There are two ways of getting on line outside your home. 1- you can use a wireless card, built in if yopu're machine has the capability or a universal card. The universal cards are sold at Walmart or Bestbuy and come in bus port or usb port styles. If you use a built in or universal card, you will need to find a location that has free wifi, ie... Macdonald's, Wendy's, Burger King, shopping malls, coffee shops, hotel/motel, etc... all of these offer free wifi. The upside is that it's free, the downside is you have to find a place with free wifi. 2- you can go through your cellular provider, ie... AT&T, Cingular, Sprint, US Cellular, whoever you have and get an airtime wireless card. The cards are around $150, then you will have a monthly charge of around $60. This will allow you to connect anywhere, anytime, as long as you have a signal.

I have no problems with my wireless internet connection in my home. But I cannot get a connection outside it even from the semi-detached house next door. I'm connecting via a sky modem. There was no manuel...


a computer with a wireless internet connection still needs to be near the modem or router. If you move too far from the signal you will lose your connection. If you live in an area where there are few or no other internet users or there are no public connections then your connection is the only one that will typically work,

Can't connect to internet


We can try to isolate whether it's a problem with IE by having you download and install Mozilla Firefox and seeing if it allows you to browse the web.

You may want to check your connection settings in Internet Explorer - Tools + Internet Options + Connections. If you had any dialup settings or anything in there previously you should disable them. The other thing you can try is running the network setup wizard and telling the machine that you connect directly thru a network hub.

Turn of wireless


If you use your cable internet service via an ethernet cable, basically plugged into it directly, then there is no way some one can access your internet. If you have a wireless router in your house, someone can use your router for a connection if they are within range. Unless you router is set up with a network key (password) in order to connect. A network key is set by you and only you have it, so if you set one write it down, if you lose it you will need another router in order to connect other machines in the future. Also, a network key only needs to be entered into a computer once, it's not a password that is entered every time you log on, the network configuration in the computer remembers it. Now keep in mind that "hackers" aren't interested in individuals (unless you're a major corporate ceo or somthing), and even if somebody does access the internet through your service that they cannot access or see anything on your computer that you don't allow them to see or access, that security is built in. Don't let Dateline scare you about "hackers", I saw that episode and they made a mountain out of a mole hill, bad. If you have any other questions or concerns, feel free to ask.

Internet connection not working


I have ATT DSL too.

Mine came with a Seimens SpeedStream 4100 ethernet ADSL modem. Did yours?
If not what is the manufacturer and model of the unit ATT sent?

Is it hooked up and working? If so continue.

IF you have a Seimens SpeedStream 4100 --
  • It has 3 connection on the back
  • one for power
  • one for a phone line (gray in my case)
  • with a separate gray cable
  • this is connected to the non phone side of a splitter
  • one for an ethernet (yellow in my case)
  • with a separete yellow cable
  • this may be loose to connect to your computer OR
  • connected to another device
  • IF connected to another device what is the manufacturers name and model for that device.
If ATT supplied a device other than a Seimens SpeedStream 4100
  • Is there anything other than a power adapter and a phone line attached to that unit now?
  • What is the manufacturers name and model for that device.
In terms of your ATT DSL service
  • How many devices do you intend to connect? Computers, game consoles, etc
  • How many connected by wire, if you know?
  • How many connected by wireless, if you know?
To you know if your DV4000 computer
  • has an ethernet connector?
  • has a wireless network adapter built-in?
  • IF not can can you look on the label on the bottom of your computer and tell me the full model number is. Please use this Model Link to help figure that out.
Do you have any devices such as a router, wireless router, wireless access point either already connected or to connect to your ATT DSL service?
Please identify the manufacturers name and model number for each device and whether or not it is connected and working.

With all the above I will know where to begin in the process of attaching your new computer to your ATT DSL service. Please add a comment to this issue with the necessary information -- I know it will be long. However you are the hands and eyes of this team and my questions are to get you to tell me things I would know if I was present and installing these devices.
