There is free internet service with an unsecure wifi at my apartment building. How do I boost the signal so I can get optimal results with so many freeloaders hogging the internet?


Bummer deal! Try to reinstall the wifi. And try and move it to a different location - to see if that helps. Try higher in the air for more direct signal reach. Hope this helps.

Slow wifi on Sony Pcg-21313l


So, If you have internet connection speed problem with your wireless try with the following steps,
1.) Reset the wireless router by using the power switch on it or by unplugging it and plugging it back in.
2.)Place the wireless router in an ideal location. The higher it is, the better, but don't put it near metal objects.
3.)Get as close as possible to the router with whatever device you're trying to connect.
4.)Keep the router and your connecting device away from other electronics. You should especially keep away from phones, fax machines and microwaves. etc.,
5.)Adjust the Wifi antenna if it has one.
6.)Change the router's channel, especially if other wireless routers are nearby.
Following these steps would give you stable internet connection and also increased speed in connection. You can check your internet speed from www.ScanMySpeed.Com before and after following these steps.

Can not connect to internet


People often get confused about how to connect their netbooks (or laptops) to the internet. It's the same for cheap netbooks or expensive netbooks - you can connect pretty much all netbooks to the internet in four ways.... And it's really easy once you get past the jargon.
1 - Wired netbook connection using your home ISP
The first way, and one I use a lot, is just plug your netbook into your router at home, using the netbook's Ethernet port and the cable supplied with your router.
This way works every time, gives a fast and secure connection, but means that you need to use your netbook within cable distance of your router. Any internet usage will be part of your normal broadband usage with your home ISP, but isn't the point of netbooks that you can be mobile with them? Who wants to have nice new netbooks tied up by a cable?



2 - Wireless netbook connection using your home ISP
Another way to get online with netbooks if you're at home is to connect wirelessly to your home router.
It's a very easy process - just turn the netbook on and it will seek out your router. You get a fast connection, good security (if you tell your router to use WPA encryption) and it will usually work anywhere in your house or garden. Several netbooks, laptops or other computers can use your internet connection this way from the same router, so your family and friends can use their netbooks at the same time.
3 - wifi netbook connection out and about

A really cheap way to get online when you're out and about is wifi. Many busy locations - pubs, hotels, shopping malls - have "wifi hotspots" which are simply powerful wireless routers that you can use to connect your netbooks wirelessly to the net.
Some are free and can be used by any computers that are nearby. Others are owned by telecomms operators like BT Openzone or mycloud and you need to pay to use them. Monthly subscriptions or pay as you go are available. So are these free and cheap choices ideal for using with cheap netboks?
For anything other than general browsing on netbooks, beware of wifi. The free ones have no security at all, and the others have password protection, but the data you send and receive is not encrypted. This means anyone in the vicinity could snoop and listen in on what you were doing. I don't bother with wifi for this reason.
See our separate feature on wifi for more about this.
4 - Your 3G netbook connection - at home or away.

netbook dongle for 3G wireless internet

The final way to connect netbooks to the net - (and yes there are only four ways - I told you it was easy) is using the latest mobile phone network - 3G short for Third Generation. Just like a mobile phone, you can pay as you go or take out a monthly subscription with one of the phone companies to suit your needs. Then, using a little device like a USB stick called a USB modem, or a "dongle" plugged into your netbook, you can connect quickly and securely to the net in most of the UK and lots of places overseas. Some netbooks even have a slot to put your SIM card straight in
If you can use a mobile phone where you are, you can probably connect to the internet using 3G. Many people use 3G to connect netbooks to the net even at home and don't bother with a normal ISP.

Your pc could have a phone line input for built in modem DO NOT use that.
Use the lan inlet connector.When you connect the lan cable it should gain access at once.
Unless your connection is protected by a code.
If you have a wire less connection its probably protected with a code when you set the router up.
You have to enter the code to gain access to your network.

Here is a link that shows you how to repair the connection:

http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/using/networking/maintain/repair.mspx

And if you have wire less:

Good luck.

If you have a wireless router you must know the password you made when you set the router up.
Try also to look in your controlpanel network and shareringcenter.

Hope this was helpfull.

Have an acer Aspire One netbook and for some reason I cannot connect to the internet even though it is saying that a wifi connection has been established. This has never happened before


If you are connecting on an open WiFi (does not have WEP or WPA enabled), then make sure you are connected to the correct SSID (wireless ID) and not on some other open SSID. If you are on the right SSID, check that you don't have limited connectivity due to low signal strength. If OK, then open Internet Explorer to use its Diagnose Connection Problems tool...
1. click on Tools tab
2. click on Diagnose Connection Problems...
3. click on Next button and follow the steps
If unsuccessful, try powering off the wireless router and the cable/dsl modem for a few minutes and then powering up the modem first followed by the wireless router. Once the netbook has re-established the WiFi connection, repeat the above procedure to Diagnose Connection Problems. Finally, if still unseccessful, connect directly to your wireless router using an ethernet cable from one of the four RJ-45 LAN ports on the router to the netbook's 10/100 ethernet RJ-45 port on its left side. A LAN connection icon should now show in the bottom right of the Desktop's Toolbar. Hovering the mouse cursor over it shows the Local Area Connection pop-up with Speed and Status. If Status is connected, then open Internet Explorer again and use its Diagnose Connection Problems tool to check connectivity to the internet. If still unresolved, the next step would be to log into the router to check its WAN status and depending on the results, you may have to contact your Internet Service Provider.
