Question about Dell XPS M1530 Notebook

1 Answer

Create a wireless network signal using a computer to router.

Right now my job has provided me with an air card (Verizon) for my laptop allowing me to access the internet. Because of this I do not want to waste money by purchasing internet seeing as though it is paid for by the company. The problem I am having is that I only have 1 air card (my job will only provide 1) and there are many times when I am on the internet and my girlfriend wants to get on using her computer and we would like a wireless signal so that we can use our ipods to get online as well. Right now we can only have 1 computer connected to the internet at a time cause the air card has to be connected to the computer in which we want to use. I am wondering if I can connect to my wireless router in some way so that both computers can connect at the same time. My router does not have a USB imput at all and the only way I could see this working is if I had the air card connected to my laptop and if I use an ethernet cable to connect my laptop to the router. I am just not sure if this is possible and if so how to do it exactly. Any suggestions?

The devices appear to be in functioning order. However, the connection network requires another computer on which signals are directed towards. The computer server on which network resources are acquirable is unavailable. For example, your devices can provide sevices to another computer if any were avialble. Usually an internet provider would allow acess to several computer with subscription. Consult an internet service provider, examples, at & t, T- mobile, Verizon, boost mobile, or consult any available at your local area. www.at&t.com, www.t-mobile.com, www.verizon.com, Goodluck

What is the Operating system on the laptop ?
If it is XP then in the bottom right hand corner you will find Wireless network connection ( looks like 1 computer monitor). Use that icon to connect to the wireless network.
If it is windows Vista, then in the bottom right hand corner you will find 2 computer monitor icon. Use that icon to connect to the wireless network.
If it is Windows 98/ME/2000 then use the adapter utility to connect to the wireless network.
For MAC you will see the AIRPORT icon at the top.

Check the wireless settings of the router first . Make sure that you have all the wireless settings of the router. If you are not sure about the settings, then open the router set up and check the settings.

Verizon needs to apply a firmware update for the Atheros wireless adapter in your notebook. I work for Acer and I end up having to tell people this all day long. If you take this to a wireless router that is not from verizon you will have no problems with your connection. Maybe if enough Fios customers complain they will provide a firmware update for this.

Speedstream 6300 network key



Wireless security is commonly performed by encryption using wep setting a network key. That key is to be shared by both the router and the network card to allow encrypted communications. If appears you have not provided the network key that was configured into wireless router to the wireless adapter card to allow them to exchange encrypted communications. The preferable solution would be to get the active network from the router and provide in to the wireless adapter in the prompt / request you were presented. This will protect you wireless network from access by those you have not shared the key with.
