I had the same problem with my card, but i sorted it out. What i done is i made sure i had all the latest drivers for my pc. The problem was that my laptop disconnected my wireless card and it would not recognise it. Try re-installing the wireless card and try connecting it again. If you cant connect to the internet to get the drivers, if you have a DSL cable you can use that to get the latest drivers.Visit Windows Update and get the latest updates for that. My problem was that it disconnected my card and when it done that, the icon disappeared from my task bar but i re-installed the drivers for the card. Go to a search engine like Google (Recommended) and put in the name and model of your wireless card and get the drivers for that.

Thats all i have for you!

Hope i helped =)

Wireless is connected but internet wont detect connection


For wireless connections:

1. Hold the Windows key and press the R key, type services.msc and press Enter or click OK. This should open a new window - services local.
2. Look for Wireless Zero Configuration on the list in the right pane. The list is alphabetical, so you should be able to locate it maybe third from the bottom.
3. Double-click it to open it.
4. Click on the STOP button to stop it (lower left). If it is not highlighted or is grayed out, then the service is stopped. (it should also say that the SERVICE STATUS is stopped).
5. Look for STARTUP TYPE drop-down menu. Change it from AUTOMATIC to DISABLED. then click on APPLY (lower right).
6. Then just change it right back from disabled to automatic and click on apply again.
7. Click on START button (right beside the STOP button) on the same window to start the service.

--- We are essentially restarting the windows wireless service. What we did just turned it off and on again ---

8. Close the services local window.
9. Go to Start and then Control Panel. Network Connections. If you don't see Wireless Network Connections or Local Area Connection after opening Network Connections, kindly look for Network Connections again (it maybe on the lower right).

--- We need to be on the page where you have the wireless network connections icon. ---

11. Right-click on the icon for Wireless Network Connections then left-click on Properties.
12. You should have several tabs. Click on Wireless Network Connections tab (near the top of the window).
13. Make sure you have a checkmark on where it says, "Use windows to configure your wireless connections..." or something like that.

--- Before going into the next step. Kindly make sure first that you have the following CORRECT information: (1) your own SSID; (2) Network key (if you have one) - WEP or WPA or whichever encryption you are using. If you don't know these information, kindly secure these information first or better yet, try calling your router manufacturer to help you out on this ---

14. Then on the list that shows on the same window, remove everything on the list. That list shows all the wireless networks that you have been connected to before.

--- Don't worry about deleting it. The next time that you connect to the wireless network, it will be automatically added back into this list ---

15. Once everything is removed. Kindly close the window.
16. Go back to where you have the Wireless Network Connections icon again.
17. Right-click again the icon and left-click on View Wireless Network Connections.
18. If your wireless router is broadcasting your SSID, then you should be able to see it on the list of wireless network(s) that will appear on the screen.
19. Select your SSID and hit Connect.
20. It should be asking for your network key. Type it in. In might ask you to confirm the network key. Just type it in again.
21. It will attempt to connect it. And you will get a notification that you are connected.
22. Once you are connected, go back to the window where you have the Wireless Network Connections icon we were working on before.
23. That icon should say that it is connected.
24. Double-click it. It should open a new window.
25. You should have a General tab and a Support tab.
26. General tab should say it is connected.
27. Click on the Support tab.
28. Now confirm if your IP Address says 192.168.x.x. where x can represent any number. Example: 192.168.0.100
29. If you have these confirmed. Kindly try to see if you can now get into the internet or into your network.
30. Enjoy!

let me know if this don;t work for you Blankzero

Laptop wireless card problem. I bought a used computer. I've never had a laptop with a wireless card. It worked fine. Two lights blinked on the card. All of the sudden i couldn't get the internet....


If you do not have a wireless router which is connected to your Internet servce provider and now your laptop does not connect to the Internet then, you could have connected to your neighbour's Internet connection.
The reason why you cannot now get Internet access is, this neighbour has discovered unauthorized access to their unprotected wireless connection and has taken security steps to prevent further unauthorized access.

If you have a wireless router and it is connected to the DSLor cable modem then - To connect to your wireless router, the router needsits wireless settings to be configured with the SSID, encryption key etc., alsothe wireless cards in all the laptops/computers needs to be configured withthese router's wireless settings. Then the laptops/desktop computers cancommunicate with your wireless router and access the Internet via the DSL or cable modem.

I just recently got wireless internet. It was


Hard to say what the issue is based on the information you provided.. There are actually a lot of reasons you might have lost the connection.
I'd start by verifying that you're connected to the wireless network that you set up. Did you name it? Open your network properties and see what the icon for the wireless adapter tells you:
- Are you connected? - Are you connected to the proper network? - Is your network card "disabled" for some reason? Some laptops have a disable button that overrides the card so the wireless radio can be shut off quickly and easily. Make sure it's not been tripped. Usually laptops have an LED to indicate if the wireless radio is running.. usually blue.
note1: be sure to check the "order of preferred networks" and from that screen delete all wireless networks you won't connect to somewhat regularly and/or ones you've connected to accidentally in the past. Make sure that your home network is tops in the list.
note2: if you did not create your own name for your wireless network and are still running the default name, it's definitely smart to change that. Your laptop can easily get confused with other networks in the neighborhood that have the same name.
Hope that helps.

WIRELESS CONNECTION


Go to the Device Manager and check Wireless Network Adapter properties. Is the Wireless adapter installed, working properly and enabled? If not then reinstall the wireless LAN driver.

