I just used recovery disk to restore back to factory setting for acer aspire 7741Z. Now it won't recognize my wireless router


To connectyour computer to a wireless router, you click the Refresh networklist, then Choose your wireless network and then click Connectto your secured Wireless Network, it will asks for a Network Keybefore allowing you to connect into your wireless network. This NetworkKey is either the WEP, or WPA or WPA2 Encryption key that is used toconfigure the Wireless Router. The Passphrase is an alternate way tosetup the Encryption key.
When you are requested for a Network Key, you can just enter the Passphrasethat was used to configure the Encryption key in the wireless router.http://www.fixya.com/support/r5270415-network_password_network_addressFor information on securing your wireless network,configuring the wireless router and configuring the wireless card in thelaptop/computer, please click on this link and follow my instructions :-http://www.fixya.com/support/r3559128-wireless_router_security

I cannot connect to the WIFI at work, but I can connect to my WIFI network at home, and other public networks. The wireless network at work is pushed by a D-Link 8200AP with a WAP security, just like it is...


Your laptop cannot connect to your work's wireless network because the security settings (ir WAP) in the D-Link is different to the security setting in your Netgear.
The wireless card in your laptop will need the settings changed to suit the D-Link's wireless settings ie the SSID and WAP.
You will need to change the wireless card settings in your laptop back to the Netgear's wireless settings to connect to your wireless network at home.
Some wireless cards allow you to set up different profiles for different wireless networks which allow you to switch wireless networks easily by just selecting the profile for the network you want to connect to.

My daughter is home from college. Her computer can't connect to our homes wireless. It recognizes that the wireless is there, but can't or won't connect.


What does it do when you try and connect? Does it ask you for the key? Is your wireless network have security set up on it or is it an open network?
Thank you,

To connect to your wireless router, it needs the router's wireless settings configured and also the wireless cards in all the laptops and or computers needs to be configured with the router's wireless settings. Then the laptops and desktop computers can communicate with your wireless router.

What are the steps to hooking up your xbox 360 wireless network adapter


Hello

Plug the wireless USB adapter into the USB port on the back of the Xbox 360 console.

Turn on your Xbox 360 console.

The console will recognize the wireless adapter and will walk you thru the wireless network setup. Be sure to have your WEP key (if encryption is used) for your router before you start this process.

This adapter works well - I am using one and regularly play Modern Warfare 2 with multiple chat sessions. There is no noticable difference between my wired network connection and this wireless network connection.

Happy gaming!

No, it's probably because you have setup a wireless home network with security in place.

Go through the settings on your husband's notebook settings for your home network and set your Dell up the same way. You will need to know the SSID for the wireless network, security type and key to set it up.

There are wireless networking capabilities of the gateway that will prevent or allow specific MAC Addresses from connecting to the network. Go into the wireless settings and adjust the settings to accept the MAC address from your work computer. To find the MAC address from your computers network adapter go into a command prompt by typing cmd in the run box and typing "IPconfig /all" in the window. The MAC address is there it may be called Physical Address. It is always a 16 set of number and letter combinations divided by ":" between every 2 sets of number / letters. On your home desktop this same window will help you diagnose the problem. Your son's computer will help you with this, do this on his as well and compare the IP address with your home computer the address could be something like "192.168.1.?" the last number is going to be unique if the first three numbers match. If the IP address on your home computer doesn't match the first three octets "192.168.1" it will not get out through the gateway. If they don't match you can force it to be on the same network by setting up a static IP address by opening up the Control Panel / Networking icon and finding the icon for the network adapter that you are using and opening it up and clicking on "Properties" and clicking on IPv4 and clicking properties and clicking on Specify IP address and typing the first three octets of your son's computer and adding a fourth number that isn't "0" or "255". You can use any number between those two numbers except those numbers, and isn't the same as your son's IP Address or the Default Gateway which is the Linksys. The "Subnet Mask" will auto install but will be "255.255.255.0". The default gateway and DNS server will be the IP address of the Linksys which most likely will be "192.168.1.1". Click "Ok" on all the open dialog boxes and the computer should be able to get on the internet.

Emachine notebook doesn't recognize my wireless network.


Try running the Microsoft updates or getting updated drivers for your wireless NIC. It's even possible that the wireless card in the laptop doesn't support WPA security. Unlikely seeing as how the board is fairly new, but possible. You might also want to try getting a PCMCIA wireless card and popping that in.

If you are hardly doesn't connect even your wireless station is been detected why not try to set your settings manually in your wireless card.

This is when you are behind a router.

Goto Network and sharing center. Click on Manage Wireless Network. Click on Adapter properties. Click Internet Protocol version 4. Click properties, then set the ipaddress of your laptop it doesn't have to be identical to any of your existing connection, your subnet, default gateway. And also input your IP DNS.

Lg r 405 will not recognize wireless signal from lynksys wrt350n


hi i would suggest to access your routers setuppage and set the channel to channel 11.

make sure also if your wireless network is secured, type the correct key those things are case sensitive.

to access the routers setuppage go to a computers that is connected to your linksys router (wired) then launch IE on the address bar type 192.168.1.1(this is the routers ip) then it will ask you for username and password for the username dont type any thing for the password type admin.

when your on the setuppage click on wireless tab. while on the wireless page set the channel to 11.

after that click apply or save settings on the page.

then after that try to connect to your wireless network on your laptop.



for further help you can call linksys hot line 1800-3267114
they will surely help you with this.

hope this helps.
