My kindle wifi won't let me turn it on was working then just quit and now setting says off

Did you check your router is still working?
Are you sure it is still working correct?
To make sure it will work, just reset the WiFi router. If you can't find a reset button, just unplug the router for about half a minute. It will clear all tables, and I think after that it will work fine.

Make sure your wifi switch is turned on. If that doesn't work, try taking out the battery of your laptop, waiting at least 10 seconds, and then rebooting. If THAT doesn't work, try system restore and take it back until before your wifi quit working.

Don,t know where my wifi on it its a travelmate 2300

Dear Friend,

The wireless ON/OFF switch is tipically located at the front end of the computer, otherwise it will be a key combination such as the Key Fn + the F's key on top, depending on the manufacture.

May sure that the wireless card is installed in you laptop computer otherwise, it will not work even if the WIFI sign is on. You can check this by removing the cover located somewhere on the back below the battery.

Wifi not working

Make sure that driver is installed properly. If it is, check for wifi switch. Make sure it is turned on. In some laptops do not have switches, they use the functions keys to turn them on. Use Fn+F2 or Fn+F3. Also, make sure that you just have one wireless utility activated in the computer. It is more advised that you use the Windows Wireless utility which is more compatible with most types of routers.
Lastly, check your wireless card and the wireless router if they are wireless a,b,g or n. If the router is wireless n, your card should also be wireless n. If your card is just b or g, it would not work.

Trouble connecting to open WiFi networks

make sure your wifi is working perfect and turned on. Is it operating on windows 7? if so, just leave it work a while as is quite very common with windows 7 to take awhile with the configurations.

hope this helps.

I am unable to connect my acer aspire to a my existing wireless connection

I have two Acer Aspire One Netbooks: x1 10.1" and x1 8.9". The switch located on the very front right edge of these Netbooks is quite tricky to get it to actually switch the WiFi radio ON / OFF. Double check that switch position and since it is spring-loaded, you will have to try to see the tiny green light flickering if WiFi radio is active. The green ON (active radio) lamp is TINY and dim at best even when Brand new.

Also, if I have had the radio OFF and / or the Wireless connection 'disabled" on purpose, both of my Netbooks require a full hard boot before they will again connect to WiFi.

Hope this helps!
Good Luck

Hi, in order to be able to download videos you have to make sure the video you want to download it on a format compatible with the system. In case that you want to convert a video to be compatible with the psp check this page out: . In order to enable wifi make sure the WiFi switch is on. If you have a psp slim meaning the lighter one the switch is located on top of the psp. just make sure its on. If you have the thicker psp then is located at the left side of the psp. Once you do that, you have to go to network settings on the main menu and input the information of you home network.
