I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but Windstream disabled your peer-to-peer file sharing capabilities on purpose. Then they had a team of lawyers write the terms that give them many rights and give you few-to-none. Read carefully through the "Terms of Service" and "Acceptable Use" policies, available via links on the bottom of the Windstream web site. The quoted excerpts at the bottom of this message are only a few examples of these "agreements" that they've written and that you signed off on when you got their service. Windstream has made a numbers of things legal for themselves in their Service Agreement, and stated VERY simply they are as follows: =- You're not allowed to share files considered illegal, such as copyrighted media. =- You're not allowed to use a P2P client, or any other software that provides a server or sharing service. =- You're not allowed to use software that keeps itself connected after being interrupted. =- You're not allowed to use an IRC bot, or do anything other than simple "chat" on IRC. =- You're not allowed to try and change their installation software or alter how it's set up. =- If you terminate your contract early they have the right to bill you for at least $200. =- They're allowed to investigate your actions in any way if they decide they want to. =- They're allowed to terminate your service at any time. =- They're allowed to bill you a minimum of $500 if you violate any of these or dozens of other restrictions. Sorry to tell you this, but it looks as though you don't have any choice in the matter. I'm not a lawyer, but that's certainly the way it looks. Technically speaking, the only solution to this problem would be to use an entirely separate computer for your satellite connection. This is just my personal opinion, but I wouldn't go anywhere near that installer software. To alter it or otherwise. Sorry. Wish I could say something else to you about this... :\ ************************************** "The Acceptable Use Policy generally provides that you may not use our Internet access Service to (1) engage in illegal activity, (2) violate the network policies of any network accessed through our Service or (3) engage in any activity that interferes with other Internet users?..." "You agree that the phone on which your Windstream Service is activated may not be used to access any third-party services equivalent to Services provided..." "Your Windstream Internet account may only be used according to your service plan. Unlimited Access accounts may not be used as "dedicated" connections..." "The use of automated intervention-such as software or hardware devices-for the purpose of maintaining a connection to the service is strictly prohibited..." "You may not use IRC bots, or violate any policy of an IRC server, when using our service, including use of IRC-based telephony and videoconferencing..." "Using any manual or electronic means to circumvent any restrictions placed on your phone or to modify without authorization any programming supplied on your phone is a violation of your Agreement..." "We reserve the right to investigate any Internet usage that we believe may violate this Acceptable Use Policy, our Terms and Conditions Agreement for service, or any applicable laws or regulations..." "If such conduct results in damages to Windstream, you may be required to reimburse Windstream for such damages including legal fees, subject to a minimum fee of $500.00..."

Cannot install dsl modem


If the Modem needs drivers, and Windows doesn't already include them, you should have gotten a disc. However, if it's a newer Modem, it may or may not work with XP. XP It is no longer supported, and hackers will be looking for these machines to infect. I recommend you get a newer machine, or don't try to get on the Internet with this one.

How do i install my router i have one care on my computer and it wont let me install my router. How do I bypass this?


disable all firewalls in the computer first(windows and any 3rd party firewall)....then install the router...also disable any software that prevents you from performing any task.... basically for router you need not install any software...all that you need to do is connect the cable coming from the modem to the "wan" port(yellow coloured port) of the router... and connect your computer to any one of the grey coloured(wired) ports of the router... then type 192.168.2.1 in internet explorer and configure your router according to the ISP...the connection type would be dynamic in most of the cases for cable modem/dsl modem....

No network connection for windows xp


Hello kenji, hi, it would really help if you could add more information about the no connection problem, anyway there are several reason why you have no connection;
  1. Bad Lan card, or built in lan port,
  2. Lan card device driver not properly installed, check your driver CD.
  3. loose lan cable. check using a lan cable tester device.
  4. bad router or router setup.
  5. bad dsl or modem setup.
  6. bad telephone connection. check also telephone cable.
  7. no internet service, call your ISP.
  8. if you are using a wireless lan card, check the device.
  9. bad Operating system installation.
  10. check your connectivity setup, is it enabled?
Go through each from one to ten, see which one is the fault.

My Netgear PS121 print server requires disabled firewall (Win XP) to install. After installation, which ports has to be open in Windows Firewall, if I want the printserver to work with Windows XP Firewall...


You may try to set Exceptions on the XP Firewall configuration.

Open Windows Firewall, go to Exceptions tab.
Make sure that File and Printer Sharing is checked.
Then click Add Port.
For Port Number, enter 139 and select TCP.
Do the same for port 445 TCP, 137 UDP, 138 UDP, and 9200 TCP.

My Lexmark 9350 won't print from a wireless notebook.


If you are using a Vista machine. First,make sure you don't have two conflicting firewalls active in your firewall menu. If you have a built in firewall in your dsl or cable modem I suggest not using windows firewall. If you don't have two firewalls active and you are only using Windows firewall, you may have to allow the spool portions of your lexmark program through Windows firewall manually.Check your windows firewall and make sure all parts of the lexmark application are allowed.Also make sure you have installed the latest lexmark drivers on your notebook via lexmark update. I suggest anytime you are installing drivers that you install them using your administrator account. I also recommend unblocking the installation exe before you install. To do this when you download the update, right click on it click on properties click on "unblock" at the bottom then click ok.Right click again on the installation exe and click on administrator. This gives you administrator rights to run and install all portions of the exe file.
