Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

While connected on the internet (wireless) if we leave the computer idle for few minutes without touching anything it disconnects, and takes some time before we can reconnect again. The screen saver is not set. What could cause the linksys USB to disconnect when not in use? I have to unplug and replug the USB to get it working again.

It could be a time-out setting that is on the router or a setting inside the computer. It could also be malware that has gotten in and affected certain settings that mess with the internet. Have you noticed any weird things going on with the computer lately?

Do i need to relearn the tps on a 1999 vw jetta


Unhook battery, press brakes to de-power everything. Leave unhooked for half hour or more.

Re-connect the battery. Turn key to on position. Do not start the car... just to on. Don't touch the gas pedal at all. Leave for ~10-20min.

Turn key straight to start and start the car. Do not touch the gas pedal. Let idle for ~10min without touching anything.

Turn off car. Restart, drive. It might take a few heat cycles and a bit of driving before the ECU 'learns' everything over again.

Disconnecting dap 2360


Your wireless network card in your computer is failing, or the cable to the computer is bad. Because you said wireless internet, I am going to assume that you are connected to the internet via wireless nic. If your pc hasn't been rebooted for a while you may want to try a reboot and see if that doesn't fix the issue.
However, if the problem remains you will likely need to get another wireless network card.

I can not connect to the Internet. I have WiFi connection but can't do anything else


Plug your computer/laptop directly into router. Can you get to the Internet then?
If you CANNOT get to the internet when your computer is plugged into the router, reboot your router. If it doesn't have a power switch, unplug it. Leave it unplugged. Next, you need to figure out if you have another modem for DSL or Cable. If you do have another DSL or Cable modem, unplug that device to. After 5 minutes has elapsed for both devices being unpowered, plug in the DSL or Cable modem to the power source. Keep the router unplugged from power. After your DSL or Cable modem has powered up for 5 minutes, plug your router into the power source. Wait a few minutes. Reboot your computer/laptop. Try the wireless connection again.
If you CAN get to the internet when your computer is plugged into the router. Reboot your computer. Try to connect again. If you cannot connect after rebooting, make sure you are connecting to YOUR OWN wireless access point and not someone else's.
Do you have other computers/laptops/wifi devices that CAN/CANNOT connect to your wireless / access the Internet?

Replaced ink cartridge still not working


Please remove all the cartridges, clean the Contact points on the cartridges and on the Printer with alcohol/spirit/acetone using a soft brush, don't touch the print heads, you may damage them.
Turn off the printer, disconnect usb cable, power cord and ethernet cable (if any). Leave it Off for few minutes (fix minutes will be enough), also remove/disconnect the power cord from the mains.
Do some cleaning if you can.
Now press the power button several times. Connect the power cord and power on the Machine without anything installed/connected, again leave it On for few minutes and turn it off.

Connect the usb cable and ethernet cable, Switch on the printer and install the cartridges. If there's no internal problem this will definitely fix your problem.

Good luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.

D-Link DIR 655 - DHCP server but no internet


This usually happens when the router has timed out trying to grab an IP address from your modem.

I suggest unplugging your router and modem, waiting 1 minute, plugging in your modem, wait 1 minute, plug in your router, wait 1 minute, then try to connect again.

If this solution has helped you, please take the time to rate me.

Got wireless signal but no internet connection


You can try to power cycle your entire network (refresh).
This often happens when you have a large network.
  1. power down ALL Computers and disconnect the desktop from the D-Link Switch.
  2. turn off all SLAVE AP's first.
  3. Turn off the Master AP and disconnect one end of the Ethernet.
  4. Turn off the D-Link Switch and disconnect one end of the Ethernet.
  5. Now, turn off your modem.
Leave them for about 10 to 15 minutes, depending on your urgency.
Turn on and connect all devices in the EXACT order.
  1. Turn on the modem. wait 2 minutes.
  2. Turn on the D-Link Switch and wait 1 minute. Then connect the Ethernet to the MODEM.
  3. Turn on the Master AP and wait 1 minute. Then connect the Ethernet to the D-Link Switch.
  4. Turn ONE of the Slave AP's. Turn on your Laptop. try to connect to the Internet. If successful, Disconnect from the network on the computer and proceed to turn on the rest of the Slave AP's, Laptops, and Desktop. If its NOT successful, power on the Desktop and try to connect to the internet.
  • If the desktop connects to the Internet, Check your D-Link's homepage "192.168.1.1" (default) for any wrong settings. If it does not connect, check your DSL Modem's settings.
If the above does not work, post what you did the day before this happened. Probably something small might have messed with the network.

Must boot 2 times to reach internet.


Just a thought...got to Start->Control Panel->Power Options

What are the settings? Is anything shutting down after a short period of time?

When it's disconnected, can you manually reconnect? Have you tried that before rebooting?

What kind of router are you using, have you modified it's settings in any way? I have some other thoughts, but maybe you shoudl answer these questions first.
