Normally you would connect your DSL or Cable Modem to the WAN or Internet port of your router. Then you will connect your Desktop and/or laptop to one of the available switch ports. They usually have 4 of them. You use standard ethernet cables for all of the connections.

I have just purchased a Toshiba Sattlelite laptop computer and bought the router. My problem is i dont know how to get the router connected to my laptop. I have a desktop and dsl modem but not sure how...


Theencryption key secures your data from unauthorized access. The router's password is a Passphrase or the WEP or WPA orWPA2 encryption key. The Passphrase generates the WEP or WPA or WPA2 encryptionkey and this is in the router's wireless settings. To connect to your wireless router, it needs the router'swireless settings configured ie SSID, WPA or WPA2 encryption key and also thewireless cards in all the laptops and or computers needs to be configured withthese router's wireless settings. Then the laptops and desktop computers cancommunicate with your wireless router.

These are some reasons why your new Hp laptop can't connect through your Netgear Router is because your Router has a security that used a password to connect to your router or the ip address of your desktop and Dell laptop is already setup to the router to work with internet.

You can learn how to setup your router easily.

Wifi getting connected with new linksys


You need to call Linksys again for them to help you setup the other computer. For the none-working computer, you don't need to run the setup CD for the router. All you need to do is connect to wireless network like what you did on the working laptop.

Getting the security to go through on laptop


You just need to re-enter the passkey you set-up on the router to re-connect.

If you don't know this, go into the router configuration page (you may need to use a physical network cable to do this) and reset the passkey to a new one.

Choosing a router


You need not to worry about the letters g or n, but if you mast know; then the g (and n) stands for a protocol that is used for transmitting data i.e. a highway that “transmit” cars.
The “old” g is being replaced by the “new” n, which is supposed to be faster.
 
Now back to you question.
The new model n is faster, and without doubt more expensive, and as the “older” g has been working without problems for many years, I would buy one of these.

Networking question


Ok, you have several options. Go to a website such as bestbuy.com. Type in linksys and look of wireless access points, wireless usb adapters or a wireless desktop adapter. I would go with the third one.
