    Hi,

    This is most likely a firewall or software issue. Tap F8
    while turning on the computer and select “Safe mode with networking”. Boot to
    the desktop in safe mode and check if you are able to go online. This will
    confirm the cause of the issue.


     


    Hope this helps, Do let us know what happened


    Thanks

Are you using Norton Internet Security? Perhaps even with ANOTHER anti-virus product installed?

At any rate, turn off / uninstall any firewall product you are using and see if this solves the problem.

My computer seems to disconnect the internet


Wireless or Hard Wired internet connection ?

When you set up a dial-up Internet service connection on your Windows computer, it comes automatically configured to disconnect itself after a predetermined period of inactivity.


This means that if you walk away from your computer and forget that you're online, your internet connection will automatically shut itself down.


If this feature isn't as helpful as you assumed it would be, you can turn it off using the Network and Sharing Center.

Click "Start."


Click "Control Panel."

Click "Network and Sharing Center."


Click "Change Adapter Settings."


Right-click on your dial-up Internet service icon.

Click "Properties."


Clear the check box next to the "Auto Disconnect" listing on screen.

Click "Apply."


The auto disconnect on your computer Internet service connection is now turned off.


also if its running slow


Slow computers that persistently disconnect from Internet access may have issues with the wireless setup or if on a wired connection, there may be a problem with the Ethernet cable or port.

Troubleshooting connection and speed issues can save money rather than taking the computer to a technician or repair shop.


Additionally, some firewalls and security features can make it difficult to access certain types of websites.


Before spending money to have the computer diagnosed, try running through the most common, basic causes of connection issues.


Consider the type of site you are trying to access.

High-traffic sites such as gaming sites can sometimes be affected by high volumes of users accessing or attempting to access the site at once.


Test this by attempting to access the site at different times during the day and evening; peak hours for games that typically appeal to children may be during the afternoons on weekdays while games for older or more mature audiences will see high traffic at night.


Check your Internet connectivity and determine whether you are using a wired or wireless connection.

In the lower right side of the computer screen there should be an icon displaying the Internet or network connection.


Wireless connections are displayed with connection bars similar to those seen on cell phones while wired connections may show the end of a plug next to a monitor icon.


Reset the router if using a wireless connection.


For most home routers you simply unplug the power cord from the router box, wait a moment and plug it back in.


You may have to restart your computer to reestablish a secure connection.


Access the router through the computer and check for updates. Some routers offer firmware updates that fix some connectivity issues.


While updating the router, check for Internet browser updates as well as any critical updates for your computer's operating system.

Verify the computer uses the most up-to-date version of the Web browser available.


Try a different browser. Internet Explorer is the most commonly used Web browser, but not always the best for every site.


Try downloading another Web browser such as Firefox, Opera, or Google Chrome and test the sites there.


If the connections are still disconnected and the Internet speed seems slow, it may be an Internet issue.


Wired Connections


Trace the Ethernet cable from the Internet modem to the computer if using a wired connection.


Unplug the end of the Ethernet cable and check that the plastic head is secure and that there is a click when you return the plug to the modem; do the same on the computer end.


Inspect the Ethernet cable carefully as it runs from the modem to the computer.

If the cable was tacked down with a staple gun or other attachment, check the cable to verify it wasn't accidentally pierced.


Additionally, check for bends, twists or worn areas along the cable.

Measure the length of the Ethernet cable.


In general, cables longer than 100 feet tend to receive poorer signal transmission.


If the cable is longer than 100 feet, replacing with a higher quality cable or moving the computer or Internet modem may resolve connection issues.



Hope this helps.

Can i connect to xbox live using vodafone mobile broardband usb stick


hi there,
you can't connect the usb stick to the xbox directly, but you can connect your xbox to your pc/laptop with the broadband usb stick in your pc/laptop and share the connection. while this will work, it's not going to be very fast and if you intend to play games online there will be a big lag. But it's better than nothing if that is all you have for internet connection. Anyway here's how. connect your laptop to your xbox using an ethernet cable, and have your usb dongle in your pc/laptop connected to the internet.
now depending on what os(operating system) you have on your computer, navigate to control panel>network and sharing>manage network connections.
once in here you want to enable sharing on your connection and tick the box allow other users to connect through this computers connection. then you want to select local area connection on the home network connection menu.
now you can test your xbox live connection to see if it connects to the internet, if it does happy gaming :)
If it fails, try making your connection to a public rather than private connection. If this method fails, try restarting your pc/laptop and then your xbox and go through the process again.
I know this can be tricky and alot of trial and error, but if this is all you have to connect to the internet and you really want to get online then it will be worth the effort. Hope this helps.

I cant change the casino in texas poker .. failed to connect refresh your page :S


What do I need to do to access the games on PokerRoom.com? Step 1 - You log in the first time using your regular nickname and password (either through the website or Windows Download Client)

Step 2 -You will be prompted to complete an online form which requires a change of password and the completion of a Security Code

Step 3 - A Security Code will be sent via secure mail, to your inbox.

Note: The browser from which you are logged in to must remain open, so you should check your email using another browser or program. If you close down the original browser, the security code sent will no longer be valid and you will have to repeat the process from Step 1 and request a new (valid) security code.

Step 4 - Simply complete the online form.

Step 5 - From now on you will use your email together with your new password to log in to PokerRoom.com and all our games.

Step 6 - You are required to update your password on a regular basis.

There are scheduled multi-table tournaments (for up to 2000 players!). Some requires players to make a buy-in, while others, the freerolls, are absolutely free to join. The most common tournament poker game is No Limit Texas Hold'em, but you'll also find Limit Texas Hold'em as well as Omaha and Seven Card Stud.

If you got kicked out, it may mean that your Internet connection to our server broke down for some reason. the web client, just reload the game in your browser to get back. The downloadable client will automatically try to reconnect. You should automatically be taken back to your table. If you get disconnected during a tournament game, you will be put on autopilot. The computer will play for you until you come back. Its playing strategy is simple; check until someone bets, then fold. Just click on the "I'm back"-button to turn off the autopilot.

Trying to send an email with pictures but it freezes every time i try and send


Have you tried sending an email using different computer? Most of the time, internet connection and internet browser are the common cause of system freeze up when sending an email.

Try to access your email in a different computer that is connected to a different network. If you're not able to duplicate the problem on different computer, then the problem has something to do with the computer that you are using.

Contact your ISP to verify if there's any issues with the internet connection. Or clear the cookies, internet files, and browsing history of your browser.

But if the same problem occur while using different computer, you must check the file size of the picture that you are trying to send. Most email provider could support attachments that has 32MB, 50MB, 1GB attachment. But it will depend on your email provider.

Thank you and good luck!
