Question about Computers & Internet

2 Answers

Recently, I had to replace my computer's power supply, which took a few days. That fixed my computer. But then I had another problem: My wireless 108G router would not work. When my computer is connected to the cable modem via the router I can't get internet connection, even on the main computer (the one hooked up to the router(, whereas if my computer is connected directly to the modem there is no problem. I would highly appreciate any help on this problem. Thanks.

Try power cycling the modem and router first. Unplug them for about 60 seconds. Plug in the modem. When all the lights come on except the activity light, plug in the router, give it ten seconds and try your pc. If not try this.On the wireless pc, there should be a icon on the taskbar that shows your signal strength if you hold your pointer over it. Right click on that and click on show available networks. If yours shows, click on that and click on connect. If that doesn't help, go to your command prompy. Start , run and then type cmd and click ok. Then type ipconfig /release. There's a space between the g and the slash. Then type ipconfig /renew. Then close the box and try your internet. You may have to go back and do the first step after doing this. If this still doesn't work, go start>my network places>view network connections. Right click on local area connection and click on repair. Try it now. If still no luck, go back to start>my network places>view network connections>right click on local area connection>click on properties. Click on Internet protocal (tcp/ip) and click on properties. Make sure Obtain IP address automatically is selected and obtain DNS Server address automatically is selected. If they are click cancel. If not, select them and click ok. Then close. Try again. If this has solved your problem please rate as fixed. If, please don't rate yet. Just add a comment and let me know what happened and I'll be happy to help you further. Thanks.

You may have a problem with your network configuration.
I have found that a firewall or virus protection program can prevent you from communicating in various ways.

PC - dies no power, but comes to life after a few days if left unplugged. Then it works and at somepoint dies again (no fans, power, etc) How do I fix?


My first thought would be that it is a power supply problem. But, before replacing the power supply, unplug the power cord from computer and wall plug, plug it in a gain making sure it goes in all the way.
If still flaky, its probably a power supply problem.
Hope it helps.

We have had trouble free operation of our LinkSys Wireless Router and the WMP54G wireless G PCI Adapter. However, recently, we have found that the HP Pavillion computer will start to cycle off and...


Try booting into safe mode, and disabling the power management for the wireless adaptor (in windows, control panel, system, device manager, then click the plus sign on "network devices" and select the wireless device by right clicking it and selecting the "properties"...one of the tabs will have a setting on the page for power management- (you do NOT want to allow the device to shut itself off).
For a better solution, you'll need to post your OS.

By the way, it might not be the PCI card, but rather your OS, or some hard ware problem (such as RAM or Power Supply failing with the drain from the wireless antenna). Let's start with your OS and rebooting into "safe mode + networking" (hit "f8" while rebooting) once you've turned OFF power management for the wireless PCI device.

Possibly check the outdoor push button. It may be possible that it has moisture in it causing a short.

Speaker buzzing at random


It sounds like the socket on your computer is becoming worn or has a loose solder joint.

If you feel comfortable with a fine tipped soldering iron and stripping your computer down I would take a look there first.

Also check the power supply for the speakers to make sure it is not getting too hot.

You guys probably have a bad wall plug power supply as many others. The supply is made with under rated capacitors which fail after a couple month of use. Try to find a replacement power supply 5V 1.5A or so, and your problem goes away.
