I agree with d_coueslant, as you are running vista you need a bucket load of ram,and as windows only see's around 3.5 gig, if your luck, (unless your running a 64 bit o/s )more ram may solve the problem,

you could try removing any programs that start at boot time to release some ram,
or increase your virtual memory if you have enough spare hard drive space.
if i can help any further please ask

good luck

I have one computer on the internet what do I do toset up a wireless router for second computer?


The wire that is connected to the first computer probably goes to your modem. Take the wire from the modem and put it into a wireless router that has wire output, put another wire from the modem back to your first computer. Then check the settings. You should then run the setup program for the new router so that you can set the wireless security and other settings.

On my window update i get error code 663


Click start control panel administrative tools computer management then select event viewer this may vary depending on what operating system you have

extend the events there you will see errors in red you will no what exactly what the error was and at what time it occured

or click start type in event viewer press ENTER

you might be able work your way through the problem

The 633 error is a connection problem that appears every time you try to use the modem on your computer.

It states "modem is already in use" and prevents you from accessing the Internet.


This problem mostly appears when a device with incompatible drivers has conflicts with the modem driver on your computer system.


The major software that causes this error is the Palm Pilot Software.

With some simple troubleshooting steps, resolve this modem communication error.


Shut down all currently running applications and restart your computer.

Press "F8" repeatedly before Windows begins to open the Windows Advanced Options Menu.


Scroll down and select "Safe Mode." Press "Enter" to log into Windows Safe Mode.

Safe Mode is used for troubleshooting and repairing system components.


Click the Windows "Start" button and select the "Control Panel."

Double-click "Add or Remove Programs" to open the programs window.


Click "Program and Features" (Windows Vista users) and select "Uninstall a Program" to open the programs window.


Click the incompatible software (e.g., Palm Desktop and Synchronization Software) and select "Change/Remove."


Click "Yes" to confirm and uninstall the program from your computer.


Restart your computer normally to complete the process.


Hope this helps

How can i use my 881 sierra wireless aircard to get online with my ps3


Download and install Sprint's SmartView. Select the download for your computer's operating system. Follow the installation wizard's prompts to properly install SmartView. The aircard should be connected to the computer during installation.

Restart the computer. Leave the aircard connected during the restart.

Double-click on the Sprint SmartView icon on the desktop.

Wait for the program to initialize and recognize the aircard, then click "Connect." Sprint SmartView should activate the aircard automatically.

Open a browser window to access the Internet.

I just bought a sierra wireless usb598 with telus and i want to make and receive phone calls. How do i that?


This is data modem that operates on the Sprint network. To make phone calls while it is connected you need additional software such as Skype or a VOIP solution such as MagicJack.

Tried to install Sprint wireless card on computer


Try restarting computer and as you see anything on the screen, start tapping F8 key. This will take you to Safe Mode and will not load many drivers including the Sprint card. I'd go to Control Panel >Programs/Features(or Add or Remove programs if you're running XP) and uninstall the Sprint app. Restart the computer and it should come up normally. Then call Sprint Tech Support for help.

Internet no longer working, but internal network is fine.


i agree with all the above.. it's definately clear as mud how the network is designed and or funtioning. The machines connected to the wireless d-link router.. are they via cat5 inthe wired ports or wireless ? is the server the machine thats connecting to the switch and wiress router and modem? i'd say reset all switches modems routers and machines.. shut them all down.. then fire the cable modem, then the wireless router then the desktop switch then the server, the workstations and the one lonely wireless.. run "ipconfig /all" on all machines and if they aren't all sharing common ips and access, provide the results here for further investigation.

Need to download a wireless adapter for my Gateway 830gm desktop


Are you sure there is no wireless device in the machine? Picking up a wireless connection in a desktop without a wireless device is a bit of an impossibility. Do you have a cellular device connected to the computer? Some of the cell wireless cards (Sprint for example) double as wireless cards for wifi hotspots. Many cell phones can be treated as wireless modems on your computer. Take another look and post back.

Sierra Wireless Compass 597


Usually when you have a network connection but cannot access the internet there is an IP issue. Here are some things to try:
  • If you haven't already done so, restart your computer
  • In Network connections - delete the Sprint connection under Dial Up Connections & restart pc
  • Right click on Local Area Connection and click properties - click TCP/IP and click properties - make sure Obtain an IP Address Automatically is selected
  • If your cable modem came with an installation CD - try reinstalling
Hopefully one of these will get you back on the Internet.
