If your laptop does not have a wireless card built into the computer then yes I would go and buy a usb wifi adapter because you cant get wifi if you dont get one.

If you wish to increase the wireless performance on your 3 yrs laptop then you may purchase N standard adapter like WN111. Otherwise if the wireless adapter on the laptop is working normally then you can still connect to the wireless network using that.

Hope this helps.

If you have your laptop with wifi, then it will connect your router wireless,, if your pc dont have wifi, then you should connect your wifi router with usb adapter,, so that then you can connect other laptop or wifi devices with wireless

Apple USB Ethernet suddenly not functional with mac book air


I've run into a similar problem myself. The problem could be that there is another device in the area using the same frequency and is causing interference. Try changing the frequency on your adapter. If you've recently added a wireless device and you can't change the frequency on your adapter try changing the frequency on the new device or turning it off to test if it's the problem.
It's possible someone else in the area has added a device that's causing the problem look around for new wireless devices or antenna in the area.

ADAPTER not working


Check the distance bet computer and the Router.
Donot keep your router near television, microwaveoven or any radio active devces, it may reduce the performance.
Check the Antena terminals for any loose connections.
If possible check your wireless signal strength with another Laptop, to diagnose the router is working fine.
If everything seems to be fine, it maybe the issue with the Adapter.

Is there an ethernet cable that will fit into a panasonic cf28 toughbook laptop as i need this in order to get it to go wireless


If there's an ethernet socket on the computer then there's a cable to fit it.
Most computers today have ethernet as standard (the socket and cable have been standard for years).
Why do you have to use the ethernet to connect wirelessly? Normally just activating the wifi in the computer and logging into the router is all that is needed.

Wireless switch on my pc is on but cant connect Work with ethernet cable plugged in.Are there any settings?


Things to try:

1. Plug in the ethernet cable then restart the laptop.

2. Right click on your local area connection and make sure its enabled

3. Make sure your wireless adapter is disabled.

4. Check if you need a static ip address on your work network. and if so have them assign you an ip address for your laptop.

5 Test your computers ethernet port on another wired network to make sure that it is good.

6. Get a usb to ethernet adapter for your laptop if your ethernet port is bad on your laptop.

When i turn on the new installed printer, no more internet


Hello! I recommend that if you have a second desktop or laptop try to install those devices on it, so you can check if your old PC is the source of the problem or it is one of the devices. I think the most probable reason for this could be a power failure on that old desktop pc, that results on bad management of USB ports

USB Broadband to wireless router through desktop PC


If I get you right you are useing a 3g Internet connection and have a router wich conets the 2 computers together, the problem is that you can't share the internet connection.
Without any information about the operateing systems I can tell you the idea:
First you need to disable DHCP server on the router and use static IP addresses on both PC, the IP address should be something like

PC1:
IP: 192.168.0.2
Network mask:255.255.255.0

PC2:
IP: 192.168.0.3
Network mask: 255.255.255.0
Default gateway: 192.168.0.2

In this IP configuration above PC1 has the 3g modem connected.
This was the easy part, hard part is to share the internet connection on the network, that's a little different ritual on every operateing system, try to use google to get your specific one.


However there's a much more easier way to solve all your problems if you can't make it work, but it costs money. All you need to buy is a 3G router and that will do the same thing for you what your old router did.
I did a little search for you on Australian Ebay to see what you can get.
But I'm sure you have your own cheapbfavourite source of computer hardware as well.


Hope this will help you sorting out your porblem.

Imre

By the sounds of it the router is Wireless-G standard. This has a theoretical max speed of 54Mbps. If you wish to increase wireless speeds you would need to upgrade to Wireless-N standard. Do would need to change the wireless in the pc or laptop also. This should give a theoretical max speed of 100Mbps.
Ethernet cable will be cheaper!

Wireless router needing ethernet connection?


Hi ABVT66 - Didn't your router come with two short cables? It should have. One is the cable that hooks up the modem to your router and the other is the cat5 (ethernet) cable that connects your router to your pc. Let me know if you have these cables. Also, if you check your device manager on your pc, click on the + next to network adapters and it will tell you your network adapter. DON'T RATE THIS 'TIL WE'RE DONE. Thanks.
