    How do I connect to Wirelss modem when moving computer


    Hi,

    Can anyone provide me with a solution to the problem that a friend has experienced with his Windows 10 PC.

    My friend had his PC switched off for some time and decided to move it from where it used to be into another room.

    He has a Telstra Modem using a wireless connection. He informs me he cannot get this pc to connect or detect his wireless modem and yet his tablet can do so without any problem.

    He has been trying for about 3 days, he asked me for help , I don't have a wireless modem as such but a dongle that's connected to my pc via USB connection.

    Can anyone provide me with any steps to get this sorted.

    The only thing I know is going into Control Panel, then go to Network or Network and Connections, after that, I'm a bit stumped.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Cheers,
    Peter

    :)

    How do I connect to Wirelss modem when moving computer

    Getting a new computer. Need a new Modem

    So I'm getting a new computer this Christmas (yay parents...) but I dont have a wireless connection so I need a new modem. I have searched google everywhere to no avail, and Bellsouth SUCKS with customer support. So I decided to ask you guys. What would you suggest for the best modem for DSL within $20-$40?
