How to share my Huawei mobile broadband connection over my network

I bought an IMac and an iPhone and a Huawei mobile broadband modem. I shared the Huawei connection sucessfully over Airport and ethernet to my Iphone and my Toshiba laptop on Vista. Then I bought a Time Capsule and used ethernet cable to connect to iMac.

Now I cannot get my iPhone or laptop to share my iMacs's internet connection. It connects to Airport OK but Safari wont connect to internet. Toshiba reports no internet connection on ethernet or Airport.

Tried :-
1. unplugging ethernet cable from back of IMac, still no good.
2. turning power off to Time Capsule, still no good.
3. setting iPhone to join Time Capsule Airport Network, no good.
4. setting iPhone to connect to IMac Airport Network, no good.

Time Capsule Airport is set to issue DHCP and anything ethernet I plug in happily received an IP address eg my iPhone, my Toshiba laptop, my Pioneer Blue Ray. Huawei is set to highest priority in network preferences. Got latest software versions for iMac and Time Capsule, iPhone 2 software in iPhone.

How has Time Capsule disabled my internet sharing from Huawei-on-iMac to iPhone, even when it is unplugged and physically powered down ?

First of all try clearing cookies,browser history and cache,avoid running electronic devices at once,upgrade your modem or router to a newer model and have a periodic check in your modem ventilation, or do you use P2P (Peer to Peer) file sharing programs? If so then try turning the file sharing program off, as file sharing programs use up alot of bandwidth some broadband providers limit the speed you can use the internet if you are using file sharing programs.

If you turn off the file sharing program your broadband speed goes back to normal .

I faced the same problem ,after doing this i checked my speed from http://www.scanmyspeed.com apparently my internet speed is faster than before.
If these doesn't apply ,there is a chance you may have a virus on your computer. A computer virus is likely to not just slow your broadband and Internet down but your computer too. ScanmySpeed Check my Internet Speed

How to get my computer to download files quicker


It depends on where the slow-down is occuring. 1) Use a wired connection instead of a wireless connection. 2) Try directly connecting your computer to your modem (cable or DSL) instead of sharing the network with other computers through a router if a wired network. 3) Upgrade to gigabit networking if you have 10/100 (chose one with support for large chunks of data).

Use a service that tests the download speed (www.dslreports.com/stest ) to find your connection bottleneck. If you have cable broadband, you may need to find a download time when other users aren't very active on your loop.

I hope this helps.

How can i connect my desktop computer to the internet plz i need someone to help


Currently, the most common way to connect a desktop system to the internet, is by using the network jack to connect to a broadband cable modem or DSL modem. To do either you must have the service from either you cable provider or phone company (For DSL) and have the modem device for the service. Fees run $20 to $50 a month depending on speed you subscribe.
You connect the device to the system using a CAT5 network cable to a RJ45 (8 wire telephone type jack). Some Cable/DSL modems also have USB connection capability for the few systems these days that do not have a built in RJ45 connector To use them, you install the associated software, then connect the USB cable when prompted.
If you don't have Cable/DSL then dial up telephone modem is the next option, this requires a telephone modem that has an RJ11c telephone cord jack connection, most current computers only have a telephone modem as an option, but they can still be bought for around $20 and you will require a dial up internet service (Few remain, one is Netzero in the USA)

My new pc Dell Inspiron desktop has no modem built in for dial-up internet connection. Im currently subscribing to a dial-up service provider on another pc, how do I connect to the same dial-up service...


You have to configure Internet Connections Sharing on the PC which has a dial-up service.
1. Click Start - Settings - Control Panel - Network Connections, right click on dial-up.
2. Clik on Properties, click on Advanced tab.
3. Under Internet Connection Sharing, select the Allow other network users to connect through this computer's Internet connection check box

After that you must connect the other pc to this one via network cable.
If you don'y have network adapters you have to buy them.

and you access you're share folder via network neighborhood or my network places. you may also may want to map the share folder for you to easily access stuff in it and put stuff back aswell.

you also need some physical set up
your network should be something like this

I cannot connect wirelessy to internet on my compaq pressario v6000. The orange wireless light is on and the internet connectivity icons in the task bar have a red cross on them. I have tried all options...


