I have an Acer 5520, using Empowerment Technology, running on windows vista, it can connect to my sky broadband, but then the broad won't connect on to the internet.


the obvious is restart the laptop, but alternatively what you can do is try and find an updated driver. to find out what driver you currently have and who makes it right click my computer and go to manage, then click device manager.

the driver your looking for should be under networking it should have something like "WLAN" the other should have "LAN" once you've found out who makes it go to their website download the latest driver and install test again.

How do I connect my sky broadband to a second laptop which I have just purhased


are you trying to connect wireless or cabled?
Wireless should be easy, just turn on the wireless device (if its built in) normally by pressing a Fn key and an F key marked with an antenna picture. Then connect to you Sky router after the wireless scan (the number and network key are printed on your router base)
You should just be able to plug an RJ45 network lead into your laptop and it should use DCHP to work (Plug and play).

Unable to connect to internet when setting up new laptop


Hi...yes, he will need an ISP if he wants to access the internet from home. But he could also use a public wireless hotspot, or borrow your connection (if you're willing to let him!) - at least until he has set up his own. Mobile broadband is also an option.
Hope this helps

Ive got verizon wireless broadband for my lap top and cant seem to be able to get online with ps3


Can you provide more information?  The Verizon Wireless broadband access is for your laptop only.  In order for the PS3 to take advantage of it, you'll have to setup Internet Connection Sharing on your laptop. That way your PS3 can connect to your laptop via your laptop's wireless connection (in Ad Hoc mode since you don't have a wifi network) and access the internet via the VzW Broadband Access.

I have recently changed my server from pipex to sky now i can get on to sky broadband but am unable to get access to my e-mail neither sky or microsoft are able to help they suggest to try...


Since you change your server you may need also to change mail server for your Pipex and the only way to make this work is to contact your Email provider and ask them for the new settings for your email so you can use it with your new broadband...
