I have Time Warner Service set up @ home for my Home PC. I bought a Netgear N300 Wireless Router for my laptop. Do I have to plg into the Time Warner Modem to set up my Laptop? ANd what do I do?


The modem wants to plug into the wan or internet port on the router, this port is usually different in color and location from other wired ports.

You will want to program the router settings, either use the wizard, or change: Wireless security wit WEP at least, and give a password, like you home or cell phone number (which you can remember when a guest comes and needs access), change system ID to something you would remember, change router access password AND LOG IT,
and check that the router broadcasts it's presence (usually set to yes), and finally change the channel to 11 and get less landline wirelss phone interference.

To do this programming, by the way, you usually need to plug into the modem with a network cable and direct your browser to it, something similar to 192.168.1.1 in the address bar, but get the manual and follow their directions.

I have a compaq computer model 5bw220 5000 series and my moden needs to be reprogram and i dont have the cd. i dont know what modem it has. can you please help.


If the modem is internal, look in your hardware manager to locate the brand and type of modem, if its external, check the id plate on the rear of bottom of the case, then go to the manufacturers website, look under support for the software. You can also access the modem through your web browser using its own IP address. Type the address into the address bar of your browser. When the modem asks for a password, use admin in the user name and admin in the password, or use password for the password, then locate the details you wish to change, change them and then click on save and reboot.. The IP address of the modem can be access using the IPCONFIG /ALL command or check the label on the modem or, go to the manufacturers website and check the manual..

I took out the internal modem on my computer and now no sound


yeah... i have experiance it also while reparing a laptop.. since the laptop has a built-in in modem and when you try to install the software for your modem it looks for a high codec audio for the modem and the soundcard to work. your have to install or re-install the software of your modem or connect to the internet and download its updated version.

S/N:07-281-550120-01 I lost the software for my dial up modem and need to know where i can get it again? i dont even know the name of the manufacturer.


Well sorry my crystal ball is not able to deduce any brands or manufacture from a series of numbers. The only thing i can say is that it was manufactured in 2007. DSial upo modems can be bought for about $30 now so perhaps get a newer one with software. it;s likely that you dont eb=]ven need the software anyway as most modems will work in windows if you select Standard or Vanilla modem

I have a compaq presario c793vu notebook.i would like to set it up like my computer so i can take my laptop with me when i'm out but still be able to use my desktop also. i have'nt got broadband does'nt...


if you mean you want to set it up for wireless internet, then you need to check first if the wireless card is enabled/present.

Go to start. Right click my computer. Click properties>hardware>device manager.
If you see a yellow question mark, red x or an exclamation mark on any of the items in the list, tell me. Ideally, you should see 'network adapters'. Click the plus beside it. See if you see anything that says wireless under it. If there's a red x beside the wireless entry, right click it and click enable.

If you dont see any entry with yellow question mark, red x or an exclamation mark and dont see a wireless entry under network adapters, it means you dont have a wireless card installed. Or you may have one but it's not detected by your computer.

Tell me the result so we can check what to do next.
