Check your firewall settings. Also what brand of wireless router/switch are you using?

In the Network Connections window, right click on the USB adapter and select Properties. Select the "Wireless Networks" tab. In the Preferred networks area, select the name of your wireless network so that it is highlighted. Then press the Remove button. Click OK.

Windows should now inform you that it has located an available network. Try connecting into it now.

Can't connect to friends network


Hi,

They are four reasons why your wireless would say "acquiring network address" and later changing into "Limited or no connectivity"

1) Invalid WEP/WPA Encryption key.
2) Mac Filtering, Your friends might have disallowed the mac address of your laptop or he it might be filtered.
3) Short IP range mentioned on the router (May your friend has specified a short ip address range for DHCP)
4) Invalid configuration for wireless on Windows Vista

To this problem, do this on your laptop

1) Start >> Control Panel >> Network and Sharing Center (Classic View) >> Manage Wireless network>> remove the wireless network by clicking and then right clicking on top of it and remove.
2) Now try to connect again to the wireless network, reenter the key and that should do it.

If this doesn't work, then probably you have to ask your friend about the 2 and 3 possible cause listed above.


Good luck!
And Thanks.

Is there a manual shut off switch to disable the wireless search mode on an Acer laptop?


I assume you want to stop vista from automatically connecting to wireless networks other than yours.......try this:

Open Network and Sharing Center, click Manage wireless networks, click on your "home" network & make sure that Connect automatically when this network is in range is checked. Now do the same for any other connection that is listed but uncheck the Connect automatically when this network is in range.


Go to Start > Network > Network and Sharing Center
click Manage network connections under 'Tasks'
Right-click Wireless Network Connection
Select Properties.
In the Wireless Network Connection Properties dialogue box, click the
Wireless Networks tab.
Select other wireless network like "Y5ZONE", "PCCW" and click Properties
Click Connection tab
Uncheck the box "Connect when this network is in range"

Hope this helps.....

Nokia 770 internet settings....


hello there! thanks for using Fixya.com!

Setting up a wireless connection is easy. The Connection Manager searches for any wireless networks within range and displays their signal strength, and whether the networks are encrypted. The 770 supports both WEP and WPA encryption, so provided you know the network key, it can connect to any wireless network.

When it's out of range of a network, the Nokia can connect to your mobile phone using Bluetooth, letting you browse the Internet over GPRS.

Once you've exchanged Bluetooth passkeys with your phone, you have to manually enter your network provider's GPRS settings into the 770. This has the potential to be a real pain in the neck, but fortunately the 770's mobile settings wizard already knows GPRS settings for the major mobile networks, which takes much of the pain out of the process.

Loading Web pages over GPRS is far slower than over a wireless network, but it's quick enough to look up the occasional bit of information and certainly fast enough to send and receive e-mails.

Hope this will help you!
