Re: wi fi

You need to determine whether it's your router thats the problem, either overheating or signal lose because of where it's situated, or whether it's your wireless network card losing connection because of a faulty driver programme or the wireless hardware being faulty itself. If you are using the software that came with the wifi card, then try using windows zero wireless configuration instead.

How can i boost my wi-fi

You can buy a 'repeater'. A repeater is a net device that can pick up your wifi signal from one wifi, and using another channel (your computer or other device can automatically change channels) it will also send the same connection without wires. Basically, these are like cell towers in that you can move from one to another seamlessly, if they're built to do so. Some cheaper models will require you to chose the one you want.

The other option is to use the etherport, and run another wireless router by pulling a cable to the part of the house or buisness where you need the signal.

Now, that's the easiest way. However, if your wifi uses an antenna, sometimes, if you can find one, you can get a better antenna, something that is directional, or partly directional, this can at times double or triple your distance. However, unless the antenna has an amplifier, it will merely have the same signal, it will just confine the directions it travels, and this boosts the signal. Most normal antennas transmit 360°, but you can get them with any angle spread, and it will help, even down to 15°, which is a very narrow but strong signal. Add an amplifier, and you increase the output signal.

Hope this helps.

Why did the FBI show up in my wi fi

Sometimes people put odd names in as their wi-fi access point identifier. I personally use 'POLICE' and it scares people away from hacking my wifi.
Anyone can give ANY name to their Access Point / Hub to Broadcast.

How do i connect my wi-fi on a Delstar Netbook

Is the wireless enabled on the laptop, if it is then it should detect any available wi-fi network when you switch it on.
If it does'nt detect a wi-fi signal it could be a problem with the wi-fi card driver.I don't know if you have the user guide for it but I thought you might need it so I uploaded it here for you.

I did notice in the manual there is a master reset switch recessed in the bottom of the case. You can use it to reset back to the default settings as if you had just bought it.
You must save all you personal files first though or you will use them.

Please instruct on how to access McDonalds wifi. A booklet was not included with my netbook 7 inch and I am lost. Please detail

From McDonalds:

You need a Wi-Fi (802.11b/g) enabled device.

Most newer laptops have built-in Wi-Fi capabilities. Older versions may require a separate Wi-Fi card, which you can purchase at most larger electronics retailers. Any chip or card that has been certified for compliance with the Wi-Fi wireless LAN standard (IEE 802.11b) can be used. More and more PDAs and even cell phones are now Wi-Fi enabled. A manufacturer or service provider can help you identify these devices.

Connecting is simple:

When in the McDonald's restaurant, just turn on your computer (or PDA), select "Wayport_Access" from the available wireless networks and open the Internet browser. You will be pointed to the McDonald's splash page where you can select the CONNECT button.

I hope this helps - please rate my reply.

I am not able to connect to the Wi-fi network in my area from my HP 6535B laptop. I am able to connect using another laptop on which there is specific button for wi-fi but from HP there seems to be...

"Wireless LAN" is the same as wifi. The HP 6535b does come shipped with wifi by default. The wifi can be turned on an off with a button on the laptop. The button looks like a typical wifi symbol (or a palm tree) as is located on the top panel above the keyboard, just to the left of the HP logo. If it is turned on it will be blue, if it's off it will be orange. As long as that is on you should be able to see any wifi networks in your area. If you can see the network but can't connect (even if you type in the right key) the issue may be that the wifi network is encrypted with WPA2 and you don't have the proper Windows patch installed. If you have Windows XP you'll need service pack 3 or the WPA2 patch from Microsfot (google "KB893357" and it's the first link).

Insirion E1505: Missing Wi-Fi device

I would not open up one of these animals if I could avoid it! Go to the bios, "Disable" the Wi-Fi. Re-boot and ensure NO Wi-fi AT ALL in "Device Manger". If you have the software for the Wi-fi (May be on the System disk that came with the machine) go to "Remove Programs" and take out any software for this device. Shut down completely. Leave for a couple of mins. Re-start and go into bios. Re-enable Wi-Fi and re-boot. re-install software IF requested. Good Luck! Ian.
