    It now works to the stage of saying "wireless connectivity
    firewalled" and on the status it shows a closed padlock, can you
    please let me know how to unlock it. Please use very simple terms as I
    am not very experienced.

You need to disable any eventual firewall.
Firewall is a a security barrier on your netwoek
Double click on the red or yellow shield sign near the clock and disable firewall.
Alternatively go to control panel
open security center
open firewall setting
disable temporarily firewall

If you have installed any additional firewall such as Zone Alarm, Norton internet Security etc. you will need to set them or to disable them as well.

Try also the following:
Turn off computer
Restart router
Restart computer and conect to wireless LAN, this will help router in setting his internal friewall. If it still does not work you need to set roter firewall that is more complicate.

The key phrase in your question is "disconnected, firewalled". This means the network connection will be firewalled if "UP". However, the wireless connection isn't connecting to the wireless access point.

Turn off the built-in firewall (good form, although not the issue I suspect). Then let's work on the wireless link.

First, the wireless connection has to "see" the access point. Right-click on the wireless icon on the toolbar (lower right of screen) and select view wireless connections.

You should be able to see your wireless access point. If not, the drivers for the wireless card are wack. Reinstall them and focus on getting the card to see the WLAN.

If it can see it, you'll need to work on getting a "connection" to the WLAN. If WEP is enabled and working on the rest of the computers, check the WEP key on the eMachine and make sure it's exactly (twice) the same as the access-point.

2 steps here - get the card "talking" and get WEP configured. All this assumes you are using WEP as your authentication mechanism.

A closed padlock means that there is wireless security active on that network. Now. Check your IP address.

1.Click start then run then type in cmd
2. Type in ipconfig then hit enter
What is your IP

I've just bought a secondhand acer travelmate 2310 & want to enable the wireless LAN so I can conect to the internet?


On the front edge of the computer next to the sound card jack is a small bar, pushing in on the bar should bring up a message on the screen saying wireless enabled or disabled.
