1 Answer

Connectivity Hi, I'm having problems connecting to certain web pages, for instance, goole earth, the program initializes and the says trouble connecting to server, also I downloaded a program about builbing regs, when I try to register I get the same message ie; trouble connecting to server. When asked if I want to run a diagnostic test I am informed that it might be firewall or proxy. That is about tha same as asking me to order a chinise in swaheli. How do I see what my settings are and secondly how do I adjust them?? please help I'm so confused. I click on help and it just assumes I'm an expert.

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.

To connect your computer to the Linksys wireless router using the LAN card in your computer you need to install the LAN card driver. If you want to use a wireless connection with your Dell desktop, you will need to install a wireless card on your Dell plus the wireless card driver.
For the LAN card driver, download the driver from the Dell WEB site.

You can download the device drivers from Dell WEB site,the support download page. Make sure you select your model desktop or laptop,better still, type in the Service Tag number, it is printed on the label on thebottom of the laptop and on the back or sides of a desktop. (If the Service Taglabel is missing then go into the BIOS setting and on one of the BIOS pages,the Service Tag number will be displayed). This will open the page where thespecific drivers for your model computer are located. Also make sure you selectthe Windows of the drivers for your Windows operating system. Click on thislink to download the drivers: - http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/index.aspx?c=us&l=en&s=gen

Hi.i'm having trouble connecting my dlink router to my internet.i ran the dlink software & the repair connection with no results.if i unhook the router i can connect to my isp.help


Can you get into the routers web page (typically 192.168.1.1)?
Did you try resetting it to the factory defaults? Go over the instructions, reset to factory defaults, and try setting it up manually without the disk. If you don't know how, ask someone to set it up for you.

It's also possible the router is bad. I had another router brand that was acting crazy. Turned out it was defective. I replaced it and since have had no problems.

Email links not connecting


Are you sure you cleared the virus? My father had that one, and it blocks access to some web sites (Symantec, for example) until it's completely cleared. It also messes with the system clock, which makes some web sites refuse connection.

When you click on a link does Internet Explorer open and not find the page, or does it just do nothing, or bring up an error?
