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.

Just bought a used gateway laptop model#m320s3400335 and cannot get internet access through a wireless network or online at all.


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 wireless 3G network uses the mobile/cell phone network and can be separate or combine with your cell phone account. This type of Internet connection uses an USB 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 the DSL or Cable Internet service then your laptop 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.

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.
