In the simplest terms buy a longer ethernet cable or multiple ethernet cables and route them to several preferred areas.

However believing you probably would like to connect wirelessly

If your laptop has a built-in network card and originally came with Vista you may need to configure the network adapter and/or the router appropriately. There are often user guides for the both the adapter and router that will assist.

If your laptop has an built-in wireless adapter and you upgraded to Vista you should check the manufacturers website using support or drivers links to see if they have Vista software/drivers to support your built-in wireless adapter. IF not you may want to consider the purchase of a compatible add-on wireless adapter as noted below. And perform the appropriate configuration(s) as noted above.

Likewise if your laptop does not have a wireless adapter you may wish to consider purchasing an adapter. Care must be taken that the adapter is compatible with your computer, your operating system (Vista) and your wireless router (apparently WBR-1310).

    So you laptop corresponds to the third paragraph. Can you provide the information about your Internet Service Provider
    including their name, their local affiliate, if any and the general
    location of the your location such as city and state to determine what
    services the router must provide to connect to this ISP's modem? Can you provide the following information manufacturer and model of your computer? Do you own or are you willing to purchase a wireless router or a wireless access point or can you confirm you have a WBR-1310 you wish to use? Then if supported by your ISP we should be able to connect the router (assuming it supports the required services) to the ISP's modem and test it with a wired connection. We can then test it with an unencrypted wireless connection. The finally if desired and possible convert it to a secure encrypted connection. If that partially or fully reflects your desires please provide the indicated information and I will begin to research the necessary information to complete this.

    See the following link as an indication that progress has been made on a similar issue in the past.

    Not fully knowing the size of your home you should be considering the where the router should be located -- for the best coverage inside the house only toward (not absolutely at) the center of the house both in terms of height including the basement, if any and length and width could be beneficial (size can make this irrelevant. If you wish to have some access outside closer to the side of the house you wish to have access outside and a window may be helpful. The more suburban (close the homes) or when in an apartment complex additional considerations should be made as to security of your service unless you want your neighbors sharing your wireless service.

    This says I would like to try to help you connect a Vista computer with a built-in wireless adapter to your wireless router. in order to do this I need to know about your wireless adapter which I can research if I know the manufacturer and model of your computer (assuming wireless was built in) and only you can tell me. I would also like to confirm the manufacturer and model of your wireless adapter again only you can tell me. In addition I have asked if you are concerned (my opinion does not matter in this decision) with the possibility that your neignbors could be using your router if it is unsecured, if so with the above information I can discuss securing your router with encryption if you provide the information requested about your wireless adapter (or computer) and confirm the information about your wireless router.

No broadband connection.

Since you successfully have connected the Vista system to the router, it is the router that is blocking access. Has the router been configured to allow only a short list of unique MAC-addresses to be able to access the Internet?

If you use a cable to DIRECTLY connect the Vista system to the cable-modem (or DSL-modem), and then power-off/power-on that modem, and then restart the Vista system, do you get Internet access?

Can not connect to internet

For wireless:

-Some laptops do have a wireless switch. Make sure it is enabled.
-Make sure you laptop is getting a strong signal.

For wired:
-Check physical connection. Make sure the Ethernet cord is securely connected.

Both wired and wireless:
-Check IP address if its valid, if its valid it means the laptop is connected on the network.
-Check the lights on your modem to check if the modem is getting Internet or if its online.
-If you have a Windows 7 or Windows Vista, you can go to "Network and Sharing Center" check if where the red "X" mark. By checking it you can tell whether the problem if between your Internet provider to your modem or its the network.

Does my new Emachine laptop have no dial up modem?

Correct. It's looking for a standard dialer modem. You may just need to go through the internet connection wizard and define how you want to connect. With a wireless adapter, you could locate and connect to internet with that instead of a dial-up modem. Internet connetion wizard comes with Vista and XP and is found: Start > Control Panel > Network connections.

Cannot connect to my Sony laptop with Windows vista

Hmm..the best way I can think of here is to get both Techs on the same line so that they can discuss what the problem really is. I've tried this before and I have to admit. Things worked out very well, It seems a device built in my laptop was not running properly, so I had to install it again, it's called the NIC or Network Interface Card and it's the device that allows your laptop to communicate with the modem.
Regarding the lights in your modem. The DSL light should always be Steady Green, that means that your modem is in Sync with the network. If it's blinking, check all connections, make sure every physical connection is connected properly, if the dsl light is still blinking, that's a network problem already and you should call Verizon so that they can send a tech to fix it.

Sometimes it's difficult to isolate the problem for an internet connection, but to make it clearer for you and anyone else with the same issue. The modem is the central part of the connection. It's a verizon problem if the problem is the connection of the modem to the central office, and you can check it with the DSL light and Internet light.

It can either be a Verizon Problem or a Modem to PC problem, if the problem is between the modem to the pc. Possible Scenarios here are: The modem is defective, the NIC is defective, the Ethernet Cable is defective.
The first is a verizon problem only if the modem is still covered by warranty, if the modem is qualified for a DSP or a Device Service Plan, then that's good, you don't need to buy a new modem anymore. The second and third issue is a physical problem with the devices already and you'll need to have your pc fixed.

Try and isolate the issue, and if you can, let me know and I'll let you know what you can do to fix your problem.

Vista/router/wireless connection

Make sure that all the wireless cards are set in the properties to obtain an ip address automatically, dissable the wired lan adpter connections as this can confuse the router. Restart all the pc's and then right click on the wireless pc icon in your task bar and then click view wireless networks and make sure that you are connected to your network and that the internet is available, known as local & internet in Vista. open up internet explorer, go to tools, internet options and delete browsing history cookies and temp files and then refresh the page as the proxy server will need to refresh.
