There are several reasons as to why your IEEE 802.11 a/b/g/n Wireless NIC may not be able to connect to a wireless network:

1. Antenna Orientation and distance from the wireless access point: If the wireless NIC is a PCMCIA card or a PCI card on the motherboard, make sure that it's antennae are configured in such a way that there's maximum reception.See the product manual for more details.
2. Inbuilt antennas for laptops: If the IEEE 802.11 a/b/g/n WiFi product is inbuilt into a laptop and there is no signal strength indicated on the device, your antennas may be loosely connected or out of line.Read the product assembly manual for more details on how to correct the problem, e.g id it's an Acer laptop, read more on the Acer's invilink signal boost technology.
3.External interference: If you are using your WiFi-equipped device near a microwave-transmitter device, eg a microwave oven, relocate the device elsewhere to eliminate the interference, as microwaves are in the same frequency spectrum as IEEE 802.11 a/b/g WiFi radio transmission standards, and interference is very likely.
4.Wrong encryption standard selected for the wireless network: Please ensure that the encryption standard selected on your WiFi configuration matches the same that's supported on the network(Read more on wireless network encryption standards such as WPA,etc).Please note that you cannot connect to an encrypted network without the correct key.
5.Optimized settings: For best connectivity, ensure that your WiFi card is configured to automatically raise it's roaming aggressiveness when connected to an infrastructure network with multiple access points.You may also optionally enable QoS tagging and packet offload options if supported.
6. Driver updates: It's always a good idea to update the card drivers from the manufacturer's website.Note that if your product is an OEM-based product, you need to get the OEM-based drivers for the product as their drivers may have more options built for the WiFi adapter.

I hope these solutions suggested above for you will work.

If your trying to get on the internet with a wireless connection.and running WINDOWS,(many problems with LINUX) .and I am assuming you DO have a wireless router all set up and configured to broadcast the signal (not hidden) ....first we have to determine if the problem is at the router or at the laptop AND at what point its getting stuck ... so first try this

try resetting the router (disconnect the power to it for a few minutes) next --be sure the wifi switch is enabled on the netbook---next---go to CONTROL PANEL>NETWORK CONNECTIONS--right click oin your wifi card and choose properties--highlight INTERNET PROTOCOL and choose properties and be sure "OPTAIN IP ADDRESS AUTOMATICALLY" is checked--Does the laptop "SEE" the router?
You will need your SSID to logon to the router(internet)
follow this is a link to a troubleshooting flow-chart-Do check it out
http://www.daileyint.com/hmdpc/laptop/wireless.gif


If you continue to have problem..indicate at what point in the flowchart it is getting stuck

If this was helpful, please indicate so, if not -comment back so we can dig further to resolve this

How to set up internet on Samsung Jet


Ensure that you have the appropriate network key code needed to enable you to access a secure Wi-Fi network.


If you are connecting to a secure Wi-Fi network with MAC address restrictions, you will require pre-authorisation for the router. You will need to find your Samsung Jet's MAC (Media Access Control) address. This is a 12-character code which may be needed by the network controller to enable the phone to connect. See Getting the Samsung Jet's MAC address below.


You can get to the Wi-Fi application either via the main menu or using a homescreen Wi-Fi Widget.
  1. To get to the Wi-Fi application via the main menu, press the MENU button (either on the home screen or the hexagonal button beneath)
  2. In the main menu, swipe your finger sideways to go through the menu pages until you see the Wi-Fi icon. Press to select.
  3. The Wi-Fi application opens.
  4. Alternatively, to use the Wi-Fi Widget, from standby, press the home screen. The Widget toolbar opens up.
  5. Scroll down to find the Wi-Fi Widget icon. Press the Wi-Fi Widget. The Wi-Fi Widget will pop up on the main screen.
  6. Press the Wi-Fi Widget on the main part of the display to launch the Wi-Fi application. The Wi-Fi application opens.
  7. Once in the Wi-Fi screen, press the large Wi-Fi button in the middle of the screen to turn it on. Wi-Fi is activated and the button turns blue.
  8. Press SEARCH Nearby Wi-Fi access points (APs) will appear as small circles on the display, with their names next to them.
  9. Press the circle representing the Wi-Fi Netowrk you want to connect to. An options panel appears.
  10. You can press CONNECT to connect to the network or press ADD if you want to add it to a list of preferred networks for easy access later.
  11. You are taken into a settings menu for the Wi-Fi access point. If the Wi-Fi access point requires a network key code, scroll down to the Network Key panel. Press to select.
  12. The numberpad appears. Type in the network key code and press DONE. You are returned to the previous settings screen. Press SAVE
  13. A list of connections appears. Press the back arrow button
  14. If you initially pressed CONNECT, the phone will connect to the selected Wi-Fi network and a confirmation message will appear. The display now shows the new connection, illustrated by blue dots linking the circles onscreen (Figure 15).
  15. If you initially pressed ADD, you will be returned to the Wi-Fi screen. Press the circle representing the Wi-Fi network you want to connect to. A pop up panel appears.
  16. Press CONNECT. You will be connected and the connection illustrated onscreen.
Press the back button to return to the home screen.


