    Can you clarify a bit. From your question I can gather you have a desktop connected to the internet and a laptop that isnt? what operating system are they running? Do you have a router or just the broadband modem?

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

With the indulgence of jmichelsen4, two ways:

  • a router if the satellite modem uses Ethernet port;
  • a hub or crossover cable if the satellite modem uses USB port on the host computer.
Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.

If my lap top dosent have aa cd rom how do i downloead the intructions on my lap top ill i have is a house computer usb adapter belkin and a belkin surf n300 wireless routef


If you have a desktop you can share the cdrom drive over the network and access the cdrom drive from the notebook of the desktop. its a lot slower but it will work.

place both computers on the same workgroup
right click on desktop cd rom drive and click share drive
then on the notebook go to strat run type //"name of desktop computer"
if you dont know the name right click on my computer and should display computer name

I have a printer connected to my computer this on a usb and on broad band i wont to use my printer on my other lap top thats also got broad band . how do you do this


Assuming Windows XP, others similar.

Start >> Settings >> Printers & Faxes.
Right click on the printer, choose sharing option.
Enable Sharing, enter a simple name for the printer.
Hit Apply and Okay buttons. You may now get a notice from your firewall program, adjust settings accordingly.

On the laptop with no printer,
Start >> Settings >> Printers & Faxes.
Install Printer, Check Network Printer, Search Network.
Enter driver disk when prompted.
You will only be able to print when the first computer is running.

Some caveats will be firewalls, routers / access points in AP Isolation mode, different operating systems (conflicts sometimes), and issue that the host computer has to be on for anybody else to print to it. Much fewer headache to use a printer that has networking built into it, or use a router that supports USB printers.

Having problems connecting a lap top computer to the internet.


Connect the router directly via lan to your computer.
goto setup of the router: usuallly via the ip-adress of your router (see manual, usually: 192.168. ***.*)
Now look at the network security-settings .

Connection problem


The first thing to check is that both of your computers are assigned to the same workgroup name. Right click 'my computer' and select properties. Change the workgroup name so that they are identical on both machines. You will need to reboot if you change the name one one or both of the machines.

Use two computers with one printer


Printer Sharing (This is good for Windows 2000, XP and Vista)
Sharing will be very easy if your network is working.
You need to consider the computer where the printer connected as the "Host" and the other computer that wants to print to that printer as the "Client".
Before you do such sharing, you need to acquire each computer's IP address.
You can do it by accessing MSDOS Prompt and typing in ipconfig/all. Write down your IP addresses and the share name on a paper.
For your Host:
Install the driver, make sure that you can print on direct bi-directional connection (such as USB).
Go to Control Panel >Printers and Faxes* >Sharing >Share this printer >Type in your share name, good example is PRINTER (this is case sensitive).
For your Client:
Install the driver, make sure that you can print, same with the Host.
Go to Control Panel >Printers and Faxes* >Properties >Ports >Add Port >Add local port type in \\ (the IP Addressof the Host) \ (share name), click OK.
ex. \\192.168.1.3\PRINTER (watch your backslash, no spaces)
*Term used is "Printers" for Windows Vista and Windows 2000
