Asus laptop cannot connect to wireless network, any ideas?


If the only thing that has changed is the install of the AT0100 utility then I would un-install that utility. I'd agree that the wireless connection is sortof not the problem. The fact that can and are connected indicates that connection is being made. However, it could be an "ip" issue. If you are connecting through DHCP then your system should be able to pick up a new "ip" lease and it should connect though that could take just a little bit of time. You might go into the adapter settings and check your ipv4 settings and verify that it is selected for DHCP or an address with a correct subnet mask and Default gateway. A way to check is from the start button, type cmd and press enter. This will bring up a separate screen. At the Dos prompt type "ipconfig /all" This will give you the details of all network devices on your laptop and how they are trying to talk.

Acer aspire 4250 wireles problem (may due to adapter setting.


Connecting your Acer laptop to your home wireless network is fairly simple.
Before you begin you need to know the SSID broadcast name (Wi-Fi) network name and security passphrase (Wi-Fi network password).

Move the Wi-Fi switch to the "On" position.
Not all models have this switch.

Open the Windows Start menu and select "Connect To."
A list of available connections will appear.

Select "All" from the drop-down menu to view all available networks and connections within range.

Select the desired network and click "Connect."
Enter the security passphrase if prompted and click "Connect" again to join the network and gain wireless Internet access.

Windows 7 Acer AspireLaptop wireless

Wireless Internet is a convenient way to hook up multiple computers to one router without the mess of cords.

The router or 2-in-one (router/modem combo), must be set up through your Internet Service Provider and connected with either a DSL line or Cable.

Since most Acer laptops have built-in wireless, no additional hardware is required.
Turn on the laptop.

Move the switch located on the front of the laptop to the right, then let go.
The switch will go back to its original position.

Confirm that the wireless networking icon has appeared on the screen.

Right-click the wireless icon in the bottom right corner.

In Windows 7 this will resemble a small stair-step triangle; In Vista it looks like a tiny monitor.

Click "View available wireless networks."
It might also say "Open network and sharing center."

Wait while the adapter finds your wireless network.
Click to highlight the network and click the "Connect" button.

Enter the security password that you created when setting up the router (if applicable).
If you don't know or can't remember, log in to the gateway page specified in the user's guide.

Locate the "Wireless security" settings page to see if security is enabled.
If it is, type in a new key and enter the same number for the wireless network.

I have a windows 8 gateway laptop(NE71B Series) and its seems as if my wifi switch is disable. Anyone with a bit of advice on how to resolve this problem would be very helpful.


Recently had a coworker bring me a Gateway NE71B laptop.
Complaint: No wireless even using a VZW 4GLTE hotspot.
Observations:
; All drivers and devices are functional with no errors or conflicts.
; Wireless adapter has power and is not in Airplane mode.
; No wireless networks are visible even though there are normally as many as 12 networks available within the area.
; Wired Ethernet adapter works without issues.
Solution:
Turns out the BIOS was v2.05. After updating the BIOS to v2.13, wireless connectivity is functional. All locally available wireless networks (SSIDs) are visible.

Notes of caution:
; A failed BIOS update will invalidate your warranty per Gateway chat support rep.
; Ensure you have a fully charged battery before updating the BIOS.
; Ensure your AC adapter is plugged in and functional prior to starting the BIOS updater.

How to connect laptop (using internal wireless adapter) to a wireless network)


Make sure you have the correct Password exactly like it should be (case sensitive). If it is not correct, it will continue in the loop of trying to validate identity.

Also you can click Start/Control Panel/Network Connections then Right Click on the Wireless Connection and select Properties.

When the properties window opens click View Available Wireless Networks. Highlight your network by clicking on it then select Properties.

The Association tab will allow you to change the Network Authentication to WPA2-PSK if it is not set to that and if the adapter will accommodate it. And you can put in the Network Key or Password.

Sylvania net book doesn't see available wireless


If it's not seeing wifi networks, more than likely, there is something wrong with the adapter. Try these steps:
1.) Look for a WIFI switch on the side or front of your laptop and make sure it is set to the ON position. 2.) Check Device Manager to make sure the driver is installed and working. If it's not, uninstall and reinstall. 3.) Go into Network Connections and make sure the Wireless Connection is set to Enable. 4.) If none of that works, perform a System Restore to a time when everything was working. 5.) If this doesn't work, you need a WIFI adapter replacement.
I hope this is helpful and thanks for using Fixya!

Wireless card on packard bell laptop not working


I believe your problem is the network key, you changed it most likely. And you are now locked out of the network. The "key" in your computer must match the "key" in the access point (wireless router). WEP is a security protocol that runs on the wireless link. The 169 number tells me your wireless adapter can not create a link between it and the wireless router. So you are not connected. You'll need to get the "key" from the wireless router. Try entering 192.168.0.1 (that a guess on my part as to the number, generally this is the gateway address) as a web address on your desktop and look at the security settings in the wireless router.


Or else, restart the router and try to connect it again.. Anyone of this should work

Sometimes my laptop does not conncet to the internet service home


Is wireless turned on? There is a slider switch on your laptop that turns wireless on and off. If it's on you should see a little blue light, if it's off it's amber-colored.

Next, make sure you're wireless security settings match those on the router.

Do you have a wireless adapter program on your laptop or are you using the windows wireless setup (if you R-click on the wireless icon in your system tray -down by the clock- and you select, "Connect to a Network" you should see available wireless networks. If there is a message that says Windows cannot manage your wireless connection, then you're using a 3rd party wireless manager. You need to find out what it is and if it's running it needs to be configured to work with your router.)

No internet connections found


First, you need to be sure that the wireless networking adapter is enabled.

  1. From the Start menu, click Control Panel.

  2. In Control Panel, click Network Connections.

  3. Check the status of Internet Connection and Local Area Connection that indicates WIRELESS (it's most likely a Broadcom product).
  4. If either item says disabled or not connected, right click and select ENABLE from the menu.
  5. Close all open dialog boxes and windows.
  6. Use the Windows XP Wireless Zero Configuration, located in the system tray at the bottom of your screen, to test the adapter.
  7. Double-click the icon with one monitor and 3 wave lines on the right side. Your network should be detected.
If that doesn't pan out, post back and I'll give you Plan B.
