Question about Computers & Internet
I have an asus A6QOOVA laptop for some years now. I did a format , reinstalled windows XP, but still freezes. When I use the wifi,although it is connected to the internet I get the sign that internet explorer cannot find page , not connected to the internet(when at the same time my mac works with the same internet connection). I Had windows repairing the connection it works for some seconds and again cuts off.Is there a way to repair the laptop or I need to get a new one, as also it freezes when opening some applications as well.
My advice and personal experiences with both wired and wireless connectivity, is if you wish to share files and internet connection, purchase a combined Modem/Router and not a seperate router to work along side your original modem. Your modem will send your router an ip address in turn your pc is sent one from your router and can get complicated; keep it simple! These are much easier to set up and control as one unit and if there are ever any connection problems you will know it's either a setting or a modem/router problem and not have to wonder ; is it the modem?; Router? settings? etc. As there are frequent loss of connections both internet and LAN it makes sense have one peice of equipment to maintain.

Are you running a virus scanner or internet security software?
Is it active and has it been updated recently?
Do you perform periodic full scan of your systems and are they clean?
Do you run any apyware packages?
Are they active and have they been updated lately?
Do you perform periodic scans with them and is your system clean?
Not all virus scanners, etc catch all problems. Some catch different items.
Consider using free online services from some of the security vendors to double check your product. Several to consider
Fsecure (www.fsecure.com and search for online scanner)
Consider free spyware software for additional checks if you have not choosen to purchase a product to do this.
Clean up the issues found and see if the problems are eliminated.
Using the following instructions from the zonet website to get your IP address will also reveal your router's address in the default gateway entry (assuming your computer receives it's IP information via DHCP from the router or has been staticslly configured correctly). This will be the value you utilize instead of 192.168.1.1 to access the router's configuration.
Q: How can I find the IP address of my computer? A: Windows 95, 98, and ME:
Click on Start.
Then click on Run.
The Run Dialogue Box will appear. Type "winipcfg" in the window as shown then click OK.
The IP Configuration window will appear, displaying your Ethernet Adapter Information.
Select your adapter from the drop down menu.
If you do not see your adapter in the drop down menu, your adapter is not properly installed.
After selecting your adapter, it will display your IP address, subnet mask, and default gateway.
Click OK to close the IP Configuration window.
Windows 2000 and XP:
Click on Start and select Run.
Type cmd then click OK.
From the Command Prompt, enter ipconfig. It will return your IP address, subnet mask, and default gateway.
Type exit to close the command prompt.
Macintosh 8.x and 9.x:
Click on the Apple Menu>Control Panels>TCP/IP.
Select your Ethernet adapter from the Connect Via drop-down menu.
Under Setup, select Using DHCP Server from the Configure drop-down menu, if connecting to a router DHCP server. This is the most common setting when using a router. In this configuration, your computer will be automatically assigned an IP address by the router.
You must reboot your computer to "renew" your IP address.
Macintosh OS X:
Click on Apple Menu>System Preferences>Network>TCP/IP.
At the command line type /sbin/ifconfig and you will get a listing of information. Your IP is shown after inet addr.

Tap the "EV" or "1X" icon on the top of the today screen, and then tap settings. Select the Wireless LAN, and then tap the icon in the bottom left corner that looks like a target with parenthesis. That just got you to the communication manager. There you can toggle your "phone" on and off, as well as bluetooth, wireless and sound, among others (depending on what you have installed). when you tap the antenna for wireless, does it turn green, and the little "x" go away? That's what you need to figure out first, after that we can go look at some other things....
