I can't use high speed internet

All of the sudden I can't go online using my DSL connection. I can go online using a dial up connection but that's it. I've tried different cables and different locations. I think it's the actual port where you plug the plug in. Thanks for any help

Re: I can't use high speed internet

Can you be more specific as to why you cannot use DSL? your computer is equipped an ethernet port which IS the high speed port. Have you troubleshot the router? have you made sure you ethernet cable is rated CAT5 or higher? Have you called your Network provider? You can verify and active connection by plugging in the network cable and going into your NETWORK PREFERENCES.

Keep me posted.

I have a Belkin router, and a decent internet connection. However, whenever I try to watch video online (e.g. Youtube, or BBC i-player), the connection is very slow, and seems to stop every few seconds. ...

Wait. Play a little (to start the buffer), then pause the video manually for a few minutes (to allow the buffer to fill).

It ain't the router's fault.

Modern browser-plugin streaming client video players (e.g., Silverlight) need some time with your internet connection to learn your best-available resolution and how much to buffer. After a while, it will improve "all by itself."

After several minutes or so of consistent throughput, some players will upgrade your resolution. You'll see the movie suddenly get sharper.

Another tip: Friday evenings and Saturday nights the traffic is heavy and so the internet is slow. Sunday mornings you'll get better throughput.

Just bought the apple ibook g3 clamshell

If you can detect wireless connections in your area, then you have a wireless card in your Apple.
You cannot connect to the Internet unless you have a DSL or cable modem that connects to an Internet Service Provider.
You can connect to the Internet using a public access WiFi hot spot, these are located at McDonalds, Star Bucks and at the airport etc. and some Internet Cafe. There maybe some charges for these Internet connection.

Macbook and I-touch loses wireless connection with versalink dsl

It sounds like the dsl modem and the gateway should be sync'd in the following way:
1. Turn everything off and disconnect the dsl for a bit. Make sure even the wifi stuff is off.
2. Turn on your gateway and let it cyce up.
3. Plug the dsl ethernet cable into your gateway, and to your phone line, then plug in the power to the dsl.
This will cause the dsl modem to "find" the gateway IP address and connect.
4. Turn everything else back on.
This should eliminate all the drops...
Let me knowhow it goes...

I bought my daughter a laptop (elonex onet) but i dont no how to put internet on it thanks ceri

You have this in the Mac Laptops category, but it's not a Mac. This laptop is running Linux.

The Elonex ONEt has wireless Internet connectivity. That means you can use a wireless router in your home in order to use it online. If you already have one, the system should be able to set itself up to use that connection on its own when you open a web browser. The web browser on your system is BonEcho/Firefox.

Another option is to run a Cat5e, also called an Ethernet cable, line from a router (or from your cable modem or DSL modem) directly to the laptop, since your laptop also has an ethernet port. This looks like a regular phone jack, but it's a little bigger.

Best of luck!

Possible modem problem

Make sure you log on details are correct. Confirm the dial out credentials. The line just needs a dial tone, which you can test with a land line phone.

Yes, you can use the ethernet 10/100baseT connector for high speed, the 56K modem for dial up or an optional Airport card for wireless

You need: * A wireless-enabled computer. Many computers made over the last three years are already wireless capable, or they can operate wirelessly with adapters. * A wireless router. This will serve as your Wi-Fi access point, the hub of your network. * Broadband Internet access. While you can use your wireless router without any Internet access at all, or use dial-up, experts agree that there?s real value in accessing online content via DSL or cable and making it available to every computer in your house. The cost of doing so, like with the hardware, has dropped dramatically in the past several years. When you set up your network using the wireless router, you?ll need to identify that network on each of your wireless computers and during the installation process for your Lexmark wireless printers or all-in-one devices. You?ll be asked about your service set identifier (SSID), which is basically the name of your network. Don?t forget to consider the security of your network early in your decision process. * Common security types for networks include WEP, WPA and WPA2, and there is usually also an option for no security. At a minimum, you should look for WPA or WPA2 security and follow the manufacturer?s instructions to encrypt your signal and set your own password. A password isn't mandatory, but if you don't use one, it's far easier for others to access your network, and potentially your computer.
