If the computer is able to see wireless signals but is unable to connect, it is most likely an issue with the card, which unfortunately is internal. It could just be the driver - go to, punch in your service tag and download the wireless driver for your PC and install it. If that does not work, reboot your wireless router. If that still does not work, it's the hardware and cheapest option is to a get USB wifi adapter.

You have to install the WiFi card with an Installer before it is recognized by device manager... go to the link below, and download the WiFi driver and install as Administrator. You will need to know your exact model number to do so.. Do NOT just get a WiFi driver that will NOT work, you must get installer version.

First, make sire the switch is in the right position...most of the the time when the switch is on the fron tof the laptop, "on" is to the right. If the switch is in the "on" position, then it is possible that the driver has gotten corrupt or is somehow missing. Try first to update the driver. Go to the control panel > Device Manager (in XP it is in System and then under hardware) scroll down the device manager and click on the + sign by the network adapters. Right click on the wireless adapter and choose update driver. Let windows go through the update and reboot, if this doesn't work, go back to the network adapters and this time right click on wireless adapter and choose uninstall. Reboot and when windows starts, it will recognise the hardware and install the appopriate driver for it. It would be better if you were connected to the internet by an ethernet cable for this, that way if the wireless is down, windows can search online through the ethernet cable and get a fresh driver....but if not it isn't totally necessary.

Internet wont connect

Are you using Vista, XP, Linux?

  1. Check the Device Manager
  2. Click Start
  3. Right click My Computer
  4. Select Manage
  5. Click Device Manager
If you see anything with a yellow question mark then you may need to update the driver for it.

If there is nothing missing a driver then we'll move on.

If you're running Vista I have seen 4-5 cases personally where this occurred for no reason and I could not get it to connect to ANY network.

  1. Click on the wireless icon in the system tray
  2. If it say that you are connected but with limited access
  3. or local access only
  4. or no internet
This is the same problem I had people bring in on their laptops, the only thing that I could do was to reinstall Windows, I tried updating drivers but nothing worked.

But first you should try to update the driver, but you'll probably have to reinstall Windows.
