Your problem may appear from a not properly enabled WLAN card. Make sure the Wi-Fi swithc is in ON position and on your laptop keyboard try the FN+F8 combination to have displayed the wireless card status. The WLAN card has to be ENABLED to be able to connect to the Internet. The combination done will make appear on your display a window with some options available; choose that option that enables your wireless card. Also check in your computer's DEVICE MANAGER if your WLAN card is working properly. To do so follow these simple steps: 1. START and click on SYSTEM; 2. in SYSTEM option click on DEVICE MANAGER; 3. on DEVICE MANAGER option go at NETWORK ADAPTERS and see if there your wireless card is indicated and it shows that it is working PROPERLY; 4. if an UNKNOWN DEVICE is indicated then try to find the right driver for you notebook model and WLAN card model; 5. install the driver then REBOOT and recheck in DEVICE MANAGER if your WLAN card is displayed properly this time.
Ok with a peripheral on USB or on PC card bay you can try to connect to a Wireless lan: Please check this tip on the subject To connect to an existing WLAN you must be sure your wireless card is working: I assume you installed all the related sw coming with the wlan card. Using the card installed driver check card is enabled and running (in Control Panel/Network connection should be visible and enabled) Then you can connect to an open Wi-Fi HOTSPOT or to your WLAN you configure with a router connected to your internet modem.
To connect to an existing HOTSPOT: find a location where you know a wi-fi access point (HOTSPOT) is active: Internet cafe,, library, airport,, station, hotel etc.your card should be able to find the existing network when you select "show existing network" in wlan driver. Connect if network is "unsecure" (= no password or key is required) or ask for password if you can get it for a fee (hotel)
To connect to your home or office WLAN be sure to use a router (or access point) with same standard of your card (802-11G or B or A or N) with same security protocol (WEP or WPA) and configure your router Internet access BEFORE wireless access. Connect your PC to your router using a LAN cable and be sure you can browse through the router.(contact your ISP for router specs if you need it: PPOA/E and other). Follow the tip and your router doc for settings
Assuming you are in XP: Start in safe mode and either try to fix your Configuration (did you installed anything conflicting with you WLAN card?) or simply disable the card from your configuration in Control panel, system, Hardware tab, Device manager Check if an updated driver exists for your card: latest SP3 is sometime conflicting with older device drive. Let me know if working and do not forget to rate the solution
Ok solution to this problem is simple! First determine if there are Wireless household phones around! 2.4 GHZ. These phones use the same exact frequency your Router does, and wireless cards. Channels I believe 8,6,and 11. Your phone hops between these when a call comes through and the channel is not clear. So hence the problem. Now another problem would be that the your firewall is not allowing your PCs to connect to the wireless network. So you may need to let down your firewall to reestablish connection. The other solution would be to erase all of the web access points you have visited from your network connections settings tool properties. Sometimes when this gets filled you card will not be able to scan a new network. The other solution would be to plug in the information manually into your Network adapter. These are all simple fixes! If this does not help drop me a line. I have plenty more answers! I cannot put them all down considering I only know based on the limited information!
