1.Log into router. Using either 192.168.0.1 to 192.168.1.1 in a browser window that is ( internet Explorer or Firefox). If you have a yellow flashing light at the "INT" or Cable then you will have to check with your ISP to check connectivity to your router.
2. Verify wireless router name( on the computer) >>> ( on/off) ( router status window)
3.Note router name you are connecting to.
4.. Check the laptop do ipconfig /all to see current IP addresses.
5. Set the laptop up in the router by WEP KEY or MAC address. This set up in the "security tab" in the router. using 192.168.0.1 or 192.168.1.1 to access through a browser.
6.Note router name you are connecting to.
7. Move the laptop about 20ft away and try to log on to the internet.
This is for all routers to set up wirelessly.
8. check for firmware update at the manufacturers site for your model router
9. cell phones, cordless phones, digital TV's, can affect the data signal from a router. Also distance from the router can be a factor. If your router is in a basement place the router to a upper floor and center it in the room.

Cant connect to wirless network


if you can connect to your wirless AP from other devices such as mobile or other laptop this means that you have to check the following:
1- delete then re-create your wireless profile .
2- make sure that your wireless adapter is cofigured to obtain automatic ip address not static.
but if you are not able to connect with other devices , then make sure that you have the correct security password (if any) or check the configuration of your Access Point.

Fujitsu siemens not seeing wireless networks


Go Fujitsu Website and support, download drivers and download the correct WIRELESS NETWORK DRIVER and/or ADAPTER drives. Select RUN and reinstall them (all).

If that does not work then it may be the network adapter which may be behind a back flap. Remove and Replace with same part. Actually its easier just to buy a USB or PCMCIA Network Adapter from Radio Shack to plug in to your Notebook, comes with software and driver installation disk about $40. This is generally the best solution as it works independantly as a "plug in", easier to install if notebook's built in Network Adapter is defective.

No Link button on Router


Routers can only access so many adresses. Check the install disk and look at the router it may be a settings issue or too many devices.(not enogh info) You can link to your router by your computer and diagnose the problem.
