    I have a wireless router with Netgear mains circuit booster. This appears to all be working ok as we have another laptop used in the house and this is picking up a connection ok.

    I believe it is an intermittent fault on my machine but have yet to establish what causes the wireless part of the laptop to work sometimes and not others.

    Sometimes it just fails to turn on when I switch on an then will then be ok when I use the machine later. I have also had the wireless signal cease while I am using the machine.

    Currently I am having to connect the ethernet cable to get on line.

    Hope that helps and thanks for your assistance.

It may be a compatibility issue betwen the mobile device and the router. Find the router model/name as well as the mobile card or built in mobile device manufacturer/model name so that I may research this further. Some settings in My Network Places will allow you to change how your mobile device will act. For example, you can change the settings so that it ONLY looks for the specific network in your home, rathe than searching for the strongest signal which may cause you to lose connection while it looks around. Another factor to consider is location location location. Where is your router in relation to the laptop at the times that you are losing signal? Consider how many walls it has to go through, or floors if its upstairs and you are downstairs.. Try changing some of those settings and find out those model names, then get back to me to let me know how things go and we will go from there. Good Luck!

Hi i have a Amilo pi1505 i use sky broadband i wish to up grade my router to n i am told that i need a mini pic card can you help


Here is what the mini pci card looks like, it snaps in just like the RAM modules, then just hook up the antennae leads like the one before. Be careful though, because most wireless "G" adapters have two anrennae leads, where wireless "N" has three antennae leads and if thwat is the case with the one you are replacing make sure how many leads it has and if you really want to go with "N" if it has three leads, then you will have to run the third lead up and around the screen or try to tuck it into the bottom case somewhere, where you will get a good signal but not short it out on anything. Below is what the card looks like......

I have an acer aspire 5715z/5315 ihave lost my wireless conection how do i switch my wireless on and off i carnt seem to find the butten


Without knowing the operating system I can tell you this much: go to Control Panel>Network Connections>Local Area Connection>Properties then view the adaptor configuration settings to see if Radio On/Off is a selectable option. Many laptops do not have a physical on/off switch.

I recently bought an Amilio Laptop made by fujitsu Siemens I have tried two different wireless routers and cannot get the laptop to connect with either. It does have wireless built in. What am I doing...


Hi,

It might be that the Operating System is preventing connection to the router because:
  • the network is unsecured. look for the "Connect Anyway button";
  • the Amilo's WiFi is set to a manually configured IP address, pls try "Obtain an IP address automatically" in the Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) Properties of the Wireless Network Connection of the Control Panel/Network Connections;
  • it maybe that your Amilo has its own WiFi configuration and if so, you should disable the OS to manage your wireless connection.
Incidentally, you could try downloading a third party Wireless network detection software that is to verify that the Amilo's wireless card is working and that it can sense the Wireless router. An example would be NetStumbler.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back exact model number of the Amilo laptop, how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

Is it possible to start the wireless automatically (without having to type fn f1) on a FS amilo laptop ?


Normally, if you shut down your laptop with the wireless connection selected, it should automatically enable when you login. It would also be a good idea to set your wireless connection as your default connection in my network places.

Try resetting your IP address:
The laptop may be trying to use the IP address from the old router.

1) Click Start (assuming Windows 2000, XP, or Vista)
2) Click Run
3) Type in CMD
This will take you to a black command box
4) Type in: ipconfig/release
The chart should show your IP address as 0.0.0.0
Once this has happened, proceed to step 5
5) Type in: ipconfig/renew
You should now see a new IP address listed.

Also note that you need to set up your network key (assuming that you are using one) on both the router and laptop.
Make sure that your router is set up to perform as DHCP server.

Wireless router setup


is the problem that "nothing coming from the modem to the router"
if the router has more than one Lan port try the cable from the modem to the router, in the first lan port or the last port.

if its a wireless problem,ensure wireless is enabled on the laptop and the router,if you set up a security key ensure that it is put into the laptop wireless setting

sometimes you need to turn on the modem first then turn the router on after a little while to sort the ip address out before trying to connect the laptop, in the first instance.

hope this is of some help but more info would be good

good luck
