There is a wireless button on your keybord platform area. Have you tried pushing it? It should have a little upright stick with commas on either side on the button (to look like a wireless signsl tower)?

When i try to connect to the internet on my acer 5610z computer i get the mesage cannot find proxy server. calledmy local provider and they cold not help said it was a problem with the computer. please...


If you have a modem, you must call thelocal server phone.
If you use a router, you must connect it to computer via ethernet cable.
If you got a wifi router, they use a password, must to know it and input it. If not connect is possible that wifi lan emitter is off. Put it ON.

Aspire 5315 I am having trouble with connecting to wireless network. The task bar shows excellent signal strength but I can't open the browser. If I diagnose problem I get the following error...


You probably have a problem with your router, or cable modem. Try resetting the router and cable modem. To do this unplug the cable modem for ten seconds, then the router for ten seconds. Plug in the router first wait till all the lights except for the ONLINE light are solid flashing then plug in the cable modem and wait for about 30 seconds and try again.

Acer aspire 7520 cant connect to LAN ( local only)


Hardwired to modem or router?
Router = check connection to router
(had a router die on me last fall - not AC supply)
IP should be 192.168.1.xx or 192.168.2.xx
(is standard)
Reset Router = reset hole on back - hold for 10 sec
Modem= same directions as router
(most modems work like single port routers)
(do reset of cable modem, I've had that prob too)
Using PPOE connection = check log on info
Took most of my home network apart to find it was the modem causing the problem - should've started there.

Trouble connecting netgear wireless router to rca modem DCM425


First try connection the Yellow ethernet cable from the rca modem to your computer's network connection. If you get a connection this way, then your modem will work with a ethernet cable. If not, then call Comcast for help. The modem ethernet out to computer port must be connected to the wan line of the router. Then you can connect an ethernet cable from your computer network connection to one of the 4 ports of the router. For wireless connections you must set up the router and wireless adaptor with the same settings to connect. Follow the routers directions.
Good Luck

Adding laptop to home system through Belkin59G .


Good Day!

I believe you are trying to connect wirelessly using your laptop to your wireless router(Belkin 59G). Try to hook it up first on your computer and check if you can go online.

If yes, then that's the time you go to the router's set up page and check the wireless security of the router so that you can connect wirelessly.

If not, then you have to reconfigure the router and the modem. If your internet service provider is cable you can just turn off the router then the modem and waitfor 5 seconds. Turn on the modem, wait for the lights to turn on then the router. After that, check if the computer will be able to go online when connected directly to the router.

Cannot get through internet via ethernet, I Appreciate your help.


You didn't state what kind of net connection you are using, dial-up, cable, sattelite.
If, for instance, you have cable, is the modem connected directly to one computer, or several, via router and ifso on the router is it "wireless" or cable connected?

If you are using anything OTHER THAN dial-up, I recommend, that you unplug the router AND modem, look for "resets" on both, sometimes the reset will look like a small resessed pin that must be pushed on with a pen or toothpick.(hold down for 30 seconds) Leave them unplugged...I would advise 5 minutes, then reconnect cables and power supplys and try again.

If none of this works and you have had electrical storms,(and sometimes wind damages cable if pole mounted) you may have surge-damaged routers/ and or modems. I usually have to reset mine after every lighting storm, and had to replace a damaged router twice. Sadly on another note, I would not recommend vista to anyone, I would however recommend XP media center for computers that have specs for it.
Hope this will help.
