I came here and asked all kinds of questions before we bought DH a laptop last christmas making sure I would be able to hook it up easily. I have a rounter, he has the wireless card. He can get online at the base where he is now but at home he can never get online on his computer. Because of that, I was afraid to buy my son a new laptop this year. The same thing is happening. I can't get it online. I have tried everything I can think of. I really wanted to get it set up so when he turns it on christmas morning he can get online. I can't even get it to work plugging it directly from the router with a wire into the computer. NOTHING works.
It says links g signal is strong and working but then another connection says cable unplugged. My mom also had her laptop here and never could get online except to use the cord and plug it in to the router directly.
I have NO idea what I am doing but so far I have...
Tuned of firewalls, used the network setup wizzard (and keep getting the uplugged error), turned everything off and back on including routers and cable modem. I really don't think anyone can help but I am hoping for my son's sake :o(. Everyone says it should just read your wireless router or whatever and it does but it still won't connect. I have windows xp on all computer.
