Cant find where to get wireless internet on my pcv-w1


Not all laptop computers have built-in wireless capability,
but all the newest ones do.

You may need to purchase either a PCMCIA or a USB wireless-adapter, and insert the adapter into the appropriate slot, to add wireless capability.

Reinstall windows xp to laptop now cant connect to the internet


Hi there.
You may have to use a keyboard toggle command, hold down Fn and if you can see a wireless icon on one of the F keys press it.
Hopefully the wireless will activate and connect.
If you can't see the keys post back with the make and model of the laptop.

Good luck and thanks for using Fixya!!

I CANT GET MY LAPTOP TO WORK WITHOUT THE ETHERNET CABLE IN?


Hi,

When was the last time using your internet connection wirelessly? If this is the first time you will use your wireless internet. You may need to check it with your internet service provider or you may check it with your wireless modem (router) manufacturer.

Using wireless internet connection, you will need to configure the settings in the wireless modem (router). you will need to get an admin password and username.

If you were able to connect to the internet wirelessly, check if you wireless icon (WIFI) on your laptop is on.

Keep me posted.

Thanks.

I have wireless internet at my house but i cant get a signal from my laptop


Most laptops have a small switch or a function key option to disable the wireless radio. Try looking around the edges of the laptop for the switch usually next to the wireless antenna symbol.

We are tring to connect to a wireless internet connection and we cant. it says we need to turn on the wireless networking radio? how do we do that? we have a toshiba satellite laptop. thanks


There should be a wireless button or switch on the perimeter of the laptop. Either this or a function key on your keyboard that you need to depress while clicking another key that has a wireless picture icon on it.

If you hit the right switch you should get some kind of notification either on the display or with the enabling of a new wireless light on the laptop.

I cant get my internet on me vista laptop to work. i have two wire computers and one wireless and the second wire computer makes the laptops internet shut down and when the laptops internet works the wire...


Ok here is the big question what make and model is your router. Anything less than an "n" class router is going to gang up on itself. Also depending on your internet service provider or "isp" and the speed that they provide makes a difference. I find that it is the lower grade g-class routers that have the most trouble. Take care...Be mucho blessed...Mark
