    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.

Err connection reset


Obvious thing, but have you already tried restarting the router? Sounds like an odd problem for it to only happen with wireless that that router with that laptop. That error looks like a Google Chrome error. It may be worth seeing if you still get the error with Firefox as well.

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.

Internet Connection Problem on One Computer


By any chance, are you trying to use something other than Windows to manage the wireless adapter? If you are, remove it.

Now, Click on Start, right click on Network highlight properties, and click on manage network connections on the Tasks menu.
Your two options will be the icons for your LAN and Wireless Network. Is it enabled and without red or yellow marks? It could be disable, it could be not connected and you can't view wireless networks because the switch is off, or it may just nut see your unsecure network (unlikely).

If the above is clear, right click on the wireless and highlight Properties and left click so it brings up the Networking tab. Highlight IPv4 and click on Properties. Make sure the Obtain dots are ticked. That should work, since you are running unsecured.
If it already is, check the red X or if it isn't click OK and close down the box.

Now, back to where your Wireless card is showing, right click it and you have Disable, Connect/Disconnect, Status, Diagnose etc.

If you're still Disconnected but not Disabled, click on Connect/Disconnect. Does it show your wireless network?

By this time, it should. If it doesn't post back. The other possibility is that you take your computer to a wireless internet cafe, McDonalds, Panera Bread, or motel with WiFi and test it there.
