How to Connect a Laptop to a Wireless Router Using a Windows Operating System
Follow the router's manual to set up the router and its Internet connection , which will probably require connecting a wired client to the router. Once the wireless router is set up, the wired connection is no longer necessary. However, it's best to leave the wired client connected if it's a separate computer from that on which you're going to set up WiFi. If something goes wrong, you can access the administration interface again.
Gather information from the setup process. In order to set up the wireless client, you will need to know the service set identifier (SSID), the Wireless Encryption Protocol (WEP) key and the channel and mode.
Boot up the laptop and plug in the WiFi card. This will not be necessary if your laptop has an integrated WiFi card.
Install any drivers needed to use the WiFi card. Insert the disc that came with the WiFi card and follow the on-screen installation process. Most discs will trigger a new hardware wizard that makes installation extremely simple.
Double-click on the "WiFi Connection" icon. It can be found in the system tray at the bottom of the laptop screen.
Click on "Properties."
Select the "Wireless Networks" tab.
Use the "Add" button at the bottom of the dialog if your WiFi network isn't in the "Available Networks" section.
Click on "Configure" when you see your network's SSID in the "Available Networks."
Enter your network's SSID and WEP key.
Click on "Start," then choose "Connect To" and "Wireless Network Connection." Your computer should now be able to access the WiFi network. If the WiFi network is connected to the Internet, it should also be able to connect to the Internet.

Can not connect to internet


People often get confused about how to connect their netbooks (or laptops) to the internet. It's the same for cheap netbooks or expensive netbooks - you can connect pretty much all netbooks to the internet in four ways.... And it's really easy once you get past the jargon.
1 - Wired netbook connection using your home ISP
The first way, and one I use a lot, is just plug your netbook into your router at home, using the netbook's Ethernet port and the cable supplied with your router.
This way works every time, gives a fast and secure connection, but means that you need to use your netbook within cable distance of your router. Any internet usage will be part of your normal broadband usage with your home ISP, but isn't the point of netbooks that you can be mobile with them? Who wants to have nice new netbooks tied up by a cable?



2 - Wireless netbook connection using your home ISP
Another way to get online with netbooks if you're at home is to connect wirelessly to your home router.
It's a very easy process - just turn the netbook on and it will seek out your router. You get a fast connection, good security (if you tell your router to use WPA encryption) and it will usually work anywhere in your house or garden. Several netbooks, laptops or other computers can use your internet connection this way from the same router, so your family and friends can use their netbooks at the same time.
3 - wifi netbook connection out and about

A really cheap way to get online when you're out and about is wifi. Many busy locations - pubs, hotels, shopping malls - have "wifi hotspots" which are simply powerful wireless routers that you can use to connect your netbooks wirelessly to the net.
Some are free and can be used by any computers that are nearby. Others are owned by telecomms operators like BT Openzone or mycloud and you need to pay to use them. Monthly subscriptions or pay as you go are available. So are these free and cheap choices ideal for using with cheap netboks?
For anything other than general browsing on netbooks, beware of wifi. The free ones have no security at all, and the others have password protection, but the data you send and receive is not encrypted. This means anyone in the vicinity could snoop and listen in on what you were doing. I don't bother with wifi for this reason.
See our separate feature on wifi for more about this.
4 - Your 3G netbook connection - at home or away.

netbooks.org.uk/wp-content/uploads/g3-dongle-300x164.jpg" width=240 height=131>

netbook dongle for 3G wireless internet

The final way to connect netbooks to the net - (and yes there are only four ways - I told you it was easy) is using the latest mobile phone network - 3G short for Third Generation. Just like a mobile phone, you can pay as you go or take out a monthly subscription with one of the phone companies to suit your needs. Then, using a little device like a USB stick called a USB modem, or a "dongle" plugged into your netbook, you can connect quickly and securely to the net in most of the UK and lots of places overseas. Some netbooks even have a slot to put your SIM card straight in
If you can use a mobile phone where you are, you can probably connect to the internet using 3G. Many people use 3G to connect netbooks to the net even at home and don't bother with a normal ISP.

