    Same as above. Shut the top for a couple of minutes, came back, logged on, no wireless. When I press the wifi button a message appears on the screen "No Device". Very Odd.

I posted that I was having the same problem. At this point I'm not sure that it was in fact the same problem but my issue was solved by removing and then re-seating the internal wireless card. It looked pretty secure with two screw holding it down but, that seems to have been the problem with mine.

How can I set my new laptop to be network activated?


If the laptop is capable of wifi, you can connect to the internet with that. Depending on your laptop, you should have an icon down in the lower rh corner (looks like a dot with 4 arcs above the dot). With your mouse, place pointer over icon, and click on your right mouse button. In the window that pops up, it will show you available wifi sources you can connect to. Depending on where you are, you may have to enter a password if the wifi source you pick is password protected... "Unsecured" wifi sources, if you double click on it, will typically "connect", and then you should have access to the internet.

Dell n4010 wont connect to internet


Check ALL cables and reseat, try a Ethernet cable connected directly to the ISP modem. If you can connect with a cable, reboot the Wireless device. If no, contact your ISP to verify a signal, it may be a outside equipment issue. Unplug everything remove batteries when applicable, start at the ISP modem, allow the self test with the modem and wireless device. Reboot the laptop, Is your SSID in the Available Wireless Networks?

Lost wifi settings on laptop it shows I have connections but wont connect and at the bottom of the screen it has onr screen instead of two


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. Usually a wifi enabled phone, computer, or whatever device, will recognize if there is wifi access near you. If not you may need to turn on the wifi on those devices. Usually those setting can be found in menus like Network Settings. Once it recognizes the network you will need the password if it is required. Just enter that in and you are set. Where you enter the password is usually in the same menu in which you turned on your wifi enabled device. if still no connection Power on the laptop computer and wait for the operating system to boot. Right-click the wireless Internet icon in the lower right corner of the desktop. This brings up a new pull-down menu. Select "View Available Wireless Networks." This brings up a selection of different possible Internet connections that are in range of the computer. Select the wireless Internet connection you want to use. If a password is required, you need to type it in now. Wait for the laptop to connect to the Internet. In a moment the computer is going to state it has successfully connected to the Internet. Click Start, Run type in cmd and click Ok to bring up a command prompt. Type ipconfig /all and press enter and see if it gives you an IP address similar to 192.168.1.100. Check your wireless connection properties under My Network Places. Right click the wireless connection icon and choose properties. From there make sure Internet Protocol {TCP/IP} is listed, highlight it and click properties. Make sure Obtain an IP address automatically is checked and Obtain DNS server address automatically is checked. Make sure you Ethernet is enabled in bios restart your computer during the boot up process you will see on your screen a certain key to press to enter set up (BIOS) press and hold that key to enter bios using arrow keys scroll to intergrated peripherals look for SiS On Chip Pci Device press enter scroll to SiS 10/100m press enter make sure its enabled if still no joy Let's first try to start the wireless service i.e. WLAN AutoConfig service manually. To do this, login to the computer as an administrator.

1. Click Start, type services.msc and hit enter.

2. Locate WLAN AutoConfig service, double click on it to open its properties window.

How are you connected to the internet? Sometimes when you're connected to the internet via wifi, the icon can show that you have a strong signal and that you're connected when you actually aren't. Optimum wifi does this often. Turn off your wifi, wait 30 seconds, then turn it back on.

Won't recognize home wifi, though it does recognize cafe wifi


Check the settings on your router, make sure it is transmitting 802.11b AND 802.11g. Perhaps your previous laptop is accepting the signal that is possibly 802.11g, but the older laptop is needing b. If that doesnt work, go back to the cafe, and see if you are still able to connect. If not, check the settings to make sure wireless is still enabled. Some laptops have a slider button on the front or side to enable/disable wifi, one of mine has it and sometimes i accidently turn it off. If it is indeed on, try disabling it, and re-inabling it.

Wifi connection


Hello. The wifi switch should be on as indicated by the light beside it. Please press on Start-Connect to  - then select a wireless network then click Connect. If you are asked for the password, please enter it. Click on Open Network and Sharing Center to check if there is a red x mark between the network and the internet or between the network and the computer icons. If there is none, please launch your internet explorer. Hope this works. Thanks.

Wireless Internet Access


Hi, Normally there should be an Icon at the system tray (lower right) which is for the WiFi. Placing your mouse over the icons would tell you what the icon is for. Right clicking on the WiFi icon would show you whether it is enable or disabled. Double clicking on it would give you the WiFi access window where you can select which WiFi network you can connect to. Some of these wireless internet cafe would grant free access while others would need you to check-in with their admin or somebody and on certain cafes for a fee. Hope this be of some help to you and pls post again how things turn up. Kind regards.
