You have to run Win2K or better to get the card to work properly.

Hi, assuming you are running WinXP, you might want to try: 1) right click on your wireless networking icon and click repair; or 2) double click on the same icon; click on properties, scroll down to/click TCP/IP to highlight, click on properties - Tick Obtain an IP address automatically if your access point is also acting as DHCP server; or 3) get IP add + others from your Network Admin and entered numbers given; or 4) self-assign IP numbers that are pretty near your Access Point (AP) IP #s, maybe something like where your AP is, subnet mask should be the same as your AP (normally but may be different) and your default gateway normally would be the IP Add of your AP ( or whatever the AP is using) DNS could be obtained from your ISP or tick obtain automatically. Caution here that the IP number you select should not be currently in use in your network. 5) Open IE, go to tools/internet option/connection, remove any dial-up if no longer needed and check never dial a connection (assuming you don’t use a modem and would connect normally via wireless. Go to/Click LAN settings, check auto detect settings, make sure Proxy server is uncheck. 6) Ping any website from your command prompt to see if you get a response If all else fail, pls post your AP hardware (brand/model), OS. It might also be a good idea to check if your AP is connected to an ISP with an active account and that your modem is working ok. Please let me know if this works out ok for you. Cheers.

    Hi Darth, yes a modem has to be connected to the Access Point for you to be able to access the Internet. Without a modem, you can connect to the AP but you won't be able to access the Internet. Cheers

SOURCE: connected to acess point but internet

The first thing you should try is connecting one machine via a cable to the router, to see if the connection is stable. This will prove the router is working, or not, as the case may be. Assuming the router still fails to function properly, you can then replace it.

However this assumes that the modem and internet connection are working properly. If either is causing the problems, then the router might be just fine.

But if the router does appear to work fine when wired in, then it at least proves everything outside the router is fine. And while it is possible, it is rather unlikely that just the wireless part of the router failed without killing the switch/router part.

So try this, and once we have the result, we can take the next step

Okay so im trying to use my dsi's internet and it says something (i forget what but thats not it)anyways i got to connection settings and put my password for the internet thing then i go to save and run...

if your using search for acess point it will find your own acess if you put manual setup it has 99% posibility that the error happens if it says no acces point in range move closer to your computer and it may work if it doesnt it means theres a problem with the telephone line so tell a fixer for the telephone line to help or tell your parents

This is very easy to fix. Go to the wii menu, and click "settings" or someting like that. Click on internet.
Then click none, wireless, and search for acess point. Click the thing with 3 bars or less. 3 is best, 1 is terrable. Then try to go on the internet.

Can't get internet on mi ipod touch!

To watch videos online from Youtube from you iPod Touch, you must be connected to an active internet connection via wi-fi.
To connect to a wi-fi access hotspot, Go to Settings>Wi-Fi. Now, look under Choose a Network':
-If there is a connection showing, then touch the network name to connect to it. After, retry Youtube and your problem should be solved.
-If there aren't any connections showing, then you do not have a acess point nearby.
-If you do not have a acess point nearby, you can always setup one at your very own home with a router.
