In this case it is either damaged or not well installed..o not enabled..First go to bios and restore it to the factory defaults by choosing the feature for that and pressing enter ..and save with F10..after that restart and look in the device manager for the wifi card in the network devices...There it should be present by its name and if it is in yellow with a ask sign it means it needs a driver ..Goto the manufacturer driver and download site (support ) ..and download the driver for teh exact model and operating system...and install it ..In this moment activate the wireless from he button if it has one ..and should be working ...if it is not working ..this is a issue with a faulty card and need to be replaced..In case you do not have one ..can find a suitable one ..just use a cheap Usb one from eBay ..

How to go to wifi


Wi-Fi technology enables wireless Internet and network access through public and private hot spots. These hot spots are widely located in homes, restaurants, bookstores, coffee shops and other businesses, so you can keep connected wherever you may travel. To connect to Wi-Fi, you must have an enabled wireless adapter on your computer. Most modern laptops and many desktops have this adapter built into the system, but many lack such capabilities. However, a wireless adapter is easily installed via USB, which allows you to connect to available networks through Windows 7.
Enable your wireless adapter. Most laptops have a hot key labeled with a radio antenna. Hold the "Fn" key and press this key to toggle wireless on or off. Desktops likely have a physical antenna on the back of your computer that is typically always on. If you don't see such a hot key or antenna, you need to acquire a USB wireless adapter. Attach the USB wireless adapter to an available USB port on your computer. Windows 7 will automatically install the necessary drivers for most adapters. If it does not, insert the CD that came with the USB wireless adapter into your drive and choose to install their drivers. Restart your computer if you do not see a wireless icon in your Windows 7 notification area. Click the wireless icon in the Windows 7 notification area and click the network name to which you want to connect. If this is your home network, the correct network will likely be the one with the strongest signal. Click "Connect" and enter the wireless security passphrase, if required. Only secured networks will ask for a passphrase, but some public networks will require browser authentication instead. Open your browser and navigate to any website. If the hot spot requires browser authentication, your website request is redirected to an information page. Follow the instructions on this page to get Wi-Fi. This may entail clicking "Accept," entering a given password or entering a cell phone number. After authentication, attempt your website again to verify accessibility. Hope this helps

SETTING UP A WIRELESS PRINTER WITHOUT A WIRELESS ROUTER - WINDOWS 7
Install Virtual Router first "Turn any Windows 7 or Windows 2008 R2 Computer into a Wifi Hot Spot."
EditByBSEditor: Virtual Router turns any Windows 7 or Windows 2008 R2 Computer into a Wifi Hot SPOT using Windows 7's Wireless Hosted Network (Virtual Wifi) technology.
The Wireless Network Create/shared with Virtual Router uses WPA2 Encryption, and there is not way to turn off that encryption. This is actually a feature of the Wireless Hosted Network API's built into Windows 7 and 2008 R2 to ensure the best security possible.
You can give your "virtual" wireless network any name you want, and also set the password to anything. Just make sure the password is at least 8 characters. http://www.brothersoft.com/virtual-router-327895.html Then install Connectify-Me Connectify is an easy to use software router for Windows 7 computers. After downloading and installing the lightweight application, Connectify utilizes your computers' built in Wi-Fi card to wirelessly share any available Internet connection: a cable modem, a cellular card, or even another Wi-Fi network. Other Wi-Fi enabled devices including laptops, smart phones, music players, and gaming systems can see and join your Connectify hotspot just like any other Wi-Fi access point and are kept safe and secure by password-protected WPA2 Encryption. http://www.connectify.me/ Then reboot computer

I bought a wireless card for my Compaq Presario 5000 Series 5WV280 with Windows ME. It came with a disk, that gave me a program, and say's it recognizes my wireless router and is connected. But when I...


The issue is that you have to install the card and its driver ..Look on that disk ..and see if it has a driver on it ..Run the driver and install teh card ..restart the computer ..and go to network places..In there look for teh wireless connection ..That will be the card you installed .click right on it ..and select either to see networks available ..or to enable first ..It should appear in the task bar in the working programs area in the right tray ..In there click right and see the available networks..identify your router and connect to it ..
In short ..this is a device like any other ..and needs a driver . to work ..after that ..you have nothing to do with the other available connections in the computer but only with the card ..You need a wireless network available ..either a router connected with your ISP ..or another network you share ..with others or a free internet hot spot ..in the area..
When the card is installed and working ..you have to access the networks from it by scanning for them ..

I can't access any wifi network any time i scan in a wireless hot spot


on the front of your laptop is a switch. This switch is for turning wireless on and off for areas like airports or just for security. Frequently, your thumb or whatever clips it and suddenly you have no wireless. Flick the switch to the one where there is computer with brackets on each side. good luck!

Ok i have a linksys wireless-b 2.4ghz and i was woundering if you could use it to pick up from anothe router in the area or like at an internet hot spot or something


you can, but it depends on the wireless standard that the hot spot is using. if the wireless network that you are connecting to only uses a standard, you will not be able to connect. newer wirless routers uses a/b/g and draft n standard for their wireless.
