Your wireless router may not be enabled or you may have mac address filtering on. (which blocks unexpected wireless connections)

you need to log on to your wireless router and check the configuration of your wireless security settings

How do i set up internet on a dell computer we just got? have a modem and time warner internet...HELP!


Plug in the cable from the wall into the modem.You need an ETHERNET wire to connect from the modem to the back of the computer.It is yellow,universal,and you should have received one from Time Warner.It will fit in only 1 spot on the modem and only 1 spot on the computer.I also have a Dell.Good luck if you EVER have to call for technical support.One time I called,they asked me to say and spell my first namke.G-r-e-g-o-r-y.She replied,ok let me read that back to verify it.Now that's T as in Tom...They have an accent,it is eastern,but much farther than New England to Florida.Good luck!

Cable and wireless question


Not possible, since the "input" to the 2WIRE modem is a 4-wire telephone-line, not an 8-wire Ethernet cable.

Instead, spend about $40 to buy a D-Link Wireless G modem, and connect its WAN port to the cable-modem, and connect up to 4 Ethernet cables to "wired" computers, and configure the "wireless" component of the D-Link router.

Desktop wont connect to internet but laptop will


Is your cable modem also a wireless router?

From my search on it, it is not a wireless router.

This means you need to attach a hub or a wireless router to your cable modem so that more than one computer can connect to the internet simultaneously.

Go out and buy a wireless router. Connect the wireless router to your cable modem.

Connect your desktop to the wireless router with an ethernet cable.

Then you should have internet on your desktop.

Let me know if this helps. Give me a good rating and vote for me please.

Dell Dimension 4700C Desktop PC, internet issue.


Try and test the computer and modem connection by hooking it up directly by an ethernet cable..

If the internet connection stays solid when cabled up..

Then try either changing or removing the wep or wpa encryption on your wireless network, and seeing if that allows the computer to stay connected.

Also try disabling the firewall on your computer, and also on your modem.

If you already replace the modem and the router so it only means that the problem is with your Time warner internet connection line , did you already contact time warner and let them check your internet line to make sure the signal from them is strong and working fine if not contact them...

I got a cyberpower pc need help


Are you using windows XP or Vista. You should not have a problem if after you do a full system recovery, you add any service pack updates. Download these first and burn to a disk. Also make sure that all the drivers get reinstalled ok. After doing the recovery go into system device manager to see if your network card is installed even if it is a internal one on your motherboard.

If your connection is wireless you may need to setup a wired connection first from the router.

Time warner roadrunner usually works right away with little problems.
