    Thanks for this. My next problem is when I try to access a web page I get a 401 error message saying authorisation is required please type in user name and password. Not sure which user name and password they mean. Is this to do with the wireless adaptor.

Hi
You'd need to buy an adapter such as this one. It's plug and play so no software would be required. There are cheaper ones available if you search for 'usb ethernet adaptor' but I chose that one as you can buy it directly from amazon. Obviously you will need a free usb port to make this work! I think tThe adaptor I suggested will only work with windows 2000, xp and vista.

Hope this helps.
Philip

    Does this happen on every webpage?

    The reason I'm asking these questions is because the 401 error, as you said, is to do with having to log in.

    If you go to start>>>run then type 'cmd' hit enter and in the box that comes up type 'ping www.yahoo.com' what messages come up? If pinging yahoo works succesfully then it tells me that your internet connection is working, there's just a problem with access.

Sony bravia lcd tv 40 inch


I have a Sony Bravia 46'' TV. I bought a Universal WiFi Adapter from Walmart a few years ago for about $50. You have to plug it into the Ethernet port on the Bravia using an Ethernet cable (the other end of the Ethernet cable goes into the Ethernet port on the adapter). The adapter needs also a power outlet. I do not remember if the adapter came with the Ethernet cable (likely) or I had to buy it separately.

Before buying the adapter make sure that:

1. Your Bravia has an Ethernet port (on my Bravia it is in the back of the TV), and
2. You have/use a wireless router for your home network.

Hope this helps.

How do i connect to router afriend gave me a belkin F7d1301 without directions


Turn on your computer, connect the enthernet cable to the ethernet port of your computer (Lan Card Port) and connect the other end of the ethernet cable to one of the router's ethernet port (not to the Internet Port), turn on the router and open your browser on your computer and type in http://192.168.2.1 and press enter or press Go. You'll need to login to the page. Please follow this LINK and follow the instructions.
Hope this will help you.
Let me know if you need further help.
Good Luck.

I have two computers in the house which are linked by an ethernet cables, my wireless router only has one ethernet hole,so I would like to know what I need to buy? such as an adapter or something, so I can...


If there is only 1 ethernet port on your router it sounds like this is the port for your modem to connect to your router and that your router is only built for wireless. If you want to connect computers via ethernet cable you will need either a new router with a 4 port switch or a new wireless router with a 4 port switch. (you can get more than 4 ports if you have more that 4 computers).

Adding a PCI ethernet card?


One port on the router is an "Ethernet" port -- look closely to see the 8 wires in the socket.

You'll need a similar 8-wire connector on your computer,
and an "Ethernet-cable" that has 8 strands of wire.

Adding-in the PCI Ethernet card will add an 8-wire connector,
so that the Ethernet-cable can be connected.

Be sure to buy a 'PCI' Ethernet adapter, not 'PCI-E', and not 'ISA'.
It may come with a CD-ROM containing software to be installed.

Don't pay more than $20. Or, find a "computer-geek" -- he/she probably will have one or more "spare" PCI Ethernet cards to give to you.

Can the modem's ethernet port connect to a video game console?


Most modems that have both usb & ethernet connectors are either/or, not both. I recommend using
the ethernet connection to your computer than the usb - the ethernet connection is faster & more
reliable. It also frees up your usb port for other use. If you want both your computer & game console on
the internet, then you need to buy a router which will allow you to share the modem.

No ethernet port on older Dell desktop


Yes, all you need is a PCI ethernet card. You can pick them up rather cheap. Here is one. You basically plug it into an available PCI port on the inside of your computer. If XP doesn't automatically install it, just insert the included CD with the drivers on it and XP will do the rest. And remember to please give this answer a good rating of fixya. Thanks.

Xbox 360 ethernet port -not working usb??


no the xbox doesnt work with the usb to ethernet adapter. i thought it would work also. and it turns out it does. this would be because you have to install the device drive for it to work, and you cant do this on your xbox. but radioshack sells ethernet ports for about $6 if you know how to switch them out.
