I was away on business for a month and when I returned home, my laptop did not recognize my wireless internet service. During my trip, I used the internet service at other locations, but the one at home has stayed the same, without interruptions.
I can use my home internet only by connecting with an Ethernet cord. Yes, my wireless is "enabled" on my laptop.
What OS do you have?
Assuming you're using Windows, try (1) rebooting your modem and router, then (2) telling your computer to "Forget this network" (if it shows up at all) then (3) reconnect with your Wi-Fi password.
It's Windows 7 Home Premium.
I believe I already did what R2 suggested, but I'll try again.
R3 So is your network not showing up at all under "available wireless networks"?
No, it shows up as available, but unable to connect.
Did you try pressing the "troubleshoot" button?
Are you sure you--
1. Turned off modem and router for at least 20 seconds, then on again
2. Turn off laptop for 20 seconds, then on again
You're on the internet.
Google your brand of Modem and how to reset your wireless connection.
Does it show up in your wireless list? The other person is right, forget that connection then go into properties and make sure your "network and sharing settings" as well as delete everything under "Manage wireless network(NOT "manage connections) (left hand side under networks and sharing). Delete everything there that is wireless..whatever shows up, even your old settings.
Go into your router it'll be something like 192.12xxx blah blah blah whatever your router brand uses and make sure you're broadcasting and everything is right there. You can do that connected to ethernet.
Sorry guys, couldn't get it to work. I'm tethered to my Ethernet cord.
R10 Turn everything off, then start over. Let us know what kind of responses you get. Does your router show that it's connected to your modem? (Appropriate lights or whatever are blinking?) Does your network name show up on your computer?
Worse comes to worst, you can always reset your router and start over with a new password and everything. Or you may just need a new router.
Op, this is very important:
Use your main finger to deactivate the combinator switch. Then, simultaneously, use your other finger to establish a power connection with both the input and output valve relays. Don't forget that the fireframe MUST be in the reset position, otherwise you will have to generate a new protocol key. Once you've made sure both valve relays are in the correct position, initiate a port transfer using the password you set up when your internet service was installed. Your laptop should say "Boot:Task 3431" or something like that at this point. Hit Del, Enter,Tab, Backspace and Caps Lock buttons simultaneously. Screen should now read "Boot:Task // undefined". Power down computer and restart. Connection should be working. If any of these steps don't work, rapidly turn computer off and on several times, then start over. Good Luck and you're welcome!!
Just go back to paper and pen
Is yours a non-Apple computer?
I suspect OP is full of shit.
You remind me of those office ninny who act oh-s-helpless just so they can get someone else to do their work for them.
Googe it. Call an IT service. Just take some god damn initiative to figure it out, moron.
Never EVER ask a technical question without at least telling everyone what Operating System and version you're using, and some detailed steps of what you've tried, and what "failed" (i.e. describe the problem accurately and clearly).
In Windows 7, there's a little Network Icon in the lower right of the task bar. Click it, and one of the options is "Open Network and Sharing Center". Click that, and you'll see an option to "Connect to a network", as well as "Troubleshoot Problems".
One of those options should help you out.
Tank you people for fixting my puter. It works good now.
