    I am able to connect to any wireless router that my network finds but I cannot connect to the internet. My other computer will connect to both the router and the internet so it has to be a software problem in my first computer. I have tried unplugging and resetting everything to no avail. I also cannot connect to the internet via a wired connection even though it detects that I am wired in. The computer(Thinkpad) worked fine last night. I tried disabling the Firewall and other software that might conflict but nothing works. I have not installed any new hardware or software in months. For some reason it just stopped connecting to the internet. I have run both installed virus detection software and an internet scan from Trend Micro, nothing was detected. Any suggestions? The only option I have is to do a complete systems restore.

Need more information to help you.

1. If not using the router at all is there connection to the internet??

2. When working woth a utp cable between computer an router is there internet connection??

Don't forgett getting connection with your wireless network is not the same as gettin connected with the internet.

Suggestion: Clone your computer MAC address in the router.

How do I connect my Action tec router V1000H to other computers to be able to print to ne printer. Iam running widnows 7

1)make sure that the printer is capable to be a network printer.

2) make sure that your able to print with main computer on the network.

3) make sure that the printer was able to detect the network via wireless connection ( if the printer have wireless capability) ( if not then it should be connected with a ETHERNET cable directly to your router)

4) make sure that the other computer already have the driver of the printer.

try using this first and if this will not work try sending me a message so that i can give you some more steps.

Is it posible to concect aspire 4720z with wi fi internet

Ok notebook seam to be able to connect via wifi ...For this the wireless card have to be installed with the proper driver suitable with the operation system you use...for to be able to catch a wireless network ...or a hot spot..
A hot spot is a free internet wireless transmitting ..without security protection ...and usually find in public places like office buildings ..public places like official buildings...or parks ..
and for to have your own wireless network you need a wireless router ..and to connect it to the Lan or DSL..connection at home..(make a search on google how to connect and set router wireless)
If one of these 2 are available just open the wireless interface of the wifi card (be sure is enabled) ...and reset and choose to scan for networks will detect all networks in the area..and with specification if it is protected or free..just pick a free one ..or your own by name ..and click connect ...That' s can make several connection ..and store them in memory and set to automatically detect and connect to them ..
In what regards routers..there are relatively cheap ...about 30 dollars..and if you set -up one at your cable or modem connection at will end up ..with 4 lan cable ports ...and with the wireless broadcast in about 100m range..This can be secured in more than one form mac address selection .some of the encryption available on its you will end up with a network that will allow to connect with a password.. ..
This is about what you need to know .before making one ..or trying to connect to a free hot spot ..
Please do not forget to rate me ..Have a great day !

Unable to acces the ap with some network cards

Can your laptor detect any other networks? If not make sure that your wireless switch is turned on.
If wireless switch is turned on and laptop detects other networks then your router is set not to transmit ssid (check router manual on how to configure SSID transmission mode).

Iam trying to connect my laptop to the innet. i have wrt54g router.

Hi jjroyc

Let's see if we can get your laptop connected to the Internet.

First, I have some questions and a few instructions for you.

(01) Is this a new (to you) router?

(02) Do you already have one or more computers connecting successfully to the Internet using this router?

(03) If yes, are any of them connecting wirelessly?

(04) Have you recently (at another location for example) successfully connected this laptop to the Internet? If so, did you connect it "wired" or "wirelessly".

(05) Are you trying to connect your laptop to your router "wirelessly" or "wired"?

(06) If you are trying to connect the laptop wirelessly, turn off your laptop's wireless radio and connect the laptop to the router "wired" instead (using an "Ethernet Patch Cable"). Once we've established that the laptop is capable of connecting to the Internet via the simpler "wired" connection, then we'll move on to the more complex wireless connection.

(07) Please, go HERE to download the manual for your particular router. You will need to determine the version number of the WRT54G model 1st. There are instructions there that will guide you through this.
