Make sure your in range. If using windows, goto start>run>services.msc (as an administrator) find Wireless Zero Config and make sure it is started or restart it. This should bring up the wireless icon near the clock, right click it and click view wireless networks (on xp). refresh the list and see if your network is displayed.
I'm not sure how the i-pod displays wireless SSID's but you may have your SSID hidden, which would have to be reconfigured on the router or you could go to "change priority of wifi networks" then manually enter the SSID name and connection info and set it as the highest priority. Also if your using other wireless software besides windows. Try going into that program and setting it to use windows wireless zero config service, I've had better luck w/ it over Dlink,Belkin and even Intel's software.

In addition check the driver by right-clicking on "My Computer">manage>device properties under network adapters if you see a yellow exclamation you need to reinstall your driver, A red X would indicate that it is disabled and needs re-enabled.

Hp netbook not picking up wireless network?


Are you sure your hubby is picking up the wireless from his phone or is he just getting a signal from a cell phone tower?

The reason I ask is that once you hit the button to set the router back to the factory default, the wireless on the router is turned off.

You have to go into the router and enable the wireless and give it a SSID (unless you want the Dlink default) and you have to give it a password if you want it secured.

Remove the neighbor's network from the preferred network list.
add your own network in the list. If your router is old router then upgrade the firmware of the router. Firmware is the software of the router.
You have connected your laptop to the router, to secure the wireless network. When you connect the laptop to the router, make sure that the wireless network connection will be disabled.
Once you change the wireless settings, enable the wireless connection and connect to your network.

Cannot connect ipod touch to linksys router


Use an Ethernet cable to connect a computer to a port on the router.
Access the router's built-in web-interface, and run the "Wireless Networking Setup Wizard", to configure your wireless network,
and pick an SSID and pick a password.

Then, after restarting the router, enable the wireless networking on your iPod Touch, and it should find your SSID. Enter your password, and you will get connected.

Wireless security-enabled network


That should be in your router under "wireless", and then "security" Make sure all your devices share and support the security you haver picked. In other words if you pick WPA2, you should prolly pick WPA2/mixed with TKIP/AES, ect. Dont pick WEP unless you have an older card. Its too easy to crack.

Wireless not detected


Are you broadcasting your SSID 'Network ID" If not you won't see a wireless network if "SSID Broadcast" is turned off in the router.

Login to your router config page and enable 'Broadcast SSID"

Problem with Toshiba wireless conection


Hi,

If you have your router set-up with security enabled, you should try to re-set the router and then go back onto the routers "control panel" and re-setup the security. You can find out the correct way to reset the router and the correct address to enter into the browser to access the routers control panel by going to the router makers website and checking under Support

Youe broadband router is working ok with the broadband cable.So it is configured with the broadband cable.Now,to work with the wireless internet,you have to configured the wi-fi router to work internet.You can see the wi-fi connection but unless & untill you will configure wi-fi router it must not work or if before it was working with the wi-fi then you can check the wi-fi router setting because it might change by mistake.Surely it will work after configurating wi-fi router.
