If you have never tried using the wireless before then the first thing I would check is that the wifi is switched on. There should be a slide switch either on the front or the side, some models have it near the screen. This switch turns the hardware off and I don;t know anyone who hasn't had to hunt for it me included. Once that is turned on then the system will now be able to find the wifi hardware and will either say it found a new device or will be already setup. That is the usual cause with new laptops probably about 9 out of 10 times or more.

It is possible the hardware has failed. Then you will find the device and go through setting it up but it won't connect. You have to be careful to make sure that it is not just a bad setting
either for the network or something like the security key,

I would try:
1. updating driver
2. try connecting via Ethernet, if the issue is only wireless connectivity, try using a USB wireless network adapter, if that works means your lappy has a bad built in network adapter.
3. Are you locating laptop too far from router?
Good luck.

Not able to use wireless internet


Hi,

This method will hard reset the wireless drivers back to default settings, but before you perform this remove power from the modem and router for 2 minutes reconnect power and wait another 2 minutes for them to settle down.

Right click "computer" select "manage" and then "device manager", a list will populate, then click on the + sign next to "network adapters" and right click on the wireless adapter and "uninstall" the device, reboot the PC and wait for windows to detect the wireless card and install the drivers for it, this will appear in the system tray (bottom right hand side) when its done try to connect again.


Good luck

hello!

-- who is your internet service provider

you may try this and see if this help solve your problem. make sure your computer is directly connected to the router

Step 1: Shutdown the computer.
Step 2: reset the router while power on then Unplug the router’s power cable.
Step 3: Unplug the Broadband modem’s power cable and wait for 30 seconds.
Step 4: Plug in the Broadband modem’s power cable and wait for its lights to appear stable.
Step 5: Plug in the router's power cable once the modem’s lights appear stable.
Step 6: Power on the computer on and configure the router settings
Step 7: test the Internet connection.

if this still didnot work, upgrade the firmware of your router
