You can use any wireless modem stick if your wireless modem can connect to the stick it has to be for your particular modem. Make sure that the stick is compatible with the Operating System you are currently using for Win XP or otherwise, the drivers are loaded and make sure that the firewall settings are on for your devices to access inbound and outbound conformities. This should be a simple plug and play situation.
Turn off the computer and your modem place the stick in the port you wish to use. Then place the driver disc in the DVD or CD ROM whichever you have to install the driver with most likely it will be in the stick the software for it and it should auto-run. Then turn on everything, wait for a bit for the works to settle in. The search the Internet using IE8 if it does not find the internet it will open a window asking you if you want IE to diagnose connection problems. It should repair it. If this will not work then you will want to go to 198.162.0.1 and type in for the username without the quotes, "admin" and the password, "admin"
This will be the default page for your wireless connection you should see all the Bigpond configurations. Click on reset the modem your IP should be Dynamic automatically your ISP will install the configurations needed. The reset button is located on the modem use a toothpick push the little button in for about 15 seconds this should get you up and going. I hope that this gave you some sort of an idea on what is going on. Thanks for using FixYa! Do not forget to post a vote if I assisted you in any way, Thanks John

Assuming your current laptop has Windows, then it should work with a new laptop running Windows. If you're getting a Mac, it might work if you simply plug it in, or you might have to install certain drivers to make it work.

Theencryption key secures your data from unauthorized access. The router's password is a Passphrase or the WEP or WPA orWPA2 encryption key. The Passphrase generates the WEP or WPA or WPA2 encryptionkey and this is in the router's wireless settings. To connect to your wireless router, configure the router'swireless settings ie SSID, plus the WPAor WPA2 encryption key and then configure wireless cards in the laptops and orcomputers with these router's wireless settings. Then the laptops and desktopcomputers can communicate with your wireless router.

New ipad, bigpond telstra wifi at home - will not let me login Argh! any assistance appreciated!


I have three computers, a Nexus 7 and an internet radio running on a Bigpond broadband modem. They all set up with either my Bigpond email password or the modem.WPS PSK number. Oddly, an iPad refuses to accept either. Obviously it is something the Apple monopoly has intentionally set up to cause an obstruction. I learned not buy Apple products - none of them.

Is your Telstra/Bigpond ADSL modem has a built-in wireless router?
If the ADSL modem has a built-in wireless router and your laptop does not have a wireless card, then you have two options to connect your laptop to the ADSL wireless router/Internet -
1. Purchase a PCMCIA wireless adapter and insert it into the PCMCIA slot in your laptop. One of my favourites is made by Netgear.
or
2. Purchase a USB wireless adapter, the only disadvantage with this solution is, it uses a USB port and if your laptop has only one USB port. This is a problem if you need to connect other USB devices. Then you also need to purchase a 4 port USB hub to give you additional USB ports.

Check if it's recognised on the local area network etc,make sure driver is installed and you may need to reset all pc,router etc to get connection.Now remember you need a router for this to work,with only a modem it will not function.You also need to restart all instruments etc before it's picked up by the router and the network..Google a bit and it will solve this.Make sure it uses wifi and not bluetooth as then it will need the right bluetooth connection to your pc..
