Are you new to the internet? I am going to assume that you are and forgive me if I am writing in too simplified a manner. Is your son on the msn homepage? As in ? If he is, then internet explorer is open. You can access anything you want from the msn page but if you would like a another place to go so that you can search the internet at will, in the tool bar at the top of the screen if you click on "tools", it will drop down a menu. Move down the menu and click on internet options. This will open up a smaller window. The front tab is "general". On this small page you will see a sentence regarding setting your homepage and a box. You can delete what is in the box, and type in: Click on apply and ok and the window will close.I use this as my homepage because it is just a search engine. You can type whatever you are looking for in the search box and hit enter or go and it will give you a list of pages that match where you want to go. You then click on the one you want and you are off. To get back to the google page at anytime just click on the little "HOUSE" icon on the toolbar that indicates your homepage. As you become accustomed to using the internet you will see that there are several search engines and you can change your homepage anytime you want by following the above procedure. Just experiment going places and seeing things.

On the off chance that you CANNOT get on the internet, then do this:

Click on "tools" and "internet options" again. This time click on the Security tab and make sure that your security is not set so high that it is keeping you from browsing on internet explorer. Just set it to the default level for now (remember to click apply and ok) and if you change your mind later you can raise it a bit higher.

Which security software do you have? (Norton..McAfee..Trend Micro..???)You may want to make some adjustments there on what or not you want your children to see, Let me know and we can discuss this when you are ready.

But first let's get you browsing the internet.

One final possiblity. There are several browsers out there Internet explorer is one. You probably have it most people do, but if you don't see it in your hardrive (Drive "C") folders then you need to let me know. To find that you just click on the "MY COMPUTER" icon on your desktop or in your START menu and it will open up and show you your drives. You can click on "C" and scan the folders for internet explorer. If you don't see it just click on the My "programs" folder and it will be in there.

If you have any other questions, please do not hesitate to ask. I will be glad to help.

I have installed my wbr-1310 to my home computer. My internet explorer works fine on this computer. I tried my laptop which has a netgear adapter and it is connected to the router. I have tried to open...

Check if the Wireless computer is connected correctly to the Wireless Router, and if yes then try to access and check if you have that Web page opened or not, if not thenn check the Wireless IP address of the Laptop and make sure it should be in the same range of the router, or else the Wireless computer will not connect to Internet.

MSN Message error 80048820, unable to signin

- While you try to Sign in MSN Messenger you getting an error message with the no. 80048820
- Unable to Sing in

Probably reasons-
- Your system time/date incorrect
- Internet Proxy setting incorrect
- softpub.dll disable/missing
- Firewall does not allow to access, etc.



- Remove Internet Explorer proxy server settings and check the 'Automatically detect settings'.
- Launch Internet Explorer, click "Tools" and then click Internet Options. From the Internet Options dialog box, go to the Connections tab. Click LAN Setting. Uncheck the Use a proxy server for your LAN checkbox. Finally tick/check: 'Automatically detect settings'.

- Correct the computer system's Time/Day as current (if required).

- Click Start (Button), and then click Run, type regsvr32 softpub.dll click ok.

- Turn off the firewall. Check firewall settings such as Norton: "Block access to secure sites". If this cures the problem, make sure that Microsoft's MSN Messenger is allowed full access through your firewall.
