Hi and welcome to FixYa,

The simplest would be:

  • run the home computer as it is, connected to the Internet through dialup;
  • in the home computer, enable Internet Connection Sharing;
  • purchase a crossover Ethernet cable;
  • plug the crossover Ehternet cable from the home computer to the laptop.
If you want more details or a step by step, post back;
  • Operating Systems of the home computer and the laptop;
  • is the laptop WiFi capable and do you want to use it;
  • are you planning to use DSL if and when available and/or add PCs later.
Just a start, do postback how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.

Ok, I don't know if you have just a normal ADSL modem or a wireles ADSL modem router (the wire from the phone point will connect to one of these) If the router is wireless and your laptop supports wireless, then we need to know which of these you have.
Please give a detailed description so we can help you further.

1)Prepare your modem. Unplug the modem's power cord and place the wireless router unit next to the modem. If the router has antennas, make sure they are raised to their full upright position.
2)Reassign your networking cable. Unplug the cable currently connected from your computer to your modem and plug it into the port located in the wireless router. This port is usually colored blue.
3)Connect the router and the modem. Use the networking cable that came with your wireless router to connect the modem and router unit. The router port is typically colored in green.
4)Start up your modem. Plug in the modem's power cord and wait 1-2 minutes while it configures its settings and prepares to connect to the Internet.5
5)Start up the wireless router. Plug the wireless router's power cord into an outlet and wait 1-2 minutes to get it started. The router is ready when the 'wired computers' and 'modem' icons light up. These logos or icons vary by make and model of your router so consult the owner's manual if needed.6
6)Insert your installation CD. Use the wizard or assistant to check the configurations of your computer settings and launch your wirelessnetwork Wanting wireless hookup - clip_image001.gif

What you need to do is run the dial-up to your desktop. Then have a router that you run a Cat 5 cable from your desktop to it. Then run a cable from the router to your laptop and then configure your desktop and laptop settings to set up a network under Start>Control Panel>Connections

If you have any specific questions while doing this, please let me know

Here's my take:
internet -> dial-up modem -> desktop (share the connection) -> router -> other computer (wired or WIRELESS)
note: must turn OFF DHCP on router and set manual IP to it and to the other computer

2 ways to do that

get a router with a dial-up feature like the SMC 7004BR broadband Barricade router with dialup fallback.

or

make your home computer (desktop?) share the internet connection. you need a small hub to connect both computers to create a home network. have the desktop use the modem, connect to ISP, then launch the Network Setup Wizard.

    omit the "small hub" requirement as you already have a Dlink router (will act as a hub)

    tried searching for an external dial-up modem with ethernet port for your dlink router connection, it's either it doesn't exist or are as rare as hen's teeth.

Well if your using dial up it may be more trouble than its wrorth. Generally, Wireless routers use network or Patch cables and connect to a High speed modem. if you want to use dial up, you would have to get a dial up wirless modem, which are probably hard to find now a days, at a local store. You could get a port splitter and install the dial up software on the laptop and wire it directly in just like the pc is, into the phone jack, but you can only have one at a time using the dial up or you will get data colisions like when some one calls and it kicks you off.


One otehr option is to get a Mode that connects through the phone line, like AT&T used to do, then, from the Modem you plug a Wirless router into it. Configure the router so that your laptop can connact wirelessly, try to connect you computer with a hard wire if you can or get a wirless card for it.

So then basically you have a small home network that goes through a modem that goes through the phone line.

For this you would have to have a service provider though that covers your Area. I would call them all, compare prices and see whats available.

As far as hardware, routers and modems can be found at walmart or any computer store.

Good luck

Cd for linksys wrt160n router


To connect to your wireless router, the router's wireless settings needs to be configured with the SSID, encryption etc. and also the wireless cards in all the laptops/computers needs to be configured with these router's wireless settings. Then the laptops/desktop computers can communicate with your wireless router.
Connect a LAN cable from the Linksys to the LAN port on your computer.
Open a browser and enter the Linksys configuration URL
http://192.168.1.1
The default login = admin
The default PW = admin
You can protect your router by changing the default admin PW (write it down and put it in a safe place)
Go to the wireless configuration and set up the SSID and WPA or WPA2 encryption.
Now apply these settings to the wireless card in your laptop/computer.

WEP key fro netgear DG834G v3 WIRELESS ROUTER/MODEM


Okay, first you will need to access your router (usually 192.168.0.1 or something like that) you will be asked for a user name and password. (admin password respectively if you never set these up previously)

From there you would click on Wireless Settings and scroll down to WEP Key. Whatever is typed in Key 1 is your WEP key. Write that down. Plug in those numbers for your printer and you should be go to go.

Apple user attempting to fix dad's dell laptop windows xp home edition


I'm confused because you say your trying to make a lan connection on the dell laptop but your connecting it via firewire into a DSL modem. doing this method would be a WAN connection and not a LAN connection. To make a lan connection you need to connect the laptop via network cable (or wireless connection) to a router that is connected to your actiontek dsl modem.

I can help you connect the laptop to the internet but 1st i need to know if your trying to connect it to a router or did you want to do a wan connection from the dsl modem.

Thanks,
Brad Nelson

PPPoE connection is set up

1. Control Panel, double-click Network Connections. 2. Click the PPPoE connection under the Broadband group that you want to share, and then click Change settings of this connection under Network Tasks. 3. On the Advanced tab, click to select the Allow other network users to connect through this computer's Internet connection check box. 4. PPPoE connections behave in a similar way as do dial-up networking (DUN) connections, and you may want the connection to be automatically dialed when another computer on your network attempts to connect to the Internet. To do this, click to select the Establish a dial-up connection whenever a computer on my network attempts to access the Internet check box. 5. If you want to allow other network users to enable or disable the shared Internet connection, click to select the Allow other network users to control or disable the shared Internet connection check box. 6. Under Internet Connection Sharing, in Home networking connection, click the LAN (Local Area Network) connection that connects the computer that is sharing its PPPoE Internet connection to the other computers on your network.

Belkin wireless router installation with a laptop that has an internal modem


Depending on the operating system that you are running, and if you have the appropriate wireless cards, you should be able to do this either with or without the modem. If you have the modem connected to one computer, and wireless cards on both computers, then your best option would be to just connect directly from one computer to the next. If you can tell me the answers to these few questions, I can help you get on the right path.

What operating system are you running? Windows XP? Vista? Macintosh?

Do both of your computers have wireless network cards? If not, then which computers have the wireless network, and which computer has the modem?
