    What are you trying to connect to? Your wireless router? A neighbor's unsecure connection? A hotspot somewhere?

As long as it is on it will automatically pick up any signals close. You must be in range of any Wi Fi signal. You can pick up signals in places like airports or internet cafes as such. These are unsecure free ways to get internet service. If you have a desktop connected to a router with an access point you could pick up service from it within your home. You can secure these safely.Hope this clarifies things for you. Most laptops have a switch somewhere to turn the wireless on and off.

Have you tried going to device manager in the control panel find your wireless adapter driver and click on update driver? hopefully this will then find a driver update if not you could try the manufacturers web site for the latest driver.

If you have a wireless router then yes you can use a wifi dongle. The only reason BT users can is that BT comes with a free wireless router (bt homehub) Max

I cannot get the wirelss connection of the sbg900 to work with my laptop.


make sure you have internet connection, and make sure wifi is enabled (turned on) on both the modem and the laptop, the default wpa-psk is either on the bottom or on the back of the modem, if the wifi is turned on you will be prompted to enter that wpa-psk into the password field when you try and connect to the wireless, other than that i will need more details to properly address your issue and give you a good step by step instruction to resolve the issue for you

Access the routers admin page with the hardwired pc.  http://*gateway*  right click network status on pc and get gateway.  Google the model you have for the default passwords.  Setup your wifi security then do the same to your laptop and attempt to connect again.  Bad settings somewhere.
