Computer won't recognize driver


Turn the modem off. Disconnect the electrical power.
Reconnect the electrical power. Turn the modem on.
This "resets" the modem, and you should be good-to-go.

Or, telephone your Internet Service Provider's "Help Desk", and get them to trouble-shoot.

Did you try updating your phone to local cell phone towers?
Here's a quote from ehow.com: "While some areas receive better signals than others, it is possible to reprogram one's cell phone so that it more efficiently utilizes the cell towers in the area. The process is slightly different for each service provider."

What does "check OP" mean


This means that the weather radio has not received the weekly test signals for over a week. Turn the radio off and then back on. Next set the radio to announce the current weather (on my unit the button is marked Weather) and listen to the broadcast. If you do not hear the broadcast, move the radio until you do.

If you can't get a good signal, check the NOAA site for your coverage area to see if the local emergency alert broadcast towers are under repair. If needed try one of the other towers that cover your county. Sometimes you may get one location better than the others if you are near the edge of the county or are surrounded by hills. http://www.weather.gov/nwr/Maps/ has the maps by state and those link to the frequency of each tower that can be heard in a given county.

If the radio still fails to hear the test alerts, you may need an external antenna or a new radio. (Caution: the external antenna may hear a more distant tower and not give your local alert. We got the wrong state on one radio.)

(who has one weather radio on each side of the house set to two different towers. I live 2 miles from the state line. We had severe weather a few days ago and only the in-state tower broadcast the severe weather watch. The local television stations displayed different watches and warnings depending on which NOAA coverage area they checked.)

Different phone companies use different towers, you may be standing right beside a tower, but that doesn't mean its the one your cell provider uses. It sounds like you just don't get service coverage in that area, which will make phone calls go straight to voicemail and not show you that they called.

Lg chocolate Phone on extended network


You cannot force your phone to work on extended network when it's in range of your home networks tower... but you can set it to ignore extended networking. when in the main menu (vx8500) hit 0 and type in all 000000's into the password that comes up. I haven't had this specific phone in my hands for a while, so I can't remember the exact menu, but it's in there under something similar to "Network"> "roam">"home only".

In the vx8550 you actually dial ##program(7764726)8550 to get into the same menu.

P168 trouble!!


Did it work before?
Did anything change?

Have you tried powering it off and back on? I know this is needed sometimes to reconnect to the local towers.

Are you in an area known to have AT&T coverage?
