    Thanks, sybabe. This pc is a laptop using vista, having this web cam built in. Went to My Comoputer, as suggested, but could find no help here, either. As you, cannot find manual. Please, what should be done?

    Thank you, again!

    Thanks for your help, sybabe. Went to the store where this Gateway was purchased, asked for a manual. The man here said manuals are now built-in; not on paper, but on line. Whew, what a hassle! This will take more time, but this is what it will take. Thank you, again, no matter.

I am shooting in the dark here, but seeing how I cannot find the manual to this notebook, and guessing you are using Windows 2000/XP, Go to the My Computer icon, double-click on your harddrive, search for program files. In there should be the name of your webcam software (indicated by some sort of webcamish name). I hope this helps.

    Ok, let's try going to the Start menu, Programs, and Accessories. Or Programs, and check the list of programs you have available and look for the webcam software.

    Hi, I'm sorry if I said anything inappropriate. I'm not sure what it is, but could you do this for me: Go to the STart menu, Programs, and give me a list of all the programs available.

    Do the in the Accessories folder.

    One thing I could think of doing if you are in a hurry, is to go to the Gateway website, and look for your webcam driver there. Look under your specific notebook, and it should give you options for support and download. I hope this helped a little more!

Cannot link vpn. direct from internet provider works. when try connection via d-link dir625 does not connect. does allow internet access

Ok to Setup you VPN follow the instructions below. You can configure DI-804HV, DI-808HV, and DI-824VUP+ by web management interface. Type (The LAN IP is by default) in the browser, and then input user name: admin (there is no password by default) to pass authentication of web management interface. Then finish the configurations as showed below on Gateway A and Gateway B. Configurations of Gateway A 􀂾 Model: DI-804HV (DI-808HV, or DI-824VUP+) 􀂾 Firmware version: v1.40 (You can download the latest firmware on D-Link’s website.) 􀂾 WAN IP Address: (Static IP) 􀂾 LAN IP Address: (Subnet Mask: 􀂾 VPN Configurations: 􀂄 Enable VPN function on Gateway A. 􀂄 Tunnel Name: toGatewayB 􀂄 VPN Method: IKE (Main mode) 􀂄 Local Subnet: 􀂄 Local Netmask: 􀂄 Remote Subnet: 􀂄 Remote Netmask: 􀂄 Remote Gateway: 􀂄 Pre-share Key: hr5xb8416aa9r6 􀂄 IKE Proposal (Please remember to add the correct proposal ID into the list of IKE Proposal Index when you finish inputting the following information.) 􀀹 Proposal Name: toGatewayB 􀀹 DH Group: Group 2 􀀹 Encryption Algorithm: 3DES 􀀹 Authentication Algorithm: SHA1 􀀹 Life Time: 28800 􀀹 Life Time Unit: Second 􀂄 IPSec Proposal (Please remember to add the correct proposal ID into the list of IKE Proposal Index when you finish inputting the following information.) 􀀹 Proposal Name: toGatewayB 􀀹 DH Group: Group 2 􀀹 Encapsulation Protocol: ESP 􀀹 Encryption Algorithm: 3DES 􀀹 Authentication Algorithm: SHA1 􀀹 Life Time: 3600 􀀹 Life Time Unit: Second 4. Verify the VPN connection Before you start to establish VPN connection between Gateway A and Gateway B, please make sure the Internet connection between Gateway A and Gateway B is workable. You can use “Ping Test” tool on Gateway A (or Gateway B), and input the IP address of Gateway B (or Gateway A) to see if there is any response from its peer device. Connect a PC (called PC_A) to the LAN port of Gateway A, and connect another PC (called PC_B) to the LAN port of Gateway B. Start to “Ping” PC_B on PC_A, then Gateway A will start to establish IPSec connection with Gateway B. If you can get “Ping” responses from PC_B on PC_A, then it means the tunnel has been established successfully. You can also check the “VPN Status” page with web management interface to verify the status of VPN connections. Figure 1: VPN status of Gateway A after IPSec connection has been established. Figure 2: VPN status of Gateway B after IPSec connection has been established.
Hope this helps
