Next to your clock on your notebook is there an icon that looks like a computer monitor with a radio signal to the right of it?

If so move the mouse over to it and press view available wireless networks.

Im not sure how to scan for it on the Wii. I would check to see if there is a scan funtion on it to look for it.

Does a Wii require a wireless network adaptor or is it built in?

    Is the wireless turned on the notebook?

    Its been awhile since I've have used that router.

    What are the gateway setting on your computers wired to your router?

  • Tim Babcock
    Tim Babcock Jun 13, 2008

    Press the reset button and hold it down for 10 seconds. It's located in the back of the router.

    You need to find out what the gateway is to turn on the wireless settings.

    To do this go to the control panel. Select network. Find the icon for the network connection. Double click on the icon. Press the support tab. The default gateway setting is the address to your router.

    Type that address into internet explorer. Type in the admin user id and password and enable wireless networking.

    You can scan in the router admin to see what wireless connections are on right now. If your Wii is hooked up, it should display on the screen.

    Make sure mac filtertering is turned off.

Wireless connection fails on acer E1-571

Wireless problems can have various causes. Do other devices in your network work fine (other notebooks, smartphones)? And have you tested your Acer in other networks, like in a friends house, etc? If your notebook fails anywhere you use it, it may have a faulty wireless adapter (altough that's very rare). I would try to remove and reinstall the wireless driver and if that don't solve it, reinstall the OS (you could also have a virus problem). If the notebook works fine in other places, it could be your wifi router. Try turning it off and on.

I got Fujitsu Siemens AMILO pro V1000 laptop , the problem is there is wireless device inside the laptop but i can't see it in my computer .....> hard drive ...> device manager .... > network...


A wireless hard drive? Wouha, you're lucky...
1. It's possible that the wireless adapter is disabled in the bios -> enable it.
2. Maybe it's only disabled in the device manager -> enable it.
3. It can be that the drivers for the adapter aren't installed -> install them.

Hope helps.

HP DV6000 no wireless internet

Hard to say when I dont know the exact model.

If it is an Atlantis(DV6000-6499) it is most likely the mainboard, and it might be coverd by an extended warranty.

If it is an Ares(DV6500-6999) you should try updatigng th BIOS first. If that doesnt help i would go for another WLAN card. It might also be a defective mainboard, but that doesnt happen as often on Ares models as Atlantis.

You may want to check the wireless security settings ie. (WEP / WPA /WPA2...etc) on the router, certain settings don't always work well with the macintosh, try changing them and that should help your problem.

The lights are on but the linksys is not working

Certainly if the conection directly from the router to the computer is not working then the wireless won't work. So that's where I'd start. Cable connections could be an issue. The connection without the router works I assume. Make sure you are connected correctly. You need ethernet cabling to the ethernet, networking connections to and from the internet device to the computer and into and out of the router. When you get the direct router connections working you can solve your wireless problems.
