Hi,

My computer is connected to the modem.

Expert:  Viet - Computer Tech replied 1 year ago.
That means the computer is not wireless. Can you please check at the back of the Cisco 105+ to see if there is any other model, such as Cisco 105+? Do you see anything else any other number/character like serial number, etc.?
And/or if you'd like to, I can connect remotely to your computer, so I can retrieve your modem's Wi-Fi / wireless directly through your computer together with you. Please reply at the box below. Thank you.
