Which OS do you have? XP, Vista, 7, etc. you must have a wireless adapter in your PC to use wireless and it must be enabled.
if not wireless, then you must have an ethernet slot with cable(CAT5) inserted from internet modem/router. if you have a laptop then you have wireless available. there is a key on keyboard to turn wireless on. you have to have your Network assigned to the wireless internet provider too. if you have cable(cat5) connected to a modem or router/modem connection, and you see an ethernet icon in your lower right corner window(looks like a little computer display), then you have an ethernet connection. if not then either the cable is bad or the modem/router is not producing a connection to pc. thats alot i know but i have little knowledge about your internet connection on your pc. you have not given that to me to use

I keep getting an error message indicating that my wireless device is disabled. It's a HP mini. for work serial CNF0260923. HP MIni 210 - 1076NR


If you get that message, believe it.
You will have to enable it either through the software switch or a little switch that some computer manufacturers place on the computer case.
The first thing you can do is open your network connections and see if you can see the wireless connections. If it says disabled, you might be able to right-click on it and enable it.
You can also look in the control panel to see if the HP wireless assistant can be accessed through there (or possibly through the programs list).

Trying to get wireless


there are some options that might help u: 1. check to see whether wireless adapter is on; 2. if wireless adapter is on, check on drivers whether wireless driver is installed (check in device manager in control panel); 3. check your network connection, check the connection is "disabled". If yes, right-click to enable it. 4. if the above is not your issues, then try this: right-click the wireless network connection to check the available wireless networks, select one of the network, type WEP key and connect it straight away.

When I try to run the Dell Wireless Configuration Utility from the control panel I get the following error message:"The wireless network adapter could not be accessed. This application may have diminished...


Well Sir in this case i will advice you to disable the Dell Wireless Configuration Utility and instead use windows utility for a successful connection.

For disabling dell configuration utility follow these steps:-
1)Open dell Wlan utility , it will have five tabs at the top labeled wireless networks , link status , site monitor , diagnostics and information.
2)Click on wireless networks tab and uncheck the first option which says , "Let this tool manage your wireless network" then click ok or apply at the bottom right-hand side corner of the screen.

To Enable Windows Utility for Windows XP follow these steps:-
1)Open the Control Panel from the Start Menu.
2)From Control Panel click on network and internet connections and then open network connections from there.
3)Right-click Wireless Network Connection and choose Properties.
4)
Click on the Wireless Networks tab and if unchecked , then check the box for Use Windows to configure my wireless network settings. Then click OK.
5)Right-click on Wireless Network Connection, Select View Available Wireless Networks.
6)
This will lists all the available wireless networks in range. Select your network from the list and click Connect.
7)If you are connecting to a secured wireless network, you will be prompted for a Network key. Type the Network key(which is the password for the wireless network) and then click connect.
8)Your network list should now display your connection status. If you are connected and your router is setup for internet access, you are ready to connect to the Internet wireless.
This Link will guide you through the steps:-

I was online when I ''lost'' my internet connection. When I run the cursor over the broadcom symbol, the message says''network 2 radio disabled''


I think you have a wireless enable/disable switch, the rightmost in the row above your keyboard, you must have accidentally pressed it. Press it again to turn the wireless network card on, it should come up and connect in a couple of moments.

Cannot connect MacBook to DIR-615 router


Is your wireless network secured ?
If you are trying to connect to the secured wireless network, make sure that the network that you are typing is correct.
If you are not sure about the network key
then check the network key on the router.
You said that MAC is able to connect to the neighbor's wireless network.
Make sure that the Wireless MAC filter on your router is disabled.

My computer when connected to wireless network keeps showing the message "Windows cannot confugure wireless network." It becomes difficult to get it to work.


You may want to disable the built-in utility of the network adapter and let the wireless zero configuration of Windows take up the task of managing the wireless network.

How to fix intermittent wireless signal with Dell Inspiron 1501


It's the Wireless Zero Configuration service that's doing it. Every 10 minutes or so, the WZC service goes out and tries to look for wireless networks. During this time, it can sometimes disconnect from your wireless network. Usually its brief, merely a few seconds, but long enough to kick you out of games, messaging clients, etc.

There is no easy way to resolve this other than stopping the WZC service after startup and successful connection to your wireless. Unfortunately, if you disable this service altogether, your computer will never connect to any wireless and when looking at the Wireless networks list, it'll mention the WZC service is disabled.

You will also need to re-enable this service everytime you take your PC to places where you'll be connecting to other wireless networks. To stop this service, follow these steps:
  1. Go to Start -> Run -> and type "services.msc" (without quotes)
  2. Scroll to the very bottom of the list
  3. Right click on the Wireless Zero Configuration and choose stop
Once it stops, continue working with your wireless network. If you no longer have disconnection problems every 10 minutes roughly, you've solved your problem. Repeat the above steps after every reboot as the service will be re-enabled after the computer restarts.
