Hi,

To my knowledge, the Linksys BEFSR81 originally came with a quick install/set-up CD. Pls reconnect your modem and PC as originally hooked before the Linksys BEFSR81 was installed and verify that you can connect to the internet. Upon verification of Internet connectivity, pop in the CD, follow on-screen instructions and only hook up the router when instructed to do so.

Should for some reason the CD is not available or you can not run the install/set-up wizard, pls postback.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back as requested, how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

How to connect tv to internet for netflix


First, I am assuming that you have the internet connected at your house and I am assuming that you have a wireless access point or a router with Ethernet connections on it. If you do not have these, then you cannot connect to the internet. On most smart TV's they have a "settings" or similarly named menu item, where you can connect to your home wireless system. Select this and then scroll down the menu until you fine something that says internet or wireless or even quick setup. From there you just select wireless, type in your access password and it should work. All this will be explained in the owners manual for your smart TV.

Connecting LC-52LE810UN to internet


Connecting to the Internet
To connect your TV to the Internet, you must have a broadband Internet connection.
Use an ETHERNET cable (commercially available) to connect the ETHERNET terminal on the TV to your
broadband router (commercially available).
If you do not have a broadband Internet connection, consult the store where you purchased your TV or ask your
Internet service provider or telephone company.

you need to have a cable connected to the ETHERNET port and then you will get more options. You need to connect it to your router ports. hopefully you have DHCP enabled on the router and then all will program automatically

I got a Dell desktop computer from a friend who bought it new. It only has a dial up connection so I got it hooked up. Problem that I have is it won't dial out to connect to the internet. Ralphie


Hi dlwbaw

You have to make a new connection.
Go to "Control Panel", find "Network Connections", double click on that, here you choose file (in the menu) and choose "New Connection". Follow the Wizard (choose, new connection to the internet, connection without code/username/password, and normaly people have DSL connections).
Try to connect the pc to the internet now, this should work, if not:
you have to have the setup way from your internet provider, many times they have a manual on the internet. If it is a connection with user name/ code, you have to Edit your friends internet connection (icon on network connections) or make a new connection with this codes.
The codes you get from your internet provider

Some internet providers allow only one computer connected to the internet.

Hope that helps
Have a nice Sunday :O)

I want to connect internet in my pc from my LG GM200


There are two things that you need. 1. A GPRS connection. For this you go to the helpline of AirCel on your phone and have it activated. 2. The CD that must have accompanied the phone. It will have all the drivers that you need. Install them. 3. If the SW that came with the Phone does not create a network connection to connect to the internet, then create an internet connection after connecting the phone thru USB cable. 4. Configure the internet connection and connect.

I AM UNABLE TO ACCESS INTERNET THRU MY HYBRID APPLE MAC DESK TOP-


Go into network set up a shared Internet connection using ICS (Internet Connection Sharing) You can use Internet Connection Sharing (ICS) to share an Internet connection among two or more computers on a network. First, you need one computer, called the host computer, that is connected to the Internet and that has a separate connection to the other computers on your network. You enable ICS on the Internet connection. The other computers on your network then connect to the host computer, and from there to the Internet through the host computer's shared Internet connection.
If your computer is connected to a network, network policy settings might prevent you from completing these steps.
On the host computer (the computer whose Internet connection you plan to share):
  1. ?id=microsoft.windows.resources.shellexecutetopiciconClick to open Network Connections.
  2. Right-click the connection that you want to share, and then click Properties.getcontent.aspx?assetid=18abb370-ac1e-4b6b-b663-e028a75bf05b&documentset=en-us&renderkey=signed1 If you are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.
  3. Click the Sharing tab, and then select the Allow other network users to connect through this computer’s Internet connection check box.

Internet connection sharing


To share an internet connection, you need to have two network connections, one for the internet connection, and another for your network.

If your DSL has a USB connection, plug it into one of your computers and then then go through the network setup wizard, from there it will walk you through sharing an internet connection.  

If all the computers have wireless, you can set up an adhoc network, and share the connection that way.

Honestly, the easiest method would be to go out and buy a router.
