SOURCE: need to get wireless on my laptop,

that modem is not a router, you will need a wireless router to get internet on your laptop. but don't buy a cheepy router or your internet will be incredibly slow. And don't buy one in any store because you will pay way too much. The best place to buy one is probably online where you can shop compare prices. netgear makes good wireless routers.

The SB4200 Modem according to the Motorola website does NOT have wireless capabilities. In fact not a lot of cable modems do have wireless built in to them.

That is the modem to which you refered and it does not have wireless. In order to connect your Wii wirelessly you would need to purchase a WIRELESS ROUTER, which most major stores carry varios brands such as Linksys or Netgear.

"Step 1

I would suggest you to boot the computer in safe mode and check if you can boot to the desktop and post back the result. To boot to the desktop in safe mode with networking keep tapping F8 key during restart. Once you see the option to boot in safe mode with networking select it and press enter.

Access the link to know more about how to boot the computer in safe mode:

Step 2

If you are unable to boot to the computer in safe mode, you may try to perform a system restore from Windows Recovery Enviornment (WINRE Mode) to an earlier date and check if it helps you fix the issue.

If you have Windows Vista disk you may try to perform a system restore using Windows Vista disk:

a. Insert the installation disc.

b. Restart your computer.

c. If prompted, press any key to start Windows from the installation disc.

Note: If your computer is not configured to start from a CD or DVD, check the information that came with your computer. You may need to change your computer's BIOS settings. For more information, see BIOS: frequently asked questions.

d. Choose your language settings, and then click Next.

e. Click Repair your computer.

f. Select the operating system you want to repair, and then click Next.

g. On the System Recovery Options menu, click System restore and select the date when the computer was working fine.

If System Recovery Options is a preinstalled recovery option on your computer:

a. Remove all floppy disks, CDs, and DVDs from your computer, and then restart your computer.

Click the Start button, click the arrow next to the Lock button, and then click Restart.

b. Do one of the following:

• If your computer has a single operating system installed, press and hold the F8 key as your computer restarts. You need to press F8 before the Windows logo appears. If the Windows logo appears, you will need to try again by waiting until the Windows logon prompt appears, and then shutting down and restarting your computer.

• If your computer has more than one operating system, use the arrow keys to highlight the operating system you want to repair, and then press and hold F8.

c. On the Advanced Boot Options screen, use the arrow keys to highlight Repair your computer, and then press ENTER. (If Repair your computer is not listed as an option, then your computer does not include System Recovery Option as a preinstalled recovery option.)

d. Select a keyboard layout, and then click next.

e. Select a user name and enter the password, and then click OK.

f. On the System Recovery Options menu, click system restore and restore the computer to the date it was working fine.

After running the system restore check if you can boot to the desktop normally.

I am trying to check my husband's email for him while he is out of town. Everytime I go to, it goes straight to my email and I don't know how to get into his account. Can you help?

I guess both of you have an email account to, but only your email password and log-in name is the only one that your computer remembered. So here are the steps:
1. click the Start button located at the bottom left of your screen(if your using Win Vista or 7 it would be the circular Windows logo)
2. click Control Panel, select Internet Options
3. under Browsing History click delete
4. and then put a check mark under Passwords, Temporary Internet Files and History.
5. Open up a fresh email browser such as Internet Explorer, Firefox etc.
6. go to website and then you will see that the log-in and password fields are empty then you can try to log-in using your husbands user name and password

Now start the computer at the same time holding down the delete button until you get the bios screen up using the arrows move to the boot up section
set the cd as the 1st boot option save yes and press escape button
shut the computer down , wait a few seconds the press start again
If you have saved the boot sequence correctly the cd will start and the win vista program will load and the screen will open
when it is completed and the computer is running and you have finished , close it down wait a few seconds , start band hold the delete key down , go to boot in bios and change the 1st boot to hard drive

When I set up the router It comes back with the internet is not hook up, but when I hook the intern et up to the lap top it goes right through Please help me with this problem

try restarting the modem while it is connected to the router. the modem probably thinks that it is hooked straight up to a computer not a router. if that doesn't work go to the web gui by going to the routers ip address on a computer connected to the router. the easiest way to find its ip is to go to run (or the bottom search bar if in vista) and type in cmd. once this is up type in ipconfig /all look for the the default gateway. write this number down somewere.
next go get on a web browser (internet exploiter or fire fox) and in the address bar type in that number. this will take you to the web gui. start adjusting the router so that it works with your internet service.
