There should be an indicator LED to show that the wireless device is on. If no light, you need to turn it on. If it's red, the device has failed. Quickest/cheapest fix? Buy and install a USB wireless adapter.

I have sony vaio S. but the wirelees is not working no wireless host shown. how can i fix it?


Selecting the wireless function Follow the steps below to select the wireless function to be activated when you set the WIRELESS switch on your computer to on. Double-click (wireless switch icon) on the Notification area at the bottom right of the desktop.The Wireless Device Switch dialog box appears. Hints The appearance of the wireless switch icon changes depending on the selected wireless function. Point to the wireless switch icon to display the selected wireless function. Alternatively, you can right-click the wireless switch icon and select "show Wireless Device Switch settings" to display the Wireless Device Switch dialog box. Select the desired wireless function from "Wireless LAN" or "Bluetooth Device". Notes 5 GHz Wireless LAN is available on certain models only. You must select at least one wireless function to perform wireless communications. The 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz Wireless LAN functions employ different frequency bandwidths, thus are not compatible with each other. Checking the check box for both "Enable 2.4 GHz Wireless LAN" and "Enable Bluetooth Device" may cause poor communication performance or a connection loss due to electromagnetic interference. Click OK. The message "Setting up the wireless devices. Process may take several minutes. Please wait." appears first, then the Wireless Device Switch dialog box is closed, and finally the dialog box that describes what to do with the icon on the Notification area appears. Note While the message "Setting up the Wireless Devices. Process may take several minutes. Please wait." is displayed, do not: place your computer into power saving mode. turn off Windows or log off from the current user. turn on and off the WIRELESS switch. Confirm the settings and click OK. The dialog box about the icon on the Notification area closes. Hint If you check the "Don't show this dialog in the future" check box, the dialog box will not appear next time you close the Wireless Device Switch dialog. To analyze the network condition You can analyze the network condition if you select either or both of the wireless functions under "Wireless LAN" in step 2 above. Click the "Diagnose" button to start Windows Network Diagnostics. When the network analysis is complete, the result is displayed. If any problems are found, follow the on-screen instructions. Hint Windows Network Diagnostics is the function to identify problems the network has and present solutions to them.

How to improve signal strength on a wireless network


The success of a wireless network depends on the signal strength. A strong signal is required so all networking devices can communicate with each other. A weak signal causes low bandwidth preventing communication between hosts and causing network disruption. <br /> <ol> <li>Pay attention to router placement. It should be away from walls, floor, and glass and metal objects, all of which disturb wireless signals. If possible, place the router in a central location.</li> <li>Change your router's standard antenna to use a high-gain antenna that sends signals in one direction. This way signals can be focused in the required direction. Standard antennae send signals in all the directions, which may not be desirable especially if the router needs to be placed next to a wall.</li> <li>Use a wireless repeater, the device that enhances range of a wireless network.</li> <li>Change the channel on which the router is functioning. Similar to radio stations, routers function on different channels one of which may give better performance than the other.</li> <li>Ensure the network card installed in the hosts is capable of receiving and sending signals to the router. In this respect, using equipment from one manufacturer is better.</li> <li>Check the vendor's site regularly for latest updates, performance enhancing tips and fixes.</li></ol> if you need more information regarding improvement of wireless network, visit<a href="http://www.microsoft.com/athome/setup/wirelesstips.aspx"> THIS</a> site.

Reloaded OS (Vista) and not can't connect to my functioning Wireless Router. Device Manager does not show a Wireless NIC.


If you don't even have the wireless driver installed that would be why you can't see the wireless network/router. If you give me the model of the computer/laptop or motherboard. I would be happy to get you the correct drivers. If this is a 3rd party wireless nic that wasn't installed by the manufacturer then I would need the model number of the specific NIC. Once I have that information I can assist you further.
Thank you,
Lee

Where is the switch or function key combination to turn on wireless connection?


It's difficult to tell, but there seems to be a small switch on the front, that may activate the wireless connection. If that isn't it, you can usually access the modems through control panel, under 'network and internet,' and the wireless assistant, or possibly the network and sharing center; if the wireless modem is disabled, right clicking on the icon will usually give you an option to activate it, or you can connect to a network through the network and sharing center, as well as detecting networks, and that will tell you whether or not the thing is working.

How to enable wireless connection . Wireless reciver is working network connection was working over wireless . It appears that reciever is switched off but I cannot find how to turn it on


Is this a desktop or a laptop?

If it's a laptop, most laptops have an on/off switch for the wireless. Depending on the brand and model, it could be in one of several places.

So, not knowing which model you have, let me recommend that you look for an icon that looks like a radio antenna. The icon should be on one of the keyboard buttons.

If the icon is on a Function key (F1, F2, etc), then all you need to do is press <Fn> and the function button with the icon. Press them both at the same time.
Then, your wireless should be on.

Please let me know if you need further assistance.

Hi, I have a toshiba windows XP laptop which stopped connecting to wireless network(WEP) .But it connects to network through LAN with ethernet cable .Laptop wireless finds my network but does not connect(...


Check your security settings would be a good start. Have you checked to see if XP uses WEP to authenticate? (it should do this automatically but sometimes it doesn't)

How do you install wireless usb adaptor


A wireless USB adapter is a simple device that connects to an open USB port on your computer or laptop, allowing you to connect wirelessly to a network that is within range. They come with different connection speeds, ranges and security protection allowing you to connect to the Internet and use email servers, without complicated setups. Installing USB adapters to a computer is a simple task that anyone can perform. With just a few steps, you can access wireless networkmag-glass_10x10.gif where there is one.
jQuery('.intro .thumbnail').each(function(i,e){ jQuery(e).find('img').one('error',function(){ jQuery(e).remove(); }); }); Difficulty: Moderately Easy Instructions
  1. Step 1 Research around before purchasing a wireless USB adapter. There are many different networking companies such as Belkin, Netgear and Linksys (see links in Resources). Compare prices and features such as speed in megabytes per second (mbps). Look for wireless USB adapters with a compliance of IEEE 802.11b or IEEE 802.11g. These options give you increased security on your network.
  2. Step 2 Plug your purchased USB into a USB port on your computer. Depending on the chosen model, you may have an installation CD. Place your installation CD into the CD-ROM on your computer, and follow the setup instructions to install the wireless USB drivers. Some adapters will install automatically.
  3. Step 3 Locate the wireless icon on the lower right of your computer screen. If there is an "X" marked on it, use the manual that comes with your purchased wireless USB adapter to configure it properly. The wireless icon usually lights up when a wireless connection point is detected.
