Contact your cable provider and see if you can get a reset on the CMTS
They provided. the reset your router. To default and use the software to set up the router for the different wireless device you have by either MAC address or by name.

I bought a laptop just a month ago and it is not working properly, it will download firefox, or a game but not run it? There is no backup disk how can I make the computer back to the way it was when I...

Depending upon the brand, there is a key combination, which will usually take you to the manufacturer's "hidden partition." In those circumstances, there will then be a series of options, including rebuilding the computer as if it has just come out of the box. Doing something similar, but not destroying the files you may have created - DOCs, XLSs, etc - since buying the laptop.
Basically, if you use that key combination, you can rebuild your laptop as if it has just been taken out of the box from the store, and then you will have to start all over again, and again ... as if you have just taken it home from the store.
My suggestion is that if this laptop is only one month old, and whatever happened to it was something you caused to happen, as opposed to it being a problem caused by a bad computer, then restart the computer as if it was just brought home.
It will take time to redo things, but you will be happier, in that you will have a brandy new PC all over again.
I did this about three separate times after buying my Acer two years ago, knowing that the problems were of my own creation, not something that was caused by a bad computer.
Since then, almost exactly two years ago, I have been extremely pleased with this laptop and, as a professional systems consultant, am confident when asked what brand laptop I recommend to a client, responding that they can buy an Acer. It is less expensive than a Lenovo or an HP – HP being one which I also recommend – and just as reliable as anything else on the market.
So go ahead, rebuild, and have fun! It actually helps you to learn more about your new system along the way. And learning is fun, too!

troubleshooting a network is a multiple step process.
1. Establish that your modem is working properly, and plugged in. As per the diagram shown here:
  • Your "Cable link" light should be on (signifying that the outside cable is properly connected to the router)
  • Your "Internet" light should be on (signifying you have an established Internet connection)
  • And, most importantly, your "PC Link" light should be on (showing that at least as far as the modem is concerned, it is detecting that the computer is plugged in to it.
2. double check to make sure that the network cables are seated properly, and plugged in all the way. the PC link light should give you an indication for modem-side- the LED light around the network cable jack on the laptop should give you an indication PC-side.
3. check on your laptop for any security software that may restrict new networks from being detected and disable them to test. For example, Symantec or Mcaffee Firewall can sometimes block a "new" network from being detected.
4. Completely shut down the laptop and unplug the power cord from the modem. Plug the modem back in. Wait around 3 minutes for the modem to initialize and do it's thing- then turn on your laptop and see if this resolved your issue.
If this doesn't work, you may want to try other things, such as resetting your network, and removing/re-installing your network adapter drivers.

It sounds like your network card was damaged by a power surge, most likely what brew the power supply too. When you power up the PC now the network card tries to start and kills the network line going to the router, when PC is off the card does not short and the router works like it should. You should be able to put a new network card in a open slot in the pc and connect that one to your router.

I hope this helps, If so please rate my solution.

No power

it depends if your computer is under warranty. it is some kinda expensive to fix since its the power source thats been affected. better bring it immediately to a computer technician or your computer manufacturer if it is still under warranty. also it depends if the computer monitor has been affected also.. if it is only the main computer tower you can just buy a new computer tower and have it set up with your monitor.

Monitor started to flicker then went blank

I have a envision professional series and I love it, but I will get to the point.
I recent ly received a Envision EN9410e monitor, had the same problem (flickering screen then turned on, then off then on then blank). The problem is bad capacitors. There are 7 electrolytic capXon capacitors that will need to be replaced. You should see if the caps are bulging or leaking, if so replace. As known by many replace with the same capacitance and voltage. There are a few incidences that the capacitors where replaced and the problem wasn’t solved; this is because the cap problem wasn’t taken care of and damage occurred to another part of the monitor. The back light is a Royer oscillator (cool things) and it uses two smd mosfet transistors. They are on the green side of the circuit board near a big control chip (they each look like a off rectangle black square with eight pins) you need to see if there is any carbon or chard residue between the pins or burning smell from them, if there is you need to remove the transistor and do some board repair then ether put a new transistor or try the old one. No offence to the people at Envision but not smart putting the drain, gate and source so close to each other under the chip where there is such high voltage! Hope this helps.

Yes it can happen after a reinstall.. You will need to go into the computer ie take the back off. Pull the modem out and put it back in in another slot exact to the one you pulled it out of. Try it again it will no doubt read this time.. It can only be done this way if you try to manually install a moderm it will load the standard one NOT your Modem. Goodluck!
