Connect to wifi


Your desktop may already enjoy a wired broadband Internet connection, but a Wi-Fi connection will afford you greater latitude in Internet use.
Wires will not be necessary, so you can establish your PC in any room or area of your home or office and still stay connected to the Internet.
Fortunately, you only need a wireless router, broadband modem, and ethernet cable to make this Wi-Fi connection.

Disconnect your modem from the wall socket it's plugged into.
Connect the ethernet cable to the back of the modem.
There is a clearly marked ethernet port here.
This port will appear to be an oversized telephone jack.
Connect the other end of the ethernet cable to the ethernet port on the back of the wireless router.
This port will look exactly the same as the one on the rear of the modem.
Plug the broadband modem back up to the wall socket and wait for it to power on, initialize and detect its new connection to the wireless router.
Locate the manual that shipped with your wireless router.
Find the URL, or web address, that is contained within the pages of this manual.
This special web address is used to set up your router's network and security permissions.
Also, be sure to locate the default password provided within the pages of the manual.
Enter the URL into your web browser and allow the page to load.
When prompted, enter the password that you found within the instruction manual.
Begin setting up your new wireless network.
You will be asked for an "SSID," which is just a moniker for your new network.
This will be the name seen when the network is listed in an available network list.
Choose whatever name you like.
Select a password for your new network.
While encrypting your network is optional, it is highly recommended.
Along with the password, choose "WPA" security encryption.
"WEP" will also be an option but it is an older security protocol that is technologically inferior to WPA.
Click "Apply" to save your changes.
Click on the wireless icon on the right-hand side of the bottom toolbar on your PC's desktop. Select your network's SSID from the drop-down list.
Enter the password you chose for your network.
You will now be connected to WiFi Internet on your PC desktop and free to browse the Web.

I have a strong connection but limited or no connectivity with my wireless router. I clicked on repair and it cannot be completed due to: renewing your IP address.


have you tried:
  • unpluging your router, waiting a few minutes (5) pluging it back in? sometime routers will need to be reset once in awhile.
  • have you checked the installation of your net-card? maby pull it and try a diffrent port.
  • contacting your ISP? it may be a networking problem up the road.
  • possibly try setting your network to a private setting. or making sure your network detection setting is turned on. you can find these options in your network and sharing folder.
I hope these options can lead the way to fixing your problem.

Can i connet my cable network from my p.c to my new macbook


If you have two Rj45's in your PC you can. Cable is connected to your cable modem. Than another cable called a Rj45 (Looks link a over sized telephone jack), connects from the modem to your PC. The simplest & cheepest way would be to buy a splitter for the Rj45 cable. (A lot less money than buying a second network card. Take a look at the link.(Click it once).
http://www.sfcable.com/cable/p/102101.html
You will also need another Rj45 cable to go to your macbook.
http://www.csncables.com/Ethernet-Cables-C9196.html

And lastly, if you want to be able to sit any where in your home & still maintain an internet connection you can buy a wireless router. If your mac has a built in wireless network card.
This is pretty cheep compaired to other wireless routers around.

What are the step for setting up you computers to a network using a Linksys router. I have a 2 PC's and a laptop that I would linke to net work together. My first computer is connect to the Wireless-B...


Hi Ed, if your using windows you can open network connections & run network setup wizard. Follow the instruction for a home network for the wireless PC's & notebooks. Once the network is setup for all PC's than you can install the printer cd software in the PC's that you want to access the printer. Each PC & notebook will have access to the printer through the network.
The PC that that is connected to the printer needs to be shared.
Open printers and Faxes. Right click once on the printer & left click sharing. Agai follow the instructions.
Lastly,I strongly suggest you setup security for your wireless. If you do not anyone close can tap into your network connection. Follow linksys instruction to setup security. If you run into a problem you can call linksys for free advise from a pro. Their number is listed in the manual.

Emachine model t3302 ethernet card


This is how the wireless world works. You buy a wireless router with a four port switch. Your DSL or cable connects to that. A cable called a Rj45 connects the DSL or cable to the back of the wireless router. You also buy a wireless network card for your PC. After running the software for the router & the wireless nic card including setting up a home network through windows your daughter will be able to connect that computer to your network from any room in the house. Below is a link to a wireless router:

You can connect up to four computers to the wirless router. A computer that does not connect to the router by a Rj45 must use a wireless network card. Linksys WMP54G Wireless-G PCI Adapter Retail: http://www.zipzoomfly.com/jsp/ProductDetail.jsp?ProductCode=252286
As you will see there is a big differance between a NIC card & a wireless card.
