Did you set up your wireless connection using a wired internet connection. i have a netgear wireless system and tried to set it up without being 'wired' but you can not do it that way. you have to be connected to set it up, then you can configure it, and after that it should be ok. i actually went back to a 'wired' connection cos the netgear was very unreliable

Why does my hudl 2 show an exclamation mark ! Next to my internet connected indicator cone like symbol.


Good Evening,
It is not fully connecting to the Internet. Try going into your Wi-Fi settings and forgetting the network and then try to rejoin the network. If that doesn't work, try accessing Internet from another location, if that works, then you need to inspect your router to make sure that the Wi-Fi is configured correctly. Please post your router make and model and I can provide insight if that appears to be the issue.

Forgotten password for wifi network


Which operating system ??
Your wireless Internet password is the encrypted security pass phrase that was set up when you installed your wireless router.

Your router allows you to access the Internet.
If you have access to more than one wireless network, you may need to remember multiple passwords.

If you happen to forget one password, you have two options: reset your password or locate the current password.

Windows 7 allows you to view the security characters of all your wireless network passwords.
Click the "Wi-Fi" network icon located on the Window's taskbar.


Right-click the name of your network's "SSID" name and select "Properties" from the drop-down menu.


Click the "Security Tab." The network security key is now visible but unreadable.


Click the "Show Characters" check box and this will reveal your wireless password.

or
Reset My WiFi Password

Wireless networking is a common feature in homes and offices.
Wireless routers provide access to a single Internet source, and wireless passwords ensure that only select users can access the network.

If a password is forgotten or lost, the password can be recovered or reset by accessing the router's Web-based settings menu.

Most wireless routers also have a reset button, which is capable of returning the router to its default settings which includes resetting the password.

Connect to your Wi-Fi or attach your computer directly to the router with an Ethernet cable.
Open your Web browser.

Enter the default address of your router.
The default address is listed in your user manual or on the product website.

Linksys and 3Com routers typically use "192.168.1.1" while Netgear routers use "192.168.0.1."
Enter your username and password.

Many routers use "admin" for the username and password by default.
Locate the wireless security settings. Disable the wireless security.

Reset to Factory Defaults

Locate the reset button on your router.
Typically the reset button is a small indented hole on the back of the device.

Insert a long thin object such as a paperclip and hold down the reset button for 30 seconds to revert the router to its factory default settings.

Open your Web browser.
Enter the default address of your router.

The default address is listed in your user manual or on the product website.
Linksys and 3Com routers typically use "192.168.1.1" while Netgear routers use "192.168.0.1."

Enter your username and password.
Many routers use "admin" for the username and password by default.

Locate the wireless security settings and add security as necessary.

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.

Will t180 recieve wi fi


No , not as your computer is configured.

The networking in your computer is a integratet Marvell 88E8056 Gigabit (RJ-45 LAN connector)
It means that you have to cable your network card to your router / wi fi router/accespoint.

However, you can purchase a wireless usb network adapter to get access to your wi fi router/access point without using a cable.

Setup belkin wireless network


Hi,
1.Connect a Cat5 cable into the Ethernet port on the back of your cable or DSL modem. Plug the other end of the cable into the "Connect to Modem Internet/WAN" port on the back of the Belkin Router.
2.Connect a Cat5 cable into the "Ethernet" port on the back of any desktop or stationary computers and then plug the other end of the cable into one of the LAN ports on the back of the Belkin Router. Start with port one and work your way up with subsequent computer connections.
3.Turn the Belkin Router on by plugging the router into a power outlet. Allow 30 seconds for the router to fully boot up. All computers tethered to the modem via a Cat5 cable have access to the Internet.
4.Open the Wi-Fi Wizard on your laptop and turn on the Wi-Fi antenna. Once turned on, the Wizard finds all network connections in your area. Connect to your network to establish an Internet connection. Complete this step for each computer not tethered to the Belkin Router with a Cat5 cable.

Thanks for using Fixya

As soon as i went from a 'B' to a 'G' router, my internet has slowed dow , worse than dial-up


The Belkin Wireless G Router lets users share files and a broadband Internet connection among their computers-without using networking cables. It features 802.11g technology that makes accessing files and networked peripherals-such as hard drives, printers, CD-ROMs, and DVDs-easier than ever. 802.11g technology provides you with networking speeds nearly five times faster than the current Wi-Fi (802.11b) standard. An integrated, 4-port 10/100Base-T Ethernet switch also allows you to connect wired computers to the network. 802.11g technology is the easiest wireless network to implement. The Router uses the wireless 802.11g 2.4GHz standard to offer you 400 feet of wireless coverage. 802.11g technology is backward compatible with the 802.11b Wi-Fi networking standard, so it allows you to implement faster wireless technologies in combination with existing 802.11b Wi-Fi networks.

so if use "g" type router the speed cannot be slow there may be some other problem....that let the internet speed down....check that......

Hi, my problem is that i can't connect, because i don't find a device owership password... what is it and where do i find it....


I had this same problem, I hope my solution doesn't double post.

Go to your router settings - do this by typing in the address to your router into the address bar of your internet browser (you may have to do this on a computer that is connected to the internet). For example I have a dynex router the address is 192.168.2.1. Google your router brand and you should be able to find your address. Once you do this, go to the left side of the screen and find a category entitled "Wi-Fi Protection Setup." Click on this and disable this. Once you do this you should be able to surf the net wi-fi style.

Dell initially told me I needed to back up my computer and reinstall windows xp. I said to hell with that and figured it out myself. Oh they also wanted me to call Dell on Call which I'm sure costs money. Any other problems let me know if this doesn't work for you.
