Install a wireless network adapterIn areas that are served by a wireless network, you can connect to a computer network without using a cable, and surf the Internet or connect with other computers. To connect to a wireless network, your computer needs a wireless network adapter.
Many new computers-especially laptops-come with wireless adapters. Before using your computer, check to see if it already has a wireless network adapter.
If your computer doesn't have a wireless network adapter, you can install one.
Install a wireless USB network adapter. Most people prefer this type of adapter for any type of computer, because it's easy to install.
Install a wireless CardBus or CF network adapter. For portable computers, this type of adapter (also called a PCMCIA or PC Card) is easier to travel with than a USB adapter, because it is often smaller and fits securely in the PC Card slot on the side of the computer.
Install a wireless internal network adapter. If you have a desktop computer, you may prefer an internal adapter so that you can use the USB port to connect another accessory.
The type of adapter you install depends on your computer and your level of expertise.
How to determine if you already have a wireless network adapterMany portable computers manufactured after 2000 have wireless networking built in. However, because the antenna is hidden inside the computer, it's not easy to see.
To see which network adapters are currently installed in your computer
1.
Click Start, and then click Control Panel.

Click Network and Internet Connections.
3.
Under or pick a Control Panel icon, click Network Connections.

Microsoft Windows XP displays your network adapters. Wireless network adapters are labeled Wireless Network Connection. If an adapter displays a red X, it is disconnected. If the Network Connections window is blank, your computer doesn't yet have a wired or wireless network adapter.

I m unable to use my wirless internet.my belkin802.11gadapter is not connecting for internet


First thing to do is to re-configure the wireless router that you have. Change the name and wireless password. After that, re-install the Wireless adapter on your desktop. Make sure that you will clean all the files installed on your system. Then test if other wireless device can connect to it.

Fujitsu siemens not seeing wireless networks


Go Fujitsu Website and support, download drivers and download the correct WIRELESS NETWORK DRIVER and/or ADAPTER drives. Select RUN and reinstall them (all).

If that does not work then it may be the network adapter which may be behind a back flap. Remove and Replace with same part. Actually its easier just to buy a USB or PCMCIA Network Adapter from Radio Shack to plug in to your Notebook, comes with software and driver installation disk about $40. This is generally the best solution as it works independantly as a "plug in", easier to install if notebook's built in Network Adapter is defective.
