Sounds like your internet is not configured correctly. What has changed (updates, new hard or software, etc) since the last time you were able to connect?

My computer seems to disconnect the internet


Wireless or Hard Wired internet connection ?

When you set up a dial-up Internet service connection on your Windows computer, it comes automatically configured to disconnect itself after a predetermined period of inactivity.


This means that if you walk away from your computer and forget that you're online, your internet connection will automatically shut itself down.


If this feature isn't as helpful as you assumed it would be, you can turn it off using the Network and Sharing Center.

Click "Start."


Click "Control Panel."

Click "Network and Sharing Center."


Click "Change Adapter Settings."


Right-click on your dial-up Internet service icon.

Click "Properties."


Clear the check box next to the "Auto Disconnect" listing on screen.

Click "Apply."


The auto disconnect on your computer Internet service connection is now turned off.


also if its running slow


Slow computers that persistently disconnect from Internet access may have issues with the wireless setup or if on a wired connection, there may be a problem with the Ethernet cable or port.

Troubleshooting connection and speed issues can save money rather than taking the computer to a technician or repair shop.


Additionally, some firewalls and security features can make it difficult to access certain types of websites.


Before spending money to have the computer diagnosed, try running through the most common, basic causes of connection issues.


Consider the type of site you are trying to access.

High-traffic sites such as gaming sites can sometimes be affected by high volumes of users accessing or attempting to access the site at once.


Test this by attempting to access the site at different times during the day and evening; peak hours for games that typically appeal to children may be during the afternoons on weekdays while games for older or more mature audiences will see high traffic at night.


Check your Internet connectivity and determine whether you are using a wired or wireless connection.

In the lower right side of the computer screen there should be an icon displaying the Internet or network connection.


Wireless connections are displayed with connection bars similar to those seen on cell phones while wired connections may show the end of a plug next to a monitor icon.


Reset the router if using a wireless connection.


For most home routers you simply unplug the power cord from the router box, wait a moment and plug it back in.


You may have to restart your computer to reestablish a secure connection.


Access the router through the computer and check for updates. Some routers offer firmware updates that fix some connectivity issues.


While updating the router, check for Internet browser updates as well as any critical updates for your computer's operating system.

Verify the computer uses the most up-to-date version of the Web browser available.


Try a different browser. Internet Explorer is the most commonly used Web browser, but not always the best for every site.


Try downloading another Web browser such as Firefox, Opera, or Google Chrome and test the sites there.


If the connections are still disconnected and the Internet speed seems slow, it may be an Internet issue.


Wired Connections


Trace the Ethernet cable from the Internet modem to the computer if using a wired connection.


Unplug the end of the Ethernet cable and check that the plastic head is secure and that there is a click when you return the plug to the modem; do the same on the computer end.


Inspect the Ethernet cable carefully as it runs from the modem to the computer.

If the cable was tacked down with a staple gun or other attachment, check the cable to verify it wasn't accidentally pierced.


Additionally, check for bends, twists or worn areas along the cable.

Measure the length of the Ethernet cable.


In general, cables longer than 100 feet tend to receive poorer signal transmission.


If the cable is longer than 100 feet, replacing with a higher quality cable or moving the computer or Internet modem may resolve connection issues.



Hope this helps.

Whenever I connect to the internet (wifi), the internet page does NOT load as it ought to. It remains blank (white).


That is just your default "blank" startup page. You can change it your web browser.

IE - Tools > Internet Options. In General there is Home page field for you to customize.

Other browsers have similar settings.

Hour glass sign on the screen of my MP3. won't go away and MP3 won't start working. The hour glass sign just stays on the screen.


I have a Craig CMP616F MP3 player. In "Set Up", After I set the "online mode" to "Media Device" from "USB Disk", it was working ok until I loaded Apple iTunes. When Apple iTunes attempted to load, it crashed! Flashing start up screen, blue with Hour Glass, then blank out, attempt to restart and the same thing, blue screen with hour glass. There is no known reset proceedure at this time, I started it, let it run and recycle endlessly until the batteries expired. Not recommended, because of battery life, but this did reset this model. Success! A drastic step for the irrecoverable MP3. When I used a standard charger 110v Ac to USB (wall current) it started up, no lost files! Lucky, maybe, I hope this will work for you if you haven't thought of it.

I try to click on find frieds and the hour glass


What that mean is that there are a lot of people on facebook. If you wait 5 to 10 minutes then try again. If that does not fix the issue. You might have a virus or trojan. What you need to do is do a virus scan on your computer. Why this would slow your computer down is because those two things can use you internet and slow everything with the internet.

Browser doesnt load page


Just like a computer browser, whenever you browse the internet, the G1 will download images, text, passwords, etc from all sites accessed. it places this info in a place called a 'Cache'....it can get so full it will prevent pages from loading. to fix this, clear your cache. there are 2 ways to do this.....

1: MENU > SETTINGS > APPLICATIONS > MANAGE APPLICATIONS > BROWSER > CLEAR DATA

2: BROWSER > MENU > MORE > SETTINGS > SELECT CLEAR CACHE, CLEAR HISTORY, CLEAR ALL COOKIE DATA, CLEAR PASSWORDS

after doing that, turn off and on the handheld and try it again. if you keep up on doing this everytime youre done browsing the web, it wont happen again.

good luck :)
