Make a record of your internet speeds 3 times daily for a week. early am, early pm and late pm, If they are running low at around the same time each day I would be getting in touch with my isp and wagging my finger at them :-).

Why can't I connect to wifi anywhere?


there are two systems.
Mobile data and private Wi Fi networks.

Some Wi Fi networks with limited range are available at Wi Fi hot spots but you need to know the password to connect.

In my country Australia Telstra is going to offer Wi FI hot spots for its home users broadband customers and will then bill the usage to their home account. https://www.telstra.com.au/broadband/telstra-air

this is a new network concept in its infancy

How do I stay connected to the Internet when I leave my house?


You have a WiFi device that must send/receive signals from your home wireless system. That generally doesn't extend much out of the home. You need to find a free wifi zone or kupgrade to an iPad with cellular service that connects you like a built-in phone.

How to go to wifi


Wi-Fi technology enables wireless Internet and network access through public and private hot spots. These hot spots are widely located in homes, restaurants, bookstores, coffee shops and other businesses, so you can keep connected wherever you may travel. To connect to Wi-Fi, you must have an enabled wireless adapter on your computer. Most modern laptops and many desktops have this adapter built into the system, but many lack such capabilities. However, a wireless adapter is easily installed via USB, which allows you to connect to available networks through Windows 7.
Enable your wireless adapter. Most laptops have a hot key labeled with a radio antenna. Hold the "Fn" key and press this key to toggle wireless on or off. Desktops likely have a physical antenna on the back of your computer that is typically always on. If you don't see such a hot key or antenna, you need to acquire a USB wireless adapter. Attach the USB wireless adapter to an available USB port on your computer. Windows 7 will automatically install the necessary drivers for most adapters. If it does not, insert the CD that came with the USB wireless adapter into your drive and choose to install their drivers. Restart your computer if you do not see a wireless icon in your Windows 7 notification area. Click the wireless icon in the Windows 7 notification area and click the network name to which you want to connect. If this is your home network, the correct network will likely be the one with the strongest signal. Click "Connect" and enter the wireless security passphrase, if required. Only secured networks will ask for a passphrase, but some public networks will require browser authentication instead. Open your browser and navigate to any website. If the hot spot requires browser authentication, your website request is redirected to an information page. Follow the instructions on this page to get Wi-Fi. This may entail clicking "Accept," entering a given password or entering a cell phone number. After authentication, attempt your website again to verify accessibility. Hope this helps

How to get wifi


First you need a WiFi wireless card or an USB WiFi adapter.
This will allow you to connect to a free WiFi hot spot location such as MacDonalds, Starbucks etc.
If you want to setup your own wireless network at home the you need a wireless router and then configure the wireless card/adapter in your computer with the router's wireless settings.

SETTING UP A BROADBAND CONNECTION
First you need to decide what type of broadband andInternet service you require and these are -
1. DSL that uses your existing telephone line.
2. Cable that uses a cable service and can include a cable TV service.
3. A wireless 3G network which uses the mobile/cell phone network and can beseparate or combine with your cell phone account
Note - Combined services generally offer discount pricing and may include amodem/wireless router.

If you use a wireless router with the DSL or Cable Internet service and yourlaptop has a wireless card then you can also connect to the Internet at WiFihot spots like McDonalds, Star Bucks, the Airport etc.
If you use the wireless 3G wireless broadband service, then you can access theInternet anywhere where your ISP has 3G wireless coverage. You need to checkthe service coverage area where you need Internet service.
Once you decide what type of broadband your require, then you need to checkwith the various Internet Service providers to see if they can offer and thecost of the various plans.
Note the download limits and the associated additional costs if you exceed themonthly download limits. Once you sign up with a Internet Service provider,their documentation will include setting up instructions and/or installationCD.

Is it posible to concect aspire 4720z with wi fi internet


Ok ..you notebook seam to be able to connect via wifi ...For this the wireless card have to be installed with the proper driver suitable with the operation system you use...for to be able to catch a wireless network ...or a hot spot..
A hot spot is a free internet wireless transmitting ..without security protection ...and usually find in public places like office buildings ..public places like official buildings...or parks ..
and for to have your own wireless network you need a wireless router ..and to connect it to the Lan or DSL..connection at home..(make a search on google how to connect and set router wireless)
If one of these 2 are available ...you just open the wireless interface of the wifi card (be sure is enabled) ...and reset and choose to scan for networks ..it will detect all networks in the area..and with specification if it is protected or free..just pick a free one ..or your own by name ..and click connect ...That' s all...you can make several connection ..and store them in memory and set to automatically detect and connect to them ..
In what regards routers..there are relatively cheap ...about 30 dollars..and if you set -up one at your cable or modem connection at home...you will end up ..with 4 lan cable ports ...and with the wireless broadcast in about 100m range..This can be secured in more than one form ...by mac address selection .some of the encryption available on its settings..so you will end up with a network that will allow to connect with a password.. ..
This is about what you need to know .before making one ..or trying to connect to a free hot spot ..
Please do not forget to rate me ..Have a great day !

Connecting new pc to wireless


My first impression is that Windows 7 has been set by Packard Bell to a Public network. You'll need to change this in the Network Sharing Center to a Home or Private network. If not email me

Ok i have a linksys wireless-b 2.4ghz and i was woundering if you could use it to pick up from anothe router in the area or like at an internet hot spot or something


you can, but it depends on the wireless standard that the hot spot is using. if the wireless network that you are connecting to only uses a standard, you will not be able to connect. newer wirless routers uses a/b/g and draft n standard for their wireless.

I cannot use my vaio at internet hotspots. It


So, your "wireless" works at home,
but your "wireless" does *NOT* work anywhere else?

That's not a "hardware" problem -- you just have to open the "Network Connections" folder, and "Find Available Networks", select one, and connect to it.

Find somebody with a laptop at a "hot-spot", buy them a coffee, and ask them to help setup your computer.
