Hi,

When was the last time using your internet connection wirelessly? If this is the first time you will use your wireless internet. You may need to check it with your internet service provider or you may check it with your wireless modem (router) manufacturer.

Using wireless internet connection, you will need to configure the settings in the wireless modem (router). you will need to get an admin password and username.

If you were able to connect to the internet wirelessly, check if you wireless icon (WIFI) on your laptop is on.

Keep me posted.

Thanks.

Secondarily, you would have to consult your owners manual on what type of expansion port(s) you have internally, then purchase an ethernet card, similar to the one in the link below, and install it:

Emachine doesn't recognize the ethernet cord when plugged in


Sounds like the integrated ethernet port has gone bad. You can install a new ethernet card in one of the PCI expantion slots. Then plug the ethernet into the new card, this should take care of the problem. You can not repair a bad integrated ethernet port.

How Do I connect to internet with my desktop without Ethernet cable


To connect wireless to a network ..you need a wireless router or access to a near by one ..and you need to install a wireless card on computer if it has non ..This can be a pci card and you will install it on a pci slot inside and install its driver and after that connect to the network available ..or use a wireless card on usb ..
If you do not have a network free near by ..you can connect using the wireless card to another computer connected to the internet ..or install a wireless router on your Ethernet cable ..and a card in computer or a usb one ..
In my opinion the wireless card and router is the best way cause connecting trough another computer can be tricky and slow..
another way ..if you do not have any other means is to use a wireless modem on usb from a mobile network ISP (internet service provider )
This can be the same provider as your mobile phone one ..

Cant get on the internet


The longer the cable, the slower the connection.

It should work with the cable as it is not "too" long.

I would try turning the modem and router off for one minute and then turning back on.

Here are some things to check.
  1. In the system setup, ensure that the network adapter is enabled.
  2. Check device manager and see if the driver is properly installed.
  3. If the integrated NIC doesn't work, you can disable it in the BIOS and install a PCI NIC (Less than $20) and the system will work that way.

I set my router up as a network and all I want it to do is run a laptop. How do I get it to do just that?


Did you have it working with another computer before? It would normally use an ethernet cable between the router and laptop.
Your laptop needs an ethernet connector (or maybe a USB port if your router supports a USB connector). Sometimes the ethernet port is built into the laptop. It looks like a phone jack (you may have a couple of modem jacks on your laptop, which is not what you want). It's bigger and has 6 wires instead of 4. Another way to connect an ethernet cable to your laptop is a PCMCIA card. They plug into a thin, wide port on the side of your laptop. It also would have the 6-wire jack built into it. Router setup is another issue if you need help with that.

Thanks but I need help just getting online


It could be a difference configuration of the ethernet adapters on each machine.

Try this from each machine when connected to the cable.
(assumes Windows XP)

Click Start then All Programs then Accessories then Command Prompt A new window will open -- in that window type the following

ipconfig /all

If this works copy the following for each adapter (there may be more than one per machine)

Adapter
IP Address
Subnet Mask
Default Gateway
DNS Address(es) may be more than one

Put the answers in a comment to this problem and I will attempt to provide additional steps to resolve the issue.

one possibility --
If you loaded your DNS addresses into the laptop's adapter configuration and not into the desktop's laptop configuration that could be the issue.

There could be other issues the ipconfig answers should narrow down the problem so a specific solution can be given.
