    I just recieved time warner cable but when they try to connect to dsl it wouldn't work. I had this problem before several years ago when I try At&t. I did remember that when I bought it the internet would work temporary but I would have to have Geek squad do something to open the internet? I am on fix income. I don't have 200 + to try them.

Your PC needs a Network Interface Card (NIC) as stated above. If you don't know what this is, you should consider a USB NIC. That is of course that you PC has been upgraded to USB 2.0, if not you will need to get a PCI plug in card and open you PC up to connect it.

As you now know, a connector between your high speed modem and your PC will not plug into your PC's modem. That's not how it works.

Once you have a NIC card up and running just follow the instructions with with cable modem for connections.

You might need a new NIC card, thats high speed capable. What kind of hi speed are you trying to use ex.DSL,FiOS,Cable?

Hi NoMamasTomas...
Yes your computer can have wireless as long as you have a wireless modem hooked up to your main computer
A wireless card that will work for your Windows Me machine is made by SMC.
I am sure there are others that will work in your computer also but I have this type sitting on my desk at this very moment.
So I will give you the website to look at a couple of ones.
Please take time to rate me

Where is the wireless switch on the dell vostro 200


Unlike notebook computers, most desktops don't come with wireless networking built in. I can't find any mention on Dell's site that the Vostro 200 has wireless capability, so this computer doesn't have a wireless switch. To use your desktop computer on a wireless network, you'll need to install a wireless adapter. USB adapters are very easy to use since you just have to plug them in. They're not expensive and you can easily find them at retail stores and online.

Gateway 504GR starts running then the monitor read "power saving"


mine does the same thing, the first time it did it, i removed the dial-up modem that it came with, and it booted up just fine with no problems. now, after a year ago of this happening it decides to do it again this morning, so i'm kind of clueless now, considering that there's no modem in it, so i have no idea what could be causing the problem

Dial up modem


Hi!

You can alter your settings by typing 192.168.0.1 or 192.168.1.1 into your browser window and it will open the settings of your modem and from there you can configure your modem.

Please tell me the model number of your HP Modem so that i can help you more efficently.

Please ask for any clarifications.

Thanks

Modem for dial-up


Well I hate to be the one to break the news but their is no such thing as a fast modem. They are all 56Kbps which is slow....the only fast modem is a DSL modem, but that is outside the computer and it gets hooked up with your phone company or your Internet Service Provider. Check the invoice or packaging slip and see if it says "DSL Modem capability"..if so then you are ok but your ISP has to install it.

Get High speed for the love of god.

No just kidding, i know, some of us cant afford it at home.

Most likely the phone number that the modem dials into may need to be updated for your service provider. If i remember correctly, you usualy have a list of numbers in the modem settings pick a different one.

You can also call the provider and they will help you.

I would recomend just paying the $40 a month for a cable modem and high speed and hooking straight to your network ( NIC ). Dial up is slow and you spend more time messing with dropped connections and slow speeds.

If your in an area that doesnt provide it, then i feel bad for you.

Good luck

I'm a little confused how to install this router I just bought. Model #wrt54g2. do I put the cd into my desk top which is already connected to the internet or do I install the cd in the new laptop I just...


Hi sheena -Is your desk top hooked up throgh the router? If not, plug your modem into the wan port on the router. The router should have come with a couple of short cables, most likely blue and yellow. Use the blue to connect your modem to your router. You can check the manual just to be sure. Use the ethernet cable that had been connecting your desk top to your modem, and plug into one of the wired ports on the router. I imagine you'll be using wireless for your laptop. Make sure that it is on. Put the cd in your desk top and run from there. Follow the directions. If you need more help just add a comment and I'll be glad to assist you further. If this solves your probleb PLEASE rate this as fixed. Remember. Need help? Just holler Sheena.

Desk top 386 Dell, my son used for last 4 years in college on a network. Now I want to set it up for dial-up and I'm either missing a couple of steps or my modem is dead, plus I need a dial out number


Hi,
try using the internet connection Wizard. setup a new account and follow the steps.
Theres also hardware wizards to resolve any conflicts/issues et,c.
If you are asked for a number to access an outside line, leave blank. unless it,s asking for your area dialling code. i.e 0121 0r 0161 et,c ( UK )
