Having problems with your Dell Dimension E520 PC Desktop ?

Dimension e520 - disconnected computer to get it repaired. Now trying to hook everything back up. Have wireless in the house, but can't get on the internet. Says needs to be hooked up to local area network. Is something plugged in wrong?


Answers :

This normally refers to the RJ45 connector/cable from the computer (looks like a fat Phone Connector) to your router or modem. If you are using wireless, though, you will not use this cable to get to Internet. Was the wireless working before this repair? If so then the repair folks would seem to have reconfigured your computer, and you ought to take it back to be reconfigured.
Components of a home network include some kind of service (broadband or dial up) a modem, a router (wire or wireless) and computers.

\015\012If the computers are wireless, you use a wireless router. You can mix wire and wireless, obviously..
\015\012
\015\012If you do this, the routers should be peer to peer (dont use the up link on the downstream device. ) One device must be plugged into the modem ... on that device, use the uplink.
