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,

Usually such problems occur when the administrator to the internet service decides to block a particular user from accessing the internet or sets a password for users on the internet. The best bet is to contact your neighbour as he will be the best person to tell you what happened.

Router connecting to Linksys USB adapter

to confirm if your Network adapter's assigned IP, subnet, Gateway & DNS
  • Start > Run > cmd
  • at cmd prompt type: ipconfig /all
  • look at the parameters given to your Network Device that is connected to the router (IP, Subnet, Gateway & DNS Servers.
  • Verify those addresses if they are reachable by pingging. Check your IP, Gateway, then check for the DNS Addresses. Type cmd prompt: ping ip_address << do not omit the periods between the numbers.
  • See if there are replies from those addresses. if you get Request timed out, tell us here which part you get one. if you can receive a reply from those addresses (gateway & DNS Servers) definitely you are already connected to the internet. Just check your Browser's connection setting.

Wireless internet

1. Go into the Network Connections (Start->Control Panel, Network Connections)
2. Locate your Wireless Adapter and make a RIGHT click on the icon.
3. Click on "View Wireless Networks"

If that does not work, it may mean that your wireless adapter is using a customized software to manage wireless networks. This is the case for my Intel Wireless adapter. In this case, look in Start->All programs for a program from your wireless adapter or laptop manufacturer (if the card is embeded). If you tell me the exact name of your wireless adapter, I should be able to help you a little further.

Network Adapter


Based on your post/description:.
1. “I am able to connect to a wireless network but am not able to connect to the internet.”
Indicates that your wireless network adapter is working since "able to connect to a wireless network". The "not able to connect to the internet" may be settings/configurations.
2. “When the computer tries to self diagnose, it says there may be a problem with one or more of the computer's network adapters
Which can only be your wired network adapter (Ethernet) but since you are not using that but your WiFi, should not make any difference.

To simplify, let’s focus on the Internet connection. Pls verify/determine that:
a. the wireless network is connected to a modem and can access the Internet;
b. the brand/model/version of the wireless Access Point/Router and its IP address;
c. the wireless security method being used by the network (WEP, WPA, MAC filter); and
d. the IP settings given by the DHCP server (which is also the router) to your PC which includes IP Address, Subnet Mask, Default Gateway & DNS Servers.

Pls post back results of a, b, c, & d that we can figure out the solution for your concern.

In the meantime, you can try right clicking on your networking icon (bottom right side) and click on repair.

Good luck and kind regards.
