Your laptop should have a built in network card and 10baseT network port, if your laptop does not have a built in network card you can use either a PCMCIA network card or a USB network adapter. Your desktop computer may not have a network card, you will need to purchase a network card and install the drivers.
To connect the two computers together you only need a cross over cable. If you use a hub you can connect two or more computers together using standard 10baseT network cables.

    Hi Vanessa,

    Your laptop model has an Integrated Network Card

    Data Link
    . The network cable (a 10baseT cable) will plug into a socket on the side or the back of your laptop (this socket looks like a telephone socket but slightly larger). Your laptop also has a Integrated modem, and is one way you can connect to the the Internet, though it is slower than by DSL or cable,

    You will not need a USB network adapter for the laptop.

    As I said before you may need a network card for your desktop computer.

    Since you are new to computing you will need assistance in setting up and purchasing components for your home network.

    I can go into details of what you need but as a beginner it will not mean much to you, I suggest you get a computer savy friend to help you.

    Good luck to you and a Happy New Year

I have compaq c700 laptop, i connect usb network modem ,only i am able to connect voip only, but when i open the browser(internet explore,chrome etc) page it was not connected


Im not sure what kinda modem you have ..but I think if you connect it via usb you need to install the driver for it ...so ..if you have a driver cd ..run it and make it be seen by the computer ..Usually the modem can run without driver but only on the network port in the network card ..This explains why the phone works and not the internet connection itself..Either use it in the Lan card port ..and make the settings you need for the network ...by log into it using it's IP address in the browser ...or install the driver and try to connect it by usb ..

Card slot location on acer 5740-5255? I tried to insert at front of laptop but too big. Do I need an adapter? I am using Scan Disc pro Que


I can't find a Scan Disc pro Que, but I can find a Sandisk Pro Duo, which is a micro SD card.

You will need either an adaptor or a USB cable which can connect the device which uses the card to you laptop.

There are a couple of types of adaptor, one basically converts the micro card to and looks like an ordinary SD card. The other looks like a USB flash drive which you slot the micro card into.

Really cheap on Ebay. Just search for a Micro SD card adaptor.

I have problems with my desktop and was going to use my old Comapq Presario until I can get the desk top fixed. How can I hook that old laptop up to the internet. All I see are dial-up options


you will likely need to add an ethernet interface / network card. If you have a spare USB port, then use a USB Network adapter. If not, then you will need to use a PCMCIA (aka PC Card) network adapter.

Motherboard died on my Toshiba Satellite A105 S4334


That is a tricky one. Guessing that you already have the new laptop, there is a usb adaptor that accepts SATA, IDE 3.5" and IDE 2.5" drives. You plug your drive into this adaptor, and plug the usb into your new computer. Now you can access all of the files on the old hard drive.

How do I fit wireless card into medion mim2120 laptop?


I assume you mean "wi-fi" wireless access. The easy solution if wireless networking wasn't built in is to use a USB wireless adapter that simply plugs in to any USB connector on the laptop. These adaptors are available at retailers where you can buy computers as well as from many online sources. The adapter will come with any software and installation instructions you need.

Please take a moment to give this solution a fixya rating if it has been what you needed, and thanks for asking here!

Hi there please help me out here, i have got a new pc prob 4 mnths old now but it there isnt no wireless on it, can yu please tell me what i have to do as i have bougt laptops for my kids bout the router...


To my knowledge, this laptop does not have an in-build wireless card. You will need to purchase a wireless USB adaptor such as pixel-clr.gif Netgear WPN111 or a D-Link WUA-1340. You can go into any computer store and ask or a wireless USB adaptor. They're fairly inexpensive ($10 - $50).

Simply load the drivers onto the laptop and plug it in. Scan for your network and connect. The manual that accompanies the USB adaptor will give you all the details you need for this.
