I hooked up a new printer & lost my internet connection.
I phoned my provider & they informed me that my wireless card in my hard-drive was bad.They had me unhook my Wireless Router & plug my modem directly into my computer & that corrected the problem. I need the Wireless Router for my daughter to get acess to the internet so, they they advised me to buy an Ethernet Cable to correct the problem. I purchased the Ethernet Cord & it has NOT corrected the problem.......Can you help?

SETTING UP A BROADBAND CONNECTION First you need to decide what type of broadband and Internet service you require and these are - 1. DSL that uses your existing telephone line. 2. Cable that uses a cable service and can include a cable TV service. 3. A wireless 3G network uses the mobile/cell phone network and can be separate or combine with your cell phone account. This type of Internet connection uses an USB wireless device shaped like an USB memory stick. Note - Combined services generally offer discount pricing and may include a modem/wireless router.
If you use a wireless router with the DSL or Cable Internet service then your laptop with a wireless card can then connect to the Internet. You can also connect to a free WiFi hot spots like McDonalds, Star Bucks, the Airport etc. using the wireless card in your laptop. If you use the wireless 3G wireless broadband service, then you can access the Internet anywhere where your ISP has 3G wireless coverage. You need to check the service coverage area where you need Internet service. Once you decide what type of broadband your require, then you need to check with the various Internet Service providers to see if they can offer and the cost of the various plans. Note the download limits and the associated additional costs if you exceed the monthly download limits. Once you sign up with a Internet Service provider, their documentation will include setting up instructions and/or installation CD.

To connect wireless to a network ..you need a wireless router or access to a near by one ..and you need to install a wireless card on computer if it has non ..This can be a pci card and you will install it on a pci slot inside and install its driver and after that connect to the network available ..or use a wireless card on usb .. If you do not have a network free near by ..you can connect using the wireless card to another computer connected to the internet ..or install a wireless router on your Ethernet cable ..and a card in computer or a usb one .. In my opinion the wireless card and router is the best way cause connecting trough another computer can be tricky and slow.. another way ..if you do not have any other means is to use a wireless modem on usb from a mobile network ISP (internet service provider ) This can be the same provider as your mobile phone one ..
Get a usb flash drive and go to the library or a computer hooked to the Internet, and download the installation software from the Netgear site.Then plug that usb flash drive into the computer and install the netgear wireless adapter.
Yes you simply need to hook up via an Ethernet cable, open a browser type in the routers address, login with username and password, and then you can edit any setting you like. Then when finished you save settings and reboot router.
installation guide below.
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 :- http://www.fixya.com/support/r3559128-wireless_router_security
How to Connect a Laptop to a Wireless Router Using a Windows Operating System Follow the router's manual to set up the router and its Internet connection, which will probably require connecting a wired client to the router. Once the wireless router is set up, the wired connection is no longer necessary. However, it's best to leave the wired client connected if it's a separate computer from that on which you're going to set up WiFi. If something goes wrong, you can access the administration interface again. Gather information from the setup process. In order to set up the wireless client, you will need to know the service set identifier (SSID), the Wireless Encryption Protocol (WEP) key and the channel and mode. Boot up the laptop and plug in the WiFi card. This will not be necessary if your laptop has an integrated WiFi card. Install any drivers needed to use the WiFi card. Insert the disc that came with the WiFi card and follow the on-screen installation process. Most discs will trigger a new hardware wizard that makes installation extremely simple. Double-click on the "WiFi Connection" icon. It can be found in the system tray at the bottom of the laptop screen. Click on "Properties." Select the "Wireless Networks" tab. Use the "Add" button at the bottom of the dialog if your WiFi network isn't in the "Available Networks" section. Click on "Configure" when you see your network's SSID in the "Available Networks." Enter your network's SSID and WEP key. Click on "Start," then choose "Connect To" and "Wireless NetworkConnection." Your computer should now be able to access the WiFi network. If the WiFi network is connected to the Internet, it should also be able to connect to the Internet.
If you are getting a connected and excellent signal for your wireless connection then you need to double check the IP address. If you are not connecting to your Internet Service Providers Web server then this would block you from being able to connect to the web. While you are connected to your wireless card click on start>run>type in "cmd". This will bring you to the DOS prompt. Type in c:\ to get to the root directory. Then type in "ipconfig /release, then type in ipconif /renew. This will reconnect your network to your ISP's web server. If this does not work then the problem is at the ISPs end and there is nothing you can do to correct it immediately. You need to call your Internet Service Provider and explain your problem to them. What is happening is that your router DHCP protocol is not providing you with a proper IP address and they can only fix it on their end if the ipconfig does not fix it.
