    Do you mean wireless connection?

    Check that WIndows Zero Configuration is enabled and do not use third party application for wireless configuration.

    Do you need to set a WEP or WPA key?

    What wireless access point do you have - a, b, g or n ?

    What spec is your wireless card in the laptop?

You most likely are not using a proxy server. Ensure your settings mirror the above, especially the "Use a proxy server..." setting.

Cant access internet through wireless network.


How do you know your notebook is connected to your wifi AP? Did you try pinging the gateway? If not, open your command window & type "ping 192.168.0.1" (put in your own gateway address.) If you get replies, then ping something outside of your network: "ping 4.2.2.2" (this is a verizon dns server). If you get replies, then "ping yahoo.com". If it does not fail at any of the above steps, you don't have a connectivity problem. If you fail any of the above, then report back & we'll continue the troubleshooting.

It is connected to Tiscali but wont open internet, other lap top is fine using that to try and work out why it wont work. We have put the password in for the router, gets that but wont browse, originally...


try to ping websites. start>run>cmd> ping aim.com if it has replies it means you have an internet connection, if no replies you are not connected to internet. Now if it has replies and you cannot browse using IE then try to reinstall IE.

Asus PC 900 HD wifi connection failed?


check if the build in wifi finds your router/the home-WAN u already use(??)

turn over router, write down the WPA-nr (16 digits)

use logon program-tool provided with router or laptop,

if working, it should at least display some of the wifi-nets/hot-spots/WANs available at ur place,

then log onto your one, enter wpa-key(is password and for encrypting your connection)

choose defining ip-config using DHCP-standard/automatic ip-adressing,

a network-connection symbol may now pop up at lower right on the task bar :

and retry surfing.


good luck

No internet


Hi! Saft question but is the wireless connection switched on? on My Satellite there is a little switch at the front near the clasp the keeps the lid locked, turn it to the right and a little Amber light comes on.
If you are wirelessly connected and using Windows try hovering over the internet connction bars down to the right on your taskbar it should say wireless connections available click on to connect, also if using a secure network you'll need to input the security code for your p.c. to communicate. This should sort it!
Good Luck and a Very Happy New Year to you and your Family!

My Daughter's New Laptop's Internet Connection


Make sure that the Local area connection is enabled or installed properly. Also Cable ISP such as charter registers the MAC address of the main pc on their system that is why it will not recognize your daughters laptop. You can contact charter so they can register the mac address of her NIC on their system.

Go into your network settings and disable the ethernet and enable the wireless, you can also press Function F2 to enable wireless on a laptop. You may also try setting up wireless connection from the network settings if it still will not connect. Also you should be sure the network is not secured, and that your browser is told to never dial a connection.
