Question about Linksys Wireless-G Broadband Router

2 Answers

Wireless connection I have internet access on my regular Compaq Presario computer through comcast with an "Aris" modem. I would like to use my wireless Dell laptop also. Someone gave me a Linksys Wireless-B Broadband Router but I do not know how to hook it up - or even if I can. Any suggestions?

Check the Linksys web site for the manual. Follow the directions. Linksys routers have very easy set up routines and are designed for the novice.

    Winipcfg is for Win95 & Win98.



    I assume you are using XP.



    Go: Start>Run, Type: CMD



    The DOS window will come up.



    Type: IPCONFIG



    To exit the DOS window, Type: EXIT

I just switched to TimeWarnerCable/Internet. How do I connect two PC's to the Aris TM602G Modem? Then How do I connect my Laptop? Bob


You connect the Aris to a wireless router with say 4 LAN ports.
You connect the PCs with LAN cables to the LAN ports on the wireless router and install a wireless card in the laptop if it does not have one.
To secure your wireless network from unauthorized access, please click on this link and follow my instructions :-

I am getting ready to switch from dial-up to satellite internet service, I have a Compaq Presario SR1730T and need to know what type of wireless router is best or will any wireless router be compatible????


Usually the internet service provider (even satellite) provides a modem/router to access the internet. This being said to purchase a wireless router must mean that you are going to "broadcast" your satellite internet throughout the house so that others in the house can access the internet.

In that case, no it doesn't really matter what kind of wireless router to buy. Just make sure you connect your satellite modem/router (what they send you) into the wireless router correctly. Also, make sure you put a password on that wireless router so that your neighbors or unknown persons do not gain access to your internet/computer.

Thanks.

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.

If you connect the computer directly to the modem, does it work?
If that works then the modem is working.
Now connect the computer to the router and the modem to the router.
You will need to open the set up page of the router to check the settings of the router.
You can set up the router without the CD also.
It is very easy.

Do you know for sure there is a wireless connection in the area you trying to connect, Wireless internet isn't accessible every were and when it is available it could be protected by a security pass phrase. The only way to really get full use out of your wireless internet is to go to a company that sells the wireless internet cards

Wireless MODEM for Internet connection compatibility with Laptop


Compaq/HP laptops that have a builtin wireless adapter have a wireless transmitter symbol near the bottom edge of the LCD screen.
If you don't have a wireless adapter you need either a PCMCIA or a USB wireless adapter. My choice would be a PCMCIA type because it frees up a USB port for other devices.

Wireless connection lost


Wirless and modem systems both are different, there is no connection between them.

If you were using your modem for internet access then you should chek-out your modem and phone-lines etc. Wirless will not effect.

verify your modem driver is installed correctly and check the settings.

Thanks
