Which 'E430' ????

This model-name is used by ACER & TOSHIBA & EMACHINES.

Why not ask STAPLES for the specifications?

Or, read the manuals that came with the computer.

Or, access 'www.acer.com' or 'www.toshiba.com' or 'www.emachines.com', and read the specifications from the web-site.

Given that you _just_ purchased it, it's quite "normal" that _any_ brand-new computer _will_ have a wireless adapter.

Wireless antenna or wireless router


Did your ISP Boingo supply you with a DSL or cable modem with a built-in wireless router? If only a DSL or cable modem is supplied and you wish to connect to the Internet by wireless then you need to connect a wireless router to this DSL or cable modem.

You can connect to the Internet using a LAN cable from your laptop to the DSL or cable modem.
If your laptop as a built-in wireless card you can to the Internet via the wireless router.
If you laptop does not have a built-in wireless card then you can install a PCMCIA wireless card into the card slot of your laptop to the Internet via a wireless connection.

How to connect my Acer Extensa 367T wirelessly


You can use your USB port to install a wireless "stick" i call it or it should have a built in wireless modem. Take it to you to Best Buy or Staples and they will have what you need especially if you already have wireless service coming into your home. God Bless and Best of Luck!!

Is your Telstra/Bigpond ADSL modem has a built-in wireless router?
If the ADSL modem has a built-in wireless router and your laptop does not have a wireless card, then you have two options to connect your laptop to the ADSL wireless router/Internet -
1. Purchase a PCMCIA wireless adapter and insert it into the PCMCIA slot in your laptop. One of my favourites is made by Netgear.
or
2. Purchase a USB wireless adapter, the only disadvantage with this solution is, it uses a USB port and if your laptop has only one USB port. This is a problem if you need to connect other USB devices. Then you also need to purchase a 4 port USB hub to give you additional USB ports.

Wifi


You need to purchase a wireless router. The router will have 5 ports on the back, one in and 4 out. The wire that you have going from your modem to your computer will go to the "in" port on the router. The out ports can be used for wired connections, and the wireless antenna will connect to any wireless computers.

Any computer that you want to connect wirelessly to your new router will need to be wireless-ready. For a desktop computer, you will need to buy and install a wireless PCI network card. Most laptops have built-in wireless.

You can buy a wireless router at most "big box" stores, like Best Buy, Office Depot, even WalMart sometimes carries them. A wireless router will cost between $75 and $150.

assuming you have a wireless router, make sure you have purchased the correct one, as cable and dsl routers are different, as cable modems need to be connected to the router via a cable and dsl normally have a modem that can't be connected to a router, and you will require a modem/router.

You can only share a wireless connection when the line comes directly to the router and not through a pc, as the pc with the connection will have to always be on.

Laptop connection to Internet


In the simplest terms buy a longer ethernet cable or multiple ethernet cables and route them to several preferred areas.

However believing you probably would like to connect wirelessly

If your laptop has a built-in network card and originally came with Vista you may need to configure the network adapter and/or the router appropriately. There are often user guides for the both the adapter and router that will assist.

If your laptop has an built-in wireless adapter and you upgraded to Vista you should check the manufacturers website using support or drivers links to see if they have Vista software/drivers to support your built-in wireless adapter. IF not you may want to consider the purchase of a compatible add-on wireless adapter as noted below. And perform the appropriate configuration(s) as noted above.

Likewise if your laptop does not have a wireless adapter you may wish to consider purchasing an adapter. Care must be taken that the adapter is compatible with your computer, your operating system (Vista) and your wireless router (apparently WBR-1310).

My Wireless internet card don't work


i think you are a little confused, your laptop may have a wireless card internally, but you need a wireless broadband or cable router for the wireless adapter to pick up a signal.

A fax modem cannot be wireless and cannot be broadband as you cannot fax using a broadband connection.


Assuming you have a broadband connection you will need a wireless modem/ router or roter connected to a broadband modem, not a standard 56k dialup modem as they aren't wireless or broadband.
