Why the computer stallswhen playing pogo games? I cleared history, cookies and temporary files before I start to play but it still stalls and sometimes boots me off the game.


That most likely will be your server, or Pogo's server lagging. Nothing you can do about it, except try to play when there is less traffic. I have this problem with Yahoo games, occasionally, and it's just plain server lag either provider or yahoo server. When they update the servers and add some, it's usually good to go for awhile, but the internet's just like the highways- all about traffic.
I guess it could be something else- maybe you need to defrag your harddrive if you haven't done that in awhile. I would do that, anyway, it never hurts.

Bad Fan... either the CPU Fan or the Power Supply Fan or the Case Fan. If the PC is older than 4 years it is probably the Power Supply.

My modem sometimes work and sometime show only two lights i.e. power and ethernet and do not connect to my dsl internet


Do you know if you have line issues with your phone company? If you're at the outer edges of DSL range from the Central Office, your connection might be dropping. The fact that the power and ethernet lights stay lit shows that the connection might not be on your end. Does the connection get reestablished when you reboot the modem? You may have to get your provider to do connectivity tests on your line.

I have been confused about my internet connection lately. My ISP is Qwest DSL and I have friends that have the exact same connection as I do. Now when I'm trying to play an online game using a wired...


when you are playing with a friend and they are hosting it, it can be their connection that is causing the lag, the same goes if you host and they experience lag, the wireless and wired connection will be the same internet speed, but with wireless the data is transfered at 54MBPS over from the router to your xbox, but wired transfers at 100MBPS, the internet speed is always the same with both.

There are other factors which can cause lagging, one of which depends on the amount of people surfing using your ISP at the same time and sharing your line bandwith.

My linksys BEFSR ver.3.1 S/N C2140DA22073, constantly drops my internet cinnection after a few minutes of none activity.


Do you use DSL for your connection?

DSL uses a phone line for the connection, and therefore if your ISP doesn't detect activity after a few minutes, it will drop the line. There is a setting called "keep alive" in your router which will automatically either redial or 'ping' your ISP to make sure this doesn't happen. It's in the basic setup screen; if you're using DSL enable it and set it to 1 minute.

Emachine W3107, DSL won't connect


Hate to tell you this but . . . Turning off your computer isn't much help if you have a stike on phone or power lines not too distant from home.
Even many supposed surge suppressors aren't worth much for protecting electronics.
If you are in a lightning prone area, I would highly recommend the installation of a 'whole house protector' which is installed at your main breaker box.
The cost is typically <$300 US and they come with insurance for (mostly) $25,000 replacement cost.

Unless you go that route, I strongly suggest you actually UNPLUG your system and any other electronic items you value when you get the first rumbles - even then perhaps too late.

With the various failures you describe, I suspect your 'southbridge' chip on the system board is damaged. If this is the case, the board will need to be replaced at a minimum.
After that, you still don't know if memory, drives, keyboard etc. will be functional.

For a description of the typical internal PC layout, look at this:

Try contacting the DSL provider, if not All-Operatingsystems-Lost.
U may try Start-controlpanel-network connections-local area connection-properties
Ensure correct card under connect using.
click on configure.
click on advanced.
reset to auto detect
click ok
reboot
There are sometimes issues with the PPPOE. the DSL provider should be able to resolve this.
Good Surfing

Got a 3347 modem from Netopia and ATT/sbc. We have a sonicwall tz170. We have bridged the netopia, but We cannot get out to the internet. We cannot take the sonicwall out of the loop, because the HP...


Hello sir,

I didn't necessarily need to enable QoS when I was on 3 meg, but now that I've downgraded back to 1.5 once again due to financial strain (and since I'm not at home that much anymore), it's critical that I find a way to properly enable QoS. Why? My sister is here on the weekends, and so am I. An example of the connection stress I have to go through is when she's streaming a video from Stage6 or Veoh, I have to undergo lag whether I'm viewing a web page or watching a Youtube video. Sometimes, the lag is ridiculous...and for those who think my DSL is at fault, check out the stats:

ADSL Line State: Up
ADSL Startup Attempts: 1
ADSL Modulation: ADSL2+
ADSL Data Path: Interleave
Datapump Version: DSP 5.2.2.0, HAL 5.2.2.0
Downstream Upstream
---------- ----------
SNR Margin: 19.00 26.00 dB
Line Attenuation: 58.50 39.00 dB
Output Power: 20.97 11.83 dB
Errored Seconds: 0 0
Loss of Signal: 0 0
Loss of Frame: 0 0
CRC Errors: 0 0
Data Rate: 1493 249

(On a fast path profile too, mind you; it is not interleaved according to the 11 ms 2nd hop on a tracert)

Anyway, back on QoS, if I could just find a way to limit the bandwidth to my sisters computer or to make my connection the higher priority of the two, I would be fine with just that, because sometimes, I can't even break past 30 kb/sec with her hogging the connection. The question is, how do I go about doing it? emotionless.gif

Hmm..

Anyway...I'm really at a loss here, and I'm assuming this is the screen where I can add QoS profiles. Upon clicking add (or edit), I am transferred to this screen..

2qticqw.jpg

This is how I've attempted to setup a QoS profile to prioritize my connection (the inside, network IP address typed above). I'm not sure if it will work or not and I will have no idea until my sister comes over here this weekend. The point is, I just want to be ready and not have to reconfigure and reboot my modem constantly to set up QoS properly.

If anyone, and I mean ANYONE could offer me some insight on properly configuring my router to properly prioritize my connection over hers (even if it's just port 80; I don't care), I would much appreciate it.

I apologize for the rather...lengthy post.


Good Luck
