Question about Gateway Computers & Internet
Hi, this is a common problem, but can be a little trouble some.
I want you to try to connect to your modem or router using a wire (cat5, came with your modem) Take it out of your router (if you have one) and connect it directly to your computer's Ethernet port.
I want to first make sure an internet path is coming to your house and working.
If the wired works, then you at least have it that far, and we can go on.
If you have a wireless router, (it would help to know which one) then disconnect the cat5 connector from your computer and plug it back into the router's port (the one that is set off by itself)
Back to your computer, If there is a switch to turn on "wifi" (represented by a ((i)) then switch it to the on position.
In a standard windows configuration, the system tray is at the bottom of your screen with all the other icons. Look for an icon that either looks like and antenna or two computers with a bouncing red or green block between them.
If you have such an icon, double left click on it.
A new window should open up to reveal available wireless networks in your area.
Select the one at the top (generally the strongest signal will be in your house.) and select "Connect" at the bottom of the screen.
At this point you may have to enter a password, (check with who set the system up) or it will log you on.
This scenario is for a windows environment. It should work with most systems.
good luck and don't forget to vote!!!
