When you say picking up the wireless connection, you mean you are associated to the Router? If you goto Start, then Run, and type in "CMD" and press enter it will open a new window. Then type in "ipconfig /all" into the window and let me know what it says. You should have an IP address, Subnet Mask, Default Gateway, and at least one DNS server. If any of those are missing its not going to work.

DOESN'T DETECT WIFI


The wireless feature on a Gateway computer allows you to connect to a network without the hassle of cables. This allows you to browse the Internet conveniently wherever you are. Gateway computers rely on Windows operating systems, which come with a built-in feature to manage your wireless connection. This feature makes turning off your wireless connection an easy process if, for a moment, you prefer to connect to the Internet using a wired connection.

Click the Windows "Start" menu and click the "Control Panel." Click Network and Internet Connections > Network Connection, if you are using a Windows XP Gateway computer. You should see your wireless connection. For Windows Vista and 7 Gateway computers, click "Network and Sharing Center" from the Control Panel and click "Manage Wireless Connections." You should see your wireless connection. Right-click your wireless connection and click "Disable" to turn it off. Close "Network Connections" when you are done.

Why won't laptop connect to wireless internet? Wifi is working, another computer in home is fine


are you at home or Starbuck? location matters.
so, the compaq must be setup correctly.
your router broadcasts the SSID name seen by you on all devices, see that on the Compaq (y/n)
then you must pick wep. or wpa, or wpa2 encyption mode.
as set in your router, we cant see inside you router only you can
then set the passphrase to what you router wants.
is this XP, windows
does the wifi chip look ok in device manager?
Is XP infected.? with malware as all are now.

never post about computers lacking what operating system you have, or answers will be wrong, even all answers.

Try rebooting both the modem and the router. It could be that the modem didn't pick up it's ip number when the internet went down. Then try pluggint you computer directly into the modem first to make sure it is setup and working properly. Then plug in the router (to the modem) and the PC plugged in directly to the router and check.

Once you have it connecting at that point then check the wireless settings on both the router and the pc. Then enable the wireless on the pc, unplug the LAN and switch to wireless network on the pc and see if it won't work.

If it works plugged in on the LAN but then not on the wireless then either your configuration isn't correct (ie wrong gateway ip number...gateway should be the same ip number as the router...ie 192.168.***.***) or perhaps the wireless part of the router died. It is possible for the wireless to die and the LAN (hard wired connection) to still work.

Unable to connect to the my wireless Internet


Try "rebooting" your internet. If it's fed through a router, disconnect the power to the router, as well as all of the connections, then reconnect them. Re-connect the power last.
Also, try moving closer to the source of your wireless internet. Sometimes the Dsi won't pick up on the signal because it has a weaker wireless receiver than a computer or most devices that will connect.

My computers are picking up the wireless but can't connect to the internet


It's a good thing that your computers are picking up the Wifi connection. But the connection to the Internet is another matter. Call tech support of your ISP (Internet Service Provider) to make sure that your Modem (Cable or DSL) is configured to connect to the Internet at all.
