Can you connect to the Internet using the LAN cable?
Have you configured the wireless card in your laptop with the router's wireless settings?

Network Key (WEP, WPA, WPA2 Encryption key)To connectyour computer to a wireless router, you click the Refresh networklist, then Choose your wireless network and then click Connectto your secured Wireless Network, it will asks for a Network Keybefore allowing you to connect into your wireless network. This NetworkKey is either the WEP, or WPA or WPA2 Encryption key that is used toconfigure the Wireless Router. The Passphrase is an alternate way tosetup the Encryption key.
When you are requested for a Network Key, you can just enter the Passphrasethat was used to configure the Encryption key in the wireless router.http://www.fixya.com/support/r5270415-network_password_network_address

I've been having the same problem after I change my Aztech router to D-Link. I hope these can help you because my problem solved after doing it.

Go to Control Panel > Internet Options > Connections > LAN Settings and make sure you check the 'Automatically detect settings' option box and the other two boxes is left unchecked. Good luck!!!

SOURCE: trouble connecting to wireless network

Hello

You probably have a virus. To check for sure goto Start, Run and type cmd. Once the DOS screen pops up type ipconfig /all. If this shows data in all the lines (not zero's) then type ping Sony.com on the next line. If that comes back saying that Reply and then an address, this means that your actual internet is working fine and that your browser is infected or corrupted. If possible download the virus cleaner from www.avgfree.com and from www.download.com download malware bytes. You can download these at your local libray. Run these to clean your machine and then your browser should be fine. Also, get superantispyware from www.superantispyware.com.

Good Luck

SOURCE: purchased a 7in sylvania at CVS and although it

The WiFi software that is embeded into the OS does not work very well. Fortunately digitalgadget.com has a download that somewhat fixes this problem fairly well. The new download is not totally goof proof, but you can work with it.

Go to: http://www.digitalgadgets.com/netbooks/update.html and download the indicated update. You can copy it to a thumb drive and connect the thumb drive to your Sylvania , find it under My Computer and then copy it to your desktop and run it from there.

DIR-815 Signal strength excellent but no internet


Possibly the power outage caused your modem to reset. The wired connection would still work. first thing I would try is to reset the modem with the reset button, login to the management console and put in your network name and password again.

Hello
Wow youve done almost everything here.How about the firewall? is it blocking any connections?

Next,Go to control panel,network and sharing center.Look and see if the pc or laptop in question is on the same network,meaning home or public.

Set all your machines to the same network.Either home or public.I do know this has been a win 7 problem.

Installed Trendnet wireless adapter. Connection shows excellent but can't browse internet


The "excellent" is the signal-strength between your wireless adapter
and your wireless router.
You still need to select the SSID ("network name") that you configured into the router, and enter the password for your network, before you can connect to the Internet.
Compare it to having a brand-new mobile telephone. Until you dial a friend's number, and the friend answers, all you have is an "excellent" telephone.

well if the connection you are trying to use is secured you will need a password to connect to it. if the connection you are trying to use is not locked well then you are to far from the router. in all case please be mindful if you didnt know that the signal strength of the connect must be at 32 percent and be mindful 32 percent is the beginging. your signal strength should be atleast 50 or better in my opinion for it to be good. goto the NYPL and try to connect there. their wi-fi is free and you will get an excellent signal and that way you will know if its the wifi adapter on ur psp dat is bad

I can't get internet connection even though it says my connection strength is "excellent."


The netbook is working fine. The WiFi connection or SPID may require you to login as in it is a protected signal. The "Excellent" means that you are receiving an excellent signal from the router. What you want is internet access which is upstream of that. Try a different SPID or connection.

Samsung NC10 will not connect to any network


If WLAN and Wireless cards are enabled, then you may have to unplug your router for 10 seconds to reset it. They tend to build up a static charge. Unplug wireless router for 10 seconds, plug back in and you should be fine in a minute or two with full connectivity
