Having problems with your Gateway MT3705 Notebook ?

I have a laptop and am connected to the internet. My problem is when I disconnect the internet I can not get on the web. The man that installed the internet does not know how to get internet if disconnected to take to another room. Can you help me?


Answers :

Are you connecting wireless or through a cable? You most likely need to go into Network Manger and set it to automatically connect to your network when it is detected. This will allow the computer to connect to networks you allow when it identifies them. You will need to do this for both Wireless and Cable connections.
I think I understand your problem, but the terms you're using to describe it need some clarification.
\015\012The internet and the web are the same thing. (the world wide web, www.,etc.)
\015\012What you want to do is be able to connect to a wireless network with your laptop, when you disconnect the ethernet cable from your router or modem, to go elsewhere in the house. Right? You can connect fine when the ethernet cable is plugged in, but there is no wireless connection.
\015\012First off, your laptop has to have a wireless adapter, which lets you connect to a wireless network. If you know you have one, proceed!
\015\012If you're not sure, you can look in the device manager or check the Gateway site list of your system specifications to be sure.
\015\012So now you have to set up your wireless network:
\015\012You don't mention whether you're using xp or vista, which makes some difference, but see the articles here or here to help you configure your network. Read the section on wireless networks, and follow the instructions to use the wizard to set yours up.
\015\012Depending on what kind of modem or router you have, and who your ISP (internet service provider) is, you can also go to their support site online and find specific instructions for setting up a wireless network with that router or for that ISP. You may need that information to correctly configure your router settings. You may already have it on hand in the technical information provided when you signed up for service.
\015\012If you have difficulty, this troubleshooter may help. There's also a version on the Vista networking page linked above.
\015\012Another good source of information is this site, which may help answer questions you have about security, etc. or help you to connect.
\015\012
I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.
