Having problems with your PC Desktops ?

I have a refurbished Gateway T-1625 notebook that up until now has worked fine. However, a few days ago the wireless capability just stopped working. Now, when I try to connect via wireless, it says there is nothgin within range, and when I ask it to explain, it says that my wireless switch is turned off. I've checked numerous times; it isn't.


Answers :

If your laptop is not "on range" this problably respond to:

1) Interference problem or bad signal.
2) Bad hardware devices (cards, routers etc)

Check your wireless router (turn it off in a while and see what happen)
Check your wireless card adaptor in your computer (My PC >> right click Properties >> Hardware >> Device Manager >> Network)

Let me know how it is going!

Please don't forget to rate my help!
Thank you for using FIXYA!
Have a great day!
