Which OS do you have? XP, Vista, 7, etc. you must have a wireless adapter in your PC to use wireless and it must be enabled.
if not wireless, then you must have an ethernet slot with cable(CAT5) inserted from internet modem/router. if you have a laptop then you have wireless available. there is a key on keyboard to turn wireless on. you have to have your Network assigned to the wireless internet provider too. if you have cable(cat5) connected to a modem or router/modem connection, and you see an ethernet icon in your lower right corner window(looks like a little computer display), then you have an ethernet connection. if not then either the cable is bad or the modem/router is not producing a connection to pc. thats alot i know but i have little knowledge about your internet connection on your pc. you have not given that to me to use

I have just got in broadband but my xbox aint picking up my wireless signal upstairs,ive got the wireless adapter for the xbox,its picking up a few neighbours network connections,surely my xbox should be...


It is possible that the Xbox will be unable to pick up the wireless signal being transmitted by your gateway because the signal is too weak.

The connection speed of your internet has nothing to do with the strength of the signal. The best way to test this would be to try to connect to your wireless internet on a laptop while sitting near the xbox. If you cannot, you will know that the signal isn't powerful enough to reach that location.

There are three common options to amplifying your signal if necessary.

1) Purchase a High-gain antenna for your wireless gateway
2) Purchase a wireless repeater
3) Purchase a new router/gateway with a longer range capability. A "Wireless N" enabled router would be optimal for this application.

I have a Belkin wireless G router- 2.4Ghz-802.11g I have had for years. A few days ago it stopped connecting to the internet. I can connect my modem directly to my laptop and get on the internet so...


Start by checking for "link" between the modem and wireless router. This is usually a tiny light built into the network port itself on each piece of network equipment. It should be solidly on if the link is good. If it isn't on, check that you have the network cables plugged in good and that the cables or connectors are not broken or damaged. If you have another network cable, try it instead of the one you were using.

If these steps don't help, you can try fully resetting your wireless router to factory defaults, then reconfiguring it again. Consult the manual for your brand and model of wireless router for this. It may also have additional troubleshooting steps.

There is a chance your wireless router has simply gone bad. I've seen new Belkin wireless routers for as little as $29, so you may want to go that route, rather than spending too much time trying to troubleshoot the one you have.

Keep getting message that cable has been disconnected..


First off, you need to update Windows.Go to where your modem is, unplug the ethernet cable from the router and connect direct to your computer, and run Windows update. You may have to reboot several times before all the updates have been implemented.

Then, the flag message you have been getting "cable disconnected" indicates to me that the flag is coming from the internal network card of your computer, not the wireless client in the computer. You need to make sure the wireless client is setup properly to see the router.

Do you know if security has been setup on the router? If so, we will need to walk down that road to get it set up on your laptop.

But first things first. Get the computer updated, and reply back answers tot he above, as well as what Operating System,s you are running.
