Hi there.

On your taskbar (besides the clock), do you see a WLAN icon (wireless software icon) from your card? When you right click it, there should be "enable wireless" or "Turn radio on".

Just for clarification as well:

Does your laptop computer can connect to other networks (signal) or hotspot?

Is that the only computer that can't connect to your wireless router or there are many?

My computer recognizes the wireless network that I have set up with my NBG-416N Router, and my internet works when I plug into the ethernet. However, I can not get any internet from my wireless.

Is it enabled on your laptop? It can be turned off! All laptops are different, some have a switch or on/off button for the wireless receiver, some use a keystroke/combination. Look for picture of radio signal on your F-keys, if you find it, hold down the FN key and tap the radio key, it will toggle it on then off.

Couldn't find the wireless connection on the says wireless connection is switched to switch the wireless communication on

gkmigmar -

Are you using a laptop? If so, the wireless adapter is turned on one of two ways:

#1 - There may be a physical switch, either on the front or side-edge of the laptop (when on, the wireless LED will will turn on, usually looks likes a little "beacon" or transmitting antenna-picture on the unit)

Or #2 - Look at the Function-keys at the top of your keyboard... generally either F2 or F3 is the wireless toggle switch (on many laptops). Look for a little picture of the "beacon" (or something similiar) on one of the F-keys. To toggle on and off:

Press and hold the Function Key ("Fn", located on the bottom row of your keyboard) and then tap the appropriate Function key. Again, the wireless LED should light up.

If you are using a desktop, comment on this post with the make and model of your desktop, and if the wireless adapter was included with purchase, and I will be glad to assist you in turning it on!

Hope this helps!

Laptop cannot find wireless network

The built-in switch on your laptop must've been turned off. Normally it has a switch that you can toggle on. Sometimes, there's a combination of 2 keys on your keyboard to toggle on the wifi switch. Normally the combination is Fn and F2. Just press them simultaneously and it will trigger your wireless capability.
