Question about Computers & Internet

2 Answers

My son plugged in your AC adaptor Model AD 126 when we got Verizon DSL and he put the modem in my room. Cords from that modem go to my computer and to 2 other computers elsewhere in the house. The adaptor is plugged into a power bar plugged into a wall outlet. That same outlet has another power bar which has plugs for tv, Dish Satellite box, a lamp and a base for a portable phone. I just noticed that the adaptor feels hot to the touch. Is this normal or do we have too many things using the same double outlet on that wall?

Too much things is connected thru that wall. The outlet is being use to pull more current that its normal use or that it can handle hence running different ports hot which will cause problems in the near. Somthing will get too much current & blow up !

Recommend that you chose a outlet for the adapter.

If it's a broadband modem (cable or dsl) reboot the modem. Also look for diagnostic lights on the modem, they will give an indication if the modem is working properly. If after rebooting the modem, you are still getting trouble lights, contact the isp provider and explain your modem is no longer working. Most isp's replace faulty modems at no charge.

I bet you are using the phone modem that canme in your machine. You need to connect the Network card ( Ethernet Card) and make sure the drivers are working. Find it is System, Hardware, device manager, look for ethernet.
Connection icon and see if the netcard driver is installed.Connect the cat5 cable that was sent to you with the DSL modem box. It chould be a yellow cable... It only fits one way and in a maked plug on the DSL modem and into the network card in the computer. Everything there after should go automatically.

Compaq SR1720NZ to wireless?


i believe the simplest way to do this is to buy a external USB wireless adaptor for your computer. thats saying that your dsl modem has a wireless signal being broadcasted already . if you dont have wireless built into your DSL or Cable modem, you will also need a wireless capable router to send it to your computer...
keep in mind that the wireless external network adapter could easily be used with ANY computer to connect wirelessly, so it's not limmitted to just your current hardware.

Connecting a router


To connect more than one computer to same network, you need to use a router. Two modems will not work on same network.
My suggestion:
Buy a wireless modem router for cable broadband (and eventually a wireless network card for the other computer.
Here is an example: Linksys BEFW11S4 Wireless-B 4-Port Cable/DSL
Ask retailer to get right model for your broadband.
Connect the remote computer with wireless.
