Easy! You need a wireless router. My recommendation is Linksys wireless-G (or wireless-N if the laptop supports it). Linksys routers are easy to configure and very durable. It'll run you $50-60 at any computer store (Walmart even has them)

Best of luck, and make sure you rate users who offer their time & expertise to you for free :)

I cannot share my home laptop with my work laptop on my home wireless connection. Virgin advise that there is something wrong with the wireless adapter on my home Toshiba laptop.


If you are able to access the Internet on this computer - then there is likely no problem with the adapter. More likely is that the networking is not configured properly.

It all depends what you want for internet, wired, or wireless. I would say in your case, you would be better off with wireless internet. Also, i would recommend that you explore your options before purchasing a laptop, acer laptops are not very good in my opinion, they don't last long, and they are usually outdated by at least 6 months. You may want to check out tigerdirect.com, newegg.com, or frys.com, those are all great sites for purchasing computers, and computer accessories. But on to the original question, i'm going to assume you want wireless internet. You will have to make sure the laptop you purchase has wifi/wireless built in. The website you are purchasing the laptop from, or the representative in the store you're purchasing it from should be able to tell you whether or not it has wifi. Next you will need a wireless router, you want a router with wireless g functionality, they cost from $30 - $75 and will serve your purposes perfectly. The router should come with setup instructions, usually they're pretty user friendly. That is all you need for a wireless home network, unless you have desktop computers that you would like to have wireless, then you would have to get a wireless card for each one.

Want to hook laptop up to home computer via cable modem


You need a router or a wireless router to do that.
If your cable modem is wireless you can set directly via wireless network a connection with your laptop (the laptop also need a wireless card (if dont have any built in))
The connection must be done in this way

ISP ----->> Cable Modem ---->> Wireless Router o Router ----->> Computer ( 1, 2, or more)

Acer Aspire 5000 wireless device / driver has disappeared


TJBeta, this laptop typically comes with Windows XP Home edition. LynnieSam, right-click on your MY COMPUTER icon and then select PROPERTIES. When the window pops up, select HARDWARE and then DEVICE MANAGER. Scroll down if you have to and look under NETWORK ADAPTERS. If you do not see it there, try to have the drivers reinstalled. If you do see it there, and there is a yellow exclamation point by it, then Windows knows its there, but there is a problem of some sort. Usually if you uninstall the item (right click on it and then select uninstall) and then reinstall it by clicking on ACTION in the menu bar and selecting SCAN FOR HARDWARE CHANGES, it will reload the necessary drivers. This has worked for me many times. You may also need to get the drivers from the ACER website. Of course, you will need to hook up the laptop via the Ethernet port with a cable to your router or get them from a family members or friends computer. Please let me know if you need any clarification or any other help.
