Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

Hi, We have a computer with a mobile wireless broadband service. When the computer starts up, applications and programs try to access the internet but we cannot connect for a minute or so till the modem starts up and searches for signal. Our programs etc. are showing errors because they couldn't connect straight away. Can we change something so that we can be connected to the internet before everything tries to access and cannot. In simple terms, is there a setting we can change so programs etc. do not connect before we get connected to the internet? Is it a problem if these programs keep giving error messages (once we connect, the errors appear to stop in the eventvwr file) ? Because we have been told that they may have caused our system to crash recently; the dreaded blue screen scenario ( that is what our security company experts told us). Last question:- If I was to choose to fix the problem with "live chat" , can that person remotely get in and fix the problem? Many Thanks for your time!

    Hi, Thanks for replying! I think I might have to explain the situation a bit better than I did the first time, so were are on the same wave length. Our computer gets turned on and off several times a day ( we turn it off when we don't need it). When our computer starts up, it starts up like most other peoples computers, to a background screen with Icons on the left hand side. There is no problem there but obviously programs and applications are set to connect to the internet when ever the computer is started up, possibly to check for updates. Our internet connection is via a modem (mobile wireless broadband, just like a mobile/cell phone signal via the airwaves to the internet service provider). Sometimes we may not even wish to connect to the internet while using the computer, and this is where I think we may be causing some trouble. Looking in the eventvwr file, a lot of programs and applications seem to try to connect to the internet and fail because we have not connected quick enough or even bothered to connect at all. A lot of things seem to want to update the instant the computer is up and running. Even if we connected to the internet at the earliest possible moment we would be almost one minute too late, because the usb connected modem automaticaly wakes itself up, then searches for signal before giving the option to "connect". Is there a setting that we could change that we can initiate updates on everything and anything that needs to with just one click, so we don't have to update everything one at a time. Or maybe it doesn't matter because when we connect to the internet eventually they may update anyway. Our security software technical department may be worrying us unneccessarily, because they are the ones that told us that we have a problem! Thanks again for your time. Darryl

    Hi again, thanks for your time. I am signing off now for the night but will be back tomorrow to continue. If I have still failed to explain our situation, please let me know. Thanks. Darryl

    Hi, I am back again for a couple of hours! I have been trying to do a screen print etc. of the error logs but fixya won't let me send them. I must be doing something wrong. I have had all the information in the comment window but it said it could not do it. How can I send the information to you without having to type it all out.? Thanks, Darryl.

  • Darryl Traves Mar 28, 2011

    Hi, I was just wondering if my last message got thru? About 5-10 mins ago. There is no record on the screen after logging back in. I was just asking how I can transfer the information to you without having to type it all out.

  • Darryl Traves Mar 28, 2011

    Let me know if that was goodenough or not. Thanks, Sorry about the 3 emails, I could have sent it in one.

  • Darryl Traves Mar 28, 2011

    Thank you for your time and advice. In recent days, I have looked at these error messages etc., and noticed that they all occurred when the computer was started up, so I tend to agree with you. Our security program techs were the ones who said we had a problem. The reason I contacted them was because we had a system crash so bad that the system had to be wiped and reinstalled by a friend of ours. He discovered that something was causing the cpu to run at 100%. The code or name was not recognizable, so he googled it and it turned out to be our Security software, their site advized of a problem and said the software should be uninstalled and reinstalled if you suffered the problem of 100% cpu usage. After the reinstallation our computer was returned to us but I noticed that one section said we had no firewall and the other page said we did, so I contacted the tech dept. and they fixed that by remote assistance but denied that their program had anything to do with our system crash and pointed out all the errors that were occurring on our computer. So this summarizes why I asked for a second opinion. Thank you once again. Darryl. P.S. they offered to fix our problems for a twelve month fee of $189.99, which I said we could not afford for several months, which is true! But we may not have had a problem, yet anyway, I'll keep you posted. Thanks once again.

