I have an acer aspire one laptop that will not connect to internet thru wireless connection. System shows that wireless connection strength is excellent but internet explorer cannot display webpage. ...


1.- Try to find the wireless card switch (or button). Look the wireless led indicator, must be on.
You should surf if the led is on.

2.- If not works, go to device manager and look to your wireless device and turn the switch on and
off again. Look if the device is accepted without any sign. If the device get any sign then you
have problem with your wireless driver. If no sign. Open My Computer and then open networks
or my network places, and try to access to any other computer you have.

3.- If the device is ok in device manager and the led indicator is on and you can access other
computer thru network places, then open Internet explorer, go to tools, then go to internet
options, then go to connections and there click on Lan settings. In the proxy section uncheck
the box. Restart your Internet Explorer and it must surf now.

Good Luck and remember to rate my answer.

My modem is working perfectly on my notebook then i installed my Linksys router on the modem and router to my notebook. I turn on the power of my modem everything is light up then i power on my router,...


Wireless broadcast is usually the first thing to go when a router is failing. How old is your router? Try these steps:
Turn off computer
Remove power from router
Remove power from modem
Wait 2 minutes
Restore power to modem
Wait for modem to boot up and gain all signals
Restore power to router
Wait for router to completely powerup
Watch for wireless indicator light
Boot up computer, verify your wireless network is broadcasting
Connect

If you still can not get the wireless network to access the internet, try connecting your computer with an ethernet cable. If everything connects fine and you can access the web, it might be that your router is going bad and needs replacing.

Try running the ethernet cable from the modem to port #2 on your router. Then run the second cable from port#3 on the router to your computer. This effectively uses the router as a pass-thru and bypasses all its functions. If you are able to access the internet this way, you need to replace the router.

Connected but internet says diagnose connection


Is there any computer able to access the Internet ?
If this is the only computer then connect the computer to the router with the cable and see if it works.
If you are able to access the internet with the cable connected to the router and computer then then the wired part is working. Check the wireless settings of the router. Also make sure that there is no static IP address set up on the wireless network connection.

Hawking Extender- Connected to WiFi but cannot access Internet


First think I always do is Reset Linksys Router and disconnect extender. Then turn off all security on router. Do soft reset on ipod. leave extender off and see if you can connect to the linksys. If you can then plug in extender (still with security off) then see if ipod connects to extender.

you might have to soft reset ipod again once you connect the extender.

if that works. reset security. Let me know how that goes.

Trying to set up a second computer for wireless


What wireless mode is you router operating in? Does it support the cards on your other systems?

Do you have mac address control enabled?

Try disabling security temporarily to see if you can connect; your wireless connection may not be setup to authenticate properly.

Unable to access the internet via my laptop


One of two problems. The Security Key for your wireless connection is wrong, or the McAfee is causing a problem. Most likely conflicting with any other virus software on your computer. Try removing McAfee from the computer and your solution should go away. Try another virus software such as Avast! Home edition. McAfee is known for having issues with wireless internet connections.

I have purchased a Belkin Wireless G Router for a cable modem. I have installed however i am unable to see the wireless network. What have i done wrong ??


Hello experts....

My problem is not being able to work wirelessly with my laptop. My answers to your questions are underlined(I've used your questions to someone elses problem)

One possible issue is your router's wireless radio is not enabled- the light on the router is lite on the symbol for wireless

or the wireless radio is not enabled on the computer you are attempting to connect to the router with - there is a switch on the front of this machine which is switched to wireless.

There are many other possibilities as well. That is why we need you to carefully answer EACH ONE of the following questions.

(01) Which of the following is your router?
-->> F5D7230-4 (Wireless G Router)

(03) Are ANY of the computers connected to your Belkin router able to access the Internet?
YES

(04) If there are other computers connected to the router that are able to access the Internet, how are they connected? (in each case, please)
only this machine is connected but it is by....
(b) wired (using an Ethernet patch cable connected between the router and the computer)

(05) What is the manufacturer and model number of the computer you are attempting to access the Internet via the router on?

HP Pavilion dv2500

(06) What operating system is installed on the computer you are attempting to access the Internet via the router on?

This machine is operating on Vista but the internet access I have is with talktalk

(07) Have you ever successfully connected (wirelessly) to the Internet from the computer you are attempting to wirelessly access the Internet through your Belkin router on?
NO


I hope you don't mind me using your questions to someone else, I thought you might be able to figure out what I'm doing wrong. I am connected to the internet but don't seem to be able to work wirelessly. Lorraine

Network not working after dsl modem connected to router


I assume this message indicates that wired connectiions to the router are successfully accessing the internet -- is that true?

Wireless are not accessing the internet, but appear to be connected to the router - is that true.

Do you know how to run PING? IF so ping the router from the wired and wireless and see if it works? IF it works wired and not wireless we have a wireless issue. IF it works from both we probably have a IP issue diagnosis follows this.

Do you know how to run IPCONFIG /ALL -- If so run it on the wired machine and the wireless machines -- gather the IP Address, Subnet Mask, Gateway, and DNS addresses from each machine. Any machine lacking DNS addresses or with invalid DNS addresses can not access the internet sites by name like www.google.com. If the gateway address is incorrect a machine cannot access the internet.

If you do not understand any of the above please ask by adding a comment to this message and I will attempt to provide detailed instructions.

Please provide the operating system of your computers to assist in providing directions.
