Re: wireless internet

There will be a lapse in network communications as your laptop switches from LAN to Wireless, presumming that you have a Wireless access point in the area with DHCP enabled. If it doesn't work at all when unplugged from the ethernet, you may want to verify that your Wireless is turned on, and connecting to your network using the Wireless Network Configurator included with windows xp and above

Do I have to have a wireless card in my lap top to make it work with my router, the lap top is a Hp 7000 and router has wireless set up. I can make the wireless light, light up but I can't get on...

Call up the company that made your computer, and tell them of this error. You are most likely missing the driver for your computer that allows wireless internet. They will tell you exactly what you need.

I just bought a lap top and want to know how to set up with my home broadband

First you need to decide what type of broadband service you require and these are -
1. DSL which uses your existing telephone line.
2. Cable which uses a cable service and can include a cable TV service.
3. A wireless 3G network which uses the mobile/cell phone service and can be separate or combine with your cell phone account
Note - combined services generally offer discount pricing and may include a modem/wireless router.

If you use a wireless router with the DSL or Cable Internet service and your laptop has a wireless card then you can also connect to the Internet at WiFi hot spots like McDonalds, Star Bucks, the Airport etc.
If you use the wireless 3G wireless network, then you can access the Internet anywhere where your ISP has 3G wireless coverage. You need to check the service coverage area where you need Internet service.

Once you decide what type of broadband your require, then you need to check with the various Internet Service providers to see if they can offer and the cost of the various plans.
Note the download limits and the associates additional cost if you exceed the monthly download limits.

Once you sign up with a Internet Service provider, their documentation will include setting up instructions and/or installation CD.

I have a hp lap top with wireless internet. It says that it is connected and i try to get on the internet and the gives me a error message. what do i do??

From what you have told us I would unplug and replug in your telephone or cable modem then your wireless router in that order.

If it still dosent work then try the repair internet connection under network troubleshooter on your laptop.

If that doesn't work delete the connection you are having trouble with (on the computer), reboot the computer and rediscover the wireless router/access point and see if that gets it.

Best I can due with limited info. hope it helps.
