Connect to wifi


Your desktop may already enjoy a wired broadband Internet connection, but a Wi-Fi connection will afford you greater latitude in Internet use.
Wires will not be necessary, so you can establish your PC in any room or area of your home or office and still stay connected to the Internet.
Fortunately, you only need a wireless router, broadband modem, and ethernet cable to make this Wi-Fi connection.

Disconnect your modem from the wall socket it's plugged into.
Connect the ethernet cable to the back of the modem.
There is a clearly marked ethernet port here.
This port will appear to be an oversized telephone jack.
Connect the other end of the ethernet cable to the ethernet port on the back of the wireless router.
This port will look exactly the same as the one on the rear of the modem.
Plug the broadband modem back up to the wall socket and wait for it to power on, initialize and detect its new connection to the wireless router.
Locate the manual that shipped with your wireless router.
Find the URL, or web address, that is contained within the pages of this manual.
This special web address is used to set up your router's network and security permissions.
Also, be sure to locate the default password provided within the pages of the manual.
Enter the URL into your web browser and allow the page to load.
When prompted, enter the password that you found within the instruction manual.
Begin setting up your new wireless network.
You will be asked for an "SSID," which is just a moniker for your new network.
This will be the name seen when the network is listed in an available network list.
Choose whatever name you like.
Select a password for your new network.
While encrypting your network is optional, it is highly recommended.
Along with the password, choose "WPA" security encryption.
"WEP" will also be an option but it is an older security protocol that is technologically inferior to WPA.
Click "Apply" to save your changes.
Click on the wireless icon on the right-hand side of the bottom toolbar on your PC's desktop. Select your network's SSID from the drop-down list.
Enter the password you chose for your network.
You will now be connected to WiFi Internet on your PC desktop and free to browse the Web.

I keep losing broadband connections on some web sites, i have replaced the ethernet cable and ethernet card looks ok?


Unless you lose connection on every single page and website,
its not your Ethernet card or your carrier, its there's.

Just buy looking at a card, there is no way to tell if it is ok, when the card goes bad it does not look different or change color.

Do a speed test on the card and see if you are getting the same speed and the card is rated for.

Download speed/spybot query


If you are really downloading files at 24 kbps and on broadband, there is a serious issue. Broadband download speeds are generally in Mbps, while only dial-up speeds are in kbps. This is kilobytes vs. megabytes (a 1,000 multiple difference). Do you have an internal modem that is perhaps connecting, and should not be? If sounds as though you need to check out your broadband. Also, FYI, the 54kbps you have heard about is simply the most usual dial-up modem speed - it is not broadband. [One finer point in regard to broadband speeds - most broadband has slower speeds for upload than download, which is known as asynchronous. The actual download speed you obtain will depend not only on what you have subscribed to, but also the capacity of the line and so forth; but you should be "always connected" and should never see download speeds measured in anything less than 100s of kbps, if not Mbps.]

In regard to the spybot matter, it sounds as though the current version may not be loaded. Did you actually download spybot, or did you leave the system with only nod32 & zone alarm? If you did download spybot (v1.4), please see info at the page below, and follow that link to download upgrade.
http://forums.spybot.info/showthread.php?p=197900

Spybot is good for making sure you are protected against spyware, and as I stated earlier, running more than one spyware program is not a bad thing to do. However, perhaps I should have clarified with you that the Nod32 you are running is the full solution - if it is AV only, you should put on a spyware protection package, and I believe spybot is the best of the free versions.

Back to your broadband/download speed - you should never get 24kbps on broadband. It sounds like something is definitely wrong, and I would suggest that you speak with Tech Support at your Broadband provider about this. They may need to walk you through a check of your modem, or the line may need to be checked, etc.

By the way, I spent some considerable time and energy researching items for you in regard to registry cleaners. Did you see the additional comments I sent to you following the original lengthy response? I wanted to make sure that you felt you had gotten a FixYa level solution from me, as I feel that a "good" rating instead of an "excellent" rating indicates that you feel I did not give you everything you asked for... If you are satisfied that I fully responded, I would certainly appreciate your reconsideration of that rating.

Please post back if you need further assistance or clarification with this matter; otherwise, thank you again for using and rating FixYa!
