Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

A friend has a Thomson TG782t connected via ethernet cable. I have set up the wi-fi connection which computer is recognising but when I remove the ethernet cable so we can move the computer away from the phone it say the LAN is unplugged and I have to plug it back in. When I connected to wi-fi on my computer (with a different ISP) I just removed the ethernet cable and had no problems.

Can I use ethernet and wifi together?


No, you can use both type of connection without problem. Ethernet is a direct wired and generally faster connection. Wi-Fi is a via air form of transmission and is highly dependent on how many cellphones and computers are connected at any one time. In airports where I work, this is a big problem. My airport lounge has its own Wi-Fi provided by DataValet for this reason.

When you connect via Ethernet the connection will be used automatically. when you wish to use Wi-Fi, you will choose that in settings. You should only use one, although it isn't going to hurt if your try connecting via both. My guess, is that it will take the best signal.

Connecting Two Computers Directly With Cable for a home network


The simplest and easy way to start a home network 


The simplest kind and easy to maintain of home network contains exactly two computers. You can use this kind of network to share files, a printer or another peripheral device, and even an Internet connection. To connect two computers for sharing these and other network resources, consider the options described below.
Connecting Two Computers Directly With Cable

The traditional method to network two computers involves making a dedicated link by plugging one cable into the two systems. Several alternatives exist for networking two computers in this manner: Ethernet crossover cable
Null modem serial cable or parallel peripheral cable
Special-purpose USB cables
Ethernet crossover cable
Null modem serial cable or parallel peripheral cable
Special-purpose USB cables
Ethernet - Of the above choices, the Ethernet method is preferred as it supports a reliable, high-speed connection with minimal configuration required. Additionally, Ethernet technology offers the most general-purpose solution, allowing networks with more than two computers to be built fairly easily later. If one of your computers possesses an Ethernet adapter but the other has USB, an Ethernet crossover cable can still be used by first plugging a USB-to-Ethernet converter unit into the computer's USB port.

Ethernet crossover cables

Serial and parallel - This type of cabling, called Direct Cable Connection (DCC) when using Microsoft Windows, offers lower performance but offers the same basic functionality as Ethernet cables. You may prefer this option if you have such cables readily available and network speed is not a concern. Serial and parallel cables are never used to network more than two computers.

USB - Ordinary USB cables must not be used to connect two computers directly to each other. Attempting to do so can electrically damage the computers! However, special USB cables designed for direct connection exist that can be used safely. You may prefer this option over others if your computers lack functional Ethernet network adapters.

To make dedicated connections with Ethernet, USB, serial or parallel cables requires
each computer have a functioning network interface with an external jack for the cable, and
the network settings on each computer appropriately configured
One phone line or power cord cannot be used to directly connect two computers to each other for networking.

Connecting Two Computers with Cable through Central Infrastructure
Rather than cable two computers directly, the computers may instead be joined indirectly through a central network fixture. This method requires two network cables, one connecting each computer to the fixture. Several types of fixtures exist for home networking: Ethernet hubs, switches, and routers 
USB hubs
Phoneline and powerline wall outlets
Ethernet hubs, switches, and routers
USB hubs
Phoneline and powerline wall outlets

Implementing this method often entails additional up-front cost to purchase more cables and network infrastructure. However, it's a general-purpose solution accommodating any reasonable number of devices (e.g, ten or more). You will likely prefer this approach if you intend to expand your network in the future.

Most cabled networks utilize Ethernet technology. Alternatively, USB hubs can be employed, while powerline and phoneline home networks each offer their own unique form of central infrastructure. The traditional Ethernet solutions are generally very reliable and offer high performance.
Connecting Two Computers Wirelessly
In recent years, wireless solutions have enjoyed increasing popularity for home networking. As with cabled solutions, several different wireless technologies exist to support basic two computer networks: Wi-Fi
Bluetooth
infrared
Wi-Fi
Bluetooth
infrared
Wi-Fi connections can reach a greater distance than the wireless alternatives listed above. Many newer computers, especially laptops, now contain built-in Wi-Fi capability, making it the preferred choice in most situations. Wi-Fi can be used either with or without a network fixture. With two computers, Wi-Fi networking minus a fixture (also called ad-hoc mode) is especially simple to set up. How To - Set Up an Ad Hoc WiFi Network

How To - Set Up an Ad Hoc WiFi Network

Bluetooth technology supports reasonably high-speed wireless connections between two computers without the need for a network fixture. Bluetooth is more commonly used when networking a computer with a consumer handheld device like a cell phone. Most desktop and older computers do not possess Bluetooth capability. Bluetooth works best if both devices are in the same room in close proximity to each other. Consider Bluetooth if you have interest in networking with hand held devices and your computers lack Wi-Fi capability. 

Infrared networking existed on laptops years before either Wi-Fi or Bluetooth technologies became popular. Infrared connections only work between two computers, do not require a fixture, and are reasonably fast. Being very simple to set up and use, consider infrared if your computers support it and you lack the desire to invest effort in Wi-Fi or Bluetooth.

If you find mention of an alternative wireless technology called Home RF, you can safely ignore it. Home RF technology became obsolete several years ago and is not a practical option for home networking.

Try it is the best home network option.

Can't download anything on my Acer Aspire 5552-3691


I don't see a question above, so I'll just assume that you're asking how to fix your computer so that you can connect to the internet. Is that correct?

If so and since you have reset your computer back to factory settings, you should check that all of your software is updated to the latest versions. This would include your operating system and drivers.

Then, you should check that your computer can connect to the internet via ethernet (RJ-45) cable. You would want to directly connect your laptop using the ethernet cable to your router. If this works, you can move on to trying to connect via Wi-Fi. If this doesn't work, you should check that there are no software/driver issues and/or hardware issues with your computer.

If you are trying to connect via Wi-Fi, again you will want to check that all drivers and software are up to date (so that you are on the latest versions of your operating system and the Wi-Fi care inside your computer has the latest driver so that it can connect to your wireless router). Then you will want to attempt to connect and most likely re-input your Wi-Fi password.

My internet access through my ethernet cable keeps crashing.I have a dell inspiron 570 and have changed the ethernet cable,power cable,home hub.I can connect ok via wi-fi to my laptop but my desktop does...


Either that or the ethernet chip on the motherboard is failing - you will need to disable this one from the BIOS and install a simple PCI LAN card in its place

Bigpond have sent me my 4 port Wi-Fi modem thompson TG782T Home Network Gateway, now I am sitting here trying to figure out just where everything goes!!! I received a cd rom however I can't get it to work,...


Telephone wall-plate <---- 4-strand telephone-cord ---> telephone-port in modem

AC power from wall-plate to modem.

LAN port #1 <--- Ethernet cable --> network-port on desktop/laptop computer #1.
LAN port #2 <--- Ethernet cable --> network-port on desktop/laptop computer #2.
LAN port #3 <--- Ethernet cable --> network-port on desktop/laptop computer #3.
LAN port #4 <--- Ethernet cable --> network-port on desktop/laptop computer #4.

Configure the router's wireless adapter:
* set a SSID
* set an encryption-level, e.g., 'WPA'
* set a network password

Use the SSID/password to configure your wireless devices (iPod Touch, iPad, XBOX 360, etc.)
