Hello, You would need an ISP(Internet Service Provider) to connect a wireless router to at the office. You can use a wireless router at home with comcast. Very easy to connect. The router range in price from 30.00 and up. A good one for home would be $40-50.00. A 802.11g wireless router 54Mbps or a 802.11n at 108Mbps. The n router is the newest and fastest but sometimes doesn't work with some applications. The g router is great for the home and is backward compatible with the b devices. Go to www.newegg.com they have great prices and very fast ship. Hope this helps. Thanks

Using d-link glb-802 c router , now purchased another system , from router how should i connect to my another system


if the router is wireless and the new system is wireless ready then the router should pick up the signal fine and run the internet smoothly however some routers come with a security key examples WEP, WPA, WPA 2 these are the most common forms of security if this is the case you will have to enter the key on the router or in the User Manual before you have internet access... if the router is not wireless then you simply buy a new ethernet cable which now are fairly cheap if you know where to go depending on size and plug it in to the router and the appropriate slot on the computer system and this should connect you to the internet... if you system is not wireless but your router is you can now buy wireless cards that fit into the computer which recieves the signal from the router or a wireless adapter which does the same but plugs in via USB. any other information please feel free to talk to me but these options should solve your issue

You would connect a laptop from Canada the same way as one from the US. You want to make sure the wireless card is turned on and check for wireless networks. Once you have found your network select it make sure you type the password correctly.

Linksys Wireless-G2.4 GHz Broadband that my laptop doesnn't recog


You will need to check the wireless settings of the router
is there any computer connected to the router ?
If yes then you can open the router set up page on that computer.
Router set up page is the page where you can check all the wireless settings of the router.

If that doesn't work then upgrade the firmware of the router.
Firmware is the software of the router. After upgrading the firmware, it is recommended that you should reset the router and reconfigure the router.

I have just purchased a netbook. How do I use a router to connect to the internet. I already have a modem. Do I plug the router into the modem??? How will the netbook pick up the signal. Thanks


If you have an internal modem, just plug the ADSL directly to it. If not, the router is at the same time the modem, just plug the ADSL line to it then connect it to your netbook (of course the modem/router must be configured properly).

Can no longer pick up router signal


Does the wireless light still lit on the router? You can try changing the channel on the router (1 6 or 11) ans moving the antenna. If those things did not work upgrade the firmware of the router and reset to factory default. Do not forget to save the configuration file before you reset to factory default.

You need to make sure your router is set up correctly, as well as your internet connection, whether it's cable modem or DSL or whatever.

First of all, what kind of internet access do you have?

Connecting Dlink DI-514 with my another 3com router (wireless)


No, the router requires an Ethernet cable be plugged into the back of it to receive its Internet signal.

As far as I'm aware there are no consumer-grade routers that will pick up a wireless signal from another router and use that as the Internet source.

Sorry you didn't get the answer you were after. :-\

My linksys wrt54g v8 will not recognize the internet


Try to do a hard reset on the router. Hold down the button on the back of the router for 10 seconds. This will clear all of the settings out of its memory. Then try to connect again. If this doesnt work power down both your router and your cable modem. Let them sit for a minute and then plug in the modem and wait 30 seconds. THen plug in the Wireless router. The issue should resolve itself.
