A/G are both wireless they just differ in the frequency that they are running on "wireless A" has bandwidth up to 54 Mbps and runs on 5GHz, and the G is running on 2.4GHz witht he same bandwidth. You dont need to use both at the same time, you just need to select one at a time. If you have other wireless devices on you network running 2.4ghz then you can use the wireless A to eliminate interference from other wireless devices running on 2.4ghz, but your router should also have this standard (wireless A). Router should be a A/G wireless router.

I cannot connect to the WIFI at work, but I can connect to my WIFI network at home, and other public networks. The wireless network at work is pushed by a D-Link 8200AP with a WAP security, just like it is...


Your laptop cannot connect to your work's wireless network because the security settings (ir WAP) in the D-Link is different to the security setting in your Netgear.
The wireless card in your laptop will need the settings changed to suit the D-Link's wireless settings ie the SSID and WAP.
You will need to change the wireless card settings in your laptop back to the Netgear's wireless settings to connect to your wireless network at home.
Some wireless cards allow you to set up different profiles for different wireless networks which allow you to switch wireless networks easily by just selecting the profile for the network you want to connect to.

Dell axim x51 will connect to to wifi hotspot i need detailed instructions to get it to work


Hi, follow the steps found in your owners manual. That can be downloaded at this link.
http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/aximx51/en/om/om_en.pdf

Using Wi-Fi (802.11b)
Wi-Fi provides your device access to WLAN (Wireless Local Area Network.)
Short for wireless fidelity, Wi-Fi refers to any type of 802.11 network,
whether 802.11b, 802.11a, or dual-band. Wi-Fi certified products from
different manufacturers are interoperable.
NOTE: Mid and High configurations of the Axim have Wi-Fi 802.11b built in and the
drivers factory installed. For a Low configuration device, you must purchase the
802.11b SD card, insert it in your device, and load the drivers.
NOTE: The default Wireless Networking Client utility for your device is the
Dell WLAN utility. The following configuration steps are for the Dell WLAN utility.
Configure wireless networking for your device in one of the following
scenarios:
• Network Card is set up
• Wireless Network is broadcasting SSID
• Wireless Network is not broadcasting SSID
If the Network Card is Set Up
Normally the internal wireless card is already set up. There are times when
you must choose the network card. On the Axim X51/X51v configurations
that have built-in wireless, the network card is associated with the enabled
wireless. If wireless is not enabled or you are using a socket card for
wireless connection, then choose the network card:
1 Tap Start → Settings → Connections.
2 Tap Network Cards.
3 Choose either Internet or Work from the menu.
4 Choose the network card to connect to the network. For the
Axim X51/X51v with built-in wireless, choose Dell Axim X51/X51v
WLAN Wireless Adapter.
5 Choose whether the network card assigns an IP address or receives an
IP address automatically.
6 Enter the Server IP addresses if required and tap OK.
If the Wireless Network is Broadcasting SSID
1 Press the wireless button to enable wireless capability. The green LED
in the right top corner of the device indicates that the wireless
is functional.
2 Tap Start → Settings → Connections.
3 To add, edit, or delete a profile, select the corresponding action and
tap Network Cards.
4 In the Configure Wireless Networks window, select one of the available
network names and tap OK.

If the Wireless Network is Not Broadcasting SSID
The Configure Wireless Networks window only shows wireless networks
that broadcast a Network Name (SSID) and those that have been added.
Add the network if it is not listed. Contact your network administrator for
the following information:
• SSID (network name)
• Authentication
• Data Encryption
• Keys (if the key is not provided automatically)
• Log in if necessary
To configure the wireless network:
1 From the Configure Wireless Networks window, tap Add New.
2 Provide the Network Name (SSID).
3 Select either Internet or Work in the Connects To box.
• Selecting Internet allows you to connect to your network but you
will have to manually start a VPN connection, if needed.
• Selecting Work automatically starts a VPN connection any time
you connect to the network.
• If you are having trouble connecting to your network, change the
Connects To box to Internet.
4 Tap the Network Key tab.
5 Enter the Authentication and Data Encryption information. If a key is
required, enter the network key.
6 Select the 802.1x tab.
7 The Authentication and Data Encryption chosen on the previous
screen determines whether this screen is available. If available choose
the EAP type used on the network.
8 Tap OK.
9 If more than one network is listed, tap and hold the stylus on the
network name you want to connect to. A pop-up menu appears.
Tap Connect. After a few seconds you should see Connected next to
the wireless network you selected.
Thank you,
lee

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.

The wireless card is configured for your D-Link at home.
You need to configure your laptop's wireless card for the wireless settings at work too (ie the SSID and encryption etc.). Contact the network manager at your work for the wireless configuration so you can configure the wireless card with these settings.
It maybe possible to setup different profiles on the laptop's wireless card, one for home and one for work so you can just click on the correct profile depending on your home or work location.

1. Connect the wireless router to your computer with a LAN cable.
2. Start your browser and enter the router's configuration URL IP address.
3. Enter the router setup, login and password
4. Change the admin password
5. Go to the wireless settings and change the default SSID and turn off SSID broadcast.
6. Setup encryption key the strongest is WPA2 (if not then WPA).
7. For further security measures - turn on MAC address filtering and enter the MAC address of the wireless cards on the computer/s you want to connect to this wireless router.
8. Record the settings you have made and keep it in a safe place and Save the settings.
9. Configure the wireless cards on the computer/s with the SSID and encryption settings of the router.
10. Remove the LAN cable between the router and the computer then the computers should be able to connect to the router wirelessly.

Toshiba NB 205 connects to router but not internet


The wireless configuration is set differently on routers, eg the SSID, and encryption. You need to configure the wireless LAN card in the laptop to connect/communicate with the different routers.
Some wireless LAN card allow you to setup different profiles/settings for different wireless routers. Eg one setting for the office and one for home, which allows easy connection to the Internet by selecting the appropriate profile/setting.

How to enable WI-FI function on Compaq Presario 2500 lap top.


Go to "network connections"

It should say Local Area Network and Wireless network (if your card is installed properly). Right click the Wireless Network and make sure it is enabled. Then click "View Available Wireless Networks" and choose your network.

If you are trying to setup a secure wireless network, that may be a completely different issue.

Wireless not working


First make sure the Wireless LAN card driver is installed. Then go to device manager and make sure the Wireless LAN card is enabled. If not, right click on the Wireless LAN card icon and select enable. Once that is done you should be able to search for wireless networks. If a wireless router is not broadcasting the SSID for the wireless network, the Wireless LAN card will not be able to locate the network during the search. If that is the case, you will need to set up the connection manually. If you can see the correct wireless network during the search but still can't connect to the network, it may not be an open network, so make sure you have the correct security settings for the network you want to connect to. If you did not set up the wireless network, you will need to get the security information from the network administrator.
