Computer says,"connected to network signal strength excellent", but I cannot connect to internet


Can you connect to the Internet using the LAN cable?
Have you configured the wireless card in your laptop with the router's wireless settings?

Network Key (WEP, WPA, WPA2 Encryption key)To connectyour computer to a wireless router, you click the Refresh networklist, then Choose your wireless network and then click Connectto your secured Wireless Network, it will asks for a Network Keybefore allowing you to connect into your wireless network. This NetworkKey is either the WEP, or WPA or WPA2 Encryption key that is used toconfigure the Wireless Router. The Passphrase is an alternate way tosetup the Encryption key.
When you are requested for a Network Key, you can just enter the Passphrasethat was used to configure the Encryption key in the wireless router.http://www.fixya.com/support/r5270415-network_password_network_addressFor information on securing your wireless network,configuring the wireless router and configuring the wireless card in thelaptop/computer, please click on this link and follow my instructions :-http://www.fixya.com/support/r3559128-wireless_router_security

Hello rennlugent, there can be "severals things" that may have cause the Computer to lose the "connection."

  • There may have been a 'change' in the Computer [Configuration Settings], without your 'knowledge'?
  • You may have 'Lost' the {Network File Sharing}, which 'Links' all the Computers to (1) one "Network?"
  • The Computer is at a "Different Local?"
  • It may be a "temporary glitch," do to weather change?
  • The "Signal" may be or was 'weak at the time?"
!Warning:
Installing "New" Programs, or 'any' kind of Software; can 'change "Systems Configurations"

I 'suggest' you check in (2) two areas:
The first is;
  • Click on the "Wireless Network Connection."
  • You may have {Two} on the "Taskbar" _809.jpg
  • See: if you are in "Network Discovery / Sharing [Mode].
  • Go to the "Network" shortcut, from the "Start Menu."
  • Check to make 'sure' you are "Sharing the Network Files."
  • The one from this {picture on the right}, is the "Connection [Status] Icon."
  • The {smaller, on the left, is the "Network Troubleshooting Icon"
  • Check (both); one for your Connection Status?
  • Click, on the other for "Fixing the Network Connection."
!Important: Check to make 'sure' the Connection isn't {Disabled}?

If this information helped? Return and give a "Helpful Rating," please!
Thanks, paul7of9

My icon says I only have 80% signal strength, is


80% is a good signal strength....but if you want to increase the signal strength, then you need to move the wireless router to a very ventilated area, also the router should be placed atleast 5 feet away from other electronic devices like, modem, ups, microwave ovens,refrigerators etc.... also there should be a line of sight between the router and the wi-fi adapter... but in order to connect to a wireless network 25% of signal strength is enough....

What is the Operating system on the laptop ?
If it is XP then in the bottom right hand corner you will find Wireless network connection ( looks like 1 computer monitor). Use that icon to connect to the wireless network.
If it is windows Vista, then in the bottom right hand corner you will find 2 computer monitor icon. Use that icon to connect to the wireless network.
If it is Windows 98/ME/2000 then use the adapter utility to connect to the wireless network.
For MAC you will see the AIRPORT icon at the top.

Check the wireless settings of the router first . Make sure that you have all the wireless settings of the router. If you are not sure about the settings, then open the router set up and check the settings.

2. Access the router, usually with http://192.168.1.1 or http://www.routerlogin.com.
3. Login to the router with the Username as "admin" and Password as "password" (please note that the Username and Password are case sensitive).
4. Click on Wireless Settings (under Setup) from the left menu.
5. Select security options as WPA-PSK. Enter a Password in the passphrase box. Apply the settings.
Configure XP computer:

1. Right click on My Computer icon and go to Manage.
2. Go to Services then go to Service and Applications.
3. Double click on Wireless Zero Configuration.
4. Change the Start Up Type to Automatic and click on Apply.
5. Click on Start and press OK to close the window.
6. Go to 'Control Panel', Click on Classic View in the left hand side menu and then open 'Network Connections'.
7. Right-click on the wireless Network Connection icon and select 'Properties'.
8. Go to the 'Wireless Networks' tab.
9. Check the option 'Use Windows to Configure this Wireless Connection' and click 'OK'.

Now please perform the following instructions to connect to the wireless network:
1. Go to 'Control Panel', Click on Classic View in the left hand side menu and then open 'Network Connections'.
2. Right-click on the wireless Network Connection icon and select 'Properties'.
3. Click on the 'wireless network' tab.
4. Under Preferred networks if you see any name in the list then highlight the name and click remove. Click OK.

I cant access internet exp. from my laptop even with good signal


Access the preferred network settings (if you are using the Windows wireless setup - right click on the wireless icon + view available wireless networks + preferred networks) for your machine and edit the listing for your wireless network, you'll need to uncheck the box that says something to the effect of "an authentication key is provided for me" and enter your security key in the boxes provided.

If it still fails - you may want to remove your network from the preferred listing and add it manually, making sure that the authentication is turned off as described and with your security key entered twice.

Can't get it setup to work without being plugged in to my laptop


If you have Windows XP and there's is no extra security set up on the router then connecting is easy.

In the bottom-right corner you'll see a small icon that looks like a computer. The screen is likely blue on it. Additionally there are two faint crescents near the top of the icon. That's the Wireless Zero-Configuration tool. If you double click on that icon a window will pop up showing the names of nearby connections, their signal strength, and whether or not security is enabled. By default the name of the DI-524 is "default." If it is not secured, click on on and then click the connect button. Windows may then ask if you want to connect to the unsecured network. Click on Connect Anyway and the configuration tool will connect you to the router.

Xbox 360 wireless adapter not finding network


Hello Sir,

Reset your AX by holding a pin or pen tip and count to 20.
Plug Airport Express
Wait a few minutes

1. Open Airport Utility
2. Manual Setup
3. Airport Icon -> Wireless Mode -> Join a wireless network
4. Network Name -> Enter the SSID of your Linksys router
5. Choose the same wireless security that you are using on your Linksys Router
6. Wireless Password -> Enter the wireless key that is on your Linksys router.

In the Music Icon, you should be able to find "Enable iTunes"

AX will continue to blink for a bit, perhaps a minute, while it searches and connects to the Linksys Router.

Should turn green.

Good luck.
