How do I connect my netgear router to my desktop internet to use with my laptop. Followed instructions but when cable is disconnect from my laptop I can't connect to the internet


First Connect the Desktop with Netgear Router with the Ethernet cable. Open the Netgear GUI and configure a Wireless Network. Once its configured, switch On the WiFi switch from your Laptop and try to connect your Laptop. Make sure your laptop has an in-built Wifi adapter, if it doesn't then you would need to buy an USB based Wifi Adapter.

Also if you want to use the Internet with your Desktop PC without being connected with the Netgear Router then make sure it has Wireless connection capability.

I wish to connect to my wireless network via my new dell laptop but the password i have entered is incorrect. the laptop is now connected to the internet/network but with limited accesss, when i try to...


Do you know now the password for your wireless??

If no then on the PC/laptop that it was orginally installed-click on start and run and type cmd which will open up command prompt.

Type in the black box -ipconfig...

Whatever the IP address is for your default gateway type it in Internet explorer which will open up your wireless router settings and you should be able to open up wireless security and find out what your password is..

When this is done disconnect from your wireless on the dell laptop and after disconnecting connect to your wireless again and enter your password and see if that fixes things.

Thanks

Wireless Network working on laptop, lost internet on desktop.


If you disconnect the desktop from the modem, were you able to get an Internet connection in your laptop?
In order to get Internet connectivity on your desktop at the same time with the laptop, then the desktop needs to be connected to the router. It should be connected to one of the Ethernet ports at the back of the router. Since, your desktop doesn't have an Ethernet port, then you need to connect a USB to Ethernet adapter to your desktop. Then from that adapter, you will connect to it an Ethernet cable going to the router.

You may check the following models:
Linksys USB200M
Linksys USB100TX
Belkin Gigabit USB 2.0 Network Adapter(F5D5055)
D-Link DUB-E100

There are other brands that offer USB to Ethernet adapters that you can check.

Hope this helps!

Internet runs slow or freezes on my wired desktop when I use the internet on my wireless laptop.


Hi tech_newbie.... Need a little more info... how is your wireless connected.. ethernet /Usb... or true wireless... and vice versa for desktop. where is your wireless router situated... what times are you experiencing the slow connection!

In addition.. first try running a good Spyware/ adaware programme such as Spybot.. and alongside side another programme called... a-square.. and with AVG.. all of which are free... see links below..

http://www.safer-networking.org/en/download/index.html

http://free.grisoft.com/doc/2/

http://www.emsisoft.com/en/software/free/

Try this first.. they are all pretty good programmes when used in conjunction with each other, you;ll be surorised at what you find.... Get back to me if this does not eliminate your problem
