Yes, the mouse most likely uses Bluetooth to communicate with your laptop and is independent of your wired/wireless connection to the internet. The mouse should have come with an adapter that plugs into one of your USB ports. Plug it in and once the drivers load (automatically), your new wireless mouse should be working!

If you're Bell sympatico is a wireless modem/router and your laptop has built in wireless on it you just need to connect to the wireless signal of the Bell sympatico then that should be the time you can access internet with the laptop, But if your Bell sympatico is only a plain DSL modem you need to get a wireless router that will share the internet to your laptop and desktop so you can roam in your house with your laptop here is a sample of wireless router Linksys WRT54G.

Hope that helps........

I have an acer aspire 5715z/5315 ihave lost my wireless conection how do i switch my wireless on and off i carnt seem to find the butten


Without knowing the operating system I can tell you this much: go to Control Panel>Network Connections>Local Area Connection>Properties then view the adaptor configuration settings to see if Radio On/Off is a selectable option. Many laptops do not have a physical on/off switch.

I don't see why not..
are you trying to hook up both computers to your linksys router?
if you have 3 computers now... I'm assuming your old pc was connected directly to the router, your laptop was connected wirelessly and now you have a brand new computer that you also want to connect to the internet using your lynksis router.. you should have not problems doing it, wirelessly or using a wire...as long as your router has ports avaliable...

Try resetting your IP address:
The laptop may be trying to use the IP address from the old router.

1) Click Start (assuming Windows 2000, XP, or Vista)
2) Click Run
3) Type in CMD
This will take you to a black command box
4) Type in: ipconfig/release
The chart should show your IP address as 0.0.0.0
Once this has happened, proceed to step 5
5) Type in: ipconfig/renew
You should now see a new IP address listed.

Also note that you need to set up your network key (assuming that you are using one) on both the router and laptop.
Make sure that your router is set up to perform as DHCP server.
