Does your computer's video-card have an 'SVGA' output connector, or a DVI output connector?
Does your TV have a 'SVGA' input connector,
or a HDMI/DVI input connector?

If so, use an appropriate cable between the computer and the TV.

Right-mouse click anywhere on your computer's "wallpaper" image.
Click Properties.
Click Desktop.
You should see two rectangles, labelled '1' and '2', representing your two screens (LCD and TV).
Click "extend my Windows desktop onto screen #2".
Now, you can drag-and-drop a video-window off the edge of the LCD screen onto the second screen (the TV).

Hi, you can use basic video cables to get your TV to act as a monitor. It depends on which ports your computer and TV have. You can use an S-video cable, a serial cable (with the blue connector that many monitors use), an HDMI cable, or a DVI cable. If both your computer and your TV both have any of these same ports, all you need is the cable and you can have your TV receive video signals from your computer.

Hope that helps!

What video "input" sockets are on the side/back of your TV -- HMDI? S-Video? VGA ? Composite? Component? Coaxial?

What video "outputs" does your computer have -- HDMI? S-Video? VGA? Composite? Component? Coaxial?

Have you considered using a Google "ChromeCast" device -- it connects to a HDMI-input on your TV, and software on your PC wirelessly transmits the video signals from your computer to your wireless router to the wireless-receiver inside the ChromeCast ?

Tip

Getting the most out of a Home Network


A wired connection is still the best way to get maximum download and upload speeds because your computer is directly connected to your gateway/router via an Ethernet cable. While this method offers consistent speed, it might not be convenient running multiple PCs and Laptops with a wire in your home.

Improving your wireless connections:

1. Do not use wireless connections where it is not needed or not important.
Devices that are not moved frequently such as a printer or a desktop PC can use the ethernet cable to minimize traffic in the wireless connection. Some home users use a wireless adapter for their desktop PC to connect wirelessly which I think is irrelevant not unless your desktop PC is really far from the router. Most routers provide 4 ethernet ports which you can use for the printer and desktop PC.

2. Make sure that your Wireless Network has WEP/WPA enabled.
All routers are equipped with security features that can provide passwords to your network. A secure network is less susceptible to unathorized use of your network. The more users use your network, the slower it becomes.

Sample video on how to secure your network using a LinkSys Router:



3. Get a better range.
Depending on how your home is designed, your wireless gateway may not be able to reach certain parts of the home, but you may be able to improve access to those trouble spots. There are several companies that have developed wireless repeaters (sometimes called a signal booster), devices that can pick up the signal from your router and extend that signal to other parts of the house. It should be noted that any repeater has its own limitations and the greater your distance from the repeater the weaker your signal and the slower your speed will be.

4. Change your wireless channel to reduce interference.
You may experience weak or dropped signals if a cordless phone or any other electronic device and your wireless router share the same frequency channel. A potential fix for this issue is to change the channel, thereby reducing frequency interference. The wireless channel can be can be accessed in the wireless settings of your routers interface. Channels to choose from are Channels 1 to 11. This should be done in a trial and error method, choose whatever channel delivers the most speed.

Sample video on how to change the wireless channel on a Zoom Router:




5. Make sure that you are running the latest firmware and driver updates.
One of the easiest steps to improve your connection speed is to make sure you are running the latest software updates for your wireless adapter. If you are, the next step would be to check if your network card has been updated with the latest drivers. To confirm that you have the latest drivers available, go to the wireless card manufacturer's website and look for a Support and/or Driver link. If you have a built in wireless client (one that cannot be removed from your PC), check to see if your PC manufacturer has issued any updates.

The above tips has greatly improved our home network which consists of a Prolink router, 2 netbooks, 1 laptop, 1 desktop pc, 1 printer and an occasional use of mobile phones to connect to the internet.

Thank you for using FixYa!
Have a great day!

Can i use my WRT120N on neighbors WiFi Network


Hello there,

You cannot use this router to connect to your neighbour's router wirelessly. It is possible to share your neighbours internet connection with this router, only if you run a cable between. You will need a Range Extender or a Wireless repeater for this purpose.

Can this tv model do a wireless connection to my laptop? I have a wireless router - WGR614 Netgear, and an HP Pavilion entertainment PC. Thank you, Diane


Your computer is built to acquire wireless signals made possible with routers as link stations. Also, the computer is capable of transmitimng signals with the same process to any device with conditions explained. First, TVs would acquire wireless signals with builtin wireless routers to recognise external media requirng intergration. Performing sigal transmittion compartibility checks should produce results of whether your computer is capable of communicating with the computer at a wireless level. Refering to the TV user guide ascertain the wireless capabilities with respect to computer to TV media communications. Every possible signal connectivity is acquirable with performing technical diagnostic checks to ascertain the missing links. For example, modern devices are capable of transmittions across mediums achievable at the users own experimentation.
Good luck

In order for you to make computer to wireless with your existing wireless router, first thing that you need here is a wireless adapter that will serve as a receiver for your computers to pick up the signal from your router.
Once you already have a wireless adapter on your computer you can now detect the signal of the router and connect to it and that should be fine after that.

Eee PC 900 has problem with wireless connection


Hi terryandy,

I am using the Eee PC from Taiwan also. It is running good.

Based on your scenario, have you tried changing another new router?

Your description of having "out of range" is highly probable due to router hardware failure.

Try replacing the router and update us again.

Thank you.
