Question about E-Machines eMachines Desktop PC

Won't connect to the Internet

This is a T5246 used with a dial up connection. The system will not connect to the Internet. In checking with the ISP the connection is good. In going through troubleshooting, identified Ethernet adapter local area connection, tunnel adapter local area connection *6 and tunnel area adapter *12 idntifying media status if "media disconnected". Also in checking the local IP address identified "transmission failed, error coe 1231". In having some people check this they think the modem is defective, but this is a new computer less than 6 months old.

If you are using a dialup connection, the ethernet connection would not have anything to do with your problem. Be sure the cable is plugged into the line socket. Take a repular phone and plug it into the telephone socket on the computer and see if you get a dial tone. Be sure you have entered the number correctly including a 1 and area code if required. You may want to call the number your computer is trying to call to see if you hear modem tones ( to be sure the number is correct). If all that is in order, your friends are probably right and your modem is bad. It may be covered under warranty.

Where is the wireless switch on the dell vostro 200


Unlike notebook computers, most desktops don't come with wireless networking built in. I can't find any mention on Dell's site that the Vostro 200 has wireless capability, so this computer doesn't have a wireless switch. To use your desktop computer on a wireless network, you'll need to install a wireless adapter. USB adapters are very easy to use since you just have to plug them in. They're not expensive and you can easily find them at retail stores and online.

f) Ensure you have connected your modem to the phone socket, and click Connect. This will automatically attempt to test the new connection by dialing up to the internet.

IPAQ Internet Appliance


You inquire on your nearest Internet Service Provider (ISP) for a DSL plan. DSL provides a bandwidth 3 to 4 times of the dial up.

hi Shinetray first you will need an internet service provider or isp they are called, you will have to check what ones are available in your area.
Then you will need to sign up for a plan with this company, most isp companies will either supply you with or you can purchase a modem from them with all you need to connect to the net.
Even if you are out in the country area now-a-days there are options available.
Your isp provider will tell you how to connect to the net, i would suggest to go broadband or cable, dial up is out of date now, as most of the net is so slow using it, and this is only used as alternative you can't get a broadband connection when travelling or something similar.
if you require anymore information or this does not help with your asking plesse let me know.

Desk top 386 Dell, my son used for last 4 years in college on a network. Now I want to set it up for dial-up and I'm either missing a couple of steps or my modem is dead, plus I need a dial out number


Hi,
try using the internet connection Wizard. setup a new account and follow the steps.
Theres also hardware wizards to resolve any conflicts/issues et,c.
If you are asked for a number to access an outside line, leave blank. unless it,s asking for your area dialling code. i.e 0121 0r 0161 et,c ( UK )
