Problem connecting to a wired network
For troubleshooting or dealing with a wired network, there are many things to consider. The netbook may have a damaged cable connection, a damaged router, a corrupted device driver or there could be a problem with the Internet Service Provider (ISP). What you can do is to check the cables first. Make sure that all cables are connected properly and that there are no loose connections. Also check whether the modem is functioning properly or not, which is indicated by the status lights of the modem. You may also try to reinstall the network drivers to ensure network connectivity.
Problem connecting to a Wi-Fi network
If the computer is not able to connect to a Wi-Fi network, the problem could be related to the wireless data card or the connection between the laptop and the wireless network. After checking these two things, ensure that the wireless Internet connection is enabled. Make sure that you can see the host or the name of the Wi-Fi network in the wireless icon in the computer system tray. If you are still having problems after following these steps, contact a technician.
Some users might have problems with the Bluetooth of the laptop. However, the users should identify if the computer is Bluetooth-enabled and the required drivers are installed in the system. Some laptops come with Bluetooth cards, but the device driver needs to be downloaded from the manufacturer’s website or updated through the Internet.
