Frequent VPN connection drop on my wifi


If you can't connect via the Internet to your workplace network from home (or another location), check the items in this list:

  • Make sure that you typed the virtual private network (VPN) server name exactly as provided by your network administrator.

  • You must have an active Internet connection for a VPN connection to work.

  • If your modem is external, make sure that the modem power is turned on.

  • Contact your network administrator to make sure that you have the appropriate connection and domain permissions on the remote access server.

  • This could be a certificate problem. For assistance, contact your network administrator.

  • A VPN connection won't work with an active Winsock proxy client. Contact your network administrator to make sure the Winsock proxy client is not enabled.

  • If you know the IP address (for example: 131.107.10.25) of a website, type that address in the address bar of your web browser and press Enter. If this works, there is probably a Domain Name System (DNS) resolution problem. For assistance, contact your network administrator.

  • If you have special software that's required or installed by your workplace, it could be part of the problem. For assistance, contact your network administrator.

  • If you know the IP address (for example: 131.107.10.25) of your VPN server, type that address for the VPN connection, and then press Enter. If this works, there is probably a DNS resolution problem. For assistance, contact your network administrator.

  • There could be a problem with the server you're trying to connect to. For assistance, contact your network administrator.

If you try to connect with a VPN connection and you see a message that says "The local computer does not support encryption" and has the error code 741, it's possible that the encryption that your computer uses doesn't match the encryption used by the VPN server. To change the encryption settings so that your computer uses the recommended setting of 3DES, follow these steps:

  1. Open Connect to a Network by clicking the network icon (eff2d36c-9e0d-4d1a-9859-3af14fa4ccfc_73.jpg or da12251d-1e9a-4032-afae-009876c6c5a3_80.jpg) in the notification area.

  2. Right-click the VPN connection, and then click Properties.

  3. Click the Security tab.

  4. Under Data encryption, select Maximum strength encryption (disconnect if server declines), and then click OK.

  5. Open Connect to a Network by clicking the network icon (eff2d36c-9e0d-4d1a-9859-3af14fa4ccfc_73.jpg or da12251d-1e9a-4032-afae-009876c6c5a3_80.jpg) in the notification area.

  6. Click the VPN connection, and then click Connect to try connecting again.

How to setup a virtual server on router


Virtual Server, also referred to as Port forwarding or port mapping can be setup with the router.

The setup of the virtual server depends on what you want to setup.

Virtual server is used to allow computers not on your internal network or computers on the internet to access a resource or service on the internal network.

For example:

Say you have an FTP on your internal network that you want people on the internet to access. To set that up go to the virtual server screen on the router and specify the IP address of the computer on the internal network that has the FTP server on it. The private port that you want to specify would be 21 because port 21 is FTP. The public port could be any number you want it to be, for ease of explanation lets just say it is also 21, that is the port the public would use to access the machine. For a computer on the internet to access the FTP server on the internal machine they would open up a web browser and type FTP://(WAN IP ADDRESS, found on main status page of router screen):21.

A better example would be FTP://1.1.1.1:21

I recently purchased a used computer to replace my old one. I have not been able to receive or send emails using my old email address - mmaren@sbcglobal.net. How do I go about restablishing my email...


You must contact your server by phone.Or pay an internet cafe a few pence and email your server and tell them you need instructions sent to you on how to do it.By the way have you set up an internet connection?If yes go to your server email button see what happens here.If it says can't connect to server you've got to set up an email service on your new computer.Go to tools on the internet explorer or whoever your browser is,and first make sure your home page is in the top box.i.e.www.virginmedia.com.If youe using XP on the new computer you should have an email link on your destop or press start button and it should be at the top of that page.Click onto it and follow the instructions.But......you have to have to be connected to the internet.

I can't connect to the internet with my new computer. I bought a new computer. I can connect with my old computer but my new says limited connectivity. it is password protected and i entered the password...


Make sure your new computer is set to automaticly obtain ip settings.
If thats not the problem, I would turn off the wireless security for a moment and see if you can succesfully connect then.

Can`t get full access to the net on TalkTalk with 2wire 2700hgb


You did everything correctly so far, and your 2wire is getting the signal and info it needs. The unable to contact config server error is not a problem, as thats just 2wires update server, which wont hurt anything if not found. The password defaults back to 8 because of security issues, its still the same one you entered, so thats fine also. Now one thing you should try is the only thing different about the 2 routers. The 2wire has a built in firewall in it, try turning it off for your computer. Click on the firewall tab, then firewall settings. Select your computer and put the dot in DMZ mode and save it. Then restart the pc and see if it works after that. Other then that it could be a problem with the 2wire itself, since you are authenticating fine with your Internet provider.
