Question about Computers & Internet

I am trying to conect a Linksys router to my wireless laptop in order for me to use it anywhere in the house. The last step is to conect the router to computer and it shows a tower. Since I have a lap top this does not work. Can you give me instructions as to how to connect to laptop.

Can you provide the Wireless Router model number located on the bottom of the device. It should be on a white label.

I would think that during the entire setup process your computer would be connected to your router, or that you were at least wirelessly connected to the router to configure.

Down in the notification area (area by the clock in the lower right corner of your computer) do you see an icon with a monitor and a couple curved lines? You should be able to right-click on it and select "View Wireless Networks". This should open a window where it will display the name of your wireless router (provided that it's powered on). You can highlight the name (we call it an SSID) and select CONNECT at the lower right corner of the window.

If you have security enabled you will need to input the security key you created and select ok.

That should connect you to the wireless network. Have you already configured the router to connect to the internet through your Internet Service providers equipment?

You have to configure your laptop the router. For that First down load the CD which came with the linksys router to your laptop. It carries all the instructions how to set up the internet connection. After downloading, Connect your laptop to router with Ethernet cable. Normally the linksys link should come up automatically. If it doesn't open the linksys link by clicking on the icon on the desktop.it will give you step by step instructions on how to configure your laptop to the wireless router. You should not have any problems as it is simple

Toshiba M35X-S311 laptop that wireless will work anywhere but not at the house, have a linksys router. Everybody else can come over and connect wirelessly to my router but when I turn my wireless button...


First You can not connected the net by Safemode.
Second, Use the wire, connect the Linksys to your computer, and if you are using another modem, set this first using same SSID and password.
Then remove the cable and set the wireless (Before That while cable is on see the wireless on linksys home page and access it. to get your key number or set it up.)
If you can not, try to see Cisco systems user guide.

Not conection!!!!


Try turning off your cable dsl modem and restarting it. Many isp's use dhcp to assign IP addresses, your router may not have been assigned one if the modem hasnt been restarted. Also try powering on in this order: Modem, router, pc.

CANNOT MAKE NOTEBOOK WIRELESS WITH THE ROUTRE


Hi my name is Cameron I'll tak care of you (:

1.Next time do not use caps lock.
2.Use better grammar next time. I use Spell checker in FF.

Alright, first your router does not make the laptop wireless, the wireless card inside your laptop makes its wireless. Secondly if you do not have a wireless card you need a "Wireless USB Adapter" google that.

Thirdly, tell me what your doing in steps. For example:
Step 1-I go to search for wireless networks
Step 2- I try to connect to my network.

Please try saying it in steps so we all can understand where your getting the error, and how to fix it.

Thanks,
Cam
