It's not uncommon for router installation disks to act up in this fashion. If you're connected to the internet in the fashion you want to be (wired or wireless) then you're good to go.

In fact, when I worked Internet Tech Support I urged folks to *not* use the installation disk, as often it creates more problems than it solves!

If you're unable to connect through the means you want to then a good start would be to reset the router back to factory defaults. You should be able to find a reset button (often more like a small hole) on the router itself. Get a paper clip and hold in on the button (with the router plugged in) for about fifteen seconds, then release. It'll go through its diagnostics then come back up with a clean slate. THEN see if you can get online.

Let us know what happens.

I can't get connected keeps saying Netflix has encountered an error

Netflix requires three things to function: a working internet connection, DNS to be able to resolve and a firewall that allows it to be reached. If you have a working internet connection (are able to browse other websites) then try to access Netflix from another device on your home network. If the other device doesn’t work too, then your home network is experiencing issues connecting on. If you remove the device from the home network (for example turn WiFi off and connect to 4g) and you still experience the same issue, then the problem is either with your Netflix account or Netflix servers are down. Hope this helps!

Router doesn't connect netflix

Are you able to connect to the internet at all? Either Netflix website is down or your location is blocked from accessing Netflix. Do you have any firewall set up?

Unidentfied network is connected, no internet access, i see a chair between the internet acces and the laptop. tried to reboot everything several times, turned off firewalls, nothing helps/

That unidentified network, have you connected to that before and browsed the internet? Just because you connect to a network, doesn't mean that network is setup to allow internet access. It could be a simple fact that you need to connect to a different network.

Lost capability to connect to wireless network. Can connect to local but not wireless

There are a couple of things you can try here...first, you can make sure that you are not in "selective startup". There are times that when you are in selective startup, there is a service that can be shut down that keeps the wireless from seeing the internet. Second, if you have Norton or McAfee, they are the biggest cause of a loss of internet connect and it is the way that they handle the firewall settings. In most cases, deleting these programs or manipulating the firwall setting within them will get your internet connection back up. Your wireless network will say it is connected and with a strong signal, but if you cannot get on the internet, then that is most likely firewall. McAfee turns the windpws firewall off and uses it's own, that is where the problems come into play.

Login error 81003004fo yahoo

You might have some options to fix it: firstly; this error occurs when your connection preferences are not properly set. I'm not talking about your Yahoo! ID and Password here, but you may need to adjust certain features depending on what network you're on. Maybe, i think you should check your firewall settings. If you use Personal Firewall, make sure it allows your connection to receiving incoming connections and allows you to use yahoo messenger,check it out, may be it blocked your yahoo messenger. if a firewall protects your network, it may block yahoo messenger when it tries to connect to the server. You need to change your connection settings, click the Messenger menu in yahoo messenger and select Connection Preferences. Select Firewall With No Proxies. Select your Internet Connection type from the pull-down menu at the bottom and enter your Home Country if the adoptions aren’t grayed out. Click OK and login again using the new settings. If this option doesn’t work, click Connection Preferences in Yahoo! Messenger again and select No Network Detection. Try to login again using the new settings. In some instances, you may need to provide yahoo messenger with the IP address of your firewall or proxy server (you can get this information from your network administrator or from your Internet service provider). Click Messenger and select Connection Preferences again. Select Use Proxies. Enable either the HTTP Proxy or the SOCKS Proxy as needed and provide the proper address. Click OK and login again using the new settings.Or other way, open your Internet Explorer>Go to File>Then, 'uncheck Work Offline', make sure your Internet connection is not working offline. Then, close Internet Explorer, try to sign in your yahoo messenger.thirdly, if you are using IM9 there are sign in problems. This is what yahoo has to say. Try an updated version of Yahoo! Messenger 9.0( This latest build includes a fix for the sign-in issues that have been affecting some users. If you were seeing an error code“81003004” when trying to sign in, this latest version may fix that problem. Even if you were experiencing a different kind of sign-in issue, I recommend installing this latest version. Hope it was helpful and it works to solve your problems.. Please kindly support me.. Thank You!

Internet shut down.

Try changing your power settings to Always On when downloading overnight. If the machine enters sleep or hibernate mode, it will drop any active downloads.

Connection problems

If your connected to a router, is your router connected to a firewall as well.

One thing I have noticed too on Vista is even though you tell windows security to turn off the firewall it doesn't mean it is completely turned off unless you go into the control panel, select admistration tools (if you have access to it), double click on services, select windows firewall, and disable it.

Then it is shut down for good.
