Can you lease help me how to connect to the internet using my samsung B5310 as modem to my laptop


First check that your Phone should support to work as a Modem. If yes then Just connect the Phone with your Laptop (the cable provide with your Phone Provider). Normally you receive the software also with your Phone. As soon as you connect the Phone it will start installing Drivers, Make sure you should have CD/Media to install the drivers. Once the Driver installed successfully. Then you can start connecting with the Internet.. (It would be needed user name and password , Please contact your Internet/ Connection Provider).

Please clarify which OS you using and which connection you are using. SO that I can give you exact steps.


Please post your feedback and Vote if the problem resolved as per your satisfaction>

I have an acer aspire 6930 what are the steps to connect to wireless internet I have a wireless moden but have to keep the ethernet phone cord plugged in to browse the net please help


all you have to do is, take the wireless modem and check if there ports at the back for connecting the ethernet to the modem(mostly it will be there).you can refer the manual of the wireless modem to connect the modem to your acer(i.e the connections of cables)in a step by step process.i am telling this since you have not specified your modem's manfacturer and model no. you have to the install the software from the installation cd of the modem in your laptop.
the defaualt connection will be to connect the phone's ethernet cord to the main input of the modem(if you are using the phone for internet). and the power adapter in the nearby small slot.

How to connect to internet with my cell phone motorzr max v6


Using your cell phone as a modem is perhaps the most overlooked of all Internet connection options. But a mobile phone Internet connection, whether as a tethered modem or, using bluetooth, a wireless cell phone Internet connection, is easy to set up, and with a laptop and cellphone you can check email and surf the web from anywhere, any time, with the Internet in your pocket!
Here are the basic instructions for creating a mobile phone Internet connection. The instructions are for a cell phone with bluetooth (which most cell phones these days have), but if your cell phone doesn’t have bluetooth you can buy a cable to connect your laptop to your phone from any cell phone accessory provider. Conversely, if your cell phone has bluetooth but your laptop does not, you can buy a small USB device which will enable bluetooth on your computer.

My phone modle is Samsung E250.i want connect the internet using it.my laptop has a modem and i hope my phone use a modem.i connecting the internet it's show two modems.i want to know my phone Serial...


your phone serves as a modem already, just disable the built-in modem of your laptop. then if your phone comes with an installation CD like the nokia models, then you can set it up to be a modem for your laptop, but then you should know if your CP service provider are capable with this, like GPRS, HSDPA, and other wireless protocols. and last, you should have alot of loads for your CP, hehehehe

How to instal PCI modem


It’s not going to be an easy fix since PC TEL doesn’t support your card anymore; It is an HSP chipset which stands for Host Signal Processing.
