Cannot connect thru the ethernet cable. Can only connect wireless

I have no problem using wireless when I am at my home in Mexico,but the costs to use wireless where we live in Tucson are very high. I can not get on line connecting thru the eithernet cable.

I am not very computer knowledgeable and every tech. that I speak to supplies me with a different answer.One said burned out hard drive,another said burned out eithernet card. Any idea what I can do so that I can connect thru the eithernet?

    You need to supply me more information.

    Your HP laptop has a built-in network card and provided the network card driver is installed you can connect to any network device using a network cable.

    In Tucson where you use the wireless connection, do you connect to a wireless router in your premises or do you connect to a wireless Internet Service Provider or at an Internet cafe?

    If you are connecting to the ISP in Tuscon using a network cable the costs will be the same regardless whether you are using wireless or network cable.



    In Tucson how do you intend to connect to the Internet, do you want to use a cable or a DSL modem and if so have you arranged for an Internet Service Provider?



    Having an Internet Service Provider in both Mexico and Tuscon you will be incuring costs from both Internet Service Providers.

How do I connect my pc to my router? There is no ether port in the back. Can it be done thru the sub?


There are more ways how to connect PC to router in your case.
My assumption is that your PC has no Ethernet port.

  1. Use wireless connection. Activate Wi-Fi card in your PC and connect it to router by wireless network.
  2. In case you do not have wireless router or you prefer cable link you can buy an USB Ethernet adapter.
Some examples:

Connecting Two Computers Directly With Cable for a home network


The simplest and easy way to start a home network 


The simplest kind and easy to maintain of home network contains exactly two computers. You can use this kind of network to share files, a printer or another peripheral device, and even an Internet connection. To connect two computers for sharing these and other network resources, consider the options described below.
Connecting Two Computers Directly With Cable

The traditional method to network two computers involves making a dedicated link by plugging one cable into the two systems. Several alternatives exist for networking two computers in this manner: Ethernet crossover cable
Null modem serial cable or parallel peripheral cable
Special-purpose USB cables
Ethernet crossover cable
Null modem serial cable or parallel peripheral cable
Special-purpose USB cables
Ethernet - Of the above choices, the Ethernet method is preferred as it supports a reliable, high-speed connection with minimal configuration required. Additionally, Ethernet technology offers the most general-purpose solution, allowing networks with more than two computers to be built fairly easily later. If one of your computers possesses an Ethernet adapter but the other has USB, an Ethernet crossover cable can still be used by first plugging a USB-to-Ethernet converter unit into the computer's USB port.

Ethernet crossover cables

Serial and parallel - This type of cabling, called Direct Cable Connection (DCC) when using Microsoft Windows, offers lower performance but offers the same basic functionality as Ethernet cables. You may prefer this option if you have such cables readily available and network speed is not a concern. Serial and parallel cables are never used to network more than two computers.

USB - Ordinary USB cables must not be used to connect two computers directly to each other. Attempting to do so can electrically damage the computers! However, special USB cables designed for direct connection exist that can be used safely. You may prefer this option over others if your computers lack functional Ethernet network adapters.

To make dedicated connections with Ethernet, USB, serial or parallel cables requires
each computer have a functioning network interface with an external jack for the cable, and
the network settings on each computer appropriately configured
One phone line or power cord cannot be used to directly connect two computers to each other for networking.

Connecting Two Computers with Cable through Central Infrastructure
Rather than cable two computers directly, the computers may instead be joined indirectly through a central network fixture. This method requires two network cables, one connecting each computer to the fixture. Several types of fixtures exist for home networking: Ethernet hubs, switches, and routers 
USB hubs
Phoneline and powerline wall outlets
Ethernet hubs, switches, and routers
USB hubs
Phoneline and powerline wall outlets

Implementing this method often entails additional up-front cost to purchase more cables and network infrastructure. However, it's a general-purpose solution accommodating any reasonable number of devices (e.g, ten or more). You will likely prefer this approach if you intend to expand your network in the future.

Most cabled networks utilize Ethernet technology. Alternatively, USB hubs can be employed, while powerline and phoneline home networks each offer their own unique form of central infrastructure. The traditional Ethernet solutions are generally very reliable and offer high performance.
Connecting Two Computers Wirelessly
In recent years, wireless solutions have enjoyed increasing popularity for home networking. As with cabled solutions, several different wireless technologies exist to support basic two computer networks: Wi-Fi
Bluetooth
infrared
Wi-Fi
Bluetooth
infrared
Wi-Fi connections can reach a greater distance than the wireless alternatives listed above. Many newer computers, especially laptops, now contain built-in Wi-Fi capability, making it the preferred choice in most situations. Wi-Fi can be used either with or without a network fixture. With two computers, Wi-Fi networking minus a fixture (also called ad-hoc mode) is especially simple to set up. How To - Set Up an Ad Hoc WiFi Network

How To - Set Up an Ad Hoc WiFi Network

Bluetooth technology supports reasonably high-speed wireless connections between two computers without the need for a network fixture. Bluetooth is more commonly used when networking a computer with a consumer handheld device like a cell phone. Most desktop and older computers do not possess Bluetooth capability. Bluetooth works best if both devices are in the same room in close proximity to each other. Consider Bluetooth if you have interest in networking with hand held devices and your computers lack Wi-Fi capability. 

