Here are basic instructions how to setup a wireless home network. I call these basic instructions, because they assume that the modem and the router have different IP addresses.

When the modem and router have the same default IP address, the network turns to notwork. If the basic instructions do not work, list here the model of the modem and the model of the router and I'll instruct you on what to do in this case.

Details are difficult in written form, so I will give you a feel of what to look for. Your laptop is probably seeing a neighbors wireless signal and yours. Your security issue is that you are not using WEP or WPA. You need to enable that on your wireless router and use a password you will remember; but is not guessable.

As for the going online, while your tooling around in the router, make sure DHCP is on. If your router is connected to a modem, you may need to ensure your modem is NOT using DHCP.

My compaq cq60 connect to the wireless but won't connect to the internet


Have you tried restarting your broadband modem/router? As although your laptop is connecting to your broadband modem/router perhaps your modem/router is not connecting to the outside world. Once you have restarted your router, if you are still having problems, login to your router and check it's connection status. If it says anything other than "connected"/"ok"/"healthy", something along those lines, I would contact your ISP and check the status of your line. At this stage, if they confirm your line is working I would check the laptop for viruses/malware.

Hi,

Go to "My Network Places" and then click on "View Network connections". You should see an icon for your internet service provider. If you do not see an icon to your ISP, then click on "Create a new Connection" and follow the wizard which will guide you through the setup process.

How do u hook up ps3 online usin broadband card and laptop


Hi, The PS3 has a built in wireless card. You need a broadband internet connection& a wireless router for it to work this way.

What hardware do you have? You wont be able to connect the PS3 to the internet if you only have a laptop with a wireless broadband card. this is to be used for one PC/laptop at a time. Sorry

you could query this with Verizon though i am sure they would agree, that it is to be used for one PC/laptop to access the internet.

Thanks

Cant go online wireless (working before)


Hi jamesone..

This router will not support vista laptops..and the warranty period for this router is only a single year..better you can go for advanced g or gs routers .. model no's like..wrt54g or wrt54gs..with a warranty perion of 3 years..

HI baby..
this is for u..
It seems that you are not connected to the wireless connection ..i think the operating system in your laptop would be xp..to fix this problem
right click > wireless n/w connection > click view wirelss network connection > click change the order of the preffered network connections > select your wireless network name > from preffered wireless network and remove it..and then right click wireless network connection icon again and try connect to the network.. you will get connect.. and will get an ipaddress..
