I have a acer aspire 5735z and cannot connect to my new adsl modem, telstra ( internet provider) told me to ring acer, will the acer company tell me i need a new drive and will i have to pay for it??? this...


Is your Telstra/Bigpond ADSL modem has a built-in wireless router?
If the ADSL modem has a built-in wireless router and your laptop does not have a wireless card, then you have two options to connect your laptop to the ADSL wireless router/Internet -
1. Purchase a PCMCIA wireless adapter and insert it into the PCMCIA slot in your laptop. One of my favourites is made by Netgear.
or
2. Purchase a USB wireless adapter, the only disadvantage with this solution is, it uses a USB port and if your laptop has only one USB port. This is a problem if you need to connect other USB devices. Then you also need to purchase a 4 port USB hub to give you additional USB ports.

Need help with Wifi Connection with COMPAQ EVO N610C LAPTOP


First you will need a router which will enable you to create a wireless network for your internet connection. I recommend, if you're purchasing online, to use Tigerdirect. Then you would need a USB wireless adapter for your laptop which will enable it to communicate with the wireless router and establish an internet connection.
Below are some links for the most affordable and best rated products you need.

ATT wireless router not working


All of the things you mentioned here are correct. But if you can purchase a power adapter with the same specs as the original power cord that came with the router it should work too.

Can I use old 2wire router to connect PC to new wireless router?


Hi, You can not use a router to connect a computer to another wireless router. You need to purchase a wireless adapter if you want to connect a computer wirelessly to the network. There seems no other way of doing this.

Let me know if you need any further help regarding this.

Have two computers but only one will get internet access


The tech is right, you can only have 1 modem on your residential line. The 2-wire router/modem should
have 4 ports in back to share with other computers AND a wireless signal too. You can run an
ethernet cable to your bedroom or get an adapter (either USB or PCI card) to connect to your router and
share the modem. If you go wireless, the 2-wire router is by default an encrypted signal. The password
is on the sticker, usually all numbers. Look at manual for changing configuration.

Power Light Blinks, can't communicate with Linksys Network Adapte


Seems to be a common issue among these routers. If you tried to upgrade the firmware via wireless connection then it will generally fail. It is recommended to upgrade through the wired connection. In most cases if the upgrade failed and will not reset, most likely the firmware on the router has been damaged. Your best bet is to purchase a new router.

Purchased wireless router and it does not work. I was told by tech support from the router that I "need to upgrade my adapter"?


Yes, it may be that the wireless card that you have is defective or its disabled. If you can connect by using a direct network cable (cat5) connection to the router (if its a combo router ) from your PC's network card ( not necessarily your wireless card unless its also a combo) then the router is good. You may also need to upgrade your wireless driver or may just need the correct driver.

Marcia...............Is this a small home system here. Was this an onsite tech. ISP is Internet Service Provider and not so sure that is the issue. WOW this can get confusing. Perhaps this tech can redo his work for sake of your time. An adapter does allow the ISP to see how many PCs you are using.
Sorry Marcia .................Really would be nice if Mr. Tech could reassist you on this.

Laptop connection to Internet


In the simplest terms buy a longer ethernet cable or multiple ethernet cables and route them to several preferred areas.

However believing you probably would like to connect wirelessly

If your laptop has a built-in network card and originally came with Vista you may need to configure the network adapter and/or the router appropriately. There are often user guides for the both the adapter and router that will assist.

If your laptop has an built-in wireless adapter and you upgraded to Vista you should check the manufacturers website using support or drivers links to see if they have Vista software/drivers to support your built-in wireless adapter. IF not you may want to consider the purchase of a compatible add-on wireless adapter as noted below. And perform the appropriate configuration(s) as noted above.

Likewise if your laptop does not have a wireless adapter you may wish to consider purchasing an adapter. Care must be taken that the adapter is compatible with your computer, your operating system (Vista) and your wireless router (apparently WBR-1310).
