Start-NETWORK CONNECTIONS-right click wifi icon-click properties-click ENABLE. If DISABLE showing, click REPAIR. Hope this helps. The other possibility is no wifi service is in range. Are you able to "see" any AP's in range? Right click the wifi icon, Then click VIEW AVAILABLE WIRELESS NETWORKS. When popup is displayed, do the displayed networks have the lock symbol indicated? These are encrypted networks, and you either need the encryption key, or find an open AP. Hope this helps.

MAC address need not be changed to connect to internet, unless the cable modem you have is configured in such a way that it only connects to a particular MAC address.
The solution is to change the settings in the cable modem or the router you have.
Please specify the following details
1. if you have windows click on start and click on run(for xp) and type cmd and hit enter
2. type ipconfig and hit enter
3. Find out what is the IP address specified there it should be in the format - 192.x.x.x
4. Note down the address against default gateway
Do the same thing for both the computer and then let us know so that we can narrow down the issue and suggest a better solution
did you reinstalled windows? usually that message appear when u don-t have the drivers installed for your network cards. So right click my computer go proprieties ---> device manager ----> and there check if u have network installed.
1) can you still connect to the internet despite the error? 2) what operating system are you running (Windows, Mac, Linux) 2a) what version, (e.g. windows xp, windows vista) 3) were you ever able to connect to the internet with this computer?
You can't zoom the Internet, it's a big as it's going to get :-) ha ha ha.
I usually set "Let Windows Manage my wireless connection" and use that on after-market wireless adaptors. This can also be done, maybe temporarily (?), by enabling:
Services > Wireless Zero Configuration Service
* You might try to uninstall the software ... then read very carefully the instructions that came with it. I say that because some hardware requires the software to be installed first! Others require the hardware first then the software. If you break the rules you COULD end up with problems.
Usually there's somewhere in the software of the adaptor to set it to let Windows (Wireless Zero Config) to manage it. This may not be the same in Windows Vista or Windows 7. Haven't tried yet ...
well!! I have an answer for you.your comp is loosing the IP address.
goto start - programmes - accessories - dos prompt.
type ipconfig.you`ll get ip address,subnet mask,default gateway.copy it.
goto network and sharing center in vista and network connection under control panel in XP,IN Vista,click on view status,goto properties and double click on internet protocol(tcp/ip) or IPv4In XP,right click wireless network connection and goto properties and double click on internet protocol(tcp/ip).type in the IP address,subnet mask,default gateway.in DNS server address type the default gateway in primary DNS and in secondary 18.104.22.168.
your connection won`t drop after this.
Vista isn't particularly good at telling you exactly WHY despite its pretty "diagnostics".
First try turning any encryption/security off on your router and see if you can connect. If you still can't connect with no encryption, uninstall the device and reinstall it. If you can connect, then the problem is with the encryption. Make a careful note of exactly what settings your router is using and make sure you give them fully to Vista.
Hello, It sounds to me like there is a conflict between the Kaskersky and Vista. I'd un-install and use Avast but AVG is a Good Anti-virus also. Vista is sometimes a nightmare. I have problems with certain flash-drives which will not work in Vista. They freeze up the computer. It's Vista. Hope this helps. Good luck.
