The unsecure public network nay be using mac address filtering. In this case, the network will show as being unsecured, and will even allow you to connect in some cases, but then will not allow you to surf once connected.

My computer doesnt want it connect to internet,, appear the connection icon but when the page try to open , it cant do


Please follow the steps provided below:

Q: Basic Wireless Troubleshooting
A:
Wireless Troubleshooting
The following steps will help determine if the wireless card in the system is functioning properly.
IMPORTANT:
Please go through all the troubleshooting steps. If the wireless card is functioning properly, please check the network configuration. Acer America can not assist with configuring the network.
Before you start:
  • Make sure there is a wireless router or wireless access point.
  • The wireless router/access point is plugged in.
  • Refer to the owners manual to ensure the wireless adapter is on (you can turn the wireless card on and off by pressing a clear button)
  • Contact the internet service provider to make sure ther account is active and the network is connected in a way that supports their configuration.
If the computer was working properly at an earlier time:
If the laptop was working fine, do a System Restore which rolls the system back to the last known working configuration. System Restore is located in System Tools under Accessories. Here is a link to explain the use of this feature:
http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;306084
To find the wireless network:
1. Click on Start winxpstart%20button.jpg then click on "Control Panel."
xpmenu.jpg 2. In the Control Panel window, click on "Network and Internet Connections."

xpcontrolpanel.jpg
3. In the "Network and Internet Connections" window, click on "Network Connections."

networkconnect.jpg 4. Once in Network Connections, right-click on the wireless connection then select "View available wireless networks"
5. If the wireless network is a secured network, please refer to the manual of the wireless router to make it unsecured for the purpose of testing the wireless network.
NOTE: Acer does not recommend leaving a wireless network unsecured and is not responsible for data accessed due to unsecured wireless networks.
6. If the wireless network is listed, the wireless adapter is functioning properly. If unable to connect to the wireless router, go through "Before you start" at the beginning of this article.

How do I make my iPod Touch Connect to an Unsecure Network


<p>Unsecured wireless Internet networks are available in many cafes and public spaces. An unsecured network is a wireless Internet connection that does not require a password. Use your iPod Touch Wi-Fi capability to connect to these networks and the Internet. Although excellent for surfing and email, avoid carrying out banking or financial information into an unsecured network, because there is a possibility that the signal is intercepted. <br /> <p><br /> <p>1. Open the Settings menu of your iPod Touch. It is the gray gear icon on the home screen. <br /> <p><br /> <p>2. Tap "WiFi" and move it to "On" if needed. If your Wi-Fi is already activated, you will see a pop-up asking if you have the unsecured network. Some companies, like Starbucks, have a "Log In" screen appears automatically. <br /> <p><br /> <p>3. Click "Yes" or "Join" for the network to automatically connect when prompted. The text may vary depending on the company, and you may need to read and agree to the terms and conditions statement. If no login screen appears, wait until you play for scanning available Wi-Fi signals. The list is displayed. <br /> <p><br /> <p>4. Select the network name you want to join the list. An unsecured network has a password, so you will not be asked to give. <br /> <p><br /> <p>5. Click on "automatic network in the future" when asked if you want to do. <br /> <p><br /> <p>6. Wait until the light of the Wi-Fi indicator in the upper left corner of the touch. This indicates that you are online and ready to ride. <br />

Laptop stopped connecting via wifi to home network.


The wireless settings in the Belkin has been setup with encryption.
You can restore the Belkin back to the factory default by powering up the Belkin and press the RESET button for 7 secs.
It is not wise to leave your wireless router unsecured, anyone can access your network and Internet connection and use up your allocated download limit. Once you exceed your download limit you could be slug with addition charges - this depends upon your contract with your ISP.
For details on securing your wireless router and configuring the wireless card in the laptop, please click on this link and follow my instructions :-

I just got a HP Pavilion dv4000 what will i need to have internet access at a motel or somewhere that it detects wireless networks I dont even know where to start the basics would be a big help thanks


In a lot of cases they are setup to find wireless signals automatically. If you are in a place with a wifi, you should see an icon in the bottom right of the screen. If you click on that it should show you what networks are available and if they are unsecured, which most motels are, you can click on "connect" and that should do it. If you go on as "public" it protects you a little better. Make sure you always update your virus software when roaming.

My Dell Inspiron 1525 works well finding unsecured


I don't know if you are using the standard Windows wireless LAN management, or the special DELL application for that. Anyway, try looking for a profile of that particular network in WLAN management (either Manage Wireless Networks in Windows networking, or something to that effect in in that DELL WLAN profile management) and deleting that profile, making it possible to search for it again "for the first time", so to say.

Laptop connect to public wireless network, but not internet


Sometimes they set the wireless to be unsecured. But you have to pay to use them.
Please check with the hotel staff about setting it to use.
If its completely free, double click the network icon on the task bar, click support tab and click repair.
