    I have AT&T wireless DSL w 2 laptops and printer. Works very well. I'm trying to help my brother who has the Hughes system. I know nothing about satellite system set up and he knows even less. He has a very large home w large rock fireplaces. The router is at one end of the house and the wireless signal needs to work at the other end of the house. Do the wireless G "repeaters" help in this situation?

I set up a Hughes system last month using this Linksys WAP:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16833124012
Hardwire it to the computer first to access the setup page and then hardwire it to the Hughes modem.
You don't need the setup CD just get set it up via the access page. I have a spare switch so I connected the WAP, the computer and the Hughes modem together via the switch while I set everything up it was very easy. Linksys have an excellent FAQ page and live help if you run in to problems.

Is there a way to get my Toshiba Satellite pro 440CDX to conncect to a ethernet cord and not dial up


SETTING UP A BROADBAND CONNECTION (non dial-up connection)

First you need to decide what type of broadband and Internet service you require and these are -
1. DSL that uses your existing telephone line.
2. Cable that uses a cable service and can include a cable TV service.
3. A wireless 3G network uses the mobile/cell phone network and can be separate or combine with your cell phone account. This type of Internet connection uses an USB wireless device shaped like an USB memory stick.
Note - Combined services generally offer discount pricing and may include a modem/wireless router.

If you use a wireless router with the DSL or Cable Internet service then your laptop with a wireless card can then connect to the Internet. You can also connect to a free WiFi hot spots like McDonalds, Star Bucks, the Airport etc. using the wireless card in your laptop.
If you use the wireless 3G wireless broadband service, then you can access the Internet anywhere where your ISP has 3G wireless coverage. You need to check the service coverage area where you need Internet service.
Once you decide what type of broadband your require, then you need to check with the various Internet Service providers to see if they can offer and the cost of the various plans.
Note the download limits and the associated additional costs if you exceed the monthly download limits. Once you sign up with a Internet Service provider, their documentation will include setting up instructions and/or installation CD.

When I try to download games from the nintendo ds shop, It keeps telling me that I have to connect to the internet and I don't know how to.


Here is a link to the downloadable Nintendo DSi XL manual: http://www.nintendo.com/consumer/downloads/UTL_ops_eng.pdf

On page 73 of the manual it has a good description on what the requirements are to connect the DSi to the internet. At a minimum you would need a broadband internet connection (cable modem, DSL, etc.), and a wireless router to run a wireless network. The DSi connects to the internet over a wireless (Wi-fi) network.

Once you have the equipment set up you need to join your DSi to your wireless network. Page 79 of the manual describes the most common scenario for connecting a DSi to a home wireless network.

Wireless Home network will not stay connected to internet


So you have a DSL modem connected to a router connected to a wireless router connected to both your computers? Sounds like you need to just get a wireless modem and throw all the routers away.

How to start wireless in Toshiba Satellite 1905 s 301


What you need first is to install the wireless driver for your wireless card in your computer. If you don't have one you need to purchase a wireless card.
Then read the following info to decide what type of Internet access you require.

Wireless connections to the Internet can be achieved by several methods and it depends upon the method of delivery by the Internet Service Provider in your location.
The most common is by DSL and cable, the modems that are used with DSL and cable connection can have a built-in wireless router. Your computer will require a wireless card to connect to the modem/wireless router and the range is restricted to approx. 100 ft depending where the wireless router is located within the building.

The laptop's wireless card can be a built-in device or a plug-in device eg a PCMCIA card or a USB device. and these can also connect to a wifi hot spot in locations such as McDonalds. Star Bucks etc.

There is another method that can connect into the Internet that uses a USB wireless device that connects to a G3 network, bacically a type of mobile transmission and the device is locked into a specific Internet Service Provider. This method gives a wider mobile range (even across states) of connecting to the Internet but usually at a higher cost.

Basically you need to see what the Internet Service Providers offer in your location. Beware of the costs of the various plans they offer in broadband speed, their download limits and the penality for exceeding the limits etc.

When you decide which method you choose, you need to consider setting up your wireless network securely to prevent unauthorized access.

Computer says connected to internet,, wont display page


usually routers are setup using DHCP... on your second computer. try going to 
start, control panel,  networkconnection,  "your LAN connection",\ properties Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) (should be checked)
Obtained Ip address automatically should be selected
Obttained Dns server automatically should be selected.
then click OK, OK to save settings...

for dial up simply a modem .... on laptops if you do not have a builtin modem you can purchase a pc-card modem that goes into your pcmcia slot ... for highspeed either a ethernet (same option as modem) but almost all modern laptops have a built in ethernet ... or usb ... also I highly recommend a router if you are going highspeed ... even if you only have one computer ... a router will protect your system because it provides a NAT firewall. If you go with a router make sure to set up the internet connection on the router do not tunnel through the router with a PPPoE connection
