What OS do you have? You need to go into control Panel, double click 'system" and look at hardware. In win 2000 and up, you;re looking for device manager. Look at network adaptors and that will tell you if you have a wireless adaptor built in. If not, you need a wirelss PC Card or a wireless USB adaptor.

Hi there.
If the laptop has wireless functionality the best way to check is to hold down the Fn key and press the F2 key.
You will also need a wireless router so you can connect wirelessly


Thanks for choosing FixYa!!

    That depends.
    Is your ISP (internet service provider) cable or ADSL (telephone)?

NO laptop has WIRELESS MODEM or ROUTER.

But yeah, there is always a WIRELESS LAN card in each laptop so that you can get connected to any Wireless Access Point like Routers,Bridges or Switches.

Your OS wizard will help you to configure all wireless settings.

Rate the solution if it was helpful to you...

No interent connection


Your Linksys wireless router needs to be connected to a DSL or cable modem which needs to configured with the settings that your Internet Service Provider gave you.
To test your Internet connection connect a LAN cable fron your conputer to the DSL/cable modem. If you cannot connect to the Internet using this methos, you need to contact your ISP and the can check the connection to your DSL/cable modem.

Hi Support team, I use Modem Motorola SB100 with Linksys WAP54G, and DLink Wireless G DWA USB Adapter to connect to Linksys WAP from my PCDesktop. Connection from the PC to Linksys is ok but can't...


peter_picasa:

You cannot use a Wireless Access Point (WAP) to connect directly to your IPS's modem. A WAP does not provide the ability to share a single IP address on the internet like a router does.

Either return the WAP for a refund and buy a wireless router or buy an Ethernet wired-only router and plug the WAP into the LAN side of that router. You would then plug the WAN side of the Ethernet wired router into your modem.

Thanks for using FixYa.

Need to get wireless on my laptop,


No, the SB5100 is just a cable modem, not a wireless router. You will need to keep your sb5100 but you will need to purchase a wireless router if you want wireless on your laptop. If you can also plug your laptop into the sb5100 via an ethernet cable for your internet connection. Linksys and Belkin and others make wireless routers that you can use for your wireless connections.

You can get wireless internet as long as you connect to a wireless router/Access point. If you have Internet, you would need to get a wireless router in order to use your internet wirelessly.

Trying to hook up the internet


Your internet connection should plug into your modem, and the modem should plug into your router. Plug any computers you use directly into the router. If it's a wireless router, it's just a matter of going into the Wii and entering the settings for your wireless router.

Does this help?
