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 : )

if it is laptop and it shows full bars at the bottom of the screen, like you have excellent or good signal, - then something is wrong with your router, try reseting your router holding reset button for 30 seconds, it should bring it to factory settings.. after 1 min try to reconnect your laptop to your wireless network
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
well maybe you have to connect properly, fist of all i only know the windows vista version but go to .start, connect to, then a list of all available routers will appear, select yours (or the 1 your using). it will then ask you for a password, type it in. click connect. wait for it to load and there you go
i hope that helped
make sure everything (hardware/software) are in good working condition i.e properly pre-installed, then click on start, and interet connections, the wizard will ask you on how you intend to connect to the internet, just make sure you choose the correct options and off you go. you'll be on. good luck.
hi, i seems u have installed the B T correctly, now to connect to the internet u need to creat a DUN (Dial Up Networking) there you can provide the ISP dial up No. Username etc...if u can see a Bluetooth icon on the right bottom corner, right click on it, u will have a option for DUN there,once there u will figure it out..let me know..
