Question about Computers & Internet
I just recently purchased a laptop, and when i opened the package and took the laptop out, the internet and everything worked by just plugging the yellow internet cord into it, but this was at my father's house. Now while I'm at my mom's house, the internet won't work when i plug the (ethernet?) yellow cord into my computer from the modem. Will it not work because there's another laptop thats being used from the cord? My internet program is Comcast. I really want to get my laptop working! Thanks for helping!
First turn off you laptop. Second, go to your comcast cable modem unplug it from the wall and wait about 3mins. Now plug the comcast modem back it and wait for all the lights to come back (will take about 2-3mins). Now plug the yellow ethernet cable into your laptop if its not already and turn your laptop on. You should now have internet.
Also if you using a Comcast Surf Board modem be mindful of the standby button on top of the modem. You can tell your in standby mode if the standby light (bottom light) is amber. If it is press the standby button once to get out of standby mode.
hope that helps

If someone takes the information from my modem that goes to my desktop computer and enter it into their laptop is it true that they need that information in order to talk to me on yahoo messenger?
