For this you will need to access the router set up. Is there any computer connected to the router with the ethernet cable ? If not then you will need to connect the computer to the router. You can now access the router set up. On the set up page of the router, you can change the wireless settings. Click Here for step by step solution

HOW TO CHANGE THE INTERNET SETTINGS IN THE HTC WILDFIRE A3333


Wi-Fi provides wireless Internet access over distances of up to 100 meters (00 feet).

To use Wi-Fi on your phone, you need access to a wireless access point or "hotspot". The availability
and range of the Wi-Fi signal depends on the number, infrastructure, and other objects
through which the signal passes.

Turning Wi-Fi on and connecting to a wireless network
From the Home screen, press MENU, and then tap Settings > Wireless & networks.
Select the Wi-Fi check box to turn Wi-Fi on. The phone then scans for available wireless
networks.

Tap Wi-Fi settings. The network names and security settings of detected Wi-Fi networks
are displayed in the Wi-Fi networks section.
If the wireless network you want to connect to is not in the list of detected networks,
scroll down the screen, and then tap Add Wi-Fi network. Enter the wireless network
settings, and then tap Save.

Tap the Wi-Fi network you want to connect to.
If you selected an open network, you will be automatically connected to the network.
If you selected a network that is secured with WEP, enter the key and then tap
Connect.

Depending on the network type and its security settings, you may also need to enter more information
or choose a security certificate.
When your phone is connected to a wireless network, the Wi-Fi icon appears in the
status bar and tells you the approximate signal strength (number of bands that light up).
The next time your phone connects to a previously accessed secured wireless network, you
will not be prompted to enter the key or other security information again, unless you reset
your phone to its factory default settings.

I got this computer for christmas and I cant get it to connect to any wireless wifi system. I dont know what I'm doing wrong. Could you please give me some instructions on how to connect it to a home...


The Network and Sharing Center in Microsoft* Windows Vista* can be used to set up a secure wireless connection to the Internet.

Note: If an Internet connection is not automatically made by the operating system, you may need to contact your access point (AP), broadband wireless router manufacturer, or Internet Service Provider (ISP).

Set Up a Secure Wireless Connection to the Internet


These steps assume that your network adapter; AP or router; and cable, DSL or another type of modem have already been physically connected and configured. They allow you to create a new connection and configure it accordingly.

Follow these steps to set up a secure wireless connection to the Internet.

Note: If a wireless profile does not exist, you will need to create a secure wireless profile before you can set up a wireless connection to the Internet.

1. Access the Network and Sharing Center.

2. Select Set up a connection or network.

3. Click Connect to the Internet.

4. Click Next.

5. Select Wireless. At this point, if the network(s) that are listed say that the network settings do not match the network requirements, as shown in Figure 1, create a secure wireless profile and then follow the steps again.

6. Select a network and click Connect. If you are not connected to the Internet, you may need to contact your AP/router manufacturer or ISP.

Access the Network and Sharing Center


To access the Network and Sharing Center, use one of the following methods:
  • Start » Control Panel » Network and Internet » Network and Sharing Center
  • Start » Network » Network and Sharing Center
  • Right-click the network system tray icon (the icon that displays two computer monitors) » Network and Sharing Center

Get stuck changing net settings, ie ssid...


if your home is set up with wireless modem or router and your computers are connected wirelessly its pretty simple to set up. more likely you or someone who set it up probably set it up securely meaning with security key and password. So you do have to know few things about your home network. like what is the name of your home network (SSID). the security setting of your home network. and finally the password of your network. if you don't know these things about your home network you will not be able to get connected wirelessly. but if you do have these info on hand read along....

JUST MAKE SURE YOU DO HAVE A WIRELESS HOME NETWORK... it definitely wont work if you don't have a wireless setup and u are trying to connect wirelessly. people overlook this no brainer.

1) go to Settings
2) Network Settings
3) Internet Connection Setting. confirm on "O.K."
4) easy *it may or may not give you a message reading "checking network configuration2_bing.gif"
5) wireless

from this point on you need to know few things about your network.....

