    Same as the person described. I just went from Comcast HS Internet to Verizon Fios. At first they gave me a bad router. Now I have a new router and it worked for ahile.
    The Verizon Tech came out and performed some analysis and says it is the NIC Card. It worked initially and then some how it got into a disabled state and then I needed to enable it. It does this several times a day. Is it the NIC Card??

What toaster001 said is correct. Also, do you have a router? This may also be the cause of your issues. If you have one, try plugging straight into the box (modem) provided by your internet provider. If you don't have the connectivity issue any longer then it may be your router.

Your network card or NIC is located inside your case in one of the PCI slots. It ic possible that your Network interface is built into your motherboard. Easiest way to tell which you have is to look at the back of your P.C. If your Internet line connects to your P.C. up by your usb ports then it's most likely on *********** board. If its lower in one of the the horizontal slots then it a separate card. In either case buying a new card and installing it may fix your problem. If you P.C. is under warranty take it to where you bought it and let them fix it. Installing the card is easy.

How do I hookup a dell inspiron I 6603049


To attach a computer to the internet, you will need to have an internet connection in your home.
Your Dell inspiron desktop does not have a wireless connection card in it, unless you ordered that with your purchase. Unlike laptops, which mostly do have a Wifi card in it, to be more mobile.

After subscribing you will probably get a router to connect to your ISP (Internet Service Provider) something like this, sometimes the antenna's are inside (the antenna is for wireless connections):http://www.dlink.com/-/media/images/Products/DIR/803/DIR803A1ImageHBack.png
In the yellow port comes the internet connection from the modem, in the ports 1,2,3 and 4 you can connect internet capable devices, so also a desktop computer.

Then to get your computer connecting to the router you need to attach a so-called patch cable http://www.computercablestore.com/Certified_Cat_6_Patch_Boo_Blue_catID2175.aspx
to the router and to your computer in the network port: Sometimes the ISP gives one added to the package when you get your router.

Normally after booting up the computer will find the network automatically, else call the helpdesk of your internet provider or ask a computer knowledgable person to help you.

This is a Fibre Glass Modem on the right and next to it a router (left), the router can connect to your computer.

How Do I connect to internet with my desktop without Ethernet cable


To connect wireless to a network ..you need a wireless router or access to a near by one ..and you need to install a wireless card on computer if it has non ..This can be a pci card and you will install it on a pci slot inside and install its driver and after that connect to the network available ..or use a wireless card on usb ..
If you do not have a network free near by ..you can connect using the wireless card to another computer connected to the internet ..or install a wireless router on your Ethernet cable ..and a card in computer or a usb one ..
In my opinion the wireless card and router is the best way cause connecting trough another computer can be tricky and slow..
another way ..if you do not have any other means is to use a wireless modem on usb from a mobile network ISP (internet service provider )
This can be the same provider as your mobile phone one ..

Scaleo 600 how can i connect to internet from modem?


Plug your modem up to your phone line & plug in the power cord. If you are using an ethernet cable its should plug into the modem and into your computer. If you are connecting wirelessly, make sure you card has a wireless network card or that you have a wireless adapter. If it still doesn't work you may have to call you internet provider to make sure the modem settings correct.

Dell Optiplex 745 desktop will not connect to internet


Most desktops need to be connected with a wire to your network because most desktop computers do not come with a wireless NIC (network interface card). If you are not sure if yours has one you can get your service tag off of your computer and type it in the Dell website (link below) under drivers and downloads and look at the original configuration for your system. If you have a Wireless NIC card in your desktop it should connect just like your laptop computers did. If not you may have a defective wireless card.

Cannot connect to internet with konaki netbook


How to Connect a Laptop to a Wireless Router Using a Windows Operating System
Follow the router's manual to set up the router and its Internet connection , which will probably require connecting a wired client to the router. Once the wireless router is set up, the wired connection is no longer necessary. However, it's best to leave the wired client connected if it's a separate computer from that on which you're going to set up WiFi. If something goes wrong, you can access the administration interface again.
Gather information from the setup process. In order to set up the wireless client, you will need to know the service set identifier (SSID), the Wireless Encryption Protocol (WEP) key and the channel and mode.
Boot up the laptop and plug in the WiFi card. This will not be necessary if your laptop has an integrated WiFi card.
Install any drivers needed to use the WiFi card. Insert the disc that came with the WiFi card and follow the on-screen installation process. Most discs will trigger a new hardware wizard that makes installation extremely simple.
Double-click on the "WiFi Connection" icon. It can be found in the system tray at the bottom of the laptop screen.
Click on "Properties."
Select the "Wireless Networks" tab.
Use the "Add" button at the bottom of the dialog if your WiFi network isn't in the "Available Networks" section.
Click on "Configure" when you see your network's SSID in the "Available Networks."
Enter your network's SSID and WEP key.
Click on "Start," then choose "Connect To" and "Wireless Network Connection." Your computer should now be able to access the WiFi network. If the WiFi network is connected to the Internet, it should also be able to connect to the Internet.

Can siemens speedstream 4200 be used with wifi antenna. do not want dsl.


The Siemens is a DSL modem and doesn't meet with your requirements.
Wireless connections to the Internet can be achieved by several methods and it depends upon the method of delivery by the Internet Service Provider in your location.
The most common is by DSL and cable, the modems that are used with DSL and cable connection can have a built-in wireless router. Your computer will require a wireless card to connect to the modem/wireless router and the range is restricted to approx. 100 ft depending where the wireless router is located within the building.

The laptop's wireless card can be a built-in device or a plug-in device eg a PCMCIA card or a USB device. and these can also connect to a wifi hot spot in locations such as McDonalds. Star Bucks etc.

There is another method that can connect into the Internet that uses a USB wireless device that connects to a G3 network, bacically a type of mobile transmission and the device is locked into a specific Internet Service Provider. This method gives a wider mobile range (even across states) of connecting to the Internet but usually at a higher cost.

Basically you need to see what the Internet Service Providers offer in your location. Beware of the costs of the various plans they offer in broadband speed, their download limits and the penality for exceeding the limits etc.

When you decide which method you choose, you need to consider setting up your wireless network securely to prevent unauthorized access.

Network Connect Problem


If your machine is initially connecting then not connecting after some time. I would try the following:
1. Ensure you have a stable connection with your Internet service provider. Check cables and make sure you're not having any power or connection issues with your modem.
2. If this does not seem to be the source of the problem. You may have a problem with malicious software as the connection seems to work initially and then stop. Go to Download.com and download Malwarebyte's Antimalware and scan your machine.
3. If this doesn't solve your problems you may be having hardware issues which may require a replacement of your network card or connected device.

I have a modem with a wireless card that AOL Broadband provided. It is a Comtrend CT-534 and works great when connected to my desktop. But when I try to use the wireless card to connect to my laptop I get...


If you are getting a connected and excellent signal for your wireless connection then you need to double check the IP address. If you are not connecting to your Internet Service Providers Web server then this would block you from being able to connect to the web. While you are connected to your wireless card click on start>run>type in "cmd". This will bring you to the DOS prompt. Type in c:\ to get to the root directory. Then type in "ipconfig /release, then type in ipconif /renew. This will reconnect your network to your ISP's web server. If this does not work then the problem is at the ISPs end and there is nothing you can do to correct it immediately. You need to call your Internet Service Provider and explain your problem to them. What is happening is that your router DHCP protocol is not providing you with a proper IP address and they can only fix it on their end if the ipconfig does not fix it.
