    Yes! same problem and cannot find a way to fix it. computer works through direct lan connection but will suddenly not pick up any wifi signals. the pc is a packard bell which was working fine on home wifi from orange live box then suddenly cannot find a signal - usually picks up more than one. the wireless lan connection is crossed out. checked the ralink wireless status is on and supposedly working properly tried the normal repair but says it cannt see anything to connect to. Another computer can see the wireless signal. suspect it happened after putting the pc in standby??

Try this:

Right click on your wireless icon in the tray.

Left click on "repair". If there's nothing wrong with it, it won't hurt it. If it's gone stupid, it may fix it.

Left click on "status". This will tell you if your wireless actually has a connection. Without knowing the rest of your setup that's about as far as I can go for now. Good luck.

 don't follow you on "without plugging a usb" so I'm going to give you someadvice, if I'm wring or have the wrong machine, please correct me, before you rate me. 
I believe this machine has a built in wireless card. If so, then you need to follow the link below and download the wireless drivers for it. If the wireless drivers are already there, then you need to uninstall them and reboot the machine. The machine will find the wireless card and reinstall the drivers automatically. Many time this type of problem is a driver glitch, and this procedure will fix it. If it doesn't have an internal wireless card installed in it, it does have the slot and you can purchase one to go in it. Here's the link for the Inspiron B130 wireless drivers. You'll find the wireless drivers in the network section, and you may have to try more than one if you don't know the make and model of the wireless card.

Notebook won't connect wifi


Hi, assuming your laptop is switched on.
Above the keyboard on the right side are the three 'Easy buttons'. The one on the left is for the wireless function.

Push this button to activate or deactivate the Wireless LAN. When you activate the wireless LAN function, it will search for a wireless LAN signal automatically (assuming you have the wireless LAN driver installed). Just below the screen on the right side is the Status LED Panel, which show six icons, each with its own LED. The first one on the left indicates Wireless LAN status. When the LED is displaying a green light, it indicates that the system is accessing data from, or retrieving data by wireless LAN. So whenever you press the Easy button, you should see the green status light come on or go off. To repeat, if the light is not on, you need to press the Wireless LAN 'Easy Button'. NOTE! If you can't get the button to come on, you will need to re-install the Wireless LAN driver.

How do i connect my wireless d-link to my internet?


Using a LAN cable connect the router to your internet modem. Usually use LAN port 1 on each unless indicated otherwise.


Login in using your browser and go to the wireless settings and set-up a wireless password/key. Remember the key because each device will now need it to connect. You can also turn OFF Broadcast SSID and your network name will not be shown on anyone's device. You must remember the network name when using this method.

The using the setup wizard, configure your WAN according to the requirements of you modem PPPoE, Dynamic, etc. In some case the router will sense the correct set-up.

The wireless internet connection wont work. we previously had a wireless connection and now it wont register. we lost the connection completely and it doesnt show up on the list of internet connections....


Try turning off the router for 30 secs, then power it up again.
Then try connecting a LAN cable from the computer to the router and see if you can connect to the Internet.
If you can connect to the Internet then -
With the LAN cable open a browser and type in the configuration URL and check the Wireless settings, then check and/or the wireless card settings (it should have the router's SSID and encryption settings etc.)
Also install the latest wireless card driver.
Then test the wireless and Internet connection. If this doesn't work -
Next connect the computer with a LAN cable to the cable or DSL modem to see if you can connect to the Internet.
If you cannot get an Internet connection with the LAN cable, contact your ISP and get them to test the connection to your modem.
If the modem and Internet is OK and you still cannot get a wireless connection then the problem could be a faulty wireless router.

Connect the cable from the LAN port on the DSL modem to any of the 4- LAN ports on the Linksys Swicth (not the port Labelled Internet), then from any of the remaining 4 ports then connect your computer. Also try using a cross-over cable to modem from the DSL LAN port to the Linksys.

Trying to connect a wired network wirelessly to a router


No. You'll need to run a "cross-over" Ethernet cable from one of the "LAN" ports on the "downstairs" router, connecting to the "WAN" port on another router that you will need to buy, and place "upstairs", and connect the 4 devices to the 4 "LAN" ports.

Or, run a long "straight-through" Ethernet cable from your DSL-modem (or cable-modem) that is "downstairs", and move your wireless router "upstairs", and connect the 4 devices to the router's "LAN" ports.
Your laptop "downstairs" should still be able to connect (wirelessly) to the wireless-router that is "upstairs".

Cant connect wired to my router modem? it works via wireless


Do you know for sure that:

A) The cable you are using is correct? Have you used it elsewhere?
B) Is the network connection enabled? Goto Start, Network Connections and look at the status of the connection. It may just be disabled or miss-configured.

Using 2 routers


You may use your wireless router as an Access Point:

1. Connect one of the LAN port of the Belkin to a LAN port on your Voyager. If the link light on both side are not coming on, try using a cross-over cable. Important: Do not connect anything to the WAN port of your Belkin.

2. Configure the LAN IP address of your Belkin in the same subnet as the Voyager. By example, if your Voyager has 192.168.0.1, you may give your Belkin 192.168.0.3.

3. Disable the DHCP server on the Belkin since the Voyager most likely already has one.

4. Configure the Wireless parameter of your Belkin as you would normaly do.

Using this method, your wired and wireless devices will be able to communicate together since they will be on the same network and your Belkin will act as a bridge between the wired and wireless network.
