You can also try to reinstall the Network adapter

Click Start -> Right click on My computer -> Properties -> hardware -> device manager -> Network adapters

Right click and uninstall provided you have the driver disk from the manufacturer. After you uninstalled click Action on the device manager and click scan for hardware changes. This should automatically install the driver for the network adapter. Otherwise install the driver from the manufacturer disk

Good luck

Hello,my name Tairi Charlie Im having problem opening my email" -- because I forgot my identity answere


If you haven't logged into your Hotmail in some time and suspect you might be using the wrong password, click the "Forgot Your Password?" link on the Hotmail log-in page. On the next screen, follow the prompts to enter your email address and the given security verification code. Click "continue" and on the next screen, select the option that allows you to answer your pre-set security question. This is a question you supplied when you set up your Hotmail account. After correctly answering the question, you will be prompted to reset your password. Clear your browser history and temporary Internet folders if you are continually getting a "Page Cannot Be Displayed" message when you log in. The exact procedure for doing this depends on your operating system and browser. If you continue to get see this message, it could indicate a problem with the Hotmail server. Check the status of the network on a site like Down Right Now that reports server problems on popular sites. Submit a support request on the Windows Live page. On the Windows Live site, select "Hotmail" under "Standard Services." A search screen will open that will allow you to check out a variety of Hotmail related support topics. At the bottom of that screen, choose "get more help" and then "support." A support form will open for you to complete and submit to the Hotmail team. You will receive an answer within 24 hours.

Cannot send or receive hotmail


Check you username and password. Hotmail passwords are case sensitive, so something as simple as having your caps lock on can keep you from accessing your account. Double check to be sure you are typing both your username and password exactly how you created them. Reset your password. If you haven't logged into your Hotmail in some time and suspect you might be using the wrong password, click the "Forgot Your Password?" link on the Hotmail log-in page.

Eror 105 wifi


Error 105 is one of the most commonly faced errors by a lot of users everyday who are using Google chrome
Error 105 is a DNS resolution error. - Which means when you enter the URL of the website and hit enter in Google chrome, it tries to resolve the IP address of the website using a protocol called DNS (Domain Name System). If chrome is unable to reach the DNS server, the name resolution fails and you get the error 105.
Solution:
Once you have verified from your internet service provider that there is no problem on their end, follow the step by step instructions below.
We are simply going to add a manual DNS address in Windows so that chrome is able to resolve DNS queries.
1) Press [Windows Key + R] to open the "RUN Dialog"
Alternatively, you can also click on the start menu, type run in the search bar, and you will have the RUN Program.
Once you have the RUN box, type in ncpa.cpl and click OK - This would work for all Windows operating systems including Windows Xp, Vista and 7.
2) Next, Choose the correct network adapter (from the icons)
If you are connecting to the internet using an Ethernet cable, then most likely you are using a desktop computer. Right-Click "Local Area Connection" and click "Properties"
If you are connecting to the internet using a Wi-Fi Connection, then Right-Click on "Wireless Network Connection" and click properties
3) After you open the properties window, select "Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IPv4)" and click "Properties"
4) Usually you would be having both the options set to "Automatic"
In the section below, select the "Use the following DNS Server Addresses" and enter the following values Preferred DNS Server - 8.8.4.4
Alternate DNS Server - 8.8.8.8
and click "OK", then click "CLOSE"
You must now test your new configuration by browsing a website - you can also try and browse the website you were trying to get to when you got the error 105.
