Assuming you have set up the router to enable DHCP which automatically detects pc's and assigns an automatic ip address, and assuming you are using XP and not Vista, although the workthrough is similair; go to open internet explorer>tools>internet options>connections tab and ensure that never dial a connection is ticked, then apply and exit IE

Next go to control panel>network connections, double click your wireless connection icon, select the TCP/IP line and click properties, then make sure obtain an ip address automatically is ticked, apply it ok, then open IE again and click the refresh button a few times.

One tip for you is make sure you are using one software to run your wireless card, either remove the software for the wireless card and let windows configure it, or tell windows you have a excisiting software that will control your card, it sounds like software conflicts one is turning on other is tunring off and so on.

Maybe, the router is not allowing the connection to the internet. It can also be that the cable from the modem to the router is not placed on the right slot.

Unable to re-connect laptop to internet via wireless router


Reset all again.
Power off the modem, router, and PCs and wait 20 seconds or so.
Then power up the Modem first, then the router, and finally your PCs, wait a couple of minutes and try to connect.

Re:ISlow nternet in my Toshiba Satellite Laptop


You need to secure your router. Your router might be unsecured and your neighbors can connect to it without you knowing and you get to share the bandwidth of your internet to them which causes it to slow down. Contact your router manufacturer and have them assist you securing it. Others tend to connect to unsecured network and have free internet.

Hope this helps.

Wireless connection


With the computer facing towards you - on the right side, first switch there (looks like a slide) is the wireless (on/off) switch.

Next after that is to check if any other wireless computer is reading your wireless signal - for it could be your modem/router.
