Hi, i dont have a wifi connector, i just have my laptop, 3 network dongle and a ds lite. Without using a connector why mite i not be getting the access point if the 3 is a wireless broadband?

    the laptop i bought from currys, it's a E-SYSTEM intel core T2080 1.73Ghz. It has wireless LAN b/g, 10/100 Mbit LAN. Works on Windows Vista. I just got it last yr.



    And my 3 usb modem is model E220 3G/HSDPA. I mostly get a 3G signal never really the HSDPA which i hear is stronger.



    Just to say that last night i changed a setting on my laptop, i went into wireless settings and manually put in the name being ds then WEP, then a password. When i tried my ds again it seemed to recognise something and it asked me to put in the WEP Key. I just dont know where to find it or if this laptop has wep in it.

    oh sorry, when i chose the setting i chose the wireless thru adhoc setting and think thats why it also was recognised and thats what i went into to put in the name of device, wep and password.



    Plus i have kept my wireless switch on at front of my laptop.



    Thanks

    Because you have to put your computer in a special mode called 'adhoc' for the ds lite to see it.

    Can you give me the model number of your laptop, and who made it?

Wep is just a 10digit key, try putting the same one on the laptop, and the DS

I have purchased a bluetooth usb dongle and cannot see where to plug it into my aspire sa80 computor


Hello there.

I have found a picture of the back of your computer. Please see below. The picture is a little small im sorry.

A bluetooth dongle connects over the USB port in your computer, while you have some slots in the back you should have some in the front as well. They look like this:

3network mobile dongle wont work


Hi,
Three options:
1). Try another USB port on the PC / Laptop. I have discovered that some USB ports mess up sometimes.
2). Check if you have a firewall software on this computer (some of those that normally pops up with messages at the bottom-right of your screen saying things like 'Allow, Block, etc". If you have one of such, you may want to go into the setting and disable firewall briefly and test your Dongle again. If it now works, then Allow the Dongle in the firewall settings.
3). Uninstall the Dongle. Shutdown and restart your computer. Go to Program files and delete the folder where the program was installed. Then use the CD that came with your Dongle to do an install. Then finally connect your Dongle. Should work.

How to enable wireless network on targa computer


Harry, If you mean to access WiFI, then all you have to do is buy a WiFi dongle. Install it and then insert the dongle into the USB port. and you are on. But, if you want to run a WIFi hot spot on your PC, then you need to install a wireless router so that other devices having a WiFI capability can connect to it. You need to set up a WireLess LAN for which there exists a wizard in Windows.

Hi In spain we have an apartment which has a wifi system in the golf clubhouse. It works fine with my PC laptop but not with an apple mac laptop. Is there any reason?


Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initially, pls determine the IP address of the Windows laptop. Pls include Subnet Mask, Default Gateway and DNS. Power off the Windows laptop. Thereafter, set the MAC to static IP address and copy the numbers from the Windows laptop to the Mac. Soon as the Mac is working, power on the Windows laptop. If ther wil be an instance that Windows displays that the IP/Network address is already in use. power down the Windows laptop. Modify the Mac by increasing the last digit of the static IP addres by at least 1. Try again.

This is of course assuming that the WiFi of the Mac is working and there are no security WEP/WPA being used on the WiFi router.

Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa. Happy Holidays.

You would need to set the Wifi Usb Connector in adhok mode You will then need to Bridge the connection between the wifi usb connection with your internet connection.

You could do that, or buy a wireless router (these serve as an access point)
