Problem with wireless network adapter?

My laptop still recognizes when there are wireless networks availible and will "connect" to them but won't let me get online. I went to the network and sharing center (vista) and it shows 2 problems, one between my PC and the unidentified network and another between the network and the internet. I have tried diagnosing both of them and trying the suggested repair options. One option was to automatically get new IP settings for the network adapter, but it came back and said it didn't fix the problem. then it suggests resetting the network adapter, but that doesn't work either. It also suggested turning off and unplugging it for 10 seconds, then trying again. Still doesn't work. It's frustrating because I can see the network and it recognizes it, but it just won't let me use the internet.

    If you see the network but does it allow you to connect to this network? Is this network your wireless network? Is your wireless router's network have WEP or WPA encryption, if so is the wireless card in your laptop configured with the wireless router's WEP or WPA encryption code?

My netbook won't let me connect to a wireless network, it tells me to reset my wireless adapters. I don't know how


To reset the wireless adapter, click "Start", click "Control Panel", and go to "Network Connections" (XP) or "Network and Sharing Center" (Vista or 7), Vista and 7 will have to click "Network Adapters" from there. This should bring up a screen with all available network adapters. Right click the one that likely has the word "wireless" or a "g" "b" or "n" in the name, and click Repair or Reset.

How do i connect to a wireless network?


Hi,


If you have a laptop, you can see a list of available wireless networks, and then connect to one of those networks, no matter where you are. The wireless networks appear only if your computer has a wireless network adapter and driver installed and the adapter is enabled.


To view and connect to available wireless networks

  1. Open Connect to a Network by clicking the network icon (eff2d36c-9e0d-4d1a-9859-3af14fa4ccfc.jpg or da12251d-1e9a-4032-afae-009876c6c5a3.jpg) in the notification area.

  2. In the list of available wireless networks, click a network, and then click Connect.

    Some networks require a network security key or passphrase. To connect to one of those networks, ask your network administrator or Internet service provider (ISP) for the security key or passphrase.

Whenever possible, you should connect to security-enabled wireless networks. If you do connect to a network that's not secure, be aware that someone with the right tools can see everything that you do, including the websites you visit, the documents you work on, and the user names and passwords that you use

My wireless adapter does not detect any reception from the router. i have another laptop at home that could easily detect reception from the router. what should i do?


since the laptop is connecting to the router and is having the internet access as well then clearly the problem is with the adapter or with the pc using the adapter.

Following steps can be considered :-

2)Under network connections an option for wireless connection exist , right click on that option and then click on properties.

4)Left click on wireless network tab and check the box which says use windows to configure my wireless setting's and click OK at the bottom.
5)Then , Right click again on wireless network connection and then left click on view available wireless network.
6)List of available networks will be there , select the network you use and try connecting to it , if it gets connected then the internet access will be there.
