I cant connect my laptop to wifi


Glad to HELP YOU!

As long as you didn't specified WHAT laptop do you have - I will post here a GENERAL RULE to make your Wi-Fi working. Almost sure you don't have the driver or is outdated.

So double-click on MY COMPUTER > PROPERTIES > HARDWARE > DEVICE MANAGER and on NETWORK ADAPTERS choose your WLAN CARD.
Right-click on it > PROPERTIES and choose UPDATE DRIVER. Check again to connect via Wi-Fi.
If this operation will fail I'd suggest you to DOWNLOAD and to INSTALL a nice software called DRIVER MAGICIAN Lite from HERE.
It will detect your missing or outdated drivers and it will indicate where to download them from.

My best wishes!

Where is the 'Wireless Switch' on the IBM T42


The T42 has a bulit-in wireless network adapter and a LAN network card. T42s most likely have an Intel wireless card or less likely a Cisco wireless card.
Your wireless network adapter may have been disabled in the BIOS
and/or
The drivers for the wireless network controller has not been installed.

To check the network adapter go to the Control Panel, Click on System, click on Hardware Tab then Device Manager. Then scroll down and click on Network adapters. If you don't see your network controller or you see a yellow ? against Other devices for the Network controller. Then either it has been disabled and/or the driver was not installed.

To get the driver for the network controller you need to dowload it from the IBM/Lenovo WEB site their support/download page from a computer that has Internet access. Make sure you select your laptop model and the driver for your Windows version.
Install the driver and you then need to configure the wireless adapter to suit your wireless router settings before you can access the Internet.

This will help. Thanks please keep updated. please do rate the solution positively .Thank you for using Fixya

Laptop was looping on updates part 3 could not get to home page. so f12 and reloaded o/s and drivers discs.now cant get on internet says driver and network adaptor is not installed. Tried drivers disc...


Look in the device manager and see if your network devices are listed or have yellow triangles by them. Since you are typing this I am assuming you have a laptop to use to access the internet. Below are the drivers for your system or at least the links to the drivers. Download them onto a flash or thumb drive. Go to the device manager on your laptop and uninstall all the network adapters listed there. You can keep the drivers if it says that they are there. Reboot the laptop with the thumb drive in a usb slot. Windows will recognize the adapters and want to search for the drivers for them, let windows search first, if it doesn't see the drivers then go into "My computer" find the thumb drive, open it and manually install the adapter software drivers on the thumb drive. If you are not sure which wireless device you have, don't worry...while you are installing the software will tekk you whether it finds the device or not. There are several wireless adapters available for that laptop, so just download all the software and run it all. I would run the wired driver first, that way you can at least get connected via an ethernet cable then run windows update and get the rest of the drivers by hittong custom on the update window and looking through all the optional updates...those include all the updates for your hardware. Links are below.....You didn't specify what operating system you had, so just pick your operating system when the link comes up, it will be a drop down list on the page, then pick your driver downloads and that's it.

Fujitsu siemens not seeing wireless networks


Go Fujitsu Website and support, download drivers and download the correct WIRELESS NETWORK DRIVER and/or ADAPTER drives. Select RUN and reinstall them (all).

If that does not work then it may be the network adapter which may be behind a back flap. Remove and Replace with same part. Actually its easier just to buy a USB or PCMCIA Network Adapter from Radio Shack to plug in to your Notebook, comes with software and driver installation disk about $40. This is generally the best solution as it works independantly as a "plug in", easier to install if notebook's built in Network Adapter is defective.

I need to connect to the internet


can you see if the network card has the correct drivers?
Click Start; Right Click on "My Computer" Select Manage

A new application will launch - Computer Management
From this application, click on "Device Manager"
There may be some devices with ? listed - make sure that there is at least a device under network adapter. If there isn't, then the driver is not set for the network adapter - you'll need to take the original pc system disk to get the driver; or download it from dell.

Acer aspire 3000


1. this one is obvious but is probably best to check.. are your access points broadcasting the ssid? if not get that fix first or manually configured your workstation by entering the ssid you had configured in your access point with the respective pass/key
2. did you download the correct driver? check in device manager for any ! or ? next to your wireless adapter (network adapter) then do the following if any:
a. rollback to the previous driver by doing a driver rollback (device manager, device properties, driver tab) then test.
b. uninstall and reinstall the driver that you got from the laptop manufacturer, check the model is the same correct one.
