First thing to do is look on your laptop... all the way around the sides, for a network switch... most newer laptops have one to switch your wireless on and off...

if none or is on:
go to your control panel/System/Hardware/Device Manager


and see if your network card is giving off an error or is working properly..
from there you can uninstall the driver and reinstall it, or update it..
if that still doesnt help... reset your router, refresh and renew your ip....(open Start/Run...type CMD... then type ipconfig /release.... then type ipconfig /renew

then click on the network icon in your control panel and try reconnecting to your network... readding your ssid and wep key if necessary...

hope this helps..

Cannot connect to wireless internet


First, do you have a wireless router button that enables or disables wireless internet? If so than it might have got accidently turned off. push it and see what pops up on screen. If it says enabled than it was turned of try connecting to internet again. If it says disabled than push again until it says enabled clearly that wasn't the problem. Next try going down to the two computers (right hand bottom corner) then double click them. This will bring up a wireless networks available, try refreshing this page. After refreshed if no networks are available than it may have to do with your internet provider. Try calling them to get a better detailed explanation.

Cannot connect to wireless networks, where is wireless switch


what laptop do you have?
some do not have switches.
are you fully sure that your particular machine contains a card.
If you are sure, open start then go to "Connect To", then select "Wireless Network Connections." If you network card is disabled, this action should enable it, as long as there is no switch. Once enabled, the window should pop up and allow you to select an available found wireless network.

Wi-fi connection


1. First, you have to make sure that the Wi-Fi of your laptop is turned on.

2. Make sure that there's an available wireless network in your area so that you can test if the computer can detect any available network.

3. If you're running Win XP, right-click the wireless icon on your system tray and select "View available wireless networks"

4. If you can't detect any wireless network, right-click the wireless icon on your system tray and select Open Network Connections.

5. Right-click the Wireless Network Connection icon and make sure to enable it.

6. If it's already enabled, try to disable it and then re-enable it.

7. If you can't still detect any wireless network, try this:
- Click the Start > Run > type msconfig > hit Enter

8. Locate the Wireless Zero Configuration and click on it once.

9. Once it's highlighted, locate the Start button on the upper left hand corner of that screen.

10. After starting the Wireless Zero Configuration (WZC), try to detect the wireless network again.

Go into your network settings and disable the ethernet and enable the wireless, you can also press Function F2 to enable wireless on a laptop. You may also try setting up wireless connection from the network settings if it still will not connect. Also you should be sure the network is not secured, and that your browser is told to never dial a connection.
