    thanks for replying,

    i use a router to connect to the internet, a modem with integrated a network rj45 switch and a wireles acces point.

    this device ofcurse provide nat and firewall function. so i'm not able to connect directly to internet, but if you mean that neither the pc connected directly to the router can access ftp.

    i tried configuring the firewall of the router, a function called virtual server, but it ask the ip of the client and the door to open. i tried to open port 21 on for ex. but that client was still not able to acces ftp.

    moreover i cannot do like that since the router support max 20 entries for virtual server and i canno use them all for opening ftp.

    then i tried disabling firewall function (very baaaaaad) but stil no way.

    i'll call isp, thats the only one i didn't think about, i heared of isp blocking torrent or p2p, but never ftp...

    gonna let you know!

Have you tried connecting one of your computers directly to the modem or the internet connection alone, is that machine able to access a ftp server? If it is, then there is a firewall or something else blocking it along the path in your network.

If the computer is unable to connect to a FTP server, the issue is either in the modem, possibly it has a ftp filtering feature / firewall.

Or then your internet service provider may be blocking the port. Give them a call.

    im behind a nat / firewall, and ftp works, i did not forward any ftp ports, it simply works, see if there are some filtering options that might filter / block ftp traffic. Local university network blocks ftp and smtp, so sending email from their network or opening a ftp doesn't work.

    most likely your nat router is blocking the ftp or then your isp is blocking it.

Where can i get drivers for my Compaq Presario CQ50? I downgrade it from Windows Vista to Windows XP Home Edition. Thank you so much for your help.

Downgrading from Vista to XP is not a good choice. Specially HP Notebooks are not comaptible with retail version operating systems and its difficult to find the drivers and get it work.

I found a few. Please install in the same sequence and check. A restart is must after each driver installation.

1. Here is the link to download Intel Chipset Installation Utility for ICH9:

2. Here is the link to download Mobile Intel 4 Series Express Chipset Family Graphics Driver:
It's always recommended to install UAA drievr, before installing Audio driver.

3. Here is the link to download Universal Audio Architecture (UAA):

5. Here is the link to download HP Quick Launch Buttons:

My Hp pavilion tx2000 cant play audio files,cant connect to net

Hi James

First, Sound drivers:
HP Pavilion tx2000 CTO Notebook Realtek High-Definition Audio Driver A from HP notebook

and video drivers..
HP Pavilion tx2000z CTO Notebook NVIDIA GeForce Go 6150 Video Driver A

Now network:
HP Pavilion tx2000 CTO Notebook NVIDIA nForce Chipset/Network Driver 5.53 A

and wireless!
This is an older WIFI driver that only works in XP, and in certain HP Pavilions, but try it.

and this is the Vista one that is correct for your laptop, it probably doesn't work in XP but if all else fails, you could try it. (You should really run Vista on it, I reckon)-----------------
HP Pavilion tx2000 CTO Notebook Broadcom Wireless LAN Driver 7.0 Windows Vista

All support you need is here at HP Tech Support:

Good Luck

Merry Christmas
