Re: Connecting Wireless Modem to Laptop.
Firstly, you need to connect your router to a broadband activated phoneline. On the back of your router there is a socket which should say Phone Line and I believe it is at the top.
This will then radiate a radio broadband signal.
Next, you need to be able to link your computer(s) to your router. There are basically four ways of doing this.
1) ETHERNET - You can connect from the ethernet socket on your computer to the ethernet socket on your router. If you have an ethernet socket on your computer, this is the simplest connection but not always the most convenient. If you don't have an ethernet socket on your computer you will not be able to use the yellow cable.
2) USB - You can connect from the USB socket on the router to a USB socket on your computer. You will need to install USB drivers to do this, but it's not difficult.
3) WIRELESS - You can use a Wireless LAN Adaptor. This can either be a card, built in to your computer or an external USB linked wireless adaptor plugged into an available UBS socket on your computer. These are trickier to set up but you have the freedom to connect to the internet from anywhere within radio range of your router and without wires. Some computers have wireless network adaptors built in already, especially laptops. You can find out by doing the following:
Start\Programs\Accessories\Communications\Newtork Connections - check to see if any of the connections say 'wireless' If they do you're in luck.
4) HPNA - You could use a Home PNA Adaptor (HPNA). This allows you to connect to your router from a different room by plugging into a phone socket through through the HPNA. These can be a little unreliable and do suffere sometimes with interference.
As soon as you have connected to the router, you need to connect to the router's Gateway or control panel. This allows you to set a WEP security code for your network and stops your neighbour or anyone else from connecting to your network. If you use a wireless LAN you will have to set this up with your security code.
To prevent hash intereference to your phone, you need to use microfilters on each phone in your house. Usually a couple of filters will be included with your router, and you can easily purchase more, if you have phones all over your house.
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

I think the problem is you cannot connect to the internet wirelessly using your laptop. The problem may lie in the modem or in the laptop itself. First you need to isolate the problem. That is, determine if the laptop or your modem is the one that has the problem. If you can connect to the internet using your laptop in someone elses home network or free wifi outside your home, then the problem is your modem. BTW, modems don't have the capability to connect wireless devices to the internet. You need a wireless router. If what you have is a router, you're on the right track. If your laptop can detect your home network, try connecting to it. If you're getting an error, call your Internet Service Provider. They should be able to help you fix the problem. Also, try updating the driver of your laptop's wireless card. You can do this by hardwiring your laptop onto your router, go to device manager, right click on your wireless card, then hit update driver. If nothing works, call your laptop's OEM.
Thank you for using FixYa Wireless connections have a lot in common so here is a link that will give you the general configurations for a wireless Router to PC. Keep in mind that you will need to configure both the computer and the router in two separate steps. That is why it is best to use the setup disk that normally comes with a new piece of equipment and the cables.
Also keep in mind that the equipment should be matched or designed to work with the other equipment. You will have some kind of a modem either a cable modem or internal modem or external modem that the router will have to connect to.
It is best to allow your own Internet Service Provider to set up the connections. They may not be able to support the configuration if you do not purchase it from them and then you will need to do-it-yourself.
Here are the links for configuring the computer with the different operating systems

I hope this was useful and please comment if this was helpful to you.
1, connect your wireless router with cable to your laptop, 2. Login into your Asus-WL520gu and setup your wireless how you want it to run." do not bother with putting your username settings in there" 3. In your Asus-WL-520gu after setting up your wireless turn the DHCP off in it. 4. Now connect the cable that you have connected to your laptop to your router instead of your laptop. ""You should now be able to connect to the wireless with your settings. and connect anything ells you want to the other 4 ports on the back of you wireless router"" note: do not connect anything to the WAN port as it is used for DSL modems; and not Routers with ADSL modem. when connecting a router to a router - the one that is connecting you to the internet needs DHCP turned on because it is the one that will be giving you IPs and Gateway settings - the other router such as wireless router after setting it up needs its DHCP turned off - other wise you will have 2 routers trying to do the same thing with ip's and gateways. And you should never connect a modem router to the WAN port as it is a modem router and NOT just a DSL-modem. The WAN port is intended for DSL-modems only. Not only consumers but also many technicians make that mistake
all you have to do is, take the wireless modem and check if there ports at the back for connecting the ethernet to the modem(mostly it will be there).you can refer the manual of the wireless modem to connect the modem to your acer(i.e the connections of cables)in a step by step process.i am telling this since you have not specified your modem's manfacturer and model no. you have to the install the software from the installation cd of the modem in your laptop.
the defaualt connection will be to connect the phone's ethernet cord to the main input of the modem(if you are using the phone for internet). and the power adapter in the nearby small slot.
I think the modem that you have is a type one.
which can only be connected using the ehternet cable .
please go to your nearest bsnl divisional and center and ask for type 2 wireless modem
you have to buy that.
for more info call 1500 customer service that should help you
all the best and thank you
