Having problems with your Advent Netbook ?

Comp will not connect to internet and tells us there is a cable not connected. It is wireless and the modem is working with all other comps in house. I have checked the modem, switched it off and restarted, I have removed the battery and all power from the comp. When I try to connect it does not recognise the BT home hub and tells me a cable is not attached. I have checked the wireless switch is on. I would be grateful for any suggestions.

Is your wireless modem set to broadcast it's SSID? your laptop won't find it if it is not.
Are the wireless settings for the laptop set to discover networks? can it find any others? are the drivers for the wireless device properly installed?
If it is asking for a cable then you are looking at the wrong network device on the computer, look for the wireless configuration program

I need to set up my IP provided WiFi router-modem (Westell 327M) for use with my two laptops, such that the router-modem provides me internet access via ethernet cables (not interested in the WiFi aspect of the router modem). The IP (Verizon) has given me the runaround for over three years, so I've had to use their Westell 6100 ethernet modem (and swap out the ethernet cable, only allowing me to surf w/one laptop at a time).
