Hi.

The cable & wireless system is not capable of picking up the digital freeview frequencies.
Idealy you need to put a new aerial on the roof,
If this is not possible try an indoor aerial that you to plug in to the mains electrical supply.

If you're Bell sympatico is a wireless modem/router and your laptop has built in wireless on it you just need to connect to the wireless signal of the Bell sympatico then that should be the time you can access internet with the laptop, But if your Bell sympatico is only a plain DSL modem you need to get a wireless router that will share the internet to your laptop and desktop so you can roam in your house with your laptop here is a sample of wireless router Linksys WRT54G.

Hope that helps........

Bought a new computer. would like to download from old to new.


Three choices

Networking:
  • Get a 4-port wireless router (wireless for future upgrades like wireless printers, laptops or WirelessNetworkAccessStorage). Belkin has lifetime warranty and great customer support. Linksys is Cisco's generic line. They're good too because of who makes them, but sometimes* a headache to set up.
  • Set up your router via the instruction that come with it. Take care when naming the connection or SSD as this cannot contain any offensive language, due to FCC regulations.
  • Disable the wireless aspect or set a wireless password.
  • Set the entire drive(s) on your old PC for sharing by right clicking on the drive in Windows Explorer, selecting Sharing & Security and checking the appropriate boxes after being warned that you are about to share the drive.. or just share each individual folder you wish to move.
  • Create a new folder somewhere on your new computer, but never in Windows or Program Files. Desktop is fine but don't clutter it with a bunch of icons, in ... or put new folder in My Documents.
  • Hook up both computers by plugging each into a port on the router.
  • Start the Network Setup Wizard from Control Panel. Your network type will be "Other" and click Next, put a tick by "... computers connect through a hub..." and click Next. Put a tick in the appropriate boxes, clicking next, repeat until you get to the computer name, etc. Name your new computer, give a description (like One of Two, One of Five, Two of Three) of your computer. Create a Network name on the next page, it'll probably already say HOME, MSHOME or WORKPLACE. You can name it whatever you want. Now you will have a different box that asks if you wish to enable printer and file sharing. Say yes, Okay out of the warning after you read it and then click Next after reviewing the info. Create a Network Disc or just do the same on the new computer.
  • Reboot both machines
  • Go to My Network Places on the new computer
  • You should see the shared drive, click on it and move your files to your new computer.
All the old components in your old system are most likely still sought by others. Whether it be memory, processors, Power Supply, CD-Roms or the MotherBoard and a lot of teh parts can be switched over to your new computer... including the old hard drive. Do not give anyone the License Key off the back of your old computer. That can be used on another computer you own, but only one, under the changed hardware clause of the contract. If purchased new and someone privateers that key from you, you can still contact microsoft as owner and reactivate your new PC with the key, by telling them you have changed hardware. That will put an end to the use of the computer with the stolen key unless Windows Updates was compromised.

Expanding:
Your new system should have bays for more drives. By adding the old drive as a slave drive on the second HDD Controller you can give yourself more storage space.

External Hard Drive Enclosure: (These can be purchased separately, with no hard drive installed)
Open the enclosure, plug your drive into it & close the enclosure
Power on your new system
Plug the new drive into the power receptacle/surge protector
Plug it into your USB connection (or however it connects to your PC)
Windows should discover the drive immediately and ask what you wish to do. Open the drive with Windows Explorer and copy the files you want to your new drive

Do not try and copy WINDOWS folder to your new system or any programs unless programs are stand alone. If the programs require installation, use the disk. Anything else could cause instability on your new system if moved to the wrong place.

Power comes from light to switch.want to wire in another switch (same box) to operate another separate light


OK .. for this to work, you would need to confirm that the power cable is also in this wall box. So in that wall box you need the existing power cable, the existing light cable, and a new light cable. All the cables being 2 wire with ground. Then just jumper the black power wire top the new switch, and connect the new light , black wire to the switch, the whites will all be together ..
If there is only one cable in this wall box , then the power is run to some other box and you need a neutral for the new light. That may mean rewiring the power tyop get it to the wall box, or rewing the new light to get power from it.

Digital TV problems


You are suffering from a poor signal. Digital TVs will display 'blocking' (partial freezing of the picture in square or rectangular blocks) or total freezing of the picture, when the signal is too weak.

You don't say if this is a recent problem on a set that has been working correctly - that info. would be helpful. However, things to check include:

Has the aerial moved (wind?)
Are you using a new extension coax cable? If so try another one, as connections may be faulty.
If this a new TV, and you have not used digital previously, your aerial may not be high enough gain for a digital signal, but that is unlikely unless it's a nery old aerial.

My 2 year old remote is not working at all. It is powered up...can I reset..?


My remote is just one month short of being 2 years old and also died. I have tried to reset it myself and with logitech. I have spent approx. 6 hours trying to solve the problem. THEN I was told to buy a new one @ $349.00 and Best Buy said they would be so kind to come to my home to set it up for me for $149.00.
At this point I think the 890 is programed to die at 2 years old. To solve my problem I am going to rewire the TV and move the cable box to the living room where the TV is instead of using a remote to send the signal through the wall. I give up! I'm sure using my cable co. will be much easier, and they do come to the house and service their products.

Router issues in my apartment.


When to moved into the penthouse, there are more walls between the wireless router and the laptop in the bedroom. The walls are probably reinforced concrete walls which will stop or weaken the radio waves penetrating into different rooms. When you lived in a house this was not a problem.
The only way to solve this problem is to move the wireless router near an opening such as a door and move the laptop as close as possible to the wireless router to get a better signal strength.
The outer way is to install a wireless repeater or connect a long network cable to the router and the laptop.

Setting Up a Wireless Network


You can still use your existing Linksys router with your cable modem. In fact the router your have is designed to work with DSL/Cable Broadband connections.

1. Make sure to properly connec the devices in your network. Modem will be connected to the Internet port of the router. Then, laptop will be connected to one of the 4 Ethernet ports of the router. For initial setup of your router with modem, you need to hardwire laptop to the router.
2. Press and hold reset at the back of the router for about 15 seconds.
3. After 15 seconds turn off the router and then turn off the modem. Wait for a minute.
4. Power on modem and wait for the lights to be ready.
5. When modem lights are on, turn on router.
6. There should be 4 lights on. Power should be steady green. Internet, WLAN and Ethernet port.
7. Checked if you have Internet connectivity on your laptop while it is wired to the router.
8. If Internet is working, disconnect laptop from wired connection to the router and check available wireless network that laptop can detect.
9. The default wireless network name that the Linksys router broadcasts is "linksys". Connect to it which is an unsecured wireless network.
10. Once you are successfully connected, check Internet.

Hope this helps!

Configuring DSL for All RJ-45 Jacks


the simpliest way is to have a wireless/ wired 4 ports router and install it beside your modem and locate where your Cat 5 cables central end is. Identify the Cat 5s that are connected to the 5 locations of your PCs if all of them are not capable of wireless connection you need to add a switch (4 port or 8 port) which you also need to connect to one Lan port of your router.

Hope this helps.
