The problem is that Express Gate uses a cut down installation of Linux embedded on the motherboard to allow you to boot the computer in a very basic mode to access the internet to check email etc. Linux supports most network cards but it will not natively support your USB mobile broadband device. I managed to get my Vodafone aircard working in Linux, but you need to add drivers and kernel support for it and i'm pretty sure that won't be possible with the embedded cut down Linux that Express Gate uses.....

(suggestions for video card upgrade on Gateway DX4870-UB318)


I know a Asus 7770 2GB works great with this pc. For some reason I couldn't get a Nvdia GTX 650 Ti to work on this computer. I would plug it in I wouldn't get anything on my television or audio. I recomend you purchasing the Asus 7770 2GB because I have it and I can play all my games on Ultra settings including Battle Field 3. Of course you would have to upgrade your power supply to at least 500 watts. Hope this helps, if anyone can solve my 650 Ti issue it would be a big help. Thanks guys I hope you have a great day!

I really believe this is a heat issue a blocked vent deep in the cage where the copper tubing and the vent meet I bet it is full of dust compacted. I would clean that out and have some more Heat Sync paste placed on the CPU plate on top. When my computer overheats it does the same thing so I did this and not a problem since. Also I use one of those underneath cooling fans that sucks the heat out as well. Just a thought!....John

Ask COMCAST for the names of their POP-server and of their MAIL-server, and configure Outlook Express to use those names.

Microsoft Live Mail is "web-based" -- all you need to do is to web-surf to their web-site, login, and click "send/receive" or click "compose" and later "send".

Setting up a computer as a wireless internet router


for windows xp you man set up the connection via cable or bluetooth and ms active sync - the htc (windows mobile) is able to use the hosts network connection.
you may also set up an ad-hoc wlan on you eee and turn on internet connection sharing for your mobile broadband connection. if you connect your eee to the ad-hoc wlan it should be able to access the internet

Try reseating te broadband connection to the router.

It soundslike your router works if it connects to your laptop with a great signal. But its not sending any information through.

Try reseating. if it does not work. you might need to do a fresh reinstall of the router. Usually the broadband connections attach itself to a mac address of a network card. If you recently put a new router the network cards MAC address is different and it might not send signals through. like for me for cable i have the same issue.

Try this let me know how it does. If any problems please let me know.

I hope this helps

Wireless internet


you need to get a PCI Wireless card or a USB Wireless adapter, if you are talking about an 802.11 wireless router.

If you are talking about Sprint wireless Broadband or the link (WWAN service) you'll need a USB WWAN adapter which are available by all major Wireless vendors (Verizon, Sprint, ATT etc(
