Laptop not connectiong to wireless network

I have a 2Wire router and use DSL on my desktop. I run the laptop via the wireless connection. I tried to use the internet on the laptop today and it says no available wireless connections in area. Usually it can pick up other connections in addition to our own. I'm not sure if the Wireless light on the router isn't on because the connection isn't being used or that its not working.

Is there a switch on the laptop either in the power management software or an actual switch on the laptop case (or a button) that turns the wireless on and off? That's probably the problem, not your router.

Can't add my new laptop to my at&t 2wire DSL.

Have you done a network search with the laptop? Is wireless activated on the laptop? Have you reset router? Plug the actual network cable to configure the laptop first then, once you do that, it should be recognized by the router, some router models requiere you to do this before you can connect to them wirelessly...

You can install a either a 4 jack wireless router( cost about $25). This will allow you to either cable 4 PC's or connect your PC's via the wireless feature. The instructions that come with the wireless router will give you installation instructions (it's fairlly easy). Make sure you secure your network with at least WEP security.

I have a 2wire router from AT&T, all lights are green, except the "wireless" light. It's not on, how do I become wireless?????

Hi dilex
The 2wire router wireless light comes only when a system is connected to it wireless.

Please post the system that you are using and also what exactly when you try to connect via wireless.

Thank you

2WIRE wireless router/DSL from AT&T

unless this is a wireless enabled or lan RJ45 connectable printer you cannot, the pc that the printer is connected to must be on at the time of the printing.

Wireless printers have their own arial and allocated ip address, Lan RJ45 connective printers can be connected to the router.

Connecting 2wire router with desktop pc and laptop

hi! try to check the settings on your 2wire modem, you can do this by going to gateway.2wire.net, run the system setup wizard, when you get to the ppp authentication page, check the username & password on it, it should be the one that you setup for your ISP account. as for the wireless on the desktop, it depends on the brand of the wireless adapter, be sure you have installed the drivers for this adapter. you may need to go to the client utility manager or the wireless adapter shortcut/icon on your computer screen then configure it to "see" the 2wire network. make sure wireless encryption is turned on in the 2wire modem's MDC, you can do this by going to homeportal/management, or go to gateway.2wire.net/mdc.
