Wi fi is on but still can't connect to the internet


Not only does Wi-Fi have to be on, but it has to be connected to a wireless access point (sometimes called a wireless router), and the wireless access point has to be properly connected to the internet.If the wireless access point/router has empty ports on it, plug your computer into one of those ports, and see if you can connect to ther internet then. If you can, the problem is somewhere between the wireless access point/router and the computer. Could be the transmitter part of the wireless router, could be the wireless network adapter on your computer, or could be the driver that runs the wireless adapter on the computer. If you cannot access the internet when you plug into the wireless ap/router, then you need to go one step "upstream." This would likely be the cable modem or DSL modem. Plug directly into that with your computer, and reboot both the modem and the computer (just unplug the power from the modem and then plug it back in to reboot the modem). If you can connect to the internet then, the problem is the wireless router/ap. If you cannot connect to the internet then, contact your ISP.

My laptop is Lenovo G460, i just want to ask if when you say laptop is it understood to be wi-fi?


Hello. I understand that you are asking if all laptops come with wifi built in. Nowadays, just about all laptops have wifi built into them. If you are looking at an older laptop, check the specifications. You can also just post the model of the laptop you are looking at and we will be happy to check for you. Understand that just because the laptop has wifi, does not mean you can connect to internet unless you have a wireless network you can connect to.

Thanks for using Fixya!

How do i connect my dsixl to the internet


Hi,
This is just a general guide ...

1) locate your cable modem connection on your notebook and open up its properties

2) in the advanced tab you should see the Internet Connection Sharing - click on Allow and choose Wireless Network Connection

3) Go back to Wireless Network COnnection, open up its properties

4) In the Advance tab, choose Computer-to-Computer (ad hoc)

5) UN-check the Automatically Connect to non-preferred Networks


Try that first with your built in Wireless Connection of the the notebook. For the USB stick, you should not have to change it to AP mode.

Cannot connect to open wireless network Invalid IP Address


Either the network requires you to manually configure your ip settings(unusual but not unheard of) or your wireless adapter is not set to get settings from DHCP. Check to verify that your wireless adapter is set for DHCP and if this is correct then you'll need to contact the administrator for the wireless AP and haver them check their settings.

Dell Studio 1535 Wireless Problem


If you are seeing access points, you need to make sure that you are connecting to them. You will get a message that you are connected. If the AP is secured, there will usually be a symbol that looks like a lock and that means that you have to know the name of the AP and also the secuirty key. You have to know that they are open access points, but be careful connecting to one that isn't a public AP. If it is just one in your area , you are technically "stealing" the connection and there have been some cases where people have been charged with theft for using an AP they weren't authorized to use.

Wireless connection


Hi,

There are a few requirements other than the laptop and the wireless card. You need to also have an Wireless AP/Router that must be connected to the modem that connects to your ISP. All your PCs must then connect to this router either using the wired/Ethernet ports or WiFi.

If such a device (WiFi AP/Router) already exists and is connected to your modem and your other PC(s) are tied up to it and can access the Internet, you need to install the drivers (in a CD that came with the wireless card) to your IBM ThinkPad. Thereafter, you need to configure your laptop's wireless networking to access the AP/router. Your AP/Router must also be configured to accept wireless clients.

Please post back with brand/model of your AP/Router.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned out or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Wireless internet connection


Hi, A couple of things you should check: 1. Has the "wireless internet user" enabled his Internet Sharing? If yes, how has is this user sharing it with you, through an AP/Router? 2. If he is using an AP/Router, are there any security settings enabled such as WEP, WPA, or MAC Filter? If yes, you have to get the security key and enter it into your configuration. 3. Is the DHCP Server in the AP/Router enabled? 4. If yes to #3, have you made your networking "Obtain an IP Address Automatically? 5. If no, you have to get/set the allowed IP address that you can use, Subnet Mask, Default Gateway and DNS Servers; 6. Can you ping the AP/Router or at least the "wireless internet" user IP Address. To ping, Start, Run, type "cmd", type "ping IP add of wireless internet user and/or AP/Router; 7. In your browser, enable Auto detect proxy settings for this connection; Pls post back with: a. How do you connect, a wifi card/USB or built-in? b. What AP/Router are you connecting to? c. What browser are you using, IE, Mozilla, Opera? Hope this be of some help/idea. Good luck and kind regards.
