Re: Cannot open internet when trying to get wifi
Ok - few things to clarify first:
When you say "it connects" what do you mean? Do you open internet explorer and can browse the net without problem?
You Pick up Wifi connections - make sure you pick the correct one to connect to and ensure that you use the correct Password.
If all the above are working then make sure the Laptop is rebooted when you attempt to connect to wifi. Msn has problems when it can not resolve correct IP address - rebooting the machine should fix that.
Or the connection speed is too slow - which these days can still happen.
Finally, Get the full error message from msn and type it into google. Guide yourself to the Microsoft pages with the correct solution.
So few things to clarify and few things to test out.

Where do you try to connect to WiFi ? At home ? If so, if you do not have a wireless router you cannot connect to WiFi. If you try to connect to Wifi away from home, you have to find an open/unlocked wireless network, usually in a public place (bookstore, coffee shop, etc.) and try to connect to it. The other alternative to get on the Internet is to use the mobile/cellular network of your carrier, but for that you need a data plan.
Do you try to connect to the Internet when at home or away from home ? At home, you need to have a wireless (WiFi) network to connect your tablet to and then access the Internet from your tablet. Away from home you need to find an OPEN WiFi network (usually in public places such as coffee shops, bookstores, etc) to connect to. Or you can get an USB mobile/cellular modem from your cellular provider to attach to the USB port on your tablet and access the Internet at home and/or away from home (this option will cost you money). You also need to install on your tablet apps that will access the Internet (browsers, Pandora, Youtube, etc.).
Can your computer connect to the internet? If it can, it just means that you have a wired internet connection and not a wifi connection on the computer, which means your iPad is just connected to your home network via wifi. If your computer can't access the internet or you know you don't have internet service at home, then you either have cellular service (3G/4G) or your iPad is connected to some other available WiFi from someone else's service.
A router is only used to connect devices together in a LAN (local area network). In order to get out to the internet you also will need a modem (cable or dsl depending on your service) You will also need to pay for service through an ISP (Internet Service Provider)
First you need a WiFi wireless card or an USB WiFi adapter. This will allow you to connect to a free WiFi hot spot location such as MacDonalds, Starbucks etc. If you want to setup your own wireless network at home the you need a wireless router and then configure the wireless card/adapter in your computer with the router's wireless settings.
SETTING UP A BROADBAND CONNECTION First you need to decide what type of broadband andInternet service you require and these are - 1. DSL that uses your existing telephone line. 2. Cable that uses a cable service and can include a cable TV service. 3. A wireless 3G network which uses the mobile/cell phone network and can beseparate or combine with your cell phone account Note - Combined services generally offer discount pricing and may include amodem/wireless router.
If you use a wireless router with the DSL or Cable Internet service and yourlaptop has a wireless card then you can also connect to the Internet at WiFihot spots like McDonalds, Star Bucks, the Airport etc. If you use the wireless 3G wireless broadband service, then you can access theInternet anywhere where your ISP has 3G wireless coverage. You need to checkthe service coverage area where you need Internet service. Once you decide what type of broadband your require, then you need to checkwith the various Internet Service providers to see if they can offer and thecost of the various plans. Note the download limits and the associated additional costs if you exceed themonthly download limits. Once you sign up with a Internet Service provider,their documentation will include setting up instructions and/or installationCD.
First, you will need a place to connect to the internet. An ethernet cable (landline connection, wired connection) or a wireless connection (via wifi). You will only be able to connect via wifi if your laptop has a wireless network card as not all laptops do (though most new ones do have a wifi card).
For a wired connection, if you have a plcae then all you should need is to connect an ethernet cable from your PC to the wall or place with the interent service (home, cafe, etc).
For a wireless connection, you will need to open and view all wireless networks. Connect to the one you want to use. You may need a security code (WEP Key) or another passcode of a sort. Enter the passcode and you should be on your way. Let us know how it goes!
One of the first things you need to know is that the internet you use at home is only available at home.
To get an internet connection away from home, you need to go to places that offer a free wifi connection. Some public places like a mall, restaurant - like Starbucks, the Apple Store, and libraries offer free WiFi. Be sure to ask them about it first. because some times there are networks labeled "Free WiFi" but they don't even connect to the internet and really just look to steal your information - so always ask first!
Are you trying to access your laptop (which you leave at home) from another computer away from home?
If so, head over to www.logmein.com and sign up for a free account. It's a wonderfully easy way to get remote control of your machine from another location without worrying about the networking.
Are you trying to use your laptop on the road and still have Internet?
If so, you will need some method for your laptop to connect to the Internet. If your laptop has a wireless WiFi card you can go to some location that has wireless internet. Many locations (such as hotels, cafes, and coffee houses) have free or paid wireless Internet service.
You can also get a Wireless Aircard as your friend said. These are a fee-based service from cell companies such as Verizon or Sprint that give you a card that plugs into your laptop and uses the wireless cell network to give you Internet access.
