    if you are using or having a wireless connection they try having a wired connection first.

    If you are already connected through a wired connection , then wire direct your

    computer to the modem , if you can browse and surf on the internet flawlessly,

    check the documentation that comes from the router or hub you are using and

    have your computer be enrolled and not blocked.

How to cross check your ISP charges your Internet usage fairly


I personally use NetWorx. Witch is a free and simple, yet powerful tool that helps you objectively evaluate your bandwidth situation. You can use it to collect bandwidth usage data and measure the speed of your Internet or any other network connection. NetWorx can help you identify possible sources of network problems, ensure that you do not exceed the bandwidth limits specified by your ISP, or track down suspicious network activity characteristic of Trojan horses and hacker attacks.
The program allows you to monitor all your network connections or a specific network connection (such as Ethernet or PPP) only. The software also features a system of highly customizable visual and sound alerts. You can set it up to alert you when the network connection is down or when some suspicious activity, such as unusually heavy data flow, occurs. It can also automatically disconnect all dial-up connections and shut down the system.
The incoming and outgoing traffic is represented on a line chart and logged to a file, so that you can always view statistics about your daily, weekly and monthly bandwidth usage and dial-up duration. The reports can be exported to a variety of formats, such as HTML, MS Word and Excel, for further analysis.
With NetWorx you can
• Find out and monitor how fast your Internet connection is.
• Find out and monitor how much Internet traffic you consume.
• Verify whether your ISP charges your Internet usage fairly.
• Detect a suspicious network activity on your computer.
• Perform simple network tests such as ping and trace route.
• Be notified about excessive Internet usage

Acer Aspire 5733 Wireless connection lost


Check the wireless router and high-speed modem.

If the two are not powered on, or if the Ethernet cable connected the two is not completely inserted into both connection ports, you are unable to access the Internet on the Acer Aspire One laptop computer.


Activate the wireless Internet connection on the laptop computer.

Right-click the wireless icon on the desktop, then choose "Enable" from the pop-up menu.


Without activating the wireless receiver on the Acer Aspire One, the laptop is unable to detect any wireless network.


Select the appropriate network you wish to connect to.


Your computer may be attempting to connect to a different Internet connection, preventing you from access the network you desire. Right-click the wireless icon, select "Search for available wireless networks," then choose the network you want to access.


Restart the computer.


The system may have booted and failed to detect the wireless receiver. Restarting the computer corrects this issue.


hope this helps

Cannot connect to internet


Try these two methods below.

Method 1: Check your local connections at network and sharing center, if there are two enabled or active networks. If there is two active networks, click on Local Area Connection Link (for windows 7) on one of the active networks and disable it. Now right click the internet icon on your taskbar and troubleshoot problem. If it doesn't resolve the problem, you will have an option to resolve the problem as Administrator.

Method 2: Go to local area connection status on an active network, click properties then double click on internet protocol version 4 and make sure that "Obtain an IP address automatically" and "Obtain DNS server address automatically" are checked then click OK.

If it doesn't solve your problem. Please contact me so that I can assist you more further.

My computer will not connect to the internet


maybe you should go through the control panel to the internet/network page, then to the network and sharing centre to view and manage your connections. You should identify your network and verify if the connection is alright. If not click on connect and put in your security code to activate a connection. Once activated, you should be able to use the internet facility.
