I have had this situation twice before, it may need to be enabled in the bios so on boot up press F2 or Del depending on bios and look on peripherals menu. If not there look for wireless lan, and I will bet that the option to enable or dissable is greyed out. if so; if it's new take it back to supplier as after 2 hours of phone calls to HP doing everything i did myself hours previously, they could not remedy the problem, hence 2 notebooks were returned to pc world for a refund.

A number of possible fixes come to mind. First access hardware list in control panel under system, then click on device manager, then device manager, then look down the list to network adaptors. Opening list should indicate network (wireless card). If not refresh list. If no luck, or unknown card shows up, hit update driver. If no listing at all, try shutting machine down, removing card from under cover from base of machine, restarting machine without it. After waiting for machine to settle, shut down again, re-instate card and restart. The card should be seen and seek driver under windows new device setup screen. If still no good, card or slot (PCI) or both could be crook. PCI slot failure will mean a new mother board, unless you alternate to a PCMCIA card (wireless) or the same in a USB device. All else fails take it to a tech, or more to the point, if under warranty from HP (or extended) as its a relatively new machine, DONT TOUCH and ring HP or take to a service centre.

Wireless antenna or wireless router


Did your ISP Boingo supply you with a DSL or cable modem with a built-in wireless router? If only a DSL or cable modem is supplied and you wish to connect to the Internet by wireless then you need to connect a wireless router to this DSL or cable modem.

You can connect to the Internet using a LAN cable from your laptop to the DSL or cable modem.
If your laptop as a built-in wireless card you can to the Internet via the wireless router.
If you laptop does not have a built-in wireless card then you can install a PCMCIA wireless card into the card slot of your laptop to the Internet via a wireless connection.

How can i setup a wireless connection on my laptop


Hi,

Depending on the model etc of your laptop, some have built in wireless adapters others don't so you need to buy a wireless adapter card so that you are able to connect to the internet.

Also you will need a network which has wireless built in if at home for you to connect to the internet, through the wireless adapter on your laptop.

Hope this helps, let me know if you need more information.

Thanks

Laptop doesnt connect to wireless internet (wireless card is fine


When you reformatted your HD, did you use IBM's method which utilizes a hidden partition? This results in a laptop which appears to be as if it just came from the store, like a brand new laptop.
This method sets up the computer in the exact way that IBM built it. And puts all devices in their proper configurations.
If you have not done too much yet, you might want to try that method right away and see if it doesn't make a big difference in the way your laptop works.

How to connect to the Internet with the built-in


Do you mean a wireless network card? I am assuming you meant the wireless card. In windows donw in the bottom right there is a connection Icon. Right click on that Icon and select open network and sharing center. Then select your wireless network.
If you do not have a wireless network, yes you do need a wireless router.
If you do have a wireless network already set up, you will need to configure the settings so you can connect to it. Whatever the password is a so on.

Has An Acer Travelmate 243LC laptop got a build-in Wireless?


The link below will take you to a page on the Acer Web site that shows the specs for this laptop. According to the specs, this laptop does not come with onboard wireless (if this feature were part of the system, it would be listed in the specs). Also, you can check Device Manager to see if you have a Wireless Adapter listed under Network Adapters. If you don't see any type of Wireless adapter listed then you'll definitely know that your laptop doesn't have it built in.

To access Device Manager:
Right-click My Computer
Click Properties
Click Manage
In the left navigation pane, click Device Manager.
In the larger window, scroll down the list to Network Adapters.
Expand the Network Adapters tree to see the installed adapters.

http://www.acersupport.com/notebook/html/tm243lc_specs.html

However, the specs do show that this laptop has 2 PC Card slots. These slots give you at least a couple of options for connecting to the Internet. You can buy an Air Card that is installed in one of the PC Card slots when you want to use it to access the Internet. My company used to provide Air Cards for laptop users through AT&T. The advantage is that you have an uninterrupted connection to the Internet no matter your location.

You can also buy a WiFi card that fits into a PC Card slot. This card will be your Wireless NIC (adapter) providing you with the means to set up connections to wireless networks. Linksys is a pretty good brand and fairly easy to install and support. After installation and configuration, you can pop the card in your PC Card slot anytime you want to connect to a Wireless network then remove it when it's no longer needed.

I hope this helps you connect wirelessly using your laptop. Please rate this solution and thanks for using Fixya.

Hi there!

I want to help you out. I have some questions to ask you first:

1. What brand and model are your wireless router and laptop?
2. Does the laptop have a built-in wireless card or you installed one?
3. If it's has its built-in wireless card, check the wireless switch of the laptop. ICheck if it is on or off (some laptops sometimes has an on/off switch)
4. Check if the wireless light on your router is on (it's sometimes refered to "WLAN")
5. How many wired & wireless computers do you have and their operating system?

Your physical connections are correct. BTW, can you also specify what port from the modem is going to the router? Some routers have 1 port named "Internet or WAN" and 4 ports for "Ethernet." Check if the modem is connected to the "Internet or WAN" port.
