If you have the router set to enable dhcp which gives your network cards an ip address automatically, then check that the network card of the main pc is set to obtain ip addresss automatically, this is in network connections, right click on network connection icon, properties and on the TCP/IP line click properties and check that 'obtain ip address automatically is ticked, apply and ok. Igf you have tried to repair the connection using wizard, then your settings will have been changed, thats possibly the problem. Also go into the routers settings and see if the main pc is listed under dhcp clients and that an ip address is given.

I want to remove a second id but keep my main id account


Go to Administrative Tools --> Computer Management. On the left hand side you should see Local Users and Groups. Click users. In the main it will list the local users for your computer. Just right click the user name and select delete. BTW, you cannot delete the user that you are signed in as. You will need to be signed in under a separate user than the one you wish to delete. Given that your description states that you are wanting to remove a secondary account then I don't see any of this being an issue.

I have windows vista i had unistalled some things that i didnt need. Now my computer is askin me for another user account to sign in and it wont let me do nothing at all. Why? What can i do its locked


2 Things are important here.
  1. When u uninstalled certain items u might have been on an account which had administrative privileges.So check how many user accounts your computer has.Try Using an Account which has administrative privileges.
  2. Another is u might have logged off from your main Account and that might be the reason your computer is asking u to sign in.If so,do sign in with ur password and u may be able to access your PC normally.In that case this has nothing to do with the programs u have uninstalled.

Thank you for using fixya.

Being that your other computers in the network are working properly, you should switch the ip settings on your comnputer to automatically detect. That way your computer does all the routing and ip setting,

After you have set that back. Remove the power of your router, remove the power of your modem, and restart your computer.

Once your computer is back up, turn on modem, then the router.

It sounds very simple, but in most cases, it solves the problem.


Hope this information is helpful

I have a Zonet Router that I am hooking up to Comcast DSL internet. i show that i am connected but i can not get online. i duplicated the MAC address i just dont know what else can be wrong. is there a...


The first thing is that Comcast is Not a DSL connection it is Cable connection. Now first make sure that your computer will be able to go on line when connected directly to the modem. Connect your main computer directly to the comcast modem and check if that goes on line. If not then you will need to contact Comcast and get main computer on line. If it is online then reset your router for 30 seconds. release the reset and wait for 1 minute. Now connect the main computer to the router and comcast modem to the router. open the set up page and Clone the MAC address of the " Main " computer.
power cycle the modem and the router. See if it works.

We keep getting dropped for known reason .


Your internet modem needs to be reset to find the router first. The modem will find the first address when rebooting the entire system or if something gets unplugged..
I've had great success doing the following:
First of all turn off ALL computers, routers, modem ...everything... Then connect power to the main routing source... usually you've got your modem plugged into this.. Just start the router first with all ethernet cabling etc disconnected. Then secondly, connect power to the modem... As the modem connects, it will find the router ip address first... then you are set to turn on the wireless, and the other computers... and the router should designate proper ip addresses for all the peripherals and keep them connected without dropping someone off to allow the other address on... Hope this is clear.... So first the main router, then the modem followed by everything else... Let me know what happens ... and if you need more help...

Help please


you can go to any wi-fi locations near your area and access the internet on your laptop. I think AT&T offers wi-fi access to its members on any of its designated hotspot /wifi locations (nearly 15,000 company-owned & roaming) e.g. McDonald's, Barnes & Noble bookstores, leading airports, coffee shops, etc. you can visit att.com and login to your account to find more details.
or call them at: 1-888-888-7520

you don't need to install any software/ dsl installation on your laptop when you are using a public wi-fi connection, just ensure that your computer firewall is on and take precautions when sending out any personal info online.
