More information please.
What operating system?
Has the machine been working previously? Have you or your friend ever had the laptop connected to the internet?
If so, what type of connection? Dial up or cable?
If a dial up connection was used, have you configured the browser properly to connect to your wireless cable connection?
The answers should clarify the situation, making it easier for someone to advise you.
hi, i have an hp pavillion 305w desktop pc. i have a cable modem (motorola surfboad) I just got a refurbished DELL Latitude D600 laptop from a friend. he told me to just buy the D Link wirless rangebooster G router, he said that was all i needed, i guess the card needed is already inserted being that he told me not to get any card, just the router.
Well no-one can get this laptop connected to the internet, I use aol (even though I have the modem, I just like it) It just keeps saying no connection found. I am right on top of the router, so thats not it, my boyfriend came over with his laptop and got an internet connection, but I can't. Dell coulding understand why, nor can d link. I am using an ethetrnet cable since thats what I was told by both companies that I needed and still nothing, I also want to hook these 2 computers up, but dont dare try this since i cant even get my laptop to get an intetrnet connection by itself, like i said my boyfriend came by with his laptop and had access off my router. what am I doing wrong. If anyone can help, I will need really simple step by step instructions, dell and d link were no help. please help me thanks
