Re: no internet connection
From what I understand you may already have a wireless device attached to your machine already,probably installed when you were at your last place at the appartments,
If it is picking up a wireless signal from somewhere then this means you need to set up the wireless network permissions for that signal or have a wireless axis point installed so you can have connectivity via wireless,
Cheaper option is to go cable via rj45 port across a network or
via modem (ext or int) as long as you have phone account & ISP account for connection.
Everything sorted now,you should be good to go.

Re: no internet connection
You could try one of a few things.
1, get a wireless card if it does not have one already,
2. get regular internet from an ISP
3. Reset the network connections and make sure all cables are connected properly,
4. Set up a home network and use a second computer that has a reliable internet connection
5. move the tower around to see if it can catch a wireless signal,
6 (and last that i can pull from my head) Is to get a wireless signal expander to lengthen the range of current wireless around your house.
a 6ya Technician can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

look when this type of problem occurs,the first suspicion is the ISP in fact.And i wouldnt put it past them to snoop on people like this. Logicaly the second bet is some sort of corrupted code but this is untested terrrotiry.Re-install of OS would be a first.
Before spending your money on a new router & possibly having the same issue again, you might want to call your ISP & ask them to reset the mac/ip binding. Then, make sure your router is the first device to connect. Some ISPs create this binding which doesn't expire for several hours during which time a new device will not be allowed to bind. Just call the ISP to be sure. Otherwise, your new router will yield the same result.
>> do i have to call my internet service provider to activate my modem?
Each modem has a unique "address", and your I.S.P. uses that address to authorize each DSL-modem that tries to connect to their network.
Or, if the two of you live in the same house/apartment, you should just buy a "router". Then, both computers can connect to the router, and the router connects to the DSL modem, and both of you can "share" the monthly fee for the _one_ Internet connection.
I believe you will need to have an AT&T (AT&T Uverse?) technician scheduled to come to your home to check on your WiFi connection. . We have AT&T Uverse for our Internet service provider and experienced WiFi speed slowdown a couple of years ago. We telephoned the AT&T service number, spoke with an AT&T Customer Service Representative for technical issues. He scheduled a repair technician who solved our problems.
You will need your account number and PIN when you speak with the Customer Service Representative.
As you already have the modem you only need a router. In all cases the modem connects to the WAN port on the router.
I think your best bet surely would be to go for a wireless router though? Then you wouldnt have to trail ethernet cables all round the house. I'm sure your laptop has a wireless adaptor built in unless it;s very old.
I always use Netgear networking stuff so forgive me posting a link to a nice 54G wireless router :-) :
connection is OK, try to move the router or the computer close. till you have a good connection. then start move away, till you start to have problem. that is the max distance you can go away from the router.
How far are you running the CAT5 cables from house to house? CAT5e only has a solid range of about 150ft, and anything near 100ft is pushing it. You may also need to use CROSSOVER cables when plugging routers into other routers.
Also, who has the actual internet connection? I'm assuming House 2 does. One big problem is a router is your Gateway address. And, if house 2 is the only one with a valid Internet connection (via DSL or Cable, etc), then the router in house 2 is the only "true gateway". And, all 3 houses need to be in the same physical network (i.e. 192.168.1.0 range or whatever), and all computers should have the same Gateway address...which would be the IP address of the router in House 2.
What you really need in this situation is 1 router and 2 switches. Put the router in House 2 and put switches in House 1 and 3. That would be the best way to handle this problem. It would also end your connectivity problems.
