When I first googled Samsung V25 Laptop device driver download, I got a link to Samsung Europe (http://www.samsungpc...rteddrivers.htm). Is that where you are?

Did you get the drivers installed? If you look in Device Manager, do you have any yellow ? on any of the network adapters on that laptop?

Is the IP address assigned to your laptop in the same range as the one assigned to the other computer?

Thanks for your patience.

1. What make and model is your hub.

2. Please provide the IP address on your laptop and your other computer that can access the internet. Or please take screen print of the IPCONFIG for both and post so we can compare.

3. Please confirm on the laptop that the wireless card is not disabled or in any other way showing issues in Device Manager.

4. Confirm the operating system for the laptop and other computer. If XP, Home or Pro? SP2? You can find this information by right clicking My Computer, General tab.

5. Confirm you have reset the hub and modem with both computers powered off, then powered both computers back on.
