It could be your firewall settings or that you don't have the correct security key. In my area I detect 6 available networks but I only access the one I have the proper access key for. If you don't have the proper key you can not access the network.

Why cant get internet on my phone when im away from home on my mobile?


If you have a data plan with your carrier that allows you to use a lot of GBs, you can turn on data access over mobile network from your phone's Settings (do it only when you are away from home; turn it off when you do not want to use it). Or you can try to connect to an OPEN wireless network in a public place (coffee shops, bookstores, hotels, etc.).

Hope this helps.

I can connect to wifi network at a hotel, but then came to family home can not connect now, however connection was available and able to connect 3 days ago to this network. I tried to and used restore...


I would for sure look at the security settings, you more than likely saved the profile from the hotel that may be configured as for example wpa and your home may be wep.... check your security settings to make sure you have the correct configurations, also I would go into your wireless settings and delete the hotels wireless profile. You will be able to see the security being used when you look at the network list that shows your ssid signal at home. please feel free to respond with any questions... I hope this helps and good luck. :)

I have a Dell Inspiron Mini laptop. Do I need a sim card if I have Internet Service at home and a router? For Internet while away from home, do I need a sim card? (in a hotel with wireless service?)


no you dont you have wireless capability on your laptop. just turn on your wireless, click on it and it will show you all internet connections just click on your router name and it will connect. same when your away hotel will tell you their router name or (ssid) as its called.

hope this helps.

I'm using a Toshiba C 1.8 14X256M 20 CD Satellite A10 system unit model no psa10L... I do not know if I can connect to wireless lan in hotels. How do I know if my laptop has wireless modem? And if it...


I just googled "toshiba a10" and looked at the specs. It has wireless support but no wireless built in. just buy a 802.11 wireless dongle and plug it into the usb ports and away you go.

My laptop will connect with the internet though a home router. At a hotel or airport it will not connect with the internet service provided by these places. What is wrong


More information needed:
Does your laptop have a wireless adapter?
How do you connect at home? (wireles or ethernet cable?)
What brand of laptop do you have?
What troubleshooting steps have you already taken?

For your information, when away from your home network, you must change your wireless settings to point to the hotel or airport provider where you are trying to connect.

Usually hotels have some contact information and some basic support (some better than others) for their wireless connections.

My laptop would not connect to wireless while I was away in a hotel


Open up you're network connections in you're notebook & run the wireless wizard. Search for you're home wireless network.
You should be able to connect to you're home. Remove any other networks you might find. While you're at it I suggest you setup security for you're home network with a password.

Let me know how it goes.

Wireless laptop


To use wireless conection you need a Wireless Access Point i.e. wirless router. Then you can connect your laptop to this router and use internet. But if you have modem in your lap (generally all laps are coming with modem now) you should direct attach the phone line to your lap. In this case you need a dial-up no which you can ask your ISP.

If any problem just Ask me
