    Do you have a router?

How to find a IP address for my emachines laptop


go to start -- run and type in CMD
hit enter to open a black command prompt window

type in "ipconfig" without the quotes and hit enter. This will give you your IP address.

If you need the IP address from your provider that you are using out on the public internet, just go to http://whatismyipaddress.com/ and it will tell you what your external public IP address is.

You will need to manually configure the IP for your Local Network Connection: right click on the notification icon, go to Properties, double click Internet protocol version 4 (TCP/IPv4) Or click properties, click Use the following IP address and input the correct data according with the settings in your network - change just the IP first.

Need help connecting wireless router


To connect a laptop to a wireless network for accessing internet....you have two ways:-

  1. DHCP (Dynamic Host Control Protocol)
  2. Manual entry of settings in wireless adapter properties.
1.DHCP:-
In DHCP method you dont have to enter any settings on the wireless adapter. The wireless network which you are connecting will automatically assign an IP Address to you. But to use DHCP it must be supported by your wireless network.

2. Manual entry of settings in wireless adapter properties.

This method is mostly used over wireless Connection in small networks connecting 2-200 computers. In this method you have to obtain the following information from your connection provider.
  • IP address (Its format is "xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx")
  • Default gateway address (very important)
  • Primary and secondary DNS (If not given then you can use "8.8.8.8" as primary DNS and "8.8.4.4" as Secondary DNS...thats free DNS service from google and its very fast)
  • Subnet Mask (not needed mostly...automatically generated)
To enter these settings you have to rightclick the Wireless Adapter>> and select properties>>Then double click the Internet Protocol version 4(TCP/IPv4) and enter these settings. In many cases when you are using proxy server then you have yo use proxy settings also in your browser..
Hope this will help....Cheers..:)

The external ip address (the one assigned by your isp) can be found at: http://whatismyip.com/

The internal ip address (differentiates the computers on your network) can be found by running the command prompt (start --> run--> cmd or start--> all programs --> accessories --> command prompt) and then typing int eh following command: "ipconfig" (without quotes). It will be the set of numbers in the form 192.168.something.something

Good luck, let me know if you have any questions

I can not get a connection to the internet


That's Ok.

Is your computer connected directly to the cable modem from comcast and what type of connection if it is?(USB or Ethernet/LAN-its look like a telephone chord for slightly larger) or are you using a router?

First thing that you need to check is the actual modem(box provided by comcast normally the brands are; arris, motorola, webstar, samsung or linksys. Make sure the LED light on the front of the modem that say's either Online/Ready/Cable/nternet is stable or solidly lit.

Go to Control Panel and look for Network and Internet or Network and Sharing Center, on the top left hand side you will find tasks, look for manage network connection and check if you have a local area connection, right click the icon and go to Status then Details. Check if you have an IPv4 IP address(58.x.x.x or 271.x.x.x or something like that) if the IPv4 show as 169.254.x.x(where x can be number s from 0 to 254) its an invalid IP or your computer is not getting any valid IP from Comcast.
