There is interference between the WiFi router and the computer, such as a metal file cabinet, refrigerator, distance (too many walls), stucco, etc.
Move the router if you can or re-orient the way it is "pointing".
To test this, move the laptop into the same area as the router, temporarily.
Does it work OK when close-by? If problem persists, consider obtaining a WiFi router that supports "N" wireless, even tho your laptop is "G", the "N" router can get around interference.

Windows WiFi Fix,

Windows Zero Wireless Configuration is one of the best programs to run a WiFi in Windows XP or Vista. Most of the other software packages that come with the different adapters have been poor at best in keeping a connection through Windows. Here is the best guide to get you back up and connected.

Windows XP:


Click Start
Right click on My Computer
When a window pops up click on properties
Click on the Hardware tab
Click Device Manager
Click the [+] next to Network Adapters
Find your wireless card and right click on it.
Click Disable
Windows may warn you that disabling the device may make it stop functioning.
Continue disabling the device.
Wait 30 seconds or so.
Right click on your wireless again and click Enable.
Exit the device manager.
Reconnect to your router.
You should now be able to connect to the internet.

Windows Vista:

Click Start Logo
Right Click Computer
Click Device Manager
Windows will ask you about opening Device Manager Click Continue
Click the [+] next to Network Adapters
Find your wireless card and right click on it.
Click Disable
Windows may warn you that disabling the device may make it stop functioning.
Continue disabling the device.
Wait 30 seconds or so.
Right click on your wireless again and click Enable.
Exit the device manager.
Reconnect to your router.
You should now be able to connect to the internet.

Where do I find my SSID#


The SSID is the identifier for the wireless access point (AP) you are trying to connect to. If the AP is broadcasting, the SSID should appear in a list of available WiFi connections when you enable WiFi in proximity to the AP. The SSID is not necessarily a number, it can be ASCII text, such as "MyAP1234" or "Linksys". You click on the displayed SSID you want to connect to and if it is encrypted, you will be asked to put in the password or access code. Some AP/routers have the SSID and access codes printed on a label on the bottom of the router. Otherwise you have to get them from the provider of the WiFi access. Some AP's don't broadcast their SSID's and you have to get both items from the WiFi provider and use your phone's connect process to enter the SSID and access code.

I have a problem too involving the wifi. My wifi win't turn on. It will just say wifi turning on, but then it will go back to wifi off. And I don't have a cellular data plan. Can anyon


Hi
If you don't have a cellular data plan as you call it you will only be able to use WiFi to connect to the Internet.
To connect to a WiFi system, you may need 3 pieces of information:
A username
A password
An encryption key
Once you have successfully linked to a WiFi access point then your tablet/phone will remember the settings until told to forget them.
A lot of the time you may only need the encryption key, and if the tablet detects a WiFi access point then if you tap on that in wireless settings then it will either connect automatically or ask you for some sort of code - the encryption key. If this is not entered correctly then it will return an authentication problem/error. In order to connect you have to have this code.
Cheers

Also bear n mind that the code may or may not be case sensitive, and that the authentication type for both router and tablet needs to be the same. It is possible that you will only be able to change the authentication type on the Aceess Point / router and not on the tablet.

Netgear wifi router


1) does it lock up completely or will it work hard lined when wifi fails?
2) do all devices wireless fail or just a single device?
3) do you lose connection to the wireless completely or keep the connection but lose access to the internet? (confusing but very different to me)

in the end you could narrow down the problem but if you have already reset to factory defaults and set back up again and again then it may be time to retire that old router.

Is there a fix to wii error code 50300 ?


The Wii console's internet connection settings are not correct. This could include your network name (SSID), WEP or WPA keys, or any manual settings you may have entered.
It's possible something has changed since you last connected online with your Wii console. Try setting up a new connection file, using your router's settings.
While "Search for an Access Point" is the easiest and recommended connection type, your network may require you to use the "Manual Setup" option.
If the problem persists, try our general troubleshooting for tips.
If you are still getting this error code, please call 1-800-255-3700 for further assistance.

How do i set up my daughters connection for er dsi? error codes 051099-1 comes up and the dsi says: no access point in range. check your ssid settings or move closer to an access point. what do i need to...


This probably means your not connected to any wifi.

You can check for a wifi access point by following these steps

  1. Go to your dsi settings (the wrench icon)
  2. Scroll over to the third page, and select "Internet."
  3. now choose "connection settings"
  4. click on one of the them that says "none"
  5. Click on "Search for an Access Point."
  6. a list of wifi access points should pop up
  • The wifi connection you are connecting to must have No Security or WEP
  • If the wifi connection is WPA you will not be able to go online for games
7. Choose one of those access points to connect to and if it is secured by WEP you must put in the password for that access point.


Good luck :)

For that you need to check WAN settings and also make sure local ip settings gateway should be your router ip address. Make sure WAN settings are fine connect internet cable to WAN port of router. Then check. You can configure router with below method. Connect your router to computer with ethernet cable then you can access it with following default link. http://192.168.1.1 or http://192.168.0.1 or http://192.168.15.1 or http://192.168.2.1 If you are not able to access it with above ip then check your computers ip address gateway ip is your router ip try with it. Then it ask for user name and password. Type user as "admin" and password as "admin" or "password" or blank. Then you can see configuration page of router. Then configure wan settings and lan settings enable wireless if you want to use wifi Then save settings and restart router Then connect cable from internet service provider to WAN port of router and connect ethenet lan cable from computer to lan port of router. . Let me know if you need further assistance. Thanks for using FixYa.
