Internet connection My son in Paris who is an experienced user, this morning cannot gain internet access, which seems to be something to do with 'http://' problems. He gets a message 'error 12007' He gets a ping back from 127.0.0.1 but a timeout on 168.192.0.1. He can talk to me via Skype so there must be a connection. Any ideas

Restart your PC/Laptop.

No connection to facebook


Recently Facebook has experienced connection problems with some internet service providers (example CLEAR, ATT, etc) Users can sometimes view messages, and old news feed items, but it will not refresh and you cannot reply to messages. Does this sound right?

The outage started around Nov 26th and is not yet resolved as of Dec 1st. The outage is also noticeable with other websites such as Craig's list and some parts of yahoo. If you are having trouble accessing news feeds on any of these sites the issue is probably not with your device. It is the host server that connects to your internet service provider.
Therefore it is not something that you will be able to fix. There are several outages currently affecting over 100 different websites right now. Users in the Central and Western US will be affected most as well as parts of Europe. There is a 60% chance it is affecting you if you are in one of these areas.

Best course of action is to contact your internet service provider and let them know what sites you cannot access, then ask if they know how long the outage will last.

You can also try connecting using a different ISP and see if it works.

How do you change limited internet access to full access


Limited access usually means you have full access to your network through your hotspot, but the hotspot is not connected to the internet or it cannot get a signal.

My router keeps skipping out of connection for 7-10 seconds. it will then re-gain access to the internet. restarting it by unpluging it is ineffective.



make sure your routers settings are correct ie:password user name,firewall settings to allow your internet to connect also test the lead/s whether usb or ethernet you might check your modem (if applicable)) first to make sure that you are getting a connection
last resort ring your ISP internet sevice provider get them to check your modem for internet access online

hope this helps

I usually connect to my neighbor's wireless internet. We have had no problems until this morning when the connection to the internet just dropped and stopped working. I have the Linksys WUSB54GSC and it...


Usually such problems occur when the administrator to the internet service decides to block a particular user from accessing the internet or sets a password for users on the internet. The best bet is to contact your neighbour as he will be the best person to tell you what happened.
Hope this solution has been helpful?

CANNOT CONNECT TO INTERNET


in the installation manual you have a url you can type in...its something like 192.428.111.1...ect about 10-12 numbers...type this number in the internet browser search window. this will tell you first if you have access to the internet. you should get the settings windows for your router. there you can make adjustments as needed for your rounter unit.once confirmed.

if you are having access to the wireless network you set up the password you set in is obviously incorrect when it was set up. first check the light on the front of the wireless router it should have various light on ..such as power,,usb...dsl...and internet..with the internet light flashing... as a precaution please do a repair connection on your internet access point on the computer ur using..right click the wireless icon at the bottom of your screen if ur using xp..sometimes this repair will be just enough to clear up issues.and allow access.

if this continues...you may need to reinstall the unit...there is generally a reset button (very small) on the underside of ur wireless unit and take the appropriate steps..
