Posted by on

  • mstremain May 11, 2010

    This is not enough information for anyone to help you!

    What kind of comp do you have? RAM? GHz? Are you using wireless routers or is the ethernet cable connected directly from your MODEM (not a router!!!) to your PC?

    What kind of virus software and firewalls do you use?
    Do you HAVE a virus? Has it ALWAYS been this slow - or did this suddenly slow down?

    Is your entire computer slow loading software applications (try Microsoft Word or Works)? Does your computer EVER freeze? (freezing up is never normal)

    What browser are you using (AOL, Netscape, Internet Explorer, Firefox)? When is the last time your browser was UPDATED?

    Thanks!

You can get free support from you DSL carrier. But be prepared to spend some time with them on the phone. It could be a problem on their end or with your equipment from them, modem ect....

Where is the wireless switch on the dell vostro 200


Unlike notebook computers, most desktops don't come with wireless networking built in. I can't find any mention on Dell's site that the Vostro 200 has wireless capability, so this computer doesn't have a wireless switch. To use your desktop computer on a wireless network, you'll need to install a wireless adapter. USB adapters are very easy to use since you just have to plug them in. They're not expensive and you can easily find them at retail stores and online.

NET CONNECTION IS OK , BUT I CANN'T GET ACCESS TO INTERNET


You may be experiencing down time. Phone your Internet Service Provider and ask them to check connectvity of your line. They may reset it, this I Ideal. On your Router the DSL/Internet light should be lit, if this is not the case then resetting the line with the help of your Internet Service Provider, will work. Also make sure all the cables are pluged in, ethernet cables are well as the telephone spliter. Green light should show on ethernet ports, 1-4, which ever is pluged in.
Did it work before and now it doesn't or is this the first time connecting with this Computer/laptop, to this Router/Internet?
Please take the time to rate my expertise.

I can;t received faxes on my computer


Are you using DSL connection or Dial-up?
What OS are you using?

The fax line and voice line are using the same frequency so you should be able to fax directly from your pc fax modem when using Dial up connection but in DSL the data and voice are using different frequency. So in normal situations you wont be able to fax using DSL modem unless you use a separate fax machine.

However, if specified during the set-up of the DSL line, the signal can be separated so that some of the bandwidth is used to transmit an analog signal (for voice and fax) while the remaining bandwidth is used to transmit digital data. This allows for the use of the telephone or fax, and computer on the same line and at the same time. When inquiring about DSL with the service provider, specify the desire to use the phone line for voice or fax calls while connected through the computer to the Internet.

Reference the following setup options for using a DSL line with HP all-in-one or fax products.

Please refer to my solutions to your issue at http://www.fixya.com/support/t1440518-want_able_fax_from_computer_even_though

I have just bought a DSL Starter Kit from Actiontec and I am not sure that it will work for my phone service or where I am located at. The store says they will not allow me to return it if I open it,so I...


It is highly dependent on which ISP you have. I would recommend calling the ISP's tech support line, and asking them if they support this specific model. I know my old actiontec didn't support my verizon dsl at home. 
Otherwise, post your ISP here, and we can google it for you.

Since I've hooked up my internet my phone has gone dead. It is not an outside problem. My phone was fine before I pluged in the dsl. I have disconected the box and tried pluging in just the phone and that...


contact your service provider and ask them to put a filter in your customer service access on your outside phone interface sometimes the dsl will over power the line filters and keep your phone from working try unpluging your dsl and all your phones for 5 min then pluging just 1 phone in and see if you have a dial tone

Lost internet connection. I use BT Voyager 190 ADSL modem on AOL with WIndows Vista. Power and Thernet indicator lights are on solid, but DSL and Internet indicators are off.


Sounds like there is a issue with your phone line. The DSL indicator is the phone line. Check to see if you have a dial tone or if a message is on the phone you haven't listen too, if you have message service. Try unplugging all phone connections as and replug them in again. You also might need a filter for your DSL to phone line. Also if you have an alarm that is monitoring your system, you need to by pass alarm and use a filter.

Lexmark x6150 unalbe to fax phone line is active using dsl


Hey Tony - Did you recently hook this up to the DSL for the first time? This unit is supposedly not able to work with a DSL line.

The fax modem in your AIO is an analog device and cannot be used on an ISDN, DSL, or PBX digital phone service. However, you can connect certain devices to your AIO that let you use the fax function in addition to these digital phone services.

To connect without an unsupported line:
Connect an active telephone cable from the AIO to the telephone wall jack.

To connect with an unsupported line:
If you use an ISDN phone service, you can connect to an analog telephone port (an R-interface port) on an ISDN terminal adapter.
For more help and to request an R-interface port, contact the ISDN provider.
If you use a DSL (Digital Subscriber Line) phone service, you can connect to a DSL filter or router that will allow for some analog (rather than digital) use.
If you use a PBX phone service, you can install an analog phone line for a fax machine.

If this was working on the DSL let me know. I don't know the location but obviously a separate phone jack is the easiest. Let me know. If this helps you fix it you can rate this as fixed. If you are just going to rate this as helpful I'd rather you please not rate it and just add a comment and say thanks for the info.
If you need more help just add a comment and I'll be glad to assist you further. Thanks.
