Have Eee pc with windows7. wifi connection looses connection every few minutes.Network adaptor problem

There are a few things that can cause you to lose wireless connection with your wireless router. 1. Weak signal strength, check the signal strength on your wireless card. If it is weak move the wireless router away from brick or concrete walls and if possible locate the wireless router higher up. 2. Have you secured your wireless router from people near your from unauthorized access? i.e. change the default password, setup encryption use WPA2 or WPA, change the default SSID, and turn off SSID broadcast, and for added protection, enable MAC address filtering which allows only the MAC address/es of your wireless card/s to connect to your wireless router. 3. You could be getting interference from electrical sources such as air conditioners, arc welders, washing machines etc. If so, the power supply to the wireless routers and computers etc should be connected to a surge protection power board, better still connect your computer equipment to an UPS (Uninterrupted Power Supply). 4. Check the channels of the wireless routers and access points in your area and change the broadcast channel on your wireless router to an unused channel or one that is currently used but has the weakest signal strength. This will minimize interference with your wireless router from other wireless routers and access points in your area.

I cant connect to wifi with my ibm thinkpad r30 laptop. id like to connect if possible.

If you have not yet installed the wireless card driver then install it.
To connect to your wireless router then -
Theencryption key secures your data from unauthorized access. The router's password is a Passphrase or the WEP or WPA orWPA2 encryption key. The Passphrase generates the WEP or WPA or WPA2 encryptionkey and this is in the router's wireless settings. To connect to your wireless router, configure the router'swireless settings ie SSID, plus the WPAor WPA2 encryption key and then configure wireless cards in the laptops and orcomputers with these router's wireless settings. Then the laptops and desktopcomputers can communicate with your wireless router.

I just received a ecp 7 inch notebook for my son I spend one hour on the phone with my cable company trying to connect it to my wireless rouder Please help me figure this out

1. Make sure the driver for the wireless card is installed correctly.
2. Check and see if you can see your own wireless router or any wireless network near your location.
3. Findout what your wireless network ID is(SSID)
4. Disable security on your router and see if you can connect to it.
5. If you can connect without security set the security back on the router and use the same SSID and password/key to configure your wireless adapter on your laptop.

Connect to wireless internet

There is a wireless card on it. You can use the Connect to option of your Start menu to search and connect to a wireless network connection in a public wi-fi hot spot such as starbucks. If you need to set up your home wireless network, you can use your own wireless router connected to your modem and set the network ID and password by connecting your laptop to it and open the web page with the URL of the default IP address of your wireless router and configure the settings. Use DHCP on your wireless router and your laptop TCP/IP configurations (Shown as Automatic IP address). Then you can use the connect to item in the start menu to connect to the network of your wireless router (according to the network ID you just configured). If there is a switch on your laptop to turn on wireless card, move it to turn on wireless. See the edge and the bottom of your laptop to check about that. Some helpful links:

I have just bought a hp wireless laptop but my thomson router does not come up in the list to connect to , belkin and others do, how do i add thomson to the list

Assuming that a thomson router is a wireless device and not a DSL or cable modem then check the router settings under 192.168.x.1 where x is usually listed on the back of the device and see if wireless broadcast is turned off. check you have the right wep/wpa/wpa2 settings turned on and that mac access control is turned off until you've added this new device successfully. Also check that you're not trying to use a wireless g device with a wireless b router config - ensure the broadcast and device compatibility stacks up.

Adding laptop to home system through Belkin59G .

Good Day!

I believe you are trying to connect wirelessly using your laptop to your wireless router(Belkin 59G). Try to hook it up first on your computer and check if you can go online.

If yes, then that's the time you go to the router's set up page and check the wireless security of the router so that you can connect wirelessly.

If not, then you have to reconfigure the router and the modem. If your internet service provider is cable you can just turn off the router then the modem and waitfor 5 seconds. Turn on the modem, wait for the lights to turn on then the router. After that, check if the computer will be able to go online when connected directly to the router.
