    I could connect fine to the internet through my modem..then put my daughters router on board and her lap top works great..but my desk top cannot connect to internet even though it says it is connected. The AIM things comes up but yahoo will not. It has to be something to do with connecting through the router instead of straight from the modem.Any suggestios?

Yes I have a suggestion, here is what you need to do.
1 Make sure your new router is connected to the Ethernet port on the DSL/Cable Modem, you never specified which type of modem you have, if I knew this information I could assist you even more accurately. Your PC should be connected to the new router also on one of the Ehternet ports, they usually have 4. You need to verify your computer (PC) is getting the DHCP information from the new Router(Linksys) This can easily be determined using this command in az DOS window. If you are using Windows XP, again you did not specify your PC's OS, go to "Start", then "Run" and type in "cmd", withouth the quotes.
This will open a DOS window. In this window type "ipconfig /all"
The important thing to look for here is your Network cards IP Address, Default Gateway, Primary and Secondary Domain Servers Addresses. These should nearly match your daughters information, except for the IP address, whcih will be close but the last number(s) will be different. Most of the time the problem is due to both the modem and the router are on the same network and are both running DHCP, which is what gives out the IP address, default gateway and DNS information for your PC and your Daughters to use for Internet access. It could also be that your PC has the same IP address as her's, whcih will cause the exact problem you are discribing as well. If you turn off her laptop and can then access the Internet on your PC, then this is exactly what is happening. You will then need to make sure the Linksys Router and the DSL/Cable Modem are on a different network, by changing the address of one or the other, it is easiest for you to probably just change the Router. It is problably set to or Hook your PC directly into the modem again. run the command "ipconfig /all" and look at the IP address it gives your PC. If this is the same as the one your Router is giving, then you have found your problem. Unplug from the modem an again plug straight into the router, nothing else. Open a web browser and type in http://192.168.x.x whatever the IP address is for the default gateway that is shown on your PC. You should get a login window. By default Linksys usually uses admin as the username and password, consult your manual to be certain. In the web page that opens, your manual can help you further here as well, there should be a "Setup" link you can click where you can change the "LAN" network IP Address. You only need to change the 3rd number, as in 192.168."X".1 If the modem was for example change the Routher to and you should be fine. Please let me know if this has helped or if you need further assistance.

No enternet access

Check the wireless router and high-speed modem.

If the two are not powered on, or if the Ethernet cable connected the two is not completely inserted into both connection ports, you are unable to access the Internet on the Acer Aspire One laptop computer.

Activate the wireless Internet connection on the laptop computer.

Right-click the wireless icon on the desktop, then choose "Enable" from the pop-up menu.

Without activating the wireless receiver on the Acer Aspire One, the laptop is unable to detect any wireless network.

Select the appropriate network you wish to connect to.

Your computer may be attempting to connect to a different Internet connection, preventing you from access the network you desire.

Right-click the wireless icon, select "Search for available wireless networks," then choose the network you want to access.

Restart the computer.

The system may have booted and failed to detect the wireless receiver.

Restarting the computer corrects this issue.

hope this helps

Need help connecting a 2wire usb adaptor without the software

You need the drivers. An oversimlified analogy of what a driver is - drivers are what the computer uses to translate the language the devices speaks into a language the computer can understand. It allows the two to talk to each other.
You should be able to download the drivers for this device at
The manufacturer for any device that you connect to your computer should have the drivers necessary to install it on their website. If the device you are trying to install is a network device (wireless or wired) and you are unable to access the internet, the best suggestion I have is to borrow a friends computer and a USB key/drive or have them burn a CD with the drivers on it for you.

You will need to connect your laptop to an ethernet connection to get on the internet so that you can download the drivers for your MIMO USB ADAPTER. You can also download the file on another computer and use a flash drive or burn a CD to transfer the files to your laptop.

Scanning from wireless laptop

First of all, just use a USB cable, there not that expensive and it will be alot easier.

If you must use wireless. The laptop is trying to connect directly to the scanner or is there a print server somewhere, is there internet being used, is it connecting to another access point or wireless router?

Thes questions need clerifying.

Again. Wirless is supposed to be easy but we all know it isnt always true.

I would either Hardwire into the network or printer or connect direct to the scanner VIA USB.
