I upgraded my toshiba NB200 from XP to Vista, but can no longer connect to the internet. Diagnostics is telling me that the computer does not have a wireless network adapter installed. It worked on XP....


Use an Ethernet cable to connect the LAN port on the Toshiba to your cable-modem (or DSL-modem) or to your home-router.

Then, run 'Windows Update', and look for "Optional Hardware" updates, which should include the correct device-driver for the wireless adapter.

Wireless Home network will not stay connected to internet


So you have a DSL modem connected to a router connected to a wireless router connected to both your computers? Sounds like you need to just get a wireless modem and throw all the routers away.

DSL line disconnects on WRT54GS only


Try to change the LAN IP address of your router to 192.168.2.1 by accessing the router's Setup page. You also need to set your Westell modem to "full-bridge mode". You need to ask assistance from your ISP to bridge the modem. After that, set-up the Linksys router to PPPoE then power cycle it.

Reboot your computer,

Check your cables in machine especially the one that looks like an oversized phone cord. (cat5). Unplug replug.

If you have cable modem power down along with any wireless router power cable modem up first wait 30 seconds to 1 minutes. Then power router on

If it is dsl just unplug and replug the dsl modem and any attached routers plug in dsl modem first then plug in router if applicable.

My desktop uses a DSL internet connection but my lap top will not pick up the signal from it to connect even when I have it sitting right next to my desktop. If I actually unplug yellow connection cord...


Having your laptop sitting next to your desktop will not let your laptop connect to the DSL link.

You need what's called a Wireless Router. (assuming your laptop has a wireless adapter, if not you'll need a network cable for that.

1. Go to the store, buy a wireless router
2. install router in between your DSL modem and the computer.
3. Plug the WAN port into the DSL modem (cable is usually included with the router)
4. Plug the desktop into the back of one of the ports of the wireless router
5. Run the setup disk
6. For manual configuration of the router you can usually go to: 192.168.0.1 or 192.168.1.1 or 192.168.2.1 depending on the brand)
7. If you don't know anything about networking, let the install disk do all the work.
8. Follow the instructions on what it tells you your configuration is for your wireless network.
9. Go to your laptop, apply said instructions.
10. ???
11. Profit.

Changing from DSL to Road Runner Turbo


I'm sorry to say but you cannot bypass the modem capability of the DSL Westell Modem/router because that is really made to function as a DSL modem and a router at the same time, so the best way to make everything work here since you change from DSL to Cable internet just need to get a wireless router like a Linksys WRT54G that can make everything work again like before.....

Most linksys routers have 4 to 5 ethernet ports to connect computers to.

One of the ports will be marked as the one to connect to your DSL or Cable Modem

Usually when looking at the back of the router the WAN port will be located to the far left.

Netgear Wireless Router 108 MBPS


It's not the same. Your Netgear router version is V1. I did not find any downloadable upgrades either - I have the same router. My connection problem turned out to be between my DSL modem (AT&T), router and PC. What I needed to do was, under "Basic Settings," click no where it asks if your service requires login, then at the bottom of the tab, click the option to acquire the MAC address directly from the wired (desktop) computer. ("this computer" on the tab) Once I had done that, the router enable the modem correctly and I could use the desktop and the wireless access for my laptop. Frustrating, because if you have AT&T as your service provider, Netgear's instructions tell you to do the exact opposite.
