Is your companies wifi broadcasting it's SSID? If not make sure that the broadcast option is on broadcast.

Having gone so far, I think the next thing you should do now is to get to the wireless properties and then assign an IP Address, Subnet mask and the Default Gateway for the Internet and you will be amazed to be connected. If you have not disabled and enabled the wireless device you may do that before proceeding to the step above. The pc should be restarted after the exercise ok. Good luck

Cant connect to internet


Well, I may be an 18 yr. old and I may be no wiz but I'm big into computers and there are several solutions to this. 1) If there is a password put in the wi-fi, you need to: have a device in which will be able to put in the type of security and/or put in the EXACT password. 2) Make sure it is YOUR wi-fi you're trying to connect to. And 3) If 1 and 2 don't work, contact the company of which your wi-fi was bought from. I hope this explaination was helpful for your problem.

My netbook will not go online I have tried my home wi fi and 2 diffrent public wifi


Hi,
try to do the below troubleshooting :
1) Boot up your netbook. 2) Login to windows. wait until windows finish loading. 3) Make suer your WiFi is enable. Search for the button of keyboard shortcut like 'fn' + 'f2' (wifi symbol). 4) Search for wifi network nearby. 5) connect to one of them. 6) Usually, public enable wifi is using a DHCP setup. Go to you wifi adapter setup page and make sure it's already on DHCP mode. 7) You should be able to connect to the wifi network (public DHCP enable) by now. 8) If you still can't connect to the wifi, means its not a public DHCP enable network or you got a wifi adapter problem.
Good luck ;)

You need to remove all your existing preferred wireless connection from your Network and sharing Center by clicking the manage wireless networks and removing each one by right-clicking each and select remove.

In xp, open view available networks and click the change advanced settings and remove all existing preferred networks then try to connect again to the wireless network you're trying to connect.

I have a medion computor which is unable to connect to my wireless broadband. The wireless network is recognised, but it doesn't connect. i also have a laptop, but this connects to the wireless broadband....


first off it would be helpful to know some more details, do you know the answers to these questions? also i assume you are connecting to a wifi router in your home network.
1) is there a password for the wireless network you must configure? 2) what operating system are you using? 3) if the OS is windows, do you know if you are using the wireless network settings panel that is part of windows, or does it have another brand name when you click on the wireless or network icon?
some possible causes i can think of are:
1) settings got reset and it cant connect without a password or confirmation to join an unsecured network 2) a new network popped up near the one computer that doesnt work and is being preferred due to signal strength although it is not a valid choice for you to get online 3) in the case of windows, software provided by the wireless hardware manufacturer is fighting with the windows wireless configuration 4) the wifi card in the computer is broken
