How Do I Turn On My Wireless Capabilities


Your computer should automatically detect the presence of a wireless signal in your environment. If it does not, go into services.msc and make sure that the wireless service is turned on.

How to connect to always automatically connect to your SSID


Ever turn on your computer and try to connect to the internet? Ever see all the many SSIDs in your neighborhood listed in your wireless radar or your "Windows Wireless Connection". Then you'd scroll down to double click on your SSID so that you can connect to the internet. Imagine doing this everytime you have to connect to the internet. Wouldn't that be annoying?

The Objective
The objective of this Tip/How-To is to have you turn on your computer and connect to the internet automatically via your SSID (Wireless Network Name). Hence, you wouldn't need to manually find your SSID everytime you need to connect to the internet.

Pre-requisites or Must haves for this Tip to work
  1. A computer with a wireless adapter
  2. A wireless router
  3. An active internet service
  4. This tip is designed for Windows XP. I will post one up for Windows Vista and Windows 7.
  5. This tip is designed to work with Wireless Networks (SSID) that do not have any passwords or encryption.

Active Tip Dictionary (throughout this TIP)
SSID
is the technical term for your broadcasted network name. This is basically what you will see listed in your WIRELESS NETWORK CONNECTIONS manager.


To make your computer connect automatically to the internet via your SSID, we will need to manually tell your computer to connect to your SSID and then we will need to save this setting so that your computer will automatically connect to your SSID everytime you turn on your computer.

Let's Begin.
Start your computer by turning it on.

Click on your Start Button.

Move your mouse over to Control Panel and then left click on it.

Double click on the Network Connections icon.

Double click on Wireless Connection. Now in the picture above you see Wireless Connection 3 but on your screen you should see Wireless Connection.

Now click on Properties.

Click on the Wireless Networks Tab.

Now scroll up and down under Preferred networks until you find your Wireless Network Name (SSID). For me, it's called linksys therefore I will select linksys.

Now click on Properties.

Now click on the Connection tab.

Under Automatic connection, click to check "Connect when this network is in range". This will tell your computer to connect automatically to your Wireless Network Name (SSID).

Click OK to save this setting.

Click OK again to get out of the Properties window.

Click OK again to get out of the Wireless Connections window.

Then click Close to close out of the Wireless Connections window.

And there you have it, you have setup to automatically connect to your Wireless Network (SSID) everytime you turn on your computer.

Now restart your computer and give it a few seconds, and voila, you are automatically connecting to your Wireless Network (SSID). Now you can surf the internet. You can set this on all your computers at home that have a wireless card.

Remember to give me a good rating and vote for me. If you require further tips and tricks, feel free to contact me through the contact box. I will post up your tip.

Is there a wireless switch on my Gateway Desktop, and if so, where?


If your Gateway desktop has wireless it is probably automatically on without any need to turn it on. To turn it off you can disable the wireless network under the Network section of control panel....just "disable" the wireless network connection.

How to turn on the wireless capability by using a combination of function keys. Have re-installed the driver and turned the switch to on position but windows could not detect.


Make sure Windows is set to manage your wireless. Control Panel --> Administrative Tools --> Services
Make sure "Wireless Zero Configuration" is started, and is set to Automatically Start.
Good luck.

Laptop won't connect to wireless


Hello :-)
Try going into device manager, and uninstalling your wireless network adapter.
Reboot your PC. It will automatically reinstall your wireless network card.
Now try your wireless connection. This often solves random wireless issues.
Good luck!

go to "Wireless Zero Configuration" and enable automatic startup
, if the service is stopped, start it.
hit the apply button to save your settings.

Wireless mouse


With USB wireless mice, you plug in the USB wireless adapter, and turn on the mouse. Windows XP should automatically install the software, if not, install the software on the disk that the mouse came with (if there is one). If there isn't a disk, Windows XP will most likely install the drivers automatically. Press the connect button on both the mouse, and the USB adapter, and it should all work. Good Luck
