I need to know a few things about the network.

So you have a motorola modem, could you look at its bottom label and tell me its brand and model.

So that modem is connected to the internet, and a cable from this modem goes to a router yes? no? And is it connected on the DSL, or INTERNET port on the router? most likely separate from other ports and may have different coloring.

And then from there, are you connecting wirelessly to the router or with wires?

Unable to connect to cable network after downloading network drivers

You need to be sure that your network settings are properly set. If you're behind a router, make sure that your computer is in the same network with it. Ping any website like and see the result by entering this command in command prompt: ping Here is a picture showing what you should see if everything is ok.
If your result is something like "Destination host unreachable" or "request timed out" try this command: ping you have ping with the second command - you should fix your DNS input in Network settings. Usually for DNS server you should use the IP address of your router.If you have ping in both scenarios - you should check Internet Options of your Browser. Make sure you have entered proxy settings if you're using one. Make this initial diagnostic and write about the results so that I could help you.

You've checked the connection from the fuse to the batterie but have you tried to bypass the keyswitch, it could be the switch doesn't connect inside or the key doesn't turn the switch inside.

I have installed dlink 1016 10/100 Switch I have two computers and one dsl router connected to this switch but i am facing slow internet problem. when i connect my pc directly with router it works fine...

you'll probably find the router is set up to ignore ping requests, most are by default, for better results, try pinging a website and compare the results both with and without the switch. The switch shouldn't make any noticable difference to your connections, I use one and there's not perceivable difference in performance.

I have a 2004 mini cooper S. Something is draining the battery and the car wont start - need to recharge the battery for 24 hours. Dealers cant find problem. Took car to a local auto electricians and...

Look at it this way: whatever has a light (trunk, hood, glove compartment, center console, visor mirror, etc) can have a faulty switch. A switch can be N.O. (normally open) or N.C. (normally closed).

The easiest solution would be to hook up a current meter between the + battery post and the wire that would normally connect to the post and see the amount of current that is being drawn from the battery (without the vehicle running). This type of troubleshooting requires patience and time as well as a scope of technical savvy. There should be a very small current draw (< 5 mA) at any given time to power certain security.functions.

With leads long enough for your amp meter, you can view it as you open and close each door/trunk/lid that has a switch that switches a light on. Open and close each item repeatedly noting the draw in current on the meter... should always change the same amount. Eventually, you may find that repeated opening and closing may show that the current may not change during the repeated process which means you just narrowed down the culprit switch. This would be an intermittant switch failure.

However, since this appears to be constant, you will have to measure each and every switch in these devices and note the continuity of the switch as you press it on/off repeatedly to make sure it goes through an open and closed position. Should it remain open (allows voltage to continuously flow) then you would find the faulty switch.

Again, this is time consuming and requires patience. You can also get a diagnoses on the longevity/condition of your battery should there be a failing cell which would promote a declining condition in health, an alternator that is churning inadequate current for charging and/or alarm system, stereo, amp (other post-market items).

The 4 network connection are blinking al the time The connection led home is not on

The 4 Network connection are blinking means there is some traffic passing on those ports.
Please try to do some ping test between the 4 PCs which are connected to that switch.
If ping test is fine that means some problem with the LED Home but not with the entire box

This is quite a long reply and may appear very technical - however, have a read through and see what you can do / answer
| |All of my wireless connections and signals are good and working fine.||I will assume by this you mean you have other devices using the wireless connection OK There could be quite a lot of reasons you are not getting a connection to the wireless - some common issues 1) the wireless is switched off 2) Firewall may be blocking 3) Security code entered incorrectly or old profile 4) the DNS is not working 5)something else on the PC blocking so quite a few things to check - so lets start in order 1) - Most laptops have a wireless switch - some a physical switch other use a combination of the FN key + one of the F key to toggle on/off - make sure this is on 2) The firewall my be blocking access - try to disable the firewall, sometimes this will allow access, but often programs like norton, mcafee etc, when the subscription runs out can cause issues and need to be uninstalled - often using the uninstaller tool available on thier websites - to test this you can do a test using a PING try to see if you can access the internet using ping Press the Windows key (bottom left of the keyboard} and at the same time press the R key, now in the search box that appears - type CMD a black box will appear in there type the following ping if you get 4 replies then you can access the internet and your firewall maybe blocking the access try disabling the firewall. 3) Loginto the router, this may seem difficult but its really straight forward - but you will need to know how to login - a manual will be available from the routers manufacturers website to explain how to login - then goto the wireless section and remove the wireless security - see if the machine will now connect 4) DNS issue - this is where you can ping the IP number BUT not the Name and will appear as though you have no connection. to test this you will need to ping a name and a number and see if you get a reply to the number but not the name do the following Press the Windows key (bottom left of the keyboard} and at the same time press the R key, now in the search box that appears - type CMD a black box will appear in there type the following ping if you get no reply then type the following ping if this replies then you have a DNS issue - to temporally fix this issue, you can use a public DNS set of IPs on your PC - goto this site and use the google dns public address, there is a configuration link which tells you how to setup - if that now works - post back a comment and we can try and resolve the issue 5) try to boot the PC into safe mode with networking switch the PC on and as it starts tap the F8 key, now you should see a menu choose safe mode with networking if that works and allows you to connect to the wireless then there is something blocking access on the PC when it starts normally - post back a comment if that's the case and we can try doing a "clean boot" to try and identify the startup or process that is causing the issue A very useful tool to use for wireless issues is this one , if you can copy onto the PC, this will detect all the networks broadcasting - so you can now see if the adapter will detect your wireless network

You mentioned it's disrupting internet access when turned on. Can you post the results of a ping and tracert (with it connected via ethernet and turned on)? To ping: 1. Start > Run and type: cmd 2. At the prompt, enter the following and press enter (after each line); cd c:\ ping >> ping.txt ping.txt The last line of the above, will open ping.txt in Notepad, for you to post here. To Tracert: 1. Click Start > Run and type: cmd 2. At the prompt, enter the following (again, press enter after each line) cd c:\ tracert >> tracert.txt tracert.txt The last line of the above, will open ping.txt in Notepad, for you to post here.
