I do not know my wireless pc


b> If your computer will not connect to a wireless Internet signal, one of the first things to check is whether your computer's wireless switch is turned on. Many laptop computers have a switch located on the exterior of the computer that controls its ability to connect to wireless networks. This switch can be accidentally turned off, preventing users from connecting to the Internet.

Determine if your computer's wireless connectivity has been disabled by viewing the network icon in the lower toolbar on your computer's desktop. When there is a disruption in your computer's Internet connection, the icon will have a red X through it. For further information, go to the computer's Network and Sharing Center where you can troubleshoot connectivity issues and view available wireless networks. If the computer isn't recognizing any wireless connections (and you're sure that there are wireless signals in your area), the likely problem is that the wireless switch is turned off. Locate the wireless switch on your computer. It may be located on either side of the laptop or along the back or front. If you aren't sure whether your computer has a wireless switch, check the user guide that came with the unit. Determine whether the switch is currently in the "On" or "Off" position. The switch will be clearly labeled. Push the switch in the direction of the "On" position to ensure that it is turned on. If the switch was already turned on, see if there is a keyboard combination that will activate your laptop's wireless capability. The key combination for your laptop will depend on your computer's manufacturer, but will generally involve a combination of the Function, Control or Alt and the F1 to F12 keys. Check your user manual for your computer's key combination. Troubleshoot problems finding wireless networks

Cannot connect to internet. status is connected but error says no internet access


Dear Friend,

First, check your wireless connection switch or combination of Function key (Fn) + one of the F's key on top of the keyboard to turn the wireless on. Check the wireless light, if is on it means that your laptop wireless card works. If not, it needs to get check by a PC technician.

Second, if you are using wireless network be sure that you are connecting correctly by using the right network and the right password. Also check for encryption configuration such as WEP or WPA that match on both laptop and wireless switch.

Third, connect your laptop directly with your modem or internet provider box. If you are not getting internet, that's probably the issue and you need to contact them to solve connectivity to the NET.

Good Luck!!!

Wireless connectiion keep on switching to a not


You need to check first if the wireless switch is turn on.If it is on, check the function key for the wireless. Some computers have function key. Sometimes it is combination of fn and f5. Press those keys at the same time and you should see a pop up window and check if the current status is on. If it is on, uninstall/reinstall the wireless driver in device manager. and restart your computer. If this didn't work. You need to do re installation of your operating system.

Cant connect to 2wire dsl cant see network wirelessnot switched ?


firstly does it have a wireless indicator somewhere on the laptop?

most of the indicators located next to bluetooth switch and other indicates. once you identify the indicated then you can solve this problem.

check you wireless network settings. if not the device is disabled or drivers not installed.

if your device is ok, then you check the software for the wireless network. most computers do not indicate that the wireless device is working, try to install a wireless application driver for your laptop and try connecting it a wireless device to see if there is any connectivity.

thank you

First make sure the wireless card driver in the computer is installed and the wireless is enabled and working.
To connect to your wireless router, it needs the router’s wireless settings configured and also needs the wireless cards in all the laptops and or computers to be configured with the router’s wireless settings. Then the laptops and desktop computers can communicate with your wireless router.

To set-up and secure the wireless router from unauthorized access, follow these steps: -
1. Connect the wireless router to your computer with a LAN cable.
2. Start your browser and enter the router's configuration URL IP address.
3. Enter the router setup, login and password
4. Change the admin password
5. Go to the wireless settings and change the default SSID and turn off SSID broadcast.
6. Setup encryption key the strongest is WPA2 (if not then WPA).
7. For further security measures - turn on MAC address filtering and enter the MAC address of the wireless cards on the computer/s you want to connect to this wireless router.
8. Record the settings you have made and keep it in a safe place and Save the settings.
9. Configure the wireless cards on the computer/s with the SSID and encryption settings of the router.
10. Remove the LAN cable between the router and the computer then the computers should be able to connect to the router wirelessly.
To access the Internet you need to connect the DSL or cable modem to the WAN (Internet) port on the wireless router.

Look for a switch that turns on the wireless device. Also check in the connection manager if the device is active and the wireless adapter is within range.

TOSHIBA EQUIUM WIRELESS PROBLEM


You might deleted your driver to wireless connection or you perhaps upgraded Service Pack to higher version. If your wireless connection will work on lower SP then that device won't work or vice versa.
Another thing, try to check connections. Click menu and look for connections and try to enable wireless connections.

Thanks
