Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

Hello, A couple weeks ago my modem stopped giving me access to the internet. It then connect my desktop to the internet alone but it has never connected the other PC I had running wireless back to the internet. I have a netgear WGR614 router and well I don't know how to reconnect my other PC to the internet wireless. I have noticed that both the link and battery lights on the modem keep blinking and over time the battery light on the modem goes out completely do you think the modem might be the problem? Well thank you for your time and I hope you have a solution to my problem . Lizeth.

If your trying to get on the internet with a wireless connection.and running WINDOWS, .and I am assuming you DO have a wireless router all set up and configured to broadcast the signal (not hidden) ....first we have to determine if the problem is at the router or at the laptop AND at what point its getting stuck ... so first try this

try resetting the router (disconnect the power to it for a few minutes) next --be sure the wifi switch is enabled on the netbook---next---go to CONTROL PANEL>NETWORK CONNECTIONS--right click oin your wifi card and choose properties--highlight INTERNET PROTOCOL and choose properties and be sure "OPTAIN IP ADDRESS AUTOMATICALLY" is checked--Does the laptop "SEE" the router?
You will need your SSID to logon to the router(internet)

My pc is starting alone


Hello,
There are a couple of reasons why your computer could start by itself. The most common is called WOL (Wake on LAN). If you are on a network or have your internet modem connected directly to your network card it is possible to send a magic packet to the port which tells the PC to turn on. This is most often used for servers and other devices to bring them online so resources can be accessed. Some viruses exploit this as well.
The second thing could be a timer in your BIOS which is set to turn the PC on at a set time.
Both possibilities can be checked / disabled by turning your PC on and going into the BIOS. Most computers allow access to the BIOS by pressing the delete key or F1, F2 immediately after turning the computer on. It may even flash quickly on the screen "To enter setup / bios press....???key???". Navigate thru the menus with your arrow keys until you find network adapter or WOL (Wake on LAN) and disable it. Check for a timed power on option as well. If you would like more specific instructions please reply with your PC model and brand, or the motherboard model and brand.
If your network card is not onboard to the motherboard, but instead, a PCI or PCI-E board, you may have to open your PC case and pull out the wire going from the network card to the motherboard to disable WOL.
If you do have your computer connected directly to your internet modem, I recommend you purchase a router to act as a firewall between the internet and your PC. This will also disable WOL from the internet and stop many viruses that could be trying to exploit your PC.
I hope something I wrote here helps you come to the bottom of your issue.
Regards, Chris

I am unable to use the bluetooth app in my laptop..the moment i open, it shows error 797 a connection to the remote access server was not made because the modem was not found.......please help me..........


This is for GPRS connection
You must have from your network provider: the internet access point name, your user name and password.
Download and unzip the attached file in a folder on your desktop

1- Disconnect the device from your desktop
2- On the Activesync icon on your desktop, open "Connection Settings". Uncheck "Allow USB Connection".
3- On your device: Go to "Beam" (in Settings/Connections), and uncheck "Receive all Incoming beams".
4- Then in Programs, click on "Wireless Modem". With the Connection type on USB, click on "Start".
5- Now, connect your device to the desktop. The "Found New Hardware Wizard" starts on your desktop. Click "Install from a specific location", then "Don't search. I will choose...", then click on "Modems", and "Have Disk..." and go to the folder where you unzipped the attached file.
The HTC USB Modem will be shown in the compatible hardware: click to install. Continue if you receive the alert of the software not passing the Windows XP compatibility test (Continue anyway). Finish.
6- Now, in Control Panel of your desktop, open "Phone and Modem Options". Select the "HTC USB Modem" and click on "Properties". In the "Advanced" tab type for "Extra initialization commands":
AT+CGDCONT=1,"IP","xxx","",0,0
where xxx is your internet access point.
Click OK to finish.
7- On your device (always open in the Wireless Modem program), click on Tools/Options. Check the Preset GPRS connections and write in the APN, your network provider internet access point.
8- Finally, on your desktop, go to "Network Connections" and click "Create a new connection". Choose "Connect to the internet", then "Set up my connection manually". Click "Connect using a dial-up modem", then give a name to your ISP. In phone number type *99#. Get username and password from your network provider.

Better keep a shortcut of this connection on your desktop for quick access.

Each time you want to use your device as a modem:
Disconnect your device
Disable Activesync from your desktop by unchecking the "Allow USB connection"
Open Wireless Modem on your device and push on Start (with the Connection Type on USB)
Connect your device, then dial from your desktop using the shortcut you created

PS: Remember to enable Activesync once you've finished.

I have gone to numerous forums and IT friends for support but to no available...nothing at all. My problem I would think not to diffucult but obviously it is. I have a Gateway 560GE running XP. Modem...


When you use USB for networking the "Network" it is on is 10.10.0.1 or similar, Now the Ethernet is 168.192.0.1 or similar. You simply MUST enter the correct address if you wish to change anything. Use the Connect to the Internet wizard and ensure you choose correct net, address. & if you have two Nic's Ethernet & USB, you must make sure you choose right one too.

I can't access the Internet by Belkin Router f5d7230-4


Make sure your connections are right, 90% of problems result from bad or incorrect connection. If this still doesn't work, try unplugging the modem and router, leave it off for a couple of minutes, then plug everything back in. If this still doesn't work, try your local computer repair shop and see if they can futher assist you. Hope this helps! If you have any questions, send a comment

Reset all again.
Power off the modem, router, and PCs and wait 20 seconds or so.
Then power up the Modem first, then the router, and finally your PCs, wait a couple of minutes and try to connect.

Router not connecting to internet modem


This is a tuff router.  I bought it myself hoping for good things, and spent a good two days actually getting the thing to work.

I got mine to work by plugging it into the modem, the laptop I was setting it up with, etc, and then running it all. I would just suggest trying to reinstall it again with everything plugged in from the get go, and then hope for the best.... sorry I cant help more.

Since you did not include your exact model number and type of internet provider I cannot give you more specific instructions. Although you can refer to the links below on how to set it up. If you require further assistance just reply to this and give me the model number of your ISP and the model of your router. Also answer this question " When you plug your computer to your modem do you get online automatically or do you need a username and password"

Stopped connecting to internet through land line


hi there, i had kind a same problem with u, the only difference is mine shows "connected" but i can't surf the internet when others in my network are doing just fine. 1st i tried to uninstall my LAN card driver and the reinstall it back. It worked, i can surf the internet but only for a few minutes. So i installed a firewall, in my case, i installed windows defender. After reinstalling my LAN card driver, i realized an unknown program tried to change some of my LAN driver files, so i denied the program access using windows defender. The problem solved !! Maybe it's a virus or spyware, i don't know because before installing windows defender, my avg and antispyware don't detect any virus/spyware. Hope this help, gud luck

L2TP connection problem


Hello, I've had the electric cut off and immediately back on and I lost my connection from Wireless router to modem. I could not connect in the same way. I could access the router settings with wireless laptop and PC but not to internet on either. I bypassed the router and connected the PC computer to modem then to internet verifying with a browser. I then reconnected the computer cable back to router and router to modem. It stayed connected. But I'm not sure if you have a PC connected to the router also. Sometimes just unplugging some cables and replugging will solve problems. Hope this helps.
