It's usually like that since you're still connected, that's the sound of handshaking, your computer is getting and receiving data.

you might want to get a dsl to avoid this.

its not to hard if you have a physical ethernet cord from point A to point B

Modem/Router ---ethernet cable--> 2nd router with dhcp off

as a bonus if you use the EXACT same SSID and password your wireless device will rome with no downtime switching networks
(oh.. very important to make certain they don't have the same IP. if main 1 is 192.168.1.1 then set the second to 192.168.1.2)

ta-da twice the network but all your devices think its all one

Tip

SETTING UP A BROADBAND CONNECTION


First you need to decide what type of broadband service you require and these are -
1. DSL that uses your existing telephone line.
2. Cable that uses a cable service and can include a cable TV service.
3. A wireless USB adapter connects to a 3G network mobile/cell phone network and can be a separate or combined with your cell phone account.


Note - Any combined phone services (fixed line or wireless) with Internet connection generally offer discount pricing and may include a wireless adapter or modem/wireless router
.

If you use a wireless router with the DSL or Cable Internet service and your laptop has a wireless card then you can also connect to the Internet at WiFi hot spots like McDonalds, Star Bucks, the Airport etc.


If you use the wireless 3G wireless broadband service, then you can access the Internet anywhere where your ISP has 3G wireless coverage. You need to check the service coverage area where you need Internet service.
The advantage of using a USB wireless adapter is, you can plug it into any conputer/laptop's USB port and get Internet connection.

Once you decide what type of broadband your require, then you need to check with the various Internet Service providers to see if they can offer and thecost of the various plans.
Note the maximum download limits and the associated additional costs if you exceed the monthly download limits.


Once you sign up with a Internet Service provider, their documentation will include setting up instructions and/o rinstallation CD.

Internet works ok with usb on modem but wii not work with ethernet.cable has been checked ok. ISP has cheched modem ok over the phone. Packard-bell computer. Where do I go from here?


Your problem has to be at the firewall settings. Locate the local area network and enable Internet Explore to get through this connection. In case you are not sure, just try to disable the Windows Firewall and use Internet Explorer. The connection has to be fine. After that make all the neccessary settings at the firewall.

In case of a problem or clarification, don't hesitate to post me a reply.

if your desktop is connected using wireless then it maybe a fault of the adapter.
try conencting your desktop with an ethernet cable directly from the pc to the modem.
also check to see if your pc is under a metal office, or there is wireless telephone near by.

How to get Emails from other computers I want to take my new Mac. with me on vacation. How do I get to see the messages on my other computer at home


One "partial" solution is to use your "home" Internet Service Provider's "Web Mail" service.

For example, try 'webmail.verizon.net' or 'webmail.roadrunner.com'.

You'll be able to access all the "new" E-mail that arrives while you are "away" from your "home" computer, but none of the E-mail that was stored on your "home" computer _before_ you went away.

The other solution is to use the "Remote Desktop Protocol" to "logically" connect your Mac's keyboard & mouse & screen, over the Internet, to your "home" computer, rather than using the "physically-connected" keyboard & mouse & screen.

You would have to:
1. leave your "home" computer powered-on all the time that you're away;
2. either connect your home-computer directly to your cable-modem or DSL-modem, or to use "port-forwarding" on any router that is "between" your home computer(s) and your modem, to direct all "Remote Desktop" connection-attempts to one specific computer on your home network.
3. be "security-conscious" -- exposing your computer to "accept" a Remote Desktop connection means that any computer-hacker will try to login with your ID & password to your computer, over the Internet.
4. have a "Remote Desktop Protocol" client piece of software on your Mac.

I have an acer aspire 6930 what are the steps to connect to wireless internet I have a wireless moden but have to keep the ethernet phone cord plugged in to browse the net please help


all you have to do is, take the wireless modem and check if there ports at the back for connecting the ethernet to the modem(mostly it will be there).you can refer the manual of the wireless modem to connect the modem to your acer(i.e the connections of cables)in a step by step process.i am telling this since you have not specified your modem's manfacturer and model no. you have to the install the software from the installation cd of the modem in your laptop.
the defaualt connection will be to connect the phone's ethernet cord to the main input of the modem(if you are using the phone for internet). and the power adapter in the nearby small slot.

Internet Explorer is not conecting


You may have a modem or router problem, not problems in your computer. Try resetting your modem and router (if you have one). Turn off power, wait about a minute, then turn them back on. Sometimes that is all that is needed.

If you have a router connected to the modem, eliminate that by connecting your computer directly to the modem's network jack. If you can connect then, you know you need to replace the router.

Try another computer if you still can't connect when running directly to the modem. (You should be able to find someone with a laptop who can try for you.) Connection failure then can only mean the modem is bad. In many cases a bad modem will be replaced by your service provider.

It is also possible you managed to get a virus or worm into your computer at some point, and that has broken the networking function in Windows. You could try using System Restore to take the computer back to an earlier time when you were able to connect. If the trouble is due to malicious software, though, System Restore may not be available. Some bad software disables that so you can't use it.
