    I just recieved time warner cable but when they try to connect to dsl it wouldn't work. I had this problem before several years ago when I try At&t. I did remember that when I bought it the internet would work temporary but I would have to have Geek squad do something to open the internet? I am on fix income. I don't have 200 + to try them.

Your PC needs a Network Interface Card (NIC) as stated above. If you don't know what this is, you should consider a USB NIC. That is of course that you PC has been upgraded to USB 2.0, if not you will need to get a PCI plug in card and open you PC up to connect it.

As you now know, a connector between your high speed modem and your PC will not plug into your PC's modem. That's not how it works.

Once you have a NIC card up and running just follow the instructions with with cable modem for connections.

You might need a new NIC card, thats high speed capable. What kind of hi speed are you trying to use ex.DSL,FiOS,Cable?

Hi NoMamasTomas...
Yes your computer can have wireless as long as you have a wireless modem hooked up to your main computer
A wireless card that will work for your Windows Me machine is made by SMC.
I am sure there are others that will work in your computer also but I have this type sitting on my desk at this very moment.
So I will give you the website to look at a couple of ones.
Please take time to rate me

If it is a USB modem, connect it to a different computer, and try it.
If it fails to connect, with _two_ different computers, then the problem is in the modem, not in your HP computer. Give that information to HP.

Or, switch to high-speed "lite" (as in "lite beer"), for about the same amount per month as for dial-up, and throw the modem away.

It sounds like, somehow, an antivirus or firewall app is blocking access to those sites. I'd check there, first. Then, if no help, you may have to simply uninstall and reinstall the modem. If you have your manual, reset the modem and follow the steps to install it as if you just bought it. If the modem has a battery, remove it to completely re-set the unit. http://support.actiontec.com/doc_files/GT701R_QW05.5_User_Manual_3.60.3.0.7.6.pdf

The modem is extremely slow-most downloads are far too slow


Dialup phone lines usually only transmit a minimum of 8 Baud. NetZero's high speed (5X) faster is done by caching pages you have already visited, not actially running internet but loading pages faster on your computer. Check your modem setting, 56k, 112K are normal speed setting to connect. Check your actual connection speed, 28.8 is probably all that you are getting on dialup.

Hi sheena -Is your desk top hooked up throgh the router? If not, plug your modem into the wan port on the router. The router should have come with a couple of short cables, most likely blue and yellow. Use the blue to connect your modem to your router. You can check the manual just to be sure. Use the ethernet cable that had been connecting your desk top to your modem, and plug into one of the wired ports on the router. I imagine you'll be using wireless for your laptop. Make sure that it is on. Put the cd in your desk top and run from there. Follow the directions. If you need more help just add a comment and I'll be glad to assist you further. If this solves your probleb PLEASE rate this as fixed. Remember. Need help? Just holler Sheena.

Scenario 2 to 4: Scenario 2) The modem does not have an Ethernet port. The modem is a dial-up modem for traditional dial-up service. To use the Router, you need a cable/DSL modem and high-speed Internet connection.

Scenario 3) You cannot use the DSL service to connect manually to the Internet.
After you have installed the Router, it will automatically connect to your Internet Service Provider (ISP), so you no longer need to connect manually.

Scenario 4) The DSL telephone line does not fit into the Router’s Internet port.
The Router does not replace your modem. You still need your DSL modem in order to use the Router. Connect the telephone line to the DSL modem, insert the setup CD into your computer, and then follow the on-screen instructions

Speed dial not working


I have done it. I have found a way to chance the speed dial settings on my Samsung D900i.
The following instructions work for my phone but I cannot guarantee they will work for everyone else.
YOU WILL NEED A PEN AND PAPER.
Press Menu > select Phonebook > Speed dial (4) >Select
You should see names assigned to the numbers.
Decide which speed dial number you want to change e.g. 2 Mum Mobile (remember the name)
Press Back > Contact list (1) Select
Type in/go down to that name e.g. Mum Mobile (WRITE DOWN PHONE NUMBER BECAUSE YOU ARE ABOUT TO DELETE IT)
Press Options > Delete (5) > Select > choose Yes > Back > Speed dial (4)
You should now see that Mum Mobile has been replaced with a big number 2. This means that speed dial number 2 is un-assigned.
Press Back > Contact list (1) > Select
Decide who you want to be assigned to speed dial 2 (WRITE DOWN PHONE NUMBER BECAUSE YOU ARE ABOUT TO DELETE IT)
Press Options > Delete (5) > Select > Yes (HERE IS THE WEIRD THING)
Press Back > Create contact (2) > SIM (2) >Select
Type back in the name and number of person you have just deleted > Save > Back > Speed dial (4)
You should see that Speed dial 2 is now the person of your choice.
HOW COOL IS THAT!!!!!!!!!!
Press Back > Create Contact (2) > Select > SIM (2) > Select
Type in Mum Mobile and Number (THE FIRST NUMBER YOU WROTE DOWN) > Save.
That is it, repeat the instructions until you have all the speed dials of your choice.
Hope this helps the many frustrated D900i users out there.
