Lighting hit my gateway computer, now cant get on line


It's a wonder it works at all, you do not have a surge protector? You may have fried the ethernet card. I suppose you could get a wireless access point and a wireless card or wireless USB device for the computer. Are you sure thats all you lost?

Does my gateway pc desktop model GM5472 come with a wireless card?


No it only comes with a wired lan (ethernet) car built in. If you want to you can easily add a wireless card to this unit. You have several options such as one of those USB wifi devices to a proper plug in card.

My Gateway 507GR PC desktop will not connect to internet


Turn off (unplug if necessary) your modem, router, and PC. Then power on the modem, wait a minute and then power on the router, then power on your PC, this should solve your issue if you have service.

Belkin N Modem Router If main PC which is ethernet wired to the modem router is swtiched off, laptops cannot access the internet. Does this mean that the PC to which the modem router is connected has to...


it will as long as the modem/router is connected to a phone line, instead of the pc, the only cable connected to the pc should be a ethernet cable; or you have the pc networking set that it connects via another pc instead of through a gateway, re run the wireless network wizard.

Wireless connection problem, I have a gateway T1631 laptop. I cant see any network within the range even though I place d next to the router, but I can connect to the internet through the ethernet drive.


I have seen this issue alot of times. Please make sure you wireless card is turned on. Sometimes the switch is on the front or the sides or you may have to push a function button + a wireless button. Take a look at you owners manual to be sure

My sbc yahoo dsl installer has a crack can I install any other way.


Yes, you can. The setup I have seen most often uses what they call a "2Wire HomePortal".

Set the hardware up and make all the connections as instructed in the setup materials from SBC Yahoo (It's really quite simple: the phone line from the jack with the filter provided plugs in the phone line jack on the "Home Portal"--a simple router often called a DSL "modem"--and the ethernet cable into the other port on the "HomePortal" and into the RJ-45 jack on a computer)

Go to https://sbcreg.sbcglobal.net in the web browser of your choice. Note: it is an httpS address. The "s" is important.

If the web page comes up, simply follow the instructions on the page to establish an account.

If you don't get a registration page, try http://support.sbcglobal.net/register and follow the prompts.

NOTE: make sure the "HomePortal" router is easily acessible, because you will need its serial number duringh the process. The process MAY also establish a "temporary" login that you will have to replace with a permanent one.

Gateway GM 5084 Ethernet


Are the drivers installed? Look in your device manager for the drivers. You might need a new Ethernet card. Also check in the BIOS to see if it is turned on. Try hitting the delete key or one of the F keys when it starts to get to the BIOS.

I cannot get my wireless ethernet client to coonect with my 2 wire gateway router


Need more details.
Generally, first you need to turn on the wireless option in the gateway. Go to \\home or \home (depending on browser). Then go the Network option (no the broadband option), click of wireless settings, and make sure you have this enabled. That should atleast give you the basics. Anything further, please see the 2wire website and get the manual.
