WiFi connestion

Discussion in 'Wireless Networking' started by =?Utf-8?B?cGVlYnM=?=, Aug 30, 2006.

  1. I live in France and have my internet account with Orange(Wanadoo). I have
    just moved onto broadband at 1mb.
    I had a lot of problems trying to connect my desktop to the LiveBox modem
    but eventually managed it using ethernet conection. Desktop now works OK.
    My Acer portable is fitted with WiFi and initially it connected with the
    LiveBox OK. Yesterday I lost my incoming line for about an hour and when it
    came back the desktop came up OK but the portable would not connect. The WiFi
    icon in the tray is crossed and I get a message that the WiFi is not
    available. Going into the WiFi connection setup it says that the WiFi is not
    connected. The portable is awate of the LiveBox because it shows as a
    resource within range. I askes for a WEP key but when it gets the key it
    tries to connect but eventually say the WiFi not available.
    This happened quite suddenly and I suspect that the WiFi part of my portable
    has failed BUT, is there anything that I should be doing to turn the WiFi
    connection ON?
    I know very little about WiFi and my WinXP is in French so any help will be
    greatly appreciated.
    Many thanks
