Question about Computers & Internet

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

Hi,

Improve the Fixya.com experience for everyone by voting!

The solution I'm suggesting works in my business (LAN installations) about 95% of the time. I trust that it will work for you.

Let's see if I can help you.

Begin by turning on your computer and your router

? Make sure your service provider has activated your account and services on the subscribed line. Please check with your service provider to confirm this.
? Make sure that you are using the latest drivers. You can download the latest driver from Driver Downloads Database.
? Make sure that you have entered the right username and password (case-sensitive) as given by your service provider. For example, in Australia: user@bigpond; in NZ: user.name.xadsl@xtra.co.nz.
? Open Internet Explorer;
? Click on 'Tools';
? Click on 'Internet Options';
? Click on 'Connections';
? Click on 'Setup'
? Click on 'I want to set up my Internet connections manually . . .';
? Click on 'Next';
? Click on 'I connect through a local area network (LAN);
? Clock on 'Next'
? Click on 'Next' [This is not an error];
? Click on 'No';
? Click on 'Next';
? Click on 'To connect to the Internet immediately . . .; and,
? Click on 'Finish'.

That should have you online

All the best

Hi,

Welcome to Fixya. The 130Mbps is the connection speed to the router. Not to the Internet.

You will get a reported 130Mbps, But, you arent really getting 130Mbps. of connection speed, its false. Try to check the package of your internet connection and run a speed test on both computer using Speedtest.net to test the real speed of your internet connection.

If you have question please let me know. Thanks using Fixya.

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.

IF you do NOT have DSL, "but I do not have DSL" (sic) then you must connect up to the internet, via a MODEM, the phone line connects to the Modem, the MODEM connects to the PC via Ethernet cable. Then you use the Connect to internet Wizard. You will need to enter your login and password, for your ISP, so you will be able to access the internet. You also must enter the ISP's PHONE Number to Dial up, FIRST, then you must enter your login, and password. Then you will connect up to your ISP, and be able to go onto the internet through them. That's it, really.
