Do you have problems connecting to any other wireless network with your iPhone?

Have you tried using the forget this network option on your iPhone for your wireless network followed by trying to connect to the network again, and/or using the reset network settings option on your iPhone which erases all previously saved wi-fi connections that you have successfully connected to with your iPhone?

I want to activate wifi on my laptop Model: HP COMPAQ HSTNN-A25C. Please advise the process.


Hello,
The wifi switch will be in one of the following places. It may have a wifi symbol which will look like radio waves. I hope this helps.

  1. Check the front edge of the laptop for a switch that goes from left to right. The light will normally go from Orange to Blue
  2. check the side edges for the wifi switch
  3. Look at the top of the Keyboard above the number keys to the right. you may find a button there.
  4. Or you can manually turn on your wifi.Click the "Start" button, and click "Control Panel." Click "Network and Internet." Click "Change adapter settings." Right-click on "Wireless Network Connection," and select "Enable" from the menu.
  5. Once you see the wifi symbol at the bottom right of the Laptop screen (near the date/time) click on it and choose your wireless network.

Iphone 4s no network coverage at home


By no network coverage do you mean no cellular signal or can't connect to your home wifi? If wifi trouble push settings button on iphone. Select and turn on wifi. It will search for available wireless networks. Choose your home wifi, should be the strongest signal, most bars. If you don't know your ssid , look on the sticker on the modem. For instance ssid at&t 2345. Once you select your ssid you need to enter password which is also found on the sticker on modem. Enter password and select join. You should now be connected to your wifi. This will always reconnect automatically when you leave and come back home. If not wifi issue, are you just too far from cell tower to get good signal?

I have a linksys wrt54 g router and cant connect to the kindle


If you look on the Kindle's Home page, it should show a battery on the left side. There should be a ramp of bars to the left of the battery showing a few darkened bars and to the left of that the word Wi-Fi should appear. If it does not appear, does the word "off" show to the left of the battery icon? If yes, select Menu and Turn Wireless On. If neither of these appear, then the Kindle might not support wifi. If you have never been able to connect wirelessly anywhere with the Kindle, then you probably need to get in contact with their help desk. If you have been able to connect to wifi before, then I assume that you know how to use Menu to select Settings on the Kindle from the Home page, select the wifi from the list and connect to the wifi of your choice using passwords etc., so your problem is with the router and you would have to troubleshoot that. Does wifi work with anything else, etc. One thing you can try if the Kindle has previously worked on wifi is to press and hold the on button for 20 seconds to cause the unit to reset. However, if the wifi isn't working, I think this will make the Kindle unusable because I think it reloads a bunch of stuff from the internet. The Kindle user's guide should describe what to do and whom to contact.

I recently found an Apple iPhone 4 16GB in the mall parking lot. I was just wondering, since it has Wi-Fi capabilitys, would I be tracked by the network provider (Bell) if I was to use the internet on the...


ha ha !!!!!,I don't think so.

First of all what the Apple iPhone was made for in the first place was not for you network provider to be tracking you where ever you go, it's for your own use alone. Network providers just gives you access to operate the phone by providing network for your access your Apple iPhone.

How does Wi-Fi work on a Apple iPhone ?

Apple's iPhone is a multimedia connectivity tool. As such, the iPhone employs a sophisticated system to keep you connected to the web via WiFi signals so that you can stay up to date with email, mapping and media. To use the iPhone's WiFi feature just follow these steps.

Instructions on how to use Wi-Fi on your iPhone.........


Tap a network. If you have not yet used your iPhone's WiFi or if you're in a new WiFi area, the iPhone will show you a list of available networks. Tap the network that you want to connect to in order to connect. If there is a password required a little lock icon appears. Enter the password to connect to locked networks and continue to surf the web.


Monitor your signal. As you use your iPhone, especially if you're moving around, you should take a look at the signal strength of the connection. The strength is indicated by a small, black broadcast symbol that stacks arches, or rounded bars, on top of one another. The more bars there are the better the signal.


Make connecting to WiFi automatic or manual. The iPhone is equipped to automatically search for available networks and connect you to one. If you do not want the phone to search for networks, select the "WiFi" option on the phone's menu. Then select either the on or off option of the "Ask To Join Networks." Turning this option off requires that you find networks manually.


Forget a network. Once you connect to a WiFi network once the iPhone automatically remembers the network and connects you to it at a later opportunity. To forget a network so you don't get automatically connected choose the "WiFi" option on the menu. Then tap the right arrow button next to one of the networks that the iPhone already remembers. Then tap "Forget This Network" to erase the phone's memory of the network. That all, Very easy to use too.


Hope that helps.

Thanks for using fixya.....

Iphone 2g unlocked,cannot connect w/ edge. wifi is working


Jailbreaking your iPhone to 2.2 is going to mess up your phone. I've got a jailbroken 2.2 iPod Touch and it's ok - a friend of mine also tried to jailbreak his iPhone to 2.2 and lost connections as well.

Downgrade back to 2.1 and you should be ok.
