How can I get my past history


Internet History on a Computer
Web browsers keep an internal record of the websites you visit.
This history also called a cache makes future access of websites easier because some of the data is already loaded in your computer.
Internet history is also useful to look through when you cannot remember the name of an important website you visited.
The creators of the big three Web browsers as of the time of publication Internet Explorer, Firefox and Chrome make viewing your browsing history simple.

Open an Internet Explorer window.
Press "Ctrl" and "H," or click the star to the left of the browser tabs and press "History."

Click on the day, week or month you wish to view. Internet Explorer will keep your Web history until you clear the cache.

Mozilla Firefox

Open Firefox.


Click the "History" drop-down menu.


Select "Show All History."


Locate the day, week or month of the Firefox history you wish to view.
The dialog box will show all history since you last cleared your "History" cache.

Google Chrome

Open a Google Chrome browser.


Click the wrench icon located on the toolbar.


Click "History."
Google Chrome will display all of the websites you have visited within the past 10 weeks. However, websites you viewed in "Incognito" mode or secure pages will not be displayed.

How to confirm that the BSNL modem is having problem & cannot be used any more if INET light is continuously blinking?


There are several lights on your modem/router. Each one has a function and signals whether it is working correctly by the color it is displaying and a few other factors.

All of the lights on your modem/router should be green and solid - EXCEPT for 2 which are for your internet and wireless services. Blinking means activity. If you INET light is continuously blinking that means its healthy. Blinking means activity. The internet always has activity. The blinking does not signal your activity - it signals the traffic and connection on the internet. Your wireless connection also has a light which should show activity and availability. A blinking light on your wireless connection means that either someone is connected wireless and using the internet or that the connection is up and available for wireless access.

All of your lights should be green. If you see a red or yellow light - regardless of whether it is flashing or not - it means that there is trouble or problems that need to be corrected.

Each light is marked with its function. They should say things like "power", "link", Internet or INET, and "wireless". When you turn on the modem/router during your first set up, let it power up and finish its testing before connecting your pc and turning it on. The modem will test each light, make them all go from red/yellow to green - then make them all turn solid green (not in that exact order) and this is all normal. You will know when it is done when all lights are solid green and stop blinking and/or moving (except the INET & wireless lights which will be constantly blinking). When all lights other then those two are green and steady - then its time to connect the cable to your pc and power it up.

If you are having problems with your internet connection - you can rule out the cause being your modem/router by following the instructions above. When you rule out that the modem/router is not the cause, you can continue by checking your PC.

For a wired connection (wired meaning that you are connecting your computer to the internet by using a cord/cable) the first thing you want to do is make sure that the computer is automatically sensing the connection.

Your computer should automatically sense that there is a live internet connection when you connect the ethernet cord from the modem/router to the pc. When its working right, the computer will display a connection picture which is called an "icon" on the bottom right side of your screen near the clock area. Sometimes there is a downward arrow by the clock which needs to be clicked on to expland this area and show all icons for running programs. If you see a downward pointing arrow by your clock on the bottom right side of your screen, click on the arrow.

Test that it is sensing the internet connection by unplugging the ethernet cable from your pc and watch the bottom right side of the screen at the same time. Unplug it and repeat if necessary while watching the bottom corner to see a change which indicates it senses the connection. A normal internet connection icon looks like the picture of a computer monitor. Some glow green when they are active and the ethernet cable is connected. Some show a red "X" over the picture of the monitor on the bottom right side of your screen when the internet connection is down or not working. Some will say "cable disconnected" when you unplug the ethernet cord. Some show "Cable now connected" when you plug it back in. You should see something change and/or appear if your pc is picking up the internet connection correctly. When you have verified this as true - then you can continue on to the next step of troubleshooting the internet connection.

DSL service is an internet connection that is always on. Its considered a "live" connection. DSL connections usually do not require any set up (programming or changing settings). The only time that this is not the case is when someone tries to to set up a dial up connection like aol over the top of a dsl connection. You can check this by going to your control panel, click on internet options, and choose the "connection" tab at the top. In the connection area box there should be "nothing". The connection area box is for dial up connection settings. If a dial up service was set up in the pc it would show it here (you would see AOL dial up ect). If you see a dial up connection set up and you know that you have dsl, click on the remove box and delete it from this area.

You do not need to install anything from a disk to establish an internet connection if you have a dsl line. That means you dont need an "aol" disk or software to make the internet work.

to start the internet click on the blue "e" on your desktop which stands for internet explorer.

If you have any questions you can reply to my solution by going into the problem you posted on Fixya and click on the "reply" option.

When you get that symbol in Windows 7 it usually means that there is no internet connection. You can be connected to the wireless router but still not get on line if the wireless router has lost the internet connection. Probably your best bet will be to update the firmware on the NBG-419n. The only firmware sometimes had issues staying connected to the Internet through some modems. First you will need to download the firmare. Here is a direct link. Firmware Then you need to log into the router. It will be best if you are on a computer that is connected by Ethernet to one of the LAN ports on the router. Open up Internet Explorer and type '192.168.1.1' into the address bar. You should get the login page for the NBG-419n. Default password is 1234. Once logged in click on Expert Mode at the top right corner of the page. Then click on the maintenance icon on the left side of the screen, then click the Maintenance heading to drop down the list, then click on Firmware Upload. Once in there click Browse and select that BIN file. Then click Upload. The firmware upgrade should take a couple of minutes. Once it is done you may want to power cycle your modem for a couple of minutes and then see if you can get on line. This should help with any connectivity issues.

You need to setup cisco page, with your ISP. Your setup name and password must be same for all computers. All computers for this installation must connected by wire at the beginning. And make sure you enable the wireless options on Linksys page. READ HELP form Linksys main page.

Can't connect to internet


there is a switch on the front or side that needs to be put to the on position, if it's anything like mine it is very small and hared to see. If you normally have a LED that tells you that the adapter is on, it's normally near that.

Go into Network connections in control panel and right click on the wireless network icon, then click on properties. In here change the settings so that Windows manages your wirless settings rather than the Belkin software, I find this normally works a lot better and more reliable. You should then be able to double click the wireless icon (Not the Belkin Icon) in the bottom corner of your screen and connect to your wireless network.
