Question about Motorola PC Desktops

1 Answer

I have a motorola wireless modem; have had it for years. It's worked great. It works now well on the computer I'm currently using, an iMac. Over the last several months, I've either not been able to connect through the Motorola, like today, or the connection strength has been very low. That's the problem. Any ideas? Note: last night there were four people with lap tops close to the modem and could not connect either. So it does not seem to be only my computer. Two lap tops were Macs the other two were Vaios.

Hi NoMamasTomas...
Yes your computer can have wireless as long as you have a wireless modem hooked up to your main computer
A wireless card that will work for your Windows Me machine is made by SMC.
I am sure there are others that will work in your computer also but I have this type sitting on my desk at this very moment.
So I will give you the website to look at a couple of ones.
Please take time to rate me

This is only a problem with the firmware of your modem/router that you need to update it, because a network device like a modem and router that is working fine for severla years and suddenly stop working you just need to update the firmware of it and it should be working fine again, to update the firmware of the modem/router just need to call the manufacturer for that....

Hope that helps.........

Cable and wireless question


Not possible, since the "input" to the 2WIRE modem is a 4-wire telephone-line, not an 8-wire Ethernet cable.

Instead, spend about $40 to buy a D-Link Wireless G modem, and connect its WAN port to the cable-modem, and connect up to 4 Ethernet cables to "wired" computers, and configure the "wireless" component of the D-Link router.

Router greatly slows up/downloads to 25% of direct from modem


I am using a Belkin N1 Vision router with Vonage and i am having no issues with speed at the moment. What OS and connection are you using. If its Vista and Wireless make sure you are using AES encryption and not TKIP as my wireless network was painfully slow using TKIP and lightning with AES and WPA2

Compaq SR1720NZ to wireless?


i believe the simplest way to do this is to buy a external USB wireless adaptor for your computer. thats saying that your dsl modem has a wireless signal being broadcasted already . if you dont have wireless built into your DSL or Cable modem, you will also need a wireless capable router to send it to your computer...
keep in mind that the wireless external network adapter could easily be used with ANY computer to connect wirelessly, so it's not limmitted to just your current hardware.

Hello! I very much doubt that Memory will cause the problem you have. Are you using a secure network? if so you may have to pair it again with the p.c. try this! hover over the internet icon on the taskbar (2 computor monitors) it should show wireless networks available, if not right click on it then click set up network or search for available networks, if this fails uninstall the wireless router in the device manager and reload after re booting.
Hope this helps!

Did you see the wireless signal or your network status in the computer with the wireless adaptor?
If yes, select your wireless network and connect your device.

If no, check the status of your wireless card first
My PC >> Properties >> Hardware >> Device Manager >> Network

If the wireless is marked ( ! ) Install the right driver for your wireless card

If ok, try to set up your wireless connection with windows wireless utility instead of HP utility.
(if necesary uninstall HP utility)

If the firewall can't be fixed this issue is related to your antivirus that it is blocking the setting.

Let me know how it is going...

Connecting a router


To connect more than one computer to same network, you need to use a router. Two modems will not work on same network.
My suggestion:
Buy a wireless modem router for cable broadband (and eventually a wireless network card for the other computer.
Here is an example: Linksys BEFW11S4 Wireless-B 4-Port Cable/DSL
Ask retailer to get right model for your broadband.
Connect the remote computer with wireless.
