    ok..then it's most likely going to be your cable modem that's at risk here. try to use the reset button on the back of the modem, if there is one, or call your comcast support folks. It's not likely to be your computer, from what I've gathered.

Not sure what your actual question is. Are you saying that your WinXp machine cannot connect to the wireless network at boot time, but then it is able to at some later time? Please start with the explicit issue you have, and we can go from there.

When I turn off my emachines desktop, I lose the internet connection on my router


That is a common problem with Verizon, especially if you are connected via old copper. Frequently, wet weather causes dropped connections

Tip on speeding up your Internet connection.


I have high speed and my Internet was sluggish at best for months. I tried everything including the following Resetting my cable modem, replacing my cable modem with a newer model. Resetting my Wi-Fi router, replacing my Wi-Fi router. Reinstalling my operating system. Updating my network drivers. Scanning for Malwere and viruses daily. I tried different browers including Firefox, Chrome and others. I updated Internet Explorer with all the latest patches.

I have determine that the DNS server was the issue. The DNS server is a translator, it allows us to just type in the website name like www.microsoft.com instead of remembering numbers like 216.239.51.99. I fix mine by using Open DNS instead of my internet provider DNS Server.

Here is how to fix it. Go to control panel, then click on your local area connection icon. Click on properties and then double click on TCP/IP Internet Protocol. Leave the top settings alone, which will still obtain the IP address automatically. Type in the Open DNS Preferred DNS server settings of 24.25.5.60. Type in the Open DNS Alternate DNS server settings of 24.25.5.61. Reboot your PC and enjoy the speed.

May 2008 domain controller is up and running but i cannot join it with my windows 7 laptop, "domain path not found"


Ah this is an easy one, make sure the laptops MAC address (this can be found by going into the laptops command line and typing 'ipconfig /all') Then you need to go into Doman users and computers (active directory) and add that MAC address to the computers group.
If this doesn't work...make sure your laptop is connecting through the same network. use the cmd line tool Ipconfig /all to find out the ip address of your server and your laptop. If your laptop's default gateway doesn't match that of your server's...you could be cross networking. Try the "ping" command like this go to the command line on your laptop and type Ping <ip address for server> if you can ping it, you can connect with it....also check your group policy that enables wireless connections.

I am constantly losing my Internet connection. Currently using a Belkin ADSL wireless router ( the problem occurs even if I use a cable. After a reboot the internet will be restored but does not last....


That is part of your firewall software. I suspect that you are running Zone Alarm as your personal firewall and part of it is failing. Many firewall providers want you to "fail safe" so when their product fails they block your internet connection. I suggest that you uninstall it and use the windows firewall. Unfortunately this may NOT open your internet connection. All you can do at that point is look on the Zona alarm website to see if they can tell you how to completely remove it or just reinstall the product in the home that it will fix the issue.
