Laptop not picking up Wireless Routers

I purchased my laptop less than a year ago, an hp, and it came wireless and I have had my modem/router set up for all this time, never had a problem connecting.
Last night when I turned my laptop on it said I had a problem connecting to the internet, but also that windows could not detect any networks as it usually detects my linsys router and a whole bunch in the apartment complex.
I need to get this fixed ASAP!!!

Firstly check that it is installed by going into Device Manager.
Goto START - SETTINGS - CONTROL PANEL - SYSTEM - DEVICE MANAGER
Look at the list, If you see your card there with a yellow question mark, or a red exclamation mark then it has an issue.
Firstly unistall the device by right clicking it and select Unistall.
Then reboot and Windows will detect the card again and reinstall the drivers for it.

Check back in Device Manager to see if it is still the same. If so, it is possible it is a hardware failure and would need to be replaced.

Beofre you get to that stage though, turn off the laptop, remove the card (it will be underneath under a panel and will have 2 wires connecting to it) then put it back in making sure to push it into the slot correctly. You do not need to remove the wires to do this, and the card does not need to come all the way out.

Post back if you are still having issues.

Acer 5100 will not connect to wireless


Things to Check:
1. Please check if the wireless switch on your laptop is ON?
2. Are you able to see your wireless network in the list of connections?

If the answer for both of the above is yes, then Turn OFF & Turn ON the Modem/Router.

Please delete all the connections that are stored on your laptop's wireless settings/Wireless connections and retry connecting to your network.

On your modem/router, please remove any security passwords and make the network accessible by any one any try connecting to the network.If the connection is successful, then reprogram the modem / router with a password.

Another easy fix to find if the fault is actually with your laptop is to go to a free public wireless hotspot and see if your laptop connects to their network.If it dd, its not your Laptop but your wireless modem/router.

Cannot get internet access on a laptop because we do not know the "network security key" on an HP laptop through a Cisco Lynksis router.


Some later model wireless routers have the Password (ie.Encryption key) and the SSID already configured in the wireless router and this information is printed on a label on the bottom of the router.
These settings can be used to configure the wireless card and wireless adapters in your computer/laptop.
If these settings do not suit you, then it can be changed to suit your requirements.
The encryption key secures your data and wireless connection from unauthorized access.To configure the wireless settings in the router, connect a LAN cable from your computer to the wireless router, then open a Browser on your computer and enter the router's configuration IP address, then enter the admin login and password and then go to the wireless settings and configure the SSID and Encryption key.
The router's encryption key can be a Passphrase or the WEP or WPA or WPA2 key.If you use the Passphrase method select either WEP or WPA or WPA2 to generate the encryption key. You can enter the WEP or WPA or WPA2 key with 8 to 63 ASCII characters or 64 Hex digits.
Most people use Passphrase which is easier to remember eg. I was born in January 1988.
The strongest and latest security is WPA2, the weakest and oldest is WEP. To connect to your wireless router from the computer/laptop, configure the wireless card in your computer/laptop with the router's wireless settings ie SSID, plus the WPA or WPA2 encryption key. Then computer/laptops can communicate with your wireless router.

Wireless conection


To enable or setup the wireless on a modem router you usually have to connect the computer to the router with a lan cable first, go in to the routers settings, most routers use the web browser to access the settings but read the manual for the correct procedure. Then you put in your account details supplied by your internet service provider.
Enable wireless and apply security settings like a wep key, wpa, or wpa2 passkey. Restart the router, remove the lan cable and you're done.
When any wireless device tries to connect it will need the wep key, wpa, or wpa2 passkey to be entered to allow access.

Do I have to have a wireless card in my lap top to make it work with my router, the lap top is a Hp 7000 and router has wireless set up. I can make the wireless light, light up but I can't get on...


Call up the company that made your computer, and tell them of this error. You are most likely missing the driver for your computer that allows wireless internet. They will tell you exactly what you need.

Getting laptop connected to web-not Int. Explorer 8 issue


In order to get her connected legally, you will have to set up your own wireless network. This will require a broadband connection of some sort (DSL or Cable modem) and a wireless router. Your ISP or the routers tech support should be able to help you with basic configuration.

How do I get internet on my laptop from my pc not using a cable?


what you would need to get is a wirless router. If you have high speed internet then you can plug the internet modem into the wireless router and then plug your main pc into the router via an ethernet cable and then set up your laptop to pick up the signal wirelessly. If you have dial up internet then you would still need a wireless router but it is a little more complicated. You could hook up the router to your main pc and then set up internet connection sharing so that way your laptop could pick it up wirelessly. hopefully this helps.

uninstall the drivers for the wireless card then run windows live update the wireless card should be found and the drivers should d-load and then install themselves if that doesn't work try resetting your router or modem for the internet... sometimes certain computers in a house will receive a signal, and you might get the signal as well but the computers are messing around with the wireless... this happens more with belkin routers just restart the router and just run that one computer on the wireless network and it should start working. then you can allow all the other computers back onto the network
