Hooking up router

Thank you for the quick reply but I'm sort of a novice so I don't know how to do that. Did I mention previously that my comp is a laptop?

    I actually figured it out. I need a different cable due to the way my comp hooks up to my modem. But thanks for your input.

Hi,
although I don't support IP Pirates(if they can afford not to be). there is one trick that may help but not if the security on the router is strong as they can set it to only hand out 1 number. However if you know the IP(192.168.0.2) that is being handed out. then you can manually set the wireless adapter on the second system to have an IP that is +1(192.168.0.3) (instead of a DHCP setting)of the number you are given. make sure the gateway and subnet mask is exactly as is handed out to the first system.
you can easily view this info. from a command prompt and typing:ipconfig /all

hope this helps

Wireless Connectivety (Home)


Ok so off we go, first thing is since you reinstalled the OS, computer probably lost the driver files for the wireless device in you Dell Dimension. So you will have to find out the manufacturer of the wireless device and reinstall those drivers if you have not done so.

To verify this you need to go to the Device Manager and look for any hardware in the computer that is not installed properly (will have a symbol by it) defining there is a problem with the device, or not recognized by the computer.

Once the device manager comes back ok (everything operating normally) then you need to go to network connections. Look to see if you have a wireless connection there? If you do, then you need to connect to the wireless access point (router) So View available wireless connections. then connect to it.

There is the possibility that your friend set up the router connection with a wep kep (encryption) If so then you might just need to reset the router to factory defaults to remove this. (resetting the router to factory defaults is different depending on your router model) You will have to look this info up in the manual. Once the encryption is off it will become an open access point and you should be able to connect to it ok.

I know this was a lot of information in a short time, if you have questions please feel free to let us know.

Also if anyone else has a better (or easier) way for David to accomplish all of this please ring in.

I have a laptop comp i just got a desk top comp i have embarq broadband internet which comp do i pit the cd into to install and which comp do i hook up the embarq box to?


It sounds as though you will need to get router to allow the sharing of the Internet between the two computers. Using a router makes it much easier to share an Internet connection between multiple computers. You would connect the Embarq box to the router on the WAN port, and then connect your computers to the LAN ports of the router. You may also want to get a wireless router in the event your laptop has a Wi-Fi connection.

Black screen


Hey there everett 403, my first suggestion would be that your video card is malfunctioning. You have not mentioned if you installed one. If you have one installed, begin by removing it and switching your monitor connection to the onboard port. If this works to get the screen working, then next step is to replace the video card. If it is still not working, try removing your ram. Check it for damage of any sort. If good, reinstall and ensure to seat properly. I would also check the light on your motherboard. If it flashes, there may be a problem with your board, such as burnt capacitors. If these solutions do not solve, please include info on configuration and peripherals, and anything different you have been doing with your machine as of late. Good Luck!
