There are one or two actions you can take:

1. Disable Windows Firewall

2. In Internet Options Control Panel go to the connection tab and then the LAN Settings where you can uncheck the "Automatically detect settings" button.

3. If you have any third party software, I would get rid of this and ensure that the"Windows Zero Configuration" in the Services menu is set to "Automatic" and the status is started.

Interestingly, Anti Virus programs sometimes interfere with wireless set up - you could see if it helps by disabling it whilst configuring your wireless. It might also be worth trying to connect without any encryption code & see if that will connect - you can then sort out the encryption.

Network cable not properly plugged in or may be broken


which OS do you have? XP, Vista, 7, etc. you must have a wireless adapter in your PC to use wireless and it must be enabled.
if not wireless, then you must have an ethernet slot with cable(CAT5) inserted from internet modem/router. if you have a laptop then you have wireless available. there is a key on keyboard to turn wireless on. you have to have your Network assigned to the wireless internet provider too. if you have cable(cat5) connected to a modem or router/modem connection, and you see an ethernet icon in your lower right corner window(looks like a little computer display), then you have an ethernet connection. if not then either the cable is bad or the modem/router is not producing a connection to pc. thats alot i know but i have little knowledge about your internet connection on your pc. you have not given that to me to use

On my Windows XP laptop I cannot get the wireless to work. All it says is "limited or no connectivity" when it connects. I have tried a million things, and nothing works! What can I do?


Disconnect your laptop wireless connection from the wireless acess connection. (Reboot your laptop if necessary). Then reconnect your laptop wireless connection, if your wireless network is a secured wireless network, your laptop will prompt for a network key ie your wireless network SSID password. Make sure the network key correctly entered ie.("Most wireless password keys are Upper or Lower case sensitive")

If the problem persist, then use the "Command Prompt"
Start ->"Run" ->Type "CMD" ->The command prompt will appear, then type ie without the quotes,
1. "ipconfig /release" -> enter
2. "ipconfig /renew" -> enter
3. "ipconfig /flushdns" -> enter

Hope it helps.

How to activate my wi fi connection...


The first step would be to see if your computer has a wireless card in it. You could check your specs for information or goto Network Connections in the Control Panel (for a windows machine) and see if you have a Wireless Network Connection option.

If you do have a wireless card you'll need a wireless access point. This is usually in the form of a wireless router. Usually these have to be purchased and connected to a modem which gives you access to the internet.
hope this wil help u

How can i set up a connection to a network with windows vista basic


There are several ways to do this you can use a router, wireless router or set up a direct connection. With a router all you have to do is connect your modem to the router and computers to the router. For a wireless connection you need a wireless card installed in your computer and a wireless router. You connect your modem to your router and set up your wireless connection with the software that came with your card or through windows wireless service. You can also connect two computers through their ethernet port with an ethernet cord. You plug coonect them with the cord go into control panel open network connections and to the left chose set up home or small office network. You will need to configure the computer with internet access as the host and the other as a guest. You can share any type of connection such as dial up, cable, dsl, and broadband.

I have F5D7230-4 router. Modem downstairs connected to DSL. Computer upstairs needs a wireless card to work This is a ''G'' router, but it only picks up signal upstairs with a ''B'' card which I stole...


The Belkin F5D7230-4 router should offer "Wireless G" connections,
unless you have used its built-in web-interface to only allow "Wireless B" connections.

So, if your "upstairs" computer, with a "Wireless B" adapter, connects, it will connect only at the slower "Wireless B" speed.

If you want "Wireless G" speed, you will need to purchase a "Wireless G" adapter.

Cannot get internet connection


You probably have to buy a wireless card and and install it in your computer...there wasn't much in the way of home wireless back in 2002.
Go to your device manager and look at the network adapters and see if you have a wireless adapter installed on your system. If not, you will have to put a wireless pci card in and install it and then you will be able to configure your computer to connect to your router with a wireless connection.
