You are not going to like the answer I have for you. Forget connecting wireless with X-box. Purchase a router with an Ethernet port. I do this for a living and run in to this problem all the time. Trust me, hard wire with X-box is the way to go. A Lynksys router is a good router and is also VERY user friendly.

Can I download modem on dell laptop


Most of the time on laptops if there is no phone input for a modem you cannot just plug in and dial up. The process i use at home for my pc is dialing through my cell phone. If your carrier will allow you to tether your phone without extra charges check your phone manufacturers website for modem software. You then just connect your phone through a usb cable and set a internet connection matching your carriers instructions. Another solution is dificult without networking knowledge but you can set up a home pc with a wireless antennae as a ad-hoc server through internet connection sharing and then allow your laptop to connect through the "server" pc.

Need a windows 7 driver for utstarcom UM100c


It looks like Cricket doesn't really support this for windows 7. But the following site has some information from other owners of this modem that seem to have a working solution there. You might want to check it out.

Utstarcom um100c modem drivers for windows 7


1. Start the install process as normal, you will get to the section that asks you to plug in the um100c.
Windows will not automatically install these drivers for you.

2. Leave the setup program running and open up Device Manager
3. Find UTStarcom UM100C under unknown devices.
4. Manually search for the driver in "C:\Program Files (x86)\Cricket\QuickLink Mobile\System\driver".
After it installs there will be two more unknown devices in Device Manager. Repeat the manual driver lookup in the same location to install them.

5. After that go back to the setup program, you should now be able to click on Next to finish it.

How do you hook up xbox 360 to cricket a600 broadban


Yes, but if you want to connect the X-box and computer directly you may need to get a crossover cable. Sorry, I can't say for sure on this as it depends on the network card in the PC.

You should have a box in the configuration dialog for the Cricket saying something like "Allow other network users to connect through this computers internet connection". Be sure this box is checked.

No connectivity


usually windows doesnt detect external modems except when they are connected through usb port which is plug and play. i guess after connecting the modem with lan port of pc try configuring the settings in windows and modem for internet connection to work. if the led of lan on modem is stable it means the modem is connected to pc well.

Xbox live via cricket wireless


I can connect to XBox Live through this fashion on my Cricket Modem:

Now, I have had problems with this fix running Windows 7 (still can't get it to work), but I didn't have any struggles with XP or Vista.

You need to go into Manage Network Connections, right click on your Cricket Modem, and select Properties.

Click the Share Tab, and click it so it allows other users to connect through that network connection. Now, go to the Networking tab under Properties and right click on the Internet Protocol Version 6 and make sure it is automatically assigning both DNS and the 6 IP, Apply.

Next do the same with the TCP/IPV4 section under Networking, make sure everthing is automaticaly assigning.

Click on the Router and make sure that it is automatically assigning the Internet Protocol 4 and 6. Now click diagnos, and it should reset the router, automatically apply the correct settings, and bam. You SHOULD be able to connect with XBox Live.

I have no problems with this with Vista and XP, as I stated before. But now my main computer is running the 7 RC and I can't figure the darn thing out yet. So I figured out a cute solution. I took my Dell Mini, connected the Cricket Modem to it, and ran an ethernet cord from the XBox to the Mini.

Pretty much same solution after that, only instead of selecting your router, you select the LAN connection that is not your Cricket. For me itassigns the XBox as LAN and the Cricket as LAN2.

Let's see how it goes. :)

WirelessModem


First to clarify; is this a WIRELESS ROUTER?
If it is OK, there are also LAN/ethernet outputs on it as well.
DESKTOP COMPUTERS do not typically contain Wi-Fi apadters or 'antenna', these are in most all laptops made these days.
If you have a wireless Wi-Fi Router then it should be fairly straitforward to connect laptops (Start Menu>Connect To, in Windows)
You may have to either HARD WIRE (ethernet line) or buy an internal Wi-Fi or USB Wi-Fi Adapter/antenna. If it's a fairly recent wireless router this becomes fairly straight forward after that.

DSL --> MODEM --> SWITCH <-- PC

you could get a wired/wireless AP (Access Point) for your PC and run ICS (Internet Connection Sharing) through Windows. connect the XBOX through your PC

Linksys Phone Adapter with Router Model SPA2102-R Connecting to Internet


from the cable modem or dsl connection, connect to WAN on the linksys device From PC port to the computer. you will have to make sure if all the port or opened. Normally DATAONE will not block any ports but its always adviceable to check if all the potrs are opened. you will have to put your mac code on the modem. If that does not work you might have to clone your device (information transfer from modem to your device) and you should be good to go...............
