You get an Ethernet cable and plug it into your computer and plug the other end to the router. It does not matter what operating system you use.

With Windows 2000 there is a trick to make it recognize the router. Go to start - run - type - ipconfig - then you should get a command prompt. If you do not get a command prompt you will have to open up a Dos screen and type it in. After you get to ipconfig you will have to put in ipconfig / release. This will release the IP. Then you put in the next line - ipconfig / renew. That should do what you need to get onto the network. If this does not work. Try resetting your router by unplugging it and plugging it back in after about a minute then doing the steps over again. If this does not work you might have a bad router,network card, or cable. Let me know if this does not work and I will try to help you more.

If this does help, please rate this a fixed question so I will get the rating. Thanks. The ratings help me to help you.

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).

To connect to your wireless router, the router needsits wireless settings to be configured with the SSID, encryption key etc., alsothe wireless cards in all the laptops/computers needs to be configured withthese router's wireless settings. Then the laptops/desktop computers cancommunicate with your wireless router.When you connect the cable or DSL modem to the router then you will be able to access the Internet.

Not able to go online


have you been online with this computer before?
or
Are you setting up for the first time?

Once you have an Internet Service Provider ,ISP,
you just need a modem and phone line access,
plug modem into phone socket and then into the computer,

My example modem is.........

Speed Touch 5x6v6 - Broadband Modem

log on to the modem using Internet Explorer Bar
Type 192.168.254
this will open the modems log on menu
then enter user name and password
its factory default is
user ADMIN
password ADMIN or 1234

once open there are some menu options on the main page

Speed Touch,
Broadband Connection,
Toolbox,
Home Network,

to add new user and password,
go to toolbox,
user management,
add new user
add password,(write down username and password)
change default user
save and test
should have a green tick next to new default user now

selecting broadband ... shows both your,
dsl connection and internet connection status,
with a green tick next to each heading.

Home network will show you...
all devices connected to this modems network ie
the other computers and printers etc,
connected on your network.
In network ,select your computer in the menu tree,
select configure
this give you a menu to add info about your computer
ie name info, comupters ip address,
access to the local intranet or the internet

Now lets connect to the internet

select Broadband from fornt page
menu will open and display
DSL & Internet Connections
here we test functionality.on? or off?

Now we go to your computer,
start my network connection
run wizard in my network places
select new connection
follow prompts to the end.

open internet explorer
if web page opens then we are done and finished,
open tools and internet options,
connections and then lan settings
select automatically detect
Apply then close
Test webpage again,
when ok shut down and restart,
to save the computers new settings ,
Test again with internet explorrer.

if no connections run wizard again,

Hope this Helps,Cheers Misterdj

Netgear will not connect to the internet on my laptop


Check the power adapter to the Netgear router with a multi-meter. The voltage should be slightly higher than the voltage that is printed on the label on the power adapter.

Once you plug it in, most the time you need to reset the modem and the router together, Unplug both let sit for 2 min then plug in the modem first then the router a couple seconds later. If your modem has a reset button, reset it!

Can't get on the internet


Have you had Internet connection before this happened? Seems like the connection problem is with your modem. Try this-- Pull the power plug from your modem AND the router. Wait 30 sec. or so and put the power plug back in the modem. Let it go through the self-test phase. (All the lights will stop blinking when complete.) Next, Plug in your router and let it go through the self-test phase. When the router finish, try to connect again.

You may have to double click on your network connection (the 2 pcs in the lower right hand corner) select disable, then enable the connection and try to connect to the internet. If you have any problem, post a comment and we will go from there. Good Luck.
