    Hi there everyone, I got a question regarding wifi with Windows 7.

    I just bought a laptop, with Windows 7 Home Premium, and the problem is I don't know how i can connect to Internet using my Linksys WRT54G2 Wireless-G Broadband Router.

    Can anyone help?

    Yes, it is, and it has a yellow flag with exclamation mark.

    i'm not sure whether i downloaded it, coz it was setup by my friend previously. how to check if i've downloaded?

    A built-in wireless? I guess so...

    yeah, i can choose which one, but as i click 'connect' on the desired networks, then it starts to scan, but in the end, it just wont get connected. It says "This computer has limited connectivity to "network name"."

    yellow exclamation mark means it has a conflict with another device :mad:

    The yellow Exclamation mark suggests that either there is some kind of conflict of the network or there is very less connectivity.

    To fix this issue make sure that you have entered the right password to connect to the router and see if you can remove any obstacles between the router and the laptop say a wall or any Electronic devices.

    If possible remove the antennas and clean and fix it back before you try to connect.:p

    I would suggest, pcs, that you have a lok at the last date in threads. Somtimes the problem has been solved and no further input is required.

    I would suggest a new thread so ALL members have access to it.
