I cant watch video

This issue might be due to following four problems :
  • YouTube Server is down
  • Problem Browser
  • Slow Internet Connection
  • Due to third party Anti-Virus or Firewall

To fix this problem you need to optimize browser:
  • Delete History
  • Clear Cache
  • Delete Cookies
  • Remove tool-bars
  • Update flash player
Stop Anti-virus and firewall before opening internet radio.
Restart computer and Router.

If problem still occurs then use Internet Optimizer tool. I would suggest to use a system utility tool like Intel Software Partner Reginout. It will not only optimize PC but will also optimize internet by running its Internet Optimizer feature. WebRepOverall ratingThis site has no rating(not enough votes)

Unable to connect to the internet

Oboy this issue can be alot of things. So here are a few
1)antivirus/firewall software can stop ur connection to any and all open ports. If you have a firewall "remove it" if you have Norton 360 "remove it" if u have Norton Internet Security "remove it" then try to surf (note: alway replace ur antivirus after resolving ur issue)
2)check the internet access with another pc it may be ur ISP "internet service provider"
3)if its a laptop look for a WIFI switch make sure its on and looking for connections. If no WIFI try hooking up directly through ur hardport 10/100 network adapter
4) if u have refreshed your OS "operating system" lateley check in your device manager make sure your network drivers are loaded meaning there are no yellow question marks beside them.

Skillground error 357

i've tried (for several days now) to download the software, but everytime i click "download & play" nothing happens
(it looks like the 'page' just keeps refreshing it self for several minutes, ending in a "error code 357" message!

I contacted skillground numerous times , and thou they are helpful in their replies.. they keep saying that its my router and/or firewall that prevents the software from downloading.. BUT

even when i disable the router (running the internet cable direct from the "wall plug" into my pc) , and disableing my firewall (Norton) (i have even tried uninstalling the Norton).... its still the same problem

I've allowed cookies... set the internet security to minimum ..disabled the router and Norton firewall, ..removed the skillground 'program' and even tried to create another account ...but its still the same problem ... so i've ran out of idea's

but have you tried checking (in addition to your router, and norton firewalls) the built-in vista firewall?

How to remove nortan Internet security firewal from coputer

In your Symantec folder should be an uninstaller. Click on that and follow the onscreen directions. My advice though would be to keep the Norton's and turn off the windows firewall. With both on they will clash. You have more options for internet security in Norton's than in the windows firewall, but it's up to you. Good luck.

I am constantly losing my Internet connection. Currently using a Belkin ADSL wireless router ( the problem occurs even if I use a cable. After a reboot the internet will be restored but does not last....

That is part of your firewall software. I suspect that you are running Zone Alarm as your personal firewall and part of it is failing. Many firewall providers want you to "fail safe" so when their product fails they block your internet connection. I suggest that you uninstall it and use the windows firewall. Unfortunately this may NOT open your internet connection. All you can do at that point is look on the Zona alarm website to see if they can tell you how to completely remove it or just reinstall the product in the home that it will fix the issue.

Problems with the Web Configuration Screen

# The computer may not have received an IP address. Restart it to have an IP dynamically assigned (or run "winipcfg" in Windows ME or earlier, or "ipconfig" utility in Windows NT), and then launch the browser. # You are running a software firewall on your computer. Disable it while accessing the router's configuration. Also you should realize that running a firewall in conjunction with a NETGEAR firewall may cause other problems. We recommend turning off software firewalls. # Remove proxy settings on your Internet browser. # Remove the dial-up settings on your browser.
