Need more details.
Generally, first you need to turn on the wireless option in the gateway. Go to \\home or \home (depending on browser). Then go the Network option (no the broadband option), click of wireless settings, and make sure you have this enabled. That should atleast give you the basics. Anything further, please see the 2wire website and get the manual.

How to install my router for wireless internet on my laptop.


1. Purchase a wireless router that fits your needs and price range.

2. 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.

3. 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.

4. Boot up the laptop and plug in the WiFi card. This will not be necessary if your laptop has an integrated WiFi card.

5. 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.

6. Double-click on the "WiFi Connection" icon. It can be found in the system tray at the bottom of the laptop screen.

7. Click on "Properties."

8. Select the "Wireless Networks" tab.

9. Use the "Add" button at the bottom of the dialog if your WiFi network isn't in the "Available Networks" section.

10. Click on "Configure" when you see your network's SSID in the "Available Networks."

11. Enter your network's SSID and WEP key.

12. 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.

Thanks.
Have great day.

How do I connect my linksys wireless router?


Here are the steps :

1.Attach the antennas to the Linksys wireless router.

2.Place the router in a central location, making sure it's not surrounded by metal. (A signal can't be obtained through metal.) The router should be located so that the distance between clients (computers) is somewhat equal. This will create a better connection.

3.Plug the Ethernet cable into the "Internet" port on the back of the Linksys router.

4.Connect a computer to the router by plugging another Ethernet cable into the Ethernet port on your computer and attaching the other end to one of the available ports on the back of the router. You can choose any port except the one labeled "WAN."

5.Plug the router into an electrical outlet.

6.Wait for the power light to stop flashing, at which time the router is finished booting up. While the router is booting, the power light will be blinking. This process may take a few minutes to complete.

7.Reboot your computer so it can access a new IP address from the router through the Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP).

Configure the Router procedure.

1.Open your web browser, type " http://192.168.1.1/ " into the address bar and hit "Enter."

2.Use "Admin" as the username in the pop-up box and leave the password blank.

3.Connect to the Internet and click on "Internet Setup."

4.Select your connection type from the drop-down menu. Choose "DHCP" for cable modems or "PPPoE" for most DSL modems. If you are unsure of these options, check with your ISP.

5.Set a service set identifier (SSID) to identify the router and change the password.

6.Encrypt your wireless connection using a Wireless Encryption Protocol (WEP) key. Under the "Wireless Security" option, enter a passphrase and click "Generate." This will generate a password which will need to be used by any client connecting to your router.

My Gateway 507GR PC desktop will not connect to internet


Turn off (unplug if necessary) your modem, router, and PC. Then power on the modem, wait a minute and then power on the router, then power on your PC, this should solve your issue if you have service.

Hi,could some one walk me through setting up my Billion modem wirelessly to my Dell Desk top running XP home. I get confused with firewalls,LAN settings etc Ethernet cable is being used at the moment. Do...


I am not familliar with that brand, so I do not know if it is a cable/dsl modem, a router, or a combination of the 2. I will assume it is the cable or dsl modem since you said modem.

The thing we need to do first is give you a basic understanding of whats what, and how it works.

Imagine a 3 tier water fountain. Water flows from the top, to the center, to the bottom.

Your home network is the same way. Signal flows from the MODEM to the ROUTER to the COMPUTER CLIENTS in that order. Keep this in mind. Also, remember you never, NEVER setup a router from a wireless computer client. you ALWAYS use an ethernet connected client in port 1 2 3 or 4.

Quick education about Firewalls: They are programs and devices that are designed SPECIFICALLY to BLOCK TRAFFIC. Think of them like Toll Roads. YOU have to open each virtual port for inbound, outbound, or both. Since that is such a painstaking thing, most firewalls come with default port settings, blocking the most typically unused traffic ports and monitoring the common ones, such as port 80 (the internet port) port 110 (the sending mail POP port) and port 25 (the receiving mail SMTP port). That is why typically, people who can get online (but cant send or receive email) have to disable their firewall or antivirus (security) suite, because the program is closing the ports making them useless. IF you have a router, theres a 99.9% chance that YOU WILL NOT need a firewall. Routers are firewalls by nature.

