If the router has lights, then check your network cables.

The streaks of color in addition to the computer componenets locking up points to an issue with the motherboard. You have ruled out the problem being with your monitor, and if your drivers are up to date and function correctly /before/ the error occurs, then it is not a problem with the driver (almost definitely). The only other thing it could be is a problem with the video card or the communication between the video card and mobo. With the addition of your LAN, mouse, and keyboard not responding, that would point to either two components and your USB (or PS2) ports becoming faulty at the same time (unlikely), or that your motherboard is unable to properly communicate with the devices. I would see what kind of tests you can run on your motherboard and, if possible, contact the manufacturer for more details and about a possible replacement.

Comtrend Are Junk?


Hi,
What do you mean your computer is freezing? If it's the operating system that is freezing then it's highly doubtful that it's the new router which is at fault. If the computer is slow and unresponsive then clear your internet cache, perform a defrag and also check the drive for any errors.

To clear the internet cache right click on internet explorer and select properties from the list. In the general tab where it says browsing history click on delete and follow the on-screen messages.

To perform a defrag click on the start menu then all programs, accessories, system tools and the disk defragmenter.

To check the disk for any errors click on computer, right click on local disk c and select properties, select the tools tab and check the volume for errors. Make sure you check both boxes to fix any errors found and then be patient as it cane take some time to complete.

If the problem is the internet which is freezing then perform a speed test on your internet connection and compare the speed to what your supposed to be getting. You can perform a speed test here >>>>>>

If the speed isn't what it's supposed to be then of course get your own router.
I do recommend Netgear myself as i will only have them routers for my own personal use.

Internet Not Responding


Sounds like your best bet is to go back to Windows update and let them run all the way through before starting any further actions. Your daughters computer was fine because it did not require the same updates.

try re booting your computer in safe mode and let it repair everything - if that doesnt work do a system restore --NOT -- it usually resets your browser- also look for a little button on the back of your router for the internt there should be a small hole there -- it is the reset button press and hold using a pencil for 15 seconds then unplug it and let it sit for 5 minutes -- then plug it back in to power and wait until the internet signal lights on the front of your router are set then try it again- also make sure you have your default browser set towhatever net you use i set mine to msn.com - real simple it takes you to explorer good luck - let me know if any of that works -- i would really advise you try resetting the router first though

HI,

Thanks for responding. To me, my router was running before at 100 mps. I took a better look and someone, somehow has tapped into my computer. My computer tends to stop working in browsers and I keep getting notifications to block access. My own router is showing, however I cannot access it. I will have to refresh my network, and reenter my own network and get that creep off my system.

Thanks for your help.

I have a refurbished Gateway T-1625 notebook that up until now has worked fine. However, a few days ago the wireless capability just stopped working. Now, when I try to connect via wireless, it says there...


If your laptop is not "on range" this problably respond to:

1) Interference problem or bad signal.
2) Bad hardware devices (cards, routers etc)

Check your wireless router (turn it off in a while and see what happen)
Check your wireless card adaptor in your computer (My PC >> right click Properties >> Hardware >> Device Manager >> Network)

Let me know how it is going!

Please don't forget to rate my help!
Thank you for using FIXYA!
Have a great day!

My computer keeps telling me I do not have an internet connection when I connect my router. I can unplugg the router and plug it back into my dsl modem and the internet again works. why won't my router...


More info would be helpful, but I am assuming that you have a router device that is not the DSL Modem, maybe a linksys, or something? Most likely what is happening is that the DSL modem is assigning private IP addresses, like 192.168.1.x, and the router is obtaining that IP address on its WAN interface, but is also configured for the LAN at 192.168.1.x, which is the same subnet, so it cannot route packets to the internet properly, as both interfaces have the same network range. Can you give me more info? I can try to walk you thru step by step.
Step 1. Verify current IP address when internet connection is working. (Go to a command prompt and type ipconfig, press enter, and document what your IP address is, also document the gateway address and subnet mask)
Step 2. Connect to the router instead of the DSL modem, do the same thing, document your IP address, gateway, and subnet mask
Step 3. Compare the two, your IP may be different, and the gateway may even be different, but see if both are trying to use the same IP range.

If they are the same, or close (the first 3 octets(set of numbers) are the same) then you will need to configure the lan side of either your DSL modem, or the router to be on a different IP address.

To do this will vary depending on the model of your router, so if you respond in the next few hours, I will still be online, and will try to assist.

Connecting Wireless Modem to Laptop.


Firstly, you need to connect your router to a broadband activated phoneline. On the back of your router there is a socket which should say Phone Line and I believe it is at the top.
This will then radiate a radio broadband signal.

Next, you need to be able to link your computer(s) to your router. There are basically four ways of doing this.

1) ETHERNET - You can connect from the ethernet socket on your computer to the ethernet socket on your router. If you have an ethernet socket on your computer, this is the simplest connection but not always the most convenient. If you don't have an ethernet socket on your computer you will not be able to use the yellow cable.

2) USB - You can connect from the USB socket on the router to a USB socket on your computer. You will need to install USB drivers to do this, but it's not difficult.

3) WIRELESS - You can use a Wireless LAN Adaptor. This can either be a card, built in to your computer or an external USB linked wireless adaptor plugged into an available UBS socket on your computer. These are trickier to set up but you have the freedom to connect to the internet from anywhere within radio range of your router and without wires. Some computers have wireless network adaptors built in already, especially laptops. You can find out by doing the following:
Start\Programs\Accessories\Communications\Newtork Connections - check to see if any of the connections say 'wireless' If they do you're in luck.

4) HPNA - You could use a Home PNA Adaptor (HPNA). This allows you to connect to your router from a different room by plugging into a phone socket through through the HPNA. These can be a little unreliable and do suffere sometimes with interference.

As soon as you have connected to the router, you need to connect to the router's Gateway or control panel. This allows you to set a WEP security code for your network and stops your neighbour or anyone else from connecting to your network. If you use a wireless LAN you will have to set this up with your security code.

To prevent hash intereference to your phone, you need to use microfilters on each phone in your house. Usually a couple of filters will be included with your router, and you can easily purchase more, if you have phones all over your house.

Please find the guide for your router at the link below.
http://www.2wire.com/pages/pdfs/1000_series_Gateway_Install_Guide.pdf

You can also download software and drivers from http://www.2wire.com
Just go to the support page and look for your particular model

Hope this helps....
