With a wireless connection, your PC can connect wirelessly to a network printer. In addition, you can set up your PC in a location where no phone line or cable connection exists. Outfitting your desktop to a wireless Internet connection is very easy. Just follow these simple steps and you'll be surfing the net wirelessly in a matter of minutes.
Find out if wireless Internet reception exists where your computer is located. If you're located very close to a W-iFi hotspot, like a coffee shop, you may be able to use this network to get wireless Internet for desktop PCs. Also, some apartment complexes and college dorms have free wireless Internet. Your neighbors may have wireless Internet too, which you can ask them if you can use. Buy a wireless network adapter for your desktop. You can obtain an adapter from most electronic stores. Be sure to get a wireless adapter with the proper strength, which depends on how far you are from the wireless hotspot. The easiest adapters to install are those that just plug into an available USB port. Set up your wireless Internet for your desktop PC according to the instructions that came with the wireless adapter. The usual procedure is to plug the wireless adapter into an available USB port. Windows will install the appropriate driver. After your PC recognizes the wireless adapter, select the "Connections" icon in the taskbar (represented by vertical bars). A list of available connections will appear. Select the desired connection. If you are prompted for a password, enter the appropriate password. Click "Connect." You are subsequently connected to a wireless network. Launch your browser and enjoy surfing the Internet wirelessly. If you are the owner of the wireless network, secure your wireless network with a password. To do so, navigate to the "Start" menu and select the "Control Panel." Then select "Network and Internet" and "Network and Sharing Center." Click "Change adapter settings" in the left pane. Double-click the icon of the appropriate wireless connection. The Wireless Network Connection status window appears. Click the "Wireless Properties" button. Select the "Security" tab and select an encryption type from the drop-down selection. Enter a password in the Network security key field. Make sure that the password matches the router settings. Press "OK" when done. Get a wireless internet router for your Internet connection if there is no wireless Internet already in your area. You can buy these online, or at electronic stores. You'll need to set up your router using the accompanying instructions and your own Internet service provider. This is best in a home with multiple computers.
You will have to open up your network connections Click start control panel network connections this may vary depending on your operating system look for local area connection if you see a red x or a yellow exclamation or question mark ! ? you will need to update or install the driver or it could be firewalled, If you are trying to connect through a modem/router you it should have come with a disk then you might have to connect the usb lead to your modem to get a connection then Click start control panel administration tools computer management device manager scroll to network adapters should see a yellow question ? exclamation mark ! or a red X right click install drivers. The driver might be on the disc supplied by your ISP internet service provider or the motherboard disc Click start type cmd press enter you will be in DOS mode type in ipconfig press enter you will see all o fyour internet connection details type in your default gateway adress into your internet search should read something like 10.0.0.138 Make sure you Ethernet/internet is enabled in bios restart your computer during the boot up process you will see on your screen a certain key to press to enter set up (BIOS) press and hold that key to enter bios using arrow keys navigate to integrated peripherals look for SiS On Chip Pci Device press enter scroll to SiS 10/100m press enter make sure its "Enabled"imake
Hope this helps.

Troubleshooting DSL Modems


Ever look at your DSL Modem and wonder what all those lights mean? Why do some flash, while others remain solid? What if your lights are different colors? How do you tell if your DSL Modem is working correctly?<br /> <br /> Each light on your DSL Modem represents a function. The light is an indication of whether that function is working properly. Sometimes the placement and title of each function can vary by modem manufacturer, but they are pretty standard in interpetation. If you look closely your modem, you might find that each function is labeled in small print to help identify them.<br /> <br /> A standard DSL Modem has a light for power, internet, ethernet, link and wireless connection. A healthy DSL Modem will have a steady green light that does not blink or flutter for all features other than internet, ethernet and wireless. A flashing or fluttering light indicates movement and useage. When you are connected to your DSL Modem wireless, the light for this feature will blink indicating a connection and/or active useage. If the internet connection is working properly the color of the light will be green. If the connection is working but experincing a problem the light can turn to yellow or orange. If the connection fails, the light on the DSL Modem can be red or absent depending on the problem causing the trouble. If your service is turned off by the provider, more than likely the light will be "off".<br /> <br /> If your lights turn a different color, are absent or your internet connection fails try power cycling your modem before reporting the trouble to your provider. Power cycling helps the DSL Modem to reset its connection and repair your internet services.<br /> <br /> If you are using a DSL Modem alone to connect to the internet (no additional router) you can power cycle it by first turning off your computer and then unplug the modem itself from the power source at the wall. Wait for 1 to 2 minutes and then plug it back into the power source and wait for the warm up to finish before rebooting the pc.<br /> <br /> The DSL Modem should go through the normal warm up procedures of blinking lights, making them all stable and solid green ect. You will know when its finished warming up when the features are set at solid green (other than eithernet, internet and wireless connection as explained above). When the modem finished the warm up, reboot your computer and check your internet connection.<br /> <br /> Power cycling your DSL Modem can help keep your connection healthy and running at optimal speeds.<br />

Having trouble 2Wire 1800hg router and Vista connectivity issues; dropping internet. Any ideas?


It could be a number of things. Most likely is interfearence. It could be caused by a router near your home that in using the same channel.Log into your router or use the 2wire control panel on your computer and change your channel to 11 or 1 .Also mixed mode wireless settings can be problematic.Try using 802.11b, 802.11g or 802.11n.   Another cause are 2.4 ghz cordless phones that use same frequency as the router.
Other things can wack it out as well like a microwave or if you are moving the notebook around the house the ductwork in your home could block the wireless signal.
I've had the same trouble for weeks. I broke down and bought a Belkin Wireless N router and had no trouble since.
Sorry for the long winded answer.

Double check your router settings to make sure your USB wireless adapter is permitted to use your wireless connection. You will probably find this under wireless security settings. I set up my wireless routers to only allow mac addresses of devices I specify, to prevent drive-by or neighbors using my connection.

Netgear connection to apple air book


Hi claire,

You will probably need to be more specific here. Are you having trouble getting an Internet connection via plugging your ethernet cable directly into the router, or with wireless?

Does your Netgear router have wireless security enabled? A classic issue with some Apple wireless products is that the Apple notebooks sometimes require a 128-bit WEP key (as opposed to the 64-bit you may be using). Please reply with more detailed information as far as what problems you're experiencing.
