Having problems with your Dell Dimension E310 PC Desktop ?

I'm trying to install a Netgear wireless N router on a dimension e310 PC. Everytime I unplug the wire from the modem, it tells me that a wire is disconnected. When I follow the steps to install the router, I never get a connection. How can I install this router without the PC knowing the cable has been disconnected?


Answers :

Hello,
\015\012
\015\012Do you have a wireless adaptor connected to the PC? Your PC has a NIC adaptor on-board but not a wireless NIC, thus when you disconnect your router you see the disconnected error. The router will broadcast to wireless devices but the devices themselves must have a wireless adaptor installed.

Unplug the power from both the modem and the router for 20 seconds then plug them back in and your computer should get a connection to the internet. When you do that it resets them both so it can connect to the internet. Why do you need the pc not knowing it has been disconnected?
