The internet wont come up on the xbox, it keeps telling me that my wireless pc is unavailable.


what i do is i hook up my ethernet cord from my laptop to my xbox. i then bridge the connections..

(adapter settings -> ctrl + click on both local area network and wireless area network and then right click on one, click "Bridge Connection")

and that's how i get xbox live, using my laptop as the wireless adapter.

I have a ethernet cable connected to my xbox and laptop why wont it connect


Exactly what are you trying to do?

If your trying to run Xbox with internet from your laptop its not possible unless your laptop has a internet card. (Doesn't use a router) You need to connect your Xbox to a "Router" not a laptop. You can also waste some money and buy a wireless adapter for the xbox... which is rather dull.

My laptop works using my Belkin router, but my desktop will not connect to the internet


hello

your notebook has WiFi, which is radio frequency internet, it transmits and receives radio signals (frequencies) . Your desktop, most likely, does not support WiFi on its own , so you need to use RG45 cable , ethernet cable to be connected from your desktop to the router.

So in other words thsi is what happens with your notebook and the router.
  1. your notebook has built in wireless adapter which translates data into a radio signal and transmits it using an antenna.
  2. A wireless router receives the signal and decodes it. The router sends the information to the Internet using a physical, wired Ethernet connection, to your modem (supplied by your Internet Service Provider)
The process also works in reverse, with the router receiving information from the Internet, translating it into a radio signal and sending it to the computer's wireless adapter.

The radios used for WiFi communication are very similar to the radios used for walkie-talkies, cell phones and other devices.


you need to connect your desktop to the router via RG45 ethernet cable.

How can i setup a wireless connection on my laptop


Hi,

Depending on the model etc of your laptop, some have built in wireless adapters others don't so you need to buy a wireless adapter card so that you are able to connect to the internet.

Also you will need a network which has wireless built in if at home for you to connect to the internet, through the wireless adapter on your laptop.

Hope this helps, let me know if you need more information.

Thanks

Wont hook to the enternet


The Ethernet adapter may be conflicting or competing with the wireless adapter for the Internet connection. Try turning off the wireless adapter. You can either disable it in device manager, or some HP laptops have a button next to the screen that will turn it off. If you don't get an Internet connection, restart the laptop and try again.

If that doesn't help, I would suspect the Ethernet adapter driver is faulty. Check it under device manager. If it has a yellow exclamation point, question mark, or is not listed, the driver needs to be installed or reinstalled. If it simply has a red X on it, enable the adapter.

If the Ethernet adapter is fine, try a different Ethernet cable. If THAT doesn't help, it's probably software related.

A firewall may be keeping you from browsing. Some firewalls may see the Ethernet connection as an entirely different connection than the wireless one. Try disabling all firewalls.

Thanks

no you are probably unaware that you have connected to a neighbours connection who stupidly has not security encrypted the router.

It is illegal to use somebody elses connection without their permission, so i would suggest turning off the wireless adapter (slider button at front of notebook) until you get your own wireless connection.

Have a new Satellite P305-S8812 notebook and cannot connect to the internet wirelessly. N Rounter just installed. Computer has B/G wireless technology. Do I need an adapter for the notebook to connect?


nope there is no need for any adapters

but all you need is to turn on the wireless adapter on your laptop and that would be either a button on the sides to turn on and off the wireless adapter or its a key (function key) on your keyboard (its always with an antenna shape and blue colored) if u have that key then click and hold the (Fn blue colored key) and the (antenna blue colored key) and release both that should turn on the wireless adapter.

and notice that with the new routers there is a security key that is already set up in the router (it should be in the back of the router and mostly 10 digits).

that should be all my friend

cheers

Try resetting your IP address:
The laptop may be trying to use the IP address from the old router.

1) Click Start (assuming Windows 2000, XP, or Vista)
2) Click Run
3) Type in CMD
This will take you to a black command box
4) Type in: ipconfig/release
The chart should show your IP address as 0.0.0.0
Once this has happened, proceed to step 5
5) Type in: ipconfig/renew
You should now see a new IP address listed.

Also note that you need to set up your network key (assuming that you are using one) on both the router and laptop.
Make sure that your router is set up to perform as DHCP server.
