First check your broad band's signal status by opening a DOS command by choosing run in the start up menu. type cmd and then type ipconfig. Next exit and open control panel, choose internet connection then click. Disable first broadband connection and plug out broad band's power supply. After that reconnect altogether and open a web.

Hi There, I have an Aspire 5610/ BL50 running on Vista. Im having problem connecting to a 3 broadband dongle. Its showing 5 blue bars signal strength but failing to connect. When I use it on another...


you should check the set APN on the vista pc. or if settings are inserted by default, simply uninstall and reinstall the 3 broadband dongle. if problem persists, and you are sure it has worked before, do system restore to a date you think connection was ok. malware or virus may cause modems to fail initializing connection.
thanks for using fixya.

My internet light is blinking but it won't connect


Depending on the make or router, the internet light may just signify that that an internet signal is detected and not that it is actually authenticated to use the internet. If you can get to the diagnostics or log page of the router and look for 'Chap authentication'. If this has failed then the username and/or password is not being accepted by the ISP.

Hi - My 2wire 1701 gateway has steady green power light and steady local network light but the broadband link light is steady amber. My computer is receiving the WiFi signal but I cannot get any internet...


The broadband link light tells you the status of the connection between the modem and the broadband servers in your area. Green means everything is A-Ok while amber means your modem is not picking up a broadband signal.

Try turning the modem off and on and also make sure the cables are secure while you're at it. If the broadband light is still amber, the only thing you could do next is to call your internet service provider.

Sometimes cannot connect, sometimes losing internet connection.


Are you using a wireless router/access point or is this a wire connection?

If it is wireless, you might just need to relocate where your wireless router is located, many times building construction materials can create RFI and cause the signal to be weak and drop connections more often.

The other problem might be the fault of your ISP. If they are having equipment problems, they might actually have a router that is failing. If you are unsure of the connection to your network, simply contact your ISP and ask that they perform a signal check or to PING your router from their side and measure the signal strength and return rate on the signal.

The last possibility is that your network adapter in your computer might be having problems. There is one check that you can perform on your network adapter to verify that it is working properly. With out being connected to the Internet, open a DOS window (Command.exe). At the prompt enter the following command:

PING 127.0.0.1

The computer will perform an internal loopback test. If it comes back OK, then most likely your network adapter is working fine.

If everything checks out, you might just have a bad router and will need to get it replaced. Hope this helps you out.

Cheers,

Keith

Try reseating te broadband connection to the router.

It soundslike your router works if it connects to your laptop with a great signal. But its not sending any information through.

Try reseating. if it does not work. you might need to do a fresh reinstall of the router. Usually the broadband connections attach itself to a mac address of a network card. If you recently put a new router the network cards MAC address is different and it might not send signals through. like for me for cable i have the same issue.

Try this let me know how it does. If any problems please let me know.

I hope this helps

Dropping wireless connection


The problem may not be with your router. I had a situation a year ago with the modem dropping the signal everyday. I spent hours on the phone with verizon tech support to no avail. They sent someone out to my home and he put a filter on the main line coming into the house which didn't resolve the issue. Then verizon insisted the modem was bad so they sent me an actiontec. Turns out that the problem had nothing to do with me. They try to squeeze as much bandwith at their switching stations as they can. They switched me over to another hub and viola no more problem.
