Yes you can, just connect a ethernet cable from a spare ethernet port on the router and connect it to your other pc, it should detect the hardware and install install if ror you. Try huthinson3G for a free cell phone and a really chep package, i am a 3G customer and could possibly get you a discount

directly connect the dsl modem to your pc and then restart your system. once your up and running the pc should automatically create a connection with the modem device. once you have established an internet connewction this way, shut down the system and reboot. after complete bootup, unplug the power supply cords to both the modem and the router. now plug im the modem, wait 1 minute and plug in the router. after about a minute you should now be able to connect to the internet both by your pc and wireless connections.

I am trying to hook up to my new comp. and new internet and the lights come on for the wireless, wired and router r green then the modem light is red, what am i doing wrong


There is nothing wrong with your modem. There are modems that when you turn it on, the wireless, dsl lights are green while the power light is red then after a few seconds, the green lights disappear and the red light will turn green. After sometime green light will come back on. This means your modem is restarting and doing a self check.
If the power light stays red, then you a have a problem with your modem.

Verify that the software you are trying is COMPATIBLE with the operating system on the computer.

Try removing the software and re-installing it in SAFE mode before plugging in the USB or Ethernet cable.

Wireless connection set up


Are you trying to hook up the laptop wirelessly to the pc? because then the pc would need to have a wireless card as well....sounds like I need more info, but if you are trying to do what I think you are, you should just get a wireless router instead, hook the pc tower directly to it via ethernet cable, and then setup the laptop to connect to the router. The router would hook to your dsl or cable router....what service do you have?

Cant find the ethernet port on my sony desktop


It should be located on the top right hand side, on the SIDE of the computer. It looks just like a phone jack hook up. Hope this helps. Also, if you don't have one or can't find it you can always plug in an adapter to the telephone line and then you can plug the ethernet cord into that.

I can't conect my dsl in my computer


Hi,

Most DSL would need an interface of some sort commonly called a modem. Normally the DSL would come in to the modem and the modem would output it to your PC either through an Ethernet port or through a USB port. Of course an active subscription to the DSL provider is a prerequisite.

Standard network settings for the PC would be to "Obtain an IP address automatically". This would work on either wired Ethernet hook up or WiFi connection. Of course prerequisite would be correctly installed hardware and supporting drivers.

If your concern has not been addresses or if problem persist, you need to p[ost back your modem's brand & model, your ISP, your type of connection and the brand and model of your.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Ethernet for my dell 4600 pc


No, you don't need a card, as long as you have an Ethernet to USB adapter, you should be just fine.
