Question about Zoom Computers & Internet

1 Answer

Wired internet connection not working

I got a new computer and I cant seem to get my zoom modem/router to get a consistent internet connection on my computer. I have been just dealing with the fact to get onto the internet I have to click refresh countless times before I actually can browse the web. I have had several other people bring their computers to my house and have no problem getting on and staying on the internet. I took my computer to a friends house and I was able to access the internet via his wireless router right away and with none of the problems I experience with my wireless internet. On a side note my wife and I also recently got smart phones, we each have a different phone, and those also have issues connecting and staying connected to our wireless internet, but again only when attempting to use our wireless connection at home. Do you have any thoughts as to what I need to do with the router? I have already tried the turn it off and then back on method of fixing but that did not seem to solve any issues.

You must reset the router by 30 seconds and try again. Remember they have a password for wep key for access. do you do it?when you installed the router the software is you want the connection close or open?
However you must click in open network connection , and select network troubleshooter and fix it.
If the problem remain, you must go to router supplier manufacturer via ONLINE chat, and explain the problem.
or reinstall the Router again follow the steps with your disk instalation.
God bless you

SOURCE: Stopped providing connectivity to internet or LAN

What is the color of the power light? If it's solid red then that only means that there is something worng with it. And since you already rebooted the device a couple of times, you cant to reset it. You press the reset button on your rotuer for 10-15 sec. its usually located on the back of the router. Now let me also remind you that it will erase all of the settings on your router if you do this, so you will need to reconfigure it after you reset it.

Just reply to this post to let me know what will happen.

thanks.

SOURCE: Connecting Laptop wireless and Desktop wired to the router

Do you need to see the desktop or just share folders from each other? If the latter then you need to do the following:

Use Windows Explorer and select a folder you want to share. Right click and select sharing and security.

On the sharing tab click on Share this folder. Enter a share name ( I like to enter the PC name _folder name; Rick1_Downloads)

Click on Permissions. If your ok with everyone using the PC's and Laptops having access then highlight Everyone and click on Full Control.

Do this on each PC and Laptop.

That should be it or darned near close.

Cant get wifi unless I am a couple of inches from router. All other wifi devices work perfectly. I even downloaded the latest driver directly from Intel and problem still exists.


Having a wireless Internet signal in your home allows multiple devices to use the same Internet connection without having to run lengths of Ethernet cable to each device. Given that the wireless network is transmitted over the air, the consistency of your Internet connection depends on the strength of the wireless signal. If wireless signal strength is not strong enough to give you a consistent Internet connection, there are a few simple steps for finding the problem and improving your signal strength.

Reset all devices. The majority of Internet issues, including poor wireless signal strength, are very often solved by a simple power cycle of all the devices in the network. Locate the power cords of both your modem and your wireless router and remove them (if you use a modem/router combination, simply unplug the power to that device). Leave them unplugged for a full 30 seconds, plug them back in and restart your computer. When your computer fully reboots, check your wireless signal strength to see if it has improved. If it has not, further troubleshooting is required. Move your computer closer to your router, or your router closer to your computer. Wireless routers do not have unlimited range. One reason your computer may be getting a weak signal strength from your wireless network could be because your computer is simply outside of the router's range. Typically, ISPs (Internet Service Providers) will install your modem in one specific location in the house and the modem will not work at other locations, so moving the modem or modem/router combination may not be a possibility. If this is the case, you may need to move the computer to a location that is within the range of the wireless router's broadcast. If you still get poor signal strength, your router may be experiencing a malfunction. Contact the technical support department of your router manufacturer. Router malfunctions often are not the result of a bad or broken router, but of something much simpler, such as the router's needing a firmware upgrade or an incorrect setting on the router's internal setup. If your router manufacturer is unable to improve your wireless signal strength, it may be time to purchase a new router. Purchase a new router. Wireless routers are priced in part based on how widely their wireless signal broadcasts (in other words, the more expensive the router you buy, the larger a wireless signal the router will broadcast). Included in the packaging of each wireless router is the approximated range, in square footage, of that router's wireless network. A good rule of thumb is to know the square footage of your house and buy a router that can accommodate that square footage. That way, as long as the router is functioning properly, you will have strong wireless signal strength throughout your entire home.