Quick education about LAN (LAN means Local Area Network, meaning a router inside your house or inside your office or a series of switches and ports setup in your apartment, your "local area") settings: Most lans are DHCP, which means nothing to you, but, in lamens terms it means that you hook it up, turn it on, and it auto configures itself. In the olden days, you had to tell your computer its address, and tell the router its address and the address of each computer, and so forth. Thanks to dhcp, they can now negotiate a lease and assign that info automatically. SO, make sure DHCP is ENABLED. and make sure your lan settings are set to "Obtain ip address and dns server automatically".

Quick education about drivers. you DO need drivers for the wireless devices, you DO need drivers for the ethernet devices, but you DO NOT need drivers for the router, and YOU DO NOT need drivers for the modem. DO NOT HOOK THE MODEM TO THE COMPUTER THRU USB! USB is never to be used unless you do not have ethernet capability, it's like a spare tire. Remove any USB wires from the modem and put them away please! The ONLY wires you want in the modem are POWER and ETHERNET. (they dont make USB routers because USB is not a networking device, USB is a peripheral device)

You will be using Ethernet connection. An ethernet connection requires that you only have the ethernet drivers. So:
YES you need to make sure your ethernet drivers are installed and that your ethernet ports are enabled and working, and:
YES you need to make sure that your wireless card is enabled and functioning, and radio is switched to ON.

Now, remember the fountain? We are going to build it here. The trick is that we have to reset the DHCP list. (if we dont, then it wont work because DHCP will be stubborn and try to talk to the other items, not knowing they were removed). So, we will need to unplug power to the modem and router and shut down each pc client... after you print these directions of course.

While everything is off, hook the main computer into PORT 1 on the router. Make sure that PORTS 2 3 and 4 are empty. (fyi, you can use those for xbox, ps2/3 or wii, or any extra computers). Now, look for a port that says "LAN" or "ETHERNET" or UPLINK on the router. (it will be an ethernet port that doesnt have a number). hook that to the cable/dsl modem. You should now have the modem, hooked to the router, the router hooked to the main pc. Lets start the water flow.

plug power into the modem and wait 1 minute for DHCP synch with the company. (usually you see a sync light or a ready light).

once the modem is synched with the ISp, plug power to the router and wait 1 minute. (so the router can get the dhcp from the modem)

If your modem and router are combined in 1 device, then just wait for synch with isp.

Now start the main computer and try the internet. If you can get online, you have a good network connection. The rest will have to be done by the wireless router mfr, but it isnt hard. In fact, by default, you should be able to start your wireless and get online through it now, but you may want to consider wireless security, (WEP WPA) settings. Call the rtr mfr for those. (its not hard, just tedious and this post is long enough already).. lol. Quick note about wifi: its flaky. If you have a 2.4 ghz phone in your area you may drop connection (wireless only). try different wifi channels to resolve the issue, (call router mfr).

Gateway GM 5084 Ethernet


Are the drivers installed? Look in your device manager for the drivers. You might need a new Ethernet card. Also check in the BIOS to see if it is turned on. Try hitting the delete key or one of the F keys when it starts to get to the BIOS.

L cannot run 2 compters at tihe or can L run on either one or the other.from the same modem?


  1. If using a dial up modem you would need to network the computers together with ethernet cards and a cross-over cat5e cable and set up shared internet connection. One would be a server and one a client server would have to be on all the time for client to access the net.
  2. If using broadband (DSL or Cable) you will need a router. Wired or Wireless. Connect modem to router, router to computers, re-boot the computers, then reboot the modem and router so the modem can assign IP addresses.
