  11. In the Printer name field, put the DNS hostname of the printer.

Whenever i log in to it displays service unavailable

Hello there,

Make sure you have anternet connection on that computer as is up and running from my end. Try refreshing your page by continuously pressing F5. Also, try using a different browser. If you are using IE, the try using Firefox and vice versa.

If the above does not work, try clearing up your temporary cache files and browsing history. Then flush your DNS by opening a command prompt and typing:

ipconfig /flushdns

then press enter.

I hope this helps. Thank you for using FixYa. Merry Christmas.

I am getting a DNS Error when trying to log onto the internet..

Just to cover the basics
Are you sure you have correct IP Address for your wireless connection with the correct security passcodes?
Try using the wireless connection wizard in control panel?
Not to be funny BUT are you sure it is your modem/router you are connected to?

Is there a known problem with the HP J4680 and IE8?

The problem is usually with the web site being printed. Various website designers use different methods to create their pages. Some use tables and frames which present a problem for the print software.

1) Wherever possible, look for a "Printer Friendly" version of the web page

2) Failing this, from the IE print icon drop-down box (down arrow) choose "Print Preview" > Click Page Setup icon (gear icon) > Select page settings of your choice. Try printing by clicking the printer icon.

3) When encountering a webpage created with frames: Click IE print icon drop-down box (down arrow) choose "Print Preview" > Click Page Setup icon (gear icon) > Select "As laid out on screen" or "All frames individually" or "Only selected frame". Try printing by clicking the printer icon.

I hope this information was helpful.

When trying to print e-mails from the internet

Looks like your printer driver is crashing.
If it's the driver that's causing problem, try to find an updated driver on the manufacturer's website.
Also, to make sure, I would try a different browser - if you are using IE, try installing Firefox, opening your e-mail and printing. Or Opera, if you prefer.

Cannot open yahoo mail

You should be able to see those emails after hitting F5 from the keyboard a couple of times.

Also, try clearing your cache:

For IE, click Tools, Internet Options. In the general tab, under Delete browsing history, delete ALL.

Further, flush your DNS. Open a command prompt, then type:

ipconfig /flushdns

I have switched from DSL to Cable high speed internet. How do I hook my router up for that?

You can log into your router's page ie.. or reasonable factsimile. under connection type remove PPPOE (usually for DSL) and select DNS (Dynamic Name Sever) then accept defaults and enter any other info it might demand. log out after the router confirms that the setting has changed. Now try to make a new connection to your cable's server. Good Luck.
