To configure a port on your system open windows help. Type in the search window, Ports & search.
Your return key on the keyboard is the Home key.
If you explain in more detail what you want to do with a port I may be able to guide you further.
Tanks for using FixYA
Good luck!

    Hi samudra07. To increase your transfer speed for the internet. tweaking your port is not the answer. Tweaking your TCP/IP is where you need to make changes. First I'll show you where to find your (as you named it communication port). Open Network Conncection. Right click on Internet Connection & left click properties. Click setting in the next window. Click Edit in the next window. As you'll see there is nothing you can do to your port.

    Now lets increase your internet speed through TCP/IP.

    I found a site that helps me not to type this explaination in detail but allows you to understand the concept & increase your speed at the same time. Click the link listed below, scroll down to the title; Let the Tweaking Begin When you have finished I promise your internet speed will be set to it's maximun possible for your system. samudra07 just follow the instruction & please do not skip anything.

    Hello again samudra07. If I could download a good Virus protection program & get for free I would choose McAfee but you can not get the realy good antivirus programs for free. There is a decent antivirus that you can download & use for free. It's called

    AVG. You can download it at this link:

    It is about the best one can get for free.

    Good Luck & kind Regards

You need a valid Windows XP Professional disk that has not been used. The key you entered was either wrong, so make sure you look at it again to see if you typed it correctly. If you typed it correctly then the key was probably already used on another computer. You can only use it once.

How to open the key ports for windows XP professional

You have probably set up your system to use DHCP - that is non-static IPs.

Right Click on your connection, go to properties, click IPv4, properties again
if it says get settings automatically then you are using dynamic IP addressing DHCP... this can cause problems,

To set up your Static IP on your computer
you will need your routers default gateway
you get that by typing ipconfig at the command prompt... found under Start menu ->Accessories, Command Prompt

Type in IPconfig
look for default gateway - write it down.
Go to your ISPs web site and see if you can find their DNS server IP addresses -or search under google - as a last resort use these

All DNS servers are public and free to use.

Then enter your Static IP which is derived from your default gateway. So if your default gateway is then your IP can be anything between and
Subnet =
Enter your default gateway
Enter your DNS server IPs and you should be good to go....

Remember if it all goes horribly wrong for some reason (It shouldn't) then just return and reset everything to get settings to automatic and all will return unrtil another solution is discovered.
