You need three things
1) An Internet service provider. Once you sign up and agree to pay the fee they will provide the internet service.
2) A wireless router. This is a unit that receives your internet service by through a connection to your telephone line. Then it transmits a radio signal (wireless signal) that your laptop can receive.
3) A Wifi card in your laptop or an external USB Wifi Dongle. This is a radio or wireless receiver that picks up the signal from your router.
The router is usually security protected with a keycode. All you need to do is set up your Wifi card or dongle with the same keycode and you will be able to receive the internet wirelessly.
To check to see whether your laptop has a Wifi card already installed, do the following:
Click Start>Programs>Accessories>Communications>Network Connections> and look for "Wireless Network Connection." If you have this, then your computer has a Wifi card installed and ready to go.

Wireless antenna or wireless router


Did your ISP Boingo supply you with a DSL or cable modem with a built-in wireless router? If only a DSL or cable modem is supplied and you wish to connect to the Internet by wireless then you need to connect a wireless router to this DSL or cable modem.

You can connect to the Internet using a LAN cable from your laptop to the DSL or cable modem.
If your laptop as a built-in wireless card you can to the Internet via the wireless router.
If you laptop does not have a built-in wireless card then you can install a PCMCIA wireless card into the card slot of your laptop to the Internet via a wireless connection.

I have belkin connect n150 and i have two laptops my one laptop is connect to wireless but the one laptop cant access to wireless it says no wireless network were found in range..


If your message is like this " no wireless network found in range make sure wireless on the computer is On". All you need to do is look for the wireless switch usually located on the side or the back of your laptop. Sometimes its near the F keys or start button. You may check your laptop manual to see where to locate the wireless switch , or you can check the laptop manufacturers website usually they gave information on where to locate or enable the wireless feature of laptop.

I hooked up wireless router for computer.....one laptop and an ipod work off the network,but i have another laptop that see's the network but does not connect.......the same laptop will connect to anyother...


The wireless card in this other laptop needs to be configured with this router's wireless settings. It is using the other wireless router's settings and therefore cannot connect to this wireless router..
Most wireless cards in laptops will allow you to setup different Profiles for different router's wireless settings. This will allow the laptop to connect to the different wireless routers by selecting the Profile for the wireless router you want to use.
I suggest you name the Profile by location which will make it easy to identify the correct wireless router.

T40 does not have wireless network adapter, how should i do to ues the wireless router?


Since your laptop don't have a wireless adapter , first thing that you can do in order for you to use the laptop to the internet with the wireless router is to connect the laptop to the router via CAT5 /Ethernet cable then that should now be able to access the internet , but if you want to make the laptop work wirelessly with out the cable connected to it, you can get a wireless adapter like this from Linksys WPC54G or a WUSB54GC if you have any of this wireless adapter you can now use the laptop wirelessly with the router.....

Hope that helps............
