Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

My brother just gave me this laptop and I don't know how to use the camera?

I also purchased this Samsung 4G hotspot so I can use the internet at work, and a balloon keeps popping up. It says " Internet will perform faster if I use the USB 8 port" I tried all four ports and the balloon still pops up. Where is it located?

Run windows update, located in the control panel that you can access from the start menu. That should update any drivers you will need for the webcam. Once you've updated, return to the control panel and look at the "list view" or "icon view" (you should be seeing a ton of icons with text next to them). Find one that says something similar to "Cameras" or "Imaging device", and it should link to your webcam if it's installed.
The issue with the 4G modem is that your laptop probably doesn't have usb 2.0 ports. All that means is that your 4G modem won't be running at 100%. You can't really upgrade a laptops USB ports from 1.1 to 2.0 though, so there isn't much you can do in that respect. As long as the Modem is powering on and providing a signal, i wouldn't worry about it.

What hotspot app will work with a lg 4g lte that was a verizon but is now straight talk

WHAT DO YOU MEAN BY A "HOTSPOT APP". A hotspot by definition a site where you can get free internet signal. Normally it's a public service.
You don't need any app to get internet signal when you connect your smatphone in a hotspot.
If you have a "liberated" LG 4g lte, you can get service from any cell phone provider, presuming it has legal origin and it's not blacklisted.

Getting on the internet take 15 minutes when using windows 7 and explorer 11, is there a fix?

I'm guessing from the mention of a Samsung Galaxy cell that you're using your phone's mobile hotspot to provide internet access to a notebook or other PC with Windows. If this is incorrect, please provide additional info as to how you're getting internet access.

A number of things can cause slow internet speeds. 1) distance between you and the cell tower, 2) Data technology 3G, 4G etc., 3) method of connection between your cell phone and PC - obviously a direct connection via USB would be best, but a WiFi or BT should do well enough - if - close by, 4) multiple hotspots in close proximity cany make it impossible for your phone to create a hotspot on a clear channel. Experiment a bit and if still no luck, provided more details about your connection.

Videos and pictures are blurry

It seems the video streaming is too slow and the resolution is a result of under scanning facilitation of the buffer. It can't catch up and you have a spacing condition resulting from lag in turn creating poor pixilation.

How do i get my sprint phone to work on wi-fi ?

sprint phone or samsung ?
Sprint offers high-speed WiFi service for existing Nextel customers, and provides an extensive network of hotspots in the United States at locations commonly frequented by business travelers, such as hotels, airports and conference centers.
Getting Sprint WiFi requires a Nextel customer account, connection-management software, a MyNextel user account and a computer that supports high-speed broadband.
Sprint WiFi plans include an unlimited WiFi hotspot and an unlimited PC access plan with a WiFi hotspot package.

Sign up for WiFi service through Nextel by calling 1-800-SPRINT1.
Download and install the Nextel Connection Manager software.
Nextel offers the WiFi version of the connection-management software at the Sprint Nextel website (see Resources).
Register your account via MyNextel on the Sprint Nextel website (see Below).
Samsung Epic 4G Phone into a Wi-Fi Hotspot

The Samsung Epic 4G smart phone allows you to convert your phone into a Wi-Fi hotspot and connect up to five devices.
Such a set-up will keep you from running around searching for an area that offers free Wi-FI. If you're stuck in an airport or staying overnight at a hotel, you won't have to pay extra for Internet service.
You can connect your laptop or other media device to your phone's Wi-Fi network.

Press the "Home" button, which looks like the outline of a house, on the bottom of your Samsung Epic 4G phone.
Click the "Menu" button to the left of the "Home" button.

Click the "Settings" icon, which looks like a gray box with a spoke in the middle.

Scroll through the list and click "Wireless & Networks."

Press "4G" until a check mark appears, indicating the 4G network is enabled.

Click the "Home" button.
The 4G icon will appear to the left of your signal bars in the upper-right corner of your screen.
The separate sets of bars above the 4G logo indicate the strength of your 4G signal.
When the bars above the 4G logo are completely gray and the 4G logo is white, you have a weak signal.
When you are no longer receiving a 4G signal, your 4G logo will be gray and a 3G logo will appear, indicating that the 3G network is now enabled. If both of the logos disappear, you are not receiving any signal.
You must have either a 3G or a 4G signal to use your phone as a Wi-Fi hotspot.

Enable Sprint Hotspot
Press the "Applications" icon, a blue box with four whites squares in it, in the lower-right corner of your Samsung Epic 4G phone.

Press the "Sprint Hotspot" icon, which looks like a phone with two signal bars on the right side, until a check mark appears to the right of the icon, signaling the Spring hotspot function is enabled.
A pass-key allowing you to connect other devices to the phone's network will appear on the screen.
Write the pass-key down.

Enable Wi-Fi on your laptop or other device that you want to tether to your Samsung Epic 4G phone.

Search for the Wi-Fi network affiliated with your Samsung Epic 4G phone.
The name of the network will begin with "SPH-D700XXX."
To change the name of the Wi-Fi network affiliated with your Samsung Epic 4G phone, press the "Menu" button; the "Settings" icon; and "Device Name." Enter the new name for phone's Wi-Fi network.

Click the network affiliated with your Samsung Epic 4G phone on the device you want to tether to your phone'ss Wi-Fii network.
Enter the pass-key, and click "OK."
Your device will now be tethered to the Wi-Fi hotspot on your Samsung Epic 4G phone.

Can a hp pavilion dm4-1160us be used as a hotspot?

nothing in the user manual suggests it can.
laptops don't usually have this feature unless they are 3G/4G enabled. it's more likely that your smartphone could be used as a hotspot so you could access the internet with the laptop connected to the smartphone by wifi

Hi i have a toshiba laptop can u tell me if i have a wireless moderm

In order to answer more specifically, I would need to know the model number, printed on the bottom of the laptop.

However, in general, your laptop should come with a wireless 'card', which allows you to connect to the internet through any 'hotspot' that you know the password to or is unsecured.

However, a wireless 'modem' generally connects through a cellular network, and is a separate device that you need to also purchase a monthly data plan for. Thus, your laptop probably did not come with one.

Hopefully this helps.
