I have sony wireless keyboard and mouse. how can it work with other computer

It is wireless probably because there is a small usb dongle plugged into your laptop or it is blue tooth/wifi. It will possibly work with other machines if you use the dongle or pair the blue tooth or set up the wifi.

Once the range extender is in "discover" mode it will find your existing wireless network. It will then take the name of it and add '_ext' to it. giving you a second wireless network. For instance, if your wireless network was called my-house, the extender would create one called my-house_ext.

Hi i have a toshiba nb200 and my problem is that the wifi stopped working after i installed a dongle and i dont know how to factory reset because i havent got an image or a recovery disk.

No need to factory reset your PC. Go to system restore, restore the system to a point before you installed the dongle, then the problem will be solved.

I have bought an Acer Aspire One netbook from a friend. I also have a 3 mobile dongle but I just cannot get the netbook to connect to the internet. I have tried to go on the Live Update tab but it keeps...

The Acer Aspire netbook I bought has a switch on it to connect to the WiFi Internet G. If you want to use the dongle to communicate on the Internet, then first try to use the built in Wifi to install the driver for it.

I wanted to search the web on the compaq armada 3500 that i got and was wondering where the cable goes and if it even gets internet

hi yes you should be able to connect a wifi dongle via the usb port on the side for your internet connection, you would have to buy a pcmcia network card if you want network connection to internet through your modem, so if you have wifi router/modem then a dongle would be better..hope this helps

Is there a switch for working on-line? I have lost my ability to connect to on-line wirelss

Yes on the front I think but it might be your internal wireless adapter that is hosed. Try taking it out and removing all drivers. Get up to date drivers from mfg from another internet connected computer. Reinstall it and load the new drivers. If all else fails go buy a USB WIFI dongle from Walmart or BestBuy for $39.95 and use it instead. If you get an extension SB cable you can get more range by moving the dongle around or putting inside a coffee can.
