    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)

How to make my laptop as a wifi device so that i can use internet on my mobile by turning on wifi in it??


You can't use your laptop as a wireless router.
If you have a wireless router and it is connected to the DSLor cable modem then -To connect to your wireless router, the router needsits wireless settings to be configured with the SSID, encryption key etc., alsothe wireless cards and wireless adapters in all the laptops/computers needs tobe configured with these router's wireless settings. Then the laptops/desktopcomputers can communicate with your wireless router and access the Internet via the DSLor cable modem.

How do i connect a wifi router to the dsl of my pc?


Your internet provider should have provided you with a modem (dsl modem) that will have a ethernet port which can be connected to a computer directly or a router to make internet available to multiple computers. Router usually comes with five ports one of them is WAN port (Wide Area Network) and other four are LAN ports (Local Area Network) The dsl modem should be connected to WAN port of your router and the LAN ports are use to connect to any computer with an ethernet cable. If the router has wireless capability you can use your laptop or smartphone to access internet wirelessly!

Asus PC 900 HD wifi connection failed?


check if the build in wifi finds your router/the home-WAN u already use(??)

turn over router, write down the WPA-nr (16 digits)

use logon program-tool provided with router or laptop,

if working, it should at least display some of the wifi-nets/hot-spots/WANs available at ur place,

then log onto your one, enter wpa-key(is password and for encrypting your connection)

choose defining ip-config using DHCP-standard/automatic ip-adressing,

a network-connection symbol may now pop up at lower right on the task bar :

and retry surfing.


good luck

You just buy a laptop with built wireless card or built in WIFI capability since you will buy a wireless router, that built in modem that you are saying is a modem use for dial up and you do not need that because I believe you have a broadband connection like cable or DSL internet...
