Why cant i get wifi or wireless internet to work


Bill:
depends on how u r hooked to internet. direct thru cat5 cable to modem, or wirelessly thru router? then, you must make sure that your modem is connected to web? make sure modem is connected; plug in to desktop(off) then turn desktop on; go to start, then control panel, then Network and Internet; find out if you see a connection? if so, then right click on network connection, click on Troubleshoot Issues. this will try to resolve your internet connectivity. if you still cannot get online, call your internet provider for more specific steps in fixing.

I have a hp pavilion a1140n and i cant set up wireless internet in my house what do i do


To have wireless internet you would need a (cable or DSL modem depending upon your ISP. A wireless router (doesn't matter which brand) Also for a desktop computer you will need to buy and install a wireless NIC (network interface card) as desktops almost never come with one, only a hardwired NIC (cabled)

I CAN NOT CONNECT TO THE INTERNET ..using Linksy wireless remote


the wireless card installed to your computer is working..as you said you can view all wireless networks...your computer is good too...the only issue is you cant connect to the wireless router...

turn off and unplug the power cable of the Modem
turn off and unplug the power cable the router

wait for 30 seconds
plug in and turn on the modem, wait for all the light turn to solid green ( no blinking lights )

then power on the router

if you saw the wireless icon light turn solid...

go to your computer...right click the wireless icon...select repair

if this doesnt work....reset your internet router by press and hold the reset button behind the router near the power plug (atleast 15 sec)

then connect your PC..the wireless network dont have the WEP key anymore because of the reset..you can reconfigure and put back the WEP key when you get connected.

Cant connect to my wirelessmodem


Try running the cd that came with the router again, since you reinstalled windows, the configurations for the router have been lost. If this doesn't help let us know and we'll work on it from there.. good luck!

I CANT GET MY LAPTOP TO WORK WITHOUT THE ETHERNET CABLE IN?


Hi,

When was the last time using your internet connection wirelessly? If this is the first time you will use your wireless internet. You may need to check it with your internet service provider or you may check it with your wireless modem (router) manufacturer.

Using wireless internet connection, you will need to configure the settings in the wireless modem (router). you will need to get an admin password and username.

If you were able to connect to the internet wirelessly, check if you wireless icon (WIFI) on your laptop is on.

Keep me posted.

Thanks.

I cant get my internet on me vista laptop to work. i have two wire computers and one wireless and the second wire computer makes the laptops internet shut down and when the laptops internet works the wire...


Ok here is the big question what make and model is your router. Anything less than an "n" class router is going to gang up on itself. Also depending on your internet service provider or "isp" and the speed that they provide makes a difference. I find that it is the lower grade g-class routers that have the most trouble. Take care...Be mucho blessed...Mark
