My laptop is Lenovo G460, i just want to ask if when you say laptop is it understood to be wi-fi?


Hello. I understand that you are asking if all laptops come with wifi built in. Nowadays, just about all laptops have wifi built into them. If you are looking at an older laptop, check the specifications. You can also just post the model of the laptop you are looking at and we will be happy to check for you. Understand that just because the laptop has wifi, does not mean you can connect to internet unless you have a wireless network you can connect to.

Thanks for using Fixya!

I would like to know when it say laptop with built in wireless. Does that mine i already got internet service on it. Or i have to buy USB modem.


Hello Blac,

All the laptops available in market have built in wireless 802.11 b/g/n or 802.11 b/g/n Bluetooth® wireless networking. It means that you can access the internet via Wi-Fi or through Wi-Fi hotspots. In wireless connectivity you do not require the wired connection to access the internet. In home you can connect the laptop via wireless connection using the home networking router available in market. The advantage of wireless connection is that you can use the internet in your home anywhere with in 100 meters of range with proper wireless signals. You will require to get the internet connection from the ISP(Internet Service Provider).

My laptop is lenovo b460. I have the wireless switch on and it is showing that wireless connections are available. But it does not show the available networks. Please suggest some solution.


There are two ways to view available wireless connections.
1. Thru windows: press Start>Connect to>enter.

2. Lenovo has proprietary software installed called access connections. If this is enabled it should be accessible thru: Start>All Programs>Access Connections. If not enabled it also should be available thru the Control Panel.

I dont know to use wifi in LENOVO 3000 Y410


Hi. First things is you should have a wireless router there or you are at a certain hotspot where there is a free wireless internet access e.g Starbucks. Procedure below:

  • 1 Purchase a wireless router that fits your needs and price range.
  • 2 Follow the router's manual to set up the router and its Internet connection, which will probably require connecting a wired client to the router. Once the wireless router is set up, the wired connection is no longer necessary. However, it's best to leave the wired client connected if it's a separate computer from that on which you're going to set up WiFi. If something goes wrong, you can access the administration interface again.
  • 3 Gather information from the setup process. In order to set up the wireless client, you will need to know the service set identifier (SSID), the Wireless Encryption Protocol (WEP) key and the channel and mode.
  • 4 Boot up the laptop and plug in the WiFi card. This will not be necessary if your laptop has an integrated WiFi card.
  • 5 Install any drivers needed to use the WiFi card. Insert the disc that came with the WiFi card and follow the on-screen installation process. Most discs will trigger a new hardware wizard that makes installation extremely simple.
  • 6 Double-click on the "WiFi Connection" icon. It can be found in the system tray at the bottom of the laptop screen.
  • 7 Click on "Properties."
  • 8 Select the "Wireless Networks" tab.
  • 9 Use the "Add" button at the bottom of the dialog if your WiFi network isn't in the "Available Networks" section.
  • 10 Click on "Configure" when you see your network's SSID in the "Available Networks."
  • 11 Enter your network's SSID and WEP key.
  • 12 Click on "Start," then choose "Connect To" and "Wireless Network Connection." Your computer should now be able to access the WiFi network. If the WiFi network is connected to the Internet, it should also be able to connect to the Internet.

    How to use wi fi in lenovo Y410


    For your laptop if it has a built in wireless card like most do now all you have to do is go into your networks connections and select "connect to a network" or if you see in the middle part of the window "wireless connections are available" click that link choose the connection, put the password in if needed and then you should be connected and ready to go. If you want to do it on a home internet connection then you'll need a wireless router i suggest netgear or linksys they aren't too exspensive and work pretty well. They come with all the things you'll need with instructions on how to setup the wireless network.

    Internet/network problems


    Connecting the laptop to your network using a network cable, does this solve your Internet problems?
    Does this works without the Internet connection dropping out?
    If the wireless connection has a low signal, try positioning the wireless router or the laptop to get a better signal strength.
    Also try reinstalling your wireless driver.

    Lenovo 3000 Y410 Wifi Problem


    That is odd, I've never seen anything like that. I asked a few of the other top experts, and they've never heard of anything like that happening either. There are no adjustments for this type of thing. It could be too strong. How far away from your house can you get with the machine still seeing the wireless? I hate to say it, but you may just have to live with it, and, honestly, I think it's more their problem than yours. I'll look around some more on this, since you've got me curious, and if I find anything I'lllet you know.
