Wireless not working

Hi,

I am having trouble connecting to the internet via wireless. The card will enable but only displays that there are no available wireless networks in the area, when I know for certain there is one (another computer can connect to it). I don't know where the switch is to turn on the wireless card so I'm not sure if this is the problem or not. Also, it won't even search for new networks when I press check available wireless networks, it just sits there. Please help!

Try this
“Right click” on “my computer” icon and select "manage"
then go to services and make sure your "Windows Zero Config" service is started
Chances are it is probably not since to use the windows wireless utility this service must be started unless you’re using the wireless utility that comes with your card then it might not be started depending on the brand of card you have
either way start the service then go to network connections and right click your wireless connection and choose "view avail wireless networks" and if it says windows can not display networks then that’s cool just click "change advanced settings" on the lower left side of that window and then when the next window pops up just go to the "wireless networks" tab at the top and then check the box that says "let windows configure my wireless networks" and then click ok to close the window
Now you should be able to click view available wireless networks and if the windows zero Config service is started the you should see a list no problem if it is not started then there will be an empty list like the one you describe

First make sure the Wireless LAN card driver is installed. Then go to device manager and make sure the Wireless LAN card is enabled. If not, right click on the Wireless LAN card icon and select enable. Once that is done you should be able to search for wireless networks. If a wireless router is not broadcasting the SSID for the wireless network, the Wireless LAN card will not be able to locate the network during the search. If that is the case, you will need to set up the connection manually. If you can see the correct wireless network during the search but still can't connect to the network, it may not be an open network, so make sure you have the correct security settings for the network you want to connect to. If you did not set up the wireless network, you will need to get the security information from the network administrator.

Your problem may appear from a not properly enabled WLAN card.
Make sure the Wi-Fi swithc is in ON position and on your laptop keyboard try the FN+F8 combination to have displayed the wireless card status. The WLAN card has to be ENABLED to be able to connect to the Internet. The combination done will make appear on your display a window with some options available; choose that option that enables your wireless card.
Also check in your computer's DEVICE MANAGER if your WLAN card is working properly. To do so follow these simple steps:
1. START and click on SYSTEM;
2. in SYSTEM option click on DEVICE MANAGER;
3. on DEVICE MANAGER option go at NETWORK ADAPTERS and see if there your wireless card is indicated and it shows that it is working PROPERLY;
4. if an UNKNOWN DEVICE is indicated then try to find the right driver for you notebook model and WLAN card model;
5. install the driver then REBOOT and recheck in DEVICE MANAGER if your WLAN card is displayed properly this time.

Hi there, I am a second user of a Toshiba Satellite Laptop & although I can achieve a local internet connection via an ethernet lead from my WiFi router when connected to the system, I am failing to...


If you are sure the internal wifi card is no good then you can use an external pc card (pcmcia)that plugs into the side (make sure you have the driver) try a few things first
If your trying to get on the internet with a wireless connection.and running WINDOWS, .and I am assuming you DO have a wireless router all set up and configured to broadcast the signal (not hidden) ....first we have to determine if the problem is at the router or at the laptop AND at what point its getting stuck ... so first try this

try resetting the router (unplug for a few minutes) try --be sure the wifi switch is enabled on the netbook---try---go to CONTROL PANEL>NETWORK CONNECTIONS--right click oin your wifi card and choose properties--highlight INTERNET PROTOCOL and choose properties and be sure "OPTAIN IP ADDRESS AUTOMATICALLY" is checked--Does the laptop "SEE" the router?
You will need your SSID to logon to the router(internet)

Do my computer have wireless internet


The Acer Aspire 5315-2153 notebook was designed with a built-in 802.11b/g Wireless LAN card. The wireless card is typically enabled using a small toggle switch located at the front, left of the PC.

The switch moves to the left and has what appears to be a "satellite dish" icon stenciled just to the right of it.

Toggle once to turn the card on and again to turn it off.

Can't connect to internet


there is a switch on the front or side that needs to be put to the on position, if it's anything like mine it is very small and hared to see. If you normally have a LED that tells you that the adapter is on, it's normally near that.

Wireless card in E1505 Dell not finding networks in range


The 1390 WLAN Minicard may not be configured to communicate with your wireless router.
Check the wireless router settings, (check the wireless settings on your other computer) and configure the 1390 WLAN with the same settings eg. SSID, WEP/WAP encryption, etc.
Is MAC address filtering enabled on your wireless router, if so add the MAC address of the 1390 WLAN to the MAC address list in the wireless router.

Check the TCP/IP properties of the 1390 WLAN card the Internet protocol should not have a fixed IP address, set it to Obtain an IP address automatically including the DNS.

Use the Ipconfig command to see the IP configuration of the network cards.

Use the Ping command to see if you can communicate with wireless router.
