Your desktop may already enjoy a wired broadband Internet connection, but a Wi-Fi connection will afford you greater latitude in Internet use.

Wires will not be necessary, so you can establish your PC in any room or area of your home or office and still stay connected to the Internet.

Fortunately, you only need a wireless router, broadband modem, and ethernet cable to make this Wi-Fi connection.

Disconnect your modem from the wall socket it's plugged into.

Connect the ethernet cable to the back of the modem.
There is a clearly marked ethernet port here.

This port will appear to be an oversized telephone jack.
Connect the other end of the ethernet cable to the ethernet port on the back of the wireless router.

This port will look exactly the same as the one on the rear of the modem.
Plug the broadband modem back up to the wall socket and wait for it to power on, initialize and detect its new connection to the wireless router.

Locate the manual that shipped with your wireless router.
Find the URL, or web address, that is contained within the pages of this manual.

This special web address is used to set up your router's network and security permissions.
Also, be sure to locate the default password provided within the pages of the manual.

Enter the URL into your web browser and allow the page to load.
When prompted, enter the password that you found within the instruction manual.

Begin setting up your new wireless network.
You will be asked for an "SSID," which is just a moniker for your new network.

This will be the name seen when the network is listed in an available network list.
Choose whatever name you like.

Select a password for your new network.
While encrypting your network is optional, it is highly recommended.

Along with the password, choose "WPA" security encryption.
"WEP" will also be an option but it is an older security protocol that is technologically inferior to WPA.

Click "Apply" to save your changes.

Click on the wireless icon on the right-hand side of the bottom toolbar on your PC's desktop. Select your network's SSID from the drop-down list.

Enter the password you chose for your network.
You will now be connected to WiFi Internet on your PC desktop and free to browse the Web.

it might take some time being a freeware driver solution
Note: it will find all of your outdated drivers

This will automatically search for and find the correct driver you will have to update every driver individually once you update you might be asked whether you want to restart or make a system restore point.

Click no to both of these then continue updating each driver free then restart once all of the drivers have been updated.

I've got an Everex 3400+ and when I plug my cable in from my cable modem into the internal modem it's not showing that it's connected. Is there a driver I need to download. can you recommend a network...


Please dont connect a cable modem to an internal modem.

These are not the same types of device.

you need to connect from the cable modem to the ETHERNET port.

They look similar but ethernet is slightly larger.

Dont use a telephone cord for the ethernet connection it is the wrong one.

Compaq presario sr2020nx ethernet adapter issue


Since youre setting up a DSL connection choose Set up broadband connection > PPPoE. You will need the username and password you were given to this account (contact customer service at your ISP for this info). Enter the info and have it remember the password. Click connect. Once Vista finds the connection, it will ask you to choose a network type (Home, Work, or Public). Select the type and enjoy. If the connection fails, recheck your username and password entries.
