Right-click on your wireless connection in your tray. click disable.
you then should be able to just plug the ethernet cable into your laptop and windows will pick up the new connection down in your taskbar. click on it and make sure it is connected.

Let me know :)

Cannot connect to internet wireless


First things first, make sure the router you are using is wireless capable and you know the ssid and WEP to connect.

- check your wireless switch on your laptop.
- if you are using a router, try to connect it directly to your laptop to better isolate the issue.
- if its connected online wired to your router and you were able to connect to the internet, that means there's no problem with your router adn your internet connection its just that we have to make sure we got the right SSID (name of your wireless connection) and WEP (password for your wireless connection).
- you should be able to connect if those are checked

What Does playstation 3 error code 80710723 mean?


In fact, this is a system update error. What this means is that the error is caused when something goes awry during a system software/firmware update, or whilst you are attempting to update/download a game. We know this because it belongs to the "80x" family of error codes, which signify connection and network based errors on the PS3. Basically, something has gone wrong while you were updating your console.

A common factor behind this is a faulty Internet connection. Typically, this occurs on consoles that are connected to the update network via a wireless connection; wireless is much less reliable than an actual hard-wired connection as it can be interrupted relatively easily. Therefore, you are much better off to use a wired connection to avoid the PS3 error 80710723. Also, you may have to reset your modem/router.

Many gamers find that the problem can be resolved by firstly switching to a wired Internet connection, and secondly disabling the "media server" option in the network settings menu on their PS3 console. Sometimes, the RSS setting must be disabled too.

You can see the instructions for fixing this error in more detail by clicking the following link, where you will learn exactly what you need to do to fix the PS3 error 80710723. Don't pay someone else to do the job for you; do it yourself and save both money and time.

Title: Setting up your Linksys Router for the first time Article ID: 21463
Your Linksys Wireless-N Router comes with the Cisco Connect software which makes setting up and managing your Linksys Wireless-N Router a quick and simple experience. You'll have your Linksys Wireless-N Router up and running in no time.

NOTE: The Linksys E2100L router is only available in the U.S. For help on setting up a Valet or Valet Plus, please click here.

Some basic requirements before you begin
i. An active Internet connection.
ii. A computer with a wireless or wired Ethernet adapter, running one of the operating systems below.
- Windows XP with Service Pack 3
- Windows Vista with Service Pack 1 or better
- Windows 7
- Mac OS X Tiger 10.4.9
- Mac OS X Tiger 10.4.11
- Mac OS X Leopard 10.5.8
- Mac OS X Snow Leopard 10.6.1
Getting started
Provided that the above requirements are met, you can now begin setting up your Linksys Wireless-N Router. In this example, we'll be setting up the Linksys E3000 High Performance Wireless-N Router. The following steps will walk you through the entire process.
Step 1:
Your Linksys Wireless-N Router allows you the freedom of running setup via a wired or wireless connection. Therefore, please start by performing the instructions under the description that best matches the computer you're working with. Proceed to Step 2 once you're done.
Description A:
You are using a computer with no wireless connectivity that is normally connected with an Ethernet cable to your DSL/Cable modem.

Instructions A:
Please connect one end of the supplied Ethernet cable into the Ethernet port on your computer, and connect the other end into one of the numbered Ethernet ports at the back of your Linksys Wireless-N Router.
Description B:
You are using a laptop with a built-in wireless adapter.

Instructions B:
If you're using a laptop, please ensure that its wireless feature is switched ON, and that your laptop is positioned within 5 feet of your Linksys Wireless-N Router.
NOTE: Most laptops have a switch that turns its wireless feature ON and OFF. Refer to your laptop's documentation or online help if you're unsure where this switch is. This doesn't apply if you purchased an external wireless adapter separately.
Step 2:
On your computer, insert the supplied Setup CD that came with your Router. Setup should start automatically.

NOTE: If setup doesn't load automatically, please click here.

Step 3:
The first screen greets you with the Software End User License Agreement. Please take a moment to read through and understand the agreement. Once you're ready, go ahead and click Next.

kb21463-002_en.png Plug one end of the power cable into your router and the other end into an electrical outlet.

NOTE: The Linksys E3000 features a power switch, located at the back-end of the unit, next to the power port. Please make sure that this switch is ON. Other Router models may not have this feature.

After completing the above steps, click Next to continue.

kb21463-005_en.png
Step 5:
Setup will now perform a series of tests to determine the optimum configurations for your network. You may notice your computer connecting and disconnecting to a wireless network several times. This is normal. Your wireless network is simply being secured.
NOTE: The setup process automatically generates a unique and secure Wireless Network Name (SSID) for your convenience.

kb21463-006_en.png Step 6:
The next part of the setup automatically detects your Internet connection type. If you are using a DSL connection, you may be requested to enter your account details. If this is the case, simply enter your Account name and Password in the allocated fields. Otherwise, you may skip ahead to Step 7.
NOTE: If you don't know your Account name and Password, your Internet Service Provider (ISP) will be able to provide these details.

QUICK TIP: Click Examples to see what your Account name should look like.

kb21463-007_en.png NOTE: Cable Internet users will not see the above screen.
Step 7:
Sit back and wait a moment as setup finalizes your Linksys Wireless-N Router settings, and re-establishes your Internet connection.

kb21463-008_en.png Step 8:
Once your Internet connection is up and running, a confirmation window similar to the screenshot below will appear on your screen. Your Linksys Wireless-N Router is now secure and connected to the Internet. This concludes the setup process. Click OK to continue.

kb21463-009_en.png
Step 9:
You will now be taken to the main Cisco Connect window which lets you manage and further personalize your network settings. If you would like to learn more about the available features in Cisco Connect, please click here. Otherwise, you may click on the Close button to exit Cisco Connect, and begin surfing the Internet right away.

kb21463-010_en.png NOTE: Cisco Connect is automatically installed each time you use the Setup CD or Easy Setup Key to setup or connect to your Linksys Wireless-N Router.

How can I connect my alltel internet card to my wii system


Unfortunately you cannot insert your USB modem into your Wii and have it recognized. Your Wii does not have the ability to operate plug and play devices in the way that your lap top does. The Wii needs to be hooked up to a LAN (local area network) via a wireless G connection from a wireless router or wireless capable modem, or hard wired to a modem or router with an ethernet cable (looks like a big phone wire).

There is a way to share your lap tops internet connection using an ethernet switch (depending on your operating system). If this is an option that you wish to explore and you have the necessary hardware, re-post asking how to set up a shared internet connection using a computer as a residential gateway. Depending on your operating system this can be done quite easily. You will need a computer with an internet connection (which you have), a 10/100 Ethernet switch, and two Ethernet cables. A switch is relatively inexpensive and the wires are as well.

I hope that this helps you with your problem.

Good Luck!
