Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

My brother in law has just purchsed an Acer Aspire 5100 desktop. Coming with barely no instructions, we findly got the wireless keyboard and mouse connected, but haven't a clue as to how to connect to the wireless internet. He wants to use Netzero as his ISP; there is no broadband or highspeed connection in his area. Can you assist him. Glen_Glascoe

Hi there Loisy17a/Glen,
To setup a wireless network you will need a wireless router that can also use a standard phone line. (Dial-up).

Help understanding wireless & how to setup. How to setup dial-up. There is no way to walk you through this but the manual that will come with the wireless router will have instructions & phone support to help. NetZero's support is less than Zero. They will blame your PC to your telephone line as a problem. (Good luck)!

Nope.. send back... if it's refurb.. should be under warranty. They possibly forgot to reconnect keyboard and mouse cables under the keyboard.
