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.

Gateway wireless keyboard detection


Insert the installation CD that came with your wireless keyboard set into your computer's CD-ROM drive.

Use the CD to install the drivers for the wireless peripherals.


Insert batteries into the keyboard .

Use a screwdriver to remove any screws that hold the battery bay covers closed.


Connect the wireless signal receiver to your computer.

Receivers for wireless keyboard and mouse sets usually use a USB connector.


Your computer will automatically detect the receiver.

Turn on your keyboard if the devices have power buttons.


Press the "Sync," "Connect" or "Pair" buttons on the keyboard , depending on your model.

If present, press the "Connect" button on the wireless signal receiver as well.

Your wireless keyboard set is now connected.


hope this helps

Have you installed all the softwares (drivers) that goes with your laptop? Some laptops have specific softwares that need to be installed to make the components (hardwares) work.

Wireless connection problem, I have a gateway T1631 laptop. I cant see any network within the range even though I place d next to the router, but I can connect to the internet through the ethernet drive.


I have seen this issue alot of times. Please make sure you wireless card is turned on. Sometimes the switch is on the front or the sides or you may have to push a function button + a wireless button. Take a look at you owners manual to be sure

I cannot set up my Linksys wireless router model number:WRT54GS to work properly. I have a desktop computer with Windows XP operating sysyem. I have three other laptop computers with wireless components


Hi,

The easiest would be to connect your desktop straight to your modem and verify that you can connect to the Internet. Do not use the LinkSys WRT54GS yet. Pop in the CD that came with the WiFi Router and run the setup wizard. Follow exactly on screen instructions. Verify that your desktop's networking is set to auto obtain IP address.

Alternately, you can try:
1. connect your desktop with a straight through LAN cable to Ethernet Port #1 of the WRT54GS;
2. set your desktop to use IP-192.168.1.10, Subnet Mask-255.255.255.0, Default Gateway-192.168.1.1;
3. open a browser and goto 192.168.1.1. use the LinkSys supplied username and password;
4. verify/configure/set the LinkSys to your preference;
5. for the time being do not use any security keyphrase, WEP WPA or MAC filter;
6. verify that your laptops could see the router's SSID;
7. verify that all laptops are set to auto obtain IP addresses;

If for some reason neither method will not work, pls post back with your modem's make & model.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

My toshiba computer does not work with my wireless internet


what brand of wireless modem you have, what os are you using?did you switch on the wireless in your laptop? sometimes we overlook the most simple things, it happens to me..
ok, you have to configure your laptop to connect to your wireless modem, how? just connect first your laptop with wire to the wireless modem, does it work? if it does work you can take the default gateway ip add from your pc by typing IPCONFIG on the command prompt , then type it in your internet explorer address bar.

example default gateway..... 192.168.1.254

and supply the username and password, you can now configure your wireless connection wep/wpa configuration.

I have been using my laptop from work at home using my links router for about four months. my router is connected to my home computer. The cable company intenet service we used changed servers and my son...


Are you trying to connect the laptop using wireless? If so, you probably don't have the wireless settings from your router setup on the laptop. If you have a Windows based computer, click START => RUN.., type CMD, then hit OK. A black DOS window will appear. Type IPCONFIG and hit ENTER. You should see something like this:

Connection-specific DNS Suffix . :
IP Address. . . . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.0.xxx
Subnet Mask . . . . . . . . . . . : 255.255.255.0
Default Gateway . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.0.1

Open your web browser and type in the address you see next to "Default Gateway" (in this example it's 192.168.0.1). This *should* be your router. Hit ENTER and you should connect to your router's web interface. From here you can find your wireless settings and match them on your laptop.


Laptops also usually have off/on switches for the wireless feature. Check to make sure you have the wireless card actually turned on. That is a simple mistake people make.


I hope this somehow helps.
