Ok. In my room, I have a basic dell laptop. 2 usb ports, and standard dial up/ethernet input, but no wireless card.
I need to hook it up to the internet.
I don't care how.
The wireless is contolled by my father who will not allow me to connect that computer to the internet.

I have a phone jack in my room, if that helps

Any ideas, suggestions welcome.

No I'm not a porn addict... I just wanna talk to my girl.

Won't let you connect to the internet? That's a bit harsh. Your best bet would be get a wireless USB dongle (Belkin and Netgear do that kinda thing), and convince your dad to give you the code to the network (if it has one).

Im using the main computer. I want to use the computer in my room. And yeah, there is a code

When my stuff breaks, I hit it until it works.

Did you try hitting your internet, TS?

Grab the internet cable, insert one end in pc, insert other end in the internet.

Tell your dad to go to the store for some excedrin and milk. Then, while he's gone, rip open your walls and run cat 5 cable between your room and the main computer. Now all you have to do is patch before he gets back and you have internet anytime.

Alternatively, just use a telephone.

I got a better idea
if you sit on his computer
try http://192.168.2.1. or http://192.168.2.0.
or tellme which router you have
log in( sometimes the password is written on the router or its 1234 or 0000 if your dad didnt change it)
change wlan password and then you got it

Any you would recomend Toast?



Fuck yes.

SHEdit: TS, I have that router, and you set the code within its software. I doubt you'll find it on the router itself.

You need the password to get into the software, assuming it has one. So short of cracking it, nope. You could get a hella long ethernet cable and connect it to the router, but you'd get caught.

Your best bet is convincing your dad you're a big kid now, and should be allowed to use the Internet on your own lappy, so you can take research projects with you and stuff.

Well, if it was set up using software, I'd guess said software was still on the computer. Get a USB drive, and get a ripping program that works for USB drives. Plus the USB drive in, and bam. It just ripped all the passwords and keys off your dads computer in about 3-5 seconds.
