Hello

Most of the time wireless problems are cause by virus's. So let's look at a couple of things first. Goto Start, Run and type cmd. Once at the DOS prompt type IPCONFIG /all. You should get a list with one of the items being"Connection." If you do look at IP Address. If there's a number to the right such as 192.168.1.1 then your internet conection is fine and your browser is the problem. Another way to test this is to go to the DOS prompt and type Ping Sony.com. At least two lines should return with the beginning : Reply from . . . This means that your actual connection is alright but your browser is infected. Now if when you run IPCONFIG /all and you see nothing the WINSOCK files are corrupt and/or missing. To correct this first make sure your machine has no virus's malware or spyware. Then goto Start, Run and type SFC /scannow. Have the original operating system CD handy because if SFC finds corrupted files it will need to reinstall them. If now of the above produces satisfactory results you might have to do a Windows repair. I can walk you through this after you try the above.

Check the router/modem is broadcasting SSID check settings on laptop, check there isn't a switch to turn it off that has been operated. Wifi can be hit and miss due to hardware problems you may need new router / modem or wifi card.

My computer doesnt want it connect to internet,, appear the connection icon but when the page try to open , it cant do


Please follow the steps provided below:

Q: Basic Wireless Troubleshooting
A:
Wireless Troubleshooting
The following steps will help determine if the wireless card in the system is functioning properly.
IMPORTANT:
Please go through all the troubleshooting steps. If the wireless card is functioning properly, please check the network configuration. Acer America can not assist with configuring the network.
Before you start:
  • Make sure there is a wireless router or wireless access point.
  • The wireless router/access point is plugged in.
  • Refer to the owners manual to ensure the wireless adapter is on (you can turn the wireless card on and off by pressing a clear button)
  • Contact the internet service provider to make sure ther account is active and the network is connected in a way that supports their configuration.
If the computer was working properly at an earlier time:
If the laptop was working fine, do a System Restore which rolls the system back to the last known working configuration. System Restore is located in System Tools under Accessories. Here is a link to explain the use of this feature:
http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;306084
To find the wireless network:
1. Click on Start winxpstart%20button.jpg then click on "Control Panel."
xpmenu.jpg 2. In the Control Panel window, click on "Network and Internet Connections."

xpcontrolpanel.jpg
3. In the "Network and Internet Connections" window, click on "Network Connections."

networkconnect.jpg 4. Once in Network Connections, right-click on the wireless connection then select "View available wireless networks"
5. If the wireless network is a secured network, please refer to the manual of the wireless router to make it unsecured for the purpose of testing the wireless network.
NOTE: Acer does not recommend leaving a wireless network unsecured and is not responsible for data accessed due to unsecured wireless networks.
6. If the wireless network is listed, the wireless adapter is functioning properly. If unable to connect to the wireless router, go through "Before you start" at the beginning of this article.

I had a Dell3110cn networked with our office yesterday the printer was unplugged from the computer it was set up on. When it was hooked back up none of the printers on the network can connect to it.


Thank you for using FixYa

It seems to have lost the road map. It may have a button on the front to refresh the wireless connection, but it might have saved the configuration on the server, so the server may need to be reset while the printer is connected to the network. It might also need to be reinstalled, so you should contact your network admin. and ask them if you are not familiar with the process.



I hope this was useful and please comment if this was helpful to you.

Lost network key on belkin router with virgin broadband


the easiest would be to login to the router and set another network key.
if you're unable to login you'll have to reset the router and reconfigure it.

Wireless network


First thing to do is look on your laptop... all the way around the sides, for a network switch... most newer laptops have one to switch your wireless on and off...

if none or is on:
go to your control panel/System/Hardware/Device Manager


and see if your network card is giving off an error or is working properly..
from there you can uninstall the driver and reinstall it, or update it..
if that still doesnt help... reset your router, refresh and renew your ip....(open Start/Run...type CMD... then type ipconfig /release.... then type ipconfig /renew

then click on the network icon in your control panel and try reconnecting to your network... readding your ssid and wep key if necessary...

hope this helps..

Vista/router/wireless connection


Make sure that all the wireless cards are set in the properties to obtain an ip address automatically, dissable the wired lan adpter connections as this can confuse the router. Restart all the pc's and then right click on the wireless pc icon in your task bar and then click view wireless networks and make sure that you are connected to your network and that the internet is available, known as local & internet in Vista. open up internet explorer, go to tools, internet options and delete browsing history cookies and temp files and then refresh the page as the proxy server will need to refresh.
