It sound like you have a third party program running you wireless connection, try disabling the program and then connecting using microsoft wireless configuration.

Make sure your WIFI switch is turned on. Most recently made laptops have a switch to turn off and on the WIFI capabilities on the side of the laptop physically. If that's on I would return the laptop if its still under warranty.

Wireless light is on but when I bring in my laptop it doesn't find my network. Just quit working. ??


Turn the router off, and unplug the AC power.
Turn the router on, and wait until the lamps show that it's fully ready.

Be sure that you have _not_ disabled your laptop's wireless networking.
On your laptop, click to "view available networks".
Does the router's "SSID" show up in the output?

Connect an Ethernet cable between the Ethernet-port on the router and the Ethernet-adapter on your laptop.

Click Start
Click Run
Type 'cmd' and press ENTER.
In the "black" window, enter 'IPCONFIG'.
Find the line showing the IP-address of the "Gateway", probably something like '192.168.xxx.yyy'.
Start your web-browser, and enter: http://192.168.xxx.yyy
to connect to the router's web-interface.
Click to run the "Wireless Network Setup Wizard".
The router should restart.
Disconnect the Ethernet cable.
Repeat the "Show available wireless networks".

Or, try some other wireless-ready laptop or wireless-ready iPod Touch, to see if these devices can "see" your router's SSID.

Belkin 54 Wireless Internet Connection Problems


Hello,

If wireless adapter on the laptop is fairly old, you may need to update the drivers for the wireless adapter. Some older wireless adapters are not capable of properly communicating with WPA devices. Typically a driver update of the laptop resolves the issue. If not, try another wifi adapter and verify it is not the OS or laptop itself.

Good Luck.

My network says that it can't find the internal wireless adapter


well! friend i use to work for netgear and let me tell you if your wireless network was unsecured then somebody connected to your router wirelessly and enabled password on your router.it is quite possible that your router login password is also changed.if not then you are lucky.try this ->
goto start - run - type CMD and press enter in the DOS window type ipconfig and enter whatever is the default gateway is just copy it.open inter explorer and type that default gateway in the address bar and enter.it will ask you for username and password.use the username and password provided on the back the router on the sticker.get into your router`s settings goto wireless section and change the password.it would be WEP or WPA.always keep security or that guy will hack your wireless again. if it doesn`t work then you have to reset the router by pressing the little button on the back for 10 to 15 seconds.reconfigure your router with the help of the CD that came with it you can also do it manually if you know.

My network says that it can't find the internal wireless adapter


You may have to reboot your PC and try to connect again.
If you have "Viewed all available networks" and tried to connect to your Wireless network but cannot what kind of error message are you getting ?

To quickly find out if you have Internet Connectivity coming in at all from your Internet Service Provider turn off your wireless switch on your laptop and try to connect a cat5 directly from your PC ( connect cat5 cable to what looks like a slightly larger telephone jack on the side or back of your laptop) to the back of your router and see if you browse the internet. You may have to reset your router (unplug and plug)

I recently bought an Amilio Laptop made by fujitsu Siemens I have tried two different wireless routers and cannot get the laptop to connect with either. It does have wireless built in. What am I doing...


Hi,

It might be that the Operating System is preventing connection to the router because:
  • the network is unsecured. look for the "Connect Anyway button";
  • the Amilo's WiFi is set to a manually configured IP address, pls try "Obtain an IP address automatically" in the Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) Properties of the Wireless Network Connection of the Control Panel/Network Connections;
  • it maybe that your Amilo has its own WiFi configuration and if so, you should disable the OS to manage your wireless connection.
Incidentally, you could try downloading a third party Wireless network detection software that is to verify that the Amilo's wireless card is working and that it can sense the Wireless router. An example would be NetStumbler.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back exact model number of the Amilo laptop, how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

Sometimes the security settings will only let certain MAC addresses connect to the network as well as the password protection. Make certain that yours isn't filtering out MAC addresses.

Try to manually "Add device to network" by using the wireless setup wizard. Check to see if the Wireless Zero Configuration service is "Running" before trying to add device. Yuo may also want to disable IPv6 in vista tcp/ip properties page.
