do your router modem got a wifi wire? or does it capable on wireless connection. try to use a windows xp not vista. it must be the problem. or configure it manually on your wireless connection in control panel. hope that helps!
1). Try another USB port on the PC / Laptop. I have discovered that some USB ports mess up sometimes.
2). Check if you have a firewall software on this computer (some of those that normally pops up with messages at the bottom-right of your screen saying things like 'Allow, Block, etc". If you have one of such, you may want to go into the setting and disable firewall briefly and test your Dongle again. If it now works, then Allow the Dongle in the firewall settings.
3). Uninstall the Dongle. Shutdown and restart your computer. Go to Program files and delete the folder where the program was installed. Then use the CD that came with your Dongle to do an install. Then finally connect your Dongle. Should work.
If you mean to access WiFI, then all you have to do is buy a WiFi dongle. Install it and then insert the dongle into the USB port. and you are on.
But, if you want to run a WIFi hot spot on your PC, then you need to install a wireless router so that other devices having a WiFI capability can connect to it. You need to set up a WireLess LAN for which there exists a wizard in Windows.
Initially, pls determine the IP address of the Windows laptop. Pls include Subnet Mask, Default Gateway and DNS. Power off the Windows laptop. Thereafter, set the MAC to static IP address and copy the numbers from the Windows laptop to the Mac. Soon as the Mac is working, power on the Windows laptop. If ther wil be an instance that Windows displays that the IP/Network address is already in use. power down the Windows laptop. Modify the Mac by increasing the last digit of the static IP addres by at least 1. Try again.
This is of course assuming that the WiFi of the Mac is working and there are no security WEP/WPA being used on the WiFi router.
Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa. Happy Holidays.
