    First, start by identifying your firewall. If it's some kind of residential, routing appliance made by Netgear, D-Link, Linksys, etc., it's probably not preventing you from going out. Does your computer have an IP address? Is it on the same network as the firewall?

No enternet access


Check the wireless router and high-speed modem.

If the two are not powered on, or if the Ethernet cable connected the two is not completely inserted into both connection ports, you are unable to access the Internet on the Acer Aspire One laptop computer.


Activate the wireless Internet connection on the laptop computer.

Right-click the wireless icon on the desktop, then choose "Enable" from the pop-up menu.


Without activating the wireless receiver on the Acer Aspire One, the laptop is unable to detect any wireless network.


Select the appropriate network you wish to connect to.


Your computer may be attempting to connect to a different Internet connection, preventing you from access the network you desire.


Right-click the wireless icon, select "Search for available wireless networks," then choose the network you want to access.


Restart the computer.


The system may have booted and failed to detect the wireless receiver.

Restarting the computer corrects this issue.


hope this helps

Sonicwall client won't connect to the internet


The default VPN policy rules prevent LAN access, also known as split-tunneling, since this creates a security risk (the ability of the VPN session to be hijacked or compromised through a covert channel).

If you are not the system admin, you need to talk to your system admin. If you are the system admin, then you need to review the documentation with respect to

Help I'm being harrassed online?


if you look in start - settings - control panel you will find an icon named windows firewall
This is part of windows
If you double click on it you will see 3 tabs. Important for you is tab called exceptions. There you will find yahoo . If you check it no more firewall message wil shown when accessing yahoo.

Be sure if you have router too there is another firewall.


P.S.
sdef_definition.gif - A firewall is a set of related programs, located at a network gateway server, that protects the resources of a private network from users from other networks. (The term also implies the security policy that is used with the programs.) An enterprise with an intranet that allows its workers access to the wider Internet installs a firewall to prevent outsiders from accessing its own private data resources and for controlling what outside resources its own users have access to.

Limewire firewall


Hi amy_maguires

If you have recently got a new router, there would be a firewall on the router blocking the required ports for LimeWire to operate. To get around this, refer to your Router's user manual and find out how to access it and then unblock those certain ports. PLEASE NOTE: Do not attempt to unblock all the ports as this will increase the risk of getting your router and perhaps your computers infected with viruses.

If that is not your problem, you may be using and ISP (Internet Service Provider) that has blocked those ports as downloading music uses a lot of bandwidth which is a burden on them. If you have Satelite Internet, this is probably the case. You can try and resolve this by contacting your ISP and negotiating a price for them to unplock the port for you.

Please remember to give this solution a FixYa! rating.

Happy Easter

Accessing a VPN through a BGAN should be fairly simple. It sounds like some of the settings for the VPN might have changed. If you changed any settings on your computer, or if you have added any type of security settings or firewall. If you need any assistance with your BGAN let us know. We do sales of Satellite internet terminals such as Thrane & Thrane, Wideye Sabre, Hughes, Fleet Broadband, and much more. We also do repair of Broadband satellite terminals.

Sonicwall Pro 300 DMZ Problem


If you're within a network and try connecting to computers on it with the WAN public IP, it simply won't work - you must use the network IP. On an external Internet connection, it should connect fine to the public IP. If you have access to an external machine (remote desktop), or if you know of an FTP proxy, you can try it that way. I also believe http://www.webftp.co.uk/ a web based FTP client would act as somewhat of a proxy, you could try that with the public IP and see how you go.