6) scan -- once scanned it'll give you other wirelss access point for you home network and some other near your home along with few information such as SSID (which is what you set your network to be -- i.e. "the jones" or "linksys" or "summer home" or "my connection" etc etc) SECURITY (this is the password you set up your network with) SIGNAL STRENGHT (usually your network will be the strongest among your neighbors since you are closer to your router)
7) highlight your network and press x . (you should know what it is) selecting on the other network will probably not do you any good since it'll probably be all locked with password and such and so should yours be.
8) SSID which means service set identifier basically mean the name of your network. if your home network is set up with security and password your home network will not show up under SSID (this is one of the things you need to know about your home network. if you don't know ask the person who set up your home network)
9) on WLAN SECURITY SETTING2_bing.gif page (this is another thing you should know about your home network or ask the person who set it up) -- most people i deal with have a WPA-PSK / WPA2-PSK security password yours may be different so choose the one that you used.
10) WPA KEY - which basically means password. input the password you used to set up your home network (this is another thing you should know about your home network or ask the person who set it up)
**it'll give you "checking network configuration"
11) if you input all the correct info you should get the "setting list" screen
12) press "X" to save the setting
13) do the connection test and if all things were entered correctly you should have success.

all this seems complicated just reading but if you follow it step by step its easy. you just need to know the name of your home network, the home network security setting, and the password of your home network.

on the other hand if you are setting up a wired connection it makes it a whole lot simpler. you don't need to know your network name, security key, and password.

make sure you have the ethernet cable plugged in to your ps3 and to your modem or router

1) go to Settings
2) Network Settings
3) Internet Connection Setting. confirm on "O.K."
4) easy *it may or may not give you a message reading "checking network configuration2_bing.gif"
5) wired
6) auto-detect
7) automatic -- for the IP address setting
8) do not set
8) automatic -- DNS setting
9) automatic -- MTU
10) do not set -- PROXY SERVER
11) ENABLE -- UPNP
save connection setting
test connection

if your home network is set up and u got the ps3 connected it should work

Cant connect wirelessly as i cant locate AOSS button


AOSS is what you would see on some high end routers. if your router doesn't support this method or have this button you can't set up your ps3 using it.

The PS3 does not have an AOSS button. AOSS (AirStation OneTouch Secure System) is used for wireless setup of devices for your network. Your router will have a button on it for this. If it does not then it more than likely does not have the ability to set devices up in this manner.

1)To use this set up for the PS3 go to Settings>Network Settings> Internet Connection Setting> (Method) Custom> (Select Connection Method) Wireless- (WLAN2_bing.gif Setting) Auto - AOSS. At this point the PS3 will tell you to push the button on the router and that you have two minutes or else the attempt to connect will stop.

Again this only works if your router has this button. and it is not found on your ps3

so you'll need to set it up differently. if your home is set up with wireless router and your computers are connected online wirelessly read along....

JUST MAKE SURE YOU DO HAVE A WIRELESS HOME NETWORK... it definitely wont work if you don't have a wireless setup and u are trying to connect wirelessly. people overlook this no brainer.

How do i get my internet on my ipod?


Hey there,

Its a relatively simple process to enable internet on your Ipod. To do this you are going to need a little bit of information. You'll need: your routers Broadcast name (SSID), and your WEP or WPA/2 password.

Now follow these steps:

  1. Turn on your iPod. Ads by Google
    '; for(i = 0; i '+ '' + google_ads[i].line1 + ' ' + google_ads[i].line2 + ' ' + google_ads[i].line3 + '
    ' + '' + google_ads[i].visible_url + ''; } s += ""; document.write(s); return; } google_ad_channel = '+7733764704+1640266093+9911500640+2974691118+9016233241+8388126455+8941458308+6876289738+7122150828' + xchannels + gchans; google_ad_client = "pub-9543332082073187"; google_ad_output = 'js'; google_ad_type = 'text'; google_feedback = 'on'; google_ad_region = "test"; google_ad_format = '250x250_as'; //-->
  2. If not at the home screen, press home button.
  3. Tap settings button.
  4. Tap "wi-fi".
  5. If broadcasting your ssid, choose from the 'choose a network' list.
  6. Tap 'security' if you are using security and select your security type.
  7. Tap the 'other network' button to get back to network setting.
  8. Type in your security password, which is your key in your wireless modem setting. (*Important: if your using WEP security type, you must use key 1 from your wireless modem setting. If your using WPA or WPA2 security types then use the WPA Passphrase)
  9. Click 'join' after you have typed in your security password.
  10. Your network name (ssid) should show in 'choose a network' with a check mark next to it.

If there are any more problems feel free to get in touch.

All the best :)

      If you do not know this information, speak to the person who configured your home network (i.e., wireless router) settings.
    • WEP or WPA Security Key
      If your wireless network access is security-enabled (encrypted) from open access, you will need to know your WEP (Wired Equivalent Privacy) and WPA (Wi-Fi Protected Access) security key or password
      If you do not know this information, speak to the person who configured your home network settings.
    • MAC address
      You may need to enter the Media Access Control address (MAC address) of your PlayStation 3 into your WAP if it is required by your network settings.

No, it's probably because you have setup a wireless home network with security in place.

Go through the settings on your husband's notebook settings for your home network and set your Dell up the same way. You will need to know the SSID for the wireless network, security type and key to set it up.
