Currently, the most common way to connect a desktop system to the internet, is by using the network jack to connect to a broadband cable modem or DSL modem. To do either you must have the service from either you cable provider or phone company (For DSL) and have the modem device for the service. Fees run $20 to $50 a month depending on speed you subscribe.
You connect the device to the system using a CAT5 network cable to a RJ45 (8 wire telephone type jack). Some Cable/DSL modems also have USB connection capability for the few systems these days that do not have a built in RJ45 connector To use them, you install the associated software, then connect the USB cable when prompted.
If you don't have Cable/DSL then dial up telephone modem is the next option, this requires a telephone modem that has an RJ11c telephone cord jack connection, most current computers only have a telephone modem as an option, but they can still be bought for around $20 and you will require a dial up internet service (Few remain, one is Netzero in the USA)

Depends on the hardware/software you have at the moment and as to whether you want broadband or dialup connection. Most people go for broadband thes days. So you would need to sign up to an ISP ( Internet Service Provider) like Sky, Virgin, Tiscali etc (there are many providers you pay your money and take your choice), Sky is good if you already have Sky TV....adds about £5-10 per month and you get the equipment fro free. The equipment supplied will be a router plus phone adapters (you need these to separate the phone from broadband usage).
You plug the PC (upto 4 PCs) into the router, and also the phone line cable...pop in the provided CD follow the instructions on screen and you should be up and running in no time... you will of course also need a power socket nearby....if the router is wireless (ala the sky one) then you could connect another PC (laptop perhaps) elsewhere in the house ..but thats another story.

Hello,
There are two ways on how you can do this. Either via wireless or wired connection. For wireless, you should a wireless router and the adapter. For the wired connection, you can just plug the ethernet cable from your modem to the network card on your desktop pc.
It would be best also if you can share other info regarding the problem.

Internet disconnects

It would seem as if you have a problem with your broadband bandwidth. You may need to add more RAM to allow the computer to buffer the video in the background.

Internet Explorer Cannot display the webpage. It appears you are connected to the Internet, but you might want to reconnect to the internet.

Ok.. It would be helpful if you would provide more info than that, but lets see what I can do.
So, you might be unable to connect to the internet. It depends if you have a laptop or a desktop, and if you go wireless or by that little phone looking plug in. If you have that "hook" check if its connected. If you got wireless, than check if wireless is on and try connecting to a network. If none of tha doesn't work then reboot the computer! "The most heavenly solution to most computer problems"...

Hope I helped!! Good luck and plz rate!

How to connect to the internet without the usb

When you get the USB device from Sprint, you should have gotten a driver CD. Run the driver CD first, plug in the device when youre prompted to do so, restart the computer if youre asked to, and launch the Sprint connection program. It should establish an internet connection. Once thats done, then launch Internet Explorer and surf the web.
