Question about PC Desktops

1 Answer

I have laptop with XP PRO and have AOL as my main source of internet in the UK. I am currently in Cyprus and the hotel has provided me with Username and password to access their internet.My wireless broadcom make good strong connection, however as I am not provided with a WEP key, I am informed that I need to click on internet explorer and will then be asked for Username and password. Internet explorer does not open, is this because AOL is my main source of internet exploring?. However it worth pointing out in my office in Cyprus, Internet explorer and AOL work perfectly. Any suggestions or explanation

    Sorry for the delay broadband access still very limited, I was unable to perform the instructions provided as my computer tells me it is using explorere as default, but does not provide me the option to change as this section is greyed out. However my real problem is how do I connect to internet in my hotel with a password and username, should this be entered on the explorer page, because if that is the case I am not getting this page to open up in my Hotel. Again as mentined earlier it all works great at work, but not in Hotel ?

Sometimes other programs, such as Firefox and AOL, can accidentally be set to your default internet browser. This is how to change it back to Internet Explorer on Windows XP.
[edit] Steps

  1. Open Internet Explorer
  2. Go to Tools > Internet Options
  3. Click to the Programs tab
  4. Click Reset Web Settings
  5. When the pop-up menu comes up, select Yes.
  6. Another method that does reset all your other options:
  7. Open Control Panel and double-click Internet Options.
  8. Click the Programs tab.
  9. Click to select the Internet Explorer should check to see whether it is the default browser check box.
  10. Click OK.
  11. Start Internet Explorer and when you are prompted to make it the default browser, click Yes.

How do I change from aol to bt internet


BT Infinity and BT Broadband

I think this might be what you are refering to. BT is an Internet Service Provider (ISP). AOL is a digital media service. (meaning they don't provide Internet, they offer things like Email, Instant Messaging, etc.)

Which company do you recieve your Internet from currently? (someone like Comcast, Time Warner, etc.)

Reset aol password


AOL is a massive American internet service and multimedia company. One of the main services that AOL provides for its users is access to a user-friendly email server. This server can be used to send and receive emails to other accounts around the world. However, just like your keys, your wallet and the remote, passwords to email addresses can easily be lost. When this happens, you can go onto the Internet service and retrieve your lost AOL password without having the change it.

Go to aol.com. Find the login box on the main page. Click on the "forgot password" link, which is underneath the login box. Type in the user information that you do know. This will be your current email address as well as your name as it appears on the AOL billing information. Type in the last four digits of your billing credit card for further verification. Click on the "next" button at the bottom of the screen. Enter an alternative email address where you can retrieve your password. Press "submit." Retrieve your AOL password from the alternate email address you entered. How to Change an AOL Password

My laptop will connect with the internet though a home router. At a hotel or airport it will not connect with the internet service provided by these places. What is wrong


More information needed:
Does your laptop have a wireless adapter?
How do you connect at home? (wireles or ethernet cable?)
What brand of laptop do you have?
What troubleshooting steps have you already taken?

For your information, when away from your home network, you must change your wireless settings to point to the hotel or airport provider where you are trying to connect.

Usually hotels have some contact information and some basic support (some better than others) for their wireless connections.

it should ask you for a username and password since your trying to access a secure server. if you had been provided with a username and password when you had bought the product then use it.
