    You say that "Laptop wireless indicator shows that it is on" but is this the light on the laptop that shows your wifi is on, or is it the actual wireless connection in the system tray?

    Also if you right click on the wireless connection in the tray and show all wireless connections do you show an access point that you can connect to or does it say connect to this device? You might have to manually connect to your wireless access point.

    Please let me know. Thanks, look forward to resolving your issue.

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?

I would like to know when it say laptop with built in wireless. Does that mine i already got internet service on it. Or i have to buy USB modem.


Hello Blac,

All the laptops available in market have built in wireless 802.11 b/g/n or 802.11 b/g/n Bluetooth® wireless networking. It means that you can access the internet via Wi-Fi or through Wi-Fi hotspots. In wireless connectivity you do not require the wired connection to access the internet. In home you can connect the laptop via wireless connection using the home networking router available in market. The advantage of wireless connection is that you can use the internet in your home anywhere with in 100 meters of range with proper wireless signals. You will require to get the internet connection from the ISP(Internet Service Provider).

Dell 1735 computer drops wifi connection whenever it feels like intermittently


There are a number of things that can cause interference for your wifi connection. Everything from the number of walls between you and your router, any other wireless items in your house from phones to baby monitors, and depending on how close you are to your neighbors, their equipment may interfere with yours. The type of wireless you are using can also effect your connection. The Wireless N standard provides for the best speed and connection strength, with the speed as much as 8 times faster, and the signal strength better by a factor of 4.If you are not already using the N standard I would definitely suggest switching over to that standard.
If you do have a clear path to your router, and are not really getting any interference from other equipment, it is possible that you have an issue with either your wifi card or router. I would make sure you have the most up to date drivers for both pieces of equipment as that will go a long way towards eliminating the problem.

I have an acer aspire 5315. Don't think I've wifi.


if you're using your pc as a gateway to connect to the internet you need to make sure the pc is turned on and connected before you connect wirelessly from your laptop. alternatively you can connect directly to your wireless router from your laptop, eliminating the need to use your pc to connect

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.

Laptop (HP) has wireless setting... but I want to go on the road with it and use the internet while traveling in my motor home or auto. How do I do this. What equipment do I need? It is connection to my...


There is a couple of different ways to do this. 1- you can use the built in wireless in the computer at places that have free wifi ie... McDonald's, Wendy's, BurgerKing, Coffee shops, Malls, hotels, etc... most of these have free wifi. The plus side is it's free, the downside is you are restricted to finding a place with wifi. 2- you can go through your cell phone provider and purchase an air time PC card. With this card you can go on line anywhere anytime as long as you have a signal, same as your cell. I know that just about every hotel/motel out there has free wifi now, and my folks like to travel alot in their motor home, and they told me that they see more and more camp grounds with wifi.
