Tip & How-To about Computers & Internet

CHeck your Internet Connection!

Trying to connect to your favorite search engine without success? Okay, maybe you can't check if your "Internet wire" (connection) is broken or not by using a bulb and a couple of batteries. But, you can get a good idea how close you can get to the site you're trying to reach.

  1. Go to the "DOS Prompt" (or the "Command Prompt")
  2. Type "tracert " and press ENTER
    For example, if you're trying to reach www.chamisplace.com, type:

    tracert www.chamisplace.com

    and press ENTER

    Hi, I have been trying to download a driver for my Vivicam 6150s camera but without success. My installation CD is not compatible with windows 7 and the Vivitar website has the driver whiz which I don't need. Any suggestions? Maureen


    Allow Windows 7 to discover the device by plugging in the camera while it is powered up and your computer is up and running. Make sure you are connected to the Internet as well. Windows will connect to the Internet to search for the driver.

    Iam trying to connect my laptop to the innet. i have wrt54g router.


    Hi jjroyc

    Let's see if we can get your laptop connected to the Internet.

    First, I have some questions and a few instructions for you.

    (01) Is this a new (to you) router?

    (02) Do you already have one or more computers connecting successfully to the Internet using this router?

    (03) If yes, are any of them connecting wirelessly?

    (04) Have you recently (at another location for example) successfully connected this laptop to the Internet? If so, did you connect it "wired" or "wirelessly".

    (05) Are you trying to connect your laptop to your router "wirelessly" or "wired"?

    (06) If you are trying to connect the laptop wirelessly, turn off your laptop's wireless radio and connect the laptop to the router "wired" instead (using an "Ethernet Patch Cable"). Once we've established that the laptop is capable of connecting to the Internet via the simpler "wired" connection, then we'll move on to the more complex wireless connection.

    (07) Please, go HERE to download the manual for your particular router. You will need to determine the version number of the WRT54G model 1st. There are instructions there that will guide you through this.
