    Try running IP config (Start\Run\cmd then type IP config) It will appear a series of "series" telling you IP addresses, make sure you have something like 192.168.x.1

My in house telephones are not working,but the internet is working.WHAT CAN I DO TO MAKE THE TEELEPHONE WORK AGAIN.


Have you paid the phone bill? Are you supposed to have phone service?

Providing that you have a contract with the phone company and it's paid up, take a hardwire telephone out to the grey junction box on the outside of the house. Open the junction box and plug your phone into one of the two phone jacks inside, Try the phone. If you get no dial tone, try the other phone jack.

If you get no dial tone from either phone jack, borrow a hardwire telephone from a neighbor and try both jacks again with the borrowed telephone.

If no dial tone with your phone or your neighbor's phone, then the problem is on the phone company's side of that junction box.

If your neighbor's phone works but yours doesn't, the problem is your phones - lightening strike, maybe?

If your phone works in the junction box but not inside the house, then the wiring from the junction box to your house jacks has a bad connection somewhere. Someone - you or someone else - will have the arduous task of tracking down where that bad connection is.

Try placing your laptop as close to the location of their router, removing barriers like walls for best speeds. Maybe your neighbour is having the same problem. Have them unplug the router for 10 sec (no more). Power-cycling once-a-month or so, is a good thing

I lost my internet connection. I use wireless I pick up from a neighbor I've tried system restore it didn't work. I've been without internet for 3 days now I've also tried troubleshooting any ideas


What do you mean by Lost your Internet Connection? Are you using the Internal Modem. If Yes then you can still ask your ISP to provide the connection and you can use that.

I think restore will not work for this, In this case you need to setup it again.

I am getting ready to switch from dial-up to satellite internet service, I have a Compaq Presario SR1730T and need to know what type of wireless router is best or will any wireless router be compatible????


Usually the internet service provider (even satellite) provides a modem/router to access the internet. This being said to purchase a wireless router must mean that you are going to "broadcast" your satellite internet throughout the house so that others in the house can access the internet.

In that case, no it doesn't really matter what kind of wireless router to buy. Just make sure you connect your satellite modem/router (what they send you) into the wireless router correctly. Also, make sure you put a password on that wireless router so that your neighbors or unknown persons do not gain access to your internet/computer.

Thanks.

I've recently moved into a new place and got the right password for the internet and it will let me connect. However, it is only with limited access for some reason and when I try to get on the internet it...


the 'gateway' for the new place changes from place to place. So, you have to call on the ISP(internet service provider) to get the new configuration done for your computer.

thanks.

No internet connection on two desktops


Hi Tony, you think your laptop is connecting to your neighbor's wireless network. So try this.
1:Go to Control Panel, click on network and internet connections, double click NETWORK CONNECTIONS. Point your mouse to the WIRELESS NETWORK CONNECTIONS. It should show that you are connected(and it will show the name of the network that you are connected to). If you do not recognize the name of the network that you are connected to then you are connected to your neighbor's network.

IF YOU ARE CONNECTED TO linksys--unsecured wireless network, there is a chance that your wireless router is not functioning at the moment.

Try this first and i will be waiting if you have a follow up problem.


Good Luck
