    Do you mean wireless connection?

    Check that WIndows Zero Configuration is enabled and do not use third party application for wireless configuration.

    Do you need to set a WEP or WPA key?

    What wireless access point do you have - a, b, g or n ?

    What spec is your wireless card in the laptop?

You most likely are not using a proxy server. Ensure your settings mirror the above, especially the "Use a proxy server..." setting.

try to ping websites. start>run>cmd> ping aim.com if it has replies it means you have an internet connection, if no replies you are not connected to internet. Now if it has replies and you cannot browse using IE then try to reinstall IE.

Laptop wont connect to the internet.this web page cannot be displ


If you are connecting to a wireless router make sure that your internal wireless is turned on it is usually visible on the laptop and the switch may be on a bar above the keyboard or possibly on the side of the laptop there should also be an icon in the system tray by where the time is shown that shows a pc with little waves coming off of it if it has a red x on it then the wireless is not turned on. If you are connecting using an ethernet cable make sure there are link lights (amber and green) lit up where the cable plugs into the laptop.

No internet


Hi! Saft question but is the wireless connection switched on? on My Satellite there is a little switch at the front near the clasp the keeps the lid locked, turn it to the right and a little Amber light comes on.
If you are wirelessly connected and using Windows try hovering over the internet connction bars down to the right on your taskbar it should say wireless connections available click on to connect, also if using a secure network you'll need to input the security code for your p.c. to communicate. This should sort it!
Good Luck and a Very Happy New Year to you and your Family!

My daughter came home from college and we tried to hook her acer laptop (with vista home basic) up to our ethernet connection. My laptop is hooked up to it and also our desktop. Hers wont just be connected...


open up internet explorer>tools>connections and make sure never dial a connection is ticked as it seems as if its trying to dial a connection instead of using the always online connection that the router provides.

Close IE and the open it up again, refresh window if required and it should go online

My ethernet keeps on blinking and the wireless has no light,


If the wireless light does not come on at all,
on the working computer, type (gateway.2wire.net) in internet explorer, on the top, click on "Home Network".
on the right under "Status at a Glance", make sure the "Disable" button is showing besides "Wireless", but dont click it.
But If yours says "Enable", click on it.

If that does not work, make sure that you are connecting to the right network. the name will be shown in the same section as above. The password is on the bottom of the modem/router on the sticker.

Im trying to connect to xboxlive.im connected to the internet,my xbox 360 keeps failing to update


It depends how you are connected to the internet an easy way that i did it with is by connecting it through my ethernet connection in the back of my computer then connecting through the internet with the blue USB cord that comes with your internet connection if you bought DSL. but if you have broadband there are a few ways if you have a linksys and your internet is traveling through there then you can just plug in the ethernet cable to one of the connection areas still available in the back of the linksys. Now trying to connect wireless to xbox live can be a little different and depending on the reason xbox live gives you for not being able to connect it could possibly be a problem with your computer but i can still help you with that so just post something else about it and tell me how it goes also if you get it working you should send me a friend request or tell me your name because i usually have around the max of a hundred friends so a friend request wont work.

Hi,

It really depends on what "modem" Orange provided you with and how your personal PC is connected to the modem.

If the "modem" provided by Orange uses WiFi (such as Livebox) networking, then it is a matter of setting up your daighter's laptop to access and use the Livebox WiFi Network. In this case no router is needed since your modem is also a router.

If your PC is connected via Ethernet port to the "modem" and Orange's "modem" is a single Ethernet output port, you would need an AP/Router (Wireless since I am presuming the your daughter's laptop would be accessing the Internet wirelessly) such as the LinkSys WRT54G.

If your PC is connected via USB port to the "modem" and Orange's "modem" has only a USB output port (no Ethernet), you need to make your PC as the default gateway/software router and share your PC's Internet connection. If you are connecting your daughter's laptop using Ethernet cable, then you don't need a WiFi AP/Router but an ordinary hub. If on the other hand the new laptop would connect wirelessly, you would still need something like the WRT54G.

Hope that this be of some help/idea. Pls post again how things turned out or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.
