How do i connect to a wireless network?


Hi,


If you have a laptop, you can see a list of available wireless networks, and then connect to one of those networks, no matter where you are. The wireless networks appear only if your computer has a wireless network adapter and driver installed and the adapter is enabled.


To view and connect to available wireless networks

  1. Open Connect to a Network by clicking the network icon (eff2d36c-9e0d-4d1a-9859-3af14fa4ccfc.jpg or da12251d-1e9a-4032-afae-009876c6c5a3.jpg) in the notification area.

  2. In the list of available wireless networks, click a network, and then click Connect.

    Some networks require a network security key or passphrase. To connect to one of those networks, ask your network administrator or Internet service provider (ISP) for the security key or passphrase.

Whenever possible, you should connect to security-enabled wireless networks. If you do connect to a network that's not secure, be aware that someone with the right tools can see everything that you do, including the websites you visit, the documents you work on, and the user names and passwords that you use

Can not connect to hot spots, or wireless at college or library


If the icons indicate there is a Wireless Network Connection available but you cannot see any web pages, do the following to verify the correct, current DNS IP address is selected.
1. Right-click the network icon, and select Network and Sharing Center , select Manage network connection .
2. Right-click either the Local Area Connection or the Wireless Network Connection and select Properties .
3. On the Network Connection Properties page, highlight the Internet Protocol option, and select Properties .
4. Select the Obtain an IPv6 address automatically and Obtain DMS server address automatically options, and then click OK .
5. Returning to the Network Connection Properties page, on the Networking tab, select Configure .
If there is a Power Management tab for this device, de-select the Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power option.
6. Restart the computer.

The computer retains a list of all the networks to which it has been connected, and it tries to connect to the first wireless network it discovers in the physical area. You must determine if that is the network you want and if the connection is using the current IP address and password.
1. Right-click the network icon and select the Network and Sharing Center option. The graphic display indicates if there is or is not a connection.

oIf a list of available wireless networks is displayed, highlight any active connection and then select the option to Disconnect the computer from all the networks.
2. Now that all wireless networks are disconnected, manually set up a new wireless connection.
Do not click Connect to refresh a connection. If there was a problem with that connection, just clicking Connect will refresh the same wrong information.
3. On the Network and Sharing Center window, select Connect to a network , then select Set up a connection to a network , and then Manually connect to a wireless network and click Next .
4. When prompted, enter the required network information, and then click Next .
o Network Name (SSID)
o Security type
o Encryption type
o Security key or passphrase .

Is there a manual shut off switch to disable the wireless search mode on an Acer laptop?


I assume you want to stop vista from automatically connecting to wireless networks other than yours.......try this:

Open Network and Sharing Center, click Manage wireless networks, click on your "home" network & make sure that Connect automatically when this network is in range is checked. Now do the same for any other connection that is listed but uncheck the Connect automatically when this network is in range.


Go to Start > Network > Network and Sharing Center
click Manage network connections under 'Tasks'
Right-click Wireless Network Connection
Select Properties.
In the Wireless Network Connection Properties dialogue box, click the
Wireless Networks tab.
Select other wireless network like "Y5ZONE", "PCCW" and click Properties
Click Connection tab
Uncheck the box "Connect when this network is in range"

Hope this helps.....

Connecting to internet


What version of windows are you using, If your using any windows version you will need to save the network key along with the name of the network in the wireless properties in the network tab or (network and sharing center if using vista) or where it displays all wireless networks broadcasted you should be able to right click on the name of the network your connecting to and do the same that way. You also need to make sure when you connected the network that you checked the boxes that said to remember network key and remember network name.
