Hi i am after some advice. I don't know all that much about computers so i am struggling at the moment. I have a pc which is connected to the internet and i have just brought a laptop which i want to get the Internet on but i want to connect it to my pc to do this. Can i do this through Bluetooth dongles as both the pc and laptop will support bluetooth if not will a usb male to male cable do this? If there is a better way of doing this please tell. Thanks
So you should not need any other cable/hardware to connect wirelessly. On the laptop go to Start>Connect to, then show all connections - you should see your Router and then be able to click on Connect.
i live in a shared house where there is a couple of people to are connected to this router and we can't get the laptop to connect to the router,(It finds it but will not connect) someone said you need to get an IP address but i don't know how to do this because the landlord has done this for us in the past and he isn't around for awhile.
The router is netgear and no we don't know the security code for it. So if i get an ethernet cable i can plug it into the back of the router then into my laptop and that will give me access to the internet?
