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.

I cant get wifi and internet on my computer at the same time


Hi. Let's hava look at what you are doing.

I'm guessing that you have a cable modem a dlink router with wifi and a computer, right?
If you connect the cable modem to the computer you have internet. You shouild also have wfi but the wifi will not give you internet because it is disconnected from the modem.
The Dlink has to be connected to the modem but it will also need to be configured. To *** that you will need help from your cable company.
The connections should be. Modem connected to the outside world. Dlink connected to the Modem. Computer connected to the Dlink by either wifi or Ethernet.

I m not able to connect to bluetooth and wifi please help!!!!!!!!!!


Hi,

Your dell bluetooth must be turned on before able to pairing with other compatible device. Please check bluetooth switch on your laptop keyboard ( if there is you must turn it on also). Most of bluetooth devices are compatible.So please try again your bluetooth pairing .

To activate the wifi , you must covered at active wifi area / Wlan ( hotspot), then click your internet connection on right below corner ( beside battery sign) and open network and sharing center,then activate your wifi . This wifi will not work if you are outside wifi covered area.

You have to enable the WIFI button on the desk top, when you click on it it will show a power on button. when you click on that button it will turn to off, ready to turn off when you click it.

The machine will then hunt for a network within range and connect. Look for a small icon down in the right corner of the tray and see if you see a small computer screen with two radiating waves. this means that the machine has found a network and is connected. If you see a red X beside that icon instead of the radiating waves, it means you do not have a connection, If you have a connection then you can use the Internet explorer to go to a place on the internet.

The WiFi software that is embedded into the OS does not work very well. Fortunately digitalgadget.com has a download that somewhat fixes this problem fairly well. The new download is not totally goof proof, but you can work with it.

Go to: http://www.digitalgadgets.com/netbooks/update.html and download the indicated update. You can copy it to a thumb drive and connect the thumb drive to your Sylvania , find it under My Computer and then copy it to your
desktop and run it from there.

Unable to connect to the internet


Oboy this issue can be alot of things. So here are a few
1)antivirus/firewall software can stop ur connection to any and all open ports. If you have a firewall "remove it" if you have Norton 360 "remove it" if u have Norton Internet Security "remove it" then try to surf (note: alway replace ur antivirus after resolving ur issue)
2)check the internet access with another pc it may be ur ISP "internet service provider"
3)if its a laptop look for a WIFI switch make sure its on and looking for connections. If no WIFI try hooking up directly through ur hardport 10/100 network adapter
4) if u have refreshed your OS "operating system" lateley check in your device manager make sure your network drivers are loaded meaning there are no yellow question marks beside them.

Wont connect to internet


To connect to the internet using wifi on the iPod touch, just follow the following steps:
Firstly, you should be in a wifi zone(an area where you can access wifi) or if you want to use it at your house with your residential internet connection, just get yourself a wifi router(shouldn’t cost more than $50-60) and configure it with your residential internet Once you are in a wifi zone, on your iPod touch, go to:
Settings > Wifi > Turn your wifi ON > Select a wifi network > Key in the WEP(only if asked for) > Connect
Once you’re done with this, you should get the IP settings and be able to surf the internet with no problem.
Note: At times when you’re too far away from the wireless router or a big thick brick wall is separating you and the wifi router, your iPod might show the network as available and you would also be able to connect to it, but surfing the internet using it would become a problem. If this happens to you, don’t worry, just move closer to the wifi router and it shouldn’t pose any other problems. Happy Surfing!

My touch shows that I have a wifi connection, but i cant use it.


All you have to do to the ipod is go to settings, wifi and make sure its turned on in the same place you should see a list of wifi networks you can connect to just tap the one you want and the ipod will do its thing your done, but if you done all that and you ipod doesnt go online says connected but wont access the net, my guess is the wifi router you mite have some prob with that, make sure the internet ethernet cable is pluged into the modem plug not the numbered slots after this you should be good to go unless your wifi modem is new if so some req you to plug it to your computer via ethernet cable to program it first! Hope this helps

M300 toshiba connecting to locally, not connect to internet


Dear Shifsa,

Considering the fact that you are trying to connect to a wifi connection which of course is unsecured,
here are some workarounds..

1. Uninstall the wireless card driver.
Go to device manager > click on the + sign beside network adapters > right click on the wireless adapter and select uninstall. Restart the computer it should get reinstalled automatically.

2. try disabling or uninstalling the antivirus or internet security software. you can later on again download the a free software from www.hippo.com

Hope this helps.
Regards,
Anup
