So, the laptop as I pointed out is new. Purchased 12-15-2010. On 12/16/2010 I went out an bought a virgin mobile broadband device:ovaction .. This broad-band was NOT complatible w/ o/s
for window 7. It listed windows xp and mac os system, etc. etc. But I did not pay attention to that small printed info that appeared on the broadband packaging at the point of purchase. One reason was,the clerks, prior to me purchasing that device, said they were sure that this device would work. I found out after I got home and could not find a proper-easy way to connect to the internet.When installing it in the usb port on my laptop, this device was not registering as the instruction on the products packing, indicated, so I knew something was totally inproper! So, yes I had to make another trip back & get my money back....
Its the 19th now, and I still need to know beside ordering home internet service from a ISP carrier, what is the simpliest way for me to connect to the internet? I never tried the:USB data cable to the cell phone method. All I like to know is the simpliest approach to use when addressing access to the internet from your home? I AM hoping that someone can tell me what to do and how. Remember the question before the us is not a desktop issue. It is a new-laptop w/a built in wifi etc. etc.
Also, before I bought that broadband device, I made several attempts at my home thinking that because I have wifi and all, I should get connect, w/out a broadb... device, but what happened there was a small list of people who had internet connection, and when I tried to connect under their location, the popup asked: for a secuity key #. And since I had no security key to give, to offer, I WAS NOT INTERNET CONNECTED. What is my best way, easiet way, AND the least expensive way for me to connect, a way in which I can connect-day after day, when I like, on my laptop? Please explain here at the forum or you can reach me removed personal contact info.
