1 Answer

No internet connection

I cant connect to my internet through wireless or through ethernet port... my computer is a compaq....

use linksys wireless-g cable gateway . I have a pc and a laptop. before going on vacation i could use my laptop anywhere in the house. Tried to use my laptop on vacation and could only get on-line one day then it just wouldn't go on-line at all. After coming home same problem, even when right beside my pc. it says no connection. I go in to find another wireless program to use but with no luck. I have tried turning the wireless button on that is located in front of my laptop, Presario r3000. No luck , I cant even tell if it is on or off. This laptop has caused me nothing but trouble since I got it. I have replaced the power cord, only to find out that it is a problem with faulty connection with the power thingy inside the laptop and the only way to stop it from shutting off is to go into it and and sowder it again. I bought a battery for it which works fine as long as it stays charged. Now this. What is wrong this time?????

Trying to connect to internet cant find wireless & cant find a ethernet place either


The laptop in question does not have a place to plug in the ethernet cable. The laptop is not fitted with wi-fi or bluetooth adapters either. The best and cheapest way to connect this laptop to the internet is using a PCMCIA Card Adapter (type two or three as both are supported.) such as the product supplied by linksys. If yours is similar to the one in the photo then it should include a cable with the required network connection on the end. The "linksys" card you mentioned is no doubt the correct one, but minus the vital cable!

Can I disable wireless and connect with ethernet cord and modem, for work do not want remove wireless cord, in the day want to be able to use my wireless.


Are you talking about direct-connecting via Ethernet to a cable or DSL modem? You shouldn't have to disable wireless to do that. If the cable modem has an open Ethernet port, you should be able to run a straight-thru Ethernet Cat-5 cable between that port and the Ethernet port on your laptop. The laptop should recognize that it is connected to the modem through the direct connection. Check the manual for the cable modem or information supplied by your ISP for connection details. You may have to do some setup on the modem to get an Internet connection, like having your ISP 'activate' the modem. Just be sure your Ethernet cable is a straight-thru, standard Ethernet cable, and not a 'cross-over' cable such as is used to transfer data between two computers.

My compaq presario V2000 will only connect to dialup


To connect to your DSL internet you will need an ethernet port or wireless card on your laptop. Your laptop should have an ethernet port, it will look like a phone jack but a little bigger. In the off chance that you don't have an ethernet port on your laptop you can also purchase an ethernet to usb adpater. You may have a wireless card installed on your laptop, but if not you can purchase a usb wireless adapter. To use your internet wirelessly in your home you'll also need a wireless router. All of these things can be purchased at your local electronics store (walmart, best buy, kmart, frys) and usually are fairly easy to setup with the included instructions.

Use Incoming Wireless to Send Out Ethernet *Internet Sharing*


http://windowshelp.microsoft.com/Windows/en-US/help/bfd3bd31-82f0-4b9c-9cde-fb92bc2b14771033.mspx


Enabling ICS
To enable ICS, on your host computer:

1. Open Network Connections by clicking the Start button , clicking Control Panel, clicking Network and Internet, clicking Network and Sharing Center, and then clicking Manage network connections.

2. Right-click the connection that you want to share, and then click Properties. If you are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.

3. Click the Sharing tab, and then select the Allow other network users to connect through this computer’s Internet connection check box.
NoteThe Sharing tab will not be available if you have only one network connection.

4. If desired, you can also select the Allow other network users to control or disable the shared Internet connection check box.

5. Optionally, to allow other network users to use services running on your network, click Settings and select the services you want to allow.


When you enable ICS, your local area network (LAN) connection gets a new static IP address and configuration, so you'll need to reestablish any TCP/IP connections between your host computer and the other network computers.
To test your network and Internet connection, see if you can share files between computers and make sure each computer can reach a website.

---------

Once you have done the above, connect the Ethernet cord to the WAN/Modem port on the Linksys router and set the router to Dynamic IP. Then connect another computer to one of the LAN numbered ports on the router and they will have internet. Remember your computer MUST be on for the computers connected to the Linksys to get internet.

If you're running a wireless network, make sure all computers on the network use the same network name, for instance "My network" Home Network etc. one can't say "MS HOME" and the computer you're using say "My Network"

Modem vs. Router


Oh I thought you wanted a wireless anywhere modem.
Ok
A Modem is what you need to get the internet from your internet provider. A router splits that connection from the modem so that more than 1 computer can get on.
What you need to do is get a wireless router such as the Linksys WRT54G then connect it to the modem so that it will broadcast wireless to your laptop.
