I have a pc which is connected to ntl/virgin by broadband But i also have an old laptop which i want to use now and again The only thing is i cant find my installation disk to connect my laptop up with, is there any other way i can do it or do i need the disc??
If you are broadband, turn off power to modem. Plug lead into your laptop then turn on power to modem. Wait a minute and you should be connected. XP did it automatically for me. It was a while ago I think I was prompted for my password. NTL will help you, they answer pretty quick now and will not charge you if the query is internet related.( you get credited) they will charge if you are having a non ntl problem, eg trying to install software.
You don't need your NTL disc. I plugged in my old PC when this one went wrong and it worked straight away. This was on Cable Broadband using the ethernet sockets. You might have to adjust your browser especially if it is configured for Dial up
