Go to device manager, network adapters, select your wifi adapter, right click then uninstall it. If you're with Vista, do not delete the drivers. Then when its gone, select action on device manager and scan for hardware changes. It will re install the wifi adapter back. Now try to reconnect back to your router, put in your security key and once connected, save it. When you boot it up again it should connect back automatically again.

Hope this helps.

Iphone 4s no network coverage at home


By no network coverage do you mean no cellular signal or can't connect to your home wifi? If wifi trouble push settings button on iphone. Select and turn on wifi. It will search for available wireless networks. Choose your home wifi, should be the strongest signal, most bars. If you don't know your ssid , look on the sticker on the modem. For instance ssid at&t 2345. Once you select your ssid you need to enter password which is also found on the sticker on modem. Enter password and select join. You should now be connected to your wifi. This will always reconnect automatically when you leave and come back home. If not wifi issue, are you just too far from cell tower to get good signal?

What Type/Brand of router ?????

Apple's iPhone is a multimedia connectivity tool.
As such, the iPhone employs a sophisticated system to keep you connected to the web via WiFi signals so that you can stay up to date with email, mapping and media.
To use the iPhone's WiFi feature just follow these steps.
Tap a network.
If you have not yet used your iPhone's WiFi or if you're in a new WiFi area, the iPhone will show you a list of available networks.
Tap the network that you want to connect to in order to connect.
If there is a password required a little lock icon appears.
Enter the password to connect to locked networks and continue to surf the web.
Monitor your signal.
As you use your iPhone, especially if you're moving around, you should take a look at the signal strength of the connection.
The strength is indicated by a small, black broadcast symbol that stacks arches, or rounded bars, on top of one another.
The more bars there are the better the signal.

Make connecting to WiFi automatic or manual.
The iPhone is equipped to automatically search for available networks and connect you to one.
If you do not want the phone to search for networks, select the "WiFi" option on the phone's menu.
Then select either the on or off option of the "Ask To Join Networks."
Turning this option off requires that you find networks manually.

Forget a network.
Once you connect to a WiFi network once the iPhone automatically remembers the network and connects you to it at a later opportunity.
To forget a network so you don't get automatically connected choose the "WiFi" option on the menu.
Then tap the right arrow button next to one of the networks that the iPhone already remembers. Then tap "Forget This Network" to erase the phone's memory of the network.

Troubleshoot Wi-Fi Connection Problems on an iPhone
If you experience Wi-Fi connectivity issues on your iPhone, you may need to reset the Wi-Fi connection.
Your connectivity issues could be caused by the wrong password if you are having trouble logging into the Wi-Fi network or from a problem in your iPhone's settings.
By resetting the Wi-Fi connection, you are clearing out the previous settings created when you first connected to the network.

Tap the Settings icon on the iPhone's home screen, and tap the Wi-Fi tab.
Swipe the switch on the Wi-Fi tab to ensure Wi-Fi is enabled on your iPhone.
Tap the blue arrow button on the network tab you are connected to in the network list, and tap "Forget this Network."
Tap the "Forget Network" button that appears on the pop-up menu to confirm the action.

Tap the Wi-Fi Networks tab in the upper-left corner to return to the previous screen, and tap the network's tab in the network list to re-join it.
Press the Home button on the iPhone, and tap the Safari icon on the home screen to test the Wi-Fi connection.
Tap the blue arrow icon on the network's tab if the connectivity problem persists, and tap the "Renew Lease" button at the bottom of the network's window.
Tap the "Renew Lease" button on the pop-up box to confirm the action.
Tap the Home button on the iPhone, and tap the Safari icon on the home screen to test the network connection.

I have just purchased an eMachine e350, I am having trouble connecting to wifi through the home router(it is on)...I am putting in the security key code but it is saying it is a mismatch...my fathers...


I understood your problem...first check your laptop WIFI is on/off....after switching it on it automatically search for WIFI connectivity arround you...

If your father's laptop find/access that WIFI device then you have problem in code authentication....best solution is that you should remove authentication check....before connecting ..

Second thing is that such a problem cause due to improper installation of of wirless broadcom drivers for your eMachine e350......so ultimately you should re-install wifi drivers from provided CD/DVD...

Restart your device it automatically detect hardware and functions properly...

My lap is acer aspire one notebook.when turns on,its wi-fi launches automatically. how can i solve this???


don't you have a WiFi button on your laptop to disable WiFi?

we have to use the touchpoint on the top of keyboard to turn off.
Swith is sometimes SIDEWAYS also depending on the model .


Go into the network and sharing centre then change adaptor settings right click the wireless adaptor and choose disable. this should stop it - just remember you did it if you ever need to use it
==========================================


If in case there is no button .
In this notebook there isnt WiFi button, it starts when you press Fn+F3, actually the menu comes and then you turn on or off by use of command.
==============================================


The best way to do this is to go to the Network and Sharing center, look upper left and click on "Manage Wireless Networks" click on the wireless network connection you want to keep from connecting automatically and uncheck the box to connect automatically like the picture below shows. Hope this helps

My wifi is not connecting automatically


Hi benchbnr75,
I see that you want your Wifi or Wireless to connect automatically, I believe that you have a Network at home.
To begin setting your Laptop to connect automatically to your Network follow the steps below.
  • Click on start, click on Control Panel in Control Panel upper right hand side look for view by: then click on the drop down and select small icons.
  • After selcting small icons you should see a screen with a bunch of icons, look for Network and Sharing Center.
  • In Network and Sharing Center you will see a window, see below image.
mvincentc_16.jpg

  • The yellow Highlighted portion is where Manage Wireless Networks will be, I just don't have wireless on my PC that is why it doesn't show.
  • Once you click on the Manage Wireless Networks you will be on a different page, and you will see a list of the networks that your Laptops has for Internet connection select the Wireless Network that you connect to double left click on it then click next it will open a window for that Network, you will see boxes on that window put a check on the one that say automatically connect to this network when in range.
  • After doing the above instructions click on Apply or OK if you have any of the 2 then you will be set on the issue, the next time you restart your wireless will connect automatically.
I hope that I have given you enough information regarding your concern, have a nice day.
Thanks.

IPod Touch does not connect to my home network?


In my case, I keep getting endlessly prompted to enter my passcode for my wireless router. I found that if I reboot the iTouch - hold down the top power button and slide the "slide to power off". Wait for it to finish powering off and then power it back on by holding the same button. When it comes back up it automatically connects to my home network again. Seems to happen every time I connect to an outside wifi network and then return home... I wish I knew WHY it does this - I suspect it has something to do with how my home wireless router is configured.

Wifi network


This laptop definately doesn't come with inbuilt wifi card, but does contain the necessary socket to either connect one internally (along with already built in aerial cables to connect it to:) or to use the PCMCIA card slot to insert/install a network card into the side of the machine.
