Make sure you don't have your wireless turned off on your laptop. Sometimes there is a button on the laptop.

or. Go to Control panel on laptop -- then system --then device manager and check to see if there are any "explanation points" on any of your devices listed. If so, right click on the one with the "exp point" and hit update driver. Then follow the process on the screen. Sometimes you may have to select roll back driver to get it working again.

or

The wireless adapter was disabled in the same device manager. if so, right click on the adapter line and check to make sure it is enabled.

Hopefully my explanation isn't too confusing. I appologize, I'm relative new at typing directions.

Hope this helps.

I can wire connect but to the internet through the router, but the wireless connection is not working anymore


Is your wireless adapter enabled on the device you are trying to connect to ( is it a laptop)? Do you see your wireless SSID when you search for Available Wireless Networks? shut down the laptop and start up the laptop. reaquire the signal.

No internet connection?


The best way is to get a data cable and connect directly to the laptop. Your laptop should recognize the router and prompt you to make this your wireless device. Once through the setup you can unplug the cable and you should be set for wireless again. The one other thing to check is make sure the wireless button on the computer is on. Mine is on the front but I have seen them all over. Check the latter first.

Thinkpad Lenovo - suddenly no internet


How do you connect to the internet? Are you going through a wireless router or using a usb device provided by a cellphone provider?

Maybe you need to check your settings on the broadband service since you mentioned it. You could also reinstalled the broadband application if it is not solved.

I bought this US Robotics wireless (model 5461 (Maxg)) maybe 3 years ago. I haven't used it in maybe 2 years and now it wouldn't work anymore. I recently switched apartments and computer, it used to work...


1.Log into router. Using either 192.168.0.1 to 192.168.1.1 in a browser window that is ( internet Explorer or Firefox)
2. Verify wireless router name( on the computer) >>> ( on/off) ( router status window)
3.Note router name you are connecting to.
4.. Check the laptop do ipconfig /all to see current IP addresses.
5. Set the laptop up in the router by WEP KEY or MAC address. This set up in the "security tab" in the router. using 192.168.0.1 or 192.168.1.1 to access through a browser.
6.Note router name you are connecting to.
7. Move the laptop about 20ft away and try to log on to the internet.
This is for all routers to set up wirelessly.
8. check for firmware update at the manufacturers site for your model router
9. cell phones, cordless phones, digital TV's, can affect the data signal from a router. Also distance from the router can be a factor. If your router is in a basement place the router to a upper floor and center it in the room.

Trying a add another desk top to an existing Belkin wireless G router at home. Right now there's a desk top and laptop working off this router.Try several times and still can't connect to internet.


Make sure the Belkin wireless is the only device directly connecting to your internet service provider's router/modem. Usually that port is labelled "WAN" or even "Internet". The Belkin should have extra ports/jacks for WIRED connections, right? You then connect the PC into the other remaining ports/jacks on the Belkin (if they're wired) or just use the wireless for the laptop if the laptop has wireless. After getting the wireless going, though, you should lock it down by using WPA encryption key if possible.

Linksys Power cut problem


With regard to power cuts, i highly suggests you to buy a UPS (Uninterruptable Power Supply) to prevent further damage to your router. You can simply reconfigure the wireless settings of the router by accessing the router's Setup Page. Go to http://192.168.1.1, go to wireless tab and you can change the network name as well as enable the wireless security.
