Make sure the physical connections are correct. Modem connected to the Internet Port of the router and your PC to port number 1 on the Linksys router as well. Try to reset the router. Hold the reset button at the back of the router for about 20 seconds. After that, unplug the power to the router and to the cable modem. Wait for 30 seconds. Plug the modem first, wait for the lights to stop blinking then plug in the router. Check if the internet works fine again.

Gotomeeting drops connections


Voice, video, etc over the internet requires a decent Internet broadband connection. This means if the network your computer(s) is connected to is slow, it will greatly reduce the performance and reliability of services like GoToMeeting.

I've never heard of a driver expiring. Maybe it's missing or has been uninstall-ed - check your device manager for the 'network adapter' to check its' status. You need the network adapter to connect to the Internet.

Lost connection to server


If youre connected online with that game, i think the problem will most likely be on your internet connection,you can check if your internet connection is stable by pinging any website. You can try open up Windows Command Prompt if your using windows and type ping www.yahoo.com.

If youre referring to offline games and connected via network lan, you should check your LAN card if its ok by pinging your Lan address which is 127.0.0.1.

Or if your not connected on Network Lan, then you should try reinstalling the game.

Cherrytree5@bigpond.com--- access to email obstructed.


Sorry you are having this problem,
Sounds to me like your eMail client configuration is incorrect...
Is this a new problem where you were able to send an receive mail no problem before and now this ?
I suspect it is a new set-up.
It looks like you entered your eMail address where the software was asking for the address of the SMTP mail server...
Port 465 is for a secure SMTP Server.
Normally, the SMTP server port is 25 or 26. Have you modified your eMail settings lately ? Or maybe it works well from home but not when you are on another network....
Bigpond has implemented some security on their network, see here:
http://bigpond.custhelp.com/cgi-bin/bigpond.cfg/php/enduser/std_adp.php?p_faqid=5562
So, when you are connected to the bigpond network, you must use their SMTP server:
mail.bigpond.com
Otherwise, it will reject the connection.
When you are away from the bigpond network, you might have to ask your host or whoever, who provides the highspeed internet access ? and then google for their smtp server,
ex: securenet.net smtp server earthlink smtp server

you will quickly and easily find this server and all you have to do is enter it temporarily into your SMTP server field in your eMail client settings making sure to set it back to bigpond once you are back home..
THis should get you back on your way again.

SMCBR24Q problem cannot browse local internet


Consider reconfiguring the router. By now, that router has been set back to factory default due to sudden power interruption or maybe thunderstorms. But that is if the power light is still on and solid. Reconfiguration would mean setting this properly to synchronize with your modem. However if you connect one computer directly to the modem or any main source, and it is not online...then call internet service provider
