These computers are temperamental things, aren't they?! I worked this morning with a tech in live chat for an hour or more. FINALLY, the solution was as simple as setting the date on the computer properly! Don't ask me why this problem caused this particular difficulty.. Now if I can only remember that the next time it happens.

The free phone call at gmail doesn't work


Google offers free calling online via its Google Voice service and your Gmail account.
As of the date of this publication, the free service only applies to calls made to phones within the United States.

Activating the service requires modifying your Gmail settings.
Once you've changed the settings to enable outbound voice calls to phones, you can make calls from Google's dialing system through the Gmail "Chat" area.

Set up a headset, or microphone and speakers, on your computer to use during the call.
Sign in to your Gmail account.

Click the gear-shaped icon at the top-right corner of the screen and select "Mail settings" from the drop-down menu.


Click the "Chat" tab to see the Chat options, then set up your voice chat features. Verify the audio settings in the "Voice and video chat" section, then click the circle to the left of "Enable outbound voice calling with Google Voice" and select your default country in the "Call Phones" area.

When finished, click the "Save Changes" button. Scroll down to the "Chat" area in your Gmail and click the "Call phone" option to open the "Call" window that features the dialer number keypad.


Check that the flag to the left of the phone number field in the "Call" window matches your country so that Google Voice dials using the correct country code.

If it isn't the correct flag, click the down arrow to the right of the flag and select the correct one. Enter the number of the phone you want to call, then click the "Call" button to dial the number.

When you're finished, click "End" to disconnect the call or wait for the other person to hang up; the system automatically disconnects shortly after.

How can i connect my desktop computer to the internet plz i need someone to help


Currently, the most common way to connect a desktop system to the internet, is by using the network jack to connect to a broadband cable modem or DSL modem. To do either you must have the service from either you cable provider or phone company (For DSL) and have the modem device for the service. Fees run $20 to $50 a month depending on speed you subscribe.
You connect the device to the system using a CAT5 network cable to a RJ45 (8 wire telephone type jack). Some Cable/DSL modems also have USB connection capability for the few systems these days that do not have a built in RJ45 connector To use them, you install the associated software, then connect the USB cable when prompted.
If you don't have Cable/DSL then dial up telephone modem is the next option, this requires a telephone modem that has an RJ11c telephone cord jack connection, most current computers only have a telephone modem as an option, but they can still be bought for around $20 and you will require a dial up internet service (Few remain, one is Netzero in the USA)

We have BT broadband. When we occasionally have to reset the router, everything except the 2 Dell Dimension 5150 desktops works via wireless. They refuse to reconnect. All the other Desktops / laptops work...


Not sure exactly what your hardware setup is, but I would reboot the broadband router, then reboot the wireless router. Everything should come up clean, but give it at least 5 min. To help connect after reboots, you can choose "repair" from the wireless icon in the system tray (XP?) or renew your IP address. Start --> Run... and type ipconfig /renew

Hope this helps!
If so, please leave a rating!

My internet speed is slow.I connect it via bluetooth.


Internet broadband connection is much more faster because it is directly connected via physical connection from the modem (typical setup for home use). But now a days wireless internet can now compete with DSL thru a 3G/HSPDA network. In our country we can have a maximum bandwidth of 2.5Mbps using 3G wireless network.

Answer:
Yes you can speed up your connection using your phone as a modem but you need to consider some aspects.
  • your phone is a 3G capable phone
  • you have 3G network signal that an indicator "3G"can be seen next to the signal meter of your phone.
  • your network provider has 3G services.
What happen to you most likely is that your are connected using only a GPRS/EDGE. This is equivalent to a dial-up with maximum of 56kbps transfer rate. There is a great gap between the two if you compare it.

I already tested mine with maximum receive/downlink of 2,501 Kbps. I was really amazed.

Hope this things help you. If it does, please rate me.

Compaq presario sr2020nx ethernet adapter issue


Since youre setting up a DSL connection choose Set up broadband connection > PPPoE. You will need the username and password you were given to this account (contact customer service at your ISP for this info). Enter the info and have it remember the password. Click connect. Once Vista finds the connection, it will ask you to choose a network type (Home, Work, or Public). Select the type and enjoy. If the connection fails, recheck your username and password entries.

LAN card not installing


u can use any brand . there's no problem in that . installation procedure is very simple. just buy a pci lan card. Insert it in the pci slot. Then switch on your computer , insert the driver cd provided with your lan card , then install the appropriate drivers.
Then, you can connect BSNL Broadband by connecting your ADSL modem with your LAN card.


Hope it helps..

Grydor.
