Tesco website is very slow, unusable at present. Tesco claim not to have any issues, all other sites can be accessed without a problem. Is there something specific about this site or could it be settings on my pc?

Most likely it is a problem with their 'server' or it's lack of 'bandwith', either way there's nothing you can do about it but contact their "Webmaster". Although, I just went there myself and didn't see a problem. You can check your internet connection for free at dslreports.com. Just follow their simple instructions.

Sec error expired certificate


This sounds like a "Security Certificate" issue, preventing access to a secured server or website. If that is correct you wil need your security or certificate provider (vendor) to update or re-issue your certificate to allow access to this site. Usually these types of sites are Education, Government, Business-2-Business "Clouds", 3rd Partty Access apps for resellers of IT/Telephony, HR/CRM or financial. A certificate will not be hard to acquire should you have a valid reason.

Hope this helps!

My computer seems to disconnect the internet


Wireless or Hard Wired internet connection ?

When you set up a dial-up Internet service connection on your Windows computer, it comes automatically configured to disconnect itself after a predetermined period of inactivity.


This means that if you walk away from your computer and forget that you're online, your internet connection will automatically shut itself down.


If this feature isn't as helpful as you assumed it would be, you can turn it off using the Network and Sharing Center.

Click "Start."


Click "Control Panel."

Click "Network and Sharing Center."


Click "Change Adapter Settings."


Right-click on your dial-up Internet service icon.

Click "Properties."


Clear the check box next to the "Auto Disconnect" listing on screen.

Click "Apply."


The auto disconnect on your computer Internet service connection is now turned off.


also if its running slow


Slow computers that persistently disconnect from Internet access may have issues with the wireless setup or if on a wired connection, there may be a problem with the Ethernet cable or port.

Troubleshooting connection and speed issues can save money rather than taking the computer to a technician or repair shop.


Additionally, some firewalls and security features can make it difficult to access certain types of websites.


Before spending money to have the computer diagnosed, try running through the most common, basic causes of connection issues.


Consider the type of site you are trying to access.

High-traffic sites such as gaming sites can sometimes be affected by high volumes of users accessing or attempting to access the site at once.


Test this by attempting to access the site at different times during the day and evening; peak hours for games that typically appeal to children may be during the afternoons on weekdays while games for older or more mature audiences will see high traffic at night.


Check your Internet connectivity and determine whether you are using a wired or wireless connection.

In the lower right side of the computer screen there should be an icon displaying the Internet or network connection.


Wireless connections are displayed with connection bars similar to those seen on cell phones while wired connections may show the end of a plug next to a monitor icon.


Reset the router if using a wireless connection.


For most home routers you simply unplug the power cord from the router box, wait a moment and plug it back in.


You may have to restart your computer to reestablish a secure connection.


Access the router through the computer and check for updates. Some routers offer firmware updates that fix some connectivity issues.


While updating the router, check for Internet browser updates as well as any critical updates for your computer's operating system.

Verify the computer uses the most up-to-date version of the Web browser available.


Try a different browser. Internet Explorer is the most commonly used Web browser, but not always the best for every site.


Try downloading another Web browser such as Firefox, Opera, or Google Chrome and test the sites there.


If the connections are still disconnected and the Internet speed seems slow, it may be an Internet issue.


Wired Connections


Trace the Ethernet cable from the Internet modem to the computer if using a wired connection.


Unplug the end of the Ethernet cable and check that the plastic head is secure and that there is a click when you return the plug to the modem; do the same on the computer end.


Inspect the Ethernet cable carefully as it runs from the modem to the computer.

If the cable was tacked down with a staple gun or other attachment, check the cable to verify it wasn't accidentally pierced.


Additionally, check for bends, twists or worn areas along the cable.

Measure the length of the Ethernet cable.


In general, cables longer than 100 feet tend to receive poorer signal transmission.


If the cable is longer than 100 feet, replacing with a higher quality cable or moving the computer or Internet modem may resolve connection issues.



Hope this helps.

Certificate error on web site.


This is basically an Internet Explorer 7 Website’s Security Certificate problem! You have to self-sign the certificate on the client computer or add the URL manually to the trusted security zone. When you are trying to access a secure web page, you receive the warning message:

"There is a problem with this website's security certificate. The security certificate presented by this website was not issued by a trusted certificate authority."

Or

"Security certificate problems may indicate an attempt to fool you or intercept data you send to the server."

To fix this issue, you can follow either of the methods:

Where can i get windows vista driver for my tesco technika wireless mouse?


Below is a link to download Tesco's wireless mouse/keyboard drivers. It's a zip file so it will need to be opened and all files extracted before using. Tesco provides little information as to which what Operating Systems the drivers are for, just bundled them all together. Best of luck.
