My sony vaio won't connect to the internet


We would need more information. You might be connecting via wireless and there is a function key or wireless turn on switch on your lap top. I would have you refer to your service manual as you left no model information.

New download of windows 7 won't retain or create internet connectins


Ok, this is conflicting... won't retain or create!! Doesn't it have to be created to retain it?

Did it connect before you downloaded windows 7? Exactly what happens when you try to get on the internet? Do you have the wireless switch on the laptop turned on? Do you see your wireless router? If so did you put the password in correctly? If not, it will never connect.

Wireless capability won't turn on


Make sure you Press and Hold the FN function key then hit the F2 key.

Maybe you don't have your wireless turned on. Look on both sides and in front for the Wireless Switch and turn it on.

Also once the wireless switch is turned on there are keystrokes that can toggle the wireless on or off. Normally you would Press and Hold the FN function key located at the lower left of the keyboard, then hit the correct F1 thru F12 key that toggles the wireless. The correct F1 thru F12 key to hit will have the wireless signal icon )))) on it. Or it might have the icon of a tower with the wireless signal icon )))). Normally the screen will display Wireless On or Wireless Off when you toggle the wireless.

Some laptops might have a wireless button instead of a wireless switch located above the keyboard or on the front or sides.

Won't find wireless connection


Did you turn the wireless switch on? Normally there is a switch either on the sides or the front of the laptop that you have to turn on. Sometimes it is a button at the top of the keyboard.

My reachout wireless phone won't let me dial out or recieve calls.It says [No Service] on the screen.What do i do?


  • Turn your phone off and then turn it back on. If your phone has been disconnected from the network for some reason, this should reconnect it.
  • If "No Service" stays on, you may be in a weak coverage area. Try your call again from another area.

I'm trying to connect to a home wireless network, but my HP m7480n simply won't connect. I'm supposed to have wireless capabilities, it says so on the front of the darn tower, and when I try...


The wireless switch can be in many different places depending on the computer you own. For the HP you own, specifically, I'm not sure, but it should either be somewhere in the front of the processor or it can even be on the keyboard. Look for a symbol that resembles a object with "wireless signal waves" coming out of one or two sides. Here is an example of a wireless symbol: http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bc/docs/support/SupportDocument/c00045244/c00188322.jpg

Once you locate this symbol, you should either be able to push the switch or button on which it's located to activate the wireless switch or you should be able to flip a switch next to the symbol to activate it. If you cannot locate this switch, check your user manual for instructions or contact HP directly to get step-by-step instructions. Let me know if you need anything else.
