My Fujitsu wont stay connected to my wireless internet


Maybe the wireless card in the laptop is no good or not strong enough to receive a good strong signal. Try sitting close to the wireless router and see if it loses connection. Does it connect at all and let you on the internet before it loses the signal? If it does not connect at all I'd say you might have an issue with the password or the type of wireless security protocol type you selected to connect with. For example there are different types of wifi security protocol types: (Ex. wep, wpa, wpa2) .

I cannot get internet on my laptop from an open access point with Time Warner internet


Hello,

Though you are getting strong signals from the router, the router itself may not be connected to the Internet. The owner may leave the router on but power off the modem. It is possible that they may use the router for thier own private network with no connection to the Internet. When you connect to the router, check your network and sharing center to see if you see an X marked on the connection between the router and the Internet. If you do, the router is not connected to the modem.

Good Luck

I use a dl 514 router. the computer shows a wireless connection and a strong signal but i'm not able to get online. now that I'm using a cable, it still shows a wireless connection with a strong signal.


Its quite likely that the router is not connected to your computer wirelessly. Which means, your wireless card is not picking up a IP address. I would suggest two thigns 1. In your wireless utlity , try to repair the connection. 2. Check if you have a static IP address. If you do, remove it.
Hope this helps
Thanks Ranjit

On a Dell Latitude - no internet connection


The fact that the lights are on and that you get wireless signal means that the computer is making a connection with the router, but the router is not making a connection to the internet.
Try a sequenced power-cycle. Turn off the computer (completely off, not hibernating or sleeping), then turn off your modem (if you have one) and finally turn off your router.
Wait 5 minutes and turn it on in the backwards order. First the router, then the modem and finally the computer. If it's still not working, contact your ISP's tech support, there's probably an outage in the area or another problem with your internet service,

It conects to wireless internet but can not browse pages


It may say it's connected, but your computer may not be sending/receiving any packets.

Are you able to connect to any online messengers?

You could try "repairing" the connection, as that MAY help. You could also make sure that the network you're trying to connect to has an internet signal, has a strong signal, and finally, isn't locked.

My laptop finds wireless router but will not connect to internet


Hi there. You may need to connect to the wireless network manually. What is the operating system running on your computer? If XP, you may follow these. (This is also applicable in other operating system, it may just vary a little) Right click the monitor icon showing on the system tray near the clock. Point the mouse in the icon and it will display the name if it is wireless network connection or network connection. Right click the icon and look for view available wireless network. If it is not showing, look for network connection. Right click and select "open network connection". Right click wireless network connection and select "view available wireless network" . Look for the wireless network you're trying to access or have connection.Highlight and click connect. If encrypted, you need to supply the pass key or security key twice and hit connect. It should allow you now to go online wirelessly. Please remember these, you should be able to go online wired. Make sure that there are other wireless computer connected to the wireless network you're connecting with and can go online wirelessly.

Hope this help :)
