Right-click on the network icon is the sys tray (bottom right) and select Repair..." Also make sure your laptop wireless card has broacasting set to on (usually Alt-F1 or F2 will turn on/off).

depending on your location - check with others to see who they use, then either call them or go online to check availability, pricing and sometimes you can even order online! I have AT&T Uverse and if you go to ATT dot com- then go to SHOP tab, you can see availability by your address and order internet - TV- and even phone service. It will also show different pricing according to the speed of internet. You want faster if you watch videos and movies online. You also may have a Cable company in your area, where I live it is Cox Cable and Time Warner Cable companies. So you may have to search online or ask neighbors who they use and go from there and find their website to call them or order online. At&t I ordered, then got the Wireless Wifi router box so can hook up main computer and use your laptop or other devices with it wirelessly. so keep that in mind when ordering also - my neighbor doesn't have any laptop or any other stuff so he was happy to get a Wired router, with No wireless wifi connection

When I did this, my wireless began working again.

I am trying to setup up a D-Link DES-1016D, 10/100 Fast Ethernet Switch to allow 5 laptops to connect, 1 cat 5 is connected to another switch that will provide these 5 laptops internet how can i do this? I...


The Simplest Way of doing this is this:

You will need just 1 switch and 5 Straight-Through cables.

(This is Provided that your laptop will connect to the internet through another method. e.g (Though a USB Modem or WIFI) ).

Connect the Main laptop to the internet through either a USB Modem or a WIFI.

Next, Connect a straight-through cable to the LAN Port of the laptop, and the other end to one of the ports of the switch.

On the network connections page, right-click on the ethernet adapter, go to TCP/IP, and give the laptop a static IP-Address, e.g 192.168.0.1 and Subnet 255.255.255.0

For the other laptops, connect each one of them to the switch using the straight-through cables, and on their ethernet adapter TCP/IP Properties, give them different IP Adresses, but in the same subnet. e.g

192.168.0.2 and 255.255.255.0 for the 1st one
192.168.0.3 and 255.255.255.0 for the 2nd one
192.168.0.4 and 255.255.255.0 for the 3rd one, ....and so on.

Next, in the default gateway for these other laptops, put the IP-Address of the First laptop that is connected to the internet. i.e 192.168.0.1.

Also repeat the same IP Address of the 1st laptop in the Preferred DNS Server for these other ones.

Next, setup home or office network on all of them,

follow on-screen instructions and when you get to the place where you have to select the type of network setup, Just select :

"This computer connects directly to the internet........" for the 1st laptop,

For the others, select : " This Computer Connect through a residential gateway or other computer on my network.".

Then give them all the same workgroup name, and accept file and printer sharing for all of them.

In case you are using Windows Vista.
The only different things include:
When you get to the TCP/IP Place, select TCP/IPv4 and Not TCP/IPv6.

Also, When you are changing the workgroup, all you need to do is to right-click on My Computer Icon, then Properties then go to Advanced, then Select Computer Name, and change the workgroup from there and restart the computer.

What I have told you is a typical, very easy network setup, and I do hope it helps you out.

Keep me posted about the problem.

Hope it helps you out.
Good luck
