That phone line will only be for actual phone lines.. as it will be a modem.

If the lappy has an ethernet port (slightly larger than a phone port, but looks the same) you could use that with an ethernet cable to a DSL modem. (the modem has the phone wire plugged into it)

Most laptops have an ethernet port, but yours might be a bit too old perhaps? If that's the case, you can buy either a USB to ethernet adapter (but you might not have that either) or a PCMCIA ethernet card. The latter will definitely work for you, and can be bought second hand VERY cheaply... if not for nothing.

I really hope it has something a bit newer than '95 though... otherwise just getting the internet to work could be a problem. Good luck!

Can't connect to the internet using Vista OS on Compaq laptop. Using a WNDR3400-100NAS Netgear router. It finds the router and it labels it as an unidentified network and it will not complete the...


I am assuming you HAVE connected before.

Here is how to fix that corrupted DNS cache in vista.

1. Click the Microsoft Vista Start logo in the bottom left corner of the screen
2. Click All Programs
3. Click Accessories
4. RIGHT-click on Command Prompt
5. Select Run As Administrator
6. In the command window type the following and then hit enter: ipconfig /flushdns
7. You will see the following confirmation:

Windows IP Configuration
Successfully flushed the DNS Resolver Cache.

After that in the same command window type

ipconfig /release

ipconfig /renew



That should clear up the issue. Odds are you were sharing an IP address with someone else on the network.

Wireless driver uninstalls itself after restarts


if it's a usb-dongle, the driver's will be reinstalled every time you reconnect the device. the drivers are on your computer, but have to reconnect with the network adapter when it's reconnected. if the problem is the same after a reboot without disconnecting the network adapter, then there is either a problem with the usb-device, or a driver management problem in windows.
if the usb-device works without problem on another computer, the you need to reinstall windows.

Buffalo KG54 lan utility


There should have been drivers with it when you bought it. If not, here's a link: http://www.opendrivers.com/driver/234540/buffalo-wli-u2-kg54-ai-wireless-usb2.0-adapter-driver-1.01.02.0002-windows-98se-me-2000-xp-free-download.html If you install these drivers, your computer should detect the device. You will, though, still need a modem to be able to connect to the internet. I hope this helps, and if not, post back here, Yannick.

Making my desktop pc wireless


There is no built-in wireless LAN support in Windows Me, Windows 98, or Windows NT 4.0. Wireless network adapter manufacturers must supply all wireless and authentication functionality for these versions of Windows.
To configure a wireless client computer running Windows Me, Windows 98, or Windows NT 4.0, you must use the wireless configuration tool provided by your wireless network adapter manufacturer. Please see the instructions for the wireless configuration tool to configure 802.11 and 802.1X authentication settings.

ISATAP adaptor


you have ipv6 enabled, this is to help the worldwide convergence to ipv6 form ipv4 . were running out of addresses if not already have ran out.
so from what i can tell it works with the tunneling adapter. altho it is still doing stuff on your computer, it's needed to make the internet work right now, if anyone of you have a "microsoft wi-fi miniport adapter" all of a sudden and you also don't like that you can't get rid of it unless you go to the web and download the old driver.
neither the miniport or the isatap adapter are actually "needed" you can get by without isatap if you either disable or uninstall ipv6. virtual wifi isn't needed, but it's uber cool cause it's for your wireless card and if you connect wireless to the internet, it will let you wirelessly share out that connection wirelessly , (like your a wireless router)

i think i should not that "eventually" you will need to install ipv6 to browse the internet.
more importantly it actually isn't designed to be a "TAP" but it certainly could be the target of hackers in the future including the mini-port (only because they are both new)

What operating system are you using, Win XP?
Go to the control panel - look at Network Connection, click on properties on your USB adapter, click on Internet Protocol (TCP/IP), then Properties, make sure Obtain an IP address automatically is selected.
Also make sure your USB adapter settings (SSID, WEP/WAP etc) matches your Access Point settings.
