Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

I recently moved house and got virgin media to install phone tv and broadband. Connected the modem through Ethernet. Worked fine....then the PC froze and when I restarted, start up message was "PORT 00 error: Error refreshing port". Took out modem and same message still appears. Windows doesn't load and system hags for CD to be entered. Tried "repairing windows" with CD to no avail. Any ideas. It's a Medion PC btw forget what model.

That's fantastic, but other than blaming either Virgin or your new house for the PC problem, not terribly instructive.  What's this about a modem...you mean you connected your PC to Virgin's cablemodem using cat5 ethernet, which is pretty normal?

  Give exacting circumstances (e.g. timing after the BIOS and Windows screens came up) and descriptions of the error messages, and people can help out, especially if you go create a new problem under your exact PC model, and try to suss out the problem by googling for 'Port 00 error' and your model.  

As it is it sounds like Windows found bits of itself missing (as moving vans can cause sectors to go bad on HDs) and vainly hoped you would have the Windows 98 or XP install CD handy to fix things.  It is probably time to install a new hard drive and appropriate OS of your choice, and copy info over from the old drive before labeling and packing that thing for spare use.

Hi I have a advent 7000 laptop that worked perfectly untill my virgin media broadband went down on friday , I lost all services broadband , tv & phone and it was not restored untill sunday teatime ....


this is nothing to do with virgin media going down, you have malware on your pc! Try downloading and running Spybot from safer-networking and malwarebytes free version from download.com. If they don't work then you need to take it in to your local pc repair guy.

Automatic installation failure


unless you were switching from DSL to cable Broadband, there usually wouldnt be much reason to rerun the software just because you got a new computer. when you ran the software the first time on the other computer, it was the router you were setting up, not the computer.
if the new computer is not getting internet when hooked to the router, try this.

1.turn off computer and unplug electricity from router and cable modem.

2. connect all ethernet cable to the right location. ethernet from modem to router goes in the non-numbered port, ethernet from your computer to router goes in numbered port.

3. plug in cable modem electricity first, wait for all its lights to come on like normal.(this part is important). the ethernet light on the modem (it might be labeled ethernet, link, pc link, or something similar) will not be lit, this is normal until you get to the next step

4. plug in the router electricity, give the router 2-3 minutes to get connected to the modem.

5. start up the computer, wait for everything to fully load and check internet again.


hope this helps.

Laptop finding router but no internet connection


If you can connect directly to your virgin Media Broadband and get internet then your laptop and broadband router is fine.

The wireless router appears not to have a DNS entry and you will need to add that manually.

I suggest that you connect directly to the Broadband modem, be sure you can get onto the internet. Once you have confirmed you can get onto the internet you need to get the dns information from your Broadband modem for later.

once connected directly to the broadband modem, click start>run> then type "CMD" then click open. you will get a prompt type the following and record the DNS Server ip addresses.

"ipconfig /all" then hit enter
this will display your ipaddress information but mostly you need the DNS server ip addresses.

once you have recorded them rerun the install, but this time instead of at the end of the install where it shows the Wireless router information you can modify or change it and add the DNS server entries.

Also by default most wireless routers ip address is 192.168.1.1 and you can type that from a internet explorer and change it from there as well. I believe it's no ID or user name and the password is admin.

Good luck

Buffalo router


Let me verify your network configuration with you. You have your modem connected to the WAN/Internet port of your router via an ethernet cable and then your PC connected to your router via another ethernet cable, correct?

If this is your setup, then try this:
  1. Unplug the power cord from the modem & router
  2. Plug the power cord into the modem and wait for it to boot up (most modems have an "Internet/Connection" light to indicate they are connected to the ISP)
  3. Plug in the power to the router, wait for it to complete the bootup process (usually when the lights stop flashing it's done), and see what happens.

Virgin broadband modem


You didnt explain about how you were connecting the desktop and through which....USB or Ethernet. You say you have no problems with the laptop most of us connect the laptop throught the USB port and our desktop through the ethernet the both connected to the modem. All you are having problems with is networking. If you open up the connection adapters looking first at the laptop one and confirming that the TCP/IP protocols are the same or should be. Copy the laptop one and place those protocols in the desktop adapter it must connect. It will complain to you if the address's is the same, use another number.
