Help, my dstv doesn't work since yesterday afternoon. The screen is black and there is no sound. Tried to reboot but doesn't work. Anyone who can help?


Try rebooting with your main modem. Just turn the modem off, count to 10 and then turn it back on again. You might also call the tech line for your service provider for advice.

For no reason, my HP laptop stopped working the internet. It works perfectly otherwise. I hard connected the laptop directly to my wirelessouter as well as my modem, still it will not connect to internet.


Connectivity issues can be many.

I would start my first rebooting the main modem.
Once that is up, reboot the wireless router.
Once that is uo, reboot the laptop.
Try to connect.

If that does not work, eliminate the wireless router and connect the laptop directly to the modem via Ethernet cable and reboot the computer again and see if it works. If it does, then it is something with the wireless router. If it doesn't, i would contact the provider so they can verify that they can see your modem on their network. If they cannot, they will advise you further (hardware/cabling issue). This is all assuming that nothing has been changed on any settings of the laptop, router or modem.

My laptop as 5534-1096 did't recognise the modem


Hello pothapalu,

Assuming this is NOT a dsl or cable modem, try the following:

The modem settings can be managed from the control panel as follows:
•Click Start (lower left-hand of screen)
•Select Control Panel
•Click Phone and Modem Options
•Select the Modem Tab
•Select the Modem Name and click properties.
•Check the properties settings and make sure the Modem is enabled and working ok.
-Device Status should be: 'This device is working properly.'

Also, review the other tabs in the properties page (General - Modem - Diagnostics - Advanced - Driver - Details).

Make a note of any setting before changing it.

Have a great day,

Just got new modem and router, main PC on home


Right-click the network connection and click REPAIR, see if that resolves.
If you are getting a Valid IP address (192.168.x.x) then that should help. If you are getting a (169.254.x.x) APIPA address, then you are not getting network connectivity. That may involve the Wireless Security Key, or the security protocol (If using WPA the card in a 1100 may not support that protocol)

Do laptop computers have modems to connect with a dial up service


Hello,
Yes, some laptops have a modem, some don't. Just make sure when you buy. You will probably want to know also if the modem supports data/fax.

My wireless hp says router cannot find host name


Double check your physical connection. It should be this way

Modem > connected to Internet Port of the router
PC > connected to port 1
Laptop > can be wireless

Now you must power cycle your router and modem. Turn off router first then modem. Wait for 30 seconds. Power on modem first, then the router. You must configure the wireless settings on your laptop it doesn't connect automatically.

A router is basically a mini-computer that splits up one internet connections to 4 (or whatever # of ports you have).

Basic Connections to a router:
A Router requires a internet connections, so your broadband modem must connect to the WAN port (theres only one) of the router DIRECTLY. Then Ethernet cables go from the router to the computers on the LAN ports. Don't do something weird like connecting your internet to your computer then your computer to the routers WAN port, it'll most likely mess up.

Once you have connected your router like this, it should work.

If your modem only has a usb port, I have no idea how to make that work out. Sorry. Try getting a new modem from your ISP, or check if your modem does have a ethernet port, if it does just connnect that to the routers wan port.

Also computers should not interconnect with each other with use of a router. Thats what the router is for. Everything gets connected and split up at the router, nothing connects to anything else but the router, basically.

it will as long as the modem/router is connected to a phone line, instead of the pc, the only cable connected to the pc should be a ethernet cable; or you have the pc networking set that it connects via another pc instead of through a gateway, re run the wireless network wizard.

Belkin router and modems


i would suggest returning the router and/or purchase a modem router, as it does away with all the connection problems and the need to click dial to connect as a modem router is always on and does not require a main pc to be on. It will also probably be cheaper than buying a seperate modem.
