MY MODEM IS SCREWING UP MY GAMING!

I am trying to load the program "steam" onto my computer, it is made for updating games through the internet. But, everytime i try to load it, it tries to get through to the internet to update, and it doesn't let it. What can i do to fix it? i think it may be a problem with my modem, i have an ActionTec GT701-WG if that matters. THANKS/

Hi

You must go to your computer go to your browser ... access the web interface that you have inside the modem (refer to manual to see exact IP most of them are http://10.0.0.138 and from there you can arrange the firewall to allow the steam software to connect through. Most probably you will have a preset which you have to choose for gaming in order to get things going.

I hope that you get gaming soon :)

My computer seems to disconnect the internet


Wireless or Hard Wired internet connection ?

When you set up a dial-up Internet service connection on your Windows computer, it comes automatically configured to disconnect itself after a predetermined period of inactivity.


This means that if you walk away from your computer and forget that you're online, your internet connection will automatically shut itself down.


If this feature isn't as helpful as you assumed it would be, you can turn it off using the Network and Sharing Center.

Click "Start."


Click "Control Panel."

Click "Network and Sharing Center."


Click "Change Adapter Settings."


Right-click on your dial-up Internet service icon.

Click "Properties."


Clear the check box next to the "Auto Disconnect" listing on screen.

Click "Apply."


The auto disconnect on your computer Internet service connection is now turned off.


also if its running slow


Slow computers that persistently disconnect from Internet access may have issues with the wireless setup or if on a wired connection, there may be a problem with the Ethernet cable or port.

Troubleshooting connection and speed issues can save money rather than taking the computer to a technician or repair shop.


Additionally, some firewalls and security features can make it difficult to access certain types of websites.


Before spending money to have the computer diagnosed, try running through the most common, basic causes of connection issues.


Consider the type of site you are trying to access.

High-traffic sites such as gaming sites can sometimes be affected by high volumes of users accessing or attempting to access the site at once.


Test this by attempting to access the site at different times during the day and evening; peak hours for games that typically appeal to children may be during the afternoons on weekdays while games for older or more mature audiences will see high traffic at night.


Check your Internet connectivity and determine whether you are using a wired or wireless connection.

In the lower right side of the computer screen there should be an icon displaying the Internet or network connection.


Wireless connections are displayed with connection bars similar to those seen on cell phones while wired connections may show the end of a plug next to a monitor icon.


Reset the router if using a wireless connection.


For most home routers you simply unplug the power cord from the router box, wait a moment and plug it back in.


You may have to restart your computer to reestablish a secure connection.


Access the router through the computer and check for updates. Some routers offer firmware updates that fix some connectivity issues.


While updating the router, check for Internet browser updates as well as any critical updates for your computer's operating system.

Verify the computer uses the most up-to-date version of the Web browser available.


Try a different browser. Internet Explorer is the most commonly used Web browser, but not always the best for every site.


Try downloading another Web browser such as Firefox, Opera, or Google Chrome and test the sites there.


If the connections are still disconnected and the Internet speed seems slow, it may be an Internet issue.


Wired Connections


Trace the Ethernet cable from the Internet modem to the computer if using a wired connection.


Unplug the end of the Ethernet cable and check that the plastic head is secure and that there is a click when you return the plug to the modem; do the same on the computer end.


Inspect the Ethernet cable carefully as it runs from the modem to the computer.

If the cable was tacked down with a staple gun or other attachment, check the cable to verify it wasn't accidentally pierced.


Additionally, check for bends, twists or worn areas along the cable.

Measure the length of the Ethernet cable.


In general, cables longer than 100 feet tend to receive poorer signal transmission.


If the cable is longer than 100 feet, replacing with a higher quality cable or moving the computer or Internet modem may resolve connection issues.



Hope this helps.

I have a dell precision 450, i play games on my computer, i run most games fine but games like call of duty 4 and guild wars crash for no reason my computer has all the recommended specifications and my...


Theoretically, your computer should have no problem running these programs. However, after researching the Dell Precision 450 specs, I found that it is a business machine with a quadro graphics card. This card is not targeted at gaming applications such as an Nvidia GeForce. This link will explain the differences. The graphics card itself may be causing the problem if the graphics drivers are crashing. This manifests as everything going black and no keys working. Also, if it is the stock card, it barely has enough graphics memory to run guild wars. You could try updating the graphics drivers from Nvidia. You could also get a new graphics card that is designed for gaming.

Another solution that you could try is updating the games by downloading patches for your games.

Yes my uncle jus got a the internet for his computer and we did the setup and every thing got the internet then we got him some virus protection great then we installed steam i hope you know what this is...


Depending on the chipset and the manufacturer....you MAYBE able to fix this problem by pressing the computer about 10 times. This method brings back the old configuration to your computer. If this doesn't work go into the cmos menu at the start of starting your computer, then find the option to reset all configuration. If this works...the next time you run that game, try lowering the resolution from your windows settings. Your computer may not have a powerful graphics chip that is able to handle a new game.
*All computer problems can have multiple solutions and have to be treated as a trial and error fix. Trying to fix a computer without being hands on is really tough. Hope this helps!

How do i upgrade my packard bell imax mini n3600? i want it to wrk better as a gaming computer


This is a media PC and not meant for hard gaming. My advice don't waste your money on this PC to turn it to a gaming PC. The components are all built-in onto the motherboard except for the RAM & HDD.

How do I down load to an external drive and not the main computer


First Solution:-

1. If you have copied a particular game's folder to the external drive, go to Start menu > Programs.
2. Right click on the file name of the game.
3. Click on "Properties"
4. Go to "shortcut" page and change the "Target" path directing the EXE file to the folder in the external drive where you have copy-pasted the your game.
5. Click on "Apply" and "OK".
6. Now, try to start the game, and you should be able to play.

An alternate solution is given below.

In both the cases (internet game / purchased games):-
1. First plug in the external hard drive to your computer.
2. You will have to run the installation file of the game (both purchased and internet download) and select the folder path directing it to the external hard drive.
3. For some games, you may have to uninstall the existing game first to re-install and select the desire folder path (external drive).
4. Games will be installed in external drive and also available in start menu > programs > "your game".

Happy gaming! :)

I purchased the Norton 360 Version 2.0 yesterday, and am trying to load it onto my machine. After checking for an updated version, I get an error message saying that the updated version will not load onto...


If you are having problems installing security software, and have 1500 documented problems, you may have a severe MALWARE infection. MALWARE (Virus, Spyware, adware etc.) often attack, disable or prevent the installation of security software.

Depending on the severity and how deeply imbedded the walware infection is determines the final resolve. UNfortunately, the final answer often is a complete reformat and reinstall of the operating system.

Things you can try:

If you can, download and run SPYBOT Search and Destroy from www.download.com

Other applications you may try to attack the problem are:

AVG antivirus from free.avg.com
ccleaner and Smitfraud fix from http://www.gur.in/download/

Often, it is just too much work to get rid of a massive infection and mort effective to format and start with a clean drive and install the security software before re-connecting to the internet.
