In newer laptops, turning on the WAN (wifi) radio receiver is done via keyboard key combination.

Look closely at the function keys. Do you see any wifi radio icon printed in orange or any color that is not similar to the normal key color? In some model, a wifi icon (looks like a wave like ")))" is in F2. Now pressing FN+F2 turns the wifi ON. Press and hold down the FN key and press F2 (or the key where the wifi icon is printed) to turn on your WAN.

Wireless not working on acer aspire 5551a


Connect to internet using ethernet cable and update wifi driver from makers site, if this does not work then buy a usb wifi adapter off ebay or from a local store, put it into usb port and install the driver from the disc supplied with the adapter and off you go (far cheaper than replacing the wifi card)

Theencryption key secures your data from unauthorized access. The router's password is a Passphrase or the WEP or WPA orWPA2 encryption key. The Passphrase generates the WEP or WPA or WPA2 encryptionkey and this is in the router's wireless settings. To connect to your wireless router, configure the router'swireless settings ie SSID, plus the WPAor WPA2 encryption key and then configure wireless cards in the laptops and orcomputers with these router's wireless settings. Then the laptops and desktopcomputers can communicate with your wireless router.

How do you hook up a dlink router to a telus modem, the WLAN connection won't work.


Hello,


Newer telus modems tend to be wireless.
If your telus modem is wireless, then you want to forget the DIR-625 all together and simply connect your computers to the telus modem.

If you have a standard telus modem, you will want to connect a LAN cable from the modem to the WAN port on the router and then connect your devices to the router.

Please come back and vote or leave some feedback, it will let me know whether it helped so I can improve and it will encourage me to keep on helping.

Thanks,

Pat

Rangemax-internet only works when comp directly connected via LAN


it sounds like you have the wireless connection to the WAN disabled. Go through the wireless settings on the router and check to make sure it's not being blocked from the WAN/Internet connection.

G wireless router


You should disable the WAN miniport pppoe. SSID is the wireless network name or the signal's name coming from your wireless router.

After disabling the wan miniport, Right-click on Wireless Network Connection > View Available Wireless Network. If you see several networks listed, highlight your wireless network and click Connect. That should do it.

Airplus xtreme g doesn't work


I have have this happen before with D-Link routers. Check your ac adaptor for power. If there is power to the adaptor, then the power supply in the router is gone and needs to be replaced.

Mine blew up unexpectedly and I replaced it with a linksys.
