Question about Computers & Internet

Gateway NV54 Series laptop won't connect wirelessly? Drivers and such recognize the router and its networks, but won't connect :\ I used this computer to set up the router; ipod also can't detect the networks I've set up... The computer and other devices do connect with an ethernet, however, dragging an ethernet around behind myself and being tethered to one spot can get incredibly annoying Would an external device (like an internet-detecting usb device) help? I actually don't know where the problem is, and I have done a decent amount of poking around and troubleshooting... :\ Please help :( Thanks :)

Hi,

Did you asign a security Key for the wireless network? If so, Try without setting up one If still doesn't work then get a different router (has to be B,G,N compatible). Also, when setting up the security key make sure to choose WPA personal as an encryption methode(this one works most of the time for most older and newer laptop)

Thanks

Is either an N router or AC wifi router compatible with a Gateway NV54 laptop running Windows 7? My old G router is dead & need to buy new one.


Linksys is a good router that will automatically switch based on your devices. They run about $150. Is that out of your range?

I would suggest Linksys - AC1200 Smart Wi-Fi Router

I just used recovery disk to restore back to factory setting for acer aspire 7741Z. Now it won't recognize my wireless router


To connectyour computer to a wireless router, you click the Refresh networklist, then Choose your wireless network and then click Connectto your secured Wireless Network, it will asks for a Network Keybefore allowing you to connect into your wireless network. This NetworkKey is either the WEP, or WPA or WPA2 Encryption key that is used toconfigure the Wireless Router. The Passphrase is an alternate way tosetup the Encryption key.
When you are requested for a Network Key, you can just enter the Passphrasethat was used to configure the Encryption key in the wireless router.http://www.fixya.com/support/r5270415-network_password_network_addressFor information on securing your wireless network,configuring the wireless router and configuring the wireless card in thelaptop/computer, please click on this link and follow my instructions :-http://www.fixya.com/support/r3559128-wireless_router_security

Can't connect to internet the internet. My modem is working okay on another pc.Previously I could connect. I'm using GATEWAY NV54 laptop on Windows 7 Home premium


Have you received Windows 7 installed at the time of purchase? If not, check the compatibility with Windows 7. Check your Ethernet adapter with LAN for its proper functioning. Try using latest driver for Ethernet adapter from the laptop manufacturer. If the adapter is OK, restore the system to previous date on which it used to work or reinstall the operating system as a last resort.

I have a Gateway T-series (Model:W350A) laptop. I just reinstalled Windows Vista and now the computer is not recognizing the built in wireless card. How do I get it to recognize it? Or how do I install the...


Plug in an ethernet cable into your ethernet card port on the left hand side of your laptop. When it connects to the internet click on the Windows update icon in the system tray. It should show you a Realtek Wireless RTL8187b wireless adapter driver update. Install it, you may need to reboot, but in any case you will have wireless networks available to you and you can pull out the ethernet cable. Good luck.

Unable to establish a wireless internet connection


Does your computer normally recognize other access points? Example, free wifi in some bookstores in fast food restaurants. If it does, check and make sure the wireless router is on. Also, plug the PC into the router with a network cable, determine the gateway IP address, enter that into your browser, and make sure the SSID is being broadcast. If you don't know how to do this, the following links may help:

The d-link support will help with your specific router.
