My iMac froze and won't reboot


Your question is incomplete. Your imac froze and wont reboot. What you see on screen when you start it? Do you see a spining wheel or a folder sign with a question mark or a blue screen? If yes then it's either corrupt/damaged osx or bad hard drive.
Good luck.

IMac deactivates USB port when I connect my Nikon P300


Try connecting the camera directly to the computer, without going through a hub. If that doesn't work, then buy a card reader.

I am trying to get my wii to work on my netgear wgr164 v7 but i keep geting an error code 51030 & i need my password for my netgear


if you dont remember password for your wireless and also for your router.

the best bet would be to hit reset button on wireless router.

you will have to go through the phase of setting it all up again.

once you hit the reset, all the ip details (username and password are located under the netgear router)

let me know how you get on

I have an apple router. Periodically, I cannot connect to Internet. I must unplug router and modem and replug. Things can be fine for days, then it happens again. My cable provider has checked all lines. I...


It's a common problem with wireless routers, especially with certain ISP's, there's several theories about why this happens including cheap parts and software on the routers but it can be much worse if it's over a cable connection. Possibly because the MTU is higher on cable networks than wireless ones. This issue doesn't seem to affect wired connections to the routers as much. ie you may still get a working wired connection even if the wireless isn't working.

Certain makes are known to behave this way, with certain ISP's. eg in england there's a cable company called virgin media, belkin routers really don't seem to like them, but netgear seem to work much better, which is probably why virgin recommend netgear and will only supply netgear routers themselves.

Try changing the channel id if it's wireless, as there may be a lot of interference around you and this may or may not have a bearing on this issue. If that doesn't help then ask your isp what make they recommend as they should have an idea of what will work best, at least the tech support dept should.

In my opinion the best makes of routers are netgear and linksys. I also like belkin although they aren't as good as they used to be, and as mentioned can suffer from this problem quite badly in some cases. As you are with a cable

You will never completely eradicate this problem, all wireless routers will need resetting now and again, but it should be weeks or preferably months between each time. Cisco routers may be more reliable but they're business routers and are very expensive, and probably a bit more complicated to setup.

ps. I used to work for virgin media as tech support.

Cannot connect to Computer


Turn off computer. Turn ON computer and immediately hold down Apple+option+p+r. after 4 chimes let go. You are going to be using the Firewire cable. once the camera is on and plugged into computer go to : apple> about this mac> more info click on Firewire. on the right hand side you should see your camera. Now if you don't its either the Firewire port on camera or the cable it self. to further isolate. Get your older computer. leave off. plug the firewire cable into both computers. Now the older computer that is turned off. TURN ON and immediately hold down the " T " on keyboard. ON the polder mac, your screen with have like a "Y" icon.. its a Firewire icon. Now look on the other computers desktop, do you see a yellow or blue hard drive on desktop. IF you do.. ITS your camera because we just tested your cable and both ports and they are working. Now try the USB cable and see if its detected by computer by going back to Apple system profiler and see if the computer is detecting it
