My new tablet will not connect to internet. i have the usb plugged into mt laptop. i do not have a wireless router?


open network connections on your laptop and select both the wireless adapter AND the internet connection adapter in there and right click on them and click bridge connections. Then go into the network setup wizard (XP) or network and sharing center and click connect to a network and choose adhoc connection. then open wireless settings on the coby kyros and connect to the adhoc connection on your laptop. You should then be able to connect to the internet on it

I have a wireless network of computers, one wired and 2 wireless. in the correct setup, my other acer laptop doesn have internet, but s connected to the router, and this laptop im using CAN connect...


All the computers should have the same NETWORK NAME or SSID.

Recheck the settings and make an adhoc connection for each of the computers to your router.

You can also get a USB wireless adapter to enable ht NO internet laptop and connect them.

Just keep playing with the NETWORK SETTINGS.

Make sure all are connected to the SAME SSID.

Hope it helped.

God Bless You!

How to connect wifi..


Wireless router side
  • 1. Set wireless mode to B-G-N Mixed
  • 2. Standard Channel = 8
  • 3. Encryption - TKIP

Phone side
  • 1. Delete the configured wireless connection/s if you already have one.
  • 2. Enable wi-fi but do not perform search at the moment
  • 3. Now open the browser and select settings then browser profiles press search for wi-fi.
  • 4. Select the connection that you want to connect to then type the details and match the settings on the router.
  • 5. Auth type = WPA, encryption = TKIP, network key = router pre-shared key, protocol = HTTP, Home URL = address of modem (you can change it later if everything is already working), leave proxy blank, linger = default, adhoc = off, no need to do advance settings.
  • 6. Save the settings and do not connect yet.
  • 7. Exit the browser and go to Wi-Fi and select the connection that you have just configured and select details.
  • 8. Check all the settings if ok. if the channel is different with the router, adjust it on the router to match the one used by the phone. IP address = not connected (it will automatically connect once you browse the internet).
  • 9. Now, try to browse the internet but you must set first the connection you've just configured as default connection.


That's it. I hope that this helps. This applies only to personal wireless network.

Happy browsing!!!!

My husband has Netgear in our house but i need an IP address for my lap top and Ipod, can you help me with that?


If your laptop has wireless card installed, turn on wireless radio of laptop. It will show the networks available and will allow you to create a new adhoc network. Try to create a new adhoc network and assign a new network name. It will broadcast an IP over adhoc network and you can connect other wireless device to the laptop using this adhoc network name.

Wired nor wireless connections for my ps3 wont work


if you setup your wireless in adhoc mode like useing the pc wirless it wont work because ps3 doesnt see adhoc wireless.

and for the ethernet connection is the pc setup right. you have to enable internet sharing on the accuall interface that has internet..
If local area connection 1 is connected to internet and local area connection 2 is plugged into ps3 then under local area connection 1 settings you have to set share this connection and in the drop down menu select local area connection 2. other than that you need to buy a router.

I am no longer able to connect my wireless router...why?


Hi canuck07,

Here's how to remove the ad-hoc setting (I'm assuming you're running Windows XP):

1) Right-click on the wireless icon on your system tray (right end of taskbar) and choose "Open Network Connections,"
OR go to Start Menu > Control Panel > Network and Internet Connections > Network Connections.
2) Right-click the wireless connection and choose Properties.
3) Select the Wireless Networks tab.
4) Under "preferred networks," select your network and click "Properties."
5) On the Association Tab, the bottom check-box corresponds to ad-hoc networks - uncheck it.

Hopefully this will make your adapter able to find your network. Please let me know if this doesn't work, or if I can be of any further assistance.
