For remote access I like to use a free solution from Logmein http://www.logmein.com works really well and is web based. You can also use software installed programs like VNC or tightVNC. The logmein solution is nice because again as said it is free, browser based access (need to install small software on computer attempting to be controlled), and hardly any configuring needs to be done.
a 6ya Technician can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.
Best thing about this new service is that you are never placed on hold and get to talk to real repair professionals here in the US. click here to Talk to a Technician (only for users in the US for now) and get all the help you need. Goodluck!

Unlike notebook computers, most desktops don't come with wireless networking built in. I can't find any mention on Dell's site that the Vostro 200 has wireless capability, so this computer doesn't have a wireless switch. To use your desktop computer on a wireless network, you'll need to install a wireless adapter. USB adapters are very easy to use since you just have to plug them in. They're not expensive and you can easily find them at retail stores and online.
One "partial" solution is to use your "home" Internet Service Provider's "Web Mail" service.
For example, try 'webmail.verizon.net' or 'webmail.roadrunner.com'.
You'll be able to access all the "new" E-mail that arrives while you are "away" from your "home" computer, but none of the E-mail that was stored on your "home" computer _before_ you went away.
The other solution is to use the "Remote Desktop Protocol" to "logically" connect your Mac's keyboard & mouse & screen, over the Internet, to your "home" computer, rather than using the "physically-connected" keyboard & mouse & screen.
You would have to:
1. leave your "home" computer powered-on all the time that you're away;
2. either connect your home-computer directly to your cable-modem or DSL-modem, or to use "port-forwarding" on any router that is "between" your home computer(s) and your modem, to direct all "Remote Desktop" connection-attempts to one specific computer on your home network.
3. be "security-conscious" -- exposing your computer to "accept" a Remote Desktop connection means that any computer-hacker will try to login with your ID & password to your computer, over the Internet.
4. have a "Remote Desktop Protocol" client piece of software on your Mac.
Westell makes a line of broadband home networking products that enable
residential customers and users in small businesses to access and share
broadband services. These inexpensive DSL router/modems offer
multi-users Internet LAN access for home or business applications. The
Westell router/modems allow you to have the benefits of the "always on"
high-speed broadband Internet connection without losing the ability to
receive voice calls over the same phone line.
one end of the Ethernet cable to the computer's Ethernet port. Connect
the other end to the Ethernet port on the back of the Westell router.
the barrel end of the router's power cord to the connector labeled "12
v" on the back of the router. Plug the other end of the power cord into
a wall outlet.
Connect one end of the DSL phone cable to the DSL line jack on the back of the router. Connect the other end to the wall jack.
Wait for the Ready and the Link LEDs to glow steady green. The router is now ready to use.
A network architecture is a set of standards for how computers are
physically connected and how signals are passed between hosts. Some typical
network architectures are described in the table below. Network ArchitectureDescription
Ethernet is a wired networking standard and is the most common networking
architecture used in LANs (both in business and home networks).
Dial-up networking is a common way to connect a computer (often your home
computer) to a remote network, such as the Internet or a business network. A
modem on each computer uses the phone lines to send and receive data.
DSL (Digital Subscriber Line)
DSL is a fast-growing alternative to dial-up networking to connect to the
Internet. DSL uses regular phone lines to send digital broadband signals.
ISDN (Integrated Services Digital Network)
ISDN is another alternative to traditional dial-up that can be used to
connect to the Internet or to directly communicate with another computer
connected to the ISDN network. ISDN is more common in Europe than in the U.S.
ISDN can use regular telephone wiring, but must be connected to a special ISDN
Wireless networking uses radio waves or infrared light (with the air as the
transmission medium) to send data between hosts. Wireless networks are common in
homes, businesses, airports, and hotels. Most wireless networks connect into
larger wired networks (such as LANs) which are in turn connected to the
Communication between hosts on a network generally takes one of three
Simplex--one-way communication from a sender to a receiver.
Half-duplex--two-way communication between two hosts. Communication only
travels in one direction at a time.
Duplex--two-way communication between hosts. Communication can travel in
both directions simultaneously.
Try to change the LAN IP address of your router to 192.168.2.1 by accessing the router's Setup page. You also need to set your Westell modem to "full-bridge mode". You need to ask assistance from your ISP to bridge the modem. After that, set-up the Linksys router to PPPoE then power cycle it.
This is only a problem with the firmware of your modem/router that you need to update it, because a network device like a modem and router that is working fine for severla years and suddenly stop working you just need to update the firmware of it and it should be working fine again, to update the firmware of the modem/router just need to call the manufacturer for that....
