Should make no difference, however if you have not activated the security feature on it, anybody with a wireless device can gain access through your system.

There is no light in Netgear N150 Wireless Router WGR614v11. What is its life?


are sure its plugged in?
is the outlet good? plug it in somewhere else, sometimes its a switched outlet you don't even know you have and you just have to flip the light switch you never pay any mind to.

stuff goes bad, that router isn't that old... I see way older routers working fine.

When I turn on the wireless on my Vaio laptop running vista, the wireless network I having running through a linksys (wrt54g) router stops working.. sometimes after restarting the router it will work for...


Hello,

The Problem you are having comes up because you probably put on your router before putting on your Computers, including your laptop.

What I would advise you to do is that, always try to put on your Computers first, before turning on your router.

This will make your router to dynamically distribute IP Adresses to your computers and therefore reduce conflict.

And if at any time, you make a mistake of putting on you router before your PC, just switch off your router for 2 Minutes and switch it back on.

It will enable your router to renew IP Adresses to all your Computers without having conflict.

Then Always remember to make your Computers Obtain IP Address Automatically, and your Router Should be set to use DHCP.

This Solution is an exact solution that I used in my office last week, so its proved to work.

Hope this helps you out.

Keep me posted about the problem.

Goodluck

Wireless Router to Computer connection problem


Look underneath the bottom of the laptop. HP is known for putting the wireless toggle switch under the laptop, to keep it out of the way. But that also keeps people from finding the switch to wireless, from wired.
I'd bet your laptop works if plugged into the network with an RJ45 cable.

What is the slide switch on side of a Toshiba Satellite Pro 4600


The slide on/off switch is for your internal wireless card. It must be on if you intend to connect to a wireless network, otherwise you can leave it off to save battery power.

To tell the approximate battery life left on the unit, click on the battery icon next to the clock when you are running on batteries. It will tell you what percentage and the approximate time left of the battery.

Thanks and please take a moment to give this solution a rating of fixya.

Unable to connect to the Internet


Check to see if your wireless card is displayed under “Network Adaptors” in “Device Manager”. You can access the "Device Manager" by going to the 'Control Panel", "Administrative Tools", "Computer Management" and select "Device Manager" located in the left side column. If it is detected and there are no alerts or errors, try uninstalling the wi-fi card, reboot the laptop and reinstall the drivers.

Hi i cannot see any wireless LAN on my new toshiba L300-11c laptop? can you advise how to sort this please? Thanks


You need to go into the routers programming and make sure the SSID is broadcasting and also while inside the routers programming rename the SSID to something familiar like your last name. If you need help accessing the programming let me know what Brand/Model# router you have and we will make sure its working properly. Also some laptops have a manual switch for turning the wireless on/off usually on the left side near the front.
