Hp laptop not connecting to buffalo wireless router
does your laptop have the same type of wifi card? alot of people make this mistake over and over. all routers transmit at different frequences, you must make sure your wifi card accepts the same as the router. for example, if your router is a 802.11g, your laptop has to be a "g" aswel, modern wifi cards can take 3 or more different ones. the older the laptop is then the older the wifi card is, may need upgrading.
has your laptop connected to it or other routers before? check your wifi settings and make sure the routers wifi setting is turned to ON, you can gain access to the routers main settings byconnecting the router to your laptop via an ethernet cable, going to start, control panel, network and internet, right click your router and click properties, write down the I.P address it gives you on screen, then open internet exlorer, and type the I.P address you wrote down, press enter. you should now have access to all the main settings. hope this helps
