Do you remember installing a wireless adpater on the pc that you upgraded to win xp? if not, then you really need to get a wireless receiver. Or you can also check you network connections under control panel, see if you have a wireless network connection under LAN or highspeed internet, if not you really need to get a wireless receiver for your computer.

I have a dell latitude cpx computer i m tryin to figure out how to hook my wireless internet to it it dont have a place for an ethernet to go


This laptop does not have ethernet or wireless capabilities. You can't connect this to a wireless network.
You would need to buy a PC extension card and use it from the extension connector slot.

How can i do wireless connection..........................plz tell meeeeeeeeee


First, check if the wireless switch on the computer is ON.
Second, you should see a blue light on thwireless indicator.
Third, press and hold "Fn" key and press "F5" (this enables/disables wireless capability of the computer)
Last, try to detect wireless networks by going to START>CONTROL PANEL>NETWORK AND INTERNET/NETWORK AND SHARING CENTER/NETWORK CONNECTIONS>click on "connect or disconnect" and it will display available networks.

How can I turn on the wireless capability on my Asus G60VX laptop? the switch on the front left is on and still nothing. trouble shooting says wireless capability is turned off. it was working fine untill...


I can figure out that your laptop runs Windows Vista. Go to Control panel, then Network and Sharing centre and then go to Manage Network Connections and see if the Wireless Network Connections icon is disabled, make sure it is enabled and not connected. Try disabling and enabling it again. If still no go, try to manually turn off the wireless switch and turn it back ON. Check the light status (if any), confirm the error message too. If still, it seems not to be working, then the internal switching might have gone bad. You need to get the laptop serviced.

Hello,

You would need to purchase a wireless adaptor to add to your daughter's pc. Once installed alone with the drivers/software, you should have no problem getting her connected wireless.

Good Luck

I have a 2wire router, if I purchase a couple new laptop computers which are wireless ready, do I need to purchase wireless adaptors for networking?


No, not at all.
I can't even think of a newer laptop model that comes without wireless capability anymore.

Which 2wire router you have, determines the speed of your wireless network.Make sure when you buy a laptop, that it's wireless capabilities match those of the router. The standard today is 802.11g, backwards compatible with 802.11b. 802.11n is a new standard (backwards compatible to 802.11b/g), and both router and computer have to support this standard in order to use it.

Wireless network


If you were using Desktop PCs, then usually you need to install a WiFi Card to make it WiFi Capable (its like a LAN Card but with Antenna, or you can simply purchase a USB WiFi device if you dont want to open your Computer. if you were use a Laptop check for WiFi setting or switch on your Laptop and turn it on, make sure your WiFi driver is installed properly.
