Sounds like it is connecting to another connection that does not have internet access. Figure out which network it is connected too and disconnect it, also set it so that it does not default to that connection. Then you should be able to go through your connection and connect to the internet. Hope this helps. Please let me know if you need further assitance.

Yes you need wireless router to use wifi in ipod touch or on laptop.
Connect your router to computer with ethernet cable then you can access it with following default link. http://192.168.1.1 or http://192.168.0.1 or http://192.168.15.1 or http://192.168.2.1 If you are not able to access it with above ip then check your computers ip address gateway ip is your router ip try with it. Then it ask for user name and password. Type user as "admin" and password as "admin" or "password" or blank. Then you can see configuration page of router. If you are still not able to access router with above ip then you need to RESET it for that press RESET button for 10 seconds it is in back side of router then all settings defaults..Then you can access it with above method.
Then click on wireless and enable it.
. Then click on wireless->wireless security->WEP security there is code password note down it or enter new password then save setting s and restart router. then you can connect wireless with new password. Let me know if you need further assistance. Thanks for using FixYa.

How to connect to a wireless network wi-fi?


There are two sides to the WIFI connection. Your computer's adapter and "client" and the location's router and SSID.

Senario 1: You are in a hotel. The computer pops up and says there are wireless networks available. You click on the pop up and it shows a list of sometimes funny name WIFI networks. Let's say you are in a BestWestern Hotel and the list shows bestwestern in the list. You click on the name bestwestern. At this point you will be asked or told on screen that you have to enter a Security key. You call down to the front desk and get the login information. Once entered, you are connected to that WIFI network. In most hotels, you need to then start an Internet Browser screen and agree to use their network.
Senario 2: You are at a friend's house. You turn on your computer and it pops up there are wireless networks available. All of the names are odd sounding and none of them are familiar. One of those networks shows a very strong signal. This network is probably your friends SSID. You can verify this with your friend. At the same time find out what the security key is for the network. Then click on the network name, enter the key and you will have connectivity to the Internet.

Some networks have access lists, where you can connect to the WIFI, but, if your computer is not listed in the router at the location, youstill have no access. This will require the owner of the network to add you PC information to the router to give you access.

I don't know how to use wifi on my Toshiba A45 S120


Open the Network Settings program. Click on the Control Panel in your "Programs" bar and select "Network Settings." This will give you options for modifying how you connect to the Internet. Select "Connect to a Network" or "Show Network Status and Tasks." Both selections will show you whether you are disconnected from the wireless network. Select "Manage Network Connections." This selection is located on the left side of the window; clicking on it will show you whether you are connected to a local area connection or wireless network connection. Engage the wireless connection. Turn your wireless switch to "On," then right-click on the wireless network connection. Select "Connect/Disconnect." Wait for the IP address acquisition. It may take a few minutes for your Toshiba Satellite to pick up the signal and transmit your IP address. When this is complete, you will see the word "Connected" next to the name of your wireless connection, and a series of bars that indicate signal strength. Launch your favorite browser to access the Internet using the wireless connection.

Pokemon wifi issue..cannot trade pokemon


If you have a wireless router for your internet you should have wifi in your house. To enable wifi on your nintendo ds. Insert the pokemon game and let it start up until you get to the main starter menu where it says New Game, Continue, Mystery Gift(If you unlocked it), and Nintendo WFC Settings. click the Nintendo WFC Settings than Nintendo WiFi- Connetion Settings. It will give you 3 tabs to set up your connections. If you already have 3, delete one
Once you click an empty one click Search for an Access Point, It should search for about 5-10 seconds than show you what connections you have and their names. Also an impotertant tip, If your internet router is locked you might want to get that key so you can enable the ds to use the internet otherwise it won't be able to connect.

Have just bought a computer second hand and have just got internet running with 100% signal but cannot connect because we cannot find local area connection to access files


As dragoness1 says, you don't need a LAN to connect. Right click wireless icon in system tray (bottom right of screen), select "show available Wireless networks". Select one and click connect. If they're not from your own Internet service, they may be protected by a password.

Wi fi light off


Hello Lisa

(01) Is the switch for your WiFi radio in the ON position?

(02) If it is, then it's possible your WiFi connection is (in your operating system) disabled or missing.

(03) If your operating system is Windows Vista, please, go HERE to learn how to access your network connections.

(04) If your operating system is Windows XP
(a) Click on START
(b) Click on NETWORK CONNECTIONS

(05) In either case, make sure your wireless connection is showing there.

(06) If your wireless connection is showing in your network connections, it is likely disabled. In that case, right click on it and choose ENABLE.

(07) Now, let's see if your WiFi LED lights back up for you.

(08) If it doesn't or if there was not a wireless connection in your network connections, please, post back here and let us know. We'll work w/ you to determine why it's missing.

Thank you,
BJ @:)
