    I have a problem when using wireless internet connection in my laptop ACER with OS Windows XP. I called the tech support but wasn't able to solve my problem. The wireless modem is just beside my laptop but when I tried to connect thru wireless, it can't..it has no connectivity or limited. but using cable connected to the port, it's working very good. There is no problem with the modem because it's working properly. I dont what's the problem of my laptop.
    Hope anybody here could help me this. Thank you in advance guys..God Bless

    You should really have started your own thread for this problem but as it's (hopefully) a simple one, I'm sure the OP won't mind if I respond. Your wireless problem is one of security and the key to get into the system has to be in-put. Some routers have this prionted on the base or on a card which came from your ISP but they all store the information in their settings so you need to go in and find it.

    You interface with the settings in Internet Explorer while wired to the router by typing the address of the router in as though it was a webpage. To find the address, go Start>Run and in the Open box, type cmd /k ipconfig /all I(including all the spaces) and from the black form that follows, take a note of the numeric code beside Default gateway. Type exit to close that form then open IE and input that code into the address bar. Different routers have differing login and password but most will admit you using admin as the login and either admin or password as the password. Post back if you have a D-Link or can't get in.

    Find the wireless settings area and then security and take a note of the type of security - WEP, WPA/PSK or whatever and the Security Key. You can leave IE now and click up the Wireless networking icon and go to View Wireless Networks. Select yours and click to Connect. You'll be prompted to key in that Security Key in each of two input boxes. Do that and the system will save the connection for the future so you shou
    ldn't need to do all this again.
