You will need to set up an internet connection again put the cd provided by your ISP internet service provider and follow the prompts
You will have to open up your network connections Click start control panel network connections this may vary depending on your operating system look for local area connection if you see a red x or a yellow exclamation or question mark ! ? you will need to update or install the driver or it could be firewalled. Make sure your antivirus program is not blocking the internet connection. If you are trying to connect through a modem/router you it should have come with a disk then you might have to connect the usb lead to your modem to get a connection then Click start control panel administration tools computer management device manager scroll to network adapters should see a yellow question ? exclamation mark ! or a red X right click install drivers. The driver might be on the disc supplied by your ISP internet service provider or the motherboard disc Click start type cmd press enter you will be in DOS mode type in ipconfig press enter you will see all o fyour internet connection details type in your default gateway adress into your internet search should read something like 10.0.0.138 Make sure you Ethernet/internet is enabled in bios restart your computer during the boot up process you will see on your screen a certain key to press to enter set up (BIOS) press and hold that key to enter bios using arrow keys navigate to integrated peripherals look for SiS On Chip Pci Device press enter scroll to SiS 10/100m press enter make sure its "Enabled"imake sure its enabledPci device arrows key scroll to nstalled. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: i dont know how to set back to factory settings

First restart your Toshiba laptop. Press either "F1," "0," or "F8" to be taken to your computer's hard drive utility screen. The key command differs depending on the model Toshiba computer that you own.

Select "Restore Original Factory Image" from the list of options in System Recovery. Verify that you want to continue the process by clicking "Yes," then click "Next".

Restart the Toshiba laptop once the factory restore process has been completed. You will be prompted to enter information such as the date, time and language preferences.

How do I set my tablet back just one day?


It only works, when you don't have any contact with the internet. Then in settings you can change date and time, but once connected to the net it will sync to the internet time and will correct the date and time, according to what region you live. (if that was setup too.)

No internet on TEW-672 GR (TrendNet) Router after i resettted it


once you have reset the router back to factory settings(using the pinhole at the back of the router and not just restart), you have to re-enter or re-configure your router for the internet connection depending upon your Internet Service Provider.Please contact your Internet Service Provider for the settings, use the CD that came with the router and re-enter the settings, once done, just turn off the router and turn it again. The internet will work.
The settings should be
  1. The connection type - PPPoe or PPPoA (ATM)
  2. Log in details for your ISP (username and password)
    These are the two main settings, apart from these, some more settings could be provided by your internet service provider. if they do not provide it, reply with your country, the name of your Internet Service Provider(like AT&T or Verizon etc)

I purchased a new EL 1850G EMachine. I have installed the software for a Belkin USB to connect to a Verizon wireless 5 Spot device. The software installs correctly, the device indicates the computer...


Hello Linda!
It sounds like a firewall is blocking the connection. I assume you`re using Windows, so go to Control Panel > Windows Firewall and disable it.The next step is, if your not using a proxy. Open up your browser, if you`re using Firefox go Tools>Options > Advanced> Settings... (Connection) and make sure the 'No proxy' option is checked, restart your browser. For Chrome go to Options>Under the Hood>Change proxy settings (Network) a new window will come up from here you select LAN settings(Note: This will change the proxy settings for your whole system) and select automatic if it`s on manual. Finally disable your antivirus software just for a short amount of time, and try to browse the web, just to make sure that it`s not interfering with the connection.

Connecting my PS3 to the internet using a 3G Verizon Broadband


Unfortunately the PS3 will not be recieving internet through this device, the USB connectors are set up to only work with PC or MAC specifically for that reason that gamers cannot use their Xbox or Playstation, and that is because Verizon offers a Wireless router cell phone data device which costs almost a thousand dollars, definately not worth it.

Need help reset my verizon 700wx internet


You can reset factory default, why don't you try to create another account with the same settings as the the original 777 (without the other numbers).

Start
settings
connection tab
connections
Add a new modem connection (here you enter the same set up as the default 777)

You probably have to contact Verizon to get a password

Hope this helps...

Settings must have changed and not not changed back, set your friends settings as default settings. He may have accidently reset something etc.

A quick solution is to go to
System Restore and reset it back a day before you gave it to your friend.

go to START > PROGRAMS >
ACCESSORIES > SYSTEM TOOLS and you'll find SYSTEM RESTORE there. Click on it and find the option to set your Notebook to an EARLIER TIME. After selecting that from the list find a date BEFORE YOU LOANDED THE NOTEBOOK TO YOUR FRIEND and left click on it and follow the instructions and your COmputer will restore the system to that earlier date (it could be 1 day before you loaned it). You will not lose any files etc.

After it goes through a cycle of rebooting etc and it resets to the earlier date, your Network should work as it did before you loaned it to your friend.

If you have trouble finding SYSTEM RESTORE go to HELP and look for a link there.

Good Luck !
Cheers !

Internet wont connect


Try leaving both modem and router off for 10 minutes. Turn them both back on and leave them alone for 15 minutes, does it work now? If not, make not of all of your custom settings (if any), try resetting the router back to factory defaults, restore any custom settings and try again. I had the same problem with a linksys and it worked after factory reset.
