1. Go into the Network Connections (Start->Control Panel, Network Connections)
2. Locate your Wireless Adapter and make a RIGHT click on the icon.
3. Click on "View Wireless Networks"

If that does not work, it may mean that your wireless adapter is using a customized software to manage wireless networks. This is the case for my Intel Wireless adapter. In this case, look in Start->All programs for a program from your wireless adapter or laptop manufacturer (if the card is embeded). If you tell me the exact name of your wireless adapter, I should be able to help you a little further.

I hooked up my D'link to modem and computer and connection is good. But i can't find it when i search on laptop wireless connection. I think you need i driver but i can't find one. Thank You


The Network and Sharing Center in Microsoft* Windows Vista* can be used to set up a secure wireless connection to the Internet.

Note: If an Internet connection is not automatically made by the operating system, you may need to contact your access point (AP), broadband wireless router manufacturer, or Internet Service Provider (ISP).

Set Up a Secure Wireless Connection to the Internet


These steps assume that your network adapter; AP or router; and cable, DSL or another type of modem have already been physically connected and configured. They allow you to create a new connection and configure it accordingly.

Follow these steps to set up a secure wireless connection to the Internet.

Note: If a wireless profile does not exist, you will need to create a secure wireless profile before you can set up a wireless connection to the Internet.

1. Access the Network and Sharing Center.

2. Select Set up a connection or network.

3. Click Connect to the Internet.

4. Click Next.

5. Select Wireless. At this point, if the network(s) that are listed say that the network settings do not match the network requirements, as shown in Figure 1, create a secure wireless profile and then follow the steps again.

6. Select a network and click Connect. If you are not connected to the Internet, you may need to contact your AP/router manufacturer or ISP.

Access the Network and Sharing Center


To access the Network and Sharing Center, use one of the following methods:
  • Start » Control Panel » Network and Internet » Network and Sharing Center
  • Start » Network » Network and Sharing Center
  • Right-click the network system tray icon (the icon that displays two computer monitors) » Network and Sharing Center

Wont connect to internet


Secure is not there to re-assure you, its telling you the network is password protected & you need the password to connect. The wireless key will appear on the staus screen of your router. Connect using a wire, goto the router status screen & write down the wireless key, try to re-connect wirelessly.

i have seen issues with wireless USB adapters. Can you try another USB port on the computer? Also delete the adapter and let it br reinstalled. If this does not help, I would suggest returning it and getting a Linksys adapeter.

Wireless Connection


Move your computer to different postions and see if the frequency of the problem changes. Take your computer to a wireless internet cafe and see what happens as you move around the cafe. If your computer works at the cafe, your wireless router may be defective.

AOL has been and will always have problem (had to do repairs on AOL computers since 1994)

If you have a DSL or Cable connection why pay again for AOL? That means you are paying twice for the same internet connection - and AOL causes lots of problems.

For AOL problems, it is best to contact AOL.
