    Thanks! This all is over my head, but the detailed instructions really helped. The device manager says that the WLAN driver is working properly so I guess that the internal network adaptor is NOT secured which would explain why hitting the computer worked once. Thanks again!!! Btw, I turned on my computer this morning and the wireless is working... This was all a mystery to me, but not anymore. THANK YOU FOR YOUR HELP!

The internal network adaptor may be fragile, and not secured properly. However, I would not suggest you try to secure it as it may break.

So, just make sure your wireless LAN device driver is properly installed. TO check, right click my computer, properties, then "hardware" tab, then device manager. There, check for your driver under "Network Adaptors" and see if it is properly installed.

If it is not, you can re-install it from the company's support& download site.

If it is installed, go to a more experienced techician to securely fasten the internal network adaptor in place.

JBL BP600.1 protection


Disconnect all speaker connections and rca cables. Leave power, ground and remote wires intact. Try turning on again. If you still have a protection light your amp is faulty. Hopefully you have warranty. Using an ohm meter to the sub will confirm whether its bad or not. Invest in a cheap test set of 6.5" speakers.
.A thumbs up would be greatly appreciated if this answer is helpful to you.

I recently got the Gateway NV52L15U Laptop and the Wi-Fi has been working fine. Yesterday when I got on the computer it would not let me connect saying I need to "Turn on wireless capability." When I go to...


Okay, i finally have found a solution to this problem, it may sound crazy but hear me out and give it a try. Turn the computer off and turn it back on(admittedly i stumbled upon this trying to enter the bios settings). Then proceed to hold down the function key and press all the buttons on the top line of the keyboard (you probably only need to press the wireless button but hit all to be sure). the computer will idle and take a little longer to come on but when it does the wireless should be working fine again. Also try pressing them all without holding the function key to ensure.

I have a D-link DSL-2750U router worked fine till yesterday, but now its power led keeps on giving a red light it should give green a second or two later but it keeps givings


Reset router. There are two resets. A simple push reboots and holding it in clears all custom settings. Try the first.

This is a quick fix and usually does it. Test with network cable and work your way backwards to modem if you still have problems.

My Dell desktop using Windows XP can't connect to my Belkin 5720 router but my laptop still works?


This sounds like a hardware failure, but just in case go to your computer Control Panel-Network Connections(Network and Sharing Center for Vista and above), and check your Network adapter settings. If your Network card is not showing, you may have a driver issue, or a bad NIC (Network Interface Card). It shouldn't matter that your router says" wireless hardware not detected", because you are hardwired from the computer to the router. I would check to see if you may have turned off, or blocked Ethernet connections on your router, I would then change my Cat5 (Ethernet) cable, and finally open the desktop and change out the NIC (Network Interface Card).

Wii console not working correctly


When you connect to the internet wirelessly and Wii Connect24 your Wii will stay connected and recieve messages, updates, etc. That is why the disk area stays blue and the amber light stays on. Sometimes this will create a power failure. Just unplug your Wii from the wall and let it rest for a few minutes and plug it back in. The problem should be solved.
