Hi,

This method will hard reset the wireless drivers back to default settings, but before you perform this remove power from the modem and router for 2 minutes reconnect power and wait another 2 minutes for them to settle down.

Right click "computer" select "manage" and then "device manager", a list will populate, then click on the + sign next to "network adapters" and right click on the wireless adapter and "uninstall" the device, reboot the PC and wait for windows to detect the wireless card and install the drivers for it, this will appear in the system tray (bottom right hand side) when its done try to connect again.


Good luck

Our rj45 is reading no cell. what could be wrong?


I'm not sure what do you mean by "your rj45". If it's a model of a router, maybe you mean that you can't get connected you smartphone to the router?
Are you sure SETTING of your phone is activated?
With setting activated, take your phone to a hotspot - site where you have free Internet connection.
If still can't connect it, probably the WiFi adapter circuit (well, anything like that) of your cell phone is failing. an you shouls check it with an authorized repair service.
Ok, that's my idea. Actually you can input a google search for

My I phone 4 WONT LOAD ANY WEB PAGES PR CONNECT TO INTERNET


Hi Zeisly,

There are two ways to go online on your phone:

1. Via GPRS/HSDPA - Your network operator
Not sure which operator you are with, but you need a working SIM card with a data plan as well as the correct APN settings on your phone to tell the phone how to connect to the operator's internet port.
2. Via Wifi, your own at home or public hotspot
For this your phone will need to have wifi, enabled, and set up with the wifi password entered correctly.

The phone should see which is working and use the appropriate connection to connect you to the internet.

Hope this helps.

My iPad keeps telling me I am not connected to the Internet when I am trying to download ios7.4 upgrade. Yet I know I am.


Internet connections can fail at any point from service provider to your iPad. Just being connected to a wifi network doesn't necessarily mean you still have full internet access. Your modem could be frozen and your wifi router would still seem to be fully functional. Try opening your ipad's web browser and bringing up a couple websites. If you can not get any websites loaded, try troubleshooting your wifi. But if they do load, then yes, you are indeed connected to the internet, and I would recommend restarting the iPad and trying again.

Won't connect to internet


Step 1:

Go To Settings

Step 2:

Touch the WiFi settings under the settings app. It should be the first, at the very top

Step 3:

Slide your finger over the WiFi logo. It should then say that WiFi is online

Step 4:

After a few seconds of letting your phone check for nearby internet connections, click the correct network that you wish to connect to.

Step 5:

If your WiFi network has no password you should be able to click on it and then click connect and you should be fine.

Step 6:

If your WiFi network has a password. Enter your password and then click connect.

Step 7:

Then your done! :)
