Error 815


First you have to make sure you should have working internet connection. Error 815 mostly related to ISP side so suggest you to contact ISP first.
You can also try below steps if ISP says everything is fine.

If the connection can be established by using other device/system, please create a new administrator account on the Windows Vista machine to troubleshoot the issue:


1.Click Start > type user account and click the User Accounts control panel.

2.In the User Account control panel, click Manager another account.

3.Click Create a new account, type an account name > select Administrator and then click Create Account.

4.Logoff and logon with the new account and try to establish the connection to check if the issue persists.

I want download usb modem drivers for windows 7, for connecting internet through my lg kg195 mobile


Make sure that you can see the phone's modem in the modem section of device manager(Preset in Control Panel). For airtel connection you have to enter the APN(Access Point name) as "airtelgprs.com" in the PC suite to connect to internet and the dialup number is *99#.
If your pc suite dont have a option for entering the APN then you can manually enter it here-->Go to Control Panel>>Device Manager>>Your phone's modem Properties>>Advance tab>>In Extra Initialization Commands enter this (+CGDCONT=,,"airtelgprs.com") without brackets and create a dialup connection with *99# as dialup number using ur phone's modem, Username n Password field should be blank.

Hi, Step 1: Make sure the network cable is connectedMake sure that the network cable is connected to the computer and to the modem. If your computer connects to a hub or to a router, make sure the cable that connects the hub or the router to the modem is connected. Step 2: Make sure that the network adapter is enabled
  1. Click Start, click Run, type ncpa.cpl, and then click OK.
  2. Right-click the Local Area Connection icon. Click Enable if the option is available.
Step 3: Reset the modem

  2. Turn off the modem. If the modem does not have a power switch, disconnect the power supply from the modem.
  3. Wait two minutes.

  2. Click the Hardware tab, click Device Manager, and then locate Network Adapters.

  4. Click Uninstall, and then click OK. In the dialog box that prompts you to remove the files that are associated with this device, click Yes.
  5. Restart the computer. Or, click Action, and then click Scan for hardware changes.
  6. If Windows finds the device but does not recognize it, you must install the latest driver for your network adapter.
If you have a Realtek 8139 network adapter, updating the driver seems to resolve this issue. For more information, visit the following Realtek Web site: http://www.realtek.com.tw/downloads/Microsoft provides third-party contact information to help you find technical support. This contact information may change without notice. Microsoft does not guarantee the accuracy of this third-party contact information. Step 5: Create a new DSL or cable connection

  2. Click Create a new connection under Network Tasks. Click Next when the wizard starts.
  3. Click Connect to the Internet, and then click Next.
  4. Click Set up my connection manually, and then click Next.
  5. Select Connect using a broadband connection that requires a user name and password, and then click Next.
  6. Follow the remaining steps. Use the connection information from your Internet service provider (ISP) to complete the wizard.
Note You may have to use software that is supplied by your ISP to create the new connection.
