Ghostery turned off wireless signal

Hi There,
It's certainly purely coincidence that your network cut out after installing ghostery. The program has literally nothing to do with your network connection, it's simply a browser add-on.
The problem more than likely lies within your computer OS, either you've hit the wireless switch on your laptop (turn it back on) or (Fn+F8) or you've mangled your internet connection settings in your firefox options.
If all else fails, try removing the power plug from your router for 30 seconds, plug it back in and allow it to boot fully.

Below are the instructions on how to power-cycle your network. This will fix a lot of out-of-the-blue network issues.
Unplug the power to your modem and router. Also, turn off your computer. Now that everything is powered down, wait 60 seconds. Then, plug the power back in to ONLY your modem. Wait another 60 seconds. Plug the power cable back in to your router. Wait another 60 seconds and then turn on your computer. Once your computer loads Windows and you see your desktop with all of your icons, give it a chance to connect to your network and open Internet Explorer.
If this does not work, then I need more information about your network. First, how many computers do you have on this network? If you have other computers on this network, do they connect with an ethernet cable or wirelessly? Can the other computers get on the Internet, or is it just this PC which is having the issue? What brand of router do you have? Which version of Windows are you running on your Aspire One? And, finally, do you have DSL or cable Internet (if you have DSL, obtain your DSL username and password - as well as any other pertinent settings - from your ISP)? Please reply to this answer if the above instructions did not fix your issue. If the above instructions worked, then disregard these questions.

After working fine for approx 2 years, my laptop will not connect to my wireless network unless I'm in the same room as the router. I was running vista ultimate 64bit when this started happening....


i would try this

do down to the internet icon bottom right of you screen
click on it to open it
then open network and sharing
delete the wireless network that you was using
now wait a few seconds and windows should tell you wireless networks available
then click on the network icon again to open it find the name of your router
click on it then go down to click connect
and if you have set a password on the router you will need to enter that password
if you did nt the password may be the one written on the base of the router
or if none at all is set then hopefully it will connect for you

hope this has helped you
please let us know if this has helped you so that we may be able to help others
many thanks

Recent computer devices are wireless compartibilbles least requiring network adaptors to establish. Ascertain the computers recent innovations also from where enabling the Wi-Fi features capturing available peripherals. For example, ascertain that another device from where networking requires establishment has wireless feature from where computer recognizes. Where each device are wireless compatible would recognize requiring passes to communicate with network structures. In a situation that one of the device has password sets, would require ascertain what entry passes makes connectivity. For example, networked computer already established requires verifying from network administrator to capture another device on the structures. Also, condition where the computer devices are prior innovations would require modems or adaptor devices or routers to complement the network structure or signal sharing. Such a situation requires ascertain the host computers as the administration point from where passwords are distributed to each device peripherals.

There are lots of possibilities here. The first thing is IF you are connected through a wireless network, Disconnect from the network. If you are networked directly into the Comcast modem, disconnect from the cable modem. If you disconnect from the network entirely and things seem to return to normal, then it is possible that you have a cable modem problem, a wireless router problem or someone has hacked into your network. The latter is most likely if you are running a wireless router and it is unsecured as this allows others to use your wireless network without your permission. If you disconnect from the network and things seem to improve only slightly, try running a virus scan while disconnected from the network and see what pops up. If anything has been downloaded to your computer a virus scan should find it. I would also recommend going in and making sure file sharing is turned off. If things seem okay after a virus scan, then try hooking back up to the network. If everything seems okay at that point, then most likely the cable modem or router are okay. If you still have a problem after reconnecting to the network try resetting the cable modem and the router. If you continue to have problems, I would call Comcast at that point and have them help you troubleshoot the cable modem to see if there is a problem with the modem.

Compaq n6120 - can't connect wireless

Most wireless networks are setup as infrastructure networks, meaning all communication is to/from a wireless access point/router that serves the same function as a switch/hub in a wired network as a central point to transfer communications from machine to machine. One works over the air the other through a wire.

There is an alternate form of wireless networking refered to as ad hoc -- in this version of wireless networking every wireless adapter can "talk" to any other wireless adapter configured with the same SSID (name) and security encryption (none, WEP, WPA). This is how somewhat less impromptu wireless networks are created similar to impromptu infrared networks some of us have used. One limitation of the ad hoc networks I have seen configured to date is access to the internet. I have posted an article where a stationary PC (required to be running for any other wireless machine to access the internet) with a wireless card in ad hoc mode could act as the router for wireless network but it required a cabled connection the internet. I suppose it could be a second wireless connection on a separate channel with a second wireless adapter in an infrastructure network but why? These types of networks are only recommended in another article for a limited (small) number of machines.

Based on this are you asking to create an ad hoc network to connect 2 PC's wirelessly without a wireless router or access to the internet from the wireless network (without a dedicated machine)?
