Setting up a laptop to our home computer

HI
I've just got a laptop for our daughter but not sure what I need to buy in order to be able to use it with the ISP I have on our home computer.
We bought it off a mate so its got no instruction book or leads.
I just want to get it working against our broadband connection so she can use it upstairs.
Any advice would be appreciated

Hi,

As you already have a broadband at your house, its going to be very easy for you to connect the notebook in the same network.

I would assume that right now your computer would be connected directly to a DSL/Cable modem.

What you should do at this stage is that you can buy a Wireless Router.

The computer that you are using at the moment might be a desktop and may not be wireless capable.

So your Wireless router would be placed right next to your desktop and the desktop would be connected using a wire to the same router.

Your router which is wireless capale will let your notebook also connect to the internet. I am stressing on the wireless as you mentioned that the notebook will be on a different floor.

Note :- I have given this suggestion assuming that the notebook you have bought is wireless capable.
If it is not than you will have to pull a wire up to the other room and you can buy a normal router as well.

Hope that you find this as a good suggestion.

Thanks

Sammy

Books I ordered have not been downloaded--what happened?

Books you buy should be listed in your Amazon Kindle library.
Check it using a laptop or desktop.

If they aren't listed there then something went wrong with your order.

If they are listed in your Kindle library, you need to turn on your Kindle and connect it to wi-fi or 3G. Your Kindle should then automatically download the new books. If it doesn't, touch Settings and select *Sync and check for new items*. Make sure the Kindle you want to download the books to is listed as your default Kindle if you have more than one so new books will automatically download to it once it's connected.

Aswell as my daughter I've installed the drivers (Vista and 7) of the Lexmark x4550 wireless, but she can only print when my laptop is 'on'. How can she print without the use of my laptop.

Hello,
All you need to do is to remove the printer currently added on your daughter's laptop(most likely it is the printer installed on your laptop)and then add the lexmark printer manually on your daughters laptop. Make sure when you do this your laptop is turned off. If this won't work, that means that the laptop of your daughter does not detect the wireless printer.
hope this helps...

Hi I've a SAMSUNG HT-Z310 and I'm trying to connect it to my laptop or home broadband, is that possible?? If what do I need or need to do?? Many thanks Brian.

Sometimes, when connecting phones to laptops, you have to update software information on your laptop, requiring internet connection. Also, you must make sure that if your phone has an option for USB under its Connectivity in Settings, that it says PC Suite, Mass Storage, or Modem.

Note: Not all phones are able to be connected to a computer.

I cannot connect to the WIFI at work, but I can connect to my WIFI network at home, and other public networks. The wireless network at work is pushed by a D-Link 8200AP with a WAP security, just like it is...

Your laptop cannot connect to your work's wireless network because the security settings (ir WAP) in the D-Link is different to the security setting in your Netgear.
The wireless card in your laptop will need the settings changed to suit the D-Link's wireless settings ie the SSID and WAP.
You will need to change the wireless card settings in your laptop back to the Netgear's wireless settings to connect to your wireless network at home.
Some wireless cards allow you to set up different profiles for different wireless networks which allow you to switch wireless networks easily by just selecting the profile for the network you want to connect to.

you have to set up the WEP key. Open internet explorer and enter 192.168.0.1 and click on the wireless tab to set up the security key - there you can create a WEP, or WPA key - remember the key so that you cab enter it into the laptop.

My Daughter's New Laptop's Internet Connection

Make sure that the Local area connection is enabled or installed properly. Also Cable ISP such as charter registers the MAC address of the main pc on their system that is why it will not recognize your daughters laptop. You can contact charter so they can register the mac address of her NIC on their system.