Part 1: Before You Start loadTOCNode(2, 'summary'); You need the following: • A broadband connection to the Internet and the appropriate hardware. For example, cable-based Internet access that uses a cable modem that is provided by your ISP. • The Microsoft Broadband Networking Setup CD-ROM. • The Microsoft MN-500 Wireless Base Station. • The Ethernet cable that came with your base station. • The AC power supply. • The blank floppy disk.Check the following: • On computers that are running Microsoft Windows 2000 or Microsoft Windows XP, you must be a member of the Administrators group to set up a network. If you cannot run Setup, click Log Off on the Start menu, press CTRL+ALT+DELETE, and then log on with as an administrator. • Turn off any firewall or Internet connection sharing software on your computers. Your base station replaces these functions. The Setup Wizard cannot continue if they are enabled. • Do you have a Point-to-Point Protocol over Ethernet (PPPoE) Internet connection or a static Internet Protocol (IP) address? The Setup Wizard prompts you to type your user name, password, and service name for a PPPoE connection. For a static IP address, you must have the IP, subnet, and ISP gateway addresses. If you have one of these types of connections, gather this information from your ISP.
Part 2: Install the Software and Connect the Hardware loadTOCNode(2, 'summary'); 1. Insert the wireless base station Setup CD-ROM into the CD-ROM drive. If the Setup Wizard does not start automatically, click Start, click My Computer, double-click the CD-ROM icon, and then double-click Setup or Setup.exe. 2. Follow the on-screen instructions to install the software. 3. In the second part of the installation, select the option to set up the wireless base station, and then continue through the rest of the Setup Wizard. 4. When the Setup Wizard instructs you to connect your wireless base station, position the wireless base station close to your modem and computer, and near the center of your intended network area. If you want to set up the wireless base station vertically, attach the included stand. 5. On the back of your computer, unplug the Ethernet cable that connects your computer to your broadband modem. Leave the other end of the cable plugged in to the modem. 6. Plug the cable in to the "To Modem" port on the back of the base station. The base station is now connected to your modem. 7. Plug one end of the blue Ethernet cable that came with your base station in to the Ethernet port that is labeled 1 on the back of the base station. Plug the other end into the Ethernet port on the back of your computer. This is the same port from which you just disconnected the modem cable.

Important The modem must use its original Ethernet cable or one of the same type to connect to the base station. 8. Plug one end of the power supply that came with your base station into the power jack on the back of the base station. Plug the other end into an electrical outlet. The power indicator light on the front of the base station should turn on. 9. Return to the Setup Wizard, click Next, and then go to Part 3 of this article.
Part 3: Configure the Base Station and Network Settings loadTOCNode(2, 'summary'); Continue to follow the instructions on the screen to configure your wireless network settings: 1. Setup prompts you to enable wireless security (WEP). Microsoft recommends that you enable WEP. 2. Setup prompts you to save your network settings to a floppy disk for use in later installations. A blank floppy disk is provided for this purpose. If you do not save to a disk, you receive a list of network settings to print or write down. 3. Click Finish to exit Setup, and then remove the Setup CD-ROM from the CD-ROM drive and the floppy disk from the floppy disk drive. You can use the same CD-ROM and floppy disk to set up additional computers on your network.
Part 4: Test Your Network loadTOCNode(2, 'summary'); 1. View the status of your network in the Broadband Network Utility (BNU). Make sure that you can see your base station and the computer that is connected to it in the BNU status screen: a. Click Start, point to All Programs, and then double-click Microsoft Broadband Network Utility. b. View the information on the Network Status screen. 2. If your broadband Internet connection is being shared through your wireless network, start your Web browser program, and then try to visit a Web site. If your network is working properly, you have access to the Internet from the computer you just set up.

L cannot run 2 compters at tihe or can L run on either one or the other.from the same modem?


  1. If using a dial up modem you would need to network the computers together with ethernet cards and a cross-over cat5e cable and set up shared internet connection. One would be a server and one a client server would have to be on all the time for client to access the net.
  2. If using broadband (DSL or Cable) you will need a router. Wired or Wireless. Connect modem to router, router to computers, re-boot the computers, then reboot the modem and router so the modem can assign IP addresses.
