How do I set up broadband manualy on a pc(tesco)

    Help I'm trying to reinstall broadband on a friends pc but it won't connect,how can I install it manualy on winxp


    USB modem or router?


    what are you using, a router, modem?

    I think you need a CD from tescos, it should set up from that. HTH.

    This depends on how you are connecting the broad band.
    There are 3 ways that happens.
    1 via a usb modem
    2 via a modem router
    3 via wireless modem router

    Exactly how you manually install depends on which method you use to connect to your ISP.

    If it is via a USB modem, then it is likely that the ISP has provided a Cd with the relevant software on it and it wil be pre-configuered to connect. Put the CD in and follw the prompts!

    If it is via a modem routet, then agin you probably have a cd, but you can also access the router via your web browser if you know the configuring web page address (usually an IP number) Then with the administrator user name and password, you can access the setup page and input any settings specific to your ISP.

    If it is via a wireless connection, then first off you will have to connect the router as per above, then you can setup up the wireless connection lnk.

    All of this will be in the booklet / leaflet that came from the ISP.

    If you do not have any of this information, then you can use a PC with an existing internet connection to visit your ISP's home page and find the relevant information there.

    You'll not need a CD, but you'll need to configure the router with the correct username/password

    I tried that but it doesn't go through I made a new conection through winxp

    plug the router into the ethernet socket on your PC, then open up your browser and go to the URL of the router, it's probably or but it should be in the instruction book you got with the router. it'll ask you for a username and password, these are the tesco ones, but are the defaults for the router. again they'll be in the book but common ones are Admin and password, or root and password, or admin and admin. once you're in there should be some sort of quickstart guide. follow that and you'll be all set up.

    to find the routers IP address: run cmd, type ipconfig/all default gateway or dhcp server should give address of the router.

    i think it might be best to put the settings in manualy so if anyone could give methe tesco settings on a zoom adsl X6 would be great
