Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

I just bought a new laptop with Windows 7. I am not able to get my wireless to talk to my router. Nor am I able to retreive email. Charter.net says they can't help and Best Buys doesn't know sh.. from shinola. Does anyone out there understand computers enough to point me in the right direction. I tried control panel/network and internet/internet options???? also tried the setup wizard. Obviously, to much for me to figure out. What happen to MS and user friendly -- Bill Gates????

Did you run the router software on your new computer? Is your router Windows 7 compatable? Did you check the MS Hardware compatability list to see if 7 can work with it?

Windows XP, Vista and 7 has about put me out of business. Next edition, a blind dog with a note in its mouth will be able to configure a connection and run a computer.

You don't mention the make or the laptop nor the make of the router making it difficult to give more specifics.

Of course you cannot get mail if you cannot get a connection.

I recomment Network Magic as a network management tool ... read the deal when you get there ... free for a week, then pay OR continue to use with some features disabled.

Quit picking on Mr. Gates ... he doesn't even work there any more.

Can't set up my email on Micro Soft Outlook 2007 for Windows7. no income or out going email. please help with the correct settings and set up


if you are trying to set up a pop3 account, go to "tools", "options" "email setup" you need to know your sign in name (e.g. your email address), if you use Charter Mail, you pop3 would read pop.charter.net,, and the SMTP would read smtp.charter.net If you don't use charter just substitute your email provider where I have typed "charter". You cannot use "hotmail" for outlook anymore so don't bother trying.

New router no download speed


I would recommend trying to shut down the nortons or any other firewalls and trying a speedtest,maybe at speedtest.net, then put the firewalls back up one at a time and see if one of them is slowing you down. this is usually the case

These are some reasons why your new Hp laptop can't connect through your Netgear Router is because your Router has a security that used a password to connect to your router or the ip address of your desktop and Dell laptop is already setup to the router to work with internet.

You can learn how to setup your router easily.

I have a wrt54g linksys wireless router that im trying to link up with my new laptop that is running windows 7. My start up disc that came with the router isnt formatted for my computer. what can i do?


You do not need a start up disk to make Windows 7 talk to this router. Just add a wireless network, and if you are broadcasting the SSID and remember your passphrase you are done.
Windows knows how to talk TCP/IP and Wi-fi without any disks - as long as it can support your ethernet or wi-fi adapter you are OK.
The start up disk for that router had documentation on it and some silly stuff, I've never bothered with it.

Belkin Wireless Modem Router, model F5D7634-4.


If the reset did not help ,i would suggest you talk to the Belkin Support team and get a replacement. Since its a new router, I assume it has an up to date firmware .

No outgoing email


Bob

It appears that you are accessing your charter account thru a different Internet Service Provider. Generally, most ISPs will allow downloads of email from 3rd party ISPs but will not permit uploads (sending email) as this is how many spammers origially sent emails without being traced and would overload email servers.

You best option is to send you email from florida using the charter webmail application at www.charter.net (Click the Email button and sing in to your account) From webmail (Which accesses Charter's Email server) you can send and receive from anywhere.

Need a wireless router for my talk talk broadband


You could use any brand wireless router with your broadband service for a wifi signal for your laptop or any wireless internet to any device that is compatible for it. You first need to make sure your laptop has built in wireless or if it needs an adapter(ex. Wireless notebook adapter, USB Adapter). and if its built in then all you would need to buy is a wireless router(Linksys has a really nice and user friendly setup. Model:WRT54G).
