Question about Acer Aspire One PC Notebook

Network hotspots I recently purchased a Gateway-T2330 Laptop-MT6728 and I am experiencing trouble gaining internet access at public hotspots. For example, at my school, which has campus-wide wireless internet, I connect to the internet, but my browsers will not connect and display access to the internet.

Im using a 2Wire Gateway DSL connected via ethernet to a Mac G4, I also have a laptop running windows vista and it has strong wi-fi connection, sending packets at optimal levels and speed. BUT Problem


Vista has a well known flaw of not allowing you to easily change access rights after selecting "public network" in the initial network connection screens. The easiest fix is to change the name of your wifi access point, reconnect, and be absolutely certain to select "home network" when the prompt comes up.

The best solution however is to ditch that crummy excuse for an operating system and upgrade to Windows 7 or 8.

Tips to help you work more securely from Wi-Fi hotspots in public


7 tips for working securely from wireless hotspotsWireless hotspots are changing the way people work. These wireless local area networks (LANs) provide high speed Internet connection in public locations—as well as at home—and need nothing more than a mobile PC such as a laptop or notebook computer equipped with a wireless card.
In fact, hotspots are an everyday connection method for travelers and remote workers to browse the Internet, check their e-mail, and even work on their corporate networks while away from the office.
Hotspots range from paid services, such as T-Mobile or Verizon Wireless, to public, free connections. Hot spots are everywhere, including:
  • Coffee shops
  • Restaurants
  • Libraries
  • Bookstores
  • Airports
  • Hotel lobbies
But they all have one thing in common—they are all open networks that are vulnerable to security breaches. And that means it's up to you to protect the data on your PC. In this article, we cover a few tips to make working in public locations more secure.
Try to choose more secure connectionsIt's not always possible to choose your connection type—but when you can, opt for wireless networks that require a network security key or have some other form of security, such as a certificate. The information sent over these networks is encrypted, which can help protect your computer from unauthorized access. The security features of different networks appear along with the network name as your PC discovers them.
Make sure your firewall is activatedA firewall helps protect your mobile PC by preventing unauthorized users from gaining access to your computer through the Internet or a network. It acts as a barrier that checks all incoming information, and then either blocks the information or allows it to come through. All Microsoft Windows operating systems come with a firewall, and you can make sure it's turned on.
To activate the Windows Vista Firewall
  1. Click Start and then click Control Panel.
  2. In Control Panel, click Network and Internet.
  3. Under Windows Firewall, click Turn Windows Firewall on or off.
  4. Ensure that On is selected.
To activate the Windows XP Firewall
  1. Click Start, and then click Control Panel.
  2. In Control Panel, click Network Connections.
  3. In the Network Connections window, under Network Tasks, click Change Windows Firewall Settings.
  4. In the Windows Firewall dialog box, on the General tab, ensure that On is selected.
Monitor your access pointsChances are that there are multiple wireless networks anywhere you're trying to connect. These connections are all access points, because they link into the wired system that gives you Internet access. So how do you make sure you're connecting to the right one? Simple—by configuring your PC to let you approve access points before you connect.
Configure Windows Vista Access Points Windows Vista takes the guesswork out of connecting to hotspots because you are automatically prompted to approve new connections. In addition, after you approve a connection, you assign it a profile for future use.
Configure Windows XP Access Points
  1. Click Start, click Control Panel, and then click Network Connections.
  2. Right-click Wireless Network Connection, and then click Properties.
  3. On the Wireless Networks tab, make sure that the Use Windows to configure my wireless network settings check box is selected.
  4. Under Preferred networks, make sure that the name of the network that you want to connect to is highlighted, and then click Advanced.
  5. Click Access point (infrastructure) network only, and then click Close.
Disable file and printer sharingFile and printer sharing is a feature that enables other computers on a network to access resources on your computer. When you are using your mobile PC in a hotspot, it's best to disable file and printer sharing—when it's enabled, it leaves your computer vulnerable to hackers. Remember, though, to turn this feature back on when you return to the office.
Disable file and printer sharing in Windows Vista
  1. Click Start, and then click Control Panel.
  2. Click Network and Internet, and then click Network and Sharing Center.
  3. Under Sharing and Discovery, click the arrow next to File sharing, click Turn off file sharing, and then click Apply.
  4. Click the arrow next to Printer sharing, click Turn off printer sharing, and then click Apply.
Disable file and printer sharing in Windows XP
  1. Click Start, and then click Control Panel.
  2. Click Security Center, and then click Windows Firewall.
  3. Click the Exceptions tab, and then under Programs and Services, clear the File and Printer Sharing check box.
Make your folders privateWhen the folders on your mobile PC are private, it's more difficult for hackers to access your files.
To make a folder private in Windows Vista Windows Vista not only makes folders private by default, but it also requires passwords for shared folders. As a result, you're already covered! But if you want to double-check, simply right-click on the folder in question, and select Properties. On the Security tab, you can review the set permissions.
To make a folder private in Windows XP
  1. Click Start, and then click My Computer.
  2. Click the drive where Windows is installed, and then click Documents and Settings.
  3. Open your user folder, right-click the folder that you want to make private, and then click Properties.
  4. On the Sharing tab, click Do no share this folder, and then click OK.
Repeat the steps above for each folder that you want to make private.
Encrypt your filesYou can protect your files further by encrypting them, which requires a password to open or modify them. Because you must perform this procedure on one file at a time, consider password-protecting only the files that you plan to use while working in a public place.
Consider completely removing sensitive data from your notebook PCIf you're working with extremely sensitive data, it might be worth taking it off your notebook PC altogether. Instead, save it on a corporate network share and access it only when necessary. This way, you have multiple safeguards in place.
A few simple precautions can help make working in public places more secure. And by selecting the best connections and adjusting settings, you can enjoy productive and safe work sessions no matter where you are.

