The wireless card in you laptop somehow has connected to an unsecured wireless network instead of your wireless router.
Can you view the wireless network in your area and can you see your wireless router?
If your wireless router is unsecured then anyone can connect into your wireless router and network/Internet connection.

To connect to your wireless router, it needs its wireless settings configured and also need the wireless card in all the laptops and or computers to be configured with the router’s wireless settings. Then the laptops and desktop computers can communicate with your wireless router.

To set-up and secure the wireless router from unauthorized access, follow these steps: -
1. Connect the wireless router to your computer with a LAN cable.
2. Start your browser and enter the router's configuration URL IP address.
3. Enter the router setup, login and password
4. Change the admin password
5. Go to the wireless settings and change the default SSID and turn off SSID broadcast.
6. Setup encryption key the strongest is WPA2 (if not then WPA).
7. For further security measures - turn on MAC address filtering and enter the MAC address of the wireless cards on the computer/s you want to connect to this wireless router.
8. Record the settings you have made and keep it in a safe place and Save the settings.
9. Configure the wireless cards on the computer/s with the SSID and encryption settings of the router.
10. Remove the LAN cable between the router and the computer then the computers should be able to connect to the router wirelessly.

Very, very highly unlikely. It doesn't work like that.
Netgear is probably the manufacturer of your wireless card, and the rubbish software they give you is freaking you out.

Lost internet service on laptop


First, are you wired or wirelessly connected to the router? Is there any computer that is connected to the router aside from the problem one?

If you are wired connected to the router, try connecting the Ethernet cable into different LAN port of the router.

If you are wirelessly connected to the router, try disabling and re-enabling the WiFi of your laptop and try connecting again.

If there's another computer that's connected to the router and it can get online, then the problem is in your computer. Checked the Network properties of the problem computer and make sure that you are getting a valid IP address.

If you have two computers and both of them are not getting online, try connecting first one of the computers directly to the modem. If same problem occur, then contact your ISP.

If you can get online while directly connected to the modem, then turn the Netgear router OFF for about a minute and turn it back on and try again.

Hope this helps and have a good day!

MY WIRELESS MOUSE IS NOT WORKING


If the mouse is only a week or so old, you can still return it or have it replaced under warranty if need be.
First, go into the device manager and uninstall the mouse, then disconnect the receiver unit ad reboot the computer. Then plus the receiver back in and the computer should reinstall the needed controls for it.
if the mouse is not moving at all, check the batteries, they can go dead sitting on shelves.
Last shot is to contact Belkin at 1 800 2BELKIN or email at this address: http://www.belkin.com/support/contact/email/?lid=en and complete the selection.

Please Please Please change your charger right away .. I Got 2 Acer laptop last week and both had same probelm ..if there would be any fluctuations in voltage from your adaptor it will fry up your laptop and you will be in big trouble. Please dont do any experiments on your adapter and change it right away. I Got one laptop last week and customer tried so many angles like you did and fried up his laptop's motheboard already.
Hope you will listen to my suggestion. new charger is not very expensive.

Quick Router setup Wizard


Hi There!!

As is understand you are tyring to setup your wireless router to your laptop. However the cd does not work.

You could try these steps,
There is no problem if you are using XP media center. Please configure your router to the laptop that was last connected to the internet modem. You can also use the ethernet port on the modem directly connected to the WAN port of the wireless router. Then turrn on the Modem and the wireless router. Try to minimize the distance between the wireless router and all the laptops to be in the range of 1-30 meters.

Once you power on the modem, router and laptop, see that all the lights on the router are ON.i.e power, link, wan and lan light the port that is connected to your computer. Please verify your connections if the lights are not ON.

Now connect your laptop to the LAN port of the wireless router and see that your laptop IP address lies in the subnet of 192.168.0.xxx [where xxx is between 2 to 254].This information you can see in your network connections TCP/IP settings. The other best thing that you can do is set your computer IP Address to automatic.

Now open a web browser and type http://192.168.0.1 and press Enter. Once the login page appears enter the username as admin and leave the password as blank click enter.
The click the Advanced button and then Advanced Network. Uncheck the Enable UPnP check box, then click save setting. Now reboot your computer and router.
