Go to your control panle then select network connections, if you see your wireless icon, right click it and try selecting repair first.

Also, if the wireless icon is in the lower right of the monitor, right click it and view wireless networks, look for you router, then select it. Then select connect.

    I assumne you also updated the new password in your laptop?

    if not do that first.

    Nexrt, do the repair again as mentioned above. What signal strength is the laptop receiving?

    Also, how far away is the router from the laptop?

  • answer4fix Apr 22, 2009

    Explain what you mean by won't hold a connection? If signal is excellent it should not drop, is the router you are connected to the at the top of the list for preferred connection?? on the view wireless networks preferences of the order of networks to connect to first?

Wont hook up to a connection for internet i have wireless asking for a password from belalliant

When hooking your wii up to the internet make sure you are connecting to your wireless network that you have set up at home. Make sure you have the correct password that is set up from your router setup. The password is not usually the same password you use to connect to your router via but a different password you set up from within your router settings. You may need to refer to your routers user manual to set this up.

How do I hook up both a laptop and a desktop to the internet?

This is a quick setup for you, depending on the model of router you have. If this is a new router follow these steps

  1. Unplug the power to your Cable or DSL Modem
  2. Take the Ethernet Cable that goes from your modem and plug it in to the WAN or INTERNET port on the back of the router
  3. Plug your Desktop PC in to one of the remaining LAN outlets.
  4. Plug the power to your modem back in and wait 90 seconds
  5. Plug the power to your router in and wait another 90 seconds
  6. On your desktop computer open your browser (Internet Explorer or Firefox) and try one of these websites
  1. You will be prompted for a username and password. Depending on the make and model of router this can vary. This site can help you figure this out:
  2. Once you are in your router you are looking for a Wireless Option. On this tab you will need to set your Network Name or SSID. This will be the name you use to locate your wireless network later.
  3. Next, you will want to look for a wireless security tab. This allows you to setup your security. Options include WEP and WPA encryption. If Available, choose WPA2
  4. Next, it will ask you for a pass phrase or password to protect your wireless connection, this should be tough to guess.
  5. Save all the changes and go to your laptop
  6. On your laptop, beside the time in the bottom corner look for the icon with two monitors.
  7. Right click on the monitors and choose connect to a network
  8. Double click the network you named in step 2. You will be prompted for your password, enter the password you chose in step 4.
That should be it. If you continue to have difficulties please respond with the make and model of wireless router you have and I'll provide you with a more specific help.

D-link DI-624 wireless router connectivity problems (DNS suffix)

Might I suggest that you reset the router to its default configuration by pressing and holding the reset button until it reboots. This way you will be dealing with the default configuration. Then try to use it. Remember the default login ID is admin and the password is Password or admin. Lets hope this helps
