Switch on your laptop's wireless adapter before running the roter's program. If the problem persists even after switching on the adapter, the appropriate services for the wireless network might not be started. Make sure that the supporting software for the adapter is installed and running.
And also try reinstalling the drivers for the wireless adapter.
Wireless networking is easier in Windows Xp SP2 than SP1.

Connecting 2nd computer to router via wireless


first, your router wont look for your laptop. your laptop has to find your router. make sure your wireless card is activated on your laptop. right click on the icon where it says network cable unplugged. it should then say "view available networks". click on that and look for your network. if you need further guidance, write me back and tell me what brand of laptop you have. also, for the second tower, if you are trying to go wireless with it, then you need a wireless adapter.

Can't get wireless roter to work with computer


Hi Cynja,

Note: You need to use a computer hardwired to the router to check the wireless settings.

1. Please open any web browser like Internet Explorer or Netscape Navigator.
2. Connect to the router by typing http://routerlogin.com/basicsetting.htm or http://192.168.1.1 in the address field and click Enter or Return key.
3. A window will prompt for a user name and password. The default username is "admin" and the default password is "password".

Note: If it does not take password as the password, you might have changed it when you have run the NETGEAR Setup CD so please try other passwords. If you cannot remember the password, you need to reset the router and run the Setup CD to reconfigure it.

4. Click the Wireless Settings under Advanced tab.
5. Check the box under Enable Wireless Router Radio and Enable Wireless SSID Broadcast.
6. Click the Wireless Settings under Setup.
7. Change Channel (recommended are 1, 6 and 11).
8. Change the SSID to uniquely identify your network. You might have a similar SSID with your neighbor.

Note: Do not change the SSID if there are already other wireless computers that can connect to the network.

Other factors that you may consider when you are not able to view any available wireless network:

a. Switch for the wireless adapter is turned off
b. Distance between the wireless router and computer
c. Possible wireless interferences

voodoo

open its program and check to see if it in AP mode, make sure it is in AP mode and the radio is turned on, clear any radio off button. go to the configuration and set up a wireless network, try first with a secureless network,

then when everything works, go for a WPA secure connection

Wireless radio disabled


If you have a laptop and it has built in wireless adapter, it may have a switch or a button that you need to switch on in to turn on the wireless connection radio. Usually, it can be found on the sides or on the front panel of the laptop. On other laptops, you will need to hit some combination of keys on the laptop's keyboard to turn on the wireless connection radio, for example, Fn+F5. Please refer to the manual of your laptop for reference on how to turn on or enable its wireless radio.

By the way, what is the model of your laptop?

How to locate the turn wireless network switch on on the acer aspire 4520


It's asking for the radio switch to be turned on. Some machines have an actual button or slide type switch, it will be marked with a wireless icon that looks like an antennae with waves coming from the top. Machines that don't have a manual switch can be turned on and off by the utility program that controls the wireless card. There are several different ways of doing this depending on the program. If there is an icon on the right hand side of the task bar for the wireless configurator, right click on it and see if it has the option of turning on or enabling the radio. If there is no icon, but there is a program for the wireless, then open the program and look to see if the radio option is there. You may have to open an advanced tab to find it. If Windows configures the wireless and there is no program, then open the device manager, and in the wireless card properties you will find the radio options to enable it. Now, if the radio is enabled, but you have the same problem, then this is a driver glitch, and you will need to uninstall the wireless drivers and reboot. The machine will find the wireless and reinstall the drivers automatically. I know this sounds difficult and it can be rather frustrating, so if you have problems finding the radio enable options, just go straight to uninstalling the drivers. This generally clears it up. If not, get back to me and we'll see what else we can do.

Wireless signal low


Get a better wireless router.

Change the location your using your laptop in.

Google your problem with hack as a keyword to read about how people can use woks to increase signal strength but watch out for laws about radiation and frequencies.

Consider getting a booster to relay your signal.

Check for wireless phones or radios, pay TVs etc. that could be affecting your signal.
