F your modem isn't getting an answer from your ISP

  • 1 Make sure that the cable is correctly connected to both a phone line and your modem and that, if you're using an external modem, it's connected to the PC.
  • 2 Dial the access number for your Internet service provider (ISP) with a regular telephone and listen for a data tone. If you don't get one, then you have the wrong number or your ISP is down.
  • 3 If your modem is internal, skip this step. Unplug the power cord from your modem and shut down your computer. Plug the modem back in and restart your computer.
  • 4 If you have another modem cable that you can use to connect the computer to the modem, swap it with your current cable to rule out a bad cable.
  • If your connection is refused by your ISP
  • 1 Make sure your username and password are still correct. These are usually entered through a connection program that your ISP provided. You will probably have to retype your password, as you won't be able to read it on-screen.
  • 2 Locate the TCP/IP settings for your computer. In Windows, these are found in the Network and Dial-up Connection control panels. In Mac OS 9.2 and earlier, they're in the TCP/IP control panel. In Mac OS X, they're in the Network section of System Preferences.
  • 3 Check that the host name and domain name information are correctly entered in the TCP/IP settings. This information should have been supplied by your ISP.
  • If your connection is accepted but you can't load Web pages or send e-mail
  • 1 Call your ISP's support number to find out if you have been affected by a service outage.
  • 2 Unplug the power from your modem (whether it's telephone, DSL or cable) for at least 10 seconds, shut down your computer, plug the modem back in and restart your computer.
  • If your connection seems too slow
  • 1 Set your Windows computer to MS-DOS mode: Click on Start, Programs, MS-DOS Prompt.
  • 2 Type "ping" followed by an Internet domain name--for example, www.google.com or www.yahoo.com. Macintosh users with OS X can use Apple's Network Utility program to "ping." Earlier versions of Mac OS don't have it built in, but freeware programs are available on the Web.
  • 3 You should get a report saying how many milliseconds it took for your "ping" to reach the destination. A computer communicating with the Internet via a 56-KBps modem connection might typically have a 0.3-second (300-ms) or longer ping. Anything longer than 5 seconds (5,000 ms) indicates a problem with your connection that might be the fault of your ISP.

    Connected wireless to router, excellent signal, but unable to connect to internet.


    connected to wireless router with excellent signal may not means you are connected to internet. make sure your modem provided by internet service provider has signal! connect your computer to modem directly bypassing router. If you are online that means your internet is functional. Then connect modem to your Linksys router and use your wireless to log on to internet.
    Your router wireless signal active and excellent means you are connected to router not necessarily the internet. The modem supplied by your internet service provider with active internet should be connected to you router on WAN port!
    good luck!!

    I got a Dell desktop computer from a friend who bought it new. It only has a dial up connection so I got it hooked up. Problem that I have is it won't dial out to connect to the internet. Ralphie


    Hi dlwbaw

    You have to make a new connection.
    Go to "Control Panel", find "Network Connections", double click on that, here you choose file (in the menu) and choose "New Connection". Follow the Wizard (choose, new connection to the internet, connection without code/username/password, and normaly people have DSL connections).
    Try to connect the pc to the internet now, this should work, if not:
    you have to have the setup way from your internet provider, many times they have a manual on the internet. If it is a connection with user name/ code, you have to Edit your friends internet connection (icon on network connections) or make a new connection with this codes.
    The codes you get from your internet provider

    Some internet providers allow only one computer connected to the internet.

    Hope that helps
    Have a nice Sunday :O)

    I AM UNABLE TO ACCESS INTERNET THRU MY HYBRID APPLE MAC DESK TOP-


    Go into network set up a shared Internet connection using ICS (Internet Connection Sharing) You can use Internet Connection Sharing (ICS) to share an Internet connection among two or more computers on a network. First, you need one computer, called the host computer, that is connected to the Internet and that has a separate connection to the other computers on your network. You enable ICS on the Internet connection. The other computers on your network then connect to the host computer, and from there to the Internet through the host computer's shared Internet connection.
    If your computer is connected to a network, network policy settings might prevent you from completing these steps.
    On the host computer (the computer whose Internet connection you plan to share):
    1. ?id=microsoft.windows.resources.shellexecutetopiciconClick to open Network Connections.
    2. Right-click the connection that you want to share, and then click Properties.getcontent.aspx?assetid=18abb370-ac1e-4b6b-b663-e028a75bf05b&documentset=en-us&renderkey=signed1 If you are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.
    3. Click the Sharing tab, and then select the Allow other network users to connect through this computer’s Internet connection check box.
