My Dell Inspiron 560 suddenly stopped connecting to internet through cable-modem.


Onboard adaptor hardware failure? Or is it missing Drivers?
Wireless adaptor - did you install drivers for adaptor? Did you check that WiFi on the adaptor is switched on?


On a side note: I've found that USB 2.0 Wireless N adaptors are the best for connectivity, as they have their drivers on the adaptor, are fully plug and play (Vista/7/8 and even some models on XP). I recommend Transcend (brand name).

Can the sr1123wm go wireless


yes, you can definitly connect your desktop computer to the network wirelessly. you just need to have a wireless adaptor and i prefer you to have a 2wire brand adaptor for its much easier to download a driver on it so you can able to use it wuicly and browse using your desktop computer that wil be connected wirelessly.

Im already connected on my laptop. got a desktop and want to know what i need to get to connect it to wireless broadband?


So you have a laptop , have a desktop . Get yourself a wireless router. Assuming you have that as well , all you need to do is
1. Scan the wireless networks in your laptop. Look for the wireless switch in the task bar 2. Get a Wireless Adaptor for your desktop and have it installed .
If you have both of these, you should be good to go

SONY VAIO VGN-NR21Z DOESN'T SEE WIFI


Be sure that your wifi button is ON
Be sure that your wireless network is working
Check your wireless router settings
Check if you see any other wireless network available on your computer

Test connection, see if you pulled an IP address
  1. Go to the Windows desktop
  2. Select Start then Run
  3. In the text box type: cmd (WIN98/SE type command)
    At the command prompt type: ipconfig
4. What does it read as the IP address?
* If it reads 192.168. something dot something then you are pulling
an IP address and are connected to the network. The problem is
software related, check your firewall, and wireless card configuration.
Also check any WPA or WEP encryption keys. Check with the respective
manufactures.
* If it reads 0.0.0.0 for the IP address you are not connected to the network.
* Check your connection configuration and the adaptor.
* Check with the respective manufactures.

STEP TWO/ Basic troubleshooting continued....Testing the adaptor

1. Go to Windows desktop
2. Select Start then Run
3. In the text box type: cmd (WIN98/SE type command)
A DOS window will open.
4. At the prompt type: ping 127.0.0.1 (reserved IP address for all adaptors)
5. Check the line that reads "packets sent = 4, Received = 4, Lost = 0

A. Zero is good, the adaptor is working. Again check the connection
configuration,and the adaptor configuration.
It may be a power issue especially with older or less expensive computers
or wireless cards.
* Check the antenna location, are you inside or outside, look for interference.
* Check with the respective manufactures.

B. If it reads all 4 packets lost, the adaptor is not functioning.
* Check and update the drivers, Contact the respective manufactures.
* If it shows any number of packets lost (you are dropping packets)
it is an adaptor or signal strength issue (generally form the laptop side,
not being able to reach back) especially with older or less expensive
computers or wireless cards.
* Update the drivers
* Check antenna location, or distance from the signal
* Contact the respective manufactures.

Need to add a wirless code to laptop so it will geta wirless signal


For wireless connection you need a wireless adaptor in your laptop. Most of the laptop comes with wireless adaptor. If you have one then go to control panel--> network connection--> right click on wireless connection and view available networks in your area.

Please note : If you see a lock sign in front of a network it means that network is secured and you cant access it without password.

Please mail me if you need any other help or if something is not clear in my answer

I am unable to connect my A200 Satellite Pro to my wireless internet router and have been advised I need a code to unlock the wireless adaptor inside the machine


its unlikely that you need a code to unlock the wireless adaptor...

you are more than likely to need the 'WEP / WPA' code.

1 - Has your router got an encryption key setup ? if so, then this is what you need.
2 - Is your LAPTOP setup with the same workgroup name as your router ?

I've just bought a SMC7904WBRA-N Wireless router with a SMCWUSBS-N2 Wireless adaptor. It's probably obvious to you but... I want my pc to have a wirelss connection but can I install the adaptor first...


Best results would be to install everything from a HARD wire connection. Wireless, can drop bits of data depending on interference. I would definately use the ethernet to install everything and then try the wireless.

Connecting Wireless Modem to Laptop.


Firstly, you need to connect your router to a broadband activated phoneline. On the back of your router there is a socket which should say Phone Line and I believe it is at the top.
This will then radiate a radio broadband signal.

Next, you need to be able to link your computer(s) to your router. There are basically four ways of doing this.

1) ETHERNET - You can connect from the ethernet socket on your computer to the ethernet socket on your router. If you have an ethernet socket on your computer, this is the simplest connection but not always the most convenient. If you don't have an ethernet socket on your computer you will not be able to use the yellow cable.

2) USB - You can connect from the USB socket on the router to a USB socket on your computer. You will need to install USB drivers to do this, but it's not difficult.

3) WIRELESS - You can use a Wireless LAN Adaptor. This can either be a card, built in to your computer or an external USB linked wireless adaptor plugged into an available UBS socket on your computer. These are trickier to set up but you have the freedom to connect to the internet from anywhere within radio range of your router and without wires. Some computers have wireless network adaptors built in already, especially laptops. You can find out by doing the following:
Start\Programs\Accessories\Communications\Newtork Connections - check to see if any of the connections say 'wireless' If they do you're in luck.

4) HPNA - You could use a Home PNA Adaptor (HPNA). This allows you to connect to your router from a different room by plugging into a phone socket through through the HPNA. These can be a little unreliable and do suffere sometimes with interference.

As soon as you have connected to the router, you need to connect to the router's Gateway or control panel. This allows you to set a WEP security code for your network and stops your neighbour or anyone else from connecting to your network. If you use a wireless LAN you will have to set this up with your security code.

To prevent hash intereference to your phone, you need to use microfilters on each phone in your house. Usually a couple of filters will be included with your router, and you can easily purchase more, if you have phones all over your house.

Please find the guide for your router at the link below.
http://www.2wire.com/pages/pdfs/1000_series_Gateway_Install_Guide.pdf

You can also download software and drivers from http://www.2wire.com
Just go to the support page and look for your particular model

Hope this helps....
