Hi

Enabling TCP/IP ports needs to be done from your firewall. Often (these days) two firewalls are in place. One on the internet router/modem and another on your PC. Example McAfee, Norton, ZoneAlarm, etc. Windows XP and Vista also have built-in firewalls (port blockers). If ports are required to be opened, you need to configure it on your internet router/modem and also on your software firewall (as the case might be).
Each internet router/modem and software firewall have specific ways to configure ports so you have to look up the vendors steps or reply with more info and will respond at best effort.

I don't know how enable infrared port in my pc - ibm thinkpad x 41


By default, currently available ThinkPads come with the external serial port disabled and Infrared enabled on COM1. To use the serial port on COM1 you must either disable infrared or change infrared so that it uses alternate resources. If you are not using infrared for printing or file sharing it is recommended that it be disabled. Here are the steps to follow to enable infrared :

1. Double-click your ThinkPad Features or ThinkPad Configuration icon located in the ThinkPad folder on your desktop.

2. Locate the Infrared button located on the left-hand side of this configuration screen and click it once. (Note: If you hold your mouse pointer over any of the icons in this configuration screen the button will be identified at the bottom in the status window.)

3. Change Infrared from "Disable" to "Enable" and click "OK".
4. Locate the serial port icon and click it once.
5. Select serial port "enable" and insure that the COM PORT setting is "COM 1" and click "OK".
6. Shut down and restart the computer.

Usb port refuses to recognize plug in hardwares,


You can check from the Device Manager and see if you can enable it from there. Right click on your My Computer and choose Manage. On the left panel click on Device Manager. From your right, expand the Universal Serial Bus controllers. Right click on each on the list and choose Enable.

Also so you can go and check on your BIOS settings and see if the USB port is enabled.

Goodluck and hope this helps.

USB ports do not work


1.) Check your CMOS/Bios settings to see if any USB ports are disabled.

2.) If not, check to see that USB ports show in your operating system's device manager or settings. Enable them if they are disabled. Otherwise, you may need to reinstall the drivers that came with your model of notebook computer.

If using Windows XP, for example, go to Control Panel, System, Hardware, Device Manager, Universal Serial Bus Controllers. If the latter is not present and you have USB enabled in CMOS/Bios, you will need to install the drivers. If "Universal Serial Bus Controllers" is present, look within to see if they are all enabled and working properly.
If not, re-install the drivers.

3.) If the above does not work, you may have bad USB ports that will require service by an authorized repair service for your notebook computer.

Not able to connect to BT Homehub wireless Toshiba Satellite Pro


  1. Click the Start button getcontent.aspx?assetid=4f6cbd09-148c-4dd8-b1f2-48f232a2fd33&documentset=en-us&renderkey=signed1, click Control Panel, and then double-click Bluetooth Devices.
  2. Click the device that you want to change, and then click Properties.
  3. Do any of the following:
    • To change the name of the device, click the General tab, type a new name, and then click OK.
    • To enable a service, click the Services tab, select the check box next to the service, and then click OK.
    • To disable a service, click the Services tab, clear the check box next to the service, and then click OK.
    • To make your computer discoverable to Bluetooth enabled devices, in the Bluetooth Devices dialog box, click the Options tab, and then select the Allow Bluetooth devices to find this computer check box.
    • To make Bluetooth enabled devices discoverable to your computer, in the Bluetooth Devices dialog box, click the Options tab, and then select the Allow Bluetooth devices to connect to this computer check box.
    • To be notified when a Bluetooth enabled device wants to connect to your computer, in the Bluetooth Devices dialog box, click the Options tab, and then select the Alert me when a new Bluetooth device wants to connect check box.
    Warning
    • To help protect your computer, only make your computer discoverable when you want a Bluetooth enabled device to find your computer.

Some computer programs require a COM port (also called a serial port) to communicate with a Bluetooth enabled device. For example:
  • A program that synchronizes contacts with a mobile phone
  • A program that extracts Global Positioning System (GPS) coordinates from a GPS receiver
When you use the Add Bluetooth Device Wizard to add a Bluetooth enabled device to your computer, you create an incoming COM port, which permits your device to connect to a program on your computer, and an outgoing COM port, which permits a program on your computer to connect to your device. Usually, you only need to use one of these COM ports.
To decide which COM port to use, you can check the information that came with the program or your Bluetooth enabled device, or go to the manufacturer’s website.
If you're still not sure which COM port to use, try each COM port, one at a time, and use the one that successfully allows the program and your device to communicate.

Hi
In your device list, don't you see USB ports isntalled?
If not, you need to install them first.
And if you can't have them installed or recognized by windows, you should enable them from your BIOS setup.
In your Bios Setup, search for "On Board Devices" and go to "On Board USB" then change it to Enable if it's Disable.
Save changes, restart you computer, then wait for windows to log on and wait for the USB ports to be recognized by Windows. Finally try the Printer.
If the problem presets, you may need to buy a USB Card which is not expensive.

I would be more happy to help if any drivers needed.
