    Oh, I'm so sorry.... A 2Wire doesn't connect to laptops through the modem port. :-p

    What type of modem is it?

    Are you certain that you're using NetZero? Because that modem is designed for DSL, specifically for use with AT&T DSL services.

    First try reseting the modem and router (in other words unplugg and then plug back in). Also are you using dialup? If you are using dialup than you are pretty much stuck.

Well that card you have which you got along with your computer is a wireless adaptor, not a router which would come with it's utility, try that utility to connect your wireless, for any further clarification contact me with the model name and no. of your adaptor and information about your netgear router and modem as well.

Win 7 install prob


Hi, I suggest to plug in the Internet LAN cable, Boot the Windows Disk setup. When installing, the missing Drivers for your Hard disk will be detected and installed automatically using the Internet.

If that wont help, I suggest you use another CD / DVD that has a recent version of the Windows you want to Install.

Good luck

You need to configure the router, both the "wired" and the "wireless" interfaces inside of it.
For the wireless interface:
* pick an SSID ('SandyM')
* pick an encryption-level -- use 'WPA', because 'WEP' is too easy to "hack"
* pick a password for your network.

No, it's probably because you have setup a wireless home network with security in place.

Go through the settings on your husband's notebook settings for your home network and set your Dell up the same way. You will need to know the SSID for the wireless network, security type and key to set it up.

BELT FALLS OFF


Without the model number, I can't supply the belt number or size. These belts do stretch over time. If we can find the correct one, the belt shouldn't be more than $8-$10. If you aren't far from Lancaster, there is a flea market there that has a repair booth. You can try there as well.
