You can make a new internet conection, for windows you go to control panel then network connections then go to "create a new connection". then a wizard appliacation will run. With this application go "next" twice then select "set up my connection manually" checkbox . then you need to put in the info of the connection (including a password), and make sure that the checkbox that says "make this my default connection" is checked off. This new connection will be the one you use when you hook up to the internet. If this doesn't work then idno. But for macs idno.

I am trying to connect to the web with my new sylvania ce netbook and it has the right password in it I click the internet icon says connecting the shows up unable to connect. Can you help me or should I...


Using the Personal computer to arrive into network requires turning on the device that would have a password to display the system windows. After the computer turns on though would have required a computer user password or possibly not, locate an internet explorer icon whether example; google, mossilla fox pro, chrome, netscape, internet explorer, are just network interface where network features would show up on. 2. clicking on the internet icon should require a password if built to require user pass before joining a network. 3. The password would possibly been disabled in some instances, where for example clicking on the internet explorer icon should simply display a page welocoming the network required. For example, if the internet explorer icon is clicked showing display page momentarily, then www.Google.com is typed in the search space of the page displayed, a connected network should show another page displaying the features of the page or site google show mometarily after search space has been click. An unconnected network would always display a message or network unavailable or internet not setup and requiring establsiment. The most situation would be a message communicating the cause of network malfunction. if the computer has a network subscription plan, for example a provider that has promised to network the computer in question for fees, where would have provided the computer user an installation kit either software to install on the computer to be linked to a network. The computer with networking defaults would turn on completely only after which just cannot network into another setup when a page is clicked onto it. Simply, ask your network provider for further assistance.

The following are network providers to contact for subscription and technicallities involving computer telecommuncation.

Cricket wireless services
AT & T wireless services
T-Mobile wireless services
Verizone wireless services
Pocket commication services
Trac wireless services
Boost mobile wireless services

Visit any locations to inquire about networking functionalities to phones or computers or contacting online by email or phone with questions of connectivity

My neighbor who has a Toshiba laptop computer is unable to sign onto the internet using my wireless. It does not even bring up my wireless as an option. Can you help us with a solution


If your neighbor cannot see your wireless network then he is most likely too far away from your wireless router to get a decent signal and therefore signing onto your network won't help at all..

I am getting ready to switch from dial-up to satellite internet service, I have a Compaq Presario SR1730T and need to know what type of wireless router is best or will any wireless router be compatible????


Usually the internet service provider (even satellite) provides a modem/router to access the internet. This being said to purchase a wireless router must mean that you are going to "broadcast" your satellite internet throughout the house so that others in the house can access the internet.

In that case, no it doesn't really matter what kind of wireless router to buy. Just make sure you connect your satellite modem/router (what they send you) into the wireless router correctly. Also, make sure you put a password on that wireless router so that your neighbors or unknown persons do not gain access to your internet/computer.

Thanks.

My neighbor is using the signal from my modem. is there a solution to this?


Hi,

Two (2) ways:
1. Use WEP or WPA security key (but that has been known to cause a slowdown);
2. Use MAC filtering which will restrict devices whose MAC numbers are entered into a table of allowed PCs.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.
