How do i hook it up to the internet. i have been giving a gateway model fmn400c and icant figure out what hooks it up to the internet... i currently have a laptop hooked up to the internet via cable...


Is there a NIC in the Gateway? A place to plug in a cat 5 cable? If yes, there is your answer. You will need a place to plug in the other end ... if you dont have a router, you will need one. I recommend LinkSys routers though there are other brands.

If you have no NIC, get a PCI based NIC at the Big Box Store. They can tell you how to put it in or for a small fee, they will do it for you.

Cannot hook to internet


This may not be a solution, but I recently was attacked by a free software website, that disabled my internet connection settings.

In Internet Explorer properties, or the menu item Tools / Options, there is a tab called "Connections" this is where your computer's internet connection decisions are made.
One option, in the LAN Settings button, is to "Automatically Detect Settings". My attacker somehow repeatedly disabled this option and I had to enable this each time I restarted my computer.

Something to try.

My compaq prasario is telling me I have no ip address how can i solve this problem i cannot connect to the internet


How are you connecting to the Internet now¿ That is a serious question since I will assume that this is a second computer hooked up to the same connection you want with the Presario. I also will assume that you don't have a Gateway / Router between the modem and the actual computer. I will assume that you want both of these computers on the Internet at the same time so you will want to hook up the Gateway. To reset the modem so that it will accept a different MAC Address (It's a computer thing) you will need to remove all the connections to the modem and pull out the battery that is behind a hidden door. The modem will need to be in this condition for 1 minute and then it can be hooked up to the new Gateway or Computer however you want it to be hooked up now that the modem has been reset. Good luck.

My ps3 keeps saying it can't obtain my ip address. Why is that? and how do i solve this problem


this is because when you hook up a internet cable to the ps3. its searchign for a connection.
You may be behind a firewall or router. you probably need your router password put in if you are indeed using a router. Otherwise if your not hooked up to the internet you have no need to go to "Network" in the consoles homepage.

IP address is your personal connection address on the internet. Assigned by the company you rent it from for you Home internet connection.

Hope this helps.

I hear Resistance 2 for ps3 is gonna be amazing Have Fun!

When we hook the wireless router to the modem and computer, we cannot access the internet. AS soon as we unplug it and put the computer and modem back the way it was, we can get back on the internet. How...


Log into the router so you can see the settings. Somewhere under WAN settings there should be something for you to "clone MAC address" click on that so the router clones the MAC address from the computer and this should work.

Can't hook up my router. i hook up the router but cant remember how to set it up to pick up the ip address' I have a Blitzz netwave base g4 wireless router. how do i connect to the internet?


open your internet explorer and type in 192.168.1.254
it should ask you for your password
the settings are in there.
set it up according to which internet service you have be it dsl cable etc.
there should be some instructions in that page when you get to the setup page.

When I set up the router It comes back with the internet is not hook up, but when I hook the intern et up to the lap top it goes right through Please help me with this problem


try restarting the modem while it is connected to the router. the modem probably thinks that it is hooked straight up to a computer not a router. if that doesn't work go to the web gui by going to the routers ip address on a computer connected to the router. the easiest way to find its ip is to go to run (or the bottom search bar if in vista) and type in cmd. once this is up type in ipconfig /all look for the the default gateway. write this number down somewere.
next go get on a web browser (internet exploiter or fire fox) and in the address bar type in that number. this will take you to the web gui. start adjusting the router so that it works with your internet service.
