I have an Asia notebook and it won't connect to


your question lacks sufficient information for anyone to offer you an exact solution. the best I can suggest is that you follow some general troubleshooting steps. make sure your internet service is active, properly connected, your router is powered on, etc. if possible, plug in a different computer to see if it too has the same problems connecting. if so, the issue lies with your service, not the computer. if another computer can get online, then start checking for software issues on the system that has the trouble. to get into addressing how to do that, you'll need to provide more details including which operating system you're using, how you're connecting your computer to the internet service, what kind of service you have and who provides it, what exactly happens when you try to connect, what steps you have already tried to resolve the problem, what the results of those efforts had been, etc.

Solution on a slow Internet connections Problem  The major  causes for a slow...


Solution on a slow Internet connections Problem 
The major  causes for a slow Internet connections. A poor-performing connection can be caused by broadband router configuration issues, wireless interference, or any of several other technical issues with your home network. Follow these steps to diagnose slow Internet connections.
 1. Broadband Router Settings
As the centerpiece of a network, a broadband router can be responsible for slow Internet connections if configured improperly. For example, the MTU setting of your router will lead to performance issues if set too high or too low. Ensure your router's settings are all consistent with the manufacturer's and your Internet Service Provider (ISP) recommendations. Carefully record any changes you make to your router's configuration so that you can undo them later if necessary.
 2. Wireless Signal Interference
Wi-Fi and other types of wireless connections may perform poorly due to signal interference, which requires computers to continually resend messages to overcome signal issues. Household appliances and even your neighbors' wireless networks can interfere with your computers. To avoid slow Internet connections due to signal interference, reposition your router for better performance and change your Wi-Fi channel number.
 3. Internet Worms
An Internet worm is a malicious software program that spreads through computer networks. If any of your computers are infected by an Internet worm, they may begin spontaneously generating network traffic without your knowledge, causing your Internet connection to appear slow. Run antivirus software regularly to diagnose and remove these worms from your computers.
 4. Running Background Applications
Some software applications you install on a computer run in the background, quietly consuming network resources. Unlike worms, these are programs designed to do useful work. Peer to peer (P2P) programs in particular can heavily utilize your network and cause connections to appear slow. It's easy to forget these applications are running. Always check computers for any programs running in the background when troubleshooting a slow network.
 5. Faulty Network Equipment
When routers, modems or cables fail, they typically won't support connections. Certain technical glitches in network equipment, however, adversely affect performance even though connections are maintained. To troubleshoot potentially faulty equipment, temporarily re-arrange and re-configure your gear while experimenting with different configurations. Try bypassing the router, swapping cables and changing network adapters to isolate the slow performance to a specific component of the system.
 6. Service Provider Issues
Internet speed ultimately depends on the service provider. Your ISP may change their network's configuration, or suffer technical difficulties, that inadvertently cause your Internet connection to run slow. ISPs may also intentionally install filters or controls on the network that can lower your performance. Don't hesitate to contact your service provider if you suspect they are responsible for a slow Internet connection.

Internet runs slowly and lots of error messages and freezing


Contact the net service provider. Data transfer speed is too low. Ask them to correct it. If they refuse, reject the connection, and connect with any other service provider.

I want to connect the internet in my phone set no. 2690, I already recharge 98 internet card in my phone, but when I surfing the internet in my mobile then my balance is going less.


From the information you have provided, it can be inferred that the 98 internet plan has still not been activated by your carrier/service provider. Please wait for the plan to be activated, which usually takes around 4 hours after you have done the recharge. In case it does not get activated, please contact your service provider and ask them to activate it.

I have acer computer, but cannot access the internet, Please provide customer service contact to assist me. thank you


The best thing is to check if you have got a valid internet service provider contract.
Then check that you are connected to the modem.

Try the contact number of your internet service provicer as ACER support may not be able to help you directly especially if you had the internet running already. But if you have purchased a new computer then you should contact the company the sold you the computer and ask them to set it up correctly for internet.

When i begin to retrieve a movie chosen to watch instantly a message appears siting the internet connection is slow. I checked with tech support related to connection and am rec 2megs as before when the...


Hello,

The connection of your internet is slow as of this moment. I understand that you checked with tech support related to connection but I just want to clarify if that tech support is from your internet service provider. If you have called them already and nothing happens, you can do this troubleshooting:

System Restore - This troubleshooting can put back your computer's system back to the time when it was still working fine. I want you to remember the last time when it was still doing fine because you need to select that date later on in the procedure.

