My computer seems to disconnect the internet


Wireless or Hard Wired internet connection ?

When you set up a dial-up Internet service connection on your Windows computer, it comes automatically configured to disconnect itself after a predetermined period of inactivity.


This means that if you walk away from your computer and forget that you're online, your internet connection will automatically shut itself down.


If this feature isn't as helpful as you assumed it would be, you can turn it off using the Network and Sharing Center.

Click "Start."


Click "Control Panel."

Click "Network and Sharing Center."


Click "Change Adapter Settings."


Right-click on your dial-up Internet service icon.

Click "Properties."


Clear the check box next to the "Auto Disconnect" listing on screen.

Click "Apply."


The auto disconnect on your computer Internet service connection is now turned off.


also if its running slow


Slow computers that persistently disconnect from Internet access may have issues with the wireless setup or if on a wired connection, there may be a problem with the Ethernet cable or port.

Troubleshooting connection and speed issues can save money rather than taking the computer to a technician or repair shop.


Additionally, some firewalls and security features can make it difficult to access certain types of websites.


Before spending money to have the computer diagnosed, try running through the most common, basic causes of connection issues.


Consider the type of site you are trying to access.

High-traffic sites such as gaming sites can sometimes be affected by high volumes of users accessing or attempting to access the site at once.


Test this by attempting to access the site at different times during the day and evening; peak hours for games that typically appeal to children may be during the afternoons on weekdays while games for older or more mature audiences will see high traffic at night.


Check your Internet connectivity and determine whether you are using a wired or wireless connection.

In the lower right side of the computer screen there should be an icon displaying the Internet or network connection.


Wireless connections are displayed with connection bars similar to those seen on cell phones while wired connections may show the end of a plug next to a monitor icon.


Reset the router if using a wireless connection.


For most home routers you simply unplug the power cord from the router box, wait a moment and plug it back in.


You may have to restart your computer to reestablish a secure connection.


Access the router through the computer and check for updates. Some routers offer firmware updates that fix some connectivity issues.


While updating the router, check for Internet browser updates as well as any critical updates for your computer's operating system.

Verify the computer uses the most up-to-date version of the Web browser available.


Try a different browser. Internet Explorer is the most commonly used Web browser, but not always the best for every site.


Try downloading another Web browser such as Firefox, Opera, or Google Chrome and test the sites there.


If the connections are still disconnected and the Internet speed seems slow, it may be an Internet issue.


Wired Connections


Trace the Ethernet cable from the Internet modem to the computer if using a wired connection.


Unplug the end of the Ethernet cable and check that the plastic head is secure and that there is a click when you return the plug to the modem; do the same on the computer end.


Inspect the Ethernet cable carefully as it runs from the modem to the computer.

If the cable was tacked down with a staple gun or other attachment, check the cable to verify it wasn't accidentally pierced.


Additionally, check for bends, twists or worn areas along the cable.

Measure the length of the Ethernet cable.


In general, cables longer than 100 feet tend to receive poorer signal transmission.


If the cable is longer than 100 feet, replacing with a higher quality cable or moving the computer or Internet modem may resolve connection issues.



Hope this helps.

Wireless Internet router (home) Security


Unsecured means that you have not set any passwords or keys to lock your wireless connection. This is not a good practice. And yes, if the connection is unsecured, then others will be able to use it without any problems.

Do this if you are comfortable:

1) Go to Internet Explorer
2) Type http://192.168.1.1 (If that does not work, then try http://192.168.1.254)
3) Type the Username and password (both "admin")
4) Look for a Wireless tab
5) Look for Security and then look for WEP encryption.
6) Enable 64-Bit WEP encryption and type a key there. Save the settings.
7) Now when you try to connect to your connection, it will ask you for a key, put the same key as you had put in the router.

Please keep in mind to wire your laptop before doing these steps. Otherwise, you may be disconnected.

I wish to connect to my wireless network via my new dell laptop but the password i have entered is incorrect. the laptop is now connected to the internet/network but with limited accesss, when i try to...


Do you know now the password for your wireless??

If no then on the PC/laptop that it was orginally installed-click on start and run and type cmd which will open up command prompt.

Type in the black box -ipconfig...

Whatever the IP address is for your default gateway type it in Internet explorer which will open up your wireless router settings and you should be able to open up wireless security and find out what your password is..

When this is done disconnect from your wireless on the dell laptop and after disconnecting connect to your wireless again and enter your password and see if that fixes things.

Thanks

I CANT GET MY LAPTOP TO WORK WITHOUT THE ETHERNET CABLE IN?


Hi,

When was the last time using your internet connection wirelessly? If this is the first time you will use your wireless internet. You may need to check it with your internet service provider or you may check it with your wireless modem (router) manufacturer.

Using wireless internet connection, you will need to configure the settings in the wireless modem (router). you will need to get an admin password and username.

If you were able to connect to the internet wirelessly, check if you wireless icon (WIFI) on your laptop is on.

Keep me posted.

Thanks.

We have a Linsky Wireless-G router. We have high speed internet from Charter and two days ago I called Charter to reset the modem because we had no internet. Since then, my daughter does not have...


Okay, first things first. Look down in the lower right corner and look for the icon that shows wireless. Is the icon there ? If it is, then right click on it and choose view available wireless networks. Is yours there ? If so , click on it and go from there ?

If the icon isn't there, then right click on My network places and choose properties. From there, right click on the wireless network adapter and choose either repair, or disable. If you choose to disable, you will then need to re enable it. Now look for the icon in the corner, and follow the steps above.

Try that first ,and then repost if it helps or not. We'll go from there if it doesn't .

I have aspire 9301awsm cant go wireless what am i doing wrong im not very good with computers just starting to learn


hmm a very open problem, could be here for days without detail :)

the most basic and common problems are:
(try these starting from the top)
* The firewall is incorrectly set, causing the firewall to reject the wireless infomation sent to the computer, reconfigure/reinstall a firewall

*you are too far away from the router if it keeps disconnecting, try moving closer.

*make sure the connection settings are set to automatic, right cick the wireless icon on the startbar, select status, select properties, scroll to internet protocol, then select properties. all the settings on this screen should be set to:
"Obtain ______________ Automatically"

* if the laptop name claims to have came with wireless built in, try checking the uniqe specification to that specific laptop, as my Acer Travelmate 2300 claims to have wireless built in, but i do not have it.

If none of these work id be happy to create another list :)

Internet disconnections


Are you getting good signal from your wireless network?

Does it disconnect when you leave it a while?

Does it disconnect when you use a public wireless access point?

Are there other wireless networks that are stronger than yours?
