I bought a new samsung led 5 series tv but it keeps telling me i got no signal. the only connection i have is the antenna cable but it keeps telling me i got no signal even though iv done the whole auto...


Hi there,

Do you live in a house or some sort of complex? If you live in a home, then I would suggest verifying the connection to the outside antenna. If you live in a complex (apartment, condo, etc.) then the possibility exists that there is no outside connection (to any broadcast source) except for cable.

Good luck with that TV, my parents bought one in January and the picture is amazing.

Hope this helps some.

Hi!

We need to isolate and troubleshoot from wall out. First, you need to check that your internet line is working by connecting your computer directly to your internet line (take off the router from the scene). If that doesn't work, you need to call your ISP to get you up and running first with your PC. As soon as it's up that's the only time you can add the router to the network.

Once confirmed, follow steps from this site:

2 routers. Can i have two routers within the same workgroup. My wireless router will not work from one end of the house to the other. I need to have more than one wireless transmitter so my laptop will...


Hi,

Yes you can have the setup in your workgroup in multiple ways.

Solution1:-
The logic will be making your new wireless router to act as a wireless booster which will receive the signal from your old wireless Router and then retransmits the signal.But this needs some extra configuration on your new wireless router

1. You have to select the WDS ( wireless Distribution System) mode in the new wireless router.
2. Set the same SSID on the new wireless router.
3. In the new wireless router config page , search for the wireless signals and select your old router from that list.

The WDS mode tells the new wireless router to send/receive the wireless signal to the old wireless router.

Solution 2:-

Connect your old wireless router LAN interface to a network switch through a CAT5e UTP cable and the new wireless router to another port of the switch (use a cable which can be extended to the other room where you want the new wireless router to be placed).

Configure the same SSID you have set in the old wireless router.

Best Regards

Im just trying to get wifi and interet but i cant get a access point in range wat do i do


Hi :)

In order to obtain wireless internet you need the following

1) Wireless Access Point.
2) A device capable of getting these signals

this is a common mistake when you first obtain wifi. Although the signal is wireless it still has to come from somewhere. Wifi is generally a short range system (I say generally because there is that new "Internet Stick" thing that Rogers? is renting and it is the same wifi you would have @ home but its distributed accross thier towers so you have internet most of the time from anywhere). You still need ot go and get Internet Service into your home, then distribute that signal wirelessly accross the house (in reallity its more than the house the point is the signal is being distributed from somewhere nearby) VIA Wireless Router. Even if you could find an Access Point 90% chances that the system is locked and needs a pw so that people cant just steal another persons signal and bog them down and pay for their internet basically.

Now. If that option isnt suitable for now you can obtain Free Wifi Signal from a number of places

1) Free WiFi is offered @ most public/government buildings (ie Library, Courthouse, Registries, etc etc)

2) Appartment buildings and Condoes are always a good place to check for an unprotected network to piggy back off (this isnt as shady as it sounds if its temporary, infact WiFi systems have backups in them that auto detect and connect to unprotected networks should yours lose signal for any reason)

Note Wi Fi systems signal strength and speed are affected by a couple factors

1) The strength of the incoming internet signal (signal is reduced the longer it flows in the lines to get to you or your pc) (IE long cords between wall and modem or device etc etc etc) Signal strength is also dependant on what you purchase/pay monthly of course (IE DSL Dial Up Or Cable)

2) the quality (usually depends on the price of the unit) of the Router you purchase and its ability to distribute that signal at distance

3) The Wireless Adaptor the device has and its range (depends on price and quality of that unit)

4) Distance from the router is a given but from what ive learned Copper Piping and Copper wires in houses / condos/ apartments tend to block signal strength.

Need driver CD for HP3740


Hi

The printer doesn't support windows 98. supported systems are:

» Microsoft Windows Vista
» Microsoft Windows Vista (64-bit)
» Microsoft Windows XP
» Microsoft Windows XP x64
» Microsoft Windows 2000
» Mac OS X
» Mac OS 9
» Linux

Drivers are available at this page below:

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareCategory?product=401496&lc=en&cc=us&dlc=en&submit.y=3&submit.x=8&lang=en&cc=us

Note that there are no drivers for 98 and it won't be simple to get the printer to work with the 98.. I would recommend upgrading to 2000 or windows xp. if your computer is from 1998 it might be better to buy a new computer.

Todays printers don't work with 10 year old computers anymore.

linux would work on the computer for sure, and so would the printer but using linux is quite complex, you would need to get someone to install it for you and make it look as much like windows as possible, its a whole new system..

Let me know if you need anything else.



Thanks,
Ekse

Wireless router


The answer to both your questions is yes. The laptop and the 98 does not care what router they are pluged into, the settings on them will not be affected. Only if you change the adaptors on the the 98 or your XP's will the 98 or XP need any adjustment. (unless you change the WEP key, then it is just a matter of putting the new WEP key in the xp and 98 machines.)

Windows 98 changing from dialup to high speed


You can do this, but I would not recommend it. Windows 98 is very susceptible to malware. You can get things just by going to the wrong website. These are called drive by downloads. It will get very slow from all of the malware running on the system very fast.

Look into downloading a Linux distribution like Ubuntu, or PCLinuxOS. You will be able to find a linux distro that will fit on your old computer and be very secure. Look at Distrowatch for many more options.

It is not possible to use Windows 98 on the Internet and remain secure. If you post the model/serial number of the compaq computer, or its stats then we could tell you if you can upgrade it to XP or Windows 2000, but this may not be practical on older equipment.
