Cant log onto ineternet with my pc. It has a Airnet Wireless adapter c

I recently moved to a new house im sharing. My pc has a Airnet wirless adapter installed. It was working fine at the last place I was renting.

My pc detects the owners signal and connection.It shows me there Connection name and it shows me that the signal strength is very good..I have the network key that they have provied me however I get zero connection. When I try to do an IP config I dont even get an ip address or a 0.0.0 all i get is Media is disconnected.

If i hook up directly into their router with an ethernet cable i can get connection..What am I doing wrong?

It is possible that the encryption the router is using is not one supported by your wireless card or OS. Older 802.11 cards do not support WPA and Vista Systems will not connect to WEP.

See if you can get the owner to disable wireless security for troubleshooting, and see if you connect UNsecure. If you can connect with security disabled, then it is time to look at what security your wireless supports and ensure that other wireless restrictions on the router are not blocking the connection (Limits on IP addresses, MAC address filtering etc)

Epson stylus sx215 wirless or not


The Epson Stylus SX215 is not a wireless printer so you will need a USB cable to connect to your printer and print.
If you want to be able to use the printer wirelessly you have a few options:
  1. Check your internet router (assuming it is wireless) to see if it will support and share your printer (Check for compatibility with your printer).
  2. Look for a replacement router that will share and support your printer (Again, do your research before you buy!)
  3. Consider replacing your printer. Most new models are wireless and very similar to the SX215. The down side is that cartridge volume is much smaller on many of the budget models like the XP205 or SX235W.
Hope that helps.

Wireless switch is amber


By default the wireless adapter is enabled on your HP PC. However there are many ways to disable your wireless adapter. It can happen by turning it off in windows or some application may disable it due to execution errors.

Most of the time, when a wireless adapter is disabled on a machine it is very often because someone has pressed the wirless button by mistake. If it has been pushed by mistake, turn the wireless back on by finding the wirless button on your machine and pressing it. Check for button location on the top of the keyboard or the side or front of the PC. Thanks

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.
