I got a new computer. We went from Dial-Up to Verizon FIOS. I would like to use the old one to access the internet in another room, however the CD/DVD player is broken on it, so the installation drive tha went with the hardware will not work. I tried using a flash drive to copy it, but it will not install. Help.

I had this problem or similar. Verizon (in New England area) upgraded my speed to 7MPS Download and 1MBS upload. It was slower than the old speed. I called in Verizon and after a lot of back and forth - well, to be fair, they were good - it turns out that the router on their site was old. They unplugged us from it and put us on a newer faster router and Voila! Worth a shot.

You connect to a router either wirelessly or via ethernet or via USB. There is another piece you need, you need a connection, DSL, FIOS or Cable. Do you have a modem?
If you have a moden, you connect your router to the modem by the method of your choice (Ethernete or USB or wireless). Then you connect your computer to your router via the method of your choice. I presume you have more than one cocmputer? You dont really need a router UNLESS you cannot put your computer near your router AND/OR you have multiple computers you want to network to your connection.
Sometehing else, is your computer equipped for wireless? or do you have a ethernet card called a NIC (Network Interface Card) and your operating system ... is it wireless able?
Anything is possible but it would take a lot of work to jam wireless signals. As a communications company, Verizon, if caught would be in hot water with the FCC. I have an idea. Are you able to change channels on your wireless and try it. Also, is there anyway you could try a different wireless router? If FIOS is coming in, there may be maintenance changes in the infrastructure that effect your internet performance.
Sounds like you need to configure the PC's USB wireless adaptor. The settings must be the same as the router. If you use a WEP password on the other connections then you need to have the same password on the USB wireless adaptor.
After my second call to Actiontec ended with the help desh hanging up on me, Actiontec did respond to an emailed plea for help and prompty provided a complex script which they labeled confidential to address this problem. The bottom line seems to be Verizon either installed hardware that is incompatable with an Exchange server or they did not configure the insallation correctly. In so many words, Actiontec feels it is a Verizon problem. I wish me luck in getting to the right place to deal with that, even though I am a Verizon stockholder.
There is no way a wirless or brodband roter will work for any dial up conecsions only will work for hugh speed internet or DSL internet. If you are chosing to upgrade lock at the chosis verizon has. Just go to www.verizon.com to see if you are elagable. They haves some very low cost deals and if it is ordered online you get a discount,
To connect to the router wirelessly using a Windows XP, right click on the wireless network connection icon on the lower right corner of the screen and choose view available wireless networks. Select your existing network and click on the connect button. If you are using Vista, go to network and sharing center of your control panel then select connect to a network. If you still having problems, please provide details of the problem like your Internet service provider and if there are already other computers online with your WRT54G2.
