Question about Computers & Internet

I cannot connect to port 3997

I have just moved into a new flat with a new internet service provider (x-net). I use the voice chat program Ventrilo on a daily basis, using the IP 202.60.88.170 and the port 3997. With my new internet service provider I cannot connect to port 3997. I attempted to connect to this channel using my flatmate's computer and it did not work, so i know it is not a problem with my computer. I successfully connected to another server that Ventrilo provides, so i know it is not a problem with the program. I ran a tracer prgram and was sucessfully able to connect to the sever, but when i ran a telnet to attempt to connect to the server and the port, i could not do so. I contacted my ISP and told them of my problem and they say that it is not an issue on their side as they do not block this port. They suggested it is an issue with the modem or router. I do not know how to solve this problem, I am extremely frustrated and at my wit's end. Does anyone know why I cannot connect to this port, and what I need to do to be able to connect to it?

I would first try to connect to other ventrilo servers on other ports. Make sure it's not your vent program. Next I would make sure you are not having issue with your windows firewall or a third-party firewall (Symantec/Norton/McAfee etc). Disable them temporarily to test. Because you can not connect via telnet tells me something is blocking your port. How about the router/firewall? Is it new? If so, try replacing it with a known good one.

The following computer resources are required to restablish the networking experiences. First, a computer that has modern features preferably least without malfunctions. For example, complementary resources that makes the experince acheiveable includes having external computer speakers to capture and out put sound that may be communicated by members on the establishment. Also, the computer woould require a microphone to make possible voice messenger communcations. Recent computer networking innovations makes possible audio transmittion also known as voice telecommuncations that only is achievable a microphone as input device. Internet networking communcatios makes possible video conferencing only requiring for the cameras known as webcams to be attached to the computer. Acquriing from retail computer network cameras may have builtin voice recorders. Circumpectively, the hardware required to complement the computer prior to establishing messanging telecommuncations in sum are output speakers, input microphones, display capture cameras or webcameras attainable at retail. The following are networking resources required to setup the messenger. First, the computer has to have an internet connection to allow several computers that require communcitions to capture simi;ar signals. For example, internet service providers like at&t, verizon, t-mobile provides the most expedited connectivities between computers that require media transfers either as with messanger systems. Consulting with the most effective networking providers guarantees the fastest, relaible and safest networks to achieve mesanger services. Once the computer has an internet working connectivity to capture available computers within the vicinity areas either at home or office or elsewhere, the prorgam installations becomes possible. Usually the internet require a browser that allows to message between computers. For example, www.msn.com has the internet browser called internet explorer. Once displayed on the computer screen, the user searches with the spaces on the browser by typing msn messanger request to download on the computer messanger programs. The messenger program has to be dowloaded onto the computer that has the feature buttons to teleconference or telecommuncate. Prior to acquring messenger programs, contact a known person that has similar computer structures to establish the messenger program. Opon completion of the messenger download on the computer. The interneted signals are required by several persons with similar features. However, the first person to message usuing the messanger program would be the person that was informed to expect to log on their site to wait messages since a setup was underway. Assuming that several persons already have messanger services on the internet services provider that has been provided like at&t, t-mobile or version. Once the msn messenger were downloaded on the computer. The new structure has to be navigatored usually cliking the search for members or contacts to become friends or messanger buddies. Usually, persons on the mesanger network may not necessarily know each other. However, send messeges to contacts on the network requesting to become consigns. Once a membership request has been send, a wait until reply that makes assurance that commucations on friendly level would become achievable. A send messege to chat buddy on the messenger receiving a reply provide the green light to store the contact as consign for regular telecommucations. Usually the networking experince is more acheiveable when every person has cameras, voice microphones, and has computer compartibilties to prevent message impediments. Remember that the internet is a dynamic experiecne requiring hardwares, softwares, time schedules, and an exploration computer habit to achieve excitabilities. Goodluck and have fun with the experince.

I am using DELL STUDIO laptop with Windows VISTA and recently i am facing issues in voice chat (Yahoo Messenger, Gtalk, Skype etc..). At the time of online voice and video chat we were not able to hear...


Most likely, it's not due to the computer, it's due to bandwidth. Either you're direct connection to the internet, or the bandwidth you pay for from your internet service provider...
1.) So, if you're connected wirelessly, try connecting directly with a CAT5(or 5E, or 6) ethernet cable, that will speed your connection up A LOT.
2.) If you ARE connected by cable, check your download/upload limits set by your internet service provider. If you have only dial-up, it probably won't be fast enough. You'd need at least a DSL or ADSL connection, cable broadband is best.
Hope that helps!

I can't browse the internet or connect to online games on the two PCs in my house, but I can on my Mac. All 3 computers are connected to the same router. On my personal PC I'm able to use a voice-chat...


This could be a virus, particularly as it happenned while you were browsing. Have you got anti-virus software?

It's difficult to advise without more information, but if you are using Inernet Explorer you could try looking at Tools>Internet Options click the Connections tab then the LAN Settings button.

Have a look at the Proxy Server box (bottom half of the dialogue box). Normally the Use Proxy Server should be UNchecked (unless you are using a proxy server, which is unlikely if you are using a private home network). If the box is checked, uncheck it. Now try to connect to the internet again.

If this worked, you have a virus that will probably cause the same problem next time you reboot. You will need to run an antivirus program to remove it. Try Malwarebytes or AVG Free (google it) if you don't have antivirus on your PC.

Of course this might not be the solution, but a good first option.

I will try to help further if necessary.

My computer is not detecting microphone when making internet phone calls.


Troubleshooting - Can't get voice chat to work.
Here are a few things you should know and check for to get the voice chat to work. · Firewalls - the voice chat feature may not work well behind company firewalls. Even though you can get other features of Yahoo! Messenger to work, the voice chat feature uses separate technology and may not work as well.
· Check connection - When you enter into a voice chat with friends, each participant should take turns trying to press and hold down the Press to Talk button. Everyone else should see their name turn red when they do that. If you see their names turn red, but don't hear anything, it may be a microphone / speaker problem, or it may be that we have more bugs that we need to fix. If you don't see their name turn red, you are probably having connection problems and that's why it's not working.
· Get the latest version - Please make sure that everyone who is using the voice chat feature has the latest version.
· Check mic and speakers - Check that your microphone works and that your speakers are turned on. Here's how:
* make sure the mic is plugged in correctly.
* adjust the mic properties.
- go to the control panel (start button -- settings -- control panel)
- click on the multimedia icon
- you should see a tab for audio
- make sure that the recording volume is set high.
* you can test your mic. by doing the following.
- Click the Windows Start button, then go to Programs, then Accessories, then Multimedia, then click on Sound Recorder
- A new window called Sound Recorder will pop up. Click on the record button (a red circle), then say a few words, then click the stop button (black square).
- Click the play button (black triangle).
If you can hear yourself fine, then your microphone is okay. If you can't hear your voice using Sound Recorder, the voice chat should not work either.
