Laptop Wireless won't work

Just bought a used laptop which has been wiped clean. Although the computer has wireless LAN, I can't get it to work. The seller (public surplus -- state gov.) has said that the wireless is working. How do I get it to logon to my network?

Reset the DHCP server address and Check the settings of the default gateway / IP address/ DNS server... These are accessable through the command prompt... Try releasing and renewing them
START........RUN.......(then type) : cmd.....then press Enter... then type ipconfig /release....wait then type.... ipconfig /renew
also go to the manufacturers website and download the updated drivers.. uninstall previous
and make sure you are accessing your own SSID..and changing the WEP key to your own if not at default settings...

I can not get on to the internet at home i have a wireless connection and it was al working fine up untill i wiped my computer clean and reinstalled windows 7 could you please help me my connection is fine...


Hi,

Since you re-programmed your laptop, you need to install the driver for wireless LAN. You mentioned that you're using Win 7 now so you need to find a driver that is compatible with emachines and Win 7. But you can try to download the driver fromm emachines' website:

Hope it helps.

Thanks!

Bought a G Wireless USB Network Adapter, on install when it asks to plug it in the computer cant find it, then I get a error message that I need to instal the network card


To configure the wireless router, it needs to be connected to a computer with a LAN cable. Therefore the computer needs a LAN card and the LAN card driver installed and if you need to connect a laptop or computer to the router by wireless then the laptop or computer needs a wireless card plus the wireless card driver.
To configure the wireless router and wireless cards in the laptop or computer, please click on this link and follow my instructions :-

It's been isolated that the problem is coming from the wireless adapter on your laptop since other pc works fine. Try updating the driver on your wireless adapter and see if that will resolve your intermittent connection.

Wireless connection


Chk if you are able to ping the router ( Start - Run - cmd - ping ip address of the router  ) . IF you can do this when you are wireless, you will know if your card is communicating with the router.
Alternatively, carry your laptop to any hot spot to chk if its the wireless card in your laptop or your router thats causing the trouble. Atleast you can isolate teh issue with this.
