Question about Medion md40298 Notebook

1 Answer

I have a medion laptop, a couple of years of age. I got it transformated, and suddenly the Wi-FI won't work. The antenna symbol is right next to the start button, but when I press it, it doesn't react. Also I've tried hitting the Fn button with the antenna button, and Fn + F2, but that makes my computer go into hibernate. A collegue advised me to get the program from medion, since it must have been erased. Can you figure out the problem?

Sounds like you may need to reinstall the drivers for your wireless nic if you reformatted they may have been deleted. You can go to driverguide.com and download any driver for any system there. You need to join and a small fee is required but it gives you access to anything you may need.

How do I change the password on the kindle for the wireless network?


To add a new Wi-Fi Network:

If you don't see the network you want to connect to in the list of detected networks, you can add it by choosing "Enter other Wi-Fi network" at the bottom of the list of detected networks.
  1. Make sure you are within range of the network you want to add, and that you know the network name and password (if required).
  2. Press the Home button, then press the Menu button.
  3. Navigate to "Settings" by moving the 5-way controller down, then press the 5-way controller to select.
  4. Select "view" next to "Wi-Fi Settings" to display a list of detected Wi-Fi networks.
  5. Use the 5-way controller to navigate down to "Enter other Wi-Fi network" and press to select.
  6. Enter the name of the Wi-Fi network that you want to add.
  7. Enter the password (if required). Press the Symbol key to enter numbers or characters not present on the Kindle keyboard. You can continue to use the keyboard while the Symbol menu is displayed.
  8. Choose "submit." Kindle connects to the new Wi-Fi network.
If your Kindle fails to connect to the new Wi-Fi network, it will display an "unable to connect" message. You can try manually entering all the network information for the Wi-Fi network by choosing "set up network" when you see the "unable to connect" message. If you don't know the network information, try connecting to a different network, or contact the network's administrator.

To forget a Wi-Fi network:

You can tell Kindle to forget the Wi-Fi network you're connected to so that your Kindle doesn't connect to it automatically in the future.
  1. While connected to the network that you want to forget, press the Home button, then press the Menu button.
  2. Navigate to "Settings" by moving the 5-way controller down, then press the 5-way controller to select.
  3. Select "view" next to "Wi-Fi Settings" to display a list of detected Wi-Fi networks. You may have to wait a moment as your Kindle detects networks in range. The Wi-Fi network you are currently connected to displays the word "forget" next to it in the list of available networks.
  4. Choose "forget" to disconnect from the network.

To connect to a Wi-Fi network:

  1. Press the Home button, then press the Menu button.
  2. Navigate to "Settings" by moving the 5-way controller down, then press the 5-way controller to select.
  3. Select "view" next to "Wi-Fi Settings" to display a list of detected Wi-Fi networks. You may have to wait a moment as your Kindle detects networks in range. Kindle automatically scans for available Wi-Fi networks at periodic intervals. To rescan for available networks at any time, select "rescan."
  4. Select "connect" to connect to a network. If you see a lock symbol next to "connect," the network requires a password to connect.
  5. If necessary, enter the Wi-Fi network password, and choose "submit." Press the Symbol key to enter numbers or characters not present on the Kindle keyboard.
Once you are connected to a Wi-Fi network, Kindle automatically connects to it again whenever that network is in range. If more than one previously used network is in range, your Kindle automatically connects to the network that was most recently used.

Tip: Once your Kindle connects to a Wi-Fi network, that network displays "forget" next to it in the list of available networks. Selecting "forget" disconnects your Kindle from that Wi-Fi network and also prevents Kindle from automatically connecting to it in the future.

My Tablet keeps shutting down, uses Battery quickly, won;t even find wireless, when it stays on long enough.


You neglected to provide the age of the tablet. If it's a couple years or older your battery might be on the way out. They don't last forever and some of them aren't of the best quality to begin with. Charge it all night long. In the morning when you turn it on if it still doesn't work right be sure to check the battery level with the A/C adapter unplugged. The level indicators are based on the voltage. If the voltage doesn't come up to spec, it might show less than 100% charge even when charged overnight.

The wi-fi problem could be battery related, too, as wi-fi is a radio transceiver that sends as well as receives signals. Wi-fi doesn't work so well if the transmitter produces a weak or intermittent signal.

Turn on my wireless wi fi on my lap top saying my lan in os is off


On many laptops, there is an external switch to turn the wi-fi on/off. This is normally found on the front or sides of the laptop case. It can be easy to turn off the wi-fi accidentally if you grab your laptop a certain way that causes you to press the switch.

On some laptops, you will find the wi-fi on/off switch by raising the laptop screen to expose the keyboard. The switch may often be found by looking at the area above the keyboard. In almost every case, the wi-fi on/off switch will be lit if the wi-fi is on, and unlit if the wi-fi is turned off.

    I am unable to pickup internet wirelessly with my computer.


    Hi Fred!
    I have checked the specification of your laptop here and found that your laptop is Wi-Fi capable and wi-fi drivers are available and can be downloaded and installed here. (if required)
    Most Gateway notebooks have a designated multi-function button or function key to turn your wireless on and off. There should be a tiny slide switch or button with a small antenna symbol. There should also be a light with the same symbol to show when it is on and from the keyboard Press Fn+F2 to enable wireless.

    Let me know if any further clarification/ assistance is required.

    Good Luck!
    Dont forget to appreciate the solution if I could have been of any help!

    First to clarify; is this a WIRELESS ROUTER?
    If it is OK, there are also LAN/ethernet outputs on it as well.
    DESKTOP COMPUTERS do not typically contain Wi-Fi apadters or 'antenna', these are in most all laptops made these days.
    If you have a wireless Wi-Fi Router then it should be fairly straitforward to connect laptops (Start Menu>Connect To, in Windows)
    You may have to either HARD WIRE (ethernet line) or buy an internal Wi-Fi or USB Wi-Fi Adapter/antenna. If it's a fairly recent wireless router this becomes fairly straight forward after that.

    Wireless no longer works


    1st Solution:
    Check if the wi-fi card is properly installed under Device Manager. Go to Start then look for Control Panel on the right pane. Under Control Panel look for System and Maintenance and then click on Device Manager. Now under Device Manager look for Network Adapters and collapse or click the arrow next to it. Check if your wi-fi adapter is installed(10/100 or 10/1000 is your LAN adapter, wi-fi adapters usually indicates something like 802.11x(could be agn or g or b) or the word "wireless". If you don't see anything I mentioned above that means your computer is unable to detect any wi-fi adapters installed. Know if you found a wi-fi adapter but there is a yellow exclamation or question mark, all you have to do is re-install the drivers for your wi-fi adapter(you can download the drivers on the Compaq website for free.)

    2nd Solution:
    Check if the wi-fi is disabled or stopped, if you have a bulit in wi-fi adapter on your laptop they have a wi-fi switch on the side or near the function keys(F1, F2, F3 up to F12). Wi-fi button/switch will have a logo or marking of an antenna that has waves coming out of it and there is a LED light that will indicate if its on or off(for Comapaq laptops it's either a blue button at the front, near the function keys or at the front panel on the buttom edge.

    If both fails then you may need to contact Compaq for further assistance.

    Hope this will help you fixin the wi-fi problems on your laptop.
