When you're loosing the signal the card is shutting down, rebooting resets the card, and there is no way of resetting the card that is any faster or easier than rebooting. This sounds like you may have a loose connection or a little dirt or corrosion built up on a connection. Remove the wireless card, clean the connections for the card and the two leads, also clean the leads and the card slot. Get everything seated back in good and try it. If you're still loosing the signal and the card shuts down, not letting you reacquire a signal, then the card is most likely malfunctioning, and will need to be replaced.

How can i turn on wifi?


Step 1:
which operating system ?
For the most part, IBM has switched its focus away from personal computers and more towards large business items such as servers and networks. However, it is still possible to use and purchase an IBM Thinkpad. These are IBM's version of the laptop. A majority of IBM Thinkpads still use Windows XP and offer the function of connecting to WiFi, as long as the connection has been properly configured.

Power on the IBM Thinkpad and wait for it to completely boot up. Right-click the small wireless desktop icon in the bottom right corner of the screen. Select "View Available Wireless Signals" from the pull-up menu. This is going to load a small window that displays all of the available WiFi signals in the area. There are going to be padlock icons next to the signals if a password has been placed on them. Click on one of the WiFi signals to which you want to connect. If a password is required, you are going to be asked here to type it in. Wait a few moments for the IBM Thinkpad to connect to the WiFi signal. The computer is going to display a small message window once the connection has completed. You have now finished the configuration, and you can begin to surf the Internet.

CONTINUAL DISCONNECTION OF WIRELESS CONNECTION
There are a few things that can cause you to lose wireless connection with your wireless router. 1. Weak signal strength, check the signal strength on your wireless card. If it is weak move the wireless router away from brick or concrete walls and if possible locate the wireless router higher up. 2. Have you secured your wireless router from people near your from unauthorized access? i.e. change the default password, setup encryption use WPA2 or WPA, change the default SSID, and turn off SSID broadcast, and for added protection, enable MAC address filtering which allows only the MAC address/es of your wireless card/s to connect to your wireless router. 3. You could be getting interference from electrical sources such as air conditioners, arc welders, washing machines etc. If so, the power supply to the wireless routers and computers etc should be connected to a surge protection power board, better still connect your computer equipment to an UPS (Uninterrupted Power Supply). 4. Check the channels of the wireless routers and access points in your area and change the broadcast channel on your wireless router to an unused channel or one that is currently used but has the weakest signal strength. This will minimize interference with your wireless router from other wireless routers and access points in your area.

I can't get internet connection even though it says my connection strength is "excellent."


The netbook is working fine. The WiFi connection or SPID may require you to login as in it is a protected signal. The "Excellent" means that you are receiving an excellent signal from the router. What you want is internet access which is upstream of that. Try a different SPID or connection.

How to go wireless on laptop


You need three things
1) An Internet service provider. Once you sign up and agree to pay the fee they will provide the internet service.
2) A wireless router. This is a unit that receives your internet service by through a connection to your telephone line. Then it transmits a radio signal (wireless signal) that your laptop can receive.
3) A Wifi card in your laptop or an external USB Wifi Dongle. This is a radio or wireless receiver that picks up the signal from your router.
The router is usually security protected with a keycode. All you need to do is set up your Wifi card or dongle with the same keycode and you will be able to receive the internet wirelessly.
To check to see whether your laptop has a Wifi card already installed, do the following:
Click Start>Programs>Accessories>Communications>Network Connections> and look for "Wireless Network Connection." If you have this, then your computer has a Wifi card installed and ready to go.

I have a Toshiba M105-S3041 and the wifi will not stay connected. it will connect for a minute or two then drop it. if i repair the connection it works but it stays connected for a minute or two then drop....


Sometimes it is better to turn off firewall protection and limit your start up programs when you use wifi connection. Firewall protection is not recommended when using a wireless broadband or wifi because it blocks the signal especially on laptop computers.

My eep netbook will not connect to internet it says the signal is strong but says internet cannot connect


If your wifi is password protected, you may need to disconnect and try to reconnect and reenter your wifi password.

Make sure that others have the same issue, this could be a sign that your wifi access point or router is going out or that your wifi adapter on the netbook is faulty.

Wifi on thinkpad


i believe you are getting service interupt this can be caused by other signals in the house or outside blocking you wifi
try moving comp closer to the signal of modem
see if this helps
some wifi's are not stong enough signal and gets disconnected
also someone can be back dooring your wifi signal to steal it
this i would call local cable company you are serviced with and have them test your wifi for intrusions

Is my internal wifi card an antique?


It is also possible that you have set a security connection on your computer and the new router is not set to the same security settings. If they don't match, you will not connect...nor will anyone trying to 'steal' your signal.
