If you look in the bottom right hand corner of your screen on the taskbar, you should see a small icon thats looks like two computers....right click this and select "Connect to a network" ....you will probably need to enter a hex code which is usually located on a label on the bottom of your modem.

Wireless connection or hardwired ethernet ?

Which ISP are you contracted to give them a call let them know of your problems or go to another ISP and phone company
Wi-Fi Internet is a popular and convenient way of accessing web pages and other online applications. A wireless router broadcasts an Internet signal, which enables a computer with a wireless capability to access online applications and sites. Problems with wireless connections require a different approach to troubleshooting than traditional, wired Internet connections. If you find that the wireless connection on your laptop frequently drops out, take a few troubleshooting steps to narrow down the issue and restore your laptop's full functionality.

Reset your network by unplugging the power cords of your Internet modem and wireless router. Wait 30 seconds before replugging the power cords. Restarting your computer will allow the devices to run through their full boot cycle. Test your connectivity after rebooting to verify whether it remains more consistent after the reset. Test your wireless Internet consistency on another Wi-Fi connection that you're legally allowed to use, such as a free public Wi-Fi hotspot. If the connection stays consistent when you're away from home, the problem is likely localized to your home wireless network. If the connection drops no matter which wireless network you are connected to, the problem is more likely with your laptop's wireless card or internal wireless device. Connect the Ethernet cable directly from one of the numbered Ethernet ports on the wireless router to one of the Ethernet ports on your computer. This is a useful way of testing whether the Internet connection is dropping altogether or if your laptop is merely losing its wireless signal strength. If the connection stays more consistent this way, contact the manufacturer of the router or of your computer's wireless card to troubleshoot the device. Plug the Ethernet cable directly from your Internet modem to one of your computer's Ethernet ports. Bypassing the router is useful for further narrowing down the source of your issue. If the connection stays more consistent this way, your router is likely the source of the problem and you should contact the manufacturer of the router for assistance. If the connection continues to drop, contact your Internet service provider to address a possible issue with your modem. wireless network card Go to the Start menu and open the Control Panel. In the Control Panel, open the Device Manager. Locate Network Adapters in the Device Manager list. Click on the plus sign next to Network Adapters to expand a list of all networking devices on your computer. Your wireless card should be listed, and most likely a LAN adapter as well. Alternately, you can open the Network and Sharing Center in the Control Panel, and then click on "Manage Network Connections." Find your wireless connection in the list and right-click it, then select "Status." Under the Status menu, click "Details." This will produce a list of information about your Internet connection, including your wireless card.
Test a Wireless Network Card b> laptop or desktop computer that has no built-in wireless capability needs a wireless network card installed in order for the computer to detect and connect to wireless connections. Before you can establish wireless connection, however, you need to make sure that that your wireless network card is working properly.

Ensure that the wireless network card is properly installed in the computer. A wireless network card can come as a PC/PCMCIA card that only needs to be inserted into a PC card slot in your computer, or it may be a wireless PCI card that needs to be installed inside the computer. Wireless PC/PCMCIA cards are usually used for laptops while wireless PCI cards are installed in desktop computers. Install the driver of the wireless network card. Note that if the driver is not installed, the wireless network card will not be able to communicate with the computer. Insert the installation CD into the optical drive, wait for the computer to recognize the installer and follow the on-screen instructions. Finish the installation procedure and then reboot the computer. If you do not have the installation CD, download the installer/driver from the manufacturer's website. Check if the computer can detect wireless networks and Internet connections. Access the "System Tray" at the bottom-right corner of your screen and double-click the "wireless icon." Browse through the list of available wireless networks and then connect to any one of them. If there is no "wireless icon" in your system tray, the wireless card may not be properly installed to the computer or the device may be malfunctioning. If you cannot connect to a wireless connection, ensure that you entered the correct network password (if connecting to a secured network).

Connected to wifi but no internet connection


Wireless networks have become an increasingly popular way to access the Internet. Connecting to a wireless network allows you to browse the Internet without having to physically connect any cords to your computer.


Troubleshooting wireless connectivity can sometimes be confusing, because even if a wireless network is not able to bring you to any web pages, often your computer's wireless card will still connect to the wireless network that is being broadcast.


In other words, a wireless network will read "connected" even if it is not connected to the Internet.


Connect to a different wireless network. If there is an alternate wireless network within range of your computer that you legally are able to use (a free public Wi-Fi rather than your neighbor's wireless network, for instance), try connecting to it and browsing the Internet.


If the same issue occurs on the alternate wireless network, you may have an issue with your computer's wireless card or with your Internet browser.


If you are able to connect to the alternate network but still not able to connect to your own, the problem is most likely localized to the wireless network you use at home.


Reset all devices.

The great majority of Internet connection issues can be resolved by a simple reset of all the devices in your home network.


Locate the power cords of both your modem and your wireless router and unplug them (if you use a modem/router combination, simply unplug its power cord) for a full 30 seconds.


Plug them back in and restart your computer.

Try to connect to the Internet using your wireless network after your computer has booted back up.


If the connection still fails, some further troubleshooting is required.

Bypass your wireless router.


If your computer's wireless card is connecting to your wireless network of choice yet you are still not able to access any websites, there may be a connection issue on either your modem or router.


