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.

It tells me I am connected to my wirless network but I can not open anything.


Try clearing your browser cache by going into the Internet option and deleting all cookies and temporary files.

You can also try to repair your wireless connection by giving a right click to the wireless connection icon on the bottom right corner of the desktop and selecting Repair.

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.

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.

I need to turn my wirless internetnet option on and cant for my IBM thinkpad thanks


mostly the button is found on the left float side of your laptop 'IBM'. with two icons of a computer. please make sure that the button is on the side of the icon that shows a computer with weaves. so that your able to check the wireless access points you have in your range.
Wireless Connection:
Start > Control Panel > network connection>


Show network connections. If there is an X on wireless connection then connection is disabling and if no X then connection is enable.

make sure its enabled.

Right click on wireless network connection and click view available wireless networks.
You should see a list of available wireless networks


Then select the wireless network that you need to work on and click connect.


An icon in the lower right hand corner of your laptop should eventually appear stating that you are connected.
Then this will show you your wireless connection.

Excellent you connect to your wireless network.

Cant get wirless connection 2 work


Many notebooks do not have a wireless switch, if they do, then it will be easy to locate, and will be either a button or slide switch with a wireless icon marking it. If you're machine doesn't have one, or if you can't locate it we're going to assume it doesn't, then this is generally a driver glitch. Uninstall the wireless drivers from the device manager, then reboot. The machine will detect the wireless card and autoatically reinstall the drivers. Try this and let me know.
