Check the DNS numbers you have in your network configuration under TCP/IP. Can you ping google? Go to the START button, then RUN and type in CMD and hit enter. A dos prompt window will open (black screen with text and the cursor will be blinking). Type in - ping www.google.com - and hit enter. It should come back with times it takes to ping google. If it comes back not finding google then you're not connecting to the webserver... need right dns numbers.

How to setup a Wireless Network


1. <b>Connect Your Wireless Router</b> <br /><b>a.</b> Power off your cable modem and your wired PC.<br /><b>b.</b> Unplug the Ethernet cable from your cable/DSL modem and plug it into one of the LAN ports on the back of the wireless router. Leave other end of the cable connected to your PC.<br /><b>c.</b> Connect another Ethernet cable between your modem's Ethernet port and the wireless router's WAN port. (The WAN port should be separate from the other grouped LAN ports.)<br /><b>d.</b> Power on the modem and watch for the status lights to indicate that it's connected to your Internet service. This may take a minute or so.<br /><b>e.</b> Plug in the router. The status lights will blink as it runs through its diagnostics; this may also take a minute or so.<br /><b>f.</b> Start up your wired PC.<br />2. <b>Configure your Wireless Router</b><br /><b>a.</b> Refer to the router's quick-start guide, launch Internet Explorer, and type in the address indicated in the guide.<br /><b>b.</b> Follow the on-screen setup wizard, which will guide you through the process step by step.<br /><b>c.</b> Enable your router's security functions. This is very important if you don't want other people attaching to your wireless signal. The options will be WEP and WPA. Both will ask you to enter a key. Depending on the router's manufacturer, you may have to go into Advanced Settings to accomplish this step.<br /><b>d.</b> Change the default administrator's password, Almost all hackers know them.<br /><b>e.</b> Change the SSID-the name of your wireless network. Again, hackers know many of the default SSIDs and can use them to hack your network.<br />3. <b>Install a Wireless PCI Card in a Desktop PC</b> <br /><b>a.</b> Refer to the card manufacturer's quick-start guide. If necessary, run the software installation program.<br /><b>b.</b> Power down the PC.<br /><b>c.</b> Remove the cover.<br /><b>d.</b> Find an available PCI slot and remove the slot cover from the back of the PC.<br /><b>e.</b> Carefully insert the antenna through the open slot in the back of the PC, carefully push the card in the slot, and secure it. Replace the cover. <br /><b>f.</b> Start up the PC. It should recognize and install the new PCI card.<br /><b>g.</b> Go to the Control Panel, select Network connections, select Wireless Networking connection. Click on Properties button. Click on Wireless Networking tab. Select the wireless networking name (see step 2e). Click on Configure button. Configure your security settings to match the ones on your wireless router.<br />4. <b>Install a Wireless PC Card in a Notebook PC</b> <br />Many notebooks have built-in wireless cards. However, If yours doesn't, you can install either a USB wireless adapter or a wireless PC card just follow these instructions.<br /><b>a.</b> Refer to the card manufacturer's quick-start guide. If necessary, run the software installation program.<br /><b>b.</b> Power down the PC.<br /><b>c.</b> Plug your USB wireless Adapter or wireless PC Card into an available slot on the side of your notebook.<br /><b>d</b>. Start up the PC. It should recognize and install the new PCI card.<br /><b>e</b>. Go to the Control Panel, select Network connections, select Wireless Networking connection. Click on Properties button. Click on Wireless Networking tab. Select the wireless networking name (see step 2e). Click on Configure button. Configure your security settings to match the ones on your wireless router. well, thats pretty much it. Hope this is helpful to all you home networkers.<br />

How to connect to always automatically connect to your SSID


Ever turn on your computer and try to connect to the internet? Ever see all the many SSIDs in your neighborhood listed in your wireless radar or your "Windows Wireless Connection". Then you'd scroll down to double click on your SSID so that you can connect to the internet. Imagine doing this everytime you have to connect to the internet. Wouldn't that be annoying?

The Objective
The objective of this Tip/How-To is to have you turn on your computer and connect to the internet automatically via your SSID (Wireless Network Name). Hence, you wouldn't need to manually find your SSID everytime you need to connect to the internet.

6a6f420.jpg


Pre-requisites or Must haves for this Tip to work
  1. A computer with a wireless adapter
  2. A wireless router
  3. An active internet service
  4. This tip is designed for Windows XP. I will post one up for Windows Vista and Windows 7.
  5. This tip is designed to work with Wireless Networks (SSID) that do not have any passwords or encryption.

Active Tip Dictionary (throughout this TIP)
SSID
is the technical term for your broadcasted network name. This is basically what you will see listed in your WIRELESS NETWORK CONNECTIONS manager.


To make your computer connect automatically to the internet via your SSID, we will need to manually tell your computer to connect to your SSID and then we will need to save this setting so that your computer will automatically connect to your SSID everytime you turn on your computer.

Let's Begin.
Start your computer by turning it on.

Click on your Start Button.
14c207b.jpg

Move your mouse over to Control Panel and then left click on it.
ff339b2.jpg

Double click on the Network Connections icon.
8a673e8.jpg

Double click on Wireless Connection. Now in the picture above you see Wireless Connection 3 but on your screen you should see Wireless Connection.

moz-screenshot-1.png97e1e56.jpg

Now click on Properties.
5381832.jpg

Click on the Wireless Networks Tab.
b119bfe.jpg

Now scroll up and down under Preferred networks until you find your Wireless Network Name (SSID). For me, it's called linksys therefore I will select linksys.

