If you connect the cord to the laptop and the router it works that means the wired connection of the router is working only the wireless connection is not working.
It might be the issue of the wireless settings of the router or the computer. You will need ot check the wireless settings of the router and the computer.
to check the wireless settings of the router , you will need to open the router set up page. Is there any computer connected to the router ?
if not then you will need to connect the computer to the router and open the router set up page.

Use the network setup wizard to connect to your network, and the internet. Unless you did this already.
You can get the wizard from Control Panel, Network ... , Connect to a Network. If wired you won't need key, it's for wireless only.

Yo did not say what OS, so info is a little generic.
Hope this helps.

My computer connects to my wireless router, but I cannot get on the internet. The "Locked" light is on - I'm not sure if this is the problem .


Thank you for contacting the experts. The first thing to do is to ensure that your router is getting internet connection.

1. Plug the ethernet cord from your modem to your laptop directly by bypassing the router to see if you can get on the internet.

2. If you are able to successfully get on the internet, then plug the cord from the modem back into the correct port on the router. Make sure you have the cord plugged into the port that says "internet".

3. Once that is plugged in correctly, depending on if you are using DSL (phone company), you will need to log into the router to change the password/user ID settings. If you are using high speed (cable company), then you will not need to put in a user id/password unless you are setting up security.

4. Power cycle your router and modem simulatneously to make sure that the router picks up the modem connection and the modem picks up the router.

I hope this was helpful and thank you for contacting the experts.

Internet dose not work


This model Dell laptop used a PCMCia card as a network adapter, which may or may not be installed in the slots on the side of the laptop. If one is installed you may need the dongle (an adapter that plugs into the card and ends in a standard network jack)

Wireless Internet wont work unless I plug in a wire


QuickSet utility Wireless options can cause these issues.

There is a setting to always deactivate on battery. Make sure this is not set up. The correct setting would be Always active on battery or Always On, or no power saving options for Wi-Fi. Depending on the version of QuickSet which you have.

Conneting ps3 online through laptop using o2 broadband


Are you connecting wirelessly or with a cord? if wireless, you need to make sure that you are selecting the same security setting as the connection that you pick in 'network settings'. If the option is 'none', then you need not worry about a password. however if it has a password, then you need to make sure that you type that password in (case sensitive). I had the same problem and this worked for me. hope this helps...please rate if it does....thanks. also, you shouldn't have to do anything with your laptop at all. try to use a direct line from your modem if you are using an ethernet cord.

My internet won't work on my new laptop.


First turn off you laptop. Second, go to your comcast cable modem unplug it from the wall and wait about 3mins. Now plug the comcast modem back it and wait for all the lights to come back (will take about 2-3mins). Now plug the yellow ethernet cable into your laptop if its not already and turn your laptop on. You should now have internet.

Also if you using a Comcast Surf Board modem be mindful of the standby button on top of the modem. You can tell your in standby mode if the standby light (bottom light) is amber. If it is press the standby button once to get out of standby mode.

hope that helps
