    How do you connect to the internet from your PC now? USB connection or Network Cable (Cat5/RJ45)?


    Different things you will need to buy according to what you currently have. And do you want to use wireless connection at home for the laptop?

You'll need a wireless router of some sorts. Manufactures are negligible but stick with you're more well known names: Belkin, DLink, Linksys, and Netgear. Also, if you are planning to go wireless, go with a "Wireless N" type of router as that will provide the strongest signal source for you to use your laptop in and just outside the house.

Don't forget to password protect your wireless signal so no one can leech off of your router. (this should be included in the manual you get)

I have a laptop OS win7. I hav internet over LAN port. My laptop has wifi. How can i share my internet with laptop wifi. i hav a mobile which has wifi. My question is how can i share my internet through...


It sounds to me like you only have a cable/adsl modem bringing in your internet connection. To share your internet with other wifi devices you will need to buy a Wireless router. Be aware you can buy adsl and cable routers depending on what your broadband provider has given you. Take these details into a computer shop who will advise you of the right type of router to buy. Dont buy cheap, go for something like a netgear router.

No internet on PC when cables going through router


Hello there,

You have to start from the beginning and my solution would be:

1) Remove any connections(also don't forget to turn of wifi on your laptop) to router and except the power cord. With the unit powered ON locate the reset pinhole on the back of router.

2) Press and hold reset button for at least 15 secs. then release, wait for 20-30 secs. before the router can completely rebooted.

3) Configure your Computer IP address to “Obtain an IP address automatically” .

4) Connect internet cable to router on port labeled "WAN". Connect PC to any LAN ports available.

5) Now lets configure wireless router. Open any browser you have (IE, Firefox, Chrome, Safari, etc.). On the address bar type: "192.168.1.1" (without quotes). Default username: admin ; default password: admin click "OK".

6) Go through "SETUP WIZARD" until you reach the "Setup WAN Interface" page. On "WAN Access Type:" select "DHCP" then click next.

7) You may configure your "Basic Wireless Settings" to Public or Private until finished configuring.

8) On "Operation Mode" be sure you operate on "Gateway" mode.

That's it! Hope this helps.

Bought a toshiba satel laptop and want to router it to dell dimen


You don't need a router for the laptop it has a wireless card in it already, buy a router for your home PC and I would buy a linksys with cap 5 network cables and wireless connections so you can use the printer off of the home computer PC. If you have high speed Internet you can request for a router for free with a wireless and cap 5-cable capacity.

I have a broadband internet connection at home which had a modem and only one LAN cable. Now I have 2 laptop's one with Microsoft XP and other MS-Vista. Whenever I try to connect internet the one with XP...


if you had say one desktop and one laptop I would say to buy another LAN card for the desktop and enable internet connection sharing on it for the other computer but with two laptops that might not be possible and you will need a router.
But routers are pretty cheap nowadays and you can probably find a basic 4 port router on eBay for around $20 (you don’t really need to spend the extra money on a wireless one unless of course both laptops have wireless connections then you might find that a wireless router to be pretty useful.)
But to answer your question YES you need a router since a router will take your IP address and split it up into multiple internal IP addresses and allow more that one connection to the internet that will appear as one connection to your ISP

Need help with best connection type for college student in dorm


The enhaced version just give more range of signal over the normal dynex, regarding the internet provider it depends because sometimes you'll need a password and user to connect to the wireless signal. The dynex is used to connect from a cable signal (RJ-45)internet and then it will transfer the connection to wireless so it can be use from any laptop with wireless connection. So for example you DSL internet connection is a cable (RJ-45) then you connect that cable to the dynex router, then the router will automatically transmit the signal to wireless so any nearby pc can connect to it. If the laptop doesn't have wireless, then you'll have to buy a card to be able to connect to wireless signal or you could by also a (RJ-45 straight-through cable Cat 5e) to connect from one of the ports from the DYNEX to the laptop. Hope it helps.

Laptops not able to connect


Hi, Run a command window (Start, Run, type "cmd" without the quotes, Type "ping 192.168.0.1, it should answer back> Reply from 192.....TTL=xx, if yes, then you are connected to the router; If no, type "ipconfig /all" to check your IP settings which should match your router's DHCP assigned numbers, others you can try are /flushdns, /release, /renew/ Type "ping 209.131.36.158, it should answer back> Reply from 209.....TTL=xx, if yes then you are connected to the router and have access to internet; If no, and yes to 192..., your router is not granting you internet access or the router itself does not have internet access. Review what corrective measure/steps you have taken earlier that could have affected your internet access. Make sure that your Default Gateway is the IP add of your router. Post back should you need additional information. Good luck and kind regards.
