Laptop died and now I cant connect my desktop with the belkin usb adapter. It just keeps saying aquiring network address.


Use the Ethernet cable to verify the router or modem is working and connects to the Internet. If so, then check your wireless adapter in the desk top through device manager - it should detect the Belkin. Also, verify you are entering the correct WEP keys to access the wireless connection to the router or modem - sometimes it gets typed in wrong.

I can't get the onboard network connection to work. Wireless works fine. When I look at properties it says that it is connected.


The Ethernet jack might have a broken wire inside the laptop. Try a modem that uses a USB connection instead of Ethernet - if it works, then the Ethernet jack has an open wire.

Can't get online help please says unable to connect do i need anything special a chip or card to get on to wifi


Hello

The error message lets me believe you have a wireless card already.If you have the driver installation disk for this pc notebook try to reinstall them from the cd or dvd.

You do need a wireless ethernet card, if you want to run wireless.This is a small device that plugs into the side of your laptop when u use it.

Other wise there is a port for a ethernet cable in the back of the laptop for a ethernet wire,looks like a phone jack just a little bigger.

Apple USB Ethernet suddenly not functional with mac book air


I've run into a similar problem myself. The problem could be that there is another device in the area using the same frequency and is causing interference. Try changing the frequency on your adapter. If you've recently added a wireless device and you can't change the frequency on your adapter try changing the frequency on the new device or turning it off to test if it's the problem.
It's possible someone else in the area has added a device that's causing the problem look around for new wireless devices or antenna in the area.

Ethernet adapter error during install


Your ethernet adapter might be disabled. Go to Control Panel > Network Connections and look for Local Area Connection. Right-click it and choose Enable. Or go to Device Manager and Enable it there. If that didn't help, try to use a different Ethernet cable.

The RJ11 jack is for connecting to a phone line, your laptop has a built-in phone modem.
You need a network card with a RJ45 jack, there are numerious PCMCIA network card available, there are also USB network devices that you can use. I suggest you use a PCMCIA network card, and leaves the USB port free for other uses.

Cannot connect to internet thru ethernet jack on computer


It could be. Check your Device Manager and make sure the device isn't disabled. Also each adapter has its own TCP/IP settings so make sure yours on your ethernet adapter are set the same as your USB adapter that is working. If it does turn out to be bad you can always add a new ethernet card for cheap.

Ethernet cable does not fit


The modem jack is too small because it is for a phone line connection not an ethernet connection. If you want to get online by dial-up, you need to connect modem to a phone line. Ohterwise look for another input jack on the laptop that the ethernet cable will insert to.

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.

USB Connection


Hi floinmist .

Westell 6100 modem by default can only be used for 1 PC . It cannot orit is not enabled to use for 2or morer computers as it creates a conflict within. Ethernet connection is the BEST connection for you to use.> your USB is sent to you by you provider { ISP} or by westell packages. Its is only a spare cable just in case your PC doesnt support ethernet connection ,  nothing else. 

To resolve this issue you might want to upgrade your modem to a router w/c is westell versalink . You can connect 2 or more computers  { wired or wireless connection } and is more stable compared to your westell 6100.

Connecting 2 computers could cause slow, intermittent and NO connections at all problems.

IF you have other questions pls feel free to ask and let me know if theres anything ii can assist you with .

Best wishes.

Prince
