Wireless in Mexico

I have a Gateway laptop. I am signed up with SWB for wireless. I am planning a trip into Mexico and I want to take my laptop with me. I want to know what I need to get to be able to use my laptop on the road as we tour the country. Is there a product that will support this type of problem? Will my computer even work in Mexico if I plug into a phone line over there? Help--need help soonest.

Wireless connectivity is the same everywhere in the world. The biggest problem you are likely to run into in Mexico is finding a wireless signal to connect to. The better hotels should have internet connections, but Mexico is not "wired" like the USA is.

Your laptop should be able to connect to any unsecured wireless signal anywhere. I suggest you try taking it with you next time you go downtown in your area, and experiment with finding wireless signals. College campuses are a great place to find wireless, as well as having lots of students who are used to connecting to wireless all over town, who might be willing to help you connect.

The icon you need to use to find a wireless signal can be found in the little bar next to your digital clock, in the lower right corner of your screen.

SETTING UP A BROADBAND CONNECTION
First you need to decide what type of broadband and Internet service you require and these are -
1. DSL that uses your existing telephone line.
2. Cable that uses a cable service and can include a cable TV service.
3. A USB wireless adapter uses the same 3G mobile/cell phone network and can be separately or combine with your cell phone account. This type of Internet connection uses a wireless device shaped like an USB memory stick.
Note - Combined services generally offer discount pricing and may include a modem/wireless router.

If you use a wireless router with a DSL or Cable Internet service then your laptop/computer with a wireless card can then connect to the Internet. You can also connect to a free WiFi hot spots like McDonalds, Star Bucks, the Airport etc. using the wireless card in your laptop.
If you use the wireless 3G wireless broadband service, then you can access the Internet anywhere where your ISP has 3G wireless coverage. You need to check the service coverage area where you need Internet service.
Once you decide what type of broadband your require, then you need to check with the various Internet Service providers to see if they can offer and the cost of the various plans.
Note the download limits and the associated additional costs if you exceed the monthly download limits. Once you sign up with a Internet Service provider, their documentation will include setting up instructions and/or installation CD.

Contact AT&T or Verizon for 4G wireless service in Mexico. They will issue you a dongle to the USB port to pick-up the service that's within range.

How do I hook my wireless usb netopia chip in order to sign on the internet


You ned to contact an Internet Service Provider to determine if your USB wireless adapter is compatible with their service.
Read this info for an idea on how to connect to the Internet :-

There several ways to connect to the Internet.
1. You can use a cable or DSL modem and connect this modem to the laptop with a LAN cable.
2. You can use a wireless router with a cable or DSL modem and connect to the wireless router using a wireless card (a PCMCIA wireless card or the laptop may have a built-in wireless card). This wireless card can also be used in WiFi locations such as the airport, McDonalds and Starbucks etc.
3. You can use an USB G3 wireless adapter. This type of device uses the G3 mobile network and may not give you Internet coverage in some locations.
All these require an Internet Service Provider and the costs vary widely depending upon the various plans they offer. Check the ISP in your area and compare the plans and cost of their plans and pick the one that best suits your needs.

No internet connections found


First, you need to be sure that the wireless networking adapter is enabled.

  1. From the Start menu, click Control Panel.

  2. In Control Panel, click Network Connections.

  3. Check the status of Internet Connection and Local Area Connection that indicates WIRELESS (it's most likely a Broadcom product).
  4. If either item says disabled or not connected, right click and select ENABLE from the menu.
  5. Close all open dialog boxes and windows.
  6. Use the Windows XP Wireless Zero Configuration, located in the system tray at the bottom of your screen, to test the adapter.
  7. Double-click the icon with one monitor and 3 wave lines on the right side. Your network should be detected.
If that doesn't pan out, post back and I'll give you Plan B.

Are you trying to connect the laptop using wireless? If so, you probably don't have the wireless settings from your router setup on the laptop. If you have a Windows based computer, click START => RUN.., type CMD, then hit OK. A black DOS window will appear. Type IPCONFIG and hit ENTER. You should see something like this:

Connection-specific DNS Suffix . :
IP Address. . . . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.0.xxx
Subnet Mask . . . . . . . . . . . : 255.255.255.0
Default Gateway . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.0.1

Open your web browser and type in the address you see next to "Default Gateway" (in this example it's 192.168.0.1). This *should* be your router. Hit ENTER and you should connect to your router's web interface. From here you can find your wireless settings and match them on your laptop.


Laptops also usually have off/on switches for the wireless feature. Check to make sure you have the wireless card actually turned on. That is a simple mistake people make.


I hope this somehow helps.

Windows already has built in WiFi software.
