Windows 7: Can't connect to internet


02 May 2010   #11

Windows 7
 
 

If you are trying to connect to your wireless network and it is asking you for a username and password, the issue isn't drivers. The issue is you need to put in the information required to connect to your wireless combo box. That is of course if it's setup to require that information.

When you connect with your iPod Touch, how did you set that up? When you connected to your wireless network, did it ask for information such as a username or password or pass phrase? Or does it just automatically connect without any security?

If your iPod connects without any security settings, then your desktop is configured incorrectly. You also would want to secure your wireless connection. All of these things Bell can help you with for free as it's their equipment. We can certainly walk you through most of the configuration process for your computer, but Bell will help you set it all up specifically to function with their equipment. If it was a third-party router they wouldn't help you out too much, but since it's theirs I would utilize their support for the device. Not only will they help you set it all up to function, they'll also walk you through securing your wireless network.

You would be better served by creating your own thread. Chances are your issue isn't related to this one. Create a new thread and provide as much information as possible for the best possible help

Windows 7 32 bit
 
 

Fixed!

The actual problem- faulty antenna. LOL!

Thanks a lot for the help guys, for a first time user to get such immediate help is really stunning. This seems like a great community. I'll definitely be back if I need some more help

What I ended up doing was taking the antenna off an old Linksys wireless card and screwed it onto the Realtek adapter. I also downloaded the REALTEK RTL8187b Wireless LAN Utility. This program is exactly what I was looking for.

The user name/pw thing was unrelated, just another thing that was new to me with Windows 7. As for the network, it only had a password on it.

Thank you so much for all help guys,

Phil

Thanks for reporting back in Slips, broken antenna, who would have guessed. I'm glad you figured out the problem.
