Hello there. Im running with Windows 7, and I can't seem to connect via wifi.
The problem is that I can't switch on my wifi. I go to Windows Mobility Center, and Wifi stands as "Locked" in off position. Don't know what to do.
i've tried downloading drivers, without any luck tho. Anyone got any idea what to do?.. Perhaps Windows 7 is lacking?
just try one thing. on your internet browser just click on tools and then internet options. under the connection tab click on the lan settings and just check that the automatically detect settings is ticked.
You see, when you try to connect to the computer, your computer probably can't detect DNS settings. So what happens here is when your computer trys to connect to a wireless or wired connection, it needs a ip address and a DNS server. Hope people can explore this cause I did.
The following is done on a computer that is connected to your wireless router by wire or wireless. This means it must have a connection to the router to work.
Go to your command prompt. then type in ipconfig /all. It should show some specs. Notice that when you see your Ip address. Write down the following: Ip Address, Default Gateway, and both DNS servers.
After you see these and write them down, go to your Network connections. You should see 1 or more connections. Pick the one that you connect to the internet with. Right click and press property. you should see a list of connections or devices. Pick the one that ends with TCP/pv4 or something like that. Then press propertys.
Now here is where you get your paper. Click Use the following Ip address. Put in the Ip address, submask, and the gateway ip, or default gateway. Your submask should already type in after you put in your ip address.
Finally it is DNS server time. Make sure you put it in correctly, or it will not connect.
Put in the Perfered DNS Server
Then put it Alternate DNS server
Press ok, then close. Wait and you should be connected. Hope this helps.
Remove all the old Internet connections from your computer, including the telephone line and cables.
Before inserting the Wireless USB adapter in to the USB port insert the CD that came with it. Do not insert the adapter first.
Follow the instructions on the screen after the CD is installed.
Now insert the Wireless USB adapter into any of the available USB ports. A window will pop up on the screen and will search for the available network connections. If there are many available (sometimes your neighbor's) select your connection and click connect.
Enter the network key, if required. The network key can be obtained from your main hub computer that is connected to your wireless router. Open your network advisor on your hub computer and click on the tab 'Actions' click the link that says 'Add more computers' and follow the instructions on the screen. At the end it will give you a 16 digit number that you will have to write down. This is your network key that you will need to enter in the computer that you are adding to the wireless network.

I have a HP Labtop with Vista. I am having the same problem. The funny thing is that all of my connections are working fine, but the web page says that it can not be displayed. But the funny part is that Yahoo Messanger WORKS!!! But that web page does not. Any help would be nice.
I have a same problem with internet.I use BELKIN wireless network.(I use Vista) It connect to wireless but it could not connect to internet. I cannot use the internet for too long now I am using my friend computer to talk to u.u guys plzzz help me :( :( I need to do my School project with computer if not I will die :( plsss
i had the same problem, I went to control panel. then network and sharing center
-then I clicked on view status
I made sure everything was correct
-and typed in my password again ( the one that you set up for your wireless)
and it worked xD!
I had similar problems. It helped when I DISABLED ethernet (wire) adapter. Wifi immediately started to connect me to Internet. (after enabling ethernet adapter again it continued work allright).
How to disable adapter: double click on network icon on the status bar opens Network connection settings window. Choose the wire connection (usualy named Local Area Connection), rightclick on it and choose disable. (Then rightclick again and choose enable, let the wire work when you plug it in :-)
My problem was however, that when I booted my XP with WiFi on and unpluged, the WiFi worked. When I pluged in network cable it worked well. But when I unpluged etherent Internet stoped working even when WiFi was connected. I had to reboot the machine in order to connect through WiFi (just log off and on did not help). However reading this discussion I had an idea to try to disable wire connection and it worked. Thanx.
P.S does someone an idea how could I set my network and Internet connections so I do not need even disable ethernet in order to make WiFi connect me to the Internet?

I have a Sony Vaio, I was running Vista and was able to connect automatically to the wifi here in my house. I updated to Windows 7 last night and now it won't connect via wifi or ethernet cord. I tried to diagnose the problem it says something about wireless network adapter it makes no sense I've reset my router and I can't do a thing. Worse of all I didn't create a restore point so I can't go back to vista and Windows 7 won't let me use magic disc to boot windows Vista. I would greatly appreciate anyone who can help me solve this problem I'm going to start pulling my hair out.
Hi guys if you have both WIFI and Cable LAN you may have a conflict over where your PC should obtain internet access from. Remove the Default Gateway from your cable LAN, if you have set any but set static IP, and set the WIFI connection to DHCP Enabled. This should help.
I have an HP dv9420ca laptop. I have it dual booting with both vista and xp. The problem I'm having is in xp. For some reason a balloon will pop up saying I have available wireless networks but when I click on it, it never shows any. I know there's about 9 available networks around because my roomate can pick up on them and when I switch over to vista I can too. Does anyone have any suggestions?
