I have installed Verizon DSL service which includes a wireless router.
I have had no luck getting my dv 1000 laptop to find this network.
My son's laptop picks up the signal instantly.
I know as of a year ago i could pick up wireless at any motel offering the service.
Could there be a settings problem within the laptop?

First you need to decide what type of broadband and Internet service you require and these are - 1. DSL that uses your existing telephone line. 2. Cable that uses a cable service and can include a cable TV service. 3. A wireless 3G network uses the mobile/cell phone network and can be separate or combine with your cell phone account. This type of Internet connection uses an USB wireless device shaped like an USB memory stick. Note - Combined services generally offer discount pricing and may include a modem/wireless router.
If you use a wireless router with the DSL or Cable Internet service then your laptop with a wireless card can then connect to the Internet. You can also connect to a free WiFi hot spots like McDonalds, Star Bucks, the Airport etc. using the wireless card in your laptop. If you use the wireless 3G wireless broadband service, then you can access the Internet anywhere where your ISP has 3G wireless coverage. You need to check the service coverage area where you need Internet service. Once you decide what type of broadband your require, then you need to check with the various Internet Service providers to see if they can offer and the cost of the various plans. Note the download limits and the associated additional costs if you exceed the monthly download limits. Once you sign up with a Internet Service provider, their documentation will include setting up instructions and/or installation CD.
FIOS and DSL use different modems and or gateway devices. Sounds like you were using a DSL gateway device with networking setup and when you moved to FIOS, the tech did not duplicate your network on your new FIOS gateway. OR you had a 3rd party router e.g. Linksys that was removed from the setup when FIOS was installed.
Either way, Verizon is who you should contact. Just tell them your network went down after you moved from DSL to FIOS. Dont mention Microsoft or Livewebtv.
pc wireless adapter will work then if you have also another network like wireless router or another PC or Laptop with wireless adapter, if your going to use this wireless adapter network in pc to pc is you are going to setup by adhoc to adhoc connection, itself detect for sharing a network without any router needed, but if you do such simple network connection use wireless router, its definitely work easily. Aumatomaticall detect wireless router on your wireless adapter network.. Good luck!
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.
Having your laptop sitting next to your desktop will not let your laptop connect to the DSL link.
You need what's called a Wireless Router. (assuming your laptop has a wireless adapter, if not you'll need a network cable for that.
1. Go to the store, buy a wireless router 2. install router in between your DSL modem and the computer. 3. Plug the WAN port into the DSL modem (cable is usually included with the router) 4. Plug the desktop into the back of one of the ports of the wireless router 5. Run the setup disk 6. For manual configuration of the router you can usually go to: 192.168.0.1 or 192.168.1.1 or 192.168.2.1 depending on the brand) 7. If you don't know anything about networking, let the install disk do all the work. 8. Follow the instructions on what it tells you your configuration is for your wireless network. 9. Go to your laptop, apply said instructions. 10. ??? 11. Profit.
You'll need to purchase a wireless router first.. Your DSL( phone) line will plug into that ( make sure you tell the sales person what you are trying to do and who your internet provider is" verizon") and they should be able to assist you in selecting the right router. Once you have a wireless router operational, follow the directions that came with your laptop as well as the router for setting up a wireless network in your home..
If this laptop has a wireless switch, make sure it's on. Did you get the wireless hub? Wireless is controlled by the wireless zero service, which should turn on automatically when your adapter is detected. You can turn it on manually in Control Panel/Admin Tools/Services
