There are three ways to turn the wireless function on and off in most units.
1. Hardware Switch: Which is generally the culprit, a little switch on the front of your notebook, when it is on there should be a small light indicator, it only has two positions, on/off. It is the 2nd button/indicator from the left of the front of the notebook. (Bluetooth is first, from the left and looks like a capsule with a twisted paper clip in it, the wireless looks like a circle with a dot and a small line)
If that does not do it for you then...
1. BIOS the screen that comes up initially and gives you a menu before Windows loads. (or whatever Operating System you have) If you did NOT change the BIOS, then DO NOT change the BIOS, unless you are familiar with it, you can inadvertently damage data, however rare and unlikely.
2. Windows can turn the hardware off and/or disable the software that is driving the wireless hardware. Linux is the same. You MUST have the software necessary to "run" the wireless card. However, if you have NOT changed the stock software that shipped with the unit, then possibly it is disabled.
You must go into Control Panel, Network, and look over your Network Connections, make sure it is not software disabled.
Let me know which you need instructions for and if you need more input.

    P.S. We have the same notebook here and I am always bumping the little switch on the front. If these answers do not help you, the device may be malfunctioning or you may need to install a software driver. Let me know if you need more help.

My new wirless acer aspireone d250 will not connect to my network, it keeps tell me its unable to connect to preferred wireless network


Wireless Network? With password for login OR for free.....? Make sure this....
If your laptop have wireless internal and turn ON. See your indicator WiFi. And your laptop may be detect some hotspots in your area. If ready to know that hotspot, that's mean your WiFi in laptop is WORKING for that purpose. And you can ask to network administrator for your purpose and log into internet (with WPA key or for free...)

Tiscali wirless connection issue


Sounds like the router may need a firmware update as the DHCP service is failing to run correctly.

You can however just use a static ip address.
First of all find out the network address in use.
eg. 192.168.0.1 - 192.168.1.1 - 192.168.2.1
to find out, - start menu - run - cmd - ok - ipconfig

1. Log on to the client computer as Administrator or as Owner. 2. Click Start, and then click Control Panel. 3. Click Network and Internet Connections. 4. Click Network Connections. 5. Right-click Wireless Network Connection, and then click Properties. 6. Click the General tab, click Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) in the This connection uses the following items list, and then click Properties. 7. In the Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) Properties dialog box, click Obtain an IP address automatically (if it is not already selected), and then click OK.

Note You can also assign a unique static IP address in the range of 192.168.0.2 to 192.168.0.254. For example, you can assign the following static IP address, subnet mask, and default gateway:

IP Address 192.168.0.2
Subnet mask 255.255.255.0
Default gateway 192.168.0.1