Now click on Properties.
4c1fadb.jpg

Now click on the Connection tab.
52daf8c.jpg

Under Automatic connection, click to check "Connect when this network is in range". This will tell your computer to connect automatically to your Wireless Network Name (SSID).

Click OK to save this setting.

Click OK again to get out of the Properties window.

Click OK again to get out of the Wireless Connections window.

Then click Close to close out of the Wireless Connections window.

And there you have it, you have setup to automatically connect to your Wireless Network (SSID) everytime you turn on your computer.

Now restart your computer and give it a few seconds, and voila, you are automatically connecting to your Wireless Network (SSID). Now you can surf the internet. You can set this on all your computers at home that have a wireless card.

Remember to give me a good rating and vote for me. If you require further tips and tricks, feel free to contact me through the contact box. I will post up your tip.

Have an acer Aspire One netbook and for some reason I cannot connect to the internet even though it is saying that a wifi connection has been established. This has never happened before


If you are connecting on an open WiFi (does not have WEP or WPA enabled), then make sure you are connected to the correct SSID (wireless ID) and not on some other open SSID. If you are on the right SSID, check that you don't have limited connectivity due to low signal strength. If OK, then open Internet Explorer to use its Diagnose Connection Problems tool...
1. click on Tools tab
2. click on Diagnose Connection Problems...
3. click on Next button and follow the steps
If unsuccessful, try powering off the wireless router and the cable/dsl modem for a few minutes and then powering up the modem first followed by the wireless router. Once the netbook has re-established the WiFi connection, repeat the above procedure to Diagnose Connection Problems. Finally, if still unseccessful, connect directly to your wireless router using an ethernet cable from one of the four RJ-45 LAN ports on the router to the netbook's 10/100 ethernet RJ-45 port on its left side. A LAN connection icon should now show in the bottom right of the Desktop's Toolbar. Hovering the mouse cursor over it shows the Local Area Connection pop-up with Speed and Status. If Status is connected, then open Internet Explorer again and use its Diagnose Connection Problems tool to check connectivity to the internet. If still unresolved, the next step would be to log into the router to check its WAN status and depending on the results, you may have to contact your Internet Service Provider.

I just got an Acer laptop for Christmas, and last night it wouldn't connect to the internet because the wireless adapter wasn't connected. I am on my desktop right now. I don't know how to fix my adapter....


First make sure the wireless switch is on...it looks like an antenna with radiating lines coming out of it...On your desktop you may need to go to network status to get the ssid and the wep key for the wireless...the wireless will not work if you do not have the proper network id (SSID) or if you have the security set for encryption(WEP,WPA etc..)...To figure this out you can go to network status and tasks...click this then look for the router or the wireless...click on the router...a box will come up with the wireless status....look for a tab marked wireless properties and click it this page should show the SSID for your network and the next page shows you the encryption type and a network security key..also on the SSID page it should have a link to copy the network settings to a usb drive...do this and then take the drive out of the desktop...put it in the laptop...goto network setup on the laptop and follow instructions to set up wireless access on the laptop...

My computer is not connecting to the wireless network


First step, check whether the LED that indicates wifi is lit on your laptop. If not turn it on. Check whether you can connect. Else.
Step2.To start with we assume that you have the icon showing your wireless (picture with a monitor and a red cross) is there. If that is the case, right click on this icon. Then click "view available wireless networks". You may see a list of names, which may say unsecured wireless, security enabled wireless and security enabled (WPA) network. Find the name of your network from the list. If you could find the name of your network and if it is showing fairly good signal strength and it is written manual there, you are almost there. click on the name of your network. Then click connect button at the bottom. You will see a popup asking you for the network key. Enter the key (password) and click the button connect. It will take a few minutes to connect and will go back to the previous page. You will see the status being changed to connect with a star. Close the window and you should be able to browse the net.
Step3:
If you do not see the name of your network, then you will have to enable SSID. meaning your wireless rounter has to broadcast the SSID.
To make it easier I am assuming you have the broadband device (modem) connected to the cable, all lights on it are lit, you have the router connected, to the broadband device through the
CAT 5 (network) cable to a desktop and the Internet symbol on the router is lit. (simply put you should be able to connect the Internet from a hardwired system). Open a web browser. Get hold of the quick connect guide you received with your wireless router. There should be a web address. something like 192.168.1.1 Enter that address in the address bar of your brwser and enter. You will reach the router configuration page. Enter the username (probably) admin and password (probably) admin . You will have this information also on the quick connection guide. click OK. Once the page opens, you will see the setup wizard. Click wireless setting and then click advanced on the left hand side. In the page that opens, click enable wireless router radio and click on enable SSID broadcast. Click apply and exit out. Your router may reset itself. wait a few minutes. check whether all LED's are on, on the modem, and whether the Internet icon is lit on the router. If yes check your laptop proceed to Step 2
If these steps do not succeed, you may go back to step 3 and configure the "Basic settings" on the setup wizard. However, if that is the case, it would be easier to call the customer service of your router company and let them walk you through the process.
