Question about IBM NetVista PC Desktop

1 Answer

Certain Sites hang and don't load to browser on one computer but does on another

I have 3 computers with wireless adapters (a Laptop using internal Linksys, a Dell Optiplex using Netgear USB and a Compact desktop with a D-link slotcard antenna) all on a secure D-Link Router connected to Bellsouth DSL.

The laptop has had no problems going to any websites so far, but the problem I'm having is with the Dell Optiplex that has no problem going to most sites, but there are a few that just hangs and won't download or connect to the site. I've use Internet Explorer and FireFox Browsers and they both hang with the hourglass waiting and waiting with the site screen never connecting. Why would one computer connect to all sites while the other just hangs on a few without giving any error or anything, it just says it's loading but never does! There's more memory and a faster processor on the Dell so I know that's not the problem. What could it be?

Now many web sites use flash player for their add content as well as for the menu content. if you have not installed flash player these sites will just show loading but will not load. more over what happens is the site will check whether your sys has the app installed atherwise it will prompt you to install with an yellow information bar. Once you install this the site loads as usual. The problem is when you have a slow internet connection the site is not able to check your sys for prompting you to install the required app. thus the site hangs. Check if you have installed adobe flash player activex 9 player.

Motorola 1c743 wireless adapter reset


You modem needs to be powered on, linked to your cable or phone connection, and then linked to your router with an Ethernet cord. You also need a base computer (connected to the router with Ethernet as well) to adjust your router settings, like password and router name, and assure that you are communicating with the Internet.


Install your wireless adapter software to your laptop or computer that will be using the Internet wirelessly.You will be prompted at some point during the installation to plug in the adapter. (If prompted, restart your computer.)



Plug the adapter into your computer or laptop. Some adapters come as USB-compatible (Universal Serial Bus) plug-and-play devices, and others are PCMIA (Personal Computer Memory Card International Association) cards that go into a special wide slot in laptops.

Go to your computer control panel and click on Network Connections when the software download is complete (if the control panel does not load automatically). Your new adapter should be now be listed. Select the icon and look at the description to make sure that it is connected. If not, right-click the adapter icon and click Enable.


Double-click the adapter to search for a wireless connection. Refresh the list of connections available until you find the name of your router. Enter any passwords that you set up for your wireless router and then connect to the Internet.

How to install an wirless adapter to mi desktop


Install a wireless network adapterIn areas that are served by a wireless network, you can connect to a computer network without using a cable, and surf the Internet or connect with other computers. To connect to a wireless network, your computer needs a wireless network adapter.
Many new computers-especially laptops-come with wireless adapters. Before using your computer, check to see if it already has a wireless network adapter.
If your computer doesn't have a wireless network adapter, you can install one.
Install a wireless USB network adapter. Most people prefer this type of adapter for any type of computer, because it's easy to install.
Install a wireless CardBus or CF network adapter. For portable computers, this type of adapter (also called a PCMCIA or PC Card) is easier to travel with than a USB adapter, because it is often smaller and fits securely in the PC Card slot on the side of the computer.
Install a wireless internal network adapter. If you have a desktop computer, you may prefer an internal adapter so that you can use the USB port to connect another accessory.
The type of adapter you install depends on your computer and your level of expertise.
How to determine if you already have a wireless network adapterMany portable computers manufactured after 2000 have wireless networking built in. However, because the antenna is hidden inside the computer, it's not easy to see.
To see which network adapters are currently installed in your computer
1.
Click Start, and then click Control Panel.
69010-click-control-panel.gif 2.
Click Network and Internet Connections.
69010-click-network-and-internet-connections.gif 3.
Under or pick a Control Panel icon, click Network Connections.
69010-click-network-connections.gif 4.
Microsoft Windows XP displays your network adapters. Wireless network adapters are labeled Wireless Network Connection. If an adapter displays a red X, it is disconnected. If the Network Connections window is blank, your computer doesn't yet have a wired or wireless network adapter.

My belkin n1 vision router hang at least 3 times a week regularly, what wrong with it? I must pull out powercable and plug in again in 5 seconds will work again or sometimes it will automatic restart but...


1.Log into router. Using either 192.168.0.1 to 192.168.1.1 in a browser window that is ( internet Explorer or Firefox)
2. Verify wireless router name( on the computer) >>> ( on/off) ( router status window)
3.Note router name you are connecting to.
4.. Check the laptop do ipconfig /all to see current IP addresses.
5. Set the laptop up in the router by WEP KEY or MAC address. This set up in the "security tab" in the router. using 192.168.0.1 or 192.168.1.1 to access through a browser.
6.Note router name you are connecting to.
7. Move the laptop about 20ft away and try to log on to the internet.
This is for all routers to set up wirelessly.
8. check for firmware update at the manufacturers site for your model router
9. cell phones, cordless phones, digital TV's, can affect the data signal from a router. Also distance from the router can be a factor. If your router is in a basement place the router to a upper floor and center it in the room.

Wireless adapter gives limited websites


hi debbie
the fact that your computer has internet access shows that your adapter and router is working well

the reason you may be denied access to certain websites may be because of feature called trusted sites in internt explorer

if you hav downloaded mozilla it would import setting from IE so trusted sites would remain

to disable this in ie go to tools>> internet options >>> connections >>> put it on accept all cookies and disable trusted sites

Wireless adapter not showing up in network conections,icon


This happened to me when I had to install a wireless router in my house using my laptop to initialize the network for the first time.
The start up software messed with my settings for wireless detection on my laptop. It turned off the automatic detect for wireless networks in the
"Wireless Zero Configuration"
(This has the settings for the 802.11 wireless adapters
i.e. the one that comes with the R4000 presario)

to get to this hit start>run...
and type in this:
%SystemRoot%\system32\services.msc /s

go to "Wireless Zero Configuration" and enable automatic startup
, if the service is stopped, start it.
hit the apply button to save your settings.

HP dv1000 laptop and internal wireless modem


Although you have internal wireless, you are capable of attaching an external wireless device. For example, you could attached a D-Link WUA-1340 USB Wireless G adapter (http://www.dlink.com/products/?sec=0&pid=477), or, if you have a PCI port, you can use a Linksys WPC300N Wireless-N Notebook adapter (http://www.linksys.com/servlet/Satellite?c=L_Product_C2&childpagename=US%2FLayout&cid=1144763513196&pagename=Linksys%2FCommon%2FVisitorWrapper&lid=1319686869B07). Either device with any brand will work just like your internal wireless. In fact, because you chose to use an external device, you may get a better wireless signal. Because internal wireless devices are inside the computer, it is more difficult to received a signal than with an external device.
