There will be a lapse in network communications as your laptop switches from LAN to Wireless, presumming that you have a Wireless access point in the area with DHCP enabled. If it doesn't work at all when unplugged from the ethernet, you may want to verify that your Wireless is turned on, and connecting to your network using the Wireless Network Configurator included with windows xp and above

Hi im trying to get my wireless to work on my lap tops and i can not get to work on them can you help me plz thankyou


If there is several computers that cannot connect wireless to the internet, you have to check out you wireless router. First of all, you should try to unplug the power for about 10 seconds, then plug it back in and check if it is working. If not, you should try to connect a computer directly to the wireless router, if possible, with a network cable. If that is working, then it is something wrong with the wireless settings, perhaps interference. If that is not working, you should try to connect directly to the internet with a cable, use the cable that is connected to your wireless router. Plug it into the computer instead of to the wireless router. If that is working, there is probably something wrong with your wireless router, and you should get a new one or deliver it to repairing. If the direct connection dont work, you probably would need to call your ISP (internet service provider). I hope this would be of any help for you, and dont be afraid to ask if you need more information.

Do I have to have a wireless card in my lap top to make it work with my router, the lap top is a Hp 7000 and router has wireless set up. I can make the wireless light, light up but I can't get on...


Call up the company that made your computer, and tell them of this error. You are most likely missing the driver for your computer that allows wireless internet. They will tell you exactly what you need.

No Internet via zoom X6 wireless router to desk top, lap top ok.


Access your zoom router by using the laptop which still has access to the router.

Your going to have to open your Wireless Network Connection Status window located under your network settings.

If you see this window your going to left click the (details) button


Now you should see a IP DNS server address
for example: 192.168.1.xxx

Type that address onto the address bar of your web browser.

it should take you to your router setup page.

There you will need to check if the lan port is enabled

Although cable to desktop connects to internet, my router from desktop to laptop via router won't connect.


Desk top to internet is OK.
How about Destop through Router connection to Internet OK?
Assuming you want to connect wireless from Lap top to Network, need to configure correctly for wireless in Router.
If you connect Lap top to router by wire and it didn't work that mean your router is bad.

Cant go wireless


I think the problem is not your laptop configuration. Can you check the setup configuration of the router it's maybe the wireless function is disable. Or try to reset the router to his default configuration. Press the reset bottom of the router for 15 second then try to connect your wireless connection if still not working setup again the router configuration.

thanks

Laptop


the internet cable should be connected to the "Internet" or "WAN" port on the router. Your PC should be connected to one of the regular ports on the back of the router and your laptop can be connected just like the pc, or it can connect wirelessly.

Then you should be able to see the internet from your laptop.
