WiFi causes system freeze

When I switch on the WiFi using the slide switch at the bottom my system will freeze. I may get one 'tap' before it does but that's all. When I switch it off again all is well and some of the 'taps' made during the frozen period are then acted on. Everything else seems to work, just no WiFi. This also happens right after a hard reset. I am running 1.0623.409. Any suggestions?

I have really no idea what the problem can be. Check if there is some WIFi driver update available.

How do i get a signal on my galaxy prime core I cannot get internet

Hi Christopher, If no Wi-Fi and you're trying to connect to your home Wi-Fi The password is on the back of the modem in the house, Write it down then go into your phone and tap "SETTINGS" and tap "CONNECTIONS", Then tap on "Wi-Fi" and make sure it's switched on(should be a slide switch there), Once switched on it should start scanning automatically for networks, but if not then there's a scan button there somewhere. When it finds the modem just tap on that WiFi setting and a small window opens for the password, Type in the pass word tap "OK" and you're connected... Below is a link to a short YouTube video explaining pretty much the same thing I said..... I hope this helps..., CHEERS..

    I phone 5

    What Type/Brand of router ?????

    Apple's iPhone is a multimedia connectivity tool.
    As such, the iPhone employs a sophisticated system to keep you connected to the web via WiFi signals so that you can stay up to date with email, mapping and media.
    To use the iPhone's WiFi feature just follow these steps.
    Tap a network.
    If you have not yet used your iPhone's WiFi or if you're in a new WiFi area, the iPhone will show you a list of available networks.
    Tap the network that you want to connect to in order to connect.
    If there is a password required a little lock icon appears.
    Enter the password to connect to locked networks and continue to surf the web.
    Monitor your signal.
    As you use your iPhone, especially if you're moving around, you should take a look at the signal strength of the connection.
    The strength is indicated by a small, black broadcast symbol that stacks arches, or rounded bars, on top of one another.
    The more bars there are the better the signal.

    Make connecting to WiFi automatic or manual.
    The iPhone is equipped to automatically search for available networks and connect you to one.
    If you do not want the phone to search for networks, select the "WiFi" option on the phone's menu.
    Then select either the on or off option of the "Ask To Join Networks."
    Turning this option off requires that you find networks manually.

    Forget a network.
    Once you connect to a WiFi network once the iPhone automatically remembers the network and connects you to it at a later opportunity.
    To forget a network so you don't get automatically connected choose the "WiFi" option on the menu.
    Then tap the right arrow button next to one of the networks that the iPhone already remembers. Then tap "Forget This Network" to erase the phone's memory of the network.

    Troubleshoot Wi-Fi Connection Problems on an iPhone
    If you experience Wi-Fi connectivity issues on your iPhone, you may need to reset the Wi-Fi connection.
    Your connectivity issues could be caused by the wrong password if you are having trouble logging into the Wi-Fi network or from a problem in your iPhone's settings.
    By resetting the Wi-Fi connection, you are clearing out the previous settings created when you first connected to the network.

    Tap the Settings icon on the iPhone's home screen, and tap the Wi-Fi tab.
    Swipe the switch on the Wi-Fi tab to ensure Wi-Fi is enabled on your iPhone.
    Tap the blue arrow button on the network tab you are connected to in the network list, and tap "Forget this Network."
    Tap the "Forget Network" button that appears on the pop-up menu to confirm the action.

    Tap the Wi-Fi Networks tab in the upper-left corner to return to the previous screen, and tap the network's tab in the network list to re-join it.
    Press the Home button on the iPhone, and tap the Safari icon on the home screen to test the Wi-Fi connection.
    Tap the blue arrow icon on the network's tab if the connectivity problem persists, and tap the "Renew Lease" button at the bottom of the network's window.
    Tap the "Renew Lease" button on the pop-up box to confirm the action.
    Tap the Home button on the iPhone, and tap the Safari icon on the home screen to test the network connection.

    I think there is a sliding button to switch on wifi on my Lenovo 3000 N100 but it doesn't seem to be working.

    Hi supriyamahta,

    That's right, there's a physical wifi switch for your Lenovo 3000 N100. It's located on the front panel of your machine. It should be toggled on the right side if you wanted to turn it on. If it's not working you might need to turn on it's wifi soft switch. All you have to do is to press the Fn + F5 button. In any case and still you will be encountering the same issue that wifi switch can't be turned on I will ask you to contact Lenovo so they can give you proper recommendation on how the wifi switch can be replaced.

    Hope it helps.

    Thank you for using Fixya.

    I don't know how to activate Wifi in my pc aspire 5720Z.. Would you please help me

    There is usually either a button or a slide switch that controls if the wifi is on or not. It is marked with an icon that looks like a tower with two curved bars coming out of each side. Be sure that switch is set to "on". Secondly, you will see a small icon in your system tray (bottom right hand side of your screen) that looks like two little computer monitors. You need to click on that and have it search for wireless networks. Once you find your wireless router simply click on that router and click connect.
