There are many reasons why your laptop is not connecting. First of all make sure that you have the right type of security selected (eg, shared wep key, wpa) Next you may need to create a wireless profile. Another is removing old previously connected networks from your network list.

Mac address


There are a few different numbers that tells networks, the Internet, other computers and so on who you are.
These numbers can include the internet protocol address (IP address), which can be four numbers from 0 to 255 in version 4, or even more in the newer version 6.
However, of all of these numbers, there is one number that identifies your computer and your hardware uniquely, and that is the Media Access Control address, or MAC address.

Open up the run dialog.
This can be done in two ways, either "windows key + r", or go to the start menu and click on "Run".
Type "cmd" to bring up the command prompt.

Type "ipconfig /all".


Record your MAC Address for each device.
There will be one or more devices listed depending upon the number of connections you have, such as Ethernet port, modem port, or wireless port.
Each of these will have a field listed as Physical Address, consisting of six, two number of letter segments.
For example: 12-34-56-78-9A-BC

Linux users

Open up a console window.
This can be accomplished in many ways depending on your distribution.


Type ifconfig -a.
This is analogous to the above ipconfig /all.


Record your MAC Address for each device.

Machintosh owners

Open System Preferences and select "Network".


Choose your interface (such as ethernet or wireless) in the "Show" box.


Find the MAC address. For the Ethernet device, it will be under the Ethernet tab listed as Ethernet ID. For the wireless, it will be under the Airport tab as Airport ID.


Record your MAC Address for each device.

Hi I have an old Fujitsu P7010 I'm trying to connect to wireless network at home . But it doesnt seem to find a wireless network in range.


If you are trying to connect to a free WiFi network site try the Airport. Macdonalds, Starbucks etc.
The wireless networks in your area are most likely private wireless networks and if you find one within wireless range you most likely cannot connect into this network without the owner's permission because the connection will be encryption protection (they would need to give you this encryption key).

I have a hp Pavilion running mac os x snow leopard and i am trying so connect to wifi network and saying no air port found can any one help and help me fix this.


Hi there,
Try contacting HP and check if there's a driver available for the wireless card compatible with Mac OS X. The reason why it's saying it cannot find any airport is because it does not detect the wireless card being installed because there is no driver working.
Hope this helps!

Acer 4720,when switched on wifi button,the light for wifi is flash and the funcion is worked.But switched off wifi button,the light is still on.How can i switch off the light?


For Windows Based Computers

If the drivers for the wireless adapter contain a setting to toggle wireless radio, it can be located using the

following path: Start > Settings > Control Panel > Right click Wireless Network Connection Icon > Properties >

Configure > Advanced tab

Here you will find a textbox with a list of selectable properties that are populated by the device driver. Once you

select a property there will be a value field with a dropdown box containing configuration options that apply to that

specific property. The name of the wireless radio property may vary because the listed properties are dependent on

each specific device driver. It should be fairly intuitive to determine the correct property if you simply have the user

read all the listed properties to you.

Many laptop manufacturers will place a physical switch on the outside casing of the laptop, so that the user can

easily toggle wireless radio. Sometimes these switches get accidentally turned off, or intentionally turned off and the

end user forgets to switch it back. The best practice in these situations is to ask the user to look for a physical switch

on the case of the laptop, possibly with a symbol of a radio tower next to it. After turning the wireless switch on, the

user will probably need to refresh their network list.

Laptops built by certain manufacturers may have a specific keystroke set up to toggle wireless radio.

Below are some examples of wireless radio software and hardware toggles that we have been able to

document:

Acer (General) - FN,F5

ASUS (General) -The F5R has a toggle switch to turn on and off the WIFI; it is located on the left side of the

notebook

Dell (General) - FN,F2 or FN,F8 or FN,F12
Dell d630 (D6xx?) latitude: toggle switch on the left side towards the front by the PCMCIA slots and headphone

jack

E-machine (General) - FN,F2

Fujitsu (General) - FN,F10

HP/Compaq (General Older models) - Button on upper left on keyboard deck
HP/Compaq (General Newer models) - Button on lower left below keyboard

IBM thinkpad (General) - Most have software switch or button on left hand side.
IBM thinkpad (model not further identified) with wireless switch on front edge of case.

Sony Vaio (General) - switch on front left

Toshiba (General) - FN,F5 or FN,F8 or switch
Toshiba Satelite has a physycal switch on front of case. FN+F8 shows wether wireless communications is

enabled or disabled.

For MAC/Apple Based Computers

MAC OS X 10.4.x (Tiger & Earlier)
Open MAc Hard Drive > Applications > Utilities folder > Set the Configure pull-down to Airport.
Make sure the "Airport Power:" says On. (This is the status or your Mac's Airport card.)
If not, click "Turn Airport On" button.

MAC OS X 10.5.x (Leopard)
Click on the: Apple Icon > System Preferences > Network > Airport > Airport Power - On/Off

Wireless doesn't work!?


sure...since the Airport Express runs on DHCP, and your HP may or may not integrate with that standard, you most likely need to adjust your Network Settings for that connection, so your HP is compatible with the AE DHCP settings. Hmmm..let's see..who will be most helpful? www.apple.com no doubt..


got backup for your HP?

Apple Powerbook G4 17in 1.33Ghz. Tiger OS. Airport problem.


I had a similar problem with my 15" 1.33GHz powerbook G4.
My problem was I couldn't connect to a network right away or at all, or wouldn't properly reconize the card (didn't drop it).

I solved it by removing the airport card from my PowerBook and putting it back into my G4. it should be in the same location.
it's underneath the battery pack.
1. power off your G4
2. remove battery pack
3. there is a latch on the right side (if the charger port is facing down), open it
4. pull back plastic cover tab and gently remove the antenna plug from the airport.
5. pull the plastic tab, until the airport card is removed, keep out for 30+ seconds to ensure it erases any corrupt log file on card it's self.
6 place airport card into the slot again, fully inserting it, it should go 1/8" - 1/4" into your powerbook
7. plug in the antenna plug back into your G4's airport(it should click 2x(very lightly)), flip plastic tab back over top the antenna cord, close you latch.
8. place battery back into your G4
9. plug computer in, turn on and it should work
if not then there is something wrong with the airport card reader, which i don't think it's the case here..
