My huawei 5830 only works when is connected into the laptop, but when i try on wireless it says i dont have an ip add and i cant get one
Have you configured the Wireless settings and also DHCP settings of your device?
Also, the TCP/IP network settings for the wireless connection on your laptop should be to obtain IP address automatically (which is default).
I'd suggest going to the following webpage where configuration is described step by step. Ignore the mobile network settings, as they are specific to the mobile network used, and are correct in your case, since you can work using wired connection. Concentrate on the DHCP and Wireless Basic & Security settings. The choices shown are for WPA2 encryption and are the best to use. For a pre-shared key (passphrase) use something hard to guess. I would also suggest changing the SSID (name of your wireless network) to something less obvious.
Once you've done the configuration and saved it, disconnect the device and try to find on your laptop the wireless network with the name (SSID) you configured, and connect to it.
