Question about Logitech QuickCam Communicate STX Personal Web Camera

1 Answer

Server shutdown I can install softwear no problem but when I use webcam it disconnects me from my server. I cannot open internet explorer or access my mail through outlook express. This problem in turn stops me rebooting or shutting down. I have uninstalled the driver and when I can eventually restart my connection resumes, so it looks like a driver prob.I have downloaded the latest version of Skype but it is still the same. Should I throw it and buy the webcam designed just for Skype.?

Hope this is of some help. Bud

Why do i continue to lose my connection to the server when playing a game?

LAN Connection Issues and Port Settings LAN-based matches between players on your internal home network are not routed through the Internet or servers. Disconnections from LAN matches are attributed to faulty internal wiring or router settings. Log in to your router's administration page via a Web browser and ensure ports 6112 through 6119 TCP are open for traffic flow. If this does not work, check your network wiring and ensure it's properly seated in the computer's and router's Ethernet ports. Corrupt Server List and Virus Attack If you have recently downloaded any maps or connected to privately hosted servers, it's possible you picked up a virus that altered your server file list and is directly causing connection issues. Scan your computer for viruses, using an updated virus definition database. b> Multiple IP Connections b> If you and a friend share a single license or key, disconnects occur if you attempt logging in while the other is playing or vice versa. Key sharing is against the Terms of Use and can lead to an IP ban or restriction. Ensure no one else has access to your CD key or tries to access the game while you are playing to avoid multiple IP disconnects. b> High Latency Disconnects Internet connections with latency over 500 ms can cause disconnects while playing in heavily populated online matches. Alleviate this issue by closing all connection-intensive programs running on your computer. Reconnect to the .net servers with only running on your computer. If you continue experiencing disconnects, visit and determine whether your latency is above 500 ms. If so, contact your Internet provider for further troubleshooting. Internet crashing b> If your Internet Explorer keeps randomly crashing (closing by itself), there may be an add-on or temporary page disrupting the connection. Every time you browse the web, Internet Explorer keeps track of the websites you visit. It keeps these pages, along with cookie trackers, in the "Temporary Browsing History" folder. Some websites cause Internet Explorer to crash.

Open the Internet Explorer browser. Go to "Tools > Delete Browsing History." Hit "Delete All." Check off the box that says "Also delete files and settings stored by add-ons." Hit "OK." Close and reopen the browser. b> Disable Add-Ons b> Go to "Start > Search." Type "Internet Explorer" and hit "Enter." The computer will search for any files with this label. Double-click on the file that says "Internet Explorer (No Add-Ons)." This will allow you to browse in IE without any additional plug-ins or add-ons that might be causing the browser to crash. b> Reset Internet Explorer b> Open the IE browser. Go to "Tools > Internet Options." Hit "Advanced." Click on "Reset" and then hit "Enter." Close and reopen the browser. Hope this helps. b>

Not able to apply the proxy settings for internet explorer


Open Microsoft Internet Explorer and from the 'Tools' menu select 'Internet Options'. from the 'tools' menu.

Select the 'Connections' tab.

Select 'LAN Settings'. In the 'Proxy server' section select 'Use a proxy server for LAN ..., enter your proxy address, and enter port 8080. 'Bypass proxy server for local addresses' is selected if you are accessing network resources through a intranet. When complete, select OK twice.

After you apply your settings to the web browser test your Internet connection by attempting to access an external Web site such as Test more than one Web site. If you are unable to access external Internet resources, verify the spelling of your entries. If spelling is correct, contact your company's helpdesk to find out if there is a problem with the corporate proxy server.

Internet explorer opens and gives error Cannot find server. wireless network connection is available

The issue here would appear to be with the communications between the laptop and the server or wireless access point. Can you get other laptops to access the internet using your server?

If you are installing the software from the Web, and if the program stops responding (hangs), the program may be unable to connect to a server to download files. You must be connected to Internet to install the software. Depending on your Internet connection, the setup may take 15-20 minutes to finish.

You may notice that the installation process seems to get stuck in a loop, and seems to reinstall some components. This is typical behavior. However, if the setup stops or seems to get stuck in a loop for more 30 minutes, the server may be down or may be experiencing other problems. In this case, you may have to restart the setup, try again later, or try again the next day.

If the same thing happens, you can try the following steps :
Set Microsoft Internet Explorer as the default browser
loadTOCNode(2, 'resolution');
  1. Start Internet Explorer.
  2. On the Tools menu, click Internet Options.
  3. In the Internet Options dialog box, click to select Make Default on the Programs tab, and then click OK.
  4. Restart Internet Explorer.
  5. Click Yes if you are prompted with the following message: Internet Explorer is not currently your default browser. Would you like to make it your default browser?
  6. Exit Internet Explorer.

    Note You must complete these steps to install the software. After the install is complete, you can switch back to a different default browser if you prefer.

Update of avg softwears

Older versions of AVG won't update anymore. What you should do is uninstall your old version and download the latest version.

The firefox issue may be solved by uninstalling firefox. You could also try to download a newer version of firefox and install it.

You may set Internet Explorer as your default browser by starting it and choosing 'internet options' from the 'extra' menu. At the 'programs' tab there should be a possibility to set Internet Explorer as standard browser.

How do I install my Logitech webcam? My niece uses Yahoo Messenger, but when I tried to install it, my home page chanaged to Yahoo and numerous popups appear daily.


Let me explain the procedure on how to install the Webcam.

Procedure is same for all Brand Webcams.

First disconnect the Webcam from the Computer. Insert the Webcam driver disks and follow onscreen steps to complete the installtion.

In between the installtion, it will ask you to connect the Webcam. There you have to connect the Webcam, then small installtion will run and Cam will be ready to use.

If it won't ask you to connect the Webcam, then after completing the installtion you can connect the cam.

Comming to the Home page and POPups issue.

While installing the Webcam driver by following the onscreen steps, somewhere there will be checks for "Set Yahoo as home page" or "Install yahoo or Google tool bar etc" you have to uncheck all those kind of things while installing the driver software.

Anyhow, I will also provide steps on how to change the Internet explorer home page and Block POPups.

Here are the steps to change the Home page of Internet Explorer:

1. Open Internete explorer.

2. Click on Tools Menu--Internet Options.

3. Under Homepage, Enter the Website you want to set as default and press Enter (Eg:

4. Click Apply--ok

To block the POPUPs:

1. Open Internete explorer.

2. Click on Tools Menu--Internet Options.

3. Click on Privacy Tab

4. Check box for BLOCK POPUPS

5. Click Apply--Ok.

Hope that helps you!!
