adaptor usb wireless

I have recently reloaded all programs after non destructive recovery. I am now setting up wireless internet connection. I keep recieving message that the connection has limited or no connectivity. I also keep recieving messages on my screen Automatic updates has encountered a problem and needs to close. Any help please.

That message normally means that your USB adapter cannot find the router or cannot connect. Have you set security on the link, and did you put in the correct passphrase? Check your wireless settings carefully.

If you can't connect to the router, anything trying to use the internet will fail.

Hi Janet

Which operating system you got e.g. Xp,Vista etc?

Are you using inbuilt wireless adapter to connect to the wireless network or external i.e. USB.


Please we need more details to help you further.

RE: adaptor usb wireless

I am using an external adapter. The computer I am trying to connect used to be connected to internet with an ethernet connection but since this computer crashed a while ago I have used laptop connected to router that provides signal for tv and the laptop, do I now have to setup connection for wireless networking on the old computer

Well. I for one am confused by the question
However I think the gist of it is that the computer you are trying to use needs the correct network settings intalling on it - ie the correct WEP/WPA settings
