Maybe, you should try another outlet, or pressing the reset button.

Do I have to have a wireless card in my lap top to make it work with my router, the lap top is a Hp 7000 and router has wireless set up. I can make the wireless light, light up but I can't get on...


Call up the company that made your computer, and tell them of this error. You are most likely missing the driver for your computer that allows wireless internet. They will tell you exactly what you need.

My lap top detects other sky routers


Check your router settings. You should surch for a setting called "Undetectable" or "Hide SSID". Or, if you know the name (SSID) of your home wireless connection, you can enter it. If none of this helps, post the router's manufacturer and model and your laptop manufacturer and model. And btw, what OS you're using?

Inspiron 6000 has trouble picking up wireless signal


Some wireless cards are better than others at picking up weaker signals.
The problem with any wireless transmissions is that radio signals cannot pass through metallic surfaces.
You should position your wireless router away from metallic surfaces/walls and position your laptop so it can receive the radio signals without it passing through any metallic walls. If possible place the wireless router higher than at desk level.

My desktop uses a DSL internet connection but my lap top will not pick up the signal from it to connect even when I have it sitting right next to my desktop. If I actually unplug yellow connection cord...


Having your laptop sitting next to your desktop will not let your laptop connect to the DSL link.

You need what's called a Wireless Router. (assuming your laptop has a wireless adapter, if not you'll need a network cable for that.

1. Go to the store, buy a wireless router
2. install router in between your DSL modem and the computer.
3. Plug the WAN port into the DSL modem (cable is usually included with the router)
4. Plug the desktop into the back of one of the ports of the wireless router
5. Run the setup disk
6. For manual configuration of the router you can usually go to: 192.168.0.1 or 192.168.1.1 or 192.168.2.1 depending on the brand)
7. If you don't know anything about networking, let the install disk do all the work.
8. Follow the instructions on what it tells you your configuration is for your wireless network.
9. Go to your laptop, apply said instructions.
10. ???
11. Profit.

Wireless stopped working


you may have accidently shut off the wireless on/off switch or button.i also have a acer laptop,& it has a sliding switch in front.other laptops have a push in button.your owners manual should show you where yours is. also check the bottom right hand corner of your laptop for the 2 little computers symbol. right click on it, click on view available networks,look for your router # on the listings. you may have to type in a wep key # to lock in your router.the other signals you are seeing are other routers in the area
good luck

It's a common problem because the signal can get bounced off surfaces and not get to your notebook directly. The reason why you can get neighbours is because most phone sockets are near a window, hence the router is picked up quite easily by your Acer laptop as it has a Signal Up built into the antenna in your screen and because the signal is only going throgh mainly glass and air it tends to pick up more connections than some other laptops. it also makes a big difference if your router has more than one antenna and a long range capability in the settings.
