Provided you still know the settings, I mean the either WEP or WPA authentications, then just do this, go to your control panel, then click on network connections, then locate your Wireless Nework adapter and right click on it, select the properties tab, then beside the general tab, you should see Wireless networks, click on it, then you will see Advanced, this is where you can set the connetion type to use,(i.e either Access Point, Infratructure or AD HOC)...and you can also configure the other settings here , for you to be able to access the Wireless network of your choice.
Hope it helps you out.
Goodluck!

If i connect my laptop to the internet via wireless or lan capble,it wont browse.pls what can i do?am using acer with window vista home basic.it stated last weeek.


Hi,
this might be the result of incorrect network interface card (NIC) configuration. This is what you should do. Each time you connect to the net and the network icon comes up in the taskbar, (the low bar at the desktop where you have the battery icon and others) right click on the network icon, select properties. In the properties menu, select
internet protocol version 4 (TCP/IPv4), tick the check box beside it if it's not ticked. After selecting it, click properties below. A second menu pops up. Set the ip address to: obtain an ip address automatically. Set the dns to: obtain dns server automatically. Click ok on the two menus to close them. After some seconds you should be able to access the internet.
Hope this helps

Can't get my lap top to connect wirelessly to my router. Model # WRT54G2. The laptop says it is reaquiring the network address, but nothing happens.


The Network and Sharing Center in Microsoft* Windows Vista* can be used to set up a secure wireless connection to the Internet.

Note: If an Internet connection is not automatically made by the operating system, you may need to contact your access point (AP), broadband wireless router manufacturer, or Internet Service Provider (ISP).

Set Up a Secure Wireless Connection to the Internet


These steps assume that your network adapter; AP or router; and cable, DSL or another type of modem have already been physically connected and configured. They allow you to create a new connection and configure it accordingly.

Follow these steps to set up a secure wireless connection to the Internet.

Note: If a wireless profile does not exist, you will need to create a secure wireless profile before you can set up a wireless connection to the Internet.

1. Access the Network and Sharing Center.

2. Select Set up a connection or network.

3. Click Connect to the Internet.

4. Click Next.

5. Select Wireless. At this point, if the network(s) that are listed say that the network settings do not match the network requirements, as shown in Figure 1, create a secure wireless profile and then follow the steps again.

6. Select a network and click Connect. If you are not connected to the Internet, you may need to contact your AP/router manufacturer or ISP.

Access the Network and Sharing Center


To access the Network and Sharing Center, use one of the following methods:
  • Start » Control Panel » Network and Internet » Network and Sharing Center
  • Start » Network » Network and Sharing Center
  • Right-click the network system tray icon (the icon that displays two computer monitors) » Network and Sharing Center

How do i hook up a wireless internet on a acer notebook,


Hi,

If your computer has wireless adpater then you do not need any drivers to install the wireless. The wireless router should automatically detect the network. First check if your computer is detecting any networks. To do so, click on the wireless icon on your computer taskbar nearby to system time (bottom right hand corner), if you are able to see your wireless network, if yes, select it and click connect, once connected, open IE and try to access web page. If in case you are not able to view any web page and connection remains active, I suggest you try to connect in "Safemode with Networking", to do so, restart the computer and as soon as it restarts keep on tapping F8 key, now select "Safemode with Networking" from the Advance boot menu. Try to connect to internet. If you are able to connect to Internet then the issue is with the firewall on you computer, contact the firewall manufacture for settings. If you are still unable to connect to Internet, then the Internet setting are not correct, you may need to contact the ISP.

Thanks and regards,
Jitha

My wireless is on but everytime i try to go to the internet it doesnt go through and it says my ip address has been changed


What is the Operating system on the laptop ?
If it is XP then in the bottom right hand corner you will find Wireless network connection ( looks like 1 computer monitor). Use that icon to connect to the wireless network.
If it is windows Vista, then in the bottom right hand corner you will find 2 computer monitor icon. Use that icon to connect to the wireless network.
If it is Windows 98/ME/2000 then use the adapter utility to connect to the wireless network.
For MAC you will see the AIRPORT icon at the top.

Check the wireless settings of the router first . Make sure that yopu have all the wireless settings of the router. If you are not sure about the settings, then open the router set up and check the settings.

My wireless wont connect to home, and it shows a big red ''X'' whenever i try. It says that the setting are different, I changed NOTHING and it worked last week.


I'll assume you're using Windows Wireless:

Right click on the taskbar icon + view available wireless networks + change order of preferred networks + delete you network from the list + add network + manually enter the SSID and the security key + ok and exit.

Post your results back here...
