If you have dial-up, go to tools>internet options>click "always dial my default connection" or if you have broadband click on "Never dial a connection" These settings are found in Microsoft Internet Explorer 5 or higher.

Tengdayoan@yahoo.com What is the fast and efficient movie downloader


To download any files eg. Basically it will depend on your ISP lines whether it is cable or wireless connections. The speed and efficiency of any "Downloader software" depends directly on the bandwith of your ISP connections.

There are many formats how the files are downloaded from the web like torrents, http, FTP, etc....

A downloader is just a piece of software to assist you to simplified your downloads. You have not specified what type of download protocol you would like to use for downloading movies.

If the files are very big ie > 4.5GB, preferably the torrents is a good option. Any torrent clients like Bit-torrent, utorrent, etc..... are good choices.

Hope it helps.

6 Months with Embarq - No bandwidth at night


when u get dsl that means bandwidth is not guaranteed. 1.5Mbps is the maximum theoretical bandwidth. You can't expect more than that. DSL is a shared network. So if you want to get dedicated bandwidth you have to go to other technologies like leased lines :) . They can't do anything. MTS can never be achived in practice.

Hi there.
You need to reset the the wireless router and the modem, to do this just pull the power from the back of them for 2 minutes, don't power them off from the wall.
After the 2 minutes is up plug the power back in and wait for another 2 minutes for them go through the boot procedure. After that try to connect again.
If it still doesn't connect post back.

If Embarq cannot or willnot help you, drop them and get another service.
First connect your modem directly to the computer to isolate the problem. If it solves problem then difficulty is in the router. Then contact the router manufacturer.

If problem persists the Embarq should help you.

Outlook express - server pop needs to be changed. When I left embarq and went to Cablevision the server data did not change. E mail from computer generated from Outlook express does not generate.


You have to use your internet providers smpt-server.

This is something most internet providers forces us to do these days as a way to stop spam.

Either you contact your internet provider and ask for the correct smpt server, or you check their site. They usually have the right smpt server mentioned on their site.

Cheers

Can't browse web pages


Hi,

Its possible that some malware modified your Internet Properties.Open Control Panel -> Internet Options -> Select the TAB "Connections" -> click on Lan definitions and uncheck the checkbox referent to the use of a proxy. If its allready uncheked then there may be a problem in the DNS server. To correct this you must contact your ISP for the correct DNS IPs and put them in: Network Connections - > TCP/IP -> DNS

Cannot find server or DNS Error


Please try the following:

Click the Refresh button, or try again later.

If you typed the page address in the Address bar, make sure that it is spelled correctly.

To check your connection settings, click the Tools menu, and then click Internet Options. On the Connections tab, click Settings. The settings should match those provided by your local area network (LAN) administrator or Internet service provider (ISP).
If your Network Administrator has enabled it, Microsoft Windows can examine your network and automatically discover network connection settings.
If you would like Windows to try and discover them,
click Detect Network Settings
Some sites require 128-bit connection security. Click the Help menu and then click About Internet Explorer to determine what strength security you have installed.
If you are trying to reach a secure site, make sure your Security settings can support it. Click the Tools menu, and then click Internet Options. On the Advanced tab, scroll to the Security section and check settings for SSL 2.0, SSL 3.0, TLS 1.0, PCT 1.0.
Click the Back button to try another link.

Trying to launch internet explorer.it gives me error 680.


680 - There is no dial tone.

All versions of Windows are affected by this error.
No dial tone: There are many possible causes of a No Dial Tone Error.
First, try testing the modem's ability to detect dial tone and to dial by using HyperTerminal with the direct to COM port connect method - see Using HyperTerminal. If you give your modem an AT&FX1 command, and then a dial command, dial-tone detection will be disabled; if you still do not get dial tone, the modem may not be installed correctly (especially if it is a PCI or soft-modem); or the cable from the modem to the phone-line jack may be bad or installed in the wrong connector on the modem - try another line cord, and make sure you are plugged in to the LINE - not phone - jack on the modem. Plug a regular phone into the phone jack on the modem and make sure it has dial tone. The modem may also be defective. Many new modems come with an electronic circuit instead of the traditional electro-mechanical relay used to take the modem off-hook. Some of these designs are proving less reliable; often, they will be 'stuck' in the off-hook position, so unplugging, the plugging in the phone cord may give dial-tone. If this is the case, the modem needs repair or replacement.
If the modem will blind dial (x1), but not detect dial-tone otherwise, the problem is likely to be in the proper selection of the Country in Windows->ControlPanel->Telephony or in improper installation of the modem or lack of support for your country in the driver you are using. Check to see if there are updated drivers for your modem.
If the modem dials properly with detection (x3) in HyperTerminal, but does not detect dial tone when using DUNs, the problem may be DUNs (check for upgrade or re-install) or the proper setup and modem selection for the DUNs connectoid.
For Embarq telephone service customers, this error can indicate that you have a message waiting in your voicemail. Embarq changes the dial-tone sound to a "fast" busy signal when a new message is present in your voicemail box. This "fast" busy signal can confuse the modem into thinking there is no-dial tone present on the line.
