Tip & How-To about Kitchen Appliances - Others

I listed some of the things you should check if the internet on your desktop or laptop is not working. Computer connected to the modem 1. Check the cables if its properly connected to the modem 2. check the lights on the modem, if they are all ok. 3. Check if the modem is set on standby mode. MOdem should not be on standby. 4.Power cycle your modem. power off your modem for 3mins, and then turn it on. Wait for the lights to get steady and then check your computer if it has internet access. 5. Call your Internet service provider , it can be a problem with their line. Computer connecting thru the router 1. If its wired check cables. Some user plug the computers to the INTERNET or WAN port. Computers should be on the LAN port . Modem should be plug into the WAN or internet port. 2. Check the lights where you connected the computer. See if the port light is lit up 3. Check your computers ip address. HOw? If your using windows Click start - run - cmd - enter ipconfig - look for ip address. If the ip address is 169.xxx , this is an invalid ip. If your using mac Click apple icon Click on system preferences Go to network and then look for tcp ip address If you get an invalid ip address the solution is either you need to plug the computer to another ethernet port or your router needs to be reset. If its wireless and your getting 169.xxx Theres a possibility that the wireless security on your router and your laptop dont match. Check your wireless security and make sure you enter it correctly. 4. Your router might not be communicating well with the modem. YOu can do the steps above to check if the modem is working properly. 5. if the modem is working. That only means you need to setup your router again to the internet. You can do it using the setup cd that came with your product or you can do it manually by calling your router tech support.

can not connect to the internet

Verify that the modem is working by using another computer to connect to the Internet. You can also check the lights on the modem for proper operation. They normally should be all green and one may be flashing. Once you've verified the modem is working and can connect to the Internet from another computer, check the network settings of the computer - you can locate this in the control panel. If a network is not listed, then check the Device Manager and verify the Network Adapter is installed with its' driver installed correctly.
