This is because of network congestion. Although a physical line is run into your house to access the internet, that physical line runs into another line that other people in your neighborhood use. When alot of people are on you will experience slowness and possibly disconnects from the internet. Night time is typically peak time for internet use. This is fairly normal. There are ISP alternatives however that may allow for a quicker speeds for you.

I bought a used computer.i put a router box onto the internet line so that i can run two computers. the existing computer is working fine but the other one wont connect


First thing to do is to check the other ports on the router if you will have connection, second is to check if the other computer has its LAN card installed (this is where you plugged in the cable from the router to the back of computer. try also to check if the lights on the router port and at the back of your computer is blinking. After that go to the computer that is not connecting. On the desktop you can see my computer or just computer>right click on the computer icon then left click on propoerties> click on hardware tab> then click on device manager> try to look for network adapter and click on the plus sign on its side to expand it. Examine if the icons have any yellow question mark or exclamation point or an x mark on it.

If it does, The yellow question mark means that the drivers for the LAN card is not yet installed. The exclamation point means The driver is not correct or is corrupted. And the X mark is disabled.

For the first symptom, you need to install the driver for the LAN card using a cd that came with it, or try to check its brand and model name so you can just download it.
Second symptom, you need to uninstall its drivers then reinstall the correct and updated one. To uninstall you just need to right click on the sub network icons then uninstall. Reboot/Restart your pc, Install the correct one.
Third symptom, you just need to right click on it then left click on enable. If it happens that the lights are not lit on the router try using the other ports or changing the cables. If the LAN card is not litting up it means it is already defective

Start button flashes yellow - will not turn on


I have found that if the CMOS battery is removed and the unit unpluged for 5 mins (reseting the unit to default config) It will restart. The battery should not be replaced thus to maintain your date and time settings, it shoud not be unpluged for long periods.

The $ bill lever broke on my Alpha 601SC cash register


Hi.
You will need to find a dealer in your area. The bill holders are usually very cheap to replace and you can just fit it yourself. Look up a dealer under cash registers in the yellow pages. Many brands usually have interchangeable holders, so you might be able to use say a Casio one if they are the only dealers in your area.

Hi. Cash registers use special keys. You can't just go and get one cut. You will need to find a Casio dealer in your area. Just look them up in the yellow pages. They can order them for you. I think they usually come as a set.

I need to find out how to secure my router


The best way in my opinion is to put your router behind a linux firewall, such as smoothwall. Any old computer with two network interface cards will work.
A guide to install smoothwall can be found here: http://linux-noob.com/review/smoothwall/express/3/
