Laptop Cannot Connect To Internet

I have a Cable ISP for my home desktop, and everything on there is fine, but my laptop has a wireless internet setup. Everytime i try to add a cable set-up, it says the system should already accept and/or run with a cable connection, and then cancels out of the internet wizard. is there any way to fix this so that I can go online with cable on my laptop? (without my Xp disc being needed, because it's "somewhere", just not sure where.)

You shouldn't have to run the setup wizard. You should be able to plug it in and click on internet explorer and it will connect. This is built into the operating system. If it doesn't do this, then you will need the disc to run a system repair.

No internet access netgear router


It may be the device you are trying to connect. shut down everything, unplug , remove batteries, plug in the ISP model, allow the self test, plug in the wireless device, allow it to self test, plug in, reboot the device, laptop, desktop, ipad, phone, whatever. You say you can connect using a Ethernet Cable? Just no connection wirelessly?

Wireless antenna or wireless router


Did your ISP Boingo supply you with a DSL or cable modem with a built-in wireless router? If only a DSL or cable modem is supplied and you wish to connect to the Internet by wireless then you need to connect a wireless router to this DSL or cable modem.

You can connect to the Internet using a LAN cable from your laptop to the DSL or cable modem.
If your laptop as a built-in wireless card you can to the Internet via the wireless router.
If you laptop does not have a built-in wireless card then you can install a PCMCIA wireless card into the card slot of your laptop to the Internet via a wireless connection.

Presario 900 laptop what internet dongle do i need to connect to internet.


that completely depends on what kind of internet service you have.
The laptop has a Ethernet connector so, if you have a internet connection in your home you should be able to connect it with a wire to the router or the modem and it should work.

Try manually add the network. If the problems continue, I would turn the laptop in for repair/replacement (if it under warranty).

Server not found} NetGear WGR614 Wireless Router doesn't connect me to the internet.


Dear Loud Nouises,

Your router must be connected properly to the cable modem. This must be to the wan port on the router.

Next, the router must be set-up accordingly to recognize the modem's internet connections. Please ask for the IP address.. and other relevant informations from your internet provider.

Set -up your computer using the internet connections wizard on each of your respective computer.

This should work fine if all connections were correctly configured.
