non stated, of 100s.
why post lacking such key facts.
NO PC sated, just a nebuluas complaq.
no OS stated, just linux something
why not ask on YOUR linux forum.
try Ubuntu? yet?
best is to match PC old to Linux old.
but be impossible for me to guess what PC you own.

is the desktop connecting wirelesslly like the laptop? What kind of router are u uaing, if you are ccnnecting via a wired connection, you need to rt click on my network, "on the desktop"go to properties, add a new connection, and let the wizard walk you through the setup, it just isn't set up right for the network, you can also use the one that says connect to a home network.

By any chance, are you trying to use something other than Windows to manage the wireless adapter? If you are, remove it.
Now, Click on Start, right click on Network highlight properties, and click on manage network connections on the Tasks menu.
Your two options will be the icons for your LAN and Wireless Network. Is it enabled and without red or yellow marks? It could be disable, it could be not connected and you can't view wireless networks because the switch is off, or it may just nut see your unsecure network (unlikely).
If the above is clear, right click on the wireless and highlight Properties and left click so it brings up the Networking tab. Highlight IPv4 and click on Properties. Make sure the Obtain dots are ticked. That should work, since you are running unsecured.
If it already is, check the red X or if it isn't click OK and close down the box.
Now, back to where your Wireless card is showing, right click it and you have Disable, Connect/Disconnect, Status, Diagnose etc.
If you're still Disconnected but not Disabled, click on Connect/Disconnect. Does it show your wireless network?
By this time, it should. If it doesn't post back. The other possibility is that you take your computer to a wireless internet cafe, McDonalds, Panera Bread, or motel with WiFi and test it there.

TRY THESE DRIVERS

The 502 cannot be reset by unplugging it. It has a battery. There is a reset right in the middle on the back. There is a pinhole and you push a toothpick or unrolled paperclip inside the hole and it resets. There are a couple of issues here. Does the EMTA (modem) turn off and reset, knocking you off or does your computer go off while the modem is fine (you will still have phone). If you still have phone then you have another problem. You have a router or a bad ethernet cable. If the modem is going offline I bet you have a splitter on the coax coming into your house. One lead from the splitter goes to your tv and the other your modem. If that is happening it is your splitter. It isnt bad, you just want to re-seat your cables into that splitter. Just undo them, push them in and out of the splitter a few times and your modem will go back online for another year or so
