SOURCE: Wireless internet connection

First step - Enable your wireless hardware by switching it on some models have a separate switch or with the keyboard

Second step - Check your wireless zero configuration service under adminitration tools ->services is running or its managed by another software supplied along with your laptop - enable it. one only works at a time.

third step - go to your network connections choose wireless connection and right click properties double click on Internet protocol TCP/IP and see there is any IP manually inserted change it to automatically obtain IP address

Four step - Open your Internet Explorer and enjoy wireless internet.

Note. Some laptop required to create profiles prior to connect to wireless but from your post i hope your laptop is not one of them

SOURCE: gateway laptop was connecting to internet wirelessly, not now

Check that if there is Static ip configured on your Lan-Card...

if yes.. then you need to configure the IP addresses manually for W-LAN as well.


One more thing; if Lan-card is not configured with static IP then

make sure your W-lan IP seting is on "obtain Ip automatically"


Here is the way to do this....


Click on the start orb to open a list of programs and content. The start menu has been replaced by the “start orb” which still gives you the same functionality as the start button from previous OS versions, but consumes less screen real estate.
Right click on “Network” and go to properties. That opens the “Network and Sharing Center” which is your central office for anything pertaining to (just as it says) networking or sharing resources.
On the left hand column you want to click on “Manage Network Connections.”

This opens the Network Connections Window which you will find familiar to Windows 2000/XP. It will list all of your NICs or Wireless Connections.
Right click and go to properties of the connection you would like to statically assign. You will now be prompted for an administrative password. This is part of Microsoft’s new User Account Control (UAC) which will help unauthorized changes to your systems.
Once you have authenticated you will see the properties of the selected network connection.

The properties screen is very similar to what you’ve seen in the past, but one thing you will likely notice is by default Windows Vista supports IPv6. If you’re on a corporate or government network that is running IPv6 you can fill in your IP information there.
Otherwise, you will select Internet Protocol Version 4 (IPv4) and click properties. Now you will be able to Choose the option "Obtain Ip adress automaticlay"

Close the Network Connections Window


Let me know if this helps.. Good luck...

regards,

An internal wireless card lets you access the Internet and a home or corporate computer network without the hassle of using an Ethernet or other type of network connection.

The wireless card grabs the communication signal flowing throughout the air and processes the signal through your Gateway PC's Windows operating system so you can access websites, email and related Internet-based services.

But like other devices in your computer, you must turn on the internal wireless card in your Gateway PC before using it.

Turn on your computer, if it is off.

Press and hold the "Fn" key on your computer's keyboard.
Press the "F2" key in the upper row of keys on your keyboard.

The wireless Internet card's connection utility will start searching for a wireless signal.
Connecting to a Signal

Click "Start," "Connect To."
If your Gateway PC is running Windows 7, click on the Windows symbol on the taskbar. Click "Control Panel," "Network and Internet," "View network status and tasks."

Click on the wireless connection you want to connect to.

If using Windows 7, click on "Connect to a network," then click on the wireless connection you want to connect to.

Click "Connect." Enter the wireless connection's network password (SSID), if prompted. Click "Next."

Click "Connect Anyway," if prompted with a message about the connection not being secure.

Click "Close." Open your Gateway PC's Internet browser or email application to start using the Internet connection.

Cant access internet through wireless network.


How do you know your notebook is connected to your wifi AP? Did you try pinging the gateway? If not, open your command window & type "ping 192.168.0.1" (put in your own gateway address.) If you get replies, then ping something outside of your network: "ping 4.2.2.2" (this is a verizon dns server). If you get replies, then "ping yahoo.com". If it does not fail at any of the above steps, you don't have a connectivity problem. If you fail any of the above, then report back & we'll continue the troubleshooting.

My wireless laptop gateway won't connect to my router again after going out of town using it at hotel and now it wont connect at home. it will connect on my job with no problem


Hi!

It is possible that the wifi networking where you connect in the Hotel use the same name of you home wifi network!

Try deleting your wifi profiles and reconnect again.

If you don't know how to delete the wifi profiles let me know and I tell you.

Thanks!

Need to set up wireless for toshiba A105-S-4034


If you have installed the AT&T software, you should be able to use that application to connect to the Internet. Are you using a USB gateway or do you have a stand-alone gateway?

If you have the USB type, install the software first and then connect the USB gateway, Click on the software app to start the Internet connection. AT&T info will show a tab for GSx and one for Wireless. As long as you have a subscription, I would use the GSx tab, otherwise, select the wireless tab and connect to your gateway or any other wireless router that you have access to. Good Luck.
