    This appears to be a possible dirver issue. Some recovery CDs only re-install the OS and requires an additional CD with drivers for the specific PC (depending on manufacturer). It is possible that your PC is still missing the network drivers. Right Click on My Computer, select Properties and then click on the Hardware tab and then the Device Manager button. Locate Network Adapters and see if it appears normal. If you see a red X or yellow marking on the adpater, then you are missing the drivers and will need to download them through another PC.

Mak sure you have installed the drivers correctly. to know, you cna go to device manager, by clicking start, click control panel, click system, click hardware, then device manager, do you see any yellow exclamation mark or red X? if one of those say network adapter or ethernet adapter then the driver is not installed. if you cant see any yellow exclamation point or mark. all drivers are installed.

You have to connect the tablet to your Arris 862 gateway "comcast modem" the key to your wireless is on the bottom of the modem on white sticker. The key is case sensitive most generally all in caps. Your network name is as well on the sticker should be HOME- and a 4 digit number. To get the tablet to connect you need go into "settings" on the tablet and then tap "wireless or may say WIFI", Find the comcast modem/router name "the Home- whatever number it is click it then it should prompt you to type in the network key.

I can not get a internet connection.. computer was reformatted and it tells me i have no internet connection... help please


If you are running windows xp after the reformat you will have to load all of the device drivers. Ethernet adapter is one of them. So you will need to use a pc that has internet connection and go to IBM's web site and download drivers to flash drive then install then to the IBM thinkpad

Can't use either Microsoft Live Mail or Lookout Express v6 with Belkin Router. Can't send or receive email Can you tell me what the email setup is for either one? Both email programs probably use the same...


Ask COMCAST for the names of their POP-server and of their MAIL-server, and configure Outlook Express to use those names.

Microsoft Live Mail is "web-based" -- all you need to do is to web-surf to their web-site, login, and click "send/receive" or click "compose" and later "send".

I upgraded internet exp 6.0 to 8.0.window not running properly


Judging by the way the problem was handled I can only suggest a re-installation of windows.

You should always use the ADD REMOVE option for programs etc. OR the uninstaller that may have come with it.

Almost all versions of INTERNET explorer integrate with other areas of windows using common DLL files etc.

By deleting it via the programs folder and then deleting windows from linux you may have corrupted the installation of windows itself.

Sorry for the news but thats as I see it.
