It needs to be conected, try pluging the eithernet cable into the network socket and if that doesnt work you will have to reset the computer to factory settings in the safe mode and the way to do that is when you start up your computer keep pressing f2 and f12 and f9 one of those keys will bring you to a page with "safe mode" on it scroll down with the arrow keys and press enter on it then you should be able to do the rest.

please rate the help i have been to you.

Hi kwolf1847, Please do the following:
in network connection window Right clicktclick on wireless network, see if its enabled if Yes, right click on it and click on "view available wireless networks", if you find your home network, click on it and it may ask you to enter the "WEP or WPA" key if its a secure connection.
now see if that connects, if not you may need to reconfigure your home networking router.
reply with the name of the router, if you need assistance in configuring your wireless router..
Hope this resolves your issue.
your feedback is appreciated.
Askari :)

Frontier Modem Router

You need to set up the Wi-Fi on both the router and the PC.

It will default to the Ethernet connection, so don't forget to remove the cable if testing for wireless mode.

It seems as though my linksys wireless g router goes in and out of staying connected. Why is this???

Dear Check below things
1:if the distance between your router is more tahn what is it actually has to be,u might encounter this problem.u will have a sucessfull wireless network somwhere within the range of 35-40 feet and there are certain limitations if u are promised tht your router will broadcast signals upto 100-150 feet.most of them are just on papers.but u do have routers in the market which have the capability but the network has to be in a straight line and there should be no walls in between always remember tht wireless signals will,not work vertically they might (but u will have issues) works good in a horizondal way
2:do not keep the router inside a room and try to acess it from another room.your wireless signals are not strong enough to penetrate your walls or ceiling or flooring and be available to your computer
3:do not have devices like a cordless phone,a microwave owen or a mobile phone right next to the router or next to the computer tht you are working on.this will cause interference to the wireless signals and you will see the connection dropping whenever you you operate these devices.
if you cannot avoid any of these devices then try changin the channel number on the the router manufacturer.if this is done the router starts broadcasting signals in a different frequency.u might face another problem card actually has to respond to the signal given byt the router and has to chage its channel number automatically.for some reason if this does not happen you will have to do this manually
like in some (dell cards)letme tell you changin the channel number does work miracles
4:try updating the drivers for the wireless card.for this u need to contact the hardware manufacturer or you can contact the computer can also download the drivers from their respective websites ,in most cases this does fix the issue.
5:identify the software/programme that your wireless connection is general if you are runnning windows xp,WZC(wireless zero configuration) will take care of your connection.or if your are using the utlity of the card ,WZC will be disabled and the utilty will take care of the connection.
possibilities are there that the card utility itself can cause a mess.if u are using WZC make sure that the utilty of the card is not under the start up group.if this is the case then whenever you restart the computer your connection will be lost and you wil have to reconnect manually.this is because when u restart the computer the utlity software will force itself to manage the connection thus disabling WZC.
6:setting up high security to your network might at times cause u to loose the connection wep is a good form of security but wpa causes a problem especially when u have upgraded your OS to sv pack 2. wpa is actually a very good form of security
but has a lot of complications
it makes use of the a principle called hashing algorithm ,
the password tht u type in is scrambled every __ seconds depends on the refresh rate tht u have set which slowers the connection and might even lead to the connection dropping.
7:make sure you anti-virus programme is not the one which is causing the problem.a good antivrus programme comes with a built in firewall which ofcourse protects your computer but blocks your connection,if this is the case you have a workaround .you have to register the ip address of the router with tht anti-virus programme. (like in mcafee you have an option as trusted ip' might also have a similar option in norton as well.if possible try and disable personal firewall it helps really !! dont worry bout the security your router has got an inbuilt hardware firewall and tht'll take care of things.
8:mixing diff brands on the network does'nt really cause a problem,but i would recommend u going for products from the same company so tht u need not keep shuttling from one company to the other for support to find out if their hardware is the one tht is causing the problem.coz in networking evrything is interlinked.
9:also chk which part of your netowrk is causing the problem ,see if it is the router or the card.if it is the card then,you have options like updating the drivers if it has got something to do with the router then you can try upgrading the the manufacturer of the router for this.
10:power managerment does come into picture here.u can actually change the settings under the properties of the wireless card (advanced settings) set the power managerment to manual set it to maximum.also u have an option allow windows to turn off this device to save power,uncheck this.
if u are running on battery this option disables ur network card when ur charge is running low.

There is usually a "Connect" button on the devices (Mouse & Keyboard) and on the receiver the unit connected to the computer. Hit the "Connect" button on the receiver then the ones on the Mouse and Keyboard.

Hopefully that works...

If not comment back.

This has happened to my brother in-law several times! I have fixed it twice myself by downloading the driver package from Sierra Wireless DO NOT USE THE ATT SOFTWARE, at least in an Acer 6920, as it trashes Vista beyond repair. Have no idea why they keep selling this, and why they keep telling him to do it all over again. Didn't work from the very beginning, and the ATT salesman did the first install, telling him that he would just have to restart it at home and it would be "all better" - yeah right, now we know why he doesn't work for a real computer company!!!

Try using the Sony with an external wi fi adapter. The internal one could be bogus. Before adding new one, go into Device Manager and Disable the existing one in your Sony. Then add the new one with its software.
