Router issue for a new Compaq Laptop

I need help with figuring which kind of router I need for my laptop. I have High Spped internet at home on my desktop. And my cable company for which my high speed is with, said I needed to get a router. Can you advise me on which one to get? And also does it travel with me or just stay at home for use there?

You will need to check with your cable company as to their requirements. Most have specific routers they will gladly sell you, or you can buy something which meets the requirements, very likely, from some other place for far less money.

Please post back if you need further help, otherwise thank you for using and rating FixYa!

    Great! Glad to hear it's going to work out! Thank you again for using FixYa! (By the way, I think that is probably a good choice - wireless-n is still on the "new" side, but my experience has been good with it and with Linksys.)

HP Compaq 6720s I cannot enable WLAN


You must start out by narrowing the problem down. Here are some things to try
First reset your router. If this fixes the issue you may need a new router. But it may not be a problem as long as you do not have to reset it often.

Try seeing if another system will connect to your network. If you have a smart phone most of them are able to connect over wifi. If this works then the issue is most likely with your laptop.


Take your system to somewhere with free wifi to see if it is able to connect there. If it is able to connect there then the problem must be with your home network and not your laptop. If it is with your home network then most likely the problem is the router.

My Compaq presario CQ50 is having internet issues...


Run windows diagnostics and if that doesnt work, open up the command prompt in administrator mode and type in /ipconfig renew and after that type in /ipconfig repair and see if that helps. Also look in internet options and under connections click on lan and check that there are no numbers in the proxy box as this can sometimes cause issues if you have used any software to hide your ip address.

Need help with Wifi Connection with COMPAQ EVO N610C LAPTOP


First you will need a router which will enable you to create a wireless network for your internet connection. I recommend, if you're purchasing online, to use Tigerdirect. Then you would need a USB wireless adapter for your laptop which will enable it to communicate with the wireless router and establish an internet connection.
Below are some links for the most affordable and best rated products you need.

Bought a toshiba satel laptop and want to router it to dell dimen


You don't need a router for the laptop it has a wireless card in it already, buy a router for your home PC and I would buy a linksys with cap 5 network cables and wireless connections so you can use the printer off of the home computer PC. If you have high speed Internet you can request for a router for free with a wireless and cap 5-cable capacity.

How do I get internet on my laptop from my pc not using a cable?


what you would need to get is a wirless router. If you have high speed internet then you can plug the internet modem into the wireless router and then plug your main pc into the router via an ethernet cable and then set up your laptop to pick up the signal wirelessly. If you have dial up internet then you would still need a wireless router but it is a little more complicated. You could hook up the router to your main pc and then set up internet connection sharing so that way your laptop could pick it up wirelessly. hopefully this helps.

Home computer is connected but cannot get laptop to connect


If your router has a password, it needs to be typed into the other laptop, also the router may not be giving out enough IP addresses, so go into the router configuration (usually on the computer that can connect to the internet by typing 192.162.1.1, or 2.1 or something similar usually ending in .1 , into the address bar (where the www. goes) in internet explorer. Explore those settings a little, be sure to disable anything you see requiring security or and kind of filtering (wether it be IP mac address, etc)

Also, make sure that your laptop can connect with the router in the first place. If it can't then there could be an issue with the laptop, like you could have a wireless N router, and your laptop may only have a wireless A card (which wouldn't usually work).

I hope this helps somewhat.
Stay spicy and happy lappying :)
