I want to put usb wireless adapter on my old gateway Ess 500 computer so my 5yr old grandson can play his online games what kind of adapter should I buy


The friendly user that I recommend is Belkin wireless adapter ( assuming you got wireless modem)> If you don't have wireless modem you'll need to buy wireless router as well to be install in your main computer

Missing local area network


It is possible that the drivers for your modem, or wireless card that you have in your computer wasn't on the disk that you had. That came with your comptuer that you installed on your new hardrive.

go to http://drivers.com/

They have a Free Driver Scan program that you can scan your comptuer, see if your missing or need to update any drivers for what you have. Then you can download the drivers for free.

Good luck.

Please rate me, and give feed back, or recommend me it be much helpful.

D-link router DI-604 was working (networking all 3 of my computers) fine with comcast internet until last week when we upgraded to their "Triple Play package" and they put in a new modem. Now I...


Since you have a new modem the DI-604 needs to be reconfigure to work with the new modem , if you have the setup CD for the router yuo can just simply run it so it will configure the router to work with the new modem but if not you can manually configure the router by accessing its setup page where youc an do some changes on the router settings including the internet connection settings if you're not familiar on how to do that it will be better if you can contact a tech support group that can walk you through with the process, you can contact this number for help 1-877-787-8749 they are open 24/7....

My computer says there is no internal modem., I have a e-machine model w3650


Normally, if the operating system no longer detects a modem physically installed in the system, it is likely the modem has failed. If you have had any thunderstorm activity or a power surge recently, there are good odds the modem was taken out by the jolt.

You can try reseating the modem in it's slot (it may have worked loose) and inspect it for burn marks or other damage while there.

If the system is under warranty, contact E-Machine and see if they'll replace it. If not, then buy a new modem, you can find them on line for little $$.

Network adapter not showing up in device manager


The tech was incorrect - your network adapter is just not recognized by the system. If you install the correct drivers for your particular network adapter it should be recognized, which should then solve your problem. Search the Gateway website for network drivers for your particular desktop, and if the network adapter was added (not built into the computer) then determine the manufacturer and model of your network adapter, then search the manufacturer's website for the correct drivers.

Even easier, if you still have the original disks that came with your computer and/or network adapter, they should include the correct drivers.

Hope this helps!

When I try to reinstall my router I can't get beyond the first step as the disk thinks our computer is not connected to the internet when it is. It convinces my computer that it is no longer connected....


Step 1: Turn off your computer, router, and disconnect the power to the modem.

Step 2: Connect one cable between the modem and the router's internet port

Step 3: Connect another cable between the router and the computer.

Step 4: Turn on the computer, then the router, then the modem - in that order.

Step 5: Now try running the setup disk.

Explanation: The modem has a security feature that disallows more than one device from connecting to it at one time. Once a specific device is connected, the modem expects that device to be connected at all times. If you unplug your computer from the modem and plug in the router without disconnecting the power to the modem, the connection will be rejected. This probably explains the reason for the error message you were receiving.

Furthermore, you do not need the installation disk in order to install your router. Open your browser and type http://192.168.1.1 in the address bar. A username and password screen will appear, the default is usually admin/admin for both, but if that doesn't work just try admin in the password field. When you have successfully logged into the web utility, you will be able to alter the settings at your discretion. For the most part the router will work upon proper cable connections, however you will want to enable security features to prevent attackers from gaining access to your computer.

MODEM FRIED, NOW I GET COM1 ERROR WHEN REINSTALLING VIA CD(S)


If it's a separate modem card, replace it.

If it's the built in modem, you'll need replace the mother board.

If you have an extra slot, you might be able to install a cheap add-on modem card which should override the built in. But that's a long shot may not work but worth a try.
