    Woah! That's crazy!



    Perhaps try a new cable? I can't imagine a short would do that, but maybe?



    Second to that, go to control panel, administrative tools, event viewer. See what the last few messages were and post them here perhaps? It might give a clue as to what is going on.

I cannot load Web pages but wifi is on. Am using windows 8. What can I do to solve the problem


Wifi might be 'on' but make sure you are connected to a network.

If you are then make sure that any other wireless devices can connect to the internet first.

If they can then on your laptop do the following:

Hold the windows button on your laptop (it looks like a flag) and press 'R'.

This will open a black command prompt window. Inside this type the following:
ping www.google.com
and press enter

If the result shows it receives 4 responses then you have an issue with Internet Explorer and I would download Firefox browser onto another computer, save it to a memory stick and install it on your laptop.

If the result shows no response then you have some kind of networking issue. Try plugging in a network cable from the back of your router into your laptop and try again. If that works then you will need to try reinstalling the wireless drivers, if it doesn't, then I would reinstall Windows.

I can not connect to the Internet. I have WiFi connection but can't do anything else


Plug your computer/laptop directly into router. Can you get to the Internet then?
If you CANNOT get to the internet when your computer is plugged into the router, reboot your router. If it doesn't have a power switch, unplug it. Leave it unplugged. Next, you need to figure out if you have another modem for DSL or Cable. If you do have another DSL or Cable modem, unplug that device to. After 5 minutes has elapsed for both devices being unpowered, plug in the DSL or Cable modem to the power source. Keep the router unplugged from power. After your DSL or Cable modem has powered up for 5 minutes, plug your router into the power source. Wait a few minutes. Reboot your computer/laptop. Try the wireless connection again.
If you CAN get to the internet when your computer is plugged into the router. Reboot your computer. Try to connect again. If you cannot connect after rebooting, make sure you are connecting to YOUR OWN wireless access point and not someone else's.
Do you have other computers/laptops/wifi devices that CAN/CANNOT connect to your wireless / access the Internet?

I can't get online to google or anything because the laptop will not come out of the offline.


If you are on a wireless network with a router, power cycle all your equipment to get it back in sync with each other.

1. Turn off the power to your router( 1st) , your modem (2nd) and pc (3rd). in this order. Wait a few min.

2. Take out the ethernet cable from the router (until your modem reacquires a signal to the internet) and if the pc is connected to the router unplug the Ethernet cable from the back of the pc.

3. Turn on the power to your router wait for all the lights to come back up. Then turn on your modem and wait for all the lights to come back up and reacquire a signal. Once all the lights are on the modem, plug the ethernet cable back into the Internet jack of your router.

4. Turn on your laptop. After Windows loads and you get to your desktop, plug the Ethernet cable in to the back of the pc( if you connect wired) or try to connect to your wireless network.

5. Then open your browser and type in this web address:

Make sure all the wires are connected properly. 1.-Unplug your modem and router from the power supply. Wait 1 minute. 2.-Plug your modem back to the power and wait for all the lights to stop flashing. 3.-Plug your router back to the power and wait for the lights to stop flashing
Follow these steps and your internet should be working again!

No internet on PC when cables going through router


Hello there,

You have to start from the beginning and my solution would be:

1) Remove any connections(also don't forget to turn of wifi on your laptop) to router and except the power cord. With the unit powered ON locate the reset pinhole on the back of router.

2) Press and hold reset button for at least 15 secs. then release, wait for 20-30 secs. before the router can completely rebooted.

3) Configure your Computer IP address to “Obtain an IP address automatically” .

4) Connect internet cable to router on port labeled "WAN". Connect PC to any LAN ports available.

5) Now lets configure wireless router. Open any browser you have (IE, Firefox, Chrome, Safari, etc.). On the address bar type: "192.168.1.1" (without quotes). Default username: admin ; default password: admin click "OK".

6) Go through "SETUP WIZARD" until you reach the "Setup WAN Interface" page. On "WAN Access Type:" select "DHCP" then click next.

7) You may configure your "Basic Wireless Settings" to Public or Private until finished configuring.

8) On "Operation Mode" be sure you operate on "Gateway" mode.

That's it! Hope this helps.

I f I connect hotel internet via Apple USB 2.0 Ethernet Adapter to my MacBook Air, internet after few minutes disconnected, to connect again i take out the cable, and then plug in, usually internet start...


Try turning off Airport. Your computer may be finding a wireless network and automatically switching to it, and getting an intermittent signal. Just a guess, but for a good ethernet connection you want to disable the Airport searching feature anyway.
Open the System Preferences application, select "Network" and right on the top left of the resulting window there's a pretty big button that will either say "Turn Airport On" or "Turn Airport Off" - just turn it off if it's not already ...

Hope this helps!

My power won't turn on. The battery and the cable


Check the power adapter with a multi-meter, the voltage of the power plug that plugs into the power socket on the laptop should be slight higher than the voltage that is printed on the label on the adapter.
If it is faulty, there are replacement power supplies available on the Internet or at your friendly computer shop.
If the adapter is OK then the power socket on the laptop is faulty or this socket has a dry solder joint connection on the motherboard.
You can test this by wriggling the power plug when it is connected to the laptop, if the charge LED flickers and if you hold this plug in a certain position the charge LED stays on without flickering, then the power socket is faulty.
This can be repaired, but requires the laptop to be completely
disassembled. I suggest you get a quote first.

Connecting my dynamode 6004 W G1 wireless router to modem


Cable modems and routers must be turned on in a specific way. First, unplug both the router and modem. Next, plug the ethernet cable from the modem, into the cable router, and unplug the cable from the modem to the computer. Next, turn on the modem, and wait for all of the lights to stay static (usually there's 4 lights, the main one we're interested in, is the status light). Next, plug in and turn on your router. You should now be able to access the router and configure it for your internet connection.

LCD Display behaving badly


It sounds like the ribbon connector or flexible connector is not seated quite right. I would open up the unit again and carefully inspect this or any other cable that you had unplugged.  Reseat these properly and power it up again.

These cables can be very easy to damage if not replaced properly. Take special care.
