Do you remember installing a wireless adpater on the pc that you upgraded to win xp? if not, then you really need to get a wireless receiver. Or you can also check you network connections under control panel, see if you have a wireless network connection under LAN or highspeed internet, if not you really need to get a wireless receiver for your computer.

HP DESKJET D1360 HOW TO SET UP WIRELESSLY USING MAC


Are you trying to use MAC filtering. You would just need the MAC from the network setup screen and add it to your router/firewall.

If you are using a Mac (Apple) computer you would, providing you have a wireless adapter connected to Mac, just go into "System Preferences" and use the wizard under "Print & Scan". Make sure the networking on the printer is in on the same as your Mac.

Use the windows home network setup utility and create a home network. You will have to tell windows to share the files on the computer providing the source material. Both computers would have to have wireless capabilities in order for this to work as well.

I have a 2wire router, if I purchase a couple new laptop computers which are wireless ready, do I need to purchase wireless adaptors for networking?


No, not at all.
I can't even think of a newer laptop model that comes without wireless capability anymore.

Which 2wire router you have, determines the speed of your wireless network.Make sure when you buy a laptop, that it's wireless capabilities match those of the router. The standard today is 802.11g, backwards compatible with 802.11b. 802.11n is a new standard (backwards compatible to 802.11b/g), and both router and computer have to support this standard in order to use it.

Yes if you consult the manual that came with the router it will show you how to connect the modem to it and setup the DSL (PPPOE)settings. Some Modems though already have the PPPOE settings within the unit and then the router would just need to be set to automatic. You will need to configure from the PC but afterwards you can shut down all your PC's on the network at anytime.

Wireless router


hi frank its a new thing to have to go out and decide what router to purchase and install i use a linksys and have had good luck with the wireless connection quality . does his laptop have a wireless lan card installed most new laptops do have one but its worth a look to make shure it does. depending on how much you want to spend how far away does his laptop sit from location of router ? if not more than 10 ft go ahead and purchase a cheaper one 60.00 now if you want a better quality one go with the twin antenna linksys for about 130,00 and please make shure that he installs the security software that comes with the router and make a password and secure it for shure .i hope ive helped you decide on what router to purchase they all work fairley good .
as far as how they work they are all plug and play install the cd software first then follow instructions carefully and set up is 10 minutes away good luck by for now

Wireless network


If you were using Desktop PCs, then usually you need to install a WiFi Card to make it WiFi Capable (its like a LAN Card but with Antenna, or you can simply purchase a USB WiFi device if you dont want to open your Computer. if you were use a Laptop check for WiFi setting or switch on your Laptop and turn it on, make sure your WiFi driver is installed properly.

Connecting a router so I can use a second desktop pc


In addition to a wireless router you will need a wireless reciever for each PC you wish to have working simultaneously (assuming the PC does not already have a wireless networking capability) .

The wireless receiver is usually a USB or laptop PC slot device which you plug in to the PC and after installation of the necessary software (usually supplied with the device) you can surf wirelessly. The USB type wireless devices are about GB£20 to buy .

Whats the exact model # of the Speedtouch?
Well if your Modem doesn't have a WAN for a network cable (RJ-45) if all it has is a usb for connecting to a PC only I hope you have WindowsXP or Vista. Well what you can do is use your PC as a gateway like... What you would need to do is Plug the speedtouch into your PC with the usb... Plug the WAN from your router into your PC's network jack. Now you can go and do the Wireless/Network setup wizard and tell it your using a PC to connect other PC's to the net.

Trying to network xp pc to wireless laptop


Right click on the drive you want to share. Ex: C:\Vol-xx = name. In the pop up window click Sharing & Security. This needs done to all the drives you want access too. To share a printer. Everyone must have the printer drivers installed. The Pc that has a direct connection to the printer must also Share the printer on the network. Open Printer & Faxes, highlight the printer you want to share. Click File than click Sharing follow windows instructions.
Small suggestion regards to the wireless side of the network. Suggest you setup security so others close too you can not tap into your network. (common).
