There could be a variety of causes and as such each has to be eliminated. As steps may include resetting the router, be sure to have all relevant passwords to such at hand in writing.

Two basic steps are to "forget the network" and to reset the router.

Trying to connect to WiFi and use my fire stick. Tv screen says network disconnected, but lists my network but can not connect. Please help


Check the settings in the fire stick. Make sure it is set to DHCP. Or you may have to enter the wifi IP Address manually. If your wifi uses 192.168.1.1 as a starting IP address then enter 192.168.1.49 change the last 2 digits if already in use. Subnet. 255.255.255.0, Gateway 192.168.1.1.
if it uses 192.168.0.1 then change the 3rd set of numbers to 0. I.e. 192.168.0.49 gateway 192.168.0.1 same subnet.

How do I connect through wi fi


Hi
Most tablets and phones working with Android will detect any WiFi access points within range.
Go to settings, Wireless & Networks, WiFi settings and the machine will show the networks within range at the top of the list.Tap on the network you wish to join and the machine will try to join the network, and if it is one you have joined before it will automatically connect. On the other hand if it is a new network to the phone/tablet, then unless it is totally open (and therefore insecure) you will need to put in the password to join the network.
Hope this is helpful, if so would you please register that with Fixya
Cheers

My friend gave me a windows embedded ce 6.0 netbook, how do I log in onto my wifi?


Select Connections from the tabs across the bottom. Select WiFi. Find your own wifi from the list of available networks (SSIDs) and select and hold it. Then select Connect. In the next screen, make sure The Internet is selected and click Next. On the Configure Network Authentication screen, make sure Authentication is set to Open and Data Encryption is Disabled and click Next. On the next screen, click Finish. This will bring you back to the Configure Wireless Networks screen. Wait a few moments while your phone connects. Once complete, the status will display as Connected. Click ok from the top right section of the screen then close the Settings window with the x in the top-right section of the screen. Once you've joined a WiFi network manually, your smartphone automatically joins it whenever the network is in range. If more than one previously used network is in range, your pc joins the one last used.

Wifi connectivity problem in iPad 2


You can try forgetting your network and then joining it again by going to settings, WiFi, the network you are on, then "forget this network", then find it again and join it. If that doesn't work, then you could reset all your network settings by going to your settings, general, reset, then press "Reset Network Settings".

I have tried to set my playstation 3 online keeps asking for wep key what is this and were do i find it


Your PS3 is most likely trying to join a WiFi (Wireless) network. Sometimes WiFi networks have passwords to keep people out. The PS3 is asking for a WEP key because it is asking for the password so it can join that WiFi network and get online. Try to find your WEP key for your router. If it is not your router then you will be unable to join that network since it is secured.

Can i use my netgear adapter to pick up xbox live on a new xbox 360 from stealing my neighbors wifi signal


not really, as it can't share that signal with your xbox. It can only join their network. If you had a router, and you set it up to "extend" their network, then you could have your xbox connect to the router which would be on their network.
Of course this is illegal and I advise you don't do it.

I cannot connect my ipod touch to my router how do i connect it?


First you'll need to turn on your Wi-Fi.

1. Choose (Settings) then (WiFi) then (turn WiFi on)
2. Set iPod touch to ask if you want to join a new network: Choose (WiFi) and turn (Ask to Join Networks) ON or OFF.

Then you'll need to join a WiFi network (your D-Link for instance)

1. Choose (Settings) then (WiFi) then wait until your D-Link shows up in the list of networks.
2. Select your network and if you have a password for your router make sure you type it. (networks that require a password have a lock icon next to it) then tap (join)

Once you join a WiFi network manually, iPod touch will automatically connect to it whenever the network is in range. If more than one previously used network is in range, iPod touch joins the one last used.

When iPod touch is connected to a WiFi network, the WiFi icon in the status bar at the top of the screen shows the connection strength. The more bars you see, the stronger the connection.

Good Luck
