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.

Hello, my internet service provider gave a preinstalled modem to use, however I would like to use my Linksys Wireless - G ADSL Home Gateway to be able to connect my devices to the internet wirelessly......


No. Your wireless router will not be recognized as a modem, nor will your service provider allow it if it would work. Plug the router into the modem.

Plug a cat 5 wire in from the yellow jack on the router to the same on the modem (it may not be yellow). The rest is software. Reboot everything and run the wizards depending upon the version of windows you are using, which you don't mention, BTW.

Your service provider may offer to help you set up your home network. Give them a call.

Thanks for your question @ FixYa.com

I just bought a laptop computer and I already had a desktop. My internet provider is Hugesnet Satelite. I bought a Netgear N600 wireless dual band router thinking I could just hook it up to my desktop...


The HN9000 should have an ethernet port. You will require two ethernet cables to connect the desktop to the router.
1. Connect the ethernet cable from the Modem to the Ethernet Input port on the Router (It is generally placed away from the other ports on the back of the router.) 2. Connect another ethernet cord from one of the output ports on the router to the desktop computer. 3. On the laptop, turn on your wireless card. The process for this differs from computer to computer. If you were to provide the model of laptop, I could provide you specific instructions. 4. The network setup should be complete.
If you need more help, let me know by replying to this solution. Thank you for using FixYa!

Are you trying to set up the router.
You can do it manually without the CD.
Make sure that your computer is able to go online
through the modem.
If your computer is able to go online through the
modem
Then you need to connect the computer to the
router and the modem to the router.
open the set up page of the router and change the
settings of the router according to the ISP.

Wireless Home network will not stay connected to internet


So you have a DSL modem connected to a router connected to a wireless router connected to both your computers? Sounds like you need to just get a wireless modem and throw all the routers away.

I can't get on the internet


>> do i have to call my internet service provider to activate my modem?

Yes.

Each modem has a unique "address", and your I.S.P. uses that address to authorize each DSL-modem that tries to connect to their network.

Or, if the two of you live in the same house/apartment, you should just buy a "router". Then, both computers can connect to the router, and the router connects to the DSL modem, and both of you can "share" the monthly fee for the _one_ Internet connection.

Want to hook laptop up to home computer via cable modem


You need a router or a wireless router to do that.
If your cable modem is wireless you can set directly via wireless network a connection with your laptop (the laptop also need a wireless card (if dont have any built in))
The connection must be done in this way

ISP ----->> Cable Modem ---->> Wireless Router o Router ----->> Computer ( 1, 2, or more)
