If your DSL modem does not have a phone port or if it has one but it's bigger it's not a phone port, it's called an Ethernet port. Most of the DSL modems/routers they have an Ethernet port. This is how it looks like click here. If this the port that you have on your modem, the cable that is also in the picture is what you should be using to get the laptop connected to the modem. The cable is called an Ethernet cable. And your laptop must also have this ethernet port.

If you have more question please let me know. Just reply to this post.

Maybe the laptop is configured by default to look for a wireless signal through its wifi drivers, or a different previously installed modem. Go to your Computer/Control Panel/Network Sharing Center and set up a new connection there so your computer knows what to do.

We bought the AT&T Motorola DSL Modem today, and we're trying to connect to wireless on a laptop and the connection isn't showing up. How do we fix this ?


  1. Ensure that your AT&T DSL self-installation kit is complete. At minimum, it should contain a DSL modem, an AC adapter, an Ethernet cable, a telephone cable, several telephone filters and an installation CD.
  2. Install the telephone filters on each telephone jack that you have a phone plugged into. Install a dual phone adapter on the jack closest to your computer if you have an answering or fax machine, telephone or analog modem in the same room. Then plug your telephone equipment into the filters. Connect the telephone cable that was provided with your installation kit into an unfiltered telephone jack.
  3. Insert the installation CD into your CD-ROM drive. If the installation program does not start automatically, click Start > Run > and browse to the CD-ROM drive directory to find the installation file.
  4. Connect the telephone cable that is attached to the unfiltered wall jack to the back of the DSL modem. Connect the Ethernet cable to the back of the modem and to the Ethernet network interface card port on the back of your computer. Connect the AC adapter to the back of the modem and plug it into an electrical outlet. Power the modem on.
  5. Check the modem lights. There should be at least two lights lit. These will have labels such as "Power" and "Ethernet." However, these labels may differ depending on the model of modem you received in your installation kit.
  6. Complete the software installation. Enter your chosen username and password when prompted. Check your modem to see if the light labeled "DSL" or "Internet" is lit. Open a web browser window to see if your DSL service has been successfully installed.

Trying to connect internet and having problems.


Hi,
You have probably not installed the drivers required for the wireless adapter. Go to Dell website and search for your model's drivers. Look for wireless adapter drivers.
Please also check that your wireless adapter is on. Some laptops have a switch on the front side of the laptop to turn the wireless on or off. On other laptops is the combination of the Fn key and one of the F1-12 keys.

New computer running slow


if you are using dial up, you shud not have a modem.. modem is just for DSL connection
if you have a modem probably you are using a DSL connection

DEFINITION:
dial up - connection using a phone line with internet connection; cannot use fone while on internet

DSL/modem- connection using a modem plugged in with computer and fone line; able to use fone even when on internet.

I imagine you are connecting up to the DSL service for the first time with a phone company -- the DSL service has a help desk that can lead you through the process.

Whether or not this is the first connection, the computer being attached to the connection needs to assure it is configured to accept a dynamic IP address on the network adapter plugged into the device to enable it to work.

If this is the first time I have been through the setup process myself and the DSL provider's representative did a great job for me, If yours is the same as mine setting up to use a single machine requires activating your circuit and creating and storing the userid and password into the modem to allow you to use the DSL Service. There are some additional steps if you have a router and my provider's agent even walked me through configuring the router to attach to their equipment allowing me to attach multiple computers.

If your provider does not help you setup a router and you have one and want to after the first machine is setup provide me with the website for your service providers help/support site and the make and model of your router and I will try to provide you the steps to connect them.
