your settings in the router at your new place may not match the settings in the old place. try typing 192.168.0.1 or 192.168.1.1 in your address bar and logging on to your router (this will require you to be manually plugged in with a cat 5 cable) default passwords are usually admin/admin or admin/password. check your settings to see if something is preventing you from getting on.

My screen is too zoomed in when I try to view


You can try scrolling down the mouse wheel while holding the Ctrl key on your keyboard.

If you want to decrease the text size on a web page you can go to: View > and reduce the text size in Internet explorer (In firefox and other browsers you can go to View and use the Zoom option)

Please let me know if this helps you.

Dell Inspiron 1525 not connecting wirelessly to Sky broadband


If your wireless router is configured with SSID, encryption, MAC address filtering (if enabled) etc. then the Dell wireless card needs to be configured with these settings to allow it to communicate with the wireless router.
Check the settings on your PC's wireless settings, and configure the Dell the same way.

Can't connect to internet


hi

check the IP settings, DNS server Settings etc any required, as well also do check if the network cable is propery conected and is working on an other system

if the router is connected to a modem then then connection from the modem is generally connected to the port named INTERNET in that case try connecting that to one of the ports numbered 1 to 4 and connect the systems to other ports

cheers
pls rate if it was any help

Setting up and configuring networks


The main problem on your setup is your router. This BEFSR41 doesn't have wi-fi or wireless capability. You can only go online on your laptop if you connect it hardwired to the router just like your desktop. You must purchase a wireless router if you want your laptop to work wirelessly

Wireless connection set up


Are you trying to hook up the laptop wirelessly to the pc? because then the pc would need to have a wireless card as well....sounds like I need more info, but if you are trying to do what I think you are, you should just get a wireless router instead, hook the pc tower directly to it via ethernet cable, and then setup the laptop to connect to the router. The router would hook to your dsl or cable router....what service do you have?

Dell Truemobile 2300 - cannot connect to internet


This is usually a router configuration issue. The router has to be configured to match your new broadband settings.

For example, your old DSL may have required some kind of login which was entered into the router. For most broadband cable connections, you set the router to get an IP address automatically.

Re-run the router Setup Wizard. You can download it here:

File Sharing with Home Network...only one pc talking


The message for an unplugged network cable, means you have enabled wired network, but the cable isn't there. No problem if you are connected wireless.
To be able to access files on computers over your network, you need to enable filesharing for the desired directories or disks.
Right-click the directory or disk, go to sharing and set the correct settings. Maybe you have to allow for network sharing the first time.

Please post some feedback

Unable to detect my router


This is because your router is setting your pc at a different IP address than your original modem. Make sure router is set to enable DHCP which gives out an automatic ip address and check your wireless card and network cards are set to obtain ip address automatically. It may take a few re-starts to get on the internet as your systems will need to clear their previous DNS settings. Also i assume you have set up the home network wizard (XP) as you are now using a router and not a direct modem. Also try Start>Run, then type ipconfig /flushdns then press enter.
