First think is you need to configure your laptop so that it can be compatable with the router, for that you need to connect your router to the labtop using ethernet cable, once the set-up wizard is completed you need to enable wireles so that your laptop will be in position to talk to your router with out any wire connected.

A lot of times there is a function that actually turns on the wi-fi. You will need to check with the manufacturer to find out how on your specific laptop. Sometimes it is in the BIOS and others its a button combo on the keyboard. My HP is the DVD button on the top row activates the wi-fi.

Packard Bell seems to have a decent support site here: This article may help, but need your model number to go any further.

No network connection on my easynote TE

Wired or wireless? If wireless try a Ethernet cable to eliminate the wireless device. If wireless connection, is your wireless adapter enabled? Driver in working order? Update driver or roll back driver? Have you updated the laptop?

Cannot switch on wireless connection Packard bell laptop does not have switch

Wireless problems with a Packard Bell PC or laptop can be caused by a variety of issues.

The best troubleshooting resources are the documentation that came supplied with the computer, and the Support section of the Packard Bell website.

Unable To Detect Wireless Network

If the Packard Bell machine is unable to detect a wireless network, the computer itself or the network could be at fault.

Check that a wireless signal is being broadcast via another PC or device, and check that are wireless adapter is installed, complete with the latest drivers, which are available at the Packard Bell website.

Unreliable Wireless Network

If the wireless connection is unreliable, intermittent or very slow, it suggests a problem with the Wi-Fi broadcast.

Try positioning the computer closer to the router broadcasting the wireless signal, or use a signal booster to improve the range.

Download and install the latest driver updates from the Packard Bell website and through the Windows Update tool.

Unable To Connect To Wireless Network

If the computer can detect the network but is unable to connect to it, a network security key may be required. This should have been configured by the person who set up the network. Consult the documentation that came with your router for details of how to change it or generate a new key.

Hope this helps

Keep losing connection

hi there, since no one in your network is experiencing the problem, possible cause would be the wireless adapter of your laptop. try to reinstall your wireless network card driver and observe if you will be getting the same issue. if same issue occured, then you have to call your manufacturer for replacement of the wireless card
