It's more a browser issue, actually..

if you're on a wired connection or wireless, your laptop will let you know. Check in bottom of tray, to see that you're connected..

if so, go to browser(IE) and check Internet options/settings to ensure that you have active connections with those network options.

get updated printer drivers here, just in case

Yes, the mouse most likely uses Bluetooth to communicate with your laptop and is independent of your wired/wireless connection to the internet. The mouse should have come with an adapter that plugs into one of your USB ports. Plug it in and once the drivers load (automatically), your new wireless mouse should be working!

I have a Dell Dimension 3000 desktop, around 5-6 years old. It is connected to the internet through a cable modem then through a wireless router, but it is connected with a LAN line. If I try to connect to...


Sounds like the actual ethernet adaptor (hardware) may be out but first I would run a really good spyware and see if it is infected. This one works really great (see link at bottom) although, it is not free but you can download, installl and it will run scan and tell you if you have malware (which is why it will not connect). It only cost 30 bucks to purchase which is reasonable to take off the malware and get back online. Beats a techs fee.

If there is no sign of malware, then the hardware is out and you will need to replace. These can be purchased at Wal-mart for under 60 bucks. Hope this helps!

Laptop Cannot Find Home Wireless Network


Try logging into the router with your desktop hard-wired and find the 25-digit passcode and use that to log on to the wireless network with the laptop. If not, then check if connection is good by hard-wiring the router to the laptop. Let me know what happens or if you have solved the problem.

I don't see why not..
are you trying to hook up both computers to your linksys router?
if you have 3 computers now... I'm assuming your old pc was connected directly to the router, your laptop was connected wirelessly and now you have a brand new computer that you also want to connect to the internet using your lynksis router.. you should have not problems doing it, wirelessly or using a wire...as long as your router has ports avaliable...

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.

Using my laptop


Hi,
So let me make this clear. you want to be able to connect to the internet wirelessly with your laptop instead of having a cable plugged in. if so, what you need is a wireless router. you can purchase a netgear WGT624 connect that to your DSL modem and configure your laptop to connect wirelessly. there should be an icon on the lower right hand corner to configure your wireless on laptop. its easy. if your having a hard time doing that call dell at 800-8228965.

hope this helps.

thanks.
