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.

The laptop was clean up and new windows were loaded but the internet drivers is missing. Were do i get it ?


You do no need drivers for the Internet, you only need IE browser.
If you cannot connect to the Internet then you may have one or more of these problems.
Your ADSL modem has not been configured with your Internet service provider.
Your LAN driver may not be installed or the LAN cable from your laptop to the ADSL modem is faulty.
If you connect to the Internet using a wireless connection then the wireless driver on your laptop may not be installed and or may not be configured with the router's wireless settings.

I have the DCM425 RCA Modem and I'd like to use it with another internet provider but I don't know how to get it connected. Can you help?


Hi.

You should have no problem using the modem with another internet provider as the modem is a cable modem and not a ADSL modem.
Make sure that your new ISP (internet service provider) is supplied by a cable company and not one that comes through the telephone line as the modem will not work if that is the case.
Once you have cable installed its as simple as connecting all the leads like the coaxial lead and the Ethernet lead. turn it on and you should be good to go after about 2 minutes.

Click on the link below for an on-line PDF operators manual for the RCA modem which will tell you exactly how to install the modem.

Where do you turn the internet on


To get onto the internet you need modem internet connection. You can get this from from local cable company or phone company. They will provide you with a modem. Connect your computer to the modem or ask them to do it. Once your computer is connected Open "Internet Explorer" from the application menu on your computer. It should default to a page on the internet. In the upper left hand corner there is a space to type in a URL or internet address. On the right there is a search box type in Google. This will take you to the home page for Google. Now you can search the internet!!!

Only internet light is blinking


According to the user guide, the modem is trying to connect to the isp. If it is continually blinking, check all your cables. Once you are satisfied all cables are properly connect contact the isp to find out if there is an outage in your area and if not they can help you.

I have a DSL502T ADSL Router,and have bought a new emachines computer. I can not connect to the internet. The computer has a wireless connection loaded but I want to connect by dailup Please could you help...


You are a bit confused with the various components required for Internet connections.
If you have a dial-up connection with an Internet Service Provider, all you do is connect your computer's modem port to the phone line and dial the phone number of your Internet Service provider.
If you are connected to the Internet Servise Provider by ADSL and have a combined ADSL router and modem then you connect the phone line to this router/modem. If the ADSL modem is separate component then the phone line is connected to the ADSL modem and this modem is connected to the router with a LAN cable and the computer is connected to the router with another LAN cable. If the route is wireless and the computer has a wireless card then you don't need a LAN cable between the router and the computer.
If you are connected to the Internet by ADSL, to secure your Internet connection and configure your computer so it can connect to the Internet, please follow my instruction - click on this link :-

Will my DSL 300G Modem work


it will work if the subscription would also be an adsl line. but you need to know the new providers settings including type of connection (pppoe, dhcp, etc) and the vci settings. once you place the settings correctly, it will work.