If it is OK then go to the Control Panel and click on Network Connections and right click on the wireless connection anf then click on Repair. This will make the wireless router issue a new IP address to the wireless LAN card and you whould now get access to the Internet & your network.
If this doesn't work power down your wireless router wait 1/2 minute, power up and boot up your laptop after all the normal LEDs on the wireless are on.

Let me know if you still have problems plus all error messages.

My wifi icon has disappered on my toolbar and wont connect. was okay then i left it and internet connection is gone.


Hi there

It's important to see if you still have a wireless connection... start finding out in a couple of ways.

Go into Control Panel, Network connections, you should see the Wireless Connection listed.
Then check the status, it may be disabled. If so, right click it and select "Enable".

Also check if the wireless indicators on the laptop show it's on. There may be a switch on the laptop which turns on the wireless card.

Lastly, check if there's a problem with the wireless card:
In Control Panel, select Performance and Maintenance, then System. Select the "Hardware" tab, then open Device Manager. If there's a problem with the wireless card there will be an exclamation mark by it. If so you may need to reinstall the wireless card.

If you want more help please tell me the make and model of the laptop.

Wireless internet


1. Go into the Network Connections (Start->Control Panel, Network Connections)
2. Locate your Wireless Adapter and make a RIGHT click on the icon.
3. Click on "View Wireless Networks"

If that does not work, it may mean that your wireless adapter is using a customized software to manage wireless networks. This is the case for my Intel Wireless adapter. In this case, look in Start->All programs for a program from your wireless adapter or laptop manufacturer (if the card is embeded). If you tell me the exact name of your wireless adapter, I should be able to help you a little further.

Compaq Laptop Network Adapter


Hi,
Just to make sure im understanding the situation properly - you have a laptop and connect to the internet through a wireless network right? And then when you go to open up internet explorer or whatever program you use it basically says you're not connected to the internet.

It does sound like your wireless card has gone bad but when you say that it still has the icon down the bottom of the screen telling you that you're connected to the network, it sounds like it could be something else. It could be a range of things from there though, there are some viruses that corrupt something called the LSP and when that is broken it has the same symptoms as you described. Also it could just be a setting in your anti-virus. I know that Kaspersky Internet Security suite has a problem with its anti-hacker function that blocks internet from working like that.

Try disabling all of your anti-virus / firewall programs and then accessing the internet. If that works then its only a small problem. If it doesnt work and the icon is still there saying you are connected to the wireless then there is a small program to try running called LSP Fix, available at:

http://cexx.org/lspfix.htm

Other than that i'm out of ideas. Changing the wireless network card in a laptop does sound challenging though.

Hope my mini-essay helps,
Daniel

Wireless "Gateway"


Well, a gateway is a machine or router or device that your basically give you access to another network in this case the internet. In short a gateway connects you to another network. for example: IP Address 192.168.0.10 Subnet: 255.255.255.0 GATEWAY: 192.168.0.1 If this happens on any and all wireless network then it could be that your card is configured with a static address or your network card is faulty. What are the chances that all the gateways are not working. Go to Network Connections in Control Panel. Right Click on the Wireless Connection then go to properties. Select TCP/IP in the middle, you might need to scroll down. Click on properties. Make sure that both Obtain Automatically boxes are checked. Press ok then. Then close the wireless Properties. Try again! If it was already set to obtain automatically, You card might be bad or you winsock might be corrupted. Try repairing the winsock. If its Xp with Service pack 2 you are using then download install and run this utility http://files3.majorgeeks.com/files/9bf8d7d48a8543f9d4e60aa9da5e9ef9/internet/xptcprep.exe If that doesn't remedy the problem, it could be a faulty wireless adapter!

Compaq presario 2500 notebook won't boot OK, here's the background with this computer. This laptop has been "shelfed" for about a year now, but the other day I decided it would be handy to fix. I'm a poor college student so I don't have to blow sending this to a shop somewhere, and I'd like to get it working again. The original problem was that it wouldn't (usually!) boot at all - it seemed to be completely dead. I would plug it into it's a/c adapter and press the power button, but NOTHING would happen. Occassionally, like once every ten minutes or so, an orange led light in the front would flash a few times. (the led with the thunderbolt symbol, I think it's the "battery charging" led) What was strange though was that sometimes, for reasons beyond me, when this orange led flashed and I pressed the power button, it would SOMETIMES boot up into windows and run perfectly. But this was only like once every 30 mins or so - I had to fiddle with it for half an hour to get it to boot. The trick where you remove all power sources and hold down the power button then tried to reboot worked a few times, but then suddenly quit working and the computer wouldn't boot at all - not even after fiddling with it for half an hour. I was pretty sick of this so I took it apart and wiped some dust off the heat sink. Everything looked OK so I put it back together. Now, I have a new problem. When I press the power button a bunch of blue leds light up and the fan kicks on, (whereas before everything but one orange led was completely dead) but there's no display and nothing boots. Anybody have any idea whats wrong? (on a side note the battery is dead, and i've tried everything I've with with the battery in and out) I'm looking at the same problem with a friends machine, boots up when it wants too, restaerts after 5-15mins and i noticed at that stage all 3 fans are going nuts and there some serious heat pumping out of the bugger. It's def not software as i've reinstalled, but i only get 1/2 way through it before the pieceof **** shuts down. When you goto restart it has no screen, no hdd activity, just fans fireup and 3 blue lights next to the power button, i told be friend that the only way i could fix this is with a hammer and sticky tape...he...he.
