The simplest way to solve the problem is by buying an Edimax nano USB wifi adapter. It is very small wifi adapter and it cost around $15.

Lost wi fi connection to our wireless network, tablet displays "turning off" under the wi fi settings.


I suggest to reinstall the wireless card driver first ..just in case, this will solve any driver issues and will make it functional in case the driver or the setting are corrupted..
To download the driver in case you do not have it on disk or saved somewhere ..just go to acer.com ...select downloads ...drivers and select the model and operation system you use..
download the wifi driver ..run it again ..and after that restart ..and try to make the connection again ...Check the wireless card in device manager to see if it shows in order ...and did not appear in yellow which indicates driver related issues..
also be sure you have network signal ..and the router is functional ..in case other computer is working with this network ..check to see if the connection actually works ..
To redo the connection ..just open the settings for wireless...and click scan for networks ...In the list of available connections ..select yours..and click connect ..insert password if needed.
Good luck !

I have sony vaio S. but the wirelees is not working no wireless host shown. how can i fix it?


Selecting the wireless function Follow the steps below to select the wireless function to be activated when you set the WIRELESS switch on your computer to on. Double-click (wireless switch icon) on the Notification area at the bottom right of the desktop.The Wireless Device Switch dialog box appears. Hints The appearance of the wireless switch icon changes depending on the selected wireless function. Point to the wireless switch icon to display the selected wireless function. Alternatively, you can right-click the wireless switch icon and select "show Wireless Device Switch settings" to display the Wireless Device Switch dialog box. Select the desired wireless function from "Wireless LAN" or "Bluetooth Device". Notes 5 GHz Wireless LAN is available on certain models only. You must select at least one wireless function to perform wireless communications. The 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz Wireless LAN functions employ different frequency bandwidths, thus are not compatible with each other. Checking the check box for both "Enable 2.4 GHz Wireless LAN" and "Enable Bluetooth Device" may cause poor communication performance or a connection loss due to electromagnetic interference. Click OK. The message "Setting up the wireless devices. Process may take several minutes. Please wait." appears first, then the Wireless Device Switch dialog box is closed, and finally the dialog box that describes what to do with the icon on the Notification area appears. Note While the message "Setting up the Wireless Devices. Process may take several minutes. Please wait." is displayed, do not: place your computer into power saving mode. turn off Windows or log off from the current user. turn on and off the WIRELESS switch. Confirm the settings and click OK. The dialog box about the icon on the Notification area closes. Hint If you check the "Don't show this dialog in the future" check box, the dialog box will not appear next time you close the Wireless Device Switch dialog. To analyze the network condition You can analyze the network condition if you select either or both of the wireless functions under "Wireless LAN" in step 2 above. Click the "Diagnose" button to start Windows Network Diagnostics. When the network analysis is complete, the result is displayed. If any problems are found, follow the on-screen instructions. Hint Windows Network Diagnostics is the function to identify problems the network has and present solutions to them.

My xbox 360 says im connected to xbox live checked network setings and it says xb ox live is up and running...however when i try to play need for speed online..it says xbox live not working functionally?...


Turn on the console and navigate to the wireless settings screen. On the Xbox, the menu path is "Settings -> Network Settings -> Advanced -> Wireless -> Settings" On the Xbox 360, the menu path is "System -> Network Settings -> Edit Settings." Set the SSID (network name) on the Xbox to match that of the wireless router. If your wireless router has enabled SSID broadcast, the SSID name should appear pre-selected on the Xbox display. Otherwise, select the "Specify Unlisted Network" option and enter the SSID there. Specify "Infrastructure" as the Network Mode. (Infrastructure is the mode used by wireless routers.) Set the Security Type to match that of the wireless router. If your router uses WPA encryption and the type of adapter connected to the Xbox does not support WPA, you will need to change your router settings to use WEP encryption instead. Note that the standard Microsoft Xbox 360 Wireless Network Adapter supports WPA while the standard Microsoft Xbox Wireless Adapter (MN-740) only supports WEP. Save your settings and verify the network is functional. On the Xbox, the Wireless Status screen displays whether a connection has successfully been made with the wireless router, and the Connect Status screen displays whether a connection has successfully been made through the Internet to Xbox Live. On the Xbox 360, use the "Test Xbox Live Connection" option instead.

How do I setup a wifi connection on a emachines computer?


I must assume you mean an e-machine laptop.
First the wireless adapter must be turned on. I'm not sure if an e-machine has an actual switch but it should have a keystroke combo of the Fn key and a special function key. Once the wireless function is turned on, you should see the icon in the system tray and it should pop up to say that there are wireless networks available (assuming you do have an established wireless network to connect to).
If you are using Vista or Win7, go to the networking and sharing center and set up your connection there--following the prompts under "connect to a network"
var fctb_tool=null; function FCTB_Init_a5eff1341f25432aa8164b9bedcfc7cf(t) { fctb_tool=t; start(fctb_tool); } var fctb_tool=null; function FCTB_Init_54be104342694c46bab44b2a7db38efe(t) { fctb_tool=t; start(fctb_tool); }

How do i activate the wireless function?


Hi,

There is a wireless switch that lets you enable the wireless function. It is mostly located either above the keyboard or on the front edge. Blue lights indicates it is turned on. It looks like a tower with sound waves coming out.

After its turned on go to start > connect to > select your wireless network and click connect. Enter the network key which you can get from the router company, and click connect.

That's it. you should be good to go..
