Only two reasons a wireless connection fails..no/weak signal, incorrect WEP key.(or WPA or what have you) if you aren't able to see your wireless adapter, thats a different scenario

I cannot connect to the WIFI at work, but I can connect to my WIFI network at home, and other public networks. The wireless network at work is pushed by a D-Link 8200AP with a WAP security, just like it is...


Your laptop cannot connect to your work's wireless network because the security settings (ir WAP) in the D-Link is different to the security setting in your Netgear.
The wireless card in your laptop will need the settings changed to suit the D-Link's wireless settings ie the SSID and WAP.
You will need to change the wireless card settings in your laptop back to the Netgear's wireless settings to connect to your wireless network at home.
Some wireless cards allow you to set up different profiles for different wireless networks which allow you to switch wireless networks easily by just selecting the profile for the network you want to connect to.

My wifi doesn't connect to any routers but it connect to my laptop ad-hoc.Still i am not able to use internet through ad-hoc.I have tried restoring my iphone, reset and erase settings, reset network...


Ad-hoc is a computer to computer connection.
You need to change the wireless configuration to Access Point (Infrastructure) mode with encryption.

Your wireless card in your computer or laptop needs to be configured with the router's wireless settings eg. the SSID and encryption key
The encryption key (network key) is in your wireless router, without this key the wireless router won't allow the computer or laptop to connect to this wireless router.
The WEP, WPA, WPA2 encryption key is in your router's wireless settings. Log into your router and got to the wireless settings, you will need to get the SSID and the encryption key. Then go to your computer or laptop's wireless card and configure it with the router's SSID and encryption key, so it will then connect to the wireless router and the Internet.

Hi, I wonder if you can help? I have a wireless-G ADSL2+Gateway and wish to use another laptop aswell as my own. When attempting to connect the 2nd laptop, it will not allow it, and there is a lock symbol...


The settings for these instruments are more or less same. I am using a product from netgear.
I can suggest you to check the access control list (ACL) in security settings of your wireless-G.
Initailly disable access control of wireless-G and allow all the devices (laptops or PDAs etc) you want to connect. From the "attached devices list" you can find out the devices of your own. Put the mac addresses of those devices in the access cntrol list. Then enable access control list of wireless-G and reboot it. Now all your laptops that were added to the ACL of wireless-G should be allowed access. Hope this solves your problem.

Make sure that you can go online when connected direclty to the router. If yes, then the problem lies with the wireless settings. if not, then you will have to configure the router itself for both wired and wireless connection.

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue.

Wireless Network gone from Toshiba Laptop all of a sudden.


Please try to scan and connect to your wireless network at a distance of around 6 to 7 feet from the router. This might help if there are any interference issues at play.

Also, you could manually create a profile for your wireless network on that laptop and try.

Alternatively, you could update the drivers for the adapter on the Toshiba laptop and check it out.

Please let me know if the above helps. Also, kindly rate the solution, if it helps.

Thank you.

With Warm Regards

Wireless internet connection


be sure to turn on the wireless switch on your laptop. press Fn and F8 to turn on wifi. try to reconnect to the network. if it doesn't work, uninstall/reinstall the device driver for your toshiba laptop. if you know how to reconfigure the router, you need to change the SSID and change the passphrase. (if this is a secured network) if you don't know how to reconfigure the router, please contact your router manufacturer.

i hope this helps.

Go into your network settings and disable the ethernet and enable the wireless, you can also press Function F2 to enable wireless on a laptop. You may also try setting up wireless connection from the network settings if it still will not connect. Also you should be sure the network is not secured, and that your browser is told to never dial a connection.
