7. Under the General tab, double-click on the Internet Protocol (TCP/IP)
8. A new window appears. On its own General tab, click the box beside Use the following IP address
9. Type in ones until you fill the box up (it should read 111.111.111.111)

Increase your internet speed up to 20% in Windowx XP.


If you use Windows XP Professional then it is possible to squeeze an extra 20% out of your internet connection. By default Windows XP Pro holds back 20% of your Internet speed for various services like windows update and spyware checks.

If you want to tap into this locked speed then make the following changes:

1. Go to Start-> Run-> and type gpedit.msc
2. Expand the Administrative Templates branch
3. Expand the Network tab
4. Highlight QoS Packet Scheduler
5. Click on Limit Reservable Bandwidth and check the enabled box
6. Then Change the Bandwidth limit % to 0 %

Once you have done this click apply and restart your PC. After rebooting you should see a noticeable improvement in your net speed.

Changing my IP using existing netgear DG834 x 3 modem


Changing IP is automatic when you switch providers. If you're question is actually changing internet connection using existing modem then it's a different story altogether.

First, using Tadaust as your internet requires a username and a password for a dial up connection and a DSL PPPoE connection. You need this information before you can try to connecto Tadaust.

I am not sure if you are trying to make a dial up connection or DSL connection but both can be done on XP by going to Start -> Network Connection -> Create a new connection and then follow the instructions. Almost the same procedure on Vista.

Here's a link to Tadaust support page which might be helpful to you -> http://www.tadaustconnect.org.au/support/

TCP/IP network transport not installed

Symptoms: After you run Microsoft Windows AntiSpyware (Beta) or other anti-virus/spyware/adware software, 1) you may receive one or more of the following interactive error messages:

Could not start the Windows Firewall/Internet Connection Sharing (ICS) service on Local Computer. Error 10047: An address incompatible with the requested protocol was used.

or

Windows Firewall settings cannot be displayed because the associated service is not running. Do you want to start the Windows Firewall/Internet Connection Sharing (ICS) service?

or

This application has failed to start because SPORDER.dll was not found.

2) Third-party networking products may not function correctly.

3) Computers may not be able to connect to the network because they cannot obtain an IP address.

4) You may receive the following error message when you are using Microsoft Internet Explorer:

Error 404: Page cannot be displayed.

Cause:

There are known spyware programs that install layered service providers (LSPs) on client computers to gather user data. When Windows AntiSpyware (Beta) removes spyware programs, it also removes the spyware-based LSPs. However, Windows AntiSpyware (Beta) does not restore any LSPs after it removes the spyware.

Trying to hook up lap top to wireless internet. Comcast tech says there is problem with IP# 169 which preceeds other numbers and needs to be removed for hookup. How can I accomplish this? Model #3150H


Usually you will have an IP address starting with 169 if the adapter cannot get an ip address from anywhere, it is an autmoatic IP address.

What operating system (Windows XP or 2000 or Vista) are you using?
