My wireless IBM R52 cannot connect to the wireless internet connectivity. I use a wireless routa(not sure about the spelling) but my pc does not recognise the internet. Can you give me advise on what the problem is and how I can solve it?
Okay i need to no what router you are using and what internet you have..
if you have a pass word on your router and no how to access the configuration settings on your router and had no success then look on the back of the router for a restart button.. then log in to your routers configuration and set it up again.. now if you only have a laptop and router you will need to use a network cable to access the configuration.. or if you have another PC connected to it..
look in the book with the router.. if your not sure give me details on what model the router is and if your running other computers off it and if your using DSL or ADSL internet.
networking is a pain sometimes
i have a router with 2 PC's and one wireless laptop..

Re: Wireless Internet connectivity not working.
Does it recognize your wireless network?
I your wireless switched on on the laptop, most laptop have a separate small switch to swicth on/off the wireless option, indicated by a small antenna with some waves.
Does it recognise any wireless network at all?
Try connect to a hotspot or unsecured network to see if that works. Double check all settings for your own network in your router and your laptop. 1 typo in a security password can be enough to be unable to connect.

The range on your wireless is maybe half a block. Most people that are getting free Internet are actually stealing it from someone that is paying for it by connecting by wireless. In the same time people have started securing their wireless routers by using security like WEP and WPA which require that your wireless device has the proper key to use the network, even the coffee shops and motels that offer free wireless are starting to use this method. If you have internet at your house and a wireless router and can't connect to it then that is because you don't have to correct key installed or your device isn't on the authorized list of MAC addresses. You will have to contact your provider to resolve that.
clarify please. dont have a clue what you did, or need to do. who do you use for internet, are you plugged in or wireless. if wireless make sure its on, usually a tiny switch or a combo of FN key and another key that looks like wireless being sent.
Make sure that the WLAN adapter is installed properly. Click on the
start button then right click My Computer icon, select properties, go
to Hardware tab, click Device Manager button, click the + sign beside
Network Adapters, check if you have your wireless adapter listed. If
your adapter is not listed you need to reinstall the drivers for it.
if you want to use wireless connection you have to have a wireless router, and you connect your internet cable into the router, so after you can have a wireless connection with your laptop and his wireless card, and you can work with your laptop everywhere in your house.
you can buy a wireless router in every computer shop.
last thing if you have a desktop PC you can connect a new internet cable to the wireless router (type RJ45)
I hope this helps Please rate accordingly Thank You sserpentio
