It is the same as connecting to a wireless connectivity, either PC or laptop, the thing is your laptop has to have a wireless NIC , if not you need to buy a PCMCIA card or a USB type network card

1- choose your wireless equipment
2- connect to your router
3-configure your router
4-connect your computer

cheers

My router is suddenly not working. The internet, modem, router and the wired lights are on, but the wireless and security lights aren't on and I can't connect from my laptop wirelessly.


check the wireless settings of the router.
Open the set up page of the router and make sure that the wireless SSID broadcast is enabled.
If enabled then try to change the wireless channel of the router.
if that doesn't work then try to upgrade the firmware of the router.

My wireless hp says router cannot find host name


Double check your physical connection. It should be this way

Modem > connected to Internet Port of the router
PC > connected to port 1
Laptop > can be wireless

Now you must power cycle your router and modem. Turn off router first then modem. Wait for 30 seconds. Power on modem first, then the router. You must configure the wireless settings on your laptop it doesn't connect automatically.

Want to hook laptop up to home computer via cable modem


You need a router or a wireless router to do that.
If your cable modem is wireless you can set directly via wireless network a connection with your laptop (the laptop also need a wireless card (if dont have any built in))
The connection must be done in this way

ISP ----->> Cable Modem ---->> Wireless Router o Router ----->> Computer ( 1, 2, or more)

2. Press and hold reset at the back of the router for about 15 seconds.
3. After 15 seconds turn off the router and then turn off the modem. Wait for a minute.
4. Power on modem and wait for the lights to be ready.
5. When modem lights are on, turn on router.
6. There should be 4 lights on. Power should be steady green. Internet, WLAN and Ethernet port.
7. Checked if you have Internet connectivity on your laptop while it is wired to the router.
8. If Internet is working, disconnect laptop from wired connection to the router and check available wireless network that laptop can detect.
9. The default wireless network name that the Linksys router broadcasts is "linksys". Connect to it which is an unsecured wireless network.