Infrared networking existed on laptops years before either Wi-Fi or Bluetooth technologies became popular. Infrared connections only work between two computers, do not require a fixture, and are reasonably fast. Being very simple to set up and use, consider infrared if your computers support it and you lack the desire to invest effort in Wi-Fi or Bluetooth.

If you find mention of an alternative wireless technology called Home RF, you can safely ignore it. Home RF technology became obsolete several years ago and is not a practical option for home networking.

Try it is the best home network option.

Can I disable wireless and connect with ethernet cord and modem, for work do not want remove wireless cord, in the day want to be able to use my wireless.


Are you talking about direct-connecting via Ethernet to a cable or DSL modem? You shouldn't have to disable wireless to do that. If the cable modem has an open Ethernet port, you should be able to run a straight-thru Ethernet Cat-5 cable between that port and the Ethernet port on your laptop. The laptop should recognize that it is connected to the modem through the direct connection. Check the manual for the cable modem or information supplied by your ISP for connection details. You may have to do some setup on the modem to get an Internet connection, like having your ISP 'activate' the modem. Just be sure your Ethernet cable is a straight-thru, standard Ethernet cable, and not a 'cross-over' cable such as is used to transfer data between two computers.

I have a belkin wireless connected to a cable router and I want to get the signal to a home theater using an ethernet cable connectect to another wireless router and can't connect


The Ethernet should plug into the cable router if there is more than one port.

If not plug it into the LAN port on the wireless router.

Do not try and connect it to another wireless router as it won't work.

There should be only one route to the internet, not two.

I need to connect a D-Link router to my cable modem so that I can use my laptop anywhere in my home


Cable-modem <-- Ethernet cable --> WAN (or "Internet") port on the router

LAN port on router <-- Ethernet cable --> network-port on your laptop

Then, access the "built-in" web-server on the router,
and run the "Wireless Networking Setup" wizard:
* to set an SSID ("network-name")
* an encryption-level (Hint: choose 'wpa')
* a password for your wireless network

Then, disconnect the Ethernet cable from your computer,
and then "wireless available wireless networks".
Select your newly-created network, and connect to it.

Iam trying to set up a photosmart D7360 to work in my home for all PCs so I'd like to set it up wireless. I'm currently using a router. How do I start? I have a brand ne HP lap top and the photosmart is in...


HP Photosmart D7360 is Not completely Wireless Capable, However if you want to make it Wireless, You will have to use HP bt450 Bluetooth Wireless.

However since this printer has Ethernet Port, you can still make this printer wireless.

You will have to connect this printer thru Ethernet cable ( network cable ) to Router ( this is called wired networking )

Once you have connected the printer to Router, insert the disk in CD Drive and start the installation process, It will prompt you to choose the type of Connection, Choose Wired/Wireless Network and continue with further installation to complete.

How this works,
With any PC that is connected Wireless to Router, You will be able to print wireless from the PC to Printer.

Trouble connecting netgear wireless router to rca modem DCM425


First try connection the Yellow ethernet cable from the rca modem to your computer's network connection. If you get a connection this way, then your modem will work with a ethernet cable. If not, then call Comcast for help. The modem ethernet out to computer port must be connected to the wan line of the router. Then you can connect an ethernet cable from your computer network connection to one of the 4 ports of the router. For wireless connections you must set up the router and wireless adaptor with the same settings to connect. Follow the routers directions.
Good Luck

http://lifehacker.com/software/wifi/geek-to-live-set-up-a-home-wireless-network-162754.php

there is no "earthnet" connection. it is an ethernet connection. it looks like a phone cable but has larger ends than a phone connector. the router is connected to the computer via an ethernet cable if it needs to be hardwired to a ethernet port or internal ethernet card. a wireless connection only needs to be an add-on internal card w/antenna or a usb connector hub (it looks like a usb flash memory stick)

here is how it's done. netgear has the same type setup.

HELP PLEASE ASAP


OK well I think it is better to set it up like this... Connect the Modem to the Phone Line, Connect the Modem to the Router with an Ethernet Cable, Use a CABLE connection from the Main PC to the Router. (Ya gonna ditch the USB WiFi) Set that Main PC connection up to connect to the internet from the Main PC, thru Router thru Modem.... Then from Slave, install the USB adapter in this PC, and use this to connect DIRECTLY to the WiFi Router... and thus to the internet. This way will give the best transfer rates, and reliability
