Ok if you look at the front of your computer there is a little slot right below the cd-rom drive that is actually a button you can push to enable you to slide off the cover of the cpu

Can I set this up this wireless router if I have cable internet and not DSL?


You CAN do this if you have access to the firmware of the ADSL gateway.

Connect cat5 cable from ethernet port on cable modem to ethernet port 1 on ADSL Gateway. (Must be port 1)
-Connect cat5 cable from computer NIC to other port on ADSL Gateway.
-(You may need to) Start->Run->cmd
ipconfig -release all
ipconfig -renew
Here's the trick...
-Open web browser, go to ADSL Gateway homepage (likely 192.168.0.1)
-Configuration tab, Advanced WAN->WAN
-Change WAN PORT drop down from DSL ATM PORT to ETHERNET PORT 1
-Click Edit button. Change Protocol from PPPoE to ROUTED.
-Radio button for DHCP Client to Enable.
-Click Set button.
-(You may need to) Power cycle both Cable Modem and ADSL Gateway device

Now this was done on a Westell ADSL gateway from verizon, yours may differ and you may need to look up the instructions for your specific gateway.

How can i hook a laptop computer to a desktop computer both running windows xp with a Ethernet or usb cable?


Hello there,
You dont do that with a usb cable it is done with a LAN/Ethernet cable. Connect the ends to the ethernet port on both pc's. If you dont know d ethernet port, look at the ends of the ethernet cable, then check all the ports on the pc's for which is the receiver, ie the port where it would fit into perfectly. Then, you would go to Networks on any of the PC's. You would see the other pc as a network, where the network name is the pc name. To access any, click on the network. Eg, to access the pc from the desktop, click on the pc (the user name) from the desktop, viceversa. When you click, you would see the different users on the pc, if they are more than 1. Select the user that you want to get data from, if it asks for password, enter the username's password. Then you can continue with your file transfer.
Please endeavor to give me feed back i you encounter further difficulties.
Hope this was helpful?
Have a lovely day.

Bigpond have sent me my 4 port Wi-Fi modem thompson TG782T Home Network Gateway, now I am sitting here trying to figure out just where everything goes!!! I received a cd rom however I can't get it to work,...


Telephone wall-plate <---- 4-strand telephone-cord ---> telephone-port in modem

AC power from wall-plate to modem.

LAN port #1 <--- Ethernet cable --> network-port on desktop/laptop computer #1.
LAN port #2 <--- Ethernet cable --> network-port on desktop/laptop computer #2.
LAN port #3 <--- Ethernet cable --> network-port on desktop/laptop computer #3.
LAN port #4 <--- Ethernet cable --> network-port on desktop/laptop computer #4.

Configure the router's wireless adapter:
* set a SSID
* set an encryption-level, e.g., 'WPA'
* set a network password

Use the SSID/password to configure your wireless devices (iPod Touch, iPad, XBOX 360, etc.)

I have a belkin router i am having trouble connecting it. i dont know where to connect the ethernet cable. Does it go the computer or the modem?


the ethernet cable should be connected to the ethernet port of the router to the ethernet/network port of the computer. you will also need to connect a cable through the router and the modem, then a phone cable from the modem to the phone line.

If it necessary to conect the ethernet cable to the usb port on back of the One ZX 4000 series


Ethernet cables don't go into the usb hub, they go into the Ethernet port on the back. So...no, an Ethernet jack won't work in a usb hub.

Linksyswireless-N WRT120N The ethernet ports dont work when connected to my desktop but works on other pc's or my laptop.


If you can use the same cable and ethernet port to connect to the router with a laptop, or other computers, then you have isolated the problem to your non-connecting computer. Plug in the computer with the connection issue with the same ethernet cable. Next, open up command prompt and type in the command "ping 127.0.0.1". This command checks your NIC card to see if it is working properly (if you get "Reply from 127.0.0.1", then your NIC card is good, but if not, then you need to replace your NIC card.). If your NIC card is good, ping your default gateway (i.e. using a linksys with a default IP, type "ping 192.168.1.1" in command prompt) Your router's private IP Address, which can be found by successfully connecting another pc and, on the connected pc, typing "ipconfig" in command prompt, is also known as the default gateway. If you get 4 "Request timed out.", or "Reply from 169.X.X.X" ("X" being any number), then your network connection settings on your pc are incorrect. To fix these settings, assuming that you have DHCP enabled on both your router and the computer being troubleshooted, use the commands "ipconfig /release" and then "ipconfig /renew" in command prompt. Give the computer a minute or two to allow the computer time to acquire a new IP Address, and the correct configuration from your router. Now your computer should be connecting properly.

Networking with Motorola SBG 900 Gateway


No, you don't need a router... that gateway supports up to 253 devices on your private network segment. That being said, you only have one ethernet port, so if your desktops have LAN cards rather than wireless, you'll need a hub to split off enough ports. If you add a router, it'll give you a whole new level of complexity. A gateway is a router/modem combo. It converts the Cable Internet signal from your ISP to ethernet and isolates all of the computers behind it into your own private network. A hub is basically an ethernet splitter... it won't isolate a new network segment, it'll just add more ports. Get a hub, they are cheaper and won't add a new level of complexity.
