If your laptop has a LAN port, good. If not, you can get a PCMCIA card for LAN for around $10 on eBay. Then, connect your laptop LAN port to your desktop LAN port with a Crossover ethernet cable. Make sure you specify you need a crossover cable at the computer store, they are different from the normal ethernet cables found in most stores. Now dialup to the internet with your desktop. Now you need to go to your dialup connections. In Windows XP, you can do this by going to Start>Connect To>All ConnectionsIt will be different in other versions of windows.Right click on your dialup connection and choose properties. Somewhere in the properties there should be an option to share the dialup connection. Do this. At this point, your laptop should have internet.Good luck!

You don't. The laptop has to connect to the internet separately, either directly through a telephone line (for dial-up service) or a broadband DSL/satellite/cable modem.

How do you connect your PlayStation 3 to the internet?

First you need to already have an Internet service to connect to from the PS3. The PS3 can connect to the internet service either wired with an ethernet cable plugged into your router or modem or wirelessly through a wireless modem or router. Once you have a wireless internet source or have connected your PS3 to a modem or router with an ethernet cable you can begin the process to connect the PS3 to the internet. The first step is to go to your PS3 setting menu and go to network settings. Then you go to the network setting and try to connect to the internet. My PS3 was able to perform this task on the auto setting for both the wired and wireless connections. When connecting the first time no password was used and later learned that somehow the password connection setup was broken less, but switched to wired for complete connection stability and greater speeds on connection tests for PS3.

How do you connect your PlayStation 3 to your comcast receiver?

If you mean your Comcast modem for the internet you purchase a Cat 5 or Cat 6 ethernet cable long enough to go from the back of the PS3 to where the modem is. If you already have a computer connected to the modem then you will either need to unplug the computer each time you want to use the PS3 or purchase a router so the signal can be routed to both devices. Both items are often found at greatly reduced sale prices Just because you have Comcast for TV does not mean you can use it to connect to the internet, but if Comcast is already providing internet service to your house it is easy to run a router from the modem and plug both the PC and PS3 into it and no service charge or equipment rentals are necessary

I can connect to wifi using other modems but cant connect to my own modem on my laptop any help?

Hmmm. So what you are saying is you can go into a restaurant or free wireless area and connect OK but you can't connect to your home router?The usual reason you can't connect to a modem/router is the password is not right. It has to be exact.Another reason is you may have the modem/router set to use only N speed and your computer is only rated at G so it can't connect. Make sure the Modem/Router is set for ALL speeds.Make sure the Security mode is the same on both devices, WPA2 on the modem/router has to be WPA2 on the computer. Some devices won't connect with TKIP or AES try one then the other.Sometimes even the channel your on can make a difference if you don't have it the same on both of them. Try putting the Modem/router channel selector on auto if you have it.Make sure your computer is trying to connect to yournetwork and not your neighbors by mistake.

What is internal modem in networking?

An internal modem is a modem that is installed inside the computer. Modem is short for modulator-demodulator. It modulates by converting digital signals into sound waves for transmission over a telephone line. It demodulates by decoding the sound waves coming from the phone lines and converting them back into usable digital signals. Since it does both, that makes it an I/O device. Early Internet providers allowed you to access the Internet using a phone number so you could connect using a dial-up modem.
