How to get my computer to download files quicker


It depends on where the slow-down is occuring. 1) Use a wired connection instead of a wireless connection. 2) Try directly connecting your computer to your modem (cable or DSL) instead of sharing the network with other computers through a router if a wired network. 3) Upgrade to gigabit networking if you have 10/100 (chose one with support for large chunks of data).

Use a service that tests the download speed (www.dslreports.com/stest ) to find your connection bottleneck. If you have cable broadband, you may need to find a download time when other users aren't very active on your loop.

I hope this helps.

My daughter works at home as a Customer Service Rep. for Generation Networks (Ancestor.com). She has a terminal from work and it is configured for her to work from home. She has done that for over a year...


This is only a problem with the firmware of your modem/router that you need to update it, because a network device like a modem and router that is working fine for severla years and suddenly stop working you just need to update the firmware of it and it should be working fine again, to update the firmware of the modem/router just need to call the manufacturer for that....

Hope that helps.........

I CAN GET THE INTERNET EXPLORER TO WORK WITH MY MODEM.... SOMEHOW I THINK THE IP AND DNS ADDRESS IS WRONG... IT KEEP SAYING CHECK THE DOMAIN SERVER.... WHAT IS THE CORRECT IP AND DNS AND SUBMASK...


Hi, Go under network connection Right click on wireless Network connection or LAN connection (depens on what you're using to connect to the modem, a cable or through a wireless connection) and then properties. Scroll down until you see TCP/IP and double click on it. Make sure that it's set to obtain an address automatically and to obtain a DNS server address automatically. If you are using a router, do the same, but in this case you can set a static address. The subnet mask is 255.255.265.0 and the DNS address has usually the same address of your router.
Bye

Cant access internet (e-mails), possible dns error,and Domain Name Server may be down. Pinged remote host but no response


Sounds like either a cable has come unplugged/broken, the router/modem is on its way out, or your DNS cache needs to be cleared.
In this order:
Unplug the modem and/or router power cords. While unplugged, make sure the cat5 cables are connected securely(if using wired net).
Wait about 30 seconds to a minute, then plug the modem and/or router back in.

Test your internet connection.

If there still no connection to the internet, Click Ctar>Run, type in cmd, hit enter. This opens the command prompt.
On the black screen, type in ipconfig/flushdns
Close the command prompt, and re-test your internet connection.

If it still fails, verify with your ISP that your internet connection is active, and try a different router and/or modem.

I have netgear wpn824 wireless router and it works fine until I try to connect to my work server through their Sonicwall VPN. If I unplug the netgear and go straight into my computer through the DSL modem...


Two routers on two different sets of internal IP addresses will cause all kinds of conflicts. A VPN router is even worse. VPNs (virtual private networks) are designed to create encrypted tunnels between two computers. The computer its set to connect to must be authorized either as a user or a device with proper credentials. If your VPN authorizes devices based on MAC addresses, then unless your router's MAC address was previously authorized, youre not going to connect. Lets take the router out of the equation for a second. Do you have a working broadband connection from the sonicwall that the router can be plugged into? If you do, then you can treat this connection to your router like its a cable modem or DSL. If this connection has manual settings (such as IP address, default gateway, and primary and secondary DNS addresses) you will need these settings too. Post back and keep us updated...

Windows live sync will not connect


This is the last IP before it his the service provider. Basically your modem router IP will be the gateway.

I had a similar problem configuring an IP webcam. The camera had a built in router and was wireless. So the footage captured went through its own router, over wireless, into another router (the modem) and out over adsl. I had to put the modem/router IP into the dns box on the camera menu.

Hope this helps

I have a netgear wireless router which I need to configure. Part of the process requires me to connect the router to the modem. However the modem uses a USB connection. How do I connect it to the router?


I would check you have the right router, as DSL and cable use different types routers, if you are on a DSL connection my advice would be to return the router and purchase a modem/router and do away with your modem, if you are on cable modem, you have bought a DSL modem as they have no connection for a modem.

assuming you have a wireless router, make sure you have purchased the correct one, as cable and dsl routers are different, as cable modems need to be connected to the router via a cable and dsl normally have a modem that can't be connected to a router, and you will require a modem/router.

You can only share a wireless connection when the line comes directly to the router and not through a pc, as the pc with the connection will have to always be on.

Can get to the 192.168.0.1 page but can not connect to the internet, i keep getting either low conectivity. or cabel in plugged. i have the di-524 ops is xp


Sounds like your DSL/Cable modem is not talking properly to your new wireless router. Depending on your modem, my first guess and thing to check is that your DSL/Cable modem is in bridge mode to connect to your new wireless router.

I'm having trouble hooking up my zonet wireless router. I put the cd in and did everything but it still wont work.


Are you running a DSL connection, or is it cable? If you have a DSL connection, the router IP and the DSL modem will conflict with each other trying to establish connection. This may be something to call zonenet customer support on to find out if it is possible to change the router IP address so they don't conflict. If you want to basically "PLUG and PLAY" return the zonenet router and get a D-Link wireless router. They are most compatable with DSL connections.
