You should be able to go into Control Panel -> Network and Sharing Center and select Setup a connection or network to bring up a wizard that will guide you through the process of setting up your wireless connection.

To connect to your wireless router, the router's wireless settings needs to be configured and also the wireless cards in all the laptops and or computers needs to be configured with the router's wireless settings. Then the laptops and desktop computers can communicate with your wireless router.

My compaq presario V2000 will only connect to dialup


To connect to your DSL internet you will need an ethernet port or wireless card on your laptop. Your laptop should have an ethernet port, it will look like a phone jack but a little bigger. In the off chance that you don't have an ethernet port on your laptop you can also purchase an ethernet to usb adpater. You may have a wireless card installed on your laptop, but if not you can purchase a usb wireless adapter. To use your internet wirelessly in your home you'll also need a wireless router. All of these things can be purchased at your local electronics store (walmart, best buy, kmart, frys) and usually are fairly easy to setup with the included instructions.

Te first thing you should do is remove all power from the AT&T devices (modem, router, etc) for at least ten minutes. This will do several important things.
1. It will force your ISP (AT&T) to drop all connections to and from their router to the DSL modem.
2. It will force your ISP (AT&T) to re-establish the connection to the DSL modem.
3. It will force the DSL modem to clear all RAM and reload its default configuration when power is re-applied.
4. It will force the wireless router to clear all RAM and reload its configuration information when power is restored.
The 10 minutes is not arbitrary, some Motorola DSL modems supplied by AT&T have a specified 8 minute memory backup capability.

Adding wireless


for a dsl connection, what you need to do is check first the ip address of the router that you have or the mpdem that is given by your internet service provider. if it has an ip address of 192.168.1.X, then you need to change the ip address of the linksys router to 192.168.2.1 or 10.10.10.1. how to check the ip address? just connect your pc to the device and then open your command prompt, type "ipconfig" then click enter.. just look for the ip address.. also, if it doesn't work, then just set your modem to full bridge mode, your internet service provider will know about that.

Hooking up a lap top to a router


You didn't specify if he has DSL or Cable internet.

With DSL, keep in mind the software1.gif on the PC is what "dials out" to the ISP with your name / password, and you MUST set the name and password in the router. Otherwise, ONLY the computer that has the software installed (verizon, etc) will be able to connect.

If you're using a cable connection, you don't have to do this, however, most newer Linksys routers come with a 'setup' disk, which MUST be used regardless of connection type.
