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

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

The capability of your network adapter does not match the requirements of the network this is what it says when i try to log onto our new wireless router? please halp......


To correct this issue visit Device Manager by going to Start, then right click Computer, choose Device Manager. Once you are in the device manager click the + next to Network Adapters. Find your wireless network adapter, right click it, and choose uninstall. Once you uninstall the drivers, right click and choose Scan for Hardware Changes. This will then have your computer re-add the drivers.

We cannot log on with the assigned password


Log in to your NETGEAR router by browsing to http://www.routerlogin.net or http://www.routerlogin.com. Enter the username (admin)and password by default the password is 1234 unless it has already been changed
from the left-hand navigation menu of the router manager,select wireles set up>wireless settings
from the center screen,select your encrytion type from under the Security Options heading
if the wireless network passphrase is visible,review it and use it to log on devices onto your network.
If it is not visible you can change your wireless passphrase but changing your passphrase will cause you to lose your wireless connection
Connect your computer to the router using an Ethernet Cable before entering a new passphrase into the text box and clicking apply.
If you cannot log into your router:Unfortunately, there is no way to recover a lost or forgotten password from a router or access point; you will need to reset the device to factory defaults. However, once the device is reset to factory defaults, you can use the default username ("admin") and password (either "password" or "1234" depending on your router) to reconfigure your router settings.

Restoring factory defaults on a device will erase any customizations you have made. You will lose any configurations saved to the device!

From the center screen, select your encryption type from under the Security Options heading.

If the wireless network passphrase is visible, review it and use it to log devices onto your network.

If it is not visible, you can change your wireless passphrase; however, changing the passphrase will cause you to lose your wireless connection. Connect your computer to the router with an Ethernet cable before entering a new passphrase into the text box and clicking Apply.



hope this helps

I don't have the access point network key. How do I continue to install my new MP640R unit to my in home wireless network?


Plug the router into your pc with an ethernet cable ( unless you can log onto the router wirelessly ), log onto the router and set/change your network key.
If you are unsure how, just google youe router and set up.
When you have your network key from the router you can set your wireless printer up

Wireless card not detecting!!!!


I had simalar problems where I could not detect my wireless network even though I could get on the internet I could not see the other computer on my network. I finally after trying everyone else's advice which did not work, found a program called Network Magic. You can purchase it from www.purenetworks.com for $30.00. It took care of all of my network problems and even shows a nice map of how my network is setup and what computers are logged onto the network and even what software like Windows Xp or Windows Vista is on that computer. It will even generate daily logs if you want to show any problems with the network.

D-Link router wont let me go onto the net with the wirless router


At the bottom right hand corner of your screen, you have a wireless connection icon. right click and view available wireless network...if you see your network there. connect to that network, if secured, then call d-link to verfiy what is your network key. if it is unsecure then you can log on right away.

if that wont allow you to connect then upgrade firmware of router.

Connection/setup problem


You are not trying to log onto another network. Your router should connect you to your ISP and the internet, through the modem you are using. If you have a laptop enabled with wireless internet card and you are trying to log onto the network supported by your new router, you can click on the network icon on you computer and get it to scan for available networks. Once you see the network you just created with your new router, you enter the SSID, password and IP address you used in setting up the router. Hope this helps
