Although my router is working and I'm connected to


Make sure your wireless Adapter is on, my laptop has a switch on the front that turns it on and off. Also you can to to Control Panel/Network And Internet/Network Connections. Make sure your wireless Adapter is turned on in that menu. Happens to me all the time :)

Cannot switch on wireless connection Packard bell laptop does not have switch


Wireless problems with a Packard Bell PC or laptop can be caused by a variety of issues.


The best troubleshooting resources are the documentation that came supplied with the computer, and the Support section of the Packard Bell website.


Unable To Detect Wireless Network


If the Packard Bell machine is unable to detect a wireless network, the computer itself or the network could be at fault.


Check that a wireless signal is being broadcast via another PC or device, and check that are wireless adapter is installed, complete with the latest drivers, which are available at the Packard Bell website.


Unreliable Wireless Network


If the wireless connection is unreliable, intermittent or very slow, it suggests a problem with the Wi-Fi broadcast.


Try positioning the computer closer to the router broadcasting the wireless signal, or use a signal booster to improve the range.


Download and install the latest driver updates from the Packard Bell website and through the Windows Update tool.


Unable To Connect To Wireless Network


If the computer can detect the network but is unable to connect to it, a network security key may be required. This should have been configured by the person who set up the network. Consult the documentation that came with your router for details of how to change it or generate a new key.


Hope this helps

How do activate my wireless on packard bell


possible you will need a driver. just go on the device manager highlight the top pc icon(your pc name) and click on search for hardware changes and it will search the internet for a wifi driver.
Please note you will have to be connected to the internet via network cable.
what do you realy mean ''activate'' can you search/see the router you would like to connect? if yes you will need the code from the router not Laptop related.

Wifi - packard bell laptop


I sometimes have the same problem and usually it's because the router somehow looses connection with the laptop. You may require a stronger router/different kind of router. Have you tried to move the location of your router first to see if that could be one of the problems ?

Hope this works for you.

Packard Bell seems to have a decent support site here: http://support.packardbell.com/uk/item/index.php?m=step3&i=platform_orion_a This article may help, but need your model number to go any further. http://support.packardbell.com/uk/item/index.php?i=topic_02218&pi=platform_orion_a
