Hi dear

try this

  1. Before you attempt to use any Wi-Fi network, find out what the SSID, Channel, Mode and WEP key are. Some Wi-Fi locations do not require a WEP key. Many Wi-Fi providers have this information on their web site or when you purchase access you will be provided the information.
  2. Ensure you have a firewall program installed and running. This will protect your data.
  3. Start up your laptop and once booted, look for the Wi-Fi network icon in the bottom right of the screen.
  4. Click on the Wifi Connection icon on bottom right of screen and you should see a window that indicates connection, strength and duration. Click on the Properties tab.

  6. The next window will show the type of networking card installed. Click on the Wireless Networks tab.

  8. Once the Wireless Network Connection Properties window is open you will have two options depending on how you set up your laptop.
    • If you do not see any networks listed in Preferred or Available networks, you will have to manually add the SSID. Click on Add. You will have to enter the SSID and WEP key (if required). Click OK and you should then see the network you just added in the Available networks box.

    • If you see the correct SSID showing in the Available Networks, then you need to click on Configure in order to enter the WEP key if that is required.

  9. In the next window, enter the SSID for the Wi-Fi network you want to access. Make sure you do not have CAPS lock or NUM lock while entering the information. If a network key is required, click on "Data Encryption and then enter the Network key you have been provided with. Again make sure you do not have CAPS or NUM lock on. Click OK when entered. If you have entered the key incorrectly a message will pop up and you will need to re-enter the key.

  10. Next go to Start - and where it says Connect To click on that and you should see choices like in the graphic below. Click on Wireless Network Connection and it shHome networking - 34b0a7b.jpg/li>

There are occasions when the connection doesn't work, in these cases check your firewall software and make sure it allows you to connect to the Wi-Fi network. To check this, disable your firewall software and check the connection again. If you can connect with the firewall program disabled, you change your settings. If your firewall program is not the problem check the SSID and WEP key information that you entered. Both of these are case sensitive. If you had obtained SSID information from the Internet, check with someone in the establishment to see if the SSID has been changed.

oke post in me back

i hope this usefull for you


thanks

What are the specifics of your network? Do you have a wireless router?

Are you attempting to connect wirelessly to another computer that is connected to the internet? If so, you may need to bridge the connections on the computer "in the middle".

I would really need more info to go on to assist.

The OS on the computer is vista.
I think you will need to change the advanced wireless settings on the wireless router.
you can try changing the following settings on the wireless router.
Beakon Interval = 75
RTS threshold = 2307
Fragmentation threshold - 2306
Reduce the MTU 1400.
change the wireless channel.

You can also add the network manually on the vista computer.
open network and sharing center ==> manage network connections
If you see your network listed then highlight the network and click remove at the top.
Now click ADD option at the top.
Then select the option add network manually.
enter the wireless network name and security settings of the wireless network and then try to connect.
to change the wireless settings you will need to open the set up interface of the router.

Lost internet connection,verizon guess was the card was bad


First thing are all the micro-filters installed and in the correct direction? If they are then it sounds like your DSL signal is borderline and when the phone rings it is getting knocked out. If that is the case you will need a tech to come out and test the line.

No wireless adapters in system


Try and reload the drivers for the device. Also check the control panel and under network connections. See if there is a wireless network adapter. You can also try and run add hardware and see if the system detects it. Once you have it detected, go into setup wireless network and install you network. Have any problems please post in forum.

Try to setup home wireless network to share two home computer


Connect the home wireless network router box to the main PC through an ethernet cable with the PC powered off and the home wireless router powered off, then power on the PC & the router. Vista should locate the new wireless network and follow the windows vista network setup procedures. After the wireless network has been detected you then while the second PC's power is shut off you connect dongle adapter to the PC power on and XP will locate the new adapter. You will probably have to enter your networks pin for the connection.
Get back to me when you complete these steps.
Try next time contacting me through an online chat session. We can resolve the issue quicker while chatting together.
