It sounds like, your firewall blocks the Internet connection. Reset the firewall on default.

Try opening internet explorer and going to www.google.com
If this also produces an error, go to START -> Type "CMD" in the search box and hit ENTER
A black box will apear.
Type "ping www.google.com"
If it comes back with errors, it is your internet connection. You can be connected to your home network whilst your internet is not working.
Are you on windows 7?
If so try this:
There should be a network icon at the bottom right of your screen, a computer icon. Right click it, select "open network and sharing center"

You should have a network that says LOCAL AREA CONNECTION. Select this.
Click on DETAILS...
You should have an IPv4 Address that looks similar to "192.168.1.3"
Write down this address.
Close the current screen. You should be on the LOCAL AREA CONNECTION STATUS screen again.
Click PROPERTIES.
Double click the INTERNET PROCOTOL VERSION 4
Select USE THE FOLLOWING IP ADDRESS:
Now remember that IPv4 address i told you to remember? Well put that down in the IPADDRESS field, except add +15 to the number.
Eg. original: 192.168.1.3
Make it: 192.168.1.45
Subnet should be: 255.255.255.0
Default gateway should be the same as your IP but with a 1 at the end.
EG: 192.168.1.1

As for the DNS - Log in to your router/modem and in the summary or overview section it should list the primary and secondary DNS ip addresses, find them and fill in the remaining 2 boxes.

That's it, you're done. Enjoy your internet.

Internet connection problems with a laptop using alltel data card


This sounds like a Line noise problem not a modem problem. Try getting a line noise filter from Radio Shack or a local computer store and see if that will solve the problem. You might check your house wiring for loose connections as well or possibly Ants in the box outside your house where the phone lines come in.

When i try 2 log on (sing in) I get.


Yeah, the old DNAS communication error. What you need to do first is make sure you're connected to a working internet connection. If you are, then make sure your internet box is giving good connection. If also yes after that then what you need to do is usually during games you can test your internet connection first. If you have a computer handy, then hook the internet up to that to set up the connection. Sometimes on my internet it won't read it because it's loading. So hook up the internet cable to a computer, logon onto yahoo or something...then plug it in the PS3 and see if it helps.

Nintendo usb connector


hi coolsoph,

Firstly, take note that Windows Vista doesn't support the Nintendo USB connector (currently there is now way of making it work on Vista, hopefully this will be resolved with the release of Vista Service Pack 1).

Secondly, and this is if you are using Windows XP as your computer operating system, try these steps to enable XP to share it's Internet connection with other computer (for ex your Wii):

1. Click Start -> Control Panel
2. In Control Panel open the Network Connections applet
3. Right-click on your active connection (will be named something like "Local Area Connection" if you use a cable to connect to your router or "Wireless Network Connection" if you use a wireless technology to connect to your router).
4. Click on Properties
5. Select the Advanced tab
6. Check the box named "Allow other network users to connect through this computer's Internet connection" in the Internet Connection Sharing area.
7. For good measure you can restart your PC after checking the box

I hope this is helpful information and thanks for using the FixYa services
Regards
