Do I have a wireless enabled laptop


If your laptop is running Windows Vista/7/8/8.1, it probably has built-in wireless capability. Open "Device Manager", and expand the "Network Adapters" branch of the tree, to look for the LAN/Ethernet adapter, and possibly, the wireless network adapter.

Telephone wall-plate <---- 4-strand telephone-cord ---> telephone-port in modem

AC power from wall-plate to modem.

LAN port #1 <--- Ethernet cable --> network-port on desktop/laptop computer #1.
LAN port #2 <--- Ethernet cable --> network-port on desktop/laptop computer #2.
LAN port #3 <--- Ethernet cable --> network-port on desktop/laptop computer #3.
LAN port #4 <--- Ethernet cable --> network-port on desktop/laptop computer #4.

Configure the router's wireless adapter:
* set a SSID
* set an encryption-level, e.g., 'WPA'
* set a network password

Use the SSID/password to configure your wireless devices (iPod Touch, iPad, XBOX 360, etc.)

Seems like your computer ethernet adapter (network card) is not working correctly/not installed or mis-configured. Open Network Connection and look for Local Area Connection:
* Does it state Disable underneath it? -> Right-click on it and choose Enable.

* Doesn't exist -> Open Device Manager and look for Network Adapters. Is it there? Do you see any yellow question mark or exclamation mark? If so, reinstall the network card driver! If you don't see any of this then the network card is either not connected firmly to the motherboard or it's defective. Connect it firmly (after shutting off the computer and disconnecting the power cord!) or replace it with another network card!

* Exists and enabled -> Right-click on it and choose Properties. Click Configure, go to Advanced. On Media Type, make sure it's set to Hardware Default or AutoSelect.

Good luck!
Cheers,
Pelu.

Network cable unpluged error sign


Hi .

With most issues like this it has something to do with the ethernet cable or modem. If you tried replacing it and stillhave the same issue then it could be on your PC.

You can check device manager first by going through the steps below:

Assuming you are using winxp { almost same steps for vista}:

Start > control panel { classic view} > systems > hardware > device manager and on that window pane look for the +network adapters > make sure your devices ion there doesnt have red X on it . If so right click it and choose Enable. If it has a yellow or red exclamation marks { IRQ conflicts} then you need to reinstall the device by right clicking it and unistall > restart PC and make sure you have your system disk for your PC.

You can also check your network connections by going to start > run > type : ncpa.cpl on the run command and it will route you to networlk connections .Check if your network connection is disabled. , ifYES right click and choose Enable.

If that doesnt hel assuming you have replaced ethernet cable/ modem then might as well buy a new NIC {network interface card} for your PC to isolate the issue.

Other works around for this is using a USB connection to your modem or getting a wireless USB for you computer and get a router instead for wireless conenctivity.

In this way you mayu connect multiple computers in the future and wont have messy cables running throughout your house.

Cheers.Hope this helps.

Let us know soon.

Good luck

Yes you can use USb modem, you need to uninstall modem software, disconnect modem and reinstall software configuring it as usb. Start installation with modem disconnected and follow User Guide SBG900


Note: usb modem is much slower than ethernet modem (even if you use same machine) . Instead of using modem as usb I suggest using an external Usb Network adapter.
