Can connect to router but not internet


Ok so the router will broadcast even without an IP from the modem. Without the IP even though your pc is talking to the router you will have no internet. The IP is assigned to the modem from your ISP "internet service provider" The router has to assume the IP then assign a mac address to the pc using the internet. A residential modem meaning your not a business is given a dynamic IP which can change at anytime the blade server wants it to. A business gets a static ip which never changes. There lies your issue. Whats happened is your modem has been assigned a new IP and the router is still trying use the old IP. So unplug your modem and router. Plug the modem back in and let it sync up. Once all the lights are back on "with exception for the "link" light plug the router back in give it a cpl minutes your internet will work again.

Power_LED Buzzer on Mainboard continues to beep every 3 seconds fans are operating but system doesn't boot or show nothing on monitor(which is ok)


well you didn't say what the beep code was, is it just one beep every three seconds? Or is there long beeps, short beeps, and long and short time between them before they repeat?
If it is one, beep, every three seconds and the beep is one second long, there is a problem with a connection somewhere. Typically it happens in older computers that are in dusty environments. You can try to (only if your comfortable with how to do it) unplug the memory modules from the motherboard and keep track which socket which is plugged into, and mix them up so they are in different slots from their original positions, then try to reboot.
If that does not work and there is no display at all (even POST information) it could be a bad card (modem, sound, video, etc.) remove all but the video cards and try a boot again, if you can boot then plug only one card in each time you try to boot and when you find the offender replace it with a new one (that is if you use that card, if it is a modem and you do not use dial up internet you do not need the modem card plugged in.
But one, one second long beep every three seconds typically means there is a connector problem somewhere, if the computer is older carefully clean out the dust and unplug and re-seat all of the connectors and hopefully that will solve your problem
Good luck!

Vidios on youtube stop for two or three minutes at a time,why?


Hello,
This account for many things but most times it is slow Internet connection. Video take up a lot of bandwidth. If you are downloading a video AND veiwing other websites AND someone else is using a laptop, your bandwidth is narrowed down a lot.

Option 1. Increase your bandwidth - upgrade to a faster Internet speed.Option 2. Close programs not in use.

One final option is to refresh the connection. Unplug power from your modem for 1 min, plug back in and retry your download.

Good Luck

Every time we try to connect to the wifi on the Veriton, it says that the modem has given an error code of 651. How do we fix it?


First, you must restart the computer then try to connect to the Internet again. The user should also download and install the latest service pack for the Windows XP operating system from the Microsoft website(***http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/en/details.aspx?FamilyID=5b33b5a8-5e76-401f-be08-1e1555d4f3d4&displaylang=en ***. Here is a reminder: the user should never unplug the USB modem while it is in the process of obtaining an Internet connection.

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 used Internet many hours, days; without problems. But now, I can not connect anymore. PPP daemon has died = A modem hang up the phone (exit code = 16). Var/log/messages = warning: secret file...


your password file (papsecrets) has been given access to users outside your login.
This means someone could potentially hack your connection by gaining access to your papsecrets file.

User permissions for papsecrets needs to be reset to you only, and no global/group access should be allowed. Note: it is a hidden file but is in folder /etc/ppp/papsecrets

Restore the original permissions with:
# chmod a-rw /etc/ppp/papsecrets
# chmod u+rw /etc/ppp/papsecrets


Basically your operating system is defending you from sharing your internet passwords with the world.
