This modem that you are using is it a Cable or DSL modem. If so is it a combination modem and router? If not then you have to purchase a router so that you can connect your computer and Wii at the same time.

I just rebooted my toshiba laptop and when i connect to the wireless router it says local only however when put the wire in from the moderm it conects fine i neeed help straight away thanks


Try unplugging both the router and the modem for 2 minutes, then plug them back in. Wait for another 2 minutes and try to reconnect to your wireless network. This usually resolves the problem 99% of the time.
While you wait check all the connections to your router and modem.

I have internet and my wii will not connect to it. I'm try to get netflix

Do you have a wireless setup at home? If you do then you have to setup the Wii to pickup your wireless network for you to get it to work. If you don't have wireless network then you can hardwire the wii from the modem, or you can buy a wireless router to setup a wireless network.

My acer aspire 5336-2524 is not able to pick up internet explorer, thru wii fii or thru modem. laptop was purchased 1/12/2011 was working fine then all of a sudden no internet access


Try to unplug power on back of router and modem. Wait 20 seconds and plug your MODEM FIRST

Wait 1 minute to make sure it gets an ip address.

Then put power back on your router. Wait about 1 min. again and try accessing internet.

If it does not work. Restart your computer after doing the above steps.

Hope this helps!

Cant hook up cable internet

You need to contact your isp, they would be able to send test signals to your modem and make sure your modem is functioning properly, then they could help you troubleshoot.

Yes you can. There would be no problem with that. You just need to change some settings depending on the wireless modem. Although most likely they could work together without the need for changes.
