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!

Just bought a toshiba laptop and my computer is


Basically the wireless card in the laptop needs to be configured with your wireless router's setings.
To set-up and secure the wireless router from unauthorized access, follow these steps: -
1. Connect the wireless router to your computer with a LAN cable.
2. Start your browser and enter the router's configuration URL IP address.
3. Enter the router setup, login and password
4. Change the admin password
5. Go to the wireless settings and change the default SSID and turn off SSID broadcast.
6. Setup encryption key the strongest is WPA2 (if not then WPA).
7. For further security measures - turn on MAC address filtering and enter the MAC address of the wireless cards on the computer/s you want to connect to this wireless router.
8. Record the settings you have made and keep it in a safe place and Save the settings.
9. Configure the wireless cards on the computer/s with the SSID and encryption settings of the router.
10. Remove the LAN cable between the router and the computer then the computers should be able to connect to the router wirelessly.

I have an older computer that does not have a wireless card, but my internet is through a verizon um175 air card. i have gotten 10 different answers, and none work. 3 different answers from verizon alone...


Yes you can. Make sure that you disable DHCP in the lan settings section in the router. Use the computer without wireless card as the server, the router will be install in this computer. i have an air card with Sprint and I'm using Encore router and my Wii, and 3 more computer can connect without any problem.

I own a HP DV9000 my wireless quit working


Check the Device Manager to see if the Wireless LAN device is working and enabled. If not reinstall the Wireless LAN driver.
If the Wireless LAN is OK and enabled then sometimes when you bootup the Wireless LAN card doesn't get an IP address from the wireless router. This usually has a red X on the wireless connection icon and sometime you get an error message "Limited or no connection".
To get the router to issue the wireless LAN card with a new IP address, righr click on the Wireless icon and click on Repair.
You can also power down the router wait 15secs and power up the router again then reboot the computer.
If it still doesn't work you could have a faulty wireless card, see it your friendly computer shop can test it for you.

My laptop used to connect to the wireless connection , but one day it stopped working and now i can only connect to internet using a lan cable


go into the device manager and uninstall the wireless adapter. Then click scan for hardware changes and let windows resinstall it. It sounds like a corrupt driver. Before doing so make sure you didnt hit the wireless button that shuts off the connection on the computer. :)
