Do you have an wireless icon?

Are you able to view the available wireless networks? If you are, then highlight it (left click once), and click "connect".

If your router is public, without a key or password, if all things are set correctly, you should be connected.

If you still cannot connect, compare your wireless settings to another computer that is connected to the network.

If you still have configurations issues, seek more knowledgeable help locally.
Hope this helps!

How do you refresh an older model gateway laptop

To restore Gateways you hold down the ALT and the F10 keys, then it should show a boot sequence screen, choose HDD boot and press down ALT and F10 again then you will get the restore feature for gateway. If that doesn't work boot into windows and run the eRecovery program.

Wirless router

The last thing you want to do is get rid of the password - operating an unsecured WiFi network can be very hazardous to your privacy & finances! You need to set the WEP password in the PC's. If you install the 3Com router software and use that to set things up, it will guide you through doing the job.

Also, it's better to use WPA encryption rather than WEP which is now regarded as insecure and little better than nothing at all. If you can get it working OK on WEP, it'd be easy enough to change it to WPA in the router & then change the setup on the PC's.

Unless you live in the back of beyond, this really is necessary I'm afraid :{

My wireless network is no longer listed

Ok there needs to be a few diagnostics first.

Can you still connect to to router with a wired connection?

If so, can you veiw the settings for the wirless network,, and are they the same as before?

If you cant connect with a wired connection i'd probably say the router needs replacing.

Please let me know if you can connect with a wire and if you can access the wireless settings?

Right-click Wireless Network Connection, and then click Properties. 6. Click the General tab, click Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) in the This connection uses the following items list, and then click Properties. 7. In the Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) Properties dialog box, click Obtain an IP address automatically (if it is not already selected), and then click OK.

Note You can also assign a unique static IP address in the range of to For example, you can assign the following static IP address, subnet mask, and default gateway:
