New laptop & internet connection

Hi! I just bought a laptop today and really don't know too much about computers. I need help on how to connect to the internet! Someone told me all you had to do was plug in the cable from my internet at home into the laptop, so I did but it kept saying something about not having a network. What do I need to buy to connect? This is so confusing to me. : )

If it matters, I bought a Toshiba...not sure on the model but it was the one on sale for $549 : )

Any help would be great! Thanks!

    So no matter what I will have to purchase some type of internet? I thought you could just somehow plug it in from my house's main computer and use that and same thing at school. This may sound dumb...but what is a lancard? The guy who sold me my laptop didn't go into detail about what was all needed and didn't talk much about the internet thats why I'm so confused! Thanks

Connect using an Ethernet cable first of all. Once all set up, THEN go wireless using security code password for wireless.

Do the same for each new computer. Ethernet direct connection first, then wireless once you KNOW it's working.

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

First congratulation on your new wireless router, not the worst by these days :-)

You unplug your internet connection, where your computer now connects to the internet.
Then, you use the short cable to connect between the modem and the router in the one named WAN.
Next to this, is four called LAN, - you connect your computer to one of these (which one don’t matter).
Then you use the CD that came with the router, and follow each step.

It is very important that you set up the Admin password, so that your neighbor can’t access your router and change the setup.
Then in "Wireless ->Wireless security" setup one of the keys.
Allso the SSID, your own network "name".

Write everything down, as you have to set up the same on your laptop later.

If you need additional info, do come back, I’m here to help you.

/Teis -> if this is enough, don’t forget to vote
