You can try disabling the Network Connection in which the modem uses, and create a new one for the wireless, or go to device manager and disable the modem in there by going into the properties of the modem and selecting "Do not use this device"

My HP Probook 4720S has a very wierd problem. The wireless card seems to be working properly, and the drivers are up to date.However it cannot detect the wi-fi in my office.Other laptops are connected so...


If you have a wireless router and it is connected to the DSLor cable modem then - To connect to your wireless router, the router needsits wireless settings to be configured with the SSID, encryption key etc., alsothe wireless cards and wireless adapters in all the laptops/computers needs tobe configured with these router's wireless settings. Then the laptops/desktopcomputers can communicate with your wireless router and access the Internet via the DSLor cable modem.
If the other laptops are connecting to the wireless router, then look at the wireless card configuration in these laptops and apply the same settings to your HP Probook wireless card.

Dial up connection needs a modem for the authentication with a telephone number - without modem no one can work with internet .yes if you want to use your laptop wireless you can do it but to do that you should have a DSL service with a wireless router .
this is how the connections in DSL is been done
DSL(telephone line) ->modem->wireless router->computer

Latest problem. I cannot connect to the wireless modem in my home.this is one of three machines through the modem.The other machines get,and are online, no problem,This laptop had the mother board replaced...


one problem might be when the engineers configured the connection when it was repaired, they would have used different settings as the connection would have been at the factory(etc) maybe the settings need re-configuring for your hardware.

Adding laptop to home system through Belkin59G .


Good Day!

I believe you are trying to connect wirelessly using your laptop to your wireless router(Belkin 59G). Try to hook it up first on your computer and check if you can go online.

If yes, then that's the time you go to the router's set up page and check the wireless security of the router so that you can connect wirelessly.

If not, then you have to reconfigure the router and the modem. If your internet service provider is cable you can just turn off the router then the modem and waitfor 5 seconds. Turn on the modem, wait for the lights to turn on then the router. After that, check if the computer will be able to go online when connected directly to the router.

How to install wireless


First, do you have a wireless router? I am assuming the AT & T service is DSL (am I incorrect?).
For a wireless network, you need a cable or DSL modem, then that is hooked to a wireless router that transmits the signal. The laptop is then set up to connect to the wireless network that you have created.
When you buy a wireless router, there is normally a setup disk that will help you do all of this.

Just give a shout if you need more help.

Cannot connect to wifi on our bt home hub


Could be a variety of reasons.
Assuming you have not had it working before
Assuming the wifi is broadcasting it SSID
Assuming you have laptop connected by ethernet cable to hub:

Assuming you have XP:

Go to start/control panel/network connections/right click the wireless lan icon and select properties/select wireless connections and delete ALL previous entries.

With Vista go:start globe then

Control Panel\Network and Sharing\Manage Wireless Networks and delete all entries

Now:

press windows key and R
type cmd and enter
type ipconfig and enter
note lower set of figures ie 192.168.0.1
open browser and type in those figures and enter
should now open router firmware
When asked for log in use defaults of admin - admin or admin - password

navigate to wireless security and set encryption to WEP 64bit and create a simple encryption code - save settings

Change broadcast channel to 8

make sure wifi is set to open and not shared

Save all settings, allow hub to reboot and now see what happens
