I cannot connect my Dell XPS M140 laptop to WiFi since we got a new router.

Fn/F2 probably turns the wifi on/off but your problem is you need to connect to the new device, and enter the new password. In the tray (notification) area, click the Network or wifi icon, find the new device (You may have to click Connect first.), connect to it and enter the password when prompted.

Tablet doesn't pick up WiFi in other rooms. What can be done about that?

Move tour wifi router to a different location, upgrade your router to one with better range or purchase a wifi extender. Most routers have a rang of about 100ft. Better ones can reach as much as 3 to 400 feet.

My wii will not pick up my WiFi hotspot

I had the same problem with my wii & wifi router combination. I had to upgrade to a more modern router that had WPA-2 encryption... Try a friend's wifi router before you part with $.

TP-Link TL-WR642G recovery after failure upgrade to latest firmware

may find this page helpful. ash Its not for the TP-Link router but the same principle could be applied to you with the correct firmware. Its worked for me on more than a few occasions. Providing you can ping the router via a lan cable then the chances of recovering it are very high.

I tried a firmware upgrade to resolve an issue with the router dropping WiFi connections but now it doesn't work even after a factory reset

Wrong firmware. Never upgrade firmware unless recomended by the mfgr or the unit itself can upgrade automatically like most newer Netgear models.

Buy a new router, they are very inexpensive.

I have a compaq laptop which i've had for a year or so. My laptop connects fine with every other internet broadband but not our new home one, and every other laptop in the house connects to this internet...

Compaq Presario V6000T now retired at HP (zero support)
ok its old. 12 long years old now!@!!
first learn that old laptops do not have modern wifi chips.
like other PCs have, a fact.
the answer is Encryption modes.
WEP , WPA or WPA2.
in my home we have WPA2 ONLY AT THE ROUTER.
for security reasons and no old laptop works with WPA2
then learn other homes running old gear, routers.
have WEP on only
and most new PC have that disabled, or gone now.
WEP is net secure now at all so is gone.

now lets answer you in more basic forum
why not learn to setup the PC and your router the correct way.
if your PC only does WEP/WPA (look does it?)
in the router, turn that on. if using wep turn it on, and know that you homes router can be hacked easy.
if you have WPA, turn that on, and use only that if the PC can not use WPA2. use WPA for sure, at LEAST.
turn off TKIP (use AES mode) too,.

im reading your PC spec now.
what wifi?
it has 802.11b/g
in most cases we must find out what wifi chip is there.
and what OS you run, you never said windows what?
then get the newest driver for that wifi chip.
some are not available.
finding the chip true name is not easy.
I can but I have powerful scanners.
the cure is , use the unsafe protocol
or upgrade the driver,
or buy wifi dongle USB (new) and use it. easy and cheap.
use WPA2 only. if wise.

next time post what OS you have
nobody can match working drivers lacking that key fact
is this stinking XP the DEAD OS? or vista? it too is now dead.

My wifi does not show up on my other laptop but my neighbors' networks show up and my wifi shows up on my iphone/ipod, any suggestion? i've tried plugging straight to the network>didn't work. one day it...

Hi Janet
I think you'll need someone to come round to have a look.
The basic problem doesn't make sense - if your ipod can see it then it's transmitting OK.
If your laptop can see your neighbour's wifi then your laptop is receiving. Therefor it should see your wifi.
These sorts of problems are very difficult to resolve from a distance.
The fact that you can't connect with a cable would suggest that the problem is with the laptop - but then again!!!!

BlackBerry Curve 8320 will not connect with HS-100W

If it's any consolation. My BB 8820 connects to my Zyxel NBG-460N, but after a few minutes the connection just dies (the BB still shows its connected to the WiFi, tries to use it and can in fact send packets out, but it does not receive anything any more). The router has gone through 3 firmware upgrades so far and no solution. It's also causing trouble with some USB WiFi sticks when the SSID hiding is enabled.

In short: I believe ZyXEL's WLAN support is simply broken, and you'll have to buy a WLAN AP from another manufacturer.
