Default Wireless won't work, help!!!

Hi, so I'm in France right now and will be here for 3 months. I'm staying with a family who has an Alicebox router and everyone is able to access the WiFi either on a laptop, iPod, etc., except me. This is extremely frustrating because I can't use my computer unless directly connected to the Ethernet which is in somebody's room, and therefore not really feasible for 3 months. I have no idea why it won't work because it connects but only with "limited or no connectivity" which means I'm never able to use the internet.
My laptop is an Acer Aspire One 10.1" Netbook, and it runs on Windows XP.

Here is a couple of things you could try. I can't guarantee that any of them will work, but its worth a shot.

1. Delete the network's pre-configured profile on your laptop. If the settings were created or modified incorrectly it can prevent the computer from connecting.

2. To make sure its not signal related, connect via wireless while you are next to the router. Sometimes when the signal is too low, it will keep you from receiving internet access.

Have you checked the settings on all the oter wireless devices to see if they are doing something different, such as using a static IP address or DNS details. Also check whether it is open or shared connection. Has MAC filtering been enabled, inadvertantly.

Your answer is right! I think but If he change his wireless network card in PC then it may be possible that the error will remove! what do you think about it!

If the settings have been defined by the router, i.e. mac filtering, static IP address, etc, changing the card wont make a difference I am afraid. The best way is tho either log in to the router or get the person who owns/ setup he router to confirm mthe details contained within there. That way they will know for sure what the settings nee to be as you dont want IP conflicts on the network!

# Are all the needed cables connected? You must be sure to connect the mouse cable to your computer's serial port or mouse bus port. There is either a separate cable that comes from your panel or projector, or there is some type of receiving device with a cable. A lot of people wrongly assume that hooking up the cable for the screen image is enough to connect the mouse. It isn't. The mouse connection is an additional hook-up.

# Connect the mouse before turning on your computer. Regardless of whether you are a Mac user, or are using a serial or PS/2 style mouse on your PC, it is best to connect thA wireless mouse provides greater freedom during any presentation.e mouse cables before you power on your computer. Yes, there are situations where you can safely connect a mouse after the computer is already on and it will be detected. However, there are more situations where it can cause damage and/or the computer will not detect the mouse so it won't operate. Why take the chance? If you must know more details, a PS/2 bus mouse will never work unless it is connected before the computer is turned on. Some mouse drivers will detect a serial mouse automatically while the computer is on, others require that you manually tell the driver to search for a new serial mouse. If you connect or disconnect any mouse on a poorly designed mouse or serial port, damage can occur to the computer. Most, but not all, computers have some protection against this, but why put it to the test?
