Re: trying to incert a wireless modem
There are several types of wireless modems available.
A PCMCIA wireless card that inserts into the laptop's PCMCIA slot.
A stand alone wireless modem that connects into the LAN port (10BaseT connector) with a network cable or a USB cable to the computer's USB port.
A USB wireless device (similar in size as a USB memory stick)that connects into the computer's USB port.

You need to connect your net book via a cable. The cable is called a cat5 cable and looks like a big phone jack connector. It is just like the one that hooks your computer to your wired network. The cable can be hooked to one of the outlets on your wired network. Then your netbook should detect your connection and hook up.
connect directly to your wireless router, hook the modem to the router WAN port. From the computer type http:\\192.168.1.1 and log into the router. First make sure you can get Internet on the laptop through the wired connection. Then setup wireless without encryption or WEP and see if you can attach to the device unsecured.If both of these work, set WEP up and make sure you use the key and not the passphrase to authenticate.
The first thing that you need tohave in order to get wireless internet is a wireless networking adapter.If you own a newer laptop, this is probably inside your computer as we speak. If you don't own a wireless carddon't panic. You can easily purchase oneseparately. They are relatively inexpensive. The best place to purchase a wirelesscard is eBay (opens new window). There are two important thing thingsto look for in your wireless card. 1.Make sure it is a 802.11g card. They have 802.11b, 802.11a, and several others.Having an 802.11g will enable you to connect at much faster speeds and fromfarther away. 2.Purchase a wireless card that connects in the PCMCIA slot. The next thing you are going to wantto get is high speed internet. It is possible to have wireless internet withdial-up, but it will be so slow it simply isn't worth it. In order to have high speedinternet, you are going to need a cableor dsl modem depending on what internet you have. This type of modemwill not be found in your laptop. There are many different types andbrands of modems out there. I have had no problems or complaints with the Motorola Surfboard. It's easyto set up and has lasted a long time now. Other well known modems are Linksys and Netgear. You can get cable/dsl modems muchcheaper on eBay. But make sure that all of the equipment comes in the box.Either order one that says new or contact the seller and ask them if all of thewires and cables are included. The next thing on how to set upwireless internet is getting a wirelessrouter (opens new window). This is the piece of equipment thatmakes things wireless. You can have high speed internet without a router. Butto be able to connect multiple computers and have your laptop have a wirelessconnection you are going to have to purchase a router.
Fortunately, routers are gettingcheaper and cheaper by the day now. You can certainly find a nice wireless router on eBay forunder $30. Similar to the wireless card, makesure you get a router that is 802.11g. This will allow you to connect fasterand from farther away. Also, try to look for a routerthat has a connection of at least 54 Mbps. Ifseveral people will be using the internet at one time you may consider gettinga router even faster then that. Once you have all of the necessaryequipment, it's time to hook everything up. It's hard to explain precisely howto do this because each modem and router may need to be hooked up differently. But the main steps on how to set upwireless internet are this... 1.Hook up wherever your internet is coming from to your modem. Your internetsource will vary depending on whether you have Cable or DSL. 2.Connect your modem to your router. This is the essential part of makingwireless possible. 3. Turn on whatever computer you havethat has a wireless card and enjoy your wireless internet experience!
If your router was working before, and suddenly stopped working, then you probably need to reset it.
Unplug the router from power, also unplug all network cables from it.
Wait about 30 seconds.
Plug power back in, followed by network cables.
Wait some more seconds while the router restarts.
Only the Power light and the Status light should be solid. All others in use must be blinking, which means they are in use.
Try connecting to the internet with cable first, then try wireless.
It should work.

what do you mean by hook it up? Do you mean internet service?
All new laptops have Wi-Fi capabilities, but you must be in range of a free service. In order to get dedicated service, you will need to either purchase an aircard from a provider such as sprint,verizon,AT&T, or get hooked up through your local phone company(DSL), or cable service- they will provide you with the modem.
are you using wifi connection, I mean wireless connection or you're hooking up to a LAN network or through a modem connection?
If all this connection wouldn't worked out anymore, try reinstalling your Operating System!
You don't use a modem to connect with a wireless router. Connect an ethernet cable between the laptop and the router to ensure that both are working. If this gives you an internet connection then the commonest problem is an incorrect wireless key. Reset the key on the router then cut and paste it into the wireless network setup in the Control Panel. Wireless drivers are frequently updated and you should check for a newer driver.
