It either means you have limited or no connectivity, in which case you should reset the router/wireless access point you are connected to, by powering it off and then powering it back on after 1 minute. Otherwise it simply means the wireless network you are connected to, or can see on the wireless network list, is unencrypted and any data you send over that network can in fact be viewed by someone else provided that they have the tools for it.

Yellow sheild icon by wireless connection


No wireless connection or a connectivity problem with it. May be user name password mismatch? Add your wireless modem id and password again in the wireless settings in the general settings section. If your wireless modem id is in there delete or forget this net work. Search and add again.

Trying to connect to my wireless router belkin n150 with my laptop compaq presario 2500 have a yellow triangle saying limited or no connectivity


Limited connectivity
If you get a 'Limited connectivity" on you wireless connection on your laptop, it means that the wireless card on your laptop probably did not get an IP address from the wireless router.
To fix this problem, right click on the wireless icon on the Task bar and then click Repair.
This will force the wireless router to issue a IP address to the wireless card on the laptop.

No when it is blue it means you have internet,when it is yellow or amber there is no signal.Are you sure that your router in its settings that the wireless check box is enabled ? Can you connect with cable for certain.Probably you need to check the setting like I posted here.

When i go to update my ipod, it says, network connection timed out, please make sure network connection is correct and active. how do i do that so i can update my ipod?


Go to System Preferences from the Apple icon menu (top left) under the Internet & Wireless section there is a Network icon (glass ball looking thing) click on that. green dot next to ethernet (or wireless whatever one you use) means you are connected. yellow dot means ready but not connected. red dot means not connected.
If you have a red dot next to the connection that you use, check your router or modem. You might have to call you ISP if the problems keep happening.

I do not see any wireless icon in the network connection...i dont know what to do...please help me....


First go to the control panel > device manager (In XP the manager is in the System folder). Scroll down to network adapters, open it and look at the adapters listed....there should be two, one should be an ethernet card and the other a wireless or WLAN card. Look to see if there are yellow icons by their names. This usualy indicates a problem with either the card or the drivers running them. If they do not have yellow trouble symbols by them, then make sure the wireless switch is turned on either by switch on the outside of the laptop or by an Fn key combination. In the case of your laptop, the switches were optional, but just in case look on the front edge of your laptop, by the audio jacks on the left side should be your wlan switch, make sure it is in the "on" position. If there are yellow icons by the wireless, try right clicking on the adapter and uninstalling it. Then reboot, make sure you are connected to the internet via ethernet cable, you will want to let windows search windows update for a new driver when it reinstalls the device upon rebooting. See if that takes care of the problem. Also, if you have changed the way your system boots like say "selective startup" through the msconfig command, that may need to be temp. changed until this is cleared up, then you can go back to it.

Cant connect wireless I have two be hardwire in order to access the internet. my laptop has the ability but i think some of my drivers are not installed. and or utilities?


To verify if there is no driver installed in your wireless adapter you can go to the device manager and look for a question mark, if there is a question mark that means that there are drivers that are not installed in your computer-possible is your wireless driver. You can follow the link below to download and install the driver for your wireless. If there's no yellow question mark visible in your device manager that means that all drivers are installed properly including your wireless driver. If you don't have a utility for your wireless adapter you may have to use the wireless zero configuration of XP.

click Start > Run > type services.msc then look for the Wireless Zero Configuration. Double click it and on the pop-up window set it to automatic and click on start button then press ok. A wireless icon on the lower right corner of your screen should appear if you turn on your wireless adapter. Usually a laptop uses a key combination to turn on wireless adapter.

Fn + F2 etc. etc. You can look for a button that has the wireless symbol and if you see that just press the Fn button following the button for the button that has the wireless signal.

Green and yellow lights flashes where the charging icon apears


There are a few LED lights on all laptops if that's what you mean, each usually have a symbol to indicate their meaning, the meanings can vary according to colour as well. For example mine has a picture of satellite dish (wi fi) which flashes orange as it communicates with my wireless router, there's a battery which is green when plugged in and orange when using battery. I have a bluetooth icon as well. There should also be one for the computer being on.

You can't as far as I know do much about them. Aside from sticking bluetac over them :-)
