This could be complex, but the simplest solution might be to do a system restore back to a date when you knew the computer was working properly. Try that, and let me know if that fixed the problem.

Hi,

Good day. In regards to your problem you can do this steps but make sure that your computer or laptop should have a wireless card or wireless enable

For desktop computer you can check it by doing this steps:
> click "Start"
> Go to Control Panel
> go to Device Manager
> click Network Adapter then you'll something that says wireless adapter if there is one installed in your pc

For laptop usually all of them have built in wireless
> you'll be able to see a wireless icon on the lower right corner of your screen.
> there is also a light for your wireless connection
> you need to make sure as well that the wireless switch in your laptop is on so that you can connect to a wireless net work

For you to connect:
> you can right click the icon for wireless ( once you hover the mouse on the icon it will say wireless so that you'll know that you're clicking the right icon) on the lower right corner of your screen
> after you right click it will give you an option to connect to a wireless network
> just click the name of the connection you want to connect to
Note: if you have your own wireless choose that name from the list
> some wireless requires a security code to connect: make sure that you know the password for that ( usually it will says secured )
> if it says not secured then just click the name of the wireless and it will automatically connect.


Hope this help you a bit. Have a great day and thanks for using Fixya.

I can not connect to my wirless local net work on my acer laptop what can I do to fix the problem? ( I was have a problem with avg free and it wasnt allowing anything to work on IE8 so i unistalled avg...


This should be a simple fix, do the following below.
1) Go to start, run, cmd, OK
2) After Cmd opens type this:-
netsh winsock reset catalog
--press enter

3) and again after pressing enter

netsh intip reset reset.log

4) Reboot

You should now be able to access the internet and your router etc.
After doing this go through and set up a new network, WiFi connection, using the icon, in the system toolbar, bottom right, click on the ICON, Right click, and select "Connect to wireless network" Select your network, if asked supply the WEP/WAP Key, password, and login, now you should be able to access the internet, through the router.
Also on laptop, in fact ALL "Clients" ie: Anyone who connects to the router. MUST have a Computer Name, a Windows login password, have sharing enabled, They also must have DHCP & Zero Configuration disabled in services. go, START>>RUN>>services.msc (enter), when the services window comes up, scroll down to DHCP, and turn OFF, set to Disabled, on start up, then, scroll down to Zero Configuration,and stop that and disable from starting too. Now reboot.

If it is Windows 98/ME/2000 then use the adapter utility to connect to the wireless network.
For MAC you will see the AIRPORT icon at the top.

Wireless connection has dissapeared


If there is a wireless icon on the Task Bar then right click on the icon and then click on Repair (this will get the wireless router to issue your computer with a new IP address)
If you don't have a Icon on the Task Bar then go to the Control Panel - Network Connection and right click on the Wireless connection and then Repair.
If this doesn't work, take a note of the error messages and give me the details, then I can give further instructions.
