Hi,
If you are using a high speed DSL or cable modem for your internet , you need to plug the cable coming from your DSL box to the laptop.
Restart your computer, and click on the big E icon on the desktop wallpaper to get it to work.
If you are using a dialup internet connection , you need to cal your internet service provider and he would help set that up on your laptop

Thanks

Hi,

If you intend to use the new laptop alone, then it would simply require unplugging from the old unit the Ethernet connection and plugging it into your laptop;

If however, you would still want to use the old with the new, then you would need a router to share the internet connection between the two. Additionally, if your new laptop has a wifi, then it might be to your advantage to get one of those WiFi AP (access point)/router.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

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........

Dell dimension 3000 won't see wireless network


Hi, I've jst been looking on the web at the Mimo routers, you may find this article interesting, it may help even though its a couple of years old?

http://www.behardware.com/articles/614-2/wi-fi-mimo.html

Pay attention to part about 802.11n compatibility?
Perhaps try changing the IEEE standard on the router to 802.11g in the set up pages, as it may be set at 802.11n, which your older wireless card will not see.

As to the acquiring ip address message, try using a static ip address, here's a good guide:-

How can i remove the hard drive from my packard bell club 79 computer?I have some pics on there i would like to put on my new pc but the old packard bell no longer connects to the net and as it had win98...


If you have a router with two thernet ports you can connect them together using this.
Otherwise you can take the hard drive out and connect it to your new computer but this can be tricky to do.
The other thing you could do is buy a USB hard disk caddy. Fit you hard drive into this and then connect it to the USB port of your new computer. Make sure the caddy will take your size and type of hard disk.

I have recently bought a packard bell easynote mx37-t-003 laptop with an integrated webcam, however after using search commands, scanner and camera app i still cant get it to work! any ideas?


If it is XP, you should just click on the Camera icon in Control Panel. If Vista you have to install an application. Try MSN Messenger and connect to a friend with video link or google picasa.

Yes! plugging it in on the Ethernet cable on the modem to the computer should get you online. If your not able to get online, you may want to check the following:

1. Make sure that the Ethernet adapter on the computer is enabled. If you can't find the Local Area Connection icon in your Network connections (control panel\network and sharing center), check if the network adapter is properly installed.

2. Some cable service providers require the MAC/Physical address of the Computer to get it online through the modem. If the old computer is working with the modem, you may want to contact your ISP and ask their assistance in getting you online using your new computer.

I have a computer hooked up to bell sympatico. How do I connect my new compaq to it? Thanks


If you have only a DSL or Cable modem, that doesn't have an integrated Router, then you'll need to get a router to use more than one computer. The broadband modem, will connect to the uplink port of the router, and give you usually 4 wired ports and up to 50 wireless connections.

Here is an example from linksys
