Many wireless routers also come with wired connections. If you can locate your new desktop near the wireless router you can connect to the router using a patch cable (similar to a large phone cord). However, if you do not want to do this, you will need a wireless adapter for your new computer. The adapter should be the same brand as the router to ensure compatibility.

Need my laptop to communicate wireless to printer


If the printer does not have a built-in network card/print server then there is a couple of ways to do this.
If you have a desktop computer connected to the wireless router with a LAN cable, then connect the printer to the desktop computer and make this printer a shared printer on your network. This means that the desktop computer and printer needs to be on when you want to print from the laptop.
The other way is to purchase a print server, connect the printer to the print server and connect the print server with a LAN cable to the Wireless router.
If you don't have sufficient network ports on the wireless router then you need to purchase a hub. Then connect the hub and wireless router with a LAN cable and then the print server to the hub and other computers to the hub.
Setting up the wireless printing will depend upon which method you want to adopt and I can advise you when further when you are ready.

If you are hardly doesn't connect even your wireless station is been detected why not try to set your settings manually in your wireless card.

This is when you are behind a router.

Goto Network and sharing center. Click on Manage Wireless Network. Click on Adapter properties. Click Internet Protocol version 4. Click properties, then set the ipaddress of your laptop it doesn't have to be identical to any of your existing connection, your subnet, default gateway. And also input your IP DNS.

Cant connect to wireles network . will not find network. not sure if equipprd with wireless adaptor


I don't think it has a wireless adapter as standard, you can check by doing this:

Right click on My Computer and chose Properties.
Click on Hardware and then Device Manager. This lists all the Hardware in your PC.
Next double click on Network Adapters.
If there is a wireless card listed here then you will be be able to connect to a wireless network. If not then you'll have to purchase one from a PC shop.

NETGEAR Wireless G USB Adaptor Problems


I contacted Bigpond after my whole internet collapsed due to my amature abilities in fixing the internet. >_<" yet they fixed my internet connection by disconnecting my current (DLINK DIR-300) router from the network. hmmmm... the technician also confirmed that my current broadband modem (2WIRE 2071-A) isnt capable of supplying a shared connection to more than one computer!! she also directed me towards a modem with an inbuilt wifi router that "supposedly" is the best option right now. (2701HGV-W) I'm a bit shaky and the stupid NETGEAR adaptor problem still exists - im willing to buy the new modem if its guaranteed to abolish this problem and give me a better internet wise outlook - please any suggestions will be appreiciated =)

I have a Toshiba laptop that won't connect to my home wireless system, after I took it to college and used the wireless system there


Does your laptop even see the network? If any security has been set up on your wireless router, you'll have to set up a new wireless connection on your computer. The easiest way to find the settings (SSID, encryption, password) is to look under the wireless network properties of a computer you already have running on the wireless network.

Trying to connect desk top computer and lap top computer


There is only two ways to possibly connect both the desktop and the laptop in the network. That is to purchase a router so you can connect them both or a route with a wireless and then the laptop (Which most new ones have a wireless capability installed) can connect wireless from anywhere in the home. If you already have a Cable or DSL Modem it may have a wireless capability. Otherwise you would have to get a wireless modem. Hope this helps. Bud

Connectioning a second pc on another level in my home


hi
I think you will need one "Switch" (name of device - which is used to provide connections for more than 5 computers at a time)

So in the market there are variety of switches available like 5 port switch (for 5 computers) 8 port switch (for 8 computers) like wise.

So you need to purchase switch.

You can use alternate for switch is HUB (same as above)

So once you are done with that, let me know so that we can proceed further with configuration of you network (for 3 computers)