The initial startup routine cannot be skipped. It will take 30-60 seconds for it to complete that. However you can prevent the programs from starting up by themselves and start them up manually. Alternatively you can programme a small batch file(which I can do for you if you can get me the list of programs you want to start up) so that you can launch all your stuff by just double clicking on the batch file instead of opening the programs one by one

    Ok I got it. These are all compulsory sytem processes. The DHCP is the client protocol that is used in cable/DSL internet connections to connect to internet. These errors will clear themselves when it connects to the internet. The errors because there will be no signal until the router verifies all the settings including your PPPoE password etc., If there are any applications that are encountering problems due to this then let me know

Just bought a used gateway laptop model#m320s3400335 and cannot get internet access through a wireless network or online at all.


SETTING UP A BROADBAND CONNECTION
First you need to decide what type of broadband and Internet service you require and these are -
1. DSL that uses your existing telephone line.
2. Cable that uses a cable service and can include a cable TV service.
3. A wireless 3G network uses the mobile/cell phone network and can be separate or combine with your cell phone account. This type of Internet connection uses an USB wireless device shaped like an USB memory stick.
Note - Combined services generally offer discount pricing and may include a modem/wireless router.

If you use a wireless router with the DSL or Cable Internet service then your laptop with a wireless card can then connect to the Internet. You can also connect to a free WiFi hot spots like McDonalds, Star Bucks, the Airport etc. using the wireless card in your laptop.
If you use the wireless 3G wireless broadband service, then you can access the Internet anywhere where your ISP has 3G wireless coverage. You need to check the service coverage area where you need Internet service.
Once you decide what type of broadband your require, then you need to check with the various Internet Service providers to see if they can offer and the cost of the various plans.
Note the download limits and the associated additional costs if you exceed the monthly download limits. Once you sign up with a Internet Service provider, their documentation will include setting up instructions and/or installation CD.

Solution on a slow Internet connections Problem  The major  causes for a slow...


Solution on a slow Internet connections Problem 
The major  causes for a slow Internet connections. A poor-performing connection can be caused by broadband router configuration issues, wireless interference, or any of several other technical issues with your home network. Follow these steps to diagnose slow Internet connections.
 1. Broadband Router Settings
As the centerpiece of a network, a broadband router can be responsible for slow Internet connections if configured improperly. For example, the MTU setting of your router will lead to performance issues if set too high or too low. Ensure your router's settings are all consistent with the manufacturer's and your Internet Service Provider (ISP) recommendations. Carefully record any changes you make to your router's configuration so that you can undo them later if necessary.
 2. Wireless Signal Interference
Wi-Fi and other types of wireless connections may perform poorly due to signal interference, which requires computers to continually resend messages to overcome signal issues. Household appliances and even your neighbors' wireless networks can interfere with your computers. To avoid slow Internet connections due to signal interference, reposition your router for better performance and change your Wi-Fi channel number.
 3. Internet Worms
An Internet worm is a malicious software program that spreads through computer networks. If any of your computers are infected by an Internet worm, they may begin spontaneously generating network traffic without your knowledge, causing your Internet connection to appear slow. Run antivirus software regularly to diagnose and remove these worms from your computers.
 4. Running Background Applications
Some software applications you install on a computer run in the background, quietly consuming network resources. Unlike worms, these are programs designed to do useful work. Peer to peer (P2P) programs in particular can heavily utilize your network and cause connections to appear slow. It's easy to forget these applications are running. Always check computers for any programs running in the background when troubleshooting a slow network.
 5. Faulty Network Equipment
When routers, modems or cables fail, they typically won't support connections. Certain technical glitches in network equipment, however, adversely affect performance even though connections are maintained. To troubleshoot potentially faulty equipment, temporarily re-arrange and re-configure your gear while experimenting with different configurations. Try bypassing the router, swapping cables and changing network adapters to isolate the slow performance to a specific component of the system.
 6. Service Provider Issues
Internet speed ultimately depends on the service provider. Your ISP may change their network's configuration, or suffer technical difficulties, that inadvertently cause your Internet connection to run slow. ISPs may also intentionally install filters or controls on the network that can lower your performance. Don't hesitate to contact your service provider if you suspect they are responsible for a slow Internet connection.

Tungsten t2 can't acess internet


If you have your T2 connected via cradle/cable, then there really should be no problem. Just make sure your host settings are set identically to your pc's IP info/dial up or broadband service info. If you're trying to connect wireless, you need to have wireless service in order to connect. AT&T, T-Mobile, and Sprint are a few good wireless providers. Good luck!
