Question about Microsoft Windows Vista Home Basic Edition for PC

1 Answer

Hi folks, I have Sitecom wifi in my home - works a treat with my pc. It used to work with my Toshiba laptop. Then I stayed in an hotel in France, fiddled around successfully to get wifi in the hotel, and now back home, the laptop now refuses to accept my home wifi, stating that 'the security settings of Sitecom are not compatible'. Tried everything - except, of course, the correct thing! Ta, Clive.

What does network key mean


The Network Key is the password used to log on to a network (Usually WiFi). If at home, this information is usually located on the router itself (a sticker on the bottom). If it is not at home (like a hotel, or other public WiFi) ask whatever customer service is available for the password.

What do I need to use the internet when I visit france on holiday/with my laptop.


Many hotels in Europe offer free WiFi connections and the hotels will provide you with the necessary sign-on information when you check in.

Your computer should automatically find the connection then all you have to do is sign on with the information the hotel provided.

In addition, many hotels also have business centers where free computers are available which provide instant access to the internet. In those cases I recommend using the hotel computer to protect information that you have on your laptop.

Hacking is a major problem in Europe and often hackers will have locked onto your computer within seconds after you have logged in...especially on public WiFi networks.

This can and does happen even on "secure" sites. You need to be aware of this and avoid accessing any websites where you have confidential information.

Once you return from France, I would suggest running an immediate full system anti-virus scan and I would change all of the passwords in all of the accounts I accessed while I was away.

I can not access Facebook abroad


Hi, Facebook should be as available abroad just as it is at home anywhere that has WiFi such as hotels, Macdonalds etc. without the need to modify anything. A family member has recently returned from France and assured me there were no problems.

The problem is I do not know about using wifi.I mean whats the use of a laptop if you can't transport it


You can transport a laptop and use it anywhere you want, but for reliable internet access when away from home then you will need to find public wifi. This comes in the form of either free public hotspots, such as at McDonalds and Starbucks, or secured wifi which is provided along with another service, such as at a hotel. In order to use any of these services, you need to have a wifi enabled laptop and the correct credentials to connect to the network. For free hotspots such as McDonalds, you don't need any other details other than to select the correct network from the list of available networks and connect. For hotel wifi and the like, you will most likely need a password or key to access the wifi, which is usually provided to you upon request.

Don't forget that laptops existed long before wifi, and that browsing the internet and reading emails isn't the only thing computers were built for!

I have a Toshiba M105-S3041 and the wifi will not stay connected. it will connect for a minute or two then drop it. if i repair the connection it works but it stays connected for a minute or two then drop....


Sometimes it is better to turn off firewall protection and limit your start up programs when you use wifi connection. Firewall protection is not recommended when using a wireless broadband or wifi because it blocks the signal especially on laptop computers.

My wireless laptop gateway won't connect to my router again after going out of town using it at hotel and now it wont connect at home. it will connect on my job with no problem


Hi!

It is possible that the wifi networking where you connect in the Hotel use the same name of you home wifi network!

Try deleting your wifi profiles and reconnect again.

If you don't know how to delete the wifi profiles let me know and I tell you.

Thanks!

Laptop (HP) has wireless setting... but I want to go on the road with it and use the internet while traveling in my motor home or auto. How do I do this. What equipment do I need? It is connection to my...


There is a couple of different ways to do this. 1- you can use the built in wireless in the computer at places that have free wifi ie... McDonald's, Wendy's, BurgerKing, Coffee shops, Malls, hotels, etc... most of these have free wifi. The plus side is it's free, the downside is you are restricted to finding a place with wifi. 2- you can go through your cell phone provider and purchase an air time PC card. With this card you can go on line anywhere anytime as long as you have a signal, same as your cell. I know that just about every hotel/motel out there has free wifi now, and my folks like to travel alot in their motor home, and they told me that they see more and more camp grounds with wifi.

My laptop would not connect to wireless while I was away in a hotel


Open up you're network connections in you're notebook & run the wireless wizard. Search for you're home wireless network.
You should be able to connect to you're home. Remove any other networks you might find. While you're at it I suggest you setup security for you're home network with a password.

Let me know how it goes.
