You need to make sure that your laptop has a wireless card in it and if it's working properly. if it has a wireless card already, the wireless card should automatically detect your wireless router (the wireless icon is usually located at the bottom right hand corner of your screen) and you just need to connect using the correct wireless settings (ssid and wireless security).you need to also check if the wireless capability of the router is enabled. make sure to check if the wireless light on the router is on.

here are the steps on how to check the wireless settings of the router

- open a web browser using a computer connected to the router via cable. enter http://192.168.1.1 on the address bar.
- it will prompt you to enter a username and password, use "admin"
- it will now promt you with your router's screen, go to the wireless section
- check the wireless settings like the wireless name/ssid that are listed there since that would be settings that you need to use on your laptop (note: you can change the wireless name/ssid to something that you can remember easily and just saev the settings)
- check also the wireless security if it's enabled

hope this'll help you

ciao!

Probably your network is secured so you will need to configure connection (provide WEP or WPA passkey to connect).
Double click on wireless network name you wish to connect and put encryption key

Just bought this of ebay and cant connect to


Hello

The first thing that I would advise you to do is,

Uninstall the WiFi Adapter totally from the System first,

Then go to "scan for hardware changes",

This will bring up a prompt to install the new hardware found (Which is your Wifi Adapter).

After this, Press your Wifi button on the system and ensure that it is On, then Scan for wireless networks.

It should connect like that.

(In case you dont know how to uninstall the Adapter, Right-Click on my computer Icon, Properties, Device Manager, then select the Adapter under network adapters, and right click on it, then select uninstall.)

Hope this helps.

Goodluck

Can't connect Toshiba laptop to Linksys Wireless Routher!!


If this is a new router then the wireless is turned off by default. You need to log on to it and enable it. Don't forget to turn on security such as wep or wpa. Your toshiba should be able to see the ssid or id that each wifi broadcasts. It will also or should be the strongest signal you see.

If the router is older and the wifi is enabled then make sure that the security setting match on the toshiba. ie wep/wpa key. If it is more than about year old then you can have a failure of the wifi section. That means replaceing the router ( I have a stack of different brands all about 1 year old with a dead wifi section).

Not getting connected to the Broadband internet


Right click on the wireless LAN and then click Repair. Do this in the Control Panel - Network Connections. This will force the wireless LAN card to get a new TCP/IP address from your wireless router.
When you get this Limited connectivity message do a repair - this is a common problem - the wireless connection icon is also on your Task Bar, you can right click in it to do a repair.

I have a medion computor which is unable to connect to my wireless broadband. The wireless network is recognised, but it doesn't connect. i also have a laptop, but this connects to the wireless broadband....


first off it would be helpful to know some more details, do you know the answers to these questions? also i assume you are connecting to a wifi router in your home network.
1) is there a password for the wireless network you must configure? 2) what operating system are you using? 3) if the OS is windows, do you know if you are using the wireless network settings panel that is part of windows, or does it have another brand name when you click on the wireless or network icon?
some possible causes i can think of are:
1) settings got reset and it cant connect without a password or confirmation to join an unsecured network 2) a new network popped up near the one computer that doesnt work and is being preferred due to signal strength although it is not a valid choice for you to get online 3) in the case of windows, software provided by the wireless hardware manufacturer is fighting with the windows wireless configuration 4) the wifi card in the computer is broken

Wireless router says its working laptop says no its not


Your sister was accessing the wireless access point at school which is connected to the Internet/WEB access via a router and the school's broadband service provider.
For you to access the Internet using your wireless adapter on your laptop, you need your own wireless access point and connect it to a broadband ADSL or cable modem and then connect it to an Internet Service Provider. Some Internet Service Providers (cable and ADSL) can supply a combined modem/router/wireless Access point.
If you already have a broadband modem all you need is a wireless access point/router. You only need to configure the wireless access point and your wireless adapter so they will communicate with each other. Folow the instructions in the manuals.

My Wireless internet card don't work


i think you are a little confused, your laptop may have a wireless card internally, but you need a wireless broadband or cable router for the wireless adapter to pick up a signal.

A fax modem cannot be wireless and cannot be broadband as you cannot fax using a broadband connection.


Assuming you have a broadband connection you will need a wireless modem/ router or roter connected to a broadband modem, not a standard 56k dialup modem as they aren't wireless or broadband.
