    Do you mean wireless connection?

    Check that WIndows Zero Configuration is enabled and do not use third party application for wireless configuration.

    Do you need to set a WEP or WPA key?

    What wireless access point do you have - a, b, g or n ?

    What spec is your wireless card in the laptop?

Internet want start


Hi mtaylor9,

Routers are great but they do have issues with distance, or certain walls that can interupt the connections. My suggestion is to have your daughter when she is connected to walk away from the router step by step, and continue this until it drops. This will give you the distance it will work for you. Then either move the router closer to her destination, or you can get another router than can act as a passthrough. The last option is to run ethernet wire everywhere which really defeats the purpose of wireless.

Good Luck

No internet


Hi! Saft question but is the wireless connection switched on? on My Satellite there is a little switch at the front near the clasp the keeps the lid locked, turn it to the right and a little Amber light comes on.
If you are wirelessly connected and using Windows try hovering over the internet connction bars down to the right on your taskbar it should say wireless connections available click on to connect, also if using a secure network you'll need to input the security code for your p.c. to communicate. This should sort it!
Good Luck and a Very Happy New Year to you and your Family!

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.

My ethernet keeps on blinking and the wireless has no light,


If the wireless light does not come on at all,
on the working computer, type (gateway.2wire.net) in internet explorer, on the top, click on "Home Network".
on the right under "Status at a Glance", make sure the "Disable" button is showing besides "Wireless", but dont click it.
But If yours says "Enable", click on it.

If that does not work, make sure that you are connecting to the right network. the name will be shown in the same section as above. The password is on the bottom of the modem/router on the sticker.

My wired pc keeps discconecting from internet


Check for wire loose connection and then any time setting for your dhcp connection. If they are ok check your network connectivity do as follows.

Startup
run
type cmd
at the prompt type ping <your router ip address> -t
kepp watching the reply

use your computer as normally and check when it gets disconnect by watching above

may be some corrupted program send packets in an un usual rate (it can be virus/trojan) so the router blocks those port and your computer disconnect from the network.

Rather from all the above change the PCI Network adapter replace with a new network card.

Hi,

It really depends on what "modem" Orange provided you with and how your personal PC is connected to the modem.

If the "modem" provided by Orange uses WiFi (such as Livebox) networking, then it is a matter of setting up your daighter's laptop to access and use the Livebox WiFi Network. In this case no router is needed since your modem is also a router.

If your PC is connected via Ethernet port to the "modem" and Orange's "modem" is a single Ethernet output port, you would need an AP/Router (Wireless since I am presuming the your daughter's laptop would be accessing the Internet wirelessly) such as the LinkSys WRT54G.

If your PC is connected via USB port to the "modem" and Orange's "modem" has only a USB output port (no Ethernet), you need to make your PC as the default gateway/software router and share your PC's Internet connection. If you are connecting your daughter's laptop using Ethernet cable, then you don't need a WiFi AP/Router but an ordinary hub. If on the other hand the new laptop would connect wirelessly, you would still need something like the WRT54G.

Hope that this be of some help/idea. Pls post again how things turned out or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.
