Laptop wireless connection

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.

My compaq cq60 connect to the wireless but won't connect to the internet


Have you tried restarting your broadband modem/router? As although your laptop is connecting to your broadband modem/router perhaps your modem/router is not connecting to the outside world. Once you have restarted your router, if you are still having problems, login to your router and check it's connection status. If it says anything other than "connected"/"ok"/"healthy", something along those lines, I would contact your ISP and check the status of your line. At this stage, if they confirm your line is working I would check the laptop for viruses/malware.

Unable to print on wireless network or send e-mail


Recheck that the printer is shared by the computer it is connected to and that all PCs are on the same network. If no success try disabling the firewall on the pc that your printer is connected to. (If printing now works readjust the firewall permissions).

On the second open Internet Explorer; Tools; Internet Options; Connections and make sure that there is a selection for... Never dial a connection.

I have a dell inspiron laptop. It quit connecting to internet.


You may have to upgrade your Router's Firmware - so will need to know what make & model is your router?

In the meantime here are one or two actions you can take:

1. Disable Windows Firewall

2. In Internet Options Control Panel go to the connection tab and then the LAN Settings where you can uncheck the "Automatically detect settings" button.

3. If you have any third party software, I would get rid of this and ensure that the"Windows Zero Configuration" in the Services menu is set to "Automatic" and the status is started.

Interestingly, Anti Virus programs sometimes interfere with wireless set up - you could see if it helps by disabling it whilst configuring your wireless. It might also be worth trying to connect without any encryption code & see if that will connect - you can then sort out the encryption.

I can't get on he internet or check my email


check wireless status to confirm you have full access. You may have the wireless connection but not the internet connection. Power cycle the router. Temporarily turn off the firewall. If you have another system, test the connection with it.

No internet connections found


First, you need to be sure that the wireless networking adapter is enabled.

  1. From the Start menu, click Control Panel.

  2. In Control Panel, click Network Connections.

  3. Check the status of Internet Connection and Local Area Connection that indicates WIRELESS (it's most likely a Broadcom product).
  4. If either item says disabled or not connected, right click and select ENABLE from the menu.
  5. Close all open dialog boxes and windows.
  6. Use the Windows XP Wireless Zero Configuration, located in the system tray at the bottom of your screen, to test the adapter.
  7. Double-click the icon with one monitor and 3 wave lines on the right side. Your network should be detected.
If that doesn't pan out, post back and I'll give you Plan B.
