There are two ways to connect your laptop to your modem to access network. One is through cable and the other is through WiFi. I don’t think Bluetooth will work in this place. So let’s start with the first way.

First, check whether tour modem has additional network ports. Almost all the modems have it.

If you have port then got a network connectivity cable and connect your laptop to the modem. That's it, you got your network connection done. Just enable disable network connection in your laptop.

The second way is to check whether your modem has WiFi support.

If you have so, just enable WiFi network IP from you first computer i.e. and change a few settings according where it asks. Enable your laptop WiFi.

You can connect that network now.

You have to follow these 7 steps to overcome your problem.

Step 1: Sharing and Discovery should be enabled. For this you have made the following selections.

Go to control Panel > Network and sharing center > Sharing and Discovery, enable network discovery, and file sharing.

Step 2: LAN Card should be installed which is connected to another system you want to communicate.

Control Panel > Network Connections.

Step 3: Go to the properties of Local area connections.

Step 4: Click the internet protocol version 4 in properties of networking.

Step 6: In other computer you just change the IP to with the same subnet mask.

The following steps are applicable to any Windows platforms.

The dialog boxes are all the same as well as the options:

Network and Sharing Center
  • Go to Start and select Control Panel.
  • Click on Network and Sharing Center. If you’re in a “Classic View” (there is an option located in the upper left pane of the window which enables you to change your window layout), you will see a set of options in the left panel.
  • Choose Manage Network Connections. Another window will open which will show the list of network cards available on your computer.
  • Check that your Ethernet cable is plugged and the connection to your main source (computer A) is working. Right click on “Local Area Connection” – Properties – Sharing from the options.
  • Under “Sharing”, check the box “Allow other network users to connect through this computer’s internet connection” and uncheck the other box “Allow other network users to control or disable the shared Internet connection”. Click OK.
  • Exit Network Connections window and goes Network and Sharing Center – Setup a connection or network.
  • In Setup a connection or network, you will find a list of networks you may opt to set up. Click on the option “Set up a wireless ad hoc computer to computer network. Setup a temporary network for sharing files or an Internet connection”.
  • A window will appear. You may want to read its content but basically it only explains the network you’re setting up. Click Next till you reach some sort of a fill up form. Type the name you want for your Network. Basically you can type anything you want as long as you are able to recognize it. In Security Type, select WEP then type your preferred password. I suggest that you check the “Display Character” box for you to identify the password you are typing. Check again another box “Save this network”.
  • Click on Next to finish the setup. You should be able to notice a wireless signal on the other computer. When connecting, you will be required to enter a user name (the one you typed on the Network name option) and a password. Now you are able to browse at the next.

An operating system that supports wireless networking The Windows 7 operating system fully supports wireless networking. For Windows Vista users, I recommend installing Windows Vista Service Pack 2 before setting up your wireless network. For Windows XP users, I recommend installing Windows XP Service Pack 3. 

Use Windows Update to check whether you need the service pack and to install it. Click the Start button, click All Programs, Click Windows Update, and then click Check for updates.

Although the service packs for Windows Vista and Windows XP are not required for wireless networking, they can make things much easier and can help protect you against cyberpunk, worms, and other Internet intruders. The router converts the signals coming across your Internet connection into a wireless broadcast, sort of like a cordless phone base station.

Newer DSL and cable modems come with integrated wireless networking capability and are called modem routers. If the modem router you received or purchased from your ISP already has wireless capability built in, you do not need to purchase a separate wireless router.

Just follow the instructions provided by your ISP for activating your
 Wireless connection. If you do need to purchase a wireless router, be sure that you buy a wireless router and not a wireless access point.

The Linksys router is a popular router for wireless networks because it’s simple to set up. While you're looking for a wireless router or other wireless equipment in stores or on the Internet, you might notice that you can choose equipment that supports four different wireless networking technologies: 802.11a, 802.11b, 802.11g, and 802.11n.
We recommend 802.11g (Wireless-G) or 802.11n (Wireless-N) because they offer excellent performance and are compatible with almost everything.

NOTE: If you do not want to buy a wireless router or if you want to connect computers or devices temporarily for a specific purpose, like sharing devices or games, you can set up a temporary wireless network without a router. This is called an ad hoc network.
