Having problems with your PC Laptops ?

Hi there, I am so not computer minded and would love your help please. I have a great new Toshiba Satellite 350 and have no idea and I mean no idea how to connect to the internet. I have a wireless modem and I don't even know how to make it wireless. I have all the technology and not the brain for it. I have a computer wiz of a Brother but he works 60 hours a week and has not been able to help. HELP ME PLEASE! Kind regards Georgia


Answers :

You'll need to make some connections.

\015\0121. Either:
\015\012 * cable-modem to 'WAN' (or 'Internet') port on the router;
\015\012 * DSL-modem to 'WAN' (or 'Internet') port on the router;
\015\012
\015\0122. Ethernet-cable from one of the 'LAN' ports on the router to the network-port on your Toshiba.
\015\012
\015\012At this point, you should be able to web-surf.
\015\012
\015\012Insert the CD-ROM that came with the router, and run the software to "configure" your router, including the "wireless" interface in the router. You get to choose an SSID (a "name" for your wireless network) and a password for your network (to keep unwanted people from "piggy-backing" on your connection).
\015\012
\015\012Then, on your Toshiba, use "view available networks" and select the SSID that you chose, and enter the password.
\015\012
\015\012Now, you can disconnect the Ethernet-cable, and you should still be able to web-surf.
\015\012
\015\012Or, instead of all the above, make a date to take your brother out to a steak-dinner, and then "guilt" him into configuring your router & Toshiba.
