For your ISP username and password - you need to ask your Internet Service Provider for those information.

Roku connection

Your question is so very non discernible that I may not be answering your question. Please use proper english next time.

In any case, I did find this howto on setting up a Roku player to your computer. I hope this was your question..??

How do set up my Roku player

In closing, I was not trying to come across as condescending. I truly love helping people solve their tech issues. I find it very stimulating and satisfying.

It just makes that process exceedingly difficult when you don't even form a proper english sentence.

After all, who knows if I even answered your question?

Can security issues (firewalls)block internet connection? I couldn't connect and when I turned off my firewall, it worked. However I cannot keep my frewall turned off

Yes it can stop your internet.
First you need to know what program seems to be blocked, for instance, Internet Explorer, Firefox, Google Chrome, Opera, Etc...
Then you need to gain access to your firewall and check to see if there is an exception for that program, and if there isn't, create one.
If your using the built in firewall that comes with windows, you can find the controls for that under the start button, and control panel.
If your using a software firewall, then you will have to work your way around inside the menu system to add the program as an exception.
If you have a literal hardware firewall (a literal box in your homeoffice for instance) or a router from your internet provider, such as cable or dsl, you will have to find the access port and change it.
Access to the port is gained through the browser, and usually is at a port from to, but can be anywhere from 1 to 255. and 1.100 are the 2 most used ports for access.
If there is a password and you don't know it:
If it is your hardware, and not the cable companies or the dsl isp's then you will have to reset it, there is usually a spot on the back (but it can be anywhere) that you push in with a pen and this resets it.
Usually the reset process is done by holding the button in for about 5 seconds, and then while doing this, turning off the unit, sometimes by pulling the power plug out of the back.
If the router or dsl modem is not your hardware:
If this is the case, you should contact your internet provider.
There can be settings that are unique to your isp (internet service provider) and resetting the hardware could render the hardware non functional.

I am trying to resign up for can you please help me????

If you deactivate your account from the "Deactivate Account" section on the Account page, your profile and all information associated with it are immediately made inaccessible to other Facebook users. What this means is that you effectively disappear from the Facebook service. However, if you want to reactivate at some point, we do save your profile information (friends, photos, interests, etc.), and your account will look just the way it did when you deactivated if you decide to reactivate it. Many users deactivate their accounts for temporary reasons and expect their information to be there when they return to the service.

If you do not think you will use Facebook again and would like your account deleted, please keep in mind that you will not be able to reactivate your account or retrieve any of the content or information you have added. If you would like your account permanently deleted with no option for recovery, log in to your account and then submit your request by clicking here.

If you are currently unable to access your account, you will need to reset your password in order to log in. In order to do so, click the "Forgot your password?" link that appears above the field where you would normally enter your password. Once you’ve followed the instructions to reset your password and can log in, you can deactivate or delete your account using the steps outlined above.

Where can i find a replacement sytem has been hacked! Someone was able to hack into all four of my email accts, change settings on them, are sending this information to other...

You are not alone! You do have a serious but fixable issue, contact your ISP or email service providers and alert them to the hack. Unless they can assist you with changing the passwords then you will have to abandon those accounts. You providers can make certain the accounts are deactivated. To ensure removal of any residual code from a hacker, you need to slick and restore the current HDD in your system, if you have a recovery media with the system back up all your personal files you want to keep and use it. Then make certain you have all the patches and updates applied to your machine and consider D/L or purchasing of anit virus software immediately. Also make all your passwords complex, Use Upper and Lower case, numbers and symbols with atleast 12 characters. I suggest also purchasing a USB HDD to use as your private file storage and discoonect it from your system when not in use. NEVER share passwords with anyone! Good Luck

Wireless feature doesn't work.

I think the 2wire router has a separate password setup to configure the wireless access. Go to your ISP provider's website and search Internet Help & Support/ Modems and see if there are not instructions to guide you. If you can't find anything, perhaps this link will lead you in the right direction...

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.

Every time i go onto a server on counter strike source i get this little box that says client timed out and my steam which runs my counter strike source is disconnected

you could have a few issues here, one being your modem, your firewall or your isp speed. Try rating your isp with a speed check, see if your operating where you should be and get back to me.

I dont know haow to connect Linksys Wireless-G Broadband Router with SpeedBooster WRT54GS - wireless router

  1. Connect your modem to the Internet port of the router. Your computer needs to be connected to one of the 4 Ethernet ports at the back of the router.
  2. Access the router's setup page by launching Internet explorer and typing
  3. It will ask for a username and password. Leave the username blank and password is admin.
  4. Once your in the setup page, set "Internet connection type" with what your ISP requires you to have.
  5. If you have cable ISP, usually it is "Automatic Configuration-DHCP."
  6. But if you have DSL ISP, then it will be PPPoE. You need to know your username and password from your ISP.
  7. Better yet, verify your Internet connection type from your Internet service provider.
Hope this helps!
