    Hi. Sorry for the lack of info!



    1) Dell Inspiron running Vista

    2) There was a WEP key automatically assigned which I have tried entering on the laptop whilst trying to manually setting up a network but still doesnt seem to work

    3) Yes, the WiFi indicator light was lit when i was trying to set it up



    We've somehow managed to connect to someone elses WiFi (acidentally!!!) but when I search for available networks the laptop cannot seem to locate our router even though all the software has been loaded onto the desktop and the appropriate ready lights are showing on the router. Will I also need to install the software on the laptop? The instructions that came with it tell you nothing about how to actually achieve a wireless connection, hence the confusion!



    Thanks for trying to help, greatly appreciated!!

    The router is a Buffalo AirStation WHR-G125, described as a Wireless AP Router with Bridging.

1. What brand and model of laptop?
2. Did you put an WEP key on the buffalo wireless router?
3. Are you sure the WiFi is turned on, on your laptop?

    ok - Since your laptop has found and logged onto another wifi network, there is nothing more to do with your laptop (till at least it sees it).



    Now onto your router, what make and model is it and we will go on from there. Your router itself may not have the wireless turned on, or is not working properly.



    Once I know what model your router is, we will go over setting on it with you...

    Open a web browser window and enter 192.168.11.1 in the URL field and press enter. You will get a prompt to enter a username and password to access your router settings. You should enter "root" (without quotes) as the username and leave the password field blank, then click OK.



    Make sure there is a wireless radio check box is checked. (should look like box below)




    Wthout this done, your laptop will be unable to see the wireless network.

Removing bluetooth chip


Without knowing what the desktop computer motherboard is, I\'d only be guessing as to location of Wi-Fi chipset.
However even if I knew the motherboard manufacturer name, and model number; the point is Moot.

A) You remove that Wi-Fi chip, and kiss the motherboard goodbye.
It\'s designed into the circuitry of the motherboard.

Isn\'t going to be jumper wires taking it\'s place, and making connections to circuit traces on the motherboard.

B) Do you have a wireless router?
Dunno.
Do you have a wireless connection set up?
No.

You can use just a LAN connection. (Hard wired)

C) Suggest if having a Bluetooth option on your motherboard is not an option then use a different motherboard that doesn\'t have that option.

How do I start bluetooth on the qosmio g25-av13?


Try the ff:

1. Are you also using a wireless internet? If you are and you cannot also connect on wireless, make sure that the wireless is enabled on your laptop. On the left side of the laptop there is a on/off switch push the switch to on. (beside the usb port).

2. if it is already on, make sure that the bluetooth is enabled also, you can check it on control panel, system, hardware, device manager, bluetooth, right click on bluetooth driver, if you see enable bluetooth click on it, if you see"disable bluetooth" that means it is already enabled.

3. If the above is already configured, lastly, look for the bluetooth icon (bluetooth manager) on the lower part of the screen on the taskbar/tray if you see the bluetooth icon, right-click on it then click "Enable Bluetooth Radio". Now, if there is no bluetooth icon on the tray at the lower right of the screen, go to Start, Toshiba, Bluetooth, Bluetooth Settings, inside the Bluetooth SEttings, click on Bluetooth, Options, CLick on Enable Bluetooth Power, also, inside the Tray Icon (still inside Bluetooth Settings) select an icon so you can always see the status of your bluetooth on the Tray and you don;t need to do and check everything everytime you cannot connect via Bluetooth.

Hope this helps.
