Go to this link and enter your SNID, should be on the bottom. Select Windows XP and download the lan and wlan drivers. Of course you will have to do this on a computer that connects to the internet. Copy the drivers to a usb drive and install on the laptop.

I have a Toshiba Satellite L500 with Win7 and cannot connect to the internet via high speed modem LAN cable. Internet works on my other computer using the same LAN connection, but it is running XP. I


So is your Modem from a phone company like AT&T? It sounds like it is because phone companies use what is called PPOE which is where the modem is configured with a userid and password to get out to the internet.

Cable providers use DHCP and don't require a userid and password.

If your other computer works using the network cable but your toshiba won't work using the same network cable, I think the phone company has configured your modem to only look at and accept your other computer. You can tell the modem to use specific MAC addresses which are unique to every device that attaches to the internet. You want your modem set up to use a range of addresses, not a specific one.

Windows XP Network Connection HELP!


You need to call ComCast and have them walk you through the Internet Connection Wizard. It is rather easy, but it requires some specific information that they'll have.

Cannot connect to the internet


Are you running the setup disc provided by comcast to get your email setup?

If you are , you do not really need that disc as it provides useless and often outdated junk on the disc. You should be able to surf the internet by plugging in your Ethernet Cord into the laptop with no problem.

On the issue of the Comcast user name and password, this was originally used at the original configuration of the modem when it is wallgardened.

You can always call Comcast and have then activate the modem for you. You'll need the Mac address at the bottom of your modem to activate it over the phone.

Online Activation usually requires your customer account number. But since it looks like you do not have this data, you will need to call them directly.

Wireless does not show up in Network Connections


Did you try - after switching on the "antenna switch" or WiFi hardware - to "Enable" the WiFi adapter, under (XP) Start - Settings - Network Connections - LAN or High-Speed Internet - Wireless Network Connection? (select, right click and select Enable)?

p.s. Once your WiFi hardware is recognized (by Win XP) there is (should be) always a "Wireless Network Connection" in your Network Connections, enabled or disabled, active or not.
