There are two ways of getting on line outside your home. 1- you can use a wireless card, built in if yopu're machine has the capability or a universal card. The universal cards are sold at Walmart or Bestbuy and come in bus port or usb port styles. If you use a built in or universal card, you will need to find a location that has free wifi, ie... Macdonald's, Wendy's, Burger King, shopping malls, coffee shops, hotel/motel, etc... all of these offer free wifi. The upside is that it's free, the downside is you have to find a place with free wifi. 2- you can go through your cellular provider, ie... AT&T, Cingular, Sprint, US Cellular, whoever you have and get an airtime wireless card. The cards are around $150, then you will have a monthly charge of around $60. This will allow you to connect anywhere, anytime, as long as you have a signal.

I can't find my outside dryer vent

sometimes dryers do not vent outside but usually they do.

In most cases you will need to look behind the dryer and see the vents it is around connection usually a dryer will then at the closest exterior wall of your house or apartment look and see where the closest exterior wall through dryer is and then from the outside you will see a vented system turn on the dryer before you do so so you can hear and see where the dryer is venting

Outside factors that affect connection speeds Unfortunately, there are events...

Outside factors that affect connection speeds <p>Unfortunately, there are events and conditions that are outside your control. Even with a fast connection, external factors, such as busy websites or spreading computer viruses, can slow the entire web. Popular websites can become overwhelmed with users. For example, when a television commercial mentions a website, many people might try to visit the site at the same time. If the website isn't prepared to handle the traffic, you might encounter delays.<br /> <p>During times of heavy computer virus outbreaks, the Internet can slow down. Many viruses spread by causing computers to send out hundreds or thousands of copies of the virus. This can slow the Internet by sheer volume. You can see what major outbreaks are currently happening by visiting your antivirus vendor's website, or the <a href="">Security at Home</a> website.<br /> <p>Local Internet congestion can also result in slower-than-normal connection speeds. These slowdowns occur when many people try to connect to the Internet at the same time, and they occur most often at peak activity times, such as after school hours when students get home and connect to the web.<br /> <p>If you're on a corporate network, general network and proxy server use can affect your Internet performance. Most network administrators monitor Internet use, and will try to keep people from doing things like downloading large files during peak hours. If you find that your Internet access is slow at times, you might discuss it with your network administrator.<br />

Cordless phones

1) unplug all phones
2) plug them back in and check line.
If you still have the issue,!take a corded phone with. Phone jack coed to your box on the outside of the house. Usually gray, unscrew the first box - you'll see modules there - the one with the last four of your phone number is the module we'll use. Follow the directions on the box to open that module - plug your phone into the module. Here's the important thing - if you don't hear static, then the problem is from inside your house. If you call att to come out they will charge you - but that's the whole unplug the phones and centralize your base better. However, if you still hear static in the outside box, it's an att issue and have to come out at no charge.

I have an at&t 2wire 2701hg-b but i dont have at&t internet i have charter and i am not able to figure out how to get my internet to work with this router please help

att 2 wire is a Adsl Modem (Requires a telephone line jack to get the signals) but charter communication is a cable internet service (not DSL) , Requires a TV cable service for internet .
These two jacks differs and there working differs ..
Means : Att works with the username and password type of authentication but charter requires the MAC address of modem for authentication .
Therefore for a cable internet 2wire 2701hg-b modem cant be used . But yes in case charters has username and password authentication and works with the telephone jack in house then its possible to use the same modem.

ATT is your high speed internet provider and they supply you with 2wire DSL modem which has alot of power supply adapter going bad (you can Google 2wire AC dapter problem).
You can buy your own DSL modem but the key is the setting it up, it depends on how your ATT DSL system is setup, DHCP, PPOe, etc. What ever you do I hope you do have the user name and password that you may need to setup the new modem.
To explain exactly how here will take many many words and pages to explain, and without knowing your exact setup, it will be real difficult.
ATT does not care if you use your own DSL modem but they will not help you setting it up.
I would suggest you to get someone at school that knows a lot about computer, may be aks your school IT person to see if he/she can help you for free pizza.
I hope my explanation will help you out.

Help please

you can go to any wi-fi locations near your area and access the internet on your laptop. I think AT&T offers wi-fi access to its members on any of its designated hotspot /wifi locations (nearly 15,000 company-owned & roaming) e.g. McDonald's, Barnes & Noble bookstores, leading airports, coffee shops, etc. you can visit and login to your account to find more details.
or call them at: 1-888-888-7520

you don't need to install any software/ dsl installation on your laptop when you are using a public wi-fi connection, just ensure that your computer firewall is on and take precautions when sending out any personal info online.

D52w20 cable question

You were trying to use the wrong type splitter. You need to call your cable service to find what type would work with your TV. The spark you saw was the difference in ground potential between your TV set and cable network system. The cable company MIGHT recommend a good commercial diplexer, but they usually get real touchy about useing outside devices on their systems. It would be best to have them do the installs

ATT 2wire 2701 HG-DSL lite on, but bad connection

If you have a 2wire HG2701 it experiences problems. You will need a new modem or a new router. I have one but it has the same problems. I went to FRYS Electronics and bought an speedstream modem. WORKS PERFECTLY
