    i feel like an idiot,my first note book, or lap top/switch was off! thank you

    She probably reloaded the OS to clear out her own stuff before selling it you maybe? If so...you probably still need the factory chipset drivers. Go to the IBM website and put in your model and serial number and get all your latest drivers including your chipset drivers. Also, do you have a switch on the exterior with a light and a little antenna on it? Sometimes laptops have external cut offs for wifi and yours might just be off. We will get this worked out! Keep pluggin at it!

    Are you sure you have wifi and not just bluetooth? Check your system folders hardware listing and see what it says for network cards. Is this laptop new to you? Did you just recently install a new version of the operating system? Anything unusual? Let me know ok? Thanks!

Won'connecct to online sites


You don't mention if you have a 3G tablet, or do you rely on a wi-Fi hotspot on your computer or phone to connect your tablet?
On your tablet, go to settings,on left column, make sure WI-Fi is on, if not, touch it to enable. Your connection should show up on the right side of screen. press and hold the name of your wi-fi network, it will ask you "forget network" or "modify network" Choose modify network and make sure you type your wi-fi password in( do it again if it is already showing up.) I find it easier to use the feature for displaying what you are typing in. Hope this helps. You can also piggy back on a wi-fi hotspot on your smartphone.

MY SONNY ERICSSON X8 WHY I CAN'T GET THRU IN WIFI


To connect to a WLAN via Wi-Fi™:
  1. From the Home screen, find and tap Settings.
  2. Tap Wireless controls > Wi-Fi settings.
  3. Mark the Wi-Fi checkbox. Available Wi-Fi™ networks are displayed in a list under Wi-Fi networks. The available networks may be open or secured. This is indicated by the icon next to the network name.
  4. Tap a Wi-Fi™ network to connect to it. If you are trying to connect to a secured Wi-Fi™ network, you are asked to enter the security key for that Wi-Fi™ network before you can connect to it. The Wi-Fi™ connection is displayed in the status bar once you are connected.
Useful tip:
  • The next time you connect to a Wi-Fi™ network, the phone will remember the security key.
  • To enable Wi-Fi™ network notification of open networks, mark the Network notification checkbox.
  • To connect to another Wi-Fi™ network, just tap another Wi-Fi™ network in the Wi-Fi networks list.
  • To scan for Wi-Fi™ networks manually, press the Menu key and tap Scan. The phone scans for Wi-Fi™ networks and displays them in the Wi-Fi networks section.

You can also try updating your softwares by going to the sites below;

PC Companion,

Start the program and just follow the on-screen instructions.

I hope this will help.

Wi-fi


Please make sure the drivers for your wireless network adapter is installed.
1) go to Device manager - rightl click on my computer and click on properties, select HARDWARE tab then click on Device manager
2) See if the wireless adapter is displayed under Network adapters. If there is an yellow exclamation mark on the Network adapter, it means the drivers for your adapter are not installed.
3) If you find the drivers ok, then make sure that the wireless radio button is turned on. Usually the wireless radio can enabled or disabled from a tray Icon on right side of the system. Most of the system also come with a on/off switch for the wireless radio which is basically on the front side of the laptop.

If the above does not help please revert with the model number of your system and I will try some other steps for you

Is there a wi-fi swtich on thinkpad r52?


IBM load there own set of software on there notebooks which take care of networking lan and wi-fi, I have found if try to use the windows native wireless checker it does not pick the networks up. Try using the IBM program either in the taskbar near the clock or in the start menu.
Also in Device Manager does the wi-fi device show up.
There also may be a light that indicates wi-fi is on on at the front or or above the keyboard if its off let me know.
Other possibility is to uninstall the driver for the wireless device restart and let it reinstall automatically.

1) If you are using the Windows Default Wireless Network Connection. Open the windows where you you will see a list of all wi-fi connections near by your location. On the left panel(Related Tasks) click on "Change Advance Settings" >> Wireless Network Connection Properties >> Click "Wireless Network" Tab >> from the Preferred Networks: list, remove the wi-fi connection you are trying to connect. Once your W-Fi connection settings are removed. You can either add it manually clicking on the Add button and entering all informaiton manually, or from the wi-fi network list click the network name it will ask you to enter the netowkr key....

OR

2) if you are using any other Wi-Fi connection application, like the Intel's, follow the same procedure. delete the settings and try connecting again.

Cannot get ipod touch to connect to wireless network


Many Wi-Fi issues can be resolved by doing the following:
Basic troubleshooting
  • Tap Settings > Wi-Fi and turn Wi-Fi off and then on again.
  • Verify that you are in range of your Wi-Fi router or base station.
  • Confirm that your Wi-Fi router and Cable/DSL modem are connected to power and turned on.
  • Check whether other devices (portable computers, for example) are able to connect to the Wi-Fi network and access the Internet.
