Look for a button with waves or curves on it, something like this

or

if may either be on the keyboard or a switch elsewhere on the computer

If it's a function button hold down the Fn key as you would the shift key and tap the key with the icon on it to turn the wireless off or on, look at your screen when you do this and it should show whether it's turning on or off

I usually connect to my neighbor's wireless internet. We have had no problems until this morning when the connection to the internet just dropped and stopped working. I have the Linksys WUSB54GSC and it...


Usually such problems occur when the administrator to the internet service decides to block a particular user from accessing the internet or sets a password for users on the internet. The best bet is to contact your neighbour as he will be the best person to tell you what happened.
Hope this solution has been helpful?

Wireless doens't work on my 7535 - it connects to the router, but not to the internet - internet does work on the main computer


You have to do a few steps to check the problem : 1.Check if the wireless switch is on, on your laptop.
2. If it is on then check if the network adaptors are installed or not. You can check that by going into device manager ( start - run - devmgmt.msc). If it is not installed you will find a exclamation mark or simply go to your manufacturers website and update your wireless driver.
3.Then go to Start\Connect To\Show All Network Connections (or, if this doesn't show up on your computer, Start\Control Panel\Network And Internet Connections\Network Connections). For your wireless card, remove it from the bridge (right click on the wireless network and enable it if it is disabled and then if you have a option remove it from bridge click on that.)
4.Restart your wireless zero configration. Go to control panel/Administrative tools/Services, right-clicking on the "Wireless Zero Configuration", and telling it to stop. After it stops, right-click on it again, and tell it to start, and then wait a minute or so and see what happens.
then try to connect and see if you can for this go to the network and sharing center search for all the wireless networks and try to connect. I think this should do it for you. If not reply with the message or error you get.

I can't access my wireless internet, asking for a pass phrase


the D Link router is what is causing the issue - Cut your losses and get a linksys ( netgears are ok so maybe one of those ) but avoid D Link and Belkin equipment as far as wireless or networking goes.

An apple airport extreme ( although a bit more expensive ) are very good.

Internet !


hello there!! thanks for using Fixya.com!

You know what, I had the same problem couple of months ago. But I suggest that you should enter manually the network settings for the WLAN internet connection.

You have a pretty common configuration and there's good and bad news. The good news is that yes, you can definitely get your Sony PSP onto the Internet with the setup you have. The bad news is that I'm not exactly right when I say "with the setup you have" because you're going to need to buy what's called a wireless router to connect.
Basically, the setup you have works like this:
highspeed Internet connection from service provider (BT in your case) connects to highspeed modem connects via Ethernet cable to your computer.

While you can configure the wireless network with a password, since the Sony PSP claims to support the various secure wireless protocols, my experience is that it never connects properly. Instead, I suggest you leave it password-free, though it's not particularly secure. If you have good neighbors, you're probably safe...

Or you may just simply:

Wireless network connection Step1Turn on the “WLAN” switch on your PSP when you are in range of a wireless access point. Step2Select the “Network” option on the “Home” menu. Step3Select the “Internet Browser” option and then press “X.” Step4Use the Up and Down direction buttons to select the address bar. Step5Press the Circle button to display the onscreen keyboard. Step6Use the onscreen keyboard to enter a Web address. Step7Select the “Enter” key and then press button “X.” Step8Select a connection and then press “X” to display the Web page. jQuery('.Article .Steps .Image').each(function(i,e){ var $this = jQuery(this); $this.find('img').error(function(){ jQuery(this).remove(); $this.remove(); }); }); good luck!
