Generally, to set up an initial wireless set up, you have to be connected to the web via a wired connection. this is only to set your setting preferences etc, etc. after that yopu should be able to go wireless

Cannot connect to the internet


What I would do is Unplug the Cable Modem and the Router. Then plug in the modem first and then the router after the modem lights are all synced. Then try and reconnect after all lights are functioning normally

Bt home hub setup download


Possible reason would be that BT normally 'lock' their hubs and modems etc so that you can only use them with the BT service. Need to contact BT and 'ask nicely' if they can unlock the hub for you (not 100% confident if they will) failing that you will need to either purchase equipment or use equipment your new supplier issued

Usb wireless adapter for Compaq Presario 5000


Most netgear adapters will work.
They're around £20 and will connect to pretty much everything =)
They work on windows, from 98 i think. So aslong as the old tower has a sort-of up to date OS then it'll connect for you :)

Hope it helps.

I have just signed up to bt braodband and got a bt home hub. As a result I have a spare BT voyager 54g wireless network modem. Can I use this to print wirelessly to my lexmark printer


You can't use wireless adapter to hook printer to wireless network. You need a wireless print server. Example is Linksys or DLink Wireless-G PrintServer.

Can't get internet connection to my lap top.ps i have a desk top.


Is your laptop wireless adapter correctly configured? It may be set to only recieve certain types of signals (802.11b, when you may beed 802.11g etc), so check if the configuration of the laptop matches the configuration of the router.

To test if the laptop can get internet at all, try to get to a wired internet line (your wireless router may have some Ethernet ports on the back; laptops usually have Ethernet connectivity), just incase your laptop is set to block all internet signals coming in.

Hope this helps!

The wireless interent will not connect at all and it keeps saying acer enet management internet disconnected....my girlfriends computer connects and we are in the same room....


Acers have a switch to turn to turn the wireless on and off. I'm using an Aspire 5100 and the switch is in the front edge next to the sound jacks. Different makes and models have them in different locations, some have it as a button on the keyboard. Check to make sure yours has not been turned off by accident.

When connecting to my home wifi with my lap top i loose conection every 4 or 5 minutes


What type of modem or hub are you using? Could be firewall shutting down connection, or some else using your connection if the wireless network isn't secured with a WPA or WEP key(password). Let me know to solve your problem.