The easiest way to locate the problem is to temporarily eliminate the router from the network. Locate the Ethernet cable that connects your modem to your router and unplug it from the router.


Plug the cable directly into one of the Ethernet ports on your computer and reset the modem in the manner described above.


Now try your Internet connection again. If there is still no Internet access, the problem is most likely with your modem or your computer; contact the technical support department of your Internet service provider (ISP) for further assistance.


If the modem goes online directly connected, your router is causing the problem and may need to be reconfigured. Contact the router manufacturer for further assistance.


Hope this helps

Acer Aspire 5733 Wireless connection lost


Check the wireless router and high-speed modem.

If the two are not powered on, or if the Ethernet cable connected the two is not completely inserted into both connection ports, you are unable to access the Internet on the Acer Aspire One laptop computer.


Activate the wireless Internet connection on the laptop computer.

Right-click the wireless icon on the desktop, then choose "Enable" from the pop-up menu.


Without activating the wireless receiver on the Acer Aspire One, the laptop is unable to detect any wireless network.


Select the appropriate network you wish to connect to.


Your computer may be attempting to connect to a different Internet connection, preventing you from access the network you desire. Right-click the wireless icon, select "Search for available wireless networks," then choose the network you want to access.


Restart the computer.


The system may have booted and failed to detect the wireless receiver. Restarting the computer corrects this issue.


hope this helps

Wi fi is on but still can't connect to the internet


Not only does Wi-Fi have to be on, but it has to be connected to a wireless access point (sometimes called a wireless router), and the wireless access point has to be properly connected to the internet.If the wireless access point/router has empty ports on it, plug your computer into one of those ports, and see if you can connect to ther internet then. If you can, the problem is somewhere between the wireless access point/router and the computer. Could be the transmitter part of the wireless router, could be the wireless network adapter on your computer, or could be the driver that runs the wireless adapter on the computer. If you cannot access the internet when you plug into the wireless ap/router, then you need to go one step "upstream." This would likely be the cable modem or DSL modem. Plug directly into that with your computer, and reboot both the modem and the computer (just unplug the power from the modem and then plug it back in to reboot the modem). If you can connect to the internet then, the problem is the wireless router/ap. If you cannot connect to the internet then, contact your ISP.

The wireless internet connection wont work. we previously had a wireless connection and now it wont register. we lost the connection completely and it doesnt show up on the list of internet connections....


Try turning off the router for 30 secs, then power it up again.
Then try connecting a LAN cable from the computer to the router and see if you can connect to the Internet.
If you can connect to the Internet then -
With the LAN cable open a browser and type in the configuration URL and check the Wireless settings, then check and/or the wireless card settings (it should have the router's SSID and encryption settings etc.)
Also install the latest wireless card driver.
Then test the wireless and Internet connection. If this doesn't work -
Next connect the computer with a LAN cable to the cable or DSL modem to see if you can connect to the Internet.
If you cannot get an Internet connection with the LAN cable, contact your ISP and get them to test the connection to your modem.
If the modem and Internet is OK and you still cannot get a wireless connection then the problem could be a faulty wireless router.

Can't connect to internet if it is not synced to computer....help please


This unit works on WiFi so will only connect to the internet when in close range to a wireless router. Make sure your wireless card is connected properly and is actually sending out a signal. Go to "control pannel" then "network connections" and see if the connection is good. You can reconfigure your wireless network by going to "control panel" then "wireless network setup wizard" Good luck!

Losing internet connection when enabling ICS on the wireless network connection


Do not enable ICS on any of the computers that are connected to a router regardless if it's wired or wireless, you only need to enable ICS is if you don't have a router/server on your network(the purpose of a router is to share a single internet connection from your ISP). To connect your computer wirelessly to the router(on a Windows XP computer given that you do not have a 3rd party Wi-fi application installed) is to right click on wireless network connection on the System Tray(lower right hand side of the computer's Desktop near where the clock is) or you can do it the hard way by going to Control Panel then Network Connections and choose view available wireless network and under the list of available network that your computer can detect, select the network name(also called SSID) of your wireless router and try to connect(of course if you enabled Wi-fi security you also need to key-in the security key(WEP/WPA) you configured on your router and that's it both wired and wireless computer/devices connected to the router should work at the same time.

Computer interfacing


You have a computer (what manufacturer and model?) connected to a Netgear WGR614 wireless router (please confirm the router manufacturer and model) by wire or wireless?

If the computer is connected wireless is it with a wireless adapter built into the computer or added to the computer?

If it was added to the computer what is the manuracturer's name and model of the add-on device?

Has any other computer ever successfully connected to the internet using your router?
  • If so was the computer connected using a wire, if possible?
  • If so was the computer connected wirelessly?
If no computers were connected successfully to the router please provide the name of your internet service provider?
I also may need to know the city and state you are located in or other information. We probably need to configure the router to attach to your internet service providers equipment

The following are to determine if the internet service providers equipment has been successfully installed and the capabilities of that equipment as it may support connecting your router, if necessary, and your computer to the internet.
Were any computers ever successfully connected to the internet by directly connecting to your internet service providers hardware?

If yes how were they connected
  • USB cable?
  • Ethernet Cable?
  • Wireless?
  • If wireless what is the manufacturer and model of the internet serivce providers hardware providing the wireless service?
