Paymonl,

Ok, not wanting to teach you to **** eggs, so here goes :)

Cable modems generaly have an ethernet connect, but usb is quite common as well.

On the back of the modem do you have a connection like this.

If so you will want to connect the LAN port to the laptop using a fly lead, there probably would of been one supplied with the modem.

In which case you should connect it to the laptop via a fly lead, they should of been one supplied with the modem.

If not they're reasonably cheap and can be got from computer shops and many supermarkets also sell them as well.

If it is USB the the port will look similar to this.

If its a USB modem you may well have to install the drivers first and then connect the modem once prompted.

Hope this helps, if not please dont hesitate to let me know,

Regards

Nick

How to Share your Internet Connection through laptop's WLAN(Wifi) card?


Every Windows Operating System after Windows 98 can share its Internet Connection using this Technique. Microsoft defines this technique as Internet Connection Sharing (ICS). But setting ICS is very obscure to most of the users. This comes very useful if you live with your roommates and you guys have single internet source like a USB modem Connected to one laptop only. Using Internet Connection Sharing(ICS) that laptop can Broadcast its Internet to other laptops in the room. Technically, the range of a laptop's WLAN adapter is around 20-25 meters. So it can easily handle near by rooms also. This can also be done with a PC having a WLAN card.
To setup and broadcast your internet it is mandatory that you are accessing internet using anything other than Your WLAN card like a USB modem, Ethernet etc. This is because your Wireless adapter(WLAN) will be used for Broadcasting your Internet connection to your friends.
Server laptop:- Laptop with Internet Connection.Client Laptop:- Laptops accessing the internet of server laptop.
Follow the steps to share your internet connection..here it goes:--0b73509.gif
  1. Open the "Control Panel" of the laptop that is accessing Internet and go to "Network and Internet" then "Network and Sharing Center".
  2. On the right side of the "Network and Sharing Center" click the "Change Adapter Settings" and you will see all the available network adapters in your laptop.
  3. Now Right-Click the adapter through which you access internet and click "Properties" option. The properties window will open.
  4. In "properies" Window click the "sharing" tab check "Allow other network user to connect through this computer's Internet connection"97ac799.jpg
  5. In the sharing tab, Select "Home networking connection" type as "Wireless Network Connection" click "OK" and select "Yes" to the Confirmation warning. see above image.
  6. Now Right-Click the "Wireless Network Connection" in "Change Adapter Settings"and Open Its Properties.
  7. In "Wireless Network Connection Properties" Double-click the "Internet Protocol Version 4(TCP/IPv4)" and select the "Use following IP address"
  8. Enter the IP address as "192.168.000.001" and "Subnet mask" as "255.255.255.0"
  9. Leave all other fields blank in Server laptop, which has access to internet.0219162.jpg
  10. Now setup a wireless "ad hoc" computer to computer connection using "setup a new connection or network" in "network and sharing center" and Name it as anything like "Internet_sharing".c2debe7.jpg3a69972.jpg
  11. Now bring other laptops that will use the Shared Internet connection.
  12. Open "Change adapter Setting" (Described in step 2).
  13. In "Change adapter settings" Right-click "wireless Network Adapter" and Click its properties.
  14. In "Wireless Network Connection Properties" Double-click the "Internet Protocol Version 4(TCP/IPv4)" and enter following IP address:-
  15. IP address-"192.168.000.002", Subnet mask "255.255.255.0", Default gateway-"192.168.0.001" and Preferred DNS server: "192.168.000.001".
  16. Use the same step from 11 to 15 to connect other laptops and Increase the IP address by +1. Ex- 192.168.0.3, 192.168.0.4 & so on. Rest of the settings like Default gateway etc will be same on all laptops. Only the server laptop will have blank entries in these settings.
  17. Now connect all the laptop with the Wireless network(ad-hoc) named "Internet-sharing" that you had previously broadcasted in step 10 in server laptop.
  18. Now in the server laptop, disconnect and then reconnect the internet connection(This is a necessary step for Internet Connection sharing(ICS) to work).
  19. Now access internet in all laptops...ENjoy.
Note:- For Advance Users.. this information is necessary only--The IP address of server laptop work as the "Default gateway" and Preferred DNS server of Client laptop and on server laptop these fields are blank. Use same series of IP address as used in the server.

