I assume you only have a modem at the moment....

You need a router with a wifi conection.. Belkin, Linksys, D-Link all make good products.

You then connect the broadband modem to the router.

connect the PC to router via wifi or cable,

connect laptop via wifi.

If you are using a USB connection from modem to PC you will have to change to ethernet connection between the modem and router and router to PC (if using a cable)

Happy to assist more so post back any questions you have.

How do I access internet..desktop trough laptop


You need to share them into a homegroup together.
Or are you using a crossover cable? U cant just use notmal cat5 cables to connect a computer to a computer.
Although, why on earth are you trying to access the internet through another computer?
The whole idea sounds disasterous.
Maybe get a wifi card for desktop if its a distance issue.

Dont know how to connect to internet


If you want to connect to internet there are different ways on how to do it.
  1. The first one is to have a wireless broadband modem that you will use to gain signal and access the internet.
  2. The second one is to find a Free Wifi Zone where you can access the internet using you Laptop wifi. (This is what i suggest you must do, so that you dont have to spend money to access the internet) but some wifi zone are password protected so be sure to find a open shared wifi.
  3. The third one to apply for dsl /lan connected internet that uses ethernet wires that will be connected from the modem to your wifi in able to gain access to internet.
Hope i Help..

Just bought a D-Link wireless router (DIR-655). I have a static IP, so config using static IP info. Wireless works and 1 desktop works. However, main desktop can't get internet. I can ping router and...


I have the same D-Link Wireless Router and I can't say that I have run into this before.
Mine seemed to work from day one without any problems. I also purchased the D-Link adapter cards for a laptop and for my desktop that are located in other rooms.

Maybe, try a different version of IE to get it to access. I don't use Firefox, that much, so I didn't notice that firefox worked better or worse on my WiFi network.

Maybe try to shut off the broadband modem and the wifi router and the computer and then reboot all three to make sure that that's not the problem.

Also try to reset the router.

Good luck on figuring this one out.

Download the latest drivers for your computer:

there are two files there which should match your copmuter:
the network driver, and wireless.
install them on the PC and then restart. see what happens next- if you still cannot access the internet, open control panel and network connections and see what happens there. Please update me when you have more information

Ive got verizon wireless broadband for my lap top and cant seem to be able to get online with ps3


Can you provide more information?  The Verizon Wireless broadband access is for your laptop only.  In order for the PS3 to take advantage of it, you'll have to setup Internet Connection Sharing on your laptop. That way your PS3 can connect to your laptop via your laptop's wireless connection (in Ad Hoc mode since you don't have a wifi network) and access the internet via the VzW Broadband Access.
