You might have to enable your wireless function through an on/ off hot key sequence these are different for differing machines.That is where to start goto manufactures site/manual to do this,
After this you might be able to check your signal strength depending on you OS.
of course you could telephone your ISP support and find out if the link is up or down(sometimes the engineers need to work on it)
you could also buy a keyring type device that will signal networks in your area for a nominal cost
The 802.11 wi-fi protocol has between 11 and 14 channels depending which country you are in (except Korea)It sends out "frames" in rapid succession that are known as "packets"There are currently in europe and the us 4 protocols excluding "Bluetooth" which are backwards compatable.
you could also buy some kind of active anrtennae to bring the signal nearer to you operating base

It is possible that the Xbox will be unable to pick up the wireless signal being transmitted by your gateway because the signal is too weak.

The connection speed of your internet has nothing to do with the strength of the signal. The best way to test this would be to try to connect to your wireless internet on a laptop while sitting near the xbox. If you cannot, you will know that the signal isn't powerful enough to reach that location.

There are three common options to amplifying your signal if necessary.

1) Purchase a High-gain antenna for your wireless gateway
2) Purchase a wireless repeater
3) Purchase a new router/gateway with a longer range capability. A "Wireless N" enabled router would be optimal for this application.

I have a dell Vostro 200..I want to go wireless with a Airport, Just got a Mac with the airport, will this work?


The airport is just a receiver that picks up wireless signals.

If you want your computer to pick up wireless, you need a wireless
router, and a wireless card that goes into the computer so it can see the router and get the signals.

There are tons of wireless products, and it depends on the slots you have on which kind of wireless card you get.

On the setup for your wireless network through your router, you have to allow access for other devices. Your internet provider should also be able to walk you through this process as they did for me when I had the exact same problem.

Will Dell Inspiron laptops pick up 802.11 wireless network?


I'd get the N-wireless card. It makes your signal much stronger, you pick up more signals, and you have less interruption. You won't get to see the full benefits without an N wireless router, but you will still notice an increase with a G router. I have an N wireless USB adapter hooked up to my desktop right now and I get 1-2 extra bars than I do with my laptop in the same spot (which has a G wireless card).

Inspiron 6000 has trouble picking up wireless signal


Some wireless cards are better than others at picking up weaker signals.
The problem with any wireless transmissions is that radio signals cannot pass through metallic surfaces.
You should position your wireless router away from metallic surfaces/walls and position your laptop so it can receive the radio signals without it passing through any metallic walls. If possible place the wireless router higher than at desk level.
