No you don't need to delete the dailup connection. What you need to do is open the internet explorer and go to the menu bar and select "Tools" go to internet options which will open a new window, now go to the connections tab. what you need to do now is make sure that "never dail a connection" is selected. this will sort out your problem. let me know how you get on.

Alcatel one touch pop icon. My wifi works fine,but when I turn off the wifi and turn on the data connection my phone says no internet connection, and yes I do have data. Help Please.


Sounds like maybe your data needs to be rebooted. On your phone turn off the WiFi and data, then turn your phone off for 30 seconds. When you turn your phone back on wait an additional 30 seconds before you turn data back on. After the 30 seconds test your data and see if it's working. If still not working you could have an app or something causing your phones rams to be high. And even then just reboot your phone and it should work.
Hope this is helpful

My laptop is HP. With windows 8 I need to turn off broadband ?? To connect WiFi lan setting only..No dial up


If your HP has a Wireless adapter - should have - you should connect to WiFi as soon as you start up your computer. Some start up WiFi throgu a compination of function keys, you should check your keyboard and your user's manual.
I don'r Understand what do you mean by "connect WiFi Lan settingg". WiFi is not the same as LAN. LAN is the cdirect conection to a broadband modem and if your LAN port is coonected through a cable to your modem, you connect to Interent at startup,
No dial up? I'm not sure if anywhere in civilized wold anyone with a computer still uses a dial up Internet modem.

Wireless radio switch


Usually WIFI is Disabled/OFF if you typically use a wired LAN connection, and a lot of systems only allow you to have One Or The Other on at one time, otherwise it would not know which method to send your internet and network traffic.

So, you may have to Temporarily Disable the LAN connection before you can Enable the WIFI connection.

If your dell has an antenna sticking out of the back, then you have wifi, otherwise I believe this model needs a wireless card. If you do have wifi, here's how to turn it on.

- click Start,
- choose Control Panel on the right
- If the top right says 'View by: Category'
click the down arrow on the right and choose either Large Icons
or Small Icons.
- choose Network and Sharing Center
- you will now see your wireless network if the adapter is on,
if it is not on, chick on Change Adapter Settings on top left
- two connections typically show up:
1. Local Area Connection and
2. Wireless Connection
- right click the Wireless Connection,
- choose Status

> the next window lets you Enable your wireless device, check its
Properties, or Diagnose connection issues.

Let me repeat from above:
Usually WIFI is Disabled/OFF if you typically use a wired LAN connection, and a lot of systems only allow you to have One Or The Other on at one time, otherwise it would not know which method to send your internet and network traffic.

So, you may have to Temporarily Disable the LAN connection before you can Enable the WIFI connection.

Just reverse this later if you want to go back to a wired connection on the desktop machine. I use all WIFI at home, then I connect my laptop by a cable to my router if I have an issue to solve, which is maybe once every two years.

It's easier when you are doing it than it may seem just reading this.

Hope this helps
All the best to you,

that is strange. Does the light for the wifi light up at all?
I have an Acer Aspire and that's one feature that always seemed to be fairly predictable.

Maybe, try to look manually for the available wifi connections through windows.

good luck to you.

You can try Full Reset on printer

Disconnect power cord from back of printer ( while printer is on )
While holding the # and 6 button connect the cord back and release the # and 6 after 3-5 seconds..
The printer will turn off and will turn on again.. follow the Alignment process

Note : By doing this Full Reset - you may loose any Speed Dial/Group Dial entry from the printer

Also try changing the Printer Socket, Connect to walljack directly or another socket on the Surge strip.

It seems the two oval lights on the front of the Acer TravelMate 3003LCi are not only lights to indicate WiFi traffic, but also buttons to turn the WiFi radio on and off for security reasons. If you press and hold the left side button for 3-5 seconds it should turn back on the WiFi radio. Windows XP (and maybe other OS’s) have a power saving function that turns the radio off when not in use to save the battery, so you have to use the buttons to turn the radio back on. Seems like a pain in the @$$ to me, but it’s a clients laptop not mine so he will have to live with that.

I hope this helps someone so they do not have to go through the frustration of trying to figure out why the radio has been turned off.
