Don't worry yourself about it . Simply go into your modem settings or your wireless connection settings and secure the logon selection by having to enter a password to use the wireless modem. And don't give anyone the password !!!!!

How do i use internet on my smart tv

There are two possible ways. Use your laptop and connect it to the TV so that the TV displays the Internet, or use a device from to hook the Internet up directly to the Internet. The first is great if you use a wireless mouse and keyboard. The second makes the Internet much harder to use as they till insist you use a "remote" to move around....I hate it!.

The device is around $35.00 while a cable to hook up your laptop video port is about $15.00. Of course, if you are using you laptop to cruise the Internet on your can't use it to cruise the Internet at your there is that downside to be considered.

good luck

Need to connect laptop the inyternet

if you have a laptop the drivers should already be installed depending on the internet that you are trying to hook up to you may need a security code if its your own internet service and you dont have security set up on the wireless router it should connect I could be wrong but I think all laptops are wireless capable if not you will need a wireless card instaled in the laptop and the drivers would be installed with the wireless card unless the drivers were uninstalled then you would have to find out what wireless card you have and look for drivers for it

How to connect my device to pre-existing cable/computer/phone services

Unless I'm missing something, I doubt you will be able to use your new tablet as a phone. I have had 2 tablets, and although I had to get a phone number for it to activate it, there is no phone capability.
As to Internet, I assume you already know how to hook up to your wireless modem. If not, I would go to settings, and find your wireless SSID, click it once, and put in your password.

Wireless router connection problems

That is very possible. I would reset the router by reset switch on back. Also both routers will tend to build up a static charge loosing the connection. You can unplug it for 10 seconds and replug in.

I would also try setting up new home network using automatic settings.

I can't hook my computer up to my phone line for internet. I have my router and another desktop hooked up to the phone line through the router.

That modem is in itself a router. However it only has one Ethernet port and no means of broadcasting a wireless Internet Signal which makes its function of a Router somewhat useless. What you need a(n) (wireless) access point. The Access Point will give you more Ethernet slots allowing more computers to be connected to the modem/router via CAT5 (Ethernet) cables. Depending on if you get a Wireless access point or not you might also be capable of using a wireless adapter to connect to the 2wire and get Internet access.

Let me know if I need to clarify any of the points above or if I can assist you further.

Connection drop-outs

Is your laptop wireless adapter a compatable brand. It doesn't necessarily mean the router is bad, you may even be getting RADIO interference from a cordlees or a cell phone in it's path. Do you have the capability to plug a cat-5 cable directly into your laptop from the router when you lose wireless? Check the wireless channels and see about changing the channel on your cordless phone too. May not work, just a hunch.

Good Luck
