hello i have a note book VA10 (completly new) and i have installed a LAN in the add-remove program in the control panel. How does one connect to internet I do not have AOL, I have installed Internet Explorer, Windows messenger, High Speed option ( need to be paid) installed. Is it possible to connect through a cell phone or another laptop? What do I need to connect to the internet through another computer-lap top that has internet? ( maybe SUB cable or what else?) Thank you so much Polona Garcia

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

at the run box type cmd and hit ok, then type ipconfig and make note of your gateway ip address. if it is 169.xxx.xxx.xx that means you are not receiving an ip address from your dhcp server on the network. if you setup your network properties manually then double check them to make sure they are correct.

    Ref: the first reply... actually it would be your IP address that would get a 169.xxx address if DHCP wasn't working....but I really doubt you're even at that stage of troubleshooting..yet. Do you have an Internet account of some type to connect to? IE, as High Speed DSL, or cable account/service, or even a dial up account. You mention LAN, so I would assume you're referring to a high speed service. You need an account first..confirm you have an account with a user id and password from your service provider. You will also recv a modem of some type from your service provider, either a DSL or CABLE modem, whichever service you decide to go with. Plug in, and it should work out of the box.. if it doesn't then you proceed to the next stage of troubleshooting. As for connecting via CELL PHONE and/or ANOTHER COMPUTER, short answer is YES, you can use them, but trying to explain that configuration here would be challenging. :)

    one option would be to eanle Internet Connection Sharing on the computer that is connected to the internet and then make sure that you computer and the computer that is connnected to the internet are connected to the same hub or switch. The computer with ICS (Intrernet Connection Sharing)should issue the IP Addresses via DHCP and allow addtional users to use its Internet connection to get on the internet. Hope this helps
