SOURCE: wireless connection

1. Position your wireless router (or wireless access point) in a central location.When possible, place your wireless router in a central location in your home
2. Move the router off the floor and away from walls and metal objects (such as metal file cabinets).
3. Replace your router's antenna.The antennas supplied with your router are designed to be omni-directional, meaning they broadcast in all directions around the router
4. Replace your computer's wireless network adapter.Wireless network signals must be sent both to and from your computer.
5. Add a wireless repeater.Wireless repeaters extend your wireless network range without requiring you to add any wiring
6. Change your wireless channel.
7. Reduce wireless interference.If you have cordless phones or other wireless electronics in your home, your computer might not be able to "hear" your router over the noise from the other wireless devices
8. Update your firmware or your network adapter driver.Router manufacturers regularly make free improvements to their routers
9. Pick equipment from a single vendor.While a Linksys router will work with a D-Link network adapter, you often get better performance if you pick a router and network adapter from the same vendor
10. Upgrade 802.11b devices to 802.11g.802.11b is the most common type of wireless network, but 802.11g is about five times faster

The wireless card has dropped the IP address, to get the wireless router to issue the wireless card with a new IP address, right click on the wireless connection (the one with the red X) and left click on Repair.
When the red X disappears then you can connect to the Internet.

SOURCE: my aspire 1690 refuses to connect to my wireless

this is pretty easy, you must remove the encryption(password) code from your wireless profile in your windows and write it again correctly, this happens due to many reasons, but it will finally work.

I don't know how to turn on the wireless capability on myself?


What type of computer Desktop or Laptop & Make ???...

If your computer will not connect to a wireless Internet signal, one of the first things to check is whether your computer's wireless switch is turned on.
Many laptop computers have a switch located on the exterior of the computer that controls its ability to connect to wireless networks.
This switch can be accidentally turned off, preventing users from connecting to the Internet.

Determine if your computer's wireless connectivity has been disabled by viewing the network icon in the lower toolbar on your computer's desktop.
When there is a disruption in your computer's Internet connection, the icon will have a red X through it. For further information, go to the computer's Network and Sharing Center where you can troubleshoot connectivity issues and view available wireless networks.
If the computer isn't recognizing any wireless connections (and you're sure that there are wireless signals in your area), the likely problem is that the wireless switch is turned off.
Locate the wireless switch on your computer.
It may be located on either side of the laptop or along the back or front.
If you aren't sure whether your computer has a wireless switch, check the user guide that came with the unit.
Determine whether the switch is currently in the "On" or "Off" position.
The switch will be clearly labeled.
Push the switch in the direction of the "On" position to ensure that it is turned on.
If the switch was already turned on, see if there is a keyboard combination that will activate your laptop's wireless capability.
The key combination for your laptop will depend on your computer's manufacturer, but will generally involve a combination of the Function, Control or Alt and the F1 to F12 keys.
Check your user manual for your computer's key combination.

I would like to know when it say laptop with built in wireless. Does that mine i already got internet service on it. Or i have to buy USB modem.


Hello Blac,

All the laptops available in market have built in wireless 802.11 b/g/n or 802.11 b/g/n Bluetooth® wireless networking. It means that you can access the internet via Wi-Fi or through Wi-Fi hotspots. In wireless connectivity you do not require the wired connection to access the internet. In home you can connect the laptop via wireless connection using the home networking router available in market. The advantage of wireless connection is that you can use the internet in your home anywhere with in 100 meters of range with proper wireless signals. You will require to get the internet connection from the ISP(Internet Service Provider).

Right click on the wireless computer icon in the lower right hand corner of the screen. This will appear to be a computer emitting radio waves.
Select the "Connect to Available Networks" button
Choose the network to which you wish to connect from the list.

Press the "Connect" button to sync the connection, enabling your wireless.

How do i unlock my internet so i can acess wireless off it


Are you trying to connect a wireless capable device to a wireless connection?

If Yes of if unsure, to connect a WiFi capable device to a wireless connection you will need the following: a cable modem, a wireless router, Ethernet, a WiFi capable device.

You would connect the wireless router to the modem follow the installation manual instructions for the router to properly setup the router, different brands require different setup procedures.

Once the router is up and running find the SSID (wireless network name you gave the wireless router during setup) for the wireless signal. Click on the SSID in the list of available networks and enter in the passphrase when prompted to.

If all is successful you should connect to a wireless network

Let me know if that helped or if you need additional information or clarification.

How can I turn on the wireless capability on my Asus G60VX laptop? the switch on the front left is on and still nothing. trouble shooting says wireless capability is turned off. it was working fine untill...


I can figure out that your laptop runs Windows Vista. Go to Control panel, then Network and Sharing centre and then go to Manage Network Connections and see if the Wireless Network Connections icon is disabled, make sure it is enabled and not connected. Try disabling and enabling it again. If still no go, try to manually turn off the wireless switch and turn it back ON. Check the light status (if any), confirm the error message too. If still, it seems not to be working, then the internal switching might have gone bad. You need to get the laptop serviced.

Arvind
