There could be an actual switch to turn it ON/OFF or it could be a key combination, like <Fn> <F2> or something like that. Check the keys for picture of an antenna or on the side of laptop.

How do you remove or uninstall Firefox when a hacker is using the browser to get to your computer? Please he won't let me uninstall it from the add/remove programs list, it's making my comp go slowly


Disconnect your Internet connection first. If you're using wireless, turn off your wireless connection. If you're using wired, disconnect the wire first. If your computer is not connected to the Internet, no hacker can access it.

I wish to connect to my wireless network via my new dell laptop but the password i have entered is incorrect. the laptop is now connected to the internet/network but with limited accesss, when i try to...


Do you know now the password for your wireless??

If no then on the PC/laptop that it was orginally installed-click on start and run and type cmd which will open up command prompt.

Type in the black box -ipconfig...

Whatever the IP address is for your default gateway type it in Internet explorer which will open up your wireless router settings and you should be able to open up wireless security and find out what your password is..

When this is done disconnect from your wireless on the dell laptop and after disconnecting connect to your wireless again and enter your password and see if that fixes things.

Thanks

I have bought an acer laptop and it will not alow me to connect to the internet it says internet disconnected.


If you have a wireless network - get the wireless network name (aka SSID) and the security type (WPA/WEP) and its password/passphrase and the channel.

You can also try connecting the laptop hardwired to a router.

When i try to connect 2 the internet it says somthing about a network security key or phassphrase


Do you have a Wireless Internet Network. If you do, then go to your modem, and disconnect the power wire and plug out your Wireless Internet Network. Wait for about 10 seconds, then start reconnecting your internet modem and plug in your Wireless Internet Network. Sometimes all 4 green lights will appear.

If it said "network security key" or "passphrase". Then you should buy a USB Flash Drive.

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.

I have recently bought a Belkin 54G Mod Router so that I could use my laptop with wireless connection in another room while my PC remained wire connected. I have installed it as directed but I keep losing...


a couple of question for you, is your wireless secure or did you enable security features like wep or wpa, how many people authorise people are on your network. if not secure, secure your wireless network, hackers like to kick people off their own system, upgrade the firm ware on your router, for the latest compatibility it will fix issues that arise and finally do a bios upgrade on your laptop.

I need to pair my wireless keyboard with my mac.


you need to first press the button on the wireless transmitter, and then right after you pressed the button, find the same type of buttom from the bottom of your keyboard and press it. it should work now, if it doesnt try restarting your computer.

if it still doesnt work, repeat this. and make sure the batterys are good.

Iam trying to connect my laptop to the innet. i have wrt54g router.


Hi jjroyc

Let's see if we can get your laptop connected to the Internet.

First, I have some questions and a few instructions for you.

(01) Is this a new (to you) router?

(02) Do you already have one or more computers connecting successfully to the Internet using this router?

(03) If yes, are any of them connecting wirelessly?

(04) Have you recently (at another location for example) successfully connected this laptop to the Internet? If so, did you connect it "wired" or "wirelessly".

(05) Are you trying to connect your laptop to your router "wirelessly" or "wired"?

(06) If you are trying to connect the laptop wirelessly, turn off your laptop's wireless radio and connect the laptop to the router "wired" instead (using an "Ethernet Patch Cable"). Once we've established that the laptop is capable of connecting to the Internet via the simpler "wired" connection, then we'll move on to the more complex wireless connection.

(07) Please, go HERE to download the manual for your particular router. You will need to determine the version number of the WRT54G model 1st. There are instructions there that will guide you through this.

background: I move my wireless keybd/mouse between my desktop and laptop units.... All was fine until a few days ago when some update completely disabled my desktop... I think the wireless began malfunctioning about the same time.

Just now, I pressed the ?reconnect button? on the front of the keybd/mouse receiver then pressed the connect buttons on the back of each device and PRESTO!! the keybrd works!!!

I just typed this entire message with the wireless keybd.

I hope this helps someone
