How can i connect my desktop computer to the internet plz i need someone to help


Currently, the most common way to connect a desktop system to the internet, is by using the network jack to connect to a broadband cable modem or DSL modem. To do either you must have the service from either you cable provider or phone company (For DSL) and have the modem device for the service. Fees run $20 to $50 a month depending on speed you subscribe.
You connect the device to the system using a CAT5 network cable to a RJ45 (8 wire telephone type jack). Some Cable/DSL modems also have USB connection capability for the few systems these days that do not have a built in RJ45 connector To use them, you install the associated software, then connect the USB cable when prompted.
If you don't have Cable/DSL then dial up telephone modem is the next option, this requires a telephone modem that has an RJ11c telephone cord jack connection, most current computers only have a telephone modem as an option, but they can still be bought for around $20 and you will require a dial up internet service (Few remain, one is Netzero in the USA)

A cable is not plugged into the network Adapter "Local Area onnection" where is the local area connection suppose to go?


This just means, that you don;t have a phone line, or a RJ45 line
plugged into the computer.

If you have a cable modem, then a line (rj45) runs from the modem
to the Ethernet port in the back of the computer.

You need to plug something in or us wireless to get on to the internet.

So it depends on what service you have depends on what you plug it.

If you need anymore help just post back, let us know what service you use.

Cable,phone, satellite.

Acer aspire 9410, cannot connect to the internet using dial-up


You have two different devices here. A modem and a wireless network adapter. Two totally different devices. It sounds like the modem quit working but the wireless network adapter still functions. I'm assuming that the modem is built it. If you absolutely have to have it you could buy a PCMCIA modem if your laptop has a PCMCIA slot to plug it into. You could also have a corrupted modem driver.

Can i use my nokia 6030 as modem if yes then how


First, plug the phone into your computer using an USB data cable. Windows knows you just plugged in something new and wants to know what it is, so the Add New Hardware wizard appears, it wants drivers if you don't have em, Google up the drivers. Next you'll need connection software provided by your carrier. If you don't have connection software or you're on a Mac (and the software isn't available for you), simply enter the phone number for your mobile phone's network in the modem's dial up properties. check with your provider for your details if you've got a data plan.
Alternately, you can dial into an AOL or NetZero or Earthlink account as well for regular old 56k dialup speeds.

Wanting wireless hookup


1)Prepare your modem. Unplug the modem's power cord and place the wireless router unit next to the modem. If the router has antennas, make sure they are raised to their full upright position.
2)Reassign your networking cable. Unplug the cable currently connected from your computer to your modem and plug it into the port located in the wireless router. This port is usually colored blue.
3)Connect the router and the modem. Use the networking cable that came with your wireless router to connect the modem and router unit. The router port is typically colored in green.
4)Start up your modem. Plug in the modem's power cord and wait 1-2 minutes while it configures its settings and prepares to connect to the Internet.5
5)Start up the wireless router. Plug the wireless router's power cord into an outlet and wait 1-2 minutes to get it started. The router is ready when the 'wired computers' and 'modem' icons light up. These logos or icons vary by make and model of your router so consult the owner's manual if needed.6
6)Insert your installation CD. Use the wizard or assistant to check the configurations of your computer settings and launch your wirelessnetwork clip_image001.gif
Things You’ll Need:
  • Wireless Router unit
  • Networking cable (comes with router unit)
  • Installation CD
  • Modem
  • Modem power cord

Bought a new computer with vista instead of XP and cannot connect to internet via the ethernet line from my cable modem. what is the secret? Usually plugging it in is enough when I have moved or changed...


Yes! plugging it in on the Ethernet cable on the modem to the computer should get you online. If your not able to get online, you may want to check the following:

1. Make sure that the Ethernet adapter on the computer is enabled. If you can't find the Local Area Connection icon in your Network connections (control panel\network and sharing center), check if the network adapter is properly installed.

2. Some cable service providers require the MAC/Physical address of the Computer to get it online through the modem. If the old computer is working with the modem, you may want to contact your ISP and ask their assistance in getting you online using your new computer.

Use a wired router for dial-up (NETZERO) connection..


You want to use a LAN with a router that uses a dial-up as a backbone internet connection for your LAN.
This is absolutely possible.

If you just want to share the connection that one computer has, and dont want to buy a router that has a built-in modem, try this

If you are running windows, There is a feature called Internet Connection Sharing (ICS.) It will share the dialup across the network.

Just 1 hookup the router and all the pcs to it. 2 Dialup the machine with the modem. 3 Enable ICS on that machine. 4 Youre LAN is online.

In XP, goto the network connections, and while you have 2 active connections in there (the dialup and the LAN port connected to the router), right click the dialup, goto properties. goto advanced tab, and click on enable ICS.
The other computers should be served IP's automatically and NAT'd out to the internet by the computer running ICS.

(The other computers should be automatically setup to the internet like they should be and connected to the dialup riunning on the ICS (host) computer)

Won't connect to the Internet


If you are using a dialup connection, the ethernet connection would not have anything to do with your problem. Be sure the cable is plugged into the line socket. Take a repular phone and plug it into the telephone socket on the computer and see if you get a dial tone. Be sure you have entered the number correctly including a 1 and area code if required. You may want to call the number your computer is trying to call to see if you hear modem tones ( to be sure the number is correct). If all that is in order, your friends are probably right and your modem is bad. It may be covered under warranty.
