Connecting to my network


Its not a modem its a router. A Modem plugs in to a Telephone line. A Router plugs in to a Broad Band Line. A Modem connects to a RJ11 Cable. A Router Connects to a Coaxial Cabal, the router connects to a computer via wireless or ethernet after that. A Modem connects to a computer using RJ11 or RJ45 Cat4 Ethernet. Very different.

Router is connected to my laptop but my emachines computer isnt showing any connects


To connect your computer to a wireless router, you click the Refresh network list, then Choose your wireless network and then click Connect to your secured Wireless Network, it will asks for a Network Key before allowing you to connect into your wireless network. This Network Key is either the WEP, or WPA or WPA2 Encryption key that is used to configure the Wireless Router. The Passphrase is an alternate way to setup the Encryption key.
When you are requested for a Network Key, you can just enter the Passphrase that was used to configure the Encryption key in the wireless router.

Computer Running Slow


Okay, you have the same issue I used to have. I inherited a laptop from my mother, and she was the second owner. It was loaded with programs I didn't need, and had a zillion files tucked away. If you can go into your control panel and access the add or remove programs, go through it and remove every stinkin' one of the optional programs you don't ever use, or can do without. Be sure you know what you are removing. Next --and this may sound silly, especially if you have done it already-- you need to go into your homepage in your internet connection and clear all browsing history from every browser you use. These can include google, msn, explorer, firefox, etc. I find if I don't clear my browser frequently, my computer is a real *******. The next obvious step would be to get into all my documents files and delete any old files, such as photos that you don't want, a huge music collection, etc. I have all of my music stored on my D drive, because it has the same memory as my C drive, but is nearly empty. You can store and easily access all your entertainment files in D if you have a large capacity. I would perform this test: from your start menu, open my computer and right click your c, or main hard drive and click on properties. This should give you info on how much storage space you have left on the disc. If it is less than 50 percent, you may need to delete some old trash. Do the same with your d drive. If all else fails, you can go into your recovery program and see if you can wipe the computer, but that is a last resort. I had to do this with mine so I could program it to recognize me as the computer administrator. I was tired of fighting with a zillion hidden files I couldn't get into, much less locate. Hope this will help.

You don't say what model dell you have but try this: Restart the computer. During the boot up, when you see the Dell logo start pressing the F8 key. This will take you into the Advanced Boot Options. Arrow down and choose to "Repair Your Computer" then press Enter. You will need to click Next and login to the admin account. Click "Dell Factory Image Recover and DataSafe option and follow the prompts to restore to the default factory set up.
***NOTE: You will want to have backed up anything that you want to keep. This will wipe out everything you've done to the computer since you bought it. ***

If the local area connection icon specifies as network cable unplugged, then the computer has not sensed the connection between the computer to the cable modem / DSL modem, please reseat the cable behind the cable / dsl modem to the computer. If the icon still shows unplugged, then change the network cable between the two.

If the issue still persists, please revert with more details lik the kind of internet connection used and the reason for reinstalling.

I can't connect to the internet but I am connected


If you're look for a reliable free Antivirus program that won't interfere with your wireless connection, I'd recommend Avira free from here.
You could restore your system to a point before you downloaded the software by using System Restore. That's probably the easiest way to fix it.
Otherwise, let us know what OS you're using, on what computer, and what kind of router you have and we'll be happy to help you sort it out...or see networking help here.

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.
If I've managed to answer your question or solve a problem, please take just a moment to rate this post....thanks!

What you want to do is run System Restore prior to the day you restarted your computer.  Depending on your Service Pack 1or 2, you'll find System Restore by going to Start, All Programs, Accessories, System Tools.  If your Service Pack 3 then you'll find it by going to the Help and Support Center, and clicking on undo changes to your computer with System Restore.  Once it's restored, it should bring back your access to the wireless router/network.
