1994 Grand Cherokee, 5.2 V8 shuts off when hot. Cool for an hour or 2, starts up ok for a half hour or so, then dies again. No trouble codes except 12 and 55; I pulled fuses to check them, hence the code...


Your engine computer is bad. It's a good thing that you mentioned about the check engine light dying also, as this is a classic sign of a bad ecm. I have repaired more than one of these Jeep computers, replacing the three power capacitors located inside the computer, and they have worked for years afterwards. If you don't have the skills or knowledge to repair the ecm, get yourself a rebuilt ecm unit and swap it out.

I've had a Netgear WG111 usb wireless adaptor since 2007. It has suddenly stopped working.My computer cannot connect to the internet/ modem - it says no adaptor detected. Help. Can the adaptor just die?


yes they can and do I personally have had 3 or more just die, especially anything USB, they are real bad for just stopping, It is usually the USB interface and not the actual device that fails. with USB, it is usually a power spike" that kills them.

Forgot password to log on for my wireless connection trying to add my Wii and now cant even get my laptop back online


Find your manual for the router or go to the manufacturers website and download a pdf version of it. You can do a hard reset which will loose all the settings but you can then get into it with the default passwords. Unfortunetly most wireless routers seem to die after about a year and they do so gradually.At first they loose connections then they just don;t connect. You may get out for a while using a wired connection but eventually that goes too. You can get a good router for $30 and up so if the rest doesn't fix it the first time you will probably need to replace it.

The xbox live adaptor goes red


Red means hardware failure.
If they are steady red, that means they are ready to be connected to a network (must have been knocked off the router).

In the 360 System Dboard, go to the system blade and select Network Settings, then Edit Settings, and then Wireless Mode.
Test the connection finally.

I cant connect just one network


Be sure that your wireless network is working
Check your wireless router settings
Check if you see any other wireless network available on your computer
Test connection, see if you pulled an IP address
Go to the Windows desktop
Select Start then Run
In the text box type: cmd (WIN98/SE type command)
At the command prompt type: ipconfig
4. What does it read as the IP address?
* If it reads 192.168. something dot something then you are pulling
an IP address and are connected to the network. The problem is
software related, check your firewall, and wireless card configuration.
Also check any WPA or WEP encryption keys. Check with the respective
manufactures.
* If it reads 0.0.0.0 for the IP address you are not connected to the network.
* Check your connection configuration and the adaptor.
* Check with the respective manufactures.
STEP TWO/ Basic troubleshooting continued....Testing the adaptor
1. Go to Windows desktop
2. Select Start then Run
3. In the text box type: cmd (WIN98/SE type command)
A DOS window will open.
4. At the prompt type: ping 127.0.0.1 (reserved IP address for all adaptors)
5. Check the line that reads "packets sent = 4, Received = 4, Lost = 0
A. Zero is good, the adaptor is working. Again check the connection
configuration,and the adaptor configuration.
It may be a power issue especially with older or less expensive computers
or wireless cards.
* Check the antenna location, are you inside or outside, look for interference.
* Check with the respective manufactures.
B. If it reads all 4 packets lost, the adaptor is not functioning.
* Check and update the drivers, Contact the respective manufactures.
* If it shows any number of packets lost (you are dropping packets)
it is an adaptor or signal strength issue (generally form the laptop side,
not being able to reach back) especially with older or less expensive
computers or wireless cards.
* Update the drivers
* Check antenna location, or distance from the signal
* Contact the respective manufactures.

Power light comes on, goes off, comes on, goes off repeatedly


If it has been left unused for a year,the battery had probably died - it may attempt to charge, but won't hold a charge. Replace it.