My laptop drops the internet then in a moment it comes back then repeats over and over


Several computer models include two specific hardware components that enable the device to connect to the Internet: an Ethernet adapter card and a wireless adapter card.

These cards are also called network adapters, or network cards.
If your computer suffers from an intermittent Internet connection, and your Internet service provider (ISP) doesn't detect any issues on their end, you can update the software for the network adapters to resolve the intermittent connection.

If updating the adapters doesn't resolve the problem, reset the transmission control protocol/internet protocol (TCP/IP) and Winsock to restore the connection.

Click "Start." Click "Control Panel."
Type "manager" into the search bar.
Click "Device Manager."

Expand "Network Adapters."
You should have one wired adapter and one wireless adapter, if the computer has wireless support.

Double-click each adapter.
Write down the name of the adapter, as well as the manufacturer's name.

Go to the computer or network adapter manufacturer's website if you installed the adapter to the computer yourself.
If the adapter came with the computer, go to the computer manufacturer's site instead.

Select the "Support," "Download" or "Drivers" page.
Look up your computer or adapter model.

Select your operating system.
Click the "Network," "LAN" or "Internet" category.

Download the latest adapters for your network devices.
Click "Save" or "Save As" and save the files to your desktop.

Return to Device Manager. Right-click the first device. Click "Update Driver Software."
Click "Browse My Computer for Driver Software."

Follow the remaining on-screen directions to reinstall the device driver.
Repeat the process for the other network device.

Restart the computer after reinstalling the drivers to repair the intermittent Internet issue.

Reset IP

Log in to Windows as an administrator.
Hold down the Ctrl, Shift and Esc keys to open Windows Task Manager.

Click "File." Click "New Task." Type "cmd" and press Enter to open Command Prompt.

Type "netsh int IP reset c:\resetlog.txt" into the Command Prompt.
Press Enter to rewrite the TCP/IP registry keys.

Enter "netsh winsock reset" into the command-line prompt.
Press Enter to reset the Winsock catalog and resolve the intermittent Internet problem.

I am connected to the internet but my netbook internet explorer will not load up any websites


Please check that your network adapter is really connected to an Internet source (i.e. cablemodem, router, access point), then according to the used network adapter (i.e. Ethernet, Wireless), look into its state, it will show you if you have a local (limitted) connection only or a Internet connection, if happen the first and you have anothers PC having Internet in the same network, it means that your network adapter is misconfigured or failing.

No connection to the network


The first thing I'd do is go to the control panel, then select the device manager option. In there, you should see an option for the network adapters - if you open it up, the network adapters on the computer will be listed. If there's a conflict that is preventing the device from running properly, you should see an exclamation point against it.

Another possibility is that the wireless network adapter may just be turned off. In the control panel, go to Network and Internet, then Network and Sharing center. (This applies to Vista; if you are using an earlier OS, it may be different.) From there, click Manage network connections, and you should see a network adapter icon - you can click Enable to turn the device on if it is currently disabled.

Compaq Laptop Network Adapter


Hi,
Just to make sure im understanding the situation properly - you have a laptop and connect to the internet through a wireless network right? And then when you go to open up internet explorer or whatever program you use it basically says you're not connected to the internet.

It does sound like your wireless card has gone bad but when you say that it still has the icon down the bottom of the screen telling you that you're connected to the network, it sounds like it could be something else. It could be a range of things from there though, there are some viruses that corrupt something called the LSP and when that is broken it has the same symptoms as you described. Also it could just be a setting in your anti-virus. I know that Kaspersky Internet Security suite has a problem with its anti-hacker function that blocks internet from working like that.

Try disabling all of your anti-virus / firewall programs and then accessing the internet. If that works then its only a small problem. If it doesnt work and the icon is still there saying you are connected to the wireless then there is a small program to try running called LSP Fix, available at:

http://cexx.org/lspfix.htm

Other than that i'm out of ideas. Changing the wireless network card in a laptop does sound challenging though.

Hope my mini-essay helps,
Daniel