Tip

Internet Connection Basics


Modern high-speed internet connections are made using DSL or cable modems. In general, most DSL modems also act as routers, but not too many cable modems act like a router.

Some internet connection basics: Every device connected to the internet has an IP (Internet Protocol) address. The address consists of 4 groups of up to 3 numbers each. They would look like this: 123.111.36.145 (0 is the smallest number and 255 is the largest you will see). When you connect to the internet, you are assigned an IP address by your ISP (Internet Service Provider). When you hook up your computer
to the modem, the signal is passed through the device to your computer and the device's IP address becomes your address. This is not secure, as the "bad guys" could type your IP address into their machine and theoretically see your computer and access all your data.

Connecting with your modem: Modems come with a CD nowadays. Running the setup CD makes connecting quite easy. With a DSL modem, you normally have to provide a username and password to log on. Cable modems generally rely on the cable connection to your house to recognize who you are and when you run the setup CD, you are automatically connected.

The router: The purpose of this device is twofold--one is to take the signal you get from your ISP and send it to a number of computers in your home network. The second purpose is to take the IP address and send it to a different address on each computer. This acts as a "firewall" in that the IP address assigned to your computer is no longer the address of the computer. Those bad guys trying to hack into your system will have a much more difficult time.

Types of routers: There are wired routers capable only of hooking up computers with ethernet cable within a network. There are wireless routers--normally these have 4 wired ports and a set of antennas. These function will in a mixed environment of wired and wireless computers. Most people these days are using wireless routers.

In my next tip, I'll describe how you go about hooking up your new router to an existing internet connection.

I bought a Belkin 'Play' router to provide wireless internet connectivity from my CLEAR modem. I can't get the router to speedtest at half the speed as being directly connected (via ethernet cable) to the...


Use an Ethernet cable from the CLEAR modem into the WAN (or 'Internet') port on the Belkin.
Take a close look at the 8 coloured wires at each end of the Ethernet cable.
The 8 wires must be coloured in the _same_ order at both ends.

Be sure that you have a 'CAT-5' or 'CAT-5E' cable, not a 'CAT-3' cable, which is much slower, over long distances.

Use another Ethernet cable from one of the (three? four?) 'LAN' ports on the Belkin to the network-port on your computer. Again, check that you have a "straight-through" cable, not a "cross-over" cable.

Turn the CLEAR modem off.
Turn the Belkin off.
Turn your computer off.

Turn the CLEAR modem on, and wait until its lamps settle-down to a consistent pattern.

Turn the Belkin on, and wait until its lamps settle-down to a consistent pattern.

Turn your computer on, and let it boot.

You now should have Internet access.

Note that the router "dynamically" shares the Internet connection.
If there are 4 'LAN' ports, then each of the LAN ports gets as much speed as it needs;
you do not have a 25/25/25/25 split, unlike cutting-up an apple-pie to feed 4 people.

Run a "speed-test" on your computer, and you should be getting as much speed as you are paying for. Having the Belkin in the "middle" of your network should *NOT* slow-down the speed-test at all.

Turn your computer on.
Wait for it to settle-down.
Click Start
Click Run
Type CMD
Press Enter
Type IPCONFIG
You should get output somewhat like: Default Gateway .... 192.168.123.456
if you have a connection between your router and your computer.
If you have that connection, you should be able to upload new firmware from your computer to the router.

Welcome to Fixya

Hi. As what i understand the MC760 alone can connect to the internet without connecting to the router. This device will act as a modem right away. This is the one of the device where you will put in a simcard to connect to the internet if i am not mistaken. You need to download and install the software of for this device and creat a dial up for your to be able to connect to the internet. Here's the link where you can download the driver and the procedure on how to create Dial up.

Thank you for using Fixya!

Can't Connect to Internet


there is a need to reconfigure your router to work with your modem. If configured already before, then there is great chance that this has been set back to factory default.
