Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

I have just connected to SKY Broadband. Everything works O.K. except that I can't get my laptop to go wireless on their system. They told me that I need to ask you to modify the connect options to include Security type WPA PSK with this also as the Encryption code optionl box, or with a Disable facility in the Encryption box. This is apparently what their router needs to recognise. Hope thi8s makes sense to you!

We have BT broadband. When we occasionally have to reset the router, everything except the 2 Dell Dimension 5150 desktops works via wireless. They refuse to reconnect. All the other Desktops / laptops work...


Not sure exactly what your hardware setup is, but I would reboot the broadband router, then reboot the wireless router. Everything should come up clean, but give it at least 5 min. To help connect after reboots, you can choose "repair" from the wireless icon in the system tray (XP?) or renew your IP address. Start --> Run... and type ipconfig /renew

Hope this helps!
If so, please leave a rating!

How do I connect my sky broadband to a second laptop which I have just purhased


are you trying to connect wireless or cabled?
Wireless should be easy, just turn on the wireless device (if its built in) normally by pressing a Fn key and an F key marked with an antenna picture. Then connect to you Sky router after the wireless scan (the number and network key are printed on your router base)
You should just be able to plug an RJ45 network lead into your laptop and it should use DCHP to work (Plug and play).

Losing Wireless Connectivety, when charging.


Try to plug in the power cable alone, do it without the battery and see if your wireless works.  If your wireless works without the battery, and works with the cable alone it may be a battery conductivity problem.

How do i configure my Belkin router to work with Sky broadband?


I'm not into hacking what I cannot find on ISP's sites

From what I can gather from the Sky Broadband site reading the manual installation procedures -- the process is pretty much automatic when it comes to installing their equipment leaving no clues as to how they configure it. What is the model if the Belkin router? Options probably exist to attach your device to theirs either as a router (establishing a second network behind theirs) or an access point joining as a member of their network - meaning there would would be two wireless networks in either case in the house (as there are no indications I have found on the site that the provided the sky router can be configured in any way such as turning off wireless). At least according to the documentation the sky router's wireless is running WPA-PSK security / encryption which is good -- and the documentation for attaching non-sky wireless adapters appears to be documented here.

My Wireless internet card don't work


i think you are a little confused, your laptop may have a wireless card internally, but you need a wireless broadband or cable router for the wireless adapter to pick up a signal.

A fax modem cannot be wireless and cannot be broadband as you cannot fax using a broadband connection.


Assuming you have a broadband connection you will need a wireless modem/ router or roter connected to a broadband modem, not a standard 56k dialup modem as they aren't wireless or broadband.
