One is that my desktop computer keeps saying that 'internet can not connect to google.


Are you able to surf the internet with Internet Explorer in normal ways?

If the answer is no, get any latest version of new browser (chrome, firefox, etc) and make it as your default browser and see if the problem persists or not.

And if the answer is yes, the problem may be lying into IE itself. Now, again, use any other updated browser and make it default and see what happens.

Hope this helps, Mrityunjay.

Hey

I need to know a few things about the network.

So you have a motorola modem, could you look at its bottom label and tell me its brand and model.

So that modem is connected to the internet, and a cable from this modem goes to a router yes? no? And is it connected on the DSL, or INTERNET port on the router? most likely separate from other ports and may have different coloring.

And then from there, are you connecting wirelessly to the router or with wires?

Can not find server everytime i try to connect to the internet


Sometimes this is not your fault or problem (other than it happens to you) contact you ISP (internet SERVICE provider) Like Verizon, Comcast...whom ever, let the do a line test and tell them to check the settings on your computer. They can take over your computer and if there is an errant setting they will find it in just a few seconds. Hey you are paying for their service and they are usually happy to provide it to you. Good luck my friend...

To my knowledge of understanding is as if the WIFI is weak and cannot get connected to any network around anymore so if you wish to have a wirelless connection you can still make use of a USB doggle and the network operator or manufacturer will give you the access and you browse anywhere you go with your system and the USB will be connected to your system ok

Internet connection


Hey dadof9,

Depending on how you normally connect to the internet, the cause of this problem may vary.

If you have high-speed internet service through a company like Time Warner or Comcast and have a physical wire running from your computer to the router, you may want to make sure that your internet connection is set to use a local area network connection. In Windows XP this can generally be done by clicking on the "Tools" link at the top of any Internet Explorer page, selecting "Internet Options" from the drop-down menu, then clicking on the "Connections" tab in the window that opens. You'll want to make sure that your connection type is set to "Never dial a connection," or your computer will continue to look for the internet using a dial-up modem.

Should your home use a wireless network instead, your computer may not be able to access the internet if the network is WEP or WPA/WPA2-encrypted, your computer has not been added to the router's MAC filters yet, your computer has the incorrect DNS settings, or if the computer isn't able to pick up the wireless router's signal.

Addressing problems with WEP or WPA encryption, MAC filters and DNS settings generally does require some home networking knowledge, so if you're not quite sure how to adjust these you may want to speak with your internet service provider (ISP) for more information. Many ISP's are able to provide step-by-step, over the phone support and troubleshooting for networking issues, and may even be able to send a technician to your home to help you get things up and running again.

Signal problems however, can prove to be a little more difficult to remedy. If you live in an area with a high concentration of wireless network devices (or own several others yourself), you may be receiving interference from the other wireless devices in your neighborhood. Typically, changing the channel on which a wireless device broadcasts will improve this type of situation, but there are no guarantees that your neighbors aren't thinking the same thing. Additionally, how homes are constructed may interfere with a wireless connection. While surfaces such as wood and plaster do not cause much interference, any metallic, brick or stone surface may cause a significant loss in signal strength.

Please keep in mind that these are by no means the only reasons why you would not be able to establish an internet connection, and that your best bet is to generally contact your ISP if you have any doubts. Third party technicians (such as Geek Squad® agents) may charge you for any services rendered, though many ISP’s will provide networking services for their subscribers free of charge.

Hope this helps you out.

Sincerely,
Aaron
Go Ahead. Use Us.

Computer cannot access the internet


Try to disable wireless card on your desktop. With both the wireless and cat-5 socket enabled, "WITHOUT" the proper bridge settings, they will conflict and not be able to read.
