    The adapter is most likely functioning okay, but it's not getting an IP address, either because it can't connect to the access point or the access point isn't giving out IP addresses. When DHCP times out, Windows will give you an "auto-configured" IP address that starts with 169.254 and is completely useless. What kind of access point is it? Are you using any kind of wireless security?

Your router's wireless encryption setting (WEP) has been changed.
Theencryption key secures your data from unauthorized access. The router's password is a Passphrase or the WEP or WPA orWPA2 encryption key. The Passphrase generates the WEP or WPA or WPA2 encryptionkey and this is in the router's wireless settings. To connect to your wireless router, configure the router'swireless settings ie SSID, plus the WPAor WPA2 encryption key and then configure wireless cards in the laptops and orcomputers with these router's wireless settings. Then the laptops and desktopcomputers can communicate with your wireless router.

Have an acer Aspire One netbook and for some reason I cannot connect to the internet even though it is saying that a wifi connection has been established. This has never happened before


If you are connecting on an open WiFi (does not have WEP or WPA enabled), then make sure you are connected to the correct SSID (wireless ID) and not on some other open SSID. If you are on the right SSID, check that you don't have limited connectivity due to low signal strength. If OK, then open Internet Explorer to use its Diagnose Connection Problems tool...
1. click on Tools tab
2. click on Diagnose Connection Problems...
3. click on Next button and follow the steps
If unsuccessful, try powering off the wireless router and the cable/dsl modem for a few minutes and then powering up the modem first followed by the wireless router. Once the netbook has re-established the WiFi connection, repeat the above procedure to Diagnose Connection Problems. Finally, if still unseccessful, connect directly to your wireless router using an ethernet cable from one of the four RJ-45 LAN ports on the router to the netbook's 10/100 ethernet RJ-45 port on its left side. A LAN connection icon should now show in the bottom right of the Desktop's Toolbar. Hovering the mouse cursor over it shows the Local Area Connection pop-up with Speed and Status. If Status is connected, then open Internet Explorer again and use its Diagnose Connection Problems tool to check connectivity to the internet. If still unresolved, the next step would be to log into the router to check its WAN status and depending on the results, you may have to contact your Internet Service Provider.

Wireless network problem with Dell Inspiron 600m.


Your wireless router is acting as the mechanism to hand out IP addresses using DHCP.

Sometimes glitches occur and I would recommend unplugging your wireless router from its power surce, letting it sit for a minute or two and replug it back in.

It will come back to life , reset itself and start handing out IP addresses to all computers and peripherals that normally connect to the router.

Lost ability to connect to home network after phone/DSL failure


Recreate your wlan network.
WLAN signal refers only to radio signal between Router and PC no link with your capability to pass-through: wrong password, access list or firewall can block your access with the strongest radio signal.
Check (or recreate ) your credential on your PC.
Check if you can log as admin into your Router.
