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>

Does it reconnected again then? Or it never reconnects on the AC? I would try different channels on the wireless router first. Hopefully that will solve the problem do to some interference. If not, report back and I have other things you can try.

SOURCE: I can't get my usual wireless internet connection anymore on my l

Make sure you don't have your wireless turned off on your laptop. Sometimes there is a button on the laptop.

or. Go to Control panel on laptop -- then system --then device manager and check to see if there are any "explanation points" on any of your devices listed. If so, right click on the one with the "exp point" and hit update driver. Then follow the process on the screen. Sometimes you may have to select roll back driver to get it working again.

or

The wireless adapter was disabled in the same device manager. if so, right click on the adapter line and check to make sure it is enabled.

Hopefully my explanation isn't too confusing. I appologize, I'm relative new at typing directions.

Hope this helps.

If you can install a wireless repeater it may provide a better signal.

Can I connect my HP PSC1510 to my BT Homehub v1?


yes, you can. I have my printer connect to my hub and my desktop and I can print from my laptop wirelessly.
You will need your all in one connected via a printer or USB cable to a computer AND also connected to your hub. Then, go to the computer that is connected through a cable to the all in one. Your all in one should have some way to configure its IP address. I have my printer configured as 192.168.1.4 and it's plugged into the 4th port of my hub. Check if this works.

I have just bought 2 Acer aspire one netbooks. Before Xmas I checked that these would connect wirelesly to internet and they both did - have now tried again after Xmas and they wont connect wirelessly...


Hello, Vicki.

A drained battery would have no bearing on wireless access.

Since both laptops do not access wirelessly, sounds like as issue with your hub. Try the laptops at a wi-fi cafe to see if they work OK.

Hope this helps.

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.

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.
