The mac is demanding much of the bandwidth available, thus the other machines get put on the back burner. You may want to see what they are using the internet for? If they are playing games or downloading music and movies, there is a huge demand for bandwidth. Let us know what the mac is doing.

Just bought a used gateway laptop model#m320s3400335 and cannot get internet access through a wireless network or online at all.


SETTING UP A BROADBAND CONNECTION
First you need to decide what type of broadband and Internet service you require and these are -
1. DSL that uses your existing telephone line.
2. Cable that uses a cable service and can include a cable TV service.
3. A wireless 3G network uses the mobile/cell phone network and can be separate or combine with your cell phone account. This type of Internet connection uses an USB wireless device shaped like an USB memory stick.
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 then your laptop with a wireless card can then connect to the Internet. You can also connect to a free WiFi hot spots like McDonalds, Star Bucks, the Airport etc. using the wireless card in your laptop.
If you use the wireless 3G wireless broadband service, 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 associated additional costs 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.

How to Connect a Mac Laptop to a Cell Phone Modem


  • 1 Connect the USB data cable to your wireless phone. This data cable is going to plug into the power port you use to charge the device. Plug the other end of the cable into an available USB port on the computer.
  • 2 Click on the blue Apple icon in the upper-left hand corner. From the drop-down menu, select "System Preferences."
  • 3 Click "Network" in "System Preferences." The Macbook is going to scan your system to see what networks are available to you. Once the Macbook has detected your wireless phone you are going to be greeted with a pop-up window stating a new port has been detected.
  • 4 Download and install the wireless modem driver for your phone. There is a link in "Resources" that has a series of different drivers. If you do not see one, you can go to your wireless phone's manufacturer's website and download the drivers directly from the site.
  • 5 Open the Finder and type "Library" in the search box. Open the Library folder, followed by "Modem Scripts." Click and drag the driver you downloaded into this window.
  • 6 Return back to "Network" in "System Preferences." Click your phone as the default modem.
  • 7 Click "PPP" and type in the account name, password and telephone number of your Internet Service Provider (this is given to you when you first create your Internet account).
  • 8 Accept the changes and you are free to start surfing the Web with your wireless phone as the modem.

    It also can setup a wireless device, such as a laptop or phone via a MAC Address ( Media Access Control) number that is assigned to almost every wireless device.
    Here is an instruction set to follow to set up your wireless device in your router ( it is generic but works).

    How to connect to internet with my cell phone motorzr max v6


    Using your cell phone as a modem is perhaps the most overlooked of all Internet connection options. But a mobile phone Internet connection, whether as a tethered modem or, using bluetooth, a wireless cell phone Internet connection, is easy to set up, and with a laptop and cellphone you can check email and surf the web from anywhere, any time, with the Internet in your pocket!
    Here are the basic instructions for creating a mobile phone Internet connection. The instructions are for a cell phone with bluetooth (which most cell phones these days have), but if your cell phone doesn’t have bluetooth you can buy a cable to connect your laptop to your phone from any cell phone accessory provider. Conversely, if your cell phone has bluetooth but your laptop does not, you can buy a small USB device which will enable bluetooth on your computer.