Connecting wireless cam with different ip address


An IP camera is a video camera that can be viewed over a Local Area Network or the Internet. The camera typically is monitored locally from a computer via the network to which the camera is attached. With just a few additional configurations of your network, you can access the IP Network Camera so that it can be monitored remotely using the Internet. This is the benefit of a network camera, as it can reside on an IP network and the video stream can be accessed or saved remotely.

Get the Default Gateway of your IP. Do this by entering "ipconfig/all" in your Command Prompt and hitting "Enter" on your keyboard. Your IP information will be brought up, and number you are looking for is the Default Gateway. This is underneath the IP address. Identify this number by its number pattern, which will look like the following: 111.222.3.4. Access your router. This is done by simply typing the default gateway from Step 1 above into the address bar of your Internet browser, and pressing "Enter." Forward your port by configuring your camera. Open the configuration section on the router web page where port forwarding is located by clicking on the "Applications & Gaming" link along the top of the page. In this menu, click on "Port Range Forwarding." Configuration sections can be located differently with each kind of router. Find this information by referring to the documentation that came with your router when you purchased it. Access your camera over the Internet. To do this, type your public IP address into the address bar of the web browser and press "Enter" in the same way as described in Step 2 when entering your default gateway. Note: The public IP address is different from your regular IP address. The regular IP address identifies computers and other devices on your network, whereas your public IP address is what is used to make yourself known to others on the Internet. Your Internet service provider can supply you with your public IP address if you call them and ask for it.

The problem is I do not know about using wifi.I mean whats the use of a laptop if you can't transport it


You can transport a laptop and use it anywhere you want, but for reliable internet access when away from home then you will need to find public wifi. This comes in the form of either free public hotspots, such as at McDonalds and Starbucks, or secured wifi which is provided along with another service, such as at a hotel. In order to use any of these services, you need to have a wifi enabled laptop and the correct credentials to connect to the network. For free hotspots such as McDonalds, you don't need any other details other than to select the correct network from the list of available networks and connect. For hotel wifi and the like, you will most likely need a password or key to access the wifi, which is usually provided to you upon request.

Don't forget that laptops existed long before wifi, and that browsing the internet and reading emails isn't the only thing computers were built for!

What is wifi


Hi,
Wireless local area network is a local area network that uses high frequency radio signals to transmit and receive data over distances of a few hundred feet, uses ethernet protocol.

In simple word allow you to surf internet without any internet cable connection, Wi-Fi enabled device such as a personal computer, video game console, smartphone or digital audio player can connect to the Internet when within range of a wireless network connected to the Internet. The coverage of one or more (interconnected) access points called hotspots, can comprise an area as small as a few rooms or as large as many square miles. Coverage in the larger area may depend on a group of access points with overlapping coverage.

In addition to private use in homes and offices, Wi-Fi can provide public access at Wi-Fi hotspots provided either free-of-charge or to subscribers to various commercial services. Organizations and businesses - such as those running airports, hotels and restaurants - often provide free-use hotspots to attract or assist clients. Enthusiasts or authorities who wish to provide services or even to promote business in selected areas sometimes provide free Wi-Fi access.


Thanks....!!!

Unable to connect to internet when setting up new laptop


Hi...yes, he will need an ISP if he wants to access the internet from home. But he could also use a public wireless hotspot, or borrow your connection (if you're willing to let him!) - at least until he has set up his own. Mobile broadband is also an option.
Hope this helps
