Gateway M6319 Notebook PC

I have just purchased your Gateway M6319 Notebook and have not been able to get on line. I have AT&T DSL on my home computer and have talked with them about this. They checked the modem and it is functioning. they then helped me get to the "network Sharing" and determined that DSL capabilities are NOT on my brand new Laptop, yet, right on the box AND on the laptop itself it says that it has DSL loaded.
Can you please, please help me.

    Ronald. I'm sorry you are having such a problem. Let's review some basic information and assumptions in order to make it work.

    1. You are using a DSL (Digital Subscriber Line) box (sometimes called a DSL router) from AT&T...right? Did you connect it yourself or did the phone company connect it?

    2. You are using the cables that were provided with the DSL box. The cable coming from the AT&T box goes to the phone line AND another goes to your computer? Other cables may not be appropriate. The wire that comes from the street (or underground) that is provided by the telephone company now needs to be "split". The splitter box is usually a larger box (larger than the old "telephone connector" box) on the wall that has one "line" input and both "telephone" and "computer" outputs. If you plug into the wrong one then the DSL won't work.

    3. the cable coming from the "computer" side of the "splitter" is connected only to the DSL router.

    4. the cable coming from the DSL router is connected with an 8 wire cable to the "Ethernet" (not the modem port ) port on your computer.

    4. You have installed the network portion of your operating system. Assume that this is what AT&T helped you with.

    are you connecint to a wireless network using your new laptop, or are you plugged directly into your AT&T DSL using a network cable, also are any other computers using the same internet connection? If not can you test the internet connection using another laptop or desktop? Also, please try another network cable if you have one available.

From a quick search edrence89,

Pictorial disassembly of a Gateway NV53 series Notebook PC,

[The Gateway NV5302u is part of the Gateway NV53 series, just as your NV5378u is.
The heading is for replacing the DC Power Jack, but I thought the pictorial guide may come in handy ]

Drop down to the second line in the first paragraph, and click on NV53.
This is a PDF file. It may take up to 30 seconds before the first page comes up.
It may also take additional time for the file to fully download.

For additional questions please post in a Comment.

Windows Networking Issue

FIOS and DSL use different modems and or gateway devices. Sounds like you were using a DSL gateway device with networking setup and when you moved to FIOS, the tech did not duplicate your network on your new FIOS gateway. OR you had a 3rd party router e.g. Linksys that was removed from the setup when FIOS was installed.
Either way, Verizon is who you should contact. Just tell them your network went down after you moved from DSL to FIOS. Dont mention Microsoft or Livewebtv.

Want to be able to fax from computer even though DSL connected

I'm afraid I got bad news for you. The fax line and voice line are using the same frequency so you should be able to fax directly from your pc fax modem when using Dial up connection but in DSL the data and voice are using different frequency. So you wont be able to fax using DSL unless u\you use a separate fax machine.

Digital subscriber line (DSL) uses digital technology to bring high-bandwidth information over ordinary copper telephone wires. Digital data is transmitted to the computer directly as digital data (instead of analog) and this allows the telephone company to use a much wider bandwidth for transmitting the data to its destination. XDSL is a generic reference to the different variations of DSL, such as ADSL, HDSL, and RADSL. DSL services rely on an am radio wave that has a range of 600 KHz to 2.2 GHz. HP all-in-one and fax products are all ITU Group 3 fax devices that operate at about 200 KHz (below the DSL capability) and are not directly compatible with digital signals. However, if specified during the set-up of the DSL line, the signal can be separated so that some of the bandwidth is used to transmit an analog signal (for voice and fax) while the remaining bandwidth is used to transmit digital data. This allows for the use of the telephone or fax, and computer on the same line and at the same time. When inquiring about DSL with the service provider, specify the desire to use the phone line for voice or fax calls while connected through the computer to the Internet. I hope I explained the issue clearly to you.

New M6319 laptop freezing up

This will be with the memory or a software conflict. To be perfectly honest, this machine shouldn't be doing this since it's only three days old. I would take it back for an exchange. This is a good model and this is not a common problem with these. If you exchange it for the same model I think you'll find that this is a good machine and you'll see that it shouldn't lock up. I've got a Gateway that is approx two years old and it hasn't locked up five times since I've had it. Occasionally, yes, but five times in it's first three days, no. You're going to have bigger problems if you keep it.