  1. From the home screen press MENU to enter the main menu (Figure 1).
  2. In the main menu, press INTERNET
  3. Choose which browser option you want (Home, Enter URL, Bookmarks, etc.) (Figure 18) and press to select. If you press Home you will be taken to the pre-loaded home page.
  4. If required, use the numberpad to type in an URL or scroll a list to select bookmarks. When an URL is completed press GO. Alternatively press the bookmark you wish to access. You will taken to the web page requested.



  1. Activate Wi-Fi and press SEARCH, as before.
  2. When the Wi-Fi access point you want to connect to appears on the display (Figure 8), press it to select.
  3. A pop up options panel appears (Figure 9). Press DETAILS
  4. Details of the Wi-Fi access point appear onscreen.
  5. Scroll down by dragging your finger up the screen. Towards the bottom of the settings list, DEVICE MAC appears, with a string of 12 charactesr beneath (Figure 21). Each handset has an individual MAC address, and this panel will display your Samsung Jet's unique Mac address.
Make a note of the MAC address. You will need it if you want to use the Samsung Jet's Wi-Fi to access a secure Wi-Fi network using MAC address restrictions. This can be added into the wireless router settings access list.

Wi-Fi Functionality
  1. Connects over the last Wi-Fi network you used that's available.
  2. If no Wi-Fi networks you've used are available, iPod touch will scan for Wi-Fi networks and show a list of Wi-Fi networks in range. Tap a network and, if necessary, enter the password to join. Networks that require a password show a lock icon (307189_1.jpg) next to them.
  3. Option to manually enter your Wi-Fi network name/SSID (if the Wi-Fi network is configured not to broadcast or be displayed to the public). If necessary, enter the password to join.
When iPod touch is connected to a Wi-Fi network, the Wi-Fi icon (307189_2.jpg) in the status bar at the top of the screen shows connection strength. The more bars you see, the stronger the connection.
Wi-Fi Settings
  1. Turn Wi-Fi on or off.
    Choose Settings > Wi-Fi and turn Wi-Fi on or off.
  2. Set iPod touch to ask if you want to join a new Wi-Fi network.
    When you are trying to access the Internet, by using Safari or YouTube for example, and you are not in range of a Wi-Fi network you have previously used, this option tells iPod touch to look for another network. iPod touch will display a list of all available Wi-Fi networks that you can choose from. Networks that require a password appear with a lock icon (307189_1.jpg).

    If "Ask to Join Networks" is turned off, you must manually join a network to connect to the Internet when a previously used network is unavailable.

    Choose Wi-Fi and turn "Ask to Join Networks" on or off. If you turn "Ask to Join Networks" off, you must join new networks manually.
  3. Join a Wi-Fi network manually.
    Choose Wi-Fi, wait a moment as iPod touch detects networks in range, then choose a network. If necessary, enter a password and tap Join. Networks that require a password appear with a lock icon.
  4. Make iPod touch forget a network, so that the device doesn't join it automatically. Choose Wi-Fi and tap the arrow (307189_3.jpg) next to a network you've joined before. Then tap "Forget this Network."
  5. Connect to a closed Wi-Fi network (an available Wi-Fi network that isn't shown in the list of scanned networks).
    Choose Wi-Fi, then tap Other and enter the network name. If the network requires a password, choose Security, tap the type of security the network uses, and enter the password. You must already know the network name, password, and security type to connect to a closed network. Some Wi-Fi networks may require you to enter or adjust additional settings, such as a client ID or static IP address. Ask the network administrator which settings to use.
  6. Adjust settings to connect to a Wi-Fi network
    Choose Wi-Fi, then tap the arrow (307189_3.jpg) next to a network.
