Wireless connection or hardwired ethernet ?

Which ISP are you contracted to give them a call let them know of your problems or go to another ISP and phone company
Wi-Fi Internet is a popular and convenient way of accessing web pages and other online applications. A wireless router broadcasts an Internet signal, which enables a computer with a wireless capability to access online applications and sites. Problems with wireless connections require a different approach to troubleshooting than traditional, wired Internet connections. If you find that the wireless connection on your laptop frequently drops out, take a few troubleshooting steps to narrow down the issue and restore your laptop's full functionality.

Reset your network by unplugging the power cords of your Internet modem and wireless router. Wait 30 seconds before replugging the power cords. Restarting your computer will allow the devices to run through their full boot cycle. Test your connectivity after rebooting to verify whether it remains more consistent after the reset. Test your wireless Internet consistency on another Wi-Fi connection that you're legally allowed to use, such as a free public Wi-Fi hotspot. If the connection stays consistent when you're away from home, the problem is likely localized to your home wireless network. If the connection drops no matter which wireless network you are connected to, the problem is more likely with your laptop's wireless card or internal wireless device. Connect the Ethernet cable directly from one of the numbered Ethernet ports on the wireless router to one of the Ethernet ports on your computer. This is a useful way of testing whether the Internet connection is dropping altogether or if your laptop is merely losing its wireless signal strength. If the connection stays more consistent this way, contact the manufacturer of the router or of your computer's wireless card to troubleshoot the device. Plug the Ethernet cable directly from your Internet modem to one of your computer's Ethernet ports. Bypassing the router is useful for further narrowing down the source of your issue. If the connection stays more consistent this way, your router is likely the source of the problem and you should contact the manufacturer of the router for assistance. If the connection continues to drop, contact your Internet service provider to address a possible issue with your modem. wireless network card Go to the Start menu and open the Control Panel. In the Control Panel, open the Device Manager. Locate Network Adapters in the Device Manager list. Click on the plus sign next to Network Adapters to expand a list of all networking devices on your computer. Your wireless card should be listed, and most likely a LAN adapter as well. Alternately, you can open the Network and Sharing Center in the Control Panel, and then click on "Manage Network Connections." Find your wireless connection in the list and right-click it, then select "Status." Under the Status menu, click "Details." This will produce a list of information about your Internet connection, including your wireless card.
Test a Wireless Network Card b> laptop or desktop computer that has no built-in wireless capability needs a wireless network card installed in order for the computer to detect and connect to wireless connections. Before you can establish wireless connection, however, you need to make sure that that your wireless network card is working properly.

Ensure that the wireless network card is properly installed in the computer. A wireless network card can come as a PC/PCMCIA card that only needs to be inserted into a PC card slot in your computer, or it may be a wireless PCI card that needs to be installed inside the computer. Wireless PC/PCMCIA cards are usually used for laptops while wireless PCI cards are installed in desktop computers. Install the driver of the wireless network card. Note that if the driver is not installed, the wireless network card will not be able to communicate with the computer. Insert the installation CD into the optical drive, wait for the computer to recognize the installer and follow the on-screen instructions. Finish the installation procedure and then reboot the computer. If you do not have the installation CD, download the installer/driver from the manufacturer's website. Check if the computer can detect wireless networks and Internet connections. Access the "System Tray" at the bottom-right corner of your screen and double-click the "wireless icon." Browse through the list of available wireless networks and then connect to any one of them. If there is no "wireless icon" in your system tray, the wireless card may not be properly installed to the computer or the device may be malfunctioning. If you cannot connect to a wireless connection, ensure that you entered the correct network password (if connecting to a secured network).

How Do I connect to internet with my desktop without Ethernet cable


To connect wireless to a network ..you need a wireless router or access to a near by one ..and you need to install a wireless card on computer if it has non ..This can be a pci card and you will install it on a pci slot inside and install its driver and after that connect to the network available ..or use a wireless card on usb ..
If you do not have a network free near by ..you can connect using the wireless card to another computer connected to the internet ..or install a wireless router on your Ethernet cable ..and a card in computer or a usb one ..
In my opinion the wireless card and router is the best way cause connecting trough another computer can be tricky and slow..
another way ..if you do not have any other means is to use a wireless modem on usb from a mobile network ISP (internet service provider )
This can be the same provider as your mobile phone one ..

Hi!

We need to isolate and troubleshoot from wall out. First, you need to check that your internet line is working by connecting your computer directly to your internet line (take off the router from the scene). If that doesn't work, you need to call your ISP to get you up and running first with your PC. As soon as it's up that's the only time you can add the router to the network.

Once confirmed, follow steps from this site:

I have not used my laptop for a while and when i came to use it my wireless connection wont work i have a netgear virgin system installed.


Check in the device manager if your computer is seeing the wireless card driver.
Right click my computer, properties, hardware, device manager,network adapters.
Is the wireless card listed?
If it is right click uninstall and reboot on reboot the wireless card should be seen as new hardware follow the wizard and let it install the driver.
If the computer is seeing the card but it has a yellow mark next to it the driver is not loaded you need to get the appropriate driver for that type of card from it's support site or once again try the uninstall reboot.
That’s the wireless card.
Is the net-gear showing an internet connection.
Put a cat 5 cable from your laptop to the net-gear and try to connect via cable if that works it's got to be the wireless card driver or the wireless settings in the net-gear however if they worked previously there is no reason to suspect the router settings.
Hope this helps

Unable to use wireless feature on second computer on the network


The second computer's wireless card may not have the latest wireless card driver installed or it is not enabled and working. Check Device manager to see if is is working and enabled. I suggest you install the latest wireless card driver.
Next check the wireless card configuration, it needs to have the wireless router's settings, ie SSID and encryption etc.

I need to reinstall my wireless internet driver


1. go to the manufacturer of your wireless card adapter
2. dowload the latest driver for your wireless adapter matching the operating system you're using.
3. uninstall the driver by going to start>right click my computer>properties>hardware tab>device manager> go into network adapters>right click the network adapter for which you want to reinstall the driver and click uninstall (you may want to restart your computer). when you do the new hardware wizard may come up and you may want to do either one this:
a. if your wireless adapter is a usb adapter: unplug it, run the driver installation file you download in step 1 and 2 and replug the usb adapter as directed.
b. if your wireless adapter is a pci card: you can run the installation driver file you download or you may want to manually install the driver using the add new hardware that came up when you restart your computer and point to the folder where the driver is (cd or driver you download from internet)

Not detecting any wireless networks


You have not mentioned having a wireless router or access point to serve as the hub on an infrastructure network. I you have a router please let me know -- the instructions for the solution changes.

The following is an article to create an ad hoc network between wireless cards without a wireless access point or a router. If you ignore the steps about connecting to the internet with a wired connection and the internet sharing instructions. This will allow your machines with wireless adapters to communicate with each other (assuming the operate on a common band). The article goes on to indicate one machine with a wired connection can act as the "router" for the other two when it is on to allow them share internet access with the wired machine (the wired machine also needs a wireless card for this to work).

Have you tried enabling the Wireless Zero service? In Control Panel/Admin Tools/Services, scroll down to Wireless Zero and enable it. Some cards use their own interface, some use Wireless Zero. Do you have Wireless Icon showing in the System Tray? You should be able to access the settings by Right-clicking this icon.
