I need a ips address as my computer won't connect to the internext


Your modem/router should provide you with an ip address automatically. Otherwise(Im assuming that you are running Windows XP) go to Start>control pane>Network Connections and right click on your Local Area Connection. Click on properties and make sure your computer is set to receive configuration from modem/router automatically.

My new pc Dell Inspiron desktop has no modem built in for dial-up internet connection. Im currently subscribing to a dial-up service provider on another pc, how do I connect to the same dial-up service...


You have to configure Internet Connections Sharing on the PC which has a dial-up service.
1. Click Start - Settings - Control Panel - Network Connections, right click on dial-up.
2. Clik on Properties, click on Advanced tab.
3. Under Internet Connection Sharing, select the Allow other network users to connect through this computer's Internet connection check box

After that you must connect the other pc to this one via network cable.
If you don'y have network adapters you have to buy them.

Cannot connect to internet. I had internet connection over telephone modem before Hard drive crashed. I replaced HD and could not connect to internet. Dell was no help at all. I signed up for Verizon DSL...


I bet you are using the phone modem that canme in your machine. You need to connect the Network card ( Ethernet Card) and make sure the drivers are working. Find it is System, Hardware, device manager, look for ethernet.
Connection icon and see if the netcard driver is installed.Connect the cat5 cable that was sent to you with the DSL modem box. It chould be a yellow cable... It only fits one way and in a maked plug on the DSL modem and into the network card in the computer. Everything there after should go automatically.
