Re: my laptop cant find the connection

Do you have an wireless icon?

Are you able to view the available wireless networks? If you are, then highlight it (left click once), and click "connect".

If your router is public, without a key or password, if all things are set correctly, you should be connected.

If you still cannot connect, compare your wireless settings to another computer that is connected to the network.

If you still have configurations issues, seek more knowledgeable help locally.
Hope this helps!

My laptop wont connect to my wireless router, but my desktop which is directly connect will?

You wirless switch has to be turned on for that to work. If that is not the issue then sometimes it it best to plug it in to the router and set it up that way. the computer already recognizes the computer and it finds it easier to set up the wirless.

If you want to make it real easy to manage your computers and the internet. Download a network manage ment program. I will help you connect you computers to the internet and much more. Network Magic Pro or Network Magic Essentials $30-$50.

I hope i have given you information that has helped you.
Thank you for the chance to help as well...

The red line through the icon indicates that that network adapter is disabled in the device manager. (You can enable it by right clicking My computer, choose Manage>device manager. But the realtek is used for your ethernet cable connection. The 1394 connections are network adapters used for network connections to printers, etc. probably left over from your work setting, and can be disabled for the moment.
You don't mention what OS you're using, but I'll guess XP, and provide another link for vista just in case....
In any event, it's going to be necessary for you to reconfigure your network connection to the router/gateway you're using at home to connect to your ISP. Here's a general wireless networking troubleshooter, in the event that you've already covered the basics. And here and here are articles/links that will give you more advanced guidance. (Also here.)
But here and here are links to basics: to help you set up and maintain a network in xp, and here's an alternative for vista.
Another excellent resource to help you answer questions and troubleshoot the connection is this site, which has specifics that deal with many common ISPs.
In the end, you may find the easiest thing to do is start at the beginning by setting up a new home network and working through each step to establish a new connection.

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.

Wirless network - laptop

See what ip,gateway and DNS its getting from the access point.If its getting the right ips then your network should work. If it is not getting the right ips then there must be some problem in the DHCP configuration of the access point

The last thing you want to do is get rid of the password - operating an unsecured WiFi network can be very hazardous to your privacy & finances! You need to set the WEP password in the PC's. If you install the 3Com router software and use that to set things up, it will guide you through doing the job.

Also, it's better to use WPA encryption rather than WEP which is now regarded as insecure and little better than nothing at all. If you can get it working OK on WEP, it'd be easy enough to change it to WPA in the router & then change the setup on the PC's.

Unless you live in the back of beyond, this really is necessary I'm afraid :{
