3Com 7760 (3CRWE776075US) 802.11a/b/g...

I have been using the internet for about a year on wirless without a router or modem. the signal has been poor. hence the purchase of the 3com 7760.
it does not say on system requirements that i require modem or router and man in shop i also dont need these because the unit is a stand alone and just needs configuring as a wi-fi unit. i have got the unit wired to powersupply where from this point the box flasing indicates wireless is sending and recieving but computer wont pick. it says connected limited access or local only. the 3com is connected from power to ethernet interface!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! HELP

Hi there

I think up to now you've been using someone else's Internet service, by picking up the signal wirelessly. You need your own Internet Service. You now connect your access point in the way the Internet Service Provider guide you. It is a different set up with cable (they provide a modem) or with BT (connection through your phone line).

    I'm sorry but I think your problem is still that your access point is not configured to receive the internet from an Internet Service Provider.... You haven't told me if you have any contract with a service provider. Access points don't work in a stand alone way.... generally you connect the access point to the cable modem or to BT telephone line (using using ASDL filter on the line). Now the access point gets the Internet connection, which it then farms out wirelessly. Here's some useful links: (one is the manual of setting up your own model of access point.

    No, unfortunately, it can't work that way. When you buy a bluetooth dongle, you still pay someone for the service... Hope you can get yourself a good ISP deal... I'll end the call here.

Want to get on internet with my lap top via wireless what card do i need for the inspirion 8100


first of all you need to check with your internet provider to see what modem you can use. a wirless 802.11g card (the farthest range) if your provider has a wirless modem i would get it from them. and a wirless modem/router. i use bellsouth wirless dsl and bought the equipment from them. if you have a wirless modem/ router already then you just need the card and configure it.

Connecting Dlink DI-514 with my another 3com router (wireless)


No, the router requires an Ethernet cable be plugged into the back of it to receive its Internet signal.

As far as I'm aware there are no consumer-grade routers that will pick up a wireless signal from another router and use that as the Internet source.

Sorry you didn't get the answer you were after. :-\

Connecting a wireless router to Tiscalli broadband connection


  1. USB modem is connecting a PC USB port with a DSL phone line: CANNOT be connected to a ROUTER LAN (ethernet NOT USB port).
  2. Wireless ROUTER is NOT a modem and it CANNOT connect the Internet (or WAN) LAN port to any "phone line"
  3. Connect the Router Internet (WAN) port to Modem (you need a LAN MODEM = a modem with a LAN/ETHERNET port)
  4. Be sure your internet is running before strting ROUTER configuration with Router Company CD

Wirless router


The last thing you want to do is get rid of the password - operating an unsecured WiFi network can be very hazardous to your privacy & finances! You need to set the WEP password in the PC's. If you install the 3Com router software and use that to set things up, it will guide you through doing the job.

Also, it's better to use WPA encryption rather than WEP which is now regarded as insecure and little better than nothing at all. If you can get it working OK on WEP, it'd be easy enough to change it to WPA in the router & then change the setup on the PC's.

Unless you live in the back of beyond, this really is necessary I'm afraid :{
