My internal wireless does not work. Is there another way i can enable wireless? Ive heard about wireless network adapter cards but dont know much about them. please help :)

Other than repairing the internal wireless, obtaining a Wireless USB Adapter is one way to deal with this. (USB must be properly functioning on your notebook of course). These devices look very much like a USB memory stick.

Hi i cant connect using wireless on my lenovo.

Welcome to fix ya

If you are having problems connecting wirelessly using your lenovo G550 here are steps that you could try

1. Press FN+F5 ( this turns the wireless adapter on/off)

2. Make sure that the wireless switch is toggled on. The wireless switch is located on the front of the laptop.

3. Make sure that the drivers for your wireless adapter is properly installed. To do this click on start then type device manager. click on device manager. click on the arrow next to network adapters. Make sure that the wireless adapter does not have a yellow exclamation point next to it. Also if you dont see your wireless adapter here check for a yellow question marrk in other device. If you dont have the driver you can download it here.

Wont conect to internet

do you have an internal wireless adapter? Is the switch switched to on? Are you close enough to the wireless router. Do you have the right security code selected for connection to router? I would try resetting router and modem if the above is not the problem.

My asus n61j won't connect to the Internet using internal adapter

Hi there, I just bought a new Asus NJ series, and all of a sudden my wireless dissapeared! I FOUND THE SULOTION, well, I hope it works for you. Look on the left side of your laptop, right at the front left side is a switch/button. I think I accidentally switched it of, but now everything is working fine!

Please help me get my wireless settin

  1. I assume that you mean you cannot see your wireless network in the "Available Networks" list?
  2. Yes, there will be a switch on the laptop to enable/disable wireless.
  3. Is your router set to broadcast SSID? If it isn't then you won't see it in the list of available networks.

Wireless stopped working on my msi laptop

No Wireless Connection Found in Range

Note: You need to use a computer hardwired to the router to check the wireless settings.

1. Please open any web browser like Internet Explorer or Netscape Navigator.
2. Connect to the router by typing or in the address field and click Enter or Return key.
3. A window will prompt for a user name and password. The default username is "admin" and the default password is "password".

Note: If it does not take password as the password, you might have changed it when you have run the NETGEAR Setup CD so please try other passwords. If you cannot remember the password, you need to reset the router and run the Setup CD to reconfigure it.

4. Click the Wireless Settings under Advanced tab.
5. Check the box under Enable Wireless Router Radio and Enable Wireless SSID Broadcast.
6. Click the Wireless Settings under Setup.
7. Change Channel (recommended are 1, 6 and 11).
8. Change the SSID to uniquely identify your network. You might have a similar SSID with your neighbor.

Note: Do not change the SSID if there are already other wireless computers that can connect to the network.

Other factors that you may consider when you are not able to view any available wireless network:

a. Switch for the wireless adapter is turned off
b. Distance between the wireless router and computer
c. Possible wireless interferences

Wireless connection

Hi Kazmerr

Re: Dell Latitude d600

Assuming you already turned your wireless, your distance should be in range fom your router. Turn off and on the switch  or you can press Fn+F2 to start your wireless connection.If thats a no go check your wireless client  and make sure no other wireless client is installed ie. your ISP wireless connection manager.

Other work around for this is : make sure you have enabled or started your wireless client for windows by ff the steps below : 

Win XP Sp2: start > control panel  classic view> administrative tools > services > then look for Wireless Zero Configuration and right click it and choose start or restart . After doing this you may check or view your available wireless network again.IF no go >

For winXP or VIsta ONLY
Go to start > control panel   { classic view } > system > device manager > Look for network adapter {+} sign > look for 802.11g wireless / or anything that says 'wireless' and make sure that theres no yellow question or excamation mark on it and IF none right click it and choose remove/uninstall> then restart PC > and try to view avaialable wireless again by ff the steps above.

{ tthis will refresh your wireless network hardware and software}

Note: for yellow exclamation marks or questions marks on your wireless adapter you MUST reinstall your DEll Wireless adapter. using you DELL System Recovery Disk.

In most instance it has somthing to do with your wireless switch on your laptop. With all possible steps porvided above doesnt woprk pls notify me. Thanks and good luck.
