I have been trying all morning to get my Toshiba laptop connected to the internet but to no avail. I am with BT who finally informed me that there may be something wrong with the wireless network adaptor...


1. I see that you have a wireless B adapter. Does your wife's computer have a Wireless B adapter also?

2. If ur wife's laptop does not have a wireless B but has a wireless G then we are closer to resolving the problem

3. It's now time to access the wireless router to see if it is allowing access from wireless B client adapters OR only G.

4. If it is set to G only, then you need to change it to B+G

5. If it is already set to B+G, then we need to check the security settings on the AccessPoint

6. If the security settings need for u to register the MAC address of your card in addition to entering a password then u'd have to acquire the MAC address of ur card and add it to the allow list.

To get MAC ADDRESS:
Go to the command prompt
Type ipconfig /all (then press enter)

My laptop has vista and wont connect wireless to my D-Link 150 DIR-600 Router after setting it up. It says that my adapter doesnt match the network. What do i have to do? do i need an upgrade?


When you configure the D-Link router's wireless settings eg. Infrastructure mode, SSID, encryption etc. then the wireless adapter in the laptop needs to be configured with the D-Link's wireless settings so these devices can communicate with each other.
For details on securing and configuring your wireless network as well as configuring the wireless adapter in the laptop, please click in this link and follow my instructions :-

It appears the wireless adapter is not working properly or is not configured with the wireless router's settings Ie. the SSID, and encryption etc.
First install the latest wireless adapter driver.
Next configure the wireless adapter with the wireless router's settings.
It needs to be the same as the wireless settings in the laptops.
If you need further help, please contact me.

The WPA key is the encryption key that is configured in the router's wireless settings and the wireless cards in the laptop and desktop needs to be configured with this encryption setting to allow the laptop and desktop computer to communicate with the router.
You can view the encryption settings in the router's wireless settings or on the laptop's wireless card settings and then apply these encryption settings to the desktop's wireless card (ie. the SSID and the WPA encryption).

Brought a new laptop with wireless installed have a philips SNB5600 but have lost the security key how can i get the code


go to the wireless access point admin settings (not on your wireless adapter on your laptop). then check wireless security settings. if you see something there such as security key, that is the security key that you need to set up on your laptop. if security key is not visible, try to see if there is an option there which says unmask to show the security key, then copy it to your laptop. if all else fails, change the security key in the wireless access point and change all the wireless adapters that connect to it accordingly to the new security key you set it up.

New netgear adapter on my laptop & can't get on the internt


I think you need to set up you home wireless network on your laptop again. I asume you set it up with your first adapter, but you need to set it up for the new adapter. If this doesn't help, include OS type on laptop. Then I can give a better solution.
