In your address bar, type firefox.com. When it comes up, click the green button to download the latest copy of Firefox. Once it's downloaded, install it again and all should be well.

If you still have trouble, remove the Firefox program, restart your computer, and click on the Firefox download again to reinstall.

And if you wish to connect to Google in the form of Google Account, you can create one by referring to the instructions mentioned on the link below:

Solution #1:
go to dells website (from another computer this one can't)

I already install the d-link but the problem is i cannot connet to the internet


Try to connect directly the computer to your router. If you have internet connection, try to go to the routers page and from there you can setup your wireless connection. To access the the router page, go to start, run, cmd. Type ipconfig. you will get the default gateway. Then type the default gateway on the address bar when you open Internet explorer. These will open the router page. Then enter your username and password. From there you can already configure your wireless connection

Hi, my mozilla firefox is so hard to open , and it takes minutes before it opens .. what will i do ?


HI,

Sometimes it depends on your internet connection speed, if your internet connection is slow, even if its not Mozilla, it will take time for a browser to load up. If it's really your Mozilla browser, you can try to uninstall and reinstall it. Click on Start > Control Panel > Uninstall a Program and then look for Mozilla Firefox then uninstall it, restart the computer after, then Open up your Internet Explorer and on the address bar, type mozilla.com and from their website, download the Mozilla browser again. You can try to download Google Chrome as you alternative browser.


Hope this will help...Your response is very much appreciated...

Hi,
Try to restore the PC to an earlier state by using system restore. If that doesn't help, you'll have to repair the XP installation using the original XP CD

I lost the instructions on how to install a Linksys wireless router. I would like to down load these instructions.


cable setup

This guide is recommended for Cable Internet Service in the USA like Charter, Cox, Comcast, Cable Vision, etc.
  1. First you need to connect the device together. You need to connect your cable modem to the internet port on the back of the router, and the computer should go to one of the 4-port on the router labeled Ethernet (1, 2, 3, 4).
  2. Then turn on the modem first, wait for the lights to stabilize before powering on the Linksys router. Lights that you should have on the router are Power (solid green), Wireless/WLAN (Green sometimes flashing), One of the no. lights where the computer is plugged in (flashing), And the internet light (flashing).
After doing this step there are times that this will already get you online. If the internet will not work, you continue following the steps 3.

3. If the internet is still not working; we will need to adjust a setting on the router setup page. To access the setup page of the router you need to open your internet explorer or Firefox on the computer that is hardwired directly to the router. In the address bar of your browser (Internet Explorer or Firefox) type http://192.168.1.1/ and hit enter or click Go. It will ask you for a username and password. Just type "admin" for the password field and there is no username. If you have ran the setup CD prior to this, then use the password that you have set when were running the setup CD.
4. Once you are in the setup page of your router make sure that the Internet Connection Type is set to Automatic Configuration DHCP, then click the save the settings button at the bottom of the page. After saving the settings, click the sub tab at the very top of the page that says MAC Address Clone. Set it to enable and click the button that will say Clone or Clone your PC's MAC and save the settings again.

5. After doing step 4, do a power cycle. Power cycle is done by turning of the router, modem and computer. Leave them off for a minute, tuned them back on in this order. Modem first wait for the lights to stabilize, then the router wait until the power light become solid. Then turn on the computer. This will get you online through the router.

4. The "Enter Network Password" window will appear.
5. Skip user name and type admin (admin is the default password) as the password, and click OK

4. Skip user name and type admin (admin is the default password) as the password, and click OK
5. On the left of the "Status" page you will see "PPPoE Enabled", and to the right you will see the Status of the connection. It can be one of the following:

- Connecting
- Connected
6. If the status is "Connected" you should be able to browse the web, if not reboot your computer
7. If you get an error message please repeat the "Configuring the router" and "Power Cycling" steps with a different username.
- If all four connections fail then please see our knowledge base articles on the error you're getting.
Once the router is configured correctly you should change the default password and record it for reference.
You should also add the "Enter Network Password" page to the Favorites List, and review the user manual.

Cant get online through firefox or internet explorer explorer. box tells me i have router problems. tried usual reset procedure, got connected and then failed. Three attempts, same result. Comcast tells me...


ya linksys sucks because it has a hardware firewall. Go on to that and disable the hardware firewall. You can type 192.168.1.1 into the internet address bar.

Make sure you have a software firewall such as avg which is a great free one.

Hi,

when you try to dial up to to the dsl network what happens and do you see the two monitors in your task bar at the bottom right hand corner of the screen if you do not then this means the driver for your network card i missing so you would have download it from your computr manufacturers websites support and if you do see the two computers this means that everything is ok but you are gonna need internet explorer, mozilla firefox or opea mini to access the internet. so you may have to let someone download it for you from a site such as www.google.com.

please rate me. thank you.
