    Do you have a firewall? If so, it could be set in such a way that it is too strict. Also, if you are using a wireless card it is possible it is contributing to the issue (I once had a Netgear card that would not allow browsing to Google.) So, if you use a router/wireless card that might help us - as well as if you use a firewall and what brand.

I can not keep cenyury as my home page how do i fix it


First question is are you on a work-site network? If so, like my job-site, the IT department has set certain values in the background so that no matter what - you will open to the corporation's homepage - then you can change it - If this is what is happening, then you are hooped.

To connect your computer to the Linksys wireless router using the LAN card in your computer you need to install the LAN card driver. If you want to use a wireless connection with your Dell desktop, you will need to install a wireless card on your Dell plus the wireless card driver.
For the LAN card driver, download the driver from the Dell WEB site.

You can download the device drivers from Dell WEB site,the support download page. Make sure you select your model desktop or laptop,better still, type in the Service Tag number, it is printed on the label on thebottom of the laptop and on the back or sides of a desktop. (If the Service Taglabel is missing then go into the BIOS setting and on one of the BIOS pages,the Service Tag number will be displayed). This will open the page where thespecific drivers for your model computer are located. Also make sure you selectthe Windows of the drivers for your Windows operating system. Click on thislink to download the drivers: - http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/index.aspx?c=us&l=en&s=gen

Connection to wireless internet is excellent but no browsers open


You may have a corrupt/deleted file and want to Restore/Reload your windows. The windows program is usually stored/hidden on the harddrive in another directory. Easiest way is to use Control Panel and something like System Maint to reload the Windows. Drawback is that the system will be the same as when first removed from the box, and you'll have to reload any programs, printers and such. If you have any files you want to save, you should back it up on an external source. Then go back and reload and reconfigure your computer.

Open DNS is troubles me when important downloading it is block that sites pl.give me solution to delete or remove the Open DNS


No.1 : If you are on corporate/company LAN, there's nothing much you can do unless you are the system/network administrator. If you are then make the necessary changes in the software at the server level( where open dns and proxy is hosted for access). But beware of your corporate security policies.

No.2 If you are at home or if you have your own internet connection, uninstall or disable open dns and point your system/laptop direcltly to the DNS servers provided by your ISP

I usually dual monitor and have programs open on both. now that i am at home i do not have my second monitor only my laptop. when i go to open a certain program it opens on my "second monitor" that isnt...


You should go to the display properties on your laptop while at home and disable the dual monitor setting. You should then have all programs open on your laptop screen and not on the secondary monitor. If running XP, right click an open spot on desktop and select Properties. If running Vista, right click an open spot on desktop and select Personalize. Go to Display Settings, select the second monitor and uncheck "Extend the desktop onto this monitor". Hope this helps.
