I reported about my laptop ehternet connection port and you replied on a UPS problem that I do not know about. It is good that I did not use one of your paid programs if this is what you provide, apple answers for orange question. There is even no place provided for me to reply to you except to make this post.

The HN9000 should have an ethernet port. You will require two ethernet cables to connect the desktop to the router.
1. Connect the ethernet cable from the Modem to the Ethernet Input port on the Router (It is generally placed away from the other ports on the back of the router.) 2. Connect another ethernet cord from one of the output ports on the router to the desktop computer. 3. On the laptop, turn on your wireless card. The process for this differs from computer to computer. If you were to provide the model of laptop, I could provide you specific instructions. 4. The network setup should be complete.

Telephone wall-plate <---- 4-strand telephone-cord ---> telephone-port in modem

AC power from wall-plate to modem.

LAN port #1 <--- Ethernet cable --> network-port on desktop/laptop computer #1.
LAN port #2 <--- Ethernet cable --> network-port on desktop/laptop computer #2.
LAN port #3 <--- Ethernet cable --> network-port on desktop/laptop computer #3.
LAN port #4 <--- Ethernet cable --> network-port on desktop/laptop computer #4.

Configure the router's wireless adapter:
* set a SSID
* set an encryption-level, e.g., 'WPA'
* set a network password

Use the SSID/password to configure your wireless devices (iPod Touch, iPad, XBOX 360, etc.)

How do I connect my netgear router to my desktop internet to use with my laptop. Followed instructions but when cable is disconnect from my laptop I can't connect to the internet


First Connect the Desktop with Netgear Router with the Ethernet cable. Open the Netgear GUI and configure a Wireless Network. Once its configured, switch On the WiFi switch from your Laptop and try to connect your Laptop. Make sure your laptop has an in-built Wifi adapter, if it doesn't then you would need to buy an USB based Wifi Adapter.

Also if you want to use the Internet with your Desktop PC without being connected with the Netgear Router then make sure it has Wireless connection capability.

IM having trouble connecting my wifes new acer to the internet using an ethernet cable


A couple of things to check. make sure you are using a good cable. Either try the cable on another PC or use a cable that is working on another pc. When you plug in the cable do the lights at the ethernet jack light up and also does the coorsponding light on the router light up when you it into the pc. IF do not have any lights, you can check to make sure the PC sees the ethernet adapter, you might also check in the BIOS to make sure the ethernet adapter is not disabled. If none of this helps, and since the PC is new, I would contact Acer Warranty support for assistance.

Things to try:

1. Plug in the ethernet cable then restart the laptop.

2. Right click on your local area connection and make sure its enabled

3. Make sure your wireless adapter is disabled.

4. Check if you need a static ip address on your work network. and if so have them assign you an ip address for your laptop.

5 Test your computers ethernet port on another wired network to make sure that it is good.

6. Get a usb to ethernet adapter for your laptop if your ethernet port is bad on your laptop.

Connecting Laptop wireless and Desktop wired to the router


Do you need to see the desktop or just share folders from each other? If the latter then you need to do the following:

Use Windows Explorer and select a folder you want to share. Right click and select sharing and security.

On the sharing tab click on Share this folder. Enter a share name ( I like to enter the PC name _folder name; Rick1_Downloads)

Click on Permissions. If your ok with everyone using the PC's and Laptops having access then highlight Everyone and click on Full Control.

Do this on each PC and Laptop.

That should be it or darned near close.

Ethernet Port failure new router


Check the socket in either the router or the PC. I had the same problem, only with my modem. When I inspected the port, the pins were misaligned, causing it to drop a connection. I corrected mine with a screwdriver, which is not ideal but it works.
