Maybe you need to turn on home networking in your desktop pc and allow other devices to connect to the internet through it. If you have not turned on home networking or set up your wireless connection access in your desktop pc then go to the ICON's in the control panel and follow the instructions.

Set up wireless first by going to the control panel and looking for the wireless set up wizard. Then follow the instructions.

Then do the same for home networking. Look for the Home networking Icon in the control panel and choose set up new network and follow the prompts.

Wifi network not working in some rooms


Change the position of the WiFi router, because there are things like duct work, metal studs and electrical wiring concealed in the walls that can and will have an effect on WiFi signal strength.

Cant get wifi unless I am a couple of inches from router. All other wifi devices work perfectly. I even downloaded the latest driver directly from Intel and problem still exists.


Having a wireless Internet signal in your home allows multiple devices to use the same Internet connection without having to run lengths of Ethernet cable to each device. Given that the wireless network is transmitted over the air, the consistency of your Internet connection depends on the strength of the wireless signal. If wireless signal strength is not strong enough to give you a consistent Internet connection, there are a few simple steps for finding the problem and improving your signal strength.

Reset all devices. The majority of Internet issues, including poor wireless signal strength, are very often solved by a simple power cycle of all the devices in the network. Locate the power cords of both your modem and your wireless router and remove them (if you use a modem/router combination, simply unplug the power to that device). Leave them unplugged for a full 30 seconds, plug them back in and restart your computer. When your computer fully reboots, check your wireless signal strength to see if it has improved. If it has not, further troubleshooting is required. Move your computer closer to your router, or your router closer to your computer. Wireless routers do not have unlimited range. One reason your computer may be getting a weak signal strength from your wireless network could be because your computer is simply outside of the router's range. Typically, ISPs (Internet Service Providers) will install your modem in one specific location in the house and the modem will not work at other locations, so moving the modem or modem/router combination may not be a possibility. If this is the case, you may need to move the computer to a location that is within the range of the wireless router's broadcast. If you still get poor signal strength, your router may be experiencing a malfunction. Contact the technical support department of your router manufacturer. Router malfunctions often are not the result of a bad or broken router, but of something much simpler, such as the router's needing a firmware upgrade or an incorrect setting on the router's internal setup. If your router manufacturer is unable to improve your wireless signal strength, it may be time to purchase a new router. Purchase a new router. Wireless routers are priced in part based on how widely their wireless signal broadcasts (in other words, the more expensive the router you buy, the larger a wireless signal the router will broadcast). Included in the packaging of each wireless router is the approximated range, in square footage, of that router's wireless network. A good rule of thumb is to know the square footage of your house and buy a router that can accommodate that square footage. That way, as long as the router is functioning properly, you will have strong wireless signal strength throughout your entire home.

Hi i have Gtalk but some of the wifi it is


It is mostly becuase of the poor wifi connectivity in those areas. Make sure you have proper signals in those areas. If you don't have proper signal strength in those areas then you can use some wifi repeaters to boost your signal strength.
Hope this might help you solve your problem Best Regards NextDoorNerd

Wi-fi connection does not work


go to settings and wifi...look for your network and tap on it.
Join your network and if it is secure it is asking for the WEP key which is on the label of the router.
Enter that kep and it should join.
if it is truely an unsecure wifi you should be able to get right on by joining it.

You may be seeing full signal but it may be your neighbors or next door

Good Luck
