The only way for making it wireless is buying a wireless network card/adapter that can be installed in your Desktop. You should look for a PCI/PCI Express Wireless Network Adapter.

How do I connect my pc to my router? There is no ether port in the back. Can it be done thru the sub?


There are more ways how to connect PC to router in your case.
My assumption is that your PC has no Ethernet port.

  1. Use wireless connection. Activate Wi-Fi card in your PC and connect it to router by wireless network.
  2. In case you do not have wireless router or you prefer cable link you can buy an USB Ethernet adapter.
Some examples:

Can I disable wireless and connect with ethernet cord and modem, for work do not want remove wireless cord, in the day want to be able to use my wireless.


Are you talking about direct-connecting via Ethernet to a cable or DSL modem? You shouldn't have to disable wireless to do that. If the cable modem has an open Ethernet port, you should be able to run a straight-thru Ethernet Cat-5 cable between that port and the Ethernet port on your laptop. The laptop should recognize that it is connected to the modem through the direct connection. Check the manual for the cable modem or information supplied by your ISP for connection details. You may have to do some setup on the modem to get an Internet connection, like having your ISP 'activate' the modem. Just be sure your Ethernet cable is a straight-thru, standard Ethernet cable, and not a 'cross-over' cable such as is used to transfer data between two computers.

I have wireless internet, and just bought a new Sanyo flatscreen with the option to use my internet on it...but it acts like it Needs a USB...does it HAVE TO have a ISB in order for me to use my internet...


The general "rule-of-thumb" for "internet ready" home theater components (TV, DVD, Blue-ray, etc.) is that they either require a wired ethernet connection, or a separately purchased "special" wireless ethernet adapter that can only be purchased from the manufacturer. The USB port will not usually give you a good internet connection with a "generic" wireless USB ethernet adapter.

In all the home theater stuff I have toyed with, the USB port allows you to watch movies or view pictures off a "jump drive" that has movies/pictures in a recognized format, and that is about it.

Anyway, unless you get a Sanyo wireless USB adapter specifically made for wireless ethernet on your set- even if you could get it to work, the bandwidth would probably make for poor picture quality- lots of screen freezes, jumping, etc. Most manufacturers have a separate, proprietary card slot for their wireless internet devices. The manufacturers do this to make a few extra bucks.
If you only have wireless ethernet at your place, you can purchase a wireless "portal" that will convert the wireless signal to ethernet so you can connect it to your set, but again it will be dependent on your wireless internet bandwidth for how well it works.
Good Luck, and Thank You for using FixYa!

How can I install a wireless router to RCA cable modem DCM425 installed by Time Warner?


From the back of your modem, follow the ethernet cable to your PC (in). Mark or remember this location. Remove this cable from the PC and insert it into the INTERNET port on your router. Then take another ethernet cable (usually supplied) and insert one end into the ETHERNET port of the router, and the other end into your PC (where you originally removed it. Remember to check all connections and plug in the modem. You should now be good to go! If your PC has an installation Wizard, you can browse thru it as well.

I AM RUNNING VISTA CAN I GET UPDATED SOFTWARE FOR MY 2WIRE PORTAL


I UPGRADED TO VISTA AND NOW I CANT GET MY 2WIRE PORTAL SOFTWARE TO INSTALL. IS THERE AN UPGRADE OR NEW SOFTWARE AVAILABLE ? ► there is no need to install the CD if ur trying to connect using an ethernet cable to the 2wire. If ur attempting a wireless connexn, u shud configure the wireless set up.

1000 SW (Model) for 2wire,Connects fine, intermittently the Broadband Link goes ORANGE and keeps me off Internet ► this is a possible line problem. Try plugging ur 2wire's phone cable directly to the phone/wall jack removing the filter or splitter in the process. Then see if the problem reoccurs. If it DOES NOT, replace ur filter with a new one. If it DOES reoccur or if it is already connected to the phone/wall jack directly, contact ur Internet service provider.

keep me posted on these...

hey there joselko,
i'm chris from sw scotland. i have the same setup - 2 wireless laptops and a pc physically connected to the router with an ethernet cable.
you just plug the ethernet cable into the 'out' hole in the back of the router and into the ethernet port in the back of the PC. then start your PC. go to control panel, then internet settings, then hit the 'connection' tab, then click the radio button that says 'never dial a connection'.
you may have to reboot, but not necessarily.
both the laptops should continue to work wirelessly and the PC should now connect directly to the internet using the router.
if you have any problems, feel free to call me on 01776840273, and ask for chris, i'll be glad to help. you can also skype me on christophergrams or using the skype number 01414165437.
good luck.
