Are you saying your computer stops responding while you are on the internet? If you loose your local connection to your network, you loose your connection to the internet. Do you have a wireless connection?

    No offense, but I'm having difficulty understanding your problem. Please be more concise with your wording.

  • TF Nov 01, 2008

    In the early days of DSL, many USB DSL modems distributed by several US ISPs were plagued with connectivity problems. For no reason, the modem would simply loose its connection. The only way to reestablish the connection was to reboot the computer. On the other hand, some internal DSL modems were plagued with driver problems. DSL modems have definitely seen more than their share of quirks.



    Make sure you are using the latest drivers for your modem and operating system. However, I would not recommend updating the firmware without positive confirmation that the firmware is the problem.



    Unfortunately, without a more detailed explaination of your situation, its hard to determine the source of your problem.



    I've looked around the internet, and some people seem to be having problems simliar to yours.



    Here is a link by Swiftinter.net for trouble shooting this modem.

Wireless is connected but internet wont detect connection


For wireless connections:

1. Hold the Windows key and press the R key, type services.msc and press Enter or click OK. This should open a new window - services local.
2. Look for Wireless Zero Configuration on the list in the right pane. The list is alphabetical, so you should be able to locate it maybe third from the bottom.
3. Double-click it to open it.
4. Click on the STOP button to stop it (lower left). If it is not highlighted or is grayed out, then the service is stopped. (it should also say that the SERVICE STATUS is stopped).
5. Look for STARTUP TYPE drop-down menu. Change it from AUTOMATIC to DISABLED. then click on APPLY (lower right).
6. Then just change it right back from disabled to automatic and click on apply again.
7. Click on START button (right beside the STOP button) on the same window to start the service.

--- We are essentially restarting the windows wireless service. What we did just turned it off and on again ---

8. Close the services local window.
9. Go to Start and then Control Panel. Network Connections. If you don't see Wireless Network Connections or Local Area Connection after opening Network Connections, kindly look for Network Connections again (it maybe on the lower right).

--- We need to be on the page where you have the wireless network connections icon. ---

11. Right-click on the icon for Wireless Network Connections then left-click on Properties.
12. You should have several tabs. Click on Wireless Network Connections tab (near the top of the window).
13. Make sure you have a checkmark on where it says, "Use windows to configure your wireless connections..." or something like that.

--- Before going into the next step. Kindly make sure first that you have the following CORRECT information: (1) your own SSID; (2) Network key (if you have one) - WEP or WPA or whichever encryption you are using. If you don't know these information, kindly secure these information first or better yet, try calling your router manufacturer to help you out on this ---

14. Then on the list that shows on the same window, remove everything on the list. That list shows all the wireless networks that you have been connected to before.

--- Don't worry about deleting it. The next time that you connect to the wireless network, it will be automatically added back into this list ---

15. Once everything is removed. Kindly close the window.
16. Go back to where you have the Wireless Network Connections icon again.
17. Right-click again the icon and left-click on View Wireless Network Connections.
18. If your wireless router is broadcasting your SSID, then you should be able to see it on the list of wireless network(s) that will appear on the screen.
19. Select your SSID and hit Connect.
20. It should be asking for your network key. Type it in. In might ask you to confirm the network key. Just type it in again.
21. It will attempt to connect it. And you will get a notification that you are connected.
22. Once you are connected, go back to the window where you have the Wireless Network Connections icon we were working on before.
23. That icon should say that it is connected.
24. Double-click it. It should open a new window.
25. You should have a General tab and a Support tab.
26. General tab should say it is connected.
27. Click on the Support tab.
28. Now confirm if your IP Address says 192.168.x.x. where x can represent any number. Example: 192.168.0.100
29. If you have these confirmed. Kindly try to see if you can now get into the internet or into your network.
30. Enjoy!

let me know if this don;t work for you Blankzero

Starts with disk drive 0 seek failure. hit f1to continue then blue screen with stop: 0X0000007E (0XC0000005, 0X83AF9630, 0X8A6BC7B4, 0X8A6BC4B0) appears. Any help?


I have had this problem and had to reset the CMOS. Simply removing the CMOS battery is not always enough. Shut off your computer and disconnect the power. Then find the CMOS jumper, usually near the battery, and remove it, taking careful note of the pins it connected. Move it to the far pins and wait a few minutes. Then move it back to its original position, plug your computer back in and restart it. You may need your Windows disk to get everything working properly again.

Hi,

Thanks for asking FixYa for help. My name is Jeff and I will be assisting you today. You said that the computer is only 1 month old? It is still under warranty then. Take it back to the store for
refund or exchange. You shouldn't be having this kind of problem with a new computer.

If you are in need of additional help, please let us know.

Thank you for allowing us to help you today.

I have an Acer Aspire (and thats as much as I know) that makes a constant beeping sound ... so fast that I cannot even try to detinguish individual beeps to count them. Sometimes this sound does not happen...


Cardinal Rule 1
Dont use ur expensive computer for Games, go to a galeriya
Cardinal Rule 2
Beeping while playing games is a part of the computer's operation...or it can be part of that game.

Some times ur accessories (like ur printer/USB device/mouse etc) is not connected properly...

if the sound is from the PC's speaker then it can be disabled but u will also not get the games sound.

but if it's from your PC's external speaker then u have to live with it or u can mute ur speakers.

DVD+RW DRIVE STOPPED WORKING


Try rebooting your computer. I have a similar desktop and sometimes after a period of use the drive seems to power down - if I shut down and start up again it seems to work again.

If this doesn't solve the problem, check the connections inside the computer to make sure the drive has the data cable and power cable connected securely.

If you bought the Inspiron 3 days ago, contact Dell for warranty service and a replacement. If you just bought the drive itself 3 days ago, take it back or return it to the retailer you bought it from for a replacement.

Cant connect


Is your internet connection working properly?

The network connection to the internet may have been lost with the restore and needs to be setup again. Contact your local ISP (Internet Service Provider) and have them assist with the details to re-establish your internet connection.
