First thing the you need to check is if you have a valid connection through your ISP, to check this just right click on your local area connection icon on the system tray(bottom right hand of the desktop screen) and go to status, under status go to the support tab and verify that your getting a valid IP address from your ISP, if you have valied entries try to ping a website. go to start and then run, type cmd and a black windows will open, type ping yahoo.com and check if you get a reply or request time out, if your getting replies that means it just a browser settings problem.

Connecting to the internet


Hello, Xavierkocher -

Since you were able to post your vague question on Fixya.com, you have access to a computer or other electronic device with internet connection.

You are not clear as to what you need to know. If you are asking how to get internet service to your home, then, you will need to contact an internet service provider in your area.

To find internet service providers in your area, go to this web page and enter your Zip Code in the search box and click on Check.

Note: You will need to pay a monthly fee or enter into a year-long contract (which you will need to pay for) for your home internet service.

How do i connect to the internet i changed me service?


hi Inga.
see if this helps you out.
To open Network Connections, click Start, click Control Panel, click Network and Internet Connections, and then click Network Connections. If your DSL or cable modem is always connected and your ISP does not require a user name and password, you do not need to run the New Connection Wizard.
How do you get access to the Internet? Internet Service Providers (ISPs) If you want to access the internet at home, you'll need an Internet Service Provider (ISP) and a router to connect to the ISP. ISPs often provide a router with their service. This means more than one computer or device in your house can use the broadband connection at the same time.

Acer Aspire willnot take WLAN password


that is a password for you ISP(internet service provider) not your computer. You need to setup a connection through your computer with your ISP to get internet access. best bet would be to contact your ISP and they could walk you through it.

I would like to know when it say laptop with built in wireless. Does that mine i already got internet service on it. Or i have to buy USB modem.


Hello Blac,

All the laptops available in market have built in wireless 802.11 b/g/n or 802.11 b/g/n Bluetooth® wireless networking. It means that you can access the internet via Wi-Fi or through Wi-Fi hotspots. In wireless connectivity you do not require the wired connection to access the internet. In home you can connect the laptop via wireless connection using the home networking router available in market. The advantage of wireless connection is that you can use the internet in your home anywhere with in 100 meters of range with proper wireless signals. You will require to get the internet connection from the ISP(Internet Service Provider).

I have acer computer, but cannot access the internet, Please provide customer service contact to assist me. thank you


The best thing is to check if you have got a valid internet service provider contract.
Then check that you are connected to the modem.

Try the contact number of your internet service provicer as ACER support may not be able to help you directly especially if you had the internet running already. But if you have purchased a new computer then you should contact the company the sold you the computer and ask them to set it up correctly for internet.

I got this computer for christmas and I cant get it to connect to any wireless wifi system. I dont know what I'm doing wrong. Could you please give me some instructions on how to connect it to a home...


The Network and Sharing Center in Microsoft* Windows Vista* can be used to set up a secure wireless connection to the Internet.

Note: If an Internet connection is not automatically made by the operating system, you may need to contact your access point (AP), broadband wireless router manufacturer, or Internet Service Provider (ISP).

Set Up a Secure Wireless Connection to the Internet


These steps assume that your network adapter; AP or router; and cable, DSL or another type of modem have already been physically connected and configured. They allow you to create a new connection and configure it accordingly.

Follow these steps to set up a secure wireless connection to the Internet.

Note: If a wireless profile does not exist, you will need to create a secure wireless profile before you can set up a wireless connection to the Internet.

1. Access the Network and Sharing Center.

2. Select Set up a connection or network.

3. Click Connect to the Internet.

4. Click Next.

5. Select Wireless. At this point, if the network(s) that are listed say that the network settings do not match the network requirements, as shown in Figure 1, create a secure wireless profile and then follow the steps again.

6. Select a network and click Connect. If you are not connected to the Internet, you may need to contact your AP/router manufacturer or ISP.

Access the Network and Sharing Center


To access the Network and Sharing Center, use one of the following methods:
  • Start » Control Panel » Network and Internet » Network and Sharing Center
  • Start » Network » Network and Sharing Center
  • Right-click the network system tray icon (the icon that displays two computer monitors) » Network and Sharing Center

Trying to change from actiontec gt701 to actiontec gt701-wg. after new modem is hooked up, internet light stays red. switched by to old modem and all is fine. anyone know why internet light stayed red?


The reason why your internet light is red for the actiontec gt701-wg is because it is not yet configure. You need to access the gui of this router. enter the username and password for your internet connection. You can contact your ISP provider so they can walk you through for the steps on how to configure your new router.

The old router has green light because it was already configured by your ISP provider.

Need a network key code for the live box.


Hey ehouse1,

What XBox Live is most likely requesting from you is your Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA) key to access your wireless network. Without the WPA key, your XBox will be denied internet access by your router or residential gateway.

You may generally obtain your WPA key by accessing your router/gateway from a connected computer on your home network, and by visiting the default router address through your internet browser. Please note that this default address differs from model to model, but is typically one of the two following:

http://192.168.0.1
or
http://192.168.1.1

Additionally, you will most likely need to have your router's user name and password handy in order to access the hardware's menu settings. Once you have access, you should be able to find your WPA key under "Security Settings" or another similarly-named option.

If you are not comfortable doing any of this or are still unsure how to proceed, I would strongly suggest contacting your internet service provider (ISP) for further assistance. Most ISP's are able to provide over-the-phone technical support and walk-throughs for their customers free of charge. In some cases, they may even be able to provide in-home networking services to help set up your Xbox.

Hope this helps you out.

Sincerely,
Aaron
Go Ahead. Use Us.
