THE PROBLEM CAN BE IN SEVERAIL EREAS, BUT I THINK IT IS THE WINDOWS FIREWALL.

GO INTO THE CONTROL PANEL AND CHECK THE FOLLOWING FOLDERS:

DEVICE MANAGER,
NETWORKING AND SHARING,
PROBLEMS AND REPORTS,
SECURITY CENTER;
WINDOWS DEFENDER
WINDOWS FIREWALL

ALL THESE AREA MUST HAVE GREEN MARKS IN THESE AREAS OR THEY WILL NOT WORK ON THE INTERNET.

It says that I have internet but cant get on the internet


Do you try to connect to the Internet when at home or away from home ? At home, you need to have a wireless (WiFi) network to connect your tablet to and then access the Internet from your tablet. Away from home you need to find an OPEN WiFi network (usually in public places such as coffee shops, bookstores, etc) to connect to. Or you can get an USB mobile/cellular modem from your cellular provider to attach to the USB port on your tablet and access the Internet at home and/or away from home (this option will cost you money). You also need to install on your tablet apps that will access the Internet (browsers, Pandora, Youtube, etc.).

How to get Emails from other computers I want to take my new Mac. with me on vacation. How do I get to see the messages on my other computer at home


One "partial" solution is to use your "home" Internet Service Provider's "Web Mail" service.

For example, try 'webmail.verizon.net' or 'webmail.roadrunner.com'.

You'll be able to access all the "new" E-mail that arrives while you are "away" from your "home" computer, but none of the E-mail that was stored on your "home" computer _before_ you went away.

The other solution is to use the "Remote Desktop Protocol" to "logically" connect your Mac's keyboard & mouse & screen, over the Internet, to your "home" computer, rather than using the "physically-connected" keyboard & mouse & screen.

You would have to:
1. leave your "home" computer powered-on all the time that you're away;
2. either connect your home-computer directly to your cable-modem or DSL-modem, or to use "port-forwarding" on any router that is "between" your home computer(s) and your modem, to direct all "Remote Desktop" connection-attempts to one specific computer on your home network.
3. be "security-conscious" -- exposing your computer to "accept" a Remote Desktop connection means that any computer-hacker will try to login with your ID & password to your computer, over the Internet.
4. have a "Remote Desktop Protocol" client piece of software on your Mac.

No internet acces at all


Hi.
There are a couple of ways to troubleshoot this problem, i doubt that three months away will have caused this.
Ok, first off we'll check the modem, go to the modem and take the power lead from the back of that for 2 minutes, don't unplug it from the wall because there is still a trickle charge in the wire, the modem will not reset!!!
After 2 minutes is up plug the adapter back in and wait another 2 minutes for it to settle down, then try to reconnect to the net again.
If there is still no internet connection post back and we can move on to the network adapter.


Good luck

Problems with internet connection have got wifi


Dude, there is no way you can get a better signal unless you come closer to the router or the router comes nearer to you. I suggest that you get a new source of internet connection

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.
