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?

Internet password on pc


It's important to safeguard yourself from dangerous hackers by using passwords in your Web browsers. If you forget the passwords you use to surf the Web, most browsers--including Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome--will allow you to view your saved passwords. Some browsers, such as Microsoft's Internet Explorer, will not allow you to retrieve your passwords unless you use a third-party tool.

Open Firefox. Click "Tools" at the top of the screen and select "Options." Go to the "Security" section, click "Saved Passwords," and then click "Show Passwords." Google Chrome b> Open Google Chrome. Click the wrench icon on the top of the screen. Go to the "Personal Stuff" tab and click "Saved Passwords."
Find Your WiFi Password
b> Although your Wi-Fi password is saved on your computer, it should be stored in a safe place in case you need to allow access to your network. Your Wi-Fi password should be treated the same way as your ATM PIN, as it allows anyone with a laptop the ability to join your network. In the wrong hands, your information could be intercepted if someone is on your network. Locating your Wi-Fi password on your computer is easy, but it should be given only to those you know and trust.

Password Locator for PCs
Open your Internet browser. Type in "CNet.com" and click the "Downloads" tab located underneath the search bar at the top of the browser screen. Type "Wirelesskeyview" in the search bar, and click the "Magnifying glass" button. Click the first search result, followed by clicking the "Download Now" button to begin the download. Save the file to your desktop. Double-click the file to run the program. The password will be displayed in the program's window. b> Password Locator for Macs b> Click the "Finder" icon on your dock. Select "Go" and "Applications" from the drop-down menu. Double-click the "Utilities" folder, followed by double-clicking the "Keychain Access" button. Double-click the name of your network, and check the box next to "Show Password." Type your System Administrator password, and click "OK." Hope this helps.

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.

Ever since I spoke to Verizon about a problem last month with my modem, I keep getting cut off line. After 5 or 10 minutes, I try to get online and get a little window with this message: Up in the...


Hi,
Two resons can cause this problem
1. Loose network cable from the computer to the modem
2. Incorrect browser settings on the computer.

I guess you might have reseated the network cable coming from computer to the modem /router
In case you have not then this would be the first step to start with.

Second restart your computer and at the Dell logo screen tap F8 key a couple of times . You would get a screen windows advance options menu.Select safe mode with networking , using your arrow keys on the keyboard . Hit enter . Login as the adminstrator , try using the internet if the interent works fine in the safe mode with networking without disconenction , restart the computer and reset the browser settings.

In case you need more support , post back with the results of the steps given above
