that will be change search defaults click on settings you will see all search providers you have if dont need any of them you can disable or remove them Power on the laptop computer and wait for the operating system to boot before proceeding. Right-click the wireless icon in the lower right corner of the desktop. From the pop-up menu select "Enable." This activates the wireless Internet options but it does not turn on the wireless receiver. Push down on the wireless button or wireless switch on the top of the keyboard. After a moments time the switch or button lights up, signifying the computer is ready for an Internet connection. Right-click the wireless icon again. From the pull-up menu choose to view all available wireless networks in the area. A window appears with all the networks your computer receives some sort of signal from. Select the wireless network you want access to, type in the password (if required) and click "Connect." Momentarily the laptop computer connects to the Internet.
you should be able to, it depends on the laptop, the os, the wireless adapter, and the settings .
Click start Control Panel - Network Connections - right click on 'Wireless connection' (or similar) and click 'enable'. right click on the network in the bottom toolbar select open network sharing center you should have the options to either connect or disconnect or set up a network connection this will vary depending on your operating system Hope this helps. b>

SOURCE: Wireless Internet For Laptops

KDunstan -

It is possible to plug a USB wireless adapter into your laptop and connect almost anywhere, however there are limitations; You won't be connecting to your own ISP unless you are within range of your wireless router, and you need to be within range of ANY wireless router to get wireless internet access at all.

What makes wireless connections convenient in a laptop is the fact that many businesses - coffee shops, bars, hotels, even McDonalds - offer free wireless access, or very low subscription rates.

I'd also like to point out that you may not need to purchase a wireless USB adapter; If your laptop was built anytime between 2005 and today, then it most likely has a wireless card already built in; refer to the laptop's owner's manual, or the manufacturer's web site, for more info.

*Note* If you find that a USB device, or built in wireless adapter, don't have as much range as you'ld like, most computer stores sell seperate antennas for boosting range.

Hope this helps!

First step - Enable your wireless hardware by switching it on some models have a separate switch or with the keyboard

Second step - Check your wireless zero configuration service under adminitration tools ->services is running or its managed by another software supplied along with your laptop - enable it. one only works at a time.

third step - go to your network connections choose wireless connection and right click properties double click on Internet protocol TCP/IP and see there is any IP manually inserted change it to automatically obtain IP address

Four step - Open your Internet Explorer and enjoy wireless internet.

Note. Some laptop required to create profiles prior to connect to wireless but from your post i hope your laptop is not one of them

Settings must have changed and not not changed back, set your friends settings as default settings. He may have accidently reset something etc.

A quick solution is to go to
System Restore and reset it back a day before you gave it to your friend.

go to START > PROGRAMS >
ACCESSORIES > SYSTEM TOOLS and you'll find SYSTEM RESTORE there. Click on it and find the option to set your Notebook to an EARLIER TIME. After selecting that from the list find a date BEFORE YOU LOANDED THE NOTEBOOK TO YOUR FRIEND and left click on it and follow the instructions and your COmputer will restore the system to that earlier date (it could be 1 day before you loaned it). You will not lose any files etc.

After it goes through a cycle of rebooting etc and it resets to the earlier date, your Network should work as it did before you loaned it to your friend.

If you have trouble finding SYSTEM RESTORE go to HELP and look for a link there.

Good Luck !
Cheers !

If you can install a wireless repeater it may provide a better signal.
OR
A wireless 3G network uses the mobile/cell phone network and can be separate or combine with your cell phone account. This type of Internet connection uses an USB wireless device shaped like an USB memory stick.

My hp pavilion dv 9000 can not connect to bt home hub 2.0


hi, please make sure that you enable WPA encryption on the wireless router. Vista will give you trouble if you use WEP encryption. Also, please update the firmware on the wireless router, if possible.

Let me know how it goes.

How do I add an additional laptop to browse the internet?


If you mean to your home network you could use either a router or a hub. With a hub you can connect a cable to access the internet. With a wireless router you can use a wireless card in the laptop as well and use the laptop anywhere in the house.

Lost connection between switch and hub - LED flashes every 5 secs


You say you have the same problem when you connect the cable directly from router to laptop, so it apparently is not a hub problem. That leaves the router and the cable. You're fortunate in having a working system on the other port. Why not try swapping pieces to see which is the failed piece? For example, what if you swap the ports for the cables? If it's a router problem, then the "bad" cable should work when in the other port. What if you swap cables? That would reveal a bad cable. Finally, swapping computers would show a computer configuration problem, such as the connection not being set to automatic.

Wont connect ti internet


Same device as mine. and im on home hub aswell. Uninstall the drivers. Restart windows. Reinstall the drivers. Hopefully this should make a differance. Also when reinstalling. make sure the device is not plugged in until you finish installing drivers. And maybe put it into another usb when you are ready to try again. this is something good to try on older systems. or OS's.

Wireless connection problem


BT is right, the fault is at your end, because you can connect to the Internet with an ethernet cable.
You have lost your wireless connection with the wireless hub.
This could be low signal strength (especially if the wireless access point is in one part of the house and your laptop is in another room)
OR Your laptop wireless card has lost its wireless access configuration.
Check your laptop wireless configuration, check your signal strength, check your SSID, check your security (WEP or WAP),
Have you got MAC address filtering.
Go to control panel, click on network connections, right click on Wireless Network, Click on repair (might fix your connection problem), Else right click on Status (should give you indication of how your wireless is functioning or not functioning).
Check your TCP/IP settings is set for "Obtain an IP address automatically"
Without more information it is difficult to identify exactly what is wrong with your connection.
