If you do not already have a wifi router you will need to purchase one, install it and connect your Directv receiver to it. If you do have already, you will have to go through the settings on your Directv receiver to setup a wireless connection.

Can I connect my Pocket Wi-Fi to a Router with USB Port so that I can share my internet connection to my other computers.


Normally any new router with a USB port is only for USB memory sticks to share file across the network. Not for feeding internet into the unit (router).
It should be possible if you had a wifi "repeater" with Ethernet outlets, if what you are trying to do is hard wire the other computers.
The pocket wifi would wifi to the repeater, then the repeater would feed the Ethernet to the computers.

It says that I have internet but cant get on the internet


Do you try to connect to the Internet when at home or away from home ? At home, you need to have a wireless (WiFi) network to connect your tablet to and then access the Internet from your tablet. Away from home you need to find an OPEN WiFi network (usually in public places such as coffee shops, bookstores, etc) to connect to. Or you can get an USB mobile/cellular modem from your cellular provider to attach to the USB port on your tablet and access the Internet at home and/or away from home (this option will cost you money). You also need to install on your tablet apps that will access the Internet (browsers, Pandora, Youtube, etc.).

I am trying to connect to my virgin mobile internet via the virgin mobile flash drive, the netbook isn't even picking up that I have the flash drive plugged into the computer.


If this is a Sylvania Netbook running Win CE 6 it is possible that the operating system simply doesn't have a driver for Virgin Mobile cellphone.

The only way I have been able to connect to the internet is via Wifi or a LAN cable plugged into the back. I doubt you will get any other method to work.

Please note the Wifi can be via a Wifi access point on your cellphone, a portable, mobile hotspot that connects via a USB modem or any other functional Wifi access point.

Find another computer with a USB port and Internet access.
Find a USB memory-stick.
Access the manufacturer's web-site: http://www.acer.com
and search under "support" for "Aspire" and "6390".
Download the device-driver for the wireless adapter to the memory-stick (or burn to a CD-R or CD-RW).
Move the memory-stick (or "burnt" disk) to your Acer computer, and install from there.
Voila! Internet access.

Can I use a wireless router with motorola phone tools. What I want to do is to connect phone tools on a desktop and then add a wireless router (USB) so I can get wireless internet on my laptop.


Your question is somewhat confusing.

For clarification, there are two questions that you could be asking.

The first question would be: Can your phone be 'Tethered' to your laptop with either a Data Cable or Bluetooth to have internet on your laptop by using your phone as a modem? (No wireless router is needed to do this.)

The second question would be, that you have an internet connection on your desktop computer and want to use a wireless router to have internet on your laptop via WiFi. (In this case, your cell phone would not be needed.)

If the first question is what you are asking, to use your cell phone as a modem to provide internet access to your laptop - then the answer is, Yes. This is what you will need:

1) You'll need a Data Plan added to your regular cell phone service account.

2) To tether your laptop to your phone, your laptop will need to have either Bluetooth installed or you will need a USB Data cable.

Tip: If your laptop does not have Bluetooth installed, you can purchase any USB Bluetooth Doggle (on eBay for a couple of dollars) and plug it into one of the USB ports on your computer. Once plugged in, the doggle will automatically download the Bluetooth drivers to your laptop. Otherwise, you can use a USB Data cable to tether your phone to your laptop.

Note: Depending on the model number of your Motorola phone you may have to download the Data Cable Drivers onto your laptop.

If your phone is not one of the following phones then you can use Motorola Phone Tools. (Motorola OS, Motorola Linux OS, Motorola iDEN, Motorola Symbian/UIQ, Motorola Windows Mobile and Motorola i-mode Handsets. )

If you need the Motorola Phone tools (if your Motorola Phone Model was NOT one of the models I listed above)
Just click here::
http://bit.ly/1TN7A6

If your phone model is a (Motorola OS, Motorola Linux OS, Motorola iDEN, Motorola Symbian/UIQ, Motorola Windows Mobile or Motorola i-mode Handsets), you'll need to download the drivers for the Data Cable and install them on your laptop.
Click here:
Since you did not include which cellular provider you use, I cannot provide you with the information to manually set up your cellular internet connection.

Now, if the second question is the one you are asking, that you have internet on your desktop and want to use a wireless router to get internet on your laptop, here's what you'll need:

1) Connect a wireless router to your desktop.
2) Your laptop should have a small WiFi switch or button on the front or side of your laptop. This will need to be turned 'ON". (See your owners manual for your laptop to do this.)

If your laptop has WiFi installed, on your laptop go to START > (Look on the right side of the menu box and click on: 'Connect to' -- If you don't see, 'Connect to' in the menu you'll have to purchase a USB WiFi adapter. A good one is a D-Link DWL-G132 and can be purchased on eBay for about $10. Install the drivers for it first before plugging it in to your computer.
Click here to download the DWL-G132 drivers:
ftp://ftp.dlink.com/Wireless/dwlg132/Driver/dwlG132_drivers_130.zip

Once you download the drivers and plug in the DWL-G132 into one of your laptop's USB ports then click, START > Connect to > and select your wireless router.
