Question about IceBox (HL1214) PC Desktop

2 Answers

I've had my Icebox for 2 1/2 years. Can't log on to internet.

I've done everything I can think of, as well as had help from computer-smart people, but I can't get connected to the internet. Sometimes it gets a low signal, but it won't connect. I was almost in direct line with my router. I'm so disgusted. I love the tv, but the computer part STINKS!!

    Ok. In response to pgmadhav, never mind what I've tried to do to connect my Icebox to the internet. I have cable high-speed internet so what do I need to do to connect to the internet?

You have two options when connecting your Icebox to Internet (network). Depending on PCMCIA card plugged in back of your unit, wired or wireless.
If wired, you need a network cable from your unit to router.
If wireless, and assuming your router is wireless, you need to configure wireless connection settings correctly in your Icebox.
Email info@lordantech.com and ask for programming instructions.

I do not fully understand your problem I think you are trying to connect a wireless connection from a router to computer if that is the case you need to do this with a USB lead to establish your settings and once the connection is established then you can shift the computer

    I have had a Wireless printer within half a metre of the wireless router and a Laptop within 2 metres Once I went through the setup procedure with the USB connected and established the settings (The USB is used to exchange settings) I was able to reboot disconnect the USB and go anywhere with the laptop and see the signal strength change If you need detail instructions for this please reply

Okay, you have the same issue I used to have. I inherited a laptop from my mother, and she was the second owner. It was loaded with programs I didn't need, and had a zillion files tucked away. If you can go into your control panel and access the add or remove programs, go through it and remove every stinkin' one of the optional programs you don't ever use, or can do without. Be sure you know what you are removing. Next --and this may sound silly, especially if you have done it already-- you need to go into your homepage in your internet connection and clear all browsing history from every browser you use. These can include google, msn, explorer, firefox, etc. I find if I don't clear my browser frequently, my computer is a real *******. The next obvious step would be to get into all my documents files and delete any old files, such as photos that you don't want, a huge music collection, etc. I have all of my music stored on my D drive, because it has the same memory as my C drive, but is nearly empty. You can store and easily access all your entertainment files in D if you have a large capacity. I would perform this test: from your start menu, open my computer and right click your c, or main hard drive and click on properties. This should give you info on how much storage space you have left on the disc. If it is less than 50 percent, you may need to delete some old trash. Do the same with your d drive. If all else fails, you can go into your recovery program and see if you can wipe the computer, but that is a last resort. I had to do this with mine so I could program it to recognize me as the computer administrator. I was tired of fighting with a zillion hidden files I couldn't get into, much less locate. Hope this will help.

I've been using my dad's computer since my is broke and I would like to get yahoo mail without interupting his, how may I do that I have a e-mail address already it's ...


Shannon, generally opening the same website with a login (like Yahoo or Google) multiple times with the same browser is not possible. Usually the website asks if you want to log the first person out and log back in with the 2nd person's username/password.
There are a couple of possible workarounds that you might try that should work.
1) Launch a 2nd instance of the browser. If you use Internet Explorer for example, double click the icon for it again and launch a 2nd instance of it. Then in that 2nd browser try to log into your own yahoo account. That may 'trick' the site into allowing you to log in that way while keeping his mail logged in using the 1st instance of the same browser.
2) Use a 2nd browser. You could also install Google Chrome, Firefox or some other browser on the same computer. Now, first launch Internet Explorer and have him log into his email. Then launch the 2nd browser product and you log into your own email. This usually works as the browser sessions are separate so the websites 'think' they are coming from different computers and allow multiple logins.
Hope this response helps you out.
Best of luck!

D-Link wireless router has been greta, until yesterday- the Roku boxes say my router strength is excellant, but all of a sudden, the box can no loger connect to the Internet even when I select my router-...


The router most likely is not synced properly with the modem. Your computer might still have a strong connection to the router, but isn't getting an IP address. Power everything down, including the modem and restart in this order:
1. Modem - allow a minute for it to run thru its diagnostics 2. Router 3. Computer
Once you've done this, if you're ISP isn't having outages, you should have the internet working again on your computer. If this doesn't work, call your provider.

Beyond Icebox computer


Depends on if you are trying to use a wired or wireless connection. Make sure if you have a wireless card that it is a compatible one. There are only a select few that will function properly on the icebox. If you are using a hard wired connection then make sure you have gone into the connection settings on the icebox to configure the internet and what network to use. When you do this you will be able to connect to your network and surf the web.

Because we would need to ask you a whole lot of questions about how you are connecting to the Internet, I think it would be simpler if you were to go to this link I list below.  Use a friends or the library computer to print out the details. There's a lot of information and it seems to cover every detail you need to answer your question.

If you still have problems respond back and we will try to walk you through it.  But I think you will get your answer.