Your pc could have a phone line input for built in modem DO NOT use that.
Use the lan inlet connector.When you connect the lan cable it should gain access at once.
Unless your connection is protected by a code.
If you have a wire less connection its probably protected with a code when you set the router up.
You have to enter the code to gain access to your network.

Here is a link that shows you how to repair the connection:

And if you have wire less:

Good luck.

My acer aspire one wont connect to internet. it says it is connected to wireless, and i have wired it to modem but the problem still persists. please help.


Based on your description, the following is assumed.
1. The service to your Internet Service Provider is through a cable or DSL modem.
2. Internet service was initially set-up with your netbook directly connected to the modem.
3. A wireless router was since added and is using the direct wired connection to the modem.
4. The netbook is connected to the wireless access point being provided by the router.
5. The netbook says it is connected to the wireless access point but still no internet access.
The problem is likely due to the modem capturing the MAC address of the netbook when access to the internet servce was initially set up using the netbook directly connected to the modem and now the modem will only allow access with the netbook directly connected to it. You can check this out by reconnecting the netbook directly to the modem. It may be possible to "flush" the captured MAC by unplugging the AC power to the modem, waiting a few minutes and then powering back up with the router connected in place of the netbook. To make it easier, you may want connect your netbook directly to the router's LAN side to check if you now have internet access through the router. If you still don't have internet access, you will need to use your netbook to log onto the router to clone your netbook's MAC address for the router's WAN connection. The router's user guide/manual has directions on logging in and doing the MAC address clone. It will also have an explanation as to what is a MAC address.

We have new netbook and we are connect to a wireless internet but my netbook will not connect to the internet.


First, on the left side of the main screen, you will see an icon that says "WI-FI Power". That's the switch to turn it on. When you click it, a little box will appear that says "turn on" when it's off and "turn off" when it's on.

But maybe you hadn't fully set machine up yet.

Try checking the following to see if any of these steps were missed.

On a "hooked up" computer, Google "digital gadgets.com". There find "Sylvania Products". Then click on "7 inch netbook support" and follow directions inputing to the 7" netbook as you go.

For item # 4, you find your "hot spot" name (on the 7" netbook) and click "connect".


For item # 5, you may have to call your Internet Service Provider (Charter, AT&T or whoever you pay for your internet) in order to get your "network key" fill that in (on the 7" netbook) and then click "OK".

Next (on the 7" netbook) be sure you go to "Start", "Settings", "Control Panel", "Internet Options", "General" and complete "user agent (requires browser restart" by selecting:
"Default (same as windows XP)" or
"Same As Pocket PC" or
"Windows CE".

I selected "default" and was off and running.

Do i need to buy a external modem for my netbook to go online


Hello,

First you need to check if your netbook has a wireless switch, it used to be in front or by the side or in front of the laptop, if it does, all you need to do is to turn it on, and if there is a wireless network around, then you will be able to connect to the internet.

You can also the control panel to see if the netbook has a wireless switch and where it is located on the netbook, and that will simply tell if you do have wireless service on your netbook.

From the sides of the netbook, there is an internet port, if there is no wireless switch, then you can connect any local connection available in the internet port that is by the side of the netbook.

But you need to ensure there is a local connection somewhere, and the router is working correctly, then you can use the local cable connection, but if there is none, then you will have to buy an external modem for the netbook to go online.

I hope this helps.

I have an Acer aspire one netbook and the wifi connects with my router no problem, but when i try to type in any website, it says: the adress is not valid. I know it is not my router or my internet...


Open network connections and see if the internet connection is enabled. If not, right click and choose enable. If this is the first time you've tried connecting to internet with Acer, then you can run through the internet connection wizard to set things up.
