There is only two ways to possibly connect both the desktop and the laptop in the network. That is to purchase a router so you can connect them both or a route with a wireless and then the laptop (Which most new ones have a wireless capability installed) can connect wireless from anywhere in the home. If you already have a Cable or DSL Modem it may have a wireless capability. Otherwise you would have to get a wireless modem. Hope this helps. Bud

Hi, I have brought my dell laptop at work with vista operating system. It connects to internet networks wirelessly. I am trying to connect the work printer to my laptop but am not sure how to start. The...


hi,
you do not need a CD to connect to the printer, what you should do is gain access to the print server. this can be done by asking your network administrator. in a situation where you don't have one or the network is an open one, you have to connect to the printer network, open your ipv4 properties and select obtain an ip address automatically, do the same with the DNS server and you're good to go.
just so i'm thorough, after connecting to the print server / network, you can access your network ipv4 properties by right-clicking on the network icon located at the lower right corner of your taskbar, (the bar at the bottom of your screen) usually in form of two computer monitors. select network and sharing center after right-clicking. a list of wireless network should be available if there are more than one wireless networks in the area. select view status of the print server / network, click on properties, a pop-up box appears. be sure 'file and printer sharing for microsoft network' is checked, double-click "internet protocol v4 (ip/tcpv4)' select obtain an ip address automatically, select the same for the dns server below. click OK you're good to go.
note
once you are successfully connected to the print server, click on Devices and Printers from the start menu, select the printer and allow the drivers to be installed from the server. once that is done, you can right-click on the printer and select set as default. after this all you have to do is connect and print whenever you want to.
hope this helps
let me know if there's anything you don't understand or if this doesn't resolve it.

Dir-601 wireless router isn't giving us internet connection. We are able to connect to the internet using only the modem directly.


Try
START
RUN
CMD
PING
192.168.2.1 or 192.168.1.1
if it works you have a connection to the router .
Now try
Ping bbc.co.uk if it works you have internet connection but cant find DNS SERVER. In this case;
START
CONTROL PANEL
NETWORK CONNECTIONS
RIGHT CLICK WIFI ADAPTER
choose PROPERTIES
select "this computer uses..."
INTERNET PROTOCOL (TCP/IP)
PROPERTIES
"OBTAIN INTERNET ADDRESS AUTOMATICALLY" tick

also tick OBTAIN DNS AUTOMATICALLY
SAVE and Close network properties

REBOOT ROUTER and PC

recheck PING bbc.co.uk ...if successful ensure or use internet explorer

Difference between proxy server firewall and something called a gateway firewall ....Just a homework question..need another angle other then the veryconfusing textbook


In computer networks, a proxy server is a server (a computer system or an application program) that acts as an intermediary for requests from clients seeking resources from other servers. A client connects to the proxy server, requesting some service, such as a file, connection, web page, or other resource, available from a different server. The proxy server evaluates the request according to its filtering rules. For example, it may filter traffic by IP address or protocol. If the request is validated by the filter, the proxy provides the resource by connecting to the relevant server and requesting the service on behalf of the client. A proxy server may optionally alter the client's request or the server's response, and sometimes it may serve the request without contacting the specified server. In this case, it 'caches' responses from the remote server, and returns subsequent requests for the same content directly.
A proxy server has many potential purposes, including:
  • To keep machines behind it anonymous (mainly for security).[1]
  • To speed up access to resources (using caching). Web proxies are commonly used to cache web pages from a web server.[2]
  • To apply access policy to network services or content, e.g. to block undesired sites.
  • To log / audit usage, i.e. to provide company employee Internet usage reporting.
  • To bypass security/ parental controls.
  • To scan transmitted content before delivery for malware.
  • To scan outbound content, e.g. for data leak protection.
  • To circumvent regional restrictions.
A proxy server that passes requests and replies unmodified is usually called a gateway or sometimes tunneling proxy.
A proxy server can be placed in the user's local computer or at various points between the user and the destination servers on the Internet.
A reverse proxy is a (usually) Internet-facing proxy used as a front-end to control and protect access to a server on a private network, commonly also performing tasks such as load-balancing, authentication, decryption or caching

A firewall is a dedicated appliance, or software running on a computer, which inspects network traffic passing through it, and denies or permits passage based on a set of rules.
It is a software or hardware that is normally placed between a protected network and an unprotected network and acts like a gate to protect assets to ensure that nothing private goes out and nothing malicious comes in.
A firewall's basic task is to regulate some of the flow of traffic between computer networks of different trust levels. Typical examples are the Internet which is a zone with no trust and an internal network which is a zone of higher trust. A zone with an intermediate trust level, situated between the Internet and a trusted internal network, is often referred to as a "perimeter network" or Demilitarized zone (DMZ).
A firewall's function within a network is similar to physical firewalls with fire doors in building construction. In the former case, it is used to prevent network intrusion to the private network. In the latter case, it is intended to contain and delay structural fire from spreading to adjacent structures.
Without proper configuration, a firewall can often become worthless. Standard security practices dictate a "default-deny" firewall ruleset, in which the only network connections which are allowed are the ones that have been explicitly allowed. Unfortunately, such a configuration requires detailed understanding of the network applications and endpoints required for the organization's day-to-day operation. Many businesses lack such understanding, and therefore implement a "default-allow" ruleset, in which all traffic is allowed unless it has been specifically blocked. This configuration makes inadvertent network connections and system compromise much more likely.

Computer can't find printer


Your using an Ethernet cable and your not on a network. You most likely need a USB cable, or connect the computer and printer together with a router. How are you accessing the internet from home?

Printer only runs with usb,


If you're trying to run your USB printer over a wireless connection, a USB device server like the Silex SX2000U2 will connect to your USB printer, then provide a wired network connection that you can connect to your wireless access point. Belkin also has a "USB Network Hub" that does the same.

This will make the printer available on your network and you can print to it from another computer wired or wirelessly.

Driver for Dell A940 printer for my new Mac lap top


There is no mac driver for the Dell A940. What you could possibly do is, if you have a network, connect the printer to a windows PC, set it up as a print server and then connect to the print server from your mac.
