    Are you using a router or is your computer connected directly to the modem given by comcast?



    If you're using a router and you're unable to connect to the Internet, it could be that the router needs to be reconfigured or just it needs to be power cycled (power off for few seconds then power on).



    If your computer is just directly connected to the modem, you may also try power cycling the modem or you may contact your Internet Provider to establish your connection through the modem.



    To help you further:

    - Are you using a router? if so, what's the brand and model number?

    - Is there any computer that can connect to the Internet?

If you get the page that says"this page cannot be shown blah blah blah.....then it should also say at the bottom "solve problem".Have you gotten such a page and clicked on that? Sometimes the computer will solve the problem for you there.

Secondly, you could go to start>contol panel>network connections and click on the icon. You should get a page now that shows your comcast connection.If the icon is there, please right click on it and you will get a small menu. One option is Enable or Disable. It should say Enable. If it says Disable, you need to click on it so that it will change to "Enable", which turns on your connnection. If it does not then there should be a link on that page that says"troubleshoot the network" or something similar. If there is no icon at all there you are not set up to connect to the internet which means you need to "set up a new connection" which should also be offered on that page.

Thirdly, Pull down the "file" menu in the upper left of your screen and make sure that"work offline" is NOT checked.

Dell also has a diagnostics program which comes with your computer. You will find it in the start menu, most likely. If none of the above has solved your problem, try the diagnostics from dell.

Last but not least just make absolutely certain that all of your cables are connected as they should be.


I have offered several possibilities. Please just try them one at a time. If you are unable to connect, please let me know.

Hi,

To enable Internet Connection Sharing on a network connection

You must be logged on to your computer with an owner account in order to complete this procedure.
Open Network Connections. (Click Start, click Control Panel, and then double–click Network Connections.)

Click the dial–up, local area network, PPPoE, or VPN connection you want to share, and then, under Network Tasks, click Change settings of this connection.

On the Advanced tab, select the Allow other network users to connect through this computer's Internet connection check box.
If you want this connection to dial automatically when another computer on your home or small office network attempts to access external resources, select the Establish a dial–up connection whenever a computer on my network attempts to access the Internet check box.

If you want other network users to enable or disable the shared Internet connection, select the Allow other network users to control or disable the shared Internet connection check box.

Under Internet Connection Sharing, in Home networking connection, select any adapter that connects the computer sharing its Internet connection to the other computers on your network. The Home networking connection is only present when two or more network adapters are installed on the computer.

I have a DSL502T ADSL Router,and have bought a new emachines computer. I can not connect to the internet. The computer has a wireless connection loaded but I want to connect by dailup Please could you help...


You are a bit confused with the various components required for Internet connections.
If you have a dial-up connection with an Internet Service Provider, all you do is connect your computer's modem port to the phone line and dial the phone number of your Internet Service provider.
If you are connected to the Internet Servise Provider by ADSL and have a combined ADSL router and modem then you connect the phone line to this router/modem. If the ADSL modem is separate component then the phone line is connected to the ADSL modem and this modem is connected to the router with a LAN cable and the computer is connected to the router with another LAN cable. If the route is wireless and the computer has a wireless card then you don't need a LAN cable between the router and the computer.
If you are connected to the Internet by ADSL, to secure your Internet connection and configure your computer so it can connect to the Internet, please follow my instruction - click on this link :-

I AM UNABLE TO ACCESS INTERNET THRU MY HYBRID APPLE MAC DESK TOP-


Go into network set up a shared Internet connection using ICS (Internet Connection Sharing) You can use Internet Connection Sharing (ICS) to share an Internet connection among two or more computers on a network. First, you need one computer, called the host computer, that is connected to the Internet and that has a separate connection to the other computers on your network. You enable ICS on the Internet connection. The other computers on your network then connect to the host computer, and from there to the Internet through the host computer's shared Internet connection.
If your computer is connected to a network, network policy settings might prevent you from completing these steps.
On the host computer (the computer whose Internet connection you plan to share):
  1. ?id=microsoft.windows.resources.shellexecutetopiciconClick to open Network Connections.
  2. Right-click the connection that you want to share, and then click Properties.getcontent.aspx?assetid=18abb370-ac1e-4b6b-b663-e028a75bf05b&documentset=en-us&renderkey=signed1 If you are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.
  3. Click the Sharing tab, and then select the Allow other network users to connect through this computer’s Internet connection check box.
