An internal wireless card lets you access the Internet and a home or corporate computer network without the hassle of using an Ethernet or other type of network connection.

The wireless card grabs the communication signal flowing throughout the air and processes the signal through your Gateway PC's Windows operating system so you can access websites, email and related Internet-based services.

But like other devices in your computer, you must turn on the internal wireless card in your Gateway PC before using it.

Turn on your computer, if it is off.

Press and hold the "Fn" key on your computer's keyboard.
Press the "F2" key in the upper row of keys on your keyboard.

The wireless Internet card's connection utility will start searching for a wireless signal.
Connecting to a Signal

Click "Start," "Connect To."
If your Gateway PC is running Windows 7, click on the Windows symbol on the taskbar. Click "Control Panel," "Network and Internet," "View network status and tasks."

Click on the wireless connection you want to connect to.

If using Windows 7, click on "Connect to a network," then click on the wireless connection you want to connect to.

Click "Connect." Enter the wireless connection's network password (SSID), if prompted. Click "Next."

Click "Connect Anyway," if prompted with a message about the connection not being secure.

Click "Close." Open your Gateway PC's Internet browser or email application to start using the Internet connection.

Networking Your Computer

Click start control panel network connections this may vary depending on your operating system look for local area connection if you see a red x or a yellow exclamation or question mark!?
you will need to update or install the driver or it could be firewalled.

Make sure your antivirus program is not blocking the internet connection.

If you are trying to connect through a modem/router you it should have come with a disk then
you might have to connect the usb lead to your modem to get a connection then

Click start control panel administration tools computer management device manager scroll to network adapters should see a yellow question ? exclamationmark! or a red Xright click install drivers.

The driver might be on the disc supplied by your ISP internet service provider
or the motherboard disc

You only need to check the BIOS if you cant install the driver or you could download one

Can't connect to the internet through wireless on my daughter's acer laptop


Your daughter's wireless card in her laptop needs to be configured with the router's wireless settings eg. the SSID and encryption key
The encryption key in your wireless router, without this key the wireless router won't allow the laptop to connect to this wireless router.
The WEP, WPA, WPA2 encryption key is in your router's wireless settings. Log into your router and got to the wireless settings, you will need to get the SSID and the encryption key. Then go to your laptop's wireless card and configure it with the router's SSID and encryption key, so it will then connect to the wireless router and the Internet.

To secure your wireless network from unauthorized access,please click on this link and follow my instructions :-http://www.fixya.com/support/r3559128-wireless_router_security

Cant find the switch on my laptop to make me wireless


I can't find any info about that laptop on the internet. If you have xp, go to start menu, control panel, network connections and see if you have a wireless internet connection in there. If not, you do not have a wireless card in your laptop. If you do have that connection, right click to enable it.
Please rate, thanks!

Reinstall windows xp to laptop now cant connect to the internet


Hi there.
You may have to use a keyboard toggle command, hold down Fn and if you can see a wireless icon on one of the F keys press it.
Hopefully the wireless will activate and connect.
If you can't see the keys post back with the make and model of the laptop.

Good luck and thanks for using Fixya!!

Cant install new hard drive


Usually, this issue is caused by pressing F12 multiple times to access the 1 time boot menu.  This can cause the keyboard buffer to fill up and the keyboard will not respond.  Resolution:  Press F12 ONLY one time at boot.
If this is not the issue, then the other main cause is having an INTERNET keyboard that has alternate Function Key functions (These will be listed on the front edge of the Function keys and there will be an extra key called an F-Lock) This type of keyboard has the ALTERNATE function of the F-Keys enabled by default, you need to press the F-Lock key to enable the normal F-Key function.
