    Sorry I haven't responded sooner. I do have a modem/router combo (ZyXEL #PK5001Z) from my ISP. It is bundle with both my DSL internet and my landline phone service. I am currently using only the DSL modem and phone that is connected to my HP Compaq Presario model #CQ5720F desktop pc with windows 7 64-bit. My desktop does not Wi-Fi built-in. MY GOAL: I want to switch my DSL over to the wireless router that is built into the DSL modem. Also, as I am novice to all of this; I just realized that since I want to switch to wireless I would have to cancel my DSL with phone service. Meaning that I will then have to return the modem/router. Now needing help with how-to and what I will need to purchase in order to securely and safely connect to wireless internet both at home and on-the-go, with a phablet and or smartphone. Thank-you!

I have a dell desktop with wireless connection, there is also a wireless router connected to the dell to send a wireless connection to a laptop in the household. in a bedroom in the house is a compaq...


As you mentioned, your Compaq Presario MV520 is using Windows 98 OS. As we all know, dial-up connection is the only available internet connection at that time so obviously Win 98 has dial-up LAN connection. However, you wanted to have wireless connection on that PC so you need to install a wireless adapter to that PC. First of all, most wireless adapters that are being used for desktop PC are wireless USB adapter, so you need to have a USB port on that PC. And also, you will need to check if the software for the wireless adapter will be accepted by the PC because since the PC is using Win 98 OS, we are not sure if the firmware of the wireless adapter will be compatible to the PC. Basically, my answer would be not possible.

My Wireless adapter is not shown on my computer .I have A Presario F700 that works perfect except this glich.I have gone to Network and Sharing and it shows my home and work Ethernet connection but NO...


You need to check if your wireless adapter is on by going to device manager and looking for wireless adapter etc,assuming you are using a windows o/s. You also need to check if you have switch on the adapter manually as many laptop provide a button or manual key to put it off for power efficiency reasons..Hope this helps and rate my answer.Thanks

Kicks off dial-up after 5 minutes-dial-up shows still connected compaq presario sr111onx


This is normal. All users of dial up get kicked off randomly to make room on the service providers servers for other users to log on. In addition to it's extremely slow speed, this is the downside to dial up. I would suggest switching to DSL or Cable. It's a constant 'On' connection you cannot get kicked off of.

Compaq SR1720NZ to wireless?


i believe the simplest way to do this is to buy a external USB wireless adaptor for your computer. thats saying that your dsl modem has a wireless signal being broadcasted already . if you dont have wireless built into your DSL or Cable modem, you will also need a wireless capable router to send it to your computer...
keep in mind that the wireless external network adapter could easily be used with ANY computer to connect wirelessly, so it's not limmitted to just your current hardware.

Compaq presario sr2020nx ethernet adapter issue


Since youre setting up a DSL connection choose Set up broadband connection > PPPoE. You will need the username and password you were given to this account (contact customer service at your ISP for this info). Enter the info and have it remember the password. Click connect. Once Vista finds the connection, it will ask you to choose a network type (Home, Work, or Public). Select the type and enjoy. If the connection fails, recheck your username and password entries.
