Contact your internet supplier how can help with a lot of the sercurity problems.also your internet setup might be wrong for wireless as it may be only set for your broadband.you can check by checking start,control panel,internet options,connections,if broadband there should be nothing in box,if is remove,next press lan settings and see if the automatic detect settings box is ticked.next close, go back to internet options in the control panel, select security,click on local intranet and put a tick in the box.(enable protection mode).click on trusted sites and tick box(enable protection sites)check the restricted site and do the same. do this before contacting supplier. then go back to start,control panel and look for sercurity center this looks like a shield,double click , open and check all sercurity features are switched on.go back to start.and try internet explorer.

How do I make my iPod Touch Connect to an Unsecure Network


<p>Unsecured wireless Internet networks are available in many cafes and public spaces. An unsecured network is a wireless Internet connection that does not require a password. Use your iPod Touch Wi-Fi capability to connect to these networks and the Internet. Although excellent for surfing and email, avoid carrying out banking or financial information into an unsecured network, because there is a possibility that the signal is intercepted. <br /> <p><br /> <p>1. Open the Settings menu of your iPod Touch. It is the gray gear icon on the home screen. <br /> <p><br /> <p>2. Tap "WiFi" and move it to "On" if needed. If your Wi-Fi is already activated, you will see a pop-up asking if you have the unsecured network. Some companies, like Starbucks, have a "Log In" screen appears automatically. <br /> <p><br /> <p>3. Click "Yes" or "Join" for the network to automatically connect when prompted. The text may vary depending on the company, and you may need to read and agree to the terms and conditions statement. If no login screen appears, wait until you play for scanning available Wi-Fi signals. The list is displayed. <br /> <p><br /> <p>4. Select the network name you want to join the list. An unsecured network has a password, so you will not be asked to give. <br /> <p><br /> <p>5. Click on "automatic network in the future" when asked if you want to do. <br /> <p><br /> <p>6. Wait until the light of the Wi-Fi indicator in the upper left corner of the touch. This indicates that you are online and ready to ride. <br />

Wifi wont connect and some other


well, the signal, may be good, but if theirs a huge amount of people on the same acess point, things get messy. if u have alot of people using the same network, the internet becomes laggy, and even if u have a good signal, the internet can be very laggy, and lose connection alot, it depends on the amount of people using the same network, so at home u have only u and ur family connected, at school more people might be connected to the network than at home.

I have an acer extensa 5620z and netgear dg834v5 modem/router. I can connect via ethernet, but even though i have set the router without security, the laptop detects the wireless network, but won't...


This is worked for me on Vista:
1. Goto Network and Sharing Center.
2. Click on your Wireless Connection "View Status".
3. Click on Propertes.
4. Uncheck the option that says "Internet Protocol Version 6"

When I did this, my wireless began working again.

Cannot click ''Connect'' to join Wi-Fi network


This is because it is remembering the "Old" settings which must have been saved as default. What you should do is run the Connect to Internet again, this will reset the network settings and connect. Also make sure to go into networking and ensure the settings are right in there regarding sharing, permissions etc, etc.

Laptop stopped connecting via wifi to home network.


The wireless settings in the Belkin has been setup with encryption.
You can restore the Belkin back to the factory default by powering up the Belkin and press the RESET button for 7 secs.
It is not wise to leave your wireless router unsecured, anyone can access your network and Internet connection and use up your allocated download limit. Once you exceed your download limit you could be slug with addition charges - this depends upon your contract with your ISP.

I have an excellent connection to city wifi but no web page.


Windows WiFi Fix,
Windows Zero Wireless Configuration is one of the best programs to run a WiFi in Windows XP or Vista. Most of the other software packages that come with the different adapters have been poor at best in keeping a connection through Windows. Here is the best guide to get you back up and connected.
Windows XP:
Click Start
Right click on My Computer
When a window pops up click on properties
Click on the Hardware tab
Click Device Manager
Click the [+] next to Network Adapters
Find your wireless card and right click on it.
Click Disable
Windows may warn you that disabling the device may make it stop functioning.
Continue disabling the device.
Wait 30 seconds or so.
Right click on your wireless again and click Enable.
Exit the device manager.
Reconnect to your router.
You should now be able to connect to the internet.

Windows Vista:

Click Start Logo
Right Click Computer
Click Device Manager
Windows will ask you about opening Device Manager Click Continue
Click the [+] next to Network Adapters
Find your wireless card and right click on it.
Click Disable
Windows may warn you that disabling the device may make it stop functioning.
Continue disabling the device.
Wait 30 seconds or so.
Right click on your wireless again and click Enable.
Exit the device manager.
Reconnect to your router.
You should now be able to connect to the internet.

Excellent Wireless Network Connection, cannot access internet


The unsecure public network nay be using mac address filtering. In this case, the network will show as being unsecured, and will even allow you to connect in some cases, but then will not allow you to surf once connected.

New laptop using belkin n wireless router using McAfee security


An unsecure network just means that other people can "piggyback" on your wireless connection. It's not dangerous. In fact, I'm sitting in a place with my laptop right now, piggybacking on a signal.

The only possible downside is that if too many people ride on your signal for free, your connection could slow down. If you want help securing your router, I'll be glad to walk you through it.
