Hi,

if you are behind a firewall, open the settings and reduce to medium-high, these programs may need to access your computer to establish your i.p address or similar.

    Hi,



    Unfortunately you won,t get much help from anyone by rating their solution as inapropriate.

    By doing this you are demoralising an experts status.

    If you are not computer literate, i,d suggest typing in your problem on the internet, and reading other peoples posts.



    I personally don,t see that this was inappropriate, as it was specifically aimed at your problem, and offered a possible solution.



    Many thanks for your un-necessary rating.



    Mike @ compurepair.

Can not open racingandsports page


When browsing the web, there are some instances where you encounter pages that cannot be loaded. There are several reasons why, ranging from an error on the website itself to the settings on your own computer.

Page Cannot be Found
A "Page cannot be found error" may occur when certain Web pages are no longer online. This can be due to the deletion of the page, or if the page was relocated to a different section without having its links updated. b> Firewall Issues b> There are some pages that cannot be displayed on your computer simply because they are being blocked by the firewall software installed on your computer. To remedy the issue, change your firewall settings to allow access to these pages. Virus or Malware b> If you have an anti-virus installed, this will prevent you from accessing pages that may contain possible threats to your computer. Websites that contain viruses or malware, or so-called "Attack sites" will be blocked from being loaded on your computer. b> Connection Timed Out b> When you get this error message, it means your internet connection has timed out, which will cause your page not to load. You can contact your internet service provider to resolve this issue. Hope this helps.

Thank you for using FixYa

This error occurs often when the Internet is having traffic issues. I assume you are able to go directly to another website and display a page, and that this is not every web page is down. It is probably an internet problem and not your equipment. Try going into a different web page directly from browser search box. You could clear your cookies and cache and try again to see if that makes any difference. Otherwise you will have to contact your ISP and see if they are having problems. If it is only certain web pages then it is not your ISPs problem.


I hope this was useful and please comment if this was helpful to you.

My 2wire modem is working for the desk top after i did a reset but the wireless light is still not lit up and my laptop can;t connect


get into the web page of the device with your browser and the device's IP address.
The device's IP address can be found in its manual, or by searching the model by goole.
The username and password of the web page is usually admin/admin or admin/password.
Browse around to enable the wireless signal.

good luck!

it is almost certainly your firewall or other security software blocking the connection Make sure that your firewall program is configured to allow internet access.Besides personal firewalls, other security programs, including Norton or Symantec Antivirus, can block internet access or cause other connection issues, especially after the browser is updated.

NETGEAR WGT624 Router Troubleshooting


Hello!

Inability to access certain websites is due to three main factors.
  1. Security on the web browser is set too high
  2. MTU not set on the router properly
  3. Secured websites
Lowering Down the Security Settings on Internet Explorer

Step 1: Double-click Internet Explorer and click Tools.
Step 2: Select Internet Options, click Security then Custom Level. A window similar to Step 3 will appear.
Step 3: Select Medium-low under the Reset to drop-down menu.

If this did not work, you may try to:

-- enable the MTU on the router.
-- forward port 443 on the router
