Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

I got a brand new Dell Vista laptop computer for Christmas, and it has been working just fine hooked up to bellsouth DSL USB connection until about 2 days ago. Now when I click on AT&T Webmail (or anything else for that matter), it does not respond...but the "circular motion" (with the arrow) keeps going all the time. I have tried everything from disconnecting the modem - the USB connection - unplugging from the wall, etc. etc. with no results. I am at a loss as to what is causing this, and I need professional help asap. Please respond quickly....thank you.

Maybe the laptop is configured by default to look for a wireless signal through its wifi drivers, or a different previously installed modem. Go to your Computer/Control Panel/Network Sharing Center and set up a new connection there so your computer knows what to do.

I recieved a new computer for christmas Emachine when I try to use the the wireless dgnd3300 it said there is no internet wireless connection yet my laptop works fine please help


What is the Operating system on the laptop ?
If it is XP then in the bottom right hand corner you will find Wireless network connection ( looks like 1 computer monitor). Use that icon to connect to the wireless network.
If it is windows Vista, then in the bottom right hand corner you will find 2 computer monitor icon. Use that icon to connect to the wireless network.
If it is Windows 98/ME/2000 then use the adapter utility to connect to the wireless network.
For MAC you will see the AIRPORT icon at the top.

Check the wireless settings of the router first . Make sure that yopu have all the wireless settings of the router. If you are not sure about the settings, then open the router set up and check the settings.

Problem with KVM switch and Vista


Your problem has nothing to do with the Operating System (Vista), it has something to do with the brand of your computer. I have similar problem before, I have Vista (Dell), but the time I connected another Vista (Sony Vaio), everything worked correctly.

This is what you need to do:

1. You have to make sure that you are using a standard USB keyboard and mouse.

2. Connect first the keyboard and mouse directly to the Vista computer to see if the USB ports of your computer are working properly.

3. You may power cycle the KVM switch by disconnecting it from the computers (including the keyboard and mouse) and leave it disconnected for 2 minutes.

4. Reconnect everything after two minutes and then reboot the computers.

5. Try using different USB keyboard if problem exist after power cycling the KVM switch.

COMMENT: USB PROBLEMS IN VISTA confused newbie


Hi there. I see you are having a problem with your USB port for windows Vista. try going to your computer manufacturer website and look up your laptop series for driver downloads. What brand is the laptop? I have a IBM/lenovo ThinkPad T40 with Windows Vista on it and my USB ports work fine. Also how old is your laptop? Because it may have USB 1.0 and not 2.0. Mine is 2.0 and works fine in Vista.

Still Havin Trouble


Yes, you can view the front of your WRT and press the yellow Cisco button on the front and hold it for a second. Do this after you have your laptop or whatever on and DSL connected after a reset of everything.

Universal plug and play will take care of the rest. You hold the button down on the front panel (doesn't look like a button just a light but it is a button), hold it until it starts flashing white and leave it for a few minutes so it can do its UPnP thing.

Hope this helps. Post again with more specifics if the problem keeps recurring. Also if you have changed your DSL password (bellsouth) online you must change it in the modem too.

No, you don't need a card, as long as you have an Ethernet to USB adapter, you should be just fine.

No internet connection on my laptops


Please understand as I get very basic to start but things very obvious to you I cannot see.

Generally when including a router in a home network starting from the cable (tv) or the phone socket (dsl) in the wall with a phone wire plugged in. The next box is generally provided by your internet service provider and is a modem/something that connects to the phone line or cable. Then sometimes when only one computer exists computers are directly connected to the modem with an ethernet cable (looks like a fat phone wire with oversize connectors) or a USB cable (small flat retangular ends).

When you want to add a router for multiple computers. The computer gets disconnected. If a USB cable was used it is often replaced with an ethernet cable and that cable connects to the WAN port (probably separate from a block of 4 lan ports) of the router you bought (tell me if you have two routers -- that is a different problem). If your service comes from a cable (tv) company your router may already be properly configured. If however you have DSL service from the phone company the chances your router is correctly configured are less. To finish with the cabling story -- your computer then hooks to one of probably 4 LAN ports all in a block. Now if you are lucky power on all devices and boot up your computer and see if you have internet access. If you do great if not please provide me the name of your internet service provider or a link to their help/support website and I will see what I can do to assist in completing the router setup. Until your wired computer gets access to the internet your girls wireless connections will not work either. Once we get the wired connection working we will address the wireless connections.
If necessary unplug the router and plug the computer back into the original cable until we get the router working.

Wag354g


From the pieces I am gathering I cannot see how to replace the supplied modem/whatever from BellSouth with the modem in the WAG354G (I see no identification of the required configuration options) however we may be able to use only the lan side of the device as an access point connected to the modem device supplied with the DSL service from BellSouth. In order to do this you will need to provide the manufacturer (Alcatel, Netopia and Westell are three possible manufacturers) and model number of the device provided by BellSouth -- it appears they have 4 or more. I may be able to determine some options based on what you provide. I believe the Vista compatibility issue for the router is not related to usability but some special configuration software that can be bypassed using the following web-based approach.

The preceding should get us access to the wireless configuration if needed as follows
