I'm having problems connecting to the internet via ethernet cord. (Prior to our move to Singapore, I had always just used wireless connection.) When I attach the ethernet cord, no lights appear on my modem or my laptop to show connection. The other option for connection is via USB cable but my laptop does not detect the cable modem. Service technician from my local internet service provider believes that my LAN card is faulty. DELL technical assistance suggests replacing the motherboard. I assume replacing the motherboard is quite expensive in terms of labor and parts, so I am thinking that buying a router to go wireless is the best solution. Any other thoughts on how to resolve the problem?

Re: Network problems connecting to internet
Hi. If Dell is correct, then yes, it would be expensive. Your other alternative is to buy a PCMCIA Ethernet Card. They range from about $20 to $40. Or, you could go with what you suggested and do wireless via a wireless router.

You can manually configure the time machine to accept wireless signal from the router or extender. If you setup WEP on the router or extender, make sure you setup WEP on the time machine as well. For instructions in setting up wireless settings of Time Capsule click on this link -->>http://www.apple.com/timecapsule/wireless.html Hope this works for you.
Basically you need to have your wireless router connected to the modem via a Ethernet cable this allows the signal to be received in another part of the house via wireless signals, after you have done this turn on your ps3 and go to network settings, click connect to internet then wireless network. After you have done this make sure you have all the security settings next to you if needed.
When working with routers, CAT-5 cables are the more usual cable used. Your modem's Ethernet Port --- connect it via cable to the router's WAN input. Connect one of the router's LAN outputs to your computer's LAN input with another CAT-5 cable. Go through the appropriate Router Setup by putting http://192.168.1.1 into your Internet Explorer, with ' admin ' for User Name, and no password (just press Enter in Password frame). Once you are in to the router setup, you can select your Network Name (SSID) and then implement whatever Security you might want to use. You should be up and running by now, nhave lots of fun!
USB to PC is fine, make sure you have the original installation disk for it. Then you can connect the Xbox via network cable. There shouldn't be any problem as your modem can take 2 connections by the sound of it.
Well, I would guess that if you are hooked up now, then you have a wireless router. If this is the case then you should have rj-45 (ethernet) ports on the back of it also for lan hook-up also. Must come with atleast 4 LAN ports, 1 WLAN port (for the incoming internet signal from your cable/dsl modem), so if you use a reg. ethernnet cord, then yes you should be fine hooking your ps3 to your network(via ethernet cable to your wireless router from the ps3). Hope this helps...
Let me verify your network configuration with you. You have your modem connected to the WAN/Internet port of your router via an ethernet cable and then your PC connected to your router via another ethernet cable, correct?
If this is your setup, then try this:
Unplug the power cord from the modem & router
Plug the power cord into the modem and wait for it to boot up (most modems have an "Internet/Connection" light to indicate they are connected to the ISP)
Plug in the power to the router, wait for it to complete the bootup process (usually when the lights stop flashing it's done), and see what happens.
