    Usually with a modem connection it creates two or more dialup connections setting the last install as the default. if you have overwritten your last install it cannot be gotten back

Hp nc8000 laptop. Installing used hard drive. Laptop doesn't recognize hard drive when installingXP Pro with disc. Recognized in bios. With install disc only sees previous opsys partition.


Verify that all previous data, partitions, format version etc.... has been removed. If this is a used hard drive it would be advised to erase and clean the drive before use. This can be done with various disk tools or boot disks and/or various open source software products. This is usually a user preferance when using tools of this type. Once the disk has been cleaned and initialized it should be ready for the Windows installation.
If after cleaned and initialized the disk does not show under windows the it could be no good!!!

Lost install disk


You don't even need the installation disk! Just do these easy steps:
Plug in your PC directly to your router. And make sure it is turned on. Also plug in your MODEM into the routers modem port.
On your computer open up Internet Explorer. Then in the address box type in: routerlogin,net
User: admin Pass: password
if password for the password does not work then just leave the box blank. Then just complete the steps.
If this works or if you need help then PLEASE email me:

email me wither it works or not!

New, second modem won't recognize modem


You probably need to install network adapter driver on your new hard drive.
Go to my computer properties, select "Device Manager" and see if there is a network adapter installed and working.

Installing BT Voyager 105 on XP Pro PC shows newdev.dll error


I recently had this problem after buying a voyager 210 modem/router to replace the voyager 105 (in my case supplied for AOL broadband)

I tried to uninstall the voyager 105 and encountered exactly this problem - newdev.dll missing, Admin privileges required

After alot of Internet searching I found no answers. But in desperation tried this and it worked. I am by no means any computer expert so don’t blame me if this does not work for you, or damages your machine.

To install my 210 modem I was following instructions found here -http://www.sohodata.co.uk/soho.htm But first I had to get rid of the 210

Here is what I did, exactly as I did it (some of it is probably unnecessary) Further below is a condensed version I expect would work.

1) Firstly I restarted in safe mode by pressing F8 in start-up ( I was doing this because i had remembered an administrator profile and considered attempting to uninstall from there.)

2) I logged on as the administrator.

3) Attempted to uninstall the voyager 105 via control panel and via the uninstall icon in the programme folder. - Both Failed with the above-mentioned problem.

4) I navigated to programme files. (Start> My computer> C drive> Programme files)

5) There I highlighted the folders "British Telecom”, "BT Voyager 105 ADSL modem", " Voyager Modem Drivers", "Voyager Test". I cut these folders wholesale and pasted them to my USB pen/stick (incase I needed to put them back)

6) I then ran disk cleanup (Start> All Programmes> Accessories> System Tools.)

7) Then I turned off my computer and unplugged the USB pen/stick and the USB and DSL cables from the back of the Voyager 105.

8)I turned the computer back on (starting up normally), logged on with my normal username which has admin privileges. Ran the driver install for my new router (previously downloaded from BT at –(http://www.btopenworld.com/broadband/adhoc_pages/driver_homepage.html#yahoodrivers) It stated that a BT driver was already installed.

9) Navigated to add/remove programmes (Start> Control panel> add/remove programmes) selected the BT driver from the list selected uninstall …. AND IT DID IT! No error, or messages about newdev.dll or privileges.

10) This left me free to install my new driver and go through its install process ending in plugging the USB into the back of the modem and having internet again.

Here is what I expect would work

1) Turn on and log on to any account with admin privileges.

2) Navigate to programme files. (Start> My computer> C drive> Programme files).

3) Select and delete (or to be safe, cut and paste to a removable drive) the folders "British Telecom", "BT Voyager 105 ADSL modem", " Voyager Modem Drivers", and "Voyager Test".

4) Remove removable drive and run disk clean up (Start> All Programmes> Accessories> System Tools).

5) Then I turned off my computer and unplugged existing modem.

6) Turn on computer log back onto account with admin privileges. Navigate to add/remove programmes (Start> Control panel> add/remove programmes) selected the BT driver from the list selected uninstall.

7) Install desired drivers/modem.

Delited files in ad or remove program and my modem keeps saying error so wont to delite xp and put it back on but my xp disk is older than the one on the computer please help


See this is not the disk from the previous installation was done. It was done either from pirated CD (if corrunt one is original) or The current one is pirated.

if corrent CD is original, simply uninstall the SW then reinstall from current CD, otherwise get the latest version of the SW ( offcourse licensed) and install the new one after uninstalling olderone, or update in order to keep your setting same.

Goodluck

Dynex Router problem


You should first verify you have a internet connection to your computer directly from modem. If you do then turn your computer off unplug modem from power supply and remove ethernet connection. Then with cable only attached to modem plug in power supply. Allow enough time for modem to boot completely up. Then plug ethernet back into modem and the other end into router. Then power up router. Allow adequate time to router to sync up. If you never set up your router initially with all security features and access codes for wireless you may need to run set up disk. If this was all previously done then power up computer go to CONNECT TO option on START menu. Your wireless network should be listed with the name you gave it. Select your network. If it is a secured network it will ask for access codes. Enter the codes and you should be able to access internet. If not you may need to run set up disk again or contact manufacturer of router.Good luck

When I try to reinstall my router I can't get beyond the first step as the disk thinks our computer is not connected to the internet when it is. It convinces my computer that it is no longer connected....


Step 1: Turn off your computer, router, and disconnect the power to the modem.

Step 2: Connect one cable between the modem and the router's internet port

Step 3: Connect another cable between the router and the computer.

Step 4: Turn on the computer, then the router, then the modem - in that order.

Step 5: Now try running the setup disk.

Explanation: The modem has a security feature that disallows more than one device from connecting to it at one time. Once a specific device is connected, the modem expects that device to be connected at all times. If you unplug your computer from the modem and plug in the router without disconnecting the power to the modem, the connection will be rejected. This probably explains the reason for the error message you were receiving.

Furthermore, you do not need the installation disk in order to install your router. Open your browser and type http://192.168.1.1 in the address bar. A username and password screen will appear, the default is usually admin/admin for both, but if that doesn't work just try admin in the password field. When you have successfully logged into the web utility, you will be able to alter the settings at your discretion. For the most part the router will work upon proper cable connections, however you will want to enable security features to prevent attackers from gaining access to your computer.
