Tip & How-To about Computers & Internet
Once you have an Internet Service Provider ,ISP,
you just need a modem and phone line access,
plug modem into phone socket and then into the computer,
My example modem is.........
Speed Touch 5x6v6 - Broadband Modem
Operating System is Windows 7
log on to the modem using Internet Explorer Bar
this will open the modems log on menu
then enter user name and password
its factory default is
password ADMIN or 1234
once open there are some menu options on the main page
to add new user and password,
go to toolbox,
add new user
add password,(write down username and password)
change default user
save and test
should have a green tick next to new default user now
selecting broadband ... shows both your,
dsl connection and internet connection status,
with a green tick next to each heading.
Home network will show you...
all devices connected to this modems network ie
the other computers and printers etc,
connected on your network.
In network ,select your computer in the menu tree,
this give you a menu to add info about your computer
ie name info, comupters ip address,
access to the local intranet or the internet
Now lets connect to the internet
select Broadband from front page
menu will open and display
DSL & Internet Connections
here we test internet functionality.on? or off?
Now we go to your computer,
go to start
my network connections
run wizard in my network places
select new connection
follow prompts to the end.
open internet explorer
if web page opens then we are done and finished,
open tools and internet options,
connections and then lan settings
select automatically detect
Apply then close
Test webpage again,
when ok shut down and restart,
to save the computers new settings ,
Test again with internet explorrer.
if no connections run wizard again,
Hope this Helps,Cheers Misterdj
