Dear Dallasdesign,

Your answer to this is "im sure its possible, and im almost certain that it is".

The reason being is that the Iphone was intentionally designed to be used for internet applications, as well as music playback. Now in order to get the music onto the device, you will need a USB or similar compatible hardware device (computer or laptop), and a transport method/ protocol (very certainly to be USB interface).

Now with this all in mind, all you need now is an internet protocol transport method, which is embedded on your phone from when it was built, andd of course a computer with an operating system that will work effectively and is not likely to fall foul short of functioning properly with your beloved Iphone (in this case, dont bother using microsoft windows if you can help it, and Vista is a certain no-go for anyone with any knowledge of driver issues relating to non-MS products).

Now as far as I know, i sayIT SHOULD be possible to hitch up to the internet using your IPhone, but in your circumstances, you should verify this with your service provider (phone) in case they get the ache with you trying this. Also search engines such as http://www.google.co.uk/ are your friend, so do use them to seek out the Iphone forums and see what others have done about it.

Now you should find that your phone arrived with a disk/ CD/ DVD and this will contain the driver software and readme files for linking your phone to a computer. If you dont have the disk, dont worry, you can get the drivers from searching at the google search engine, then download them and shove them onto either a pen drive or a disc, and away you go in complete success.

I hope this works for you,

Best of luck

Kindest regards,

Yours sincerely

Oz

To test your Internet connection use a LAN cable, connect to your laptop to your router and if you can get an Internet connection then most likely your USB wireless adapter is not configured correctly for connecting to your wireless router.
To connect your computer to a wireless router, you click the Refresh network list, then Choose your wireless network and then click Connect to your secured Wireless Network, it will asks for a Network Key before allowing you to connect into your wireless network. This Network Key is either the WEP, or WPA or WPA2 Encryption key that is used to configure the Wireless Router. The Passphrase is an alternate way to setup the Encryption key.
When you are requested for a Network Key, you can just enter the Passphrase that was used to configure the Encryption key in the wireless router. http://www.fixya.com/support/r5270415-network_password_network_address For information on securing your wireless network, configuring the wireless router and configuring the wireless card in the laptop/computer, please click on this link and follow my instructions :- http://www.fixya.com/support/r3559128-wireless_router_security

HOW DO I CONNECT TO INTERNET WITH SYVANIA NETBOOK


First, you will need a place to connect to the internet. An ethernet cable (landline connection, wired connection) or a wireless connection (via wifi). You will only be able to connect via wifi if your laptop has a wireless network card as not all laptops do (though most new ones do have a wifi card).

For a wired connection, if you have a plcae then all you should need is to connect an ethernet cable from your PC to the wall or place with the interent service (home, cafe, etc).

For a wireless connection, you will need to open and view all wireless networks. Connect to the one you want to use. You may need a security code (WEP Key) or another passcode of a sort. Enter the passcode and you should be on your way. Let us know how it goes!

Hello Punitrava, Hi, you can connect to the internet several ways, here are the common ones. 1. Via a free WIFI hotspot, find a WIFI area like in malls or coffee shops and enable you WIFI connection on your laptop. after enable the laptop detects the wireless connection and simply connect. 2. Via a USB modem, inquire about this on your wireless telephone company. 3. Via the Local Area Network like computer shops, insert any available LAN cable on your LAN connection, you need to consult the LAN administrator. 5.

chances are you're problem is not your router or you ISP (internet Service Provider).. that would be pretty unlikely and weird.

if your computer shuts down when you attempt to connect wirelessly it is possibly that you have driver problem with your wireless network adapter. I would suggest for your to update the driver's from the manufacturer's website by going here (make sure you know your hardware revision)

Iphone3g error trying to connect the internet, but every time I get an error. Why is my iphone3g unable to connect the internet?


it's hard to diagnose your situation with out knowing a few things.. who's your carrier, is this a wifi or edge issue.. if it's wifi does your phone connect to the wireless router at all? if it is seeing your router fine can any other device or computer properly access the internet using the same wireless protocol. if it's edge. what are your edge settings. but if it's edge, you'll get the best support by contacting your cellular carrier.

Connecting to internet


The network key is with the wireless router that you have. When you moved, your router reestablished itself with a new connection at a new location, and more than likely set a new key. Try reconfiguring your router with a new network key, then configure the laptop with the new key, and it should connect.
