TV Tuner not tuning

I have a Versa P9120 running Vista Premium Home - I have 3 problems.1. I can connect to the internet via a cable modem using the USB Port but not by using the Ethernet connection. The modem is a Motorola SURFboard SB5101 - using the driver CD that comes with the modem I get an error message that says the computer is not connected to the modem and to check connections (the ethernet cable works fine with another laptop running XP).2. I cannot tune the TV Tuner either through Media Centre or by using the Bisoncam software that comes with the Versa - I conect an external aerial - the same one I use on my home TV - media centre automatically gets settings for Australia (where I am) and in Bisoncam I select PAL B. When I scan it appears to scan all frequencies but at the finish of the scan no channels are available.3. I cannot find the software for Bluetooth anywhere - the drivers are installed and the device manager says they are working correctly however when I turn the Bluetooth on (using the switch next to the power button - 2 clicks) the blue light comes on but when I attempt to pair with another device using the other device to find the Versa the other devices just come back with nothing found.Thanks for any help you might be able to provide.Cheers, Scott

If you're using your system as the Host for the other systems, turn off your sleep mode. The Host should be active at ALL times.

1. Make sure your cable modem is connected to the Internet port of the router.
2. Your computer should connected to one of the 4 ports at the back of the router.
3. Check the lights that are lit. Make sure the you have power(steady green), Internet, WLAN and Ethernet port light.
4. Press and hold the reset button on the router for 15 seconds.
5. After 15 seconds, release the reset on the router and turn it off.
6. Turn the cable modem off, too.
7. Wait for a minute. Turn the modem ON first. Wait for the lights on the modem to be ready.
8. Turn on the router. Make sure you have good lights on the router.

G router wont work through vista or satellite dish


hello!

-- who is your internet service provider
-- what is the operating system of your computer?
-- is this working fine before or is this a brand new router

you may try this and see if this help solve your problem. make sure your computer is directly connected to the router

Step 1: Shutdown the computer.
Step 2: reset the router while power on then Unplug the router’s power cable.
Step 3: Unplug the Broadband modem’s power cable and wait for 30 seconds.
Step 4: Plug in the Broadband modem’s power cable and wait for its lights to appear stable.
Step 5: Plug in the router's power cable once the modem’s lights appear stable.
Step 6: Power on the computer on and configure the router settings
Step 7: test the Internet connection.

if this still didnot work, upgrade the firmware of your router

note:

configuring the router settings will depends who is your provider. if your isp is dsl you need to configure your ISP username and password on the router. if your router is a cable no need to change any settings on the router. it should automatically work

if you are still having trouble configuring your device, try to call supportrix and use supportcall as your promo code for 1 free technical support.

Tuner Problems


OK the tuner may be causing these problems, however first I would like you to go to your menu and set the RF pickup to antenna (This will allow analog channels) then come out of the memu and select a channel in the analog range channel 4, 7, or 9 try to tune in these channels. If this fails then you may have tuner problems the only way to be sure is to use a RF signal generator to send RF through the tuner and see if the video and audio being carried on that signal comes through. Sometimes the Internet connect gets messed up when the TV does not have the proper RF filters this may be your case. Try this use a Cable tv set top box and just set your TV to channel 3 for cable. This should Isolate the TV from the Internet cable modem and provide the signal needed by the TV.
