Re: my pc does not recognise my ethernet or moem or my...
First of all what computer do you have???
That is bases for all the questions. You need to download all of the drivers (audio, video, Network card driver, chipset, and others). From the computer vendor (manufacturer).
For you get all that, you need a working computer, access the Internet and download all the drives and put it on a CD, installed on the computer you are working on. (Hopefully the CD reader is working).
Just reinstalling the operating system is only get you a clean hard drive new operating system and application not the motherboard setup and drivers you need to have the computer function as a computer.
In order for your modem communicate with the ISP , the network card must be configured to accept automatic IPS configuration. To do that, after you have the network card working (offline). Turn on the modem and connected the modem to the computer. The computer will automatically get the IP address from the IPS. you should be on line. Till then, good luck, and good fishing.

The internet provider point might be too far.. or it might be problem with device drivers. Use a driver scanner to install a specific updated drivers for the device. Also use intel software partner system utility tool Reginout to fix internet bu using its internet optimizer feature.
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 ..
are you trying to use two routers ?
about your pc it is almost sure that you have a ethernet port, don't know your system but look around and you may find it. also can use a usb ethernet adaptor, take the router to a friend house set it up with a diferent pc you will not be able to connect to internet there but if you set up everything, specially username and password ( PPPOE) when you come back home it will work. thats is you are replacing your older router.
can pm to me if have any further question

I hope the following information is helpful.
If you are trying to install the driver for the Broadcom ethernet NIC that was pre-installed (NOT an ethernet card that you purchased and installed yourself), there is a softpack (updated driver installation) download available from HP/Compaq. It will install the driver automatically for you, just download it from the link below and run the ".exe" file.
IMPORTANT: Check to be sure that your current Operating System, and model of the network device you are trying to install, are BOTH listed below BEFORE you download!

1. if you have wireless, purchase or borrow an add on usb wireless stick. this will allow you to access the internet and add in your missing drivers.
2. or add in a pci card that has ethernet connection to get your drivers.
3. use someone elses computer and download the drivers from the IBM site, put them on a usb stick and then apply them to your unit, (ie more the ethernet driver as a primary and then you can download the remaining ones as you go after it is working. hope this helps.
there is no "earthnet" connection. it is an ethernet connection. it looks like a phone cable but has larger ends than a phone connector. the router is connected to the computer via an ethernet cable if it needs to be hardwired to a ethernet port or internal ethernet card. a wireless connection only needs to be an add-on internal card w/antenna or a usb connector hub (it looks like a usb flash memory stick)
here is how it's done. netgear has the same type setup.
Hi ABVT66 - Didn't your router come with two short cables? It should have. One is the cable that hooks up the modem to your router and the other is the cat5 (ethernet) cable that connects your router to your pc. Let me know if you have these cables. Also, if you check your device manager on your pc, click on the + next to network adapters and it will tell you your network adapter. DON'T RATE THIS 'TIL WE'RE DONE. Thanks.
