Wireless connection to internet

I am connected to internet but cannot get a wireless connection

Posted by david940 on

    If the access point has SSID broadcast ON, then it can connect.

    But if broadcast is not on, then even with the details correct, it will not connect. I have to turn on ssid broadcast in order to get connection. Windows claims that the key is wrong, when event says that timeout occured on sharing keys.

    Without changing anything else and turning on ssid broadcast on the access point, it then works.

    Connected wireless to router, excellent signal, but unable to connect to internet.


    connected to wireless router with excellent signal may not means you are connected to internet. make sure your modem provided by internet service provider has signal! connect your computer to modem directly bypassing router. If you are online that means your internet is functional. Then connect modem to your Linksys router and use your wireless to log on to internet.
    Your router wireless signal active and excellent means you are connected to router not necessarily the internet. The modem supplied by your internet service provider with active internet should be connected to you router on WAN port!
    good luck!!

    I would like to know when it say laptop with built in wireless. Does that mine i already got internet service on it. Or i have to buy USB modem.


    Hello Blac,

    All the laptops available in market have built in wireless 802.11 b/g/n or 802.11 b/g/n Bluetooth® wireless networking. It means that you can access the internet via Wi-Fi or through Wi-Fi hotspots. In wireless connectivity you do not require the wired connection to access the internet. In home you can connect the laptop via wireless connection using the home networking router available in market. The advantage of wireless connection is that you can use the internet in your home anywhere with in 100 meters of range with proper wireless signals. You will require to get the internet connection from the ISP(Internet Service Provider).

    The wireless internet connection wont work. we previously had a wireless connection and now it wont register. we lost the connection completely and it doesnt show up on the list of internet connections....


    Try turning off the router for 30 secs, then power it up again.
    Then try connecting a LAN cable from the computer to the router and see if you can connect to the Internet.
    If you can connect to the Internet then -
    With the LAN cable open a browser and type in the configuration URL and check the Wireless settings, then check and/or the wireless card settings (it should have the router's SSID and encryption settings etc.)
    Also install the latest wireless card driver.
    Then test the wireless and Internet connection. If this doesn't work -
    Next connect the computer with a LAN cable to the cable or DSL modem to see if you can connect to the Internet.
    If you cannot get an Internet connection with the LAN cable, contact your ISP and get them to test the connection to your modem.
    If the modem and Internet is OK and you still cannot get a wireless connection then the problem could be a faulty wireless router.
