Question about Gateway M-6750 Notebook

1 Answer

I can't connect to the internet

I have a Gateway M-6750 and I can't connect to the internet. I used to be able to turn on the internal antenna by pressing the antenna function key but it doesn't do anything anymore. The external wireless switch is on and the router seems to be working fine, atleast my pc that's line connected to the router is online.

I'm assuming you run some sort of windows...

go to your control Panel

For Vista/XP, click on the windows/start button (lower left hand corner of your screen)

Click on Control Panel, and then click on your networking

If your internal wireless modem is disabled, the internet will not work

If it is disabled, then right click and click on enable.

If it is enabled already, you can click on troubleshoot

An internal wireless card lets you access the Internet and a home or corporate computer network without the hassle of using an Ethernet or other type of network connection.

The wireless card grabs the communication signal flowing throughout the air and processes the signal through your Gateway PC's Windows operating system so you can access websites, email and related Internet-based services.

But like other devices in your computer, you must turn on the internal wireless card in your Gateway PC before using it.

Turn on your computer, if it is off.

Press and hold the "Fn" key on your computer's keyboard.
Press the "F2" key in the upper row of keys on your keyboard.

The wireless Internet card's connection utility will start searching for a wireless signal.
Connecting to a Signal

Click "Start," "Connect To."
If your Gateway PC is running Windows 7, click on the Windows symbol on the taskbar. Click "Control Panel," "Network and Internet," "View network status and tasks."

Click on the wireless connection you want to connect to.

If using Windows 7, click on "Connect to a network," then click on the wireless connection you want to connect to.

Click "Connect." Enter the wireless connection's network password (SSID), if prompted. Click "Next."

Click "Connect Anyway," if prompted with a message about the connection not being secure.

Click "Close." Open your Gateway PC's Internet browser or email application to start using the Internet connection.

Click start control panel network connections this may vary depending on your operating system look for local area connection if you see a red x or a yellow exclamation or question mark!?
you will need to update or install the driver or it could be firewalled.

Make sure your antivirus program is not blocking the internet connection.

If you are trying to connect through a modem/router you it should have come with a disk then
you might have to connect the usb lead to your modem to get a connection then

Click start control panel administration tools computer management device manager scroll to network adapters should see a yellow question ? exclamationmark! or a red Xright click install drivers.

The driver might be on the disc supplied by your ISP internet service provider
or the motherboard disc

When I use the Brothers GX-6750 Typewriter its printing with BOLD Letters and Underline I can I correct this problem??


Above the top row of keys are words that indicate the code or alt function of these keys. By using the alt or code key and this key you should be able to turn on or off these functions.

Goto BROTHER.com, click on support, poke around and you will find a manual.

Wiil not connect to wireless, it says to turn the internet switch on, but the switch is already on


Sometimes the physical switch is not enough to turn your wireless on you need to use a Function key. FN+F5 is the Function key to turn your wireless.

Hope this information will be helpful. Thank you for using FIxya.

I am unable to pickup internet wirelessly with my computer.


Hi Fred!
I have checked the specification of your laptop here and found that your laptop is Wi-Fi capable and wi-fi drivers are available and can be downloaded and installed here. (if required)
Most Gateway notebooks have a designated multi-function button or function key to turn your wireless on and off. There should be a tiny slide switch or button with a small antenna symbol. There should also be a light with the same symbol to show when it is on and from the keyboard Press Fn+F2 to enable wireless.

Let me know if any further clarification/ assistance is required.

Good Luck!
Dont forget to appreciate the solution if I could have been of any help!

My Gateway NV78 looses the wirweless signal if the computer is more than 10 feet from the router. Three other computers can pick up the signal anywhere in the house. Any ideas?


Well the internal antennas in net books are not that universally functional,depending on strength of signal etc ,your brand of pc is not that hot either,I have known a netbook to function differently even frome different points in the same room.
one thing you can do is take your pc apart and solder in a reverse polarity sma connector ,then use a piece of the smallest co-ax you can find(rg 174) or try a military -spec rg 174 co-ax.The only problem then is soldering it to the internal co-ax linking your wi-fi card to the internal intenna,you might even find just cutting this very thin co-ax gives you a better pattern but if you do solder it in you can then link an external omni-directional antenna to your pc and this migh give you a connection just to the strongest signal and not sniff out irrelevant connections you cant connect to anyway---good luck!

No power to my gateway m-6750 lap top. Have been


Hello,


First use the following steps:

1 Disconnect the battery and the charger
2 Let it sit for 1-2 minutes.
3 Press and hold down the power button for 30 seconds.
4 Connect the charger (don't connect the battery yet) and try to start by pressing the power button.


If everything remain same, check the charger with a multimeter and match the voltage output with its specs.

If the charger is good, then there can be some problem with the DC jack (where you connect the charger).


Thanks

Can't find the wireless antenna on my msi u100 series laptop


Not really sure what you are expecting. The wireless antenna is within the computer--you won't see it.
What you will need to do is to turn the wireless networking on. This is done in some computers with a small switch on the case (in this case, there is usually a light that comes on when you turn the switch on). In other cases, you will have to use the Fn key plus one of the special function keys at the top of the unit (has a picture representing a wireless connection on it--possibly something like an antenna).
If this fails, go into your network connections and see if the wireless connection is actually turned on. If you have Vista, this is sorta easy as you click on "connect to" and then choose "wireless network"

Some laptops have a small switch on the body of the laptop that turns on/off the wireless connection, check for that first. Otherwise, it can be disabled with the function keys on the keyboard. Press and hold the 'fn' key and then press the key in the top row that has the little antenna icon, that should re-enable it.

Wireless internet for desktop.


Not sure what type of laptop you have, but look at the function keys on your keyboard (F1, F2, F3). Normally one of those will have an Antennae looking icon, if so then press your fn key and that key and it should turn it on.
