Question about Compaq Computers & Internet

1 Answer

When I plugged in my Wireless G Internet Reciever (for a router) into the USB Slot on my Creativity Action Center, I made the computer check if it realized it was there. It said it wasn't plugged in. I'm fairly sure the USB ports are broken, and I want to know how to fix it. If I cant fix it, where can I buy a new one in Winnipeg?

Motorola 1c743 wireless adapter reset


You modem needs to be powered on, linked to your cable or phone connection, and then linked to your router with an Ethernet cord. You also need a base computer (connected to the router with Ethernet as well) to adjust your router settings, like password and router name, and assure that you are communicating with the Internet.


Install your wireless adapter software to your laptop or computer that will be using the Internet wirelessly.You will be prompted at some point during the installation to plug in the adapter. (If prompted, restart your computer.)



Plug the adapter into your computer or laptop. Some adapters come as USB-compatible (Universal Serial Bus) plug-and-play devices, and others are PCMIA (Personal Computer Memory Card International Association) cards that go into a special wide slot in laptops.

Go to your computer control panel and click on Network Connections when the software download is complete (if the control panel does not load automatically). Your new adapter should be now be listed. Select the icon and look at the description to make sure that it is connected. If not, right-click the adapter icon and click Enable.


Double-click the adapter to search for a wireless connection. Refresh the list of connections available until you find the name of your router. Enter any passwords that you set up for your wireless router and then connect to the Internet.

Using d-link glb-802 c router , now purchased another system , from router how should i connect to my another system


if the router is wireless and the new system is wireless ready then the router should pick up the signal fine and run the internet smoothly however some routers come with a security key examples WEP, WPA, WPA 2 these are the most common forms of security if this is the case you will have to enter the key on the router or in the User Manual before you have internet access... if the router is not wireless then you simply buy a new ethernet cable which now are fairly cheap if you know where to go depending on size and plug it in to the router and the appropriate slot on the computer system and this should connect you to the internet... if you system is not wireless but your router is you can now buy wireless cards that fit into the computer which recieves the signal from the router or a wireless adapter which does the same but plugs in via USB. any other information please feel free to talk to me but these options should solve your issue

How Do I Hook up lines


First find your internet modem cable from your high speed internet box. Unplug it from your previous router or computer. This cable should run from your internet box to your router plugging it into the slot labeled internet. Then plug in the power cord to the router and let it power up.
Next you need to go to start then control panel and select the network and sharing center. Select Change adapter settings and then right click on the wireless network connection and then left click on enable. It should find several networks and your should be LinkSys. Select this and then connect.
You should now be able to access the internet after you restart your computer.

ZyXEL P-330W wireless router


No it will not work you cannot connect a router to another router wirelessly and it will most likely not be detecting each other, routers are built to transmit internet signals from modems if you have a router and a computer but you do not have your own internet connection that will not work conencting to another router you will need USB Wifi Card transmitter/reciever to be able to connect to your friends wireless internet.

but if your friend only has a modem you can lend him your router and get a USB wifi transmitter/reciever to be able to connect to your router that is conencted to your friends modem this will work but will not work if you and you friend will both have a router creating a network.

TEW432-BRP Trendnet wireless broadband router wont connect


Sounds like you need to configure the PC's USB wireless adaptor. The settings must be the same as the router. If you use a WEP password on the other connections then you need to have the same password on the USB wireless adaptor. Good Luck.

Connecting a router so I can use a second desktop pc


In addition to a wireless router you will need a wireless reciever for each PC you wish to have working simultaneously (assuming the PC does not already have a wireless networking capability) .

The wireless receiver is usually a USB or laptop PC slot device which you plug in to the PC and after installation of the necessary software (usually supplied with the device) you can surf wirelessly. The USB type wireless devices are about GB£20 to buy .
