I am trying to connect my tablet to xfinty


You have to connect the tablet to your Arris 862 gateway "comcast modem" the key to your wireless is on the bottom of the modem on white sticker. The key is case sensitive most generally all in caps. Your network name is as well on the sticker should be HOME- and a 4 digit number. To get the tablet to connect you need go into "settings" on the tablet and then tap "wireless or may say WIFI", Find the comcast modem/router name "the Home- whatever number it is click it then it should prompt you to type in the network key.

I had no instructions, how long does it need to charge to have a complete charge?How do I use the web not connected with a phone line? Why don't they send a manial with the computer? I really need to...


Very few computers come with printed literature now, other than a "quick setup guide" so that you can know how to turn the thing on and start using it. Other documentation is either included on a CD or is in a folder on the computer's hard drive. That quick guide should tell you how to find a more detailed manual.

Laptop computers aren't different from desktops, except that everything is in one package. You still turn on the power, wait for Windows to start up, and click on things just like you're used to. Sometimes it takes a little time to adjust to the touchpad on a laptop when you're used to a mouse,. The same may be true for the keyboard since the keys don't have the same travel as a desktop's. But you can plug in a regular mouse or keyboard (or both) using USB ports if you want. Some people do that if they're using the laptop at home on a desk. Otherwise Windows is still the same old Windows.

Just like with a desktop, a laptop needs some kind of connection to the Internet for Web access. Most people now have high-speed "broadband" Internet service through the cable or phone company. A device called a modem makes the connection between your computer and your service provider. The link from the modem to your computer, the local network, is called an "Ethernet" connection. This connection can be done with a cable that plugs into jacks on the modem and computer. An Ethernet plug looks like a regular phone plug, but bigger. In the picture below, the Ethernet plug is on the left with a regular phone plug for comparison.

Because a laptop is meant to be portable, they all have wireless Ethernet capability ("wi-fi") built in. The wi-fi circuitry in the laptop scans for wireless networks and gives you a list of those it finds. You pick the one you want to use, the connection is made, and you can surf the Web without wires. Most Internet service providers supply a modem with the wireless capability included so you can have your own wireless network at home. Your service provider should help you set up the network when they install service, and many sites offer detailed "how-to" information.

Most laptops still come with a dial-up modem as well, so if that's how you've been making your Internet connection you still can go that way. (Don't laugh! Some people still use dial-up service because it's good enough for them. Also in some remote areas it may be all that's available.) In addition to the Ethernet jack, the laptop will have a regular phone jack for that connection.

As for battery use, the time it takes to charge the battery depends on the battery and the laptop. Laptops typically show an icon near the clock at the bottom of the desktop, showing you the state of the battery's charge. It may take anywhere from one to several hours to fully charge. The time you can run the laptop on battery power also varies depending on the battery and computer. The manual (which should be on the computer or a CD, remember) should give you a general ideal of the times for your computer.

I hope this helps clear things up for you. If you have more questions, just post a comment and I'll try to to help further. Thanks for using Fixya!

How do i hook up my linksys wireless-g broadband router wrt54g-someone disconnected it


Disconnect the power to each unit (except computer, shut it down). After you connect the modem,router and computer, power up the modem,then the router,then the computer.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it and give a testimonial for my response

Thanks, Joe

I just got a new laptop. I have a wireless router hooked to a modem. I'm able to connect via the aforementioned hardware on this computer, but not on my new laptop. Any help?


On the new laptop go under control panel to search for available unsecured networks in the Internet and Sharing section.

Open up Internet Explorer and try to connect.

Conecting acer notebook


what do you mean by hook it up? Do you mean internet service?
All new laptops have Wi-Fi capabilities, but you must be in range of a free service. In order to get dedicated service, you will need to either purchase an aircard from a provider such as sprint,verizon,AT&T, or get hooked up through your local phone company(DSL), or cable service- they will provide you with the modem.

I have an old hp laptop and a cable modem internet connection currently on a new computer. how do i go about configuring the internet connection from one computer to the other?whenever i plug the modem...


OUR YOU TRY TO CONNECT BOTH LABTOPS TOGETHER TO TRANSFER THE INFORMATION.

THE CABLE MODEM HAS AWAY TO CONNECT TO THE NEW PC.

YOU NEED TO CONTACT YOUR INTERNET PROVIDER AND EXPLAIN YOU HAVE OLD CABLE MODEM AND YOU WANT TO UPGRADE TO THE NEW EQUIPMENT SETUP BUNDLE, THEY WILL SEND YOU A BOOK, CDROM OR DVD, THAT WILL TALK YOU THREW THE NEW PROCIDURES OF HOOKING UP THE NEW SYSTEM.

THE NEW AND OLD SYSTEMS ARE NOT COMPATIBLE IN ANY SINCE BECUASE THE WINDOWS VERSIONS, UPGRADES, SERVICE PACKS, WHAT THE SPEED IS, AND IF YOU HAVE 16BIT, OR 32BIT OR 64BIT SYSTEM, THERE ARE SOME 8BIT SYSTEMS BUT I HAVENT SEEN ONE IN A LONG TIME.

Adding laptop to home system through Belkin59G .


Good Day!

I believe you are trying to connect wirelessly using your laptop to your wireless router(Belkin 59G). Try to hook it up first on your computer and check if you can go online.

If yes, then that's the time you go to the router's set up page and check the wireless security of the router so that you can connect wirelessly.

If not, then you have to reconfigure the router and the modem. If your internet service provider is cable you can just turn off the router then the modem and waitfor 5 seconds. Turn on the modem, wait for the lights to turn on then the router. After that, check if the computer will be able to go online when connected directly to the router.

You need to contact your isp, they would be able to send test signals to your modem and make sure your modem is functioning properly, then they could help you troubleshoot.

Cannot obtain internet


if you already have an ethernet card installed in the laptop, then it should be fine. did you try rebooting the modem that you are hooking the laptop to? Sometimes with different ISPs that is one of the major issues.
