If you have a router on your broadband, you need a RJ45 network cable - right next to the modem port on your laptop is a network port - this will use the correct cables you need to connect to your router.

If you don't have a router but only a broadband modem, just connect it to the USB port on your laptop, install the software and you should be good to go.

How do you connect to the internet on this type of computer?


This is an old baby... ripe for a museum. You can connect with the internal modem using dial-up. You could also attach an external modem or an external Ethernet adapter.

Wifi problem, please help me and my daughter.


Hello Lan, the best way to connect to your network would be using WZC utility right in windows, to make sure this is turned on follow the link below http://tech.ifelix.net/2007.html
After its turned on go Start>Control Panel>Network and Internet>Network and Sharing Center. After entering here choose your network, if your modem has a security key (WPA, WEP, ETC..) make sure to enter that correctly. If all is well it should connect without a problem.
Hope this helps, if this doesnt work comment and i will give further assistance

Compaq armada v300 will not power up. power cable ok, no battery


Hi

Thank you for your query

If the power cable is ok and still there is no power, there is a hardware fault with the motherboard or the DC jack

I would recommned that the laptop be booked in for repair at a reputable PC shop

If this has been useful please leave postive feedback/vote/testimonial - Thank You Again

Daughter gave me her computer. she had broadband, I have dial-up, can't get on-line.... no modem????


Hi

A lot of computers these days are supplied with no modem due to the popularity of Broadband.

To check if you have a modem on that computer do the following

Right click on "My Computer". Click "Properties". Select the "Hardware" Tab on the top. Then click "Device Manager". Go down the list until you see "Modems" and click the plus sign to expand it. If you see anything listed here you have a telephone modem installed.

If you want to stay on dial up and there is no modem in the list the only thing you can do is have one installed to the computer. However I cannot recommend this course of action. Dial up is a completely outdated and extremely expensive way of using the internet as you are charged each time the modem connects (like a telephone call). Even if you have a bundle of modem minutes from your provider it is still expensive and slow!!

Contact your provider and see if you can get Broadband in your area. You will not regret it - I guarantee you!

Thanks for using FixYa and please do rate my answer.
