Question about PC Desktops

1 Answer

I have 4 computers connected via LAN/router to TalkTalk via buffalo WBMR-G54: PC Intel Mac Pro G5 1.6 eMac 17" Up till the switch to TalkTalk all 4 were happily connected to the internet. Now, while the first 3 are connecting OK, the eMac seems to be continually stalled or very slow. I have checked the settings, which are the same as for the other 2 macs. I've also repaired permissions, Disc Warriored TechTooled I've clean installed. I've created an admin account on the eMac with the bare bones and it's still slow. I've tried a spare identical eMac with the basic system on and it's the same slowness I've swapped ethernet cables. A MacBook via wireless is also working perfectly The eMacs even seem to find it slow to access the router itself what can be the problem? cheers peter

    wow - I totally missed your response. Is there a way to get email notification in future from these forums?


    I understand the manual IP solution and tried it, but it didn;t help.



    In the end the problem was solved by swapping router/modems, and everything works well.


    thanks hothawk! :-)

To connect to the Internet, certain hardware and services are needed, which are listed below. Without any one of these items, connection to the Internet is not possible.
  • Broadband Internet Service (also known as Internet Service Providers or ISP) - Telephone companies (also known as DSL, which uses a telephone line) and cable TV companies usually offer Internet service.

  • Broadband Modem - Normally, a broadband modem can be rented or purchased from the ISP.

  • Computer with a Network Adapter - This is usually a device located inside the computer.

  • Broadband Router - A router is used to connect all of your computers to the network (but is not needed for a single computer). The router also provides a way to connect to the Internet through the Broadband Modem.

Not reading wireless connection


The wireless router needs its wireless settings configured and also the wireless card in all the laptops and or computers needs to be configured with the router’s wireless settings so the laptops and desktop computers can communicate with the wireless router.

To set-up and secure the wireless router from unauthorized access, follow these steps: -
1. Connect the wireless router to your computer with a LAN cable.
2. Start your browser and enter the router's configuration URL IP address.
3. Enter the router setup, login and password
4. Change the admin password
5. Go to the wireless settings and change the default SSID and turn off SSID broadcast.
6. Setup encryption key the strongest is WPA2 (if not then WPA).
7. For further security measures - turn on MAC address filtering and enter the MAC address of the wireless cards on the computer/s you want to connect to this wireless router.
8. Record the settings you have made and keep it in a safe place and Save the settings.
9. Configure the wireless cards on the computer/s with the SSID and encryption settings of the router.
10. Remove the LAN cable between the router and the computer then the computers should be able to connect to the router wirelessly.

I have a Buffalo g54 Wireless router, it keeps loosing wireless connection. Works fine when directly next to the router but when you move away it looses connection.


Buffalo wireless routers are **** and never work right, i suggest you go out and buy either Netgear or Lynksis routers as these are the best, unfortunealeley there is no fix for this a the range of the routers are limited, stick to brand name equipment

kind regards and please don't forget to rate us

Have philips wireless modem from talktalk but dont have installation disc. need to install mamnually


I think this is a wireless router, and therefore does not need an installation disk.

all you need to do is connect to the router (using a lan cable if you cannot connect to it wirelessly) the default IP address should be 192.168.2.1 type this ip into IE you should get a configuration page and then you should then be able to configure the rest of the settings yourself

see info below

Cannot finish installation (Belkin F5D8633-4 wireless modem router N mimo)


ok, obvious questions first:

Do you have a different modem from TALKTALK? can you connect to the internet through that?

if so, you may not have to set a username and password for the belkin router: just connect the belkin router's internet port to the talktalk modem and let the talktalk modem handle the automatic connection.

do you know what protocol the talktalk ISP uses?  it's probably PPPOE; make certain that your belkin router is set to the correct protocol.  if you just hook it up to the talktalk modem though, you probably won't have to specificy a protocol at all.
