    Are you picking a variety of dates to restore to or the same one each time?



    If you go to an earlier system restore does it work okay?



    Are you using windows? Have you seen if it affects Firefox or just Internet Explorer?



    When you can't connect using Internet Explorer can you ping external sites?

Tip

Tip on speeding up your Internet connection.


I have high speed and my Internet was sluggish at best for months. I tried everything including the following Resetting my cable modem, replacing my cable modem with a newer model. Resetting my Wi-Fi router, replacing my Wi-Fi router. Reinstalling my operating system. Updating my network drivers. Scanning for Malwere and viruses daily. I tried different browers including Firefox, Chrome and others. I updated Internet Explorer with all the latest patches.

I have determine that the DNS server was the issue. The DNS server is a translator, it allows us to just type in the website name like www.microsoft.com instead of remembering numbers like 216.239.51.99. I fix mine by using Open DNS instead of my internet provider DNS Server.

Here is how to fix it. Go to control panel, then click on your local area connection icon. Click on properties and then double click on TCP/IP Internet Protocol. Leave the top settings alone, which will still obtain the IP address automatically. Type in the Open DNS Preferred DNS server settings of 24.25.5.60. Type in the Open DNS Alternate DNS server settings of 24.25.5.61. Reboot your PC and enjoy the speed.

Can't get wireless to work on laptop


You may use the System restore utility on windows by going to all programs then Accessories... Open system Tools and then System Restore. You may resotre your system to an earlier time, time when you are still able to connect to your router wirelessly.

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

Internet Explorer is not conecting


You may have a modem or router problem, not problems in your computer. Try resetting your modem and router (if you have one). Turn off power, wait about a minute, then turn them back on. Sometimes that is all that is needed.

If you have a router connected to the modem, eliminate that by connecting your computer directly to the modem's network jack. If you can connect then, you know you need to replace the router.

Try another computer if you still can't connect when running directly to the modem. (You should be able to find someone with a laptop who can try for you.) Connection failure then can only mean the modem is bad. In many cases a bad modem will be replaced by your service provider.

It is also possible you managed to get a virus or worm into your computer at some point, and that has broken the networking function in Windows. You could try using System Restore to take the computer back to an earlier time when you were able to connect. If the trouble is due to malicious software, though, System Restore may not be available. Some bad software disables that so you can't use it.

Connected to wireless OK but no internet


You have to reset the modem by holding the reset key from the back side for 5 seconds, and re-configure it by going to 192.168.254.254 and re-configure it from Quick-Start by following all the instruction given by your Wireless Provider, or configure your own in case you are NOT using it for InterNet access
