The only access point I have to choose from after setting up my wireless router (BELKIN G PLUS MIMO) is named mikes...think that may be my nephew, I think he made a password and I didn't know it. Can I...


You need permission from your nephew to use his wireless connection. In this case he will give you the password, otherwise you need to get your own wireless router and Internet connection.

How can i connect my desktop computer to the internet plz i need someone to help


Currently, the most common way to connect a desktop system to the internet, is by using the network jack to connect to a broadband cable modem or DSL modem. To do either you must have the service from either you cable provider or phone company (For DSL) and have the modem device for the service. Fees run $20 to $50 a month depending on speed you subscribe.
You connect the device to the system using a CAT5 network cable to a RJ45 (8 wire telephone type jack). Some Cable/DSL modems also have USB connection capability for the few systems these days that do not have a built in RJ45 connector To use them, you install the associated software, then connect the USB cable when prompted.
If you don't have Cable/DSL then dial up telephone modem is the next option, this requires a telephone modem that has an RJ11c telephone cord jack connection, most current computers only have a telephone modem as an option, but they can still be bought for around $20 and you will require a dial up internet service (Few remain, one is Netzero in the USA)

Have moved from sky to plus net and need to


Hi There,

I'm assuming that your router is connected by a network cable;

Go to your network connections, right-click on the connection for your router, select 'status', click the 'support' tab. Make a note of the 'Default Gateway' IP address.
Start your internet browser, in the address bar type the IP address. You should then arrive at your router's control panel.

Hope this helps.

Regards,

MC.