Here's what you are going to do:

1. Go to start or click on the pearl if you are using windows 7.
2. Click programs.
3. Click System Tools
4. Then, system restore.

After clicking on System Restore, you will immediately see a screen where you can choose to roll back the system to the last restore point. Select "Choose a different restore point".

carloadrian_1.png
You will then see different restore points. This is time when you choose the date when your computer was still working fine.

Note: System Restore won't remove any files that you have saved to your computer like pictures, word documents, excel, music, etc.

carloadrian_2.png
Just select on the date when it was still working fine.

Click confirm or next and make the computer restart. Wait while it was loading and make sure that the computer has successfully restored. If not, then you have to do the process again and select a different restore point.

If this troubleshooting doesn't work, just let me know by leaving a message in this thread or contact your internet service provider for your internet connection.

I hope this helps.

Thanks

Everthing is connected but power light is red and not green.


I'm sorry I cannot completely solve your issues here, but this is due to certain details that are specific to your internet service provider, and other details not provided in your request. However, I do have quite a bit of experience with 2Wire gateways and setting them up for use with DSL service. The following is based on my experiences with 2wire gateways, and AT&T as service provider:

There are a many things that could possibly be causing the red power light (which indicates a system error, more details below), and the reason why you have no internet connection. Your very best bet is to call technical support for your internet service provider (or ISP) for DSL service. You likely received this unit from your service provider - if you did, then they will have technicians who can walk you through the setup process for this specific 2Wire gateway. Also, if you received the unit from your service provider, you most likely received a setup CD/DVD for setup on your pc. If you have not already run this setup disk, do so prior to contacting technical support, and check the status of your lights / internet connection again prior to calling tech support. Depending on your service provider, if you did not receive a CD/DVD from them to setup internet service, then you most likely can find a download of the setup utility available via their website...just go online and see if you can find it on their specific website,& if so, download and run the setup utility. Only run the setup utility on a pc connected directly (by ethernet cable) to the 2Wire gateway, unless directed to do otherwise by your service provider, or their setup utility's instructions.

If you did not receive the unit from your service provider, then you should contact them asap to find out: A) if they support the 2wire gateway (give them the model number), and if they do support it, B) find out what is required to set it up for use with their service.

According to the manual from the manufacturer, available here , when your power light is lit solid red, it indicates the following: "system error, contact technical support". You need to contact technical support for your Internet Service Provider (such as AT&T DSL), NOT for the manufacturer.

If you have your PC connected to your 2wire unit, and the unit is powered on, you can access the unit's setup utility via your web browser (please ensure you have Internet Explorer 5.5 or later, or Mozilla Firefox 3.2 or later). Open your web browser, and in the address bar type the following:

http://gateway.2wire.net/

Click the system tab to open the System Summary page. The diamonds should be green or red, indicating the status of your LED's on the light panel of the 2Wire unit. It may give you only the status message I indicated above, or could provide you with more info. I maintain that you should first contact your ISP's tech support, but if you have not already accessed the gateway's setup utility and run the setup wizard, you may do so from the System Summary area. Look to the far right of the page, and you should see the Setup Wizard utility link in the lower right-hand portion of the page. Links for other registration info are also in this section, if available. Follow the on-screen instructions and check your status lights again.

Again, I hope this information helps, and again, your best resource is the tech support team for your internet service provider. Best of luck, and please report back to let us know if you get it set up, or, if we can be of further assistance to you in any way.

My laptop will connect with the internet though a home router. At a hotel or airport it will not connect with the internet service provided by these places. What is wrong


More information needed:
Does your laptop have a wireless adapter?
How do you connect at home? (wireles or ethernet cable?)
What brand of laptop do you have?
What troubleshooting steps have you already taken?

For your information, when away from your home network, you must change your wireless settings to point to the hotel or airport provider where you are trying to connect.

Usually hotels have some contact information and some basic support (some better than others) for their wireless connections.

Want Internet Connection


Hi Smiti,
I am not sure what do you exactly mean over here. Do you have already contacted any internet service provider and you are not able to connect or you are not sure which service provider you should choose. If you are not sure who should be your service provider, you can consult your friends or neighbours as to who are the best internet service providers in your area, if you are not able to connect to the internet, please mention what does it exactly do, the history of the issue and any error message and for how long.
