Question about Computers & Internet
Hi, can't connect to the internet with my laptop Win Vista . It shows connected to internet but when try to connect nothing happens. I see that shows "local connection" only and no "local and internet". If I go through my neighbor I connect inmediately and my laptop shows "local and internect connection". Can this be related to my Win XP desktop modem which is aprox 3 yrs old? My high speed cable connection is through my XP pc and I am using a Linksys router to try to connect via wireless to my newer laptop. Please help. Thanks
I may be able to help with this...but I need a detailed description of how you have things connected between the XP desktop, the cable, modem, the Linksys router, and the laptop. Also, is the Linksys router new?
Typically, the wan port on the wireless router connects directly to the cable modem with a cat5 network cable....then the desktop pc connects to the router...on port 1 for example...with a similar cable. Once the wireless router is set up properly, the laptop should then be able to connect using wireless.
