Question about Gateway Computers & Internet

1 Answer

WiFi off and greyed out

I spent 3 hours looking for the solution, refreshing the system (windows 8 feature) disabling and enabling network card (it shows that it is working properly) It seems that the 'FN' button it's "on" all the time, because I pressed "f3" and you toggle from 'Airplane on/off' without pressing 'FN' button, that might be the problem...I checked the manual, there's no key to turn "on/off" the 'FN' button

your keyboard driver may be corrupt, go to my computer, right click>properties>hardware tab>device manager and go down list to keyboards, click '+' sign, right click on your keyboard and select uninstal.

You can try a system restore back to a point you remember it working, but most likely you will have to do a bios flash or an operating system repair with your recovery or operating system disc.

SOURCE: can't enable Dell Wireless 1390 WLAN Mini-Card

I had the exact same problem and went through the same steps that he did. It was only when I searched for a physical wireless switch (on the left side of my Dell D630) that the problem was solved. I didn't even know it was there and must have inadvertently knocked into the off position.

SETTING UP A WIRELESS PRINTER WITHOUT A WIRELESS ROUTER - WINDOWS 7
Install Virtual Router first "Turn any Windows 7 or Windows 2008 R2 Computer into a Wifi Hot Spot."
EditByBSEditor: Virtual Router turns any Windows 7 or Windows 2008 R2 Computer into a Wifi Hot SPOT using Windows 7's Wireless Hosted Network (Virtual Wifi) technology.
The Wireless Network Create/shared with Virtual Router uses WPA2 Encryption, and there is not way to turn off that encryption. This is actually a feature of the Wireless Hosted Network API's built into Windows 7 and 2008 R2 to ensure the best security possible.
You can give your "virtual" wireless network any name you want, and also set the password to anything. Just make sure the password is at least 8 characters. http://www.brothersoft.com/virtual-router-327895.html Then install Connectify-Me Connectify is an easy to use software router for Windows 7 computers. After downloading and installing the lightweight application, Connectify utilizes your computers' built in Wi-Fi card to wirelessly share any available Internet connection: a cable modem, a cellular card, or even another Wi-Fi network. Other Wi-Fi enabled devices including laptops, smart phones, music players, and gaming systems can see and join your Connectify hotspot just like any other Wi-Fi access point and are kept safe and secure by password-protected WPA2 Encryption. http://www.connectify.me/ Then reboot computer

I charge my i phone over night and after a few hours the battery dies


you should try turning your wifi off, and disable 3g

if you dont know how; just go to settings, general, then network. you'll see the option to disable Wifi if its enabled, as well as 3G. If you have 3G enabled, your iphone will die within 5 hours!! You can tell if your phone is on 3G mode by looking at the top left of it next to your signal bar, and see if there is an "E", a signal strength bar (Wifi), or an E, which is just the standard At&t network that takes less juice to run.

Try it lol

Cannot connect to internet


hopefully you have'nt give the pc the same ip address as the other as it won't connect.

You will need to make sure that DHCP is enabled within the routers settings as this will tell the router to assign ip addresses automatically, then go to network connections, right click on your wireless network card>properties>TCP/IP line>properties and tick 'obtain an ip address automatically', click ok, close window and restart pc.

Open up internet explorer>tools>internet options>connections tab and ensure that never dial a connection is ticked or the option greyed out, close I.E. then open up again, click refresh and it should connect.
