    Are you still using your desktop? How are you trying to connect to the internet with your laptop? Will you have them both both connected at the same time?

Do you have a router set up? If not two things you can do:

1) Buy and setup wireless router wired with desktop and wireless with laptop.

OR

2) Remove network cable from back of Desktop and plug into laptop each time you want to use Internet. Cheaper option but more hassle to switch back and forth.

Windows Networking Issue


FIOS and DSL use different modems and or gateway devices. Sounds like you were using a DSL gateway device with networking setup and when you moved to FIOS, the tech did not duplicate your network on your new FIOS gateway. OR you had a 3rd party router e.g. Linksys that was removed from the setup when FIOS was installed.
Either way, Verizon is who you should contact. Just tell them your network went down after you moved from DSL to FIOS. Dont mention Microsoft or Livewebtv.

Lost internet connection,verizon guess was the card was bad


First thing are all the micro-filters installed and in the correct direction? If they are then it sounds like your DSL signal is borderline and when the phone rings it is getting knocked out. If that is the case you will need a tech to come out and test the line.

Wireless internet connection


Hi there I would tell you why:
1) your DSL speed band only 1.5M and the upload could be lower then 256K speed. that is not avalible to get good condition for more laptop wireless online at same time
2) other thing, your laptop wieless online in your router situation that depends on the laptop wireless card type, high level (faster)card will get more speed band and aganst other laptop.
so you could not setting any more to get improved.
hope help you something fixed, please take a rating let me know how much helped you thanks! keep in touch your question

Cannot connect to my Sony laptop with Windows vista


Hmm..the best way I can think of here is to get both Techs on the same line so that they can discuss what the problem really is. I've tried this before and I have to admit. Things worked out very well, It seems a device built in my laptop was not running properly, so I had to install it again, it's called the NIC or Network Interface Card and it's the device that allows your laptop to communicate with the modem.
Regarding the lights in your modem. The DSL light should always be Steady Green, that means that your modem is in Sync with the network. If it's blinking, check all connections, make sure every physical connection is connected properly, if the dsl light is still blinking, that's a network problem already and you should call Verizon so that they can send a tech to fix it.

Sometimes it's difficult to isolate the problem for an internet connection, but to make it clearer for you and anyone else with the same issue. The modem is the central part of the connection. It's a verizon problem if the problem is the connection of the modem to the central office, and you can check it with the DSL light and Internet light.

It can either be a Verizon Problem or a Modem to PC problem, if the problem is between the modem to the pc. Possible Scenarios here are: The modem is defective, the NIC is defective, the Ethernet Cable is defective.
The first is a verizon problem only if the modem is still covered by warranty, if the modem is qualified for a DSP or a Device Service Plan, then that's good, you don't need to buy a new modem anymore. The second and third issue is a physical problem with the devices already and you'll need to have your pc fixed.

Try and isolate the issue, and if you can, let me know and I'll let you know what you can do to fix your problem.

PCMCIA Verizon BroadBand Internet PC Card


You COULD do it, but man.

you are gonna be charged for each MB used, and honestly, it would be a terribly impractical approach.

Just to humor you, you'd do it as such.

Set up your laptop to run all the time. Have the Verizon card plugged in, and always active, and set to never drop connection. You'll now need a crossover cable, and you'll run the rj45 crossover from the ethernet on your laptop to the WAN port on your router. You'll then need to bridge the connections. Some versions of Windows support internet connection sharing; effectively doing the same thing. Now, you should have active internet.

Now, you're going to be charged per MB, you're gonna have a SLOW SLOW SLOW SLOW connection, and you should expect $1000 phone bills monthly.

Cannot Network printers on FIOS system


If both computers are connected to the router. Try turning off the firewall on both computers first. normally its firewalls blocking file and printer sharing that block the connection.

Getting online


The phone jack on your laptop is used for Dial-up only, i.e.… AOL, EarthLink, etc….
If you’re trying to connect to the internet via Verizon DSL, then you need to connect to a DSL modem just like your PC is. On your laptop you’ll find another jack similar to a phone jack but a little bit wider. This is a 10/100 Base T connection used for Broadband or Hi-speed internet that you will use to connect to your DSL. If you want, you can take the internet cable from the back of your PC and try plugging it in to your laptop. You will need to power OFF and ON the DSL modem you that it will search for the IP (internet protocol) address of your laptop.
Hope this helps. If you have any other questions please contact me.
