First make sure all pcs are on the same network name, usually either mshome or workgroup, to check this go to my computer>right click>properties then look at computer name tab, if any are different than the network you should be named as click change name, save and restart. Then go to each computers network adapters properties and go to the TCP/IP line nd click properties again and check that the cards are set to obtain ip address automatically and click ok, because if you hve used the wizard it would have changed your pc's ip addresses. Next go into your routers settings by typing it's ip address in your web browser (eg 192.168.1.1, depending on the router, refer to manual) and look in menu for DHCP and make sure this is enabled so as to automatically asign your pc's an ip address. If you are struggling for any of the pcs's to obtain an address, click Start>Run, then type ipconfig /flushdns to clear all ip and dns addresses.

I cant open my ipod touch because of its pin number and now it says disabled and cant put into first computer it is broken


Ok, I'm not exactly sure what you mean by not being able to put it in to the first computer....but you should be able to plug it in to any computer with iTunes installed and when the ipod shows up in itunes, click the option that says to restore the ipod to its factory settings. This should erase the pin number and then you can reload you music and everything.

2. If there is no ping then check the cable b/w lan computers 7 router.
3.Else if there is ping to router, then check ur router for any ip blocks, access lists etc..
4. Turn - off the local firewall, so there also a chance of it blocking access to internet

We ave lost our connection on our one computer to


Its sounds like it could be a number of problems. One problem may be that your computer's IP Address may have become invalid (expired, or other reasons). One way to fix this is to go to command prompt on your computer, and use the commands "ipconfig /release", and then "ipconfig /renew". After that, use the ping command to test connectivity. To do this, type in ping, and then your router's address (i.e. ping 192.168.1.1). If you get replies from your router's IP, then your connection is working. If you get a reply from an IP starting with 169, then your networks settings are probably incorrect. If your request times out 4 times, then you have other issues. In the case that your requests time out 4 times, try "ping 127.0.0.1". If this ping does not work, then you need to replace your NIC card.
If you still need help after performing these steps, or if you just have questions about the information in this solution, please feel free to contact me.

Uplink internet (PPPoE) will not be accessible after power cut


You are using the PPPOE connection. when you set up the router for the PPPOE connection, Do you see Internet IP address on the status page of the router.
If you have the internet IP address on the status page of the router then that is a very good thing. make sure that it shows the Internet connection type pppoe on the status page also.
your computer are communicating with each other they have the IP address that is a good thing also.
Now you can check the internet connection.
open the command prompt ( START ==> RUN == type cmd and click OK) In the command prompt try to ping the router IP address.
Suppose your router IP address is 192.168.1.1. then in the command prompt type " ping 192.168.1.1 " and hit ENTER on your key board.
You will get replies from the same IP address that is 192.168.1.1.
that means the connection between the computer and the router is working properly.
Now type in the command " ping 4.2.2.2 " and hit enter.
If you get the 4 replies from 4.2.2.2 that means you computer is communicating with the DNS servers. If you get the reply form different number or if you do not get replies that means the router is not set up properly or user name and password for the pppoe might not be proper.
Now you got 4 replies from 4.2.2.2.
Then type the command " ping yahoo.com" and hit enter.
Now check if you get replies from yahoo.com ( there might be replies from the number 66.x.x.x. or 207.x.x.x).
If you get the replies then everything is working properly. the issue might be with the firewall or internet browser.
Now if you don't get replies from yahoo.com but getting replies from 4.2.2.2 that means you will need to assign static DNS numbers on the computer.
In preferred DNS = 4.2.2.2
in alternate DNS = 4.2.2.3
that will resolve the issue.

High Ping When playing Battlefield 2142 Online


There are a lot of factors that can affect ping rates. Server location, server load, local internet load, and your computer and network setup. The server you access for Battlefield may be too far from you. Try typing "ping 69.147.114.210", at the command prompt,(usually found in "All Programs/Accessories") also without the quotes. You should get numbers in the 40-60ms range. (thats Yahoo.com by the way), then put in the IP number of the Battlefield server. Any returned numbers under 100ms are ok, if your getting higher numbers, check the Battlefield forums to see if there is a server closer to where your located. If your getting numbers over 250-300ms at both sites, then download Lavasofts Adaware SE which is free, and Spybot Search & Destroy, also free and run them both, (once a week after as well) they will remove spyware and adware from your computer. There is a possibility that spyware or adware is using network resources.

How to test Connections with Ping


Ping is one of the first tools to use to check computer, router and Internet connectivity. It's run at a command prompt, but getting the basic information is quite easy. You can do the whole thing in 30 seconds. 1. To run ping, type Start > Run. 2. Type cmd in the Run window, and click OK. A black and white command line window pops up. 3. Type ping followed by an IP address or a DNS address. 4. Press Enter to execute the command. Three useful examples: 1. ping 127.0.0.1 (This is a "loopback ping" ? your computer trying to talk to itself. This tests whether your computer is able to handle Ethernet traffic. If this has a negative result, the computer has an operating system problem.) 2. ping 192.168.1.1 (If the result is "Request timed out", type ping 192.168.0.1. If that also times out, then the computer is not making a connection to your router.) 3. ping www.netgear.com. (Tests whether your computer can contact Internet computers.) When there is no problem, the ping results look as shown in the following screenshot. Three items of interest in the results are highlighted with arrows. The first arrow shows the computer being contacted is replying. (The DNS address "www.netgear.com" is converted by ping into the equivalent IP address, 10.1.1.86.) This shows both that your network is connnected to the Internet, and that that computer on the Internet is running normally. www.netgear.com is always running, so this is a good test address to use. The second arrow shows that Ethernet packets have "0% loss". This is the best possible result. It means that the network connection is lightly loaded, and that it has not been necessary to transmit any of the same information twice. The third arrow shows the average time it took to answer. "Average = 0ms" is the best possible result. Probably you'll only get responses this quickly from computers on your own network. Interpreting Ping when There's a Problem As far as NETGEAR equipment, the problem you're most likely to run into is "Request Timed Out". This means there is no connection. Read these posts: http://www.fixya.com/ThreadView.aspx?prdid=252225&thid=102077 and http://www.fixya.com/ThreadView.aspx?prdid=252225&thid=102074 Another error is "Unknown host", which just means that the DNS or IP address you typed doesn't exist. Probably, you made a typo. Other problems are generally outside the scope of NETGEAR support. Often they are problems with your ISP ? contact them with concerns. A controversial situation is when packet loss is not 0%. Sometimes this indicates a severe problem, but in other situations it doesn't indicate any problem whatever. However anything higher than 5% is definitely a problem. If the average round trip time is > 500 ms, there' s possible latency problem. Again, contact your ISP. Limitations of the Ping Tool * Ping is not a good tool for diagnosing intermittent problems. * Good results are reliable, but ?bad results? could be caused by any number of things, and are not necessarily reliable! * Ping uses ICMP, which has low priority, showing speeds that are slower than regular network traffic. Some computers reject ICMP, and therefore pinging, entirely. * When an IP appears between the source and destination in a traceroute command it does *not* mean that that IP must be pingable.
