You have a wireless network and you want to stop people from accessing your wireless network. For this you will need to secure your wireless network. You will need to enable the security on the wireless network.
You can do it by accessing the router set up interface.
Make sure that when you will change the wireless settings on the router, your computer will be connected to the router with the cable.

Not connecting to google server. Even there is wifi connection.


There is a difference between establishing a Wi-Fi connection, than the connection to your internet. Although you see a connection with your Wi-Fi, your Wi-Fi is just like a cordless phone connection. You remember those old rotary phones you would have to charge on the charger/ receiver (Which is connected to the phone cord outlet on located in the wall). Just as how WiFi works, The range is limited. Just because you have no problems with your WI-Fi connection, you may not have an internet connection on which it may have something to do with your ISP (Internet Service Provider). The best way to find if you are communicating out side your home network, Open the "COMMAND PROMPT" Type ; ping google.com (press Enter)

If you are communicating out side your home network you should get results like this displayed below;

Pinging google.com [216.58.216.46] with 32 bytes of data:
Reply from 216.58.216.46: bytes=32 time=39ms TTL=52
Reply from 216.58.216.46: bytes=32 time=40ms TTL=52
Reply from 216.58.216.46: bytes=32 time=39ms TTL=52
Reply from 216.58.216.46: bytes=32 time=39ms TTL=52
Ping statistics for 216.58.216.46:
Packets: Sent = 4, Received = 4, Lost = 0 (0% loss),
Approximate round trip times in milli-seconds:
Minimum = 39ms, Maximum = 40ms, Average = 39ms


If you're not communicating out side your home network; it will display.

Ping request could not find host google.com. Please check the name and try again.

Wi-Fi is to connect your devices to the Gateway (Wi-Fi Router/Modem) which your gateway provides the connection to your internet. You are not having problems with your Wi-Fi, you're having problems communicating outside your home network. When this occurs, unplug your Gateway (Modem/Router) and check to see if it restores your connection. If this does not work, call your ISP to check for outages. Other situations is not paying your internet bill which may have caused your ISP to disconnect your service.

C an not buy muisic,they said, i'm not connect to the internet


Hello,

You have to ocnnect your iphone to internet first , Follow below step to connect to internet

When you use any Internet enabled application, iPhone does the following in order until connected:
  1. Connects over the last Wi-Fi network you used that's available.
  2. If no Wi-Fi networks you've used are available, shows a list of Wi-Fi networks in range. Tap a network and, if necessary, enter the password to join. Networks that require a password show ht1695_1.jpg next to them.
  3. If no Wi-Fi networks are available or you choose not to join any, iPhone connects over the cellular data network.
Note: You can be on a call and use Wi-Fi or 3G1 at the same time. Other cellular data networks are unavailable while you're on a call.
Wi-Fi
  • Wi-Fi is often faster than cellular data networks. Wi-Fi networks cover limited areas. iPhone can join AirPort and other Wi-Fi networks at home, at work, or at Wi-Fi hot spots around the world.
    When iPhone is connected to a Wi-Fi network, the Wi-Fi icon ht1695_2b.jpg in the status bar at the top of the screen shows connection strength. The more bars you see, the stronger the connection.
  • To see all the Wi-Fi networks in range, from the Home screen choose Settings > Wi-Fi. Tap a network to join it.
  • Many Wi-Fi networks can be used free of charge, and some require a fee. To join a Wi-Fi network at a hot spot where charges apply, in most cases you can open Safari to see a webpage that allows you to sign up for service.
For information about configuring Wi-Fi settings, see the "Wi-Fi" section of the iPhone User's Guide.
Note: iOS devices sold in China may use the term Wireless LAN (WLAN) instead of Wi-Fi. Not all China iPhone models support WLAN; see this article for more information.
Cellular data networks
  • Cellular data networks allow Internet connectivity over the cellular network. Check your carrier's network coverage in your area for availability.
    You can tell iPhone is connected to the Internet over a cellular data network if you see ht1695_utms_onb.png,ht1695_3b.jpg or ht1695_gprs_onb.png in the status bar at the top of the screen.
    If you're outside your carrier's network, you may be able to use a cellular data network from another carrier. Roaming charges may apply.
    Note: If not on 3G, while iPhone is actively transferring data over the cellular data network-downloading a webpage, for example-you may not be able to receive calls. Incoming calls may go to voicemail.
I hope , after this , you will be able to connect to Internet....

Thanks

I can not connect to the internet on my psp


There are different ways to connect to the internet. First of all, you need a Wi-fi Network. This can be done by purchasing a Router. This allows internet signals to "circulate your house". If you want to be cheap, you can go to Starbucks or McDonald's and Wi-Fi should be free there.
