Blu-ray player wi-fi ready vs. wi-fi built-in


Blu-ray players are getting more internet capable and any player made 2010 or later is probably going to have wi-fi or wireless internet connectivity. However not all players are the same. Some Blu-ray players are wi-fi ready while others are wi-fi built-in. What's the difference? Wi-Fi ready players need an extra part called a dongle or adapter stick to make them work with your wireless router and not just any adapter, typically only the one the player's manufacturer offers. Usually this will cost you an extra $80. But Wi-Fi built-in players already have the adapter in them and are ready to go without adding a part. Be sure to check if the player is Wi-Fi built-in, as this is what you want for wireless connectivity.

Receiving pictuer messages


I have had this same problem with Straight Talk before.

First, I would call them up because it would appears that sometimes, Straight Talk does not turn on the internet/picture messaging when doing the activations and they go amiss.

If you have wi-fi in your home or, if you are in a wi-fi hotspot, I would try sending a picture when you are own your own wi-fi or in a wi-fi hotspot. To do this, make sure your "Wi-fi" is turned "On" in the settings menu on your phone.

By having the "Wif-fi" turned to the on position, you can also save on your data usage by using your own wi-fi and various hotspots so you are not eating up your own data. I'm always surprised at how many people do not know this.

So check to see that "Wi-fi" is turned on in your settings and, send a picture over your wi-fi or a hotspot wi-fi. If you are able to send a picture over your wi-fi or hotspot wi-fi then you know that it's a problem with their network and at that point, I would cal Straight Talk and tell them that you are unable to send or receive pictures.

Wi fi adapter keeps disconnecting


Sounds like you have a lose connection. Shaking a laptop isn't the best solution. You didn't supply make, model of machine ,so the best I can do is, open the laptop , find the wireless adapter and secure lose connection or reseat card is applicable.

My pc details-amd semprom 3200+,mmx,3DNOW,1.8GHZ. MY INTERNET SEVICE MODEM IS WI-FI ENABAL,BUT MY PC IS NOT WI-FI. HOW ITS WI-FI CAPABLE NOW


You must purchase a Wi-Fi adapter (possibly a USB Wi-Fi adapter) & follow the the adapter's installation instructions followed by inputting the modem's SSID & passphrase (if there is one). The SSID will probably show up in a list of available networks. Just follow the adapter's instructions. Refer to the modem's instructions for logon information (i.e., SSID, encryption type (if any), passphrase (if any), WPS PIN # (if any), etc.).

I have a compaq presario F756nr with an Atheros wireless wi-fi card in it. Can I replace the wi-fi card with a Broadcom 802.11 b/g wireless LAN card?


no you cannot replace the built-in wi-fi card...
if you try to change the drivers for atheros wi-fi to Broadcam driver, your wi-fi card will not function anymore.... but you can always install another WI-FI card in your laptop... you can buy a USB Adapter or a Cardbus(PCMCIA) adapter for this purpose...if you want your wi-fi signal strenth and range to be higher, you can opt to buy an adapter which comes under N standard....N standard wi-fi adapters are capable of connecting at a speed of more than 300mbps(practically) to any N standard device like router....

Wireless no longer works


1st Solution:
Check if the wi-fi card is properly installed under Device Manager. Go to Start then look for Control Panel on the right pane. Under Control Panel look for System and Maintenance and then click on Device Manager. Now under Device Manager look for Network Adapters and collapse or click the arrow next to it. Check if your wi-fi adapter is installed(10/100 or 10/1000 is your LAN adapter, wi-fi adapters usually indicates something like 802.11x(could be agn or g or b) or the word "wireless". If you don't see anything I mentioned above that means your computer is unable to detect any wi-fi adapters installed. Know if you found a wi-fi adapter but there is a yellow exclamation or question mark, all you have to do is re-install the drivers for your wi-fi adapter(you can download the drivers on the Compaq website for free.)

2nd Solution:
Check if the wi-fi is disabled or stopped, if you have a bulit in wi-fi adapter on your laptop they have a wi-fi switch on the side or near the function keys(F1, F2, F3 up to F12). Wi-fi button/switch will have a logo or marking of an antenna that has waves coming out of it and there is a LED light that will indicate if its on or off(for Comapaq laptops it's either a blue button at the front, near the function keys or at the front panel on the buttom edge.

If both fails then you may need to contact Compaq for further assistance.

Hope this will help you fixin the wi-fi problems on your laptop.
