Reset the machine by flipping it over on it's back and find a small hole 1in diagonaly from the lower right corner of the data plate. put theend of a tooth pick in that hole and depress for about 10 seconds and you will reload a new copy of the software. look closely at the bottom right corner of the tool bar and see if you spot a small computer with 2 side radiating arcs. The newer version of the software automatically turns on the wIfI, but you should see the blue WiFi logo icon.

It is looking for a password (WiFi Network Key) You have to double click on the little computer icon down in the right tool bar area, the one with the two side radiating arcs, and possibly has a small red X under it. The red X indicates that it is NOT connected. When you double click on that icon a window called RT28701 opens up, then you click on Wireless Information tab, then you cursor down to the name of your WiFi and high light it and click the connect box. Then another window opens up called Network Properties. Uncheck "The key is provided automatically" box. This will allow you to type in your "Network Key", the password that protects your network from outsiders. This "KEY" was set up when you installed the router on your server computer. If this does not work at first, turn the machine over on it's back and using a toothpick, insert it into the little hole about an inch diagonally from the right corner of the data plate, this will re-load a new copy of everything including the WiFi RT28701 driver.

sometimes this driver gets confused. See my TIP at: http://www.fixya.com/support/r7350901-fix_synet07526_wifi_flashing


Additional Information


When I try to sign on with the red X showing, I get "The page cannot be displayed If I then double click on the icon down in the right corner I elucidated above, RT28701 opens up to "Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) with all zeros in the IP address field, and Subnet Mask, with no entries in the default gateway. That is a clue to me that the auto sign on has not found a viable network or needs something else. If I then click on Wireless Information tab, The list of available networks appear in the box. The machine keeps trying to associate my previous entered name site with my prefered site and tells me the signal is good, but it cannot link up. This is a signal to me that it has lost my Network Key or that the software has failed or both. I then click on advance and delete my prefered network and hit OK, this will force the software to ask me for my network again, and notice that the prefered is missing. I click on the name of my network again and then hit connect., then the Wireless Network properties window opens up and I can insert my Network Key again after I uncheck the "The key is provided automatically" box. I enter the key and hit the OK button. I still do not get a connection, so I reboot the machine, and wait for about 30 seconds and the machine synchs up because the little RED X under the icon has disappeared. Now the machine will hook to the internet as long as I want to, but sometimes when I turn the machine on it will not synch, so I go through the above sequence again. The secret is once you have entered your key and ask for the machine to synch up you have to reboot. Why? I do not exactly know, but I suspect that the WiFi driver looses it

Im trying to connect to the internet but my nintendo dsi sais there is no access point in range


This problem means that you dont have any wifi in your location. Here's what to do.

  1. First, find a place where Wifi Connection is free.Then after finding the location do this.
  2. On your nintendo dsi desktop, go to system settings.
  3. Then go to the Internet.
  4. After going to the internet. Go to Connection Configuration.
  5. Then at the next page, tap the sentence " Search for an Access Point," this will search for available wifi in your area,
  6. Then a list of wifi connections will appear on your DSI, choose one with a open-lock Icon, this icon means it is shared and you dont have to use any passwords in logging in.
  7. And once your connected to the wifi, you can now access your internet.
Goodluck, Thank you for using Fixya! Have a nice day!

I've used the internet but do not have free access, I know have a small blue icon at top of screen which looks like a 'blue dot with signal lines coming from it, which I cannot get to go away?! please...


Looks like your wifi is on and is set to the default internet option. Turn off the wifi first by going to the wifi icon in your menu and tapping the wifi circle in the middle.
To change the internet profile i.e. 3G go to menu/internet/settings/internet profiles and choose your preffered option, normally you will need to request internet settings from your network provider by sending a text.
The blue icon you speak of is tells you wifi is on this should go away once wifi is deactivated better to do this as wifi eats up the battery on this phone big time.

How to turn on WIFI?


Look at the sides of your laptop. Look for a sliding switch with a wifi wave icon. Manually slide it to turn the wifi radio ON or OFF.

If you don't have that mechanical switch, look at your laptop's Function Keys (F1 to F12). Look for a function key with a wifi wave icon printed in a different color. Example, if F10 has that wifi wave icon, hold down the FN Key and press F10 to turn your wifi ON and OFF.

Cant get wife to connect is the wireless icon


hi
no the wifi stay blinking on activity, but the wireless connection on the laptop has to stay on
1. first have you tried with the ISP if you need any Proxy settings or specific IP address.
2. also check with the ISP if you need any specific DNS server settings
3. if the above two are given or not required but the router still does not give out connections then try this
instead of connecting the cable from the Modem to the slot named INTERNET try connecting it in one of the out going slots (numbered 1,2,3,4) and now connect the other systems as usual.

cheers
PS: if this has been any bit useful pls rate it, thanks

AUDIOVOX XV6700 won't connect to wifi


Tap the "EV" or "1X" icon on the top of the today screen, and then tap settings. Select the Wireless LAN, and then tap the icon in the bottom left corner that looks like a target with parenthesis. That just got you to the communication manager. There you can toggle your "phone" on and off, as well as bluetooth, wireless and sound, among others (depending on what you have installed). when you tap the antenna for wireless, does it turn green, and the little "x" go away? That's what you need to figure out first, after that we can go look at some other things....

My wrieless network connection is properly installed but i can not connect internet using my laptop


Dear Ditditong,

First is your wifi switch on the compaq enabled. It is suppose to be lighted and an icon on the task bar will tell you it is.

Second, check your Wifi OS set-up if properly done ; if not use the windows wizard to accomplish this.

Third, Make sure your D-link has been properly set-up for wireless set-up to be able for you to access the router. The manual might have information along this line.

Wireless Internet Access


Hi, Normally there should be an Icon at the system tray (lower right) which is for the WiFi. Placing your mouse over the icons would tell you what the icon is for. Right clicking on the WiFi icon would show you whether it is enable or disabled. Double clicking on it would give you the WiFi access window where you can select which WiFi network you can connect to. Some of these wireless internet cafe would grant free access while others would need you to check-in with their admin or somebody and on certain cafes for a fee. Hope this be of some help to you and pls post again how things turn up. Kind regards.
